TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 18 Florida State (1-0) defeated VMI (0-1) by a final score of 8-7 in front of 5,882 fans at the grand opening of Dick Howser Stadium Saturday afternoon. The crowd was the eighth largest crowd in school history. Sophomore left-hander Hunter Jones pitched six innings giving up four runs (all unearned) and struck out a career-high eight batters in the first weekend start of his career. Jones retired 16 of the last 17 batters he faced to help FSU to a 6-4 lead heading into the seventh.

In the top of the eighth trailing 7-4, the Keydets tied the game at seven apiece. Derrick Smith's RBI-double down the right line scored Eddy Martinez-Esteve in the bottom of the ninth for the win. Martinez-Esteve had reached on a walk.

Kevin Lynch earned the win for FSU after working the final two innings in relief. Lynch recorded three strikeouts and allowed one run on two VMI hits.

The Seminoles got off to a rough start as VMI scored three runs in the top of the first. After a pair of walks to Brandon Massenburg and Zach Kennedy to lead off the inning, Kelly Sweppenhiser scored from second on Hunter Jones' throwing error to third. Jon Wade's grounder was the misplayed, allowing Massenburg and Kennedy to score and make it 3-0.

Florida State answered with two runs in the bottom half of the first to cut the Keydet lead to 3-2. Shane Robinson led of the bottom of the first with a walk and moved to third on a Stephen Drew single up the middle. Robinson then scored on Martinez-Esteve's sacrifice fly to center. Smith's sacrifice fly with one out scored Drew from third.

FSU tied the score at four in the bottom of the second behind Bryan Zech's RBI-double to left. Ryne Malone tripled to center in his first career at bat before scoring on Zech's double. Zech then stole third before Matt Sauls' bunt plated him to make it 4-4.

The Seminoles took their first lead of the game at 5-4 in the third as Smith hit his second career home run, a deep fly ball over the fence in right. FSU extended its lead to 6-4 as Drew added another solo home run in the fifth.

Smith finished the day 2-for-2 with a home run, double and three RBI. Drew scored three runs on the afternoon while going 2-for-4 with a home run and a stolen base.

Jeff DeMara (0-1) took the loss for VMI after giving up one run on one hit in 1.1 innings of work.

Florida State and VMI will return to action on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Senior RHP Eddie Cannon will take the hill for the Seminoles while RHP J.J. Hollenbeck will start for the Keydets. The three-game series will conclude Monday at 2:00 p.m.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 18 Florida State (2-0) defeated VMI (0-2) by a final of 8-1 at Dick Howser Stadium Monday afternoon. The Seminoles held the Keydets hitless until the ninth inning and didn't allow a base runner until the fourth inning. Right-hander Eddie Cannon (1-0) earned the win while recording three strikeouts in a predetermined four-inning start. Mark Sauls followed with three no-hit innings and Brian Schultz added a perfect eighth.

FSU took the early lead with two runs in the bottom of the first. Shane Robinson led off the inning with a single through the left side and moved to third on a single from Stephen Drew and an Eddy Martinez-Esteve walk. Robinson later scored on a sacrifice fly to right from Derrick Smith and Drew scored the final run of the inning on Gibbs Chapman's bunt single.

The Seminole increased the lead to 3-0 in the second after Zech scored on Drew's fielder's choice grounder to first base. Zech led off the inning with a walk and moved to second when Matt Sauls drew a walk as well and then advanced to third on Robinson's flyout to right.

In the bottom of the fourth, Florida State added four more runs highlighted by Chapman's three-run triple down the right line.

Aaron Cheesman scored in the seventh inning on a sacrifice fly from Matt Sauls to give Florida State an 8-0 advantage.

The Keydets were held hitless until the ninth inning when center fielder Brandon Massenburg singled off Tyler Chambliss. Massenburg later scored on a single by Allan Wimmer to make the final score 8-1.

Cannon, in his second career start, retired his first nine batters and only allowed one base runner.

Chapman (2-for-4), Robinson (2-for-5), and Zech (2-for-3) led the Seminoles offensively with multi-hit games. Making his first career start, Chapman knocked in four runs.

J.J. Hollenbeck took the loss for VMI after working three innings and giving up three runs on three hits with four walks and one strikeout.

Florida State travels to Tempe next weekend for a three-game series with the 10th-ranked Arizona State Sun Devils. The series will be the season opener for ASU. Game times are set for Friday at 9:00 p.m., Saturday at 3:00 p.m. and Sunday at 3:00 p.m. (all times EST).

TEMPE, AZ - Junior catcher Tuffy Gosewisch had a two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the No. 10 Arizona State Sun Devils a thrilling 2-1 victory over No. 18 Florida State on opening night in front of 3,087 Friday night at Packard Stadium.

The Devils left 12 men on base and came within one out of ending its NCAA record 501 consecutive games scoring streak. Gosewisch led ASU at the plate, going 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles. ASU is now 26-2 all-time in season openers dating back to 1977 and are 9-1 under current head coach Pat Murphy. The last time ASU was shut out was on April 7, 1995 at USC and the last time at Packard Stadium was on May 14, 1989. Florida State drops to 2-1 on the season after opening the season with a pair of wins last weekend against VMI.

"I thought we played tremendous defense and really had two great pitching performances from Mousser and Zinicola," said Murphy. "We were uncharacteristically really tentative at the plate, but that will come. I am really proud of the way the guys battled all the way to the end."

Senior transfer Jeff Mousser (Tempe) made a memorable debut in a Sun Devil uniform, giving up three hits and striking out three in seven innings. Mousser prepped at Tempe's Marcos de Niza High School and spent the last three years at BYU. Freshman Zechry Zinicola (San Bernadino, Calif.) earned the victory his collegiate debut with two shutout innings.

Florida State starter Hunter Jones also gave a sterling performance, giving up four hits in five scoreless innings. Reliever Kevin Lynch suffered the loss, giving up one hit and two unearned runs.

The ninth-inning rally started with a one-out error on a throwing error by FSU second baseman Bryan Zech to allow senior designated hitter Nick Walsh to reach. Junior All-American Dustin Pedroia doubled to the right field gap to move Walsh to third and preseason All-American Jeff Larish was intentionally walked to load the bases. After reliever Rhett James struck out Travis Buck, Gosewisch delivered the game-winning double with a line drive that barely eluded the glove of right fielder Eddy Martinez-Esteve.

The Seminoles struck first with a single tally in the top of the third. Mousser gave up a two-out single to catcher Aaron Cheesman and a walk to leadoff hitter Shane Robinson. Preseason All-American Stephen Drew plated a run with a single through the right side.

TEMPE, AZ - The No. 10 Arizona State Sun Devil Baseball team earned another dramatic victory by scoring three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to earn a come-from-behind victory over No. 18 Florida State Seminoles on Saturday afternoon at Packard Stadium.

ASU freshmen Colin Curtis and Joe Persichina each had three hits and were the leading forces behind the ninth-inning rally. Curtis finished 3-for-5-with four RBI, including his first career home run, and tied the game with a two-run double with two outs in the ninth. Persichina tabbed the game-winner when he drilled a 1-1 offering from FSU closer Kevin Lynch into center field to score Curtis from second base. ASU also took the series opener Friday night by scoring two runs in the bottom of the ninth in a 2-1 victory and will look for the series sweep Sunday at 1 p.m. Florida State falls to 2-2 on the season with the loss.

The late rally capped a steady comeback that saw the Devils trail 6-0 after the first inning. Sophomore left-hander Erik Averill relished in his new role of long-relief, limiting the Seminoles to only four hits and one run in five innings. Freshman Pat Bresnehan picked up the victory with two-third of an inning of scoreless relief.

"Wow, this isn't your conventional way to win games, but, we'll take it," said ASU head coach Pat Murphy. "We didn't play great, but the spirit of this team is unbelievable. They really work well together and believe in their abilities. It is pretty special to see our younger guys come through in the end like that and play some big roles."

The Seminoles jumped out to the early lead with a six-run first inning to chase ASU starter Brett Bordes. Designated hitter Eddy Martinez-Esteve drilled a two-run home run to start the rally. Second baseman Bryan Zech followed with a run-scoring double and left fielder Derrick Smith capped the inning with a two-out, three-run home run.

Preseason All-American Stephen Drew, younger brother of major leaguers Tim and J.D. Drew, added to the FSU lead with a solo homer of reliever Ty Marotz to lead off the second. After the Devils cut the lead to 7-4 with a three-run third, Martinez-Esteve added his second homer of the game off lefty reliever Pat Cassa to give FSU the 8-4 lead.

Curtis' solo homer to lead off the sixth again brought ASU to within three runs, 9-6, and a two-out, run-scoring single from junior Jeff Larish in the eighth cut the lead to two.

FSU freshman reliever Tyler Chambliss quickly retired the first two batters to lead off the ninth and then gave up a sharp single to freshman designated hitter Zechry Zinicola. After a hit-by-pitch to second baseman Josh Asanovich (Gold Canyon), Curtis cleared the bases with a double into the left field corner to tie the game. Persichina followed with a single to drive home Curtis with the game-winning run. The entire ninth-inning rally involved players that are rookies in the Sun Devil program this year.

The Sun Devils (2-0) and Seminoles (2-2) conclude the three-game series Sunday at 1 p.m. Junior college transfer Jason Urquidez (0-0, 0.00 ERA) is schedule to make his ASU debut against FSU sophomore right-hander Mark Sauls (0-0, 0.00 ERA).

TEMPE, AZ - Arizona State sophomore Travis Buck was 3-for-3 with four RBI and starting pitcher Jason Urquidez registered nine strikeouts in five innings to lead the No. 10 Sun Devils to a series sweep over Florida State with a 12-6 win Sunday in front of 3,386 at Packard Stadium.

The Sun Devils handed FSU its first non-conference sweep since 2001 and are off to a 3-0 start for the third year in a row. ASU won each of the first two games of the series in dramatic fashion, scoring two runs in the ninth in Friday's 2-1 win and three runs in the final at-bat in Saturday's 10-9 victory. FSU falls to 2-3 overall and lost a series to the Devils for the first time since the first meeting in 1987.

Urquidez (Simi Valley, Calif.) made his long-awaited Sun Devil debut a memorable one, striking out nine batters and allowing only one run and six hits in five innings. Urquidez was a junior college All-American at Central Arizona College. A pair of freshmen helped seal the win with big performances out of the bullpen. Lefty Josh Blake (Overland Park, Kan.) had four strikeouts in an inning and a third and right-hander Quentin Andes (Albuquerque, N.M.) gave up only one hit and struck out four in the final 2.1 innings. Andes picked up the save after entering the game with ASU only up three runs.

Buck (Richland, Wash.) had a breakout game after going 1-for-9 heading into the series. The 2003 Freshman All-American reached base in all six of his plate appearances and recorded four RBI. His run-scoring double in the first inning plated ASU's first run of the game. Junior All-American Dustin Pedroia (Woodland, Calif.) added a 2-for-5 performance with a pair of doubles and three runs scored.

FSU starter Mark Sauls took the loss after giving up four hits and three runs in three innings of work. The former third-round draft pick of the Minnesota Twins walked four and struck out one in his first start of the year. Seven Seminole pitchers combined to walk 15 batters in the game.

After a 1-2-3 first inning from Urquidez, the Devils wasted little time extending their NCAA record consecutive games scoring streak to 504. Pedroia and Buck tabbed back-to-back doubles and Nick Cadena (Glendale) and freshman Colin Curtis (Issaquah, Wash.) followed with run-scoring singles to stake ASU to a 3-0 lead.

FSU looked to have a rally going in the third with a run in and the bases loaded with no outs, but Urquidez struck out two and forced a pop up to end the threat. After the single Seminole tally in the third, the Devils extended their lead to 7-1 with a four-run fourth inning. Junior Jeff Larish (Tempe) drilled a double off the right field fence to start the rally and junior second baseman Josh Asanovich followed with a two-out, bases loaded double to bring home three runs. Pedroia's second double and a two-run single from Buck in the seventh extended ASU's lead to 12-6.

FSU crept to within three runs after a three-run sixth inning and a two-run seventh. After giving up a two-run single, Blake struck out Matt Sauls, All-American Stephen Drew and Eddy Martinez-Esteve to end the sixth inning. Andes followed in similar fashion in the seventh, walking the first batter he faced to load the bases, and then coaxed Drew into a ground ball back to the mound to end the inning.

Florida State (2-3) returns to action next weekend with two games against Jacksonville University, Saturday's contest in Tallahassee and the Sunday game in Jacksonville.

FLORIDA STATE 14, JACKSONVILLE 9
02/15/2004, JACKSONVILLE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

JACKSONVILLE, FL - In the earliest meeting of the series between the Seminoles and Dolphins, No. 24 Florida State (3-3) held off a late Jacksonville (2-1) rally for a 14-9 victory at Alexander Brest Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Seminoles and Dolphins combined for eight home runs, while Aaron Cheesman and Derrick Smith each recorded career-high's with four-RBIs in the win. Sophomore left-hander Hunter Jones (1-0) earned his first win of the season as he allowed five runs on seven hits and struck out six JU batters in five innings of work. Rhett James picked up the save after pitching the final 1.1 innings.

FSU scored two quick runs in the top of the first to take an early 2-0 lead. Robinson and Drew recorded back-to-back hits to lead off the game and both moved up a base on Eddy Martinez-Esteve's fielder's choice groundout to third. Gibbs Chapman plated Robinson on a groundout to short and Drew would score on an errant throw by Jacksonville second baseman Sean McHugh as he tried to turn the double play.

The Seminoles broke the game wide open as they added five unearned runs in the second inning to make the lead 7-0. Highlighting the inning was Derrick Smith's two-out grand slam to right center, his third home run of the season. The grand slam was the first of the season for Florida State and the first since Tony McQuade crushed one at Duke on May 16, 2003. FSU went on to win that game 11-6.

Jacksonville got on the board with one-run in the bottom of the second behind a lead off home run from Orlando Diaz. The home run marked Seminole starter Hunter Jones' first earned run of the season. Jones had gone 12 innings without an earned run to start the 2004 season.

Aaron Cheesman recorded his second-career home run, a two-run blast to left field. The round-tripper gave the Seminoles a 9-1 lead in the top of the third inning.

The Dolphins cut the lead to four at 9-5 with a combined three home runs in the fourth and fifth innings. First baseman Gordie Gronkowski hit a two-run homer to left center in the fourth while Clint Hart and McHugh smacked back-to-back home runs in the fifth for the four runs. The back-to-back home runs were the first for an FSU opponent since Colt Morton and Tim Coffield hit two consecutive for NC State on March 22, 2003.

FSU added three more runs in the seventh and eighth innings to double-up the Dolphins at 12-6. Danny Wardell hit his first home run of the season, a solo shot to left field in the seventh and Cheesman's two-out two-RBI single up the middle in the eighth gave the Seminoles the six-run lead. JU had cut into the lead with one run in the seventh.

Jacksonville tried to make things interesting with three runs on one hit in the eighth. Florida State would hold on for a 14-9 win after adding two runs in the top of the ninth including freshman Dennis Anderson's first career home run. Rhett James helped seal the deal as he recorded his first save of the season as he shut down the Dolphins in the final 1.1 innings.

Dennis Robinson (0-1) took his first loss of the season for JU as he allowed nine runs (three earned) on seven hits with two strikeouts in three innings of work.

Florida State will host Jacksonville on Monday at 3:30 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium. The game is being made up as Saturday's game was postponed due to rain. Senior RHP Eddie Cannon (1-0, 2.57 ERA) will take the hill for the Seminoles and will face JU right-hander Brett Nagy (0-0, 9.64 ERA).

FLORIDA STATE 8, JACKSONVILLE 3
02/16/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 24 Florida State (4-3) used a strong performance from starter Eddie Cannon to defeat Jacksonville (2-2) by a final score of 8-3 at Dick Howser Stadium Monday afternoon. Cannon (2-0), a senior right-hander, tied a career-high with nine strikeouts and only allowed one hit in six scoreless innings of work. Eddy Martinez-Esteve and Gibbs Chapman helped the Seminoles jump out to a 5-0 lead with home runs in the bottom of the first inning.

Martinez-Esteve and Chapman each belted two-run home runs and Ryne Malone added an RBI-single as the Seminoles batted around in the first to take a commanding 5-0 lead. Shane Robinson led off with a walk and scored on Martinez-Esteve's homer off the scoreboard in left. After a Derrick Smith double, Chapman followed with a towering home run to right. Bryan Zech reached on a bunt single and eventually came around to score on Malone's base hit to right.

FSU added two more runs in the seventh to take a 7-0 lead. Robinson led off the inning with a single and moved to third thanks to a pair of wild pitches. After a Stephen Drew walk, Robinson scored when Jacksonville first baseman Gordie Gronkowski's failed pickoff attempt of Drew sailed high past the second baseman. Drew would later score on Marinez-Esteve's single to right center.

JU cut the lead to 7-3 with three runs in the top of the eighth. With Mark Sauls on in relief of Cannon, an RBI-double from Daniel Murphy and two RBI-singles from Pete Clifford and Joe Steward brought the Dolphins within four.

FSU added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth when Brant Peacher was hit by pitch with the bases loaded.

Chapman led the Seminoles offensively, going 3-for-3 with a two-run homer. Martinez-Esteve (2-for-4) and Derrick Smith (2-for-3) added two hits apiece. Martinez-Esteve tied a season-high with three RBI and also had a two-run home run.

Right-hander Brett Nagy (0-1) suffered his first loss of the season for the Dolphins. Nagy worked six innings and gave up five runs on nine hits with three strikeouts and two walks. All five runs charged to Nagy came in the first inning.

Florida State will host Oral Roberts this weekend, February 20-22, in a three-game series at Dick Howser Stadium. Game times are set for Friday at 3:30 p.m., Saturday at 2:00 p.m. and Sunday at 1:00 p.m.

FLORIDA STATE 8, ORAL ROBERTS 3
02/20/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 24 Florida State (5-3) used a five-run eighth inning to defeat Oral Roberts (3-1) by a final score of 8-3 in front of 2,219 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Friday afternoon. The Seminole pitching staff combined for 12 strikeouts as senior right-hander Rhett James picked up his first win of the season. James allowed two runs on two hits with a season-high four strikeouts in three innings of relief.

Starter Hunter Jones pitched five strong innings and only allowed one run on five hits while striking out seven ORU batters. Derrick Smith led Florida State offensively, going 3-for-4 with two runs scored and one RBI. Along with Smith, four other Seminoles recorded multi-hit games (Stephen Drew 2-for-4, Eddy Martinez-Esteve 2-for-4, Gibbs Chapman 2-for-3 and Matt Sauls 2-for-3).

The Seminoles took an early 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning. Derrick Smith led off the inning with a single to left and scored when Gibbs Chapman roped his second home run of the season over the left field wall.

Oral Roberts finally got on the board with one run in the top of the fourth inning. Josh Lex's two-out solo home run, his third of the season, cut FSU's lead to 2-1.

Florida State extended its lead to 3-1 as Stephen Drew belted a leadoff home run to right center in the sixth. Drew's homer was his third of the season and the second of the day for the Seminoles.

The Golden Eagles rallied to tie the game at three apiece with two runs in the top of the eighth. Jeff Tuttle walked and Lex hit his second home run of the game, a two-out, two-run blast to left.

FSU answered in a big way with five runs in the eighth inning. Drew singled to right to lead off the inning and Martinez-Esteve followed with a single to left to put runners on first and second. Smith then ripped an RBI-single to center to plate Drew from second in what proved to be the game-winner. Dennis Anderson's sacrifice bunt moved the runners up a base and Aaron Cheesman's two-run single to center put the Seminoles up 6-3. Florida State added two more runs for the final of 8-3 as Sauls drew a bases loaded walk to plate Smith and Bryan Zech came home to score when reliever Justin Ramsey was sighted for a balk.

Connor Tinkler took the loss in relief for Oral Roberts after allowing three runs on three hits to start the eighth inning. Golden Eagle starter Dennis Bigley worked 7.0 innings and allowed three runs on nine hits with one walk and six strikeouts.

Florida State and Oral Roberts will take the field again on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium. Senior RHP Eddie Cannon (1-0, 1.38 ERA) will take the hill for the Seminoles and will face ORU left-hander Taylor McIntyre (1-0, 0.00 ERA). The series will conclude Sunday at 1:00 p.m.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 24 Florida State (6-3) defeated Oral Roberts (3-2) by a final score of 6-4 in front of 2,873 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Saturday afternoon. For the second time this season, senior starter Eddie Cannon (3-0) tied a career-high with nine strikeouts as he picked up his third win of the season. Cannon allowed three runs on six hits and did not walk a batter in 6.2 innings. Kevin Lynch recorded his first save of the season as he worked a scoreless inning.

FSU scored first with two runs in the bottom of the first inning. Shane Robinson and Stephen Drew both drew walks to start the inning and moved up on a double steal. Danny Wardell plated Robinson with a sacrifice fly to right while Drew moved to third. Drew then scored on a wild pitch from Golden Eagle starter Taylor McIntyre for the 2-0 lead.

Oral Roberts took its first lead of the series in the top of the second inning. Dennis Bigley and Grant Plumley hit back-to-back singles and right fielder Kevin Lamb blasted his first home run of the season, a three-run shot to left-center, to give the Golden Eagles a 3-2 lead.

The Seminoles tied the game at 3-3 with a run in the third inning. Aaron Cheesman was hit by pitch to lead off the inning and advanced to second on a groundout to second by Drew. Cheesman scored the tying run when Eddy Martinez-Esteve's RBI-double hit a double high off the screen in right center.

A pair of RBI-singles from Derrick Smith and Bryan Zech in the fifth inning gave Florida State a 5-3 lead. Robinson led off the fifth with a bunt single and moved to second as Martinez-Esteve reached on an error by third baseman Boomer Welles. Smith's single through the right side plated Robinson and moved Martinez-Esteve to third as the Seminoles took the lead. Martinez-Esteve later scored on Zech's RBI-single through the left side to give FSU the lead.

Florida State got another run in the sixth inning to make it 6-3. Ryne Malone doubled to right center, advanced to third courtesy of a sacrifice bunt from Gibbs Chapman before scoring on a balk from ORU reliever Tim Robertson.

ORU cut the lead to two at 6-4 in the top of the eighth. Matt VanDerBosch singled on a bunt to first base, stole second and scored on Bigley's RBI-single to right-center.

Cheesman was the only Seminoles with more than one hit, going 2-for-3 with one run scored. Robinson led FSU with two runs scored.

The three-game series between FSU and ORU will conclude on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium. Sophomore RHP Mark Sauls (0-1, 7.04 ERA) will face ORU left-hander Matt Hancock (1-0, 1.80 ERA).

FLORIDA STATE 4, ORAL ROBERTS 3
02/22/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 24 Florida State (7-3) downed Oral Roberts (3-3) by a final score of 4-3 to give head coach Mike Martin his 1300th career win on Sunday afternoon. Martin becomes the fifth active head coach in NCAA history to reach the 1300-win plateau and the eighth all-time. The win marked the fifth straight for the Seminoles. With Gibbs Chapman on second, right fielder Matt Sauls ripped an RBI-single through the left side to propel the Seminoles to a 4-3 victory over the Golden Eagles.

Rhett James earned his first win of the season after working the final 3.2 innings. James only allowed one run on four hits with two strikeouts and no walks. FSU starter Mark Sauls had an impressive outing as well, giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits in 5.1 innings. Sauls struck out five and did not walk a batter.

The Seminoles scored first with one run in the bottom of the first inning. Sauls and Stephen Drew both drew walks and Sauls moved to third on a fly ball to right by Eddy Martinez-Esteve. Sauls later scored on a sacrifice bunt by Danny Wardell for the early 1-0 lead.

FSU's lead grew to 3-0 with two more runs in the second. Brant Peacher singled to center and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Shane Robinson. Aaron Cheesman's single to center plated Peacher and Dennis Anderson scored the second run of the inning on Drew's RBI-single to right. Anderson previously reached on a walk, moved to second on Cheesman's single and advanced to third on Sauls' groundout before scoring.

The Golden Eagles got on the board with a pair of runs in the fifth and sixth innings to make the score 3-2. Dennis Bigley was hit by pitch, advanced to third after a wild pitch and a groundout by Ricky Rivera before scoring on Boomer Welles' RBI-single up the middle in the fifth inning. In the sixth, Matt VanDerBosch reached on a fielding error by pitcher Mark Sauls, stole second and scored when Brian Hanson's single down the right line ricocheted off the first base bag into right field.

Oral Roberts rallied to tie the game at 3-3 in the top of the eighth. VanDerBosch singled and moved to third on a single through the left side by second baseman Brian Hanson. Grant Plumley's RBI-groundout to third plated VanDerBosch to tie the game.

In the bottom of the ninth, Chapman led off the inning with a walk and advanced to second on Cheesman's sacrifice bunt. With a runner on second, the Golden Eagles brought in reliever Dane Towery to face Sauls who laced a 1-1 pitch through the left side of the infield to score Chapman for the game winner.

Adam Lesko took the loss for ORU after only allowing one run on one hit with eight strikeouts and four walks in 6.2 innings of relief. Reliever Dane Towery gave up the game winning hit to Sauls in the bottom of the ninth with Chapman on second.

Florida State will return to action next weekend for a three-game series with UNC-Asheville at Dick Howser Stadium. Game times are set for Friday at 3:30 p.m., Saturday at 2:00 p.m. and Sunday at 1:00 p.m.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 22 Florida State (7-4) fell to UNC-Asheville (3-3) by a final score of 2-1 on Friday afternoon at Dick Howser Stadium. Hunter Jones (1-1) took the first loss of his career after allowing just two runs (one earned) on three hits in seven innings of work. Jones struck out five Bulldog batters and walked only two. UNCA starter Steve Cook pitched a complete game and only allowed four Seminole hits while striking out seven with five walks and one unearned run. The loss snapped FSU's five game winning streak.

The two teams combined for two and half innings of no hit baseball before Shane Robinson's double to right center broke the drought. Robinson later scored from second when Bulldog first baseman Steve Sherman misplayed a throw from shortstop Josh Coyle on Eddy Martinez-Esteve's grounder that would have ended the inning.

UNC-Asheville tied the game at one in the top of the fifth inning. Steve Burnich drew a two out walk and stole second before scoring on Ben Padgett's double down the right line.

The Bulldogs scored an unearned run for what proved to be the game-winner in the seventh inning. Right fielder Charles Pippitt singled to right and advanced to second as Burnich reached on a fielding error by Gibbs Chapman. Pippitt then scored from second for the go ahead run when Padgett's grounder was misplayed by Stephen Drew as FSU committed back-to-back errors.

Rhett James pitched the final two innings for the Seminoles, only allowing one hit with one walk and one strikeout.

Florida State and UNC-Asheville will return to action at Dick Howser Stadium at 2:00 on Saturday. Seminole right-hander Eddie Cannon (3-0, 2.29 ERA) will face Bulldog right-hander Aaron Rembert (1-1, 2.61 ERA).

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 22 Florida State (8-4) shutdown UNC-Asheville (3-4) by a final score of 8-0 in front of 3,036 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Eddie Cannon (4-0) picked up his fourth win of the season as he only threw 88 pitches in eight innings of work. Cannon struck out seven Bulldog batters with no walks and only allowed four hits in the win. Stephen Drew led the Seminole offense going 4-for-5 with a double and two runs scored. Eddy Martinez-Esteve also had a strong performance as he went 3-for-5 with a double and a home run. The shutout was the first of the season for FSU and the first since the Seminoles blanked Jacksonville 6-0 in the 2003 Tallahassee Regional.

The Seminoles opened the scoring with one-run in the bottom of the third inning. With one out, Gibbs Chapman doubled off the fence in right center and later scored on Stephen Drew's single up the middle for the early 1-0 lead.

Florida State's lead grew to 3-0 with a pair of runs in the sixth inning. Brant Peacher reached on a fielding error to start the sixth and advanced to third on Danny Wardell's single through the left side. Peacher stole home on a double steal attempt with Wardell, but Bryan Zech drew a walk to put runners on first and second. Zech then moved to third as Aaron Cheesman was also walked before reaching third when Matt Sauls grounded into a bases loaded 5-2-3 double play. Zech scored the second run of the inning on a wild pitch from Chris Nigro.

FSU made the score 4-0 with another run in the seventh. Dennis Anderson drew a walk to lead off the inning and moved to third on Drew's single to right center before scoring on a balk by Bulldog pitcher Nigro.

The Seminoles put the game out of reach with four runs on three extra base hits in the eighth. Shane Robinson and Drew each had RBI-doubles while Martinez-Esteve recorded his fourth home run of the season, a two-run blast over the fence in right.

Aaron Rembert (1-2) took the loss for UNC-Asheville as he allowed three runs (one earned) with five strikeouts and two walks in five innings of work.

Matt DiBlasi pitched a scoreless ninth inning for the Seminoles with one walk and one strikeout.

Florida State and UNC-Asheville will conclude the three-game series at Dick Howser Stadium on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Right-hander Mark Sauls (0-1, 4.85 ERA) will take the mound for the Seminoles.

FLORIDA STATE 5, NEBRASKA 3
03/05/2004, Dairy Queen Classic, Minneapolis, Mn
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - Derrick Smith's RBI-triple pushed No. 22 Florida State (10-4) past Nebraska (5-2) by a final score of 5-3 on Friday afternoon in the Minneapolis Metrodome. Stephen Drew paced the Seminoles offensively going 3-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored while Kevin Lynch (2-2) picked up the win after working 1.1 scoreless innings with no hits and one strikeout. Freshman Brian Schultz earned his first career save after shutting down the Cornhuskers in the ninth inning.

"This tournament is important for our baseball team," said head coach Mike Martin. "Getting this win over Nebraska was big for us because it's our first win against a ranked opponent."

Nebraska scored first with a run in each of the first two innings. Jesse Boyer singled on a high chopper to the shortstop and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Jake Mullinax in the first. Alex Gordon's RBI-single to center plated Boyer for the game's first run. Kevin Belcher scored the second run on Joe Simokaitis' RBI-single to make it 2-0 Nebraska.

The Seminoles tied the game at two with two runs in the bottom of the third inning. Shane Robinson and Drew each singled before Eddy Martinez-Esteve was hit by a pitch to load the bases with no outs. Robinson and Drew both scored when Aaron Cheesman's grounder to second was misplayed by Mullinax.

Drew led off the fifth inning with a 400+ foot solo home run into the upper deck of the Metrodome to put FSU up 3-2. The homer was his fourth of the season.

The Cornhuskers had the bases loaded with no outs in the seventh, but the Seminoles held them to just one run. Joe Simokaitis doubled and later scored on Gordon's sacrifice fly to center to tie the game at 3-3 in the seventh.

With one out in the eighth inning, Cheesman singled to center and then scored when Smith tripled off the right field wall to break the tie. Bryan Zech's RBI-single up the middle plated Smith to make it 5-3.

FSU starter Hunter Jones worked 5.1 innings and allowed two runs on six hits with four strikeouts, but did not factor into the decision.

Mike Sillman (0-1) took the loss for Nebraska after giving up both runs in the eighth inning on three hits.

"Nebraska played beautiful baseball," said Martin. "Their center fielder made a great catch against the wall and the third baseman turned a nice double play to end an inning. We could have scored four more runs if not for their outstanding defense. This is the first time we've competed against them, but I've watched them over the years from afar. I was impressed with them before we played them and after today's game I'm even more impressed."

Florida State will face West Virginia on Saturday at 1:05 p.m. EST. Sophomore Mark Sauls (0-1, 4.00 ERA) will take the mound for the Seminoles. FSU will conclude the Dairy Queen classic on Sunday at 4:05 p.m.EST against host Minnesota.

FLORIDA STATE 11, WEST VIRGINIA 5
03/06/2004, Dairy Queen Classic, Minneapolis, Mn
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - No. 22 Florida State (11-4) defeated West Virginia (1-6) by a final score of 11-5 on Saturday afternoon in the Minneapolis Metrodome. Stephen Drew had another impressive outing as he went 2-for-5 with a double, triple, three RBI and a run scored. The Seminoles stole six bases in the game as Shane Robinson and Brandon Manasa each had two. Rhett James (3-0) picked up the win after working 2.2 innings with two unearned runs and two strikeouts. Three Seminoles (Drew, Eddy Martinez-Esteve and Robinson) recorded a multi-hit game.

This was a good win for us," said head coach Mike Martin. "This was a win that proves our guys are beginning to understand that they can't play well one day and then come out and play poorly the next. We played well enough to get it done today."

FSU took a 2-0 lead in the top of the second inning. Aaron Cheesman and Brant Peacher both singled and then moved up a base on Bryan Zech's sacrifice bunt. Matt Sauls' sacrifice fly to left plated Cheesman and Robinson's two-out single to left scored Peacher from third.

Martinez-Esteve led off the third inning with a triple to left field and scored on a wild pitch from Moutaineer starter Zac Cline to increase the Seminole lead to 3-0.

Florida State scored in its third straight inning with two more runs in the fourth to push the lead to 5-0. Stephen Drew's RBI-double to center scored Zech, who reached on a fielding error by the shortstop, advanced to second on Sauls' single and stole third before coming home. Sauls stole second and third before scoring on Dennis Anderson's sacrifice fly to center.

West Virginia scored three runs (two earned) in the fifth to cut the Florida State lead to 5-3. After a pair of singles from Jake Serfass and Grant Psomas put runners on first and second, Lee Fritz's single to left field was misplayed by Derrick Smith and ran all the way to the wall allowing all three to score.

The Seminoles rebounded with two runs in the sixth. Sauls and Ryne Malone both were walked to lead off the inning before Drew's triple to right center scored both runners. Smith's groundout to shortstop plated Drew and made it 8-3. Drew's triple was the 13th of his career and ties him with brother J.D. Drew for third on Florida State's career triple list.

After the Mountaineers scored two more runs in the bottom of the sixth, FSU scored three in the seventh and eighth innings for the final score of 11-5. Senior second baseman Bryan Zech hit his first home run of the season in the seventh.

Florida State starter Mark Sauls received a no-decision after working 4.1 innings with three runs (two earned) on seven hits. Sauls sruck out four and walked four on the day.

Zac Cline took the loss for West Virginia after allowing five runs (three earned) on seven hits with four strikeouts in four innings of work.

FSU will conclude the Dairy Queen classic on Sunday at 4:05 p.m.EST against host Minnesota. Eddie Cannon (4-0, 1.63 ERA) is the scheduled starter for the Seminoles.

MINNESOTA 6, FLORIDA STATE 1
03/07/2004, MINNEAPOLIS, MN, Dairy Queen Classic
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - No. 22 Florida State (11-5) fell to Minnesota (4-4) by a final score of 6-1 on Saturday afternoon in the Minneapolis Metrodome as 3,005 looked on. Minnesota went 3-0 over the weekend to take the Dairy Queen Classic Championship. The Seminoles finished 2-1, defeating Nebraska and West Virginia.

"Minnesota dominated us today," said head coach Mike Martin. "You have to give them credit because they outplayed us in every aspect of the game. Their pitchers did an outstanding job. They allowed two runs in the last two games of the tournament."

The Golden Gophers scored an unearned run in the bottom of the first to take a 1-0 lead. Sam Steidl singled and later moved to third on a failed pickoff attempt from pitcher Eddie Cannon. Mike Mee's single to right plated Steidl for the games first run.

FSU answered with a run in the top of the second to tie the game at one. Derrick Smith and Bryan Zech both singled with one out to put runners on first and second and Ryne Malone's RBI-single to right plated Smith from second to make it 1-1.

Minnesota broke the game open in the bottom of the second with four runs. Steidl's two-run single and Tony Leseman's two-run double to left center put the Golden Gophers up 5-1. Minnesota added another run in the seventh to complete the scoring at 6-1.

Golden Gopher starter Matt Loberg (1-0) got the win after allowing one run on six hits over seven innings. Loberg walked one and struck out three.

FSU starter Eddie Cannon (4-1) took his first loss of the season. Cannon gave up five runs (four earned) on seven hits, struck out six and walked two.

Four Seminoles were named to the Dairy Queen Classic All-Tournament team. Shortstop Stephen Drew, catcher Aaron Cheesman, right fielder Eddy Martinez-Esteve and second baseman Bryan Zech represented Florida State on the team. Steidl was named the tournament's most outstanding player.

Florida State returns to Tallahassee for a pair of mid-week games (Tuesday against Illinois State and Wednesday versus Butler). Both games are scheduled to start at 6:00 p.m.

FLORIDA STATE 11, BUTLER 2
03/10/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 19 Florida State (13-5) used 21 different players and pounded out 16 hits to defeat Butler (4-6) by a final score of 11-2 on Wednesday night at Dick Howser Stadium. Brian Chambers (1-0) picked up the win in his first-career start while working a predetermined four innings. Chambers allowed two runs on five hits with two walks and five strikeouts. Right fielder Eddy Martinez-Esteve led the Seminoles offensively, going 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI.

The Seminoles took an early lead with one run in the bottom of the first inning. Bryan Zech reached on a throwing error by third baseman Dale Mueller and advanced to third after the ball rolled into foul territory. Aaron Cheesman then plated Zech with a triple off the fence in center for the 1-0 lead.

FSU broke the game open with four runs in the second inning. Ryne Malone's RBI-single plated Shane Robinson and Zech's sacrifice fly to right field scored Malone to put the Seminoles up 3-0. Martinez-Esteve closed out the scoring with his fifth home run of the season, a two-run shot over the fence in right that made the score 5-0.

Florida State's lead grew to 7-0 with two more runs in the third. Robinson had an RBI-single and Matt Sauls added an RBI-double.

Clayton Deeb's RBI-single off the wall in right center with two outs scored Justin McKinley and Andy Bulla for the Bulldogs first two runs of the game to make the score of 7-2.

The Seminoles scored a pair of runs in the fourth and sixth innings while adding two more in the seventh for the final score of 11-2.

Four Seminoles recorded double-digit hits in the win. Matt Sauls (3-for-3) and Martinez-Esteve (3-for-5) each had three hits, while Robinson (2-for-3) and Cheesman (2-for-3) had two apiece.

Matt DiBlasi, Hunter Davis, Frank Radziwon, Rhett James and Tyler Chambliss each worked a scoreless inning of relief for the Tribe.

Randy Miles (1-1) took the loss for Butler as he allowed seven runs (four earned) on eight hits with one walk and four strikeouts.

Florida State will host Michigan State this weekend for a three-game series. Game times are set for Friday at 3:30 p.m., Saturday at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday at 1:00 p.m. FSU will start Hunter Jones on Friday, Eddie Cannon on Saturday and Mark Sauls on Sunday against the Spartans.

FLORIDA STATE 5, MICHIGAN STATE 4
03/12/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the Tallahassee Democrat, March 13, 2004, page 3C, by Steve Ellis.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Daniel Wardell, with an .089 average, had not given coach Mike Martin any reason to keep the faith in his struggling first baseman.

Florida State was trailing Michigan State by two runs in the bottom of the ninth but Martin resisted temptation. With two Seminoles on base, Martin walked out of his dugout, put his hand on Wardell's shoulder and told him:

"Whatever you do, get a good, aggressive swing at the ball. If he sends a slider up there, get a good swing at it."

And as a thrilled Martin said moments later, "He darn sure did."

The junior ripped into Bryan Gale's 151st pitch, a slider, and sent it over the left-field wall for a walk-off homer and a 5-4 FSU victory at Dick Howser Stadium.

"At the end of the game, I felt I was myself again," Wardell said. "It's been frustrating, very frustrating. I just wanted to go up there and show everybody I still had it.

"When I hit that, I knew and it felt great."

One swing of the bat may not have only revived Wardell offensively, but could also boost an FSU team that has struggled at the plate and is without leading hitter Stephen Drew this weekend because of a hip injury.

"Right there was the biggest game of the season thus far," Martin said. "It was certainly a great win for this young ballclub. I'm going to cut the music on (in the clubhouse) and let it go."

Gale held FSU (14-5) to seven hits entering the ninth. FSU scored its only runs prior to that in the first and sixth innings. Gibbs Chapman hit an RBI double to cut Michigan State's lead in half in the opening inning. And then, down 4-1, Eddy Martinez-Esteve hit a double down the left-field line for an RBI double in the sixth. Catcher Aaron Cheesman extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a single to open the ninth. And with two outs, Shane Robinson battled Gale (0-1) for a single to set up Wardell's big hit.

"I can't say I never considered a pinch hitter there but I just felt like Danny Wardell has been in this position before," Martin said. "He had played in regionals and super regionals and needed a hit like that to get him going."

In addition to the ninth-inning hits by Robinson and Wardell, Martin also cited the play of Bryan Zech, who moved from second to fill in for Drew at shortstop. Ryan Malone started at second. Martin was also pleased with relievers Hunter Davis and Kevin Lynch. The bullpen allowed two hits and no runs in three innings.

FSU and Michigan State (4-5) will continue the series today at 7 p.m. with Eddie Cannon (4-1, 2.41 ERA) on the mound for the Seminoles.

FLORIDA STATE 11, MICHIGAN STATE 1
03/13/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 19 Florida State (15-5) scored at least two runs in each of the first four innings to defeat Michigan State (4-6) by a final score of 11-1 Saturday night in front of 3,161 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. Eddie Cannon (5-1) picked up the win after allowing just one run on five hits in six innings of work. Cannon tied a career-high with nine strikeouts and did not walk a batter. Matt DiBlasi, Frank Radziwon and Tyler Chambliss each pitched a scoreless inning of relief for the Seminoles.

"No question that was Florida State baseball," said head coach Mike Martin. "The credit goes to a group of guys that played very hard. I was very pleased with our discipline at the plate. This is a game as a coach you feel very good about because you are able to get a lot of guys in the game and I think we were able to improve on some things."

FSU scored two runs in the bottom half of the first inning to take the early lead. Bryan Zech singled to lead off the inning while Gibbs Chapman and Eddy Martinez-Esteve were both walked to load the bases with no outs. Zech and Chapman both scored when Aaron Cheesman doubled down the right field line. Cheesman extended his hitting streak to 13 games with the double.

The Seminoles pushed their lead to 5-0 with three more runs in the second. Brant Peacher and Matt Sauls walked and moved up a base on Dennis Anderson's sacrifice bunt to put runners on second and third. Zech's sacrifice fly to center plated Peacher and Sauls later scored from third on Martinez-Esteve's RBI-single to right. Chapman scored the final run of the inning on a wild pitch from Spartan reliever Adam White.

Michigan State's only run of the game came in the third inning as third baseman James Moreno hit a solo home run over the fence in right to make the score 5-1.

Florida State's lead grew to 7-1 in the third. Danny Wardell led off with a double off the fence in right center, moved to third on Peacher's sacrifice bunt before scoring on a bunt single from Sauls. Sauls stole second and third before coming home when the throw to third from MSU catcher Sean Walker's went into left field.

The Seminoles added three runs in the fourth to up the lead to 10-1 as Peacher, Sauls and Zech each recorded RBI-singles. FSU put up a single run in the sixth for the final score of 11-1.

Scott Koerber (0-3) took the loss for the Spartans after allowing five runs in 1.2 innings. Koerber had five walks and no strikeouts. Michigan State pitchers didn't record a strikeout until the sixth inning.

Four Seminoles had multi-hit performances (Zech 2-for-3, Peacher 2-for-2, Sauls 3-for-4 and Anderson 2-for-3) as FSU racked up a total of 13 hits. Sauls (3), Zech (2) and Cheesman (2) each had multi-RBI games.

Florida State and Michigan State will conclude the three-game series on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Sophomore right-hander Mark Sauls (0-1, 4.03 ERA) will take the mound for the Seminoles.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 19 Florida State (16-5) completed a three-game sweep of Michigan State (4-7) by a final score of 4-0 Sunday afternoon in front of 3,086 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. Mark Sauls (1-1) picked up his first win of the season after pitching five scoreless innings. Sauls had four strikeouts and two walks. Rhett James and Brian Schultz relieved Sauls and held the Spartans scoreless to give the Seminoles their second shutout of the season. Aaron Cheesman led the FSU offense, going 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored.

"The pitching staff did an outstanding job today," said Florida State head coach Mike Martin. "I've said it before and I'll say it again, Jamey Shouppe is the best pitching coach in the country. He's done an excellent job with this year's staff."

Ryne Malone hit his first home run of the season to lead off the fifth inning, a deep shot over the fence in right center, to give the Seminoles a 1-0 lead.

FSU added another run in the sixth to push the lead to 2-0. Cheesman singled and advanced to second on an errant throw from third baseman James Moreno. Derrick Smith's single to right moved Cheesman to third before he scored as Shane Robinson grounded into a 4-6-3 double play.

Michigan State put runners in scoring position in the sixth inning but James pitched strong to keep them off the board. With a runner on second and no outs, James entered the game in relief of Sauls and gave up a base hit to put runners on second and third with nobody out. James struck out the next three batters to preserve the shutout.

"Rhett did a good job of keeping his composure and getting us in the dugout without any runs scored," said Martin. "That was the key moment in the game."

The Seminoles scored two insurance runs in the seventh to put the game out of reach at 4-0. Gibbs Chapman walked and moved to second and Eddy Martinez-Esteve reached on an error. Cheesman's two-out, two-run double to left center plated Chapman and Martinez-Esteve. Michigan State starter Jeff Gerbe took the loss after allowing two runs on six hits in 5.2 innings. Gerbe walked one and struck out four.

Florida State will return to action against Jacksonville on Wednesday at Dick Howser Stadium. First pitch is set for 6:00 p.m. Shortstop Stephen Drew, who missed the Michigan State series with an injury, is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday.

FLORIDA STATE 19, JACKSONVILLE 3
03/17/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 16 Florida State (17-5) pounded out a season-high 18 hits and used a 10-run eighth inning to rout Jacksonville (11-11) by a final score of 19-3 Wednesday evening in front of 1,807 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. Eddy Martinez-Esteve racked up a career-high seven RBI while going 3-for-4 with two runs scored and a three-run blast over the 50-foot scoreboard in left field. The seven-RBI performance was the most since Marshall McDougall's had 16 at Maryland on May 9, 1999. The Seminoles' 19 runs were the most since FSU defeated Florida 19-6 on February 17, 2001.

Brian Schultz (3-0) picked up the win after working 1.1 innings of relief. Schultz had didn't allow a hit and had one walk with one strikeout. Seminole starter Brian Chambers worked four innings and allowed two runs on six hits with one walk and a career-high six strikeouts.

The Seminoles opened the game with four runs in the bottom of the first inning. Gibbs Chapman singled and stole second before scoring the first run of the game on Martinez-Esteve's RBI-single to left. Aaron Cheesman's doubled off the fence in right and Danny Wardell walked to load the bases with one out. Brant Peacher then plated Martinez-Esteve and Cheesman with a two-run single into right center. Wardell scored the fourth run of the inning on a throwing error by JU shortstop Pete Clifford.

After the Dolphins scored two runs in the third, Florida State added to its lead with three more runs in the fifth and sixth innings to make the score 7-2. Chapman walked and moved to third after a pair of walks by Jacksonville starter Shaun Kapples. Wardell drew a bases loaded walk to score Chapman in the fifth and Martinez-Esteve's two-run single through the left side plated Bryan Zech and Matt Sauls for the two runs in the sixth.

Martinez-Esteve's three-run blast to left, Dennis Anderson's two-run double and Danny Diaz' two-run single paved the way for FSU's 10-run eighth.

JU starter Shawn Kapples (0-1) took his first loss of the season after giving up five runs (four earned) on six hits in five innings of work. Kapples walked five and struck out two in the loss.

Six different Seminoles recorded multi-hit performances highlighted by Brant Peacher's 4-for-5 performance with four RBI and two runs scored. Peacher, who had career-highs in hits and RBIs in the game, also added a double and his first home run of the season. Bryan Zech (2-for-5), Chapman (2-for-3), Martinez-Esteve (3-for-4), Anderson (2-for-4) and Matt Sauls (2-for-5) each had two or more hits.

Florida State will open ACC action this weekend with a three-game series with Maryland. Game times are set for Friday and Saturday at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Friday's game will be televised live on Sunshine.

Ryne Malone had a season-high four RBI while Eddy Martinez-Esteve and Bryan Zech each had three apiece. Matt Sauls (3-for-4), Martinez-Esteve (4-for-5) and Zech (3-for-4) all matched career-highs in hits. Hunter Jones (2-1) had another strong outing and had the run support he needed to pick up his second win of the season. Jones worked seven innings and only allowed two runs on six hits with five strikeouts.

FSU's first six batters all scored with no outs as the Seminoles batted around the order for a 6-0 lead in the first. Zech singled up the middle and later scored on Gibbs Chapman's double into left center. Martinez-Esteve and Aaron Cheesman were both hit by pitch to load the bases before Derrick Smith's bunt single plated Chapman.

The Seminole lead grew to 8-0 with two more runs in the bottom of the third. Matt Sauls and Zech each had RBI-singles to score the two runs.

Mike Constantino's RBI single into right center scored Maryland's first run of the game in the fourth inning. Constantino's single plated Anthony Buffone who doubled into right center and moved to third on Kevin Hart's groundout to the shortstop.

Florida State added a run in the fifth on Zech's sacrifice fly to center that scored Danny Wardell. Wardell doubled to right center and advanced to third on Sauls' bunt single before scoring on Zech's sacrifice to make the score 9-1.

Maryland answered with a run in the sixth and four more in the eighth only to have the Seminoles score seven runs in the seventh and eighth innings for the final of 16-6. Martinez-Esteve's two-run double to right center highlighted the seventh while Dennis Anderson, Danny Diaz and Martinez-Esteve's RBI accounted for the three-run eighth.

Hunter Davis got banged up in the eighth inning as he allowed four runs on four hits in relief of starter Hunter Jones, while Matt DiBlasi came in to pitch a scoreless ninth with one strikeout.

Kevin Hart (1-4) took the loss for the Terrapins after giving up nine runs on nine hits in five innings of work. Hart struck out three and walked two.

FLORIDA STATE 10, MARYLAND 1
03/20/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 16 Florida State (19-5, 2-0 ACC) scored six runs in the fourth inning en route to a 10-1 defeat of Maryland (9-9, 0-2 ACC) Saturday night in front of 4,263 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. Ryne Malone belted a grand slam for the second straight game in the fourth inning on his way to a season-high five RBI performance. Eddie Cannon (6-1) picked up the win after allowing just one run on five hits in seven innings of work. Cannon did not walk a batter and struck out four while only throwing 82 pitches.

The Terrapins' only run came in the second inning as Jason Maxey hit his first home run of the season over the fence in right to give Maryland the early lead.

FSU tied the game at one apiece with a single run in the bottom of the second. Derrick Smith doubled to right center, advanced to third on Shane Robinson's single to the shortstop before scoring when Bryan Zech drew a bases loaded walk to score Smith.

After going ahead 2-1 with another run in the third, the Seminoles blew the game open with a six-run fourth inning. Robinson doubled up the middle and moved to third on Matt Sauls' sacrifice bunt. Zech was walked for the second straight at bat and went to third on Gibbs Chapman's RBI-single through the right side plated Robinson for the first run of the inning. Zech scored on Eddy Martinez-Esteve's single. With runners on first and second, Aaron Cheesman was hit by pitch to load the bases with one out. Ryne Malone then proceded to hit a grand slam, his second in as many games, to give Florida State a commanding 8-1 advantage.

The Seminoles scored single runs in the fifth and eighth innings for the final score of 10-1. Chapman had an RBI triple in the fifth that scored Sauls and Martinez-Esteve's RBI-single off the right field fence in the eighth plated Zech from second. Zech had singled and moved up a base on Brant Peacher's pinch hit single.

Champman (2-for-4), Martinez-Esteve (2-for-3) and Robinson (2-for-4) all had multi-hits for the Seminoles. Chapman and Martinez-Esteve both had two RBI while Malone had a season-high five RBI.

UM starter Chris Clem took the loss after allowing nine runs on eight hits in five innings of work. Clem walked four and struck out three.

Brian Schultz and Tyler Chambliss each pitched an inning of scoreless relief.

The Seminoles will look to complete the series sweep over the Terrapins on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium. Mark Sauls (1-1, 3.29 ERA) will be on the hill for Florida State.

FLORIDA STATE 13, MARYLAND 6
03/21/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 16 Florida State (20-5, 3-0 ACC) completed a three-game sweep of Maryland (9-10, 0-3 ACC) by a final score of 13-6 on Sunday afternoon in front of 3,037 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. After hitting a grand slam in both the Friday and Saturday games, Ryne Malone had another good day as he tallied four RBI with a three-run triple while going 2-for-4. Mark Sauls (2-1) earned the win after working five innings with six strikeouts and just one walk. Sauls allowed five runs (one earned) on six hits. The Seminoles extended their winning streak to nine games.

FSU took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. Bryan Zech walked, Eddy Martinez-Esteve doubled off the fence in right and Aaron Cheesman also walked to load the bases. Zech came home for the first run on a wild pitch from Maryland starter Sean Kane and Martinez-Esteve scored on Ryne Malone's grounder.

The Terrapins answered with four unearned runs on two hits in the second inning for a 4-2 lead. Matt Maropis had a three-run double and Anthony Buffone followed with an RBI-double.

The Seminoles regained the lead at 5-4 with three runs in the third. Martinez-Esteve belted the first pitch he saw in the home half of the third out of the park, his seventh home run of the season, to bring the Seminoles to within one at 4-3. Cheesman doubled and moved to third as Malone reached on a throwing error from Terrapin second baseman Maropis. Cheesman scored from third as he and Malone pulled off the double steal and Malone advanced to third on the throwing error by the catcher. Wardell's sacrifice fly to left plated Malone for the third run of the inning.

Elliot Singletary's RBI-double scored Truan Mehl, who had doubled to lead off the fourth, as Maryland tied the game for a second time at 5-5.

Florida State broke the game wide open with eight runs in the fifth inning. Matt Sauls and Zech each had RBI-singles while Martinez-Esteve was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded and Cheesman drew a walk with the bases loaded for two more runs. Malone's three-run triple to straight-away center pushed the lead to 13-5.

Maryland added an unearned run in the seventh for the final score of 13-6. Buffone doubled to left with one out, advanced to third on Kevin Hart's single before scoring with two outs as Brian Jarosinski reached on a fielding error.

Sean Kane (1-3) took the loss for the Terrapins after allowing 12 runs (four earned) on seven hits in 4.2 innings of work. Kane walked six and struck out one in the loss.

Rhett James, Brian Schultz, Kevin Lynch and Tyler Chambliss combined to work the final four innings in relief and allowed just one unearned run on two hits with two strikeouts.

On top of Malone's performance, Martinez-Esteve (2-for-4) added three runs and two RBI, while Matt Sauls (2-for-3) added an RBI and a run scored. In four games this week, Martinez-Esteve hit .688 with two home runs and 14 RBI. He is now hitting .388 on the season and leads the team with seven home runs and 33 RBI.

FSU will get its first ACC road test of the season next weekend at North Carolina, March 26-28. Game times are set for Friday at 6:00 p.m., Saturday at 2:00 p.m. and Sunday at 1:00 p.m.

NORTH CAROLINA 10, FLORIDA STATE 4
03/26/2004, CHAPEL HILL, NC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - No. 12 Florida State (20-6, 3-1 ACC) suffered its first conference loss of the season by a final score of 10-4 at North Carolina (19-5, 3-1 ACC) on Friday night. The Tar Heels used a seven-run second inning to down the Seminoles. Eddy Martinez-Esteve went 3-for-4 with a home run to highlight FSU's offense. Hunter Jones fell to 2-2 on the season after allowing seven runs on eight hits in 1.2 innings of work. Jones struck out two and didn't walk a batter. The loss snapped Florida State's nine game winning streak.

UNC broke the game open with seven runs on eight hits in the second inning. Marshall Hubbard singled to center and scored as Sammy Hewitt hit his fourth home run of the season. Ross Cook's two-run single with the bases loaded gave the Tar Heels the 4-0 lead and Chris Iannetta's three-run shot over the left field wall made the score 7-0.

The Tar Heel's lead grew to 10-0 with three runs in the fourth. Cook singled up the middle and advanced to second on a wild pitch from DiCarlo Thompson before scoring on Hubbards RBI-single through the left side. With one out and the bases loaded, Justin Webb beat out a double-play ball to plate Iannetta and Jay Cox's single to left scored Hubbard for the inning's three runs.

Eddy Martinez-Esteve's two-out solo home run in the eighth, his eighth of the season, finally put the Seminoles on the board by a score of 10-1.

The Seminoles added three more runs in the ninth for the final of 10-4. Shane Robinson reached on an error by third baseman Justin Webb with the bases loaded to score Brant Peacher who had singled to lead off the inning and moved to third after a pair of walks. Dennis Anderson's two-run single plated Louis Rojas and Brandon Manasa for the final two runs.

Daniel Bard (4-0) picked up the win for North Carolina after working six scoreless innings. Bard only allowed three hits and struck out five with three walks.

Florida State and North Carolina will continue their three-game ACC series on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. Seminole right-hander Eddie Cannon (6-1, 2.12 ERA) will face Tar Heel right-hander Garry Bakker (2-1, 3.07 ERA).

FLORIDA STATE 10, NORTH CAROLINA 6
03/27/2004, CHAPEL HILL, NC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - No. 12 Florida State (21-6, 4-1 ACC) used seven runs in the first three innings to hand No. 16 North Carolina (19-6, 3-2 ACC) just its second home loss of the season by a final of 10-6 on Saturday afternoon. The Tar Heels rallied late with five runs in the seventh, but a strong relief appearance from Rhett James sealed the win for the Seminoles. Eddie Cannon (7-1) earned the win after allowing four runs on eight hits in 6.1 innings of work. Cannon struck out three and walked just one. Danny Wardell homered twice while Eddy Martinez-Esteve and Ryne Malone also had home runs in the win.

"I am proud of how the young guys such as Ryne Malone, Shane Robinson and the hitting Eddy Martinez-Esteve and Danny Wardell showed today," said head coach Mike Martin. "It was very encouraging to see our guys bounce back today after being humiliated last night. Eddy (Martinez-Esteve) and (Danny) Wardell provide huge lifts for our ball club today. I can't say enough for the character this team showed today."

The Seminoles took their first lead of the series with one run in the top of the first. Martinez-Esteve hit his ninth home run of the season; a two-out shot to right that gave FSU a 1-0 lead.

FSU pushed its lead to 4-0 with three more runs in the second. Malone singled to right center and scored on Wardell's two-run home run to left. Matt Sauls and Bryan Zech both drew walks to put runners on first and second with one out. Sauls later scored from second for the innings' third run as Tar Heel catcher Chris Iannetta's throw to first sailed high and into right field on an attempt to turn a double-play.

Marshall Hubbard's solo home run to straight-away center cut the Seminole lead to 4-1 in the second inning.

Florida State continued its scoring with three more runs in the third. Martinez-Esteve and Aaron Cheesman both singled and Malone's RBI-single down the right line plated Martinez-Esteve from second and put Cheesman on third. With runners on the corners, Shane Robinson belted a two-run double into left center that scored both runners to make the score 7-1.

In the seventh inning, Malone continued his tear with a two-run blast over the wall in right in the seventh inning to extend the Seminoles lead to 9-1. Louis Rojas pinch-hit single put a runner on for Malone's home run, his fourth of the season.

North Carolina made things interesting with a five-run seventh inning. The Tar Heels used RBIs from Jay Cox, Hubbard and Bryan Steed that cut FSU's lead to 9-6. Iannetta and Cox scored the last two runs of the inning as Dennis Anderson misplayed a Sammy Hewitt grounder with the bases loaded.

Wardell smashed his second home run of the game in the top of the ninth to give FSU an insurance run for the final score of 10-6.

UNC starter Garry Bakker (2-2) took the loss after giving up seven runs (six earned) on eight in 2.2 innings. Bakker recorded two strikeouts with three walks.

James earned his second save of the season after shutting down Carolina in the final 2.1 innings. He only allowed one hit and struck out two in relief.

Malone and Martinez-Esteve both went 4-for-5 on the day. Malone had three runs and three RBI with a double and a home run while Martinez-Esteve also added a home run and a double with an RBI and two runs scored.

Florida State and North Carolina will conclude the three-game series on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Mark Sauls (2-1, 3.06 ERA) will take the mound for the Seminoles and face Tar Heel left-hander Andrew Miller (2-2, 2.33 ERA).

NORTH CAROLINA 12, FLORIDA STATE 6
03/28/2004, CHAPEL HILL, NC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - Right fielder Marshall Hubbard and designated hitter Matt Ellington each drove in three runs, and No. 16 North Carolina (20-6, 4-2 ACC) took advantage of a school-record 10 Florida State errors to defeat the No. 12 Seminoles (21-7, 4-2 ACC) by a score of 12-6 Sunday at Boshamer Stadium. With the win, the Tar Heels won just their third-ever series from FSU since it began ACC play in 1992.

Hubbard, who went 2-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored, and Ellington, who was 3-for-5 with three RBI, led the 11-hit attack for the Tar Heels. Catcher Chris Iannetta, who has hit safely in each of the last 15 games, was 3-for-4 with three runs scored.

In addition to the Tar Heel offensive output, the Seminoles aided the Carolina cause with the 10 errors, including four from second baseman Ryne Malone. The 10 miscues eclipsed the Seminole school record of nine, set against Valdosta State in 1988.

Carolina senior Michael Gross (3-0) earned the win after tossing a scoreless final 2.1 innings. He scattered four hits and also struck out four batters. FSU's Kevin Lynch (3-3) took the loss.

Carolina has now won five of its last six in Chapel Hill and seven of its last 10 overall against FSU. The Tar Heels swept the Seminoles in 2002 and also took the 1995 series in Tallahassee. UNC won 10-4 on Friday, while Florida State took Saturday's game 10-6.

Trailing 5-1 entering the bottom of the sixth, the Tar Heels sent 10 batters to the plate and scored five unearned runs courtesy of five Seminole errors in the frame. After the first run of the inning scored on an error by FSU third baseman Dennis Anderson, Ellington singled to right field to drive in the second run of the frame. Carolina tied the game when pinch hitter Chase Younts hit a sacrifice fly to left that scored Sammy Hewitt from third and two errors later Ellington crossed the plate to make the score 5-5. The Tar Heels took a 6-5 lead when pinch hitter Ross Cook, who walked, came home as second baseman Greg Mangum reached on a throwing error by Malone, the fifth and final miscue of the inning.

FSU came back to tie the score at six in the top of the seventh. Center fielder Shane Robinson, who walked to lead off the inning, scored as designated hitter Brant Preacher grounded into a bases-loaded double play.

The Seminoles' defensive struggles continued in the seventh, where Carolina scored twice to take an 8-6 lead. Iannetta doubled to start the inning and took third as Hewitt reached on Malone's fourth error of the day. Iannetta then scored when Ellington reached on an RBI bunt single. Second baseman Craig Corrado later drove in Hewitt on a run-scoring fielder's choice.

The Tar Heels added four in the eighth to put the game away. Third baseman Justin Webb led off the inning with a solo home run to left, and three batters later Hubbard doubled off the left field wall to push the lead to 11-6. Ellington singled to center to drive in the final run of the game.

The Seminoles jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first on Eddy Martinez-Esteve's two-run homer to left. The round-tripper scored shortstop Bryan Zech, who singled, and was his third of the series and 10th of the season.

Carolina scratched for one run in the bottom of the inning to trim the lead to 2-1. Left fielder Jay Cox doubled to right and moved to third on Iannetta's single through the left side. Cox then scored when Hubbard reached on a fielder's choice.

The Seminoles added three more runs via the long ball to claim a 5-1 lead. Malone hit solo shots in both the fourth and sixth innings, and Zech went deep in the fifth. With four homers Sunday, the Seminoles hit nine in the three-game set versus Carolina, which had allowed just 11 long balls entering the series.

Zech was 3-for-5 on the day, and three other Seminoles added two more hits. FSU starter Mark Sauls went 5.1 innings and allowed five runs (one earned) on six hits and one walk.

Carolina starter Andrew Miller allowed five runs on six hits and three walks in 5.1 innings. The freshman also stuckout six batters, including five in a row at one point. Four of the six hits allowed by Miller were home runs.

FLORIDA 7, FLORIDA STATE 6
03/31/2004, GAINESVILLE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

GAINESVILLE, FL - An 11th inning two run rally that was helped by three Florida State errors lifted the University of Florida baseball team (25-5) to a 7-6 victory over the Seminoles. UF led 5-4 entering the ninth but gave up a run forcing extra innings. The game was played in front of a McKethan Stadium record-setting crowd of 5,663.

Ryne Malone led off the Florida State 11th inning with a solo home run before the Gators responded with two runs of their own.

The Gators came back as Adam Davis led off the 11th with a single and advanced to second on a throwing error. Ben Harrison followed and tied the game with a single to ricochet off the third baseman's glove, which brought Davis home. Another fielding error put Austin Easley aboard and moved Harrison to third with the winning run. Stephen Barton stepped to the plate in his second clutch situation of the game and hit a ground ball in the hole at shortstop that the shortstop could not field and Harrison came in from third.

Florida State scored four in the first but a duo of Gator pitchers shutout the Seminoles over the next six innings before Florida State pushed a run across to tie the game in the ninth. Steven Porter would give up the four runs before Connor Falkenbach came on in relief.

Falkenbach came in and pitched like a starter to keep Florida in the game. Coming into the game down early in a pressure spot, the junior came through to get out of the first and quietly sat down Florida State over the next five innings. He would give up just three hits and no runs while striking out three over 5 1/3. Lee Roberson then stepped in and pitched two scoreless innings.

The Seminoles first began as Bryan Zech led off the game with a solo shot to left on the second pitch of the contest. After a single by Eddy Martinez-Esteve and an ensuing error, Aaron Cheesman's groundout would score Esteve from third. The Seminoles then hit their second long ball of the inning courtesy of Brant Peacher with a shot that hit the scoreboard in right. FSU tagged on one more run in the first when Matt Sauls singled through the left side to drive in Daniel Wardell who got on with a double to make it 4-0.

UF came charging back in the bottom of the sixth after being shut down the first five innings. Davis led off with an infield single and his legs made the second baseman put it in his pocket. After Harrison was tagged by a pitch, C.J. Smith drove in his team leading 39th RBI with a single to right to drive home Davis. The Gators then loaded the bases for Barton who came in to pinch-hit. Barton lifted the ball over the shortstop's head as the ball dropped in left which drove home two, bringing UF within a run with only one out.

The Gators took the lead two batters later with another clutch hit from freshman Brian Jeroloman. Tordi advanced the runners with a sacrifice bunt and Jeroloman hit a grounder back through the middle to give UF their first lead of the game.

Florida State starter Rhett James was equally up to the task the first five innings, but the Gators finally got to him in the sixth to force him out of the game. James got a no decision and pitched six innings and gave up five runs with two walks and career high eight strikeouts.

Darren O'Day came in the top of the ninth to close out the game. Matt Sauls would single and later come home on a Shane Robinson double which tied the game. O'Day (3-1) would finish the game after entering in the ninth and pitch the final three innings in earning the win on the mound.

Davis and Harrison each scored twice and had a pair of hits for Florida while Wardell and Zech had three base hits for the Florida State 14 hit attack.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 10 Florida State (21-9, 4-3 ACC) fell to No. 22 NC State (20-8, 4-3 ACC) 11-0 in front of 3,504 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Friday night. The Wolfpack held the Seminoles to just three hits and scored eight runs over the final four innings. Eddie Cannon (7-2) took the loss after allowing four runs (one earned) in six innings of work. Cannon struck out six and walked two. The shutout was the first against FSU since falling 5-0 to Georgia Tech on April 22, 2000, a span of 263 games.

The Wolfpack scored all they would need with one run in the top of the third. NC State first baseman reached on an error and moved to second on a passed ball before Jason St. Julian's RBI-single to left plated Hicks for the early lead.

NC State pushed its lead to 3-0 with a two unearned runs in the fourth. Jonathan Diaz and Ryan Johnson recorded back-to-back singles and moved up a base on Matt Camp's groundout to second. With runners on second and third, Lee Mezistrano's grounder bounced off Danny Wardell's glove and into right field to score the two runners.

FSU's first hit didn't come until the fifth inning as Shane Robinson ripped a single into center field.

After scoring one run in the sixth, NCSU posted three runs in both the seventh and eighth innings. Eric Taylor had an RBI-single to score St. Julian, and Diaz's two-run double plated Tim Holt and Dustin Knight in the seventh. Knight's three-run homer to center in the eighth put the Wolfpack up 10-0. NC State added a single run in the top of the ninth for the final of 11-0.

Michael Rogers (5-1) picked up the win as he struck out nine and walked just one in eight innings. Rogers threw 101 pitches and allowed all three Seminole hits.

Florida State and NC State will continue their three-game ACC series on Saturday at 7:00 p.m. Seminole starter Hunter Jones (2-2, 4.12 ERA) will face Wolfpack right-hander Vern Sterry (4-1, 1.98 ERA).

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Matt Sauls roped an RBI-single into right center to score Brandon Manasa in the bottom of the 11th inning to lift No. 10 Florida State (22-9, 5-3 ACC) 7-6 over No. 22 NC State (20-9, 4-4 ACC) in front of 3,825 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Saturday night. The Seminoles and Wolfpack combined for 25 hits while Shane Robinson went 3-for-6 with a double and a triple in the win. Freshman right-hander Tyler Chambliss (1-1) picked up his first-career win after shutting down NC State over the final three innings. Chambliss held the Wolfpack scoreless and allowed just one hit while striking out a season-high five with one walk. FSU's pitching staff totaled 15 strikeouts on the night.

The Seminoles got on the board first with one run in the bottom of the second inning. Ryne Malone drew a lead off and moved to third as Shane Robinson ripped a double into left field. With runners on second and third, Danny Wardell's sacrifice fly to center plated Malone for the early 1-0 lead.

NC State answered with a run in the third to tie the game at one apiece. Jonathan Diaz doubled down the right line and advance to third on a passed ball before scoring on Matt Camp's sacrifice bunt to tie the game.

The Wolfpack took the lead at 3-1 with a pair of runs in the fourth and fifth innings. Lee Mezistrano scored the go ahead run as Ryan Johnson was walked with the bases loaded to give the Wolfpack a 2-1 lead in the fourth inning. NCSU added a run in the fifth as Mezistrano's RBI-single to right plated Dustin Knight who was hit by pitch and moved to second on a failed double steal attempt.

FSU tied the game at 3-3 with two runs in the sixth. Aaron Cheesman doubled to right-center and scored on an errant throw to first from second baseman Matt Camp on Malone's single. Malone scored the tying run on Robinson's RBI-single to center.

NCSU scored its final three runs in the seventh to regain the lead at 6-3. Knight's RBI-single to left and Jake Muyco's two-run double to center field accounted for the Wolfpack's three runs.

The Seminoles cut the lead to 6-4 in the home half of the seventh inning on Bryan Zech's RBI-single to center. Wardell started things off with an infield single to third and advanced to third as Wolfpack pitcher McLauren throw to second rolled into center field. Zech's single to center brought home Wardell for FSU's only run in the seventh.

In the bottom of the eighth, Derrick Smith's two-run homer over the fence in right evened the score for the third time of the game, this time at 6-6.

With two outs and no one on in the 11th inning, Smith and Wardell both drew walks to put runners on first and second. Brandon Manasa then came into the game as a pinch runner for Smith at second to see Sauls belt a 2-2 pitch into right center to plate Manasa for the winning run. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Seminoles.

Reliever Daniel Caldwell (1-1) took the loss for the Wolfpack after allowing one run on two hits in 1.2 innings of work. Caldwell walked three and had one strikeout in the loss.

Zech (3-for-6), Cheesman (2-for-5), Robinson (3-for-6) and Sauls (2-for-6) all had multi-hit games for FSU.

Florida State and NC State will conclude their three-game ACC series on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Seminole right-hander Mark Sauls (2-1, 2.87 ERA) will face Wolfpack right-hander Derrick McKee (1-0, 3.86 ERA).

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 10 Florida State (23-9, 6-3 ACC) defeated No. 22 NC State (20-10, 4-5 ACC) by a final score of 10-3 in front of 2,664 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Seminoles scored six runs in the third and four more in the seventh to put away the Wolfpack to win the three-game series 2-1. Derrick Smith's three-run homer in the third keyed the six-run third inning. Sophomore right-hander Mark Sauls (3-1) pitched a career-long seven innings while striking out six with two walks. Sauls allowed three runs on 10 hits in the win.

The Wolfpack scored two runs in the top of the second for the early lead. Joey Devine, Jonathan Diaz and Caleb Mangum recorded three straight hits to load the bases with one out. Ryan Johnson's sacrifice fly to center plated Devine from third and Lee Mezistrano's infield single with the bases loaded scored Diaz to put NC State up 2-0.

FSU broke the game open with six runs in the third. With one out, Matt Sauls and Stephen Drew were both walked to put runners on first and second. Eddy Martinez-Esteve's single scored Sauls and Aaron Cheesman's sacrifice bunt plated Drew to tie the game at two. Ryne Malone's RBI-single to center drove in Martinez-Esteve for the go-ahead run. After Shane Robinson reached on a throwing error from Diaz, Smith blasted a three-run homer over the fence in right, his fifth of the season for the 6-2 lead.

David Hicks' solo home run in the seventh cut the Seminole lead to 6-3.

The Seminoles put the game out of reach with four more runs in the bottom of the seventh to make it 10-3. Cheesman and Malone both drew walks to start the inning and moved up a base on Shane Robinson's sacrifice bunt. Brant Peacher's RBI-single scored Cheesman and Malone came home on a Mezistrano fielding error which allowed Peacher to move to second. Sauls' two-out triple to left center plated Peacher and Sauls later scored the final run of the game when Bryan Zech doubled down the left line.

FLORIDA STATE 15, JACKSONVILLE 4
04/07/2004, JACKSONVILLE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

JACKSONVILLE, FL - Jacksonville led No. 13 Florida State by a run in the sixth inning thanks to a pair of home runs and three RBIs by sophomore Donald Brickle (Jacksonville/Arlington Country Day), but the Seminoles scored 13 runs in the final four innings to take a 15-4 victory Wednesday night at Alexander Brest Field. JU held a 3-2 lead in the top of the sixth, but a five-run inning by the Seminoles turned the tide in Florida State's favor.

Dolphin sophomore starter Kyle DeVries (Holland, Mich.) (2-5) recorded the loss, pitching 5.1 innings while allowing six runs, one of them earned, and striking out four. Seminole reliever Frank Radziwon (1-0) picked up his first win of the season, throwing 1.2 innings and fanning four.

Brickle hit a two-run homer in his first at-bat of the game to put the Dolphins up, 2-1 in the first and added his second blast of the night in the third to give JU a 3-1 lead. Florida State added another run on a bases-loaded error in the fifth to close the gap, 3-2, before the fateful sixth.

Freshman Daniel Murphy (Jacksonville/Englewood) went 3-for-4 with a run, while senior Orlando Diaz (Downers Grove, Ill.) had a pair of hits and one RBI. Senior Larry Best-Berfet (Newark, N.J.) had a hit and a run scored to go along with his team-leading 25th stolen base of the season.

FLORIDA STATE 6, MIAMI 5
04/09/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 13 Florida State (25-9, 6-3 ACC) got two home runs from Stephen Drew to defeat No. 5 Miami (24-7) by a final score of 6-5 in front of 6,013 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Friday night. The crowd was the seventh-largest in Dick Howser Stadium history. After UM scored two runs in the top of the seventh to take a 5-3 lead, Drew launched a three-run homer to give the Seminoles a 6-5 lead they would not relinquish.

Brian Schultz (4-0) picked up the win after pitching the final out of the seventh inning. Senior right-hander Rhett James earned his third save of the season after pitching the final two innings without giving up a run or a hit.

Miami opened the scoring on Ryan Braun's two-out solo home run in the top of the first inning to put the Hurricanes up by a score of 1-0.

The Seminoles got on the board and took their first lead of the game with two runs in the third inning. Matt Sauls drew a walk to lead off the inning and moved to second on Bryan Zech's sacrifice bunt. Stephen Drew then belted his fifth home run of the season over the fence in right to give Florida State a 2-1 lead.

Florida State had the bases loaded with no outs in the fourth inning and couldn't plate a run, but did increase the lead to 3-1 when Zech took the first pitch of the fifth inning over the left field wall - his fifth home run of the season.

Braun hit his second home run of the game in the sixth, a two-run shot to left, to tie the game at 3-3. Brendan Katin led off the inning with a single through the left side to put a runner on for Braun's homer.

The Hurricanes regained the lead with two more runs in the seventh. Brian Barton hit a solo home run to lead off the inning and Joey Hooft's RBI-single through the left side scored Adam Ricks to give UM a 5-3 advantage. Ricks singled up the middle and moved to third on Erik San Pedro's double down the right line before scoring.

FSU quickly answered with three runs in the home half of the seventh to take the lead at 6-5. Matt Sauls singled to center and advanced to second when Zech drew a walk. Drew then crushed his second home run of the game to right center to record the game-winning hit. Drew's two home runs marked his fifth-career multi-home run game of his career and he also tied a career-high with five RBIs.

J.D. Cockroft (2-3) suffered his third loss of the season after giving up four runs on three hits in 3.1 innings of work. Cockroft struck out two and walked one.

Florida State and Miami will continue the three-game series at Dick Howser Stadium on Saturday at 7:00 p.m. Seminole right-hander Mark Sauls (3-1, 3.02 ERA) will face Hurricane right-hander Cesar Carrillo (4-0, 3.06 ERA).

MIAMI 17, FLORIDA STATE 11
04/10/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 13 Florida State (25-9, 6-3 ACC) scored four runs in the first inning, but No. 5 Miami (24-7) rallied to win by a final score of 17-11 in front of 6,387 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Saturday night. The crowd was the second-largest in Dick Howser Stadium history. Seminole shortstop Stephen Drew had his second straight two-homer game, going 2-for-5 with four RBIs.

Seminole starter Mark Sauls (3-2) took the loss after giving up six runs on six hits in 3.2 innings of work. Sauls struck out three and walked four.

The Seminoles grabbed a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning behind back-to-back home runs from Stephen Drew and Eddy Martinez-Esteve. After Gibbs Chapman popped up to the shortstop, Aaron Cheesman singled up the middle and advanced to third on Ryne Malone's double off the right field wall. Cheesman scored on Shane Robinson's RBI-single to third and Malone came home on an errant throw to first by Gaby Sanchez. The back-to-back home runs were the first for FSU since Tony McQuade and Tony Richie belted consecutive home runs against South Alabama in the 2003 Tallahassee Regional.

Miami cut Florida State's lead to one at 4-3 with three runs in the third inning. Erick San Pedro singled down the right line and Paco Figueroa singled to center before Ryan Braun's single up the middle plated both San Pedro and Figueroa for the Hurricanes first two runs of the game. Braun stole second and later scored on Jim Burt's single to left.

Figueroa's three-run double off the fence in right with the bases loaded gave UM a 6-4 lead in the fourth and the Hurricanes never looked back. With two outs, Sanchez doubled down the right line, San Pedro walked and Brendan Katin was hit by pitch to load the bases for Figueroa's bases clearing double.

Cesar Carrillo (5-0) picked up the win for Miami in seven innings of work. Carrillo allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits with five strikeouts and two walks. All four runs came on five hits in the first inning.

The Hurricanes tallied 11 more runs for their 17-run total. The 17 runs were the most given up by Florida State since 1982 when the Seminoles fell to Georgia 21-5.

FSU scored seven runs in the final two innings including a five-run ninth. Derrick Smith's RBI-double and Louis Rojas' drew a bases loaded walk, while Drew's three-run blast with two outs in the ninth completed the scoring.

Drew (2-for-5), Martinez-Esteve (2-for-3), Robinson (2-for-4) and Smith (2-for-4) paced the Seminole offense.

Florida State and Miami will conclude the three-game series at Dick Howser Stadium on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. The game will be carried live on Sunshine. Seminole left-hander Hunter Jones (2-2, 4.21 ERA) will face Hurricane left-hander Brandon Camardese (3-0, 3.67 ERA).

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 13 Florida State (25-11, 6-3 ACC) was shutout by No. 5 Miami (26-7) 4-0 in front of 2,762 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The shutout marked the first time the Hurricanes have shutout FSU in Tallahassee, a span of 120 meetings. UM starter Brandon Camardese and George Huguet combined for a two-hit performance while Shane Robinson went 2-for-4 for the Seminoles only two hits of the day.

UM got all they would need with two runs in the top of the fourth inning. Richard Giannotti had a pinch hit single to right and moved to third when Roger Tomas' single to right was misplayed by Eddy Martinez-Esteve. Paco Figueroa's sacrifice fly plated Giannotti and Tomas scored from first on Jon Jay's double down the right line for the early 2-0 lead.

Miami added two more runs in the eighth inning to make the final score of 4-0. Adam Ricks drew a walk to lead off the inning and moved up a base on Erick San Pedro's sacrifice bunt. Giannotti's RBI-single to left plated Ricks from second while San Pedro moved up a base. With two outs, Figueroa's RBI-single to right scored San Pedro for the final run of the game.

Rhett James (3-1) took the loss for the Seminoles after pitching a career-long 6.1 innings of relief. James allowed four runs on six hits with three walks and three strikeouts.

Tyler Chambliss and Brian Schultz combined to keep the Hurricanes off the board over the final two innings.

Robinson (2-for-4) had the only two hits of the day for the FSU offense.

Camardese (4-0) earned the win after working a strong 6.2 innings only allowing one hit with three strikeouts and four walks. Reliever George Huguet pitched the final 2.1 innings of scoreless relief to record his eighth save of the season.

Florida State and Miami will continue the six-game series with three games at Mark Light Field in Miami, FL next weekend. Game times are set for Friday and Saturday at 7:00 p.m and Sunday at 1:00 p.m. All three games will be carried live on Sunshine.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CORAL GABLES, FL - No. 14 Florida State (25-12, 6-3 ACC) was shut out by No. 4 Miami (27-7) for the second straight game by a final score of 10-0 as 4,621 fans looked on at Mark Light Field Friday night. Leading 1-0 after four innings of play, UM took control with eight runs in the fifth inning en route to the 10-0 victory. Hurricane starter J.D. Cockroft (3-3) earned the win after pitching 7.0 scoreless innings with eight strikeouts and five walks. Eddie Cannon (7-3) suffered the loss after allowing eight runs (seven earned) on nine hits with two strikeouts in 4.1 innings of work.

"The University of Miami did an outstanding job tonight," said head coach Mike Martin. "They did it without two starters and obviously dominated us. We didn't give them anything, we just got whipped."

The Hurricanes scored first with a run in the bottom of the fourth. Jon Jay recorded Miami's first hit of the game to left center and advanced to third after a sacrifice bunt from Adam Ricks and a groundout by Brian Barton. Jim Burt's RBI-single to right plated Jay for the early 1-0 lead.

UM broke the game open with an eight-run fifth inning to make the score 9-0. Richard Giannotti led off the fifth with a homer to right to start the scoring. Ricks, Gaby Sanchez, Brendan Katin and Giannotti each had RBI-singles. Brian Barton plated another run with a grounder to third and Burt knocked in a pair with a double down the left field line.

Miami added another run in the sixth for the final score of 10-0. Barton's RBI-groundout scored Jay from third for the Hurricanes' final run of the game.

Friday night's 10-0 defeat coupled with last Sunday's 4-0 UM victory in Tallahassee marked just the third set of back-to-back shutouts in FSU history. The last time the Seminoles were held scoreless in consecutive games was at Clemson in 1992, losing 12-0 on March 28 and 14-0 in March 29.

Florida State and Miami will continue the three-game series on Saturday at Mark Light Field. Game time is set for 7:00 p.m. and will be televised by Sunshine Network. Seminole right-hander Mark Sauls (3-2, 3.91 ERA) will face Hurricane right-hander Cesar Carrillo (5-0, 3.19 ERA).

CORAL GABLES, FL - No. 14 Florida State (26-13, 6-3 ACC) defeated No. 4 Miami (28-8) by a final score of 10-3 to avoid a sweep as 3,382 looked on at Mark Light Field on Sunday afternoon. Rhett James (4-1) pitched a career-long 6.2 innings with seven strikeouts and two walks. James, who was making his first start in the weekend rotation, allowed three runs on seven hits. Junior catcher Aaron Cheesman led the Seminoles offensively, going 3-for-4 with three RBI including a two-run home run in the first inning. Kevin Lynch and Tyler Chambliss combined to shut out the Hurricanes over the final 2.1 innings allowing just one hit.

"It was a big win for us," said head coach Mike Martin. "I was very proud of this group of Seminoles. They played very well and you have to beat a team like Miami. They are the best team we've played so far this season."

Cheesman put the Seminoles up early with a two-run homer to left in the first inning. Stephen Drew was aboard after drawing a walk for Cheesman's second home run of the season.

FSU added another run in the second inning to go up 3-0 when Matt Sauls belted his first homer of the year, a solo shot to left.

The Hurricanes got two runs back in the bottom half of the second. Jim Burt hit a solo home run to left and Roger Tomas recorded an RBI-double to the gap in left center.

In the top of the third, Florida State pushed the lead to 5-2. Shane Robinson led off with a single and came around to score on Drew's double down the right field line. Drew later scored on Cheesman's single up the middle.

Florida State's lead grew to 8-2 with three runs in the top of the sixth. Sauls drew a leadoff walk and stole second before scoring when Brandon Manasa's grounder went through the legs of first baseman Jim Burt. Manasa moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Dennis Anderson while Shane Robinson was hit by pitch and Cheesman was walked to load the bases. Eddy Martinez-Esteve's sacrifice fly to center scored Manasa and with the bases loaded again, Gibbs Chapman was hit by a pitch to bring home Robinson.

FSU and UM each scored a run in the seventh to make it 9-3. Robinson knocked in a run with a double in the top half of the inning and Miami's Brian Barton singled home Adam Ricks in the bottom half.

The Seminoles final run came in the top of the ninth as Drew was walked with two outs and the bases loaded to plate Bryan Zech to make final score 10-3.

GEORGIA TECH 12, FLORIDA STATE 2
04/24/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 12 Florida State (27-15, 6-5 ACC) dropped its second straight contest to Georgia Tech (24-17, 6-5 ACC) by a final score of 12-2 in front of 5,276 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Saturday night. Mark Sauls (3-4) took the loss after allowing nine runs on seven hits in 3.1 innings. Sauls struck out two and walked four. Ryne Malone (2-for-4) was the only spark for a Seminole offense that totaled six hits on the night. With the loss, FSU will lose its first home ACC series since 1995 when North Carolina came into Tallahassee and defeated the Seminoles 2-3, 13-1, 3-5.

The Yellow Jackets opened up with four runs on two hits in the top of the first inning. Tyler Greene had an RBI-single and Brandon Boggs added a two-run single up the middle to give Georgia Tech all the scoring they would need. Clifton Remole's sacrifice fly to center plated Micah Owings who drew a walk earlier in the inning to make the score 4-0.

A pair of back-to-back doubles from Remole and Mike Nickeas increased Georgia Tech's lead to 5-0 in the fourth. Andy Hawrinck followed with a walk and both runners moved up a base on Mike Trapani's sacrifice bunt. Eric Patterson and Greene then both recorded singles to clear the bases before Steven Blackwood's two-run home run capped off a six-run fourth inning for GT.

FSU scored a pair of runs in the sixth and seventh innings that made the score 10-2. Drew tripled and scored on a wild pitch from Tech starter Andrew Kown in the sixth, while Ryne Malone scored the second run as Shane Robinson grounded into a double play with the bases loaded in the seventh. Malone singled to start the inning, advanced to second when Matt Sauls drew a walk and both runners moved up on a passed ball. Derrick Smith was also walked which loaded the bases for Florida State.

Drew's triple moved him into a tie with Mickey Lopez for second on Florida State's career triple list with No. 14. He passes brother J.D. Drew who had 13 triples in his career at FSU.

Georgia Tech scored two more runs in the eighth which made the final score of 12-2.

Andrew Kown (6-1) earned the win for the Yellow Jackets as he only allowed one run on three hits in six innings. Kown struck out six and walked four.

Matt DiBlasi tied a career-long outing while working 3.0 innings of relief with a career-high four strikeouts. DiBlasi gave up two unearned runs on four hits with one walk.

Florida State and Georgia Tech will conclude the three-game ACC series on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium. Rhett James (4-1, 3.29) will take the hill for the Seminoles. There will be a player autograph session on the field following the conclusion of the game.

GEORGIA TECH 7, FLORIDA STATE 6
04/25/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 12 Florida State (27-16, 6-6 ACC) couldn't avoid the sweep after losing to Georgia Tech (25-17, 7-5 ACC) by a final score of 7-6 in front of 2,607 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Seminoles put together a strong rally with four runs in the eighth inning behind Gibbs Chapman's three-run homer, but fell short after stranding a runner on second in the bottom of the ninth. Rhett James (4-2) lost for just the second time this season while allowing five runs (four earned) on four hits in 3.2 innings of work. James struck out two and tied a career-high with four walks. The sweep marks the first time FSU has been swept at home in an ACC series since joining the conference in 1992.

Georgia Tech scored first with a run in the top of the first inning. Eric Patterson drew a lead off walk, moved to second on a failed pickoff attempt, advanced to third on a groundout by Tyler Greene and scored on a sacrifice fly from Steven Blackwood.

FSU answered with a run in the home half of the first to tie the game at one apiece. Stephen Drew was walked and advanced to third when Eddy Martinez-Esteve's grounder was misplayed by Patterson. With runners on the corners and two outs, Drew and Martinez-Esteve successfully executed the double steal for the Seminoles first run of the game.

The Yellow Jackets regained the lead with four runs in the fourth to go ahead 5-1. Micah Owings' put GT up 3-1 with his 13th home run of the season, a two-run homer to right. With the bases loaded, Whit Robbins' sacrifice fly to right plated Boggs from third and moved Clifton Remole to third. Remole would score the final run of the inning on Mike Trapani's RBI-single to center.

The Seminoles cut the lead to 5-2 in the bottom of the sixth on Bryan Zech's RBI-single. Drew walked, moved to second on Martinez-Esteve's single and advanced to third as Chapman reached on a fielder's choice. Zech's single up the middle then scored Drew from third.

After Georgia Tech pushed its lead to five at 7-2, FSU climbed to within one with four runs on four hits in the eighth. Drew was hit by pitch and moved to second as Martinez-Esteve's single chopped high over the head of third baseman Mike Trapani. Chapman started the late rally as he crushed his third home run of the season, a three-run shot over the fence in right center, to bring the Seminoles to within two at 7-5. Aaron Cheesman singled to center with one out and advanced to third on a Ryne Malone single to right. Brant Peacher's pinch hit sacrifice fly plated Cheesman from third in what proved to be the final score of 7-6.

Freshman Brian Schultz held the Yellow Jackets scoreless in the ninth inning after coming in with runners on the corners and no outs. Schultz struckout Blackwood, walked Owings to load the bases and struckout Boggs before forcing Remole into a fielder's choice groundout to end the inning.

The game was halted for 26 minutes in the top of the ninth as there was a substitution rule discrepancy.

Brian Burks (3-5) earned the win for Tech as he allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits in 7.0 innings pitched. Burks walked three and struck out six.

Martinez-Esteve (2-for-5), Cheesman (2-for-4) and Malone (2-for-4) led the Seminoles offensively, while Chapman had three RBI on his home run in the eighth inning.

Florida State will travel to Clemson next weekend with game times set for Saturday at 7:00, Sunday at 2:00 p.m. and Monday at 4:00 p.m. at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

FLORIDA STATE 11, CLEMSON 6
05/01/2004, CLEMSON, SC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CLEMSON, SC - No. 24 Florida State (28-16, 7-6 ACC) used a six-run fourth inning and a strong pitching performance from senior Rhett James (5-2) to defeat No. 11 Clemson (27-15, 11-5 ACC) by a final score of 11-6 in front of 5,079 fans at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Friday night. The Seminole victory snapped a 14-game home winning streak for the Tigers as FSU has now won 12 of the last 13 meetings with Clemson. James worked a career-long 8.2 innings of relief of starter Hunter Jones who left with a sore elbow in the first inning.

Each of the first three batters reached base in the first inning for the Seminoles as FSU took an early 1-0 lead. Bryan Zech singled through the left side and scored from first when Stephen Drew ripped an RBI-double into right center to score Florida State's first run of the game.

The Tigers started the home half of the first with four straight hits including Brad McCann's RBI-single that tied the game at one apiece. With runners on first and second, Lou Santagelo singled to third and advanced on a throwing error which scored Kris Harvey and advanced McCann to third. John Ingram's RBI-groundout plated McCann from third to give Clemson a 3-1 lead.

Hunter Jones left in the first inning with an awkward feeling in his elbow after throwing 17 pitches.

Clemson pushed its lead to 6-1 with three more runs in the third. Russell Triplett's sacrifice fly to left accounted for the Tigers' only RBI of the inning. McCann drew a lead off walk and moved to second on Santangelo's single to left. McCann would score from second and Santangelo went to third when Rhett James fielded Travis Storrer's bunt single and threw it over the head of first baseman Danny Wardell. Triplett's sacrifice fly to left scored Santangelo and Storrer later scored on a passed ball.

FSU exploded to take a 7-6 lead with a six-run fourth inning. Gibb Chapman led things off with a single up the middle and advanced to third on Shane Robinson's single into right center. Wardell followed with a walk to load the bases and Matt Sauls was also walked with the bases juiced to bring home Chapman. With the bases still full, Ryne Malone's two-run pinch hit single to center plated Robinson and Wardell to make it 6-4. Zech's RBI-single through the right side scored Sauls from second and Zech later stole second on Drew's strikeout. Aaron Cheesman capped off the six-run inning with a two-run double into left center to put the Seminoles ahead by one.

Florida State's increased its lead to 9-6 with two runs in the sixth. Zech and Drew were both walked and Eddy Martinez-Esteve plated Zech from second with an RBI-single through the left side which also moved Drew to third. FSU's lead went to three on Chapman's single scored Drew from third.

Martinez-Esteve's two-run double with two outs in the seventh pushed the Seminole lead to 11-6 in what proved to be the final score.

Zech (3-for-5) led FSU offensively while Drew (2-for-3), Martinez-Esteve (2-for-3) and Chapman (2-for-5) also recorded multi-hit performances. Martinez-Esteve added three RBI and Cheesman had two in the win.

Florida State and Clemson will continue the three-game ACC series on Sunday at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Game time is set for 2:00 p.m. and will be carried on the Sunshine Network. Seminole left-hander Brian Schultz (4-0, 2.73 ERA) will face Tiger left-hander Robert Rohrbaugh (3-2, 2.84 ERA).

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CLEMSON, SC - No. 24 Florida State (29-16, 8-6 ACC) scored seven runs in the final four innings to defeat No. 11 Clemson (27-16, 11-6 ACC) by a final score of 10-1 in front of 2,900 fans at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Sunday afternoon. In his first-career start, freshman Brian Schultz (5-0) pitched brilliantly and used a strong Seminole defense to put the clamps on the Tiger offense. Schultz worked a season-long 6.1 innings and allowed just one run on five hits with two strikeouts and one walk. The Tigers only had seven base runners on the afternoon. FSU has now won 13 of the last 14 meetings against CU including five straight in Clemson, S.C.

The Tigers scored their only run in the bottom of the second inning. Lou Santangelo led off the inning with a single to right center and stole second before scoring on Russell Triplett's RBI-single up the middle for the 1-0 lead.

FSU tied the game at one apiece in the top of the third. With one out, Matt Sauls and Dennis Anderson both singled through the left side to put runners on first and second. Sauls then scored on a throwing error by second baseman Travis Storrer as Clemson failed to turn the 6-4-3 double play.

In the fourth inning, Eddy Martinez-Esteve and Aaron Cheesman each recorded singles to start the inning and moved up a base on Gibbs Chapman's sacrifice bunt. Shane Robinson's two-run double into the left center gap plated both runners to give Florida State a two run lead at 3-1.

The Seminoles added a pair of runs in the sixth and seventh innings to make the score 5-1. Martinez-Esteve doubled down the left line, advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Cheesman and scored on Chapman's RBI-single up the middle. In the seventh, Ryne Malone recorded a pinch hit single and Sauls was walked to put runners on. Anderson's sacrifice bunt moved the runners up a base before Bryan Zech's sacrifice fly to right plated Malone from third.

After Martinez-Esteve led of the eighth with a single into left center, Cheesman hit his third home run of the season, a two-run shot over the fence in left to push FSU's lead to 7-1.

FSU capped off its scoring on Drew's 11th home run of the season, a three-run blast to right which made the final score of 10-1.

Martinez-Esteve (3-for-5) and Aaron Cheesman led the Seminoles offensively. Martinez-Esteve scored three runs while Drew recorded a team-high three RBI.

Robert Rohrbaugh (3-3) took the loss for Clemson after allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits in 5.1 innings of work. Rohrbaugh struck out one and did not walk a batter.

Florida State and Clemson will conclude the three-game ACC series on Sunday at 4:00 p.m. at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Seminole right-hander Eddie Cannon (7-4, 3.87 ERA) will take the mound for the Seminoles.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CLEMSON, SC - No. 24 Florida State (29-17, 8-7 ACC) couldn't overcome an early scoring flurry from No. 11 Clemson (28-16, 12-6 ACC) as it fell by a final score of 18-9 in front of 3,184 fans at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Monday afternoon. The Tigers scored 16 runs in the first three innings to put the Seminoles down early. FSU scored seven runs in the fourth, but it wasn't enough to counter the CU offense. Starter Eddie Cannon (7-5) took the loss after allowing seven runs (three earned) on five hits in 1.1 innings of work. Cannon struck out two and walked one. Florida State used seven different pitchers in the loss.

Brad McCann's two-run home run over the fence in left, his 11th of the season, put the Tigers up 2-0 in the bottom half of the first inning. The home run marked the first extra base hit of the series for Clemson.

The Seminoles answered with a run in the second inning. Gibbs Chapman led off the inning with a double and later scored as Ryne Malone's RBI-double sailed over the head of right fielder Kris Harvey to make the score 2-1.

Clemson broke the game open with 11 runs in the second which made the score 13-1. Five runs came with two outs. Russell Triplett, Tony Sipp and Travis Storrer all had RBI singles while John Ingram and Andy D'Alessio each had two RBI. Tyler Colvin led the Tigers with three-RBI on two doubles for Clemson. Ingram's two-run homer to center highlighted the scoring.

CU added three more runs in the third on Lou Santangelo's three-run blast down the left field line for a 16-1 lead.

FSU used four straight hits to start the fourth to cut the Clemson lead to 16-5. Aaron Cheesman doubled and scored on Ryne Malone's RBI-single. Shane Robinson followed with an RBI-single to score Malone. Robinson then stole second and advanced to third on a single by Matt Sauls. Bryan Zech's two-run double into right center cleared the bases for the fourth and fifth runs of the inning. After Eddy Martinez-Esteve and Chapman both drew walks to load the bases, Zech came home from third on a wild pitch from Tiger reliever Jeff Hahn. With runners still on second and third, Cheesman ripped a two-run double down the left line to cut Clemson's lead in half at 16-8.

Following a two-run fifth inning for Clemson, the Seminoles scored one run in the seventh for the final score of 18-9. Danny Diaz singled to left center while Malone and Robinson were both walked to load the bases with no outs. Sauls' sacrifice fly to right plated Diaz for the final run of the game.

Collin Mahoney (1-2) earned the win for the Tigers in relief effort. Mahoney only allowed one hit over the seventh and eighth innings with two strikeouts and one walk.

Zech (2-for-5), Cheesman (2-for-3) and Malone (2-for-4) led FSU offensively.

Florida State returns to action next weekend at Virginia for a three-game ACC series in Charlottesville, VA. Game times are set for Friday and Saturday at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday's game starting at 1:00 p.m.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Florida State senior right-hander Rhett James (6-2), making his first career Friday night start, recorded his first career complete game shutout as he led No. 24 Florida State (30-17, 9-7 ACC) to an 8-0 victory at No. 7 Virginia (36-10, 12-5 ACC) on Friday in front of a record crowd of 2,430 at Davenport Field. James scattered four singles on the evening and struck out six while walking two. The complete game shutout was the first for a Seminole pitcher since Matt Lynch accomplished the feat against Jacksonville on May 30, 2003.

The Seminoles got on the board first with two runs in the opening frame. Bryan Zech and Stephen Drew led off with back-to-back singles before Eddy Martinez-Esteve knocked in a run with a double to left. Aaron Cheesman then plated Drew from third with a sacrifice fly to center.

Florida State tacked on three more in the top of the third to extend the lead. With one out, Martinez-Esteve and Cheesman were hit by a pitch to put runners on first and second. Gibbs Chapman scored Martinez-Esteve with a single up the middle and Cheesman advanced to third. Chapman then took second and Cheesman scored on a delayed double steal. Chapman scored from second on a single by Ryne Malone to make it 5-0.

In the top of the fifth, the Seminoles put up three more runs thanks to four doubles to take an 8-0 advantage. Martinez-Esteve doubled and scored on Chapman's double. Shane Robinson then doubled down the left field line and Chapman advanced to third. Malone's double to right to plate Chapman and Robinson later scored on a sacrifice fly from Matt Sauls.

Chapman (3-for-4) and Malone (2-for-3) led FSU with two RBI apiece. Zech and Martinez-Esteve also had multi-hit games.

UVa starter Andrew Dobies (6-2), who came into the game with an ACC-leading ERA of 2.13, surrendered eight runs (all earned) on 10 hits in 4.1 innings of work.

Florida State and Virginia continue the three game series Saturday at 7:00 p.m. FSU left-hander Brian Schultz (5-0, 2.50 ERA) is scheduled to face Cavalier right-hander Matt Avery (4-2, 2.85 ERA).

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - After losing Friday by a score of 8-0, No. 7 Virginia (37-10, 15-5 ACC) evened the series Saturday night with a 15-2 victory over No. 24 Florida State (30-18, 9-8 ACC) in front of a crowd of 2,430 at Davenport Field Saturday night. UVa starter Matt Avery (5-2) earned the win after allowing two runs on five hits in 7.1 innings of work. Third baseman Ryan Zimmerman had five hits to lead Virginia offensively.

The Cavaliers took control of the game early with four runs in the bottom of the first inning. Brian Schultz walked the first two Virginia batters (Matt Street and Mark Reynolds) of the game and Zimmerman reached on a bunt base hit to load the bases. Joe Koshansky plated Street with a groundout and Paul Gillispie knocked in the second run with an infield single. Koshansky would later score on a balk and Gillispie came around on a double by Scott Headd.

Another four-run inning put Virginia up 8-0 after three. After a single by Gillispie, Headd hit the first home run of his career over the left field wall. Street and Reynolds each added RBI-singles to complete the scoring in the third.

The Cavs erased any doubt with seven runs in the sixth to increase their lead to 15-0.

In the top of the seventh, the Seminoles broke the shutout with a single run as Ryne Malone singled home Brant Peacher. FSU added one more in the eighth on Stephen Drew's RBI single for the final margin of 15-2.

After an impressive outing last weekend at Clemson, Schultz (5-1) took the loss after allowing eight runs (all earned) on 10 hits in three innings of work. He walked three and struck out four.

Florida State and Virginia complete the three series Sunday at 1:00 p.m. FSU right-hander Mark Sauls (3-4, 5.55 ERA) is scheduled to face Cavalier left-hander Joe Koshansky (7-1, 2.45 ERA).

FLORIDA STATE 4, VIRGINIA 1
05/09/2004, CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Stephen Drew hit a two-run homer and Bryan Zech added a two-run double to lead No. 24 Florida State (31-18, 10-8 ACC) to a 4-1 victory over No. 7 Virginia (37-11, 15-6 ACC) in front of 2,241 fans at Davenport Field Sunday afternoon. After winning Friday's game and dropping Saturday's contest, FSU took the rubber match behind a strong performance by starter Mark Sauls. The Seminoles have now won back-to-back road series against ranked ACC opponents.

"That was a great baseball game," said Florida State head coach Mike Martin. "As a coach, you look at that game as one you are fortunate to win against what I consider to be one of the best baseball teams we've played this year."

Sophomore right-hander Mark Sauls (4-4) made an impressive return to the weekend rotation as he worked six innings and gave up just one run on six hits. Lynch finished off the Cavs with three scoreless innings as he didn't allow a hit and struck out four to pick up his third save of the season.

"Mark Sauls pitched a great ballgame," said Martin. "That was a big lift for our ball club. Kevin Lynch pitched three perfect innings and he is a guy who just enjoys being in these types of situations."

Drew started the scoring for Florida State with a two-run homer in the top of the first inning. The homer was Drew's 12th of the season and came with Zech aboard after a leadoff double.

UVa cut the lead in half with a run in the bottom of the fourth. With two outs, Matt Dunn and Tom Hagan drew walks to put runners on first and second. Scott Headd followed with a bloop single to right to plate Dunn and make it 2-1.

In the top of the seventh, the Seminoles added to the lead on a two-run double by Zech with two outs. Ryne Malone reached on an infield single, Matt Sauls walked and both runners moved up on Dennis Anderson's sacrifice bunt. Zech then ripped a double just inside the third base bag to put FSU up 4-1.

UVa starter Joe Koshansky (7-2) allowed four runs on six hits in 6.2 innings in the loss. Reliever Casey Lambert didn't allow a run over the final 2.1 innings.

Up next for the Seminoles is a Wednesday contest at Florida. First pitch is schedule for 6:30 p.m. and the game will be televised live by Sunshine Network. FSU wraps up the regular season at home against Duke next weekend and on the road at Wake Forest in two weeks before traveling to Salem, VA for the ACC Tournament (May 25-30).

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 26 Florida State (32-19, 11-8 ACC) used three four-run innings to drop Duke (23-25, 7-12 ACC) by a final score of 14-1 in front of 3,406 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Friday night. Aaron Cheesman tied a career high with four RBIs in the first three innings and Rhett James (7-2) had another strong performance to earn the win for the Seminoles. James worked seven innings allowed just one run on six hits with five strikeouts and one walk. The Blue Devils' run in the six ended a streak of 20 consecutive scoreless innings pitched by James. FSU also stole a season-high 10 bases in the win.

FSU got on the board first with two runs in the home half of the first inning. Bryan Zech drew a leadoff walk and stole second while Eddy Martinez-Esteve was also walked to put runners on first and second with one out. Both runners moved up a base on the successful double steal before Aaron Cheesman ripped a two-run single into center field that gave Florida State a 2-0 lead.

The Seminoles pushed their lead to 6-0 with four more runs in the third. After Stephen Drew walked and stole second, Martinez-Esteve drew his second straight walk to put runners on first second. As they did in the first inning, both runners advanced on a double steal before Cheesman's two-RBI single to left center plated both Drew and Martinez-Esteve. Cheesman moved up two bases after Gibbs Chapman's groundout and Matt Sauls' single to left. Cheesman scored as he and Sauls pulled off Florida State's third double steal of the game. Sauls later scored the fourth run of the inning on a passed ball by Duke catcher Brian Hernandez.

Florida State's margin grew to 10-0 in the fifth. Sauls had an RBI-single and Ryne Malone belted his ninth home run of the season, a three-run shot over the fence in right center, to cap off the four run inning.

The Blue Devils scored their only run in the sixth inning. Adam Murray singled and moved to third following Tim Layden's single and as Mike Miello reached on a fielder's choice. Hernandez's sacrifice fly to right would score Murray for Duke's only run score 10-1.

FSU added four more runs in the eighth behind Danny Wardell's three-run double which made the final score of 14-1.

Drew (2-for-4), Cheesman (3-for-4) and Sauls (2-for-2) led FSU offensively, while Zech (2), Drew (2), Martinez-Esteve (2), Cheesman (2), Sauls and Malone all had stolen bases on the night.

Blue Devil starter Tim Layden (5-4) suffered the loss after giving up 10 runs (nine earned) on seven hits with six walks and two strikeouts in four innings of work.

Florida State and Duke will continue the three-game ACC series on Saturday at 7:00 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium. Seminole left-hander Brian Schultz (5-1, 4.08 ERA) will face Blue Devil right-hander Greg Burke (5-5, 3.36 ERA).

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 26 Florida State (33-19, 12-8 ACC) scored seven runs in the first inning to defeat Duke (23-26, 7-13 ACC) by a final score of 10-7 in front of 3,237 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Saturday night. Bryan Zech had a career-high four hits while going 4-for-5 as four Seminoles had multi-hits on the night. Brian Schultz (6-1) earned the win after working five innings and allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits with one strikeout and two walks. Kevin Lynch notched his fourth save of the season after pitching the final three innings in relief.

Duke scored first with one run in the top of the first. After Javier Socorro reached on an error and back-to-back singles from Senterrio Landrum and Tim Layden to load the bases, Mike Miello grounded into the 6-4-3 double play to bring home Soccorro for the Blue Devils' first run of the game.

In the bottom half of the first, 11 Seminoles came to the plate en route to a seven run inning to give Florida State a 7-1 lead. Bryan Zech singled through the right side, Stephen Drew was walked and Zech moved to third on an errant throw to second from Duke catcher Brian Hernandez. Drew advanced to second on a wild pitch and Eddy Martinez-Esteve plated both runners with a two-run single to left. Gibbs Chapman's single up the middle moved Martinez-Esteve up a base before Aaron Cheesman's sacrifice fly to right scored Martinez-Esteve. Following Ryne Malone's single that put runners on first and second, Matt Sauls ripped an RBI-double down the left line to bring home Chapman from second. Shane Robinson knocked in two more runs with FSU's second straight double and Robinson would later score from third for the final run of the inning as Zech reached on a fielder's choice.

The Blue Devils added a run in the third to make the score 7-2. Jonathan Anderson was walked and advanced to third on Socorro's single to right. Anderson later scored as Landrum grounded into the 5-4-3 double play.

Martinez-Esteve's 14th home run of the season, a three-run blast to center in the third, gave the Seminoles an eight run cushion at 10-2.

DU scored two more runs Bryan Smith's RBI-double scored Mike Miello in the fourth which made the score 10-3. Smith moved up a base on Adam Murray's single through the left side and later scored on John Berger's sacrifice fly to center.

Duke scored two runs in the seventh and one in the ninth inning to make the final score of 10-7. Frank Radziwon and Kevin Lynch each walked in a run with the bases loaded to account for the two runs in the seventh, while Smith's double down the right line plated Layden from second who earlier reached on an error for the final run of the game.

Greg Burke (5-6) took the loss for the Blue Devils after getting shelled for 10 runs on 10 hits with two strikeouts and three walks in three innings of work. Kevin Thompson worked the final five innings in scoreless relief.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 26 Florida State (34-19, 13-8 ACC) scored all six of its runs in the first four innings as the Seminoles went on to complete the sweep of Duke (23-27, 7-14 ACC) by a final score of 6-3 in front of 2,557 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Mark Sauls (5-4) earned the win after allowing three runs (one earned) on three hits in six innings of work. Sauls fanned four batters with two walks. The Seminoles pitching staff only surrendered one hit in the final three innings.

Seniors Matt Sauls and Eddie Cannon turned in strong performances on Senior Day in FSU's final regular season home game. Sauls tied a career high with three hits while going 3-for-4 and Cannon earned his first-career save as he pitched a perfect final three innings of relief. Cannon had three strikeouts and did not allow a hit.

The Blue Devils opened the game with two runs in the first inning. Senterrio Landrum reached on a fielder's choice and Tim Layden was walked to put runners on first and second. Landrum and Layden successful executed a double steal while Landrum would score as Aaron Cheesman's throw to third sailed into left field. Layden later scored from third on Bryan Smith's RBI-single that give Duke the 2-0 lead.

FSU cut the lead in half at 2-1 with a run in the bottom of the first. Stephen Drew singled and advanced to third on a failed pickoff attempt before scoring on Gibbs Chapman's sacrifice fly to left.

Florida State took the lead for good at 3-2 with two runs in the second inning. Ryne Malone walked and scored on Matt Sauls double down the left line as he beat out the throw at home plate. Sauls advanced to third on the throw home and came home two batters later on Dennis Anderson's fielder's choice sacrifice bunt.

The Seminoles added a run in the third and two in the fourth for their final run total of six. With one out in the third, Cheesman and Malone recorded back-to-back singles and Sauls RBI-single plated Cheesman to make the score 4-2. In the fourth, Zech was walked and came around to score on Drew's 15th career triple. The triple put Drew second all time on FSU's career triple list. Eddy Martinez-Esteve's RBI-groundout plated Drew to give FSU the 6-2 advantage.

In the sixth inning, Adam Murray reached on an error with the bases loaded to score Brian Hernandez to which made the final score of 6-3.

Zach Schreiber (4-4) suffered the loss for the Blue Devils after getting knocked around four six runs (five earned) on seven hits. Schreiber walked three with one strikeout in four innings of work.

FLORIDA STATE 11, WAKE FOREST 10
05/20/2004, WINSTON-SALEM, NC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - No. 22 Florida State (35-19, 14-8 ACC) held off Wake Forest (17-30), 4-18 ACC) by a final score of 11-10 Thursday afternoon at Gene Hooks Stadium. Stephen Drew became the first Seminole to hit for the cycle since Chris Smith accomplished the feat against St. Joseph's on March 7, 2000. Leading 9-0 midway through the eighth inning, the Demon Deacons scored five to cut FSU's lead to 9-5. FSU added what looked like a meaningless pair of runs in the top of the ninth, but they would end up being the difference as Wake scored five in the bottom of the ninth for the 11-10 final.

"I've felt really good at the plate the last couple games," said Drew. "I'm just trying to take advantage of every at bat and get good pitches to hit. Hitting for the cycle is not something I was trying to accomplish, it just happened to work out that I hit a ball into the gap for the triple in may last at bat. The most important thing was getting the win. We know that each game from here through the ACC Tournament is important in terms of setting us up for the postseason."

The Seminoles started the scoring with two runs in the top of the second. Aaron Cheesman doubled down the right field line and came home on Ryne Malone's single. After Malone stole second, Matt Sauls ripped a base hit up the middle to pick up the RBI.

FSU added one in the top of third on three singles by Dennis Anderson, Drew and Eddy Martinez-Esteve. Anderson scored when Wake center fielder Matt Miller was charged with an error.

Two more runs in the fifth extended the lead to 5-0. Drew doubled to center and Martinez-Esteve reached on an infield single. Drew scored on a single by Cheesman and Martinez-Esteve crossed the plate on a sacrifice fly by Malone.

Drew's 13th home run of the season, a solo blast to right, put the Seminoles up 6-0 in the seventh.

The Seminoles made it 9-0 in the top of the eighth on a two-run triple by Drew and an RBI-double by Martinez-Esteve. The triple completed the cycle for Drew. After a strikeout in the first, Drew singled to right, doubled to center, homered to right and then tripled to right center.

Wake's rally began in the bottom half of the eighth on a two-run single by Matt Antonelli. With two outs, Steve LeFaivre launched a three-run home run to right to chase FSU starter Rhett James.

Florida State scored two in the ninth to push the lead to 11-5. Cheesman doubled and Malone singled to put runners on first and third. Cheesman scored on a single by Sauls and Malone scored on a groundout by Shane Robinson.

Tyler Chambliss took the hill for FSU in the ninth. After Robinson made an impressive diving catch in center, Miller homered to make it 11-6. Chambliss then loaded the bases, thanks in part to two Seminole errors, and gave way to Kevin Lynch, who had moved to left field after recording the final out in the eighth inning. Lynch struck out the first batter he faced and things got interesting when LeFaivre hit a grand slam to cut the lead to one. After a walk, Lynch got a fly ball to end the game.

James improved to 8-2 with the win. The senior allowed five runs on nine hits with three strikeouts and one walk. James did not allow a run in his first seven innings of work. Despite giving up the home run, Lynch picked up his fifth save of the year.

Cheesman and Drew led the Seminoles offensively with four hits apiece. Martinez-Esteve was 3-for-5 while Malone and Sauls were both 2-for-4 with two RBI.

The series continues on Friday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. at Hooks Stadium. Wake Forest's Kyle Young will oppose FSU's Eddie Cannon. The Seminoles will leave directly from Winston-Salem, N.C. for the ACC Tournament in Salem, Va., May 25-30.

FLORIDA STATE 27, WAKE FOREST 3
05/21/2004, WINSTON-SALEM, NC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - No. 22 Florida State (36-19, 15-8 ACC) pounded out a season-high 27 hits en route to an easy 27-3 victory at Wake Forest (17-31), 4-19 ACC) Friday afternoon. All nine Seminole starters had a hit and FSU belted six home runs, including two from Eddy Martinez-Esteve. Bryan Zech recorded a career-high with four hits while Ryne Malone had three hits and was just a single away from the cycle. Starter Eddie Cannon (8-5) earned the win, allowing just one run on five hits in six innings of work.

The scoring started in the top first as the Seminoles took advantage of two Wake Forest errors to plate a pair of runs. Zech singled and eventually scored on a passed ball. Stephen Drew, who had reached on an error, scored when Demon Deacon left fielder Casey Sterk misplayed a fly ball.

After Zech doubled in a run in the second inning, Florida State broke the game open with nine runs on eight hits in the third. The big hits came on a two-run single by Drew and a run-scoring triple by Malone.

Martinez-Esteve continued the scoring barrage with a two-run homer to right in the fourth. Malone followed with a solo home run, his 10th of the season, to make it 15-0 through four innings of play.

Wake finally got on the board in the fifth on Ben Ingold's RBI-double to right.

In the sixth, Martinez-Esteve launched his second home run of the game to start a seven-run rally. The homer, which cleared the wall in center, was the team-high 16th of the season for Martinez-Esteve. Four more runs crossed the plate after the round-tripper to make it 22-1.

Danny Wardell doubled home Gibbs Chapman in the top of the eighth and Brant Peacher later hit a three-run homer to right. Reliever Kevin Lynch made the most of a pinch-hit appearance as he got into the home run derby with a solo shot to right. The homer was the first of Lynch's career and the sixth of the game for the Tribe.

Wake added two runs in the ninth to make the final score 27-3.

Zech (4-for-5), Malone (3-for-6), Dennis Anderson (3-for-6), Wardell (2-for-2), Aaron Cheesman (2-for-3), Peacher (2-for-3), Matt Sauls (2-for-4), Shane Robinson (2-for-4) and Martinez-Esteve (2-for-5) were the nine Seminoles with multi-hit games.

The series concludes Saturday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. at Hooks Stadium. Sophomore Mark Sauls is scheduled to get the start for Florida State. The Seminoles will leave Sunday morning from Winston-Salem, N.C. and head to Salem, VA for the 2004 ACC Tournament.

FLORIDA STATE 10, WAKE FOREST 6
05/22/2004, WINSTON-SALEM, NC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - No. 22 Florida State (37-19, 16-8 ACC) used a four-run eighth inning to finish off the sweep of Wake Forest (17-32, 4-20 ACC) with a 10-6 victory on Saturday afternoon at Hooks Stadium. The Seminoles have swept their final two conference opponents and have now won four straight series. FSU who locked up the No. 3 seed in the upcoming ACC Tournament will face NC State on Wednesday night at 8:30 p.m. in Salem, VA.

Saturday's game saw three ties and four lead changes before the Tribe pulled away in the eighth inning.

Florida State scored one run in the top of the first on Aaron Cheesman's RBI single plated Bryan Zech from third who had singled to left to lead off the inning. The Demon Deacons would answer with two runs in the bottom of the first to take a 2-1 lead on Brad Scioletti's two-run double.

Wake Forest added a pair of runs in the second inning to stake a 4-1. A walk, single and hit batsman loaded the bases for Nick Blue. Then, Seminole starter Mark Sauls uncorked a wild pitch to score Doug Riepe from third. Moments later, Blue's RBI groundout scored Matt Miller.

The Seminoles came back to reclaim the lead in the fourth inning with four runs off Deacon starter Tim Morley. Morley, who did not factor in the decision, lasted six innings, allowed six runs on ten hits with two strikeouts and two walks.

WFU came back again to take the lead again. Riepe's solo homer tied the game at five. Later in the inning, Matt Antonelli singled home Miller as Wake Forest took a 6-5 lead.

Florida State tied the game at six in the sixth inning on an RBI groundout by Bryan Zech.

Wake Forest had a golden opportunity to take the lead in the bottom of the seventh inning when the Deacons put runners on the corners for Scioletti, whose first inning double had given the Deacons their first lead. But this time, Florida State reliever Tyler Chambliss (2-1) got Scioletti to bounce into an inning-ending double play.

It was Florida State's second of four double plays of the game. The Seminoles turned eight twin killings on the weekend.

That set up the decisive eighth inning. Two singles and a sacrifice bunt put runners on second and third with one out for Florida State. With the infield playing for a play at the plate, Zech hit a slow roller between third base and shortstop. Ingold made the stop and fired home, but the throw was late and Gibbs Chapman scored to give FSU a 7-6 lead.

Moments later, Florida State designated hitter Eddy Martinez-Esteve hit a three-run home run to center fielder off reliever Charlie Mellies (3-3) and just out of the reach of a leaping Matt Miller. It was Martinez-Esteve's third home run of the series and it gave the Seminoles an insurmountable 10-6 lead.

Wake Forest threatened in the eighth and ninth innings, but grounded into double plays both times.

The Seminoles will open the ACC Tournament on Wednesday night at 8:30 p.m. against NC State. The Wolpack are coming off a series win over in-state rival North Carolina this past weekend.

FLORIDA STATE 6, NORTH CAROLINA STATE 5
05/26/2004, ACC, Salem, Va
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

SALEM, VA - Stephen Drew singled home the game-winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift Florida State to a 6-5 victory over NC State in the final game of the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Tournament. Drew's two-out single off of Wolfpack reliever Joey Devine chased Shane Robinson home with the winning run.

Devine (0-3) replaced starter Michael Rogers to start the ninth inning, but allowed two runs on three hits while recording just two outs. Florida State releiver Tyler Chambliss threw just six pitches to pick up the win and improve to 3-1.

Florida State, which improved to 38-19, advanced to a second-round game winners-bracket game against Duke, which shocked second-seeded Virginia, 6-5. NC State, which fell to 34-21 with the loss, will face Virginia on Thursday at 1:30 p.m. in an elimination game. Vern Sterry (9-2, 1.99) will face Virginia ace Andrew Dobies (6-2, 3.24).

The Seminoles scored a run in the bottom of the second, their first off Rogers since March 22, 2003, in Kinston. Aaron Cheesman led off and lined a double down the left-field line. Matt Sauls laid down a sacrifice to move Cheesman to third, and Gibbs Chapman singled to left to give FSU a 1-0 lead after two.

NC State tied the game at 1-1 in the top of the fourth. Ryan Johnson led off and reached on a throwing error by shortstop Stephen Drew, and David Hicks singled to right. Mike Jensen popped up on the infield for the first out of the inning and Lee Mezistrano flied out to center field, but Eric Taylor lined a single to center to drive in Johnson with the tying run.

Florida State did some major damage in the bottom of the fifth. Chapman led off with a triple into the gap in left-center field, and Shane Robinson smashed a ground ball off of Taylor at third base that went into foul territory for an RBI infield double. Dennis Anderson bunted into a double play, but Rogers hit Bryan Zech with a pitch, and Stephen Drew got an opposite-field fly ball into the near-gale-force wind blowing out to left field for a two-run homer that gave the Seminoles a 4-1 lead.

The wind blew out for both teams. James finally ran out of gas in the top of the sixth, and the Wolfpack and the wind made him pay. Mike Jensen led off with a single up the middle, and Mezistrano and Taylor walked to load the bases. Dustin Knight hit a fly ball to deep center field, and the wind picked it up and carried it way over the fence in center for a grand-slam homer, Kinght's second grand slam of the season and the Wolfpack's fourth. That gave NC State a 5-4 lead.

Sauls started off the bottom of the ninth with a double to left field. He immediately went to third on a wild pitch and scored when Shane Robinson hit a triple to left. Devine walked pinch-hitter Derrick Smith to bring up Drew, who lined the 1-2 pitch up the middle for the game-winning hit.

GEORGIA TECH 13, FLORIDA STATE 4
05/28/2004, ACC, Salem, Va
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

SALEM, VA - Clifton Remole drove in four runs with a pair of two-run doubles Friday night and Georgia Tech beat Florida State 13-4 to advance to the championship round of the ACC tournament.

The top-seeded Yellow Jackets (41-17) scored seven times in the second inning and extended their winning streak to 20 games, the longest in the nation. They are one win away from defending their ACC championship.

Last year, they did it by winning a triple-header on the final day.

This time, they could do it by winning just four games. The Seminoles (39-20), meanwhile, will have to win three more times to be the champions under a new format that favors the last survivor in the winners' bracket.

Remole's smash down the right-field line was the Yellow Jackets' seventh hit of the second inning against Eddie Cannon (8-6). The first six were consecutive singles that followed a strikeout to start the inning.

The rally wiped out a 1-0 lead for Florida State, and it became 8-1 an inning later when Gibbs Chapman let an easy line drive glance off his glove for a two-base error, Mike Trapani singled him to third and Tyler Greene singled him home, the Jackets' 11th hit against Cannon.

Florida State coach Mike Martin then brought in Matt DiBlasi, who quieted the Yellow Jackets' bats until the eighth to keep his team in it.

Then the Yellow Jackets clinched it, scoring five more times with Remole's second two-run double the biggest of four more hits.

Georgia Tech finished with 15 hits, the Seminoles nine.

Florida State scored once in the fourth and twice in the fifth against Andrew Kown, but Jordan Crews (2-0) came on to get Matt Sauls to hit into an inning-ending double play in the fifth and closed out the game. Crews worked 4 2-3 innings, allowing two hits and a walk.

FLORIDA STATE 8, NORTH CAROLINA 7
05/29/2004, ACC, Salem, Va
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

SALEM, VA - Matt Sauls laid down a perfectly placed two-strike safety squeeze in the 11th inning Saturday and Florida State beat North Carolina 8-7 to advance to the ACC tournament championship.

Sauls' bunt between the pitcher and first base could only be fielded by pitcher Michael Gross, but he bobbled his attempted flip to the catcher, allowing Stephen Drew to score and end the 3 1/2-hour game.

The Seminoles (40-20) had barely over an hour to get cleaned up and ready to play Georgia Tech (41-17) for the championship. Florida State needed to win Saturday night and again on Sunday to win the title.

North Carolina (41-19) went home to await an NCAA tournament bid.

The winning rally started when Drew singled to left-center leading off against Gross (4-4) and was sacrificed to second. The Tar Heels walked Ryne Malone to set up a double play, then elected to pitch to Sauls.

Facing a 1-2 pitch, Sauls made the perfect surprise play.

Rhett James (9-2), who allowed eight hits and three runs in five innings, earned the victory, and allowed Florida State to use only two pitchers on a day when they weren't many more available.

Before the game, coach Mike Martin suspended five players, including top relievers Kevin Lynch and Tyler Chambliss, for violating curfew.

All five were reinstated in time for the second game.

The Seminoles seemed certain to win in the ninth when Malone hit a one-out double and made it to third when the ball was kicked in the outfield. After two intentional walks, Brandon Manasa hit a sinking liner to left. Jay Cox made a diving catch, then threw to third to easily double off Malone, more than halfway home having assumed it would be a hit.

North Carolina erased a 7-4 deficit with a run in the seventh and two in the eighth. Matt Ellington doubled and scored on a sacrifice fly by Justin Webb in the seventh, the inning ending when Shane Robinson caught Chris Iannetta's long drive while crashing into the centerfield fence.

Robinson started the eighth by catching Marshall Hubbard's extra-base bid in a fullout dive, but three singles, a walk and a high hopper to first base brought in two runs to pull the Tar Heels even.

Earlier, a reversed call allowed the Seminoles to take a 7-4 lead.

Florida State had loaded the bases on three walks by Bryan Phillips when Dennis Anderson hit a two-out grounder to short. Greg Mangum fielded it and flipped to second, where the umpire initially called Gibbs Chapman out, bringing Martin out to argue that Bryan Steed bobbled the ball.

The Tar Heels trotted off the field, Martin came on to argue, and all four umpires huddled and then changed the call, agreeing with Martin.

That gave the Seminoles their fifth run, a wild pitch brought in another, and Shane Robinson's infield single made it a 7-4 lead.

North Carolina had just tied the game in the top of the inning on a single, a walk and a fielding error by Malone at second base.

Malone was only in at second because regular second baseman Bryan Zech was one of the players suspended. Designated hitter Eddy Martinez-Esteve also was unavailable, as was starting pitcher Mark Sauls.

FLORIDA STATE 8, GEORGIA TECH 7
05/29/2004, ACC, Salem, Va
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

SALEM, VA - Eddy Martinez-Esteve hit a tie-breaking two-run homer in the eighth inning and No. 19 Florida State (41-20) forced another game in the ACC tournament with an 8-7 victory against No. 5 Georgia Tech (41-17) on Saturday night. The loss ended Georgia Tech's winning streak at 20 games. The two teams will meet again on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. for the deciding game of the ACC Championship.

Martinez-Esteve's 18th home run came in a four-run eighth for Florida State, which also beat North Carolina 8-7 in 11 innings to get to the championship round. Because the top-seeded Yellow Jackets were unbeaten, the Seminoles need another victory to dethrone the defending champions.

The rally in the eighth, which also included a run-scoring double by Bryan Zech and an RBI single by Stephen Drew in front of the home run, capped the Seminoles' rally from a 6-1 deficit after four innings. It also completed a remarkable recovery for Martinez-Esteve, Zech and pitchers Tyler Chambliss and Kevin Lynch, who were suspended for the game against the Tar Heels after missing their curfew the previous night.

Chambliss went six innings, allowing six runs but keeping the Seminoles in the game and out of their weary bullpen while Kevin Lynch (4-4) worked the last three innings, allowing only two hits. One of them was Steven Blackwood's two-out solo home run in the ninth, but Lynch got Brandon Boggs to fly to center to finish the victory.

The Seminoles' comeback started in the fifth. A walk, singles by Drew, Martinez-Esteve and Aaron Cheesman and a sacrifice fly by Ryne Malone made it 6-3, and a double by Cheesman and Matt Sauls' single in the seventh pulled Florida State to 6-4.

When Chambliss and Lynch shut the door on the Yellow Jackets (41-18), the Seminoles kept coming, forcing the improbable deciding game.

Florida State had already played a 3 1/2-hour game against North Carolina, winning in the bottom of the 11th, when the game got started, and the Seminoles looked worn out, especially in the second inning.

With runners on first and second and a run already in, Tyler Chambliss caught Eric Patterson off first, then ran toward him between first and second. When Patterson made his move toward second, Chambliss threw the ball over the head of second baseman Bryan Zech and into right-center. That allowed Mike Trapani to score, and when Patterson headed for third, the throw from the outfield skipped by third baseman Dennis Anderson, who also slipped picking it up as Patterson also scored. That gave the Yellow Jackets a 4-1 lead, and they made it 6-1 in the fourth when Mike Nickeas homered to left, his sixth home run of the season.

The Seminoles and Yellowjackets will meet again on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. for the ACC Championship.

FLORIDA STATE 17, GEORGIA TECH 5
05/30/2004, ACC Championship, Salem, Va
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

SALEM, VA - Florida State left nothing to chance this time, taking a big early lead and getting solid pitching from Mark Sauls to beat Georgia Tech 17-5 Sunday in the ACC tournament championship.

The victory completed a remarkable comeback for the Seminoles (42-20), who beat North Carolina on Saturday to make it to the championship round, then beat the Yellow Jackets a few hours later to force Sunday's game.

Both victories Saturday were by 8-7 scores and were decided late, giving Florida State three of the record eight one-run victories in the tournament and a desire to avoid another with a bullpen short on arms.

Sauls did that, and the offense helped out by starting fast.

Florida State scored four times in the second inning and three times in the third, taking a 7-2 lead that took the pressure off Sauls (6-4), allowing him to throw strikes and let his defense do most of the work.

Pitching three days after he went five innings and threw 73 pitches against Duke, Sauls lasted six innings, allowing seven hits and five runs, only three earned, while walking one and striking out none.

He left leading 11-5. Matt DiBlasi finished for his second career save.

Aaron Cheesman had four hits and scored three times, Shane Robinson knocked in runs in his first three at-bats and Eddy Martinez-Esteve homered for the second consecutive game as the Seminoles had 20 hits.

Robinson, who was 11-for-26 with six RBI and also made several dazzling catches in centerfield, was selected MVP of the tournament.

After Georgia Tech scored twice in the bottom of the first on a double by Tyler Green and Micah Owings' double-play grounder, the Seminoles scored the next 11 runs and scored in seven of the next eight innings.

Blake Wood (1-2), making only his fourth start of the season for the Yellow Jackets, allowed five runs in two-plus innings and got the loss.

The game was a mere formality as far as the NCAA tournament was concerned, as both schools were named as host sites for the regionals.

FLORIDA STATE 10, BETHUNE-COOKMAN COLL 3
06/04/2004, TALLAHASSEE, FL, NCAA
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 16 Florida State (43-20, 16-8 ACC) opened regional play by defeating Bethune-Cookman (27-27, 14-4 MEAC) by a final score of 10-3 in front of 4,061 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Friday night. Senior right-hander Eddie Cannon (9-6) earned the win as he pitched his first-career complete game and tied a career high with nine strikeouts. Cannon gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits and only allowed two base runners through the first six innings. Dennis Anderson and Bryan Zech recorded back-to-back home runs in the sixth inning to lead the Seminole offense. Juan Figueroa's two-run home run highlighted the scoring for the Wildcats.

"I will start off by saying Eddie (Cannon) was obviously sharp tonight," said head coach Mike Martin. "I thought we obviously played solid other than the run that we gave up on the ball we misplayed in the corner. This win puts us in a good position for tomorrow with a rested bullpen. Eddie (Cannon) took care of that in great fashion."

The Seminoles used four walks and a hit batter in the third inning to jump out to a 3-0 lead. Anderson led off the third inning with a walk and moved to second as Bryan Zech singled through the left side. Both runners moved up a base on a wild pitch while Anderson would later score on a balk moving Zech to third. After Stephen Drew recorded the second walk of the inning, Eddy Martinez-Esteve's sacrifice fly to left plated Zech for the second run of the inning. Ryne Malone got on with another walk and both runners advanced on a wild pitch, but an errant throw to third from catcher Bryan Maples allowed Drew to come home to give FSU a 3-0 lead.

FSU added two more runs in the fourth to push its lead to 5-0. Anderson and Zech both walked to start the inning. Both runners moved up on a wild pitch before Martinez-Esteve reached on a fielder's choice and Anderson was thrown out at the plate. Zech scored from third as he and Martinez-Esteve successfully executed a double steal. Martinez-Esteve moved to third on a wild pitch before scoring on Malone's RBI-single to right.

Florida State's lead grew to 7-0 with a pair of runs in the fifth inning. Anderson plated Gibbs Chapman with an RBI-single through the left side and later scored when Aaron Cheesman drew a bases loaded walk.

Anderson and Zech hit back-to-back home runs in the sixth to make the score 10-0. Anderson's, a two-run shot to left, was his third of the season a Zech's marked his seventh of the year.

Figueroa's two-run home run in the seventh got the Wildcats got on the board to make the score 10-2. Brad Frick started the inning off with a walk to set up Figueroa's blast, his eighth of the season. The Wildcats added an unearned run as Carlos Garcia tripled down the right line and scored on a throwing error.

Mumba Rivera (7-7) took the loss for Bethune-Cookman after allowing three runs on two hits in the first three innings. Rivera walked six FSU batters with one strikeout.

Zech (2-for-2) and Anderson (2-for-3) were the only Seminoles to have multi hits on the night as Zech scored three runs while Anderson drove in three. Figueroa (2-for-4) led the Wildcat offense that was held to five hits.

Bethune-Cookman will face Oklahoma State in an elimination game at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday morning.

Florida State will play UCF on Saturday at 3:00 p.m. Senior right-hander Rhett James (9-2, 3.31 ERA) is scheduled to face Golden Knight left-hander Kyle Bono (8-0, 1.79 ERA).

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Top-seeded Florida State (44-20) held on for a 3-2 victory over third-seeded UCF (45-17) in front of 4,103 fans in the winners' bracket of the NCAA Tallahassee Regional at Dick Howser Stadium Saturday afternoon. FSU right-hander Rhett James (10-2), who no-hit the Knights through the first 6.1 innings, earned the win after giving up just two runs on three hits in seven innings of work. James struck out six and walked one. DiBlasi picked up the save, his second of the season, after working the final 2.1 innings of scoreless relief.

The Seminoles took the early lead with a run in the top of the first. After a Bryan Zech leadoff single, Stephen Drew and Eddy Martinez-Esteve drew walks to load the bases with no outs. Kyle Bono struck out cleanup hitter Aaron Cheesman, but Ryne Malone's sacrifice fly to center scored Zech and put FSU up 1-0.

In the top of the fourth, Florida State added a pair of runs to make it 3-0. Malone drew a leadoff walk, moved to third on a double by Matt Sauls and came around to score on a sacrifice fly by Gibbs Chapman. Shane Robinson then plated Sauls from second with a single to right field.

The Knights mounted a rally in the bottom of the eighth. Kevin Richmond got things started with a single through the left side, pinch-hitter David Mann drew a walk and Drew Butera loaded the bases with a bunt base hit. Kevin Lynch entered the game in relief of James with no outs. Marshall Bernhard came through with a pinch-hit double to right center that cut the FSU lead 3-2. With runners on second and third and still no outs, Seminole skipper Mike Martin again went to the bullpen. Seminole left-hander Matt DiBlasi came in and got a pop-up to second base and back-to-back groundouts to the mound sandwiched around an intentional walk.

UCF right-hander Kyle Bono (8-2) took the loss after allowing three runs on five hits in seven innings. Bono struck out six and issued a season-high four walks.

Zech and Drew led the Seminoles offensively with two hits while Sauls had the only extra base hit with a double in the fourth.

UCF will immediately play Oklahoma State in an elimination game at 7:00 p.m. while Florida State advances to Sunday's 1:30 p.m. championship game. Sunday's game will be televised live by Sunshine Network.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State (44-21) fell to UCF (47-17) by a final score of 7-5 in front of 3,897 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Golden Knights scored six runs over the final four innings to force a decisive second championship game at the NCAA Tallahassee Regional. Dee Brown's solo home run to lead off the eighth inning sealed the win for Central Florida. Brian Brooks (4-1) earned the victory after holding FSU to two runs (one earned) on four hits in 5.1 innings of relief. Brooks walked two with one strikeout.

FSU scored first with a single run in the bottom of the first. Stephen Drew tripled off the screen in right field and scored on a wild pitch from UCF starter Mike Billek to put the Seminoles up 1-0. Drew's triple was the 19th of his career, which tied him with Mickey Lopez for most triples all-time at FSU.

The Seminole lead grew to 3-0 after a pair of solo home runs from Ryne Malone and Drew in the second and third innings. Malone led off the second with a solo home run, his 11th of the season and Drew's two-out solo blast to right center in the third gave Florida State a three run lead.

UCF cut the FSU lead to 3-1 with a run in the fourth. Matt Ray walked and advanced to third after a stolen base and an errant throw by catcher Aaron Cheesman. Ray came home to score on Dee Brown's infield single for the Golden Knights first run.

Bryan Zech's sacrifice fly to right plated Shane Robinson to give the Seminoles a three run lead at 4-1. Robinson was hit by pitch, stole second and moved to third on a fielding error by second baseman Matt Ray before scoring on the sacrifice fly.

The Golden Knights got back in the game with three runs in the sixth inning. David Mann and Clay Timpner recorded back-to-back singles and Ray reached on a fielding error on a sacrifice bunt to load the bases with no outs. Brown followed with a two-run single through the left side to bring UCF to within one at 4-3. After Ryan Bono's sacrifice bunt moved the runners up a base, Marshall Bernhard's RBI-groundout scored Ray to tie the game at four apiece.

Central Florida took its first lead of the game with one run in the seventh inning. Kevin Richmond singled to center, advanced to second on a wild pitch and Drew Butera's sacrifice bunt moved him to third with one out. Timpners' double down the left line brought home Richmond for the go ahead run.

Florida State tied the game at 5-5 in the home half of the seventh. Robinson singled and Dennis Anderson's sacrifice bunt pushed him to second before scoring on Zech's RBI-single to center field.

UCF took the lead for good with a pair of runs in the eighth and ninth innings. Brown hit a solo home run to lead off the eighth and Timpner's double to right plated Richmond who had reached on an error earlier in the ninth.

Matt DiBlasi (0-1) suffered his first loss of the season after giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits. DiBlasi also had two strikeouts.

Florida State and UCF will play one more game at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday with the winner advancing to the NCAA Super Regionals. The game will be televised live by Sunshine Network in Pensacola, Panama City, Tallahassee, Orlando (minus Ocala) and Miami.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State (45-21) defeated UCF (47-18) by a final score of 19-3 in front of 4,074 fans at Dick Howser Stadium to win the NCAA Tallahassee Regional and advance to Super Regional competition next weekend. The Seminoles have advanced to the round of 16 in each of the six years since NCAA Super Regional play began in 1999. FSU shortstop Stephen Drew hit two home runs and Matt Sauls went a career-best 4-for-5 as the Seminoles totaled 22 hits in the game. Bryan Zech and Drew shared Tallahassee Regional MVP honors.

FSU freshman Brian Schultz (7-1) earned the win as he gave up just three runs on six hits in 7.0 innings pitched. Schultz struck out six UCF batters and walked one. Nine Florida State hits went for extra bases including five home runs.

The Seminoles struck early with a pair of runs in the top of the first. Stephen Drew homered in his second consecutive game, a solo shot to right, to make it 1-0. Aaron Cheesman started a two-out rally with a single and Ryne Malone was hit by a pitch before Matt Sauls picked up the RBI with a single up the middle.

Shane Robinson got the scoring going for FSU with a solo home run to left in the second inning. The homer was the first of the year for the Seminole freshman. With Dennis Anderson on third after a single and a fielder's choice, Eddy Martinez-Esteve's sacrifice lead fly increased the lead to 4-0.

The Knights cut the lead in half with two runs in the bottom of the third inning. Drew Butera doubled, moved to third on a groundout and came around to score on a single by Matt Ray. After a walk to Dee Brown, Ryan Bono plated Ray with a single to right.

In the top of the fourth, the Seminoles sent 11 batters to the plate as they scored five runs. Bryan Zech started things off with a solo home run to left, his eighth of the year. Drew walked and Martinez-Esteve singled to left before Aaron Cheesman's double knocked in the second run of the inning. Three consecutive RBI-singles by Malone, Robinson and Gibbs Chapman made it 9-2. With the bases loaded, Brown robbed Zech of a second homer when he pulled back a fly ball that would have cleared the wall in left for the the third out of the inning.

Drew launched his third home run of the day, Sauls had an RBI-double and Robinson knocked in two more with a single up the middle to highlight a four-run fifth that made it 13-2.

The scoring continued for FSU in the sixth when Martinez-Esteve had an RBI-double and Malone hit a three-run homer to right. Rhett James plated two more in the seventh with a double to right center.

Brett Bordwine (1-1) took the loss for the Golden Knights after allowing seven runs on eight hits in 3.1 innings of work. Bordwine had four strikeouts and two walks in the loss.

Florida State advances to play the winner of Arkansas and Wichita State next weekend.

ARKANSAS 7, FLORIDA STATE 5
06/11/2004, FAYETTEVILLE, AR, NCAA Super Regional
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - In the first game of Friday's NCAA Super Regional, Florida State (45-22) fell to Arkansas (44-22) by a final score of 7-5 in front of a record crowd of 9,338 at Baum Stadium. Down 5-3, the Razorbacks scored three runs in the bottom of the fifth to take the lead for good. All five of Florida State's runs came with two outs and the 7-9 hitters in the Seminole lineup went 6-for-13 with four RBIs.

Casey Rowlett put the Razorbacks up early with a solo home run to left in the bottom of the first.

The Seminoles answered with a run of their own in the top of the second. Matt Sauls drew a walk, moved to third after a passed ball and a groundout, and scored on Shane Robinson's two-out single through the left side.

Arkansas went up 2-1 in the bottom of the third when Clay Goodwin doubled and scored on Scott Hode's single to left.

FSU took its first lead with a pair of runs in the fourth inning. Ryne Malone led off with a single to center and moved to third on Gibbs Chapman's single up the middle. With two outs, Dennis Anderson knocked in Malone with a base hit to right. Bryan Zech made it 3-2 with another two-out RBI-single.

The lead didn't last long as the Razorbacks tied it up on a solo homer by Brady Toops in the bottom half of the fourth.

The Seminoles got another clutch, two-out hit in the fifth as Chapman ripped a double to right center to score two. Aaron Cheesman and Malone were on first and second after back-to-back singles.

The back and forth game continued as Arkansas took the lead in fifth with three unearned runs. With two outs, Hode scored on a double by Danny Hamblin. Cheesman couldn't handle the throw to the plate and was charged with an error on the play when Hode slid home. Two more runs would score on RBI-singles by Devin Day and Scott Bridges to put the Hogs up 6-5.

The Hogs added an insurance run in the eighth when Goodwin doubled and came around to score on a base hit by Hamblin.

Boyd Goodner (3-3) earned the win after allowing one hit in 1.1 scoreless innings. Jay Sawatski picked up the save after working the final three innings and not allowing a run.

Arkansas starter Clint Brannon was touched up for five runs on 10 hits in 4.2 innings of work. Brannon struck out three and walked one. FSU starter Rhett James (10-3) also gave up 10 hits in 4.2 innings and allowed five runs (three earned) in the loss.

Robinson led the Seminoles with three hits and Chapman had a team-high two RBI.

FSU right-hander Eddie Cannon (9-6, 4.01 ERA) is scheduled to face Arkansas right-hander Charley Boyce (9-2, 3.18 ERA) in game two Saturday. First pitch is set for 8:00 p.m. (EST) and will be carried live on ESPN2.

ARKANSAS 4, FLORIDA STATE 2
06/12/2004, FAYETTEVILLE, AR, NCAA Super Regional Championship
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - Florida State (45-23) lost another two-run game to Arkansas (45-22) in front of a Baum Stadium record crowd of 10,027 Saturday night as the Razorbacks won the Super Regional and earned a trip to the College World Series. Trailing 4-1 in the bottom of the ninth, the Seminoles got two runners on but could only score one in a 4-2. Eddie Cannon (9-7) pitched well in the loss, allowing just two earned runs in 8.1 innings with six strikeouts and no walks.

Jake Dugger got the Razorbacks on the scoreboard first when he led off the game with a solo home run to left.

FSU got a run in the bottom of the second to tie things up. Aaron Cheesman led off with a triple down the line in right field and came home on Matt Sauls' single up the middle.

Arkansas took advantage of three Seminole errors for three runs (two unearned) in the third to gain a 4-1 lead they would not relinquish. After Devin Day doubled and moved to third on a failed pick-off attempt, FSU center fielder Shane Robinson couldn't haul in a fly ball off the bat of Scott Bridges. With Bridges on third after Robinson's error, Dugger followed with an RBI-single. Dugger moved around to third on two groundouts and then scored on a base hit to left by Scott Hode.

The Seminoles put runners on second and third with one out in the bottom of the ninth after Shane Robinson doubled and Bryan Zech reached on an error. Stephen Drew laced a line drive to left for the second out and Robinson tagged from third to make it 4-2. Arkansas closer Jay Sawatski struck out Eddy Martinez-Esteve to end the game and pick up his seventh save of the season.

Cheesman and Gibbs Chapman led FSU offensively with two hits apiece. Florida State out-hit Arkansas 9-6 in the loss, but left a total of 10 runners on base.
