Delph’s Slam Caps Noles’ Come-From-Behind Victory.
DJ Stewart goes 3-for-3 and Mike Compton strikes out six in 6.0 innings of work.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 12 Florida State (1-0) overcame a slow start Friday afternoon scoring a combined six runs over the final two innings as the Seminoles went on to defeat Oakland University (0-1) 7-3 in the 2015 season opener on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

DJ Stewart went 3-for-3 with a double and two walks, John Sansone picked up a key two-out, two-run double in the seventh and Josh Delph broke the game open in the eighth with his first career grand slam as the Seminoles captured their 17th straight victory on opening day.

Oakland took advantage of a sloppy defensive start by the Seminoles as three Florida State errors in the first led to a pair of runs for the Golden Grizzles and an early 2-0 advantage.

“After the first four or five hitters of the game, I thought I was watching an opening day,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “It was just one of those things that was typical of opening day games. You could see some nervous, but it was nice to have Mike Compton on the mound to keep everything from getting out of hand.

“But after that inning, it was a game that was very well played. I was just very pleased with the fact that we got it done. You have to tip your hat to Oakland who hasn’t had a chance to be outside. They really did a good job; they had us on the ropes. They took advantage of our mistakes.”

But the errors did little to rattle FSU starting pitcher Mike Compton as the redshirt junior did not allow a base runner past the first inning retiring the last 15 batters that he faced.

“His performance after that first inning was very impressive,” said Martin. “He really showed the experience factor tonight.”

“It was mainly fastball, slider, mixing in a few change-ups, but not many,” said Compton on what pitches were working for him tonight. “Just getting ahead early, making sure you get that first strike in there and also getting that first guy in the inning out was big too.”

Compton, making his first career start on opening day, worked 6.0 strong innings allowing two unearned runs on three hits, all coming in the first, while striking out six. The Branson, Mo., did not factor into the decision leaving after the sixth inning as he threw 81 pitches, 60 for strikes.

“We threw up some zeros and just got back to baseball,” added Delph. “I think a lot of people had some jitters. We fought back and just did what we do and that’s play a whole nine-inning game.”

With Compton keeping the Golden Grizzlies offense in-check, the Seminoles got into the Oakland bullpen and slowly chipped away at the lead. After Golden Grizzlies’ starter Jason Hager gave Oakland 4.0 shutout innings on Friday, the Seminoles finally broke through with a run in the fifth when Ben DeLuzio registered a one-out hit back up the middle off Connor Fannon. DeLuzio then swiped second and scored a batter later when Stewart roped an RBI double to left center cutting the deficit to 2-1.

The Seminoles took the lead for good in the seventh courtesy of Sansone’s two-out, two-run double. After Delph drew a one-out walk, Stewart was issued an intentional pass with two outs bringing up Sansone. The junior second baseman laced a 3-1 offering from Lucas Scocchia (0-1) down the line in left plating a pair to give the Noles a 3-2 lead.

“It was huge,” said Sansone on coming through with the key two-out hit. “I was looking to get that first hit on opening day and luckily it came with runners at first and second and a double down the line.”

Delph put the finishing touches on FSU’s come-from-behind victory in the eighth connecting on his first career grand slam. The senior right fielder found a great time to register just his second home run as a Seminole and first since March of 2013, taking the first offering from Oakland right hander Alex Mason out of the park and just inside the right field foul pole.

“You might say he fooled somebody on that AB (at-bat),” said Martin. “I’m sure they were thinking he’s not going to be aggressive early. I was just very, very happy for him (Delph).”

“I knew he had a nice tight slider and with the bases loaded I was looking for a good fastball to hit,” said Delph. “He threw one early and I got ahold of it. I have never hit one before (grand slam)…I was saving it.”

Delph finished the game 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored from the leadoff spot.

Bryant Holtmann (1-0) picked up the win as he worked a scoreless seventh inning. Dylan Silva struck out three of the four batters that he faced in the eighth, while Derek Vail worked the ninth for his first appearance as a Seminole.

Nine of FSU’s 10 hits on opening day came from a returning player. Sophomore JUCO transfer Quincy Nieporte registered the only hit by a newcomer on Friday with a double to left in his first at-bat in the second inning.

“You expect the experience to produce in an opening game like this,” added Martin. “What we all have to understand is that the freshmen, who are starters for us, have to get better every single game. Failure teaches success many, many lessons.”

Noles Pound Oakland 15-2.
Tallahassee native Boomer Biegalski picks up the win in his Florida State debut.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The offense came alive early on Saturday afternoon as No. 12 Florida State (2-0) scored 14 runs in the first four innings en route to a 15-2 victory over Oakland (0-2) on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Dylan Busby and Danny De La Calle each drove in four runs, while Boomer Biegalski went 5.0 strong innings to earn the win in his Florida State debut.

Busby and De La Calle became the first two Seminoles to record four or more RBI in the same game since Sherman Johnson (5) and Seth Miller performed the feat against Stanford in the 2012 NCAA Super Regional in Tallahassee.

Pitching in front of the hometown crowd, Biegalski (1-0) held the Golden Grizzlies’ offense to just two runs on seven hits as he walked one and struck out nine. After giving up a run in the top of the first, Biegalski received all the offensive help he would need on Saturday as the Seminoles pushed across seven runs in the bottom half of the inning and never looked back.

“I was very pleased with the way Biegalski handled his first start as a Seminole,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “Overall, it was a good day for us. I certainly didn’t expect this, after a game as close it was yesterday you certainly don’t expect this to happen. We got a couple of gifts there in the first inning and took advantage of them. It was a good win for us today.”

The Seminoles took advantage of a fielding error by Oakland shortstop Mike Brosseau in the bottom of the first as six of the seven runs scored off Grizzlies’ starter Collin Gee (0-1) were unearned, while five of those seven runs came with two outs in the inning.

After going hitless in his Seminole debut on Friday, Busby responded with a three-hit effort in game two to go along with four RBI and a run scored. The freshman third baseman registered an infield RBI single to third in the first, an RBI double to straight away center in the second and a two-run double down the line in left in the third.

De La Calle finished the afternoon 2-for-3 with two runs and four RBI. The senior catcher drove in two runs on a two-out single up the middle in the first and then hammered a two-run home run to left in the third for his first career home run as a Seminole.

Josh Delph went 2-for-2 with a pair of doubles and a walk in three plate appearances. The senior right fielder drew a walk in the first and then later in the inning blooped an RBI double down the line in left to cap FSU’s seven-run first. Ben DeLuzio, DJ Stewart and Hank Truluck all scored twice in the win.

Steven Wells, Jr. and Hayden Kelly registered their first career hits in their first career at-bats on Saturday. Wells, Jr. left the ballpark in his first at-bat in the fourth taking a 2-0 pitch off the top of the scoreboard in left. Kelly laced a double to right center in his first plate appearance in the seventh.

“We had some good at-bats,” added Martin. “I didn’t expect the number of home runs that we hit today but certainly they were timely, you might say. We got some solid play all around today.”

Freshman Drew Carlton also made his college debut on Saturday as the right hander allowed just one hit in two scoreless innings finishing with a walk and four strikeouts.

Jim Voyles worked a perfect eighth inning recording two groundouts and a strikeout, while freshman Taylor Folsom appeared for the first time in a Seminole uniform working a scoreless ninth inning to close out the win.

With the victory, the Seminoles have now won 34 consecutive series on opening weekend.

Three Oakland players had two hits apiece in the loss including Robby Enslen, Zach Sterry and Brosseau.

Johnson Shines As Noles Complete Sweep of Oakland.
Freshman right hander strikes out six in five shutout innings on Sunday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 12 Florida State (3-0) completed the sweep of Oakland (0-3) on Sunday afternoon with a 5-1 victory on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

“It was a totally different Oakland team that we faced today; no errors, pitched better, I tip my hat to Oakland,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “To do what they did (this weekend) and not having the opportunity to get outside, they were really, really impressive.”

Making his collegiate debut on Sunday, Cobi Johnson worked 5.0 shutout innings allowing just two hits and two walks while striking out six to earn his first career win. The freshman right hander retired the side in order in three of the five innings he worked finishing the afternoon with 75 pitches.

“Of course there is excitement but there is also some nervousness going through me,” said Johnson on making his first college start on Sunday. “But after that first inning, I felt like I settled down pretty good.”

With the Noles holding a 2-0 lead in the fourth and Oakland threatening with runners at second and third with two outs, Johnson calmly worked out of a jam getting Ian Yetsko swinging on strikes to retire the side.

“Cobi was certainly the secret so to speak,” said Martin. “He pitched five good innings, had a very good fastball…overcame that problem in the fourth and got himself into a very good rhythm. He showed great mound presence and was under control and put his team in a chance to win.”

Alec Byrd, Dylan Silva and Billy Strode combined to throw the final four innings to complete the sweep of the Golden Grizzlies. Byrd gave up an unearned run on two hits as he walked one and struck out one in 1.2 innings. Silva worked 1.1 shutout innings, while Billy Strode made his first appearance of the 2015 season and pitched a scoreless ninth inning.

“I was very proud of our young men in what they accomplished this weekend,” added Martin. “We know that every weekend from here out will be very, very tough, but I was very pleased with the way we played today and got it done.”

Eight Seminoles recorded at least one hit on Sunday as DJ Stewart and Gage West paced the offense with two hits apiece. Stewart registered two hits and two walks as he reached base in four of his five plate appearances. West finished with a pair of doubles. Darren Miller picked up his first career hit with a double to left in the sixth.

Florida State struck early in the second on a double by West and a walk to Taylor Walls. Both runners advanced 90 feet on a wild pitch with West scoring the first run of the game on an RBI groundout to short off the bat of Miller.

The Seminoles pushed their lead to 2-0 in the third on a two-out single to left by Dylan Busby. Stewart got things going with a two-out single to right, stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch. After John Sansone drew a walk, Busby brought home Stewart on his single to left.

FSU picked up a run in the fifth without collecting a hit. The Seminoles took advantage of three walks and a hit by pitch in the inning with Stewart scoring the lone run on a wild pitch to give the Garnet and Gold a three-run lead.

A fielding error by Florida State to open the seventh led to the only run of the game for the Golden Grizzlies. Mike Brosseau, who reached on the error, came around to score on an RBI single to left by Tyler Pagano.

The Seminoles added to their lead with two runs in the eighth for the final margin. Both Walls and Miller drew walks and came around to score on RBI singles by Danny De La Calle and Josh Delph.

Oakland’s Jake Morton took the loss on Sunday as the senior right hander allowed two runs on three hits in 2.2 innings of work. The Golden Grizzlies used seven different pitchers in Sunday’s series finale.

Noles Fall At Jacksonville.
The Seminoles suffer their first loss of the 2015 season.

JACKSONVILLE, FL – A late ninth inning rally was to no avail Wednesday night in Jacksonville as No. 12 Florida State (3-1) suffered its first loss of the 2015 season falling to the Dolphins (2-2) 5-3 inside John Sessions Stadium.

The Seminoles had the tying run at second base in the ninth but Nathan Disch struck out Josh Delph for the final out of the game to preserve the win and pick-up his first save of the season.

Trailing by three heading into the ninth, the Seminoles pushed a run across when Danny De La Calle smashed a bases loaded RBI single over the out stretched glove of JU left fielder Austin Hays. With the base runners not sure if Hays would come up with the catch, the runners advanced just one base resulting in a run down with De La Calle being thrown at first.

“It was just a great fight that we put up (in the ninth),” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “Unfortunately things did not go our way. We have to throw this one away and be ready to go this weekend.”

The Seminoles, who finished the game with just four hits, registered two in the ninth including De La Calle’s RBI single and an infield single by Taylor Walls for his first collegiate hit. The loss Wednesday night snapped Florida State’s nine-game win streak in the series as it marked Jacksonville’s first win over FSU since April 14, 2010.

“You have to credit Jacksonville,” added Martin. “They did a good job; we made some mistakes that were unfortunate but it’s over with and we have to put our attention to a very, very good Georgia team.”

Jacksonville starter Jeff Tanner (1-0) was the story on Wednesday as the redshirt junior right hander worked 5.0 strong innings giving up just two runs on two hits as he walked two and struck out a career-high eight batters.

“He really did a nice job tonight,” said Martin. “For a guy that hasn’t played in a long time he was very impressive tonight.”

Making just his second appearance since missing the entire 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery, Tanner kept the Seminole bats at bay as seven of his eight strikeouts were recorded in the first three innings. The eight strikeouts eclipsed Tanner’s previous high of four set on three separate occasions in 2013.

The JU bullpen was equally impressive as three relievers combined for seven more strikeouts. Spencer Stockton worked the sixth and seventh innings striking out five of the seven batters that he faced. In all, four Jacksonville pitchers combined to register 15 strikeouts on the evening.

Bryant Holtmann (1-1), making his first start of the year, suffered the loss as the senior southpaw allowed three runs, two earned, on four hits in 3.0 plus innings of work.

Florida State used five pitchers on the night. Drew Carlton followed Holtmann and worked 3.0 innings allowing an unearned run on one hit as he finished with four strikeouts. Derek Vail, Alec Byrd and Jim Voyles all saw action Wednesday night. Voyles worked a perfect eighth inning retiring the side in order on a pair of groundouts and a strikeout.

Jacksonville grabbed the early lead on Wednesday afternoon taking advantage of a Seminole error to plate a run in the first. Holtmann issued walks to the first two Dolphin hitters that he faced before getting Connor Marabell to hit a groundball right back to the mound. But an errant throw by the Seminole southpaw over to the bag at second brought home Cameron Gibson for the first run of the ballgame.

It wasn’t until the top of the fourth when the Seminoles recorded their first hit of the afternoon as DJ Stewart led off the inning with a double to the gap in right center. The junior outfielder would score three batters later to tie the game at 1-1 on a sac fly to the warning track in left by Quincy Nieporte for his first RBI as a Seminole.

The tie was short lived as the Dolphins answered with a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning to retake the lead at 3-1. JU recorded three straight hits off Holtmann to open the inning with the third hit, a two-run double down the line in left by former Seminole JJ Gould, giving Jacksonville a two-run cushion.

Holtmann would exit after the hit by Gould coming out of the game due to a blister on his throwing hand. Carlton came in and got the Seminoles out of further danger retiring the side in order with three consecutive groundouts to end the inning.

Florida State drew within one of the JU lead in the fifth plating a run on its second sac-fly of the afternoon. Walls drew a walk off Tanner to open the inning and moved to third on a single to left center by De La Calle. Delph followed with a sac-fly to left to score Walls and cut the deficit to 3-2.

Jacksonville got the run back in the bottom half of the inning taking advantage of FSU’s second error of the game. Gibson led off the inning with a double to left off Carlton, moved to third on a groundout to second by Marabell and scored when Sansone could not squeeze a short pop fly over his shoulder off the bat of Hays.

The Dolphins pushed their lead to 5-2 with a run in the seventh off Vail but it could have been more if it wasn’t for a pair of nice defensive plays from the left side of the infield. With the bases loaded and a run already in, Alec Byrd got Hays to hit a groundball to short that Walls turned into a double play with an out at home and then to first. Dylan Busby followed with a nice back handed play at third and then made a strong throw to first to get Dillard for the third out of the inning.

Noles Down Dawgs in Crazy Opening Game.
John Sansone ties a career-high with four RBI.

ATHENS, GA – In a game that featured some back-and-forth baseball, a little snow and a pick-off at first to close things out, No. 12 Florida State (4-1) took game one of the opening series with a 7-5 victory over Georgia (3-1) on a frigid Friday evening on Foley Field.

John Sansone tied a career-high with four RBI as his two-out, two-run double in the seventh gave the Seminoles the lead for good. Danny De La Calle added two hits for the second straight game and Quincy Nieporte drove in a pair of runs as the Seminoles recorded their fourth straight victory over Georgia with the win on Friday.

“It was very gratifying to see everyone keep their poise,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “We did a lot of things right. We fell behind by two runs after being ahead by three and still managed to win the ballgame. That’s a credit to our young men, the way they kept their poise, kept battling, getting good at-bats and of course some big hits there in the seventh that pulled us through.”

The Bulldogs out hit the Seminoles 11-6 on the night as the Dawgs stranded 13 runners on base. Georgia loaded the bases with two outs in the bottom of the ninth but a pick-off at first by De La Calle sealed the victory for the Noles. After Billy Strode delivered a first pitch ball to Stephen Wrenn, De La Calle fired a bullet down to Darren Miller at first to pick-off Brandon Stephens for the final out of the game.

“I just felt like it was the perfect time to call the play,” said De La Calle. “I have confidence in Darren at first; he’s got my back to make the play. During the mound visit by Eleven, I go to Darren, ‘first pitch here we are going.’ It was cool to see that he had the trust in me to get that play done. It just felt like the right moment; glad to do it for the team and get the win.”

“Danny comes through with a big pick-off, it was something I didn’t know he had on, nobody on the bench knew he had put it on, but it’s just a credit to him,” said Martin.

The Seminoles ran out to a 4-1 lead taking advantage of a pair of Robert Tyler throwing errors to plate a pair of runs and then a two-run home run by Sansone in the sixth only to see Georgia score four runs in the bottom of the sixth to grab their first lead of the night.

“This just shows our resiliency, our perseverance to come together like that,” said Sansone. “It’s great (to get a win), on the road, you can’t beat it.”

Florida State responded with three runs in the seventh to take the lead for good. Nieporte tied the game with a clutch two-out single through the left side and Sansone followed with a two-run double to the gap in right center for what ended up being the final margin.

“The base hit by Nieporte was really, really impressive,” said Martin. “That was a battling at-bat where he ended up getting that base hit to left field. Soni’s hit to right center was huge. That’s what we have to get to be successful.”

Taylor Folsom (1-0) got the final out in the sixth to earn his first career victory. Drew Carlton pitched a scoreless seventh and eighth innings and Strode worked the ninth to earn his second career save and first in 2015.

Sean McLaughlin (0-1) suffered the loss for Georgia as the junior right hander gave up three runs on three hits as he walked three in 1.1 innings of work.

FSU starter Mike Compton did not factor into the decision as the redshirt junior right hander worked 4.0 plus innings allowing just one run on seven hits while finishing with five strikeouts.

“Mike did pitch very well,” added Martin. “He has had two outings in which he has pitched very well. He has showed great composure through his first two outings.”

Georgia loaded the bases in the second with no outs and could not manufacture a run. Compton got Keegan McGovern to hit a groundball back to the mound leading to a double play – home to first. He then got Nick King looking at a called third strike to retire the side.

After a Zach Bowers solo home run in the fourth, the Bulldogs put together a little two-out rally as Trevor Kieboom drew a walk and moved to third as McGovern laced a double down the line in left. But Compton once again got King to record the final out, this time swinging on strikes to end the threat.

The two teams exchanged a run in the fourth as light snow flurries began to fall on Foley Field. The Seminoles got their first run of the game thanks to a Georgia error and a perfectly executed safety squeeze.

Taylor Walls opened the inning with a single through the right side and moved to second on a groundout by DJ Stewart. Walls then scampered to third courtesy of a throwing error by the UGA starting pitcher on a failed pickoff attempt. On the very next pitch, Nieporte laid down a beautiful bunt to the right side scoring Walls and giving the Noles a 1-0 lead.

Georgia tied the game at one in the bottom half of the inning thanks to a solo home run by Bowers. The Bulldog catcher took a 1-2 pitch from Compton and deposited the ball over the wall in left for his second round tripper of the season.

Florida State regained the lead in top of the fifth on an RBI single by De La Calle. The Seminoles once again took advantage of another throwing error by Tyler to bring home their second run of the night. Ben DeLuzio drew a one-out walk, advanced to second after a throwing error by the Bulldog starting pitcher and scored on a single through the left side by De La Calle to give FSU a 2-1 lead.

The Bulldogs threatened in the bottom half of the fifth but could not plate a run as Dylan Silva kept FSU’s one-run lead intact. Wrenn and Skyler Weber registered back-to-back singles to open the inning putting runners at the corners and chasing Compton from the game after 4.0 plus innings of work. Silva entered and recorded consecutive strikeouts before issuing a two-out walk to Bowers. The Seminole southpaw then got Daniel Nichols to ground back to the mound on the first offering to leave the bases loaded.

Florida State extended its lead to three with one swing of the bat by Sansone in the sixth. After Stewart drew a walk to open the frame, Sansone deposited a hanging breaking ball on a 2-2 pitch from Tyler over the fence in left for his first home run of the season and a 4-1 Seminole lead.

The lead was short lived as the Bulldogs scored four runs off Silva in the bottom of the sixth to grab their first lead of the game at 5-4. Georgia registered just two hits in the inning while taking advantage of four walks. Three of the four walks resulted in runs as Wrenn came through with a two-run single to right and Walsh gave UGA its first lead of the night with a two-run double to center. Folsom got the Noles out of further trouble getting Nichols to groundout to first to close the sixth.

The Noles answered right back with three runs in the top of the seventh to regain the lead at 7-5. All three runs came with two outs off McLaughlin as Nieporte came through with a single through the left side scoring Walls from second and Sansone followed with a two-run double to the gap in right center. Walls and Stewart extended the inning drawing a pair of two-out walks.

FSU Drops Game One of Doubleheader to UGA 4-1.
Boomer Biegalski goes 7.0 innings, strikes out four, in suffering his first loss of the season.

ATHENS, GA – No. 12 Florida State (4-2) dropped game one Saturday’s doubleheader falling 4-1 to Georgia (4-1) under cold overcast skies on Foley Field.

The Seminoles could not figure out Bulldog starting pitcher Ryan Lawlor (2-0) who held Florida State to just one run on four hits over 6.0 innings as he finished the outing tying a career-high with 10 strikeouts.

“You have to credit the University of Georgia, they did a great job,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “Lawlor really gave them 6.0 strong innings and really showed a lot of resolve after getting hit on a line drive by Quincy Nieporte (in the fourth). He really just showed his toughness today.”

Bo Tucker and Jared Cheek shut the door on the Seminoles over the final three innings as Florida State managed just five hits on the afternoon. Tucker allowed just one hit in two scoreless innings while striking out two. Cheek pitched a perfect ninth inning to pick-up his first save of the season.

Florida State starting pitcher Boomer Biegalski (1-1) was equally impressive on Saturday despite suffering the loss as the sophomore right hander went 7.0 innings. The only hiccup for Biegalski came over a five-batter stretch in the fourth inning where Georgia put together three straight hits and drew back-to-back walks. It was enough to generate three runs as the Bulldogs never looked back.

Skyler Weber led off the inning with a single up the middle and scored on Zack Bowers’ RBI double down the line in left. Jared Walsh followed with a towering, two-run shot to right for his first home run of the season to give the Bulldogs a 3-0 advantage.

After the home run, Biegalski issued back-to-back walks but then retired the final 11 batters that he faced before exiting the game after the seventh inning.

“Boomer Biegalski pitched a very, very good ballgame,” added Martin. “You go 7.0 innings on the road, that’s a big lift for your team. He saved our bullpen; very proud of that young man. He has pitched extremely well in two outings for us.”

Georgia added a run in the eighth as Walsh drove in his third run of the game with a run scoring double down the line in right.

The only Seminole run of the afternoon came in the fifth on a Danny De La Calle sac-fly to center. Ben DeLuzio recorded a one-out single to center for his second hit of the ballgame. He moved to third on a stinging double that short hoped the wall in left center by Darren Miller and scored a batter later on De La Calle’s sac-fly to center.

The Seminoles threatened in the sixth putting two on with one out. Taylor Walls led off the inning with a single to right and moved to second when Quincy Nieporte drew a walk. But Lawlor got out of the jam recording a strikeout and fly out to center to keep Georgia’s lead at 3-1.

Nieporte came within a few feet of tying the ballgame in the eighth with one swing of the bat. DJ Stewart kept the inning alive with an infield single to short. Nieporte then stepped in and hit a fly ball to the warning track in left for the final out of the inning.

FSU Can’t Avoid Doubleheader Sweep At Georgia.
Noles return to Tallahassee for a 14-game home stand beginning Tuesday, Feb. 24.

ATHENS, GA – No. 12 Florida State (4-3) could not build off a first inning home run by DJ Stewart as the Seminoles dropped game two of Saturday’s doubleheader falling 10-5 to Georgia (4-1) on Foley Field.

The Bulldogs completed Saturday’s doubleheader sweep handing Florida State its first non-conference regular season series loss on the road since the Noles dropped three straight at Hawaii in 2005. It also marked the first time that FSU suffered a pair of losses in Athens since the 2006 NCAA Regional.

“We were faced with something that we haven’t been faced with in the number of young guys that we had playing on the road,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “It was a challenge; they learned a lot from it. We will take this lesson and try and get better.”

The Seminoles had their chances to add to their early lead but left six runners stranded through the first four innings. FSU drew within two of Georgia’s lead courtesy of a three-run seventh, but the Bulldogs squashed any thoughts of a Florida State comeback adding two runs in the bottom of the seventh and one more in the eighth for the final margin.

“Some of the mental things we did tonight (were a little disappointing),” added Martin. “I don’t believe in any excuses but we did something that I was shaking my head about but that’s the way it goes. We are an inexperienced team that is going to get better.”

Cobi Johnson (1-1) suffered his first loss of the season as he allowed six runs, five earned, on seven hits in 4.0 plus innings of work. The Holiday, Fla., native finished his second career outing with two walks and three strikeouts.

Georgia’s David Sosebee (2-0) shook off a shaky start to earn his second win of the year. The Bulldog right hander finished his outing allowing two runs on five hits as he walked four and struck out eight.

Stewart and John Sansone paced the Seminole offense in game two of the double dip with two hits and two RBI apiece. Stewart and Taylor Walls both scored twice in the loss.

Trevor Kieboom and Keegan McGovern paced the Bulldogs 13-hit attack with three hits each. McGovern tallied three RBI, while Kieboom scored three runs.

Florida State wasted no time cracking the scoreboard in game two of the double header as Stewart went yard for his first home run of the season in the top of the first. Following a one-out hit to left center by Walls, Stewart took a 1-1 pitch from Sosebee out of the park to right center to give the Noles an early two-run lead.

The Bulldogs cut the deficit in half with a little long ball of their own in the bottom of the second. After Johnson recorded two quick outs to start the inning, Kieboom took a 3-1 pitch from the freshman right hander out of the park to left for his first home of the year.

Georgia put a three spot up in the fourth to grab a 4-2 lead. McGovern had the big hit of the inning lacing a two-run double just inside the bag at first. He later scored on a passed ball to give the Bulldogs a two-run cushion.

UGA added to its lead in the fifth with three more runs to take a commanding 7-2 advantage. The Bulldogs got an RBI single from Mike Bell chasing Johnson from the game. Alec Byrd came on and gave up an RBI single to right to McGovern and then a bases loaded walk to Stephen Wrenn.

The Noles cut the deficit to 7-5 in the seventh taking advantage of a Bulldog throwing error that led to three unearned runs off reliever Jared Walsh. With the bases loaded, Quincy Nieporte brought home the first run on a sac-fly to right. Sansone followed with a looping double just inside the foul line in right scoring Walls and Stewart.

Georgia pushed two across in the bottom of the seventh to grab a 9-5 lead. The Bulldogs manufactured both runs without collecting a hit taking advantage of three walks and a pair of fielder’s choice groundballs. The Seminoles used three pitchers in the inning as both runs were charged to Alex Deise. Jim Voyles faced a batter and Taylor Folsom came on to record the final two outs in the seventh.

Deise finished his first outing in a Seminole uniform allowing two runs on a hit as he walked one and struck out two in 1.1 innings of work.

Ed Voyles made his college debut on Saturday night recording the final two outs in the bottom of the eighth including a strikeout of Zack Bowers to retire the side.

Youth Movement Helps 'Noles Exact Revenge Against Jacksonville.
Seminole freshmen collected 10 of the 11 hits in the win.

By: Jack Shields, Sports Info Assistant

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 16 Florida State (5-3) was able to avoid a second mid-week upset to Jacksonville (5-3) in less than a week, winning 10-7 Tuesday night on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Despite being outhit 16-11, the Seminoles used six extra-base hits to provide a spark on a rainy and cold night. Ten of FSU’s 11 hits came from freshmen, including three apiece from Taylor Walls and Darren Miller. Miller added his first career home run in the sixth.

“We had a lot of young men that played very well under not the ideal conditions but it was fun to continue to watch the maturation process of our young guys,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “It was a game that we relied on our pitching and they did a great job. JU is very good offensive club. They got 16 hits tonight but our guys kept their poise and made pitches when they had to.”

“As young guys, it definitely builds confidence,” said Walls. “For me and Darren, I think we had more hits tonight than we had all season. I know it will build a lot of confidence in us and builds confidence in our teammates to have faith in us when we come up to the plate.”

Steven Wells, Jr. and Dylan Busby contributed with two hits each as both freshmen drove in a pair of runs. Wells, Jr., made his first career start in right Tuesday night. Danny De La Calle registered the only other hit from a non-freshman player with a double in the sixth.

“If you look at the numbers and see that 10 of our 11 hits were by freshmen that’s really exciting,” added Martin. “(Our) Guys got a long way to go; JU knows how to pitch, they are a good club. We don’t play them anymore and that’s ok. I tip my hat to them, they’ve done very well.”

“It was a good time for us to break loose a little bit,” added Miller. “Georgia was cold, it was our first away trip, I mean it snowed. I’m from Key West, you don’t see snow. It was good for us; it just builds confidence in all of us. I think once we get going, we will be alright.”

Dylan Silva (1-0) picked up the win with 1.2 innings of relief work, helping the Seminoles get out of a jam in the top of the sixth striking out back-to-back hitters with the bases loaded. He finished his outing with two hits, one walk and four strikeouts.

Starter Bryant Holtmann allowed nine hits and four earned runs in 4.0 plus innings of work in earning the no decision. He was replaced by Drew Carlton, who allowed two runs on two hits in 1.1 innings.

Jim Voyles, Alec Byrd and Billy Strode finished the final two innings of the game, combing for three hits and one run allowed while striking out five.

Jacksonville starter Jeff Tanner pitched 3.1 innings and allowed four earned runs on four hits. Jacksonville’s relievers combined to pitch 4.2 innings, allowing seven hits and five runs. Reliever Josh Baker (0-2) suffered the loss after giving up three runs on three hits.

Jacksonville started things off with a one-out double to the wall in right-center, but Holtmann was able to rebound with subsequent groundouts to strand the base runner.

Walls, making his first start in the lead-off spot, drew a walk to open the bottom half of the first. Hayden Kelly then followed with a two-out walk as both runners advanced a base on a balk charged to Tanner. Busby then ripped a shot past JU third baseman Drew Luther to bring the runners home before Tanner retired the side.

A quick 1-2-3 inning from Holtmann in the top half of the second was followed by a quick inning from Tanner, which included an acrobatic catch in left field to rob Ben DeLuzio of a leadoff hit.

The top half of the third would see Holtmann force three groundouts and allow one walk. Walls then led off the bottom half with a double through the gap in right-center. After a slow roller to third from DJ Stewart forced Walls to stay at second, a fly out from John Sansone allowed Walls to advance to third. Tanner would come up big as he struck out Kelly to end the inning.

Holtmann would allow a single up the middle with one out in the top of the fourth, followed by a double past Busby at third to put two runners in scoring position. After a strikeout looking for the second out, Luther delivered an RBI single through the left. However, a spectacular throw by Stewart from left to De La Calle at the plate was in plenty of time to get Dylan Dillard for the final out of the inning to keep the score at 2-1 in favor of FSU.

The Seminoles put two on with one-out in the fourth on a double to left by Miller and a hit-by-pitch to DeLuzio. Wells, Jr. then ripped an RBI double to the corner in right that put runners at second and third, forcing Jacksonville to replace Tanner on the mound. Reliever Josh Baker allowed a sac-bunt from De La Calle to push the lead to 4-1 before getting Walls swinging on strikes to end the fourth.

The Dolphins would open the fifth with an infield single, followed by a double from Parker Perez to put runners in scoring position. A bouncing two-RBI single over the head of Miller would put the Dolphins within one run. Holtmann’s outing would come to an end after allowing back-to-back singles to load the bases with nobody out. Carlton was able to minimize the damage by allowing a sac-fly and forcing a double play to leave the score tied at 4-4.

Carlton opened the top of the sixth with a walk, with the runner stealing second shortly thereafter. A throwing error at first on a sac-bunt attempt by Luther would allow Jacksonville to take the lead at 5-4. The Dolphins added one more in the inning on a single to center by Angelo Amendolare before Silva closed the door with back-to-back strikeouts.

The bottom of the sixth opened with the Seminoles trailing 6-4, but Dylan Busby would start things on a positive note with a double down the left field line. Darren Miller would keep the momentum going with his first career homer off the scoreboard in left to tie the game at 6-6. Wells, Jr. would reach base on an infield single with one out, forcing a Jacksonville pitching change.

Dolphin reliever Spencer Stockton allowed De La Calle to rip a double down the left field line, which was FSU’s sixth extra-base hit in as many innings. Walls would then drive the runner in from third to give FSU the lead. After issuing an intentional walk to Stewart to load the bases, Sansone was hit by a pitch to bring another runner home, giving FSU an 8-6 lead.

After getting consecutive outs to open the seventh, Silva allowed a hit and a walk to put runners on first and second. However, he was able to get out of the jam by striking out Parker Perez to end the inning.

Drawing a hit-by-pitch, Busby would bring another positive start to a half-inning. Miller would follow up with a single to continue his impressive night. After a fielder’s choice put runners on the corners with one out, DeLuzio stole second putting two runners in scoring position. A sacrifice-bunt RBI from Wells, Jr. extended the lead to 9-6.

The Dolphins drew within two of the lead taking advantage of a Seminole error to plate a run in the top of the eighth. After a double from Amendolare put runners at second and third, Byrd entered the game and gave up an RBI single to right by Connor Marabell. But Byrd avoided further damage collecting back-to-back strikeouts and fly out to keep FSU’s lead at 9-7.

Walls opened up the half-inning with his third hit of the night on an infield single and Stewart followed with his second walk of the game. Sansone was then hit by a pitch for the second time of the night to load the bases with nobody out. A throwing error from catcher Garret Ruckel following a foul out to right off the bat of Busby brought Walls home for FSU’s 10th run of the game.

Strode pitched a scoreless ninth inning striking out three of the four batters that he faced to earn his second save of the season.

Byrd, Stewart Pace Noles Past UNC Wilmington.
The Seminoles hand the Seahawks their first loss of the season with 4-3 victory.

By Jack Shields, FSU Sports Info Assistant

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Florida State’s Alec Byrd retired his first 12 batters in relief of starter Mike Compton and outfielder DJ Stewart hit a solo shot in the seventh inning that proved to be the game-winner as the 16th-ranked Seminoles (6-3) handed UNC Wilmington (6-1) its first loss of the season with a 4-3 victory Friday afternoon on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Byrd (1-0), who began his evening with a clutch strikeout to get out of a bases-loaded jam in the top of fourth, earned his first victory of the season with a 4.1-inning effort, the longest of his career. He was able to keep the Seahawk batters at-bay on a night in which UNCW out hit Florida State 7-3.

The only hit allowed by the sophomore southpaw came in the eighth inning when Corey Dick hit a line shot off the fence in right field. Dick tried to stretch the hit into a double but was thrown out at second on a great throw from Josh Delph to Taylor Walls covering the bag. Byrd finished with a career-high eight strikeouts.

“Hard to believe that he could come in and strike out eight in 4.1 innings,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “His outing was very, very impressive. He is starting to feel comfortable out there.”

“I was just trying to throw strikes, keep the game close and give my team a chance to win,” added Byrd. “I knew I had to eat up some innings but I didn’t expect that to happen out there.”

Compton would not factor into decision on Friday night working 3.2 innings. He allowed five hits and three runs, two of which were earned, as he walked two and struck out six.

Billy Strode worked a scoreless ninth for this third save in as many chances. The senior lefty allowed a hit and a walk and struck out two.

“I was very pleased with Byrdie,” added Martin. “I thought he pitched very well. Michael deserved better. It’s a shame that he had to leave in that situation (in the fourth) but we needed to get a lefty in there. Billy came in and did a great job for us. It was just one of those games that you see every night in the big leagues. Somebody gets the big hit; fortunately tonight DJ got the big hit for us.”

The trio of Seminole pitchers combined to strikeout 16 Seahawk batters on the night.

FSU got off to a quick start in game one of the series as freshman Dylan Busby brought two runs home on a two-out single down the right field line with the bases loaded in the bottom half of the first. The play was preceded by a double from fellow freshman Darren Miller and a walk to Stewart.

UNC Wilmington responded in the top of the second with two runs of its own on a Joe Bertone sacrifice fly and an RBI infield single by Terence Connelly. Catcher Danny De La Calle ended the half-inning by picking off Connelly at second.

FSU regained the lead in the bottom half of the second taking advantage of a Seahawk error to plate a run. Walls drew a two-out walk and moved to second on a balk. With Miller at the plate, Walls advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on a fielding error by Connelly at third as he could not handle the throw from catcher Gavin Stupienski following the wild pitch.

The lead was short lived as the Seahawks responded with a run in the top of the third to tie the game at 3-3. Steven Linkous reached on a one-out throwing error at short, moved to second on a walk to Zach Shields and scored two batters later on an RBI single through the right side by Stupienski.

The Seminoles loaded the bases in the bottom half of the inning on a pair of walks and a fielding error but Seahawk starter Nick Monroe got out of the jam getting De La Calle to ground into an inning ending double play.

UNCW looked to take its first lead of the game in the fourth loading the bases with two outs off Compton. But Byrd returned the favor by getting the Noles out of the jam to keep the game knotted at 3-3. Byrd came in and was able to get Shields looking at a called third strike to retire the side.

“Eleven calls it ‘fun time,’” said Byrd. “We prep for that all fall and all spring. I felt confident that I could do that job.”

Stewart broke the deadlock in the bottom of the seventh with one swing of the bat. The junior from Yulee, Fla., took the first offering from reliever Austin Magestro (1-1) to open the seventh over the right field fence for his second home run of the season.

“It was a first pitch fastball,” said Stewart. “I felt like the at-bat before I was trying to do too much. I had some good swings but I was missing the ball. I was just trying to let my hands work and the ball went out.”

It also marked just the first hit by the Seminoles since recording a pair of hits in the bottom of the first.

“This game will drive you crazy if you let it,” added Martin. “For me to say I’m worried about our offense, I can’t say all is well but I can say we are getting the young guys acclimated. We did some things that were very positive. They had a young man that started for them that walked eight guys (in 4.2 innings). I give Meat (Mike Martin, Jr.) and our ball club all the credit for being disciplined and not trying to be the hero.”

The home run by Stewart would hold up as Byrd and Strode pitched the eighth and ninth innings, respectively, to keep Florida State undefeated at home in 2015. The win was FSU’s fourth straight over the Seahawks and first since the two schools last met in 1974.

Noles’ Eighth Inning Rally Clips Seahawks.
The Seminoles score three runs in the bottom of the eighth to secure a 5-3 victory.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 16 Florida State (7-3) rallied from a late inning deficit scoring three runs in the bottom of the eighth as the Seminoles handed UNC Wilmington (6-2) its second straight loss with a 5-3 victory on a cold and windy Saturday afternoon on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

“That was a big win for us, there are no two ways about it,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “We didn’t play extremely well; made some mistakes, gave them extra outs and they took advantage of it.

“That’s a good ball club. We got excellent pitching throughout. I thought Boomer pitched well. I thought Dylan pitched well and of course Billy pitched very, very well.”

Trailing 3-2 entering the eighth, Josh Delph led things off when he was hit by a pitch from UNCW closer Jordan Ramsey (0-1). He advanced to second when Ben DeLuzio reached on a bunt single and then took third on the play as no one was covering the bag. He scored a batter later when pinch hitter Gage West blooped an RBI single to short right. DeLuzio then gave the Noles the lead for good scoring from third on a passed ball.

“Josh did a great job of leading off that inning,” added Martin. “We were very fortunate that what happened happened (on the bunt by DeLuzio that popped in the air and dropped safely). It was heads up base running by Delph to take third with no one covering the base. Gage West has a great at-bat. He knows what he is trying to do and he did it.”

The Noles added one more in the inning when West scored following a single by Darren Miller and an errant throw by UNC Wilmington catcher Gavin Stupienski.

Billy Strode shut the door on any comeback by the Seahawks in the ninth as the Seminole closer struck out the side for his fourth save in as many chances.

“A win against a quality team like that, I assure you they are going to cause a lot of problems in their league,” said Martin. “Having beat Wake Forest (twice), they are going to cause a lot of problems for teams they play.”

Dylan Silva (2-0) picked up the win throwing 1.1 scoreless innings in relief. The junior southpaw allowed a hit and a walk while striking out two.

John Sansone and DeLuzio finished with two hits apiece as the Seminoles out hit the Seahawks 7-5 on Saturday. Terence Connelly paced the UNCW offense with two hits, both doubles, and two runs scored.

Making his third start of the season and second in front of the hometown crowd, Boomer Biegalski struck out seven in 6.2 innings. The sophomore right hander gave up three runs, two earned, on four hits as he walked two. Biegalski has worked at least 5.0 innings in all three of his starts this year.

The Seahawks struck early with a run in the first two innings to take a 2-0 lead. UNCW took advantage of a pair of walks and a wild pitch off Biegalski to plate the game’s first run in the top of the first. Steven Linkous opened the game with an infield chopper over the pitcher’s mound and scored on a wild pitch with the bases loaded.

UNCW added to its lead in the second courtesy of a Seminole fielding error. Connelly opened the inning with a double down the line in right, moved to third on a sac-bunt and scored on the error at second to give the Seahawks a two-run advantage.

After squandering several opportunities to crack the scoreboard during the early goings on Saturday, the Seminoles pushed their first two runs across thanks to one swing of the bat by Sansone in the bottom of the fifth. The junior second baseman took the first pitch from UNCW starter Ryan Foster out of the park to left for a two-run shot tying the ballgame at 2-2. Miller, who scored on the home run, opened the inning drawing a four-pitch walk.

Biegalski settled down after the fielding error in the second retiring the next 14 Seahawk batters that he faced. Connelly broke the streak with a double down the line in left for his second hit of the game. He would score two batters later on an RBI single back up the middle by Robbie Thorburn as UNCW retook the lead at 3-2.

“That was impressive,” added Martin on the bounce back by Biegalski. “To see him struggle a little bit in the first inning then turn around and get out of a very, very tough jam was huge. Good pitching, good poise, things that you got to have to be successful.”

FSU Outlasts UNC Wilmington, Sweeps Series.
Offense and clutch pitching from the bullpen lead Seminoles to a 9-8 victory.

By: Jack Shields, FSU Sports Information Assistant

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 16 Florida State (8-3) amassed 11 hits, and relief efforts from Taylor Folsom, Bryant Holtmann and Billy Strode allowed the Seminoles to hold off UNC Wilmington (6-3) for a 9-8 victory and a series sweep Sunday afternoon on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Taylor Walls and Gage West contributed with three hits each and DJ Stewart added a two-run homer to pace the Seminole offense. West and Josh Delph were both perfect at the plate, hitting 3-for-3 and 2-for-2, respectively. West registered three singles and a pair of walks, while Delph walked, was hit by a pitch and reached on two bunt singles.

Folsom (2-0) earned the victory, allowing two hits and an unearned run in 2.0 innings of work. UNCW reliever Cory Gantz (1-1) was credited with the loss.

Holtmann came in relief of Folsom in the fifth and worked 3.2 innings. The senior southpaw gave up a run on three hits as he struck out two and did not give up a walk.

Two of those three hits came with one out in the ninth leading to a pitching change for the Noles. Strode gave up an RBI single to left to the first batter he faced before registering back-to-back strikeouts to preserve the win. The save was Strode’s third in as many games this weekend and fifth of the season.

“He went out there and really pitched well,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said on the performance of Holtmann. “I wanted him to finish it and to give Billy the day off, but Billy had just as much zip on the ball as he did in the other two outings (this weekend). He pitched well and picked up another save.

“We had to do something to change the momentum and our bullpen did the job this afternoon. Don’t forget the job that Taylor Folsom did. He gave up two hits in 2.0 innings and then got drilled in the leg with a ball and didn’t want to come out of the ball game.”

Stewart began the scoring in the bottom of the first with a deep two-run shot to left-center, his second of the series and third of the season. FSU nearly added to the lead with the bases loaded and two outs, but UNCW starter Evan Phillips was able to end the inning with a strikeout.

The Seahawks responded in the second with a solo homer over the right field fence from Gavin Stupienski on a 3-2 offering from Florida State starter Cobi Johnson. Corey Dick followed with a double to left center, and would later score from third on a wild pitch to tie the game. Kennard McDowell would then give the Seahawks the lead at 3-2 with an RBI double off the right field fence to plate Chris Gaffney, who drew a walk.

UNCW added to the lead in the third with a two-out, two-run double into the gap in right-center from Luke Dunlap. An RBI single up the middle from Gaffney on the next at-bat would put the score at 6-2 in favor of the Seahawks and end the afternoon for Johnson.

Johnson would not factor into Sunday’s decision as the freshman right hander gave up six runs on six hits in 2.2 innings as he walked two and struck out six.

A big inning would allow the Seminoles to retake the lead in the bottom half of the third. Five runs would score, aided by RBI’s from Walls, Ben DeLuzio, Danny De La Calle and Darren Miller, bringing the score to 7-6. Eleven batters came to the plate in the inning, which included doubles by Miller and Hank Truluck.

“It’s in the determination of our young men, the fight that they showed, the ability to not try and do too much,” added Martin on his team erasing a four-run deficit on Sunday. “I think that’s the biggest deficit that we have faced this weekend which was four and our guys did a good job of staying poised.”

The Seminoles would add to their lead in the fourth when a wild pitch from reliever Justin Crump brought West home. FSU was then able to load the bases with two outs before another wild pitch would plate De La Calle and extend the lead to 9-6.

Stupienski added a run for the Seahawks in the fifth, reaching home on an errant throw from short, one of five errors the Seminoles would commit on Sunday.

In the top of the ninth, Dunlap was able to rip a single down the left field line to bring the Seahawks within a run with one out. However, Strode was able to strike out consecutive batters looking to leave the tying run stranded at second base and complete the series sweep.

“You had two ball clubs getting after it today,” said Martin. “I have to tip my hat to them; they are a very aggressive, well coached team. Our ball club did a lot of things that we needed to do but let’s be honest; we aren’t going to beat people with five errors. It’s something that happens when you have a lot of young guys but it’s something that we must improve on. I am very, very pleased that those guys were not satisfied by winning two ball games. It’s hard to win three ball games.”

FSU Offense Explodes in Win Over USF.
The Seminoles plate 24 runs, their most since 2009.

By Jack Shields, FSU Sports Information Assistant

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 19 Florida State (9-3) used an offensive surge to take down in-state rival USF (6-5-1), winning 24-1 Tuesday afternoon on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

The 24 runs marked the highest scoring output for the Seminoles since the 2009 NCAA Regional against Ohio State, a game in which FSU scored 37 runs. It was the widest margin of victory in the series with USF since April 26, 1980, when FSU won 17-0 in Tallahassee. FSU scored the most runs in the series since scoring 18 on March 14, 2000.

“I did not see that coming but it was a ball game that we played extremely well,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “I can’t tell you what it means to see a zero in that last column, that’s the one that I look at first and we did a good job. Our young men played the game right, they played the game hard; maybe we deserved a game like this, we’ve played close games all year long. But we have to be ready to go tomorrow.”

FSU was led by DJ Stewart, who went 2-for-2 with two home runs, three RBI, three runs scored and a walk. FSU also received notable contributions from John Sansone (one home run and four RBI), Hank Truluck (four RBI, two doubles) and Gage West (3 RBI).

Not to be outdone by the offense, the pitching staff gave up only one run for the third straight time in the series against USF. Freshman Drew Carlton (1-0) got the win, pitching five innings and allowing no runs on five hits and striking out five as the right hander made his first career start on Tuesday.

“I can’t tell you how impressed I was with him,” said Martin on the performance of Carlton. “I thought his mound presence was that of a junior. He reminded me a lot of Mike Compton as a freshman, the way he was dealing to both sides of the plate. For him to go out there and go 5.0 scoreless, I didn’t expect that, but I did want to see him go 5.0 and we got that out of Drew tonight.”

“I was definitely nervous at first being a freshman and getting my first start but as soon as I got out there and threw my bullpen, I felt good,” added Carlton. “I was able to locate the ball well and just everything went my way tonight.”

Relievers Alex Deise, Andy Ward, Derek Vail and Will Zirzow pitched an inning each, combing to give up four hits and one run through four innings.

“We were able to use four other guys tonight and they pitched well too,” said Martin on the ability to go deep in the bullpen on Tuesday. “It was nice to see everyone play tonight.”

Stewart got the scoring started in the first inning with a two-run shot to left center, his second first-inning homer in as many games.

Freshman Dylan Busby hit the first home run of his career in the second, a solo shot lined just inside of the foul pole in left, to extend the lead to 3-0. Danny De La Calle added to the lead three batters later with a single up the middle to score Ben DeLuzio from second.

Stewart struck again in the third with an opposite-field solo blast to the scoreboard, marking his second multi-home run game of his career. It was his third home run in two games, fourth in four games, fifth of the season and 17th of his career.

“DJ has the ability to do damage to the opposite field and he proved that again today,” added Martin. “It’s a great thing to have.”

The Seminoles would add two more runs in the inning as the result of a pair of RBI doubles from Josh Delph and DeLuzio, making the score 7-0.

Sansone delivered in the fourth with a towering three-run shot that cleared the scoreboard in left to put FSU up by 10 runs. The home run was his third of the season and the seventh of his career.

An error in the outfield following a Taylor Walls single allowed Delph to score the 11th run of the game in the fifth inning. Three more runs would come in on a hit-by-pitch and a pair of walks, all with the bases loaded, drawn by Hayden Kelly, Gage West and Hank Truluck. Kelly, a junior from Inverness, Fla., was hit by three pitches, tying a single-game school record.

Truluck added a pair of runs to the scoreboard with a double to the wall in the seventh. The sophomore from Ocala, Fla., would end the game with a career-high four RBI.

The eighth inning included eight Seminole runs, including two runs coming in off of a triple down the line from West, who had a career-high three RBI. Pitcher Mike Compton came in as a pinch-hitter and collected his first career hit with an RBI ground-rule double.

Ward, a redshirt freshman right-hander from Oviedo, Fla., made his first career appearance on Tuesday as he worked the seventh. Will Zirzow, a redshirt freshman right-hander from Jacksonville, also made his first career appearance as he worked a scoreless ninth inning.

Jackson Owens recorded his first career hit with a single through the left side in the eighth. The Seminoles finished the afternoon with a season-high 19 hits.

USF’s only run of the game came on a Zac Gilcrease RBI single to centerfield in the seventh inning.

FSU Secures Sixth Straight Victory With 7-3 Win Over USF.
Alec Byrd works a career-high 5.2 innings in relief to earn his second win of the year.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 19 Florida State (10-3) overcame an early deficit to secure its 14th straight victory over USF (6-6-1) as the Seminoles defeated the Bulls 7-3 Wednesday afternoon on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

"After last night's ball game you want to be sure that nobody is thinking that this one is going to be easy," Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. "First part of the ball game we hit some balls hard, right at them but there were no signs of concern. Our guys are understanding that it's a 27-out ball game and for them to come back and play with that poise was very comforting to our coaching staff."

An impressive relief outing from Alec Byrd allowed the Seminoles to slowly chip away at USF's lead before taking the lead for good with a four-run sixth inning. The sophomore southpaw entered the game in relief of FSU starter Jim Voyles with the bases loaded and one out in the second inning. After walking the first batter that he faced, Byrd responded with a strikeout and a line out to escape further damage.

Byrd (2-0) then proceeded to keep the Bulls off the scoreboard over the next 5.0 innings. He finished the outing working a career-high 5.2 scoreless innings allowing three hits and a walk while striking out six. In his last three relief appearances, Byrd has given up just five hits and one walk with 16 strikeouts in 11.0 scoreless innings.

"I have just become more comfortable on the mound," said Byrd on his work so far this year. "I worked hard in the offseason. It's just a comfort zone."

Taylor Folsom worked the final two innings to record his first career save. The freshman lefty allowed a hit and a walk while finishing with a strikeout.

"Great pitching from Byrd and 'Doerun' (Taylor Folsom), they pitched very well," added Martin. "He (Byrd) has shown great poise; a little more gitty-up on his fastball; not afraid to throw his curveball. He threw the most pitches I can remember him throwing as a Seminoles (tonight) and that was 86. If anyone deserved to win it was him, the way he literally shut the other club down for 5.2 innings; a big lift for us tonight, no doubt about it."

Florida State has now won six straight entering this weekend's ACC opening series against Boston College. With the victory, the Seminoles also remained perfect at home improving to 9-0 on the year.

Three Seminoles tallied two hits in Wednesday's victory including freshmen Taylor Walls and Darren Miller and senior Danny De La Calle. Miller drove in a team-high two runs, while De La Calle scored a career-high three runs to go along with his second home run of the season.

"I kind of hit it off the end of the bat," added De La Calle. "I saw the trajectory of the ball and I said 'that might go.' I'm happy to help out the team."

USF ran out to an early 3-0 lead on Wednesday plating a run in the first and two more in the second. The Bulls strung together back-to-back singles by Kevin Merrell and Kyle Teaf to put runners at the corners against Voyles. Merrell score a batter later when Luke Borders reached on a fielding error at second. Voyles escaped further damage by recording a pair of strikeouts and fly out to end the first.

In the second inning, the Bulls took advantage of four walks and a second fielding error by the Seminoles to push their lead to three. Teaf and Luke Borders both drove in a run drawing a walk with the bases loaded.

Voyles' afternoon would come to an end after 1.1 innings of work. The sophomore right hander allowed three runs, two earned, on two hits as he walked three and struck out two.

The Seminoles cut the deficit to 3-1 in the third on an opposite field solo shot by De La Calle. The senior catcher took a 2-2 pitch from USF starter Ryan Valdes over the fence in right for his second home run of the season.

De La Calle plated the second run of the afternoon for the Seminoles in the fifth scoring from third on a balk. The Miami, Fla., native reached on a wild pitch following a swinging strikeout to open the bottom half of the inning. After a walk to Walls, De La Calle moved to third after Miller grounded into a double play. With DJ Stewart at the plate, USF elected to intentionally walk the junior outfielder. Before Valdes could throw the third pitch, he was charged with a balk bringing home De La Calle.

Florida State grabbed its first lead of the afternoon pushing across four runs in the bottom of the sixth and never looked back. The Seminoles took advantage of four walks, two hit-batters and a sac-fly to left while the only hit of the inning was an infield RBI single off the bat of Walls. Josh Delph and Miller picked up an RBI drawing a bases loaded walk and Ben DeLuzio drove in a run with a sac-fly to left.

Tommy Eveld (0-1), who opened the bottom of the sixth for USF, suffered the loss as he issued two walks and a hit-by-pitch to the three batters that he faced before coming out of the ballgame.

Valdes, a former Seminole, got the start for the Bulls on Wednesday and did not factor into the decision. The junior right hander allowed two runs on five hits as he walked three and struck out three.

The Noles added to their lead in the eighth on a two-out RBI single by Miller. De La Calle scored on the play, his third run of the game, after he reached on a double to left center.

Compton Tosses Complete Game Shutout As FSU Downs BC.
The redshirt junior allows just two hits while striking out a season-high seven.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Behind a complete game, two-hit shutout from starter Mike Compton, No. 19 Florida State (11-3, 1-0) rolled to a 7-0 victory over Boston College (5-7, 0-1) in the ACC opener for both teams Friday evening on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

“If anybody deserves that opportunity and that accomplishment its Mike Compton,” said Florida State head coach Mike Martin. “He is one of the best students I have ever coached. He is a special young man.”

Compton (1-0) was in command all night long keeping the Eagle bats at-bay by working both sides of the plate effectively to pick-up his first victory of the season.

“I felt pretty good,” said Compton. “It was mainly a fastball, slider mix with a few change-ups mixed in there. Coach Bell did a great job of calling pitches. It was just fastball command, slider command, making sure I got ahead of hitters the best I could.”

The two hits given up by Compton both came in the third inning. After a single by Blake Butera in the third, Compton retired 13 straight BC hitters and 18 of the last 19 to earn his second career complete game shutout. His first came almost one year ago as the redshirt junior right hander blanked Maryland 7-0 on March 9, 2014. Compton finished the outing with a season-high seven strikeouts.

“When you have an experienced guy on the mound like we had that there is no doubt it made the night more comfortable because he has pitched in every situation that you can pitch in,” added Martin. “This is the second time that he has shut out a team in our league for nine innings. I am just very, very proud of him and the way we played tonight. That was a good start to a very difficult 29 games that we have to play in this league.”

“Everything (was working for him),” added Danny De La Calle on the performance of Compton. “The man pitched a great game today. All credit goes to him, he did a great job. The way he had command on the mound was fun to watch and fun to catch.”

Compton also received plenty of run support on Friday night. De La Calle once again paced the offense with a game-high two hits, while Taylor Walls, Dylan Busby and Quincy Nieporte all drove in two runs each.

With the win, Florida State secured its seventh straight victory over Boston College, while improving to 22-2 all-time in ACC openers.

The Noles struck first Friday night plating the first run of the ballgame after De La Calle and Walls opened the bottom of the third with back-to-back doubles. De La Calle went down the line at third for FSU’s first hit of the night, while Walls followed with an RBI double to right. A Boston College error led to the second run of the inning for the Noles as Walls moved to third on the play and scored a batter later on an RBI groundout to first by DJ Stewart.

Florida State saw its lead grow to 6-0 after a four-run fifth inning. All four runs came with two outs including a pinch hit two-run single by Nieporte and a two-run double by Busby. De La Calle opened the inning with his second hit of the night, a single through the left side. Both Walls and John Sansone drew a walk before back-to-back hits by Nieporte and Busby broke the game wide open.

BC’s starting pitcher Jeff Burke (0-3) lasted just 4.2 innings as he allowed four runs, three earned, on three hits as he walked two and struck out five in suffering the loss.

The Seminoles added to their lead with a run in the sixth. Ben DeLuzio started the inning with a double to left, moved to third on a groundout to first by De La Calle and scored a batter later on a groundball hit by Walls. With the infield playing in, BC shortstop Johnny Adams went home on the groundball but it wasn’t in time to get the speedy DeLuzio as the Noles took a 7-0 advantage.

Late Inning Rally Pushes Noles to Series Victory Over BC.
Florida State scores three runs in the bottom of the eighth to grab a one-run victory.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 19 Florida State (12-3, 2-0) scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth rallying from a two-run deficit to defeat Boston College (5-8, 0-2) 3-2 and clinch the series victory Saturday evening on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

“A lot of games are won in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings and our guys showed very good mental toughness,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “We hit some balls hard, right at people but we kept battling. It was a very important win for us. I am very, very proud of our guys.”

Neither team was able to generate much offense in game two thanks in large part to the performances by both starting pitchers. The two teams managed just three hits on Saturday night as Florida State’s Boomer Biegalski and Boston College’s John Gorman found themselves locked in a classic pitcher duel.

After giving up a first inning two-run home run to the Eagles’ Chris Shaw in the top of the first, Biegalski struck out the next five batters that he faced and six of the next 10 BC hitters that came to the plate. The sophomore right hander finished with a career-high 10 strikeouts becoming the first Seminole pitcher to reach double-digit strikeouts since Mike Compton struck out 10 against Maryland on March 9, 2014.

Biegalski ended the outing retiring the final seven batters that he faced as he tied a career-high working 7.0 innings.

“He spots his fastball well, can throw his other two pitches at any time,” said Martin on the performance of Biegalski. “He’s a guy that is in total control of his emotions. His mound poise and presence is evident. I’m glad he’s a Seminole.”

Gorman was just as impressive yielding just one hit through seven innings. The lone hit during that span was a double to left off the bat of Dylan Busby in the second. Gorman faced the minimum in four of the first seven innings including striking out the side in the seventh.

The Seminoles were finally able to put something together off the BC starter before chasing him from the game with one out in the eighth. Josh Delph led off the inning drawing the second of two walks off Gorman. He would score from first two batters later when Danny De La Calle ripped an RBI double down the line in left.

“To come up with the big double, I mean Gorman was really, really impressive,” added Martin on the hit by De La Calle to spark the eighth inning rally. “He kept his team right there. Danny comes up to the plate and has an idea of how he’s been worked in the other at-bats. He picked us up big with that double down the line.”

Mike King (0-1) came on in relief of Gorman in the eighth and gave up a walk to pinch hitter Quincy Nieporte which included a wild pitch on ball four to move De La Calle to third. Darren Miller followed with an infield single to short that scored De La Calle to tie the game at 2-2. After a failed pick-off attempt moved the runners 90 feet, the Eagles intentionally walked DJ Stewart loading the bases with only one out.

King responded by getting John Sansone swinging on strikes for the second out of the inning. But the lead would go in favor of the Noles three pitches later as King plunked Gage West to bring home pinch runner Nick Graganella for the go-ahead run and a 3-2 Seminole advantage.

Gorman finished with a career-high 10 strikeouts in 7.1 innings of work as the senior right hander was charged with two runs on two hits.

Billy Strode sealed the victory working a perfect ninth inning as he retired the side in order on a pair of groundouts and a lineout at third for his sixth save in as many chances this year.

Bryant Holtmann (2-1) earned his second victory of the season as he pitched a scoreless eighth inning.

With the win, Florida State remained undefeated at home (11-0) in 2015 while securing its eighth straight victory. The Seminoles have now won 22 of 24 opening series all-time in the ACC.

Noles Double Up Eagles to Sweep Series.
Gage West and Dylan Busby both drive in three runs as the Seminoles win their ninth consecutive game.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 19 Florida State (13-3, 3-0) completed the series sweep of Boston College (5-9, 0-3) with an 8-4 victory Sunday afternoon on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

The Seminoles pushed their win streak to nine straight following Sunday’s victory and remained undefeated at home winning their first 12 games in Tallahassee to open the 2015 season.

“We played very well today,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “We did improve our defense this weekend. We didn’t give them extra outs, turned a couple double plays today. It was a good win; a well-played game. We had some good at-bats, a home run, we pitched well and played good defense. You might say we played a complete game today.

“Every game in our league is important. It was a good start for our ball club.”

FSU starter Cobi Johnson (2-1) picked up the win as the freshman right hander allowed three runs on five hits in 5.2 innings. After BC jumped out to an early 2-0 advantage, Johnson seemed to find his groove inducing two inning ending double plays while retiring 10 straight Eagle hitters at one stretch before leaving the game with two outs in the sixth.

“I struggled early on but thought I settled down after that,” said Johnson. “I just couldn’t get the off-speed over. I started to focus on getting a lot of fastballs over for strike one and strike two. I didn’t have my best stuff out there today, probably could have done a better job.”

“I thought Cobi showed a lot of resolve,” added Martin. “He got out there and struggled early. He fought back and when you look at his numbers, I was pleased that he found it there in the middle part of the game.”

Dylan Silva worked 1.2 scoreless innings in relief, while Derek Vail pitched the final 1.2 innings to secure the sweep.

Gage West paced the Seminole offense in the win with two hits as the sophomore designated hitter was a perfect 2-for-2 at the plate with a pair of singles and a walk. He tied a career-high with three RBI as two of those RBI came on a fourth inning single to tie the game at 2-2.

Dylan Busby also drove in three runs thanks to his second home run of the season, a three-run shot in the fifth.

BC’s Justin Dunn (2-1) suffered the loss as the sophomore right hander gave up six runs, five earned, on four hits as he walked six and struck out five in 4.1 innings.

For the second day in a row, Boston College ran out to an early two-run lead as the Eagles plated a pair in the top of the second off Johnson. Joe Cronin led off the inning with a walk and scored all the way from first a batter later on an RBI double down the line in left by Donovan Casey. After a balk by Johnson moved Casey to third, the Eagle left fielder scored the second run of the inning on an RBI single to left center by Stephen Sauter.

The Seminoles responded with a four-run fourth to grab their first lead of the afternoon at 4-2. DJ Stewart opened the inning drawing a walk off Dunn and moved to third on a double to the wall in left by John Sansone. West brought both runners home with a two-run single through the right side to tie the game at 2-2. A pair of two out walks would come back to haunt Dunn as both Josh Delph and Ben DeLuzio would score on an RBI single by Danny De La Calle and a passed ball, respectively, to give the Garnet & Gold a two-run cushion.

Florida State added four more runs in the fifth to extend its lead to 8-2. All four runs came on two outs as West delivered an RBI single to center followed by Busby’s three-run home run off the scoreboard in left.

BC put together a little two-out rally of its own in the sixth to score a run and cut the Seminole lead to 8-3. Chris Shaw got things going with a single through the left side. Michael Strem then blooped a single to short center followed by an RBI double to left by Cronin.

Cronin’s hit ended the afternoon for Johnson who went 5.2 innings in making his fourth career start. Silva came on in relief and got the Seminoles out of the jam as Casey lined to short to retire the side.

The Eagles added a run in the ninth on an RBI groundout by pinch hitter Nick Colucci. Casey scored on the play after leading off the inning with an infield single to third off Vail.

FSU Hangs On, Downs UCF 11-8.
The Seminoles secure their 10th straight win and 13th in a row at home.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 18 Florida State (14-3) ran out to an early lead and then hung on late to defeat No. 10 UCF (14-3) 11-8 Tuesday evening on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

“It was just one of those games that you are proud of the way we kept battling,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “It was a tough game for everybody. It seemed like so many different scenarios developed but yet we got good pitching throughout the game. It was a game that we persevered; we hung tough.”

The Seminoles plated all 11 runs in the first five innings before watching the Knights slowly chip away scoring at least one run over the final seven innings. UCF brought the tying run to the plate with two outs in the ninth but Billy Strode got JoMarcos Woods swinging on strikes to end the game for his seventh save in as many chances this year.

Making his second career starter on Tuesday, Alec Byrd (3-0) picked up the win after allowing three runs on six hits in 4.0 plus innings of work. Byrd, who was on a pitch count, retired seven of the first eight batters that he faced before UCF tagged him for a run in the third, fourth and fifth innings.

“He was very much in control of the situation,” said Martin on Byrd. “He was poised; his numbers were pretty good against a club of that caliber. You have to tip your hat to him, he did a good job.”

Four different Seminoles drove in at least two runs including Chris Marconcini, who made his first career appearance as a Seminole Tuesday night. The senior from Brentwood, Tenn., went 1-for-3 in his Florida State debut with an RBI single and a walk. He was replaced in the fifth after drawing a walk by pinch runner Nick Graganella.

“I thought he did a very good job tonight,” added Martin on the performance of Marconcini. “Chris had two ribs (RBI) with a walk. It was a very, very encouraging night for us to have him back.”

“It was nice,” said Marconcini on making his debut Tuesday night. “It’s been awhile since I actually got to play a game against another team. I was a little nervous at the beginning but felt pretty good by the end.”

Taylor Walls, Dylan Busby and Josh Delph joined Marconcini with two RBI in the win. Busby registered his second career three-hit game with two doubles and a single. John Sansone collected a pair of hits on a single in the second and solo home run in the fifth. Delph went 2-for-4 with two singles including a two-run base hit in the first.

“We had some very good swings; to get 13 hits was certainly encouraging for us off a good staff,” said Martin. “It was a good win.”

UCF’s Kyle Marsh (0-1) suffered the loss as the Knights’ starter allowed five runs, three earned, on four hits as he walked three and struck out three in 2.0 innings of work.

With the win, Florida State pushed its win streak to 10 straight while remaining undefeated at home running its record to a perfect 13-0. It also marked FSU’s sixth win in as many chances against a ranked UCF ball club since 2011.

Marconcini wasted very little time making his presence felt on Tuesday driving in the first run of the game in his first at-bat as a Seminole in the bottom of the first. The Seminoles quickly loaded the bases off Marsh as the UCF right hander issued a pair of walks and hit a batter to the first three hitters he faced. With the bases loaded, Marconcini stepped in and hit a groundball to first that brought home Walls from third but the throw to second was not handled cleanly by the Knights’ shortstop as the bases remained loaded. Delph followed two batters later with a two-run single through the right side to give the Seminoles an early 3-0 lead.

Florida State added two runs in the second to push its lead to 5-0. The top of the Seminole order once again caused havoc on Marsh as Walls reached on a one-out walk followed by three straight singles by Sansone, Stewart and Marconcini. Stewart reached on an infield single at second but an errant throw from UCF second baseman Kam Gellinger brought home Walls for the first run of the inning. Marconcini followed with an RBI single to left center to plate Sansone.

UCF cut into the lead with its first run of the ballgame in the third. Gellinger registered a one-out double to the gap in left center and scored two batters later on a fielder’s choice groundout by Derrick Salberg.

The Seminoles responded with two runs in the bottom of the inning to take a 7-1 advantage. Darren Miller and Ben DeLuzio opened the inning with a walk and bunt single, respectively. After a sac-bunt by Danny De La Calle moved the runners 90 feet, both would score a batter later as Walls laced a base hit back up the middle off reliever Parker Thomas.

The Knights pushed across their second run of the evening on an RBI single to right off the bat of Jordan Savinon. Tommy Williams drew a walk off Byrd to open the frame, moved to second on a groundout to short, advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on Savinon’s two-out single.

FSU answered the call once again with a run in the bottom of the inning to push its margin back to six at 8-2. The Seminoles strung together three consecutive hits including an RBI bloop single to right by Miller that scored Busby from third.

The two teams exchanged runs in the fifth. UCF drew within five on an RBI infield single by Salberg after back-to-back hits by Gellinger and Dylan Moore chased Byrd from the game. Dylan Silva came on and gave up an infield chopper to Salberg on his very first offering. The junior southpaw followed with three straight strikeouts to end the threat.

Florida State responded in the bottom of the fifth with a solo home run from Sansone and a two-run double down the line in left by Busby to extend its lead to 11-3.

JoMarcos Woods cut the deficit to 11-5 with one swing of the bat in the sixth. After Savinon reached on an infield single up the middle, Woods followed with a deep shot over the fence in right off Silva for his first home run of the season.

The Knights continued to chip away at FSU’s lead with a run in the seventh and eighth to reduce the margin to 11-7. Marsh singled home Erik Barber, who recorded a one-out double down the line in left in the seventh. With runners at the corners, Taylor Folsom came on in relief of Silva and got James Vasquez to ground into an ending inning double play to end the threat.

In the eighth, Salberg dropped a two-out single to short left to bring home Savinon but Walls made a nice play on the ball to get Moore out at third, who tried to advance from first, for the third out of the inning.

UCF would not go quietly in the ninth after Derek Vail registered two quick outs. Marsh kept the game alive with a ground-rule double to left followed by an RBI double to center by Vasquez.

With the tying run on deck, Martin went to the bullpen once again and called on Strode to get the final out. The senior lefty issued a walk Savinon but bounced back to Woods swinging on strikes to end the game.

“I thought everyone that pitched tonight of us did well even though we gave up some runs, you just have to credit UCF,” said Martin.

FLORIDA STATE 15, CENTRAL FLORIDA 11
03/11/2015, TALLAHASSEE, FL

Nieporte, Deise Lead Noles to Wild Wednesday Win Over UCF.
The Seminoles erased a three-run deficit three times to extend their win streak to 11 straight.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 18 Florida State (15-3) had to overcome a three-run deficit on three difference occasions Wednesday night using a seven-run seventh to grab the lead for good as the Seminoles defeated No. 10 UCF (14-4) 15-11 on Wednesday night to sweep the two-game mid-week series against Knights on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

“Our guys weren’t satisfied with only getting a win on Tuesday,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “Florida State got after it; a seven-run inning, a credit to our team. They played solid; they never gave up on themselves. It was exciting to see a team play like they did against a very good UCF team.”

Quincy Nieporte had a monster night at the plate going 4-for-4 with two home runs and a pair of singles as he finished the game with three runs scored and seven RBI. The sophomore first baseman drove in all seven runs in his first two at-bats after seeing just two pitches.

“Quincy has really been a great addition to our team,” said Martin. “He struggled a little bit early, got a chance to play today and I’ve been impressed with his approach at the plate. That was quite the display today, I am very proud of him.”

With two on and no outs in the second and the Seminoles trailing by three, Nieporte crushed the first offering from UCF starter Harrison Hikaru over the fence in left for a three-run shot and his first home run as a Seminole.

Then in the third Nieporte stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and proceeded to take the first pitch from reliever Zach Rodgers out of the park to left center for a grand slam and his second round tripper in as many at-bats.

“There was no surprise I was struggling early on in the season,” said Nieporte. “I was just waiting for one of these days where everyone was kind of clicking as a team. I couldn’t have had the day I had without everyone in front of me doing their job as well.

“I was just doing what I’ve been doing my whole life and that is hit a pitch I can drive, bring in some runs and spark some offense. It was a great team offensive win.”

Nieporte became the first Seminole to record at least seven RBI in a game since Buster Posey knocked in seven against Miami on April 28, 2007.

Florida State’s four-run lead was short lived as UCF scored seven unanswered over the fourth and fifth innings off reliever Drew Carlton to take a 10-7 lead.

Enter Alex Deise, who was called upon with no outs and a runner on in the fifth, to cool down a fired up UCF offense. After the first two Knight hitters reached on a single and a fielding error, Deise recorded a strikeout and an inning ending double play to retire the side.

Deise (1-0) would give up just two more hits the rest of the way en route to a masterful 5.0 innings in relief in which he finished with a career-high six strikeouts. The only run he allowed came off the bat of Logan Heiser, who deposited a 1-2 pitch out to left in the seventh for his second home run of the night.

“I was hoping that he could give us 2.2 innings and get us into the seventh,” said Martin. “He just kept his poise the whole time even when the guy (Heister) hit the home run. It was a good pitch (that he threw). But what did he do, he kept his poise, pitched five innings and gave up three hits, that’s quite an accomplishment.”

The Seminoles got exactly what they needed from Deise who kept the UCF offense at-bay allowing Florida State to stay within striking distance.

“I can’t say enough about Alex Deise,” added Martin. “He is a guy that hasn’t gotten many innings yet he goes out there and totally shuts them down. That is quite an accomplishment because they were literally wearing the ball out. We were sitting over there wondering what do we do now.”

The Florida State offense rewarded Deise with a seven-run seventh in which the Seminoles collected seven hits including a two-run single from Ben DeLuzio, a pinch-hit RBI single from Hank Truluck, an RBI bloop single to center from Taylor Walls and a two-run double down the line in left off the bat of John Sansone.

With the Seminoles holding a 15-11 advantage, Deise worked the eighth and ninth innings allowing just one hit, while collecting three of his six strikeouts including two in back-to-back at-bats to end the game.

“They are a good hitting team, the only thing you can do out there is try and mix speeds with location and pray for the best,” said Deise. “It was good (the change-up), bounced a few and one guy hit a home run but other than that I felt pretty good.”

UCF’s Trent Thompson (0-2) suffered the loss as he allowed six of the seven runs in the seventh as the sophomore right hander lasted just 0.1 innings.

Making his second consecutive start as the Seminole designated hitter, Chris Marconcini reached base in four of his five plate appearances as he walked three times and opened the bottom of the seventh with a single through the right side. Marconcini crossed the plate four times on Wednesday. DeLuzio tied a career-high with three RBI.

Florida State starter Bryant Holtmann did not factor into the decision on Wednesday as the senior southpaw allowed three runs, two earned, on two hits as he walked two and struck out two in 2.2 innings.

With the win, Florida State improved to 30-6 all-time against UCF and 7-0 when facing a ranked Knights’ team. The Seminoles also extended their win streak to 11 straight and remained perfect at home with a 14-0 mark.

WAKE FOREST 4, FLORIDA STATE 1
03/13/2015, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

FSU Falls to Wake Forest, 4-1.
The Seminoles drop their first game at home in 2015.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 18 Florida State (15-4, 3-1) dropped its first ACC game of the season Friday night falling to Wake Forest (13-6, 3-1) 4-1 on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium. The loss snapped the Seminoles’ 11-game win streak while it marked their first loss at home in 15 games this year.

Just 10 minutes before the start of Friday night’s game, FSU’s Mike Compton was scratched from his scheduled start due to an abdominal strain that he suffered during warm-up tosses in the bullpen.

“I was very proud of the way we fought in a very unusual situation when you’re 10 minutes from the first pitch and you get a call from the bullpen saying I got bad news,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “Unfortunately Michael has a pulled abdominal muscle. He didn’t do anything different then he’s been doing the entire time he’s been here, it just happened.”

Ed Voyles was called upon to make the emergency start, the first of his career. The redshirt freshman went 1.2 innings allowing an unearned run on three hits as he struck out two and did not issue a walk in suffering the loss.

“I found out like 10 minutes before the game; 5:50 (pm) I was standing in the dugout and Eleven yells over ‘you’re in, you’re starting,’” said Ed Voyles. “I was just thinking about going out there; gotta get loose, gotta get ready. I was definitely feeling butterflies in my stomach for sure, but I felt pretty comfortable, it wasn’t too bad.”

Wake took advantage of a fielding error in the second to plate the game’s first run. Ben Breazeale reached on the error to open the inning and then scored on an RBI single to right by Justin Yurchak.

The Demon Deacons added two more runs in the third to widen their lead to 3-0. Nate Mondou and Will Craig started the inning with back-to-back doubles off Taylor Folsom. Craig would score the second run of the inning on a sac-fly to right by Joe Napolitano.

The Deacs had their chances to add to their lead in the early goings but stranded 10 runners through the first five innings leaving the bases loaded in the second and fifth innings.

The three runs were plenty for Wake Forest starter Matt Pirro, who moved to 5-0 on the year, after allowing a run on two hits in 5.2 innings of work. The senior right hander finished with three walks and four strikeouts.

“I was very proud of the way we battled,” added Martin. “Had a couple of opportunities, we left 12 on, they left 11, so it was one of those games that it could have been a lot worse for us but we kept battling. And that’s all we can ask from our guys.”

The Seminoles put something together off Pirro in the sixth after the Wake starter walked Taylor Walls, gave up an infield single to DJ Stewart and then hit Dylan Busby with a pitch. With the bases loaded and two outs, the Deacs went to the bullpen and called on Saturday’s scheduled starter Parker Dunshee.

Dunshee issued a walk to Quincy Nieporte to drive in Walls but then got Josh Delph looking at a called third strike after a long at-bat to retire the side.

Florida State would continue to put base runners on over the final three innings against Dunshee, but could not seem to find the big hit. The Seminoles finished Friday night’s game leaving 12 runners stranded.

Wake, who entered Friday’s game as the top hitting team in the ACC with a .323 mark, out hit Florida State 12-4.

Nieporte had two of FSU’s four hits singling in the second and eighth innings. The sophomore first baseman reached on three of his four plate appearances.

The Seminoles would not go quietly in the ninth as pinch hitter Hank Truluck drew a walk and John Sansone singled to right. But Dunshee was just too much as he got Stewart swinging on strikes and Chris Marconcini to groundout to first to end the game.

“It was frustrating that we lost, no one is ever happy losing but everyone has faith and trust in each and know that we can get it done,” said Nieporte. “It was just one of those days where it didn’t seem much was falling for us.”

Dunshee worked the final 3.1 innings to earn his first save of the season. He did not allow a run but gave up two hits and five walks while striking out seven.

“They did a very good job mixing speeds, location, they located very well,” said Nieporte on the performance of both Pirro and Dunshee. “They came in on us hard and got some of us to chase. They did what they had to do, they were on tonight.”

Jim Voyles worked a career-high 3.0 innings in the loss allowing a run on five hits as he walked one and struck out three.

Will Zirzow came on in relief of Jim Voyles in the sixth and also pitched a career-high in innings. The redshirt freshman right hander faced the minimum in his 3.1 innings of work as he allowed just one hit and no walks while striking out four.

“They showed a lot of poise; they were in control of their emotions,” added Martin on the performance of his young pitchers on Friday night.

Noles Bounce Back to Beat Wake Forest, 12-2.
Boomer Biegalski goes 8.0 strong innings, strikes out eight in earning his second win of the season.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 18 Florida State (16-4, 4-1) rebounded from its first loss at home on Friday night with a resounding 12-2 victory over Wake Forest (13-7, 3-2) in game two Saturday evening on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

The Seminoles once again got another outstanding pitching performance from Boomer Biegalski and then broke open a three-run lead thanks to a seven-run seventh inning.

“We played solid defense behind an outstanding pitching performance by Boomer Biegalski,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “When you don’t walk anybody and you give them five hits in 8.0 innings, you save the bullpen. This was a big lift for us.”

For the third time in five starters this year, Biegalski (2-1) worked at least 7.0 innings finishing Saturday night throwing a career-high 8.0 innings against the Deacs. After giving up a solo home run to Ben Breazeale and a single back up the middle to Stuart Fairchild in consecutive at-bats in the fourth, the sophomore right hander retired the next 13 Demon Deacon hitters before giving up a two-out double in the eighth. He responded by getting a fly out to end the inning.

“Tonight was an opportunity for him to answer the bell,” added Martin on the performance of Biegalski. “We had been beaten last night. He went out there and pitched beautifully. When he gave up the home run, it was ‘no big deal; let’s go.’ He just kept pounding the strike zone, mixing his pitches well.”

Biegalski limited Wake Forest, who entered the game as the top hitting team in the ACC with a .323 average, to just two runs on five hits. He struck out eight and did not issue a walk for the first time as a Seminole.

“I felt good overall,” added Biegalski. “I had a shaky third and fourth but settled in there and then our team hit the ball real well tonight and that helped out tremendously.”

The Florida State offense also rebounded from last night’s four-hit performance putting up 16 on Saturday night. John Sansone tied a career-high with three hits in the win to lead all players, while all nine Seminole starters registered at least one hit. Taylor Walls, Hank Truluck and Josh Delph finished with two hits each.

“We can’t get too excited; we have to be ready to go tomorrow,” added Martin. “This club has beaten us one time; we have beaten them one time. We can’t feel like we accomplished an awful lot. Tomorrow is the rubber game; we have to be ready to go.”

With the Seminoles leading 5-2 and Biegalski cruising with 6 ½ innings in the books, Florida State broke the game open in the bottom of the seventh with seven runs on six hits sending 11 batters to the plate. DJ Stewart set the tone in the inning blasting a two-run shot to right center for his sixth home run of the season. After Ben DeLuzio knocked in a run on a fielder’s choice groundout, FSU registered three consecutive run scoring hits. Danny De La Calle hit an RBI double down the line in left, Walls singled up the middle and Sansone recorded an RBI double to left.

“Certainly to get seven gives you a feeling that you got total control of the game,” said Martin. “We had a lot of key hits in the game, none bigger than DJ Stewart’s home run.”

Derek Vail faced the minimum in the ninth to wrap-up the game two victory and force the rubber game of the series on Sunday afternoon.

Wake’s Connor Johnstone (1-1) suffered his first loss of the season after allowing three runs, one earned, on five hits in 3.0 plus innings of work.

The Seminoles got off to a quick start on Saturday taking advantage of a Wake Forest error, one of four on the night, to plate a pair of runs in the bottom of the first. An errant throw by shortstop Drew Freedman brought home Sansone for the first run of the game. The error prolonged the inning allowing Truluck to single home Stewart for one of his two RBI on the night.

The Deacs cut the deficit in half in the third when Jonathan Pryor reached on a two-out hit by pitch and scored all the way from first on an RBI double to left by Joey Rodriguez.

Wake Forest tied the game at 2-2 in the fourth on Breazeale’s solo home run to right center off Biegalski.

But the tie was short lived as Florida State responded with a run in the bottom of the fourth to retake the lead at 3-2. Delph and DeLuzio opened the inning with a double and bunt single, respectively, to put runners at the corners. Delph would score a batter later on a ground ball double play off the bat of De La Calle.

The Seminoles added to their lead in the sixth when Truluck drove in Quincy Nieporte on a double off the wall in right center. He would later score on a throwing error by Wake third baseman Keegan Maronpot on a sac-bunt attempt by Delph.

FSU Clinches Series With 9-6 Victory Over Wake Forest.
The Seminoles finish their 14-game home stand with a 13-1 record.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 18 Florida State (17-4, 5-1) clinched the weekend series with a 9-6 victory over Wake Forest (13-8, 3-3) in the rubber game Sunday afternoon on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

The Seminoles scored five runs in the first two innings and never looked back erasing a three-run first inning lead by the Demon Deacons. The win put the finishing touches on FSU’s 14-game home stand which saw the Seminoles post a record of 13-1.

“A big lift for us to answer their three (runs) with two in the first and three in the second,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “Very proud of our young men, the way they bounced back from opening night. This conference is setting up to be exactly like we thought it would be: extremely difficult; long way to go.”

DJ Stewart and Danny De La Calle both registered two hits in the win. Stewart picked up three RBI, while De La Calle and Quincy Nieporte each drove in two runs. Taylor Walls scored a career-high three runs as he walked twice and singled in the first from the leadoff spot.

Bryant Holtmann (3-1) earned the win in relief limiting the Demon Deacons to a run on three hits as he did not walk a batter and struck out two.

Dylan Silva pitched a perfect eighth inning as he faced the minimum and struck out two. Billy Strode closed things out in the ninth to preserve the win.

After a shaky first inning, Florida State starter Cobi Johnson settled down keeping the Deacs off the scoreboard over the next 3.1 innings of work. The freshman right hander finished the outing allowing three runs, all in the first, on seven hits as he walked one and struck out two.

“Cobi struggled early, then settled down and pitched very good baseball,” said Martin. “But as a youngster, you just have to realize you can't go out there and have to work his way into a rhythm. He has to have it when he takes the mound. But I was very pleased with the composure he showed. Went out there and kept his team in the game.”

Wake wasted very little time to crack the scoreboard on Sunday scoring three runs on four hits off Johnson. The Deacs recorded three straight hits to open the first including an RBI single through the right side by Nate Mondou. Will Craig brought home the second run on a sac-fly to right followed by a two-out RBI bloop single to right off the bat of Stuart Fairchild.

Florida State responded in the bottom half of the inning with a pair of runs to cut the deficit to 3-2. Walls started things off with a single to left, while Stewart reached on a one-out walk. Nieporte brought both runners home on a double down the line in right.

The Seminoles grabbed their first lead of the afternoon following a three-run second to take a 5-3 advantage. De La Calle began the inning with a single through the left side and later scored on a wild pitch. Walls and John Sansone drew back-to-back walks, moved into scoring position on a wild pitch and scored on a two-out single through the right side by Stewart.

Stewart drove in his third run of the game in the fourth with another two-out RBI. After Walls and Sansone drew consecutive walks from Donnie Sellers, Stewart stepped in and ripped a single to the gap in right center to score Walls from second to give the Noles a 6-3 lead.

Wake Forest put two aboard in the fifth after Johnson hit a batter and then gave up a one-out single to Craig. Holtmann came on in relief of Johnson and got a strikeout to the first hitter he faced before hitting Stuart Fairchild to load the bases. The senior southpaw would get out of the jam by getting Justin Yurchak to ground into a fielder’s choice putout at second to end the threat.

The Deacs cut the deficit to 6-4 in the sixth on a solo home run by Bruce Steel. The freshman shortstop took a 1-1 offering from Holtmann over the fence in right for his first career home run.

Florida State broke the game open with a three-run seventh to take a commanding 9-4 lead. Nick Graganella drove in pinch runner Jackson Owens with an RBI double to the gap in right center. With runners at second and third and the infield drawn in, De La Calle bounced a two-run single up the middle to give FSU a five-run advantage.

Wake Forest added two more runs in the ninth on a two-run home run from Craig. It was the first two runs allowed by Strode this year.

Noles Fall to Gators in Gainesville.
The Seminoles cannot overcome a five-error night in suffering their fifth straight loss to the Gators.

GAINESVILLE, FL – No. 11 Florida State (17-5) could not overcome a sloppy fielding night and a 16-hit night from the Gators in falling to No. 3 Florida (19-3) 14-8 Tuesday evening inside McKethan Stadium on Perry Field.

After Florida State scored two runs in the first, Florida answered with five runs in the bottom of the inning as the Noles found themselves fighting from behind all night long. FSU drew within one of Florida’s lead after three innings of play before tying the game at seven in the fifth.

“I was very, very impressed the way we fought back tonight,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “It was encouraging to see us continue to scrap all night long. But we have to turn the page on this one and look forward to this weekend’s series at Virginia.”

But the Gators responded with three runs in the bottom half of the fifth to take the lead for good in earning their fifth straight win over the Seminoles. For the second time this year, Florida State was the victim of five errors but this time around the Seminoles were on the losing end of the game.

“It was just one of those games that we obviously did not play well but that’s what makes our sport so great,” added Martin. “God willing two days from now we are going to play another game. It was something that I hope we can learn from because five errors don’t beat many people.”

Drew Carlton (1-1) suffered the loss in relief after giving up three runs, one earned, on three hits in 0.1 innings of work.

Mike Vinson (2-0) earned the win for the Gators after recording two strikeouts in the fifth. Aaron Rhodes, Brett Morales and Logan Browning combined to throw the final 4.0 innings holding the Seminoles to just one run on one hit to preserve the win.

The 14 runs by Florida on Tuesday night was the most scored by the Gators in the series since plating 16 against the Seminoles in Jacksonville on April 3, 2007. It also marked the most combined runs by the two teams since a 17-11 victory by Florida State in an NCAA Regional elimination game on May 31, 2008.

“In all honesty, plain and simple, we got our butts beat tonight,” said Martin. “There are no ifs, ands, or butts, there are no excuses, we got beat.”

John Sansone paced the Seminole offense with three hits and two runs scored, while Taylor Walls and Quincy Nieporte each had two hits and scored two runs in the loss. Chris Marconcini went 1-for-3 with a two-run double.

The two teams combined for seven runs and seven hits in the first inning with the Gators getting the better half of the scoring with five runs on four hits.

The Noles broke out to the early lead plating two runs in the top of the first on three hits off Florida starter Eric Hanhold. Walls and Sansone opened the game with a single and double, respectively, to put runners at second and third. DJ Stewart drove in Walls for the first run of the game on a groundout to second. Nieporte followed with an RBI single through the left side to plate Sansone and give Florida State a 2-0 advantage.

The lead was short lived as Florida responded with five runs off FSU starter Alec Byrd. Harrison Bader, Josh Tobias, Mike Rivera and Jeremy Vasquez all registered run scoring hits as Vasquez’ two-run double down the line in right closed out the scoring in the first.

Florida added to its lead in the second as Dalton Guthrie opened the inning with a double down the line in left and scored two batters later on an RBI groundout by Bader.

The Seminoles came right back to cut the deficit to one with a three-run third. FSU loaded the bases with one out off Hanhold on a single by Sansone and back-to-back walks to Stewart and Nieporte ending the night for the Gator starter. Alex Faedo came out of the bullpen and gave up a two-run double to left to Marconcini and an RBI single to left to Dylan Busby to make the score 6-5.

Florida got a run back in the fourth after successfully pulling off a double steal. With Tobias taking off early for second, Bryant Holtmann was late to get off the mound to get Richie Martin running from third. The Gator shortstop slid well in front of the tag to give UF a 7-5 advantage. It could have been more for the Gators on a base hit to right by Rivera, but a nice throw by Josh Delph to plate was held on to by Danny De La Calle following a hard slide at home by Tobias.

Florida State drew even at 7-7 plating a pair of runs in the fifth. Nieporte started the inning with a single to left and later scored on a passed ball. The Seminoles pulled off a double steal of their own in the inning with runners at the corners to tie the game. With Delph at first and Busby at third after drawing back-to-back walks, Delph successfully stole second and with the throw going through Busby easily crossed the plate for his second stolen base of the night.

The Gators grabbed the lead right back in the bottom of the inning with three more runs taking advantage of two more Seminole errors. Vasquez led off the bottom of the fifth with a double off Carlton and scored a batter later on an RBI single up the middle by Ryan Larson. Fielding errors in center and at third led to two more Florida runs and a 10-7 lead.

Florida added to its lead in the sixth on an RBI single up the middle by Ryan Larson. Rivera, who scored on the play, registered a one-out double to left off Silva.

JJ Schwarz gave the Gators a 14-7 lead with one swing of the bat in the seventh. After a triple by Martin and walk to Tobias, the Florida designated hitter took a 1-1 offering from Alex Deise out of the park to left for his fifth home run of the season.

Florida State scored its eighth run of the game in the eighth after Walls led off the inning with a triple and scored on a sac-fly by Sansone.

Big Seventh Inning Lifts UVa Past FSU.
A fielding error in the seventh leads to five unearned runs for the Cavaliers.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – A seventh inning error proved costly for No. 11 Florida State (17-6, 5-2) as the Seminoles dropped game one of the series to No. 7 Virginia (14-5, 3-4) 8-4 on a cold and dreary Friday evening inside UVA Baseball Stadium on Davenport Field.

The Cavaliers took advantage of FSU’s only error of the game scoring five unearned runs in the seventh as Virginia defeated Florida State for the fourth straight time on its home turf. Kenny Towns, Matt Thaiss and Ernie Clement recorded three consecutive RBI hits in the inning to give UVa the lead for good on Friday night.

“Unfortunately, that error came back to get us in the seventh,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “But there is still a lot of baseball left to be played and we will learn from this game. It was certainly a credit to our young club to jump out to the early lead and at the same time very disappointing to lose it like we did.”

Dylan Silva (2-1) suffered the loss as he was charged with four of the five unearned runs in the seventh.

Neither starting pitcher would factor into the decision on Friday night. FSU starter Boomer Biegalski would work into the seventh for the fifth straight outing leaving with one out in the sixth. The sophomore right hander allowed four runs, three earned, on five hits as he walked four and struck out nine.

“Boomer’s outing was excellent,” added Martin. “To hold them down like he did was a clear example of what he can be for us throughout the season. He’s just one of those guys that is willing to learn everything he can about the game. He faced a lot of good hitters tonight and he did a great job.”

Virginia’s Nathan Kirby allowed four runs, two earned, on six hits in 6.0 innings of work. The junior lefty tied a career-high with five walks while striking out 11. It marked the third time this year that Kirby finished a start with double-digit strikeouts.

Kevin Doherty (1-0) picked up the win for the Cavaliers as the freshman right hander worked 1.1 scoreless innings allowing a hit and a walk while striking out two.

Taylor Walls and Dylan Busby each finished with two hits in the loss to pace the Seminole offense. DJ Stewart and Chris Marconcini both registered three walks apiece.

Towns and Thaiss provided a majority of the Cavaliers’ offensive production on Friday night as the two combined for four hits, five runs and five RBI.

Florida State took an early 3-0 lead taking advantage of two Virginia fielding errors in the second. After Josh Delph reached on the first error in the inning and Danny De La Calle singled through the left side off Kirby, Walls brought home Delph for the first run of the game with another single through the left side. John Sansone followed with an RBI single to left to plate De La Calle, while Walls also scored on the play as UVa third baseman Kenny Towns could not handle the throw from left.

Virginia came right back with two runs in the bottom of the inning to cut FSU’s lead to 3-2. Towns and Thaiss opened the inning with a single and a walk, respectively, while both runners advanced 90 feet on a sac-bunt by Clement. Doherty would bring home both runners on a single up the middle.

The Seminoles upped their lead to 4-2 with a run in the third. Marconcini drew his second walk in as many plate appearances to start the inning and scored three batters later on a one-out RBI single to center by Delph.

The Cavaliers answered with a run of their own in the bottom of the fourth on a solo home run by Thaiss. The sophomore catcher took the first pitch from Biegalski to open the inning out of the park to right for his seventh round tripper of the season.

A fielding error by Florida State in the seventh led to five unearned runs for Virginia and an 8-4 lead. The Cavaliers registered three consecutive two-out hits off Silva to grab their first lead of the ballgame. With the bases loaded, Towns took a 1-1 offering from Silva into right center to bring home two and give UVa a 5-4 advantage. Virginia added to its lead on a two-run double by Thaiss and an RBI single to left by Clement.

The Seminoles threatened in the top of the eighth off Doherty putting runners at the corners with one out. UVa went to the bullpen bringing on Josh Sborz who struck out back-to-back Florida State pinch hitters to get Virginia out of the jam.

Sborz preserved the win in the ninth working around a single by Walls and a one-out walk to Stewart as he struck out Quincy Nieporte and Nick Graganella to end the game and pick-up his fifth save of the season.

Ninth Inning Home Runs Carry Noles to Road Win Over UVa.
The Seminoles hit four home runs in Saturday’s victory.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – Two ninth-inning home runs capped an incredible come-from-behind victory for the Seminoles as No. 11 Florida State (18-6, 6-2) defeated No. 7 Virginia (14-6, 3-5) 12-10 on Saturday afternoon to even the three-game series inside the UVA Baseball Stadium on Davenport Field.

Trailing by one and facing Cavalier closer Josh Sborz (1-2) for the second straight game, the Seminoles rallied for three ninth inning runs to capture their first win in Charlottesville since a 12-11, 10-inning victory, back on March 20, 2011.

Darren Miller open the ninth drawing a walk before coming out of the game for pinch runner Nick Graganella. Dylan Busby followed with the biggest hit of his young career as the freshman third baseman took a 1-1 offering from Sborz just inside the left field foul pole and just over the fence as Florida State regained the lead at 11-10. Danny De La Calle added an insurance run two batters with a two-out solo shot to deep left to give the Noles a two-run advantage.

“Our freshmen are beginning to come of age,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “So many things transpired in today’s game but we showed the mental toughness to hang in there and battle until the very end.”

Dylan Silva (3-1) worked the final 1.2 innings to earn the win. The junior southpaw worked around a walk and a two-out single in the ninth getting Pavin Smith to fly out to left for the final out of the game.

“It was a game that makes you feel proud to be a Seminole,” added Martin. “The obstacles that we had to overcome from being down early and then late in the game was a credit to our young men. It was one of those games that you really never knew it was over until the final ball disappeared in DJ’s glove. I was very pleased with the fight, effort and determination of our ball club. It was a big win for us.”

Florida State hit four home runs on Saturday including two in the ninth. John Sansone helped the Seminoles erase an early two-run deficit as the junior second baseman connected on his first career grand slam en route to a six-run fifth inning for Florida State.

Virginia starter Connor Jones had held the Noles without a hit through the first four innings before De La Calle loaded the bases with a bloop single to center in the fifth. After Taylor Walls drew a walk to bring home FSU’s first run of the game, Sansone took the first offering from Jones out of the park to left center for his fifth home run of the season. Busby drove in DJ Stewart for the sixth run of the inning on a deep sac-fly to center.

After UVa cut the deficit to 6-3 following a Kenny Towns bases loaded walk in the bottom of the fifth, Stewart followed in the top of the sixth with a big two-out, two-run single back up the middle off Cavalier lefty Bennett Sousa to give the Seminoles an 8-3 advantage and their biggest lead of the afternoon.

That lead was erased in the bottom of the seventh when the Cavaliers scored five runs to tie the game at 8-8. Virginia took advantage of an error, four walks and two hits off three Seminole relievers.

The tie was short lived thanks to a mammoth solo home run off the bat of Stewart in the eighth. Derek Casey looked as though he would cruise through the inning after recording back-to-back strikeouts. But the Cavalier reliever fell behind in the count to Stewart at 3-1 before his next pitch left the park in a hurry as Florida State reclaimed the lead at 9-8.

Virginia would not go quietly scoring two runs off Billy Strode in the eighth as the Cavaliers recaptured the lead at 10-9. Towns tied the game with an RBI double to left, while Matt Thaiss drove in Smith with the go-ahead run on a sac-fly to right.

Stewart and De La Calle each finished with two hits apiece on Saturday. Stewart finished the game 2-for-3 with three RBI and two runs scored as he reached base on four of his five plate appearances.

FSU starter Drew Carlton settled down nicely after giving up two first inning runs to the Cavaliers. The freshman right hander, making his second career start, did not factor into the decision after allowing three runs, two earned, on four hits in 4.1 innings. He walked one and struck out four.

“Drew did pitch the best he has pitched all year,” said Martin. “I thought he spotted his fastball well. I thought coach Bell did a great job of calling the game and keeping him in rhythm. He came within two outs of giving us five but he definitely ran out of gas.”

After giving up a single to right to Robbie Coman in the second, Carlton retired seven straight UVa hitters before walking Coman to open the bottom of the fifth.

A total of a six Florida State pitchers were used on Saturday as Taylor Folsom, Bryant Holtmann, Alec Byrd, Strode and Silva all saw action in relief in game tw@

Noles Power Past Cavaliers.
DJ Stewart hits two home-runs, ties a career-high with six RBI in Sunday’s victory.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – No. 11 Florida State (19-6, 7-2) powered past No. 7 Virginia (14-7, 3-6) on Sunday afternoon as the Seminoles took the rubber game of the series with a 13-1 victory inside the UVA Baseball Stadium on Davenport Field.

Dylan Busby and DJ Stewart sparked the Florida State offense as both players registered home runs for the second straight game.

Stewart left the yard twice on Sunday for his third multi-home run game of his career. The junior left fielder connected on a grand slam in the seventh and a two-run home run in the ninth. Busby got things started in a nice way unloading on a three-run shot to left center in the first.

The win marked the first series victory for the Seminoles in Charlottesville since 2004 when FSU dropped the first game of the series only to win the next two. It also marked the first time FSU has twice registered double digit runs in Charlottesville since 2002.

“It was just one of those weekends that things went our way,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “But we know how good Virginia is; this was a good series win this weekend.”

Quincy Nieporte and Stewart finished with three hits apiece, while Stewart tallied six RBI to tie a career-high. Busby finished with three RBI and Nieporte drove in a pair.

FSU starter Cobi Johnson (3-1) recorded his best outing of his young career as the freshman right hander tossed a career-high 7.0 innings allowing a run on five hits as he walked two and struck out five.

“That was his best outing of the year,” said Martin on Johnson’s performance. “Coach Bell did a great job of mixing pitches. Cobi was impressive with all three pitches today. That’s something we have been waiting to see and I have to admit he couldn’t have picked a better day to it. His mound presence was beyond his years this afternoon.”

“I felt decent; fastball, change-up mix, just tried to change speeds and location to keep them off-balanced,” added Johnson.

Taylor Folsom threw the final two innings to close out the win and the series victory. The freshman lefty gave up two hits and a walk while striking out two.

Florida State ran out to the early lead on Sunday plating four runs in the top of the first off UVa starter Brandon Waddell (1-1). The Seminoles took advantage of three walks in the inning as Nieporte brought home the first FSU run with a sharp single to left. Busby cleared the bases with one swing of the bat two hitters later as the freshman third baseman took the first pitch from Waddell out of the park to left center for a three-run shot and a 4-0 advantage.

“That was so big in the first inning,” said Martin on Busby’s home run in the first. “Just a huge hit so early in the ballgame.”

Virginia answered with a run in the bottom of the inning on a two-out RBI single to right by Matt Thaiss. Daniel Pinero, who scored on the play, opened the bottom of the first with a single through the left side.

The Seminoles added to their lead in fourth on a two-out double by Nieporte. After two quick outs by Waddell, Stewart drew a walk before scoring all the way from first on Nieporte’s ringing double to the gap in right center. Florida State looked to add more in the inning when Chris Marconcini singled through the right side but UVa right fielder Adam Haseley made a nice throw to the plate to get Nieporte to retire the side.

Florida State broke the game open scoring five runs in the seventh to take a commanding 10-1 lead. After Taylor Walls drew a bases loaded walk to drive in Busby for the first run of the inning, Stewart followed two batters later with his second career grand slam. The junior from Yulee, Fla., took a 2-2 offering from Alec Bettinger out of the park to left for his second home run of the series and eighth of the season.

“He couldn’t have picked a better time to do what he did in a 6-1 ball game,” said Martin on Stewart’s grand slam in the seventh.

“I definitely feel more comfortable now than I did earlier in the season,” said Stewart. “I feel like I was trying to do too much in the beginning of the year. I just have to come out every single day and try and improve every day. Today we were able to improve and got a huge win.”

The Seminoles added three more runs in the ninth courtesy of a two-run home run by Stewart and an RBI groundout by Steven Wells, Jr.

Florida State drew 15 walks on Sunday including four by Hank Truluck. Walls finished with three walks, while Stewart and Busby recorded two each.

FSU Slides Past Alabama State 8-7.
Danny De La Calle triples and scores the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 9 Florida State (20-6) scored five unanswered runs over the final three innings Wednesday night to earn a hard fought 8-7 victory over Alabama State (13-10) on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Twice the Seminoles faced a deficit on Wednesday night only to fight back from three runs down after three and then four runs down after the top of the sixth.

"It was a game in which we got it done, plain and simple, we got it done," Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. "It's not an easy task when you fall behind by three and then fall behind by four. And each time we kept battling. I credit our guys for a great effort."

Danny De La Calle gave the Seminoles their first lead of the night after scoring from third on a wild pitch from Jorge Pantoja (0-2) in the bottom of the eighth. The senior catcher, who entered the game at catcher in the top of the seventh, hit a ball off the wall in straight away center to open the eighth for his first career triple.

"It felt good to help out the team," said De La Calle. "I felt like I hit it well. I thought for a second it was going to go out but then I remembered that's a long way out there so I just kept running as hard as I can. Fortunately enough I was able to turn it into a triple."

"I didn't promise him the whole day when I talked to him about giving him the day off but I reserved the right to change my mind," added Martin. "He has been a warrior for two years. Danny of course was a leadoff hitter there in the eighth and let's face it guys we haven't seen very many balls hit off that centerfield wall this year; that was smoked."

Billy Strode retired the side in order in the ninth to pick-up his ACC-leading eighth save of the year.

Dylan Silva (4-1) earned the win after turning in a scoreless inning in relief. Silva gave up a double inside the bag at first to open the top of the eighth but settled down nicely striking out the next three batters that he faced.

Dylan Busby continued his torrid hitting at the plate as the freshman third baseman picked up another three hits while adding a three-run home run in the fourth which helped erase an early 3-0 Alabama State lead. It marked his third home run in as many games. Busby finished the game with a single and a double in his final two at-bats.

Chris Marconcini evened the game at 7-7 with one swing of the bat in the seventh. The senior transfer from Duke University took a 1-2 offering from ASU's T.J. Renda over the fence in right center for a two-run shot and his first home run as a Seminole. Quincy Nieporte, who scored on the home run, drew a one-out walk. Marconcini finished the night with two walks while scoring three times.

Hank Truluck and Taylor Walls picked up an RBI in the sixth on a bases loaded walk and a sac-fly, respectively.

Alec Byrd, who made his third start of the season, did not factor into the decision after allowing three runs on four hits in 3.0 innings. The sophomore southpaw walked one and struck out one.

Alabama State showed some power on Wednesday night as well hitting a pair of home runs in the loss. Yamil Pagan unloaded on a three-run home run in the third off Byrd to give the Hornets an early 3-0 lead.

After FSU tied the game at three, the Hornets regained the lead in the sixth on an RBI single by designated hitter Hunter Allen and a three-run home run off the bat of Manny Rodriguez. The ASU catcher took a 1-0 pitch from Derek Vail out of the park to left center for his first home run of the season.

"Obviously very pleased with the fight as we were four down with nine outs to go," said Martin. "The guys put together a very impressive inning. You have to credit Alabama State, they really fought; they have a heck of a club. They did a lot of impressive things tonight."

Will Zirzow came on in relief of Vail in the sixth and finished his outing working 1.1 scoreless innings. The redshirt freshman right hander allowed just one hit and struck out two.

VIRGINIA TECH 8, FLORIDA STATE 3
03/27/2015, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

FSU Drops Game One to Virginia Tech, 8-3.
The Hokies plate five runs in the seventh to break open a 2-2 tie. TALLAHASSEE, FL – A five-run seventh inning by Virginia Tech (15-13, 6-4) was too much to overcome Friday night as No. 9 Florida State (20-7, 7-3) fell to the Hokies 8-3 in the opening game of a three-game series on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

The two schools exchanged a pair of runs through the first three innings before both starting pitchers found their stride and really settled in over the fourth, fifth and sixth innings.

The Hokies then took advantage of a few walks and a couple misplays in the seventh to break the game open en route to their third straight victory over the Seminoles dating back to 2013.

“Things got away from us,” said Florida State head coach Mike Martin on the five-run seventh for the Hokies. “Big innings normally occur as a result of an error or walks and we contributed to both of those areas in that inning.”

Virginia Tech started the inning with back-to-back base hits from Mac Caples and Andrew Mogg off FSU starter Boomer Biegalski. After a sac-bunt moved both runners 90 feet, Biegalski unleashed a wild pitch to score Caples and give the Hokies a 3-2 lead.

Martin then went to the bullpen and called on Dylan Silva, who walked the first two batters that he faced before issuing an RBI single through the right side to Alex Perez. Brendon Hayden then recorded a sac-fly followed by a two-run double to the gap in right center by Erik Payne to break the game wide open.

Virginia Tech starting pitcher Sean Keselica worked 7.0 strong innings allowing two runs on four hits as he walked four and struck out nine to move to 4-1 on the year.

“That guy threw really well tonight,” said Chris Marconcini. “He kept us off-balanced all game.”

Chris Monaco got the Hokies out a jam in the eighth recording the final six outs to preserve the win.

“There’s not really a whole lot I can say but that was basically a game you just tip your hat to the other club,” added Martin. “They certainly played a beautiful ballgame. Keselica pitched extremely well. They got good relief pitching. It’s a credit to them; they did a very good job.”

Biegalski (2-2) suffered the loss after giving up four runs on seven hits in 6.1 innings. The sophomore right hander walked just one and struck out five as he worked into the seventh inning for the sixth straight outing.

Marconcini paced the offense on Friday night with two hits including an RBI double in the eighth. DJ Stewart reached base on three of his five plate appearances recording an RBI single in the first and walks in the third and seventh innings. Danny De La Calle connected on his fourth home run of the season in the second taking a 1-0 offering from Keselica out of the park to right field.

The Seminoles attempted a late comeback in the eighth after Stewart and Quincy Nieporte opened the inning with a walk and hit-by-pitch, respectively, off Luke Scherzer. Monaco entered and gave-up an RBI double to Marconcini before shutting the door on the Seminoles with a pair of strikeouts and a pop out.

Marconcini was robbed of a hit in the third after a spectacular diving catch in right field by Rahiem Cooper. With Stewart and Nieporte aboard after back-to-back walks to open the inning, Marconcini laced a line drive to right that Cooper made a great grab on to save at least one run. Keselica would get out of the inning without any damage done recording a pair of strikeouts.

“The big play in the game was the play their right fielder made when we were first and second, nobody out,” said Martin. “Marconcini hit that ball to right field and that guy made a beautiful catch. We ended up not getting anything that inning. That was certainly a big play.”

Noles Ride 11-Run Eighth to Even Series with Virginia Tech.
The Seminoles score 18 of their 19 runs over the final three innings.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 9 Florida State (21-7, 8-3) used an 11-run eighth inning to break open a one-run ballgame as the Seminoles defeated Virginia Tech (15-13, 6-5) 19-9 on Saturday night in front of a season-high crowd of 6,348 to even the weekend series on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

“You can look at the score as an occasional observer and think that the game was over early and that we cruised but nothing could be further from the truth,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “I was very pleased with the way the guys continued to battle even though with a four-run lead you can never relax especially against a team like Virginia Tech. We didn’t relax; they just kept getting after it.”

The Seminoles scored 18 of their 19 runs over the final three innings to snap a three-game losing streak to the Hokies. The 19 runs are the second most scored by Florida State in the series and the most since plating 25 runs in Blacksburg back on May 10, 1990.

“We got a couple of breaks but the main thing I was impressed with our patience,” added Martin. “Ten walks, that is really good discipline. It’s not easy when you are competing in this league. To accomplish what we did tonight, I am very proud of our guys.”

After Virginia Tech scored three runs in the top of the eighth to cut the deficit to 8-7, Florida State exploded in the bottom half of the inning scoring a season-high 11 runs sending 16 batters to the plate. The Seminoles registered six hits, five walks and two hit-by-pitches in the inning as the Hokies did not record an out until the 11th batter of the inning.

It marked the first time the Seminoles have scored 10 or more runs in an inning since plating 11 in the fifth inning against Ohio State in the 2009 NCAA Tournament Tallahassee Regional.

Florida State out hit Virginia Tech 15-11 on Saturday night as John Sansone paced the Seminoles tying a career-high with three hits. The junior second baseman reached base on all six plate appearances recording singles in his first three at-bats. He was then hit by a pitch twice and walked in his final at-bat of the night.

Danny De La Calle also had three hits to tie a career-high. Hank Truluck added two hits and three RBI, while Taylor Walls, Dylan Busby and Josh Delph all finished with two RBI in the win.

FSU starter Drew Carlton did not factor into the decision on Saturday night but worked into the seventh inning for the first time in his young career. The freshman right hander finished his outing with nine strikeouts in 6.1 innings of work as he was charged with four runs, three earned, on five hits. All nine of Carlton’s strikeouts came after the first 11 batters that he faced.

“I was very, very pleased with his perseverance,” said Martin on Carlton’s outing Saturday night. “He stayed tough and gave us six full. Tonight, he had everything going. He was throwing the slider and of course the fastball to both sides of the plate. It was a very good outing for him.”

Dylan Silva (5-1) earned the win as he came in relief of Carlton in the seventh to get the final two outs. Taylor Folsom, Alec Byrd, Billy Strode and Will Zirzow all saw action in relief in game two of the series.

Virginia Tech’s Aaron McGarity (2-3) suffered the loss as the Hokie starter gave up five runs, three earned, on seven hits in 6.0 plus innings of work.

Brendon Hayden paced Virginia Tech’s offensive attack with three hits on the night. Alex Perez and Andrew Mogg added two hits each in the loss.

Walk-Off Win Carries Noles to Series Victory Over Virginia Tech.
An errant throw with two outs in the ninth gives the Noles their first walk-off victory of the year.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 9 Florida State (22-7, 9-3) clinched the weekend series against Virginia Tech (15-14, 6-6) with a 6-5, walk-off victory on Sunday afternoon on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium as the Seminoles scored two runs on two outs in the bottom of the ninth.

Florida State once again used another late inning surge as the Seminoles scored five of their six runs on Sunday in the seventh and ninth innings.

“I’m seeing a lot of desire on this club,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “They feel a part of a family. This club is playing opportunistic baseball; they are playing hard and truly pulling for each other. There are clear signs that this family will battle you for 27 outs and that’s all a coach can ask for.”

Trailing by four heading into the seventh, the Seminoles cut the deficit to one plating three runs off Virginia Tech starter Jon Woodcock. FSU knocked the Hokie starter out of the game following a one-out single to left by John Sansone.

Luke Scherzer (1-2) entered and gave up back-to-back RBI singles to DJ Stewart and Quincy Nieporte before pinch hitter Hayden Kelly drew a two-out, bases load walk to bring the Noles within one at 5-4.

Chris Marconcini started the ninth inning rally drawing a one out walk from Scherzer and then was replaced by pinch runner Nick Graganella. After a Dylan Busby single put runners at first and second, Kelly moved Graganella to third on a fly out to center for the second out of the inning. Gage West was then hit by a pitch to load the bases for Josh Delph.

The senior outfielder provided the game-winning heroics hitting a 2-2 slider slowly to second forcing Hokie second baseman Alex Perez to charge the ball. With Delph running hard, Perez rushed his throw and sailed the ball high over the out reached glove of first baseman Brendon Hayden.

“Marconcini was the key to that inning in the great at-bat that he had to draw a walk and get on first base,” said Martin. “Our young men played the game hard, got some breaks and turned it into a very important win for us.

“Josh does run well. It was not a routine play. It was just one of those things that happened in our favor.”

“He made a good pitch, had a good little slider that he kept going to,” said Delph. “I didn’t put a good swing on it but put it in the right place, ran it out and good things happened. I was going 100 percent and see what happens. I thought there was a chance and that it was going to be a tough play.”

Graganella crossed the plate with the tying run and Busby would score from second on the play to give the Seminoles their first walk-off victory of the year and first since John Nogowski’s ninth inning single against Minnesota on May 3, 2014.

“We live off those last four innings of a game and really feed off of each other,” added Delph. “The game is never over until it’s completely done.”

Delph, who entered the game in the eighth inning, finished the afternoon 2-for-2 with an RBI. Sansone and Nieporte joined Delph with two hits in the win. Marconcini drew three walks for the fourth time this year, while Busby had two. FSU finished with eight walks on the afternoon.

Virginia Tech scored all five runs on Sunday off FSU starter Cobi Johnson. Perez got the Hokies off to a good start launching a two-out solo shot to right in the first. Virginia Tech then took advantage of a throwing error in the third which led to a pair of unearned runs off Johnson. Sean Keselica laced a two-out, two-run single to right to give VT a 3-0 lead.

After the Noles scored a run in the fourth on a sac-fly by Busby to cut the deficit to 3-1, Virginia Tech answered with two runs in the top of the fifth to take a 5-1 advantage. Perez and Hayden open the inning with a single and walk, respectively, off Johnson. Perez would score on a sac-fly by Keselica, while Andrew Mogg brought home Hayden on a two-out double down the line in left.

Alec Byrd replaced Johnson and got the final out in the fifth with a strikeout. Byrd did a nice job in relief on Sunday keeping the Hokie offense in-check for 3.1 scoreless innings. The sophomore southpaw allowed just two hits and no walks while striking out five.

“He pitched very well for us,” said Martin on the performance by Byrd. “It was a big lift for us. Byrd gave us a big, big opportunity by holding them down and giving us a chance to get back into it. That was a huge win for us.”

Billy Strode (1-0) worked around a hit-by-pitch, issued by Byrd, and an infield single in the ninth by striking out the side to earn his first win of the season.

Johnson gave the Seminoles 4.2 innings on Sunday as the freshman right hander walked three and struck out five in earning a no decision.

“Cobi pitched pretty dog gone good,” added Martin. “Couple of mistakes they turned into runs, but Cobi pitched well. And Billy did a nice job for us in the ninth.”

Noles Drop Gators in Jacksonville.
John Sansone records a career-high four hits in the win Tuesday night.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - No. 8 Florida State (23-7) evened the season series with intra-state rival and fifth-ranked Florida (23-7) on Tuesday evening with an 8-3 victory in front of a packed house of 8,306 at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville in the second installment of the Share A Little Sunshine Showdown.

With the win, the Seminoles snapped a five-game losing streak to the Gators, while FSU improved to 6-3 all-time against UF in Jacksonville.

"Bryant Holtmann was outstanding," Florida State head coach Mike Martin. "He really gave us what we needed. We were fortunate early; we got some key hits, balls that were just out of the reach (of the Gator defenders) but I am just very proud of this club for getting it done.

"This is a great venue, a great crowd; it's good for college baseball in our great state."

Florida State out hit Florida 13-6 on Tuesday night marking the most hits by the Seminoles on the road this year. John Sansone led the Seminole offense with a career-high four hits as the junior second baseman reached base on all five plate appearances recording three singles, a double and a walk with the bases loaded in the seventh.

"John is slowing everything down; the game is not coming at him so fast, he's seeing the ball longer," said Martin. "He's having the game come to him instead of doing too much."

Josh Delph finished with two hits for the second straight game, while Danny De La Calle collected two hits for his team leading 10th multi-hit game of the year. The senior catcher drove in two and scored twice recording a solo home run in the fourth for his fifth round tripper of the year.

Making his first career start against Florida, Bryant Holtmann turned in 5.0 strong innings as he allowed just one run on five hits to move to 4-1 on the year. The senior southpaw struck out three and did not issue a walk in his fourth start this year. At one point in the game, Holtmann retired nine straight Gator hitters.

"Holtmann was the key, to pitch like he did and to turn it over to Dylan," said Martin. "He was excellent, one of his better outings as a Seminole."

Dylan Silva worked the final 4.0 innings to earn his first save of the year. The junior lefty got the Noles out of a jam in the sixth as the Gators had two on and no outs with FSU leading 5-1. Silva came on and left both runners stranded recording a pair of fly outs and a strikeout as FSU maintained its four-run cushion.

Silva retired the first nine batters he faced before issuing a walk to Harrison Bader in the ninth. He finished his outing allowing two runs on a hit as he walked one and struck out five to tie a career-high.

"Dylan finished it for us and that was so important," said Martin. "He really picked us up tonight."

The Noles grabbed the early lead courtesy of a two-out RBI single by Hank Truluck in the second. Delph kept the inning alive with a two-out double to the wall in right and Truluck followed two pitches later dropping a bloop single to right to bring home Delph for the first run of the game and 1-0 Seminole advantage.

The Seminoles pushed their lead to 2-0 with a run in the third. Sansone recorded his second hit in as many plate appearances with a sharp infield single. He advanced to second on a wild pitch and scored on an RBI double down the line in right by DJ Stewart.

Florida cut the deficit in half in the fourth on a solo home run by Josh Tobias. The senior third baseman took a 2-0 pitch from Holtmann just inside the left field foul pole for his third home run of the season.

Florida State pushed its lead back to two at 3-1 with a solo shot of its own in the bottom of the fourth. With two outs in the inning, De La Calle deposited a 1-0 pitch from Florida starter Alex Faedo (1-1) out of the park to left for his fifth round tripper of the season.

The Noles extended their lead to 5-1 on a pair of two-out RBI singles by Dylan Busby and Delph in the fifth. Sansone opened the inning with his third hit of the night as his pop fly dropped in front of the mound around four Gator defenders for an infield base hit. After a Quincy Nieporte single put runners at the corners, Busby then laced a two-out RBI single to left followed by a Delph RBI single to right.

FSU added three more runs in the seventh to take a commanding 8-1 lead. The Seminoles registered only one hit in the inning but took advantage of four Gator walks. Busby and Delph led off the inning with back-to-back walks off Brett Morales. After a sac-bunt by Truluck moved both runners 90 feet, De La Calle answered with an RBI single to left. Sansone brought home the second run of the inning drawing a walk with the bases loaded, while Stewart plated the third run on a sac-fly to center.

The Gators added two in the ninth off Silva on a pair of RBI groundouts by Buddy Reed and JJ Schwarz.

No. 8 FSU Snaps Pack's Seven Game Win Streak With 3-2 Victory.
Miller's two-run single in the eighth seals the opener for the Seminoles.

RALEIGH, NC - In the opening game of a series between two ACC foes that had combined to win 13 of their last 14 ballgames, the eighth-ranked FSU baseball team (24-7, 10-3) used strong pitching and a timely late inning hit to down NC State (18-10, 6-6) 3-2 Thursday in Raleigh. Despite the Seminoles committing five errors, Boomer Biegalski, Alec Byrd and Billy Strode came through on the mound allowing just one earned run in the victory.

"Boomer went out there and took the bull by the horns," said Mike Martin. "He got it done.

"He is a great competitor and he has had absolutely no luck this year. Numbers are what it's about with him. Not W's and L's. His numbers are very impressive."

Biegalski pitched 6.1 innings and allowed two runs, of which only one was earned. The sophomore spread out 10 hits while striking out five and walking just one batter before the bullpen came in and shut the Wolfpack down the rest of the way. Byrd pitched two-thirds of an inning to pick up the win and move to 4-0 while Strode closed out the final two innings to pick up his ninth save of the season without allowing a base runner.

The turning point in the game came in a wild bottom of the sixth that started with a leadoff homer by NC State's Jake Armstrong to tie that game at 1-1. Two errors and a bunt single followed allowing the Wolfpack to load the bases with nobody out. Biegalski got the next two batters to fly out on just three pitches before ending the threat just two pitches later on a liner to center.

"(Mike) Bell did a great job calling that ballgame tonight," said Martin. "To get us out of that jam and make critical pitches at other times, it was maybe one that we so called backed into. It's called baseball. You just don't know."

For the Seminoles, the biggest hit of the night was delivered by third baseman Darren Miller with the Noles trailing 2-1 in the eighth. The freshman from Key West, Fla. came through with the bases loaded and two outs as he sent a single into the gap in right plating the winning runs.

After committing five errors in the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh, the Seminoles didn't allow a runner to reach base in the final two innings and took the lead for good.

"The (defense) has been a concern but there is only so much you can do," said Martin. "If we were making fundamental mistakes…I mean the ball that got by our centerfielder, I am still trying to figure out how that ball got by him. There were some things we did tonight that we just can't do. Some things…not throwing the ball in on the fly ball…just like 'he's not going to run'…throw the ball in. But it was a great win. It truly was a great win."

With the win, FSU improved to 6-0 on the season in one-run games and despite committing five errors for the third time this season, FSU is 2-1 in those games.

"This ball club is going to fight you for 27 outs. It makes all of our coaches very proud to be a part of it."

Carlton’s Gem Secures Series For No. 8 Seminole Baseball Freshman right-hander allows just four hits over eight innings in FSU’s 1-0 win.

RALEIGH, NC – When FSU lost star pitcher Mike Compton to injury head coach Mike Martin wasn’t sure who would step up and fill that void, but on Friday night Martin said freshman Drew Carlton made a case to continue to pitch on weekends for the eighth-ranked Seminoles (25-7, 11-3). Carlton went eight innings allowing just four hits and no runs as he made a 1-0 first inning lead stand up as FSU defeated NC State (18-11, 6-7) 1-0 to secure the series win.

Carlton threw 106 pitches and walked just one batter while striking out four in the longest outing of his young career. For the second night in a row, the Seminole pitchers led the way against NC State as Billy Strode came in and shutdown NC State in the ninth to pick up his 10th save of the season.

“I had my location working for me today,” said Carlton. “I didn’t have my best speed. I just hit my spots, let them hit it and let my defense work behind me.

“It was definitely a good feeling to be out there and throw up zeroes for eight innings. I felt good. I felt relaxed. Just felt in my comfort zone out there.”

FSU needed the solid pitching from Carlton and Storde as the Seminoles were only able to plate one run and that came in the first inning when DJ Stewart scored from first on a single to right center by Quincy Nieporte.

“Obviously (the difference in the game tonight) was Drew Carlton and Billy Strode,” said Martin. “We got a great hustle play out of DJ Stewart in the first inning. Who would have ever thought one run would hold up but it was a well-played baseball game and I am just very, very…we are very fortunate to get this one.”

It didn’t seem like one run would hold up early in the game. After FSU took the lead, NC State looked like it would strike right back by loading the bases with just one out in the bottom of the first but Carlton needed just four pitches to get out of the jam and cruised the rest of the way.

“I just settled down and decided to let my defense work for me instead of trying to overpower hitters,” said Carlton. “Let them make the mistakes and not me.”

“What Drew possesses that is very, not unusual, but it’s not something that you expect from a guy who goes and pitches on the road, he pitches with such composure,” said Martin. “He is very poised. He locates well and he’s not one to get flustered if something doesn’t go right, just very pleased with the way he approaches his position.”

After the early NC State threat Carlton allowed just three hits through the next seven innings before giving way to Strode in the ninth. The senior closer retired all three batters he faced picking up his second save in two games in Raleigh.

The FSU defense, after a five error performance in the opener, committed an error in the first and then played mistake free baseball the rest of the way to hold on to the win.

“We got excellent pitching, good defense and it was a very good win for our baseball team,” said Martin.

No. 8 FSU Baseball Falls 11-7 In Series Finale At NC State Six different Seminoles knock in runs in 11-7 loss to the Wolfpack.

RALEIGH, NC – The eighth-ranked FSU baseball proved it wasn’t just satisfied with a series win on the road in the ACC on Saturday. Despite playing from behind all day in extremely windy conditions, the Seminoles (25-8, 11-4) continually battled back in the finale versus NC State (19-11, 7-7) before falling 11-7.

“I was just very proud of the way we fought,” said head coach Mike Martin. “It was an unusual condition day but I am very, very pleased with the fight our team showed.”

FSU fell behind early in the game on Saturday after a two-run first put the ‘Pack in the lead but the Seminoles fought back from 2-0, 3-1, 5-2, 7-3 and 11-4 deficits to keep the game within reach for most of the afternoon.

Even when down by seven runs heading into the eighth, FSU showed fight adding three runs in the top of the eighth but the Seminoles just couldn’t keep up with NC State’s offensive production throughout the game.

Six different Seminoles drove in runs in the game with four of the RBIs coming from the top five hitters in the line-up. Josh Delph had three hits on the day and was joined by DJ Stewart, John Sansone and Danny De La Calle as Seminoles who recorded both multi-hit games and an RBI.

After two extremely strong performances from the Seminole pitching staff on Thursday and Friday, NC State found success in the finale scoring 11 runs on 19 hits, four of which were homeruns.

Cobi Johnson (3-2) took the loss for FSU as the freshman right-hander gave up three runs in 2.1 innings pitched but overall all three of the Seminoles that took the mound through the first seven innings were unable to keep the Wolfpack off the scoreboard.

Even with the loss on Saturday, the Seminoles have won all five ACC series this season and FSU has now won eight of its last 10 games following back-to-back losses to top 10 squads Florida and Virginia in mid-March.

“I can’t say enough about how our team played and getting the job done on the road,” said Martin. “Anytime you win two out of three on the road you have to be very happy and I am very happy.”

Holtmann, Noles Blank FGCU 5-0.
The senior lefty works eight shutout innings to earn his fifth win of the season.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Behind a career-high 8.0 shutout innings from senior Bryant Holtmann, No. 8 Florida State (26-8) blanked Florida Gulf Coast (16-16-1) 5-0 Tuesday evening on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

"Well obviously Bryant Holtmann was the story of this ball game," Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. "It was a great outing for him and Byrdie came in and did a nice job to close things out. It was an impressive win, I mean he gives up seven hits, walks two, that's dog gone impressive."

Holtmann (5-1) turned in arguably his best outing as a Seminole scattering seven hits over 8.0 innings as he struck out six to earn his fifth win of the season. The Albers, Ill., native worked into the ninth for the first time in his career but left to a standing ovation in front of the Seminole faithful after issuing a walk to Tyler Selesky to open the inning.

"We wanted very much for him to have the opportunity to finish it but he had thrown more pitches (100 on the night) than he has thrown as a Seminole in four years," said Martin. "Had he not walked the guy, had he gotten an out, he would have had a chance to pitch to the next guy."

Alec Byrd preserved FSU's third shutout of the season and second in the last three games getting a fly out and then a groundball double play - the Seminoles' fourth of the game - in the ninth to end the game.

"We turned four double plays tonight," added Martin. "It was a good night defensively; it was a good win for us. It was a very gratifying shutout tonight."

Holtmann faced the minimum through the first four innings recording double plays in the second and third innings to eliminate a single by Jake Noll to start the second and a one-out bunt single by Brady Anderson in the third.

After recording back-to-back strikeouts to start the fifth, FGCU registered three consecutive singles off Holtmann including a single through the left side by Anderson. Zach Spivey tried to score from second on the play but a terrific throw by DJ Stewart to Danny De La Calle at the plate was just in time to keep the shutout intact.

"He did a good job in the middle part of the innings of throwing his cutter, his change-up," said Martin. "His change-up was very impressive tonight, the best I've seen his change-up since he's been here."

All the offensive fireworks on Tuesday night came in the first two innings as Florida State scored one in the first and four in the second off FGCU starter Devin Smeltzer (1-3).

The first three Seminoles to the plate in the first reached as Josh Delph opened the frame with a double down the line in left. He scored one batter later on an RBI single to center by John Sansone.

De La Calle sparked FSU's four-run second with his second triple of the season. With Taylor Walls at first after starting the inning with a single to left center, the senior catcher followed with a smash to straight away center for an RBI triple. Delph plated a run with a single through the right side and scored on an RBI double off the wall in right by Stewart. Quincy Nieporte drove in Sansone, who reached on a hit-by-pitch, for the fourth and final run of the inning with a sac-fly to center.

Delph finished the night with three hits for the second straight game to tie a season-high. Stewart also tied a season-high with three hits as he finished a home run shy of the cycle. The junior left fielder recorded his first triple of the season and third of his career to start the bottom of the seventh.

The Seminoles suffer their first shutout of the season.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - A trio of Florida Gulf Coast pitchers combined for a seven-hit shutout on Wednesday afternoon as the Eagles (17-16-1) blanked No. 8 Florida State (26-9) 5-0 in game two of the mid-week series on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

After Florida State posted a 5-0 shutout to open the series on Tuesday night thanks to a career-high eight shutout innings turned in by Bryant Holtmann, FGCU's Nick Deckert (1-0) returned the favor by blanking the Seminoles over 5.1 innings on Wednesday. The Tallahassee, Fla., native allowed just three hits and three walks while striking out four to earn his first win of the season.

"It was just one of those games that you literally give the credit to the other club," Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. "They deserved to win; they played errorless baseball for two games. Ironically two 5-0 ball games; unfortunately we weren't in on but one of them."

Deckert gave up a base hit back up the middle to Josh Delph to start the bottom of the first but then settled into a groove before issuing back-to-back one-out singles by John Sansone and Quincy Nieporte in the sixth. The senior southpaw gave way to former Seminole Jordan Desguin who got the Eagles out of the jam by recording a strikeout and a fielder's choice groundout to retire the side.

"He was just moving the pitches around; he was hitting his spots and had control of the game the whole time," said Delph on Deckert's performance.

Desguin allowed two hits and a walk in 1.2 innings, while Adam Eggnatz worked a scoreless eighth and ninth inning to keep the shutout intact. It marked the first time this year that Florida State has been shutout.

"The main thing I would like to do is tip my hat to Nick Deckert and Jordan Desguin," said Martin. "Both young men we knew very well. Desguin started in our program three years ago. Deckert pitched at TCC. They both pitched extremely well."

Florida Gulf Coast scored a run in each of the first three innings on Wednesday to take an early 3-0 lead. The Eagles took advantage of an error in both the first and second innings to plate a run, while FGCU's third run of the game came on a solo shot off the bat of Nick Rivera.

Florida Gulf Coast's first three runs were charged to Jim Voyles (0-1), who was making his second start of the season for the Seminoles on Wednesday. The sophomore right hander allowed six hits in 2.1 innings as he walked one and struck out two.

FGCU added to its lead in the sixth without recording a hit. The Eagles took advantage of four walks and a passed ball in the inning to plate two runs and increase their lead to 5-0. Rivera picked up his second RBI of the afternoon drawing a walk with the bases loaded, while pinch hitter Kyle Gilbert scored from third on a passed ball.

The Seminoles squandered a golden opportunity to plate their first run of the afternoon in the seventh leaving the bases loaded. Taylor Walls opened the inning with a single off Desguin and moved to third on a double to right by Gage West. Delph then drew a two-out walk before Desguin got out of the jam by getting Sansone to fly out to left.

Florida State would not go quietly in the ninth as Walls and Hank Truluck opened the inning with consecutive singles through the left side, but Eggnatz retired the next three batters that he faced to end the game.

"You just have to keep grinding," said Sansone following Wednesday's loss. "Games like this are going to happen as the season goes on. You can't really dwell on it; you just have to keep moving forward."

Dylan Silva, Will Zirzow and Ed Voyles all turned in solid work in relief. Silva struck out three in 1.1 innings, while Zirzow and Ed Voyles each work a scoreless inning.

FSU Drops Series Opener to Notre Dame.
Dylan Busby accounts for both of FSU’s runs on Friday night with a two-run home run in the second.

SOUTH BEND, IN – No. 8 Florida State (26-10, 11-5) dropped the opening game of a three-game series to Notre Dame (22-10, 7-9) on Friday falling to the Fighting Irish 5-2 on a blistery cold and windy evening inside Frank Eck Stadium.

“There are never any excuses but I don’t know when I have played in conditions like this since I’ve been at Florida State,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “With the weather being as cold as it was and the wind gusting as much as 30 mph, fly balls were going out to right field like I have never seen. But such is life, you move on to tomorrow.”

Dylan Busby accounted for all of FSU’s runs on Friday night connecting on a two-run home run to right in the top of the second for his sixth round tripper of the season.

Boomer Biegalski (2-3) suffered the loss as the sophomore right hander allowed three runs on five hits as he struck out six and walked a career-high five batters.

“I hate to see a great outing by Boomer go by the boards,” added Martin. “He pitched very well but we also faced a guy that was the ACC Pitcher of the Week and he lived up to his reputation. He challenged us and did a good job.”

Notre Dame starter and reigning ACC Pitcher of the Week Ryan Smoyer (5-0) went 7.0 strong innings to pick-up his fifth win of the season. Smoyer scattered five hits and walked just one Seminole hitter over seven innings, while finishing the evening with a career-high six strikeouts.

Sean Guenther recorded the final six outs of the game, five on strikeouts, to earn his second save of the season.

“Everybody has to play in the same conditions,” said Martin. “There’s no way we are going to use that as an excuse. We just got to understand it’s called baseball and it was a game when a key hit was needed they got the key hit. It was just one of those happenings that you live with and go to the next day.”

Notre Dame out hit Florida State 7-5 on the night as five of the Irish’s seven hits came on two outs while all five runs were scored with two outs.

After Busby’s two-run shot gave the Seminoles an early 2-0 lead, the Irish came right back with a little long ball action of their own in the third to even the game at 2-2. Kyle Fiala drew a walk to keep the inning alive for Cavan Biggio who took a 2-2 pitch from Biegalski over the fence in right for a two-run home run.

Notre Dame grabbed its first lead of the evening in the fourth on three consecutive two-out hits from Lane Richards, Zak Kutsulis and Nick McCarty.

McCarty’s single back up the middle brought home Richards to give the Fighting Irish a 3-2 advantage.

Ryan Lidge then came through with a two-run single in the seventh off Alec Byrd to give Notre Dame a three-run cushion at 5-2.

The Seminoles threatened in the eighth loading the bases on a single by Josh Delph and a pair of hit-by-pitches to John Sansone and Quincy Nieporte. But Guenther would get Notre Dame out of the jam striking out Darren Miller and Dylan Busby to retire the side.

Noles Drop Series to Fighting Irish, Fall in Game Two 4-1.
The Seminoles held to just four hits in dropping their first ACC series of the season.

SOUTH BEND, IN – For the second straight day, the bats fell silent in South Bend as No. 8 Florida State (26-11, 11-6) managed just four hits on Saturday afternoon in falling to Notre Dame (23-10, 8-9) 4-1 in front of a crowd of 1,109 inside Frank Eck Stadium.

The Fighting Irish once again got an outstanding performance from their starting pitcher as this time Brandon Bielak kept the Seminole bats in check for 7.1 innings in game two. The freshman right hander allowed just one run on four hits as he walked two and struck out five to move to 4-1 on the year.

“The main thing you have to do is credit their outstanding pitcher Bielak, he did a great job of mixing his pitches,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “He pitched in and out extremely well, in fact one of the most impressive performances I have seen going inside over and over and we never adjusted.”

Bielak retired the first 10 batters that he faced on Saturday, and after giving up back-to-back hits in the fourth which led to FSU’s only run of the game, he allowed just two hits over the next four innings.

“Bielak was at 91 pitches in the seventh inning which is very unusual for us,” added Martin. “But you just tip your hat to them they did an outstanding job.”

Sean Guenther recorded the final five outs to earn his third save of the season and second in as many days.

FSU starter Drew Carlton (2-2) gave the Seminoles 6.0 solid innings as the freshman right gave up two runs on nine hits as he finished with two walks and two strikeouts.

“I thought Drew had a good outing, he has pitched very well all year for us,” said Martin. “It was just their ability to get the timely hit with runners in scoring position today.”

Dylan Silva was charged with two runs on a hit and a walk in an inning of work, while Jim Voyles faced the minimum in the eighth inning registering a pair of strikeouts.

The Fighting Irish out hit the Seminoles 11-4 on Saturday as 10 of Notre Dame’s 11 hits were singles. Four different Seminoles picked up a hit in the loss including doubles by DJ Stewart and Chris Marconcini. The loss was the first ACC series setback for the Seminoles this year.

Florida State has now lost three straight games for the first time this year. After putting together a recent stretch of five straight wins and eight victories in their last nine games, the Seminoles have now dropped four of their last five.

“It’s just the way baseball is, we play a lot of games and you are going to go through stretches in which things don’t seem to go your way and I think that’s what we are experiencing right now,” said Martin. “But tomorrow is another day, so we will forget about this one and put our attention to Sunday.”

Ryan Lidge and Zak Kutsulis paced the Notre Dame offense with three hits each, while Ryan Bull added two hits and an RBI.

Notre Dame grabbed the early lead on Saturday plating a run in the bottom of the first on an RBI single by Bull. For the second straight game, Mac Hudgins led off the bottom of the first with a walk. He moved to third on a single by Kyle Fiala and scored two batters later on Bull’s single to right.

After Bielak retired the first 10 batters that we faced, the Seminoles registered their first base runner of the afternoon when John Sansone singled through the right side. The junior second baseman moved to third on the very next pitch as Stewart dropped a double just inside the line in left. Sansone would plate FSU’s only run of the game on an RBI groundout to third by Quincy Nieporte to even the game at 1-1.

The Irish answered right back with a run in the bottom of the fourth to retake the lead for good at 2-1. Notre Dame opened the inning with back-to-back singles by Robert Youngdahl and Lidge to put runners at the corners with nobody out. After Lane Richards lined out to short, Kutsulis laced a single to center to bring home Youngdahl.

Notre Dame added to its lead in the seventh on a two-out, two-run double by Lidge. After Silva recorded two quick outs to start the inning, the junior southpaw hit a batter then issued a walk before Lidge came through with a double just inside the bag at third to give the Irish a 4-1 advantage.

The Seminoles squandered an opportunity to cut into the deficit in the eighth after the first two batters to the plate reached on a walk to Taylor Walls and a single by Danny De La Calle. After Bielak got Josh Delph to pop out to short, Notre Dame went to the bullpen and brought on Guenther, who got the Irish out of jam recording a strikeout and fielder’s choice groundout to end the threat.

FSU Falls 2-1 to Notre Dame.
The Seminoles suffer their first ACC weekend series sweep since 2013.

SOUTH BEND, IN – No. 8 Florida State (26-12, 11-7) was held to just one run for the second straight game in dropping the series finale 4-1 to Notre Dame (24-10, 9-9) on Sunday afternoon inside Frank Eck Stadium.

“This was definitely a series that you really have to tip your hat to Notre Dame,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “They pitched well and played solid defense. There was one error made by them in three ball games. Give them all the credit, they did a great job.”

Florida State suffered its first weekend sweep in ACC play since dropping three at Virginia in 2013. It also marked FSU’s first four-game losing streak since 2013 when the Seminoles fell to North Carolina in the last game of the regular season and then all three games in the ACC Tournament in Durham, N.C. FSU has now lost five of its last six games.

The Seminoles could not get the bats going on a weekend in which the Notre Dame pitching staff held Florida State to just four runs on 15 hits in 27 innings.

“I don’t know if we got 15 hits in three ball games,” added Martin. “They did a great job plain and simple all weekend long.”

Mike Compton (1-1) suffered the loss despite giving the Seminoles 5.0 solid innings in making his first start since throwing a complete game against Boston College on March 6. The redshirt junior was charged with two runs on four hits as he struck out six and did not walk a batter.

Alec Byrd and Billy Strode pitched well in relief combining for three scoreless and hitless innings. Byrd worked 2.0 innings as he walked one and struck out three, while Strode retired the side in the eighth on two strikeouts and a groundout.

Four Notre Dame pitchers combined to limit FSU to just one run on six hits as they issued just one walk while striking out five. Connor Hale (1-0) earned the win working 3.2 innings in relief allowing a run on three hits. Brad Bass, who made his first career start on Sunday, worked 1.1 innings as he faced six batters after throwing 30 pitches.

Scott Tully picked up the final two outs of the game striking out Taylor Walls and Hank Truluck to earn the save.

Notre Dame struck first on Sunday opening the bottom of the fourth with back-to-back doubles by Kyle Fiala and Cavan Biggio to give the Fighting Irish a 1-0 lead.

The Irish extended their lead in the fifth on an opposite field solo shot by Zak Kutsulis. The Notre Dame first baseman took the first pitch from Compton out of the park to left for his second home run of the season to push Notre Dame’s lead to 2-0.

Florida State pushed across its first and only run of the game in the sixth on an RBI single by DJ Stewart but could not manage more after loading the bases with no outs. The Seminoles loaded the bases off Hale as the first three batters to the plate reached on an infield single by Danny De La Calle, a walk to Josh Delph and a fielder’s choice sacrifice bunt by John Sansone. Stewart then laced a single to right to bring home De La Calle to cut the Notre Dame lead to 2-1.

The Fighting Irish called on Evy Ruibal out of bullpen, who got Notre Dame out of the jam in the sixth by getting Quincy Nieporte to ground into a 5-2-3 double play and then Chris Marconcini to pop out in foul territory to first to retire the side.

Nieporte's Walk-Off Home Run Gives FSU 4-3 Win Over Florida.
The Seminoles hit solo home runs to capture the season victory over the Gators.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Quincy Nieporte put the finishing touches on a series victory over intra-state rival Florida Tuesday night with a towering walk-off home run to left center to open the bottom of the 12th as No. 13 Florida State (27-12) defeated the seventh-ranked Gators (28-10) 4-3 on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

In what finished as the longest game in series history, the Seminoles connected on four solo home runs to capture their fourth series victory over the Gators in the last six seasons.

The win also snapped Florida State's four-game losing streak, while it marked FSU's first win over the Gators at home since 2011. It was also the first-ever extra inning victory over UF in six tries (1-5).

"Our guys really showed from the beginning of BP today a little something that I hadn't seen all year, they weren't happy," Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. "This ball game tonight is certainly not going to make or break our season but it's certainly important for a young club like this against a team that is extremely good. They did a heck of a job and it was a good ball game."

Dylan Busby recorded his first career multi-home run game with solo shots in the second and fourth innings. Chris Marconcini unloaded on a solo shot to right in the eighth to tie the game at three before Nieporte came through with the game-winning smash in the bottom of the 12th.

"I can't recall the last time I saw four solo home runs," added Martin said. "It was a heck of a win. A lot of solid baseball tonight; I am just happy for our young men."

Nieporte did not waste any time in the bottom of the 12th taking the first pitch from Frank Rubio (0-1) out of the park for his third home run of the season and FSU's second walk-off win in 2015. The win on Tuesday night came in front of 6,634 - the eighth largest crowd in the school history.

"It was a fastball, a lot of anger in that one," said Nieporte. "This (win) gives us a lot of momentum. After struggling a little last week, this is a huge win, kind of kicks us in the rear getting us going in the right direction.

"I was having the game to forget obviously until the end. Everyone came up to me and gave me the confidence and stuck with me and it was a real good feeling. It's like a story; it actually did come down to me, which you would never imagine."

"I think there will be some enjoyment for him," said Martin on Nieporte's game-winning heroics. "He is a great competitor. He is rough on himself and that is something he's got to calm down. Just goes to show you how different our game is; he did not have good swings really all night. He had one real good swing, thank God for that one."

Billy Strode (2-0) earned the win after working a season-high 4.0 shutout innings. The senior southpaw scattered three hits and two walks, while striking out three. The senior from Parkland, Fla., worked around a two-out bases loaded jam in the 12th after getting behind in the count to Josh Tobias. But after two foul balls, Strode got Tobias to line out to John Sansone at second to retire the side.

"What do you say about Billy Strode, 69 pitches, the most he has thrown all year," said Martin. "(He) Walked over to me in the 11th and said right dead in my face 'I'm ok.' He goes back out there for the 12th and gets us back in the dugout."

Bryant Holtmann, who was making his second start of the season against the Gators, did not factor into the decision after giving up three runs on eight hits. The senior from Albers, Ill., finished with two strikeouts and did not walk a batter for the second time this year against Florida.

Dylan Silva gave the Seminoles 2.2 scoreless innings in relief as he faced the minimum striking out two.

Florida State opened the scoring on Tuesday with the first of Busby's two home runs. The freshman third baseman took the first pitch he saw from UF starter Shaun Anderson out of the park to left center for his seventh home run of the season and an early 1-0 Seminole lead.

Florida answered right back with two runs off Holtmann in the third. The Gators recorded back-to-back two out hits from Harrison Bader and Peter Alonso to grab its first lead of the evening at 2-1.

The Seminoles squandered a golden opportunity in the third leaving the bases loaded with one out. Josh Delph got things going with a one-out single through the right side followed by a hit-by-pitch to Sansone and a walk to DJ Stewart. Florida reliever Danny Young was able to get out of the jam by getting Nieporte to pop out to short and Marconcini to groundout to first to end the threat.

Busby tied the game at 2-2 in the fourth with his second home run in as many at-bats. This time the Sarasota, Fla., native snuck a 1-2 pitch from Eric Hanhold just inside the left field foul pole for his first career multi-home run game.

The Gators retook the lead with a solo shot of their own in the sixth. JJ Schwarz deposited a 1-0 pitch from Holtmann off the scoreboard in left for his team leading 13th round tripper of the season.

FSU left two in scoring position in the sixth after Marconcini and Taylor Walls registered singles to put runners at second and third. But Taylor Lewis recorded back-to-back strikeouts to maintain UF's one-run advantage.

Marconcini tied the game at 3-3 with one swing of the bat in the eighth. The redshirt senior hammered a 1-1 pitch from Lewis off the side of the FSU Circus Tent beyond the right field fence for his second home run as a Seminole.

The Seminoles put two more runners on in the inning on a single by Busby and a one-out hit-by-pitch to the pinch hitting Darren Miller. But Bobby Poyner got out of the inning by getting Danny De La Calle looking on strikes and then Delph to pop out in foul territory on an outstanding diving catch by Tobias.

The Gators would threaten in the ninth when Schwarz led off the inning with a double off the fence in right center. Strode would leave the runner stranded at second retiring the next three Florida hitters, while Florida State went in order in the bottom of the inning to force extra innings.

Marconcini, Stewart Pace Noles to Series Opening Win Over Pitt.
Both Marconcini and Stewart register a grand slam in Friday night’s victory.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – After opening the week with a win over Florida to snap a four-game slide, No. 13 Florida State (28-12, 12-7) showed a little power Friday night in posting a 15-2 victory over Pitt (14-22, 6-13) in the series opener to erase a four-game skid in ACC play.

DJ Stewart and Chris Marconcini combined for three home runs and 11 RBI as the Seminoles broke open a one-run ball game with an eight-run sixth inning en route to their largest margin of victory in league play this year.

“The score doesn’t really indicate how close the game was,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “We just happened to get eight in the sixth. You don’t expect that against a club as good as Pittsburgh. This happened to be our night.”

In the first meeting as conference foes, Florida State outhit Pitt 13-2. FSU’s 3-4-5 hitters combined for eight of the 13 hits as Stewart and Marconcini both registered a grand slam in the win. It marked the first time Florida State hit two grand slams in a game since Stephen Drew and Jerrod Brown accomplished the feat at Miami on April 14, 2002.

After giving up a run and a hit in the first and second innings, Boomer Biegalski (3-3) settled in nicely to earn his third win of the year. The sophomore right hander retired 12 of the last 13 batters that he faced including nine in a row before issuing a two-out walk in the fifth. Biegalski issued two walks on the night and recorded eight strikeouts marking the fifth time this year the Seminole starter has struck out at least eight batters.

“Boomer pitched very well,” added Martin. “His numbers were excellent; threw 103 pitches in six full. He got some run support that hasn’t exactly come his way every time out this year.”

Jim Voyles and Taylor Folsom faced the minimum over the final three innings to preserve the win. Voyles tied a career-high with three strikeouts in 2.0 shutout innings, while Folsom induced a groundball double play after giving up a walk and then a groundout to second to end the game.

Pitt ran out to the early lead in game one on a solo home run in the top of the first by Charles LeBlanc.

Florida State answered right back with three runs in the bottom of the first to take the lead for good on Friday night. Josh Delph and John Sansone opened the inning drawing back-to-back walks off Pitt starter T.J. Zeuch (3-5) with Stewart following with an RBI single through the right side. After a Quincy Nieporte groundball double play scored Sansone, Marconcini unloaded on his first of two home runs on the evening with a solo shot to left center.

The Panthers responded with a run in the second as Alex Kowalczyk was hit by a pitch to start the inning and scored on a two-out RBI single to center by Manny Pazos. The hit by Pazos’ would be the last hit of the ballgame for the Pitt Panthers.

Both starting pitchers seemed to settle in nicely after the top of the second as Biegalski and Zeuch combined to retire 23 of the next 26 batters they would face. The scoreless streak would come to an abrupt stop in the bottom of the sixth as the Seminoles sent 11 batters to the plate scoring eight times to take a commanding 11-2 lead.

After Marconcini and Dylan Busby recorded consecutive run scoring singles, Zeuch tallied back-to-back strikeouts before a fielding error at third opened the flood gates to a bunt single, walk and Stewart’s third career grand slam, and second in 2015, to straight away center.

Marconcini added his first career grand slam as a Seminole in the eighth taking a 2-2 pitch from Garrett Wrambel out of the park to right for his second round tripper of the evening and first career multi-home run game at Florida State.

Stewart finished the night a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate with five RBI, two runs scored and walk. Marconcini was 3-for-5 with three runs scored and a season-high six RBI.

Sansone’s Two Home Run Game Lifts Noles to 6-5 Win Over Pitt.
All six of FSU’s runs in game one of the doubleheader were courtesy of a home run.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – A two-run home run by John Sansone in the seventh gave the Seminoles the lead for good as No. 13 Florida State (29-12, 13-7) held off Pitt (14-23, 6-14) 6-5 in taking game one of a doubleheader on Saturday to clinch the weekend series on Mike Martin Field inside Dick Howser Stadium.

Sansone finished the afternoon with his first career multi-home run game connecting on a solo home run in the third and a two-run shot in the seventh. All six of Florida State’s runs on the afternoon came off a home run marking the second time in the last three games that FSU has used the long ball to generate all of its runs in a win (Tuesday vs Florida).

For the third straight game, Chris Marconcini left the yard connecting on a three-run shot in the first. Marconcini has now recorded four home runs over the last three games driving in 10 runs.

After regaining the lead for the second time in game one, Martin turned to Dylan Silva and Billy Strode, who retired all three batters they faced in the eighth and ninth innings, respectively, to seal the victory. Strode struck out the side to register his 11th save of the season.

“No doubt the Marconcini and Sansone home runs following two big innings by the University of Pittsburgh was a big lift for our club,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “But let’s don’t forget that Mike Compton went out and pitched very well for six innings and kept his team in the ball game.

“I thought Dylan Silva and Billy Strode pitched very well also. It was a well-pitched game but there is still a lot of baseball left to be played this year, we just have to keep getting better.”

Both teams got off to a hot start in game one combining for five runs in the first inning. Pitt plated a pair of runs on four hits as Jacob Wright and Charles Leblanc opened the game with back-to-back singles. After a sac-bunt advanced both runners 90 feet, Aaron Schnurbusch brought home the game’s first run on a bunt single to first. Alex Kowalczyk followed with an RBI groundout to short to give the Panthers an early 2-0 advantage.

The lead was short lived thanks to one swing of the bat by Marconcini in the bottom of the inning. The redshirt senior designated hitter took a 0-1 pitch from Pitt starter Aaron Sandefur out of the park to right for a three-run shot and his third home run of the weekend. After Josh Delph opened the inning with a hit-by-pitch, Quincy Nieporte kept the inning alive drawing a two-out walk.

Sansone added a solo shot in the third to give the Noles a 4-2 lead. The New Castle, Pa., native deposited a 1-0 pitch from Sandefur over the wall in left center for his sixth home run of the season.

Pitt regained the lead at 5-4 on a three-run home run in the seventh. With Alec Byrd (5-0) on the hill, the Panthers opened the inning with back-to-back singles from Jordan Frabasilio and Ron Sherman. But Byrd retired the next two batters before LeBlanc gave the Panthers their second lead of the afternoon with his third home run of the season.

Just as they did in the first, Florida State answered the call as Sansone gave the lead right back to the Noles connecting on a two-run shot off the scoreboard in left. Danny De La Calle drew a four-pitch walk off Pitt reliever Josh Mitchell (0-2) to start the bottom of the inning and moved to second on a sac-bunt by Delph. He would score three pitches later on Sansone’s second home run of the afternoon.

Neither starting pitcher would factor into the decision in game one.

After giving up two runs on four hits in the first, Mike Compton settled down giving the Seminoles 6.0 solid innings in his second start since returning from an abdominal strain. The redshirt junior right hander scattered just two hits and one walk after the first while finishing with four strikeouts.

“To be very honest, the hits he gave up (in the first) were not very well struck,” added Martin on Compton’s performance. “He pitched a very good baseball game today.”

Pitt’s Sandefur also went 6.0 innings allowing four runs on four hits as he walked three and struck out four.

Noles Complete Sweep of Pitt.
Chris Marconcini goes yard for the fourth straight game in Saturday’s second game of a double dip.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 13 Florida State (30-12, 14-7) completed the series sweep of Pitt (14-24, 6-15) on Saturday night with a 10-6 victory in the final game of a three-game series on Mike Martin Field inside Dick Howser Stadium.

“It was a challenging day for both teams to play 18 innings of baseball,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “I am just very proud of our team for staying tough when we jumped up by nine runs. For us to win two games today was certainly important. There is certainly an awful lot of baseball left (to play). I was just very,very pleased that we got it done today.”

With the win, Florida State remained five back of Louisville, who swept Wake Forest this weekend, for the top spot in the ACC Atlantic Division. Both teams have nine league games remaining including a key three-game series in Louisville, Ky., May 8-10.

“It was certainly four games that we needed to play well in and I thought overall we did play well,” said Martin on finishing the week with a 4-0 record. “Louisville won three games again this weekend; they have won the games that they needed to win with the outstanding play that they have displayed all season long.”

Four Seminoles finished the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader with multiple RBI including Chris Marconcini who went 1-for-3 with three RBI. The Seminole designated hitter connected on his fourth home run of the series with a two-run shot in the fifth as part of FSU’s seven-run inning.

John Sansone, Quincy Nieporte and Ben DeLuzio each drove in two runs as Florida State remained undefeated against Pitt running its all-time record to 22-0. Taylor Walls finished with a team-high two hits in the win.

Drew Carlton moved to 3-2 on the year after allowing one run on four hits over 6.0 solid innings. The freshman right hander issued three walks and finished with four strikeouts.

For the third time in the series, Pitt ran out to the early lead scoring a run on an RBI groundout by Jacob Wright in the third. Ron Sherman, who finished with a game-high three hits, scored on the play after opening the inning with a double to right.

Florida State answered the call with three runs in the bottom of the fourth to take the lead for good. After John Sansone and DJ Stewart opened the inning with a hit-by-pitch and walk, respectively, Nieporte followed with a single through the left side to bring home Sansone. Stewart would later score on a wild pitch, while Marconcini drove in Nieporte on a sac-fly to deep center.

The Seminoles broke the game open in the fifth scoring seven runs including four with two outs in the inning. Sansone registered a two-run double, followed by an RBI groundout to third by Nieporte. With two outs, Marconcini then hammered a 3-2 offering from Pitt reliever Sam Mersing over the fence in right center for his sixth home run of the season. DeLuzio capped the scoring in the inning with a two-run single through the right side.

The home run capped an amazing weekend for Marconcini, who hit .500 (5-for-10) with four home runs, 12 RBI and five runs scored over the three-game sweep of the Panthers.

“I am just very pleased to see guys like Marconcini have better weight distribution and hitting the ball like he is,” added Martin. “Lots of guys contributed but it was really encouraging to see basically the entire line-up contribute in that second game.”

Pitt would not go quietly scoring four runs in the seventh off FSU reliever Cobi Johnson. The Panthers sent 10 batters to the plate in the inning while the Seminoles used three different pitchers. Dylan Silva got the Noles out of a bases loaded, one-out jam by inducing an infield pop-out and then a groundout to second to retire the side and maintain FSU’s 10-5 lead.

A couple Florida State fielding errors to open the ninth gave new life to the Panthers but Alex Deise did a nice job of avoiding further trouble by getting a pair of fly outs to center including sac-fly by Jordan Frabasilio. Aaron Schnurbusch tried to take third on the play but was thrown out after a nice relay throw from Nick Graganella, to Walls to Dylan Busby ended the game.

FLORIDA STATE 6, STETSON 1
04/21/2015, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

FSU Downs Stetson 6-1.
Ben DeLuzio has a perfect night with three hits and three RBI in the win.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 11 Florida State (31-12) extended its win streak to five in a row following a 6-1 victory over Stetson (21-21) Tuesday night on Mike Martin Field inside Dick Howser Stadium.

Ben DeLuzio drove in half of FSU's runs tying career-highs with three hits and three RBI in the win. DJ Stewart and Quincy Nieporte each had two hits apiece as the Seminoles outhit the Hatters 10-7 in the first of two regular season games between the two schools.

"Ben is certainly capable of having nights likes this," Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. "I think he is getting more comfortable (at the plate) with each game. Certainly he is a guy that we need to produce; we need everybody in the lineup to produce. To get the big RBI double in the eighth was kind of the lid being closed. It was certainly a big lift and a big hit."

DeLuzio put together a perfect night at the plate going 3-for-3 with a pair of walks. He broke open a three-run Florida State lead in the bottom of the eighth with a two-out, bases loaded double down the line in left to close out the scoring Tuesday night.

"Most of the season has been a struggle but I think I finally found rhythm to my swing now," said DeLuzio. "The past week, week and a half, I've been seeing the ball great. I just hope I can keep it going."

The Seminoles once again received another quality start from senior southpaw Bryant Holtmann who worked 6.0 plus innings allowing just one run on six hits as he walked one and struck out three.

"Fastball, cutter again, I threw a couple good change-ups," said Holtmann on what was working for him Tuesday night. "It was just huge to be able to get ahead of hitters, to be able to attack and work quick innings."

Dylan Silva (6-1) picked up the win after working 2.0 shutout innings. The junior lefty entered in the seventh with two on and no outs only to get Florida State out of the jam by recording a strikeout and an inning ending double play.

Jim Voyles worked around a one-out walk and an infield single in the ninth retiring the next two batters on a groundout and line out to close out the win.

"The big thing you look at tonight is the outstanding job that Bryant Holtmann and Dylan Silva did and of course Jim Voyles pitched a very good ninth inning," added Martin. "It was a good win and now we enter the stretch. There are an awful lot of tough teams left on our schedule."

Florida State jumped out to an early 1-0 lead on a two-out RBI single to center by Nieporte in the third. Josh Delph reached on an infield single to second, moved to second on a single to left center by Stewart and scored on Nieporte's base hit to center.

Stetson tied the game at 1-1 on a solo home run by Cory Reid. The Hatter centerfielder took the first pitch from Holtmann to start the sixth out of the park to left for his fourth home run of the season.

A pair of Stetson errors in the bottom of the seventh led to three unearned runs and a 4-1 Florida State lead. Sansone, who reached on a fielding error at first to open the inning, scored on a throwing error by Stetson third baseman Josh Powers as his throw to home with the bases loaded pulled catcher Patrick Mazeika off the plate. DeLuzio drew a walk with the bases loaded to drive in a run, while a single to right center by Taylor Walls brought home Chris Marconcini for the third run of the inning.

The Seminoles added two more runs in the eighth thanks to DeLuzio's two-out double down the line in left.

Josh Thorne (3-1) suffered the loss for Stetson as he was charged with all three unearned runs in the seventh.

FLORIDA STATE 8, MIAMI 7
04/24/2015, CORAL GABLES, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

FSU Outlasts Miami 8-7 in 17 Innings.
The two teams exchange runs three times in extra innings before the Seminoles finally pull it out in the 17th.

CORAL GABLES, FL – In a game that covered exactly six-hours and tied for the longest in series history, No. 11 Florida State (32-12, 15-7) outlasted No. 13 Miami (30-12, 15-7) 8-7 in 17 innings to open a three-game series inside Mark Light Field.

Friday night’s game featured a combined 27 hits, 29 runners left on base, eight sacrifice bunts and three sac-flies by both teams.

Three times Florida State plated a run in extra innings only to watch Miami answer the call in the 11th, 13th and 14th innings, respectively.

Then in the 17th, Ben DeLuzio scored what proved to be the eventual game-winner on a wild pitch by Derik Beauprez (1-2). The sophomore centerfielder open the inning with a single through the left side, stole second and moved into third on a fly out to right by Taylor Walls. On the first offering to Danny De La Calle, Beauprez unleashed a wild pitch allowing DeLuzio to score from third standing up.

As was the case all night long, Miami would not go quietly as Brandon Lopez opened the bottom of the 17th with a single back up the middle off Will Zirzow. After a sac-bunt by Christopher Barr moved Lopez to second, the game would finally come to a close after a bizarre game-ending double play.

Justin Smith flew out to DeLuzio in center for the second out but Lopez got too far off second and was thrown out by Walls, who took the relay throw from DeLuzio and sent a strike over to John Sansone at second to register the final out of the game.

“It was the fight of our baseball team that I am just so proud of,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “We would score, they would tie it. We would score, they would tie it. And then what a way for the game to end; just a real credit to our young men, a big win. We know we can’t live with this very long but at the same time we are going to live with it for as long as we can.”

The win moved Florida State to 2-0 in extra innings and 10-1 in one-run ball games on the year. The game, which tied for the longest in series history since the two teams played a 17-inning marathon back on April 7, 2000 in Tallahassee, also marked the longest game that FSU has played in since defeating Wake Forest 4-3 in 20 innings in Winston-Salem back in 2006. After it was all said and done, it also marked the longest game ever played at Mark Light Field.

Josh Delph led all hitters on Friday night with a career-high five hits. The Bartow, Fla., native was 5-for-7 on the night with a walk and a run scored. Delph became the first Seminole to record five hits in a game since Jayce Boyd went 5-for-6 vs Rhode Island on April 27, 2012.

Quincy Nieporte was 3-for-5 with two runs, two RBI and two walks, while Dylan Busby tied a career-high with his fifth three-hit game of the season. Danny De La Calle also garnered two hits and scored twice in the win.

Zirzow (1-0) earned his first career win as he worked a career-high 3.2 shutout innings. The redshirt freshman right hander was tremendous in relief allowing just two hits and a walk.

Cobi Johnson gave the Seminoles 4.0 solid innings in relief as he worked the 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th innings on Friday night. The freshman right hander was charged with three runs, two earned on four hits as he walked one and tied a career-high with six strikeouts.

“(Will) Zirzow and Cobi Johnson pitched very well (in relief),” added Martin. “It was obviously a team victory and it took every single one of us. We are just very, very happy to come away with the victory.”

Both teams exchanged a run in the 11th to extend the game. Darren Miller drew a two-out, bases loaded walk off Bryan Garcia to give the Noles a 5-4 lead. But Miami answered right back with a run in the bottom of the inning to tie the game at 5-5. Barr singled through the right side to open the inning and later scored on a wild pitch from Johnson.

The two intra-state rivals once again exchanged runs in the 13th to push the game even further into the night. DJ Stewart laced an RBI single through the right side scoring Delph from third as FSU regained the lead at 6-5. But once again the Hurricanes answered as Ricky Eusebio singled through the right side with two outs plating pinch runner Jacob Heyward from third with the tying run.

The 14th inning provided much of the same as both teams exchanged a run once again. Busby opened the inning with a double to the wall in left, moved to third on a sac-bunt by DeLuzio and scored on a sac-fly to deep center by Walls.

Miami took advantage of an errant throw by De La Calle to tie the game at 7-7. George Iskenderian drew a walk to start the bottom of the inning and then stole second. Following a wild pitch by Alex Deise, Iskenderian took third and scored as De La Calle’s throw went into left field.

Neither starting pitcher would factor into the decision on Friday night. Boomer Biegalski allowed an unearned run on two hits in 5.1 innings of work as he walked three and struck out five. Thomas Woodrey gave up four runs on nine hits as he walked one and struck out one in 6.2 innings.

Billy Strode threw well in relief giving the Seminoles 2.1 scoreless innings. The senior southpaw allowed just one hit and one walk as he recorded a strikeout.

The Noles grabbed the early lead on Friday night courtesy of two doubles in the second. Nieporte led off the top of the inning with a double that one hopped the wall in left. He would score two batters later on an RBI double down the line in left by Busby to give FSU a 1-0 lead.

Nieporte added to Florida State’s lead with a solo shot to open the fourth. The sophomore first baseman took the first pitch of the inning from Woodrey off the scoreboard in left to give the Seminoles a 2-0 advantage. The home run was Nieporte’s fourth of the season.

The Canes threatened in the bottom of the fourth loading the bases on three walks from Biegalski. But the sophomore right hander got out of the jam getting Barr to fly out to center to retire the side and keep FSU’s two-run lead intact.

FSU pushed across two runs in the fifth to extend its lead to 4-0. For the second time in as many innings, the Seminoles opened the frame with a solo shot, this time off the bat of De La Calle. The senior catcher took the second pitch from Woodrey out of the park to left for his seventh home run of the season. Stewart kept the inning alive drawing a two-out walk and then scored all the way from first on Nieporte’s second double of the evening.

Miami pushed its first run across in the sixth, taking advantage of a Seminole error to cut the deficit to 4-1. Iskenderian opened the inning with a single through the left side, moved to second on a wild pitch and advanced to third on a fielding error at third. With runners at the corners and one out, Martin went to the bullpen and called on Dylan Silva. After a Willie Abreu sac-fly to center scored Iskenderian, Lopez drew a two-out walk. But Silva got out of the jam as Barr grounded out to second to retire the side.

The Hurricanes tied the game at 4-4 plating three runs in the bottom of the seventh as a Seminole error in the inning led to a pair of unearned runs. Florida State used four different pitchers in the inning as all three runs were charged to Silva. Zack Collins recorded an RBI single off Alec Byrd, while David Thompson tied the game with a sac-fly off Jim Voyles.

The Seminoles put together a little two-out rally in the eighth after Walls and De La Calle drew back-to-back walks off Cooper Hammond. After a pitching change brought on Michael Mediavilla, Delph laced a single to left but a nice throw by Carl Chester to the plate was in plenty of time to get Walls trying to score from second as the game remained tied at 4-4.

Miami also threatened with two outs in the bottom of the eighth but left two runners stranded thanks in large part to a tremendous defensive play by Busby at third to get the speedy Eusebio. The rally started after Barr drew a two-out walk. Chester followed with a ground-rule double that went under the fence in right as Barr had to hold up at third. The play was pivotal as Eusebio then hit a groundball up the line that Busby had to back hand at third and make a strong throw over to Nieporte at first that was just in time to retire the side.

Neither team could generate any offense in the ninth force extra innings, FSU’s second of the season and Miami’s fourth.

Noles Crush Canes 15-5.
The Seminoles secure their sixth straight series victory over the Canes following Saturday night’s win.

CORAL GABLES, FL – No. 11 Florida State (33-12, 16-7) took advantage of two big innings in the third and fourth to cruise to a 15-5 victory over No. 13 Miami (30-13, 15-8) on Saturday evening inside Mark Light Field. The win secured a sixth consecutive series victory for the Seminoles over their intra-state rival.

After Miami plated two runs in the bottom of the second, Florida State erupted for five runs in the third, seven in the fourth and three more in the fifth to post the most runs against the Hurricanes in the series since a 16-1 victory on April 15, 2006 in Tallahassee.

“We played very well tonight,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “It was just one of those nights that everything went our way.”

Mike Compton (2-1) settled in nicely after giving up the two runs in the second finishing the night throwing 8.0 strong innings. The redshirt junior right hander gave up three runs, two earned on 11 hits as he walked one and struck out four.

“I threw so, so (tonight), I mean early on I wasn’t doing a good job of being myself,” said Compton. “I wasn’t doing a great job of just pitching; I was just trying to throw the ball. I had to make some adjustments on the mound, but as the game went on I got more comfortable especially with the run support I got.”

Compton, who threw 50 pitches in his first two innings, tossed just 58 over the next six, saving a Seminole bullpen that used eight different pitchers in Friday night’s 17-inning marathon victory.

“Michael Compton really showed what he’s all about,” added Martin. “With the bullpen being pretty much depleted, he goes out there, and for his team, battles and gets us to the ninth inning. That was very, very important. Michael gave us a huge lift in taking the ball and giving us eight (innings).”

DJ Stewart had a perfect night at the plate reaching on all four plate appearances going 3-for-3 with three singles and a walk. Quincy Nieporte, Chris Marconcini and Dylan Busby all went 2-for-4 and combined to drive in 11 of FSU’s 15 runs on the night.

John Sansone, Taylor Walls and Danny De La Calle finished with two hits apiece, while Josh Delph recorded a double, scored twice and walked once. Sansone and Stewart both scored three times, while Nieporte, Marconcini and De La Calle added two runs each in the win.

Miami starter Andrew Suarez suffered his first loss of the season falling to 4-1 on the year. The redshirt junior was charged with 12 runs, 10 earned, on 11 hits in 3.1 innings. Suarez entered Saturday’s game having allowed just nine earned runs over 38.2 innings of work in seven starts this year.

“We were patient but yet aggressive when the ball was in the zone and that’s the trait that Meat has been trying to get through to our guys all year is to be patient,” said Martin on the approach of facing Suarez Saturday night. “But when that bad boy is in the zone to get a good swing on it and tonight we had some good swings.”

The Hurricanes wasted very little time putting pressure on the Seminoles in game two loading the bases with no outs off Compton on a pair of hits and a walk in the bottom of the first. But the Seminole starter got out of the jam without any harm done striking out the next three batters that he faced to keep the game knotted at zero.

“I was just trying to limit the damage (there in the first),” added Compton. “Bases loaded, no body out, in my mind I was like, ‘hey, if we hold them to one run, maybe two, that’s not terrible.’ I didn’t think I was going to strikeout the side, I was just trying to make good pitches trying to get that double play.”

Miami came right back to score two in the bottom of the second to grab the early 2-0 lead. Brandon Lopez opened the inning with a triple down the line in right and scored a batter later on an RBI single through the right side by Garrett Kennedy. Ricky Eusebio brought home the second run of the inning on a one-out double down the line in left.

Florida State answered the call with five runs, all on two outs, in the top of the third to take a 5-2 advantage. After a one-out single by De La Calle, Sansone sparked the rally drawing a two-out walk from Suarez. The next four Seminoles would reach on back-to-back infield single by Stewart and Nieporte, a bases loaded walk to Marconcini and a bases clearing double by Busby. The freshman third baseman took the first pitch from Suarez deep to left center that Carl Chester almost made a great running catch on as the ball popped out of his glove upon impact with the wall as the Seminoles plated three to take a three-run advantage.

The Seminoles opened the flood gates with a seven-run fourth to take a commanding 12-2 lead. After Suarez registered a groundout to open the inning, the next seven Florida State batters successfully reached base with De La Calle crushing a 0-1 pitch to left center to get things going. Delph followed with a double down the line in left and Sansone singled to left but both runners scored on a fielding error by Chester in left. Marconcini then drove in a pair of runs on a single through the right side, while Busby plated Marconcini, who scored all the way from first, on a double down the line in left. Walls drove in Busby for the seventh and final run of the inning with an RBI single to center.

Florida State extended its lead to 15-2 scoring three more runs in the fifth. Delph led off the inning with a walk, followed by a Sansone single and a walk to Stewart. With the bases loaded, Nieporte laced a single to right to plate a pair, while Marconcini followed with a run scoring single to right.

Miami added an unearned run in the fifth and two more in the ninth for the final margin.

After Taylor Folsom faced three batters to start the ninth, Jim Voyles recorded the final three outs of the game on a pair of strikeouts and a groundout.

FSU Falls to Miami in Series Finale.
The Hurricanes connect on four home runs on Sunday to avoid the series sweep.

CORAL GABLES, FL – No. 11 Florida State (33-13, 16-8) could not complete the sweep of No. 13 Miami (31-13, 16-8) on Sunday afternoon as the Seminoles fell to the Hurricanes 12-0 on Mark Light Field.

Miami connected on four home runs and scored at least one run in each of the first five innings as the Hurricanes out hit the Seminoles 18-7 in the series finale.

“They whipped us, took us to the woodshed, plain and simple; they did a great job,” said Florida State head coach Mike Martin.

The Seminoles could not find the offensive fire power on Sunday after combining for 23 runs and 33 hits in the first two games. Miami’s Enrique Sosa kept the Seminole bats at-bay scattering six hits over 6.0 plus innings as he issued just one walk and struck out five.

“The sinker was very effective,” added Martin following Sosa’s performance on Sunday. “He held runners well; he was just a solid pitcher. He did a very good job of spotting that sinker and then mixed in his slider. He was a very impressive pitcher.”

Cooper Hammond and Danny Garcia combined to throw the final 3.0 innings to complete the shutout.

It marked the second time this year that Florida State was held without a run and the first time in the series since Miami blanked the Seminoles 6-0 on April 6, 2013 in Coral Gables.

DJ Stewart was the only Seminole in the line-up with multiple hits finishing the afternoon 2-for-3 with a pair of singles. John Sansone, Ben DeLuzio, Taylor Walls, Hank Truluck and Danny De La Calle all had one hit apiece in the loss.

Steven Wells, Jr., made his collegiate debut on the mound working a scoreless ninth. The freshman right hander worked around a one-out single striking out the next two batters that he faced.

Will Zirzow, who made his second relief appearance of the weekend, allowed a run on two hits as he struck out one in 1.2 innings.

Miami jumped out to the early lead on Sunday thanks to a three-run shot by David Thompson in the bottom of the first. After Drew Carlton recorded two quick outs, the Hurricanes put together three consecutive two-out hits by George Iskenderian, Zack Collins and Thompson with Thompson’s leaving the park for his team leading 11th home run of the season.

The Hurricanes added to their lead in the second on their second home run of the afternoon. Garrett Kennedy took the first pitch of the inning from Carlton out of the park to right for a solo shot and a 4-0 Miami lead.

Carlton (3-3) could not get out of the third leaving Sunday’s game after just 2.1 innings marking his shortest outing as a starter. The freshman right hander was charged with seven runs on seven hits – both tied career-highs – as he walked one and struck out two.

“One of the few times I didn’t see the same Drew Carlton that I’ve seen in the past but that happens, that’s a maturation process,” said Martin. “He’s a freshman playing in an environment like this, he just wasn’t himself. That’s just something that he will learn from.”

Miami continued the offensive surge with four runs in the third, two more in the fourth and one in the fifth to take a commanding 11-0 lead. Iskenderian plated the first run in the third with an RBI double down the line in left. After a Florida State pitching change brought on Bryant Holtmann, the senior southpaw issued a three-run blast to right Willie Abreu.

Collins added to the home run tally in the fourth connecting on a two-run shot to right off Alec Byrd to give the Hurricanes a 10-0 lead. Iskenderian then drove in Miami’s 11th run of the afternoon with an RBI single in the fifth for his fourth hit in as many at-bats.

Miami scored its final run of the game in the seventh on a pinch-hit RBI double down the line in left by Peter Crocitto.

FLORIDA STATE 16, COASTAL CAROLINA 2
05/01/2015, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Biegalski, Stewart Lead Noles to Big Win Over Coastal.
The Seminoles outhit the Chanticleers 16-4 in the opening game of the series.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 11 Florida State (34-13) turned in an impressive offensive performance to go along with an outstanding start from Boomer Biegalski as the Seminoles opened the weekend series with a 16-2 victory over No. 23 Coastal Carolina (31-14) Friday night on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

"It was just one of those games that everything went our way," Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. "We played a very good baseball game. Boomer was really impressive. He has had numerous outings (this year) in which we haven't gotten him many runs, but tonight was totally different. Good outing by Boomer; a good game played by our team."

The Seminoles ran out to the early lead in game one scoring three runs in the bottom of the first and never looked back. Five Florida State players finished with multiple hits led by DJ Stewart who went 3-for-5 with a home run, two singles, five RBI and three runs scored. It marked the third time this year that Stewart has driven in at least five runs.

Josh Delph continued his hot hitting with two hits, two runs and two walks, while John Sansone, Quincy Nieporte and Chris Marconcini all finished with two hits apiece on Friday night.

Ben DeLuzio tied a career-high with three RBI drawing a bases loaded walk in the first and plating two more on a two-out single in the fourth.

Biegalski (4-3) received all the run support he would need after the first inning as the sophomore right hander took a no-hitter into the seventh inning. After walking the bases loaded in the first, Biegalski settled into a groove retiring 13 straight hitters before issuing a walk to Anthony Marks to open the sixth.

"After that first inning it all started to click and I was throwing everything probably the best I have all year," said Biegalski. "You just got to go out there and do what you've been doing, that's what got you to that point so there is no point in changing anything."

The Tallahassee native worked around the walk in the sixth setting down the next three batters on a pair of strikeouts and a groundout to first. Biegalski's no-hit bid would come to an end on the fourth pitch of the at-bat in the seventh when G.K. Young hit a solo shot over the fence in right to cut Florida State's lead to 9-1.

"He had one going (no-hitter) and we all knew it," said Martin. "Of course, we were doing everything we could to preserve it. If you are going to give up a hit, when you have a nine-run lead, it doesn't hurt nearly as bad when the guy hits it out of the ballpark."

"Obviously, you don't saying anything about it," said Stewart on Biegalski's no-hit bid. "I didn't realize he had a no hitter until the sixth inning when I looked back at the scoreboard and was like 'I got to pay attention and be ready to make a play.' When a guy is throwing like that you let him stay in his corner, you don't talk to him, you don't say anything, just good job and go and play defense for him."

Biegalski would retire the next three batters, all on strikeouts, to finish the outing with a career-high 12 strikeouts. The home run was the lone hit allowed by Biegalski in 7.0 innings of work on Friday night.

Alec Byrd and Ed Voyles worked the eighth and ninth innings, respectively, to close out the game one victory. Byrd allowed an unearned run on two hits as he struck out one, while Voyles faced the minimum in the ninth.

After Biegalski worked out of trouble issuing three walks in the first without giving up a run, the Seminoles responded by scoring three runs in the bottom of the inning against Coastal starter Mike Morrison (2-2). Stewart drove in his first run of the night on an RBI single through the right side, while Nieporte followed with a sac-fly to center. DeLuzio brought home the third run of the inning drawing a walk with the bases loaded.

"One of the keys to the ball game was his ability to get out of the first inning, bases loaded jam," added Martin. "Then we were able to come back and get a couple of key hits and get three in the first. That gives Boomer a totally different approach then and he did a great job."

Florida State pushed its lead to 7-0 in the fourth thanks to a pair of two-run singles by Stewart and DeLuzio.

The FSU lead grew to 9-0 in the sixth after Nieporte and Marconcini opened the inning with a hit-by-pitch and double down the line in left, respectively. Dylan Busby brought home Nieporte on a groundout to first, while a two-out base hit through the left side by Danny De La Calle drove in Marconcini for the second run of the inning.

After Coastal Carolina got on the board thanks to the solo shot by Young in the seventh, Stewart responded with a two-run, opposite field shot in the bottom half of the inning for his team leading 11th home run of the season.

The Chanticleers added a run in the eighth as Michael Paez reached on a fielder's choice groundout off Byrd and eventually scored on a passed ball.

Florida State scored five more in the eighth for its final margin. Hank Truluck drove in a run on a bases loaded walk and later scored on a wild pitch. Darren Miller recorded a two-run double, while Nieporte singled home a run on infield hit to third.

FSU Clinches Series With 8-3 Win Over Coastal Carolina.
Mike Compton strikes out a career-high 11 batters on Saturday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 11 Florida State (35-13) collected hits from eight different players and received another quality performance from its starting pitching as the Seminoles rolled to an 8-3 victory over No. 23 Coastal Carolina (31-15) on Saturday night to clinch the weekend series on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

“Certainly the thing that stands out is the great outing Mike Compton had,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “Michael was sharp to both sides of the plate, had his breaking ball, it was a tremendous outing. I was very pleased overall with how we approached the game, with the way we got after it. That’s a very good baseball team that we beat.”

FSU starter Mike Compton (3-1) gave the Seminoles 7.0 strong innings in game two finishing with a career-high 11 strikeouts. After giving up a leadoff single to Coastal’s Anthony Marks to start the game, the redshirt junior right hander proceeded to set down the next 15 Chanticleer hitters before giving up a single to Tyler Chadwick to start the sixth. Compton finished the outing allowing a run on five hits as he did not issue a walk for the third time this year.

“He showed signs in Miami of being back,” said Martin on back-to-back solid outings from Compton. “And I thought he did nothing to change my mind tonight; the way he went out there and just hit his spots. He took control of the ball game.”

“I think tonight was definitely better but Miami absolutely prepared me for tonight,” added Compton. “I thought Miami was a very good ball club and they definitely made you pay for the mistakes that you made. But tonight I felt like I had very good command of the fastball, working both sides of the plate and then mixing in sliders when I needed to getting punch outs, making them chase a little bit. It was definitely the best I felt so far since coming back.”

Compton received plenty of run support on Saturday night as Florida State scored all eight runs in the first five innings. And for the second straight night, the Seminoles out hit the Chanticleers, this time 10-7, as four of FSU’s 10 hits went for extra bases.

DJ Stewart and Quincy Nieporte paced the Seminole offensive attack with two hits each, while Stewart and Chris Marconcini both registered two-run home runs in the third and fifth innings, respectively.

“When you can score four runs with two swings of the bat, it’s always a good feeling,” said Martin. “Both of those guys are seeing the ball well. For DJ to hit another one opposite field is very impressive.”

Jim Voyles threw the final two innings in the game two victory as the sophomore right hander allowed two unearned runs on two hits as he walked two and tied a career-high with three strikeouts.

“I thought Jim Voyles pitched well tonight,” said Martin. “He is a guy we are counting on down the stretch.”

Coastal Carolina plated a run in each of its final three innings but it wasn’t enough as the Chanticleers fell to 0-13 all-time against the Seminoles.

Austin Kerr (8-1) suffered his first loss of the season allowing eight runs, seven earned, on nine hits as he walked two and struck out five in 5.0 innings of work.

The Seminoles took advantage of a Coastal Carolina error in the first to run out to an early 1-0 lead. Josh Delph reached on a fielding error by Kerr after the Coastal starting pitcher could not cleanly field the senior outfielder’s bunt attempt. After back-to-back singles by John Sansone and Stewart loaded the bases, Delph would come around to score on a groundball double play off the bat of Quincy Nieporte.

Stewart gave the Noles a 3-0 lead in the third thanks to one swing of the bat. With Danny De La Calle at third after opening the inning with a double to right center, Stewart took a 3-0 offering from Kerr out of the park to left center for his second home run of the series and team leading 12th of the season.

The Seminoles added to their lead with three runs in the fourth to take a commanding 6-0 advantage. FSU loaded the bases with one out on a double by Dylan Busby and back-to-back walks to Ben DeLuzio and Taylor Walls. De La Calle brought home Busby on a sac-fly to center, while Delph drove in DeLuzio on an RBI single to right. Walls would score the third run of the inning on a successful double steal.

FSU’s lead grew to 8-0 in the fifth courtesy of Marconcini’s two-run shot to right. The senior designated hitter deposited a Kerr offering over the fence in right for his seventh home run of the season.

Coastal broke through with its first run of the night in the seventh following back-to-back two-out hits off Compton. Casey Schroeder dropped a double down the line in left and scored on David Parrett’s single back up the middle.

The Chanticleers then added an unearned run in the eighth and ninth innings for the final margin. Marks scored on a sac-fly by Connor Owings in the eighth, while Jack Curtis plated a run in the ninth scoring on an RBI single by Chadwick.

FSU Falls to Coastal Carolina 4-2.
The Seminoles manage just two hits in suffering their first-ever loss to the Chanticleers.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 11 Florida State (35-14) could not complete the series sweep of No. 23 Coastal Carolina (32-15) on Sunday afternoon as the Seminoles managed just two hits against the Chanticleers in falling 4-2 on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Both hits came in the fourth inning off Coastal starter Shane Sawczak, but Chanticleer reliever Bobby Holmes (4-0) came in and shut the door on the Seminoles throwing 6.0 hitless innings of baseball to give Coastal Carolina its first-ever win over Florida State in 14 tries.

"I tip my hat to Holmes, guy did a great job," Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. "(He) Came in and threw 86 pitches in relief of a very good lefty. It was quite an outing. It was just one of those games that I was impressed with the way we continued to scrap all the way until the end. But sometimes you just have to tip your hat to the other club; they made outstanding plays and did not make an error. That is a regional team and they played very much like a regional team today."

Holmes scattered four walks over a career-high 6.0 innings of work, while striking out two as the freshman right hander threw a season-high 86 pitches.

"I was pleased with the effort of our guys coming off of final exams," said Martin. "I saw an awful lot of getting after it for three ball games. Today is what you see every night in the Big Leagues, somebody has a great outing. Well this guy had a great outing. He no-hit us for six innings; he did a great job."

Drew Carlton (3-4) suffered the loss as the Seminole starter gave up three runs on five hits as he walked one and struck out three in 3.1 innings on Sunday.

Dylan Silva was charged with a run on two hits in 1.2 innings, while Alec Byrd, Cobi Johnson and Billy Strode combined to throw 4.0 scoreless innings to keep the Seminoles within striking distance.

Byrd struck out three and faced the minimum in 2.0 innings, while Johnson and Strode both recorded a strikeout in a hitless inning in relief.

"I was very pleased with our bullpen today," added Martin. "When Byrdie came in with bases loaded and nobody out and gets out of it with no runs scoring, that kept us in the game. Dylan did a nice job of getting us out of jam in the fourth. Cobi and Billy also pitched well today."

Josh Delph and John Sansone were responsible for the only Florida State hits and runs on the afternoon as the Chanticleers out hit the Seminoles 7-2. DJ Stewart tied a career-high with his third three-walk game of the season, while Ben DeLuzio drew a pair of walks.

Coastal Carolina grabbed the early lead on Sunday plating three runs in the third off Carlton. After Tyler Chadwick opened the inning with a double down the line in left, the Chanticleers used a little small ball to generate the first two runs of the inning on a pair of sac-bunts sandwiched between a bunt single. G.K. Young put a stamp on the three-run inning with a two-out RBI single to center to give Coastal its first lead of the weekend.

Florida State cut the deficit to 3-2 with a pair of runs in the fourth. Delph and Sansone opened the inning with a single and double, respectively, off Sawczak and both would score with Stewart at the plate on a balk and a passed ball.

The Chanticleers pushed their lead to 4-2 with a run in the sixth as David Parrett drew a walk with the bases loaded to bring home Young. It could have been more for Coastal but Byrd came out of the bullpen and closed the door on any further damage recording a pair of strikeouts and a pop out on a bunt.

The Seminoles would not go quietly in the ninth as DeLuzio kept the inning alive drawing a two-out walk off Holmes. Pinch hitter Gage West then stepped in and came within inches of recording the first hit off Holmes but Billy Cooke made an outstanding running catch just in front of the wall in right center to rob West of a hit for the final out of the game.

Holtmann Pitches FSU Past Stetson, 3-1.
The senior southpaw works 7.0 shutout innings to move to 6-1 on the year.

DeLAND, FL - Behind 7.0 shutout innings from senior Bryant Holtmann, No. 10 Florida State (36-14) completed the series sweep of Stetson (24-26) with a 3-1 victory over the Hatters Tuesday evening on Melching Field inside Conrad Park.

"Anytime you get a win on the road especially in the state of Florida, you know you've accomplished something and this was a good win for us," Florida State head coach Mike Martin said.

Holtmann (6-1) turned in another fine start for the Seminoles scattering three hits and three walks, while striking out two as he no-hit the Hatters through the first four innings.

"Fastball, cutter again; I threw a couple good change-ups down and away to a couple hitters," said Holtmann on what was effective Tuesday night. "I was really just working fastball in and out and cutters down to get quick out and groundballs.

"The cutter is always a good pitch to get groundballs with and when I got in tough situations I was able to get a groundball. Starting the first and second innings with a walk is not ideal, but I was able to work out it and get quick outs."

The lefty from Albers, Ill., kept the Hatter hitters off-balanced all night long recording 13 groundball outs including three groundball double plays. Over his last five starts, Holtmann has gone at least 5.0 innings holding the opposition to a run or less four times.

"Holtmann has pitched very well for us since moving into that starting role," said Martin. "He didn't give up but three hits tonight. He let them hit the ball on the ground and we played very well defensively behind him. It was a well-played baseball game."

Dylan Silva worked a perfect eighth inning as he struck out all three batters that he faced, while Billy Strode closed things out in the ninth to earn his 12th save of the season.

"Holtmann pitched great, Silva pitched well and Billy pitched well," added Martin. "I mean when you take a team and hold them to five hits, you've accomplished something and I thought we did well tonight."

The Seminoles were held to just four hits on the night but came through with two key hits with runners in scoring position in the third and fifth innings.

Josh Delph had a two-run double in the third and Danny De La Calle recorded a one-out RBI double in the fifth to account for Florida State's run production on Tuesday night.

Stetson registered its lone run of the night in the ninth as Cory Reid opened the inning with a solo shot to left off Strode. After giving up a bloop single to Patrick Mazeika, Strode retired the next three batters to preserve the win.

With the victory, Florida State closed out its non-conference schedule with a mark of 20-6. The Seminoles have now won nine straight over Stetson and four in a row in DeLand.

The Noles jumped out to the early lead on a two-run double down the line in right by Delph in the third. Ben DeLuzio reached to open the inning on catcher's interference and moved to second as Taylor Walls drew a four-pitch walk. After a sac-bunt by De La Calle advanced both runners 90 feet, Delph brought them both home on his 10th double of the season.

Florida State tacked on a run in the fifth on a pair of doubles by DeLuzio and De La Calle. DeLuzio started the inning with a liner over the head of left fielder John Fussell that one hopped the wall. De La Calle followed two batters later with an exact replica to left to bring home DeLuzio as the Noles grabbed a 3-0 advantage.

Reid's home run in the ninth prevented FSU's first shutout in DeLand since 1970.

DJ Stewart reached base twice with a pair of walks to move his national leading tally to 57 base-on-balls on the year.

Noles Strike First Blow In Top 10 Battle With No. 3 Louisville.
Stewart, Marconcini and DeLuzio power No. 7 FSU to 13-4 win.

LOUISVILLE, KY – Florida State opened its third straight series versus a top 25 team Friday night traveling to No. 4 Louisville (38-12, 21-4) in a key series not only for ACC Atlantic division positioning but with national seed implications on the line. Facing a Cardinals squad ranked as high as No. 2 in the nation in some polls and a record 6,138 fans, Florida State (37-14, 17-8) made a statement in the opening game jumping out to a 6-0 lead after the top of the second before cruising to a 13-4 win. It was FSU’s ninth win in its last 11 games versus top 25 opponents.

“Tonight’s game was just one of those where things went our way,” said head coach Mike Martin. “We needed a key hit. We got the key hit by Marconcini in the first inning with an at bat for the records, no doubt. Boomer pitched very well for five innings, held them right there. That obviously is a very good baseball team it just happened to go our way tonight.”

“To come in here and just get the first one out of the way is just huge and moving into tomorrow,” said John Sansone. “We have a short night tonight and just going to try and do the same thing tomorrow.”

National Player of the Year candidate DJ Stewart was one of three Seminoles to record multiple RBIs in the opener joined by Chris Marconcini and Ben DeLuzio, who hit FSU’s lone homer, as the Seminoles pounded out 13 runs on 10 hits. It was the second time in eight days FSU has scored 13 or more runs versus a top 25 opponent after putting up 16 in a win over Coastal Carolina a week ago in the Friday night series opener. FSU’s 13 runs also marked the first time this season Louisville has allowed an opponent to score double digit runs.

“We did a lot of things right when it came to moving runners, when it came to a ball we needed the outfield reached to score a run we did it,” said Martin. “It was just one of those we worked ourselves into good hitting counts and of course Mike Martin Jr. handles our hitters, we had some good swings when we got in those counts. It was just one of those, like I say, things just went our way.”

Boomer Biegalski pitched five innings for FSU picking up the win and improving to 5-3 on the season. This was the third straight Friday night win for the sophomore versus a ranked opponent. The Seminole bullpen was spotless the rest of the way as three pitchers combined to shut Louisville down over the final four innings allowing just two hits.

“It is huge for us to get runs on the board for (Boomer) because we know he is going to keep them down to one or two runs,” said Sansone. “That’s definitely huge.”

The runs in the first inning off of Louisville’s Kyle Funkhouser set the tone for the night. Stewart and Quincy Nieporte drawing two key walks to load the bases with one out set the stage for Marconcini. The redshirt senior’s two-run single off the Cardinals ace began the six-run onslaught in the first two innings for FSU.

“Funkhouser is obviously going to be a top pick, no question about it,” said Martin. “He just had an off night. The only way you can look at it is it just happened to be an off night for him and some things went our way.”

“(Funkhouser) was keeping the ball low really well,” said Stewart. “He just couldn’t find the strike zone for a little bit. Sometimes you just have nights like that but he did a great job going five innings for them. I think he threw 46 pitches in the first inning. He did a great job extending the start and making it what it was.”

Noles Fall in One-Hit Shutout to Louisville.
The rubber game of the three-game series is Sunday.

LOUISVILLE, KY – No. 10 Florida State (37-15, 17-9) could not replicate the offensive firepower from Friday night’s opening series victory over No. 3 Louisville (39-12, 22-4) on Saturday as the Seminoles were held to just one-hit in falling to the Cardinals 7-0 inside Jim Patterson Stadium.

Louisville’s Brendan McKay and Lincoln Henzman combined for the one-hit shutout as the win secured the ACC Atlantic Division title for the Cards and the top seed at the upcoming ACC Baseball Championship in Durham, N.C., in their first season in the league. Louisville snaps FSU’s run of eight straight Atlantic Division titles (2007-14).

McKay no-hit the Seminoles for 6.1 innings on Saturday to improve to 8-1 on the year. The freshman southpaw left to a standing ovation after issuing a one-out walk to DJ Stewart in the seventh with a pitch count at 109. McKay finished with six strikeouts while walking four.

“Just a great job by McKay; he spotted his fastball beautifully and did a tremendous job against us today,” Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. “It is just one of those games that you give them all the credit, they certainly deserved to win today.”

FSU’s lone hit of the game came off the bat of Chris Marconcini, who found the hole through the right side on a 0-2 pitch from Henzman with two outs in the seventh. The last time FSU was held to just one hit in a game was at Virginia on April 20, 2013 in a 2-0 loss to the Cavaliers.

Mike Compton (3-2) suffered the loss as the redshirt junior right hander allowed six runs, five earned, on seven hits in 4.1 innings as he walked two and struck out three.

The Cardinals jumped out to the early lead on Saturday and never looked back scoring four runs in the bottom of the second. Danny Rosenbaum singled home the first run of the inning on a base hit to left field. Colby Fitch then laced a double down the line in left to score two and scored on a sac-fly to right by Devin Hairston to give the Cards a 4-0 lead.

Louisville would add single runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings for the final margin. Fitch registered a two-out, RBI single through the right side in the fourth, Corey Ray recorded an RBI double down the line in left in the fifth and Rosenbaum hit a solo home run off Ed Voyles in the sixth.

The Cardinals’ seven-eight-nine hitters drove in six of the seven runs on Saturday as Rosenbaum and Fitch combined for five hits, five RBI and three runs.

Alex Deise allowed two hits in 1.2 scoreless innings in relief, while Will Zirzow worked a scoreless eighth inning after giving up a pair of hits.

The two top-10 teams will return to the diamond for the rubber game of the series on Sunday.

“Every game we play from here on out we are trying to win and secure a top national seed,” added Martin. “We fell a little short today, but we will see if we can’t bounce back and play better on Sunday.”

With the loss, the Seminoles fell to 11-5 against ranked opponents this year and 6-4 against top-10 foes on the road. Ten of FSU’s 16 ranked games this year have come against teams ranked in the top 10.

FSU Drops Heartbreaker to Louisville.
The Seminoles will wrap-up the regular season with a three-game series against Clemson.

LOUISVILLE, KY - No. 10 Florida State (37-16, 17-10) dropped a heartbreaker in Sunday's series finale against No. 3 Louisville (40-12, 23-4) falling 6-5 in the rubber game inside Jim Patterson Stadium.

The Seminoles ran out to 5-0 lead after five and a half innings only to see the Cardinals score six unanswered over the sixth, seventh and eighth innings to earn the win and clinch the series.

Will Smith's solo home run with two outs in the eighth inning off Alec Byrd (5-1) broke a 5-5 tie to cap Louisville's come-from-behind victory on Sunday.

"We are cotton-pickin' sick to our stomach, we are aching," Florida State head coach Mike Martin said following Sunday's loss. "It was a good ballgame. They outplayed us, they deserved to win."

Florida State attempted a ninth inning rally off Zack Burdi (4-0) as Josh Delph drew a walk to lead off the inning, but Burdi then got John Sansone to ground into a double play and DJ Stewart to hit a sharp liner that was hauled in by Cardinal left fielder Ryan Summers to end the game.

The series loss for the Seminoles was just their second of the season.

"Today's outcome will not change how I feel about our club," said Martin. "I like our team. We've made great improvements in the last six weeks and we just have to keep battling."

Florida State jumped out to the early led on Sunday thanks to Darren Miller's two-out, two-run single back up the middle off Louisville starter Josh Rogers in the top of the first. The Seminoles loaded the bases on a pair of walks to Sansone and Chris Marconcini and a single by Quincy Nieporte. Miller then took the first offering from Rogers back up the middle scoring Sansone and Nieporte to give the Seminoles a 2-0 advantage.

FSU's lead grew to 5-0 after pushing across three more runs in the sixth. Ben DeLuzio drove in Nieporte for the first run off the inning on an RBI groundout to short. A sac-fly by Taylor Walls plated Marconcini, while Miller scored the third run of the inning on a wild pitch.

"When you have a five-run lead in the sixth inning you think you are going to keep it, but you have to give Louisville the credit," added Martin.

A throwing error by Florida State in the bottom of the sixth led to Louisville's first two runs of the game. Zach Lucas and Blake Tiberi registered back-to-back, two-out RBI singles off Bryant Holtmann as the Cardinals cut the deficit to 5-2.

Louisville tied the game at 5-5 with one swing of the bat in the seventh. After Cobi Johnson opened the inning with a strikeout, the freshman right hander walked Devin Hairston and then hit Sutton Whiting with a 3-2 offering before Nick Solak unloaded on a three-run home run to left center.

The Cardinals' first lead of the game didn't come until two outs in the eighth when Smith took a 1-1 pitch from Byrd out of the park to left for his first home run of the season.

Florida State starter Drew Carlton came the Seminoles 3.0 scoreless innings on Sunday as the freshman right hander allowed three hits and no walks, while striking out four.

Dylan Silva gave up two hits and a walk in 2.0 scoreless innings in relief while finishing with two strikeouts. The junior left hander worked out of a bases loaded, no-out jam in the fourth getting Lucas looking at a called third strike and then Tiberi to ground into an inning ending double play.

Louisville's Rogers did not factor into the decision on Sunday after allowing four runs on three hits in 5.0 innings of work as he walked five and struck out seven.

FSU Drops Series Opener to Clemson, 4-1.
Dylan Busby accounted for the only Seminole run with a solo shot in the second.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 10 Florida State (37-17, 17-11) dropped Thursday night's series opener to Clemson (29-25, 14-13) falling 4-1 on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

"Clemson played great," Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. "They got the key hits when they needed them; made some outstanding plays defensively. We hit some balls hard, they made some outstanding plays. It was to me the typical Clemson team. They just played very well."

The Seminoles managed only five hits on a night when Clemson starter Matthew Crownover (10-1) allowed just one runner past second base in 7.0 strong innings of work. Pat Krall worked the final two innings to earn his third save of the season.

"He kept us off-balanced all night," said Martin on the performance of Crownover. "He went in and out with his fastball and did a very good job against us. He carved us up; you just have to tip your hat to him."

Dylan Busby accounted for Florida State's only of the night as the freshman third baseman took a 1-1 pitch from Crownover over the wall in left in the bottom of the second for his ninth home run of the season.

Crownover would give up just two hits the rest of the night, both singles in the fifth and sixth innings.

The Seminoles had their chances early leaving four runners stranded in the first two innings. DJ Stewart and Quincy Nieporte put together back-to-back two-out singles in the first but Crownover got out of the jam on the very next pitch as Darren Miller grounded out to second to retire the side.

After Busby led off the second with a solo home run, the Seminoles put two on when Danny De La Calle reached on a two-out throwing error at short followed by a Josh Delph walk. The Tiger southpaw once again delivered a key pitch to get out of the threat as John Sansone popped out to first in foul territory to end the inning.

Clemson scored single runs in the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh innings as all four runs came against Florida State starter Boomer Biegalski (5-4).

The Tigers tied the game at 1-1 in the fourth after Reed Rohlman singled on a jam shot over the pitcher's mound and scored all the way from first on a double to the gap in left center by Chris Okey.

Three straight Clemson hits in the fifth led to the go ahead run as the Tigers never looked back on Thursday night. Andrew Cox, who registered a double off the wall in right center, scored on an RBI single through the right side by Steven Duggar.

Clemson took advantage of Seminole errors in the sixth and seventh innings to add a pair of unearned runs. Rohlman led off the sixth with a single to center and scored on a throwing error by De La Calle on sacrifice bunt attempt by Robert Jolly. The Tigers continued to threaten in the inning with runners at second and third and no outs, but Biegalski retired the next three batters on a strikeout, short fly out to right and a groundout to keep the deficit at 3-1. In the seventh, a fielding error at short by Taylor Walls led to Clemson's fourth run of the night and a 4-1 Tiger lead.

Biegalski gave the Seminoles 6.0 plus innings on Thursday night allowing four runs, two earned, on eight hits as he walked three and struck out six.

"I thought Boomer pitched very well," added Martin. "He gave us a chance. You have to tip your hat to Boomer he did a good job."

Alec Byrd, Dylan Silva and Jim Voyles all worked in relief in game one. Silva struck out two in 1.2 innings, while Voyles faced the minimum in the ninth striking out one.

Noles Blanked by Clemson.
The Seminoles held to just four hits in suffering their fourth shutout of the season.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 8 Florida State (37-18, 17-12) managed just four hits on Friday evening as the Seminoles were blanked by Clemson (30-25, 15-13) 7-0 in game two of the three-game series on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

The shutout was the fourth of the season suffered by the Seminoles who tied a season-high with their fourth straight loss of the season. It also marked just the third ACC series loss for Florida State this year and the first at home since dropping two of three to Virginia last year.

"Long day…we got beat, four hits; the left hander dominated, just down right dominated us," Florida State head coach Mike Martin. "We got a big break in that Notre Dame loss (today). So if we could get it done tomorrow that would be a nice little coup for us. We would be in the same spot we were in when we started the Clemson series."

Despite the loss, Florida State can wrap-up the No. 3 overall seed in the upcoming ACC Baseball Championship in Durham with a win on Saturday. A loss will drop the Seminoles to no lower than the fourth-seed.

Clemson's Zack Erwin and Taylor Vetzel combined on the four-hit shutout as Erwin held the Seminoles to three hits over 6.0 innings of work as he struck out three and did not issue a walk in improving to 6-4 on the year.

Erwin faced the minimum in five of the six innings that he worked in game two. In the two innings he gave up a single, both times the Clemson pitcher was able to induce a pair of groundball double plays.

After an hour and 41 minute rain delay, Vetzel entered the game and threw the final 3.0 innings to earn his fourth save of the season. The sophomore right hander scattered a hit and a walk while striking out five as Clemson held Florida State without a run for the eighth time in the series and first time since a 2-0 shutout at Clemson on May 6, 1996.

Mike Compton suffered the loss falling to 3-3 on the year as the redshirt junior right hander was charged with five runs, three earned, on seven hits in 4.2 innings of work. Compton finished the outing with six strikeouts while issuing two walks.

"You have to credit Clemson they are playing great baseball; they are hot right now," added Martin. "They are doing everything right. They beat us and beat us handily."

John Sansone was the only Seminole to reach base twice on Friday night as the junior second baseman singled to left in the fourth and drew a walk in the ninth. Chris Marconcini registered the only extra base hit with a double down the line in right in the second.

Reed Rohlman opened the scoring in game two with a solo shot to right to start the top of the second. The Tiger left fielder took the first offering from Compton over the fence in right for his third home run of the season.

Clemson added to its lead in the third plating two more runs to take a 3-0 advantage. Tyler Krieger recorded the key hit in the inning with a two-out, two-run single to left scoring Tyler Slaton and Andrew Cox, who reached on a single and walk, respectively.

A Seminole error in the fifth led to a pair of unearned runs and a 5-0 Tiger lead. After Cox led off the inning with a single to right, Eli White reached on a throwing error by Dylan Busby at third on an attempted sacrifice bunt. Compton then retired the next two batters but the Tigers came through with another two-out hit this time from Rohlman as he singled through the right side to plate Cox and Steven Duggar.

Clemson increased its lead to 7-0 pushing across two more runs in the seventh. Duggar led off the inning with a solo shot off Cobi Johnson to open the scoring, while FSU's second error of the game led to the second run of the inning. Krieger and Drew Wharton registered back-to-back infield hits and after successfully pulling off a double steal, Krieger scored as Danny De La Calle's throw down to third was just beyond the reach of Busby.

Alex Deise threw a scoreless inning in relief on Friday night, while Will Zirzow tied a career-high with four strikeouts in 2.0 shutout innings of work.

Ninth Inning Rally Falls Short as FSU Falls to Clemson.
The Seminoles suffer their first ACC series sweep at home since 2006.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - A ninth inning Florida State rally came up just short as the eighth-ranked Seminoles (37-19, 17-13) fell to Clemson (31-25, 16-13) 9-6 in the regular season finale Saturday afternoon on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Trailing 9-1 heading into their final at-bat, Florida State scored five times including back-to-back two-out home runs by DJ Stewart and Quincy Nieporte to help the Seminoles pull within three. But Pat Krall came on to get the final out in the ninth to preserve the victory and complete the series sweep for the Tigers.

"It just goes to show you what we are capable of doing," said Florida State head coach Mike Martin on the fight of his team until the 27th out was recorded. "It was very encouraging to all of us that we continued to battle. I am very proud of those young men for that."

The loss was FSU's fifth straight and first five-game losing streak since 2006. It also marked the first time the Seminoles were swept at home in an ACC series since Georgia Tech won three in a row in 2006.

Stewart led all Seminoles on Saturday with three hits and three RBI as the junior left fielder finished a triple shy of hitting for the cycle. Stewart recorded a single in the sixth, a ground rule double in the eighth and a three-run home run in the ninth.

Nieporte and Danny De La Calle both finished with two hits in the loss. The home run for Nieporte in the ninth was his fifth of the season, while De La Calle registered a pair of singles.

The ninth inning rally started as pinch hitter Nick Graganella opened the inning with a walk. Graganella moved to third on a one-out pinch-hit single to left center by Gage West and scored on an RBI single up the middle by Steven Wells, Jr. Stewart then delivered a three-run shot to straight away center for his team leading 13th home run of the season, while Nieporte followed on the very next pitch with a solo shot to left to cut the deficit to 9-6.

"It was one of those weekends that everything went right for Clemson," added Martin. "They played well. Those guys pitched extremely well. All three guys pitched extremely well."

For the third straight day, Clemson received outstanding pitching from its starter as Jake Long (2-0) scattered four hits and four walks over 6.0 innings of work allowing just one run while striking out three.

Drew Carlton (3-5) suffered the loss for the Seminoles as he gave up four runs on four hits in 3.1 innings. Dylan Silva, Bryant Holtmann, Billy Strode and Jim Voyles all saw action in relief on Saturday afternoon.

"He (Carlton) really didn't pitch bad," said Martin. "It was a left handers moment to come in (in the fourth), unfortunately they got a run but Drew did not pitch bad. He pitched well against Louisville and he pitched well today."

Reed Rohlman and Eli White paced the Clemson offense with three hits apiece. Rohlman drove in a game-high four runs as he tied a school record with three doubles in his first three at-bats.

Rohlman drove in Clemson's first three runs of the afternoon on back-to-back doubles down the right field line in the first and third innings. His double in the first brought home Steven Duggar who reached on a one-out walk. Then in the third, Rohlman once again came through with another key two-out hit to score two to give the Tigers a 3-0 lead.

Clemson added to its lead in the fourth with a pair of runs to take a 5-0 lead. Robert Jolly opened the inning with a single through the right side off Carlton and scored two batters later on Tyler Slaton's double to left center off Silva. The Tigers once again came through with another two-out hit when White recorded an RBI single to left scoring Slaton.

The Tigers extended their lead to 6-0 with a run in the sixth on yet another two-out hit. With Weston Wilson at third, Andrew Cox legged out an infield chopper over the pitcher's mound to plate Wilson and extend the inning.

Florida State answered with its first run of the game in the bottom of the sixth to cut the deficit to 6-1. The Seminoles put together a two-out rally against Long drawing three walks and a single by Stewart to plate just their second run of the series. Chris Marconcini brought home John Sansone drawing a bases loaded walk.

Clemson pushed its lead back to six at 7-1 scoring an unearned run in the seventh. The Tigers took advantage of a throwing error at third on a groundball by Wilson with runners at the corners to bring home Chris Okey.

The Tigers recorded a pair of sac-flies in the eighth to push their lead to 9-1. After loading the bases on an infield single and two walks off Strode, Tyler Krieger hit a sac-fly to right followed by a sac-fly to center by Rohlman.

"I am proud of those guys, we are going through a tough time," said Martin. "But the first season is over; we are starting our second season now."

Florida State will now head to Durham, N.C., for the 2015 ACC Baseball Championship.

FSU Opens ACC Tournament With 3-1 Victory Over Clemson.
The Seminoles score all three runs in the third and ride the right arm of Biegalski to an opening round win.

DURHAM, NC - A three-run third inning and the right arm of Boomer Biegalski was the recipe for success on Wednesday afternoon as fourth-seeded Florida State (38-19) opened pool play defeating fifth-seeded Clemson (31-26) 3-1 on day two of the 2015 ACC Baseball Championship inside the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

"Obviously it was the Boomer Biegalski show today and DJ picked us up with the big hit," Florida State head coach Mike Martin said. "It's amazing what starting pitching does for a ball club and Boomer gave us 6.1 (innings) today."

With the win, Florida State snapped a five-game losing streak, its longest since 2006, and secured a win in Durham at the ACC Tournament for the first time since 2011.

DJ Stewart and Quincy Nieporte accounted for all of Florida State's run production on Wednesday as the Seminoles scored all three runs on back-to-back two-out hits in the third inning.

Taylor Walls got things going in the third with a one-out single to right center off Clemson starter Matthew Crownover. The Seminole shortstop later stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch. John Sansone then drew a two-out walk to keep the inning alive for Stewart who laced a 3-2 pitch off the blue monster in left center and just beyond the reach of left fielder Reed Rohlman for a two-run triple. Nieporte followed with single through the right side to plate Stewart and give the Seminoles a 3-0 lead.

"I had two strikes on me, I was thinking opposite field, looking for the ball away," said Stewart. "He gave me a fastball away. He didn't want to load the bases with our four-hole hitter coming up. He gave me a fastball away and I tried not to do too much and hit it that way."

Crownover (10-2), who finished the outing allowing three runs on three hits in 7.0 innings of work, suffered just his second loss of the season and first since falling to Wake Forest back on March 27. The junior left hander recorded three walks and eight strikeouts against the Seminoles on Wednesday.

"He was doing the same thing that he was doing the whole game," said Stewart on the effectiveness of Crownover. "With a pitcher like Crownover, there's a reason he's the ACC Pitcher of the Year, whenever he gets in a jam he pitches out of it. And as hitters you have to capitalize on the opportunity. Maybe he'll give you one opportunity to score on him, maybe two, but it's not likely that he's going to give you many opportunities after that."

FSU's three-run third was all the run support Biegalski would need as the sophomore right hander scattered four hits through 6.1 scoreless innings to earn the win moving to 6-4 on the year.

"He pitched very well the last time we played Clemson and didn't have anything to show for it," added Martin. "So I'm sure he was motivated to pitch better today."

Just six days ago in Tallahassee, Biegalski suffered the loss to the Tigers giving up four runs, two earned, in 6.0 innings as Clemson defeated Florida State 4-1 to open the three-game series.

But the story was much different on Wednesday as Biegalski did not give up more than one hit in an inning and did not allow a runner to reach second until one-out in the sixth. The Seminole starter retired the side in order in the first and third innings and did not face more than four batters in an inning until the seventh. Biegalski finished his outing issuing just one walk while striking out seven.

"I felt like I was locating better than I had been, and getting ground balls," said Biegalski. "The guys playing behind me helped a lot today."

The Tigers recorded their first base runner at second in the sixth when Steven Duggar reached on a single and moved to second on a fielding error in center field. But Duggar would be stranded at second as Biegalski retired the next two batters to end the threat on a strikeout and a fly out.

Clemson loaded the bases in the seventh but came away empty handed as Dylan Silva got Tiger pinch-hitter Glenn Batson to hit into an inning ending double play to end the threat. The Tigers loaded the bases with a single, a walk and a throwing error at first against Biegalski prompting Martin to go to the bullpen and bring on Silva. The junior southpaw needed just two pitches as Batson grounded into the 3-6-3 double play to retire the side.

After loading the bases for the second straight inning, Clemson finally got on the scoreboard on an RBI groundout by Chris Okey. Silva opened the inning with a strikeout to Eli White before giving up a single to Duggar and a walk to Tyler Krieger. Billy Strode entered and issued a single to Rohlman to load the bases. Okey then delivered an RBI groundout to first to cut the deficit to 3-1 before Strode kept the Seminole lead in check getting Robert Jolly looking at a called third strike to end the inning.

The Tigers would not go quietly in the ninth as Strode issued walks to Tyler Slaton and White, but the Seminole closer preserved the win getting Duggar swinging on strikes to end the game for his 13th save of the season.

Clemson out hit Florida State 6-3 on the afternoon as all three of the Seminoles' hits came in the third.

Walls finished the afternoon 1-for-2 with a single, a stolen base and a walk. Josh Delph drew a walk, while Sansone reached on a walk and hit-by-pitch in the third and eighth innings, respectively.

FSU Downs UNC to Remain Undefeated at ACC Tournament.
The Seminoles moved to 2-0 in pool A play.

DURHAM, NC - Florida State has never captured an Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Championship at Durham Bulls Athletic Park, but the Seminoles took a giant step toward ending the drought on Thursday night.

Ben DeLuzio and Josh Delph each went 3-for-4 at the plate, and DeLuzio tied his career high with three RBIs as FSU downed eighth-seeded North Carolina, 8-4, in Pool A play.

Florida State (39-19, 2-0 in Pool A) has Friday off in the round-robin tournament before facing top-seeded Louisville (43-15, 1-1) on Saturday. If the Seminoles win, they will advance to Sunday afternoon's title game against the Pool B winner.

UNC (33-24, 0-2) faces fifth-seeded Clemson (32-26, 1-1) in Friday's game.

Redshirt junior right-hander Mike Compton (4-3) picked up the win on the mound for FSU, working 5.2 innings and allowing two earned runs on five hits. He struck out six and did not issue a walk.

Compton retired UNC's first 11 batters before yielding a two-out triple to Landon Lassiter in the fourth inning. He departed in in the sixth inning leading 5-2, and the Seminoles' bullpen held on despite rumblings from the Tar Heels in the bottom of the ninth.

Trent Thornton (3-7) took the loss for the Tar Heels. Thornton struck out 10 batters in 5.1 innings, but also yielded nine hits and five runs (four earned).

FSU grabbed a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning, as Delph led off with a double and scored on Chris Marconcini's two-out single to right field.

The nationally 10th-ranked Seminoles manufactured their second run in text-book style in the second inning as DeLuzio walked, stole second, moved to third on a sacrifice bunt and scored on Danny De La Calle's sacrifice fly. John Sansone added a two-out double for Florida State's third run.

A pair of two-out hits made it 4-0 in the third, as Dylan Busby singled and scored on DeLuzio's double to left field. Delph's RBI single in the top of the sixth pushed the Seminoles' lead to 5-0.

The Tar Heels chased Compton in the bottom of the sixth with three hits and two runs, including Tyler Ramirez's shot down the right field line for their second triple of the game. Alex Raburn's sacrifice fly brought home the first run, and Korey Dunbar's two-out RBI single made it 5-2.

Florida State scored its final three runs in the top of the eighth, with a bases-loaded walk to Marconcini forcing home one run and DeLuzio following with a two-run single.

UNC picked up its final runs in the ninth with three hits off Seminole reliever Jim Voyles, capped by pinch-hitter Brian Miller's two-run single.

FSU Blanks Louisville, Advances to ACC Title Game.
The Seminoles are seeking their sixth league crown and first since 2010.

DURHAM, NC - Behind a masterful pitching performance by Drew Carlton, fourth-seeded Florida State (40-19) shut out top-seeded Louisville (43-16) 6-0 on Saturday afternoon inside the Durham Bulls Athletic Park to advance to Sunday's ACC championship game.

The Seminoles will play NC State on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. in search of their sixth league crown and first since 2010. Florida State, who will play in the championship game for the fifth time in Durham, is looking for its first ACC title inside the DBAP.

Carlton (4-5) blanked the Cardinals over 7.0 strong innings on Saturday in one of the finest outings of his young career. The freshman right hander scattered five hits and three walks over the seven innings as he finished with four strikeouts. It marked the longest outing for Carlton since working 6.0 innings against Pitt on April 18 and the fifth time the Lakeland, Fla., native has thrown 6.0 plus in a start this year.

In two starts against Louisville this year, Carlton has worked 10.0 scoreless innings allowing eight hits and three walks while striking out eight.

Dylan Silva and Billy Strode each worked an inning in relief to preserve the win. Silva allowed a hit and a walk and struck out two, while Strode struck out one as he faced the minimum in the ninth.

Ben DeLuzio and Chris Marconcini combined for five of FSU's seven hits on Saturday as DeLuzio tied a career-high with three hits for the second straight game. The sophomore centerfielder finished with two RBI including one on a solo home run deposited over the Blue Monster in the eighth. Marconcini went 2-for-3 with a double, a two-run single and a walk.

DJ Stewart walked twice and scored two runs, while John Sansone also scored two runs on a hit-by-pitch and a walk. Dylan Busby and Danny De La Calle each recorded a hit to account for FSU's other two hits in the game.

The win by Florida State evened the season series with Louisville at two games apiece.

After both teams combined to leave 10 runners on base through five and a half innings, the Seminoles finally broke the scoreless tie in the bottom of the six with three runs off Louisville starter Brendan McKay (8-3).

Florida State registered just one hit in the inning, an infield single off reliever pitcher Drew Harrington, while taking advantage of two walks, two hit-by-pitches and a fielding error at second which led to the first run of the game.

With Sansone and Stewart aboard following a hit-by-pitch and a walk, respectively, to open the inning, Quincy Nieporte hit a tough in between hopper with the runners in motion that Louisville second baseman Sutton Whiting could not come up with in attempt to tag Stewart. The ball went under the glove of Whiting allowing Sansone to score from second for the first run in the sixth.

After a Cardinals pitching change brought on Harrington, Marconcini drew a walk to load the bases and Busby followed with a hit-by-pitch to drive in Stewart. DeLuzio brought home the third run of the inning on an RBI, infield single that ricocheted off the hand of Harrington scoring Nieporte.

Marconcini delivered a key two-out base hit in the seventh to plate a pair and give the Seminoles a 5-0 lead. Sansone and Stewart drew consecutive one-out walks off Butch Baird and after successfully completing the double steal with Nieporte at the plate, Marconcini took the first pitch from Jake Sparger into centerfield for a two-run single.

DeLuzio continued his hot hitting in the tournament depositing a 1-1 pitch from Kade McClure in the eighth over the Blue Monster and just under the bull sign in left. The home run, his second of the season, gave the Seminoles a 6-0 lead.

Through the first three games of the ACC Tournament, DeLuzio is hitting .545 (6-for-11) with a double, a home run, five RBI and three runs scored.

Florida State completed pool play with a perfect 3-0 record for the first time since the tournament moved to the format in 2007. Louisville fell to 1-2 along with Clemson and North Carolina.

Florida State will now face NC State, winner of Pool B, in the ACC Championship finals. It marks the second time these two schools will square-off in the championship game and first since the 2010 tournament when the Seminoles defeated the Wolfpack 8-3 in Greensboro, N.C.

ACC Champions!
The Seminoles capture their sixth league title in school history following Sunday's 6-2 victory over NC State.

DURHAM, NC - Fourth-seeded Florida State (41-19) captured its sixth ACC championship in school history after downing sixth-seeded NC State (34-21) 6-2 in front of a championship game record crowd of 9,759 Sunday afternoon inside the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

Boomer Biegalski (7-4) came out of the bullpen for the first time as a Seminole and worked 4.2 scoreless innings to earn his second win of the tournament. The sophomore right hander got Florida State out of a fourth inning jam and cruised the rest of the way limiting the Wolfpack to just one hit and one walk while striking out five.

Biegalski, who was named the ACC Tournament MVP after picking up two wins over a five-day span, threw 11.0 scoreless innings in two appearances for the Seminoles. The Tallahassee, Fla., native held the Tiger and Wolfpack hitters to a .128 batting average allowing just five hits and two walks. Biegalski finished the championship with 12 strikeouts.

Billy Strode threw a scoreless ninth inning for the second straight day to complete the win and give the Seminoles their first league title since 2010 when Florida State defeated NC State 8-3 in Greensboro.

John Sansone's three-run home run in the third proved to be all the runs Florida State would need as his shot over the Blue Monster in left broke a scoreless tie.

Ben DeLuzio and Quincy Nieporte finished with two hits apiece, while Danny De La Calle delivered a two-run single in the fourth after NC State scored two in the top of the fourth to pull within one of the Florida State lead.

DeLuzio hit a team-best .533 in the tournament collecting eight hits in 15 at-bats. The sophomore centerfielder tallied five RBI, four runs and was a perfect 3-for-3 in stolen bases in earning a spot on the ACC All-Tournament Team.

Joining DeLuzio on the All-Tournament team from Florida State was Biegalski and Chris Marconcini.

The title was Florida State's first in Durham in five tries and the second league title the Seminoles have won in the state of North Carolina.

FSU also completed a perfect run in the ACC Tournament for the first time since going 5-0 in St. Petersburg, Fla., in 2002. The Seminoles improved to 2-0 all-time against the Wolfpack in championship finals.

Neither starting pitcher would get out of the fourth on Sunday as both worked 3.1 innings. Bryant Holtmann would not factor into the decision after allowing two runs on four hits as he walked one and struck out two. NC State starter Johnny Piedmonte (1-1) was credited with the loss, his first of the season, after giving up four runs on three hits as he walked one, hit a batter and struck out four.

Florida State broke through with the first runs of the game in the third thanks to Sansone's three-run shot to left center. The junior second baseman took a 0-1 pitch from Piedmonte over the Blue Monster for his first home run of the tournament and eighth of the season. Taylor Walls led off the inning with a single up the middle and Josh Delph drew a one-out walk. Both scored on Sansone's three-run blast.

NC State answered the call scoring two in the top of the fourth to cut the deficit to 3-2. The Wolfpack loaded the bases off Holtmann on a pair of singles and a walk prompting Florida State head coach Mike Martin to go to the bullpen and call on Biegalski.

The first run in the Wolfpack fourth came on a bizarre play as Jake Fincher hit an infield fly pop-up with the bases loaded that dropped in fair territory allowing Joe Dunand to score from third for the first NC State run of the afternoon. Biegalski then unleashed a wild pitch that brought home Bubby Riley for the second Wolfpack run of the inning, but the Seminole pitcher kept the lead in check getting Josh McLain swinging on strikes to retire the side.

Florida State returned the favor scoring two runs in the bottom of the inning to push its lead back to three at 5-2. Marconcini was hit by a pitch to start the inning and advanced to second on an infield single by DeLuzio. After Walls drew a walk off Wolfpack reliever Curt Britt to load the bases, De La Calle delivered the big hit in the inning with a two-run single back up the middle.

The Seminoles added to their lead with a run in the seventh to take a 6-2 advantage. After Sansone drew a walk off Wolfpack reliever Jon Olczak, he advanced to second on a groundout to second by DJ Stewart and scored on a two-out double to the gap in right center by Nieporte.

Delph's Walk-Off Single Lifts FSU Past Mercer in 10 Innings.
The senior right fielder records his second walk-off hit of the season to advance the Noles into Saturday's winner's bracket game against College of Charleston.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Josh Delph's walk-off single in the bottom of the 10th lifted top-seeded Florida State (42-19) to a 5-4 victory over fourth-seeded Mercer (35-22) on Friday to cap a wild first day of the 2015 NCAA Tallahassee Regional on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

After second-seeded College of Charleston registered a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 11th to defeat Auburn to start the day, the Seminoles followed with their third walk-off victory of the season in the night cap to advance to Saturday's winner's bracket game against the Cougars.

The hot hitting Ben DeLuzio got things going in the bottom of the 10th with a one-hop single over the head of Mercer first baseman Howard Joe. After Taylor Walls reached on an errant throw by Bears' catcher Charlie Madden following a sacrifice bunt attempt, Danny De La Calle successfully moved both runners 90 feet with a sac-bunt leading to Delph's game-winning heroics. With the infield playing in, Delph laced a single through the right side off Dimitri Kourtis (3-2) to score DeLuzio from third.

The win snapped FSU's four-game losing streak in NCAA Tournament play as it marked the first time the two schools met in the postseason. The walk-off for Delph was his second of the season as he was responsible for the game-winner back on March 29 against Virginia Tech.

Delph, John Sansone, DeLuzio and Walls all finished with a team-high two hits in the win. The Seminole quartet was responsible for eight of the nine hits on the night.

DJ Stewart tied a career-high with his fourth three-walk game of the year moving his season total to 69 base-on-balls, a mark that is tied for the eighth most in a single-season at Florida State.

Dylan Silva and Billy Strode were phenomenal in relief on Friday night as the two left handed pitchers combined to throw 5.0 scoreless innings allowing three hits and one walk, while striking out six.

Silva entered the game in the sixth and got the Seminoles out of a big jam with the game tied at 4-4 and runners at the corners with no outs. The Lake Worth, Fla., native got Trey Truitt to ground into a 5-4-3 double play as the runner at second was called out for interference. Silva then got Matt Meeder looking at a called third strike to leave a runner stranded at third.

Silva retired the first seven batters that he faced before giving up a two-out infield single in the eighth. He then gave way to Strode after allowing a one-out walk in the ninth. The senior closer got a fly out and then a big strikeout to Kyle Lewis to retire the side.

After Strode (3-0) recorded two quick outs in the 10th, Mercer threatened with back-to-back singles before the Parkland, Fla., native ended the threat striking out Joe for the third out.

Neither starter would factor into the decision on Friday night. Mike Compton went 5.0 plus allowing four runs, three earned, on nine hits as he finished with two strikeouts. Mercer's DJ Johnson gave the Bears 3.0 innings giving up four runs on six hits as he walked three and struck out four.

Madden led the Bears with three hits in the loss, while Meeder, Danny Edgeworth, Nate Moorhouse and Joe all had two hits each.

Mercer took advantage of two Seminole errors in the second to score the first run of the game and take an early 1-0 lead. After Compton recorded two quick outs, the Bears put two on following back-to-back throwing errors at third and short, respectively. The second error on a groundball by Truitt allowed Joe to score from second to give the Bears the one-run advantage.

Florida State answered the call in the bottom of the inning sending nine batters to the plate en route to scoring four runs off Johnson. DeLuzio opened the inning with a single to right, stole second and scored on Walls' single through the right side. After Delph drew a one-out walk, Walls and Delph both scored on a double down the line in left by Sansone. Stewart brought home Sansone for the fourth run of the inning on a groundout to second as the Noles grabbed a 4-1 advantage.

FSU's lead was short lived as the Bears came right back to score three in the top of the third to tie the game at 4-4. Mercer recorded a pair of sacrifices to bring home the first two runs of the inning on a sac-fly by Jackson Ware and safety squeeze by Madden. Joe's two-out single to left brought home Moorhouse from second to even the game at 4-4.

The two schools would exchange zeros for the next six innings until Delph brought home the winning run with his RBI single in the bottom of the 10th as FSU improved to 3-0 in extra innings this year.

Eighth Inning Home Run by Nieporte Carries Noles to Win.
The Seminoles advance to Sunday's championship game and will face the winner of Auburn and College of Charleston.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Quincy Nieporte's solo home run in the bottom of the eighth broke a 2-2 tie as top-seeded Florida State (43-19) held on to defeat second-seeded College of Charleston (44-14) 3-2 to advance to Sunday's championship final of the 2015 NCAA Tallahassee Regional.

The Seminoles will play the winner of Sunday's 12 noon elimination game between Auburn and the College of Charleston at 6 p.m. on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

It was an eighth inning to remember on Saturday night as the two teams exchanged game-changing home runs first by the Cougars' Carl Wise and then by Nieporte.

FSU starter Boomer Biegalski found himself in control throughout the game holding the College of Charleston to just three hits over 7.2 scoreless innings. But the Cougars staged a two-out rally in the eighth beginning with Alex Pastorius' two-out double to the gap in left center. On the very next pitch from Biegalski, Wise tied the game at two connecting on a two-run shot off the scoreboard in left.

The tie was short lived as Nieporte once again game through when the Seminoles needed him the most, this time taking a 2-1 pitch from Charleston starter Brandon Glazer (10-2) just over the fence in left as Florida State retook the lead at 3-2. The home run, a line drive bullet, was his sixth of the season.

Billy Strode entered in the ninth and recorded the final three outs for his 14th save of the season.

Dylan Silva (7-1), who entered in the eighth and recorded the final out of the inning as he got Blake Butler to groundout to short, earned the win.

Both starting pitchers exchanged zeros for the first four innings before Florida State broke the scoreless tie plating two runs in the bottom of the fifth to take a 2-0 lead.

The first three Seminoles to the plate reached off Charleston starter Glazer with a single by Taylor Walls, a walk to Danny De La Calle and an RBI single back up the middle by Josh Delph to bring home Walls for the first run of the game. DJ Stewart followed two batters later with an RBI single up the middle to give the Seminoles a two-run advantage.

The lead held true through seven innings as Biegalski kept the Cougar bats at-bay limiting the Charleston hitters to just three hits over that span. The sophomore right hander finished with eight strikeouts moving his season total to a team-high 119 strikeouts - the most since Luke Weaver had 119 in 2013. Biegalski did not face more than four batters in an inning on Saturday night and at one point retired nine straight Cougar batters.

Stewart led all hitters on Saturday with two-hits on a pair of singles in the third and fifth innings.

FSU Downs Charleston to Claim NCAA Tallahassee Regional.
Drew Carlton throws 6.2 scoreless, Quincy Nieporte drives in four as the Seminoles advance to their 14th Super Regional.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Top-seeded Florida State (44-19) received a super start from freshman right hander Drew Carlton and Quincy Nieporte drove in a game-high four runs as the Seminoles defeated second-seeded College of Charleston (45-15) 8-1 in the regional championship on Monday evening to advance to their 14th Super Regional in school history.

The Seminoles will now head to Gainesville to face intra-state rival Florida in a best-of-three, Super Regional series. Dates and times for the Super Regional have yet to be announced. The match-up marks just the second time these two schools will meet in Super Regional play with the first and only time coming down in Gainesville in 2005.

Carlton (5-5) was the story on Monday night scattering six hits and one walk over 6.2 scoreless innings. For the second straight start, the Lakeland, Fla., native held the opposition without a run and against the College of Charleston the freshman right hander tied a career-high with nine strikeouts.

Dating back to his start against Louisville in the ACC Tournament on May 23, Carlton has not allowed a run in 13.2 scoreless innings.

Florida State provided all the offense Carlton would need on Monday in the third. Following a 57-minute weather delay that halted play with the Seminoles at the plate in the top of the third with runners at first and second and one out, DJ Stewart laced an RBI double off the wall in center to score Danny De La Calle from second to break the scoreless tie.

The Noles would go on to plate two more in the inning on an RBI single by Nieporte and a sac-fly off the bat of Chris Marconcini to give the Seminoles a three-run advantage.

FSU pushed its lead to 6-0 with one swing of the bat by Nieporte in the fifth. With John Sansone and Stewart aboard following a walk and infield single, respectively, the Seminole first baseman took the first pitch from College of Charleston starter Hayden McCutcheon (1-2) out of the park to left center for a three-run home run, his second of the tournament.

The Seminoles added to their lead with a pair of two-out runs in the seventh to take an 8-0 advantage. FSU strung together four straight singles from Ben DeLuzio, Darren Miller, De La Calle and Josh Delph off Charleston reliever Eric Bauer. DeLuzio scored on Miller's single to left as the ball went under the glove of Ryan Brown and all the way to the wall. Miller, who got to third on the play, scored a batter later on De La Calle's RBI single through the left side.

Charleston would score its lone run in the eighth as Carl Wise scored on a passed ball.

Dylan Silva worked 1.1 innings in relief on Monday night as he allowed an unearned run on one hit as he walked one and struck out two.

Billy Strode worked a scoreless ninth to preserve the win as he ended the game by getting Brown swinging on strikes.

Nieporte, who was named the Tallahassee Regional Most Outstanding Player, finished the game 2-for-4 with four RBI and a run scored. Delph led all players with three hits, while Stewart, Taylor Walls, DeLuzio and De La Calle all finished with two hits apiece.

Noles Fall to Gators in Game One of Super Regional.
The Seminoles are forced into a must win game on Saturday to stave off elimination.

GAINESVILLE, FL - A four-run first inning proved to be too much to overcome Friday night as Florida State (44-20) dropped game one of the NCAA Gainesville Super Regional to Florida (48-16) 13-5 inside McKethan Stadium.

Florida starter Logan Shore (9-6) threw 5.2 scoreless innings finishing the night allowing just four hits and two walks while striking out five as he extended his scoreless innings streak to 13 innings.

Boomer Biegalski (7-5) suffered the loss after giving up six runs, five earned, on six hits as he walked three and struck out one. It marked the shortest outing of the season for the sophomore right hander and the first time this year that Biegalski did not work at least five innings in a start.

Despite equaling the number of hits on the night with 11, it was the defensive miscues by the Seminoles that led to five unearned runs in game one. Florida State finished the night committing four errors and has now made nine errors in two visits to Gainesville this year.

Darren Miller, Quincy Nieporte and Hank Truluck each collected two hits in the game one loss, while Josh Delph reached base on two of his three plate appearances collecting a single and a walk.

The Gators were led by two-hit performances from Buddy Reed, Josh Tobias and JJ Schwarz. Tobias and Mike Rivera each drove in three runs to pace Florida, while Schwarz knocked in a pair of runs with one coming on a solo shot in the fifth.

DJ Stewart accounted for Florida State's first two runs of the night as the junior outfielder turned a 10-pitch at-bat off Gator reliever Frank Rubio in the top of the eighth into a two-run home run. The blast to right was his team leading 14th of the season and second career home run against the Gators.

The Seminoles refused to go quietly in the ninth sending nine batters to the plate in scoring three more runs on four hits. After Nick Graganella and Dylan Busby opened the inning with a walk and double, respectively, off Logan Browning, Steven Wells, Jr., brought home the first run of the inning on an RBI single to right. Hank Truluck followed with an RBI single through the left and a hit-by-pitch to Alec Byrd loaded the bases. After a Florida pitching change brought on Shaun Anderson, Nieporte greeted him with an RBI single through the right side to bring home Wells, Jr. for the third run of the inning. Anderson then responded by setting down the next two batters to lock up the game one victory for the Gators.

The loss snapped FSU's two-game win streak over Florida in the postseason. The Seminoles must now win the next two games of the best-of-three series to punch their ticket to Omaha and the College World Series.

Florida went on top early scoring four runs in the bottom of the first off Biegalski. Tobias and Schwarz registered back-to-back RBI singles followed by a bases loaded two-out, two-run single to the gap in right center by Rivera. The four-run first for the Gators tied for the most runs allowed by Biegalski in 18 appearances this year.

The Gators added two more in the third to extend their lead to 6-0. The first three batters in the inning reached on a single sandwiched between a pair of walks ending the night for Biegalski. Jim Voyles entered and got Rivera to ground into a fielder's choice putout at second that scored Schwarz but an errant relay throw to first by Taylor Walls brought home Peter Alonso for the second run of the inning. Voyles got out of the inning by getting Dalton Guthrie to ground into an ending inning 5-4-3 double play.

The Seminoles threatened with one out in the fifth putting runners at the corners following a double down the line in right by Ben DeLuzio and a single through the left side by Miller. But Shore kept the Seminoles off the scoreboard by getting Danny De La Calle to strikeout and Delph to line out to third.

Schwarz added to the Florida lead in the fifth with a solo shot to left center. The freshman designated hitter took the first pitch from Jim Voyles out of the park for his 16th home run of the season and a 7-0 UF lead.

The Seminoles left the bases loaded in the sixth after John Sansone reached on a hit-by-pitch and walks to Chris Marconcini and Walls. Florida reliever Taylor Lewis ended the threat by getting DeLuzio to ground out to second to retire the side.

Florida State's third error of the night led to two more Gator runs in the sixth as Florida extended its lead to 9-0. After Guthrie walked to open the bottom of the sixth, Harrison Bader hit a groundball that was not handled cleanly by Miller at third allowing Guthrie to score all the way from first. Bader would score three batters later on an RBI groundout to third by Tobias.

Florida added four more runs in the seventh to take a commanding 13-0 lead. Christian Hicks drew a walk with the bases loaded, Bader recorded a sac-fly to right and Richie Martin and Tobias registered RBI singles to account for the Gators' runs in the inning.

FSU Closes Out Season With Loss to Florida.
The Seminoles finish with 40 wins for the 38th year in a row.

GAINESVILLE, FL - Florida State (44-21) saw its season come to a close on Saturday falling to Florida (49-16) 11-4 in game two of the NCAA Gainesville Super Regional in front of an announced crowd of 5,772 inside McKethan Stadium.

The Seminoles ran out to an early two-run lead only to see the Gators score nine unanswered runs over the second, third, fourth and fifth innings to seal the win.

After giving up two first inning runs, Florida starter A.J. Puk settled down over the next three before giving way to the Gator bullpen after facing two batters in the fifth. Puk would not factor into the game two decision after allowing four runs, three earned, on four hits as he walked three and struck out six.

Bobby Poyner (5-2) completed the two-game sweep working 5.0 scoreless innings in relief to earn the win. Poyner scattered three hits and did not walk a batter as he finished with two strikeouts.

FSU starter Mike Compton dropped to 4-4 on the year as he was charged with six runs, five earned, on four hits as he walked two and struck out four in 2.2 innings of work.

Josh Delph finished his last game in a Seminole uniform with a team-high three hits in five plate appearances recording a double and two singles. Quincy Nieporte also had two hits, while DJ Stewart and Chris Marconcini added a hit apiece. Stewart connected on a two-run home run in the fifth, while Nieporte registered an RBI in the first.

Bryant Holtmann came on in relief in the fifth and worked 3.1 innings in his final outing as a Seminole. The senior lefthander was charged with two runs on six hits as he walked two and finished with a strikeout.

Senior closer Billy Strode worked a perfect ninth inning as he retired the Gators in order on a pair of groundouts and a strikeout.

Florida hit four home runs in the win including two off the bat of freshman All-American JJ Schwarz who connected on a two-run shot in the second and solo home run in the sixth. Schwarz finished the game with three hits, three runs scored and three RBI.

Peter Alonso also had three hits, while Harrison Bader, Richie Martin and Jeremy Vasquez added two hits each.

Florida State jumped out to the early lead in game two taking advantage of two Florida errors to score two runs in the bottom of the first. Delph led off the inning with a single to left center and advanced to second on a throwing error by Buddy Reed in center. After a sac-bunt by John Sansone moved Delph to third, Stewart hit a groundball to second but the throw from Dalton Guthrie to the plate was not fielded cleanly by Schwarz allowing Delph to score the first run of the game.

Stewart then swiped second and scored on Nieporte's RBI double to the gap in right center. The Seminoles continued to threaten off Puk on an infield single and a hit-by-pitch but the Gator starter got out of the jam getting a strikeout and fielder's choice putout at third to keep the bases loaded.

The lead was short lived as the Gators came right back to score three in the top of the second to grab a 3-2 advantage. The first two runs in the inning came off one swing of the bat from Schwarz as the freshman catcher took the first offering from Compton out of the park to left for a two-run shot and his 17th round tripper of the year. The third run was the result of two errors on the same play on a groundball hit to third by Alonso. He would later score on a sac-fly by Guthrie.

Florida extended its lead to 6-2 scoring three more runs in the third. Martin opened the inning with a solo shot to left. Compton then settled down retiring the next two batters before the Gators put together a two-out rally starting with a walk to Schwarz. He would score a batter later on Alonso's RBI triple to right center which ended the afternoon for Compton. Vasquez greeted Dylan Silva with an RBI single through the right side before the Seminole reliever retired the side on a fielder's choice groundout to short.

The Gators connected on their third home run of the game in the fourth on a two-run shot by Bader. The junior left fielder took a 2-2 pitch from Silva out to left for his 15th home run of the season and an 8-2 Florida advantage.

Florida pushed its lead to 9-2 with a run in the fifth as Bader drew a bases loaded walk off Holtmann.

Florida State cut the deficit to 9-4 thanks to a two-run shot by Stewart in the bottom of the fifth. After Sansone drew a walk off Puk to open the inning, Stewart followed with his second home run in as many games. The round tripper to right marked his team leading 15th of the season.

The Gators responded with a solo shot in the sixth to extend their lead to 10-4. For the second time in game two, Schwarz left the yard, this time connecting on a 1-2 pitch off Holtmann.

Florida's 11th run of the game came in the eighth when Josh Tobias led off the inning with an infield single to short and later scored on wild pitch by Holtmann.

Florida State concludes the season at 44-21 reaching the 40-win plateau for the 38th year in a row. The Seminoles went on to claim their sixth ACC title in 2015 while advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the 38th consecutive season.
