Seminoles Open Season with 19-1 Win Over Rhode Island.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida State baseball team ran its consecutive opening day streak to 35 after posting a 19-1 win against Rhode Island on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium. Leading the offensive explosion on the afternoon were Gage West, Ben DeLuzio, John Sansone and Taylor Walls who each tallied three hits.

West finished one hit shy of a cycle as he was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate, driving in five runs, including a home run in the fifth inning. He followed later in the inning with a double to centerfield, finishing only a triple short of the cycle.

DeLuzio's performance was highlighted by a ground rule double in fourth inning, putting two runners in scoring position as Florida State plated three runs in the inning.

Sansone was responsible for a double, two singles and two runs in five at-bats as he highlighted a top third of the order that finished with seven hits, seven runs and five RBIs. His first extra-base hit came in the fifth when he scored DeLuzio from third on a hit into right centerfield.

Walls was the lone hitter in the Florida State lineup with multiple extra base hits following doubles in both the fifth and ninth innings. Walls opened the flood gates in the fifth inning with a double to left centerfield as 10 Seminole runners crossed the plate to make for a 15-1 lead. Three at bats later he doubled down the right field line for the first hit of the ninth inning.

Holding a 5-1 advantage entering the fifth, Florida State capitalized on three Rhode Island errors to score 10 runs. Both West, who came away with a home run to right and a double to center, and Walls, who finished with a double to left center and a single to the left side of the infield, came away with multiple hits during the frame.

All three freshmen in head coach Mike Martin's lineup notched their first collegiate hits. Catcher Cal Raleigh reached on a bunt in the first, scoring DeLuzio from third on the play. Jackson Lueck reached base on a single to past the shortstop to open the second inning and teammate Matt Henderson collected his first hit in the eighth inning when he dropped a single into centerfield.

Mike Compton moved his record to 3-0 on opening day as he allowed one run on three hits and struck out a pair of Rhode Island hitters in five complete.

Compton was followed on the mound by Alec Byrd, Jim Voyles, Ed Voyles and Chase Haney, who each worked one inning in relief.

Byrd struck out two Rhode Island hitters in 13 pitches and both Jim Voyles and Ed Voyles sat down two Rams batters in a pair of hitless efforts. Haney surrendered one hit, but struck out three to complete the ninth as the Seminoles moved to 34-3 all-time under Martin on opening day.

Trio Leads Florida State to 8-1 Win Over Rams.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - John Sansone smacked his second career grand slam while Drew Carlton and Tyler Holton combined for a six-hitter to lead Florida State past visiting Rhode Island 8-1 on Saturday afternoon on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Sansone, who was 2-for-4 at the plate, finished with four RBIs and one run to highlight the top half of the Seminoles' order. Teammate Cal Raleigh (1-2) was responsible for two RBIs, while Darren Miller (2-4, 1 run) and Jackson Lueck (1-1, 1 run) added one each as Florida State improved to 2-0 on the season.

Carlton notched his first win of the season after striking out six Rhode Island hitters. He pitched five complete innings and scattered five hits, allowing multiple hits in only the fifth inning, while walking two Rams hitters.

Holton earned his first collegiate save after holding Rhode Island to one hit and one walk in four innings of work. The freshman hurler struck out six batters, including Mike Corin, Jordan Powell and Mike Foley in order in the sixth inning, his first on the mound.

"Sansone's home run was huge because we had struck out the hitter before that for the second out of the inning," said head coach Mike Martin. "Two-out hits win ball games and Sansone delivered big for us, which is something that he's worked very hard at with Mike Martin Jr.

"Carlton and Holton gave us every opportunity to win today," added Martin. "When you hold the other team to one run, that's what it's all about. Both of those young men pitched extremely well."

Rhode Island (0-2) scored the first run of the game in the third inning when Connor Foreman reached on an error at second base. Two batters later he crossed the plate with a Martin Figueroa double into centerfield.

Florida State quickly answered when Taylor Walls led off the bottom half of the inning with a double to right field. Both Lueck and Ben DeLuzio drew walks, loading the bases with Sansone at the plate. The senior responded by lifting the first pitch over the right centerfield wall for a home run.

The Seminoles extended the lead to 5-1 in the fifth inning on a sacrifice fly to left by Raleigh, bringing home Matt Henderson from third.

Three straight singles in the bottom of the sixth by Dylan Busby, Miller and Walls, one of which scored Busby from second, pushed the Florida State lead to 6-1. Two batters later the lead grew to six, following a sacrifice fly by Lueck.

The final Florida State run came in the seventh on a hard single back up the middle by Raleigh, who again scored Henderson from third.

Noles Explode in 23-4 Sweep of Rhode Island.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida State baseball team completed its three-game sweep of Rhode Island on Sunday with a 23-4 victory that included 24 hits and eight extra base hits. The win, in front of 4,382 in attendance on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium, gave the Seminoles their 35th consecutive series victory on opening weekend.

Among the seven players with extra base hits included Jackson Lueck (1-1, 2 RBI, triple), Hank Truluck (2-2, 2 RBI, 2 doubles), Taylor Walls (2-4, 2 RBI, 3 runs, double) and Gage West (2-3, 1 RBI, double).

Senior John Sansone started the extra base hitting barrage with a home run over the left field wall in the first inning, smacking home runs in consecutive games for the first time in his collegiate career, after a grand slam on Saturday.

Donovan Petry, who went 3-for-5 at the plate with three RBIs, led the way for the Florida State (3-0) at the plate. He was one of 15 hitters in the Seminole lineup to have at least one hit, seven of which came away with multiple hits.

Freshman hurler Cole Sands also impressed the Florida State faithful as he allowed two hits, one run and one walk while striking out six Rhode Island hitters in five innings. He posted the first win of his Seminole career with the outing.

"Sands showed good composure and he had all three pitches going, which was nice to see," said head coach Mike Martin. "Coach Mike Bell did a great job of calling the game to put (Sands) in good position to be successful and by virtue of that he was topping out in the 90s. That was a good overall outing for Sands."

Sands was followed on the mound by combination of Matthew Kinney, Cobi Johnson, Andrew Karp and Tyler Warmoth. Kinney, who made his first appearance for the Seminoles, surrendered two hits and tallied one strikeout in the sixth inning. Fellow newcomer, Warmoth, closed out the game with three strikeouts as Florida State notched 13 strikeouts as a staff.

Johnson worked the seventh inning for the Seminoles and finished with two strikeouts in 12 pitches.

The Seminoles pounded out 24 hits in the game, including five in both the sixth and seventh innings which resulted in seven and three runs, respectively. Florida State scored at least 20 runs for the first time since a 24-run outing against South Florida on March 3, 2015. The Noles capped off the weekend with a 50-20 edge in total hits and a 50-6 advantage in runs.

With a 3-0 advantage entering the third inning, due in large part to Sansone's two-run homer, Florida State put three runners across the plate in the third inning. The first run of the third came when Walls doubled to left to score Gage West from second. Two batters later Dylan Busby singled to left to score West and the Seminoles scored their final run of the inning with a single by Petrey that brought in Darren Miller.

After a five-run fourth, the Florida State lead ballooned to 13-1 with two runs in the fifth. Consecutive hit batters opened up the sixth inning for the Noles, who witnessed seven runs cross the plate. With the bases loaded, following a single by Nick Graganella, Steven Wells slapped a single through the left side to bring home Holton from third. That was followed by a two-run double from Truluck, scoring both Graganella and Petrey.

Bryan Bussey grounded out to short, scoring Wells from third, but Lueck's triple extended the seventh inning by scoring Truluck, before Petrey completed the inning with a single into right field that brought home Miller.

Noles Suffer Setback in Series Opener to CofC.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - An eighth inning rally attempt, spearheaded by Jackson Lueck's single through the left side of the infield that scored teammate John Sansone from third, was not enough for Florida State to turn back visiting College of Charleston, who earned a 2-1 victory on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium on Friday evening.

Lueck (1-1, 1 RBI) joined Sansone (1-3, 1 run) and Darren Miller (1-2) as the only Florida State hitters with a hit on the evening.

Florida State got a solid performance on the mound from starter Mike Compton, who struck out six Cougar hitters in 5.2 innings. Compton (1-1) scattered six hits and allowed two runs, one earned, and two walks in his second start of the season.

Alec Byrd relieved Compton in the sixth, forcing College of Charleston into a grounder, before giving way to Tyler Holton. In three innings, Holton allowed just one hit and one walk while striking out two Cougar hitters in 45 pitches.

"It was a game in which their guy pitched very well and our guy pitched very well," said head coach Mike Martin. "They got a couple of key hits to drive in runs and while we hit the ball very hard, they positioned people very well. Our reliever did a great job of pitching a couple of innings of one-hit baseball, along with one walk, so it is something that you look at and say 'let's be ready to go tomorrow,' because there is no way that I can find anything to be critical about."

College of Charleston (3-1) was led by hurler Nathan Helvy (1-0) who limited the Seminoles to two hits and three walks in 5.1 innings. Helvy gave up his first hit of the night in the fifth inning on a single to centerfield by Sansone.

He was followed on the mound by Eric Bauer and Will Detwiler, who allowed the RBI single by Lueck, as the Cougars held a one-run lead heading into the ninth. Right-hander Carter Love, en route to his first save of the season, preserved the win by striking out a pair of Florida State batters.

College of Charleston took the lead in the fourth inning when Jake Maziar dropped a single into left centerfield, scoring Erven Roper from third. The Cougars added their second run in the sixth when an error at second allowed Roper to score on the play.

Solid Performance Leads Seminoles to 8-3 Win.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - A solid all-around performance both on the mound and at the plate led the Florida State baseball team to an 8-3 victory over College of Charleston on Saturday afternoon at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

The Seminoles, who improved to 4-1 on the campaign, received solid outings at the plate from the trio of Dylan Busby (3-5, 2 RBI, triple), John Sansone (3-5, 2 RBI, double) and Taylor Walls (3-5, RBI, double). Meanwhile, the pitching performance of Drew Carlton (2-0), who tallied six strikeouts in six innings, while scattering two runs on seven hits, kept the College of Charleston bats in check.

Also with a multi-hit performance for Florida State, which ended the game with 12 hits, was Cal Raleigh with a 2-for-4 outing that included two RBI.

"It was a good win against a good team and tomorrow is a very important game for both teams," said head coach Mike Martin. "It was a game that I could tell from the time that I walked into the stadium that there was something that this club has that I appreciate. There wasn't a lot of smiling, but rather it was we need to get this done, and we went right out-fought, battled-and made good plays."

Florida State put four runs across in the third inning, which began when Sansone singled through the right side of the infield to bring home Jackson Lueck. That was followed by a double to left by Raleigh, plating Matt Henderson and Taylor Walls as the Seminoles assumed the 3-0 advantage. The final run of the inning came on a single by Busby, scoring Sansone from third.

College of Charleston (3-2) briefly trimmed the deficit to three, following a single to right by Ryan Brown that brought home Tommy Richter. However, the Noles retaliated with an RBI single from Busby that again plated Sansone.

The two teams scored one run each in the sixth, making for a 6-2 Florida State lead, before the Seminoles tacked on two runs in the seventh to put the game out of reach. Busby led off the inning with triple into right centerfield and scored two batters later on a field error at second before the final FSU run crossed the plate with a Walls double up the middle, scoring Wells from 90-feet away.

The Cougars were led at the plate by the duo of Richter (2-4, run) and Luke Manzo (2-3, RBI). Starting pitcher Bailey Ober (0-1) went three innings, allowed four runs, all earned, on five hits along with three walks.

Noles Post 11-2 Win Over College of Charleston.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Three Florida State hitters, including Hayden Kelly, Darren Miller and Steven Wells Jr., collected two RBIs as the Seminoles posted an 11-2 victory in the series finale over College of Charleston on Sunday afternoon at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Miller, who finished 1-for-2 at the plate, highlighted a three-run fifth inning when he sent a single up the middle to score Dylan Busby and Gage West. Wells, who came off the bench for head coach Mike Martin, roped a double to left field that scored Dylan Busby and Jackson Lueck as part of a four-run seventh inning for Florida State.

Kelly, who took over third base duties from John Sansone in the seventh, made his impact felt immediately with a single into centerfield which plated both Donovan Petrey and Wells.

Starting pitcher Cole Sands, who moved to 2-0 on the season, went five innings, allowing just one run and four hits while striking out one batter. He was followed on the mound by the committee of Alec Byrd, Cobi Johnson, Will Zirzow and Chase Haney. The relievers combined for four strikeouts, allowed one hit, one run and two walks as Florida State moved to 5-1 on the season.

"It feels very good to see that last column (errors) with a zero in it and to watch a team get an opportunity to blow the game open and take advantage of it," said Martin. "I am very pleased with the way that we got after it today."

Florida State grabbed the lead in the first inning due in large part to back-to-back singles by Taylor Walls and Matt Henderson. With one out on a double steal, Walls crossed the plate for the first run and Henderson reached third on a muffed throw to home. Henderson eventually scored on a fielding error with Gage West at the plate and Cal Raleigh tallied the final run of the inning on a wild pitch as the Seminoles grabbed the 3-0 advantage.

College of Charleston cut the deficit to two, following a solo home run to left field by Bradley Jones, but a three-run inning by Florida State pushed the lead to 6-1.

The second three-run affair took place in the fifth when CofC starting pitcher Hayden McCutcheon made an errant throw to first, allowing Sansone to advance to third. Raleigh lined a hit off McCutcheon's foot, scoring Sansone for the 4-1 lead. Three batters later, with both Dylan Busby and West in scoring position, following a double steal, Miller cracked a single up the middle to push the lead to five.

McCutcheon (1-1) took the loss for the Cougars (3-3) after surrendering four runs, two earned, three hits in four innings. College of Charleston was led at the plate by Jones, who finished the game by going 2-for-3 with a home run and a double.

Raleigh, Sansone Shine in Tough Setback to Dolphins.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Florida State freshman Cal Raleigh recorded his first collegiate home run and John Sansone added a two-run single in the ninth inning, but it was not enough to rally the Seminoles past Jacksonville, who posted a 7-3 win on Tuesday evening on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Raleigh, who went 2-for-5 at the plate, lifted his first home run over the right field wall to lead off the sixth inning. He was joined by Sansone, who finished 2-for-5 with two RBI, and Dylan Busby (2-4) with multiple hits.

Tyler Holton (0-1) went three innings in his first start, allowing four runs, two earned and striking out a pair of Jacksonville hitters. He was followed in the fourth by Andrew Karp who surrendered two unearned runs and four hits.

The committee of Jim Voyles, Matthew Kinney and Will Zirzow pitched the final four innings for Florida State, striking out six Dolphin hitters while allowing three hits and one earned run.

“It is certainly not the first time this group has lost a ball game, but we got beat by a very good team,” said head coach Mike Martin. “The starting pitcher (Baumann) pitched a little over five innings and he was dynamite. It is one of those games that you do what we have tried to do in the past and put it behind us.”

Eight of the nine Jacksonville batters finished with at least one hit as the Dolphins combined for 16 hits. Parker Perez (4-5, RBI) led the way for Jacksonville, followed by Austin Hays (3-5, RBI) and Dakota Julylia (2-4, RBI).

Michael Baumann (1-0) earned his first win for the Dolphins after striking out six Florida State batters in 5.1 innings. Baumann gave up only one run on four hits and walked two Seminole batters in his first outing of the season.

The Dolphins (4-0) put four runs across the plate in the second inning, the first coming on a home run over the left field wall by Franco Guardascione. With two outs, Angel Camacho kept the inning alive with a double down the left field line, scoring Seth DeWitt. With runners on the corners, and a 2-0 advantage, Perez singled to left, plating Camacho. That was followed by an RBI single to center field by Austin Hays.

Jacksonville extended its lead to 6-0 in the fifth with a single to third by Julylia, scoring both DeWitt and JJ Gould.

Raleigh’s solo shot over the right field wall scored the first Florida State run of the game in the sixth. However, Jacksonville answered in the ninth with a home run to left by Gould.

Sansone gave Florida State life with only one out in the ninth, singling up the middle to score Taylor Walls and Matt Henderson, but Jacksonville managed to close the door for the four-run win.

With Karp appearing in relief against the Dolphins, Florida State will send right-hander Cobi Johnson (0-0, 0.00 ERA) to the mound against Villanova.

Raleigh, Sansone Spark Seminoles in Extra Inning Thriller.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Freshman backstop Cal Raleigh came through with a clutch sacrifice fly to right field with one out in the 14th inning to complete Florida State's 11-10 come-from-behind victory against Villanova on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium on Wednesday evening.

The Seminoles set the table for Raleigh when Dylan Busby led off the final inning with a walk, before being called out at second on a fielder's choice by Tyler Holton. Holton advanced to second on a wild pitch and moved 90-feet away on a single to the shortstop by Ben DeLuzio. It was there that Raleigh lifted the ball to right field, scoring Horton for the walk-off victory.

Senior John Sansone also played a key role in the rally as he kept the game alive for Florida State (6-2) one inning earlier with a two-out single through the left side of the Wildcat infield, scoring DeLuzio and Holton for the 10-all tie.

Sansone capped off his second multi-hit performance of the season by going 2-of-6 from the plate with three RBI. He joined by the trio of DeLuzio (2-6, 2 RBI, run), Dylan Busby (2-4, RBI, 2 runs) and Quincy Nieporte (2-4, RBI).

Seven Seminole pitchers took the mound against Villanova (2-6), including Will Zirzow who posted his first victory of the season. Starter Cobi Johnson gave way to Alec Byrd in the fourth inning, after allowing five earned runs, four hits and three walks along with a pair of strikeouts. Byrd limited the Wildcat hitters to one hit and one earned run in two innings and was followed by Chase Haney.

The combination of Haney and Matthew Kinney were responsible for two earned runs, one hit and three walks as the Noles entered the seventh. It was there that Tyler Warmoth took over on the hill, striking out six Villanova batters in the next 3.1 innings, while allowing only one hit and one walk.

Jim Voyles relieved Warmoth in the 11th inning, also striking out six hitters. Zirzow came on in the top of the 14th inning and quickly struck out two Villanova batters to earn the victory. The 22 Florida State strikeouts are three shy of the program record 25, set in 1956 against Furman.

The Seminole bats were alive early with three runs in the first inning, highlighted by Sansone double down the left field line that scored Walls from second. Two innings later, with a two-run advantage, Bryan Bussey extended the Florida State lead to 6-2 with a single to left field that plated Darren Miller and Busby.

Villanova answered in the fourth, knotting the game at six-all, behind a pair of home runs from Max Beerman and David Gulati. The Wildcats eventually grabbed an 8-6 lead in the sixth on a fielder's choice to the shortstop by Todd Czinege that brought home Emmanuel Morris.

Sal Fradella (0-1) took the loss for the Wildcats, who despite sending eight pitchers to the mound managed only four strikeouts and walked 14 Florida State hitters.

Florida State returns to action on Friday evening against St. John's when it sends Mike Compton (1-1, 1.69 ERA) to the mound. He will be followed on the weekend by Drew Carlton (2-0, 1.64) and Cole Sands (2-0, 0.90).

Seminole Offense Explodes in 16-4 Win Over St. John's.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida State baseball team topped double figures for the fifth time this season when it posted a 16-4 victory over St. John's in the series opener on Friday evening on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

The Seminoles, who picked up their seventh win of the campaign, had five players with multiple RBI, including Dylan Busby who led the way with three, following a 2-for-4 outing.

Joining Busby with multiple RBI were Taylor Walls (2-3, 2 RBI), John Sansone (2-3, 2 RBI), Ben DeLuzio (2-3, 2 RBI) and Darren Miller (2-3, 2 RBI). That collection was primarily responsible for the second 10-run inning of the season, and first since the season opener against Rhode Island, as Florida State put 10 runs across in the fifth to put the game out of reach.

With a solid offensive and defensive support cast, starter Mike Compton earned his second win of the season. The redshirt senior went six innings, allowing four hits and two earned runs, while striking out five Red Storm batters.

"There is no way that I can say that I expected this," said head coach Mike Martin. "This is one of those games that just got away from St. John's, a very good Regional team who played Arkansas for the championship last year. This just happened to be our night and we got a lot of key hits in the inning that we got four runs and Michael (Compton) pitched extremely well."

He was followed on the mound by Taylor Blatch, who saw his first action of the season, along with Ronnie Ramirez and Andy Ward. Ramirez and Ward held the Red Storm hitless and combined for two strikeouts in 2.1 innings of work.

Busby drove in the first runs for the Seminoles in the fourth inning when he singled into left, scoring Cal Raleigh and Sansone. DeLuzio followed with a double to right field, bringing home both Busby and Gage West to make for a 4-0 Florida State advantage.

Compton preserved the scoreless game in the top of the fourth with a 1-2-3 inning, before Florida State's offense exploded for 10 runs on six hits in the bottom half of the inning. The onslaught began with a two-run home run by Taylor Walls and continued when Busby singled to the shortstop to plate Raleigh and Quincy Nieporte.

After a Gage West sacrifice fly to right field, which scored Sansone from third, DeLuzio reached base with a bunt single. That was followed by Miller, who lifted a double to right centerfield to score both Busby and DeLuzio for the 11-0 Seminole lead. Three batters later Sansone got into the action with a two-run single to left field that brought home Walls and Miller. The final run crossed the plate via a walk by Jackson Lueck.

The Red Storm (2-5) put two runs across in sixth inning, which came on a double to left field by Michael Donadio, and two more in the seventh, following a single by Josh Shaw, making for a 10-run contest.

However, Florida State answered with runs in the seventh and eighth, to make for the final 16-4 score.

Carlton Key In 9-2 Florida State Win Over St. John’s.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Sophomore Drew Carlton hurled seven innings, allowing six hits and one earned run, to help Florida State post a 9-2 victory over visiting St. John’s on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium on Saturday evening.

Carlton, who improved to 3-0 on the season, finished with three strikeouts and a pair of walks as he lowered his ERA to 1.50. He was relieved in the eighth by Matthew Kinney who allowed just one hit in the final two innings.

While the sophomore right hander performed well on the mound, the combination of Gage West (3-3, RBI, double), Taylor Walls (2-4, 2 RBI) and Quincy Nieporte (2-4, 2 RBI) provided the offense at the plate.

Senior captain John Sansone added to his team-leading RBI total this season (20) with a single to left field in the seventh inning, scoring Darren Miller on the play. He also reached base for the 23rd straight game, breaking his own personal mark that was set over the course of his freshman and sophomore seasons.

“Drew Carlton pitched beautifully,” said head coach Mike Martin. “Drew is the one that kept everything in perspective. He didn’t go out there and get behind hitters or throw good pitches in certain situations. He pitched very smart and Mike Bell (pitching coach) did a great job of calling the game.”

Florida State answered a first inning run by St. John’s (2-6) with a pair of two-out run scoring doubles by Cal Raleigh and Gage West in the bottom half of the frame to take a 2-1 lead.

St. John’s eventually knotted the game at two-all in the sixth when Aidan McDermott reached on an error at second, scoring Josh Shaw from second.

The Seminoles retaliated in the home half of the sixth, taking the lead on a single to right field by walls that scored Ben DeLuzio from third. That was followed by a single through the left side of the infield by Sansone, which brought home Darren Miller.

Nieporte added to the lead with a single to right field, scoring Sansone and Walls as Florida State forged ahead 6-2.

The Seminoles stretched the advantage to five runs in the seventh, following a grounder to first by Walls, and tacked on two more in the eighth for the final tally.

Joe Nellis (0-2) took the loss for St. John’s, who allowed 13 hits and nine walks by Florida State. All but one run was earned for the Red Storm staff.

St. John's Takes Rubber Match Game Against Seminoles.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - John Sansone was one of three Florida State hitters with multiple hits, finishing 2-for-4, but it was the combination of St. John's pitchers Ryan McAuliffe and Thomas Hackimer that proved to be the difference in the Red Storm's 5-1 victory on Sunday at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Sansone, whose afternoon included his fourth double on the season, reached base for the 24th straight contest. He was joined at the plate by Dylan Busby (2-4, run, double) and Dylan Busby (2-4, double). That combination, along with Cal Raleigh (1-5) and Gage West (1-5) made up the eight Florida State hits.

The Seminoles (8-3) sent six pitchers to the mound, including starter Cole Sands, who allowed four hits, three runs and one walk in his third career start. Alec Byrd followed out of the bullpen and went struck out three batters while walking two in 3.2 innings.

The collection of Chase Haney, Matthew Kinney, Jim Voyles and Cobi Johnson combined for six strikeouts in the final 3.2 innings, yielding only two hits, two runs and two walks.

Meanwhile, their counterparts on the St. John's (3-6) staff limited the Florida State offense to one earned run on eight hits. After going five innings, striking out two and allowing two walks, McAuliffe earned his first victory of the season. Hackimer completed the victory with a save as he converted seven strikeouts over 3.2 innings along with walking two Seminoles.

"It was a good weekend, just not a great weekend," said head coach Mike Martin. "Sometimes you just have to tip your hat to the other club and this team took advantage of every mistake we made as good ball clubs will do."

The Red Storm took a 2-0 lead in the first inning following back-to-back singles up the middle by Alex Caruso and Josh Shaw. Caruso scored the first run following a fielder's choice by Gui Gingras and Shaw shortly followed when John Valente reached on a fielding error.

St. John's added its third run in the second inning after Jamie Galazin tripled off the right field wall, scoring via a sacrifice bunt by Caruso.

The Seminoles missed out on a key scoring opportunity in the third inning when a bases loaded hit by Taylor Walls hit just foul, leaving three runners on base. However, Nieporte helped generate the first Florida State run in the fifth inning with a double to right center, scoring from third two plays later on a balk.

St. John's added the first of two insurance runs in the eighth with a Shaw single up the middle scored Donadio for the 4-1 lead. The next batter, Robbie Knightes, also single up the middle to plate Caruso for the final margin.

Nieporte, Truluck Highlight Seminoles' 12-4 Win Over USF.

TAMPA, FL - Quincy Nieporte, who finished 3-for-4 from the plate with three RBI, and Hank Truluck added a three-run home run to lead Florida State to a 12-4 victory over in-state foe USF on Tuesday evening.

Nieporte's performance included his second double of the season and a pair of singles in the first and fourth innings. Meanwhile, Truluck (1-3), who replaced Taylor Walls in the fourth inning, collected his three RBI on a towering home run to left field in the eighth inning. The home run, Truluck's first in the collegiate ranks, plated Ben DeLuzio and Matt Henderson.

Also key at the plate for Florida State (9-3) were Ben DeLuzio (2-5, run), Darren Miller (2-4, RBI) and John Sansone (1-2, three runs). Sansone moved his on-base streak to 25 games.

Freshman right hander Chase Haney grabbed his first win after holding the Bulls (6-6) to one hit over two innings. He also struck out four of the nine USF batters that he faced.

Fellow newcomer Tyler Holton, making his second start for the Noles, tallied six strikeouts in three innings on the mound. He yielded three hits and three runs in the no decision.

The combination of Ed Voyles, Will Zirzow and Tyler Warmoth combined for six strikeouts and limited the USF offense to one run on four hits.

"Tyler Holton didn't pitch poorly, he just struggled with his control," said head coach Mike Martin. "Haney and the bullpen of Voyles and Zirzow were also impressive for us tonight. Quincy is really starting to see the ball well and he was very instrumental in this win."

Nieporte put the first run on the board for the Noles in the first inning with a single to right past the USF defense that scored Taylor Walls from second for the early 1-0 advantage.

After a bases clearing double by David Villar in the third provided USF with a 3-1 advantage, Nieporte delivered a single to left centerfield for Florida State, scoring Henderson from second. Two batters later, with the bases loaded, Gage West capitalized on a throwing error by Jonah Garrison to bring home Sansone and Nieporte for the 4-3 Seminole lead.

Florida State tacked on three runs in the fifth inning, taking advantage of a walk, a throwing error on a sacrifice bunt and consecutive hit batters in succession to score the first run. Cal Raleigh brought home Truluck for the three-run advantage on a fielder's choice. The Seminoles stretched the lead to 7-3 after Sansone slid past the tag of USF catcher Levi Borders on a wild pitch.

Florida State followed a scoreless sixth by adding one run in the seventh. With one out Sansone drew a walk and moved to third on a double to left by Nieporte. Raleigh followed with a walk, loading the base pads, before a Gage West sacrifice fly to centerfield scored Sansone for the lone run of the inning.

Seminoles Combine For No-Hitter Against Toledo.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The trio of Cole Sands, Cobi Johnson and Jim Voyles combined for the ninth no-hitter in Florida State history as the Seminoles earned a 3-2 victory over Toledo on a game-winning bunt by Matt Henderson on Wednesday evening at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Sands, Johnson and Voyles, who struck out eight Rocket hitters, became the first pitchers to combine for a no-hitter since Gene Ammann and Lin Garrett accomplished the feat against Wake Forest on March 27, 1968.

Knotted at two-all in the bottom of the ninth, Darren Miller reached base on a lead-off walk. He moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Hank Truluck and trotted into third following a wild pitch by Toledo’s Michael Jacob. Henderson, facing a full count, laid a bunt single down the first base line to bring home Miller for the game-winner.

That capped off a solid night at the plate for Henderson, who finished 2-for-4, joining Miller (2-2, run) and Cal Raleigh (2-3, run) with multi-hit performances. Also instrumental at the plate for Florida State (10-3) were Gage West and Ben DeLuzio, responsible for the remaining RBI.

“It was a game that we played with a lot of desire and determination,” said head coach Mike Martin. “I also can’t say enough about the pitchers (Sands, Johnson, Jim Voyles). Jim deserved that win because of the way he pitched the last four innings for us—it was truly a thing of beauty. He kept everything in check and when you look at the numbers he didn’t allow a baserunner.”

Raleigh, who began the game as the designated hitter, extended the Florida State first inning with a two-out single up the middle. West moved Raleigh into scoring position, also with a single through the middle, before DeLuzio laced a single past the right side of the infield to score Raleigh from second for the early 1-0 advantage.

Toledo put its first runners on the base paths in the fourth inning when Matt Hansen was hit by a Johnson pitch. Deion Tansel followed with a walk and the pair provided the Rockets a one-run lead as they scored on a Taylor Walls throwing error in Dan Zuchowski’s attempt to reach. Johnson held the Rockets to only two runs as he closed out the frame with a strikeout of Ryan Callahan.

Walls opened Florida State’s sixth inning with a double off the right field wall, moving to third base when John Sansone laid down a sacrifice bunt down the first base line. After an intentional walk of Raleigh, West brought the game to a two-all tie with a groundout to second base, scoring Walls.

Four Seminoles Homer In 8-2 Win Over Georgia Tech.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Four different Florida State hitters, including Darren Miller, Cal Raleigh, Ben DeLuzio and John Sansone, hit home runs as the Seminoles downed previously unbeaten Georgia Tech by an 8-2 margin on Friday night at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Miller (1-4, 3 RBI, HR) and DeLuzio (1-2, RBI, HR), hitting seventh and eighth in the Seminole lineup, rounded the bases on back-to-back home runs in a five-run third inning. Raleigh (3-3, RBI, 2 runs) followed with a solo home run in the fifth inning and Sansone, who finished 3-of-5 (RBI) from the plate, recorded his third home run of the season in the seventh.

It is the first time that Florida State (11-3, 1-0 ACC) has smacked four home runs in a game since April 14, 2015, against the in-state rival Gators.

Redshirt senior hurler Mike Compton (2-1) provided his team with consistency on the mound by striking out six Yellow Jackets over seven innings. He scattered six hits, allowed two earned runs and one walk in 110 pitches. Teammate Ed Voyles completed the win by throwing the final two innings, surrendering two hits while recording three strikeouts.

Taylor Walls led off the home half of the first with a double off the right field wall. He scored on a ground out to third by Sansone, which included a throwing error by Georgia Tech’s Tristin English, who attempted to get Walls on the play.

Georgia Tech (12-1) starting hurler Brandon Gold (1-1) gave himself run support in the second inning with a solo home run over the right field wall to knot the game at one-all.

Florida State’s offense exploded in the third inning after Quincy Nieporte reached base on a throwing error by third baseman Trevor Craport. Raleigh followed with a walk and Gage West loaded the bases with a single into left field.

Dylan Busby extended the third inning when he scored Nieporte on a grounder to first, giving the Noles a 2-1 advantage. Miller extended the lead to four by sending a towering three-run home run over the left field wall. DeLuzio followed with a home run over the left centerfield wall, marking the first back-to-back home runs by the Seminoles since Nieporte and DJ Stewart accomplished the feat in the ninth inning against Clemson on May 16, 2015.

The Yellow Jackets capitalized on a double into right field by Kel Johnson, scoring Connor Justus, to trim the deficit to 6-2. However, Raleigh continued the home run barrage in the home half of the fifth when he sent a shot over the right field fence.

Two innings later, Sansone capped off Florida State scoring when he belted a leadoff home run to left centerfield.

Seminoles Rally to Down Georgia Tech 14-9.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – A home run by sophomore Dylan Busby sparked a six-run fifth inning for Florida State, who downed ACC rival Georgia Tech for the second time in as many days. The Seminoles (12-3, 2-0 ACC) captured their 23rd ACC opening series, since joining the league in 1992, by a 14-9 margin on Saturday afternoon at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Busby, who finished 2-for-5, connected on his 10th career home run as he led all Florida State hitters with three RBI. He was joined at the plate by Taylor Walls (2-5, 2 RBI, 3 runs) and John Sansone (3-4, RBI, 3 runs).

Meanwhile, hurler Chase Haney notched his second victory of the season in relief of starter Drew Carlton. Haney, who posted two strikeouts in 3.2 innings, held the Georgia Tech (12-2, 0-2 ACC) to one hit and one walk. He was followed on the hill by Jim Voyles, who yielded one hit while striking out three, along with Ronnie Ramirez and Will Zirzow.

“I am very proud of our ball club,” said head coach Mike Martin. “Down five to a club that is very competitive, obviously well coached, and to not panic and not lose their focus was a good win for us tonight. Every conference win is a ‘big win’, but when you’re down five and the other team is playing absolutely beautiful baseball, it just a real credit to our team to get that done today.”

The Seminoles erased the five-run deficit in the fifth inning when they sent 10 batters to the plate, tallying six runs and four hits in the process. Gage West opened the frame with a single up the middle and quickly returned to the dugout when Busby hit a two-run home run to left center for the first Florida State runs. Ben DeLuzio continued the fifth inning with a bunt back to the pitcher, who made an errant throw to first and allowed the speedster to eventually reach third on the play.

DeLuzio trimmed the Georgia Tech lead two, scoring on a sacrifice bunt by Matt Henderson, before Walls singled up the middle for the third hit of the frame. A Sansone walk, coupled with a balk by Burton Dulaney, along with an intentional pass issued to Cal Raleigh loaded the bases for Quincy Nieporte. Nieporte reached on a two-base error to tie the game at five-all and Raleigh scored the go-head run on a wild pitch with West at the plate.

Florida State tacked on three runs in the seventh, recording the first on a single to left field by Sansone, which also resulted in a fielding error by left fielder Keenan Innis, plating Henderson and Walls. The senior third baseman crossed the plate, giving the Noles a 9-5 advantage, on an RBI single up the middle by Raleigh.

A five-run eighth inning provided Florida State with its seventh double-digit outing of the season. The scoring began with a single through the left side of the infield, plating Nick Graganella and Donovan Petrey. Two batters later Jackson Lueck brought home Walls from third and a sacrifice fly to right field by Hank Truluck scored Sansone. Busby closed out scoring for Florida State with a single to center, bringing home Raleigh, for the 13th hit of the afternoon.

Georgia Tech ended the Seminoles’ stretch of 14 unanswered runs with four in the top of the ninth. The Yellow Jackets took advantage of singles from Coleman Poje and Wade Bailey to move within seven. After a single up the middle by Connor Justus brought home Bailey and Poje, Martin turned to Will Zirzow to close out the game and give Florida State its second ACC win of the campaign.

Four hits, including a leadoff double by Bailey, allowed Georgia Tech to take a 3-0 lead after the first inning. Bailey’s double to centerfield was followed by a single to right by Matt Gonzalez, plating Bailey. Kel Johnson sent a double down the left field line, scoring Gonzalez, to give the Jackets a two-run lead. Joey Bart was responsible for the final run of the frame, reaching on an error at second base, as Johnson scored from third.

The Ramblin’ Wreck’s offense stretched the lead to four in the fourth inning with a series of doubles by Ryan Peurifoy and Justus. Justus scored Peurifoy on the ninth Georgia Tech hit of the game and rounded the bases himself on a fielder’s choice by Johnson for the 5-0 advantage.

Noles Sweep Series Against Georgia Tech.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Florida State’s Dylan Busby cracked his second home run in as many days as the Seminoles completed a weekend sweep of Georgia Tech with an 8-3 victory on Sunday at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium. It marks the fifth ACC opening sweep for Florida State in since the 2010 season.

Busby highlighted a 2-for-3 outing, which also included a triple, by recording two RBI and sending his second home run of the season over the fence in back-to-back games. It’s the second time that Busby has hit home runs in back-to-back games since cracking three dingers in three games against Virginia and Alabama State in mid-March last season.

Quincy Nieporte (1-4, 2 RBI), John Sansone (2-4, 2 RBI, double) and Cal Raleigh (2-5, 2 RBI) were also instrumental in Florida State’s offensive success at the plate as they helped the Seminoles post a .382 batting average over the weekend.

Cole Sands (3-1) provided stability on the mound as he struck out five Yellow Jackets over 5.1 innings, surrendering four hits and three runs in the process. He was followed by the trio of Ed Voyles, Cobi Johnson and Tyler Warmoth. That unit posted six strikeouts, two for each pitcher, and five walks for the remainder of the game.

“I am very satisfied because the ball club didn’t go out and go through the motions,” said head coach Mike Martin. “They went out with the intention of getting it done. It makes all of our staff proud to be a Seminole when they go out and play like they did.”

Florida State capitalized on three straight hits in the home half of the first, using a single to the shortstop by Sansone to move Taylor Walls to third. Raleigh followed by sending a single through the right side of the infield, scoring Walls and moving Sansone to third. Nieporte continued the trend with a single to right, plating Sansone, as the Noles took a 2-0 advantage.

Gage West roped a two-out single past the right side of the infield in the third inning. Busby followed knocking a triple off the centerfield wall, scoring West from first, as Florida State assumed the three-run lead.

Matt Gonzalez opened up the first scoring inning for the Yellow Jackets by reaching base after being hit by a pitch. After stealing second, Gonzalez came home on a single through the left side by Joey Bart. The Seminoles ended the scoring threat with a double play.

The Seminoles’ offense struck again in the fourth inning, using a series of hit batters and a walk to load the bases for Raleigh. Raleigh sent his second hit of the day to right centerfield, scoring Matt Henderson. Nieporte followed with a sacrifice to center that brought home Walls for the 5-1 score.

Florida State enjoyed its third multiple run inning of the game in the fifth, which began with a solo home run to right field by Busby. Two outs later Henderson followed with a single up the middle and moved into third on a double into left field by Walls. Sansone brought home his teammates with a bases clearing triple off the right centerfield wall, extending the lead to seven.

Gonzalez opened the sixth inning with a single through the left side of the infield. Kel Johnson followed with a walk and after a double steal both runners were in scoring position. Two batters later, Bart double into right field to plate both Gonzalez and Johnson to move within five of the Noles.

Starter Jonathan Hughes (3-1) took the loss for the Yellow Jackets after allowing five earned runs and three on six hits in 3.2 innings.

Noles Pound Out Nine Hits in Setback to Florida.

GAINESVILLE, FL - Florida State capped off the game with nine hits, including three from Dylan Busby and two off the bat of John Sansone, but it was Florida that came away with the victory, 6-0, at McKethan Stadium in the first of three meetings between the two schools this season.

Busby (3-4), the lone Florida State hitter with an extra base hit in the game, was joined on offense by Sansone (2-4) as the only Seminoles with multiple hits.

Florida State (13-4) snapped a season-long five-game winning streak with Tyler Holton (0-2) on the hill. The freshman left hander tallied four strikeouts, however yielded four runs on five hits along with a pair of walks. Reliever Matthew Kinney was responsible for the remaining two Gator runs.

The 14th ranked Seminoles received solid performances out of the bullpen from Chase Haney, Jim Voyles, Alec Byrd and Cobi Johnson. The quartet surrendered only three hits and one walk while posting five strikeouts.

"It's one of those nights that Florida deserved to win," said head coach Mike Martin. "You have to feel like you learned something even though you got shutout. It's a humbling game that you play a lot of and there are going to be nights that you are humbled and tonight that happened."

Florida (18-1) scored the game's first run in the second when left fielder Nelson Maldonado connected on his second home run of the season, sending the ball over the left field wall. The No. 1 ranked Gators tacked on two more runs the following inning when a single to left field by JJ Schwarz was followed by a home run over to left by Peter Alonso for the 3-0 advantage.

Jonathan India opened the fourth inning with a double down the left field line. Two batters later he was thrown out when trying to score from third as Busby allowed Buddy Reed to reach base on a fielder's choice, assisting on the out of India with Cal Raleigh. A steal and error on coverage at second base allowed Reed to reach third before a single up the middle by Schwarz plated the Gators' fourth run.

Florida tacked on two more runs in the fifth, coupling a single into right centerfield by Mike Rivera with a hit by pitch and a walk to load the bases for India. India responded with a single into left field, scoring Rivera, as the bases remained loaded for Guthrie. Guthrie struck out swinging, however a controversial wild pitch by Ed Voyles brought home Jeremy Vasquez for the 6-0 Florida lead.

Gator starter Dane Dunning (2-0) earned the victory after holding Florida State scoreless in 5.2 innings on the mound. He surrendered seven hits and one walk to go along with five strikeouts.

Schwarz (3-5, RBI, run), India (2-4, RBI) and Alonso (1-3, 2 RBI, run) led the Florida offense that also came away with nine hits.

Sansone Highlights 17-4 Seminole Win Over Pitt.

PITTSBURGH, PA - For the eighth time this season and second time in ACC action the Florida State baseball team scored double-digit runs, this time as it downed Pittsburgh 17-4 in Friday night's series opener at Charles L. Cost Field.

The Seminoles, who moved to 14-4 overall and 4-0 in league play, were led at the plate by Pennsylvania native John Sansone (2-5, run, double) who established a new single-game career-high in RBI with five. Joining him at the plate with multiple hits were Gage West (2-4, RBI, double) and Matt Henderson (2-3) who also tallied two runs and two RBI.

Senior hurler Mike Compton, who surrendered five hits and four earned runs in 4.1 innings, also posted a pair of strikeouts as he passed volunteer coach Clyde Keller on the all-time strikeout list. He was followed on the mound by Alec Byrd, who notched one out in one at-bat.

Matthew Kinney followed Byrd, who suffered an ankle injury, and collected his first win of the season as he held the Panthers (8-7, 1-3 ACC) hitless in 1.1 innings. Kinney gave way to Ed Voyles, who earned the save after yielding only one hit and one walk, while striking out four in three innings.

"I am pleased with the way that we played the game," said head coach Mike Martin. "We got ahead and gave up four and came right back and answered that which is great. We have to also understand that we were given some extra outs, but at the same time we took advantage of them and I am very happy for this ball club."

Taylor Walls drew a leadoff walk and Sansone was hit by a pitch as Florida State quickly put two runners on base in the first inning. Dylan Busby sent the first hit of the game past the right side of the Pitt infield, scoring Walls from second. West doubled down the right field line to score Sansone, putting two runners in scoring position for Quincy Nieporte.

Nieporte continued the string of hits, lifting a single to right, as he scored Busby from third for the 3-0 advantage. Darren Miller brought home the final run of the frame on a double play grounder in the infield as West crossed the plate before the third out.

Pittsburgh collected its first hit of the game when Ron Sherman roped a triple into left field to open the third. Frank Maldonado reached base after being hit by a pitch, putting runners on the corners, before a sacrifice fly to left off the bat of Jacob Wright scored Sherman from third. Solid defense behind Compton held Panthers to one run.

The Seminoles tacked on two more runs in the fourth inning after Nieporte reached on a walk and eventually advanced to third on a throwing error by Matt Johnson that allowed Miller to reach second. Consecutive sacrifice flies by DeLuzio and Henderson brought home back-to-back runs as Florida State assumed the 6-1 lead.

Three straight hits to lead off the Pittsburgh fourth inning, including singles by Alex Kowalczyk and David Yanni, set up a three-run home run over the right field wall as the Panthers trimmed the deficit to a pair.

Florida State reached double figures in runs with a four-run sixth inning that began with a leadoff bunt single down the third base line by West. Nieporte followed with a fielder's choice, moving to second on a throwing error, and scored two batters later when Henderson sent a single into left field for the 7-4 lead. Walls continues the inning with a walk before Sansone sends a bases clearing single past the left side of the infield scoring DeLuzio, Henderson and Walls for the six-run difference.

The Seminoles enjoyed another multiple run inning in the seventh, beginning when Busby scored the first run after reaching on an error and stole two bases, including home. Miller crossed the plate for the second run of the frame, on a double by DeLuzio, after reaching on a walk. Sansone was again responsible for three runs in the inning as he moved into second on a fielding error by Schnurbusch which allowed DeLuzio, Walls and Henderson to score in succession.

Raleigh, Walls Pace Florida State Offense in 10-2 Win.

PITTSBURGH, PA - Cal Raleigh was responsible for four RBI and Taylor Walls enjoyed a perfect 4-for-4 outing at the plate as the pair led Florida State to a 10-2 victory over ACC foe Pittsburgh on Saturday afternoon at Charles L. Cost Field.

Raleigh, who capped off a 2-for-3 performance with both a double and a triple, was the lone Seminole with multiple RBI. Meanwhile, Walls finished with four singles and a pair of runs as the Florida State offense topped double figures for the second time in as many days.

Three other Seminoles (15-4, 5-0 ACC) also had doubles in the contest including Quincy Nieporte (2-4), Ben DeLuzio (2-4, RBI) and Hank Truluck (1-1).

The pitching combination of Drew Carlton (4-0) and Jim Voyles, who earned the first save of his Florida State career, limited the Panthers to six hits, two walks and one earned run. Carlton also tallied four strikeouts, while Voyles crossed out Pittsburgh batters on six occasions.

"We are very pleased with the way that we played and more importantly that we didn't let any outside weather interfere with our goal to play solid baseball," said head coach Mike Martin. "We got outstanding pitching from Drew and Jim, which makes me proud that we were able to get it done."

Florida State's offense broke through in the fifth following a leadoff double into left field by DeLuzio. A walk by Matt Henderson coupled with a base hit bunt by Walls loaded the bases for John Sansone.

Sansone, who tied the game at one-all when he was hit by a pitch, was followed in the lineup by Raleigh who broke the game open with a bases clearing triple into centerfield as the Noles assumed the 4-1 lead. Raleigh came home two batters later Raleigh scored on a sacrifice fly to center by Gage West who provided Florida State with the four-run advantage.

The Panthers got one run back in the home half of the fifth when they took advantage of a throwing error by Sansone, scoring Jacob Wright from first after reaching base on a walk.

Florida State put its sixth run on the board in the sixth as Henderson reached base on a one-out walk. After swiping second, Henderson and Walls advanced on a double steal with Sansone at the plate, with Henderson advancing home from third following a throwing error by Pitt catcher Manny Pazos.

Another run crossed the plate in the seventh for the Seminoles, who upped their lead to 7-2, after Nieporte reached on a double into left centerfield. He was replaced by Jackson Lueck, who moved to 90-feet away on a fly ball into centerfield by Darren Miller. DeLuzio registered his lone RBI of the day on a single into right field, plating Lueck.

His third single of the afternoon put Walls on base for the Noles in the top of the eighth. Two batters later, with Walls at second after a grounder by Sansone, Raleigh added to his RBI total with a double into left centerfield, scoring Walls for the 8-2 Florida State advantage. Raleigh eventually scored on a wild pitch from third with Lueck at the plate.

Walls tacked on the final run of the game when he brought home Hank Truluck from second with a base hit into right centerfield.

Pittsburgh led for the first time in the series in the third inning when Wright led off the inning with a walk and quickly moved into second on a stolen base. Charles LeBlanc plated Wright from second with a single into right field as the Panthers assumed the 1-0 lead.

Walls, Seminoles Face Tough Day with Pittsburgh.

PITTSBURGH, PA – Florida State’s Taylor Walls closed out a weekend in which he went 8-for-10 from the plate by hitting 2-for-3 on Sunday afternoon, but it was a solid outing on the mound by Pittsburgh’s T.J. Zeuch that helped provide the Panthers with the 5-2 victory at Charles L. Cost Field.

Walls (2-3, run) was the only Seminole hitter with a hit on the day. Teammate Quincy Nieporte was responsible for one RBI, which came fourth inning on a ground out, as the other run was scored on an error.

Seminoles’ Hurler Cole Sands slipped to 3-2 on the season after yielding three runs, one earned, on four hits. Sands did notch five strikeouts before giving way to the bullpen cast of Will Zirzow, Chase Haney and Tyler Warmoth. That trio combined for five hits, two runs and struck out five Pitt hitters.

Frank Maldonado (3-4, RBI) and Alex Kowalczyk (1-3, 2 RBI, HR) led the way for Pittsburgh (9-8, 2-4 ACC) offensively. Kowalcyzk’s lone hit came on a homer to left in the seventh inning.

Zeuch earned a win in his first start of the campaign as he allowed two runs, two walks, one hit to go along with eight strikeouts. He was followed on the mound by Isaac Mattson, who earned the save, after limiting Florida State (15-5, 5-1 ACC) to one hit and converting four strikeouts.

Florida State leadoff its third consecutive game this weekend with a walk by Taylor Walls, who quickly moved into scoring position following a wild pitch. He crossed the plate as John Sansone reached on a throwing error for the first Seminole run.

The Panthers countered with two runs in the bottom half of the frame, following a throwing error at third, as Jacob Wright and Charles LeBlanc rounded the base pads for the early lead.

Sansone again reached on an error in the fourth inning, moving into second after Cal Raleigh reached on a walk. Gage West laid down a sacrifice bunt to move each runner up and Sansone scored on a grounder to the left side of the infield by Quincy Nieporte, knotting the contest at 2-2.

Pittsburgh regained the lead in the fifth, 3-2, when LeBlanc singled up the middle to put the first runner on base. A stolen base coupled with a walk and a hit by pitch LeBlanc came home on a sacrifice fly to left off the bat of David Yanni.

Another Panther run came across in the sixth when back-to-back doubles to left field by Caleb Parry and Maldonado resulted in Parry scoring for the two-run advantage. That was followed by a home run over the left field wall by Kowalczyk in the seventh as the Pittsburgh lead reached 5-2.

Voyles Highlights Seminoles' Win Over UCF.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State's Jim Voyles tossed five innings of nearly flawless relief to lead Florida State to its 16th win of the season Tuesday as the Seminoles (16-5) downed visiting UCF 7-2.

Starter Tyler Holton gave way to Voyles with the Noles trailing the Knights (12-10) 2-1 after the top of the third. Over the next five innings the junior right-hander would yield only one hit and one walk, while striking out three, to improve to 2-0 on the season.

Cal Raleigh (1-3, 2 RBI) and Dylan Busby (2-3, double) were among the primary leaders for Florida State (16-5) at the plate. They were joined by the duo of Quincy Nieporte (1-3) and Ben DeLuzio (2-4), who both contributed two RBI.

"We didn't want Jim (Voyles) to go as long as he did, but he kept getting stronger and stronger," said head coach Mike Martin. "It is a credit to Mike Bell (pitching coach) and the great job that he's done developing our pitchers."

After UCF took a 1-0 lead in the top of the second, Busby led off the home half of the inning with a double down the left field line. DeLuzio drove home Busby from third on a single through the left side of the infield, knotting the game at 1-1.

UCF regained the lead in the top of the third when Luke Hamblin hit a 1-0 pitch over the right field wall but it was the last lead of the night for the Knights as FSU scored the final six runs of the game, with five coming on the bottom of the third.

The Seminoles opened the third with a Henderson double into center field. Two batters later, following a walk by Taylor Walls, John Sansone knotted the score at two-all with a double to left that brought home Henderson. Raleigh extended the inning when he slapped a single into right field, scoring Walls and Sansone, providing the Seminoles with the 4-2 advantage.

After a double into left field by Busby advanced Raleigh to third, Nieporte scored the freshman catcher on a grounder. DeLuzio followed with his second RBI of the game on a single to left, scoring Busby, to cap off a five-run, five-hit inning for the Noles as they took a 6-2 lead.

FSU added a final run in the seventh on a Nieporte sacrifice fly that plated Raleigh scoring his second run of the game.

Seminoles Walk-Off With A Win In The 11th Following Walls' RBI.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Taylor Walls sent a single through the left side of the infield and scored Matt Henderson from second as Florida State (17-5) won 5-4 over UCF in the 11th inning Wednesday night. The walk-off win capped a sweep for the Seminoles in the two-game, midweek series.

Walls only hit of the night turned out to be timed perfectly for FSU as he was one of four Seminoles with an RBI joining Dylan Busby (2-5, HR), Quincy Nieporte (1-4) and Nick Graganella (1-2, double).

FSU used six pitchers on the night and the group combined for 14 strikeouts while yielding six hits and four earned runs. Freshman reliever Chase Haney (3-0) grabbed the win after recording a strikeout to close out the Knights in the 11th.

Starter Ed Voyles scattered five hits and one earned run while striking out four in four innings of work but did not factor into the decision.

"Our pitching was not only excellent but gutty," said head coach Mike Martin. "We had a closer (Warmoth) who was called on to pitch three innings and he tweaked his neck. I went out there to check on him and he had no thoughts of giving the ball to anyone else. Haney is another example-after throwing 29 pitches yesterday-and gets a big out for us to get out of the eleventh."

Ben DeLuzio got the Seminoles going early scoring the first run of the game in the second inning. DeLuzio reached on a walk, stole his third base of the series and then scored on a double down the right field by Graganella.

UCF retaliated in the top of the fourth when Austin Griffin lifted his sixth home run of the year over the left field wall, tying the game at 1-1.

The two teams remained tied until the seventh. The Seminoles retook the lead when Busby led off the inning with a home run to left field. Two batters later DeLuzio reached base on a single up the middle, scoring from second on a throwing error.

UCF took its first lead of the game in the eighth after Gellinger reached first base on a walk. Two batters later, Eli Putnam also drew a walk to set the stage for Griffin who hit his second home run of the afternoon, a three-run shot, into the left field bullpen giving the Knights a 4-3 advantage.

FSU tied the game at 4-4 in the eighth when Cal Raleigh reached base on a walk. A balk moved Raleigh to second where he was replaced by pinch runner Hank Truluck who came around to score on a single up the middle by Nieporte setting the stage for Walls' 11th inning heroics.

Freshmen Raleigh And Lueck Power FSU To 8-5 Win Over NCST.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State's freshman duo of Cal Raleigh and Jackson Lueck combined for five RBI and were vital in helping the Seminoles (18-5, 6-1) establish a six-run lead in the first inning as they topped NC State (16-8, 3-4) 8-5 on Friday evening.

Friday night's win was the first of three games in the next 24 hours for the Seminoles as the series was adjusted for the remainder of the weekend. The two teams will now play a doubleheader on Saturday starting at 12:00 pm. As of now, the plan is to play game three of the series (game two of the day) 45 minutes after the conclusion of the first game.

In the series opener, FSU relied on Raleigh (2-3, 2 RBI, HR) and Lueck (1-2, 3 RBI), who each had a double in the contest. They were joined among the Seminole offensive leaders by Dylan Busby, who capped off a 1-for-3 outing with two RBI.

On the mound, FSU starter Mike Compton pitched 3.1 innings, allowing six hits and four earned runs while striking out two. He was followed by Jim Voyles who surrender just his first earned run of the season, while striking out three Wolfpack batters in just over two innings and 41 pitches.

Matthew Kinney (2-0) relieved Voyles in the sixth and held seven NC State batters hitless over the next 2.1 innings. Tyler Warmoth then closed the door in the ninth with three strikeouts, helping FSU improve to 15-3 at home while picking up his first save of the season.

"It is one of those games that you go up 6-0 and you better not relax and think that you've got it all figured out, because they are going to come back at you," said head coach Mike Martin. "Our pitchers did an outstanding job and we got exceptional relief from Matthew Kinney and certainly were pleased with Jim Voyles."

The Seminoles, who exploded for six runs on five hits in the first inning, opened with a single to second by Taylor Walls. Two batters later Raleigh hit a double to right center, eventually reaching third as John Sansone was thrown out attempting to score from first. Gage West extended the inning with a walk and Busby followed with a single to third that scored Raleigh for the first run. West padded the FSU lead at 2-0 on a throwing error.

Quincy Nieporte reached on a two-out walk and Ben DeLuzio loaded the bases for Lueck, when he was hit by a pitch from NC State's Joe O'Donnell. Lueck took advantage with a bases clearing double that pushed the Seminole lead to 5-0. Two batters later, after Matt Henderson was struck by a pitch, Lueck advanced home on a single to left by Walls for the sixth run of the game.

NC State plated its first run in the top of the third when Brett Kinneman opened the inning with a single into right field. Kinneman moved to second on a ground out by Joe Dunand, before scoring two batters later on a single into left centerfield by Brock Deatherage.

Stephen Pitarra opened the fourth inning for the Wolfpack with a triple to right field. Chance Shepard followed with a single, plating Pitarra and Preston Palmeiro added the third straight hit for NC State as he moved Shepard to second.

Two batters later Kinneman connected on a double to centerfield, scoring Shepard. The Wolfpack then trimmed the lead to 6-4 as Joe Dunand brought Palmeiro home on a sacrifice fly to left field.

NC State cut into the lead once again in the sixth inning after both Palmeiro and Xavier LeGrant reached base on walks. Kinneman knocked a single into left field plating Palmeiro as the Wolfpack moved to within one at 6-5.

The Seminoles responded in the seventh putting the Wolfpack away as Raleigh gave Florida State a two-run lead when he sent a homerun over the left field wall scoring Sansone. The homerun tied the freshman with Busby and Sansone for the team lead with three.

Raleigh Homers Again But FSU Falls 3-2 To UF.

JACKSONVILLE, FL - Florida State's Cal Raleigh connected on his fourth home run of the season and Quincy Nieporte added an RBI single in the eighth inning, but Buddy Reed's RBI triple in the third inning proved to be the difference for Florida (24-3) as the Gators emerged with a 3-2 victory over the Seminoles (18-6) on Tuesday night at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville.

The Seminole offense was highlighted by the combination of Raleigh (1-2, RBI), Nieporte (1-4, RBI), Darren Miller (2-4, 2 doubles) and Jackson Lueck (2-4, double).

Florida State sent six pitchers to the mound, including Drew Carlton (4-1), who took his first loss of the season after surrendering two earned runs, two hits and three walks in two innings.

The Seminole bullpen was solid in relief of Carlton but the one run allowed turned out to be the difference in the game. In all, FSU's five relievers struck out six Florida batters as they held the offense to three hits and one run over the final six frames.

"We had a couple of opportunities, but you have to credit Florida because they did an impressive job of making pitches when they needed to," said head coach Mike Martin. "A prime example is when we had a man on third, with the middle part of our lineup, and they got out of the inning with two strikeouts."

Raleigh provided the offense early for the Seminoles when he lifted the first Jackson Kowar pitch that he saw over the right field wall. He became the third Florida State hitter this season, along with John Sansone and Dylan Busby, to hit home runs in consecutive games after leaving the yard against NC State on Friday evening.

Deacon Liput led off the second inning with a single into centerfield for the Gators and Mike Rivera countered Raleigh's solo shot with a two-run home run over the right field wall to provide Florida with the 2-1 advantage.

Jonathan India drew a walk to open the third inning and moved into second on a steal. India came home two batters later when Reed tripled into the right field corner to make for a 3-1 Gator lead.

Florida State briefly threatened in the fourth inning with a two-out hit by Lueck. That was followed by a double to right field by Miller. Lueck tried to score on the play but was tagged out at the plate on a relay throw from Dalton Guthrie.

Sansone sparked the Florida State lineup in the top of the eighth when he reached on an error at second base. Following a passed ball and a grounder to first in Raleigh's at-bat, Sansone moved to third with one out. Two batters later Nieporte blooped a two-out single into shallow centerfield to plate Sansone and make for the 3-2 final margin.

Kowar (3-0) emerged with the win for Florida after allowing one earned run over five innings. He limited the Seminoles to one walk and notched four strikeouts before giving way to reliever Brady Singer.

Singer tossed three innings and yielded one run on two hits while striking out three FSU batters. Shaun Anderson (S, 4) closed the door on the Seminole ninth inning.

Compton And Seminoles Blank BC 3-0.
Seventh-ranked FSU improves to 7-1 in ACC play.

CHESTNUT HILL, MA – Mike Compton tossed five innings and scattered three hits to earn his fourth victory of the season as No. 7 Florida State (19-6, 7-1 ACC) completed a 3-0 shutout victory over Boston College (14-10, 3-7 ACC) on Friday afternoon.

Compton (4-1), who didn’t allow multiple hits in the same inning, yielded only three hits and three walks as he held the Eagles scoreless. He was followed out of the bullpen by Jim Voyles who went three innings, facing the minimum nine batters, and finishing with one strikeout.

Seminole closer Tyler Warmoth (S, 2) took over for Voyles in the ninth and converted two strikeouts to preserve the first shutout for Florida State since a 6-0 victory over Louisville on May 23, 2015.

“Coach Mike Bell stresses to us to be mentally tough,” said Compton. “We have to be tough in tough situations and we go over it all the time. It happens in scrimmages before the season starts, when we are put in tough situations, to get us through things like we had today. Then hopefully the things that we endured today get us ready for postseason play, which is the main goal.”

Jackson Lueck was the lone Florida State hitter in the lineup with multiple hits after finishing 3-of-4 with a double and two singles. He also scored one of three Seminole runs in the contest.

Joining Lueck with solid performances from the plate were Ben DeLuzio (1-4, RBI, double) and Taylor Walls (1-4, RBI, double), who extended his career-long hitting streak to 13 games.

“I am very pleased that Mike Compton gave us exactly what we wanted and that was five strong innings,” said head coach Mike Martin. “Our bullpen has pitched very well and Jim Voyles did a great job when he came in, which allowed us to close the ball game with (Tyler) Warmoth. We would not be where we are without our pitching.”

After only two Florida State hits in the first four innings, Matt Henderson extended the top of the fifth inning with a two-out single to the right side of the infield. That was quickly followed by a double into left by Walls plating Henderson from first for the 1-0 advantage.

Lueck opened the Seminoles’ ninth by lifting a double off the right centerfield wall. Two batters later DeLuzio followed with a double into left field, scoring Lueck on the play, as FSU assumed the 2-0 lead. A fly out to right field by Darren Miller moved DeLuzio to third before an error at third base, during the Henderson at-bat, allowed the speedster to score the third Seminole run of the game.

Nieporte, Voyles Guide No. 8 FSU to Win over Red Raiders.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The eighth-ranked Florida State baseball team (20-6) pounded out nine hits and drew 10 walks as it topped double digits runs for the 10th time this season with a 10-1 victory over Texas Tech on Tuesday evening.

John Sansone (2-4, RBI, double) and Cal Raleigh (2-4, 2 runs) shared the team-high in hits, while Quincy Nieporte (1-4, 2 RBI) led the Seminoles in RBI, following a fifth inning homerun to left field.

The Seminoles trotted six pitchers to the mound, including Jim Voyles (3-0), who remains perfect on the season after striking out two Red Raider hitters and yielding only one hit as he lowered his ERA to 0.33.

"I am happy with the way that we kept our poise and get too far out of ourselves after swinging at some bad pitches early in the game," said head coach Mike Martin. "Another key is that we pitched extremely well tonight. Jim (Voyles) came in and did what needed to be done-which was hold them in check and give us a chance."

Florida State grabbed the early lead in the second inning when Ben DeLuzio drew a one-out walk and moved to second base on a single into centerfield by Darren Miller. After swiping his first base of the game, DeLuzio advanced to third with Nick Graganella at the plate. Graganella's sacrifice fly to right field brought DeLuzio home for the 1-0 lead.

Texas Tech knotted the game at 1-1 in the fourth when Tanner Gardner extended the inning with a two-out double into right field. Corey Raley quickly followed with a single into shallow centerfield, scoring Gardner from second.

DeLuzio again played a key role in FSU's offense as he led off the fourth inning with a walk. The speedster stole his second base in a game for the third time this season setting up Graganella with one out. After a dropped third strike allowed Graganella the chance to reach, DeLuzio scampered to third before eventually scoring on an errant throw as the Seminoles assumed the 2-1 advantage.

FSU added a pair of insurance runs in the fifth, pushing the lead to 4-1, after Raleigh prolonged the inning with a single into left centerfield. Cleanup hitter Nieporte followed by sending a 2-0 pitch over the left field wall for his first homerun of the season.

By virtue of four walks and a hit by pitch, FSU scored two runs in the sixth. DeLuzio reached base via a hit by pitch and advanced to second following a walk of Donovan Petrey. A failed pickoff attempt by Texas Tech catcher Tyler Floyd moved both runners up and with one out Matt Henderson loaded the bases with a walk. Taylor Walls followed with a walk, scoring DeLuzio, and Sansone sent a sacrifice fly into centerfield that plated Petrey for the 6-1 cushion.

After two quick outs, Hank Truluck kept FSU's seventh inning alive with a single through the left side of the infield. Steven Wells Jr. immediately followed with a single to center, advancing Truluck to second. The next two Seminole hitters, Tyler Holton and Henderson, reached after being hit by a pitch and walked as the Seminole lead ballooned to 7-1.

FSU came through with its third multi-run inning of the game in the eighth as the Seminoles took advantage of Raleigh, Hayden Kelly and Dylan Busby reaching base in succession. Consecutive wild pitches by Texas Tech's Chandler Eden allowed Raleigh and Kelly to stretch the margin to 9-1. Truluck completed the at-bat with a sacrifice fly to the centerfield track as Busby scored from third for the final run of the game.

Sansone Shines But FSU Falls To Texas Tech.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State's John Sansone finished 2-for-4 and was responsible for three RBI, but it was a five-run first inning that allowed Texas Tech to earn a split in the midweek series as the Red Raiders came away with an 8-4 victory on Wednesday evening.

Sansone's performance included his fourth homerun and ninth double of the campaign. He was joined at the plate by Taylor Walls (2-3, RBI), who notched a homerun along with a game-high three runs, and Dylan Busby (2-4) with multiple hits.

Florida State (20-7) had six pitchers toe the rubber, including starter Cole Sands (3-3), who yielded five earned runs on five hits in the loss. The remaining five hurlers allowed a combined eight hits, three runs, two earned runs and eight strikeouts.

Texas Tech's offense was led by the trio of Eric Gutierrez (1-3, 2 RBI, HR), Tyler Neslony (1-3, 2 RBI, HR) and Michael Davis (2-5, 2 RBI). That combination accounted for seven of the eight runs in the game as the Red Raiders tallied 12 hits.

Robert Duggar (2-0) grabbed the victory in 1.2 innings of relief after allowing two hits, one earned run and two walks. Hayden Howard (S, 3) finished the final four innings and surrendered three hits, one earned run, five walks and converted two strikeouts.

"That is one of those games that you can just chalk up to the other team getting it done," said head coach Mike Martin. "They played very well, turned three double plays when they needed them and all you can do is tip your hat and move to the next game."

Stephen Smith provided the spark for the Texas Tech offense when he led off the game with a double into left field. Two batters later, with runners on the corners, following a walk and a wild pitch, Tanner Gardner lifted a single to right field to score Smith for the first run of the game.

The solid first inning continued for Texas Tech as Gutierrez and Neslony were responsible for plating the next two runs with back-to-back sacrifice flies as the lead reached 3-0. Two batters later Davis brought home the final two runs of the four-hit inning with a double off the left field wall that scored Gutierrez and Orlando Garcia for the 5-0 advantage.

The Red Raiders added to their lead in the third inning when Neslony sent a solo home run over the right field wall, stretching the margin to 6-0.

Walls recorded the first hit for the Seminoles in the fourth inning with a single through the left side of the infield. Sansone built on the momentum by taking a 2-0 pitch over the left field wall making for a 6-2 affair. Consecutive singles into left field by Quincy Nieporte and Busby allowed the Seminoles to eventually load the bases, but Texas Tech ended the threat with a grounder to second.

Walls came through again in the fifth for Florida State when connected on his second homerun of the season and cut the lead to 6-3.

Texas Tech got the run back in the eighth, making for a 7-3 contest, when Davis sent a one-out double to left field. Davis rounded the bases when a fielder's choice by Tyler Floyd was coupled with a Seminole throwing error.

The Red Raiders had their second long ball of the contest in the ninth when Gutierrez lifted his fifth homerun over the left field wall to push the lead to 8-3. Texas Tech threatened with Davis at second, however he was thrown out sliding into home by Darren Miller as he attempted to score on a single by Garcia.

Sansone added to his RBI total with a two-out double into right centerfield, scoring Walls for the 8-4 final.

FLORIDA STATE 12, LOUISVILLE 7

No. 8 FSU Downs Fourth-Ranked Louisville 12-7.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida State trio of John Sansone, Cal Raleigh and Matt Henderson came through with 10 hits, eight RBI and four runs as they guided the eighth-ranked Seminoles (21-7, 8-1 ACC) to a 12-7 victory over fourth-ranked Louisville (23-6, 9-4 ACC) in the opening game of the key ACC series Friday evening.

Henderson capped off one of his best performances of the season with a perfect 4-for-4 outing that included two RBI and two runs. Meanwhile, Sansone (3-for-5, 2 2B) and Raleigh (3-5, HR) were responsible for three RBI and one run each.

Despite trailing by two runs in the top of the seventh, reliever Matthew Kinney (3-0) earned the win in one inning on the mound as the Seminoles went onto score seven unanswered in the bottom of the frame. Cobi Johnson shutdown the Louisville lineup in the final two innings, holding the Cardinals hitless to go along with two strikeouts.

"It was one of those games that we got some clutch hits, but at the same time Louisville had some big hits," added head coach Mike Martin. "I am very pleased that we managed to get Matthew Kinney and Cobi Johnson in there to slow things down, which they did."

Facing a 7-5 deficit entering the home half of the seventh, Florida State put together a seven-run rally to move in front by five. Dylan Busby opened up scoring for the Seminoles when he trotted home from third on a single through the right side by Gage West. Henderson followed with a single into left centerfield, loading the bases for Taylor Walls who lifted a sacrifice fly to right field, tying the game at seven on a Darren Miller run.

Sansone brought the crowd of 4,495 to its feet in Dick Howser Stadium when he sent a two-run double down the left field line, scoring Henderson and West for the 9-7 FSU advantage. Raleigh then delivered his fifth homerun, this one over the right field wall, providing the Seminoles with a four-run lead. Pinch runner Hank Truluck scored the final run of the frame after an errant throw by Louisville's Blake Tiberi allowed Busby to advance to second.

"I am very happy that I was able to pick up the team with a clutch double when we needed it," said Sansone. "But it was a big sigh of relief when we were up by two runs and he (Raleigh) managed to put us up four with the homerun."

After Louisville jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, Florida State's offense got on track in the third inning when Henderson began with a leadoff bunt single down the first base line. Walls followed with a double off the right field wall, extending his hitting streak to 16 games, however Henderson was tagged out at third on the play. Walls put the first FSU run on the board when Sansone sent a double down the left field line to slice the margin to 2-1.

Louisville answered back stretching the lead to 4-1, but Miller energized the FSU lineup in the fourth inning with a one-out single into centerfield. DeLuzio moved Miller to second with a single up the middle and Steven Wells Jr. loaded the bases for Henderson with a walk. Henderson responded with a single through the left side of the infield, scoring Miller and DeLuzio, as the Noles pulled within one, 4-3. Despite Sansone's second hit of the game, a single to second that moved Henderson into scoring position, FSU was unable to even the score.

A Brendan McKay solo homerun to right field extended the Cards' lead to 5-3 lead.

FSU then evened the score in the home half of the sixth after Gage Wells reached on a hit to second base and the tandem of Henderson and Walls loaded the bases with back-to-back walks. Two batters later Raleigh hit a single into shallow right field, scoring Wells and Henderson, to deadlock the score at five-all.

Once again Louisville answered after McKay reached base on a fielder's choice to third base. Hairston provided Louisville with a 7-5 lead with a two-run homerun over the right field wall, the Cardinals' third of the game.

It was the last run Louisville would put on the board. Following the seven-run outburst in the seventh, the Seminole pitching staff ended the seesaw affair.

Raleigh Hits Sixth Homerun But Louisville Evens The Series.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State freshman catcher Cal Raleigh connected on his sixth homerun of the season, but it was a solid outing by Louisville's (24-6, 10-4 ACC) Drew Harrington that provided the fourth-ranked Cardinals with a 7-1 victory over eighth-ranked FSU (21-8, 8-2).

Raleigh (1-4, RBI, run) was one of two Seminole hitters, along with John Sansone (1-4), to record a hit against Harrington. It is only the second time this season that Florida State was held to two hits, the other coming in the final game of the series against Pittsburgh on March 20.

Seminoles starter Drew Carlton (4-2) went five strong innings, surrendered three runs on five hits and finished with three strikeouts. He gave way to Tyler Holton who pitched through the eighth, striking out three Cardinal batters and allowing two earned runs. Ed Voyles closed out the game in the ninth, yielding two runs on three hits.

Louisville countered with the tandem of Harrington (7-1) and Zack Burdi. Harrington notched his sixth consecutive win after striking out five FSU hitters in 7.2 innings, where he scattered two hits, one earned run and four walks. Burdi came out of the bullpen to record the last out of the eighth before recording a pair of strikeouts in the ninth to secure the win.

"Baseball will humble you and Harrington did just that," said head coach Mike Martin. "That was a beautifully pitched ball game and he spotted all of his pitches and put on a dominating performance. If you put your team in that position (allowing only two hits), they have a very good chance."

Louisville broke the scoreless tie in the top of the fourth inning after Devin Mann led off the frame with a double down the left field line. Two batters later, Mann scored the first Cardinal run on a FSU throwing error following a bunt single by Devin Hairston. A ground out by Blake Tiberi coupled with a fielder's choice by Danny Rosenbaum provided the Cards with a 3-0 advantage.

Raleigh was responsible for the first Florida State run of the game when he sent a 1-2 pitch over the left field wall for his team-leading sixth homerun of the season. It also marked the second time in his freshman campaign that he has had homeruns in back-to-back contests.

The score remained 3-1 until the top of the eighth when Louisville's Tiberi sent a one-out single past the right side of the infield. After a Will Smith walk put two runners on for the Cardinals, Rosenbaum sliced a double down the left field line to clear the bases for a 5-1 lead.

The Cardinals tacked on two runs in the top of the ninth inning after Brendan McKay extended the frame with a two-out triple past a diving Ben DeLuzio. McKay scored on a single up the middle by Hairston, who advanced home on a Tiberi double off the right field wall for the 7-1 final.

Busby Catalyst for Seminoles' 16-5 Over Louisville.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Dylan Busby connected on his fourth home run of the season and first collegiate grand slam, highlighting a five-run third inning that was instrumental in eighth-ranked Florida State (22-8, 9-2 ACC) downing fourth-ranked Louisville (24-7, 10-5) in the rubber match of the series by a 16-5 final.

Busby capped off his afternoon by finishing 1-for-4 from the plate with five RBI, collecting four on a 0-1 slider that ricocheted off the left field scoreboard. John Sansone (2-3, 3 RBI), Taylor Walls (3-6, 2 RBI, double) and Jackson Lueck (3-4, 2 runs) also had big days at the plate.

FSU starter Cole Sands tossed four innings, allowing one earned run, one walk and three hits while notching a pair of two strikeouts. Jim Voyles (4-0) followed on the mound and in the victory allowed two earned runs on four hits. The afternoon also included solid outings by Chase Haney and Andrew Karp, who combined to hold the Cardinals without a hit over 2.1 innings, while striking out four.

"I didn't expect this kind of performance, but I am proud of our ball club and the way that we bounced back," said head coach Mike Martin. "We were soundly beaten last night, but that is the great thing about baseball-you can't get up or down, you have to be ready to go the next day-and our team was ready to go.

Florida State used a walk by Ben DeLuzio to generate the first run of the game. DeLuzio, hitting from the eighth spot, drew the walk and advanced to third on a double to left by Matt Henderson. After a wild pitch scored DeLuzio from third for the 1-0 lead, Sansone and Cal Raleigh loaded the bases with consecutive walks. Busby responded with his first collegiate grand slam to provide the Seminoles with a 5-0 edge.

Lueck, Donovan Petrey and DeLuzio helped FSU build on its lead in the fourth with a series of singles, loading the bases for Taylor Walls. Lueck advanced home on a failed pickoff attempt to catch Petry off guard at second, extending the lead to 6-0. Walls singled to the shortstop, again loading the bases, before consecutive walks of Sansone and Busby made for an 8-0 Seminole advantage.

The Cardinals put two across in the fifth inning after Corey Ray doubled down the right field line to score Drew Ellis. Ray sprinted home, trimming the deficit to 8-2, after a single to centerfield by Colby Fitch.

The Seminoles enjoyed their second big inning of the afternoon in the bottom of the fifth, scoring six runs on six hits. Lueck leadoff the frame with a single through the infield and after DeLuzio reached on a hit by pitch the pair were quickly at second and third, following a wild pitch. Two batters later, Walls plated Lueck with a single to second base.

Sansone continued the fifth inning scoring barrage with a single to left, bringing home Henderson and DeLuzio for the 11-2 advantage. A change on the mound for Louisville didn't deter the Seminoles, who used a double down the left field line by Raleigh, which scored Sansone and Walls, to forge ahead by 11. Pinch hitter Darren Miller brought home Raleigh for the final run of the inning, and a 14-2 lead, with a double to right centerfield.

Doubles by Brendan McKay and Blake Tiberi helped Louisville score for the second time in as many innings, making for a 14-3 contest. The Seminoles got the run back in the home half of the sixth after Nick Graganella reached second on a throwing error by Tiberi. Walls brought his teammate home two batters later with a double down the left field line for a 12-run lead.

Louisville came through with its second two-run inning of the day in the seventh, highlighted by an RBI single to right by Devin Mann, before FSU loaded the bases in the bottom of the frame which resulted in Hank Truluck grabbing an RBI after Steven Wells Jr. trotted home from third final run of the 16-5 affair.

Sixth-Ranked Seminoles Fall To No. 2 Gators.
Leuck hits first career home run and Raleigh records eighth double.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Freshman Jackson Lueck registered his first collegiate home run, but it was not enough to spark a rally from an early three-run deficit as second-ranked Florida (30-5) downed the sixth-ranked Seminoles (22-9) by an 8-2 margin on Tuesday evening.

Lueck, who finished 2-for-4 (RBI) from the plate, was the lone Florida State hitter in the lineup with multiple hits. Senior John Sansone contributed an RBI after going 1-for-4 and Cal Raleigh picked up his eighth double of the season.

Florida State sent eight pitchers to the mound including starter Ed Voyles (0-1) who suffered his first setback of the season after relinquishing four hits, two earned runs and two walks to go along with one strikeout.

"Florida did another exceptional job of playing this great game after committing no errors with their impressive infield," said head coach Mike Martin. "Offensively we had some good at-bats, hit the ball hard a few times, but credit them for making outstanding plays. Everyone from their third baseman to the first baseman played a game that the team that won deserved to win."

Florida's Dalton Guthrie opened the game with a leadoff single to short and quickly moved into scoring position on a stolen base. Two batters later, after advancing to third on a wild pitch, Guthrie provided Florida with the 1-0 lead on a grounder to short by Buddy Reed.

Jeremy Vasquez drove the first Gator hit of the second inning through the right side of the infield before moving to second on an Voyles balk. Two batters later Guthrie roped a double down the left field line, plating Vasquez for the 2-0 advantage.

Chase Haney retired the first two Florida batters of the fourth inning, before Nelson Maldonado reached base after being hit on the wrist. Maldonado scored on a deep single to right field by Guthrie, after oving to second after a failed pickoff attempt, as the Gators assumed the 3-0 lead.

FSU put its first run on the board in the bottom of the fourth when Lueck led off the inning with his first collegiate home run over the right centerfield wall as the Seminoles sliced the lead to 3-1.

Florida got the run back in the fifth when an errant throw to first allowed Deacon Liput to advance to second base. A sacrifice bunt by Reed moved Liput to third before a single up the middle by JJ Schwarz extended the margin back to three. Florida State limited any further scoring opportunities for the Gators with a double play to end frame.

In the seventh inning, the Seminoles had their best chance to close the gap or even take the lead when Ben DeLuzio became the third FSU hitter to reach base to open an inning drawing a leadoff walk. Matt Henderson also walked, setting up Taylor Walls who ripped a single to left to load the bases for Sansone. Sansone reached base on a fielder's choice to third, scoring DeLuzio to cut the lead in half, 4-2, as Walls moved to second. However, Florida's defense ended the threat with a series of infield putouts.

Florida went on to extend its lead with runs in the eighth and ninth innings to push the final to 8-2.

No. 6 Seminoles Fall To Wake Forest.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - A pair of Wake Forest pitchers combined for a three-hit shutout as the Demon Deacons (21-17, 6-10 ACC) downed No. 6 Florida State (22-9, 9-3 ACC) by a 9-0 final at Couch Ballpark on Friday evening.

Florida State received a solid outing from starter Mike Compton (4-2), despite surrendering three runs on three hits and two walks. Meanwhile, the Seminoles offense received three hits from the combination of Dylan Busby (1-3), Jackson Lueck (1-2) and Donovan Petrey (1-2).

Wake Forest was led by the pitching duo of Parker Dunshee, who moved to 5-3 on the season, and Donnie Sellers. Dunshee went seven full innings and limited the Seminole offense to two hits and three walks, while striking out four batters. Sellers also held the FSU bats in check as he yielded one hit and one walk.

Jonathan Pryor broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the fourth inning when he sent a 1-0 pitch by Compton over the left field wall to give the Demon Deacons a 1-0 lead.

Wake Forest widened its lead in the bottom of the sixth after a Keegan Maronpot leadoff single into right field. He later scored on an RBI single through the left side by Pryor. With one out, Nate Mondou cleared the bases with a single into left, scoring Johnny Aiello and Pryor, as the Demon Deacons completed the inning with a 4-0 advantage.

The Deacs' Ben Brezeale opened the home half of the seventh with a double to centerfield. Aiello and Pryor followed with back-to-back walks, loading the bases for Kevin Conway who delivered with a sacrifice fly to centerfield to stretch the lead to 5-0.

WFU came through with four runs in the bottom of the eighth inning after Will Craig opened with bloop single into right field. Two batters later, Stuart Fairchild loaded the bases when he was hit by a pitch. Brezeale followed by driving the first pitch over the right centerfield wall to give the Demon Deacons a 9-0 lead.

Voyles, Sansone Highlight No. 6 FSU’s Win Over Deacons.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The combination of Jim Voyles and John Sansone led sixth-ranked Florida State (23-9, 10-3 ACC) to a 13-8 victory over Wake Forest (21-18, 6-11) at Couch Ballpark on Saturday.

Voyles (5-0) held the Demon Deacons without a hit in 3.1 innings on the mound, after entering the game with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the fifth. He capped off his performance by converting two strikeouts and allowing a pair of walks. Voyles gave way to Tyler Warmoth in the ninth, who closed out the game for the Seminoles by holding Wake Forest scoreless to preserve the five-run victory.

“I knew that I couldn’t walk that guy in the fifth, so I had to bear down and give him a pitch low and in the zone that he could ground out on,” said Voyles of the fifth inning. “The defense made some great plays and I just tried to make Wake Forest get themselves by throwing good pitches. I didn’t really do anything special today, I just had a good outing with great defense behind me.”

The Seminoles, who topped double figures for the 12th time this season, were led at the plate by Sansone (3-5, 2 RBI, 3 runs), who capped off his 18th multi-hit game of the season with a two-run home run in the fourth that gave FSU a lead they would not relinquish.

Florida State also enjoyed a solid offensive performance from Jackson Lueck (2-5, 5 RBI), who established his season-high in RBI after a bases clearing double that plated three runs in the ninth. Teammate Taylor Walls finished 3-for-4 with three RBI and three runs, including his first triple of the season.

After falling behind 2-0, the Florida State offense found its rhythm in the top of the third inning following a series of hits by Walls and Sansone. Lueck, hitting third in the lineup, lifted a single into centervfield that plated both Walls and Sansone, bringing the game to a 2-2 tie. Two batters later, Dylan Busby gave the Seminoles their first lead of the afternoon, 3-2, on a double off the left field wall that scored Lueck.

The Demon Deacons retook the lead at 4-2 before Donovan Petrey opened up the fourth inning for FSU by drawing a leadoff walk. He moved to third on a two-base error in left field, which allowed Matt Henderson to slide into second. Walls quickly cleared the bases with a triple, giving the Seminoles a one-run edge, before Sansone sent a two-run home run over the left field wall to push the advantage to 7-4.

Quincy Nieporte began the home half of the fifth inning with a single through the left side of the infield. Two batters later, Nieporte advanced to third on a single to left by DeLuzio, who loaded the bases for Henderson. Henderson and Walls both reached on walks, scoring Nieporte and Petrey, providing Florida State with a 9-4 lead. DeLuzio scored the final run of the frame when motored home on a passed ball.

Wake Forest closed the gap to two runs but FSU once again added to its lead. Florida State scored multiple runs for the fourth time in the game when it added three runs in the ninth. The frame began with a walk of Henderson, who moved to second on Walls’ third hit of the afternoon. Sansone loaded the bases after being hit by a pitch and Lueck cleared the bases with a double into the center field alley for the 13-8 final.

Petrey, Lueck Unable to Push No. 6 Seminoles Past WFU.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - The freshman duo of Donovan Petrey and Jackson Leuck contributed one RBI each, but Wake Forest (22-17, 7-11) limited sixth-ranked Florida State (23-11, 10-4 ACC) to four hits over the final four innings and earned a 4-2 win at Couch Ballpark on Sunday afternoon.

Leuck (1-4) was responsible for the first FSU run of the day when he reached on a fielder's choice in the first inning, while Petrey (1-4) collected his fourth RBI of the season on his first collegiate homerun four innings later.

The top of the order for the Seminoles, Taylor Walls and John Sansone, each finished 2-for-4 on the day. Among Walls' two hits was his team-high 15th double of the campaign.

FSU hurler Cole Sands (3-4) rebounded from a difficult first inning to close with a pair of strikeouts in four innings. He gave way to Ed Voyles who yielded two hits while fanning two Wake Forest batters in four innings of work.

Meanwhile, the Wake Forest combination of Connor Johnstone, Chris Farish, Donnie Sellers and Will Craig allowed seven hits, two walks and two earned runs in the victory.

"Wake Forest played very well today and there's no way I can point any fingers on our side because they did a good job," said head coach Mike Martin. "Parker Dunshee pitched beautifully on Friday night and today they simply beat us. Every team in the ACC can do this to any team at any time, so we simply just have to get better."

Walls led off the game with a double into the alley and quickly moved to third with a single by Sansone. Lueck brought Walls home with by reaching on a fielder's choice, giving Florida State the early 1-0 advantage.

Wake Forest responded with two runs in the bottom of the frame, capitalizing on a double to left field by Keegan Maronpot that plated Jonathan Pryor and Will Craig for the one-run Demon Deacon lead.

After a Craig homerun to open the third inning and fielder's choice RBI in the fourth by Pryor provided the Demon Deacons a 4-1 lead, Petrey sent his first collegiate homerun over the right field wall to cut the margin to two in the top of the fifth.

FSU stranded three base runners in the final four innings as it suffered its fourth loss away from Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium this season.

Freshman Trio Leads No. 10 FSU Past Stetson, 8-5.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The freshman trio of Cal Raleigh, Jackson Lueck and Tyler Holton led 10th-ranked Florida State to an 8-5 victory over Stetson (17-19) on Tuesday night at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

The combination of Lueck (2-4, 2 RBI) and Raleigh (1-3, 3 RBI) fueled the FSU offense. Lueck, again hitting from the three-hole in the lineup, enjoyed his sixth multi-hit performance in the last eight contests. Meanwhile, Raleigh connected on a three-run homerun, his third homer in the month of April.

Holton (1-2) earned his first collegiate win after striking out six Stetson hitters over six innings. In his fifth start of the season, the freshman hurler scattered four hits, allowed one earned run and one walk in 86 pitches.

Redshirt senior Tyler Warmoth (S, 3) came out of the bullpen to preserve the victory, as he fanned three and issued one walk in 1.2 innings against his former squad.

"It was definitely Tyler Holton's best outing," said head coach Mike Martin. "To go six innings with all three pitches working in his favor. Most important was that he stayed ahead in the count and that is what we have been seeing out of him since September. Then our reliever Tyler Warmoth did a very good job of settling things down for us in the eighth."

FSU opened the game with a leadoff walk by Taylor Walls and a double off the bat of John Sansone, putting two runners into scoring position. Two batters later Raleigh sent his seventh home run of the season over the right field wall, giving the Noles a 3-0 advantage.

Quincy Nieporte continued the first inning with a double up the middle and Dylan Busby put runners on the corners following a single to second base. The pair advanced home on a fielding error, providing FSU with the 5-0 lead.

After Stetson plated its first run in the top of the second, the tandem of Walls and Sansone were again instrumental in Florida State scoring two in the home half of the frame. Walls reached base on single to right field and Sansone smacked a double to left to set the table for Lueck. Lueck responded with a single into right field, driving in two RBI to extend the lead to 7-1.

The Hatters tacked on their second run in the fifth inning, scoring Cory Reid from second base on a single to centerfield by Austin Hale. However, FSU countered with one run in the bottom of the inning when Busby launched his fifth home run of the season over the left field wall to assume the 8-2 advantage.

Trailing 8-3 heading into the top of the eighth, after scoring one run in the seventh inning, Stetson used a walk by Kirk Sidwell and back-to-back hits by Fagan and Jack Perkins to pull within four runs of the Noles. Mike Spooner sent a single up the middle to load the bases and Will McKenzie drew a walk, making for the 8-5 score, before Warmoth closed out the inning with a strikeout to end the threat.hal

DeLuzio, Karp Highlight No. 10 FSU's Win Over Stetson.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The combination of Ben DeLuzio at the plate Andrew Karp on the mound helped 10th-ranked Florida State (26-11) complete a mid-week sweep of Stetson (17-20) by an 8-6 margin on Wednesday afternoon at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

Karp (1-0) capped off his first collegiate start by allowing three hits and one earned run in five innings of work. He tallied one strikeout among the 18 batters he faced.

FSU also got a solid showing out of the bullpen from Jim Voyles and Alec Byrd, who combined for three innings, one hit and one strikeout.

The Seminole offense was ignited by the combination of DeLuzio (2-4, 2 RBI), John Sansone (1-4, 2 RBI) and Dylan Busby (1-3, RBI). DeLuzio's multi-hit performance, his seventh of the season, included a double in the seventh and a two-RBI single in the eighth that scored the decisive runs.

Sansone tied Taylor Walls for the team lead in doubles (15), following a two-out double that cleared the bases in the fifth. Busby connected on his sixth homerun of the season, 14th of his career, to account for the remaining extra base hit of the game.

"I am very proud of Andrew (Karp) today, he had a very good outing," said head coach Mike Martin. "It was also encouraging to get at least five innings from our starters in back-to-back days. I was very pleased with the performances from Byrd and Jim Voyles. Stetson is very competitive and they know how to play the game, especially under a Hall of Fame coach like Pete Dunn."

Florida State assumed the early lead after Walls opened the first inning with a single into left field. Two batters later, Cal Raleigh brought Walls home on a single inside the right field line for the 1-0 Seminole advantage.

Stetson briefly knotted the game at 1-1 in the top of the fifth, but Busby opened the home half of the frame by sending his second homerun in as many days over the right centerfield wall, giving FSU the 2-1 edge. Steven Wells Jr. and Matt Henderson each reached base on a single, putting runners on the corners, before Sansone stretched the Seminoles' lead to 4-1 with a bases clearing double to centerfield.

FSU added two runs in the seventh after Donovan Petrey opened the inning by being struck by a pitch by Stetson's Josh Thorne. He advanced to third on a double down the left field line by DeLuzio. Henderson brought Petrey home on a sacrifice fly to centerfield and Walls assisted in DeLuzio's crossing the plate in similar fashion for a 6-1 advantage.

Back-to-back two-out walks of Nick Graganella and Busby, coupled with a single by Petrey, in the FSU eighth loaded the bases with DeLuzio at the plate. The junior centerfielder responded with a single to right field, scoring Graganella and Busby, to provide the Seminoles with an 8-1 lead.

The Hatters rallied in the top of the ninth, scoring five runs on four hits, to make for the 8-6 final. Among the key plays was a single to right field by Kevin Fagan, which scored two Stetson runners, and an errant throw in the infield on a hit by Will McKenzie that also plated two runners.

Nieporte Highlights No. 10 FSU's Win Over Irish.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State's Quincy Nieporte recorded a season-high five RBI to lead the 10th-ranked Seminoles (26-11, 11-4 ACC) to a 12-6 victory over Notre Dame (23-13, 9-8) in the series opener on Friday evening.

Nieporte's 2-for-4 outing from the plate included his second homerun and fourth double of the campaign. He was joined on offense by the tandem of Dylan Busby (2-4, 3 RBI) and Cal Raleigh (2-4, 3 RBI). Busby's 11th multi-hit game of the season included two extra base hits (double, triple), while Raleigh notched his team-leading eighth homerun in the seventh inning.

"I have had a frustrating few weeks and feel like I hit the ball pretty well, but there were opponents where I hit it," said Nieporte. "Tonight I managed to hit the ball hard and nobody got a glove on it, so my confidence really changed because I was able to find the holes that were out there. I do hope this continues because it just adds onto how good this offense can be."

Mike Compton (5-2) picked up his fifth win of the season and second this month after holding the Fighting Irish lineup to three runs, two earned, on seven hits in 5.1 innings. Compton also fanned three Notre Dame hitters in the process.

Jim Voyles enjoyed another solid outing from the bullpen as he struck out two in the sixth and followed with two more in the seventh to limit the Irish to one hit in 1.2 innings.

After falling behind two runs early, Florida State put its first run on the board in the home half of the frame. Busby led off with a triple off the right centerfield wall and quickly advanced home when Nieporte hit a ground ball back to the pitcher to make for a 2-1 contest.

Notre Dame stretched the advantage to 3-1 in the top of the third, but the Seminoles retaliated with three runs on three hits in the bottom of the inning. Taylor Walls began the frame with a leadoff single that was shortly followed by a John Sansone single to right field and walk by Jackson Lueck, loading the bases for Busby.

Busby responded with a two-RBI double to centerfield, his second extra base hit of the game, plating Walls and Sansone and bringing the game to a three-all deadlock. Nieporte then hit a sacrifice fly to centerfield, scoring Lueck, as FSU forged ahead 4-3.

FSU got the leadoff runner on base for the fourth time in the game when Sansone reached on a walk in the fifth. Lueck reached base on a single the shortstop, who also committed a throwing error to first in an attempt to get the speedy freshman, allowing Sansone to slide into third. Cal Raleigh followed with a sacrifice fly to centerfield, plating Sansone, to make for a 5-3 Seminole lead.

The Noles offense enjoyed its second multi-run inning in the seventh when Raleigh lifted the first pitch of the at-bat over the right field wall for his eighth homerun of the season. Two batters later, Nieporte contributed his third RBI of the game when he sent a homerun off the left field scoreboard, giving FSU the 7-3 advantage.

"Quincy is capable of having nights like this on a regular basis," said head coach Mike Martin. "When he followed Cal's homerun in the seventh with one of his own, I wasn't the least bit surprised. Mike Martin Jr. has worked with him religiously the last three weeks and he too is just waiting to see Quincy return to where he was last year."

Florida State put the game out of reach in the eighth inning with five runs on four hits. The scoring frenzy began with an RBI single up the middle by Sansone that brought Henderson home from second. Two batters later Raleigh slipped a single into right field, plating Walls for the 9-5 lead. After Busby scored Sansone from third on a sacrifice fly into left, Nieporte provided the Noles with a 12-5 lead with a double to right that scored both Raleigh and Lueck.

Notre Dame added one run in the top of the ninth, on a homerun to right field by Jake Shepski for the 12-6 final.

Lueck, Nieporte Fuel No. 10 FSU's Extra Inning Win.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Quincy Nieporte's double off the right centerfield wall helped set up Jackson Lueck's walk-off single to left field as 10th-ranked Florida State (27-11, 12-4 ACC) earned a 7-6 victory over Notre Dame (23-14, 9-9) in the 12th inning on Saturday evening.

Nieporte, who capped off a 4-of-6 performance with three RBI, hit his second double of the evening to lead off the decisive inning. He was replaced at second by pinch runner Hank Truluck, who motored home when Lueck hit a single over Irish left fielder Jake Shepski's head to cap off the fourth walk-off win for FSU this season.

Along with Nieporte's two doubles, the junior designated hitter also had a single and his third home run of the season, second in as many days. Lueck wrapped up his outing by going 2-for-6 from the plate with two RBI and a run scored.

Sophomore hurler Drew Carlton, who had a no decision, finished with season-high seven strikeouts as he scattered five hits in 6.1 innings. Reliever Chase Haney posted his fourth win after pitching a scoreless 12th inning where he allowed one hit and struck out one Notre Dame batter.

"Drew Carlton is a bulldog because he is going to get out there and battle, maintain his poise and be in total control of his emotions," said head coach Mike Martin. "It was a big win for us tonight and to minimize anything about it is wrong. It was a win that we needed because of the ACC and something that we needed for our overall psyche. That would've been a rough one to lose with a two-run lead and two outs in the ninth inning, but our guys weren't going to let that happen."

Notre Dame established a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but the Seminoles bounced back with three runs on four hits in the bottom of the second inning. Cal Raleigh opened the frame with a solo home run to left, his second in as many games, cutting the Irish lead in half. Nieporte, who carried over his performance from Friday, continued the inning with a double into centerfield.

Lueck became the third straight FSU batter to reach base with a single into centerfield, scoring Nieporte, before Ben DeLuzio reached base with a walk. Right fielder Steven Wells Jr. followed with a single to centerfield that loaded the bases. The inning drew to a close on a grounder by Matt Henderson that resulted in Lueck scoring the go-ahead 3-2 run for the Seminoles.

Notre Dame's Ricky Sanchez led off the fourth inning with a home run, bringing the game to a three-all tie, before Nieporte cracked his second home run in the series to provide FSU with a 4-3 edge in the home half of the frame.

The seesaw battle for the lead continued with the Irish tying the game at four-all in the top of the seventh. Henderson opened the bottom of the inning with a single through the right side and following a walk by Taylor Walls the Florida State offense had two runners on base.

Sansone extended the inning with a single to first, loading the bases with no outs. Two outs later, Nieporte roped a seeing-eye single up the middle, scoring Henderson and Walls to provide the Seminoles with the 6-4 advantage.

Notre Dame's Ryan Lidge hit a two-out two-run home run over the right field wall in the top of the ninth to knot the score at 6-6.

Walls, Nieporte Help No. 10 Noles Sweep Notre Dame 11-6.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State's tandem of Quincy Nieporte and Taylor Walls combined for six RBI and two home runs as they led the Seminoles (28-11, 13-4 ACC) to a sweep of Notre Dame (23-15, 9-10) following an 11-6 victory on Sunday afternoon. Nieporte, who finished 2-for-4 with two RBI and a home run on Sunday, capped off the three-game series by hitting 7-of-14 (.500 batting average) with 10 RBI, four runs, three doubles, three home runs and a .500 on-base percentage. Walls ended the third game by going 2-for-4 with four RBI, three runs and his first career grand slam. Jackson Lueck was also a vital part of the offense as he finished 2-for-4 with three RBI in the final game against the Irish. The trio of Lueck, Nieporte and Walls assisted the Seminoles, who posted their third ACC series win on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium this season, in topping the double figure mark for the 15th time this season. "Individually this weekend was a confidence boost for me, but ultimately it just shows how this team is," said Nieporte. "Even though I wasn't swinging the bat well early on we were having team success. Now that I am able to get my bat going it just shows how good this team can be when we are all clicking." Tyler Holton (2-2) took over for starter Cole Sands with one out in the fourth inning and preceded to hold Notre Dame to two hits and two walks while striking out five Fighting Irish batters. He was followed by Jim Voyles, who left the game after being struck in the head, and Matthew Kinney, who combined to allow three hits and one earned run. Notre Dame capitalized on three FSU errors, including a potential inning-ending out at first, as it established a 5-0 lead behind five unearned runs in the first inning. Florida State's offense caught fire in the fifth inning when Matt Henderson reached on a hit by pitch and both Walls and John Sansone followed with a walk. Lueck drove a single through the right side of the infield, scoring Henderson and Walls, to give the Seminoles their first runs of the afternoon. After the Irish defense picked off Sansone at second, Cal Raleigh plated Lueck from first with a double down the right field line. Two pitches later Nieporte capped off the five-run rally with a two-run home run over the left field wall, marking his third home run in as many games, knotting the game at 5-5. Nick Graganella led off the sixth inning with a single to third, becoming the first of three straight FSU hitters to record a hit along with Henderson and Walls. With Henderson at third, following a wild pitch, Sansone provided the one-run lead with a sacrifice fly to left field. Lueck also connected on a single to left, bringing Walls home from third, as FSU stretched the advantage to 7-5. The lead ballooned to six runs in the bottom of the sixth after back-to-back hits by Petrey and Graganella put two runners on base with one out. Henderson drew a walk to load the bases before Walls connected on his third career home run, first grand slam, over the left field wall for an 11-5 lead. "It was a great win for us today," said head coach Mike Martin. "Cole Sands did not pitch poorly, but we just didn't do what we normally do on defense. To fall five runs down, maintain our poise and continue to make good at-bats, I just can't say enough about what this team has done thus far."

No. 6 Seminoles Fall to Clemson, 10-3.

CLEMSON, SC - The Seminoles' trio of Dylan Busby, Jackson Lueck and Quincy Nieporte each accounted for one RBI, but it was not enough as Clemson (27-14, 10-12 ACC) posted a 10-3 victory in a rain delayed contest over sixth-ranked Florida State (28-12, 13-5) to open the three-game series on Saturday afternoon at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

Both Busby and Lueck finished 1-for-3 from the plate, while Nieporte capped off his day 1-for-4. Meanwhile, the combination of Cal Raleigh (2-3) and John Sansone (2-4) shared the team-high in hits.

Starter Mike Compton (5-3) went four innings for FSU before a three-run fifth closed the books on his performance. He was followed on the mound by a host of relievers, including Alex Diese who tossed one inning, allowed three hits and one earned run among the seven Tiger hitters he faced, capping off his first appearance for the Seminoles this season.

Trailing 3-0, following a home run by Clemson's Weston Wilson in the bottom of the third, FSU opened the fourth with a leadoff walk by Hank Truluck. Two batters later Sansone moved Truluck into scoring position with a single to left field. Lueck quickly followed with a hit into centerfield, plating Truluck for the Seminoles' first run of the game.

Raleigh loaded the bases for FSU with a walk and Nieporte drove a single to left field, scoring Sansone for a 3-2 contest. Busby brought home the final run of the inning by plating Lueck on a sacrifice fly to deadlock the game 3-3.

Clemson used three runs in the bottom of the fifth to retake the lead. The key hit was a single to left field by Chris Okey that scored both Adam Renwick and K.J. Bryant as the Tigers assumed the 6-3 advantage. Following a rain delay that lasted just under two hours, the Tigers added one run in the seventh and used a three-run home run in the eighth, off the bat of Okey, to make for the 10-3 final score.

Carlton, DeLuzio Guide No. 6 FSU Past Clemson, 11-2.

CLEMSON, SC - Led by the performances of Drew Carlton and Ben DeLuzio the sixth-ranked Florida State (29-12, 13-5 ACC) baseball team evened its series with Clemson (27-15, 10-13) by posting an 11-2 victory on Sunday at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

Carlton (5-2) anchored the Seminole pitching staff by limiting Clemson to two earned runs on seven hits. In the longest outing by any FSU starter this season, 7.1 innings, the sophomore hurler faced 31 batters and converted four strikeouts. Carlton was followed on the mound by Alec Byrd and Ed Voyles, who held the Tigers hitless over the final 1.2 innings.

"Staying down in the zone was important for my success today," said Carlton. "They have a really good hitting lineup and by putting my pitches in the right spots it was important."

DeLuzio led the way for FSU hitters with a 2-for-4 performance that resulted in three RBI. He was joined by Taylor Walls (3-5, 3 RBI), John Sansone (2-4, 2 RBI, HR) and Quincy Nieporte (2-4, RBI), who also recorded multiple hits.

"Drew Carlton really came through with a solid performance for us today," said head coach Mike Martin. "He gave us a chance to save pitchers that would've normally come out of the bullpen by going into the seventh inning. I was also happy with a solid day at the plate for both Ben DeLuzio and Taylor Walls. This is a huge win for us heading into tomorrow night's series finale."

Clemson opened the home half of the first with a leadoff walk by Chase Pinder, who scored two batters later on an RBI single by Seth Beer. FSU retaliated in the in the top of the second when Nieporte led off the inning with a single to right field. Two outs later, with Nieporte at second, DeLuzio dropped a single into shallow right field to plate Nieporte for the 1-1 tie.

Hank Truluck gave the Noles their second leadoff hitter on base in as many innings after being hit by a pitch to open the third. Walls drove a single to right, moving Truluck to third, before Sansone gave FSU the 2-1 advantage on a sacrifice fly to left field. Raleigh extended the inning with a two-out double to right, his second hit of the game, just before a single through the right side to make for a 3-1 lead.

The Tigers got one run back in the bottom of the third frame, narrowing the margin to 3-2, before the second multi-run inning gave FSU the 5-2 advantage. With one out DeLuzio reached base on a fielding error by Eli White. Steven Wells Jr. followed with a single through the left side of the infield, putting DeLuzio in scoring position, before Walls connected on a two-RBI single to left centerfield for the three-run cushion.

FSU's offense continued to fire on all cylinders in the fifth inning, sending nine batters to the plate en route to four runs. Raleigh opened the frame with a walk and advanced to second following a Dylan Busby's single to third. Two batters later, with the bases loaded, DeLuzio singled over the head of second baseman Weston Wilson to plate Raleigh and Busby for the 7-2 lead.

Donovan Petrey added to the fifth inning run total, scoring the eighth run of the contest, as he and DeLuzio completed a double steal. Wells scored DeLuzio from third as FSU lead 9-2 on a fielder's choice.

Sansone added to FSU's lead with a solo home run to centerfield in the eighth inning as the Seminoles topped 10 runs in a game for the 15th time this season.

The final run of the game for FSU came in the ninth when Tyler Holton, pinch hitting for Wells Jr., reached base on a two-out walk. Clemson's Paul Campbell followed with a walk of Truluck before a single into right field by Walls that scored Holton made for the 11-2 final.

Nieporte Finishes With Three Hits in Clemson Setback.

CLEMSON, SC - Quincy Nieporte finished with three hits for sixth-ranked Florida State (29-13, 14-6 ACC), but two multi-run innings by Clemson (28-15, 11-13 ACC) provided the Tigers with a 7-3 win in the rubber game of the series on Monday evening at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

Nieporte (3-4) was one of six hitters in the FSU lineup with a hit and was one of two, along with Ben DeLuzio (1-4), to record a double. Steven Wells Jr. capped off his seventh start of the season with two RBI as he finished 1-for-4 at the plate.

Clemson took advantage of a double to left field by Chris Okey and three consecutive walks to assume an early 1-0 advantage in the first. However, Nieporte keyed a two-run second inning which allowed the Seminoles to assume the lead.

In Nieporte's first at-bat of the game he singled through the left side of the infield. Two batters later DeLuzio dropped a one-out double to left field, moving Nieporte to third. Wells followed with a single to centerfield that provided FSU the 2-1 lead on a slide into home by DeLuzio.

FSU added to its lead in the third inning after Taylor Walls reached on a walk to lead off the frame. John Sansone connected on the fifth Seminole hit of the game and exploited a throwing error by Jordan Greene by moving to second on the play. Clemson reliever Pat Krall sailed his first pitch of the game behind home plate, allowing Walls to trot home for the 3-1 advantage.

The Tigers trimmed the lead to 3-2 in the fourth after Chase Pinder roped a double down the left field line to plate Weston Wilson from third. Clemson followed with its first multi-run inning of the game in the fifth, using an RBI single by Seth Beer and a sacrifice fly off the bat of Reed Rohlman to regain the advantage 4-3.

Clemson added a three insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth when Beer sent a double into the left field corner to bring home the combination of Eli White and Okey. Beer scored two batters later, making for the 7-3 final, on a single to right by Weston Wilson.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Ben DeLuzio’s eighth inning, two-run triple down the right field line proved to be the difference as the eighth-ranked Florida State (30-13) posted a 6-1 victory over Bowling Green (16-29) in the series opener Friday evening.

DeLuzio, who broke the 1-1 tie on his first triple of the season, finished 2-for-4 from the plate and tied John Sansone (2-5, 2 doubles) with a team-high two RBI. Quincy Nieporte (1-4) recorded his 13th RBI in the last seven games when he drove in Cal Raleigh on a double in the eighth inning.

“We were just trying to get something going in the eighth and Cal Raleigh did a good job of starting it with the double to right,” said DeLuzio. “That got the ball rolling for sure. Devin Daugherty threw me a slider away and I stayed on top of it and pushed it down the right field line.”

Ed Voyles (1-1) became the 10th different FSU pitcher with a victory this season after holding the Falcons to two hits and one walk in 3.1 innings of relief of starter Mike Compton. Tyler Warmoth preserved the win in the ninth by striking out two Bowling Green hitters.

“We had a lot of big hits tonight, especially DeLuzio’s, but let’s don’t forget Raleigh with the leadoff double,” said head coach Mike Martin. “We needed to get this win and hopefully we can come out tomorrow and play better defensively. Ed Voyles was spot on for us tonight, giving us a big lift on the mound, by giving us a chance to win at home.”

Bowling Green broke the scoreless tie in the fifth inning when Justin Mott reached base on a single into centerfield. Mott eventually moved to third, following a fielder’s choice and a grounder to first, before a single to third base by Matt Smith provided the Falcons with the 1-0 advantage.

Raleigh keyed a six-run eighth inning for the Seminoles when he opened the frame with a leadoff double off the right field wall. Nieporte scored the freshman backstop on a double into right centerfield, knotting the game at 1-1. Two batters later, with pinch runner Jackson Lueck at second and Dylan Busby at first, DeLuzio connected on his 11thextra base hit of the season to give FSU the 3-1 advantage.

DeLuzio quickly stretched the lead to three when he sped home on a passed ball with Steven Wells Jr. at the plate. A series of walks put both Wells and Donovan Petrey on base for Sansone, who responded with a two-RBI double into centerfield that made for the 6-1 final.

Carlton, Nieporte Key In No. 8 FSU’s 10-0 Shutout.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The combination of Drew Carlton on the mound and Quincy Nieporte at the plate led eighth-ranked Florida State to its second shutout of the season, 10-0, over Bowling Green on Saturday evening. The victory moves the Seminoles to 31-13 overall and 25-6 on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium, while the Falcons dropped to 16-30.

Carlton picked up his team-leading sixth win of the season as he tied his career-high in strikeouts (nine). The sophomore right-hander scattered five hits and one walk over six innings before giving way to Tyler Holton, who struck out five of the next nine Falcon hitters he faced in two innings of work.

“I had good command of the fastball from both sides of the plate,” said Carlton. “Being able to throw inside was really helpful tonight as well. They were having to look away when I was throwing inside, but having to look up and down to change their eye levels was very beneficial.”

Nieporte led the way for FSU offense that pounded out 13 hits, finishing 2-for-4 with three RBI, all coming on his fifth home run of the season in the fourth inning. Joining him with multiple hits was the trio of Dylan Busby (2-4), Donovan Petrey (2-4) and Hank Truluck (2-4), who capped off his night with a two-RBI single in the second.

“Drew Carlton coming through with a second straight impressive performance was very helpful for us tonight,” added head coach Mike Martin. “In the first inning their starting pitcher (Zac Carey) did a great job against us, but in the second we had an inning that put us in good position. Hats off to our offense because we had some good at-bats, but when there’s a zero on the scoreboard they’ll be a lot of happy pitchers.”

FSU grabbed the lead in the bottom of the second after Nieporte reached on a leadoff single into left field. Petrey followed with a seeing-eye single up the middle, putting Nieporte into scoring position. Two batters later Busby dropped a bunt to first, scoring Nieporte for the 1-0 advantage.

Truluck delivered a two-run single to centerfield that brought home Petrey and Busby as the Noles quickly led 3-0. Taylor Walls followed with a fielder’s choice to centerfield, plating Steven Wells Jr. for the 4-0 advantage. John Sansone’s single into left field again put runners on the corners for the Noles, who tacked on their fifth run of the game with a Cal Raleigh single to right that scored Walls.

Ben DeLuzio manufactured the only Seminole run of the third inning after reaching base on a single into left. With Busby at the plate, the speedy outfielder swiped his 10th base of the season and moved to third on a throwing error. Two pitches later, DeLuzio streaked home for the 6-0 lead on a passed ball by Greiner.

The Seminoles’ second multi-run inning came in the fourth inning when Truluck led off the frame with a single into centerfield. After a two-walk by Raleigh put two runners on base, Nieporte hit his fifth home run of the season just inside the left field foul pole to give FSU a 9-0 edge.

Bryan Bussey contributed in his first at-bat for FSU in the sixth inning, scoring Walls from first for the 10-0 lead, marking the 17th time this season that the Seminoles have topped double figures.

Sansone, Sands Guide No. 8 FSU to 6-1 Sweep.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – John Sansone finished the afternoon with three RBI and Cole Sands recorded five strikeouts as eighth-ranked Florida State completed a sweep of Bowling Green with a 6-1 victory on Sunday. It marks the fourth series sweep of the season for the Seminoles (32-13), who outscored the Falcons (16-31) by a 22-2 margin over the weekend.

Sansone was responsible for three of the Seminoles’ five RBI, including his 15th career home run in the third inning that put FSU in front 2-1. Dylan Busby (3-4, 3 runs), who contributed a home run in the fourth, and Taylor Walls (2-4, run) also finished with multiple hits for the Noles.

“The home run was really special to me on Mother’s Day because after I hit it I blew my mom a kiss and I could tell that she was crying a little bit,” said Sansone.

On the mound, Sands (4-4) limited the Falcon lineup to three hits, while striking out five, in his longest outing of the season (six innings). The bullpen combination of Chase Haney, Alec Byrd and Tyler Warmoth combined for five strikeouts and allowed one hit to preserve the five-run victory.

“It was great to get this kind of outing today because I have been making several adjustments over the past few weeks to my fastball and slider,” said Sands. “It was also nice to have great defensive support behind me today. Anytime that we as a staff can hold an opponent to two runs over three days a sweep is always possible.”

The Seminoles matched Bowling Green’s run in the top of the second inning by using a pair of throwing errors, with Dylan Busby on base, to draw even at 1-1.

Sansone gave FSU the lead in the third when he sent his seventh home run of the season over the left field wall for a 2-1 advantage.

The Noles stretched their advantage to 3-1 in the bottom of the fourth inning after Busby blasted his seventh home run of the campaign to left field.

Walls got into the act when he delivered a one-out double into right field in the fifth inning, advancing home two plays later on an errant throw from third that also allowed Sansone to reach second. Cal Raleigh knocked a single into to left, scoring Sansone for the 5-1 FSU lead.

Busby was again prevalent in the FSU offense in the sixth inning, leading off the frame with a single up the middle. After a hard slide into second, Busby crossed the plate for the sixth run of the game on a single to left by Sansone.

No. 6 Noles Drop 6-2 Decision at Jacksonville.

JACKSONVILLE, FL - A solid pitching performance by Jacksonville's Jeff Tanner kept the Florida State lineup off-balance as the Dolphins (29-17) earned a 6-2 victory at Sessions Stadium on Tuesday evening. The setback halts the Seminoles' (32-14) three-game winning streak and they now face a quick turnaround against Florida Gulf Coast at home on Wednesday afternoon.

FSU's offense was highlighted by Taylor Walls (2-3, run) and Cal Raleigh (2-4). One of Raleigh's two hits was a double that scored John Sansone from first base in the ninth. It was one of only two extra base hits for the Noles in the game. Teammate Dylan Busby (1-4) preceded Raleigh's ninth inning double with a double of his own in the eighth. The Seminoles' offense was unable to get in sync throughout the game, stranding 11 runners on base.

Five pitchers took the mound for FSU in the game, including starter Andrew Karp (1-1) who yielded three earned runs, three walks and two hits in his second career start. Among those in relief included Chase Haney and Alex Diese who worked a combined three innings, holding 10 JU hitters to one hit and one walk.

"We had a very frustrating night, but we have to continue to understand that we are a good baseball team," said head coach Mike Martin. "We have got to keep working at it because we have a short time to do it in. The joy of it is that we have another game tomorrow so we can put this behind us."

The Garnet and Gold got on the board in the top of the first, capitalizing on back-to-back walks by Walls and Sansone when Quincy Nieporte sent a single through the right side of the infield, plating Walls for the 1-0 advantage.

Jacksonville answered with three runs in the second, highlighted by a two-run double into right field by Parker Perez, as the Dolphins moved in front 3-1. JU had its second three-run inning in the fifth, using a two-RBI single through the left side of the infield by Franco Guardascione, to establish a 6-1 edge.

Sansone drew his second walk of the game in the ninth, rounding the bases for the second Seminole run on a two-out double to right centerfield by Raleigh to make for the 6-2 decision.

Walls Smacks Two Home Runs in Setback to FGCU.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Florida State’s Taylor Walls notched the first multi-home run game of his career, including a game-tying two-run blast for the sixth-ranked Seminoles (32-15) in the bottom of the ninth, but Florida Gulf Coast (22-25) capitalized on three runs in the top of the 10th to earn the 11-8 victory on Wednesday afternoon.

FGCU broke the tie in the top of the 10th when a failed pickoff attempt allowed Matt Reardon to move from first to third base. Jake Smith scored the runner from third on a sacrifice fly, giving the Eagles a 9-8 lead. Jake Noll collected his fourth hit of the afternoon, a single to left, before a two-run home run by Tyler Selesky made for the 11-8 decision.

Walls, who finished 2-for-4 from the plate with a pair of home runs and three runs scored, matched his season high in RBI (four). Meanwhile, Matt Henderson finished off the game by going 2-for-2 with three runs. The Seminoles’ offense also received contributions from Dylan Busby (1-4, HR) and Donovan Petrey (1-4), who drove in two RBI each.

“When I hit the home run in the ninth I knew it was gone,” said Walls. “I am not used to hitting a lot of home runs so my first instinct is to run. Once I hit that one I knew it was going to get out of the park.”

In his sixth start of the season, FSU’s Tyler Holton tossed five innings, allowed four earned runs and fanned six, tying his season-high. Alec Byrd came on in relief, yielding three hits and two earned runs while striking out four over three innings.

Tyler Warmoth (0-1) hurled the final two innings for the Noles, surrendering three earned runs and two hits among the 10 Eagle batters he faced.

Florida Gulf Coast’s offense came alive early in the first inning by scoring five runs on three hits, including a two-run single into left field by Gage Morey. Teammate Jake Noll followed with a solo home run to left field in the second inning, giving the Eagles a 6-0 advantage.

FSU put its first two runs across in the third when Henderson reached on a walk and Walls followed with his first home run of the day over the right field wall, trimming the deficit to 6-2.

The Seminoles picked up two more runs in the seventh when Petrey reached on an errant ball that trickled past first baseman Smith, advancing to third on the play. Busby then lifted a 2-2 pitch over the left field wall for his eighth home run of the season, making for a 6-4 contest.

“We did a tremendous job of fighting to get back into the ball game when we were six runs down,” said head coach Mike Martin. “I am very proud of our guys for fighting like that, but I am surprised that at some things we did that we haven’t done a lot of—most importantly, throwing away at-bats. However, Florida Gulf Coast did a great job and they got the key hits in the 10th inning.”

Jake Noll hit his second home run of the day in the eighth, pushing the Eagles lead back to four, 8-4, before two runs by FSU in the home half of the frame sliced the deficit in half.

A pair of walks by Henderson and Walls led off the eighth for the Noles. After back-to-back outs, Quincy Nieporte’s at-bat extended the frame when he was hit on the back to load the bases. Petrey followed with a single to centerfield, plating Henderson and Walls for the 8-6 contest.

The duo of Henderson and Walls delivered for FSU in the ninth inning when a two-out double to centerfield by Henderson breathed new life into the Seminoles’ offense. Walls hammered home his second home run of the day, also to right field, knotting the score at 8-8.

Walls Remains Hot in Seminoles’ 5-4 Setback to Duke.

DURHAM, NC – Florida State’s Taylor Walls recorded his fourth consecutive multi-hit outing, but a two-run home run off the bat of Duke’s (30-20, 11-14 ACC) Jake Labosky in the third inning that proved to be the difference as the sixth-ranked Seminoles (32-16, 14-7 ACC) fell 5-4 on Friday evening at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

Walls, who finished 4-for-5 at the plate, was responsible for two RBI and two runs. He led the top third of the FSU lineup in hits that also included John Sansone (2-5, double, RBI) and Jackson Lueck (2-4, RBI), who returned after missing the last seven games due to a shoulder injury. Junior Ben DeLuzio, who finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored, added a spark from the nine-hole with a double and a triple on the evening.

Sophomore Drew Carlton (6-3) was charged with the loss after yielding eight hits and five earned runs in seven innings on the mound. Carlton, who earned the starting nod in the series opener after posting wins in his last two outings, faced 30 Blue Devil hitters and made 106 pitches.

Duke snagged a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second when Michael Smiciklas followed a single to centerfield by Justin Bellinger with his first home run of the season.

The Seminoles rallied in the top of the third when DeLuzio opened with a double into right field. The double marked the speedy junior’s 11th of the season and in the process moved his career-long hitting streak to eight games.

DeLuzio came home five pitches later when Walls sent a single into right field for FSU’s first run. After a Sansone single put runners on the corners for the Seminoles, Lueck completed his return with an RBI single to left field that scored Walls to knot the game at 2-2.

Duke regained the lead in the bottom of the third inning when consecutive hits by Max Miller and Jimmy Heron resulted in a 3-2 Blue Devil advantage. Two batters later Labosky sent a two-run home run over the left field wall to make for a 5-2 contest.

DeLuzio rejuvenated the FSU offense with a lead-off triple into right field to open the seventh, scoring on Walls’ third hit of the game as the Seminoles recorded their third run. Sansone delivered a one-out double to right field, plating Walls from first for the 5-4 final as the Blue Devils’ defense prevented Sansone and Lueck from scoring additional runs.

Henderson, Nieporte Collect Two Hits in 3-1 Loss at Duke.

DURHAM, NC – Matt Henderson finished with two hits, including his fifth double of the season, in sixth-ranked Florida State’s (32-17, 14-8 ACC) 3-1 setback to Duke (31-20, 12-14 ACC) on Saturday afternoon at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

Henderson was the one of six hitters in the Seminole lineup with a hit and was one of two, along with Quincy Nieporte (2-4), to record multiple hits. Ben DeLuzio, who snapped his career-long eight-game hitting streak, recorded the lone RBI on a sacrifice bunt that scored Dylan Busby in the second inning.

FSU hurler Cole Sands (4-5), who completed six innings for the second time in as many games, took the loss after allowing three earned runs on four hits.

Duke’s Jimmy Herron led off the first inning with a double to left and gave the Blue Devils a 1-0 advantage four batters later when he slid into home following a wild pitch by Sands.

FSU knotted the game at 1-1 in the second after Busby was struck on the arm. Henderson followed with a single through the left side of the infield, putting runners at the corners for DeLuzio, who laid down a sacrifice bunt to score Busby from third.

Duke regained the lead in the bottom of second when a two-out walk by Max Miller extended the inning. With Miller at second, following a wild pitch, Herron reached on a ground rule double to right field to give the Blue Devils a 2-1 advantage.

The Blue Devils tallied the final run of the game in the sixth inning when Justin Bellinger sent a lead-off home run over the right field wall for the 3-1 lead. FSU put runners on base in both the eighth and ninth innings, however the Seminoles were unable to complete the comeback.

Sansone’s Three Doubles Highlight No. 6 FSU’s 4-3 Win Over Duke.

DURHAM, NC – Florida State senior captain John Sansone was responsible for a career-high three doubles in the sixth-ranked Seminoles’ (33-17, 15-8 ACC) 4-3 victory over Duke (31-21, 12-15 ACC) on Sunday afternoon at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

Sansone, who finished 3-for-4 on the afternoon, was one of four Seminole hitters to record multiple hits and one RBI. The others included Taylor Walls (2-5, 2 runs, HR), Dylan Busby (2-4) and Ben DeLuzio (2-3).

FSU also received a solid performance from its pitching staff, including starter Ed Voyles, who yielded two runs—one earned—on five hits in 3.2 innings. Ed Voyles gave way to his brother Jim Voyles, who posted his sixth win of the season after allowing one earned run and one hit in 2.1 innings of work. It marked Jim Voyles’ first appearance on the mound since being struck in the head against Notre Dame (April 24).

After the combination of Chase Haney and Alec Byrd held Duke’s offense hitless, redshirt senior Tyler Warmoth took over on the mound. Warmoth recorded the final out of the eighth inning for the Seminoles before returning in the ninth to earn his fourth save of the season.

“When you start talking about the big win today you start with the pitchers,” said head coach Mike Martin. “Our five pitchers did an outstanding job and I am very pleased that they kept the game in check against a very good offensive club. Duke had played exceptionally well, but we kept our poise.

“John’s big day at the plate helped,” said Martin of Sansone’s three doubles. “Taylor Walls’ home run was also important, but it all goes back to the outstanding pitching because that’s the only way that you are going to get wins is to get quality pitching and that exactly what we got today.”

The Blue Devils scored the first run of the game in the second inning following an error by Henderson that allowed Zack Kone to reach base. Two batters later Jimmy Herron doubled off the left field wall to plate Kone for the 1-0 lead.

Florida State evened the game at 1-1 in the top of the fourth when Quincy Nieporte reached base after being struck on the shoulder. A stolen base, coupled with a Busby single to right field, advanced Nieporte to third. Two batters later, DeLuzio brought home Nieporte on a sacrifice fly to centerfield.

Duke regained the lead in the bottom of the fourth, 2-1, on a Peter Zyla home run.

Walls retaliated for the Seminoles in the top of the fifth, tying the contest at 2-2 with a home run to right field. Sansone kept the momentum going with a double off the left field wall.

The senior captain was quickly joined on base by Jackson Lueck after an error at third by Jack Labosky. Cal Raleigh loaded the bases with a single to the shortstop before an RBI single to right field by Busby brought Sansone home from third for the 3-2 FSU lead.

Solid defense by the Blue Devils limited FSU to two runs in the top of the fifth as Duke knotted the game at three-all in the home half of the frame when Labosky scored from third on a grounder by Michael Smiciklas.

The back-and-forth battle continued into the sixth after Walls opened with a single to short and advanced to second on an errant throw. Sansone’s third double of the afternoon allowed Walls to easily score as FSU assumed the 4-3 edge.

FSU held the Blue Devils without a hit over the final four innings of the contest to preserve the one-run advantage.

MIAMI 4, FLORIDA STATE 2
05/19/2016, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Busby Records Two Doubles in Setback to No. 3 Miami.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Third-ranked Miami used a two-run double by Randy Batista in the seventh inning to overcome an early two-run advantage by 12th-ranked Florida State (33-18, 15-9) as the Hurricanes (42-9, 20-6 ACC) posted a 4-2 victory on Thursday evening at Dick Howser Stadium.

Sophomore Dylan Busby led the way for the FSU offense, finishing with a pair of doubles in a 2-for-4 outing. Busby was one of four Seminole hitters with an extra-base hit along with Quincy Nieporte (1-3, double), Cal Raleigh (1-4, double) and John Sansone (1-4, double).

FSU starter Drew Carlton left the game with a one-run lead after tossing five innings, allowing two hits and one earned run. The sophomore right-hander battled through two weather delays that added an extra hour and 50 minutes to the game, but did not figure into the decision.

Carlton threw 77 pitches and recorded six strikeouts among the 17 Hurricane hitters he faced before giving way to Jim Voyles, who suffered his first setback of the season. Voyles (6-1) surrendered two runs-one earned-in 1.2 innings, while walking three Miami hitters.

"It was one of those games when they needed something good to happen they got it done," said head coach Mike Martin. "The inning that they got the key hit was a credit to them and we showed what we're about to come back and get out of that inning.

FSU broke the scoreless tie in the second inning when Nieporte reached base after being hit by a pitch. Busby followed with a double down the left field line, advancing Nieporte to third. Freshman outfield Donovan Petrey delivered a timely single through the right side of the infield to give the Seminoles a 1-0 advantage.

Ben DeLuzio continued the second inning for the Noles when, like Nieporte, he was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Matt Henderson followed with a walk, plating Busby for the 2-0 FSU lead.

Miami scored its first run of the game in the fifth when Johnny Ruiz roped a triple into right field, scoring Brandon Lopez from first, to make for a 2-1 contest. Ruiz would be stranded at third as the FSU defense responded with three straight outs, including Carlton's sixth strikeout of the game.

The Hurricanes took the lead in the seventh as they scored two runs. Zack Collins drew a leadoff walk to open the frame. A Lopez bunt allowed him to reach first on a fielder's choice. During the play an errant throw by Raleigh, the Seminoles' catcher, allowed to Collins to reach second safely. Willie Abreu was intentionally walked to load the bases for Miami. Batista then delivered a double into left field to scored Collins and Lopez for the 3-2 advantage.

Miami added an insurance run when Johnny Ruiz drew a one-out walk in the ninth. Abreu followed with a triple to right field, scoring Ruiz for the final run of the game.

Lueck Walk-Off Home Run Gives FSU Split in Doubleheader.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State freshman Jackson Lueck capped off a 5-for-8 performance on the day with a walk-off home run in the second game of a doubleheader as 12th-ranked Florida State (34-19, 16-10 ACC) earned a split with a 3-2 victory over third-ranked Miami (43-10, 21-7 ACC) on Saturday at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

The victory over Miami places Florida State fourth overall in the ACC, heading into the conference tournament that begins next week in Durham, N.C. The Seminoles will be in Pool A, along with the Hurricanes, who earned the No. 1 overall seed, and fifth-seeded NC State (34-18, 15-13). The final seed for Pool A will be determined Tuesday in a battle between No. 8 Boston College (31-19, 13-15) and No. 9 Georgia Tech (35-20, 13-16).

Lueck, who wrapped up the second game by going 2-for-3 with two runs and one RBI, blasted a 0-1 hanging changeup by Miami's Ryan Guerra over the centerfield wall for his second walk-off hit as a Seminole. It was one of two extra-base hits for Lueck on the afternoon, who also recorded his second triple.

Joining Lueck among the offensive leaders was Cal Raleigh, who overcame flu-like symptoms to finish 3-of-4 with a double and one RBI. Teammate Dylan Busby (1-4) tallied his fifth triple of the season in the seventh inning to account for the remaining FSU extra-base hit.

Freshman hurler Tyler Holton, who did not figure in the decision, posted his season-high in strikeouts (eight) as he tied his longest outing of the season (six innings). The Tallahassee, Fla., native faced 22 Miami hitters and allowed only one earned run on two hits.

He was followed on the mound by combination of Alec Byrd, Jim Voyles, Matt Kinney and Tyler Warmoth, who collectively held the Canes' lineup to three hits and one earned run. Warmoth (1-1) earned the victory after posting the last two outs of the Miami 10th.

"You have to be mentally tough," said head coach Mike Martin. "In the first game we fell behind 8-2 and we could've tossed it in, but we battled. In the second game we made a mistake that cost us a run, but we stayed mentally tough. It was a big win-plain and simple."

Lueck recorded the first of nine FSU hits in the second game when he sent a triple into right field. He scored two batters later on a grounder to third by Steven Wells Jr., giving the Noles a 1-0 lead in the second inning.

Miami tied the game in the third when Jacob Heyward slid into home on a fielder's choice by Joe Gomez.

UM's Willie Abreu connected on his second home run of the day to give the Canes a 2-1 advantage in the seventh, but FSU quickly retaliated.

The rally began with Busby's triple to right centerfield. Busby, hitting ninth in the lineup, was tagged out two batters later as he attempted to tie the game on a fielder's choice by John Sansone. However, the Seminoles quickly turned that misfortune into a positive when Raleigh delivered a clutch double down the right field line to score Sansone from first and knot the game at 2-2.

The game remained deadlocked until Lueck led off the 10th inning with his home run to centerfield. It marks the first time walk-off home run by the Seminoles since Quincy Nieporte's blast against Florida on April 14, 2015.

GAME ONE RECAP

Miami coupled a solid pitching performance by Michael Mediavilla (10-1) with a four-run fourth inning to post an 8-5 victory in the opening game of Saturday's doubleheader against Florida State.

Jackson Lueck was the catalyst for the Florida State offense, hitting 3-for-5 from the plate to go along with two runs and one RBI. He was joined by Steven Wells Jr., who tallied two RBI while hitting 1-for-2.

The Seminoles held Miami scoreless after the fourth inning behind the bullpen trio of Will Zirzow, Andrew Karp and Matthew Kinney. Zirzow enjoyed one of his best outings of the season as he struck out three Hurricane hitters while yielding only one hit and one walk in a season-high three innings.

Miami grabbed a 1-0 advantage in the first inning when Zack Collins sent a 2-0 pitch over the left centerfield wall for his 11th home run of the season. The Canes picked up their second run in the second with a solo home run inside the right field foul pole by Willie Abreu.

Lueck opened the second inning for the Seminoles with a single to left and advanced to third on back-to-back walks by Ben DeLuzio and Matt Henderson. Steven Wells Jr. lifted a sacrifice fly to right field, scoring Lueck from third, as FSU trailed 2-1.

The Hurricanes stretched their lead to 4-1 in the third inning with a two-run double into right centerfield by Johnny Ruiz.

UM capitalized on four hits in the fourth inning to stretch its advantage to 8-1. The Canes notched their first run on an RBI single to left field by Edgar Michelangeli, which plated Randy Batista. Three batters later, Collins roped a two-run single into right field to bring home Carl Chester and Michelangeli for the 7-1 advantage. A Brandon Lopez single to right field scored Barr as Miami's completed the four-run frame.

With one out in the fourth, Lueck delivered his second hit of the day and moved to second after DeLuzio worked a walk. Two batters later, Wells Jr. singled through the left side of the infield to score Lueck for the second FSU run of the game.

FSU continued to chip away at the Miami lead in the sixth inning when Quincy Nieporte led off the frame with a double to right. Nick Graganella was inserted as a pinch runner and Lueck followed with an RBI single up the middle to trim the deficit to 8-3.

Graganella kick-started the FSU offense in the eighth with a leadoff single to left field. Henderson kept the inning alive with a two-out single to center, moving Graganella to third, as he advanced second on a throwing error by Chester. A Donovan Petrey single, coupled with a throwing error by Michelangeli, scored both Graganella and Henderson as the Seminoles scored the final runs of the 8-5 contest.

FSU applied pressure in the ninth inning with back-to-back walks by John Sansone and Bryan Bussey, but the combination of reliever Bryan Garcia (S, 14) and the Miami defense recorded three straight outs to complete the three-run victory.

Lueck Walk-Off Home Run Gives FSU Split in Doubleheader.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State freshman Jackson Lueck capped off a 5-for-8 performance on the day with a walk-off home run in the second game of a doubleheader as 12th-ranked Florida State (34-19, 16-10 ACC) earned a split with a 3-2 victory over third-ranked Miami (43-10, 21-7 ACC) on Saturday at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.

The victory over Miami places Florida State fourth overall in the ACC, heading into the conference tournament that begins next week in Durham, N.C. The Seminoles will be in Pool A, along with the Hurricanes, who earned the No. 1 overall seed, and fifth-seeded NC State (34-18, 15-13). The final seed for Pool A will be determined Tuesday in a battle between No. 8 Boston College (31-19, 13-15) and No. 9 Georgia Tech (35-20, 13-16).

Lueck, who wrapped up the second game by going 2-for-3 with two runs and one RBI, blasted a 0-1 hanging changeup by Miami's Ryan Guerra over the centerfield wall for his second walk-off hit as a Seminole. It was one of two extra-base hits for Lueck on the afternoon, who also recorded his second triple.

He was followed on the mound by combination of Alec Byrd, Jim Voyles, Matt Kinney and Tyler Warmoth, who collectively held the Canes' lineup to three hits and one earned run. Warmoth (1-1) earned the victory after posting the last two outs of the Miami 10th.

"You have to be mentally tough," said head coach Mike Martin. "In the first game we fell behind 8-2 and we could've tossed it in, but we battled. In the second game we made a mistake that cost us a run, but we stayed mentally tough. It was a big win-plain and simple."

The Seminoles held Miami scoreless after the fourth inning behind the bullpen trio of Will Zirzow, Andrew Karp and Matthew Kinney. Zirzow enjoyed one of his best outings of the season as he struck out three Hurricane hitters while yielding only one hit and one walk in a season-high three innings.

Miami grabbed a 1-0 advantage in the first inning when Zack Collins sent a 2-0 pitch over the left centerfield wall for his 11th home run of the season. The Canes picked up their second run in the second with a solo home run inside the right field foul pole by Willie Abreu.

Lueck opened the second inning for the Seminoles with a single to left and advanced to third on back-to-back walks by Ben DeLuzio and Matt Henderson. Steven Wells Jr. lifted a sacrifice fly to right field, scoring Lueck from third, as FSU trailed 2-1.

The Hurricanes stretched their lead to 4-1 in the third inning with a two-run double into right centerfield by Johnny Ruiz.

UM capitalized on four hits in the fourth inning to stretch its advantage to 8-1. The Canes notched their first run on an RBI single to left field by Edgar Michelangeli, which plated Randy Batista. Three batters later, Collins roped a two-run single into right field to bring home Carl Chester and Michelangeli for the 7-1 advantage. A Brandon Lopez single to right field scored Barr as Miami's completed the four-run frame.

With one out in the fourth, Lueck delivered his second hit of the day and moved to second after DeLuzio worked a walk. Two batters later, Wells Jr. singled through the left side of the infield to score Lueck for the second FSU run of the game.

FSU continued to chip away at the Miami lead in the sixth inning when Quincy Nieporte led off the frame with a double to right. Nick Graganella was inserted as a pinch runner and Lueck followed with an RBI single up the middle to trim the deficit to 8-3.

Graganella kick-started the FSU offense in the eighth with a leadoff single to left field. Henderson kept the inning alive with a two-out single to center, moving Graganella to third, as he advanced second on a throwing error by Chester. A Donovan Petrey single, coupled with a throwing error by Michelangeli, scored both Graganella and Henderson as the Seminoles scored the final runs of the 8-5 contest.

FSU applied pressure in the ninth inning with back-to-back walks by John Sansone and Bryan Bussey, but the combination of reliever Bryan Garcia (S, 14) and the Miami defense recorded three straight outs to complete the three-run victory.

Seminoles Score Four in Eighth to Down NC State 7-3.

DURHAM, NC – Florida State scored four runs in the bottom of the eighth inning and Chase Haney won his fifth consecutive decision as fourth-seeded Florida State defeated fifth seeded NC State, 7-3, in the first game of pool play at the 2016 ACC Baseball Tournament at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The Seminoles will face Georgia Tech on Thursday at 3 p.m. in the second round of the tournament.

The Seminoles took an early 1-0 lead on a home run by John Sansone in the bottom of the first inning and after surrendering single runs in the second, third and fourth innings, rallied to win the game with six runs in the final four innings while holding NC State scoreless over the final five innings.

Seminole relief pitchers Ed Voyles, Matthew Kinney and Haney limited the Wolfpack to zero runs on three hits over the final four innings. Haney improved to a perfect 5-0 in the season.

FSU starter Drew Carlton, who did not factor in the decision, threw five innings and allowed four hits, three earned runs, one walk and fanned two. Carlton pitched in his first career ACC Tournament start as he helped the Seminole pitching staff retire nine of the final 14 NC State batters after the fourth inning. The quartet of pitchers allowed only one runner as far as third base in the final five innings.

Haney, who threw 22 pitches to five Wolfpack hitters in earning the win, allowed one hit and finished with one strikeout as he remained perfect on the season. Redshirt senior Tyler Warmoth finished off NC State with a perfect ninth inning that included one strikeout.

Florida State began its rally in the sixth inning after a leadoff walk by Jackson Lueck. Quincy Nieporte followed with a single into centerfield, moving Lueck into scoring position at second. Three batters later, Dylan Busby roped a two-out single to right that scored Lueck and Nieporte to deadlock the game at 3-3.

The Seminoles regained the lead in the eighth when Lueck opened the frame with a double to right field. Pinch hitter Nick Graganella drew a walk and Ben DeLuzio dropped a bunt down the third base line to load the bases. Steven Wells Jr. followed with a sacrifice fly to centerfield, scoring Lueck from third, as FSU grabbed the 4-3 lead.

Two batters later, with the bases loaded, Walls delivered a two-out single into right field that plated Graganella and DeLuzio for the 6-3 advantage. Busby scored the final run of the game as he scored on a wild pitch by NC State’s Tommy DeJuneas.

“I definitely think that Nick Graganella’s at-bat was key,” said Walls of the momentum shift in the eighth inning. “Coming into a pinch-hit situation and trying to get the bunt down, to move the runner to third, and he ends up drawing a walk. He was fortunate enough to load the bases up and blow the inning up.”

Busby (1-3) and Walls (1-5) led the Seminole offense with two RBI each, while Nieporte topped the lineup in hits, with a 2-for-3 performance that resulted in one run.

NC State scored its first run of the game as Brock Deatherage stole home to tie the game at 1-1. The Wolfpack took a 2-1 lead in the top of third as Josh McLain lead off the top of the third with a double down the left field line and scored two batters later on a grounder by Evan Mendoza.

NC State increased its lead to 3-1 as Joe Dunand gave the Wolfpack a leadoff runner for the third consecutive inning with a walk in the fourth. He eventually moved to third, before sliding into home on a fielder’s choice by Brett Kinneman.

Sands, Seminoles Shut Down Georgia Tech in 6-1 Win.

DURHAM, NC - A dominating performance by Florida State (36-19) freshman pitcher Cole Sands, along with a pair of two-run home runs by John Sansone and Dylan Busby, highlighted a 6-1 victory over Georgia Tech (36-22). The Seminoles improved to 2-0 in pool play at the 2016 ACC Tournament at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

The Seminoles will enjoy an off day on Friday as they prepare to face Miami in the final game of pool play on Saturday at 3 p.m. Should FSU defeat Miami, it will advance to the 11th ACC Championship game in program history.

Sands, who moved to 5-6 on the season, scattered three hits and allowed one earned run on 84 pitches. The Tallahassee, Fla., native didn't allow a hit after the third inning, or multiple hits in the same inning, as he made 84 pitches to the 19 Georgia Tech batters he faced.

Jim Voyles tossed the next three innings for Seminoles, yielding three hits to the 12 batters he faced, while striking out one Georgia Tech hitter. Chase Haney closed out the ninth for FSU, holding the Yellow Jacket hitless on seven pitches to preserve the five-run lead.

"Cole gave us exactly what we needed, and that was a good start, a quality start," said head coach Mike Martin. "I know some people may look at a quality start as being six innings. With the way we tried to play this year, if our starter can give us five innings, that's a quality start, because we're going to turn it over to the bullpen.

"Jim came in and did an excellent job, and Chase Haney, pitched very well," added Martin. "It was a game in which we made some very good defensive plays from the double play that we turned, to the play up the middle in the ninth inning."

The trio of Sansone (2-5, 2 runs), Jackson Lueck (3-3, 2 runs) and Busby (1-4, run) led the way for FSU offensively. Sansone and Busby came through with two RBI apiece as they each hit their ninth home run of the season.

"We were just playing our game the last couple days, and today, I was just trying to hit my pitch," said Sansone. "The last couple at-bats, I was getting out of my comfort zone. The first two at-bats, I was just really trying to pick out my pitch."

Sansone got the FSU offense rolling early in the first inning with a single into left centerfield. Two batters later, after Lueck was hit by a pitch, Cal Raleigh delivered a single through the left side to give the Seminoles a 1-0 lead. With Ben DeLuzio at the plate, Raleigh was caught in a rundown allowing Lueck to score from third for the 2-0 FSU advantage.

Georgia Tech got one run back in the bottom of the first after a leadoff single to into centerfield by Connor Justus. The Yellow Jackets sliced their deficit in half, 2-1, on a sacrifice fly by Kel Johnson that scored Justus from third.

Sansone delivered his second home run of the ACC Tournament over the left field wall to give FSU a 4-1 advantage in the third inning. The senior captain also scored Taylor Walls, who opened the frame with a single to right field.

Lueck leadoff the seventh inning with a single to right centerfield for his third hit and Florida State's ninth of the game. Two batters later, Busby sent a blast over the left field wall to give the Noles a 6-1 edge.

Busby Walk-Off Single Delivers FSU to ACC Championship Game.

DURHAM, NC - Dylan Busby delivered a bases loaded walk-off single to left field in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift fourth-seeded Florida State (37-19) to a 5-4 victory over top-seeded Miami (45-11) at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The Seminoles will now face Clemson in to Sunday's ACC Championship game.

The Noles, who swept their way through Pool A play, will meet the Tigers, who captured Pool B play with a win over Wake Forest earlier Saturday, in the title game on Sunday morning at 10 a.m. The clash with the Tigers marks the fourth meeting between the two programs for the ACC Tournament crown and FSU's 11th appearance in the Championship game since joining the league in 1992.

The Seminoles' game against Clemson, which has been moved to at 10 am start because of rain predicted for the Durham area Sunday afternoon. The game can be heard on 106.1 FM in Tallahassee and free of charge on Seminoles.com and the Florida State Seminoles Game Day app. The game will also be broadcast on ESPN2, and via satellite radio on SiriusXM College Sports National Channel 84.

"It's a great win for us, more so from a standpoint of the way our young men displayed character and poise when they could have folded their tent," said head coach Mike Martin. "We had a lot of freshmen and sophomores in the ballgame at the end. We had some very good at-bats to position ourselves with an opportunity, and certainly glad to see great contributions of all of these young men. But it took all of us to be successful today."

Joining Busby among the primary contributors for the Seminoles was hurler Tyler Holton, who finished with a season-high nine strikeouts, and Quincy Nieporte, who came through with a two-RBI single to right field in the seventh.

Tied at 4-4, FSU set the table for the winning run in the ninth when Jackson Lueck opened the frame with a single to third off Devin Meyer, giving the Noles their seventh leadoff runner of the afternoon. Cal Raleigh and Nick Graganella both drew walks, moving Lueck to third, loading the bases for Ben DeLuzio.

DeLuzio reached base on a fielder's choice as Lueck was tagged out as he attempted to score from third. Busby followed by roping a 1-0 pitch into left field, scoring Raleigh from third for the game-winning run.

Holton, making his first ACC Tournament start, scattered seven hits over seven innings on the mound to mark his longest appearance of the season. With a solid FSU defense behind him, Holton allowed only one walk over his final 3.1 innings, before allowing a hit to Miami's Carl Chester to open the eighth.

Holton, who did not factor in the decision, gave way to Matthew Kinney, who pitched a perfect eighth inning that included one strikeout. Tyler Warmoth came out of the bullpen in the ninth, yielding the tying runs, before the combination of Chase Haney and Alec Byrd, who earned his first win of the season, recorded the final outs.

Busby, the offensive leader for the Seminoles, was one of three batters with multiple hits against Miami. He wrapped up the game 4-for-5 with three RBI and one run, including his team-leading 10th home run and 13th double of the campaign.

Nieporte, hitting fourth in the lineup, wrapped up his day 3-for-3 from the plate, and was responsible for two RBI and one run. Lueck joined his teammates with a 2-for-5 performance as he raised his batting average to .413.

With two outs in the second, Miami's Willie Abreu hit a double off the left field wall. Teammate Randy Batista doubled into the left centerfield gap, scoring Abreu for the early 1-0 Hurricane advantage.

Miami added its second run in the top of the fourth when Batista hit a triple high off the left field wall. The next batter, Jacob Heyward, delivered a single into left to plate Batista for the 2-0 edge.

Nieporte opened the fourth inning with a single down the left field line, his second hit of the day. Two batters later, Busby knotted the game at two-all with a 399-foot home run blast over the centerfield wall.

John Sansone led off the fifth inning for the Noles by reaching on a hit by pitch. It was the second time that he was struck on the day as he passed Karl Jernigan to become FSU's all-time hit by pitch leader. After Miami issued an intentional walk to Cal Raleigh, Nieporte hit a two-run single to right field to give the Seminoles the 4-2 lead.

Miami loaded the bases with one out in the top of the ninth, knotting the game at 4-4 on a single to left centerfield by Edgar Michelangeli that scored the tandem of Abreu and Batista.

Busby Delivers Solid Performance Against Tigers.

DURHAM, NC – Clemson tallied five runs in three of the first four innings and held off a late Florida State (37-20) rally as it captured the 2016 ACC Baseball championship with an 18-13 marathon victory over the Seminoles on Sunday at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The two teams decided the 43rd league championship in a game marred by rain delays that totaled nearly five hours.

FSU now turns its attention to the NCAA Tournament as is set to make its 39th consecutive appearance, 37th straight under the direction of head coach Mike Martin and 53rd overall. The Seminoles, selected as one of 16 regional hosts on Sunday evening, will find out the remaining teams in the Tallahassee Regional when the brackets are released live on ESPNU on Monday at 12 p.m.

“We battled; we came up short,” said head coach Mike Martin. “You tip your hat to the other club. We go to the most important weekend of the year now, and that's to see what we can do to accomplishing our goal, and that's getting to Omaha.”

All-Tournament first baseman Dylan Busby capped off a solid four-game stretch for the Seminoles as he finished 3-for-5 with three RBI, three runs and two home runs against the Tigers (42-18). Busby, who had the first multi-home run performance of his collegiate career, finished among the in the top five players in the tournament in hits (nine-1st), runs (six-1st), home runs (four-1st), RBI (10-1st), slugging percentage (1.294-1st) and batting average (.529-2nd).

FSU also received two RBI apiece from the combination of John Sansone (1-6, run), Cal Raleigh (1-2, run) and Tyler Holton (1-2, HR). Freshman outfielder Jackson Lueck, the Seminoles’ other All-Tournament selection, ended his first ACC Championship with a 1-for-4 outing that included one RBI, one run and his ninth double of the season.

Lueck received the All-Tournament accolades after capping off his stretch in Durham by hitting 7-for-14 from the plate (.500 batting average), with five runs, three doubles and a .714 slugging percentage.

Clemson assumed a 3-0 lead in the top of the first after the combination of a fielding error at short and a walk allowed Chase Pinder and Seth Beer to reach base for the Tigers.

Chris Okey recorded the first hit, a double high off the left field wall, resulting in three runs crossing the plate for the Tigers. Pinder scored from second and Beer crossed the plate on a throwing error by DeLuzio. An errant throw from Cal Raleigh to Jim Voyles, in the attempt to tag the sliding Beer, allowed Okey to score from third for the three-run advantage.

Taylor Walls manufactured the first FSU run of the game in the bottom of the first inning, leading off the frame with a walk. After a walk by Jackson Lueck moved Walls to second, who then stole third base, and scored two pitches later on a sacrifice fly to left field by Raleigh.

The Tigers then tacked on five runs in the second inning. It began with a muffed throw by Ed Voyles at first base, who allowed Clemson’s Mike Triller to reach base. Chris Williams and Jordan Greene loaded the bases for the Tigers with a hit by pitch and a walk, respectively, before a sacrifice fly by Pinder moved the Clemson lead to 4-1 with a sacrifice fly.

Seth Beer continued the second inning for Clemson with a walk, loading the bases for the second time in the frame. Okey reached on a fielder’s choice, scoring Greene from third, before a single through the right side of the infield by Eli White plated Williams for the 6-1 advantage. Reed Rohlman drove in the final two runs of the inning with a single through the right side of the infield, scoring Okey and White for the 8-1 Clemson lead.

The Tigers had their third straight multi-run inning in the third as they quickly loaded the bases with the combination of Wilson, Triller and Williams. Pinder slapped a bases clearing triple into the right centerfield gap, extending the Clemson lead to 12-1. White quickly followed with a double to left, scoring Pinder, as the Tigers established a 13-1 advantage.

Clemson’s offense remained in overdrive to open the fourth with back-to-back hits by Wilson and Triller, putting runners at the corners. Williams sent a double down the left field line, scoring the combo to give the Tigers their 10th hit of the day and a 15-1 lead. Three batters later White drove a double to left to plate Triller for third run of the frame. Okey upped the lead to 18-1 for the Tigers with a double off the top of the left field wall, scoring White and Beer in the process.

Lueck jumpstarted the FSU offense in the bottom of the fourth with a double to right. He quickly scored the second Seminole run of the game with a single up the middle by Raleigh. Pinch hitter Tyler Holton blasted a two-run home run over the right field wall, making for an 18-4 Clemson lead.

Busby continued to swing the hot bat in the ACC Tournament as he hit his third home run in as many days, this time over the left field wall, to cap off a four-run inning for the Seminoles who trailed 18-5 through four complete innings.

FSU scored eight runs on five hits in the bottom of the eighth and in the process trimmed the Tigers’ lead to five runs. Busby opened the inning with a leadoff single to right field before a two-run double down the right field line by Nick Graganella scored the combination of Busby and Hayden Kelly, who reached base on a walk.

Hank Truluck and Walls each walked to load the bases for John Sansone, who delivered a two-RBI single to right field, bringing home Truluck and Graganella to cut the deficit in half. Lueck grounded to short, scoring Walls from third as the Seminoles trailed 18-10.

The home half of the eighth continued for FSU when Bryan Bussey delivered a double into right field, plating Sansone. The Seminoles concluded theirscoring on a two-run home run to centerfield by Busby, who moved his home run total on the year to 12 for the Noles.

Busby Highlights Seminoles 18-6 Win Over Alabama State.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Dylan Busby was one of four Florida State hitters with at least two hits in the Seminoles’ (38-20) 18-6 victory over Alabama State (38-20) in their first game of the Tallahassee Regional on Friday evening on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium. The victory advances FSU to the winner’s bracket where they will face fellow opening round winner Southern Miss on Saturday at 6 p.m.

Busby finished 3-for-6 from the plate, including a double and a triple, and was responsible for a career-high five RBI. FSU also had three-hit performances from Quincy Nieporte (3-5, 2 RBI), who finished the night with two doubles, and Taylor Walls (3-5, 2 RBI, double). Freshman Cal Raleigh contributed two hits and an RBI for FSU, including one double.

Starting hurler Drew Carlton (7-3) earned the win after scattering eight hits and five earned runs over 6.2 innings. Carlton faced 29 batters, threw 115 pitches and finished with five strikeouts in his 16th start of the season.

Carlton was followed on the mound by Mike Compton, Chase Haney and Ed Voyles. That trio combined to strike out three Hornet hitters as they limited the Alabama State lineup to two hits, one run and three walks.

FSU’s offense started off red hot as it exploded for seven runs on five hits in the first. Walls singled to left to open the inning and moved to second after a fielding error that allowed John Sansone to reach base. Jackson Lueck delivered his first postseason hit, a single to center, as Walls provided FSU with the 1-0 advantage.

Raleigh loaded the bases for Busby, who scored Sansone from third on a fielder’s choice for the 2-0 FSU lead. Two batters later, Tyler Holton singled to right field to score Raleigh as the Noles assumed the three-run lead.

With the bases loaded, Ben DeLuzio drew a walk to score Busby from third, as FSU forged ahead 4-0. Matt Henderson, the ninth batter to go to the plate, provided FSU with a 5-0 lead on a sacrifice fly to left field. The Seminoles scored their final two runs when a single to right by Walls, which also included a throwing error by the Alabama State catcher, allowed the combination of DeLuzio and Holton to cross the plate.

Alabama State made it a 7-1 affair in the second after Dillion Cooper, who doubled to left field to open the inning, crossed the plate on a single to left by Hunter Phillips.

FSU enjoyed its second multi-run inning of the game by capitalizing on a walk and three hits to open the fourth. Lueck leadoff the frame with a walk and quickly moved to second on a single to right field by Raleigh. Busby doubled down the left field line, scoring the tandem of Lueck and Raleigh, as the FSU lead ballooned to 9-1. Nieporte followed with his second hit of the game, a double to left, to score Busby and push the Seminoles’ lead to 10-1.

The Hornets snapped their four-inning scoreless drought in the seventh as they emerged with five runs on five hits. Ray Hernandez got the offense started with a single to left and scored two batters later on a single by Hunter Allen. Yamil Pagan doubled to left to plate Allen for the 10-3 Seminole lead.

Alabama State scored five runs in its half of the seventh inning.

ASU’s Diandre Amion highlighted the inning with a two-run home run over the right field wall, cutting the FSU lead in half, 10-5. The Hornets added their final run of the game on a single by Chris Biocic that plated Carlos Ocasio, who earlier reached base on a fielding error, which cut Florida State’s once comfortable lead to four runs.

FSU utilized five hits and two Hornet errors to put seven runs across in the seventh and in the process extended its lead to 17-6. Henderson collected the first hit of the inning, a double to right center, and scored on a double to left centerfield by Walls. Walls advanced to third as the Hornet defense attempted to cut down Henderson at the plate and scored on a throwing error by the Alabama State shortstop.

Sansone and Lueck provided FSU with two runners after both being hit by pitches. Sansone scored and Lueck advanced to third when Raleigh roped a double to left centerfield for a 13-6 Seminole lead. With Raleigh and Lueck in scoring position, Busby hit a bases clearing triple to left field to push the Seminole lead to 15-6. Busby scored from third on a double by Nieporte, capping off the seventh inning.

Sansone came through again for the Seminoles in the eighth, with a one-out double into right centerfield. Sansone move to third on a wild pitch. Pinch hitter Bryan Bussey drove in the final FSU run with a sacrifice fly to centerfield to make the score 18-6.

The win advanced the Seminoles to the championship round of the Tallahassee Regional. Florida State will face the winner of Sunday's matinee between South Alabama and Southern Miss at 6 p.m. Sunday. Should the Seminoles win Sunday night's game they will capture the regional championship and advance to next weekend's Super Regional.

Holton (3-3) allowed two runs, two walks and struck out six Golden Eagle hitters in 5.2 innings on the mound. Both of the hits and walks came in the first inning before the Tallahassee, Fla., native found his rhythm and retired 14 of the next 16 USM batters he faced.

Holton was followed on the mound by Jim Voyles, who limited the Southern Miss hitters to one hit and two walks over 3.1 innings. Voyles, who notched his second save of the season, faced 11 batters and made 33 pitches to close out the five-run victory.

Holton and Voyles combined to hold Southern Miss to zero runs on only two hits after the first inning. After their first two batters reached base and scored the first two runs of the game, the two Seminole pitchers allowed only three runners to advance as far as second base and held the final 31 batters off the game for the Golden Eagles off of the scoreboard.

Lueck, who finished 2-for-5 from the plate with two RBI, posted his third home run of the season. Joining him with multiple RBI were Steven Wells Jr. (1-3, 2 RBI), who connected on his second career home run, and Matt Henderson (1-3), who came through with a single in the fifth to record his third two-RBI outing of the campaign.

FSU also received a solid performance from John Sansone, who capped off his 30th multi-hit game of the season by going 3-for-4 from the plate and scoring one run.

USM's offense applied pressure to Holton in the first inning with two walks and a single by Jake Sandlin which loaded the bases for cleanup hitter Chase Scott. Scott brought home Dylan Burdeaux for the first run of the game on a sacrifice fly to left. Two batters later, teammate Hunter Slater delivered a two-out single to right field, scoring Sandlin as Southern Miss grabbed the 2-0 advantage.

Dylan Busby set the FSU offense in motion in the second inning with a leadoff double down the left field line. Two batters later, Ben DeLuzio joined Busby on the base paths after drawing a one-out walk to put runners at first and second. Wells Jr. delivered the key hit of the game for the Seminoles with a three-run home run to left field, as FSU assumed the 3-2 lead.

The Seminoles extended their lead to two runs in the third inning after Cal Raleigh led off the frame with a walk. Quincy Nieporte moved Raleigh into scoring position with a single up the middle before the Noles loaded the bases with a walk by Wells. A walk issued to Henderson by USM pitcher Jake Winston brought Raleigh home from third for the 4-2 FSU lead.

DeLuzio manufactured another Seminole run in the fifth inning after drawing a one-out walk. He motored to second base on his 14th steal of the campaign before Henderson dropped a single into left field, scoring the speedy DeLuzio from second as FSU forged ahead 5-2.

Sansone put a leadoff runner on base for the Noles the fourth time when he was hit by a pitch to open the sixth. Lueck followed with a two-run home run to left field, stretching the lead to 7-2.

Seminoles Blast Six Home Runs in 18-6 Win Over South Alabama.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Dylan Busby smacked two home runs and teammates Jackson Lueck, Cal Raleigh, Tyler Holton and Hayden Kelly added one home run each as Florida State posted an 18-6 win over South Alabama in the championship game of the Tallahassee Regional on Sunday evening on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium. The victory improves the Seminoles to 40-20 as they have now posted 40 wins in 39 consecutive seasons.

The Seminoles will travel to face the No. 1 overall seeded Florida Gators in Super Regional play at McKethan Stadium in Gainesville, Fla., later this week. The dates and times for all eight Super Regionals will be announced when each of the 16 regionals have completed play.

Busby (3-6, 3 RBI), named Most Outstanding Player of the Tallahassee Regional, recorded two home runs and a double in the victory. It marks the third time this season he has recorded multiple home runs in the same game. During the regional, Busby finished 8-of-17 (.471 batting average) at the plate with eight RBI, seven runs scored, three doubles, two home runs and a 1.118 slugging percentage.

The remaining five Seminole hitters with multi-hit performances included John Sansone (3-5, 3 RBI, double), Taylor Walls (3-4, 2 RBI, 2 doubles), Quincy Nieporte (2-4, RBI), Raleigh (2-4, 2 RBI) and Lueck (2-4, 4 RBI, HR). The offensive explosion resulted in 19 hits, 10 extra base hits and the most home runs (six) in an NCAA postseason game by Florida State since the Seminoles recorded seven against South Alabama on June 1, 2003.

Florida State's Cole Sands (6-6) wrapped up his best start of the season by limiting the South Alabama offense to two hits and one earned run over five innings. He tossed 69 pitches to the 18 Jaguar hitters he faced. After allowing a home run to the first batter he faced, Sands retired the next seven consecutive batters and did not allow another run.

South Alabama took a short-lived 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first when Travis Swaggerty lifted a 2-0 pitch over the right field wall for the opening run of the game.

Florida State retaliated in the top of the second with four runs.

A leadoff walk by Raleigh was followed by Busby's team-leading 13th home run of the season giving the Seminoles to grab a 2-1 advantage.

Ben DeLuzio extended the second inning with a two-out walk. DeLuzio moved into scoring position after swiping his 15th stolen base of the season. Matt Henderson followed with a walk before Walls cleared the bases with a double down the right field line, extending the FSU lead to 4-1.

Florida State added seven runs in the third inning - an inning that saw the Seminoles hit three home runs.

Lueck gave the Seminoles a leadoff runner for the third straight inning when he earned a walk to open the inning. Raleigh quickly brought his teammate across the plate when he blasted his 10th home run of the season to right field, giving FSU a 6-1 edge. Busby continued the offensive onslaught when he hit his sixth home run since May 26th over the left field wall for a six-run advantage.

Nieporte collected his first hit, a single to left, as the Seminoles had their fourth straight hitter reach base. He was followed by Holton, who stretched the Florida State lead to 9-1 after lifting a 1-0 pitch over the right field fence.

Henderson kept the third inning alive with a one-out walk. He plated the 10th run of the game for the Noles two batters later when Sansone drove a double to left. Lueck recorded the seventh hit of inning for the Seminoles with a single up the middle that scored Sansone for an 11-1 lead.

Florida State had its third multi-run inning of the game in the top of the fifth, notching four runs on five hits.

Walls provided the first hit of the inning with his second double of the afternoon and moved to third with a single to right by Sansone. Lueck became the fourth different Seminole hitter to smack a home run when he sent a 1-1 pitch over the centerfield wall for the 14-1 advantage. The final run of the inning crossed the plate when a double to left by Busby was followed by an RBI single up the middle by Nieporte.

Florida State scored two more runs in the sixth inning.

Henderson became the eighth hitter in the FSU lineup to record a hit with a single up the middle. Walls followed with a single to right and both runners preceded to move up on a wild pitch by USA's Avery Geyer. Sansone recorded his third hit of the game, a single up the middle, to bring home Walls and Henderson for a 17-1 advantage.

Florida State put its final run across in the seventh inning when Kelly hit the first home run his career over the right field fence. That blast was the Seminoles' sixth of the game as they assumed an 18-1 lead.

South Alabama used four hits to put three runs across in the bottom of the eighth.

The Jaguars picked up their first run on a fielding error at second that allowed Jalen Haskin to score from third. Ryan Raspino followed with a double down the left field line, bringing home Swaggerty to make for an 18-3 game. Haskin represented the final run of the inning when he crossed the plate on a double to centerfield by Danny Martinez.

The Jaguars tacked on two runs in the ninth, making for the 18-6 final, on a two-run home run to left field by Ben Gann.

Carlton Puts On Dazzling Performance in 3-0 Win Over Gators.

GAINESVILLE, FL - Sophomore hurler Drew Carlton recorded the first complete game shutout of his career and in the process provided Florida State (41-20) with a 1-0 advantage in the 2016 Gainesville Super Regional as the Seminoles snapped a five-game losing streak to Florida (50-14) with a 3-0 victory on Saturday evening at McKethan Stadium.

Carlton becomes the first Seminole pitcher to toss a complete game shutout in the NCAA Tournament since Matt Lynch achieved the feat with a three-hit, eight-strikeout performance against Jacksonville in the 2003 Tallahassee Regionals.

Carlton, who improved to 8-3 on the campaign, retired the final 19 Gator hitters in the lineup as Florida State blanked its in-state rivals for the first time since March 11, 1995. Florida did not have a runner reach second base on the evening as Carlton limited the lineup to two hits and became the first Seminole pitcher to record a complete game shutout since Mike Compton went the distance in a 7-0 victory against Boston College on March 6, 2015.

"That was definitely one of the most fun games I've ever pitched in," said Carlton. "I definitely wanted that one. This was a big win for us and the whole team."

Carlton, a native of Lakeland, Fla., surrendered his first hit of the game to Buddy Reed in the second inning. The following inning, he saw Danny Reyes send a base hit through the right side of the infield before a double play by the combination of John Sansone, Matt Henderson and Dylan Busby ended the threat. Carlton then preceded to retire the final 19 consecutive Florida hitters, including four via strikeout, en route to his second win of the NCAA Tournament.

"That was definitely a big thing in that inning," said Carlton of the double play. "Keeping the pitch count low helps us all to go farther in the game. The double plays, that's one of the big things that we preach from Coach (Mike) Bell. That really helped me throughout the game."

Offensively the Seminoles were led by Henderson (2-4, double), Sansone (1-4, double) and Taylor Walls (1-5). Walls joined Tyler Holton as the only FSU hitter with an RBI, which came on a double to left in the two-run fifth inning.

"I'm very pleased with the way Drew (Carlton) pitched," added head coach Mike Martin. "He was the key to the ballgame. I don't know when I've ever seen him pitch better, and he's been with us for two years. It was a great win, but every one of these young men understand the game and know that we've got to be ready to go tomorrow."

The Seminoles plated the game's first run in the top of the fourth with a leadoff double down the right field line by Jackson Lueck. Cal Raleigh followed with a walk and two batters later Quincy Nieporte loaded the bases after being hit on the shoulder. Holton worked the count to draw a walk, giving FSU the 1-0 advantage before a double play ended the threat.

FSU put two more runs across the plate in the fifth after Henderson opened the frame with a single to centerfield, forcing the Gators to turn to reliever Dane Dunning. Walls kept the momentum going for the Seminoles with a double off the left field wall, scoring Henderson from first for the 2-0 advantage.

Sansone reached on fielding error by Florida's Deacon Liput, allowing Walls to scamper home from second for the 3-0 advantage as the Noles scored what proved to be the final run of the game.

"It was a ballgame in which we played very well," said head coach Mike Martin. "It seemed everything went our way. Our guys took advantage of opportunities. We also know that it's a nice feeling, but it's also a game of baseball that we understand. We know that tomorrow is a very, very important game. We've got to be ready to go.

Super Regional Showdown Set For Monday with Florida Setback.

GAINESVILLE, FL - The Florida State lineup was limited to two hits by Florida's Logan Shore as the intra-state rival Gators (51-14) knotted the Gainesville Super Regional at 1-1 with a 5-0 victory on Sunday evening at McKethan Stadium.

Monday's showdown, which marks the 240th installment in the all-time series between the two programs, will feature Florida State freshman right-hander Cole Sands (6-6, 4.21 ERA) and Florida lefty A.J. Puk (2-3, 3.21).

Florida State received a solid outing from freshman hurler Tyler Holton (3-4), who tossed six innings, allowed two runs-one earned-one walk and finished with six strikeouts. His counterpart on the mound, Logan Shore (12-0), threw eight innings, faced 28 Seminoles hitters and posted nine strikeouts.

Holton was one of five pitchers to toe the rubber for the Seminoles, along with Ed Voyles, Alec Byrd and Will Zirzow, who combined to allow three hits, one walk and one run in 2.1 innings. Chase Haney took over for Voyles in the eighth, yielding two runs and two walks.

John Sansone (1-3) and Quincy Nieporte (1-2) were responsible for the two Florida State hits on the evening. They were two of five Seminole hitters to reach base, along with Taylor Walls and Ben DeLuzio, who reached via walks. Teammate Jackson Lueck also reached on a fielder's choice in the ninth.

Dalton Guthrie got the Gators' offense going in the top of the first when he reached on an error at shortstop. Two batters later, Peter Alonso delivered a one-out double off the left field wall, plating Guthrie, as Florida grabbed the 1-0 lead.

Guthrie proved to be the nemesis for Florida State again in the third when he led off the frame with a single up the middle. Two batters later, with Alonso at the plate, Guthrie used a pair of wild pitches to move to third before a grounder to short provided the Gators with a 2-0 advantage.

Florida added a pair of insurance runs in the top of the eighth inning after a leadoff walk by Alonso, coupled with a series of walks by Buddy Reed and Jeremy Vasquez loaded the bases. Freshman second baseman Deacon Liput delivered with a two-out single to right field, scoring Alonso and Reed for the 4-0 Gator lead.

The final Florida run came in the top of the ninth when a pair of back-to-back doubles to left by Alonso and JJ Schwarz resulted in Alonso crossing the plate with the fifth run.

Seminoles End Season In Setback At Florida.

GAINESVILLE, FL - The combination of solid pitching and a four-run fifth inning proved to be the difference as Florida State's (41-22) season came to a close with a 7-0 setback to in-state rival Florida (52-14) in the 2016 Gainesville Super Regional on Monday evening at McKethan Stadium.

The Seminoles, who finished the game with five hits, were kept off-balance by Florida's pitching combination of A.J. Puk, Dane Dunning and Shaun Anderson, which scattered five hits and six walks over eight innings.

Among the five FSU batters with at least one hit was senior captain John Sansone, who finished his final game with a 1-for-4 performance. Sansone, selected in the eighth round in last week's Major League Baseball Draft by the Cincinnati Reds, capped off his FSU career with 242 hits, 192 runs, 64 doubles and 21 home runs.

The remaining four hits came from the combination of Cal Raleigh (1-3), Dylan Busby (1-4), Quincy Nieporte (1-4) and Ben DeLuzio (1-3).

"It's a ballgame in which you tip your hat to Florida," said head coach Mike Martin. "They got in a little trouble in the first inning, and got out of it. You have to tip your hat to them; they did a tremendous job. On behalf of our program, we want to thank the University of Florida for a tremendous job with what they did here with this tournament.

"I'm proud of these young men and what they accomplished this year; it was a good year," Martin added. "Obviously when you don't get to Omaha, it's a disappointment, but we're not taking anything away from what this ball club accomplished."

FSU's sent six pitchers to the mound, including starter Cole Sands, who ends his freshman campaign 6-7 after yielding five hits, two runs-one earned-and two walks. The right-handed hurler also came through with four strikeouts to move his total to 50 on the season.

Sands was followed on the mound by Jim Voyles and Alec Byrd, who combined to surrender six hits and five runs over the next 2.1 innings.

Chase Haney, Tyler Warmoth and Andrew Karp were the remaining three pitchers to toe the rubber for the Seminoles, limiting the Gators to two hits and one walk over the final 2.1 innings.

Florida's Dalton Guthrie opened the bottom of the first with a single to right field, quickly advancing to third when an error at shortstop allowed Buddy Reed to reach first. Three batters later, with JJ Schwarz at the plate, a wild pitch by Sands skated past Raleigh and allowed Guthrie to advance from third for the 1-0 advantage.

The Gators stretched their lead to 2-0 in the third when Peter Alonso sent a two-out solo home run over the left field wall.

UF extended its lead in the fifth after a pair of back-to-back singles by Guthrie and Reed to lead off the frame. Alonso loaded the bases for the Gators when he was struck on the shoulder. Schwarz followed by sending a 1-0 pitch by Voyles over the left field wall for the 6-0 advantage.

A two-out single to left field by Reed extended the sixth for the Gators. Reed bolted to third on a single through the right side by Alonso, putting runners on the corners. Schwarz recorded his fifth RBI of the game when he sent a double into right field, scoring Reed from third for the seventh and final run of the ballgame.
