FSU Rebounds In Game Two

By: Max Fay 

TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (franchisesportsonline.net) - The game took over four hours to decide a winner, but in the end Florida State flexed its muscles for a 19-9 victory.

“You could look at the score as a casual observer and think the game was over early and we cruised,” Florida State Coach Mike Martin said. “Nothing could be further from the truth. I was very pleased with the way the guys continued to battle. You can never relax especially against a team like Virginia Tech.”

Leon Extends Winning Streak to Nine Games

By: Kristen Edwards  

TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (franchisesportsonline.net) – Leon continued their winning ways this beautiful Saturday afternoon in dominating fashion with an 18-6 win over Godby. It marked the ninth straight victory for the Lions as they improved to 16-4 on the year.

“We’re just trying to stay focused,” Leon Coach Robert Zimmerman said. “We’re trying to improve every single game, and these kids have been rolling pretty well. You kind of worry about having a let down every once in a while after you string together a bunch of wins like we have, so we talked about not having let downs and knowing that the pitcher Godby was going to throw out there today [Logan Lacey] was one of the best pitchers around. That helped us stay focused”.

Godby Overcomes Early Mistakes To Defeat East Gadsden

By John Hynes

TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (franchisesportsonline.net) – The Godby High School baseball team pulled out a sloppy victory on Friday night, beating the East Gadsden Jaguars 10-4.

In a game where Godby (8-7) was heavily favored over the visiting Jaguars (2-9), the Cougars struggled early to find their footing. Godby’s starting pitcher, Justin Barrentine, looked shaky on the mound, walking six batters in five innings.

“Every run they scored was the result of a walk” said Godby coach Jayson Strickland. “I’m not happy with the way we pitched to start the game.”

Technical Difficulties For The Seminoles

By: Max Fay 

TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (franchisesportsonline.net) - Virginia Tech scored five runs in the seventh inning as the Hokies defeated Florida State 8-3 in game one of the three game series at Dick Howser Stadium. The seventh ranked Seminoles drop to 17-2 at home and 20-7 on the season.

FSU thought they had the Hokies right where they wanted them with the score knotted at 2-2 in the seventh inning. The Seminoles have made a habit of timely hitting and late game heroics, but it was Virginia Tech that converted its scoring chances this time.

The seventh inning started out bad for the ‘Noles and only got worse. After back-to-back singles to start the inning, a wild pitch allowed Mac Caples to come home opening the floodgates for the rest of the lineup. When it was all said and done, the Hokies had scored five runs in the inning off four hits and two walks, capped off by Erik Payne’s two-run double to right field.

Wakulla Edges Out Lincoln

By: Andrew Small 

Edited By: Max Fay 

TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (franchisesportsonline.net) - The Wakulla War Eagles narrowly won their away game against the Lincoln Trojans 1-0. Both teams had their scoring chances, and Wakulla was able to capitalize as the pitchers controlled this game to the very end.

The only run of the game came in the top of the fifth when the War Eagles’ Brandon Geiger got up to bat with two men on. He cracked a line drive that landed just fair down the right field line for a double. Nick Lentz came home for the lone run of the game.

Compton Makes Quick Work of Boston College

By: Max Fay

TALLAHASSEE, FLA., (franchisesportsonline.net) - Boston College will be relieved that they won’t have to see anymore of Florida State starting pitcher Mike Compton.

Compton made it look easy Friday night, as he breezed through the Eagles lineup on his way to a two-hit complete game shut out in FSU’s 7-0 win over Boston College (5-7).

“Coach [Mike] Bell did a great job of calling pitches,” Compton said. “He told me what to expect of those hitters, and what we should try to do with those hitters to gain an advantage. It was really trying to command my fastball and slider. I wanted to get ahead of hitters, get ground balls, get outs, and take advantage of the pitch count.”

TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (franchisesportsonline.net) – Lincoln needed just five innings to take care of Leon 14-4 in a faceoff between two longtime district rivals.

Willis McDaniel went 2-for-3 for Lincoln, and Brayson Smith, Blake Reese, Jake Stanbridge, and Cole McCord all went 2-for-4.

The Trojans came into the bottom of the first inning with a 2-0 deficit, but would quickly recover, scoring eight runs and building a comfortable lead. With bases loaded and only one out, command issues would get the better of the Leon pitching staff. The next four batters were either walked or hit by a pitch, forcing in the Trojans first four runs.

Seminoles Grab USF By The Horns

By: Max Fay 

TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (franchisesportsonline.net) – Florida State got a chance to relax and have a little fun at the expense of South Florida Tuesday, after grinding out three tough victories over UNC-Wilmington over the weekend.

The Seminoles scored early and often, routing the Bulls 24-1. FSU (9-3) scored two or more runs in every inning but the sixth and hit home runs in each of their first four innings.

The 24 runs scored by FSU is the most since hanging 37 on Ohio State in the NCAA regional championship back in 2009.

“Well I obviously didn’t see that one coming,” Florida State Coach Mike Martin said. “Maybe we deserved a game like this. We’ve played close games all year long, but it was nice to see everyone get a chance to play.”
