After the Florida State baseball team swept Hofstra this weekend, they faced the Jacksonville University Dolphins yesterday evening. J.U. has always been a tough competitor in the past, and it seemed as if it would be again. However, the Noles managed to come from behind and won 16-9 against the Dolphins. According to seminoles.com stats, FSU managed to pull out 15 hits and 13 walks over the nine innings.
A few of the players had career high performances last night. First baseman Jayce Boyd matched his personal record of four-hits and a five RBI. He also hit a single, which allowed two runs. Pitcher Mack Waugh also set a personal record with seven strikeouts. He pitched a total of 3.1 innings and earned the win for the Noles. Coach Mike Martin said that it was well deserved.
Pitchers Robert Benincasa, Brian Busch, Gage Smith and Scott Sitz all did a remarkable job on the mound and gave great efforts in order to keep the Noles in the lead.
Although Florida State was behind 6-2 at the beginning of the game, it all changed when the Dolphins pitcher decided to walk five players in one inning. Not only did that help the game completely change, but it gave the Seminoles the momentum they needed to win the game.
The next time the Noles hit the field will be this Friday at 4:00 when they face Florida International University. Come cheer them on as they work to sweep another series.
