FSU Baseball vs. Jacksonville: Watch, Preview, Start Pitchets

The Florida State Seminoles (18-28, 6-18) just clinched their first straight win since Opening Day and will host the Jacksonville Dolphins (29-18, 13-11).

The Seminoles won their first game against the ‘Phins 11-2 as away teams in Jacksonville and were knocked out 4-5 as home teams in Dick Howser, making that game the de facto rubber match of the series.

FSU looked a lot better in their last weekend series, but it was against Mercer, a team with an RPI almost as bad as FSU. Sometimes, however, it can snowball for you to get something coming your way, and that’s what FSU vs JU is hoping for.

Regard: ACC Network Extra

FSU: LHP Jamie Arnold (2-5, 7.08 ERA)

Jacksonville: RHP Blake Barquin (3-3, 7.34 ERA)

The Florida State Seminoles (19-28, 6-18) are now four straight winners for the second year this year after beating the Jacksonville Dolphins (29-19, 13-11) 6-4. The ‘Noles recorded 13 hits that day with four doubles and a home run and were led by DeAmez Ross and Jaimie Ferrer, each with three hits.

Ross got things going in second place of the game, sending him over the left field fence, giving the FSU a 1-0 lead. The lead didn’t last long as the Dolphins homed themselves a two-run homer to start the inning after an error. Outside of the one home run, Jaime Arnold served well. He gave up just one hit and earned a run by striking out two over 3.1 innings.

FSU would start the game in the fifth with Ross starting the inning with a single and going up on a James Tibbs walk. He would come around the corner a batter later when Cam Smith doubled to left field. Unfortunately, the ‘Noles could no longer gain an advantage and struck twice with runners second and third.

Ben Barrett took over Arnold in the fourth and had a solid 2.2 innings (three hits, three strikeouts, no walks). In the seventh, Jacksonville started the inning and moved up 60 feet during a sack bunt attempt on a wild field. Doug Kirkland came in and gave up a run with a sack fly, but also knocked out three of three innings of work and gave up just one hit.

The Seminoles used a bit of two-out magic with a Tibbs walk, Smith single and Treyton rank double to left field to tie the game. Smith hit a batter later on a wild pitch, giving the FSU a 4-3 lead. The next batter was a Jacksonville home run, tying the game again, this time at four.

Despite the struggles this team has seen, they didn’t give up and they didn’t give up that night either. Colton Vincent came on base through a miss to start the inning and advanced to second through Connor Moore’s sackbunt. After Jordan Carrion was flown to the center, Ross made it big again. Ross sliced ​​a bloop single over the short stop giving FSU the lead, then padded it when Jaimie Ferrer’s right field fly-out was lost in light. Kirkland pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning to secure the game for Florida State.

As a group, the FSU pitching team largely kept Jacksonville in check with just five hits recorded. Two of those five hits were home runs and another was a double. While most hits were extra bases, Seminole pitchers only walked two batters and hit none, limiting the damage that could be done on those extra base hits.

Next: Florida State has a very big Test hosting the #1 Demon Deacons for their final home weekend series.
