Florida State Seminoles Baseball Host Pitt Panthers

Florida State (27-12, 11-7) will look to carry on the momentum created this past Tuesday with a home series against Pittsburgh (14-21, 6-12).

In 19 games between the Florida State and Pitt the Noles have never lost, it would be nice if that streak could continue past this weekend before they start a brutal stretch of weekend series. After this weekend the Seminoles travel to Miami, then host Coastal Carolina, travel to Louisville and finish with Clemson at home.

On paper the matchup looks similar to the series with Notre Dame last weekend, the Noles have a large edge in offense while both staffs appear to be similar. To expect the same results as last weekend would be extremely unlucky for FSU, over the past 4 season their BABIP has been around .332, against the Irish it was .197, that is just bad luck. That is not to say that Pitt can't slow down the Noles offense, they held the extremely potent Wake Forest offense to just 3 and 4 runs in their two wins against them last weekend.

It is nice to have Mike Compton back as a weekend starter, he was excellent in his first start since his injury. The bullpen has also shown signs of improvement recently, something that will be desperately needed in the last month of the regular season.
