3 up, 3 down: Florida State takes series opener at Miami

Florida State opened up its series at Miami with a victory.

Florida State opened up a big series at Miami with a 6-3 victory on Friday night.

Three up:

  1. Dylan Busby continued his hot streak at the plate, going 3-5 with 4 RBI and a home run. It was his fifth consecutive game with at least three RBI. His batting average for the season is now the second highest on the team at .309.
  2. Cole Sands had a pretty nice outing, going 4 13 innings, allowing two earned runs on five hits while striking out seven. He kept the damage to a minimum and left with a 4-2 lead that FSU would not relinquish. Jim Voyles also played a key role in the victory, allowing just one earned run in three innings pitched, earning the victory.
  3. For the second straight game, Florida State did not record an error in the field!

Three Down:

  1. The 'Noles only had two walks to six strikeouts on the game, uncharacteristic of the team. This should be an isolated occasion, as FSU has shown, and proved its patience at the plate this season.
  2. Florida State's offense was too isolated with Dylan Busby providing four of the six RBI. Besides Busby, only one 'Nole had a multi-hit game and only one of those seven hits was for extra bases.
  3. In the eighth inning, Drew Carlton allowed a walk with the bases loaded with Florida State only up two runs. Luckily he was able to get out of the jam, however it could have been much worse.

Florida State will face Miami in game two of the weekend series on Saturday at 7 PM.
