The No. 25 Florida State Seminoles (32-18, 16-11 ACC) won the series opener, 8-2 against the Richmond Spiders (25-20-1, 11-7 A10) on Friday evening.

Three Up

  • Through six innings of work, left-handed pitcher Drew Parrish struck out eight Spiders, walked three, and allowed just two runs on two hits in the fourth inning. In the victory, the junior improved to 7-4, his most wins in a season as a Seminole. He is now tied with Conor Grady for the team lead in victories.
  • In relief, right-handed pitcher Chase Haney appeared for his season-high twenty-forth time pitching two scoreless innings striking out two and walking two in the process. After striking out the first batter he faced in the ninth inning, Jonah Scolaro found himself in trouble when the Spiders loaded the bases, but the sophomore ended the game with a strikeout and a fielder’s choice ground out to clinch the win.
  • As a team, FSU’s four doubles tied the season high(five times total). Robby Martin doubled twice on Friday, his third time this season bringing his season total within one shy of team- leader Mike Salvatore (16). Salvatore singled and doubled as well to lead the team with 61 hits on the year.

Matheu Nelson also hit his fourth home run:

Three Down

  • Goodbyes are bittersweet and while we are always happy to see Seminoles’ graduate, it usually means we have to watch them go. Prior to Friday’s game, FSU Baseball recognized its graduating players: Chase Haney, Gage Hutchinson, Jonathan Foster, Tim Becker, Mike Salvatore, Drew Mendoza and first base coach Tyler Holt.
  • Drew Parrish had a phenomenal day on the mound, but in the first inning an error allowed the baserunner to move from first to third. Parrish was able to get out of the inning unscathed after a double play ended the inning.
  • Florida State’s second game on Saturday was moved from a 1 PM start to 12 PM because of expected inclement weather. Let’s hope it holds off.
