Florida State fell one run short of a Saturday doubleheader sweep as the defense cost them in game two against Texas Tech. FSU has the chance to bounce right back against the Red Raiders this afternoon and still post a winning record on the weekend.
Conor Grady will get the ball for the Seminoles against the Red Raiders for the second time in his career. Grady has been the ‘Noles most consistent starter so far this year. The junior has worked 10 innings of one-run ball, giving up just five hits and one walk. Grady has produced a 0.60 WHIP and an 11.7 K/9. The RHP will look to get revenge on the Red Raiders after giving up two runs in five innings, while taking the loss in the CWS. To hear what Grady has to say on his upcoming start against the Red Raiders, see below:
Austin Becker will get the start for Texas Tech. The RHP is a transfer from Vanderbilt, where he threw just four innings last year. He was the nation’s No. 11 RHP in the 2018 class. So far this season, Becker has posted a 3.38 ERA in 8 innings. The sophomore has given up six hits while walking five. Becker has given up as many free passes as strikeouts so far this year.
It took just 3 games for Nander and Jackson to swap positions again. Also Logan Lacey getting his first career start as a Nole. I’ve been waiting for the TCC-transfer to get some more AB’s. He consistently put quality AB’s together in the fall. For the rest of the lineup check below:
