Florida State Thumps Miami, 10-2

FSU baseball didn’t take long to restate its claim as the best team in the state, conference, and country on Saturday. The #2 ‘Noles throttled Miami, 10-2, behind another stellar pitching performance by Brandon Leibrandt. The eighth-largest crowd in Seminole baseball history witnessed the victory.

Leibrandt threw 6.2 innings and gave up only one earned run. The #2 Seminoles’ bats did not rest, scoring four in the bottom of the first, and notching five in the FSU seventh. Florida State continued to get great value out of second baseman John Sansone, who, along with first baseman John Nogowski, contributed a pair of RBIs.

The rubber match will be played tomorrow at Dick Howser Stadium in Tallahassee. First pitch is scheduled for 1 pm, and Mike Compton should start for the ‘Noles.
