Compton Pilots 'Noles To Series Victory Over Maryland

Yesterday, Maryland freshman pitcher Mike Shawaryn gave what looked like the pitching performance of this series. Today, FSU sophomore Mike Compton rewrote that narrative, leading the second-ranked Seminoles to a series victory over the Terrapins.

Compton was dialed in, to be brief. He threw a complete-game, two-hit shutout, using just 107 pitches  — 80 of which were strikes — to guide the ‘Noles to a 7-0 victory. Compton struck out ten batters along the way, a new career high for the Seminole righty. Florida State improves to 12-2 on the season, and 2-1 in ACC play.

The game was scoreless until the fourth inning, when FSU posted six runs on the Terps. First baseman John Nogowski led the balanced ‘Noles offense, going 2-3 with a pair of RBIs. Josh Delph, D.J. Stewart, John Sansone, Danny De La Calle, and Ben DeLuzio all knocked in a run as well.

The Seminoles’ next series will be a two-gamer in Orlando against UCF, commencing at 6:30 pm on Tuesday night.
