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.
