FSU Baseball Comes Back to Take Opening Series Against VCU


After dropping their opener, FSU baseball came back to win the next two games in convincing fashion to take their first series of 2017 over VCU.

It was maybe the most shocking outcome in all of college baseball to open the 2017 season. FSU baseball, ranked in the top five of almost every single poll, was held to one hit in the opener of their season, losing 3-0 to Virginia Commonwealth of all teams.

Well, the bats at the plate and arms on the mound woke up when the weekend came around – taking the next two games in convincing fashion, including an 11-3 victory Sunday over the Rams to take the three game series.

FSU baseball jumped on the board with four runs in the first two innings, including a two run single by Taylor Walls in the second inning to make it 4-0:

Walls would be the man of the hour again in the fifth inning with a two run double down the right field line to make it 7-2 good guys:

The Seminoles would add four more runs before the game was over – including a home run by Quincy Nieporte, the first RBI by freshman sensation J.C. Flowers and another run tacked on by Matt Henderson:

When it was all said and done, history was made as Mike Martin became just the second coach in college baseball history to win 1,900 games – all of them coming as the man in charge of FSU baseball:

The Seminoles will be back in action Tuesday when the host the USF Bulls inside Dick Howser Stadium. First pitch is at 4 p.m. Florida State will host their second series of the season next weekend when they host Samford in a three game set starting Friday.
