FSU baseball: The anatomy of an ACC sweep over Notre Dame

I mentioned how the offense would probably trend down a bit once the Noles started ACC play. Their streak of scoring seven or more runs ended in the second game, but FSU was plenty productive at the plate. Here are the numbers:

  • 29 for 98 (.296)
  • 5 home runs, 5 doubles, and a triple
  • 6 walks
  • 2 hit batters
  • 20 strikeouts
  • 16 runs scored

The power in ACC play was big in the series against a team that had allowed 28 home runs. I would have liked to have seen more walks, as Notre Dame pitchers came into the series allowing 70 walks in 139 innings. Nevertheless, they almost hit .300 for the series and responded every time the Notre Dame offense scored in Sunday's game while trailing. 


If FSU can continue to get starting pitching like they got this weekend, and the bullpen plays like that? The offense won't have to score 7+ runs every game to win a ton of games, but I'd like to see more production from the offense overall. They'll likely need to score more than four runs against elite teams.
