Wayne McGahee grades the FSU baseball team's performance against Miami.

A+:

Jose Brizuela: After starting of the season with horrible defense Brizuela looked exceptional at third base this weekend. Despite going 0-4 on Friday, Brizuela went 6-9 over the last two days and totaled 6 RBIs.

Starting pitching: Luke Weaver, Brandon Leibrandt and Mike Compton only gave up 5 earned runs this weekend to the No. 14 team in the country.

Gage Smith: Smith pitched 3.1 innings this weekend and gave up 0 runs. He has appeared in 8 of the 9 games that Florida State has played this year and hasn't given up an earned run yet.

A:

John Nogowski: Nogo had a great weekend at the plate. He went 3-9 with 4 RBIs and also had two walks.

B:

D.J. Stewart: Stewart had a good weekend at the plate going 5 for 12, but gets a B due to not playing stellar defense. He got bad jumps on 3 different balls that went over his head.

C:

Justin Gonzalez: Justin went 3-11 with 3 RBIs on the weekend. He had two errors in the Friday game that played a big part of Florida State getting its first loss.

F:

Florida State defense: Florida State committed 5 errors this weekend. All of which had a big impact on the game. That is unacceptable. Center fielder Ben DeLuzio had two that cost the Noles big time.
