Florida State Blanks Maryland 7–0

Mike Compton threw a complete-game two-hitter as Florida State dominated Maryland to take the series.

Florida State improved to 12-2 on the season and 2-1 in the ACC with a 7-0 victory over Maryland on Sunday. The Seminoles bounced back from Saturday's loss in decisive fashion as starting pitcher Mike Compton threw a complete game shutout and only allowed a total of three base runners. It was the first complete game shutout thrown by a Florida State pitcher since 2004. Compton had ten strikeouts and gave up two hits and no walks. The other runner reached on an error. He had excellent command today and his off speed pitches were fooling Maryland hitters even through their third time facing him.

Florida State was held scoreless through the first three innings, but exploded in the fourth with six runs. John Nogowski had two RBIs and John Sansone, Ben DeLuzio, Josh Delph, Danny De La Calle, and D.J. Stewart all had one RBI. Stewart is again finding less and less pitches to hit as he walked twice more today and is now tied for the team lead with 17 walks through 14 games to go with an on base percentage of .552.

Florida State has two midweek games on Tuesday and Wednesday at Central Florida. The Tuesday game starts at 6:30 PM and the Wednesday game at 4 PM.
