Late VT Outburst Dooms FSU in 8-3 Loss

The Florida State bullpen let down the Seminoles once again in the 8-3 loss to Virginia Tech.

Florida State played six innings of good baseball, but a seventh inning outburst from Virginia Tech doomed the Seminoles to an 8-3 loss. Virginia Tech started the game off with a lead off homerun in the first. The Seminoles responded with a run in the bottom of the first on a D.J. Stewart RBI single.

Florida State added a second run in the second when Danny De La Calle jacked a ball over the right field fence. Virginia Tech responded with a homerun in the top of the third to tie the game at two. Neither team was able to get much going through the sixth.

Biegalski gave up two singles to start the seventh before a Sac fly moved the runners over. A wild pitch allowed a run to score and head coach Mike Martin made the decision to pull him in favor of Dylan Silva.

Silva walked the first two batters he saw and then gave up a RBI single, an RBI Sac Fly, and a two-RBI double. When the smoke cleared Virginia Tech had scored five runs and taken a 7-2 lead. Boomer Biegalski went 6.1 innings while giving up four earned runs on seven hits and one walk. He struck out five.

Florida State would get one back in the eighth on an RBI double by Chris Marconcini, but Virginia Tech added another run in the top of the ninth with a bases loaded walk. The Seminoles would put a runner on base in the ninth, but never threatened.

The Seminoles fall to 20-7 on the season and 7-3 in the ACC. Drew Carlton will get the start in place of Mike Compton tomorrow at 6 PM with the Noles looking to avenge tonights loss.
