Florida State defeated Stetson 8-6 on Wednesday night. Andrew Karp picked up his first win of the season.

The Seminoles got things going in the first with a Cal Raleigh RBI single to give the Seminoles a 1-0 lead. That 1-0 lead lasted until the fifth inning when Karp gave up an RBI groundout by Mike Spooner that tied the game at 1.

Dylan Busby got it right back with his second home run in as many games. John Sansone followed him up with a 2-RBI double to give the Seminoles a 4-1 lead.

Jim Voyles came in to replace Karp in the top of the sixth. Karp went 5 inning while giving up 1 run on 3 hits with no walks and 1 strikeout.

Florida State added two more runs in the seventh on back to back sacrifice flies by Matt Henderson and Taylor Walls to make it 6-1.

Jim Voyles was replaced by Alec Byrd in the eighth. Voyles gave up no runs on 1 hit with no walks and 1 strikeout in 2 innings. Byrd followed him up with a 1-2-3 eighth. 

Ben DeLuzio added to the Florida State lead in the eighth with a 2-RBI single to make it 8-1. 

Ed Voyles came in to close the game out in the ninth inning, but walked the first two batters and gave up an RBI double to make it 8-2. Voyles struck out the next two batters, but then gave up back to back singles which drove in two more runs. Taylor Walls committed a 2-run throwing error to cut the Florida State lead to just 8-6. Voyles got the last out of the game on the following batter.

Florida State improves to 25-11 overall, and remain 10-4 in the ACC. The Seminoles will host Notre Dame for a three game series starting Friday, April 22 at 6 PM.
