FSU Falls At Clemson 10-3

Florida State opened up their series with Clemson with a 10-3 loss.

Another subpar start for the Florida State pitching staff led to Clemson's 10-3 victory over the Seminoles. Mike Compton falls to 5-3 on the season, and now has a 4.53 ERA.

Neither team was able to get much done in the first three innings, but Clemson took a 3-0 lead in the fourth on a 3-run home run by Weston Wilson. The Seminoles bounced right back with three of their own in the top of the fifth. Jackson Lueck came through with an RBI single. Quincy Neiporte added an RBI single as well, and Dylan Busby capped off the scoring with a sacrifice fly to tie the game.

It wasn't tied for long with Clemson scoring three more runs in the bottom of the fifth to take a 6-3 lead. Florida State starter Mike Compton loaded the bases before being replaced by Chase Haney. Chris Okey came through for the Tigers with a 2-RBI double after a strikeout. Haney was pulled in favor of Matthew Kinney who walked in a run before the inning ended. Compton's fine line was 4 innings pitched with 6 runs on 5 hits and 1 hit by pitch.

After a rain delay, Freshman Seth Beer added on to the Clemson lead with an RBI-single in the seventh. The Tigers put the game out of reach with a 3-run home run by Okey in the eighth to make it 10-3. 

The Seminoles fall to 28-12 and 13-5 in the ACC. They will look to even the series against Clemson on Sunday at 1 PM.
