During the top of the fifth inning of the first game of the double header the bad blood between Florida State and Miami boiled over once again. With the Hurricanes leading 8-2, Miami's Randy Batista stole second and then attempted to score on a single to right field. Batista was easily thrown out at home plate, but took exception to Florida State catcher Bryan Bussey blocking the plate. Once both players were up Batista started yelling at Bussey and both benches cleared.
The coaches and umpires were able to get it under control quickly, and no one was ejected from the game.
