On Friday he completed seven innings while giving up no runs, no walks, and only three hits. In his last combined 13 innings, he has not given up any walks. In Tallahassee, Henry set a season high with striking out nine batters, one short of his career high. His moist impressive performance came very early on. In the bottom of the second, UNC tried to rally with two men on and no outs. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, Henry struck out the bottom of the order.
"I was able to get into a little bit of a rhythm because the defense played great behind me." Henry said. "Strikeouts are not really part of my game so I was more surprised than anyone about how many I had. I was really just able to find the strike zone and keep them off balanced tonight."
Prior to the match up with the Bulldogs, Henry was 1-0 with a 2.32 ERA. Most importantly he was the team leader with 11 strikeouts before his record breaking performance against the Bulldogs.
"Bryan had a good outing," Florida State baseball coach Mike Martin said. "He made pitches when he had to. We were just hoping that he continues to improve on his changeup and his curveball. Lets face it his fastball was located very well. When you face Bryan Henry, you know he is always going to be around the plate so they went up there swinging at a lot of first pitches. He really made some quality pitchers to get us out of some jams."
Now Henry must look ahead to next weekend's series against Minnesota while Florida State must prepare for the rematch tomorrow. The hopes of the Seminoles are now on the shoulders of pitcher Tyler Chambliss who so far this season is 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA.
