The second two games of the series will be televised live on Sun at 7 p.m. and 1 p.m. respectively.

The projected pitching matchups are as follows:

Friday: LHP Scott Maine (3-5, 3.43 ERA) vs. RHP Bryan Henry (10-0, 2.24 ERA)
Saturday: RHP Enrique Garcia (4-2, 2.67 ERA) vs. RHP Ryan Strauss (8-1, 2.98 ERA)
Sunday: LHP Eric Erickson (5-3, 2.29 ERA) vs. TBA

Miami coach Jim Morris believes Florida State has their best team in the last 15 years.

"They are very solid, they know how to play the game, they are a veteran team, and they can pitch," Morris said.

While Morris will give FSU credit, he was quick to point our FSU's strength of schedule.

"They are hitting .364 as a team and we don't have any of our players hitting .365," Morris said. "But we have played a much tougher schedule than they have and that plays into it."


University of Miami athletic department officials have announced that general admission and reserved seat tickets for this weekend's baseball series against No. 1 Florida State are sold out. The teams will meet at Mark Light Field Friday night at 7 p.m., Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 12 p.m.

If available, standing room only tickets will be sold for $5 the day of each game after the first pitch. Those tickets will give fans access to areas down the left field and right field lines.
