FSU Blanks Eagles to Open Series

The opening matinee game of a 3-game series began in Chestnut Hill on Friday, but it was Florida State’s Mike Compton who stole the show as FSU beat Boston College, 3-0.

With the win, Compton improved to 4-1 on the season while the Seminoles moved to 19-6 for the year and an ACC-best 7-1 in conference play.

The Good: The pitching for both teams was pretty good on Friday, but for FSU, it was downright dominant. After Compton allowed just three hits and three walks in five shutout innings, Jim Voyles and Tyler Warmoth combined to throw four no-hit innings.

The Bad: Both teams passed up a couple scoring opportunities early on. The teams combined to leave 13 men on base, which isn’t a lot, but almost all of them were in the first five innings.

The Ugly: Boston College managed just three hits throughout the day on Friday and only one over the final five innings.

Studs of the Game: Friday’s contest was all about pitching. While Compton, Voyles and Warmoth performed admirably for the Seminoles, starter Mike King was pretty good for the Eagles, allowing just two earned runs in 8 1/3 innings. At the plate for FSU, Jackson Lueck was 3-for-4 with a run scored.

Duds of the Game: There was plenty of duds to be found throughout both lineups. Only three Eagles managed a hit while John Sansone and Cal Raleigh were each uncharacteristically 0-for-4.
