Ross Obley/FSU athletics

For the second straight day, Clemson fans sat and watched a laugher, but on Sunday, it was Florida State who came out victorious, 11-2.

Starting pitcher Drew Carlton worked 7 1/3 solid innings, allowing just two runs while the FSU offense knocked out 13 hits and scored 11 runs. The rubber game of the series will take place on Monday night at 7 p.m. and will be aired on ESPNU.

The Good: Florida State not only had 13 hits, but every spot in the batting order had at least one. The Seminoles were also solid in the field, committing no errors. This, after FSU committed four on Saturday. Carlton’s quality start also allowed the bullpen to get some much-needed rest.

The Bad: After going 6-for-14 with runners in scoring position on Saturday, Clemson was just 3-for-13 on Sunday. The Tigers also committed two errors in the field, allowing three unearned runs for the Seminoles.

The Ugly: The final four spots in the Clemson order, or the No. 6-9 hitters were a combined 1-for-13 at the plate.

Studs of the Game: Carlton was great on the mound, but Taylor Walls and Ben DeLuzio each finished the day with three RBIs. Walls had three hits and DeLuzio scored twice. John Sansone also added a home run. Clemson’s Reed Rohlman was 2-for-4 with a pair of RBIs.

Duds of the Game: After each homering on Saturday, Clemson’s Weston Wilson and Chris Okey were each 0-for-4 on Sunday.
