Florida State clinched another series on Saturday night with a 10-0 victory over Bowling Green. It took eight inning for the bats to wake up on Friday night, but the Seminoles scored early and often on Saturday.

Drew Carlton was outstanding on the mound in his six shutout innings for the Seminoles. FSU will go for the sweep at Dick Howser Stadium on Sunday.

The Good: There wasn’t much bad for Florida State on Saturday night. The Seminoles pitched a shutout, pounded out 13 hits and didn’t commit an error. FSU also left just six men on base for the night.

The Bad: While not much went wrong for FSU, not much went right for Bowling Green. The Falcons managed just six hits while giving up 13. Starting pitcher Zac Carey allowed nine runs, eight earned, on 10 hits while walking two in just four innings of work.

The Ugly: Making the fact that the Falcons couldn’t score all the more discouraging was that they had their chances. Bowling Green left 11 men on base and struck out 14 total times in the loss.

Studs of the Game: Carlton was outstanding on the mound for FSU. In his six innings, he allowed just five hits and one walk while striking out nine. Designated hitter Quincy Nieporte was 2-for-4 at the plate for the Seminoles with a home run, three RBIs and a pair of runs scored. Dylan Busby and Hank Truluck combined to go 4-for-8 with two runs and three RBIs. Outfielder R.J. Williams had three of Bowling Green’s six hits.

Duds of the Game: Zac Carey had the toughest of nights for Bowling Green. At the plate, Greg Basalyga and Kory Brown were each 0-for-3.
