Dolphins Complete Season Sweep of FSU

Jacksonville hammered Florida State for the second time this season on Tuesday night, winning at home over the Seminoles, 6-2.

FSU took the early lead, but the Dolphins put up 3-spots in both the second and fifth innings and the pitching staff did the rest. Jacksonville beat FSU at Dick Howser Stadium earlier in the season by a 7-3 score.

The Good: Against a potent FSU offense, Jacksonville starting pitcher Jeff Tanner shook off giving up a first inning run to throw six solid innings, allowing just the one run on six hits and three walks. The Dolphins also showed a lot of discipline at the plate, drawing seven walks to go with nine hits and striking out only twice.

The Bad: Florida State starter Andrew Karp had a tough night on the mound. Karp was pulled after loading the bases in the second inning with no one out and all three runs came in to score. Ed Voyles also had a bad inning, allowing three runs in the fifth.

The Ugly: Missed opportunities were the story for FSU offensively. The Seminoles left 11 men on base and hit into a pair of double plays.

Studs of the Game: While Tanner was good on the mound for the Dolphins, J.J. Gould and Parker Perez were solid at the plate. Gould was 3-for-3 with a run scored and Perez was 2-for-5 with a pair of RBIs. Taylor Walls and Cal Raleigh each had two hits for FSU.

Duds of the Game: Karp and Voyles had nights to forget on the mound for FSU while outfielder Donovan Petrey was 0-for-4 for at the plate.
