FSU Completes Sweep of Maine with 9-1 Victory

FSU athletics

Through six innings, Florida State had just one hit before blowing things open on Sunday with a 7-run seventh inning to complete the 4-game sweep of Maine, 9-1.

Until the bottom of the seventh, FSU had just a 2-run double from Elijah Cabell as it clung to a 2-1 lead. The Seminoles were able to double the lead on a bases loaded walk to Matheu Nelson before J.C. Flowers delivered a 2-run single up the middle to push the lead to 5-1.

After Drew Mendoza extended the lead with an RBI single, Robby Martin put the exclamation point on the inning with a bases-clearing double that came just shy of being a grand slam. Six of the seven FSU (4-0) runs in the inning came with two outs.

Maine (0-4) was held scoreless until the sixth inning when Cody Pasic came through with an RBI single to score Joe Bramanti, who was originally called out. Replay ruled that Bramanti touched home before Nelson could apply the tag.

FSU starter Shane Drohan did not allow a hit in three innings of work while striking out seven hitters. Droah did walk four. Lefty Antonio Velez got the win for the Seminoles, allowing just an unearned run on three hits in four innings of work. Nick Silva took the loss for Maine after allowing two runs in the first — his only inning of work.

FSU will play its first road game of the season on Tuesday as it makes the short trip to Jacksonville.
