Tallahassee, FL – Tuesday night’s game between the eighth-ranked Seminole baseball team and Jacksonville University has been rescheduled due to weather. The game will be made up Wednesday night at 6:00 p.m. at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville. FSU comes into Wednesday night’s game after a three-game sweep of Virginia Tech that raised the team’s record to 24-4. The Dolphins lost two of three to Georgia State and are now 13-11 on the season.
Hunter Jones (3-0) is still scheduled to throw for the Seminoles who will leave for Durham, NC straight after Wednesday night’s game. The Dolphins will go with staff ace Kyle DeVries (4-1). This will be the first of four meetings between the teams.
The last time the Seminoles met JU was in 2004 on a Tuesday in Jacksonville where the Seminoles won 15-4. That victory helped FSU run their current win streak versus JU to nine straight and 29 of the last 30. The Seminoles also have a four game win streak in games played in Jacksonville but this will be the first ever meeting between the teams at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville. In all four of those wins in Jacksonville the Seminoles scored in double digits. FSU leads the all-time series 99-30 and 33-21 in games played in Jacksonville. Florida State has recorded 12 shutouts in the series with three of those coming in games played in Jacksonville.
The game is the first of four scheduled meetings between the teams this season. Game Tracker will be available for the contest along with Steve Melewski’s live radio broadcast available on WFLA locally and on the Internet at seminoles.com.
