Closer Daniel Bennett made his 39th and earliest appearance of the season, entering the game with one out in fourth inning. The senior sidearm specialist worked a season-high 3.2 innings, eclipsing his previous high of 3.1 at Virginia on March 18. His 4 strikeouts matched a season high …senior Stuart Tapley belted his 7th home run of the season and third in two games. Tapley’s solo shot in the third was the 35th of his career and only the third surrendered by Texas A&M starter Michael Wacha in 118 innings this season … It was the seventh HR of the postseason for the `Noles, tying Georgia Tech for third among participating NCAA schools … Jayce Boyd extended his hitting streak to six games with a leadoff single through the left side in the seventh inning … The Seminoles wore their gold jerseys in back-to-back games for the first time and finished the season with an 8-3 record in the uniforms usually reserved for Sunday home dates … senior catcher Parker Brunelle singled in his last collegiate at-bat as a pinch-hitter in the ninth.
