TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Game one of a three game series featuring fourth-ranked Florida State (31-10) and Le Moyne (24-23) was suspended after five innings of play Friday night due to rain and poor field conditions.
Game one will resume on Saturday, May 1 at 3:00 p.m. with the Dolphins leading the Seminoles 3-1. Game two will begin 45 minutes after the completion of game one.
Fans holding tickets for games 1 and 2 of the series will be honored at the stadium for both games on Saturday.
Friday night recap (through 5 innings):
Both teams were held scoreless through the first three innings in game one. The Seminoles left five runners on during that span including two runners in both the first and second innings. FSU had runners at second and third and only one out in the second but could not push a run across as Le Moyne starter Cory Nelson got Parker Brunelle to pop up to second and Tyler Holt to groundout to third.
FSU starter Sean Gilmartin faced the minimum through the first three innings as the Dolphins’ first hit came off the bat of Ryan Mahoney with one out in the third. He would be eliminated from the base paths as Brunelle threw him out trying to steal second on a ball in the dirt.
Le Moyne struck first on Friday night scoring three runs in the top of the fourth to take a 3-0 lead. Matt Marra accounted for the first run of the game dropping a bloop single to right scoring Zach Wiley from third after he led off the inning with a single to center. On the very next pitch, the Dolphins pushed their lead to three as Chris Edmondson connected on a two-run shot to left for his team leading 10th home run of the season.
The Seminoles once again got runners on base after singles by Sherman Johnson and James Ramsey but could not crack the scoreboard as Nelson got Brunelle swinging on strikes for the third out of the inning.
Florida State finally broke through with a run in the bottom of the fifth before play was halted. Holt dropped a single just inside the right field foul line and scored all the way from first as Mike McGee laced a double off the wall in centerfield.
