    Tallahassee, FL — Florida State baseball held its pre-Garnet & Gold game scrimmage Thursday afternoon at Dick Howser Stadium. The game featured solid pitching and late inning heroics by Ryne Malone. The junior’s two-RBI double in the bottom of the eight brought the Garnet back from a 2-1 deficit and ended up being the difference in the 4-2 game. Three Seminoles collected multi-hit games and four different players recorded an RBI on a day that was mostly dominated by the pitching. No FSU pitcher allowed more than one earned run and the staff veterans combined to record 19 strike outs.

    Tyler Chambliss, Michael Hyde and Mark Sauls each recorded three K’s and neither of the two pitchers battling for the No. 1 spot gave up a run as Bryan Henry and Tyler Chambliss combined to allow just one hit and strike out four batters. Redshirt freshman Brian Kelley picked up the win.

    Outside of Malone’s big hit, the two players battling to start at first each had big days. Junior Ryan McArdle went 2-for-4 and Dennis Guinn went 2-for-3 with an RBI. High School All-American Buster Posey played error-free ball at short and also went 2-for-4 on top of picking up an RBI.

    Head Coach Mike Martin
    “I thought it was a very good scrimmage. Obviously the pitchers were ahead of the hitters. We haven’t spent a lot of time on offense this fall. We have been more focused on the fundamentals. We didn’t bunt the ball real well but we got a couple down when we needed to. It was a good evaluation tool and I am really excited about watching the young guys pitch tomorrow night.”

    Short Stop Buster Posey on his day and the race to start at short stop
    “I felt good today it was nice to get out there and play. Sean and I are both competing at the position and Sean is doing really well. Throughout the rest of the fall and the spring it is going to be a battle. I still think it is up in the air.”

    Pitcher Brian Kelley
    “I just tried to go out there and throw strikes and get ahead early. I didn’t do that as much as I would have liked but I was able to get some strikes and the defense made plays. It felt good. It is always great to get a W no matter what the game. It was cool.”

    First Baseman Dennis Guinn
    “It felt good to get a couple hits today. Last year the Garnet & Gold game didn’t go too good. This year it felt a lot better and I just want to end the fall on a good note.”

    First Baseman Ryan McArdle
    “That was my first time at the plate at Dick Howser. I have been waiting 20 years to get here. My dad was in the stands. He is FSU alumni and he played here. I felt good. My hands were quick and everything just worked out.”

    First Baseman Ryan McArdle on finally getting to play in Dick Howser Stadium
    “I have been dreaming about my first at bat and it couldn’t have been any better. I can’t wait for more to come.”


    Third Baseman Ryne Malone on his game-winning double in the eighth
    “It was a lot of fun to get out there. We have been practicing hard all fall and this is the culmination of that. The pitching was very good today. I was just fortunate to get a big hit in the end.”
