May 9, 1999

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Second baseman Marshall McDougall hit an NCAA-record six home runs and had an NCAA-record 16 RBI as No. 4 Florida State (43-10, 19-2 ACC) rolled to a 26-2 victory over Maryland (21-26-1, 6-14 ACC) at Shipley Field.

McDougall was a perfect seven-for-seven on the day to finish the day with an Atlantic Coast Conference and FSU record 25 total bases. His seven hits are also an ACC and FSU record. He began his record-setting day with a single to left in the top of the first inning. He then hit a solo shot to left center in the second; a
three-run home run in the top of the fourth; a two-run home run to left in
the sixth; another three-run homer to center in the seventh; a grand slam in the eighth; and another three-run shot in the ninth. McDougall now has an ACC-leading 23 home runs on the season.

McDougall surpassed the former NCAA record of five home runs in a single game by Henry Rochelle of Campbell against Radford on March 30, 1985. His 16 RBI beat the former record of 14 by Jim LaFountain of Louisville against Western Kentucky on March 24, 1976.

The Seminoles hit nine home runs during the game. In addition to McDougall’s six home runs, Kevin Cash hit his 12th of the season in the third with no runners on; Ryan Barthemely hit his first of the season in the eighth with one runner on base and Sam Scott hit his eighth of the season with one runner on base.

Florida State tied its school-record for conference victories (19) with the three-game sweep of the Terps this weekend. The Seminoles last won 19 ACC games in 1996 when they finished 19-5. The ACC record for victories in a season in 20, set by Clemson in 1994 and 1995.

Right-handed pitcher Nick Stocks got the win and upped his record to 9-1. He pitched 4.0 innings and gave up two earned runs on four hits. He struck out two batters. A quartet of Seminole pitchers – Chris Chavez, Mike Smalley, Chris Widden and Mike DiBlasi – held the Terps scoreless over the last five innings.

Terp shortstop Casey Trout had three hits and scored one run on the day. Second baseman Jason Mohap and third baseman Ray Gemmill had two hits each.
