Postgame Notes – Game One:
– Dylan Busby’s fourth inning home run was his fourth of the season and 27th of his career. All four home runs in 2017 have been with runners on base. Busby has hit a home run in all three ACC series this season. His four RBI tie a season high (Samford, 2/24).
– Cole Sands’ seven strikeouts tied his career high, which he accomplished in 5.2 innings last week at Virginia Tech. His 6.0 innings pitched tied a career-high done three times previously, including vs. Boston College this season.
– Cal Raleigh threw out Notre Dame’s first baserunner of the game, Cole Daily, trying to steal second base. On the season, Raleigh has thrown out six of 13 runners on steal attempts.
– The third inning ended with right fielder Nick Derr throwing out Jake Shepski at the plate, holding the Fighting Irish to just one run in the inning. It was just the second outfield assist for the Noles this season. The first came from Steven Wells against Samford on Feb. 24, when the right fielder double-up a Bulldog runner at second base.
– Quincy Nieporte entered the game with one double on the season, but hit two against the Fighting Irish.
– The win was FSU’s first ever at Notre Dame. The Seminoles lost all three games at Frank Eck Stadium in its first visit, in 2015.
Postgame Notes – Game Two:
– Quincy Nieporte’s single in the second inning extended his hitting streak to six, the longest active streak on the team.
– Taylor Walls walked four times in the game. He entered the weekend tied with teammate Tyler Daughtry for the national lead with 26 walks. The four walks tie a career high, done two other times, most recently on March 11 against Boston College.
– Freshman J.C. Flowers had four hits in the game, and was 5-for-7 in the doubleheader.
– It was the first extra-inning game for the Seminoles this season. FSU went 4-1 when playing extras in 2016.
