JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jacksonville led No. 13 Florida State by a run in the sixth
inning thanks to a pair of home runs and three RBI by sophomore Donald
Brickle (Jacksonville/Arlington Country Day), but the Seminoles scored 13
runs in the final four innings to take a 15-4 victory Wednesday night at
Alexander Brest Field. JU held a 3-2 lead in the top of the sixth, but a five-run inning by the Seminoles turned the tide in Florida State’s favor.
Dolphin sophomore starter Kyle DeVries (Holland, Mich.) (2-5) recorded the
loss, pitching 5.1 innings while allowing six runs, one of them earned, and
striking out four. Seminole reliever Frank Radziwon (1-0) picked up his
first win of the season, throwing 1.2 innings and fanning four.
Brickle hit a two-run homer in his first at-bat of the game to put the
Dolphins up, 2-1 in the first and added his second blast of the night in the
third to give JU a 3-1 lead. Florida State added another run on a
bases-loaded error in the fifth to close the gap, 3-2, before the fateful
Freshman Daniel Murphy (Jacksonville/Englewood) went 3-for-4 with a run,
while senior Orlando Diaz (Downers Grove, Ill.) had a pair of hits and one
RBI. Senior Larry Best-Berfet (Newark, N.J.) had a hit and a run scored to
go along with his team-leading 25th stolen base of the season.
