April 12, 1999
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State baseball team held on to their No. 1
ranking in all three polls following a 3-1 record this week. The Seminoles
defeated Jacksonville on Wednesday and took two of three in ACC play
against Clemson over the weekend. Saturday’s loss to the Tigers snapped a
21-game winning streak one short of the school record. FSU (36-4 overall,
14-1 ACC) has been ranked No. 1 in Baseball America for eight straight
weeks, and five straight weeks in both Baseball Weekly and Collegiate
Second baseman Marshall McDougall was named ACC Player of the Week
for the second time this season as he went 9-for-16 (.563) with four
doubles, five runs and three RBI in four games this week. McDougall, a
native of Varico, FL, also kept his 31-game hitting streak alive, which now
stands three shy of J.D. Drew’s school record 34. The junior leads the
conference in hits (72) and runs (63), is second in home runs (12) and RBI
(54), and is third in hitting (.419).
The Seminole baseball team travels to Jacksonville for one game
Wednesday (7:00 p.m.) before returning home for the weekend series against
Miami. The Friday and Saturday contests with Miami are scheduled for 7:00
p.m. with Sunday’s game starting at 1:00 p.m.
