LAST WEEK vs. NOTRE DAME
Florida State won its second ACC series of the season, taking two of three games against Notre Dame. The Seminoles and Fighting Irish split a doubleheader Saturday and FSU won the rubber match, 3-1 in 10 innings.
Drew Parrish struck out nine batters over six innings in FSU’s 7-1 win to open the series. Shane Drohan, Conor Grady and J.C. Flowers combined to allow just one hit over 10 innings on Sunday. The Seminoles and Duke are the only teams in the country this season to record a no-hitter and a one-hitter.
Flowers earned his fifth save of the season.
FSU HITTERS HUNGRY
Florida State ranks fifth nationally with 36 home runs and the Seminoles join Indiana as the only teams in the country to have four hitters with at least five home runs. Junior Drew Mendoza leads FSU with eight home runs, including a moon shot at Notre Dame. Freshman Elijah Cabell has six home runs, with his latest coming to straightaway center field against the Irish.
Cooper Swanson and J.C. Flowers each have five home runs in 2019. Both players had just two home runs in their careers entering this season.
MARTIN REACHES 2,000 WINS
Head coach Mike Martin, the winningest coach in college baseball history, reached another milestone on March 9 with his 2,000th career win in FSU’s 5-2 victory over Virginia Tech. His career record of 2,004-720-4 and .735 winning percentage are the best among active coaches.
Last season, Martin passed the late Augie Garrido for the most wins in college baseball history. Florida State and Martin announced last June that 2019 would be the legendary coach’s 40th and final season leading the Noles.
NOLES IN THE POLLS
Florida State ranks between 19th and 22nd in all six major polls this week. The Seminoles split a pair of midweek games against UCF and FIU before winning the weekend series at Notre Dame.
Florida State hosts Jacksonville April 2 at Dick Howser Stadium. The first scheduled game between the teams was rained out in Jacksonville on February 19.
All three games will stream live on the ACC Network Extra. Fans can listen to Eric Luallen in Tallahassee on the radio at 106.1 FM or nationwide on the FSU Gameday App.
