“We had exceptional pitching performances from Andrew Karp,” head coach Mike Martin said. “He pitched beautifully. Just dominated the other club. CJ Van Eyk gave us exactly what we need, which was five good innings.
“The big thing about today – we got after it, played hard, played the game right. Always difficult to win two ball games. Now we have to come out tomorrow and play well.”
Andrew Karp struck out 10 batters and allowed just two hits in his second complete game of the year as FSU beat Mount St. Mary’s 10-0 in game one. Jackson Lueck and Cal Raleigh each hit two-run home runs, and freshman Reese Albert was the only Seminole with two hits and added a career-high three RBI.
FSU drew nine walks and added five extra base hits. In Friday’s opener, nine of FSU’s 11 hits went for extra bases.
