⚾: FSU Falls to Notre Dame 5-3 in ACC Tournament

CHARLOTTE – Florida State (33-23) dropped the second pool play game in the ACC Tournament 5-3 to 5-seed Notre Dame (34-13) Thursday, finishing the Seminoles’ run in the conference tournament.

Notre Dame scored all five runs via three home runs against starter Parker Messick (6-5).

Messick did strike out four batters and now has 140 for the year, 10th-most in a season for a Seminole.

After a solo home run gave the Irish the lead, FSU responded with a Colton Vincent single that plated Alex Toral in the third inning.

Down 3-1 in the fourth, FSU threated with the bases loaded and no outs, but John Michael Bertrand (8-2) struck out two batters and forced a flyout to keep FSU off the board.

Trailing 5-1 in the ninth, FSU loaded the bases on a Brett Roberts’ double and two hit batters before Brock Mathis pinch hit and lined a two-run single off the left field wall. Tyler Martin followed with a high fly ball that ended the game at the warning track.
