TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – No. 6 Florida State (22-7) is looking for its fifth straight win against Jacksonville (18-10) when the teams face off Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m. on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.
Andrew Karp and Jonah Scolaro combined for a four-hit shutout against the Dolphins when the teams met earlier this season. It is FSU’s only shutout of the year. Karp had a career-high 12 strikeouts in the game and Scolaro picked up his first of three saves on the season.

The Seminoles are coming off a series win over No. 18 Louisville, winning the first two games of the series. Catcher Jonathan Foster hit a walk-off, two-run home run in Saturday’s 8-7 victory. It was the first walk-off home run with FSU losing a game since Mike McGee against Miami in 2010.
The Seminoles are pairing with the Florida State University Black Student Union for a Negro Leagues Appreciation Game against the Dolphins. Fred Flowers, the first African-American student-athlete at Florida State and a part of the baseball team in 1965, will throw out the first pitch. The Seminoles will wear hats recognizing the Negro Leagues Museum in Kansas City, Mo.
MARTIN CLOSING IN ON RECORD
Head coach Mike Martin is just 10 wins away from becoming college baseball’s winningest coach. Martin is 1,966-700-4 over 39 seasons at Florida State and trails the late Augie Garrido (1,975) for the most in NCAA history. Martin’s .738 career winning percentage is the best among active coaches.
Garrido passed away March 15, leading Martin to say, “College baseball and the world lost one of the finest men in our coaching profession. Augie dedicated his life to making young men better people. He will be deeply missed by myself and many others.”
