⚾️: Noles Fall Sunday after Clinching Series at No. 8 TCU

FORT WORTH, Texas – Florida State dropped its first game of 2023, falling 3-2 at Lupton Stadium against No. 8 TCU Sunday afternoon. The Seminoles had clinched the series Saturday after scoring 10 runs each of the first two games vs. the Horned Frogs.

FSU scored two runs in the first inning on a James Tibbs III single, followed by a hit by pitch and three walks. The Noles were held to two hits in the contest.

TCU got a run in the fourth inning against Carson Montgomery, but the Seminoles got out of trouble in the fifth and sixth inning with inning-ending double plays. FSU had the chance to avoid trouble in the seventh as well, but TCU tied the game with a one-out RBI single and took the lead on a botched double play.
