BRIGHTON, MASS. – Florida State (28-17, 13-11) won its second road series of the year with an 8-1 win over Boston College (19-30, 5-22) Sunday afternoon at Harrington Athletics Village. The Noles have won all nine road series against the Eagles since BC joined the ACC for the 2006 season.

The Seminoles scored all eight runs in the first three innings, highlighted a six-run third. FSU sent 11 batters to the plate, with six hits, a walk and a hit batter in the frame.
Florida State had eight consecutive batters reach base in the third – James Tibbs was hit by a pitch, followed by singles from Jaime Ferrer, Reese Albert, Brett Roberts, Alex Toral and Jackson Greene. After Colton Vincent walked, Tyler Martin singled to make the score 7-0. Jordan Carrion followed with a sacrifice fly for what proved to be FSU’s final run of the game.
