⚾: Irish Top Noles With Ninth-Inning Rally

TALLAHASSEE – No. 5 Florida State (16-10, 6-5 ACC) dropped its first weekend series of the year with a 5-4 loss to No. 16 Notre Dame (15-5, 4-4) at Dick Howser Stadium.

Saturday’s game started four hours late due to a weather delay.

Florida State out-hit the Irish, 7-5, and scored three runs in the seventh inning to take a 4-2 lead. Colton Vincent, the only Seminole with multiple hits in the game, lined a two-out, two-strike, two-run single up the middle for the lead. Vincent has a hit in nine of his last 10 games.

Notre Dame scored a run in the eighth inning to cut into the deficit before Jared Miller bounced a two-out chopper up the middle to plate a pair of runs in the ninth inning.

Starting pitcher Bryce Hubbart lasted just 3.1 innings for Florida State, but Jackson Baumeister followed with 3.2 innings without allowing a hit. Baumeister’s five strikeouts were a career high, and the only Irish batter to reach was on a walk.

Wyatt Crowell, Davis Hare and Scolaro each gave up a run over the final two innings.

Batting in the leadoff spot, freshman Jaime Ferrer reached base four times – twice via hit by pitch, a single and a walk.

Carter Putz had three of Notre Dame’s five hits. Roman Kimball (2-0) earned the win with 2.0 hitless innings.
