Florida State rallied from a 3-0 deficit to knock off Stetson 5-4 in 12 innings Wednesday night. Carson Montgomery set a career-high with 13 strikeouts, and Jackson Greene hit a pinch-hit, two-run home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to force extra innings.

Jordan Carrion singled home Brett Roberts for the walk-off win, FSU’s third of the year.

Last season against Georgia Tech, the Seminoles won the first two games of the series. Messick, the reigning ACC Pitcher of the Year, threw 6.0 innings in a 9-0 win, FSU’s first shutout of the Yellow Jackets since 2000 and the first in Atlanta since 1985.

This is FSU’s third consecutive trip to play at Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets last played in Tallahassee in 2016.

Of Note:

  • Florida State has used four starting pitchers this season, and all four have at least one 13-strikeout game. No other player in the ACC has done it once this year. Carson Montgomery set a career high with 13 on Wednesday against Stetson.
  • As a team, FSU struck out Stetson 25 times, the second-most in school history, just one behind the 26 NC State batters FSU K’d last month in a 17-inning game.
  • FSU leads the country with 371 strikeouts from its pitchers, 32 more than No. 2 Mississippi State.
  • This week, Messick was named a D1Baseball Midseason All-American and is one of 45 players on the Golden Spikes Award midseason watch list.
  • FSU’s three walk-off wins this season have come from first-year Seminoles – James Tibbs’ single vs. Cal, Jaime Ferrer’s home run vs. NC State and Carrion’s single against Stetson.
  • After Georgia Tech, Florida State hosts Florida on 7:00 p.m. Tuesday at Dick Howser Stadium.
