TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – No. 17 Florida State (26-18) and Clemson (23-21) are both looking to solidify their spots in the postseason this weekend when the team’s face off for a three-game series in Tallahassee. Friday’s game will air at 6:00 p.m. on ACC Network, while Saturday and Sunday’s games will stream on ACC Network Extra.
Fans can also listen on the radio in Tallahassee on 100.7 FM or nationwide through Tunein or the FSU Gameday App.
The three game series against the Tigers will be the final regular season home games for the Seminoles this year. Freshman Bryce Hubbart will make his first series-opening start of the year in place of ACC Pitcher of the Year frontrunner Parker Messick, who will miss his regularly-scheduled start. Hubbart ranks in Top 10 in the ACC in ERA, strikeouts (79) and opponent batting average (.201).
The last time FSU and Clemson played, the Seminoles swept the Tigers in Tallahassee. All-time, FSU is 79-69-1 against Clemson.
The Seminoles enter the weekend after a split against Florida Gulf Coast on Wednesday. After losing the first game on a ninth-inning solo home run, FSU won the nightcap 2-1 on Elijah Cabell’s walk-off home run.
Cabell’s home run was his 13th of the season and his first career walk-off hit. The sophomore is hitting .474 over his 10-game hitting streak, with five home runs.
Clemson won on Tuesday night against No. 25 South Carolina and is 15-15 in the ACC this year. The Tigers were swept last weekend against Georgia Tech, but had won seven straight games prior to that series, including a sweep of Louisville, the Cardinals first three-game sweep since joining the ACC in 2014.
Caden Grice, Clemson’s first baseman, leads the Tigers with a .321 batting average and 12 home runs. The two-time ACC Player of the Week hit four home runs against the Cardinals in Clemson’s series sweep.
