TALLAHASSEE – Despite success at the plate, No. 5 Florida State (16-11, 6-6 ACC) was swept by No. 16 Notre Dame (16-5, 5-4) 9-7 at Dick Howser Stadium on Sunday.
LHP Ross Dunn (1-2) started for the Noles, pitching 5.0 innings with seven strikeouts. Relievers Jackson Nezuh and Connor Whittaker pitched the final four innings.
Aidan Tyrell (4-0) pitched 4.2 innings in relief for Notre Dame, allowing one unearned run.
Behind Logan Lacey’s team-high three hits, FSU out-hit the Irish for the second straight game. Tyler Martin and Colton Vincent both had a pair of hits. Jordan Carrion stole two bases for the Seminoles.
After Notre Dame hit a three-run home run in the first inning, FSU immediately responded and tied the game through one inning. The Irish hit a two-run home run off Dunn in the third inning and added two runs in the sixth and eighth innings as well.
FSU cut the deficit to 9-7 with three runs in the bottom of the eighth, but a fly out ended Florida State’s final threat. FSU was retired in order in the bottom of the ninth by Jack Brannigan for his first save of the year.
