TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State baseball team embarks on its second ACC trip of the season this weekend. The Seminoles (18-6, 6-1 ACC) head to Boston College (14-9, 3-6 ACC) for a three-game series that is set to begin at 2:30 p.m. on Friday. Florida State has won its last nine straight against Boston College and looks to begin a new winning streak after a one-run setback to in-state rival Florida halted a three-game winning streak Tuesday.
FSU’s nine-game win streak versus the Eagles is the second-longest in the 31 all-time meetings between the two programs.
Florida State head coach Mike Martin will send right hander Mike Compton (3-1, 4.02 ERA) to the mound on Friday as the Seminoles look to remain in first in the ACC Atlantic Division standings. Compton, making his fourth career start against the Eagles, is slated to meet fellow right hander Mike King (4-1, 2.82).
Saturday’s game, set to start at 1:30 p.m., will feature the Seminoles’ Drew Carlton (4-1, 3.49 ERA) and Boston College lefty Jesse Adams (2-3, 5.54). It is the first time in his career that Carlton will face the Eagles.
The weekend closes with a Sunday matinee at 1 p.m., which pits Florida State freshman Cole Sands (3-2, 2.92 ERA) against fellow right hander Jacob Stevens (2-0, 0.53).
As a reminder, FSU has added a pair of midweek contests against Texas Tech on Tuesday, April 5 and Wednesday, April 6.
Both games against the Red Raiders are set to begin at 6 p.m. on Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.
