Florida State 15 Florida International 5
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State (35-12) scored early and often Wednesday night in cruising to a 15-5 victory over Florida International (30-19) on Mike Martin Field inside Dick Howser Stadium. The Seminoles tallied 11 runs in the first three innings as every FSU starter registered a hit as it was the first meeting between the two schools since 1991. The victory pushed the Seminoles’ win streak to a nation-best 14 games.
Tommy Oravetz followed Tuesday night’s three-hit performance against Jacksonville with another three hits Wednesday night to lead the Seminole offense which finished with 16 hits. The Tallahassee, Fla., native registered hits in his first three at-bats posting an RBI single in the first, a solo shot in the second and a double off the fence in right in the fourth. Oravetz finished the game 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored. He has now hit three home runs in his last two games and his five home runs in 2009 equals his career total from his first three seasons combined.

With the win, the Terrapins (24-26) won their 10th straight non-conference game and remained unbeaten against in-state teams this season, sweeping the season series from the Tigers (25-22) in the process.
Scott Swinson got the start on the mound for the Terps, his second midweek start of the year, and the Tigers notched a pair of runs off Maryland’s ace in the top of the first inning. Third baseman Steve Yarsinsky drove in a run with a double and Austin Harclerode added a sacrifice fly.
Virginia Tech 11 Davidson 5 (8 innings)
DAVIDSON, N.C. – The Virginia Tech baseball team used four home runs – including the first of catcher Chris Kay’s career – to defeat host Davidson College 11-5 on Wednesday night in non-conference action at Wilson Field.
First pitch of the contest was delayed by nearly an hour due to lightning, and the game ended up being called after eight innings due to more of the same.

Left fielder Klint Reed paced the Hokie attack with a career-high four hits, while right fielder Mike Kaminski went 3-for-5 with three runs scored and one of those round-trippers. Second baseman Michael Seaborn and designated hitter Anthony Sosnoskie hit the other two bombs for the Hokies.
