Here is your ACC Recap for March 2nd
#3 Florida State 10 #5 Florida 5
TAMPA, Fla. – A seven-run first inning proved to be the difference Tuesday night as No. 3 Florida State (7-0) defeated No. 5 Florida (5-1) 10-5 in the second game of the Florida Four Tournament on Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla. The game was the first of four meetings between these intra-state rivals.
With the 10 runs and 13 hits, the Seminoles have posted double-digits hits and runs in each of their first seven games to start the 2010 campaign. Dating back to last season, Florida State has registered double-digit hits in 12 consecutive games.
#10 Miami (FL) 15 South Florida 2
TAMPA, Fla. – Freshman left-hander Steven Ewing allowed just two runs in 6 1/3 innings in his first career start and Yasmani Grandal doubled three times as the 10th-ranked University of Miami baseball team cruised to a 15-2 win over USF Tuesday afternoon at George Steinbrenner Field.
For the fourth time in its first seven games, Miami (6-1) reached double digit runs – plating its second-highest run total of the season. The game, played at the spring training home of the New York Yankees, was the first of two games at the first annual Florida Four event, with the second game between Florida and Florida State to be held later Tuesday night.
VMI 7 Maryland 6 (11 innings)
COLLEGE PARK, Md. – What began as a pitcher’s duel ended nearly four hours later in wild fashion, as VMI won its seventh straight, 7-6 in 11 innings, over Maryland in non-conference baseball action Tuesday at Shipley Field.
With the win, VMI (7-0) continues its best-ever start with its first win over an ACC opponent since knocking off Virginia Tech, 8-7, on April 30, 2008. The last time VMI defeated an ACC team on the road also came against the Hokies back on April 27, 2005 a 6-2 victory in Blacksburg. The Terrapins, meanwhile, fall to 1-6 with the loss.
