#8 Florida State 17 Wake Forest 16

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – What would an ACC game be without a little late inning rally? For the third time on the road in league play this year, seventh-ranked Florida State (25-7, 10-5 ACC) used a ninth inning rally to earn a win. This time the Seminoles scored three runs in the ninth and hung on for a 17-16 victory over Wake Forest (10-24, 2-13 ACC) on Sunday afternoon on Gene Hooks Field at Wake Forest Baseball Park.

"I just can’t tell you how proud I am of this baseball team," said head coach Mike Martin. "To be down by five runs at one time and to keep chipping away at the lead, we just kept fighting. I have just never been more proud of a group than I am this team right now. It was just a good win for us today."

Maryland 4 Boston College 2

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – With Maryland’s bullpen depleted after pitching 7 1/3 innings in Saturday’s doubleheader, starter Brett Harman knew he had to give the Terps seven to eight solid innings in order for them to win Sunday.

Harman broke his previous career high of 10 strikeouts and threw his first complete game since May 8, 2009 against Wake Forest.
