Here is your ACC Recap for April 13th.
#8 Florida State 3 #9 Florida 2
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – In a game that featured a bizarre turn of events even before the first pitch was thrown, sixth-ranked Florida State (26-7) did not allow a power outage to get the best of them on Tuesday night defeating seventh-ranked Florida (23-9) 3-2 on Mike Martin Field inside Dick Howser Stadium.
"To say that is a happy clubhouse is an understatement," said head coach Mike Martin. "There are a lot of baseball games played in this yard and that one was about as well played by both teams. You saw outstanding pitching on both sides."
In front of a packed crowd of 6,526, the largest crowd of the season and eighth largest crowd all-time, the Seminoles scored early and received an outstanding pitching performance from freshman Scott Sitz to notch their third victory over the Gators this year, while clinching the regular season series taking three out of four from UF.
#29 Virginia Tech 5 North Carolina A&T 1
BLACKSBURG, Va. – Timely hits by Michael Seaborn and Steve Domecus, and a costly error by North Carolina A&T, paved the way for No. 20 Virginia Tech’s 5-1 non-conference baseball victory over the Aggies Tuesday night at English Field. Tech improved its overall record to 24-11 with the win, while A&T fell to 12-20.
Seaborn broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the sixth inning when he laced a two-out single up the middle to score Ronnie Shaban from second base. Before the inning was done, Tech added three more runs, all unearned. The second run scored on a throwing error by Aggies’ first baseman Kelvin Freeman, while left fielder Domecus knocked in the last two with his second double, and fourth hit, of the game.

Davidson 4 Duke 2
CARY, N.C. – Sophomore right-hander Brian Russell allowed just one run on four hits in a career-high six innings, freshman shortstop Michael Zeblo drove in three runs, and the Davidson Wildcats turned a season-high four double plays to defeat the Duke Blue Devils, 4-2, in non-conference action Tuesday at the USA Baseball Complex.
Davidson (14-19) started the scoring in the second inning, as senior catcher Tommy Piacenza (1-for-4), Zeblo and sophomore left fielder Seth Freeman (1-for-4, RBI) put together three consecutive hits for a 3-0 lead. Zeblo, who led the Wildcats at the plate by batting 2-for-4 with three RBI, doubled in both junior designated hitter Will General (1-for-2) and Piacenza (1-for-4), and scored himself on the third straight hit, Freeman’s base hit to left center.
UMass 8 Boston College 4
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – The UMass baseball team pounded out 11 hits on its way to its third win in the past four games, downing Boston College, 8-4 on Tuesday afternoon at Shea Field. With the victory, the Minutemen move to 5-17 on the year, while the Eagles fall to 15-17.
After UMass went down in order in the first, Boston College got on the board as Robbie Anston drew a leadoff walk, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Matt Hamlet and came around to score on a single through the left side by John Spatola.
NC State 11 NC Central 0
RALEIGH, N.C. – Drew Poulk and Chris Diaz had three hits apiece, and four NC State pitchers combined on a three-hit shutout Tuesday night as NC State rolled past NC Central 11-0 at Doak Field at Dail Park.
NC State improved to 22-12 with the win, while NC Central fell to 1-32.
For the second time in as many meetings with the Eagles, the Wolfpack had to wait until the late innings to put the game away. Dallas Poulk led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo homer off the foul pole in right field, and Central starter Glenn Frye (1-7) retired 10 of the next 14 men he faced before yielding two more runs in the fifth on an RBI single by Diaz and run-scoring groundout by Pratt Maynard.
