Florida State (46-18) was not going to make it easy on Texas A&M (46-20) in this series and they proved it by beating the Aggies 23-9 Sunday afternoon in Tallahassee, forcing a game three on Monday.
Texas A&M used five different pitchers on Sunday, none of them went at least three innings, and they all gave up at least three earned runs. As a staff they walked 12 Seminole hitters in total on the day.
Florida State scored more than one run in six of the nine innings on the day, including a five-spot in the first and a seven-spot in the eighth inning. Ten different Seminoles scored runs in this game, led by Stuart Tapley who went 3-4 on the day with two home runs and six RBI's and two runs scored. Justin Gonzalez also had a fine day at the plate going 2-3 with a home run, three runs scored, six RBI's and two walks for Florida State.
Florida State pitcher Mack Waugh was the only pitcher of the eight used in the game by both teams combined that didn't give up a run. He went three innings, giving up three hits and had four strikeouts, but most importantly no walks.
These two teams square off in game three on Monday with the winner heading to Omaha for the College World Series and a shot at a National Championship.
