The Florida St. Seminoles are one win away from moving on to the College World Series in the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament. They embarrassed the Stanford Cardinal and ace pitcher Mark Appel on Friday evening with a 17-1 victory.
The Seminoles return to the mound on Saturday with freshman Mike Compton (11-2, 2.78 ERA) ready to book that trip to Omaha, Neb. Offensively, James Ramsey moved ahead of Jace Boyd on Friday for the team lead in batting average (.390 to .389) and is now tied with Boyd at 57 RBI.
Stanford turns to Brett Mooneyham, a lefty starter selected by the Washington Nationals in the third round of the 2012 MLB Draft. He is 7-5 with a 4.26 ERA and 90 strikeouts this season.
