The Florida State Seminoles opened up on Friday night in their opening game of the Tallahassee Regional with a 2-1 win over UAB. In typical FSU post-season fashion, the game was much closer than it needed to be and had the Noles sweating in the ninth inning, as UAB had a man on third with two outs. FSU held on to advance, however.
FSU will be taking on a Samford team than took out Mississippi State with a 5-0 victory, shutting out the Bulldogs. Samford got a dominant game from pitcher Charles Basford, who pitched eight shutout innings and picked up the victory. Samford will face a much more stout lineup against Florida State, however.
Game Date/Time: Saturday, June 2, 7 p.m. ET
Venue: Dick Howser Stadium, Tallahassee, Florida
