DAY CENTRAL: Florida State Travels To Maryland For Weekend Series


Florida State ventures north to face Maryland in a three-game conference set beginning Friday, May 4. FSU leads the all-time series 48-3, including a 20-1 record in games played in College Park. The Seminoles enter this weekend's series winners of 27 straight games over the Terrapins including 19 consecutive victories on Maryland's home turf. The Terps last victory over Florida State came on March 26, 1998 in Tallahassee. Maryland defeated FSU 5-2 back on May 2, 1993 in the Terps' lone home win over the Seminoles. Florida State has won all 15 series against Maryland since joining the ACC in 1992. FSU's .941 winning percentage over Maryland is the second highest among ACC opponents trailing only Boston College, who the Seminoles have defeated in all six games since the Eagles joined the conference in 2006.


Maryland currently sits in sixth place in the Atlantic Division with a league mark of 7-17. The Terrapins moved back to .500 on the season with a 1-0 shutout over Towson on Tuesday. They faced Maryland Eastern Shore in a mid-week match-up on Wednesday. Maryland has lost six of its last seven games including five straight in ACC play. The Terps finish their regular season schedule at home with a pair of three-game sets against Florida State and North Carolina. Maryland is 13-8 overall at Shipley Field and 3-6 in league play. AJ Casario leads the team in batting with a .320 average, while Mike Murphy and Dan Melvin are tied for the team lead with five home runs. Roger Clemens Award Watch List candidate Brett Cecil heads up the Maryland pitching staff as he leads the team with five wins, eight saves and 53 strikeouts.


Jack Rye and Tony Thomas, Jr. are the only two players on the 2007 roster that has played in all six games against Maryland over the past two seasons. Rye is a career .316 (6-for-19) hitter against the Terrapins with a double, two runs scored and two RBI's. Thomas has also collected six career hits against Maryland.

On the mound, the Seminole pitching staff has posted an ERA of 2.67 the last two years. Bryan Henry is 2-0 as a starter throwing seven innings in each of his two starts. Michael Hyde and Brian Chambers are the only other pitchers on the current staff to have at least two appearances against Maryland. Luke Tucker earned two saves in as many appearances last year pitching a combined two innings of shutout baseball. He gave up just one hit and struck out two over those two innings of work.


Florida State is 17-4 in the ACC and has won all seven, three-game series to start the 2007 season. The series against Maryland is the fourth three-game set on the road for the Seminoles this season. FSU is 6-3 away from home in 2007 collecting series victories over Duke, NC State and Miami. The Seminoles have posted series sweeps against Wake Forest, Boston College and Virginia Tech. With the two victories over Miami last weekend, Florida State surpassed last year's ACC win total of 16. Since joining the league in 1992, FSU is the only team in the ACC to post 14 or more league wins in each of the last 16 seasons. The school record for the most ACC victories in a season is 22 set in 1999 that year the Seminoles finished league play at 22-2. The Seminoles lost at home for the first time in league play to North Carolina and now stand with a record of 11-1 in Dick Howser Stadium. FSU started a season 9-0 at home for the fifth time overall and for the first time since 2002. In 200 and 2002, the Seminoles went undefeated at home in conferece play posting a perfect 12-0 record. This year Florida State won its first seven conference games before falling at Duke in game two of the series. It was the Seminoles' best start in ACC play since 1999 when the Garnet and Gold started 13-0. Since joining the ACC in 1992, FSU started league play winning its first six games just three times.

FSU equipment bus involved in an accident

The Seminole baseball team flew up to Maryland and arrived on time around 1:00 pm today. The bus carrying the equipment was not so fortunate however.

On the way up to College Park, the bus carrying all of the Florida State baseball team's equipment was involved in an accident with a drunk driver. The car was in front of the bus swerving back and forth and wrecked, the bus was not able to stop in time and plowed right through the car. The bus driver is ok, the equipment is fine and got there a bit late on another bus obviously. The drunk driver did not survive the accident.
