Miami-FSU: A grand sixth

By Denis Brown - April 28, 2007

A nail in the coffin?

FSU catcherBuster Posey just hit a 366 foot home run to the 365 foot part of the park in right centerfield. FSU now holds a 9-4 lead in the sixth. This game is all but over, Head Coach Jim Morris sat down David Gutierrez who is one of Miami's better relievers in favor of John Housey. Neither saw action because the current reliever Alex Koronis worked out of the top of the inning.

The bullpen matchups simply do not favor Miami. FSU has the better all around bullpen and Miami simply does not have many dependable arms to go to. UM doesn't have a true closer and have overused the decent pitchers that they do have in the bullpen.

Florida State is a number one team in the nation and they may well sweep this weekend rivalry if Miami does not get anything going later today or tomorrow. FSU looks like the better team though, good teams don't beat themselves and this is why the Hurricanes aren't playing like a good team.

Miami just gets an RBI double by Roger Tomas... maybe a sign of life with Yonder Alonso coming up?
