Miami-FSU: Final Thoughts of the Night

By Denis Brown - April 28, 2007

Florida State is just better, that is what everyone that has watched the last two games thinks.

I was able to talk to FSU catcher Buster Posey after the game and he felt the turning point of the game was when UM DH Jemile Weeks walked and went to third after Mark Sobolewski singled to rightfield, which was the hit that extended Sobolewski's hitting streak to 16 games.

The play that changed the game was when Miami third basemen Gus Menendez grounded to third, Jason Stidham threw to second for FSU to get the force out and Weeks broke for home. The throw was made to home and Posey blocked the plate and tagged Weeks after he missed home plate. This double play killed a third inning rally when the 'Canes were only down a run.

Danny Rosen (1-0 3.28) a junior righty will start for FSU tomorrow. This will be his first start of the season against Eric Erickson (5-3, 2.29).

Game starts at noon. Miami will try to avoid being swept. UM is already under .500 in ACC play and this game means so much more to Miami then FSU at this point. Miami is a bubble team.
