Miami-FSU: Miami wins one of three, 7-1

By Denis Brown - April 29, 2007

With the win, Miami improves to 27-19 and 12-12 in ACC. With the loss, Florida State drops to 39-7 and 17-4 in the ACC.

Miami got a great start out of Eric Erickson getting 6 innings of work and he only gave up one run.

Erickson is Miami most talented starter and gives Miami three great starters. It will be up to the bullpen as to whether Miami goes anywhere in the postseason.

FSU is an all around great team that got the job down. FSU came down and won two out of three on the road, against your blood rival. The coaches do not like each other in this rivalry and there is alot more bad blood in this baseball rival, then in the football rivalry between the two schools.

It will be disappointing for FSU Head Coach Mike Martin if he does not have a big year and at the very least go deep into Omaha.

Miami is just trying to extend its streak of consective postseason appearances. The Hurricanes should be alright, but Danny Gil is going to have to be a better closer as the 'Canes head into the postseason.

FSU has the talent to win it all and is clearly a better team then Miami. However, when the postseason comes, it is about who is hot and not always who is best.

The rivalry will pick up again, perhaps in the postseason?

Thanks for checking in with me this weekend and I hope I gave you a small taste of Miami/FSU baseball. It is something that is fun to be apart of.
