Florida State 8
N.C. State 3

It was very hot today at NewBridge Bank Park and N.C. State led Florida State early 3-2, before the FSU Seminoles went a rampage and the ‘Noles went on to win the Championship game, 8-3, over the N.C. State Wolfpack….(Out-scoring N.C. State 6-0, ther rest of the way.)

There was a very close play at the plate in Saturday night’s game and the N.C. State runner was called out and he was in actuality safe, but today there was a play at the plate, where the Florida State runner was safe and the N.C. State catcher was out, OUT COLD……

The ‘Noles hit the ball to right field and the throw comes in to the plate up the line just a bit and the ball sails past the Wolfpack catcher, but the Flordia State baserunner barrelling in from third, collides with the N.C. State catcher in a major mashup at the plate and as the Florida State runner scores, he also scores a knockout blow, on the Pack catcher, and N.C. State’s catcher is OUT COLD at the plate…

Tim Vangel and Jake Holloway from the Greensboro Grasshoppers’ staff spring iinto action, and get the Wolfpack kid stabilized and that is just what Tim and the EMT’s were able to do, as Jake and his crew helped make sure that other Emergency Medical Technicians and the EMS vehicle could make it’s way on to the fiield and in a few minutes, that is what was able to take place and the kid from N.C. State was on his way to the Moses Cone Hospital, just five minutes away from NewBridge Bank Park….

With the win today, Florida State should host Round One NCAA Tournament action next weekend and N.C. State should be in the field after this week’s strong showing at the ACC Baseball Tournament at Greensboro’s NewBridge Bank Park….

Today’s announced attendance was well over 6,000 and that broke the all-time Championship Game record for attendance…..

Again it was Florida State over N.C. State, 8-3 and we will have more on the tournament coming your way over the weekend….

    Andy the account above is very generous in regards to the cheapshop that happened today. The catcher was nowhere near the ball. I was behind the Florida State dugout and I saw the play. That kid should have been ejected but this goes to the low class thugs and classless program that Florida State brings to every athletic event. PLEASE SEC take Florida State!

    The Wolfpack simply ran out of gas. Two games yesterday, one that lasted into the morning hours gave the advantage to Florida State. They do not deserve a championship. They deserve to be booted from the ACC.

    I too was behind the FSU dugout about even with 3rd base and I have to disagree with sefan, violent yes but dirty no. Catcher is up the line and in the line without the ball, tough but clean baseball play. Not a fan of either team but I thought it was a well played game by both teams and a great representation of ACC baseball.
