BASEBALL RECAP: Florida State 12, Stony Brook 2By The Sports Xchange | The SportsXchange – Sun, Jun 17, 2012 10:08 PM EDT
Florida State took advantage of a third-inning error to blow open a close game and defeat Stony Brook 12-2 in a College World Series elimination game Sunday at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Neb. Florida State (49-16) had a 1-0 lead with two outs and nobody on base in the top of the third when Sherman Johnson, Devon Travis and James Ramsey had consecutive hits to ignite a six-run inning. Johnson scored on Ramsey's double for a 2-0 lead, and then shortstop Cole Pergaine's throwing error allowed two more runs to score. Stephen McGree drew a walk, and Justin Gonzalez delivered a 1-0 pitch into the left-field bullpen for a three-run homer and 7-0 lead. Travis added a two-run home run in the fourth inning, chasing starting pitcher Brandon McNitt and putting Florida State ahead 9-0. That was more than enough run support for starting and winning pitcher Mike Compton, who allowed six hits and two runs, walked two and struck out four in six innings. Travis finished 3-for-3 with two walks, three RBIs and three runs scored. Florida State scored its first nine runs with two outs. Kevin Courtney doubled and scored, and William Carmona doubled, singled and drove in a run for Stony Brook. The Seawolves (52-15) finished their first-ever CWS appearance with an 0-2 record.
