TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The Virginia Cavaliers (31-15, 10-12 ACC) dropped the third and final contest of a three-game Atlantic Coast Conference series to the Florida State Seminoles (37-14, 12-9 ACC) by the score of 7-2 at FSU's Dick Howser Stadium. The contest was the second game of a doubleheader (UVa won game one 6-2). Florida State broke a 2-2 tie game in the bottom of the seventh inning by scoring five runs to claim the series two games to one.
Virginia scored the first run of the ballgame and took a 1-0 lead in the top of the third inning when Matt Street hit a towering solo home run. Street's home run, his fourth of the season, hit the Dick Howser Stadium nameplate on top of the videoboard/scoreboard tower in left field.
In the bottom of the fourth inning, Florida State tied the game at 1-1 when Shane Robinson walked to lead off the side before he scored a run three batters later on a RBI sacrifice bunt by Aaron Cheesman.
The Cavaliers tallied another run regained the lead at 2-1 in the top of the sixth inning. UVa's Ryan Zimmerman got things started when he doubled off the right field wall before Sean Doolittle singled to first base to put runners on the corners. One batter later, Zimmerman scored on a RBI-single through the right side by Brandon Guyer to give Virginia a one-run lead.
The Seminoles tied the game for the second time in the contest when Florida State made it a 2-2 ballgame when Robinson led off the side with a single through the left side and scored two batters later on a RBI sacrifice fly to right-center field by Gibbs Chapman. FSU's run was manufactured when Robinson singled, stole second base and was awarded third base on a balk before Chapman's sacrifice fly.
Florida State took its first lead of the game in the bottom of the seventh inning and made it a 7-2 ballgame by plating five runs in the side. The Seminoles made it a 4-2 ballgame when Jack Rye's two-run RBI-single scored Ryne Jernigan (walk) and Brant Peacher (double) before Ryne Malone launched a three-run home run over the right field wall three batters later that also scored teammates Rye and Robinson (single) on the play.
UVa starting pitcher Jeff Kamrath went 6.0 strong innings and allowed two runs on three hits and struck out six batters in a no-decision. The Cavaliers Casey Lambert (1-3) took the loss after going 2.0 innings and allowed five runs on five hits and struck out one batter.
The Seminoles' Kevin Lynch (7-0) picked up the win after going 3.0 scoreless innings and allowed just one hit while striking out five batters. FSU starting pitcher Michael Hyde went 5.0 innings and allowed two runs on six hits and struck out one batter in a no-decision.
UVa will return to home action on Tuesday, May 3rd when Virginia plays its final contest before the Cavaliers' final exam break against the Richmond Spiders in a non-conference game at 7:00 PM at Davenport Field at the UVa Baseball Stadium. The contest is Virginia's final non-conference home game of the season.
