Ben Barrett’s Career Day Leads Noles

TALLAHASSEE, Florida – Led by freshman Ben Barrett’s 5-for-5 game – with two home runs and six RBI – No. 21 Florida State (12-6, 3-1 ACC) beat Boston College (12-3, 2-2) 19-8 Friday afternoon at Dick Howser Stadium. The Seminoles pounded out a season-high 21 hits and 19 runs; four Seminoles had at least three hits, and every starter scored at least one run (eight had two).

After an RBI single in the first inning, Barrett broke a 5-5 tie in the third inning on his first career home run. He doubled in the fifth inning before a grand slam in the sixth inning gave FSU a 14-6 lead. It was the Seminoles first grand slam in over a year; Barrett followed that with a single in the seventh inning to cap his perfect day.

The teams traded runs through the first six innings, with FSU taking a 5-1 lead on James Tibbs III’s three-run home run in the second inning. The Eagles tied it with four runs in the top of the third inning before Barrett’s first home run.

Boston College tied the game on an RBI single in the sixth inning against Conner Whittaker (3-0) before FSU’s 10-run sixth inning. FSU’s first 10 batters of the inning scored, capped by Titan Kamaka’s two-run home run to make the score 16-6. FSU had nine hits in the frame.
