TALLAHASSEE, Fla. ( — No. 21 Florida State (31-18, 14-12 ACC) split a Saturday doubleheader against No. 6 Miami (37-13, 18-8), falling 8-2 in game one and winning 6-4 in the late game.

Game 2 – FSU 6, Miami 4

Florida State raced out to a 5-0 lead after the third inning – highlighted by Jordan Carrion’s home run – before hanging on for a 6-4 win Saturday night. Bryce Hubbart improved to 8-1 on the year, allowing just one earned run in 5.0 innings.

Wyatt Crowell earned the four-inning save, giving up one unearned run with a career-high seven strikeouts. It was Crowell’s second career save, and second of the week.

Three of Miami’s four runs were unearned.

FSU started the scoring when Tyler Martin was hit by a pitch and came around to score on a balk. In the third, Martin singled and scored on Jordan Carrion’s second home run of the season.

Later in the inning, Reese Albert walked and scored on Brett Roberts’ double before Alex Toral’s RBI single. All six of FSU’s runs came against Hurricanes’ starter Karson Ligon (6-4).

Albert tracked down a long fly ball with two runners on base to end the fourth inning and preserve the shutout.

Miami clawed back with three runs in the fifth inning, the final two of which were unearned.

The teams traded a run after that, when Albert scored on Toral’s sacrifice fly, and Miami scored on a passed ball in the seventh. The Hurricanes had the bases loaded with no outs in the inning, but plated just the one run as Crowell struck out two batters and forced an inning-ending flyout.

In the ninth, Miami’s leadoff batter reached on a dropped third strike but was erased when Carrion started a 6-4-3 double play. Logan Lacey, an eighth inning replacement at the plate, made a diving stop and throw across the diamond from third base to end the game.
