TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Florida State finished up their fall baseball schedule with a dominant 18-1 win over the Ontario Blue Jays, Monday afternoon at Dick Howser Stadium.

"I liked a lot of stuff that we saw this fall," said Florida State head coach Mike Martin. "I liked the fight, the willingness to learn. Our guys have made vast improvements. It's a team that has a little depth, but obviously we need to keep everyone healthy. I am already anxious to get started in the spring."

The Noles hit three home runs in the game: One each from junior John Sansone, sophomore Hank Truluck, and freshman Jackson Owens. In total, 14 players from FSU earned at least one hit, while Truluck and Sansone led the offense with three RBIs each.

The Seminoles' pitching staff put together a solid outing, allowing Ontario just three hits on the day. Billy Strode, Boomer Biegalski, Bryant Holtmann, Andrew Karp, Taylor Blatch, Ed Voyles, and Alex Deise all saw time on the mound.

"What I was looking for was nerves," explained Martin on evaluating his hurlers. "How did he handle the opportunity and I thought that was very good because of course they didn't get a hit until the eighth inning."
