2017 ACC Semi-final Game 1

Florida State Seminoles vs. Duke Blue Devils (NCAA)

Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY:  Back at it on Saturday, this time for the first of the semi-final games.  I have no idea how Duke survival a ‘pool’ with Virginia and Clemson, but somehow they made it this far, as did FSU.  Brian joined us for the games today, also, and he’s always happy to spend time with his Papa.

Duke simply looked like the next team to be fed to the ACC darling Seminoles, anyway.  Florida State jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning due to some fine hitting from un-named players.  They then added two more in the third, and one in the fourth.  The Blue Devils didn’t have any offense going until the ninth inning, when Jimmy Herron scored on a Jack Labosky base hit.

Adam Laskey took the loss for Duke, giving up four runs on six hits during his 2.1 innings of work.  An un-named Seminole pitcher earned the win for his team, only giving up two hits and striking out eight in this 6.2 innings.  FINAL:  Seminoles 5, Blue Devils 1.

Brian got a ball from one of the FSU players, so at least they have on fan in the family

Not much of a competitive game, but still fun to be at the ballpark. We would check out the ACC Fan Fest between games, as we settled in for the afternoon bout.
