As a freshman Mike Compton had Noles fans thinking, "wow and we've got this guy for two more years."

But then he had major suregery.

Yesterday's performance was one to remember and has Noles fans grinning from ear to ear.

A star was born in Mike Compton at the 2013 College World Series.

But the projected ace for the 2013 season needed Tommy John surgery. Out for the year.

Fast forward almost a year and a half later, the sophomore throws a 2-hitter.

"This was the eleventh year since we had a complete game shutout so thats quite an accomplishment," FSU Head Baseball Coach Mike Martin Said.

"Felt like everything I threw they were not going to hit it. I had pinpoint control. Wherever I wanted it it to go it went," Compton said.

A week ago, eleven said he wasn't happy with the Compton's performance. He wasn't as sharp as he can be. The sophomore delivered for his skipper.

"We saw a guy pinting in and out. We saw a guy throwing a curve ball and a changeup that were really good," Martin said.

"Mainly fastball slider, just mixing those up. Getting the back door slider on lefties, staying outside on lefties with fastball and going inside on righties with the fastball and going away with the slider on righties," Compton said.

"So yes I saw what I thought I was going to see this year and that was a Mike Compton that goes out and dominates,"Martin said.

"Going forward I think this is a great step that had to take place not necessarily the whole nine innings complete game thing but one that I could have a lot of confidence and just go out there and throw my game,"Compton said.
