Opinions vary on the FSU baseball team. I have heard some say that coach Martin’s team is wildly overrated. That rating by the way is up to #2 in the Baseball America poll. My retort is at 26-1, they can't be ranked much lower.
We're 27 games into the FSU baseball season, and it's safe to say the garnet & gold have been taking out the competition.
Mike Martin said, "You never expect to win 3 ballgames. You just hope you can play solid baseball. We just happened to do very well this weekend against a good Boston college team."
Fueled by an average of 10 runs per game, the Noles have surged out to a (26-1) record. More importantly, FSU has balanced the hot bats with great pitching from Brian Henry, Michael Hyde and Ryan Strauss. All 3 have combined for 20 wins and 122 strikeouts this season.
Ryan Strauss said, "The biggest difference has been my change-up. I've been able to locate the change-up in and out and throw the fastball, and it's been working for me."
Martin said, "Brian Henry, Michael Hyde and Ryan Strauss have that going for them right now."
Beginning Tuesday night against North Florida, the Noles play 5 more home games before going on a 7-game road trip that includes Duke, Florida & NC State.
