Tony THomas Jr. started things in style and a trend in the process. Thomas's lead off home run was the first of 6 for the Noles in the 9-3 win over Maryland. Travis Anderson hit two and Mark Gildea, Rauri O'Conner and Brandon Reichert also hit home runs on a night where the Seminole bats were dialed in. Ace Bryan Henry did give up a three run home run of his own, but did go 6 innings and striking out 6 to get the decision. Game two set for Saturday afternoon.
