FSU-FGCU game suspended due to lightning

The Florida State-FGCU baseball game on Tuesday night was halted in the top of the fifth inning with one out due to a lightning delay. FSU leads 2-1.

Now, the teams will resume game 1 of the midweek series on Wednesday at noon. Both games will stream live on ACC Network Extra. A second game against FGCU would follow 40 minutes later, although there is also rain in the forecast on Wednesday.

Robby Martin had an RBI groundout in the first inning. Logan Lacey had a solo home run to center field in the third inning, helping give FSU a 2-1 lead.

Carson Montgomery started, faced four batters and issued three walks and had a wild pitch. He got just an out before Tyler Ahearn entered the game with the bases loaded and shut the door. Ahearn got a sac fly and then a strikeout to end the inning.

While he pitched well, recording four strikeouts in 3.1 innings, Ahearn also gave up two hits and ran into trouble in the fourth. Clayton Kwiatkowski got FSU out of another bases-loaded jam by inducing a flyout.

Kwiatkowski got an out in the fifth before lightning in the area put a halt to the game. FGCU has a runner on second base.

Regional projections

After weeks of being projected as a No. 2 seed in a regional at an SEC site, FSU is now projected as a regional host by D1baseball.com. The site has the Seminoles as the No. 16 national seed and hosting a regional with Charlotte, Georgia and South Alabama.

The NCAA baseball selection committee is set to announce 20 regional seeds later this week, with the field narrowed to 16 later.
