Bryce Hubbart had his best outing of the season. And it came at a perfect time, with the Seminoles in need of a victory — and a series win.
The FSU left-hander tossed seven shutout innings, allowing just a hit, and recording 11 strikeouts with no walks in an 8-1 win at Boston College on Sunday. Hubbart improved to 7-1, retiring the final 17 batters he faced.
After dropping the opener, the Seminoles (28-17, 13-11 ACC) bounced back to take the final two games.
Brett Roberts went 3 for 4 for FSU, which has now won nine weekend series. It’s the first road series win since the Seminoles took two of three at Wake Forest on March 11-13.
FSU broke the game open with a six-run third inning. Roberts had an RBI single, while Alex Toral followed with a two-run single. Jackson Greene and Tyler Martin also had RBI singles, with Jordan Carrion adding a sacrifice fly.
The Noles have won all nine road series against the Eagles since BC joined the ACC for the 2006 season.
