Florida State took the lead in the bottom of the second inning and kept things rolling through the fourth by taking advantage of Clemson defensive errors. After four, the Seminoles held a 6-0 lead over the Tigers.

Unfortunately, the Seminoles picked up the final out to end the inning and keep the 6-0 lead.
