NIAGARA SHOCKS NUMBER 14 FLORIDA STATE 3 TO 1 . Niagara trailed 1-0 with 2 hits, holding Fla State toi 3 hits. Fla State pitching crumbled in the ninth loading the bases and then walking two Purps in on Base on Balls. The insurance run scored as the Nu Batter beat out an grounder to extend the lead to 3 to 1. FLa St burned thru 4 pitchers in the top of the ninth. Alex Mc Kinnon struck out 2 batters in the bottom of the ninth before the game was win on a fly ball to left.

First win ever fior NU over Fla State , huge way to start off the season by knocking off the 14th ranked team in the Country.

The game will be available on demand on ESPN or ACCN per the announcers.

NU pitching from what I saw was steady, McKinnon threw almost nothing but strikes. Fla State relief pitching was not that impressive. A great way to start off the season ! What's that saying, slow and steady wins the race. AT least for one night that was true! Tomorrow's game will be ACCN at 2 p.m.

The Sunday game is also on the same network. To give you an idea of the significance of this win, Niagara was previously 0-10 against FSU. Last time they played was a 3 game series in 2014 and the total was 30-3 FSU. The starter for Florida State who excelled through 5 innings is a pre season All American. FSU's head coach just retired after 40 years and his son took over this year,
having been an assistant for 22 years. The father's teams won at least 40 games every season in those 40 years going to the College World Series 16 times. The next best streak of 40 wins by any team was 7 as of the year before last season. Last year in a 4 game series to open the season against Maine, FSU played one close game and had 3 blowout wins including a no hitter. We'll have a much better idea how deep Niagara is after the series is over. Hopefully Niagara has a few more good pitchers. Will be fun to find out but fear it could be a couple of dreadful losses just as easily.
