Stinnett Impresses Seminoles in Defeat

by John Vittas

Jake Stinnett took the loss against No. 2 Florida State Friday, but did win over the Florida State dugout.

“Coming into the game, we knew what he was about, how good of a pitcher he was,” Seminoles starter Luke Weaver said. “He had a great night. The whole time I was just trying to compete with him and put up zeroes like he was. We just happened to get the edge.”

At the onset of the FSU press conference, Hall of Fame head coach Mike Martin went out of his way to compliment the Terps’ senior.

“I’ll tell you what,” Martin said. “Mister Stinnett was very impressive. He’s got a good arm, a good breaking ball. He did a very good job.”

Stinnett is 2-0 with 16 shutout innings at home so far in 2014, including a no-hitter against UMass Saturday. However, he is 0-2 with an ERA of 5.25 in the state of Florida this year. Both of those losses came against ranked teams, No. 20 Florida in the season opener and No. 2 Florida State in the ACC opener.
