Florida State calls right-handed pitcher Scott Sitz the “Bulldog” for a good reason.
After splitting their first two games at the College World Series against Arizona and Stony Brook, the Seminoles had the tough chore of getting through UCLA in yet another elimination game on Tuesday. Sitz, who hasn’t been the most consistent arm fro the ‘Noles this season, got the start, and the Seminoles needed a few strong innings out of him.
Florida State’s “Bulldog” showed a strong bite against the Bruins, as he pitched an absolute gem on the way to a 4-1 victory to stay alive in Omaha.
“We all know the pitching was the key to the game, Scotty was just outstanding,” Florida State coach Mike Martin said. “The sixth inning was the big inning where Scotty showed his nickname is evident. He was a bulldog. That was big for us.”
