Florida State Quotes
Head Coach Mike Martine
"It was obviously a great win for us. The way we got started off enabled us to get some people out of the game. It was very encouraging that we were able to do that. I felt that our two freshman pitchers did a very good job out there today and certainly Buster's (Posey) two of the first three at bats were outstanding .... but certainly that was a big lift for us. I think we just have to look at that game now as one that just happened to get away from Bucknell and we can't dwell on it because we've got to be ready to go in a couple of three hours to play a very good Tulane team."
C Buster Posey
On what he was looking for from the pitcher after his first home run...
"I'm not approaching the at bat any different than I would any other time. I think sometimes a guy might get frustrated you know after somebody hits a home run and gives you a good pitch to hit but then you've got to always be ready for a mistake."
Head Coach Gene Depew
"It's kind of a disappointing day for us to end the tournament that way. I give so much respect to Florida State and the players that they have and the ability that they have. They're really impressive. We feel very fortunate to be in the situation we were in after Friday's game. I'm proud of my team and players for working hard. I think today we certainly continued that effort, we just really struggled on the mound with the first couple of pitchers. When you give up two big innings in the second and third inning, it really is a difficult challenge for the rest of the game. We just tried to hang in there, win an inning and do what we can. It was a hot day, most of the heat was coming off of Florida State's bats, I think. It was still a very good experience for our players. The tournament was run so well and it will be a positive experience for us overall."
