Saturday's Stanford-Florida St. game rained out
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The super regional game between Florida State and Stanford on Saturday night was postponed because of rain.
The second game of the series was rescheduled for 7 p.m. EDT Sunday. NCAA officials waited roughly 90 minutes Saturday as a steady rain fell at Dick Howser Stadium and the weather radar showed little letup for the next several hours.
The Seminoles (47-16) have a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three series. Stanford (41-17) needs to win the second game to force a third game Monday.
Florida State will start freshman Mike Compton (11-2) and Stanford will go with left-hander Brett Mooneyham (7-5) on Sunday night.
In Friday's opener, Devon Travis had a pair of homers and drove in six runs as the Seminoles chased Stanford ace Mark Appel with a seven-run fourth inning on the way to a 17-1 win.
Florida State coach Mike Martin and Stanford coach Mark Marquess have each taken 14 teams to the College World Series. Marquess has a pair of national titles, while the 68-year-old Martin, the third-winningest coach in NCAA history with 1,720 victories, is still searching for a CWS title.
