TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State hit seven home runs as the Seminoles powered past Stetson 18-10 at Dick Howser Stadium Wednesday.

That was just the beginning of the long balls. The Noles added back-to-back shots in the 3rd, then 3 more home runs in the 6th to lead 12-4 after 6 innings.

 

 

In the bottom of the 8th, pitcher Cobi  Johnson, in his his second collegiate at bat, and first since 2015, hit it over the left field fence for his first college home run.
