Updates: FSU Baseball takes 3-1 lead over Stetson in Tallahassee Regional

For the first time since 2018, Florida State baseball will host an NCAA regional tournament this weekend.

FSU's first home postseason game in six years will be at noon Friday when the No. 8 overall seed Seminoles (42-15) face No. 4 overall seed Stetson (40-20) at Dick Howser Stadium. The game will be broadcast on the ACC Network and on the radio at 100.7 FM/

​FSU will have its hands full against the Hatters on Friday afternoon. Stetson is the No. 4 seed in a regional that has won 40 games this season through this weekend. Additionally, Stetson's 100 RPI is the second-highest of all four seeds, with only Evansville (76) having more. The Seminoles and Hatters have split the regular season this year, with FSU winning 1-0 in Tallahassee on March 19 and Stetson winning 10-5 in Deland on May 14. FSU leads the overall series against Stetson 68-26 and has an overall record of 43-11 against the Hatters in home games.

FSU head coach Link Jarrett announced Thursday that the Seminoles will start junior left-hander Carson Dorsey (5-4, 5.53 ERA) for the opener, opting to rest their top hitter Jamie Arnold for Saturday. Dorsey allowed eight runs in one inning in the ACC Tournament last week but has had a 3.76 ERA since being added to the weekend rotation midseason before last week and has a 2.67 ERA in home games this season. Dorsey recorded a save in FSU's home win over Stetson earlier this season by striking out all three batters he faced.

Stetson starts junior right-hander Dylan Jacobs (1-1, 4.93), a former Seminole who transferred to Stetson in 2022 after one season at FSU. Jacobs started the Hatters' win over FSU in Deland a few weeks ago, allowing four runs (one earned) on six hits in 5.1 innings. In 49.1 innings this season, Jacobs has allowed 67 hits (19 extra-base hits), walked 21 batters and 44 strikeouts. Starting lineups will be posted here as soon as they are announced.

Bob and I will be at Howser all weekend providing updates, starting today as soon as the game starts. You can follow our live updates in the game thread.
