Florida State Seminoles set marks for runs and winning margin in a 37-6 pounding of Ohio State Buckeyes

TALLAHASSEE — Stephen Cardullo set an NCAA tournament record with seven hits and Florida State set marks for runs and winning margin Sunday in a 37-6 pounding of Ohio State.

The Seminoles (45-16) set or tied 18 NCAA, school or postseason baseball records (see box below for partial listing) in advancing to the super regions.

"I can honestly say I've never seen anything like it," Seminoles coach Mike Martin said.

Jason Stidham, the region's most outstanding player, hit a two-run double as FSU scored eight in the first and cruised past the pitching-depleted Buckeyes (42-19), who trailed 32-0 in the fifth just hours after beating Georgia 13-6 to oust the Bulldogs.

"It was a great feeling," Cardullo said. "It's definitely true that hitting is contagious."

Friday, Ohio State lost its opener to Georgia 24-8.

GATORS ADVANCE: Former Tampa Alonso pitcher Alex Panteliodis had a career-high six strikeouts, and Florida scored five in the top of the first in a 16-5 victory over Miami in the Gainesville Region. UF (42-20) hosts Georgia Tech or Southern Miss in this week's super region. The Gators advanced out of a region that included Miami for the first time in 14 tries. This also marks the first time in 14 tries since 1990 that the Hurricanes (38-22) have not won when they played in a region in Florida. Tampa freshman Preston Tucker broke the school season RBI record in the first; he has 83. Earlier, UM eliminated Jacksonville 4-0.

    MINNEAPOLIS — Before the Rays eventually won Sunday's 6½-hour, 15-inning marathon against the Twins 8-6, they did plenty to lose it. And we need to get that out of the way first.

    The Rays’ Evan Longoria enjoys a laugh after scoring, barely, to tie it in the ninth on Steven Souza Jr.’s two-out single.
  3. Tom Jones' Two Cents: ABC's Indy 500 coverage is stellar again

    Times columnist Tom Jones looks back at the best and worst from a weekend of televised sports.

    Best coverage

    Takuma Sato left, celebrates after winning the Indianapolis 500 as Helio Castroneves is a little late passing him. ABC’s coverage of the race is stellar throughout, with plenty of extras but no fake drama.

    INDIANAPOLIS — Takuma Sato, a journeyman driver, became the first Japanese winner of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday when he held off three-time champion Helio Castroneves in a 230-mph wheel-rubbing duel to the finish.

    Scott Dixon’s car goes over the top of Jay Howard, soaring so high that Helio Castroneves drove under it while it was airborne. Stunningly, there were no serious injuries.

    The Rays won because they got two innings of good relief from each of the two pitchers who contributed to them losing Saturday's game, Danny Farquhar (who again struck out Miguel Sano) and Tommy Hunter, who both posted zeroes.
