TALLAHASSEE — Florida State recorded a season-high 25 hits to defeat Florida 17-11 in an elimination game Saturday in baseball's NCAA Tournament.

To reach the Super Region FSU (49-11) the nation's No. 4 seed, must beat Bucknell, which lost 4-1 to Tulane, at 1 today and Tulane at 7 tonight and 7 Monday. Bucknell upset FSU 7-0 on Friday.

FSU trailed 5-1 after three but scored seven in the fifth and five in the seventh capped by Tony Delmonico's three-run homer.

"You just have to … keep your poise and stay patient," Seminoles coach Mike Martin said.
