TALLAHASSEE -- Two key characteristics have defined Florida State's young baseball season to this point: exceptional pitching and timely power hitting.

After losing the entire top half of their batting order in the offseason and one of the better pitchers on staff in the preseason, the Seminoles were hopeful the type of 15-game start they have ended up having would take shape. They just may not have been quite expecting it all to look the way it has.

Simply put, FSU has been dominating. Sure, the Seminoles haven't played the most talented teams in America yet, but what they have done through the first part of the season is nothing to dismiss.

Ahead of their 7 p.m. Tuesday showdown in Gainesville against the rival Florida Gators (8-9), the Seminoles are sporting a 15-0 record. They also are already 3-0 in conference play after beating Boston College over the weekend. Starters Brandon Leibrandt, Scott Sitz, Peter Miller and Luke Weaver have been particularly sharp on the mound. The bullpen, buoyed by Robby Coles, Brandon Johnson, Bryant Holtmann, Gage Smith and Jameis Winston, has been solid enough.

The lineup has been even better.
