Brandon Leibrandt pitched eight scoreless innings and James Ramsey hit a grand slam as Florida State defeated Samford 8-1 on Saturday in the Tallahassee Regional. Leibrandt (11-2) scattered three singles, just one after the first inning. The freshman left-hander, whose father is former big league pitcher Charlie Leibrandt, fanned a career-high 10 batters before leaving after throwing 110 pitches. Ramsey, the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year, hit his first grand slam in the seventh inning off Samford's Joseph Burns, who relieved Josh Martin (12-2) to face Ramsey. Sherman Johnson scored three times and also homered for Florida State (45-15). Jayce Boyd added two hits and two RBIs for the Seminoles. The Seminoles play the winner of Sunday afternoon's elimination game between Samford (40-22) and Mississippi State (40-23), which eliminated UAB 8-1 earlier Saturday. C.K. Irby's two-out, ninth inning single off reliever Hunter Scantling spoiled Florida State's shutout bid.
