Sean Gilmartin, Braves First Round Pick, Pitches In NCAA Baseball Super Regionals

It's been quite a week for Sean Gilmartin. First, the left-handed pitcher out of Florida State was selected by the Braves in the first round of the MLB Draft and then had to prepare for the daunting task of pitching for the Seminoles in the College World Series.

Gilmartin made the start today and went seven strong innings. He did allow five runs on six hits and a walk, though he did strikeout eight of the Texas A&M hitters. The home plate umpire had an inconsistent strike zone all game and Gilmartin was squeezed on multiple occasions.

It was still a promising start for the lefty. He appears to be very smart, calm and collected on the mound and lives on the corners of the plate. He only made one real mistake to Texas A&M and that was a hanging changeup that drove in two runs for the Aggies.

Gilmartin and the Seminoles are currently trailing Texas A&M 6-2.
