This was the first-ever meeting between Stony Brook and Florida State.


The Seminoles are 15-20 all-time in CWS elimination games.


Stony Brook was 5-0 in elimination contests in this year’s NCAA Tournament before Sunday’s loss to FSU.


The Seminoles have 49 victories, second in the nation to the 52 wins by Stony Brook.


FSU is 24-0 this season when scoring eight or more runs and 50-1 over the past two campaigns.


FSU hurler Mike Compton raised his win total to 12. He leads all freshmen nationally with 12 victories. He has surrendered two earned runs or less in 15 of his 17 collegiate starts.


The three-run dinger by Justin Gonzalez in the third inning was the first multi-run homer of the 2012 CWS.


The 12 runs scored by FSU were the most allowed by Stony Brook this season. The previous high was 10 in an 11-10 victory over Columbia on March 23.


The three runs tallied by the Seawolves in two games are the lowest CWS total since Kansas scored a pair in 1993,


Pat Cantwell gunned down James Ramsey trying to steal in the first. Cantwell has thrown out 23 of 33 would-be base stealers in 2012 (.697).


Stony Brook is the only team with two players having at least 100 hits this season. Travis Jankowski leads the country with 110 hits, while William Carmona has 101.


During Sunday’s afternoon contest, the eight millionth fan in College World Series history came through the gates. The Father’s Day crowd was 22,112.
