Make it 40 after a 6-4 win over the host school, LSU in game one of the best-of-three Super Regionals with the series victor earning a spot in the College World Series in Omaha.
"I think that's been our mentality the whole way, we've been doubted for most of the season and it's really fired us up and I think that mentality isn't gonna change no matter what the media says no matter what the people in Omaha would say, we're gonna keep the underdog mentality and keep it loose the whole way", said Seminoles' third baseman Drew Mendoza.
LSU (40-26) had rallied from a 4-1 deficit in the sixth to tie it in the eighth and force extra innings, during which Tigers relievers pitched six no-hit innings and struck out 10 before Salvatore broke through for Florida State's first hit since the fourth inning.
Every year since 1980, Mike Martin's Florida State team has won at least 40 games.
LSU and Florida State will meet this afternoon to start their best of three Super Regional Series at Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge.
Florida State scored the game's first run on a disputed play in which the ball squirted out of LSU catcher Saul Garza's glove as he swung his arm upward after appearing to tag Robby Martin out at the plate. Outfielder Albert Reese carried the load bringing in four RBIs, then the FSU bullpen shut the door with 4.1 shutout innings to end the game. He slammed two home runs in LSU's Regional last weekend. Watson drove in Duplantis with the tying run on a single off Mendoza's glove, but Watson committed yet another LSU base running mistake when he was thrown out trying to take second as the ball was thrown back to the infield.
