SALISBURY, Md. – Devin Hemmerich (5-4) pitched his first complete game of the year, striking out a season-high 9 Florida A&M batters as the Spartans eliminated the defending MEAC champion Rattlers, 4-2, to advance to Tuesday’s MEAC Tournament championship against Bethune-Cookman.

The Spartans (29-20) need to beat BCU twice tomorrow to win their first-ever MEAC title. Game time is 1 p.m. at Perdue Stadium.

Hemmerich allowed just eight hits and two runs – one earned – while walking one and punching out nine batters. Alex Mauricio led the NSU offense with two hits and an RBI.
