TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Sam Howard tossed a two-hitter and struck out 10 as Georgia Southern stunned Florida State 7-0 on Friday in the Tallahassee Regional.

Howard (7-6) retired 15 in a row for the Eagles (40-21) during one stretch. A left-hander, Howard walked two and threw 137 pitches.

Dalton Busby went 3-for-3 with a two-run homer and a double, and Garrett Chapman had a solo home run and a double as Georgia Southern pounded out 16 hits.

Florida State (43-16) had won 19 consecutive NCAA regional games.

Georgia Southern will play Kennesaw State on Saturday, while the Seminoles will play Alabama in an elimination game.

Florida State had as many hits as it did errors. Georgia Southern chased right-hander Mike Compton (7-3) in the second inning, and the Seminoles used four relievers to finish the game.
