The highly anticipated Virginia-Florida State baseball series will get a delayed start.

Because of rain, game one, scheduled for a 6 p.m., Friday, first pitch, was called around 8:40 p.m. It will be made up as part of a doubleheader, which will begin at 1 p.m., today. Tickets from Friday’s game will be accepted then.

Around 800 tickets are still available for the opener, but today’s second game is sold-out. Sunday’s finale is also sold-out.

Davenport Field is still expected to be rocking.

The No. 7 Cavaliers are 32-6 and 13-5 in the ACC. The No. 5 Seminoles are 31-6 and 13-5.

It’s this weekend’s lone series pitting two top 10 teams.

“These are the kind of games, these are the kind of series that our fans really, really come out and support our program,” said UVa coach Brian O’Connor, “like they have all year and they have in the past. But this is a big one. This is a matchup that everybody wants to see. ... I would imagine the atmosphere in our stadium will be as good as it gets. It should be.

“Our guys and everybody is looking forward to that kind of experience this weekend.”

Added left fielder Mike Papi, who leads the Wahoos with a .393 batting average: “Hopefully, it’s going to be great. Hopefully, there’s a lot of people and our fans come out. We have great support this year.”
