No. 5 FSU Opens 2015 With Two Wins.
The Seminoles defeat No. 6 Kentucky (3-2) and Georgia Southern (8-0 in 6 innings) on the first day of the Renegade Classic.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The Florida State softball team (2-0) are off to a great start in 2015, winning both games on Saturday at the Renegade Classic in Tallahassee, Fla. The Noles defeated Georgia Southern, 8-0 in six innings, and also No. 6 Kentucky, 3-2. Freshman third baseman Jessica Warren led all hitters with five base hits on two doubles and two home runs and drove in four RBI.

“It feels great to start off the season with a couple of wins over two quality teams,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “I think there were some nerves that were affecting us early, but we played through it, found our rhythm and were able to play Seminole Softball. Lacey and JB were excellent in the circle for us again, and it was good to see some of the freshmen, like Jessica Warren, come up big for us today.”

Jessica Burroughs started the game in the circle for FSU and was dominant early. The redshirt sophomore retired the first 11 batters she faced, including six strikeouts, before allowing a bloop single to right center in the top of the fourth.

That base hit proved to be the only baserunner surrendered by Seminoles as Burroughs (1-0) earned the win after she sent down the final seven Eagle batters of the game.

She retired 18 of 19 batters for the game, finishing with 6.0 innings pitched, one hit, zero walks and eight strikeouts, marking the second time in her career that she faced just one over the minimum. She went 15-for-16 against Southern Miss on February 16, 2014.

Offensively against the Eagles, FSU jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead in the first as Warren led off the game with a walk and was moved to third on a double by junior Alex Kossoff. Senior shortstop Maddie O’Brien drove in the game’s first run on an RBI groundout to second base.

O’Brien added another RBI in the third inning on a sac fly to center to score Warren who reached on a single to left field. Victoria East scored on a wild pitch in the fourth inning after she hit a single, stole second and advanced on a throwing error on the Georgia Southern catcher.

Florida State exploded for five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to secure the run-rule victory. Alex Powers led off the inning with a single to right field which was immediately followed by an RBI double to right center by senior Bailey Schinella. Freshman Korina Rosario also doubled and an RBI groundout by Ellie Cooper extended the FSU lead to 5-0.

A walk by Macey Cheatham and a sacrifice fly by freshman Morgan Klaevemann set the stage for Warren to end the game as her two-run home run to right field gave the Seminoles the 8-0 victory.

Game two against Kentucky was an intense matchup of top 10 teams that both played in the 2014 Women’s College World Series. Lacey Waldrop earned the start for the Noles and showed lots of poise early on. In both the first and second innings, the Wildcats were able to get runners on third base with one away but both times Waldrop and the Noles were able to leave them stranded.

The game remained a shutout until the bottom of the third inning when Jessica Warren lined a solo home run over the fence in right center. Powers scored later in the inning to make it 2-0 after a single to right and a pair of errors on a groundball by Schinella.

Warren extended the lead to 3-0 on an RBI double in the bottom of the sixth after Klaevemann singled to left, stole second and came in to score.

From the second inning to the sixth, Waldrop retired 14 consecutive batters, striking out nine, before allowing a leadoff walk in the seventh inning to Griffin Joiner.

The Wildcats added two hits and two unearned runs in the inning after a fielding error by Warren at third base extended the frame. Waldrop secured the win by inducing a foul pop out to Cheatham at catcher.

Waldrop (1-0) tossed 7.0 innings in the complete game victory, allowing four hits, two unearned runs, one walk and 12 strikeouts. It marked the sixth time in her career that she recorded 12 strikeouts in a game.

No. 5 FSU Opens 2015 With Two Wins.
The Seminoles defeat No. 6 Kentucky (3-2) and Georgia Southern (8-0 in 6 innings) on the first day of the Renegade Classic.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The Florida State softball team (2-0) are off to a great start in 2015, winning both games on Saturday at the Renegade Classic in Tallahassee, Fla. The Noles defeated Georgia Southern, 8-0 in six innings, and also No. 6 Kentucky, 3-2.

FSU Pitchers Waldrop And Burroughs Dominate In Sunday Split.
Lacey Waldrop throws her sixth career no-hitter and Jessica Burroughs records 14 strikeouts as No. 5 FSU defeats Georgia Southern, 4-0, but falls to No. 6 Kentucky 3-1.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Continuing the long tradition of excellent pitchers in the 32-year history of Florida State Softball, senior Lacey Waldrop and redshirt sophomore Jessica Burroughs put together two impressive performances on Sunday. The No. 5 Seminoles (3-1) split the final two games of the Renegade Classic, falling to No. 6 Kentucky, 3-1, and defeating Georgia Southern, 4-0.

Waldrop recorded 12 strikeouts in 6.0 innings against the Eagles (0-4) and combined with Bailey Schinella to toss her sixth career no-hitter. Burroughs posted a career-high 14 strikeouts over 7.0 innings without allowing an earned run against the nationally ranked Wildcats (4-1). For the weekend, Seminole pitchers combined for 47 strikeouts over the 81 outs (27.0 innings) of the tournament, resulting in a 58 percent strikeout average.

“We got what we expected out of Kentucky and Georgia Southern this weekend,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “They are two tough teams that don’t give up until the final out and make you play your best. We had some outstanding pitching today out of Lacey and JB and I am really proud of how Jessica competed against a World Series team. That experience will serve us well down the road.”

In her second career start against a ranked opponent, Burroughs was untouchable through the first five innings against the No. 5 Wildcats. The only baserunner allowed came on a hit by pitch to Brooklin Hiz in the second inning. The Warner Robins, Ga., native posted 11 strikeouts through the first 15 outs of the game.

Florida State scored first in the bottom of the third after the bases were loaded by a leadoff single by Morgan Klaevemann, followed by Jessica Warren and Alex Kossoff reaching on a fielder’s choice and a fielding error, respectively. Schinella drew a five-pitch walk to plate Klaevemann and give the Noles a 1-0 lead.

Wildcat batters finally scratched out their first hit in the top of the sixth inning as Kara Howard led off with a single to left field. Following a strikeout and a pop out, the Kentucky half of the inning was extended on a fielding error by Maddie O’Brien.

A walk to Nikki Sagermann loaded the bases for Griffin Joiner who hit a deep shot off the right field wall for a bases-clearing double to give the Wildcats a 3-1 lead.

UK starter Kelsey Nunley (2-0) bent but did not break in the circle for the Wildcats, allowing two hits and four walks but only surrendered one unearned run in the complete game victory. The Noles only had two runners reach base in the final four innings and stranded seven total baserunners for the game.

Burroughs (1-1) picked up the loss, despite her impressive 7.0-inning, 14-strikeout performance. She also gave up three hits and three unearned runs, while walking one.

In the second game, Florida State jumped out to a quick lead on Georgia Southern in the first inning as the bases were loaded on a single by Kossoff, followed by walks to O’Brien and Alex Powers. In her second bases-loaded appearance of the day, Schinella blasted a 1-1 pitch over the left field wall for a grand slam.

The Noles would continue to have offensive chances as the game continued, including two singles each from Ellie Cooper and Amy Szymanowski, as well as a triple from O’Brien, but FSU was unable to push across another run for the remainder of the game.

In the circle, Waldrop (2-0) was lights out. She scattered five total base runners in six innings of work on three walks and two hit-by-pitches. Her mix of speeds kept the Eagle hitters off balance all game as the senior from Chester, Va., racked up 12 strikeouts before coming out of the game after the sixth inning.

Schinella opened the game with the bat, but closed it with her arm as she pitched the final inning for the Seminoles. She retired all three batters she faced, recording one strikeout and inducing two infield groundouts to secure the 4-0 victory for Florida State. The combined no-hitter was the second of Schinella’s career as she and Waldrop completed the same feat against North Dakota State on February 15, 2014.

“Games like these are why we made our schedule this tough,” added Alameda. “We want to be tested, we want to face the best and we know it doesn’t get any easier from here. We had some nice wins this weekend, but we also have several things we can work on as we move forward to games against two ranked teams next weekend.”

FSU Pitchers Waldrop And Burroughs Dominate In Sunday Split.
Lacey Waldrop throws her sixth career no-hitter and Jessica Burroughs records 14 strikeouts as No. 5 FSU defeats Georgia Southern, 4-0, but falls to No. 6 Kentucky 3-1.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Continuing the long tradition of excellent pitchers in the 32-year history of Florida State Softball, senior Lacey Waldrop and redshirt sophomore Jessica Burroughs put together two impressive performances on Sunday. The No. 5 Seminoles (3-1) split the final two games of the Renegade Classic, falling to No. 6 Kentucky, 3-1, and defeating Georgia Southern, 4-0.

Waldrop recorded 12 strikeouts in 6.0 innings against the Eagles (0-4) and combined with Bailey Schinella to toss her sixth career no-hitter. Burroughs posted a career-high 14 strikeouts over 7.0 innings without allowing an earned run against the nationally ranked Wildcats (4-1). For the weekend, Seminole pitchers combined for 47 strikeouts over the 81 outs (27.0 innings) of the tournament, resulting in a 58 percent strikeout average.

“We got what we expected out of Kentucky and Georgia Southern this weekend,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “They are two tough teams that don’t give up until the final out and make you play your best. We had some outstanding pitching today out of Lacey and JB and I am really proud of how Jessica competed against a World Series team. That experience will serve us well down the road.”

In her second career start against a ranked opponent, Burroughs was untouchable through the first five innings against the No. 5 Wildcats. The only baserunner allowed came on a hit by pitch to Brooklin Hiz in the second inning. The Warner Robins, Ga., native posted 11 strikeouts through the first 15 outs of the game.

Florida State scored first in the bottom of the third after the bases were loaded by a leadoff single by Morgan Klaevemann, followed by Jessica Warren and Alex Kossoff reaching on a fielder’s choice and a fielding error, respectively. Schinella drew a five-pitch walk to plate Klaevemann and give the Noles a 1-0 lead.

Wildcat batters finally scratched out their first hit in the top of the sixth inning as Kara Howard led off with a single to left field. Following a strikeout and a pop out, the Kentucky half of the inning was extended on a fielding error by Maddie O’Brien.

A walk to Nikki Sagermann loaded the bases for Griffin Joiner who hit a deep shot off the right field wall for a bases-clearing double to give the Wildcats a 3-1 lead.

UK starter Kelsey Nunley (2-0) bent but did not break in the circle for the Wildcats, allowing two hits and four walks but only surrendered one unearned run in the complete game victory. The Noles only had two runners reach base in the final four innings and stranded seven total baserunners for the game.

Burroughs (1-1) picked up the loss, despite her impressive 7.0-inning, 14-strikeout performance. She also gave up three hits and three unearned runs, while walking one.

In the second game, Florida State jumped out to a quick lead on Georgia Southern in the first inning as the bases were loaded on a single by Kossoff, followed by walks to O’Brien and Alex Powers. In her second bases-loaded appearance of the day, Schinella blasted a 1-1 pitch over the left field wall for a grand slam.

The Noles would continue to have offensive chances as the game continued, including two singles each from Ellie Cooper and Amy Szymanowski, as well as a triple from O’Brien, but FSU was unable to push across another run for the remainder of the game.

In the circle, Waldrop (2-0) was lights out. She scattered five total base runners in six innings of work on three walks and two hit-by-pitches. Her mix of speeds kept the Eagle hitters off balance all game as the senior from Chester, Va., racked up 12 strikeouts before coming out of the game after the sixth inning.

Schinella opened the game with the bat, but closed it with her arm as she pitched the final inning for the Seminoles. She retired all three batters she faced, recording one strikeout and inducing two infield groundouts to secure the 4-0 victory for Florida State. The combined no-hitter was the second of Schinella’s career as she and Waldrop completed the same feat against North Dakota State on February 15, 2014.

“Games like these are why we made our schedule this tough,” added Alameda. “We want to be tested, we want to face the best and we know it doesn’t get any easier from here. We had some nice wins this weekend, but we also have several things we can work on as we move forward to games against two ranked teams next weekend.”

FLORIDA STATE 12, FLORIDA A&M 5
02/10/2015, TALLAHASSEE, FL

Alex Powers Blasts FSU Over Florida A&M.
Powers hits two home runs and the No. 5 Seminoles scored 10 runs in the final three innings to post a 12-5 victory over Florida A&M.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The Florida State Seminoles (4-1) earned their first road victory of the season after heading across town and defeating Florida A&M (0-6) by a score of 12-5 on Tuesday night at Lady Rattler Field. The Rattlers got out to a 5-2 lead through four innings, but FSU scored 10 unanswered runs to secure the win.

“FAMU is a tough and scrappy team that makes each game a challenge,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “I am glad that we were able to have a game like this where we had to dig down and scratch out a win. Very proud of how the team fought through the adversity and stayed focused.”

The Noles got on the board right away in the first inning on a two-run home run off the bat of redshirt sophomore Alex Powers. It was the first home run of her career and scored Bailey Schinella who reached on a walk.

Florida A&M got one back in the bottom of the inning after getting an RBI single to center from Miesha McBride to plate Whitney Farris, who had reached third earlier in the inning on a passed ball.

The Rattlers took the lead on three runs in the second inning on two walks and a single off of Seminole starter Jessica Burroughs, as errors by Powers and Victoria East were costly in extending the inning for FAMU. The Rattlers led 4-2 after two full innings.

Lacey Waldrop came in to relieve Burroughs for the start of the fourth inning. Burroughs finished with 3.0 innings pitched, allowing four hits, four unearned runs and three walks while striking out seven.

FAMU took advantage of a leadoff walk in the fourth by Waldrop and pushed across another run after a wild pitch and two perfectly placed bunts to extend its lead to 5-2.

The Seminole bats got in gear in the fifth inning as FSU brought 10 batters to the plate in the frame. Schinella started off the inning with a single to center, followed by a walk to Powers. An RBI double to center by Victoria East scored Schinella and cut the FAMU lead to 5-3.

Ellie Cooper was then hit by a pitch for the second time in the game to load the bases. FAMU nearly got out of the inning after a line out and a strikeout, but a fielding error on a Morgan Klaevemann line drive allowed two runs to score and tie the game at 5-5.

Jessica Warren came to the plate a batter later and drove in an RBI with a single to left to give FSU a 6-5 lead through five innings.

FSU scored another run in the sixth on a perfectly placed RBI bunt single by Kossoff and put the game out of reach with five more runs in the seventh.

Maddie O’Brien drove in a run on a single to center, Powers added her second two-run home run of the game and junior Amy Szymanowski added an RBI with a bases-loaded groundout to second to close out the Seminole scoring.

Waldrop (3-0) pitched very well in 3.0 innings of relief to get the win. She allowed just one hit, one earned run and one walk and registered five strikeouts. Schinella pitched a scoreless seventh to finish the game, surrendering just one base hit.

02/13/2015, TALLAHASSEE, FL, Unconquered Invitational

Florida State Earns Wins Over No. 20 Nebraska And Western Kentucky.
The No. 5 Seminoles recorded victories over Nebraska, 4-1, and Western Kentucky, 2-1, on the first day of the Unconquered Invitational.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The Florida State softball team leaned on its pitching staff as the No. 5 Seminoles (6-1) posted wins over No. 20 Nebraska (4-3) and Western Kentucky (4-3) on the first day of the Unconquered Invitational on February 13. FSU defeated the Huskers, 4-1, before ending the night with a 2-1 victory over the Hilltoppers.

“Nebraska is a storied program and that was a great game,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “Western Kentucky is a quality team as well and I’m really pleased to get two hard-fought wins.”

FSU jumped out a 2-0 lead on Nebraska starter Emily Lockman in the first inning as a walk to Maddie O’Brien and a single by Bailey Schinella set the stage for a bases-clearing double down the left field line by redshirt sophomore Alex Powers.

Powers added another double in the bottom of the third inning to post her second straight game with multiple extra base hits. The Melbourne, Fla., native hit two home runs versus Florida A&M on February 10.

Seminole starter Jessica Burroughs allowed just one base runner in the first three innings and didn’t surrender a hit until a one-out single by Stephanie Pasquale in the fourth inning. A double to center by Kat Woolman later in the frame looked to end the shutout, but the relay of Morgan Klaevemann, O’Brien and Macey Cheatham gunned down Pasquale at the plate.

Florida State scored two more runs in the sixth inning on a play that involved two Nebraska errors. Leading off the inning with a base hit, Victoria East moved up to second after Ellie Cooper was hit by a pitch.

Both Seminole runners came around to score after Husker first baseman Mattie Fowler failed to catch the throw on a batted ball from Alex Kossoff and then committed a throwing error in trying to throw out East at the plate.

The Huskers finally got on the board in the top of the seventh on a leadoff home run to right by Kaylee Muir. Burroughs (2-1) ended the game with three strikeouts to secure the FSU victory. She finished with 7.0 innings pitched and allowed four hits, one run, one walk and recorded six strikeouts.

Florida State versus Western Kentucky was as advertised, with a great pitching duel between FSU’s Lacey Waldrop and WKU’s Miranda Kramer. The 2014 National Player of the Year (Waldrop) and the current National Player of the Week (Kramer) showed why they are two of the best pitchers in the country.

Through the first three innings, the duo allowed just four total baserunners on two hits off Waldrop and two walks from Kramer. All nine FSU outs came via the strikeout while Waldrop was able to record six of her own.

Western Kentucky pushed across one run in the top of the fourth as Waldrop issued a bases-loaded walk to Carleigh Chaumont. It was one of three walks in the inning and there was also a fielding error by Powers.

Kramer was able to keep FSU without a hit until the fourth inning when East hit a one-out double to the wall in right. Korina Rosario, who pinch ran for Powers following a walk, ended up on third. The Noles were kept off the scoreboard as WKU’s Kramer posted a strikeout and induced a pop out to end the inning.

In the Seminole fifth, walks to Cooper and O’Brien, along with a hit-by-pitch to Jessica Warren, loaded the bases for Bailey Schinella with one out. A grounder to WKU second baseman Chaumont scooted under her glove and into right field to score Cooper and Warren and give FSU a 2-1 lead.

A base hit by Klaevemann in the sixth was the only FSU offense for the remainder of the game, but it was all the Seminoles would need. Waldrop improved to 4-0 on the season and finished with 7.0 innings and allowed four hits, one unearned run with three walks and 11 strikeouts. She has recorded at least 11 strikeouts in all three of her starts this season.

WKU’s Kramer (3-2) was just as impressive in the loss, throwing 6.0 innings, allowing just two hits, two runs, one earned with five walks and 15 strikeouts. Kramer now has 58 strikeouts on the season in just 28.0 innings pitched.

“We’re really just trying to figure ourselves out as it is such an early part of the season,” added Alameda. “It was really good to see Jessica get the full seven innings and Lacey also pitched great for us as well. I know our offense will come around, but it is always good to have pitchers like that in the circle.”

Florida State Earns Wins Over No. 20 Nebraska And Western Kentucky.
The No. 5 Seminoles recorded victories over Nebraska, 4-1, and Western Kentucky, 2-1, on the first day of the Unconquered Invitational.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The Florida State softball team leaned on its pitching staff as the No. 5 Seminoles (6-1) posted wins over No. 20 Nebraska (4-3) and Western Kentucky (4-3) on the first day of the Unconquered Invitational on February 13. FSU defeated the Huskers, 4-1, before ending the night with a 2-1 victory over the Hilltoppers.

“Nebraska is a storied program and that was a great game,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “Western Kentucky is a quality team as well and I’m really pleased to get two hard-fought wins.”

FSU jumped out a 2-0 lead on Nebraska starter Emily Lockman in the first inning as a walk to Maddie O’Brien and a single by Bailey Schinella set the stage for a bases-clearing double down the left field line by redshirt sophomore Alex Powers.

Powers added another double in the bottom of the third inning to post her second straight game with multiple extra base hits. The Melbourne, Fla., native hit two home runs versus Florida A&M on February 10.

Seminole starter Jessica Burroughs allowed just one base runner in the first three innings and didn’t surrender a hit until a one-out single by Stephanie Pasquale in the fourth inning. A double to center by Kat Woolman later in the frame looked to end the shutout, but the relay of Morgan Klaevemann, O’Brien and Macey Cheatham gunned down Pasquale at the plate.

Florida State scored two more runs in the sixth inning on a play that involved two Nebraska errors. Leading off the inning with a base hit, Victoria East moved up to second after Ellie Cooper was hit by a pitch.

Both Seminole runners came around to score after Husker first baseman Mattie Fowler failed to catch the throw on a batted ball from Alex Kossoff and then committed a throwing error in trying to throw out East at the plate.

The Huskers finally got on the board in the top of the seventh on a leadoff home run to right by Kaylee Muir. Burroughs (2-1) ended the game with three strikeouts to secure the FSU victory. She finished with 7.0 innings pitched and allowed four hits, one run, one walk and recorded six strikeouts.

Florida State versus Western Kentucky was as advertised, with a great pitching duel between FSU’s Lacey Waldrop and WKU’s Miranda Kramer. The 2014 National Player of the Year (Waldrop) and the current National Player of the Week (Kramer) showed why they are two of the best pitchers in the country.

Through the first three innings, the duo allowed just four total baserunners on two hits off Waldrop and two walks from Kramer. All nine FSU outs came via the strikeout while Waldrop was able to record six of her own.

Western Kentucky pushed across one run in the top of the fourth as Waldrop issued a bases-loaded walk to Carleigh Chaumont. It was one of three walks in the inning and there was also a fielding error by Powers.

Kramer was able to keep FSU without a hit until the fourth inning when East hit a one-out double to the wall in right. Korina Rosario, who pinch ran for Powers following a walk, ended up on third. The Noles were kept off the scoreboard as WKU’s Kramer posted a strikeout and induced a pop out to end the inning.

In the Seminole fifth, walks to Cooper and O’Brien, along with a hit-by-pitch to Jessica Warren, loaded the bases for Bailey Schinella with one out. A grounder to WKU second baseman Chaumont scooted under her glove and into right field to score Cooper and Warren and give FSU a 2-1 lead.

A base hit by Klaevemann in the sixth was the only FSU offense for the remainder of the game, but it was all the Seminoles would need. Waldrop improved to 4-0 on the season and finished with 7.0 innings and allowed four hits, one unearned run with three walks and 11 strikeouts. She has recorded at least 11 strikeouts in all three of her starts this season.

WKU’s Kramer (3-2) was just as impressive in the loss, throwing 6.0 innings, allowing just two hits, two runs, one earned with five walks and 15 strikeouts. Kramer now has 58 strikeouts on the season in just 28.0 innings pitched.

“We’re really just trying to figure ourselves out as it is such an early part of the season,” added Alameda. “It was really good to see Jessica get the full seven innings and Lacey also pitched great for us as well. I know our offense will come around, but it is always good to have pitchers like that in the circle.”

Seminoles Drop Two in Top 10 Matchup.
No. 5 Florida State fell to No. 7 Michigan in a pair of one-run games, 6-5 and 2-1, on Saturday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – In a rematch of the 2014 NCAA Tallahassee Super Regional, No. 5 Florida State (6-3) and No. 7 Michigan (7-1) played a doubleheader that showed why they are two of the top teams in the country. The Wolverines recorded two one-run victories over the Seminoles – 6-5 in game one and 2-1 in game two.

“We are playing the month of February trying to get better every pitch and I couldn’t be more proud of how this team fought today,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “Losing six seniors, we are still trying to find our identity and learn what we’ve got out there.

“Michigan is a great program with many returners that have experience in games and situations like this. We’re building that for ourselves and the fight that this team showed being one pitch away at the end in both games will only help us moving forward.”

In game one, Michigan scored twice in the second inning as an RBI triple to right center by Kelsey Susalla scored Lauren Sweet to give Michigan a 1-0 lead. A pop fly behind third base a batter later was dropped by Jessica Warren, allowing Susalla to score from third.

The Wolverines extended their lead to 3-0 in the top of the third inning on a solo home run to left center by Sierra Romero.

FSU got one back in the bottom of the third after Macey Cheatham led off the inning with a single up the middle. She came in to score two batters later on an RBI double to left center by Maddie O’Brien.

Bailey Schinella followed with her second base hit of the game to put runners on the corners with one away. However, both would be stranded after a pop out and a ground out. Schinella finished game one with a career-high three hits.

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs allowed a leadoff walk to Sweet to open the fourth inning. The Wolverine moved over to third on two wild pitches and scored later in the inning on a single to center by Abby Ramirez to give U-M a 4-1 lead.

Morgan Klaevemann started the FSU fourth with a slap single to the second baseman and ended up on second base after a throwing error by U-M’s Ramirez. An infield single by Alex Kossoff and an RBI bunt single by Ellie Cooper brought Klaevemann in to score and cut the lead to 4-2.

Later in the inning, a sacrifice bunt by Cheatham was followed by an RBI groundout by Warren to make it a 4-3 ballgame. O’Brien stepped to the plate with a runner on third and gave the Noles a 5-4 lead with a two-run blast to center, her first home run of the season.

Lacey Waldrop came in to relieve Burroughs to start the fifth inning. Burroughs ended the first game with 4.0 innings pitched, five hits, four runs, three earned, with one walk and zero strikeouts.

Michigan started off the sixth inning with a walk by Kelly Christner and a single by Romero. One wild pitch moved both runners up a base and a second wild pitch by Waldrop brought Christner in to score and tie the game at 5-5. A two-out single by Sweet later in the inning brought in Romero to put Michigan back on top, 6-5.

Sara Driesenga relieved starter Haylie Wagner to start the FSU fifth inning as Wagner earned the 4.0 inning victory and improved to 2-1 on the season. She allowed 10 hits and five runs without allowing a walk and recorded four strikeouts.

The Noles had several chances to tie the game down the stretch, getting multiple runners on base in each of the final three innings. Kossoff and Cooper each had singles in the fifth, Warren singles and Powers walked in the sixth, and Klaevemann singled and Cooper reached on a fielder’s choice in the seventh.

Klaevemann and Cooper were on second and third with one out in the seventh when Michigan brought in pitcher Megan Betsa. She struck out Amy Szymanowski and got Warren to pop out to right to end the game for her first save of the season.

Waldrop (4-1) took the loss in game one after allowing two runs in 3.0 innings with two hits, one walk and two strikeouts.

Betsa started game two in the circle for U-M and picked up right where she left off as the sophomore pitcher did not allow an FSU base hit until the fifth inning. The Seminoles had managed just three baserunners over the first four innings on three walks.

Michigan used a two-run inning in the third to take the lead. A pair of singles and an intentional walk to Romero loaded the bases with one out in the inning. The Noles nearly ended the threat after a force out at home, but a two-out, two-run single to right by Sweet gave the Wolverines the lead. Seven of the eight Michigan runs scored over both games came with two outs in the inning.

Kossoff led off the Seminole fifth with a triple to center for FSU’s first hit of the game. She came in to score, and cut the lead to 2-1, on the next pitch as a beautiful bunt by Cooper through the drawn in defense went for a base hit.

FSU threatened in the seventh of game two as well, placing the winning run on base after two-out walks by Cooper and Rylan Harvey, but a groundout to third by Warren would end the game and give Michigan the 2-1 victory.

Betsa improved to 3-0 on the season with the win, allowing two hits, one run and six walks in 7.0 innings along with five strikeouts.

Waldrop (4-2) scattered seven hits over seven innings, and allowed just two runs in the loss. She walked one and recorded four strikeouts.

02/15/2015, TALLAHASSEE, FL, Unconquered Invitational

No. 5 FSU Defeats No. 20 Nebraska To Close Unconquered Invitational.
The Seminoles posted a 3-2 victory over the Cornhuskers on Sunday at JoAnne Graf Field.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The Florida State softball team (7-3) posted its third win over a ranked team of the young 2015 season with a 3-2 victory over No. 20 Nebraska (4-6) on Sunday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field. The Seminoles defeated the Huskers on February 13 by a score of 4-1, and also took down No. 6 Kentucky, 3-2, on February 7.

“Sunday games can often be difficult because of the physical and emotional toll of the tournament weekend, but I was glad with how we came through in big situations and got the win,” head coach Lonni Alameda said.

Nebraska got on the board right away as Kiki Stokes led off the game with a solo home run to centerfield of Seminole starter Jessica Burroughs.

Alex Powers gave the Noles the lead in the bottom of the first on a three-run home run to centerfield. It was her third home run of the season and scored Maddie O’Brien and Bailey Schinella who started the inning with walks.

Lacey Waldrop came in to relieve Burroughs to start the Nebraska third inning. Burroughs finished with 2.0 innings pitched, allowing just two hits, one run with two walks and one strikeout.

The game remained scoreless until the top of the sixth inning when Nebraska cut the lead to 3-2. NU’s Stephanie Pasquale led off the inning with a single and was pinch run for by Gina Metzler. Metzler moved up to third following a walk and a fielder’s choice and would come into score on a wild pitch by Waldrop.

Nebraska continued to threaten in the sixth, loading the bases with one out on two more walks from Waldrop. Schinella took over in the circle for FSU and induced an infield fly to third by Stokes and recorded a strikeout to Alicia Armstrong to get out of the jam.

Schinella pitched a perfect seventh to secure the victory for Florida State and earn her first save of the season. It was her fifth career save, moving her into a tie for sixth place with Lacey Waldrop on the FSU all-time list.

Waldrop (5-2) earned the win in relief, throwing 3.1 innings with four hits, one run, three walks and six strikeouts.

Nebraska starter Kaylan Jablonski took the loss and went to 0-2 on the season. She finished with 5.0 innings pitched with three hits, three runs and five walks with one strikeout.

“It was great to see Bailey come in and show everyone what she’s been working on all fall,” added Alameda. “And that’s been a focus of this team – the next person, next pitch mentality where every player has each other’s back and can come up and execute in pressure situations.”

Seminoles Split On Day One Of Mary Nutter Classic.
No. 8 Florida State defeats South Carolina, 4-3 in 10 innings, and fell to No. 13 Tennessee, 4-1.

CATHEDRAL CITY, CA - The Florida State softball team (8-4) opened the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic with a pair of games on February 19 at the Big League Dreams Complex in Cathedral City, Calif. The No. 8 Seminoles lost to No. 13 Tennessee (11-0), 4-1, to start the day and ended with a 4-3 victory in 10 innings over South Carolina (9-3).

"A split today, when you look at the win and loss columns, is not what we came out here to do," said head coach Lonni Alameda. "But we are definitely responding and getting smarter and better every day we come out on the field."

There was not a lot of offense in the early going for either team in FSU's first game versus Tennessee. Seminole starter Lacey Waldrop recorded four strikeouts in the first four outs of the game and neither team scored until the top of the fourth inning.

Three straight one-out walks allowed by Waldrop loaded the bases which prompted a pitching change. Bailey Schinella came into the circle from right field and issued a walk to the first batter she faced, but got out of the inning with a strikeout and a foul out as Tennessee took a 1-0 lead after four innings.

Waldrop (5-3) finished with 3.1 innings pitched, allowed zero hits, one run with three walks and six strikeouts.

Even after taking the lead, the Volunteers didn't get their first hit until the fifth inning after a Meghan Gregg single up the middle. Gregg came into score later in the inning on a sacrifice fly by Annie Aldrete. Tennessee scored one run each in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings to take a 4-0 lead into the FSU half of the seventh.

The Seminoles had only managed two base hits over the first six frames - a single by Jessica Warren in the second and a double by Alex Powers in the fourth. Warren registered her second hit of the game as she led off the bottom of the seventh with a triple off the wall in center.

Two batters later, an RBI infield single by Morgan Klaevemann brought in Warren and cut the lead to 4-1. The final two Seminole batters would be retired to end the game.

Tennessee's Erin Gabriel improved to 4-0 on the season with the complete game victory. She allowed just four hits, one run, one walk and recorded six strikeouts.

Schinella finished the game in the circle for FSU and pitched 3.2 innings with six hits, three runs, four walks and posted two strikeouts.

In the second game of the day, South Carolina jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning as FSU pitcher Jessica Burroughs allowed two walks and two singles in the frame.

The Florida State offense got going in the third inning as Ellie Cooper started off with an infield single to the second baseman. A throwing error by Gamecock first baseman Kaylea Snaer allowed Cooper to move up to second on a batted ball by Korina Rosario. Klaevemann followed with a walk to load the bases for Florida State.

Maddie O'Brien cut the lead to 2-1 with a bases loaded walks and Powers would tie the game at 2-2 later in the inning with a sacrifice fly to right to score Klaevemann.

Florida State threatened in the fifth as a single by O'Brien and a two-out walk by Powers put two Seminoles on base, but both were left stranded after a groundout to third by Warren.

Burroughs allowed just three total baserunners from the second through the sixth innings, giving up a walk and two singles. South Carolina opened the seventh inning with a single and an FSU fielding error put two Gamecocks on base with one out. A ground out and a strikeout ended the frame to keep the game tied at 2-2.

The Seminoles went down in order in the seventh inning to force extras. The Mary Nutter Classic uses the international tiebreaker procedure, where a runner is placed on second base to start each extra inning.

South Carolina started the eighth with Jordan Bizzell at second and a groundout to Warren moved her up to third base with one out. Julie Sarratt blooped a single that fell in to left field just beyond the diving glove of O'Brien and gave the Gamecocks a 3-2 lead in extra innings.

The Noles started their half of the eighth with Lauren Harris at second base. Following a strikeout by Powers, Warren took the first pitch she saw and drove it to the wall in right center for an RBI double to tie the game at 3-3. Victoria Daddis would walk later in the inning, but Cooper grounded out to the shortstop to retire the side.

After a scoreless ninth for South Carolina, Florida State looked to take the win in the bottom of the frame. Cooper started the inning on second and was moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by Alex Kossoff.

Klaevemann, the next batter, grounded to the second baseman and as the throw went to first, Cooper dashed for home. The first baseman caught the ball to retire Klaevemann and fired home to narrowly get Cooper at the plate to complete the double play and end the inning.

In the 10th, South Carolina moved the initial runner to third on a sacrifice bunt, but a pop our and a groundout would leave them stranded.

For Florida State in the 10th, Klaevemann began the inning at second and O'Brien led off at the plate with an intentional walk. Schinella then hit into a fielder's choice at short to retire Klaevemann at third. A walk to Powers loaded the bases for Warren who walked on six pitches to bring in the winning run.

Burroughs improved to 3-1 on the season and earned the complete game as she pitched a career-high 10.0 innings and scattered six hits, three runs, two earned with three walks and five strikeouts.

South Carolina's Nickie Blue (5-1) earned her first loss of the season as she pitched 9.1 innings and gave up five hits, four runs, one earned with eight walks and five strikeouts.

"Jessica Burroughs pitched great today, Bailey Schinella came in at a big time for us in the circle in game one and Jessica Warren had a great day at the plate," added Alameda. "But it is all about the team right now and figuring it out. We'll get after it out here tomorrow and see what we are all about."

FSU Takes Down Oklahoma State.
No. 8 Seminoles defeated the Cowgirls, 4-1, at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic on Friday night.

CATHEDRAL CITY, CA – The Florida State softball team (9-4) won its second game of the 2015 Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic with a 4-1 victory over Oklahoma State (3-6) on Friday night at the Big League Dreams Complex in Cathedral City, Calif.

“We came out and played our style of Seminole softball tonight and it was a lot of fun to see,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “We were loose in the dugout and on the field and trusted in the process and got the win. Lacey pitched another great game for us and we had numerous people step up at the plate in big spots. One more day for us out here against two quality teams and I know we will be up for the challenge.”

The game was tied until the fourth inning as Jessica Warren started off the frame with a single to center. Amy Szymanowski followed two batters later with a single of her own and ended up on second as Oklahoma State tried to make a play on Warren at third.

After a fielder’s choice to the pitcher by Ellie Cooper that retired Warren at the plate, freshman Korina Rosario drove a single back up the middle to score Szymanowski and Cooper and give Florida State a 2-0 lead.

Lacey Waldrop had retired the first 10 batters she faced until Shianne Hughes hit a single through the left side with one out in the fourth. She stole second a batter later and came into score on an infield single to second by Danielle Riddle. The ball went off the end of her bat and spun away from Cooper, allowing the run to score and make it 2-1 Florida State.

The Seminoles added to their lead in the sixth as Szymanowski walked on four pitches and was pinch run for by Macey Cheatham. Cooper then placed a perfect bunt over the head of Oklahoma State pitcher Whitney Whitehorn for an infield single.

Korina Rosario laid down a sacrifice bunt to move the runners to second and third for pinch-hitter Victoria Daddis. Daddis blasted a 0-1 pitch off the wall in centerfield for a two-run triple to make it 4-1 Florida State.

Waldrop allowed just two runners to reach base until the bottom of the seventh as Vanessa Shippy led off the inning with a double to right. A walk and an FSU fielding error loaded the bases with one out for the Cowgirls. Waldrop showed strength under pressure as she posted two straight strikeouts to end the game and secure the win.

Waldrop (6-3) finished with 7.0 innings pitched and allowed just three hits, one run, one walk and recorded 10 strikeouts. She tossed only 81 pitches in the complete game victory.

Whitehorn took the loss for Oklahoma State and fell to 0-4 on the season. She allowed eight hits and four runs in 7.0 innings with two walks and three strikeouts.

FSU Earns Fourth Ranked Win Of Season On Day Three Of Mary Nutter Classic.
The No. 8 Seminoles take down No. 12 UCLA, 5-1, and fall to No. 20 Cal, 7-6.

CATHEDRAL CITY, CA – The No. 8 Florida State softball team (10-5) closed out the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic with a 5-1 win over No. 12 UCLA at the Big League Dreams Complex on Saturday. The Seminoles gave up seven runs in the seventh inning of the first game of the day versus No. 20 Cal (12-0) in a 7-6 defeat to the Golden Bears.

“This weekend was great for us,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “We were put in pressure situations and we had a lot of character building experiences. There were some failures and there were many successes. I am proud of how we never gave up and are learning how to play through adversity.

“It feels like we’ve played through a season’s worth of emotions in the first 15 games, but I know we will be better for it at the end of the season.”

The Seminole offense was active from the get go versus Cal as Maddie O’Brien and Jessica Warren each registered base hits in the first inning. In the FSU half of the second, Ellie Cooper ripped a single to right and Morgan Klaevemann reached on a walk as O’Brien came to the plate for her second at bat of the game.

The redshirt senior got down 0-2 in the count before she blasted a shot to straightaway centerfield for a three-run home run to give the Seminoles a 3-0 lead after an inning and a half. O’Brien ended the game with three hits, tying a career high, three RBI and a runs scored.

Alex Powers extended the Florida State lead to 4-0 in the fifth inning as she lifted the first pitch of her at bat over the wall in left center for a solo home run.

Cooper added single up the middle in the sixth inning to give her three on the day. Her three base hits matched a career high that she set against North Dakota State on February 15, 2014.

Cal threatened in the sixth inning, putting runners on the corners with nobody out after a pair of walks and a wild pitch from Seminole starter Lacey Waldrop. Jessica Burroughs entered the circle and got out of the jam by retiring all three batters she faced in the sixth on a pop out, groundout and a strikeout.

Waldrop finished with 5.0 innings of shutout softball, allowing just two hits and five walks while striking out one.

Florida State scored two more runs in the top of the seventh as Bailey Schinella led off the frame by reaching on an error to the shortstop. Warren dropped a single into right and ended up on second as Cal tried to make a play on Schinella at third. Powers followed with a two-RBI single to right to extend the FSU lead to 6-0.

The Golden Bears would not go down without a fight in the bottom of the seventh inning as Cal brought nine batters to the plate in the frame. After a leadoff strikeout, Cal got its third hit of the game on a single to right by Bailey O’Mara.

Jazmyn Jackson followed a batter later with a line shot down into the left field corner. It took a strange hop off the wall and got away from Korina Rosario and enabled Jackson to score on an inside the park home run and cut the lead to 6-2.

A single and a walk put two more Golden Bears on base, but Burroughs battled back to get a strikeout for the second out of the inning. A walk to Danielle Henderson loaded the bases and a wild pitch brought in a run and made it 6-3 Florida State.

Burroughs worked the count to 1-2 on the next batter, Breana Kostreba, and the Cal batter fouled one down the right field line just out of the reach of Powers. She then hit a single back up the middle to score two runs and cut the lead to one at 6-5 Florida State.

Kobie Pettis ended the game in the next at bat as she hit a two-run walk-off home run to right field to give Cal the 7-6 victory.

Burroughs (3-2) took the loss after throwing 1.2 innings, giving up five hits, seven runs with two walks and three strikeouts.

Cal pitcher Stephanie Trzcinski picked up the win and moved to 5-0 after allowing 12 hits, six runs, four earned with three walks and three strikeouts in the complete-game victory.

In the second game of the day versus UCLA, the Seminoles took a 1-0 lead in the first inning as Warren hit a double to right and came in to score a batter later on a single to right by Powers.

FSU pushed the lead to 2-0 in the third as O’Brien led off with a single and walks to Warren and Schinella loaded the bases. Victoria Daddis hit into an RBI fielder’s choice to the shortstop to plate O’Brien for the second FSU run of the game.

Waldrop started off on fire in the circle for the Seminoles. She struck out the first four batters she faced and allowed just one base runner in the first three frames while recording seven strikeouts.

UCLA got on the board in the bottom of the fourth inning after Stephany LaRosa hit a double to center and came in to score later in the inning on an RBI single by Kylee Perez to make it 2-1 FSU after four full innings.

The Warren/Powers combination came through again in the fifth inning as a single by Warren and a double by Powers in the left centerfield gap made it 3-1 Florida State.

Schinella came to the plate next and had a quality at bat as she sat on a 1-2 changeup and drove it the other way to right field for an RBI single to score Katie Baker from second, who pinch ran for Powers.

The Noles added one more in the seventh inning as a walk to Warren and singles by Schinella and Victoria East extended the lead to 5-1 Florida State.

Lacey Waldrop (6-3) pitched beautifully in the complete game victory. She allowed just three hits over 7.0 innings, gave up one run and recorded 10 strikeouts without surrendering a walk.

Ally Carda (6-2) finished with 5.0 innings pitched, giving up six hits, four runs with two walks and three strikeouts in the loss.

Florida State Shuts Out Boston College In ACC Opener.
The No. 12 Seminoles blank the Eagles, 5-0.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 12 Florida State (11-5, 1-0 ACC) allowed just three baserunners to Boston College (11-4, 0-1 ACC) and went on to win by a score of 5-0 in game one of a scheduled doubleheader on February 28. The Seminoles have recorded 10 consecutive wins in regular season ACC games.

The second game of the doubleheader was suspended in the top of the third inning with the game tied at 1-1. Game two will resume at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 1 with game three following 30 minutes later.

“It was a cold, rainy and breezy night but we played through it and came out with a win against a quality conference opponent,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “Lacey was locked in tonight. She didn’t give them much to hit, and what they did get their bats on was covered by our defense.

“No one likes having to suspend a game, but it was the best decision for us tonight. We’ll be ready to go tomorrow to finish out game two and get after it in game three.”

Florida State jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning as Jessica Warren hit a two-run home run, her third of the season, to left field to score Maddie O’Brien who led off the game with a walk. It marked the seventh time this season that the Seminoles have scored in the opening frame.

The Seminoles loaded the bases in the third inning on a two-out walk by Amy Szymanowski and singles by Alex Kossoff and Morgan Klaevemann. FSU was unable to bring them in as O’Brien ended the inning on a fly out to left center.

Waldrop retired the first nine batters of the game before allowing a base hit to Megan Cooley to start the fourth inning. Waldrop (8-3) pitched the first 5.0 innings, earning the win after eliminating 15 of the 16 batters she faced. She recorded six strikeouts without surrendering a walk.

Warren started off the fourth inning with a single to left and moved up to second as Alex Powers reached on a fielder’s choice. Bailey Schinella stepped to the plate a batter later and drove a 2-2 pitch to the wall in left center for a bases-clearing double and extended the FSU lead to 4-0.

After a single by Victoria East, Schinella came in to score later in the inning and made it 5-0 Florida State following a sacrifice fly to right field by Victoria Daddis.

Schinella ended the game in the circle for the Seminoles, pitching 2.0 shutout innings without giving up a hit. She allowed one walk and recorded two strikeouts.

The game ended on an outstanding defensive play by Alex Kossoff and Jessica Warren. With one out and a runner on second base in the Boston College seventh, Taylor Coroneos lifted a ball down the left field line that Kossoff chased down for the second out of the inning. Attempting to tag from second, BC’s Annie Murphy was thrown out at third on a perfect throw from Kossoff to a waiting Warren.

In game two, Boston College got on the board first as Cooley led off the game with an infield single. She stole second and moved to third on a ground out. Following a strikeout, Cooley came in to score on a wild pitch by FSU starter Jessica Burroughs.

The Seminoles tied the game in the bottom of the second as Schinella walked and advanced to second on a groundout. Kossoff hit a two-out grounder to the circle, but BC’s Allyson Frei threw the ball over Jordan Weed’s head at first base, allowing Schinella to come in to score and tie the game at 1-1.

Noles Take Two Over BC To Complete Series Sweep.
No. 12 Florida State defeated Boston College, 2-1 and 5-1, on Sunday at JoAnne Graf Field.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 12 Florida State (13-5, 3-0 ACC) wrapped up the three-game series against Boston College (11-6, 0-3 ACC) with a pair of wins on Sunday at JoAnne Graf Field. The Seminoles defeated the Eagles, 2-1, in a game that resumed in the third inning after a rain delay on Saturday, and then earned a 5-1 victory in game three later in the afternoon.

Florida State wore special jerseys on Sunday as part of its Salute Sunday initiative to honor current and former military members for their service during home games throughout the month of March. Capt. Bobby Francis, a Navy veteran, was on hand to throw out the first pitch.

“To start off the ACC season with a sweep at home on the weekend was huge for us,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “We knew (Allyson) Frei would come in and hit her spots and we were going to be challenged offensively. Three big wins for us and now we get to battle five teams out of conference before coming back to play a quality Notre Dame team.”

After restarting Saturday’s game two in the top of the third inning, Boston College threatened in the fourth inning after loading the bases with one out on a walk by Tatiana Cortez, a throwing error by Jessica Burroughs and a base hit by Madison Paulson.

Burroughs and the Noles were able to get out of the inning after the redshirt sophomore pitcher was able to record two consecutive strikeouts.

FSU grabbed the lead in the fifth inning after Morgan Klaevemann reached on an infield single and advanced to second on a throwing error by BC second baseman Chloe Sharabba.

Walks to Rylan Harvey and Maddie O’Brien loaded the bases for Jessica Warren who was hit on the elbow on a 1-1 pitch to score Klaevemann from third and give the Noles a 2-1 lead.

That would be all the offense FSU would need as Burroughs (4-2) picked up the win, closing out the complete-game victory. She gave up three hits, one run and four walks while recording nine strikeouts.

BC’s Allyson Frei (9-4) earned the loss after tossing 6.0 innings with three hits, two runs, one earned along with five walks and four strikeouts.

In the final game of the series, Boston College used several Florida State miscues to bring in a run in the top of the first. After a leadoff single from Cooley, she stole second base and moved to third on a fielding error by Alex Powers.

On the third strike to Madison Paulson for the first out of the inning, Amy Szymanowski’s throw to second on a steal attempt by Annie Murphy sailed high and into centerfield to score Cooley and give BC a 1-0 lead.

Three straight base hits by Victoria East, Victoria Daddis and Amy Szymanowski to start off the second inning tied the game at 1-1. A sacrifice bunt by Alex Kossoff moved the runners to second and third.

Boston College made a nice play on a slap hit from Morgan Klaevemann, gunning down Daddis at the plate for out number two. Klaevemann quickly stole second base and a throwing error from Eagle catcher Cortez allowed Szymanowski to score easily.

The Seminoles made it 3-1 after the third inning behind walks from Powers and Szymanowski. Lauren Harris came in to pinch run for Powers and scored on an infield single from Kossoff that was thrown out of play by BC’s Frei.

Kossoff finished 2-for-3 from the plate and Szymanowski also had a multi-hit afternoon recording two singles, driving in a run and scoring one as well.

After allowing the first two runners on a single and a fielding error to start the first inning, FSU starter Lacey Waldrop shut down the next 14 Boston College batters in order, recording seven strikeouts over that stretch.

O’Brien extended Florida State’s lead in both the fourth and the fifth inning as the redshirt senior led off the FSU fourth with a solo home run to centerfield to make it 4-1. She added a sacrifice fly to right field in the fifth inning to push the Seminole lead to 5-1.

O’Brien finished with two walks in the game, increasing her career total to 144. She is now tied with Jessica van der Linden (2001-04) for the most career walks in Florida State history.

Waldrop (9-3) picked up the win in the complete-game victory, allowing just three hits with one unearned run and one walk over 7.0 innings. She recorded nine strikeouts to push her season total to 94.

Seminoles Post Two Run-Rule Victories On Day One Of FAU Tournament.
No. 11/12 Florida State earns wins over Coastal Carolina (9-0 in five inn) and Bethune-Cookman (12-0 in five inn) on Friday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Program and personal records were set by several Seminoles on Friday as No. 11 Florida State (15-5) earned wins over Coastal Carolina (11-9) and Bethune-Cookman (4-16) on Friday. The Noles posted two run-rule victories as they took down the Chanticleers 9-0 in five innings and followed that up with a 12-0 victory in five innings over the Wildcats. Lacey Waldrop recorded a no-hitter in game one, while FSU recorded four home runs in a rout in game two.

“This was a complete team today,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “Up and down the lineup, in the circle, pinch hitters and runners, they all played for each other and were successful together. It is a fun team to coach and watch when everything gets rolling on both offense and defense.”

Maddie O’Brien set a Florida State record in her first plate appearance against Coastal Carolina as the senior drew a walk on four pitches. It was the 145th walk of her career, passing Jessica van der Linden (2001-04) for the most in Seminole history.

Florida State had a big inning in the second which opened with Ellie Cooper being hit with a pitch for the fifth time this season. Walks to Victoria East and Morgan Klaevemann loaded the bases with two outs for Jessica Warren.

Warren blasted a 1-0 pitch into the gap in right center field for a three-RBI double. A throwing error as the Chanticleers were bringing the ball back into the infield went out of play to score Warren and give FSU a 4-0 lead.

East had a career day at the plate, knocking a pair of two-RBI doubles in the third and fourth innings. She finished 2-for-2 with a walk and four RBI. Her four runs batted in set a career-high and she now has five hits in her last 11 at-bats.

Ellie Cooper drove in the other Seminole run on a sacrifice fly in the fourth. She also finished with a stolen base and a sacrifice bunt.

Lacey Waldrop was dominant from the circle in game one, carrying a perfect game into the fifth inning. She surrendered a one-out walk to Morgan Noad and she proved to be the only baserunner for the Chanticleers as a pop out and ground out ended the game.

Waldrop (10-3) recorded her seventh career no-hitter and second of the 2015 season. She extended her streak of not allowing an earned run to 20.1 innings over four games, dating back to the UCLA game on February 21.

The Chester, Va., native recorded four strikeouts over 5.0 innings, giving up just one walk as she retired 15 of the 16 batters she faced.

It was an impressive display of power for Florida State in the second game of the day versus Bethune-Cookman. The Seminoles scored their first four runs on solo home runs by Amy Szymanowski and Warren in the third inning and Alex Powers and Bailey Schinella in the fourth inning.

The offense continued in the fourth inning as Florida State scored seven runs in the inning and brought 12 batters to plate. The Noles drew five walks and five base hits in the inning, including RBI bases-loaded walks to Powers and O’Brien as well as an RBI single by Schinella.

The Noles added three more runs in the fifth inning on triples by Korina Rosario and O’Brien, a double from Cooper and a walk by Warren. Cooper tied a career high with three hits against the Wildcats, drove in two RBI and scored two runs.

Apart from a first inning where Bethune-Cookman registered two base runners on a single and a fielding error, Jessica Burroughs was nearly perfect in the circle as the FSU starter.

She retired 12 in a row until allowing a single with one out in the fifth to Bryanna Campos. Katie Baker ended the game defensively for the Noles a batter later as she fielded a grounder at second, tagged Campos and fired to first to end the inning and the game.

Burroughs improved to 5-2 on the season in the complete game victory as she recorded five strikeouts, zero walks and gave up just two hits.

Seminoles Post Two Run-Rule Victories On Day One Of FAU Tournament.
No. 11/12 Florida State earns wins over Coastal Carolina (9-0 in five inn) and Bethune-Cookman (12-0 in five inn) on Friday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Program and personal records were set by several Seminoles on Friday as No. 11 Florida State (15-5) earned wins over Coastal Carolina (11-9) and Bethune-Cookman (4-16) on Friday. The Noles posted two run-rule victories as they took down the Chanticleers 9-0 in five innings and followed that up with a 12-0 victory in five innings over the Wildcats. Lacey Waldrop recorded a no-hitter in game one, while FSU recorded four home runs in a rout in game two.

“This was a complete team today,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “Up and down the lineup, in the circle, pinch hitters and runners, they all played for each other and were successful together. It is a fun team to coach and watch when everything gets rolling on both offense and defense.”

Maddie O’Brien set a Florida State record in her first plate appearance against Coastal Carolina as the senior drew a walk on four pitches. It was the 145th walk of her career, passing Jessica van der Linden (2001-04) for the most in Seminole history.

Florida State had a big inning in the second which opened with Ellie Cooper being hit with a pitch for the fifth time this season. Walks to Victoria East and Morgan Klaevemann loaded the bases with two outs for Jessica Warren.

Warren blasted a 1-0 pitch into the gap in right center field for a three-RBI double. A throwing error as the Chanticleers were bringing the ball back into the infield went out of play to score Warren and give FSU a 4-0 lead.

East had a career day at the plate, knocking a pair of two-RBI doubles in the third and fourth innings. She finished 2-for-2 with a walk and four RBI. Her four runs batted in set a career-high and she now has five hits in her last 11 at-bats.

Ellie Cooper drove in the other Seminole run on a sacrifice fly in the fourth. She also finished with a stolen base and a sacrifice bunt.

Lacey Waldrop was dominant from the circle in game one, carrying a perfect game into the fifth inning. She surrendered a one-out walk to Morgan Noad and she proved to be the only baserunner for the Chanticleers as a pop out and ground out ended the game.

Waldrop (10-3) recorded her seventh career no-hitter and second of the 2015 season. She extended her streak of not allowing an earned run to 20.1 innings over four games, dating back to the UCLA game on February 21.

The Chester, Va., native recorded four strikeouts over 5.0 innings, giving up just one walk as she retired 15 of the 16 batters she faced.

It was an impressive display of power for Florida State in the second game of the day versus Bethune-Cookman. The Seminoles scored their first four runs on solo home runs by Amy Szymanowski and Warren in the third inning and Alex Powers and Bailey Schinella in the fourth inning.

The offense continued in the fourth inning as Florida State scored seven runs in the inning and brought 12 batters to plate. The Noles drew five walks and five base hits in the inning, including RBI bases-loaded walks to Powers and O’Brien as well as an RBI single by Schinella.

The Noles added three more runs in the fifth inning on triples by Korina Rosario and O’Brien, a double from Cooper and a walk by Warren. Cooper tied a career high with three hits against the Wildcats, drove in two RBI and scored two runs.

Apart from a first inning where Bethune-Cookman registered two base runners on a single and a fielding error, Jessica Burroughs was nearly perfect in the circle as the FSU starter.

She retired 12 in a row until allowing a single with one out in the fifth to Bryanna Campos. Katie Baker ended the game defensively for the Noles a batter later as she fielded a grounder at second, tagged Campos and fired to first to end the inning and the game.

Burroughs improved to 5-2 on the season in the complete game victory as she recorded five strikeouts, zero walks and gave up just two hits.

Late Game Rally Carries Florida State Over Hofstra.
The No. 11 Seminoles scored one run each in the sixth and seventh innings to defeat Hofstra, 2-1.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Never giving up until the final out, No. 11 Florida State (16-5) battled through some adversity to post a 2-1 come-from-behind win over Hofstra (7-7) on Saturday in the FAU Parents’ Weekend Tournament. The Noles trailed 1-0 entering the sixth inning, but scored one run each in the sixth and seventh inning to post their seventh straight victory.

“We stress trusting the process and not being caught up in results, and that came up big for us today,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “We had some trouble offensively early on, and credit to Pirone, she pitched a great game for them, hitting her spots and keeping us off balance.

“But we hung in there, battled and knew that if we continued to play Florida State softball, we’d be successful. Jessica Burroughs did a great job in the circle to keep us in it and our hitters produced when it mattered at the end.”

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs recorded three strikeouts in the first inning, but a 3-2 pitch to Hofstra’s Caryn Bailey was hit over the wall in right field for a solo home run to give the Pride an early 1-0 lead.

The Noles struggled offensively recording only one hit through the first five innings after Jessica Warren led off the game with a hit to left field. Florida State was able to get five baserunners in the first two innings by way of two fielding errors, a catcher’s interference, a walk to Alex Powers and Warren’s single, but all would be left stranded.

Hofstra starter Taylor Pirone retired 10 in a row from the second inning until the sixth inning when Maddie O’Brien reached on an error by the first baseman to lead off the inning. Powers followed with a fielder’s choice which retired pinch-runner Bella D’Errico at second. Morgan Klaevemann then entered the game to run for Powers.

Back-to-back singles by Bailey Schinella and Victoria East tied the game as East’s hit to left field scored Klaevemann from second and tied the game at 1-1.

Burroughs settled in after the first inning, pitching around a single in the second and a double in the third to keep Hofstra from extending its lead. The Pride were able to get two runners on in the sixth with a single and a walk, but a line out and a strikeout ended the threat. Burroughs retired the Pride in order in the seventh to set the stage for Florida State.

Alex Kossoff pinch-hit for Lauren Harris and laid down a perfect one-out bunt single to the third baseman. A single by Warren and a hit-by-pitch to Ellie Cooper loaded the bases for O’Brien with one away. O’Brien took the first pitch she saw and dropped it into right centerfield for an RBI single to score Kossoff and give the Seminoles the 2-1 victory.

Burroughs (6-2) earned the complete game victory, surrendering four hits, one run, one walk and recording 11 strikeouts. The 11 strikeouts are the second-highest total of her career, trailing only the 14 punchouts she had against No. 6 Kentucky on February 8, 2015.

Taylor Pirone (3-6) took the loss after an impressive 6.1 innings of work, allowing six hits, two runs, one earned, one walk and three strikeouts.

03/07/2015, BOCA RATON, FL, FAU Tournament

No. 11 Florida State Defeats FAU, 1-0.
The Seminoles take down the Owls on the second day of the FAU Parents’ Weekend Tournament.

BOCA RATON, FL – No. 11 Florida State (17-5) gutted out a 1-0 victory at Florida Atlantic (18-5) on Saturday night as part of the FAU Parents’ Weekend Tournament. The Noles scored in the top of the fifth inning on a throwing error that went out of play, scoring Jessica Warren from second base.

“Great job tonight to play through adversity and grind out a win,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “FAU is a solid team and this can be a tough to play when their fans get into it. I credit our team for not getting down emotionally or letting the outside things affect them.

“You can’t control the crowd, you can’t control the umpires. There are many things in this game that are out of your control, but you can control your focus. You can control your effort and your resolve to stay next pitch and take advantage of the opportunities. And I think we did that tonight.”

There was a lot of action, but not a lot of scoring against the Owls in the early going as the game stayed scoreless until the fifth inning. The Seminoles were able to load the bases with the first three batters of the game on a leadoff single by Warren, a fielding error on a sacrifice bunt by Ellie Cooper and a walk to Maddie O’Brien.

Alex Powers stepped to the plate a batter later and hit a laser to the third baseman Carnesha Thompson who quickly dove into the third base bag to double up Warren. A walk to Bailey Schinella loaded the bases again, but Korina Rosario struck out to end the inning.

FAU starter Kylee Hanson bent but did not break in the early going, allowing three hits and three walks and two runners to reach on fielding errors through 4.0 innings, but kept FSU off the scoreboard. The Noles would strand six runners over that span.

The Seminoles were finally able to break into runs column in the fifth inning as Warren led off the frame with a walk and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Cooper.

O’Brien came to the plate next and lifted a fly ball to centerfield that was caught for out number two of the inning. Warren dashed off of second as though she was going to tag and head to third, prompting the centerfielder Christina Martinez to hurry a throw even though Warren had no intention of going.

The throw bounced in the dirt at the feet of the FAU third baseman Thompson and got away from her, going out of play behind third base. Warren came in to score on the two-base award for the error to give FSU a 1-0 lead.

Lacey Waldrop (11-3) was dominant in the circle, tossing a complete-game shutout, surrendering just two hits and one walk while recording 10 strikeouts. Both singles were infield singles right in front of the plate and Waldrop allowed just four total baserunners.

The Owls threatened in the fourth and fifth innings, getting runners to third base in both frames, but a strikeout and a groundout in the fourth as well as a strikeout in the fifth got the Noles out of the jam and kept FAU off the scoreboard.

FAU’s Hanson took the loss and moved to 6-1 on the season. She allowed five hits and an unearned run, with four hits and seven strikeouts.

Jessica Burroughs Tosses No-Hitter Versus Coastal Carolina.
The redshirt sophomore pitcher earned her first career no-hitter as the No. 11 Seminoles earned an 8-0 win in five innings over Coastal Carolina.

BOCA RATON, FL – For the second time in three days, No. 11 Florida State (18-5) recorded a no-hitter over Coastal Carolina (12-12) as the Seminoles posted an 8-0 victory in five innings over the Chanticleers on the final day of the FAU Parents’ Weekend Tournament. Jessica Burroughs gave up one walk and recorded seven strikeouts as she earned the first no-hitter of her career.

“Nice finish to the weekend for us,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “Jessica pitched great for us to stay focused and control the game. I’m really proud of her and all the work that she has been putting in this season and her whole career.

“We were able to get the offense going the past few games as well, which we will need as we have another tough game here on Tuesday night against FAU.”

The Seminoles loaded the bases in the first inning for the third straight game. The Noles came away with a 1-0 lead after Bailey Schinella lined an RBI single into right field, scoring Jessica Warren who led off the game with a single up the middle. It was the eighth time that FSU has scored in the first inning this season and the Noles are 8-0 in such games.

FSU added two more runs in the third on an RBI single by Alex Powers and a fielder’s choice by Schinella to score Maddie O’Brien.

Seminole starter Jessica Burroughs pitched around errors in the first and second innings and kept Coastal Carolina off the board. Over the final 3.1 innings of the game, Burroughs allowed just one baserunner on a walk in the fourth inning to Kory Hayden.

The Florida State offense recorded only two hits in the fourth inning but scored four runs as the Seminoles drew five walks in the frame. FSU brought 10 batters to the plate in the inning, scoring runs on bases-loaded walks to Schinella and Morgan Klaevemann as well as an RBI single from Amy Szymanowski and a sacrifice fly from Korina Rosario.

Schinella ended the game with a team-high three RBI while Powers and Szymanowski led the team with two hits apiece. O’Brien added to her walk total with three versus the Chanticleers, pushing her season total to 28.

Burroughs (7-2) finished with seven strikeouts, zero hits and one walk over 5.0 innings as she retired 15 of the 18 batters she faced. It marked the third no-hitter for Florida State of the 2015 season.

Waldrop And Burroughs Throw Combined One-Hitter At FAU.
Lacey Waldrop and Jessica Burroughs combined for a one-hit, 12-0 shutout of Florida Atlantic on Tuesday night.

BOCA RATON, FL – In yet another impressive performance, the pitching staff of No. 9 Florida State (19-5) controlled an opponent from start to finish as the Seminoles posted a 12-0 win in six innings over Florida Atlantic (19-6-1).

Lacey Waldrop and Jessica Burroughs combined to throw a one-hitter against the Owls as the Seminole offense exploded in the run-rule victory Tuesday night. Florida Atlantic was receiving votes in this week’s USA Softball and NFCA polls.

“This was a total team win tonight,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “We had hitters come through up and down the lineup and Lacey and JB worked together in the circle to shut them down. What a way to wrap up a spring break road trip as we come home for some big games this week.”

Nine different players scored a run and seven different players registered a hit as the Noles tied a season high with 12 runs scored on 11 hits. A fifth-inning base hit by Florida Atlantic snapped a streak of 13.0 consecutive innings without surrendering a hit for the Seminole pitching staff.

Waldrop (12-3) earned the win with 4.0 innings of nearly perfect softball. She committed a throwing error on grounder by the first batter of the game, but settled in and retired the next 12 batters before being replaced in the fifth inning. She finished with seven strikeouts and did not allow a hit or a walk.

Burroughs came on to pitch the final 2.0 innings for the Noles, allowing just one base hit in the fifth. She recorded one strikeout and did not allow a walk. It marked the fourth time this season that FSU did not give up a walk to an opponent.

Offensively, the Noles scored right away in the first inning on a sacrifice fly from Alex Powers, scoring Ellie Cooper who reached on a walk earlier in the inning.

Amy Szymanowski added to the Seminole lead in the second inning with a towering solo home run to right field on the first pitch of her at bat. It was the second home run of Szymanowski’s career.

FSU steadily increased its lead to 3-0 on back-to-back doubles by Cooper and Maddie O’Brien in the third inning. The double by O’Brien was the 40th of her career, moving her into sole possession of fourth place on the FSU all-time list. A two-RBI double by Jessica Warren in the fourth inning gave Florida State a comfortable 5-0 lead.

The Seminoles put the game out of reach in the sixth inning, scoring seven runs on four hits as FAU committed two errors in the frame. Powers highlighted the offensive onslaught with a two-out grand slam to centerfield. She finished with five RBI to set a career high and pushed her team lead to 23 RBI for the season.

O’Brien drove in a run in the inning as well on a bases-loaded walk. She ended the game batting 2-for-2 with a double, two RBI, two walks and a run scored.

Morgan Klaevemann finished with a team-high three hits, reaching base in every plate appearance without the ball leaving the infield. She tallied two runs scored for the game.

Alex Kossoff came off the bench and batted 2-for-2 with a triple to right field and a bunt single, all in the sixth inning. Cooper ended with a team-high three runs scored to set a career high.

No. 9 Noles Defeat USC Upstate In Game One Of Rain-Shortened DH.
Lacey Waldrop tosses a complete-game shutout over the Spartans as game two was cancelled due to rain.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – After moving up the games to avoid the incoming rain, No. 9 Florida State and USC Upstate managed to only play one game on Thursday afternoon before the weather made conditions unplayable on JoAnne Graf Field.

The Seminoles (20-5) defeated the Spartans (14-4) by a score of 2-0 in game one, which itself was delayed 57 minutes due to rain, and game two was canceled in the first inning.

“A crazy day due to the weather, but a good job for our kids to get the win,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “Working around changing schedules and delays can be difficult, but I think we adjusted well. We were hoping for two today, but ended up with just one against a quality program.”

The Seminoles scored a run in the first on a sac fly from Bailey Schinella to bring in Ellie Cooper who singled earlier in the inning. Florida State is now 10-0 on the season when scoring in the first inning.

Maddie O’Brien extended the lead to 2-0 in the fifth inning on a solo home run to left field. She crushed the first pitch of her at bat over the wall for her fourth home run of the season.

O’Brien and Morgan Klaevemann finished with two hits apiece as the Seminoles registered six in the game.

Lacey Waldrop continued her dominant ways in the circle, limiting the Spartan hitters to just two baserunners in the first 6.1 innings of the game. She gave up a leadoff single in the second, ending a personal streak of 8.2 innings without allowing a hit and retired 15 batters in a row from the second to the seventh inning.

The Spartans threatened in the final frame, putting runners on the corners with one out after a double by Karla Beasley and a single by Kendall Settlemyre. Waldrop settled in and recorded a strikeout and induced a pop out to secure the victory. She finished with nine strikeouts, allowing just three hits and one walk over 7.0 innings.

Waldrop improved to 13-3 with the win and extended her streak to 38.1 consecutive innings without allowing an earned run. She has thrown three straight shutouts and lowered her season ERA to 0.67.

Lexi Shubert (8-4) earned the loss for Upstate, giving up six hits, two runs and three walks over 6.0 innings while recording four strikeouts.

Jessica Warren Carries FSU Offense In Two Wins Over Notre Dame.
No. 9 Florida State defeated Notre Dame, 4-1 and 7-3, in both games of a doubleheader on Saturday at JoAnne Graf Field.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Using late-game heroics in game one and a steady, controlling effort in game two, No. 9 Florida State (22-5, 5-0 ACC) earned a pair of victories over Notre Dame (14-11, 0-5 ACC) on Saturday at JoAnne Graf Field. Freshman Jessica Warren hit a three-run, walk-off home run in the seventh inning in game one as the Seminoles earned a 4-1 victory over the Irish. Florida State added 10 hits in game two as it posted a 7-3 win against Notre Dame to secure the series win.

“Two wins are huge for us and taking the series against any conference foe is important,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “We have a lot of respect for Notre Dame and what they do and will have to play quality softball again tomorrow to be successful.

“Jessica’s had some big responsibilities at the top of the lineup and has done a great job with Coach Wilson and Coach Snider on having a plan and staying true to who she is as a hitter. It is fun to watch her play.”

In game one, Notre Dame opened the scoring in the second inning, sparked by a leadoff double by Emilee Koerner. Koerner moved up to third as a ball four pitch to the next batter, Cassidy Whidden, was wild and went back to the screen.

Whidden stole second base later in the inning and a throwing error from Macey Cheatham went into centerfield, allowing Koerner to score from third.

Florida State managed to tie it up in the bottom of the third inning on an RBI single from Alex Powers to score Warren, who had reached on a fielder’s choice.

The game remained a pitcher’s duel until the very end. FSU starter Lacey Waldrop surrendered just one base hit over the final 4.1 innings of the game, scattering three walks as she kept the Irish off the board.

Rachel Nasland pitched an impressive game for Notre Dame, limiting the Seminoles to just two hits over the first six innings. She had retired 11 Florida State batters in a row from the third inning until the seventh inning.

The Seminoles came to the plate in the seventh with the game tied at 1-1. Back-to-back one-out singles by Alex Kossoff and Morgan Klaevemann put runners on for FSU. A strikeout brought up Warren with two outs, who entered the game leading the team in batting average and hits.

It didn’t take Warren long to end the game as she blasted an 0-1 pitch inside the left field foul pole for a walk-off three-run home run. It was her fifth home run of the season, pushing her into second place on the team with 20 RBI.

Waldrop improved to 14-3 with the complete-game win in the circle, tossing six strikeouts and allowing five hits, four walks and one unearned run over 7.0 innings.

The run she allowed in the second inning ended a streak 30.2 shutout innings, dating back to Boston College on March 1. She maintains her streak of not allowing an earned run to 45.1 innings, lowering her ERA to 0.63 for the season.

Nasland took the loss and moved to 6-6 on the season, allowing four runs, three earned, on five hits with two walks and three strikeouts over 6.2 innings.

Game two started much like game one ended with an extra-base hit by Warren. The freshman third baseman led off the FSU first with a double to right center and ended up on third as the right fielder bobbled the ball.

After a walk to Maddie O’Brien, Warren came in to score on a wild pitch by ND starter Allie Rhodes to make it 1-0 Florida State after one inning. O’Brien had two walks in each game and now has 34 for the season.

The Noles added to their lead in the third, loading the bases on walks to O’Brien and Powers, as well as a single by Bailey Schinella. Victoria East lifted a ball to right field that appeared destined to be an RBI sacrifice fly, but Notre Dame’s Megan Sorlie couldn’t make the catch, allowing not only O’Brien to score, but also Katie Baker on the fielding error, who pinch ran for Powers.

The Noles used five straight hits in the fifth to extend their lead to 7-0 as they brought 10 batters to the plate in the inning. Victoria East started things off with a single to center which was followed by a single from Klaevemann and an RBI double by Amy Szymanowski.

Ellie Cooper laid down a perfect bunt to score Klaevemann, and got herself into a rundown between first and second, allowing Szymanowski to score on the play as well to make it 6-0 Florida State.

A single by Warren prompted Notre Dame to make a pitching change, chasing starter Allie Rhodes from the game. Katie Beriont replaced Rhodes (6-4), who took the loss and finished 4.1 innings pitched, allowing nine hits, seven runs, six earned with five walks and four strikeouts. Berinot pitched the final 1.2 innings and gave up just one hit, walked three and recorded one strikeout.

Walks to Kossoff and Powers later in the fifth loaded the bases for Schinella and she brought in the seventh Seminole run of the game on an RBI walk.

Jessica Burroughs took to the circle for the Noles and allowed just four hits over the first five innings to the Irish, and got out of a bases-loaded jam by throwing out Whidden at the plate on a delayed steal attempt in the fifth.

The Irish scored three runs in the sixth, as Katey Haus and Micaela Arizmendi reached on walks and a three-run home run to left by Whidden plated the only Notre Dame runs of the game.

Schinella came out to pitch a scoreless seventh, replacing Burroughs (8-2) who earned the win after tossing 6.0 innings and giving up five hits, three runs, three walks and recording four strikeouts.

Florida State Shutout By Notre Dame In Series Finale.
Notre Dame’s Rachel Nasland tosses a no-hitter as the Irish defeat Florida State, 12-0 in five innings, on Sunday afternoon.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – For the first time in its last 14 games, the No. 9 Florida State softball team came out on the losing end of a contest as the Seminoles (22-6, 5-1 ACC) were defeated by Notre Dame (15-11, 1-5 ACC) by a score of 12-0 in five innings on Sunday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field. ND’s Rachel Nasland recorded the first no-hitter of her career in the win.

“Hats off to Nasland, they came out and swung the bats and did some good things,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “Nothing to take away from Notre Dame, but we need to take on the challenge of figuring out who we are right now.

“It’s about mentality right now, a between-the-ears mentality and what kind of ball club we want to be. I expect the team to come out with a little more fight on Tuesday. There are a lot of ballgames like this throughout your season that can be turning points, so how we respond this week and how we come together as a team is going to be big.”

Notre Dame took an early lead on Seminole starter Jessica Burroughs as Emilee Koerner hit a triple into the right field corner in the first inning and later scored on an infield ground out.

The Irish added six more runs in the third on four hits along with two Seminole errors to take a 7-0 lead through three innings. Morgan Reed hit a three-run home run in the frame, while Koerner and Micaela Arizmendi added RBI base hits.

Burroughs (8-3) was replaced in the circle to start the fourth inning and took the loss after giving up seven runs, six earned, on five hits over 3.0 innings. She also walked two and recorded two strikeouts.

Bailey Schinella pitched the final 2.0 innings for Florida State, allowing the Irish to score five more runs – four in the fourth and one more in the fifth. Schinella was charged with just three earned runs, and gave up four hits and one walk.

Nasland (7-6) pitched a nearly perfect game for Notre Dame, allowing just two baserunners on a walk to Victoria East in the second inning and a walk to Maddie O’Brien in the fourth. The sophomore pitcher finished with a complete-game shutout and recorded four strikeouts.

The no-hitter was the first by an opposing pitcher against Florida State since May 26, 2013, when Texas’ Blaire Luna tossed a 7.0-inning shutout of the Noles in game two of the NCAA Super Regional.

Solid Team Win As Florida State Downs Colgate.
The No. 10 Seminoles executed on offense, defense and pitching to defeat Colgate, 8-0 in five innings on Tuesday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Behind a 13-strikeout performance by Jessica Burroughs and a 10-hit outburst from the offense at the plate, the No. 10 Florida State softball team (23-6) earned an 8-0 win over Colgate (4-7), in five innings, on March 17 at JoAnne Graf Field.

“It was a fun game for our team tonight, because that’s what softball should be,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “Even if you have a game like Sunday, you can’t let that affect you moving forward and I think we did that today. We played loose, we had fun and played Florida State softball.

“Jessica was great in the circle and showed the hard work she’s been putting in. The hitters did great and were able to have several quality at-bats as they continue to trust the process and the next-pitch mentality.”

Burroughs was dominant from the first pitch as the Raiders did not put a ball in play until the top of the fourth inning when Katie Bushee led off the frame with a base hit through the left side.

The Warner Robins, Ga., native struck out the first seven batters she faced and finished with 13 for the game. It marked the second-highest strikeout total of Burroughs’ career, just behind the 14 punchouts she had in 7.0 innings against Kentucky on February 8, 2015.

Burroughs improved to 8-3 on the season ended the game with 5.0 innings pitched, allowing just two hits and zero walks. Thirteen of the 15 Colgate outs were strikeouts, along with a foul out to first base in the third inning and a fly out to right field in the fourth.

The Seminoles used two big innings at the plate to defeat the Raiders – a three-run second inning and a five-run fifth.

The FSU second started with a walk to Victoria East. She moved to second on a groundout and ended up on third after an infield single from Alex Kossoff. Kossoff later stole second and the throw from Colgate catcher, Mariel Schlaefer, went into centerfield to allow East to score and make it 1-0.

Jessica Warren came to the plate later in the inning and blasted a towering, two-run home run off the coaches video tower in centerfield to push the Seminole lead out to 3-0 after two innings.

Bailey Schinella sparked what would be the final inning as she opened the fifth with a single to right field. Schinella was replaced at first base by pinch-runner, Bella D’Errico. Schinella finished 2-for-3 at the plate as she also added a double in the third inning.

A fielder’s choice by East, a hit-by-pitch to Amy Szymanowski and another infield single from Kossoff loaded the bases for pinch-hitter, Victoria Daddis. Daddis drove a 2-2 pitch to the wall in right center, clearing the bases on a three-RBI double to give Florida State a 6-0 lead.

A walk to Warren allowed Ellie Cooper to end the game in a run-rule as she ripped a two-RBI double to left center, securing the five-inning 8-0 victory for Florida State.

FSU Falls To Troy In Extra Innings.
The Trojans score two in the top of the eighth to record a 6-4 win over Florida State on Wednesday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In a game that lasted three hours on JoAnne Graf Field, No. 10 Florida State (23-7) lost to Troy, 6-4 in eight innings, as the Trojans (17-12) scored three runs in the seventh and two in the eighth to secure the victory.

"We just need to learn how to finish, and that's a characteristic of a good program," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "I thought we had some really good things happen in today's ballgame. Troy's a very scrappy team and put together some quality innings, especially late, to win the game.

"But we have great effort and great attitude right now, and that is something to build on. When we are able to put it all together and go seven innings, we're going have something really special."

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs was unhittable through the first four innings of the game, recording 10 strikeouts over that span to start the game. Combined with her start against Colgate on March 17, Burroughs had posted 23 strikeouts over her last 9.0 innings pitched.

The Noles got on the board in the second as Bailey Schinella led off the inning with a single to centerfield. Alex Powers stepped the plate next and quickly made it 2-0 Florida State with a home run to left center. It was the seventh home run of the season for Powers.

Troy cut the lead to 2-1 FSU in the top of the fifth by earning its first base hit on a solo home run by Becca Hartley to start the inning.

Florida State pushed back for a 3-1 advantage in the bottom of the fifth as Bella D'Errico came into score on an RBI fielder's choice by Schinella. D'Errico ran for Maddie O'Brien after a walk and reached third on a single to center by Ellie Cooper.

Troy threatened in the sixth inning by getting the first two batters on base via a walk by Kate Benton and a single by Hannah Day. Following Burroughs' 11th strikeout of the game, a deep shot to right center by Ashley Rainey appeared destined for extra bases but Lauren Harris was able to make a spectacular catch, crashing into the wall for out number two. Burroughs ended the inning with another strikeout.

Florida State made it 4-1 in the bottom of the sixth inning as Jessica Warren, who had reached earlier in the inning on a fielder's choice, scored on a passed ball by Troy catcher Heather Johnston.

The Trojans were able to tie it up at 4-4 in the top of the seventh inning on a three-run home run by Affeldt as each of the first three batters reached base and came in to score.

The Seminoles had a chance to win it in the bottom of the seventh after Powers ripped a double into the corner in left field to start the inning. She was pinch-run for by Katie Baker and Baker moved up to third on a sacrifice bunt by Alex Kossoff. Amy Szymanowski came on to pinch hit and grounded one to the second baseman, Hartley, who threw home to retire Baker for out number two. A pop out by Macey Cheatham ended the rally and forced extra innings.

Burroughs was able to retire the first two Trojans batters in the eighth, but was replaced by Bailey Schinella in the circle after a walk. Troy's Hartley hit a full-count pitch from Schinella over the wall in left to give the Trojans a 6-4 lead. It was Hartley's second home run of the game and fifth of the season.

Troy starter Affeldt retired Florida State in order in the bottom of the eighth to secure the win. Affeldt moved to 9-4 on the season, allowing five hits, four runs, three earned with eight walks and seven strikeouts.

Burroughs (9-4) took the loss for Florida State, surrendering five runs, four earned on four hits with three walks and 13 strikeouts in 7.2 innings. It marked the second consecutive game that Burroughs has registered 13 strikeouts in a game.

Two Seventh-Inning Rallies Lifts Noles Over Hokies.
Forcing extra innings with a one-run seventh in game one and a four-run seventh in game two, the No. 10 Seminoles earned a pair of eight-inning wins over No. 25 Virginia Tech, 7-5 and 7-6.

BLACKSBURG, VA – Trailing in each game of the doubleheader entering the seventh inning at Virginia Tech, Florida State scored just enough each time to force an extra frame, plating one run in game one and four runs in game two. The No. 10 Seminoles (25-7, 7-1 ACC) would go on to win game one, 7-5 in eight innings, and would defeat the No. 25 Hokies (22-5, 3-4 ACC) by a score of 7-6 in eight innings in game two.

“Great fight and finish out of our team today,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “It didn’t matter the situation, whether at the plate or in the field, we played for each other and fought until the final out. Getting a pair of ranked wins on the road against quality team like Virginia Tech can be a turning point for us this season. We never gave up and trusted in what we could do with the next pitch, not worrying about what had happened before.”

Virginia Tech got on the board in game one with a pair of runs in the third inning after leading off the inning with two walks by Lauren Gaskill and Kylie McGoldrick. A sacrifice bunt moved them both into scoring position and each came into score on back-to-back base hits by Kelsey Mericka and Michelle Prong.

The Seminoles were able to crack the run column in the top of the sixth inning with a two-out, two-run home run by Maddie O’Brien. Jessica Warren was hit by a pitch earlier in the inning and O’Brien tied the game by blasting a 3-2 pitch over the wall in left centerfield.

Virginia Tech fought right back in the bottom of the sixth as Breanna Davenport hit a single to right and Gaskill was able to reach on a throwing error by Waldrop. Florida State elected to load the bases with an intentional walk to McGoldrick. Katey Smith gave Virginia Tech a 3-2 lead with an RBI groundout to the second baseman.

The Seminoles rallied to tie the game at 3-3 in the top of the seventh as Bailey Schinella drew a leadoff walk and Bella D’Errico came on the pinch run for the senior utility player.

A sacrifice bunt from Ellie Cooper moved D’Errico up to second base and she came in to score a batter later on a pinch-hit double to the wall in centerfield by Victoria Daddis.

The Hokies threatened in the bottom of the seventh as Prong led off the inning with a walk. Prong moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and later to third on a passed ball. That’s as far as she would go as Waldrop ended the inning with a pair of strikeouts for force extra innings.

The Seminoles got their offense going right away in the top of the eighth as a wild pitch on a strikeout to Warren allowed her to reach base. Morgan Klaevemann followed with a bunt single and a walk to O’Brien loaded the bases with nobody out in the inning.

Alex Powers hit a grounder to short that was misplayed for an error, allowing Warren to score and make it 4-3 Florida State. Back-to-back hit by pitches with the bases loaded to Schinella and Cooper extended the Seminole lead to 6-3 in the top of the eighth.

Alex Kossoff brought in the final Seminole run of the inning with an RBI sacrifice fly to left field to score Katie Baker who had pinch run for Powers earlier in the frame.

Waldrop came back out to the circle for the bottom of the eighth with FSU holding a 7-3 lead. Virginia Tech managed two runs in the frame on an RBI triple by McGoldrick and an RBI ground out by Smith. A lineout to O’Brien at short ended the game and secured the 7-5 victory for the Seminoles.

Waldrop improved to 15-3 on the season as she pitched 8.0 innings and allowed nine hits, five runs, four earned, with four walks and seven strikeouts. She also snapped a streak of 47.2 innings without giving up an earned run, dating back to UCLA on February 21.

Tyler (10-4) took the loss for the Hokies despite holding the Seminoles scoreless through the first 5.2 innings of the game. She finished with 7.0 innings pitched, five hits, seven runs, six earned with two walks and seven strikeouts. Kelly Heinz came on in relief in the eighth and registered all three outs in the inning.

In game two, Florida State took an early 1-0 lead in the second inning as Powers led off the inning with a walk and Cooper followed later with a double to right center. Daddis knocked an RBI single to left to drive in the game’s first run.

VT’s Prong quickly tied it in the bottom of the second with a home run to left field. It was her sixth home run of the season.

The Seminoles made it 2-1 in the fifth inning after loading the bases on singles from Kossoff and Warren, as well as an intentional walk to O’Brien. Powers ended up striking out, but the pitch was in the dirt and got away from the catcher, allowing Kossoff to score on the wild pitch.

Virginia Tech tied it up with a one-out solo home run by Gaskill in the fifth and followed with a walk and a double to end the day for FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs.

Waldrop came on in relief and her first pitch hit VT’s Mericka to load the bases and her next pitch was hit for a grand slam by Vanessa Gonzalez to give Virginia Tech a 6-2 lead after five innings.

Burroughs did not factor in the decision as she finished the game with 4.2 innings pitched, five hits, four runs with two walks and three strikeouts.

Again trailing while entering the seventh inning, this time as a four-run deficit, the Seminoles started a rally by getting the leadoff runner on base via a bunt single by Kossoff. Back-to-back singles by Klaevemann and O’Brien again loaded the bases for Powers. The redshirt sophomore hit a RBI single into right field to cut the lead to 6-3.

Virginia Tech replaced game two starter Heinz with game one starter Tyler. The pitching change didn’t stop the momentum as Schinella came up next and hit an RBI groundout to second to score Klavemann and make it 6-4 Hokies with two outs in the seventh. Cooper stepped in next with runners on second and third and ripped a double to the wall to tie the game a 6-6 and force VT to bat in the bottom of the inning.

Waldrop retired the Hokies in order in the bottom of the inning on two groundouts and a strikeout to force extras for the second-straight game.

The first two FSU batters were retired in the top of the eighth, but Warren put the Noles on top for good after blasting an 0-2 pitch to deep center for a solo home run to give the Seminoles a 7-6 lead.

Waldrop pitched around a walk in the eighth inning and secured the victory for FSU by inducing a groundout to the circle. Waldrop (16-3) allowed two runs on one hit over the final 3.1 innings of the game, giving up just one walk and recording three strikeouts.

VT starter Heinz pitched 6.1 innings and gave up nine hits, six runs with four walks and four strikeouts. Tyler (10-5) took the loss for the second straight game, giving up one run and three hits over 1.2 innings with one strikeout.

Two Seventh-Inning Rallies Lifts Noles Over Hokies.
Forcing extra innings with a one-run seventh in game one and a four-run seventh in game two, the No. 10 Seminoles earned a pair of eight-inning wins over No. 25 Virginia Tech, 7-5 and 7-6.

BLACKSBURG, VA – Trailing in each game of the doubleheader entering the seventh inning at Virginia Tech, Florida State scored just enough each time to force an extra frame, plating one run in game one and four runs in game two. The No. 10 Seminoles (25-7, 7-1 ACC) would go on to win game one, 7-5 in eight innings, and would defeat the No. 25 Hokies (22-5, 3-4 ACC) by a score of 7-6 in eight innings in game two.

“Great fight and finish out of our team today,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “It didn’t matter the situation, whether at the plate or in the field, we played for each other and fought until the final out. Getting a pair of ranked wins on the road against quality team like Virginia Tech can be a turning point for us this season. We never gave up and trusted in what we could do with the next pitch, not worrying about what had happened before.”

Virginia Tech got on the board in game one with a pair of runs in the third inning after leading off the inning with two walks by Lauren Gaskill and Kylie McGoldrick. A sacrifice bunt moved them both into scoring position and each came into score on back-to-back base hits by Kelsey Mericka and Michelle Prong.

The Seminoles were able to crack the run column in the top of the sixth inning with a two-out, two-run home run by Maddie O’Brien. Jessica Warren was hit by a pitch earlier in the inning and O’Brien tied the game by blasting a 3-2 pitch over the wall in left centerfield.

Virginia Tech fought right back in the bottom of the sixth as Breanna Davenport hit a single to right and Gaskill was able to reach on a throwing error by Waldrop. Florida State elected to load the bases with an intentional walk to McGoldrick. Katey Smith gave Virginia Tech a 3-2 lead with an RBI groundout to the second baseman.

The Seminoles rallied to tie the game at 3-3 in the top of the seventh as Bailey Schinella drew a leadoff walk and Bella D’Errico came on the pinch run for the senior utility player.

A sacrifice bunt from Ellie Cooper moved D’Errico up to second base and she came in to score a batter later on a pinch-hit double to the wall in centerfield by Victoria Daddis.

The Hokies threatened in the bottom of the seventh as Prong led off the inning with a walk. Prong moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and later to third on a passed ball. That’s as far as she would go as Waldrop ended the inning with a pair of strikeouts for force extra innings.

The Seminoles got their offense going right away in the top of the eighth as a wild pitch on a strikeout to Warren allowed her to reach base. Morgan Klaevemann followed with a bunt single and a walk to O’Brien loaded the bases with nobody out in the inning.

Alex Powers hit a grounder to short that was misplayed for an error, allowing Warren to score and make it 4-3 Florida State. Back-to-back hit by pitches with the bases loaded to Schinella and Cooper extended the Seminole lead to 6-3 in the top of the eighth.

Alex Kossoff brought in the final Seminole run of the inning with an RBI sacrifice fly to left field to score Katie Baker who had pinch run for Powers earlier in the frame.

Waldrop came back out to the circle for the bottom of the eighth with FSU holding a 7-3 lead. Virginia Tech managed two runs in the frame on an RBI triple by McGoldrick and an RBI ground out by Smith. A lineout to O’Brien at short ended the game and secured the 7-5 victory for the Seminoles.

Waldrop improved to 15-3 on the season as she pitched 8.0 innings and allowed nine hits, five runs, four earned, with four walks and seven strikeouts. She also snapped a streak of 47.2 innings without giving up an earned run, dating back to UCLA on February 21.

Tyler (10-4) took the loss for the Hokies despite holding the Seminoles scoreless through the first 5.2 innings of the game. She finished with 7.0 innings pitched, five hits, seven runs, six earned with two walks and seven strikeouts. Kelly Heinz came on in relief in the eighth and registered all three outs in the inning.

In game two, Florida State took an early 1-0 lead in the second inning as Powers led off the inning with a walk and Cooper followed later with a double to right center. Daddis knocked an RBI single to left to drive in the game’s first run.

VT’s Prong quickly tied it in the bottom of the second with a home run to left field. It was her sixth home run of the season.

The Seminoles made it 2-1 in the fifth inning after loading the bases on singles from Kossoff and Warren, as well as an intentional walk to O’Brien. Powers ended up striking out, but the pitch was in the dirt and got away from the catcher, allowing Kossoff to score on the wild pitch.

Virginia Tech tied it up with a one-out solo home run by Gaskill in the fifth and followed with a walk and a double to end the day for FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs.

Waldrop came on in relief and her first pitch hit VT’s Mericka to load the bases and her next pitch was hit for a grand slam by Vanessa Gonzalez to give Virginia Tech a 6-2 lead after five innings.

Burroughs did not factor in the decision as she finished the game with 4.2 innings pitched, five hits, four runs with two walks and three strikeouts.

Again trailing while entering the seventh inning, this time as a four-run deficit, the Seminoles started a rally by getting the leadoff runner on base via a bunt single by Kossoff. Back-to-back singles by Klaevemann and O’Brien again loaded the bases for Powers. The redshirt sophomore hit a RBI single into right field to cut the lead to 6-3.

Virginia Tech replaced game two starter Heinz with game one starter Tyler. The pitching change didn’t stop the momentum as Schinella came up next and hit an RBI groundout to second to score Klavemann and make it 6-4 Hokies with two outs in the seventh. Cooper stepped in next with runners on second and third and ripped a double to the wall to tie the game a 6-6 and force VT to bat in the bottom of the inning.

Waldrop retired the Hokies in order in the bottom of the inning on two groundouts and a strikeout to force extras for the second-straight game.

The first two FSU batters were retired in the top of the eighth, but Warren put the Noles on top for good after blasting an 0-2 pitch to deep center for a solo home run to give the Seminoles a 7-6 lead.

Waldrop pitched around a walk in the eighth inning and secured the victory for FSU by inducing a groundout to the circle. Waldrop (16-3) allowed two runs on one hit over the final 3.1 innings of the game, giving up just one walk and recording three strikeouts.

VT starter Heinz pitched 6.1 innings and gave up nine hits, six runs with four walks and four strikeouts. Tyler (10-5) took the loss for the second straight game, giving up one run and three hits over 1.2 innings with one strikeout.

Seminoles Sweep Series At Virginia Tech.
No. 10 Florida State scores four runs in the sixth and goes on to defeat the No. 25 Hokies, 5-2, on Sunday afternoon.

BLACKSBURG, VA – Playing until the final out yet again, No. 10 Florida State (26-7, 8-1 ACC) scored four runs in the sixth and added one in the seventh to take a 5-2 victory over No. 25 Virginia Tech (22-6, 3-5 ACC) on March 22 at Tech Softball Park.

“Another outstanding job by this team to battle and fight from behind and not give up until the end,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We had excellent production from the bottom of our lineup and Lacey pitched another great game for us. Great to get the series sweep on the road and I’m really proud of how we competed this weekend.”

The Seminoles had a few scoring chances in the early going, getting multiple base runners on in each of the first two innings on a double by Alex Powers and a single Victoria Daddis, along with walks to Macey Cheatham and Maddie O’Brien.

Each would be stranded as Virginia Tech starter Mikaela Aiken worked out of the jam both times. Aiken allowed just two hits and zero runs through the first 5.0 innings of the game.

Virginia Tech also had baserunners in the early going as FSU starter Lacey Waldrop allowed two hits and a walk over the first three innings. The Hokies plated the first run of the game in the bottom of the fourth as a single and a walk allowed Lauren Gaskill to give VT a 1-0 lead with a two-out RBI single to left field.

The Seminoles finally were able to get to Aiken in the top of the sixth inning as Powers led off with a walk. She was pinch-run for by Bella D’Errico. Bailey Schinella followed with a grounder to the first baseman, Bailey Liddle, but her throw to second base sailed into left field allowing runners to end up at second and third. Lauren Harris then entered the game to run for Schinella.

Ellie Cooper tied the game at 1-1 on a bunt single that slipped by Aiken in the circle, allowing D’Errico to score. Daddis came to the plate next and ripped the first pitch of her at bat into the left field corner for a two-run double to give Florida State a 3-1 lead. Victoria East pinch-ran for Daddis at second.

Virginia Tech’s Maggie Tyler came on in relief of Aiken as the Seminoles continued to bat. Alex Kossoff dropped a double into left field to move East to third. For the second consecutive game, Jessica Warren reached on a strikeout and wild pitch, which loaded the bases for O’Brien.

The senior from Palm Harbor, Fla., drew her second walk of the game, and NCAA-leading 44th of the season, to bring in another run and make it 4-1 Seminoles.

The Noles added another run in the top of the seventh as Harris started off the inning with a single to center and East followed later in the inning with an RBI double to left to make it 5-1 Florida State as Virginia Tech came to bat in the seventh.

The Hokies were able to get the leadoff batter on base as Cooper’s throw on a grounder by Liddle to second was dropped by East. Liddle later scored on a double by Kylie McGoldrick to make it 5-2 Florida State. Waldrop secured the win by getting Michelle Prong to fly out to left field to end the inning.

Waldrop (17-3) earned the complete-game victory, scattering five hits and allowing two runs, one earned with two walks and two strikeouts.

VT’s Aiken (5-1) took the loss after giving up four runs, two earned in 5.0 innings with six walks and one strikeout. Tyler pitched the final 2.0 innings of the game and surrendered three hits and one run with one walk and two strikeouts.

Florida State Splits Doubleheader With Auburn.
The No. 11 Seminoles take game one over No. 9 Auburn, 10-7, but fall 10-4 in game two on Wednesday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In a doubleheader that lasted nearly six hours between No. 11 Florida State and No. 9 Auburn, each team was able to come out with a win as the Seminoles (27-8) earned a 10-7 game one victory while the Tigers (33-3) won game two, 10-4, on Wednesday night at JoAnne Graf Field.

"There are a lot of good things out of tonight as we went up against one of the top teams in the country," said head coach Lonni Alameda. "I loved the fight out of this team to come back in game one and not give up after getting down early. I thought our pitchers did a good job of taking on the challenge of facing the No. 1 offense, but there are still things we can learn from and work on as we move forward. Overall, a good night."

Auburn scored two runs in the first inning on a pair of Seminole fielding errors and a single from Emily Carosone. The Tigers extended their lead to 3-0 in the second with another unearned run as the leadoff batter Morgan Estell reached on a fielding error and later scored on a sacrifice fly to center.

The Seminoles battled back to take the lead in the bottom of the second, scoring seven runs - all with two outs - highlighted by a grand slam by Alex Powers to centerfield. Victoria Daddis added a solo home run of her own - her first career home run - and Bailey Schinella, Alex Kossoff and Morgan Klaevemann all posted singles in the inning.

The Tigers cut the lead to 7-6 Florida State as Jade Rhodes hit a three-run home run to left field in the top of the third inning.

Powers extended the Florida State lead to 9-6 in the fourth inning with her second home run of the game as she drove a 2-1 pitch over the wall in the left field for a two-run home run. It marked her second two-HR game of the season, matching her output from February 10 at Florida A&M.

After a shaky first three innings, FSU starter Lacey Waldrop settled in and kept the Auburn batters off balance the rest of the way. She sent the Tigers down in order in the fourth and fifth innings and did not allow them to score another run until the top of the seventh when the Noles were prioritizing outs over runs.

Florida State scored its final run in the bottom of the sixth on an RBI single by Maddie O'Brien, driving in Klaevemann who had reached earlier in the inning on a bunt single and ended up on third base due to an Auburn throwing error.

Waldrop (18-3) earned the complete-game victory, allowing seven hits and seven runs, four earned, over 7.0 innings with three walks and four strikeouts.

Auburn's Lexi Davis was tagged with her first loss of the season and moved to 14-1 after giving up six hits and seven runs in 1.2 innings of work. She added three walks and one strikeout. Marcy Harper pitched the final 4.1 innings for the Tigers, surrendering three runs on three hits with five walks and three strikeouts.

Auburn broke out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning of game two on a two-RBI triple by Branndi Melero and an RBI single from Haley Fagan.

The Tigers added one run each in the second and third innings on a bases loaded walk and wild pitch, respectively, to hold a 5-0 advantage after three full innings.

Florida State rallied to score three runs in the bottom of the fourth inning after Daddis led off the inning with a walk and was pinch-run for by Bella D'Errico. D'Errico came around to score the first Seminole run of the game on the next play as Ellie Cooper's bunt single was thrown away by Auburn 1B Rhodes, allowing her to reach third. Cooper finished with three hits to tie a career high.

Schinella followed with an RBI double to the wall in right center and she scored later in the inning on a sacrifice fly by Amy Szymanowski to make it 5-3 Auburn after four innings.

The Tigers scored three more runs in the top of the fifth inning to chase FSU starter Jessica Burroughs. Burroughs (9-5) took the loss as she gave up a career-high 10 runs, eight earned on eight hits with seven walks and five strikeouts.

Schinella came in to relieve Burroughs and allowed two inherited runners to score on a bases loaded walk and an RBI single as Auburn extended its lead to 10-3 heading into the bottom of the fifth. The senior utility player allowed only one hit and zero runs over the remainder of the game, while giving up four walks and one strikeout in 2.2 innings pitched.

Jessica Warren hit her eighth home run of the season, a solo home run in the sixth inning, but that's all that the Seminoles would be able to bring in, leaving a total of 11 runners on base in game two.

Auburn starter Rachael Walters pitched well for the Tigers, squandering Florida State's scoring chances in the complete-game win to move to 12-0 on the season. She scattered eight hits and five walks while allowing four runs, three earned, with three strikeouts.

Florida State Splits Doubleheader With Auburn.
The No. 11 Seminoles take game one over No. 9 Auburn, 10-7, but fall 10-4 in game two on Wednesday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In a doubleheader that lasted nearly six hours between No. 11 Florida State and No. 9 Auburn, each team was able to come out with a win as the Seminoles (27-8) earned a 10-7 game one victory while the Tigers (33-3) won game two, 10-4, on Wednesday night at JoAnne Graf Field.

"There are a lot of good things out of tonight as we went up against one of the top teams in the country," said head coach Lonni Alameda. "I loved the fight out of this team to come back in game one and not give up after getting down early. I thought our pitchers did a good job of taking on the challenge of facing the No. 1 offense, but there are still things we can learn from and work on as we move forward. Overall, a good night."

Auburn scored two runs in the first inning on a pair of Seminole fielding errors and a single from Emily Carosone. The Tigers extended their lead to 3-0 in the second with another unearned run as the leadoff batter Morgan Estell reached on a fielding error and later scored on a sacrifice fly to center.

The Seminoles battled back to take the lead in the bottom of the second, scoring seven runs - all with two outs - highlighted by a grand slam by Alex Powers to centerfield. Victoria Daddis added a solo home run of her own - her first career home run - and Bailey Schinella, Alex Kossoff and Morgan Klaevemann all posted singles in the inning.

The Tigers cut the lead to 7-6 Florida State as Jade Rhodes hit a three-run home run to left field in the top of the third inning.

Powers extended the Florida State lead to 9-6 in the fourth inning with her second home run of the game as she drove a 2-1 pitch over the wall in the left field for a two-run home run. It marked her second two-HR game of the season, matching her output from February 10 at Florida A&M.

After a shaky first three innings, FSU starter Lacey Waldrop settled in and kept the Auburn batters off balance the rest of the way. She sent the Tigers down in order in the fourth and fifth innings and did not allow them to score another run until the top of the seventh when the Noles were prioritizing outs over runs.

Florida State scored its final run in the bottom of the sixth on an RBI single by Maddie O'Brien, driving in Klaevemann who had reached earlier in the inning on a bunt single and ended up on third base due to an Auburn throwing error.

Waldrop (18-3) earned the complete-game victory, allowing seven hits and seven runs, four earned, over 7.0 innings with three walks and four strikeouts.

Auburn's Lexi Davis was tagged with her first loss of the season and moved to 14-1 after giving up six hits and seven runs in 1.2 innings of work. She added three walks and one strikeout. Marcy Harper pitched the final 4.1 innings for the Tigers, surrendering three runs on three hits with five walks and three strikeouts.

Auburn broke out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning of game two on a two-RBI triple by Branndi Melero and an RBI single from Haley Fagan.

The Tigers added one run each in the second and third innings on a bases loaded walk and wild pitch, respectively, to hold a 5-0 advantage after three full innings.

Florida State rallied to score three runs in the bottom of the fourth inning after Daddis led off the inning with a walk and was pinch-run for by Bella D'Errico. D'Errico came around to score the first Seminole run of the game on the next play as Ellie Cooper's bunt single was thrown away by Auburn 1B Rhodes, allowing her to reach third. Cooper finished with three hits to tie a career high.

Schinella followed with an RBI double to the wall in right center and she scored later in the inning on a sacrifice fly by Amy Szymanowski to make it 5-3 Auburn after four innings.

The Tigers scored three more runs in the top of the fifth inning to chase FSU starter Jessica Burroughs. Burroughs (9-5) took the loss as she gave up a career-high 10 runs, eight earned on eight hits with seven walks and five strikeouts.

Schinella came in to relieve Burroughs and allowed two inherited runners to score on a bases loaded walk and an RBI single as Auburn extended its lead to 10-3 heading into the bottom of the fifth. The senior utility player allowed only one hit and zero runs over the remainder of the game, while giving up four walks and one strikeout in 2.2 innings pitched.

Jessica Warren hit her eighth home run of the season, a solo home run in the sixth inning, but that's all that the Seminoles would be able to bring in, leaving a total of 11 runners on base in game two.

Auburn starter Rachael Walters pitched well for the Tigers, squandering Florida State's scoring chances in the complete-game win to move to 12-0 on the season. She scattered eight hits and five walks while allowing four runs, three earned, with three strikeouts.

Waldrop Earns Career Win No. 100 As FSU Sweeps DH vs. Pitt.
The senior pitcher allowed just one baserunner in a five-inning victory to record the career milestone.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 11 Florida State (29-8, 10-1 ACC) earned its 14th and 15th wins of the 2015 season against teams receiving votes in the national polls on Saturday as the Seminoles defeated Pitt (24-9, 6-5 ACC) in both games of a doubleheader on JoAnne Graf Field. Lacey Waldrop earned career win No. 100 in a 8-0, five-inning victory in game one and the Noles posted a 7-0 victory over the Panthers in game two.

“It was a good day today,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We’ve been working on a few things this week, in addition to the Auburn games, and it was good to see that executed this afternoon. Lacey and JB did a great job for us in the circle and our defense was able to make some plays behind them.

“Offensively, we came through in some big situations and had a disciplined approach at the plate. Tomorrow will be a chance for each team to make adjustments and it will be fun to see that chess match play out.”

Waldrop was nearly perfect in the circle for the Seminoles in game one, tossing only 50 pitches in the complete-game victory. She surrendered only one base runner for the entire game on a single to right by Kaitlin Manuel in the second inning. Waldrop finished with three strikeouts and zero walks in 5.0 innings of work as she posted her 100th career victory.

The Florida State offense gave Waldrop all the support she would need as it jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead in the first inning. The Noles brought nine batters to the plate and registered four walks in the frame. Victoria Daddis brought in the first run on an RBI groundout to short and Bailey Schinella made it 2-0 with a bases-loaded walk. Victoria East followed with a two-RBI single to right center to make it 4-0 Seminoles.

Amy Szymanowski extended the lead to 7-0 in the third inning with a three-run home run to right field, scoring Schinella and East who had reached earlier in the inning on a walk and single, respectively.

Victoria Daddis closed out the Seminole scoring in the fourth inning with a solo home run to right field. It was her second home run of the season.

Redshirt senior Maddie O’Brien finished game one 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored. Her groundout in the third inning marked the first time in 12 career plate appearances against Pitt that she failed to reach base. O’Brien was perfect over nine appearances last season in Pittsburgh, tallying two home runs, two doubles, four walks and a hit-by-pitch.

Pitt starter Savannah King (14-4) took the loss, giving up four runs on two hits with four walks over 0.2 innings of work. Jenna Modic relieved King and tossed the next 1.1 innings, giving up four hits, three runs with three walks and a strikeout. Alexa Larkin closed out the game for the Panthers, allowing three hits and one run over 2.0 innings.

Game two got off to a familiar start for FSU pitcher Jessica Burroughs. She struck out the side in the first inning, marking the fourth time this season that she has registered three strikeouts in the opening inning of a game.

Jessica Warren started things off for the Noles in the bottom of the first, driving the first pitch of her leadoff at bat over the wall in right for a solo home run. It was her ninth home run of the season. FSU improved to 13-0 on the season when scoring in the first inning.

Florida State added two more in the bottom of the third inning as walks to Morgan Klaevemann and O’Brien turned into runs after Alex Powers ripped a double into the gap in left center to make it 3-0 Seminoles.

The Noles used some solid situational hitting in the fourth inning to bring in another run. Schinella led off with a double to left and she was pinch-run for by Korina Rosario. A ground out from Alex Kossoff moved Rosario to third and an RBI ground out from Macey Cheatham allowed her to come in to score and extend the lead to 4-0.

Burroughs continued to dominate the Panthers from the circle for Florida State for the remainder of the game. The Warner Robins, Ga., native moved to 10-5 on the season with the complete-game shutout as she registered nine strikeouts and allowed just two hits and zero walks.

The Seminoles added some insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth, as back-to-back singles by Kossoff and Cheatham opened the inning. Warren drove a triple to the wall in right center to make it 6-0 Florida State. Klaevemann followed later in the inning with her third hit of the game to drive in Warren and give FSU a 7-0 lead.

Pitt’s Kayla Harris moved to 8-5 with the loss. She surrendered 13 hits over 5.0 innings, allowing all seven Seminole runs along with two walks and zero strikeouts. Again, Larkin finished the game for Pitt in the circle, tossing the final inning and allowing one base runner on a fielding error.

With the series win over Pitt, the Seminoles are now 19-0-2 in their last 21 series against ACC opponents.

The senior pitcher allowed just one baserunner in a five-inning victory to record the career milestone.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 11 Florida State (29-8, 10-1 ACC) earned its 14th and 15th wins of the 2015 season against teams receiving votes in the national polls on Saturday as the Seminoles defeated Pitt (24-9, 6-5 ACC) in both games of a doubleheader on JoAnne Graf Field.

Florida State Complete Sweep With Shutout Of Pitt.
The No. 11 Seminoles defeat the Panthers, 3-0, on Sunday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 11 Florida State (30-8, 11-1 ACC) recorded its third conference sweep of the season with a 3-0 shutout of Pitt (24-10, 6-6 ACC) on Sunday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field.

“Another solid performance this afternoon,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “Pitching, hitting and defense all worked well together to close out the weekend with a win. Conference wins are always important and this was another step as we move toward achieving our goals for the season.”

It was a pitcher’s duel Sunday afternoon as FSU starter Lacey Waldrop and Pitt’s Savannah King kept the game scoreless until the fourth inning. Waldrop recorded three strikeouts in the first inning as she went on to finish with 11 for the game. King retired seven in a row from the first to the third innings and ended with three strikeouts.

The Noles scored their first run of the game in the fourth inning after Alex Powers led off with a single to right field. Bella D’Errico entered the game to pinch-run for Powers and moved up to third after a walk to Victoria Daddis and a groundout by Bailey Schinella. Alex Kossoff followed with an infield single to second base to score D’Errico and give Florida State a 1-0 lead.

FSU extended the lead to 2-0 in the fifth on a sacrifice fly from Powers to score Jessica Warren who had started the inning with a single to center. A single from Morgan Klaevemann and a walk to Maddie O’Brien loaded the bases, allowing Powers to drive in her team-leading 36th RBI of the season.

Warren made it 3-0 Florida State in the sixth with an RBI single to left, scoring Victoria East who had hit a pinch-hit double to right center earlier in the inning.

Waldrop improved to 20-3 on the season as she won her 15th consecutive decision of the year. She scattered four hits and three walks in the complete-game shutout, recording 11 strikeouts.

King (14-5) took the loss, surrendering eight hits and three runs with three walks and three strikeouts.

Seminoles Shutout Florida A&M.
No. 11 Florida State posted an 11-0 victory in six innings over Florida A&M on Wednesday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 8/11 Florida State (31-8) recorded its fourth consecutive shutout with an 11-0 victory in six innings over Florida A&M (8-30) on April 1 at JoAnne Graf Field. The Seminoles have not allowed a run in their last 27.1 innings.

"Nice win tonight," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We've been getting more consistent at the plate and in the circle and that showed on the field. As a team we are growing into where we want to be at the end of the season and it was good to see them be more aggressive and take advantage of their opportunities. Daddis had a big swing at the end and Jessica had a great day pitching for us and was hitting her spots."

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs improved to 11-5 on the season and finished with 14 strikeouts to tie a career-high. She pitched 6.0 innings and allowed just two hits and zero walks.

The Seminoles opened the scoring in the second inning after Victoria Daddis led off the inning with a walk and Ellie Cooper followed with a bunt single. A fly out by Bailey Schinella moved Daddis up to third base and Cooper promptly stole second on the next pitch to move into scoring position.

Alex Kossoff lined a single into center to score both runs and give the Seminoles a 2-0 lead. She advanced to third on the play as the throw from centerfield got away from the FAMU catcher. Kossoff came in to score later in the inning on a sacrifice fly to left field by Macey Cheatham to make it 3-0 Florida State.

Florida State scored another run in the fourth inning on an RBI single by Morgan Klaevemann. Kossoff scored from third on the play after reaching base earlier in the inning on a bunt single.

FSU extended the lead to 6-0 in the fifth inning as Cooper hit an RBI triple off the wall in center and later scored on an RBI single to right field by Schinella.

The game came to a close in the sixth inning as the Seminoles plated five runs to secure the 11-0 run-rule victory. Jessica Warren hit her team-leading 10th home run of the season with a solo shot to right to make it 7-0. Consecutive walks to Klaevemann, Maddie O'Brien and Alex Powers loaded the bases for Daddis who crushed a home run to left center for a walk-off grand slam.

FAMU starter Veronica Burse (3-14) took the loss for the Rattlers after allowing six runs on seven hits with four walks and one strikeout over 5.0 innings. Amber Fullwood pitched the sixth inning and allowed five runs, three walks and two hits in 0.1 innings of work.

Seminoles Sweep Doubleheader At NC State.
No. 8/11 Florida State earns a pair of road wins, 6-5 and 10-1 (6) against ACC-foe NC State on April 3.

RALEIGH, NC – Trailing in the early innings of both games at NC State, No. 8/11 Florida State (33-8, 13-1 ACC) battled back to secure two conference wins against the Wolfpack (21-15, 6-5 ACC) on April 3 at Dail Softball Stadium. The Noles took game one, 6-5, and posted a 10-1 victory in six innings in game two.

The doubleheader sweep gave Florida State the series win, improving the Seminoles to 20-0-2 in their last 22 ACC series, dating back to 2012.

“Today was a battle,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “NC State is a scrappy team that competes every pitch and every inning. I am proud of how we didn’t give in during game one to hold on for the win and took that momentum into game two.

We had very few mistakes in the circle and on defense and took advantage of our opportunities at the plate. Tomorrow will be a good game between two very competitive teams.”

The Seminoles got on the board in the third inning of game one, pushing across three unearned runs against NC State starter Emily Weiman. FSU loaded the bases without recording an out on a hit-by-pitch to Jessica Warren, a single by Morgan Klaevemann and a walk to Maddie O’Brien.

Weiman nearly got out of the inning after a ground out and a strikeout, but a fielding error by the NC State first baseman allowed Warren to score and the inning to continue. Bailey Schinella next added a two-RBI single to centerfield to make it 3-0 Florida State.

FSU starter Lacey Waldrop had an excellent start to the game, retiring the first eight batters, including three strikeouts and a home-run robbing catch in left field by Alex Kossoff.

The Wolfpack threatened in the bottom of the third inning, loading the bases with two outs on two walks and a base hit. Waldrop was able to end the inning with a strikeout to Molly Hutchison.

The Noles extended the lead to 4-0 in the fourth inning as Warren led off the inning with a double to right center. She moved up to third on a groundout by Klaevemann and scored on an RBI groundout by Alex Powers.

NC State again loaded the bases in the fourth, but a 3-2, two-out pitch from Waldrop was out of the strike zone allowing the Wolfpack to score their first run of the game. NCSU’s Renada Davis then stepped in and hit a grand slam to left field, giving the Wolfpack a 5-4 lead after four innings.

The Noles regained the lead with two runs in the top of the fifth as NC State changed pitchers to bring in sophomore Courtney Mirabella. Florida State scored both runs without the ball leaving the infield as bases-loaded walks to Klaevemann and O’Brien gave the Noles a 6-5 advantage.

After allowing a leadoff walk in the NC State fifth, Waldrop came out of the game as Schinella entered the circle for the Noles. Schinella pitched very effectively down the stretch, allowing just one hit and zero walks with one strikeout over 2.0 innings as the Seminoles maintained a one-run lead on the Wolfpack.

Waldrop (21-3) earned the win with 4.0 innings pitched and gave up five runs on three hits with six walks and six strikeouts. Jessica Burroughs pitched the final inning of the game for the Noles, retiring all three batters on two fly outs and a strikeout to earn her second career save.

Mirabella took the loss and moved to 5-5 on the season after allowing two runs on three hits with two walks and two strikeouts over 3.0 innings. Weiman finished with 4.0 innings pitched and five strikeouts as she allowed four runs on five hits with five walks.

NC State took a 1-0 lead in the first inning of game two on as Tyler Ross hit an RBI single to center.

Kossoff got the Seminole offense started in the third inning with a bunt single to third base, extending her hitting streak to 12 games. She moved up to second on a bunt by Macey Cheatham and scored on an RBI single by Warren to tie the game at 1-1.

O’Brien drew a walk later in the inning to load the bases, setting an FSU record with her 57th walk of the season. She surpassed her mark of 56 that she posted in 2014. Powers followed with a two-RBI double to right field to give the Seminoles a 3-1 lead.

FSU exploded for four runs in the top of the fourth, highlighted by a towering two-run home run to right field by Maddie O’Brien. Warren and Powers also doubled in the inning and Schinella added an RBI single to make it 7-1 Florida State.

The Noles closed out the scoring with three more runs in the sixth inning as O’Brien and Powers each were hit by a pitch to start the frame. A two-RBI double to right center by Schinella made it 9-1 and Kossoff later made it 10-1 with an RBI ground out to score Katie Baker, who pinch-ran for Schinella.

Burroughs settled in after the first inning, not allowing a base hit until a one-out single to center in the sixth. She ended the game by inducing a ground ball to short that started a 6-4-3 double play.

Burroughs tossed 6.0 innings and gave up just one run on three hits with four walks and four strikeouts. She improved to 12-5 on the season with the complete-game victory.

NC State’s Weiman (16-10) took the game two loss after allowing seven runs on eight hits in 3.2 innings of work. She added three walks and two strikeouts. Mirabella tossed 1.1 scoreless innings before making way for Harli Hubbard, who closed out the game with 1.0 innings pitched, surrendering three runs on two hits.

FSU starter Lacey Waldrop had an excellent start to the game, retiring the first eight batters, including three strikeouts and a home-run robbing catch in left field by Alex Kossoff.

The Wolfpack threatened in the bottom of the third inning, loading the bases with two outs on two walks and a base hit. Waldrop was able to end the inning with a strikeout to Molly Hutchison.

The Noles extended the lead to 4-0 in the fourth inning as Warren led off the inning with a double to right center. She moved up to third on a groundout by Klaevemann and scored on an RBI groundout by Alex Powers.

NC State again loaded the bases in the fourth, but a 3-2, two-out pitch from Waldrop was out of the strike zone allowing the Wolfpack to score their first run of the game. NCSU’s Renada Davis then stepped in and hit a grand slam to left field, giving the Wolfpack a 5-4 lead after four innings.

The Noles regained the lead with two runs in the top of the fifth as NC State changed pitchers to bring in sophomore Courtney Mirabella. Florida State scored both runs without the ball leaving the infield as bases-loaded walks to Klaevemann and O’Brien gave the Noles a 6-5 advantage.

After allowing a leadoff walk in the NC State fifth, Waldrop came out of the game as Schinella entered the circle for the Noles. Schinella pitched very effectively down the stretch, allowing just one hit and zero walks with one strikeout over 2.0 innings as the Seminoles maintained a one-run lead on the Wolfpack.

Waldrop (21-3) earned the win with 4.0 innings pitched and gave up five runs on three hits with six walks and six strikeouts. Jessica Burroughs pitched the final inning of the game for the Noles, retiring all three batters on two fly outs and a strikeout to earn her second career save.

Mirabella took the loss and moved to 5-5 on the season after allowing two runs on three hits with two walks and two strikeouts over 3.0 innings. Weiman finished with 4.0 innings pitched and five strikeouts as she allowed four runs on five hits with five walks.

NC State took a 1-0 lead in the first inning of game two on as Tyler Ross hit an RBI single to center.

Kossoff got the Seminole offense started in the third inning with a bunt single to third base, extending her hitting streak to 12 games. She moved up to second on a bunt by Macey Cheatham and scored on an RBI single by Warren to tie the game at 1-1.

O’Brien drew a walk later in the inning to load the bases, setting an FSU record with her 57th walk of the season. She surpassed her mark of 56 that she posted in 2014. Powers followed with a two-RBI double to right field to give the Seminoles a 3-1 lead.

FSU exploded for four runs in the top of the fourth, highlighted by a towering two-run home run to right field by Maddie O’Brien. Warren and Powers also doubled in the inning and Schinella added an RBI single to make it 7-1 Florida State.

The Noles closed out the scoring with three more runs in the sixth inning as O’Brien and Powers each were hit by a pitch to start the frame. A two-RBI double to right center by Schinella made it 9-1 and Kossoff later made it 10-1 with an RBI ground out to score Katie Baker, who pinch-ran for Schinella.

Burroughs settled in after the first inning, not allowing a base hit until a one-out single to center in the sixth. She ended the game by inducing a ground ball to short that started a 6-4-3 double play.

Burroughs tossed 6.0 innings and gave up just one run on three hits with four walks and four strikeouts. She improved to 12-5 on the season with the complete-game victory.

NC State’s Weiman (16-10) took the game two loss after allowing seven runs on eight hits in 3.2 innings of work. She added three walks and two strikeouts. Mirabella tossed 1.1 scoreless innings before making way for Harli Hubbard, who closed out the game with 1.0 innings pitched, surrendering three runs on two hits.

FSU Drops Series Finale At NC State.
NC State defeats Florida State, 9-4, on Saturday afternoon at Dail Softball Stadium.

RALEIGH, NC – In back-and-forth game with three lead changes, No. 8/11 Florida State (33-9, 13-2 ACC) dropped its second conference game of the season on April 4 as NC State (212-15, 7-5 ACC) defeated the Seminoles, 9-4, at Dail Softball Stadium.

“Softball is a game of moments,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “How you perform when those opportunities present themselves will determine how successful you are. We had chances at the plate with runners in scoring position, but couldn’t get them in. We had chances to get off the field on defense and allowed the inning to continue.

“But credit NC State today. They fought for all seven innings and earned the win this afternoon. They are a quality program that competes each and every game.”

The Wolfpack took a 1-0 lead in the first inning as Molly Hutchison reached base on a walk and moved up to second on a passed ball. She came in to score an unearned run on a two-out infield single to second base by Tyler Ross.

Florida State wasted no time in taking the lead in the top of the second inning as Jessica Warren blasted a three-run home run to left to score Ellie Cooper and Macey Cheatham who had walked earlier in the inning.

It was her team-leading 11th home run of the season, moving her into a tie for eighth place in FSU single-season history. Warren finished the game with three hits to tie a career high.

NC State tied the game in the bottom of the third on a two-run home run by Renada Davis – her eighth of the season.

Alex Powers gave the Seminoles the lead back on an RBI double down the left field line in the fifth inning to score Bella D’Errico and make it 4-3 Florida State. D’Errico came on to pinch-run for Maddie O’Brien who had hit a single to right field earlier in the inning.

FSU loaded the bases in the fifth without recording an out, but NC State starter Emily Weiman got out of the jam by inducing a line out, ground out and a strikeout to end the inning.

The Wolfpack scored five runs in the bottom of the fifth to end the day for FSU starter Lacey Waldrop. After posting a leadoff strikeout, Waldrop issued three straight walks as Jessica Burroughs came on in relief. Burroughs forced a fly out to the first batter, but followed with a bases-loaded walk to Ross and a grand slam to Meredith Burroughs, giving the Wolfpack an 8-4 lead after five innings.

Waldrop (21-4) allowed only three hits, but gave up six runs, five earned, along with four walks and four strikeouts over 4.1 innings of work in the loss. Burroughs pitched the final 1.2 innings of the game, surrendering three runs on two hits with two walks.

NC State added another run in the bottom of the sixth on a sacrifice fly to left field by Davis. For the second straight day, Alex Kossoff made a home-run-stealing catch in left, but it allowed Hannah Yeager to score from third on the play and make it 9-4 NC State.

Weiman wrapped up the game for the Wolfpack in the circle, tossing a 7.0-inning victory to move to 17-10 on the season. She scattered nine hits and six walks, allowing just four runs as her defense turned two double plays in the game and the Seminoles left nine runners on base.

No. 10 Noles Fall To No. 3 Florida.
The Gators defeat Florida State, 5-1, on Wednesday night at JoAnne Graf Field.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - A record crowd of 1,685 came out to JoAnne Graf Field on April 8 and saw a matchup of top-10 in-state rivals. No. 3 Florida (37-4) outlasted No. 8/10 Florida State (33-10) to defeat the Seminoles, 5-1, as part of the "Share A Little Sunshine Showdown".

"It was great to see the fans out here tonight as we played the defending national champions," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Lauren (Haeger) threw a great game for them and is a competitor in the circle. I thought that was awesome that we were in it right to the very last at bat. You don't get many games like this to see where you stand against top five competition and I think that we're just going to continue to grow as a program."

Bailey Castro got Florida on the scoreboard with a leadoff home run in the second inning. The Gators added another run in the inning on an infield RBI single by Justine McLean.

Bailey Schinella (0-1) started the game in the circle for Florida State and pitched the first 2.0 innings, allowing two runs on three hits with two walks and a strikeout. Jessica Burroughs came on in relief and pitched the next 4.1 innings for the Seminoles as they utilized the pitcher-designated player swap rule.

Florida made it 3-0 in the top of the third on a bases-loaded walk by Aubree Munro.

The Noles cut the lead to 3-1 in the third inning as Victoria East led off the frame with a double to right center. She moved up to third on a sacrifice bunt by Macey Cheatham and came in to score on an infield RBI single by Morgan Klaevemann. The single extended Klaevemann's hitting streak to 10 games.

The Gators added one run each in the fourth and the fifth by way of an RBI single by Nicole DeWitt and a solo home run by Castro, respectively.

Florida starter Lauren Haeger (17-0) stayed in control throughout the complete-game victory, scattering six hits and two walks as she allowed just one run to go with seven strikeouts on the night.

Burroughs gave up six hits and three runs with five walks and six strikeouts in her 4.1-inning appearance. Freshman Korina Rosario made her first career appearance in the circle to close out the game, retiring both batters she faced, including a strikeout of UF's Kelsey Stewart.

Seminoles Fall To Louisville.
The Cardinals score an unearned run in the bottom of the sixth and hold on for a 1-0 victory over Florida State.

LOUISVILLE, KY – In the first meeting of No. 8/10 Florida State and Louisville as members of the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Cardinals (24-12, 12-4 ACC) outlasted the Seminoles (33-11, 13-3 ACC), earning a 1-0 victory on April 11 at Ulmer Stadium.

“Tonight came down to execution,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We had more hits, more walks, more baserunners than Louisville, but it doesn’t matter when they have more runs. We gave them extra opportunities on offense with some fielding errors and couldn’t bring in our own runners once we got them on base.

“Louisville is a scrappy team and battled to the end. We have two more games against them and will need to take advantage of our opportunities to be successful.”

There were several baserunners in the early going, but both teams struggled to score the first run of the game. Louisville left two runners on in the first, second and fourth innings, while Florida State stranded two in the first and three in the third.

Louisville finally opened the scoring in the bottom of the sixth inning, plating an unearned run to take a 1-0 lead. Hailey Smith led off the inning and reached on a fielding error and later moved up to third base on two ground outs. She came in to score on an RBI single to center by Brittany Sims.

The Seminoles had at least one batter reach base in every inning, including the leadoff batter in the first three frames, but couldn’t get the big hit when they needed it most. Florida State stranded a total of nine batters in the game.

Maryssa Becker improved to 10-4 on the season with the complete-game victory, allowing four hits, seven walks and posting two strikeouts in the shutout.

Lacey Waldrop (21-5) took the loss, giving up one unearned run on three hits to go along with two walks and five strikeouts over 6.0 innings.

Victoria Daddis finished 2-for-3 with a single in the fourth inning and a double in the sixth inning. Morgan Klaevemann drew a game-high three walks and Alex Powers added two free passes as well. Ellie Cooper and Maddie O’Brien also registered base hits.

Florida State Overpowers Louisville To Even Series.
The Seminoles offense tallies 14 hits in a 9-1 win against the Cardinals.

LOUISVILLE, KY - Hammering out a season-high 14 hits, No. 8/10 Florida State (34-11, 14-3 ACC) evened the series with Louisville (24-13, 12-5 ACC) with a 9-1 victory over the Cardinals on April 12 at Ulmer Stadium.

"Great night out of this team as everyone produced in the win," said head coach Lonni Alameda. "Up and down the lineup we were taking aggressive swings and getting base hits. And then Lacey and JB pitched well in the circle to keep the pressure on Louisville. A nice win to even the series, but we have one more tomorrow before heading home."

The Seminoles got on the board in the top of the third inning on a two-out, two-RBI single by Jessica Warren. Ellie Cooper and Alex Powers had reached earlier on an infield single and a walk, respectively, and came in to score on the base hit to center by Warren. It marked Warren's 11th multi-RBI game of the season, tying her with Powers for the team lead.

Lacey Waldrop limited Louisville's chances from the start. She recorded at least one strikeout in each of the first four innings as the Cardinals didn't have a runner reach third base until the fifth inning.

Florida State added to its lead as Victoria Daddis led off the fourth with a triple to right field. She came in to score a batter later when Alex Kossoff chopped a single over the head of the UofL third baseman and into left field for an RBI single to make it 3-0 Seminoles.

Warren added to her RBI total in the fifth inning, blasting a two-run home run to right center to give Florida State a 5-0 lead. It was her 12th home run of the season, moving the freshman into a tie with Briana Hamilton (2012) and Yuruby Alicart (2006) for sixth place on the FSU single-season record list.

Jessica Burroughs entered to pitch for Florida State in the bottom of the fifth, inheriting two runners from Waldrop on a walk and a hit-by-pitch earlier in the frame. Burroughs posted a strikeout but a throwing error by Cooper on a double play attempt allowed Louisville to score an unearned run as her throw went wide of first base.

Waldrop improved to 22-5 on the season and finished with 4.0-plus innings of work, allowing just one hit, two walks and one unearned run with six strikeouts in the win.

Louisville made a pitching change in the top of the six as Madi Norman came on to replace starter Shelby McCombs. The Seminoles added two more runs in the sixth off Norman as Morgan Klaevemann and Powers each posted RBI singles to extend the Seminole lead to 7-1. McCombs re-entered in the circle to close out the inning and the game for Louisville.

Norman allowed three hits and one walk in 0.2 innings, giving up two earned runs in relief. McCombs (8-4) took the loss for the Cardinals, pitching 6.1 innings and giving up seven runs, six earned on 11 hits, three walks and posted four strikeouts.

Florida State scored two more runs in the seventh on RBIs by Kossoff and Klaevemann to make it 9-1 Seminoles. Both Kossoff and Klaevemann finished with three hits in the game, tying a career high in the category for both of them. Victoria East and Daddis ended with two hits apiece.

Burroughs wrapped up the game in the circle for FSU, tossing the final 3.0 innings to earn her second save of the season. She allowed just one baserunner on a walk in the sixth inning and registered four strikeouts.

FSU Posts A Pair Of Run-Rule Victories Over UVa.
The Seminoles sweep Saturday’s doubleheader against the Cavaliers, taking game one, 9-1 in six innings, and posting a five-inning, 8-0 win in game two.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – As the offense exploded for 17 runs, No. 10/11 Florida State (36-11, 16-3 ACC) took both games of the April 18 doubleheader against Virginia (15-35, 4-16 ACC). The Seminoles earned a 9-1 victory in six innings in game one and recorded an 8-0 win in five innings over the Cavaliers in game two. Florida State has posted four straight run-rule victories over Virginia, dating back to 2014.

“Great day today and even though we started off a bit slow in each game, we were able to turn it around and take two wins,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “Jessica and Lacey were confident in the circle and our defense made plays behind them all day. We made some adjustments to have some big innings at the plate, maybe a little later in the game than we’d like, but we came through with some solid hits in key situations.”

Florida State got on the board early in game one, taking a 1-0 lead after the first inning. Morgan Klaevemann led off with a bunt single and promptly stole second. She came in to score on an RBI single by Jessica Warren.

The Noles added to their lead in the third inning on an RBI single to left field by Ellie Cooper. She drove in Alex Powers who tripled off the wall in right earlier in the inning.

Virginia cut the lead to 2-1 in the fifth, plating an unearned run after Allison Davis reached on a single to left and came in to score on a Seminole fielding error.

FSU answered back with a pair of runs on a pair of UVa fielding errors in the bottom of the fifth to make it 4-1. Bailey Schinella scored after Victoria East hit into a fielder’s choice and got into a rundown between first and second. The UVa second baseman threw the ball away to allow Schinella to score from second base.

Alex Kossoff later reached on a bunt that was misplayed by the Cavalier third baseman to score East.

Klaevemann opened the bottom of the sixth by reaching on a fielding error and ending up at third base as the UVa left fielder couldn’t make the catch on a line drive. She would come in to score on the next batter as Maddie O’Brien had an RBI groundout to first base to make it 5-1 Seminoles.

Warren followed with a solo home run to extend the FSU lead to 6-1. The Noles continued the inning and loaded the bases on a walk by Powers, a single to right by Cooper and a fielder’s choice by Schinella. East ended the game with a bases-clearing double to left center to give the Noles the 9-1, six-inning victory.

Lacey Waldrop improved to 23-5 on the season, tossing 6.0 innings while scattering four hits and two walks. She struck out five and gave up just one unearned run. Waldrop has not surrendered an earned run in her last 19.0 innings and lowered her season ERA to 1.29.

UVa starter Alex Fomby (3-12) took the loss, giving up nine runs, six earned, on 10 hits with five walks and two strikeouts.

In game two, the Seminoles jumped out in front in the first inning again as Cooper drove a two-RBI triple into right center, bringing in Klaevemann and Warren who had reached earlier in the inning on a walk and a base hit to left, respectively. Along with game one, it marked the 15th time that the Seminoles have scored in the first inning and FSU is 15-0 this season in those games.

Seminole starter Jessica Burroughs started hot in the circle for the Noles, posting nine strikeouts in the first four innings, including three-strikeout innings in the second and fourth.

After giving up two runs in the first, Virginia starter Aimee Chapdelaine settled in and retired 11 of the next 13 Seminole batters along with two strikeouts as she kept Florida State off the board until the fifth inning.

FSU broke out for six runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to secure the 8-0 run-rule victory. Warren, Cooper and Rylan Harvey each posted RBIs in the inning and East registered a two-run single as well. Bella D’Errico also scored on a wild pitch after pinch-running for O’Brien. Klaevemann added a single in the inning to extend her team-high hitting streak to 13 games.

UVa’s Chapdelaine (4-3) earned the loss giving up eight runs on seven hits with five walks and two strikeouts in 4.1 innings of work.

Burroughs dominated the UVa hitters, tallying 12 strikeouts in the 5.0-inning shutout to improve to 13-5 on the season. She gave up just one hit – her second one-hitter of the season – and walked two batters. She has recorded at least 11 strikeouts in six appearances in 2015 and has 167 total strikeouts in 131.1 innings pitched this season.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – As the offense exploded for 17 runs, No. 10/11 Florida State (36-11, 16-3 ACC) took both games of the April 18 doubleheader against Virginia (15-35, 4-16 ACC).

Seniors Carry Florida State To Sweep of Virginia.
Lacey Waldrop, Maddie O’Brien, Bailey Schinella and the Seminoles close out the series against the Cavaliers with an 8-0 win in five innings.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Capping off a trio of excellent careers, seniors Maddie O’Brien, Bailey Schinella and Lacey Waldrop showed how much they mean to the Florida State softball program as they each contributed in the five-inning, 8-0 win over Virginia (15-36, 4-17 ACC) on April 19.

The victory on Senior Day gave the Seminoles (37-11, 17-3 ACC) their fourth sweep of an ACC opponent this season and they improved to 21-0-3 in their last 24 series against conference foes dating back to 2012.

“This group has worked so hard to be the example of what it is to be a Florida State Seminole,” said head coach Lonni Alameda. “They strive to be there for each other, both on and off the field and represent the GATE. Their leadership has been outstanding, and what they have given to this team and this program will not be forgotten anytime soon.”

Waldrop made her 159th career pitching appearance on Sunday, but it was her first time in the batting lineup as the two-time All-American was able to convince Coach Alameda to let her hit on Senior Day. At the plate, Waldrop hit a hard groundout in her first at bat and wrapped up the day with an RBI single in the fifth.

“It was really fun,” said Waldrop. “It was definitely different. I’m not used to seeing the ball come from that way, but I could definitely tell, as a pitcher, the different spins, so I think that was helpful. But it was so much fun and I’m glad the coaches let me do that on Senior Day.”

In the circle, Waldrop tossed a 5.0-inning shutout, allowing just three baserunners on two infield hits and a walk. She registered seven strikeouts and improved to 24-5 on the year and has not allowed an earned run in 24.0 consecutive innings.

Schinella walked and came in to score on Waldrop’s single in the fifth. She is fourth on the team with 23 walks and has scored 21 runs this season.

“It was definitely emotional, I didn’t really expect to be this emotional about it,” Schinella said. “But it is a good emotion. I am very grateful for this opportunity I’ve had here. I’m proud to be a Seminole and I’m so thankful that Coach recruited me.”

O’Brien got the offense going for FSU early as she drove in an RBI with a single in the first and added a two-run home run in the second inning. She added a walk in the fifth inning to push her season total to 60.

“My mom told me yesterday, ‘You’re going to hit a home run tomorrow. I can feel it.’,” said O’Brien. “To hit it, it was surreal and I was so glad that it was a special day.

“This is where I wanted to come and for Coach Alameda to give me that opportunity and teach me that I’m representing Florida State and not O’Brien, that’s proven everything. I’m just very fortunate to be here.”

Morgan Klaevemann had a career day at the plate for the Seminoles as she was 3-for-3 with two RBI, including two triples, and scored three runs. She also stole two bases as she improved her batting average to .398 on the season.

Alex Powers walked on all three plate appearances on Sunday to give her 44 for the season. Victoria Daddis and Jessica Warren added RBI singles in the fifth as well as the Seminoles secured the run-rule victory.

UVa’s Alex Formby took the loss and moved to 3-13 on the season, giving up eight runs on eight hits with nine walks and three strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

No. 10/11 Florida State Defeated By No. 1 Florida.
The Seminoles fall to the Gators, 5-0.

GAINESVILLE, FL - Closing out the Share A Little Sunshine Showdown, No. 10/11 Florida State (37-12) fell by a score of 5-0 to No. 1 Florida (44-4) at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium on April 22.

"Tough night for us against a quality team," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We couldn't get our offense going and Florida took advantage of the opportunities we gave them. It was a great environment and learning experience for this young team as these are the kinds of teams and crowds we'll face in the postseason."

Florida pushed across a run in the bottom of the first inning on an RBI groundout by Lauren Haeger to score Nicole DeWitt. DeWitt was hit by a pitch earlier in the inning and had moved up to third on an infield single and a wild pitch.

The Noles threatened in the second inning as Alex Powers led off with base hit to left and Ellie Cooper followed with a push bunt single to second base. FSU was held off the board after UF turned a double play ended the inning with a strikeout.

Florida made it 3-0 in the third inning on a two-run single by Haeger to left field. The Gators added two more in the bottom of the fifth inning via a passed ball and a sacrifice bunt to end the evening for FSU starter Lacey Waldrop.

Waldrop took the loss and moved to 24-6 on 4.1 innings pitched, allowing six hits, five runs, three earned with one walk and four strikeouts. Jessica Burroughs pitched very well in relief as she retired all five batters she faced and recorded two strikeouts.

Haeger started in the circle for the Gators and pitched the first five innings before being relieved by Aleshia Ocasio. Haeger (21-0) gave up four hits and posted four strikeouts without surrendering a walk or a run in the victory. She also had three RBI from the plate to help her cause.

Ocasio pitched the final 2.0 innings for UF to secure the victory. She allowed only one baserunner on a walk to Bailey Schinella in the seventh inning.

A single by Morgan Klaevemann in the third marked her 15th-straight game with a base hit. Powers led the Seminoles with two hits, adding a single to left in the fourth inning.

Florida State Earns Third-Straight ACC Regular Season Championship.
The No. 10/11 Seminoles post a pair of one-run victories at Georgia Tech on April 25 to secure their third consecutive regular season ACC title.

ATLANTA, GA – For the third time in a row, the Florida State softball team earned the regular season ACC title and will be the No. 1 seed at the 2015 ACC Championships on May 7-9 in Blacksburg, Va. The No. 10/11 Seminoles (39-12, 19-3 ACC) secured the title after a pair of one run victories against Georgia Tech (16-33, 6-17 ACC) on April 25. FSU came from behind to take game one, 2-1 in eight innings, and held on to win game two, 3-2.

“Great job out of this family to battle and never quit today,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “One of our goals this season was to win the ACC regular season and while we didn’t have out best games today, they fought through some struggles to accomplish that goal. Tomorrow’s game will be a great chance to see how each team makes adjustments as we close out the series.”

Georgia Tech took a quick 1-0 lead in game one as Samantha Pierannunzi led off the bottom of the first with a home run to left field.

The Seminoles had several opportunities at the plate as they had multiple runners on base in each of the first three innings, but all were left stranded. GT starter Kylie Kleinschmidt was impressive from the circle and did not allow a base hit until Victoria East knocked a single back up the middle with two outs in the top of the sixth inning.

Seminole pitcher Lacey Waldrop settled in after the first inning home run and allowed just three baserunners on two singles and a walk from the second through the sixth inning.

FSU tied the game in the seventh inning as Alex Kossoff led off with a walk and she moved up to second on a sacrifice bunt by Macey Cheatham. Morgan Klaevemann slapped an infield single to the second baseman, putting runners on the corners and extending her hitting streak to 16 games.

Kossoff came in to score and tie the game at 1-1 on the next at bat as Kleinschmidt’s pitch to Maddie O’Brien was in the dirt and went to the backstop as a wild pitch. GT ended the threat with a strikeout and a groundout.

The Jackets were able to get two runners on base with two outs in the bottom of the seventh on a walk and a base hit, but Waldrop handled a groundout to the circle to force extra innings.

In the FSU half of the eighth, Alex Powers led off with a walk and was pinch-run for by Bella D’Errico. D’Errico moved up to second on a wild pitch and stole third base with two outs in the inning. Lauren Harris gave the Seminoles a 2-1 lead as she blooped a single behind the pitcher, allowing D’Errico to score from third.

Waldrop retired Georgia Tech in order in the bottom of the eighth to secure the victory and move to 25-6 on the season. She allowed one run on five hits and three walks over 8.0 innings to go along with six strikeouts.

GT’s Kleinschmidt (6-21) took the loss after she gave up two runs on three hits with seven walks and nine strikeouts in 8.0 innings.

Florida State wasted no time to take the lead in game two as O’Brien blasted the first pitch of her at bat in the top of the first for a solo home run to right field. It was O’Brien’s 50th home run of her career as the Seminoles took an early 1-0 lead over Georgia Tech.

Korina Rosario pushed the FSU lead to 3-0 in the top of the fourth as she blasted a two-run home run to right field for the first home run of her career. She brought in Cooper who had reached earlier in the inning on a base hit and also stole second base.

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs pitched well early, giving up just three hits and a walk in the first three frames, but ran into some trouble in the fourth. Georgia Tech was able to load the bases with one out on a pair of walks and a base hit. Burroughs was relieved by Bailey Schinella after allowing a walk to cut the FSU lead to 3-1.

Schinella allowed a walk to the first batter she faced to make it 3-2 Florida State, but got out of the jam with a strikeout and a pop out.

Burroughs finished with 3.1 innings pitched, four hits, four walks and four strikeouts as she gave up two runs. Schinella (1-1) tossed 1.2 scoreless innings of relief without surrendering a hit with one walk and one strikeout to get the win.

Georgia Tech pitcher Christina Biggerstaff (7-7) tossed a complete game in the loss, giving up three runs on six hits with three walks and six strikeouts.

Waldrop pitched the final 2.0 innings for FSU to earn her first save of the season. She scattered three hits and two walks and recorded one strikeout without surrendering a run.

Even though Waldrop earned the statistical save, Klaevemann made two huge plays in the sixth and seventh to preserve the victory. With a GT runner on second base with no outs in the sixth, the freshman centerfielder tracked down a single up the middle and threw home to retire Kelsey Chisholm at the plate for the first out. Waldrop ended the inning with a ground out and strikeout.

In the seventh, after the Jackets were able to get runners on first and third with one out, Klaevemann caught a fly ball to center for out number two and fired home to retire Draven Sonnen as she attempted to tag for a game-ending double play.

Klaevemann now has four outfield assists on the season and also recorded a single in the seventh inning of game two to push her hitting streak up to 17 games.

Jessica Warren Carries Florida State To Series Sweep.
The freshman third baseman goes 3-for-3 with two home runs as Florida State takes game three over Georgia Tech by a score of 8-1.

ATLANTA, GA – The No. 10/11 Florida State softball team (40-12, 20-3 ACC) wrapped up its ACC regular season schedule with an 8-1 sweep of Georgia Tech (16-34, 6-18 ACC) on April 26 at Mewborn Field. The Seminoles were led by freshman Jessica Warren who went 3-for-3 from the plate with two home runs as FSU posted 10 total hits, including four for extra bases.

The victory gave Florida State its 40th win of the 2015 season, marking the 28th time in program history that the Seminoles have won at least 40 games in season.

The Seminoles have not lost a conference series since 2012, posting a 22-0-3 record with 17 sweeps in their last 25 ACC series.

“It was exciting to see this team make adjustments from yesterday and close out the series with a win,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We were more aggressive at the plate, got our swings off on good pitches and drove in runs in key situations. Jessica and Lacey pitched well and kept Georgia Tech off balance. Great job out the entire team to execute the game plan today.”

Warren opened the Florida State scoring in the top of the first with a solo home run to left field.

The Seminoles pushed the lead to 2-0 in the third inning as Morgan Klaevemann increased her hitting streak to 18 games on a one-out bunt single to third base. Klaevemann moved up to third on a wild pitch and a fly out to right field. Warren then posted her second RBI of the game with a single up the middle.

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs retired seven of the first eight batters of the game, but Georgia Tech cut the lead to 2-1 in the bottom of the third on a solo home run by Maddie Lionberger.

Burroughs (14-5) was relieved by Lacey Waldrop to open the fifth inning and finished with 4.0 innings pitched as she gave up one run on two hits with two walks and three strikeouts in the win.

Georgia Tech pitcher Kylie Kleinschmidt settled in and retired eight of 10 batters from the second to the sixth inning before allowing another solo home run to Warren. It was Warren’s second home run of the game and 15th of the season, moving her into a tie with Courtney Senas (2014) for second place on the FSU single-season list.

The Noles continued to bat in the sixth as Alex Powers walked and was pinch-run for by Bella D’Errico. Ellie Cooper followed with a base hit to left and both runners moved into scoring position on a sacrifice bunt from Alex Kossoff.

Georgia Tech made a pitching change and brought in Christina Biggerstaff to replace Kleinschmidt. Biggerstaff allowed an RBI single to Bailey Schinella as she knocked an hit to left to give FSU a 4-1 lead, but the inning ended as Cooper was thrown out at the plate on the play.

Florida State broke it open in the seventh inning as Korina Rosario led off with a walk. Macey Cheatham followed with a bunt single, but the throw from GT’s Biggerstaff went wide of first base to allow Rosario to score and make it 5-1 Noles.

Klaevemann followed with an RBI single to right to score Cheatham, extending the FSU lead to 6-1. After an intentional walk to Warren, Cooper ripped a two-out, two-run double to left to score Klaevemann and Warren and push the FSU advantage to 8-1.

Waldrop closed out the game to secure the win and earn her second save of the season. She allowed only one baserunner on a single in the fifth inning and posted two strikeouts without giving up a walk over 3.0 shutout innings.

Kleinschmidt (6-22) gave up four runs on six hits over 5.1 innings. She struck out six and gave up two walks in the loss. Biggerstaff pitched 1.1 innings, giving up four runs on four hits with three walks and a strikeout. GT’s Emily Anderson faced one batter in the seventh and ended the inning with a fly out.@

Florida State Downs Georgia State.
The No. 10/11 Seminoles earn a 6-3 road win at Georgia State.

ATLANTA, GA – The No. 10/11 Florida State softball team (41-12) closed out its Atlanta road trip with a 6-3 win at Georgia State (32-20) on April 27. Lacey Waldrop tossed a three-hitter from the circle and Jessica Warren paced the Seminole offense with three RBIs, including a two-run home run.

“Nice win today,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We got down early but were able to trust the process and keep fighting for next pitch and were able to be successful. Georgia State is a quality team and showed why they have had such a great season.”

Morgan Klaevemann opened the game with a bunt single in the first inning to extend her hitting streak to 19 games, setting a Florida State record.

Georgia State plated a run in the bottom of the first as the leadoff hitter Taylor Anderson reached on a walk and moved to second with a sacrifice bunt. She came in to score on an RBI single by Lauren Coleman.

Warren gave the Seminoles the lead in the top of the fourth as the freshman blasted a two-run home run to right field. It was her 16th home run of the season, giving her sole possession of second place in a single season in FSU history. Warren trails only Maddie O’Brien, who hit 24 home runs in 2014.

Waldrop controlled the Georgia State hitters following the first inning run. She retired 12 of the next 14 hitters she faced from the first to the fifth inning and was aided by an inning-ending double play in the fourth.

Florida State added three runs in the top of the fifth to take a 5-1 lead. Bailey Schinella got things started with a leadoff single to left and she was pinch-run for at first by Lauren Harris. The Noles then loaded the bases on back-to-back singles by Victoria Daddis and Klaevemann.

O’Brien drove a pitch into right field for a two-RBI single, prompting Georgia State to make a pitching change. The Panthers brought in Katie Worley to replace starter Taylor Thorpe.

Warren swung at the first pitch from Worley and hit an RBI groundout to short, allowing Klaevemann to score from third to push the Seminole lead to 5-1.

Thorpe (16-5) finished with 4.1 innings pitched and gave up five runs on seven hits with one walk and one strikeout in the loss. Worley pitched the final 2.2 innings for the Panthers, giving up just one hit and an unearned run with two walks and two strikeouts.

Macey Cheatham posted the first extra-base hit of her career as she led off the seventh inning with a double off the wall in left field. She moved up to third on a passed ball and scored on a wild pitch later in the inning to make it 6-1 Florida State.

Georgia State rallied in the bottom of the seventh for two runs on two hits with two walks. The Panthers had the tying run at the plate with two outs before Warren fielded a groundout to third to end the game.

Waldrop (26-6) finished the game in the circle for the Noles, tossing a complete-game three-hitter with three runs, two earned, five walks and one strikeout. The win was Waldrop’s 107th of her career, tying her with Leslie Malerich (1999-2002) for the Florida State record.

Lacey Waldrop Becomes FSU Wins Leader As Noles Defeat UNF.
The senior pitcher earned her 108th career victory in a 15-1 win at North Florida.

JACKSONVILLE, FL - Opening the game with a pair of seven-run innings, No. 9/10 Florida State (42-12) cruised to a 15-1 win in five innings at North Florida (30-26) on May 3. The 15 runs scored marked a season high and eight different Seminoles posted a base hit while nine players scored at least one run in the game.

Senior pitcher Lacey Waldrop earned the victory in relief for the 108th win of her career, passing Leslie Malerich (1999-2002) for the FSU all-time career record.

"This was a great confidence-building game as we head into the ACC tournament," sad FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Our hitters were aggressive at the plate and we were able to get a lot of our bench players extra game experience, which will be key in the postseason.

"I'm so proud of Lacey, not only for today, but for her entire career. She works tirelessly to be a great teammate and a smart competitor. Setting pitching records at Florida State can be very difficult with its long history of quality pitchers, but it just speaks volumes to her passion to be the best she can be."

Florida State exploded out to a 7-0 lead in the top of the first inning as 11 Seminoles came to the plate. Jessica Warren and Ellie Cooper each hit RBI doubles in the inning while Maddie O'Brien and Alex Kossoff posted RBI singles.

Victoria Daddis added an RBI groundout and Morgan Klaevemann extended her FSU-record hitting streak to 20 games with a single up the middle that scored two runs on an error by the UNF catcher. It marked the 19th time that Florida State has scored in the first inning this season and the Seminoles are 19-0 in those games.

The Seminoles matched that offensive output in the second inning, plating another seven runs in the frame. All seven runs came with two outs in the inning. Kossoff added her second RBI single of the game and Rylan Harvey hit a pinch-hit two-RBI double off the top of the wall in left. Klaevemann drove in a run on a single to left field and O'Brien capped the scoring with a three-run home run to right field to make it 14-0 Florida State after two innings.

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs tossed the first two innings for the Seminoles and allowed only one hit - a double in the first inning. She recorded three strikeouts in the second inning, marking the 21st time this season that she's posted three strikeouts in an inning.

O'Brien added a solo home run in the fourth inning for her first multi-home run game of the season and the sixth of her career. She finished 3-for-4 from the plate with a season-high five runs batted in.

Waldrop (27-6) pitched the next 2.2 innings, allowing just one run and one hit with two strikeouts to earn the win. In addition to becoming the FSU wins leader, she now moves into sole possession of third place on the ACC career wins list.

"It feels amazing to get in the record books and it is just a testament to how great of a program we've had these last four years with how many wins we've gotten as a team," Waldrop said. "I feel like Coach trusts me in the circle to put me out there and I'm really thankful for that. My teammates play great defense behind me and we've really competed these last four years, grown up as team together and it is really cool to have my name in the record books."

Korina Rosario closed out the game in the circle by inducing a lineout to Warren in the fifth. The Seminoles emptied the bench in the fourth and fifth innings, bringing in Bella D'Errico to play left field, Lauren Harris in center, Katie Baker at second base, Victoria East at first base and Daddis at catcher.

Kaylie Wallace (13-11) took the loss for the Ospreys, giving up seven runs, three earned, on five hits over 1.0 innings. Geneva Santos pitched the first two outs of the second inning and allowed seven runs on four hits. Kayla Goff finished the game for UNF and tossed 3.1 innings with five hits with one run and two strikeouts.

Florida State Defeats Boston College In ACC Quarterfinal.
The No. 9/10 Seminoles earned a 4-2 victory over Boston College at the ACC Championship.

BLACKSBURG, VA - The No. 9/10 Florida State softball team (42-12) scored three runs in the fourth and one in the fifth inning to take down Boston College (27-23) by a score of 4-2 in the quarterfinals of the 2015 ACC Championship.

"It is great to come out and get the first win of the tournament under our belt," said Florida State head coach Lonni Alameda. "BC played a great game and were competitive to the end. Bailey came through for us at the plate in some big spots and Lacey and JB did an excellent job in the circle. We'll take the afternoon to rest up and prepare for another quality ACC opponent tomorrow."

Florida State starter Lacey Waldrop faced the minimum through the first 4.0 innings with seven strikeouts. She struck out the side in the top of the third and also initiated an inning-ending double play in the second inning.

The Seminoles got on the board in the fourth as Jessica Warren led things off by being hit with a pitch for the 14th time this season. Alex Powers followed with a walk and Ellie Cooper's sacrifice bunt attempt was dropped at first base, allowing Warren to score and make it 1-0 Florida State.

Bailey Schinella extended the Seminoles' lead to 3-0 later in the inning with a two-RBI double to the gap in left center to score Cooper and Bella D'Errico, who pinch ran for Powers.

Boston College made it 3-2 in the fifth inning after Tatiana Cortez led off with a single and Chloe Sharabba hit a home run to left field. Jordan Chimento followed with a double to left center to chase Waldrop from the game.

Jessica Burroughs entered the circle for FSU and retired the first two batters she faced with a fly out and a strikeout. After allowing a walk, Burroughs ended the inning with another strikeout. Waldrop (28-6) finished with 4.0 innings pitched, giving up two runs on four hits with seven strikeouts in the victory.

The Noles added to their lead in the fifth as Schinella drove in her third RBI of the game on a single through the right side to make it 4-2 Florida State. She brought in O'Brien who led off the inning with a single to right field. Powers added another walk in the inning and finished with three for the game. She now has 50 walks on the season.

BC threatened in the top of the seventh, putting two runners on with a single and a walk, but Burroughs closed out the game with two strikeouts and a fly out to centerfield. Burroughs earned her third save of the season, registering seven strikeouts over the final 3.0 innings of the game, giving up just one hit and two walks.

Boston College's Allyson Frei (19-15) took the loss, giving up four runs, three earned on seven hits with four walks and six strikeouts over 5.0 innings. Jessica Dreswick pitched the sixth inning for the Eagles, allowing just one walk.

Morgan Klaevemann had a base hit in the first inning to extend her school-record hitting streak to 21 games. She ended the day 2-for-4 from the plate as she had another single in the third inning.

With the win, the Seminoles advance to play in the ACC Semifinals against the winner of No. 4 Louisville and No. 5 NC State.

Seminoles Reach ACC Championship Game With Win Over NC State.
No. 9/10 Florida State advances to its third-straight title game with an 11-4 win against NC State.

BLACKSBURG, VA - Battling back from an early 3-0 deficit, the No. 9/10 Florida State softball team (44-12) recorded an 11-4 win over NC State (35-20) on May 8 to advance to its third-straight ACC Championship game. Nine different Seminoles scored a run in the ballgame as Florida State scored 10 of its eleven runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings.

"I loved how our team fought and competed today," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "NC State took an early lead, but we knew if we stayed in it and went pitch-by-pitch that we would have opportunities to be successful.

"It was a full team win today, as Jessica pitched an amazing game in relief and we had quality at bats up and down the lineup. Bailey and AP had big games for us and Victoria Daddis kept us in the game early on. Tomorrow we have the chance to accomplish another one of our season goals - winning the ACC tournament."

NC State got on the board in the top of the first and took a 3-0 lead after a Tyler Ross solo home run, an RBI double by Lana van Dyken and an RBI single from Maggie Hawkins.

Jessica Burroughs came in to relieve FSU starter Lacey Waldrop after the first inning. Waldrop gave up three runs on five hits without a walk or a strikeout.

The Seminoles plated a run in the second inning after Alex Powers led off with a walk. She moved to third base on groundouts by Ellie Cooper and Alex Kossoff and came in to score on an RBI infield single by Victoria Daddis.

Florida State scored three runs to take the lead in the bottom of the fourth inning following another leadoff walk to Powers. Bella D'Errico pinch-ran at first and moved up to third on a sacrifice bunt attempt by Cooper that was mishandled by the NC State first baseman. D'Errico scored on the next pitch from NC State starter Emily Weiman as her ball went in the dirt for a wild pitch.

Daddis stepped in later in the inning and hit her fourth home run of the season, a two-run shot to left field to give FSU a 4-3 lead.

NC State battled back to tie it at 4-4 in the top of the fifth on a pair of doubles by Molly Hutchison and Van Dyken.

Florida State regained the lead in the fifth inning on a two-run single by Powers, scoring Maddie O'Brien and Bailey Schinella, who had reached earlier on a walk and a double, respectively. The walk to O'Brien was her 66th of the season, moving her into a tie for 19th place on the NCAA single-season walks list.

The Seminoles put the game out of reach in the sixth inning, scoring five runs to take an 11-4 advantage. Lauren Harris and Macey Cheatham opened the inning by reaching base on two separate NC State errors. A triple to left center by Morgan Klaevemann brought both of them in to score to make it 8-4 Florida State. The base hit extended Klaevemann's FSU-record hitting streak to 22 games.

O'Brien gave FSU a 10-4 lead on the next pitch as she blasted a two-run home run to right field to chase Weiman from the game. Weiman (28-15) took the loss, allowing 10 runs, eight earned, on seven hits with three walks and four strikeouts in 5.0 innings of work.

She was replaced in the circle by Courtney Mirabella and the sophomore pitcher gave up back-to-back base hits on a single to Bailey Schinella and a double to Powers. Cooper recorded a sacrifice fly to left field to score Schinella and make it 11-4.

Burroughs (15-5) closed out the game to earn the win for Florida State, posting six solid innings of relief. The sophomore gave up just one run on six hits with two walks and five strikeouts.

The Seminoles will now play in the ACC Championship game for the third straight year and for the sixth time in seven seasons under Coach Alameda. FSU will face either North Carolina or Pitt.

FLORIDA STATE 6, PITTSBURGH 2
05/09/2015, ACC Championship, Blacksburg, Va

Florida State Wins 2015 ACC Championship.
The No. 9/10 Seminoles scored four runs in the sixth inning to post a 6-2 win over Pitt and earn the 13th ACC Championship in program history.

BLACKSBURG, VA – Scoring four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning, the No. 9/10 Florida State softball team (45-12) secured a 6-2 win over Pitt (35-20) in the 2015 ACC Championship game on May 9 at Tech Softball Park. It marks the 13th conference championship in Florida State history and the second title in a row.

Jessica Burroughs pitched 4.2 scoreless innings of relief, while Jessica Warren had a pinch-hit two-RBI single in the sixth inning to give the Seminoles the lead for good. Burroughs was named the 2015 ACC Championship Most Valuable Player, and was joined on the ACC All-Tournament Team by Warren, Bailey Schinella, Alex Powers and Victoria Daddis.

“This is huge for us,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “All season we’ve been fighting to find our identity, often living in the shadow of last year. But what a great job of our upperclassmen of being the consistent example of who we need to be.

“Amazing job from Lacey to be a mentor to Jessica, and from Jessica for working her tail off to be here for the team at this time. For us, going into postseason, this is huge to have two wins where we needed late rallies to take the lead.”

The Seminoles opened the scoring with an RBI single from Powers to make it 1-0 FSU after the first inning. She scored Morgan Klaevemann, who had hit a single to left to leadoff the game. Klaevemann has now hit safely in 23 consecutive games, dating back to March 25.

Florida State scored in the first inning for the 20th time this season and are an undefeated, 20-0, in those games.

FSU added another run in the second inning as Alex Kossoff led off with a triple to the wall in right center. She came in to score a batter later as Victoria East knocked an RBI single through the right side of the infield to extend FSU’s lead to 2-0 after two innings.

Pitt got on the board in the third inning, sparked by a base hit by Maggie Sevilla and a throwing error by FSU starter Lacey Waldrop to allow runners to get to second and third with one out in the inning. McKayla Taylor stepped in and tied the game at 2-2 with a double to left field.

Burroughs entered the game to relieve Waldrop in the circle. Waldrop finished with 2.1 innings pitched and allowed two runs, one earned on three hits with two walks and three strikeouts. Burroughs got out of the inning without any further damage by inducing two pop outs to foul territory.

FSU threatened in the fourth inning after a leadoff walk by Daddis. Bella D’Errico came on to pinch run and quickly stole second base. She ended up on third on the play as the throw from Pitt catcher Kathryn Duran sailed wide. After a walk to Kossoff, East grounded to third base and Pitt’s Shelby Pickett tagged D’Errico and fired to first base for the inning-ending double play.

Pitt starter Savannah King was replaced in the circle going into the bottom of the fifth inning. The senior tossed 4.0 innings and gave up two runs on four hits with three walks and one strikeout. Kayla Harris entered the game to pitch for the Panthers.

The Seminoles looked to take advantage of Harris as they loaded the bases on three consecutive one-out walks to Maddie O’Brien, Schinella and Powers. However, a line out to third by Ellie Cooper allowed O’Brien to be doubled off the bag to end the inning.

The FSU sixth inning started with leadoff walks to Daddis and Kossoff. Warren, who had not played since the Boston College game on May 7 due to a lower leg injury, pinch-hit for East and drove a single to the wall in right center, easily scoring Daddis and Kossoff to give the Seminoles a 4-2 lead.

East re-entered at first for Warren and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt from Macey Cheatham. Klaevemann followed with her second hit of the game to left field that got past the fielder to score East and allow her to end up on third base. O’Brien made it 6-4 a batter later on a sacrifice fly to center.

Burroughs (16-5) closed out the game in the circle, retiring the last nine batters she faced, to earn the victory in relief. She allowed just one hit over 4.2 shutout innings and recorded six strikeouts without giving up a walk.

FLORIDA STATE 5, DARTMOUTH COLLEGE 1
05/15/2015, TALLAHASSEE, FL, NCAA

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

The Noles Take Down Dartmouth In Regional Opener.
No. 9 Florida State earned a 5-1 win over Dartmouth on the first day of the NCAA Tallahassee Regional.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - With a game that spanned nearly six hours, including a three-hour, forty-two minute weather delay in the third inning, No. 9 Florida State (46-12) defeated Dartmouth (25-17) by a score of 5-1 in the opening round of the NCAA Tallahassee Regional on May 15 at JoAnne Graf Field.

"This was an exciting game with a really good ball club like Dartmouth," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "I think when you get adversity with rain, lightning, and thunderstorms you have to test the character of both teams. It was really awesome to come back out there and get some more runs in order to get the win."

Florida State opened the scoring in the bottom of the first as Morgan Klaevemann led off the inning with a bunt single to extend her hitting streak to 24 games. Following a walk to Jessica Warren, Ellie Cooper gave the Seminoles a 2-0 lead with a two-RBI single to left field. It marked the 21st time this season that Florida State has scored in the first inning and FSU is an undefeated 21-0 in those games.

Dartmouth threatened in the second inning, loading the bases with one out on a base hit and two walks from Seminole starter Lacey Waldrop. The Big Green was held scoreless as Cooper completed an unassisted double play at second base. The sophomore second baseman caught a liner off the bat of Tiffany Dyson and stepped on the bag to end the inning.

Two walks and an FSU throwing error loaded the bases for the Big Green in the Dartmouth half of the third inning, but Waldrop was able to get out of the jam with a groundout to the circle.

Jessica Burroughs entered the game to pitch for Waldrop after two walks and two outs in the top of the fourth. Burroughs allowed an RBI single to the first batter she faced, Katie McEachern, as Dartmouth cut the lead to 2-1. The Noles got out of the inning with a groundout to Cooper at second base.

Waldrop ended the day with 3.2 innings pitched, allowing just one run on one hit with six walks and three strikeouts.

The Noles pushed their advantage out to 3-1 in the fourth inning on an RBI double by Klaevemann to score Alex Kossoff who had reached on a bunt single. Victoria Daddis also added a single to right field in the frame.

O'Brien made it 5-1 Florida State in the sixth inning with a two-run home run to right, her 12th of the season. She drove in Klaevemann who had singled and stole second base earlier in the inning. Klaevemann finished the day with two stolen bases and three hits, tying her career high in both categories.

Burroughs settled in and retired the next eight batters, including striking out the side in the sixth, after allowing the single in the fourth inning. It marked the 23rd time this year that Burroughs has posted three strikeouts in an inning. The sophomore earned the win and moved to 17-5 on the season, allowing just two baserunners on a single and a fielding error over 3.1 shutout innings with four strikeouts and zero walks.

Dartmouth's Kristen Rumley (15-11) took the loss and gave up five runs on 10 hits with two walks and five strikeouts in 6.0 innings.

Florida State Earns Seventh-Inning Comeback Win Over UCF.
A home run from Maddie O'Brien and an RBI triple from Alex Powers in the seventh inning gave the No. 9 Seminoles a 2-1 victory over UCF.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In dramatic fashion and in front of its home fans at JoAnne Graf Field, No. 9 Florida State (47-12) scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to defeat UCF (49-7) by a score of 2-1 in the winner's bracket game of the NCAA Tallahassee Regional.

Maddie O'Brien led off the seventh inning with a solo home run to left field and Alex Powers hit a walk-off RBI triple into the right field corner to score Jessica Warren and give the Seminoles a 2-1 victory.

"Outstanding ball club - UCF," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "(Shelby) Turnier is an outstanding pitcher. We knew it would be a battle and that's a good TV game, a good collegiate game. The belief until the very end is huge for our team and for everyone to step up off of the bench and get their jobs done was amazing.

"I can't say enough about our experience. (Maddie O'Brien) has been in that situation so many times and for her to trust herself and trust her at-bats, to come through for the team, it was awesome."

"I think if we do keep the one-pitch mentality, next-pitch mentality then that's when we are going to be successful," said Powers. "If we get caught up on the three times that I ended up not being successful for the team, then it wouldn't have allowed me to be successful the fourth time. So just keeping that next-pitch mentality is what keeps us going."

UCF starting pitcher Shelby Turnier (25-7) bent but would not break through six innings as she allowed FSU several chances that the Noles were unable to cash in. Florida State put multiple runners on base in each of the first, third, fourth, fifth and sixth innings, but could not scratch in a run.

Turnier was saddled with the loss, giving up two runs on four hits with a season-high nine walks and six strikeouts. She entered the game as the NCAA leader with a 0.77 ERA, and it marked just the sixth time this season that she allowed two or more earned runs in a game this year.

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs pitched very well, retiring 10 of the first 11 batters of the game with three strikeouts. Her lone blemish was a walk in the second inning before UCF took a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning on a solo home run by Farrah Sullivan.

Burroughs faced the minimum over the next 2.1 innings before allowing a single to left by Kahley Novak in the sixth. She was relieved to start the seventh inning by Korina Rosario and finished with 6.0 innings pitched, one run on two hits with one walk and six strikeouts.

Rosario allowed the first two runners of the seventh inning to reach on a single and a walk, prompting Florida State to make a pitching change. Bailey Schinella entered the circle and struck out the first batter she faced. Following a stolen base, Schinella intentionally walked Samantha McCloskey to load the bases with one out.

The Seminoles got out of the inning on two groundouts to Ellie Cooper at second base to end the threat and allow the Florida State to win it in the seventh. Schinella earned the win to move to 2-1 on the season.

FSU's Warren finished the game with four walks, setting a career high for the freshman third baseman. O'Brien drew two walks to push her season and NCAA-leading total to 70. Morgan Klaevemann extended her hitting-streak to 25 games with an infield single in the fifth inning and Cooper also posted a single in the fourth.

Super Seminoles! FSU Defeats UCF To Advance To NCAA Super Regionals.
Redshirt sophomore pitcher Jessica Burroughs tossed a two-hitter as No. 9 Florida State earned a 5-0 victory over UCF to win the 2015 NCAA Tallahassee Regional.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - For the third straight season, No. 9 Florida State (48-12) advanced to the super regional round of the NCAA Championships after earning a 5-0 victory over No. 13 UCF (50-9) on May 17 to clinch the 2015 NCAA Tallahassee Regional.

Seminole starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs (18-5) was nearly perfect, allowing just two base hits on a single in the second and seventh innings. She posted a total of six strikeouts as she retired 21 of the 23 UCF batters she faced.

"First off, like I said yesterday UCF - what an amazing program and season they had," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Kind of a bummer for it to work out for them to be here and not be able to host but what fight they had. It was awesome to compete against them and nothing is more exciting than having a true competitor on the other side of the field.

"We take really great pride in being a team that's smarter the second time around and from our freshman all the way up to our seniors being able to be consistent with that today and stick to their game plan was really awesome to see as a coach and I couldn't say more about Jessica Burroughs and doing what she's done for us this weekend and last weekend."

Morgan Klaevemann opened the game with a bunt single in the top of the first inning to extend her hitting streak to 26 games. The streak is tied for 24th all-time in NCAA history and is second in FSU and ACC history to Natasha Jacob's 28-game streak from April 4, 2005 to February 14, 2006. It marked the seventh time in Klaevemann's 15 games as a leadoff hitter that the freshman started the FSU first inning with a base hit.

The Seminoles got on the board in the third inning as Macey Cheatham placed an excellent bunt through the charging UCF defense to open the inning. Klaevemann followed with a double to left center and FSU loaded the bases with nobody out on a walk to Maddie O'Brien.

That ended the afternoon for UCF starter Shelby Turnier as Mackenzie Audas entered the game in the circle. Audas retired her first batter, Jessica Warren, on a fly out to left field, but it was deep enough for Cheatham to tag and score on the sacrifice fly and give the Seminoles a 1-0 lead.

After a hit-by-pitch to Alex Powers to reload the bases, Ellie Cooper came through with a sacrifice fly to center to give the Noles a 2-0 lead after three innings.

Florida State added three unearned runs in the top of the fourth to take a 5-0 lead. Cheatham drew a two-out walk, and came in to score on a throwing error by UCF's Farrah Sullivan on a grounder by Klaevemann. Following a walk to O'Brien, her 72nd of the season, Warren ripped a two-RBI double off the wall in left to extend the FSU lead.

Burroughs won her ninth straight decision and gave up zero runs for the fifth time in her last seven appearances, dating back to May 3 at North Florida. The Warner Robins, Ga., native has given up only one walk in her last 25.1 innings of work.

"I had the game plan to come out and attack the zone and all of the slappers, they have a lot of those, and feed my defense," Burroughs said. "I know they're back there shifting for me and just trust that my defense is going to be there for me and that my movement is going to break.

"At this point it's just throw what I have and go with my game plan and that's what happened today. My team was great on offense and got the lead. It took a lot of pressure off of me today and felt so good to come out and win and have a really loose game, it was really great."

Turnier (25-8) took the loss for UCF, allowing two runs on four hits over 2.0 innings with two walks and a strikeout. Audas finished the game for the Knights in the circle and limited FSU to one hit, but three unearned runs, with three walks and three strikeouts in 5.0 innings.

Florida State advances to the NCAA Super Regional round for the fourth time in program history and the third season in a row. It also marked the tenth win over ranked opponents for the Seminoles in 2015, giving Alameda 36 ranked wins since 2009, including 18 in the last two seasons.

TENNESSEE 3, FLORIDA STATE 2
05/21/2015, KNOXVILLE, TN, NCAA Super Regional

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

No. 9 FSU Falls To No. 8 Tennessee.
The Volunteers defeated the Seminoles, 3-2, in game one of the NCAA Knoxville Super Regional.

KNOXVILLE, TN - Scoring one run each in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings, No. 8 Tennessee (46-14) defeated No. 9 Florida State (48-13) by a score of 3-2 in the opening game of the NCAA Knoxville Super Regional on May 21.

UT's Meghan Gregg hit a walk-off RBI single in the seventh inning to score Lexi Overstreet and give the Volunteers a 1-0 advantage in the series and put Tennessee one game away from the 2015 Women's College World Series.

"Outstanding game, but we just ended up on the wrong side of it," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Tennessee continues to find a way to make plays and get wins. They are an excellent ball club and extremely competitive. Jessica did a great job for us in the circle and we just need to go back and get ready for two games tomorrow."

Florida State opened the scoring in the second inning as Ellie Cooper was hit by a pitch to lead off the frame. Bailey Schinella followed with a single to right off Tennessee starter Erin Gabriel. Victoria Daddis stepped in later in the inning and hit an RBI double down the left field line to score Cooper and give Florida State a 1-0 lead.

Jessica Warren made it 2-0 in the third inning, blasting her 17th home run of the season over the wall in right field on the first pitch of her at bat. Tennessee made a pitching change to bring Cheyanne Tarango, ending the day for Gabriel as she tossed 2.1 innings and gave up two runs on three hits with one walk and zero strikeouts.

Florida State starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs faced the minimum through the first 2.1 innings, allowing a single to Overstreet in the first inning but ending the inning with a double play. Tennessee managed two baserunners in the third on an FSU fielding error and another single by Overstreet, but two strikeouts from Burroughs and a fly out to center ended the inning.

The Seminoles got two runners on base in the top of the fifth on back-to-back singles by Maddie O'Brien and Warren. Tennessee made another pitching change to bring in starting right fielder, Rainey Gaffin. UT's Tarango allowed two hits and one walk in 2.0 shutout innings of relief. Gaffin ended the inning with a pair of groundouts.

Tennessee scored one run in the fifth inning as Gretchen Aucoin led off with a single to left and ended up on third after a walk and a fielder's choice. Aucoin scored on a wild pitch by Burroughs to cut the lead to 2-1 Florida State. The Volunteers loaded the bases with two outs later in the inning on a walk and a hit-by-pitch, but Burroughs got out of the jam by inducing a pop out to second from UT's Meghan Gregg.

The Volunteers tied the game in the sixth with a pair of two-out singles and a walk. Shaliyah Geathers' single to center knotted the game at 2-2, but her aggressive baserunning ended the inning as she was thrown out at second base on a relay by Morgan Klaevemann, Alex Powers and O'Brien.

UT's Gaffin shut down the Seminole offense, retiring all eight batters she faced with three strikeouts to allow Tennessee to come back and allow the Volunteers to win it in the bottom of the seventh. Gaffin moved to 16-3 on the season, throwing 33 pitches in 2.2 innings.

Burroughs (18-6) took the loss, giving up three runs, two earned on six hits with four walks and two strikeouts. She had won her last nine consecutive decisions and this was her first loss since March 25.

Klaevemann went 0-for-4 from the plate to end her hitting streak at 26 games. It is the second-longest hitting streak in Florida State history, trailing Natasha Jacob's 28-game streak from April 4, 2005 to February 14, 2006. Klaevemann's streak tied for the 24th longest streak in NCAA history and is also the second longest in ACC history.

FLORIDA STATE 6, TENNESSEE 1
05/22/2015, KNOXVILLE, TN, NCAA Super Regional

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

No. 9 Florida State Forces Game Three With A 6-1 Win.
The Seminoles hold off elimination with a 6-1 win over No. 8 Tennessee in game two of the NCAA Knoxville Super Regional.

KNOXVILLE, TN - Behind the big bat of freshman Jessica Warren, No. 9 Florida State (49-13) defeated No. 8 Tennessee (46-15) by a score of 6-1 to force game three of the NCAA Knoxville Super Regional on May 22. Warren went 3-for-3 from the plate with two home runs and three RBI as the Seminoles held off elimination and will play in a winner-take-all game later tonight at 7:15 p.m.

"One of the great aspects of this program is our ability to make adjustments," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "From game to game, inning to inning, pitch to pitch, we are able to process what has happened and adjust and execute better the next time the situation comes up. Huge win for this team on the road to force game three."

Florida State got the offense going immediately as two Seminoles did what they've been doing all season. Maddie O'Brien drew a four-pitch walk, her 73rd free pass of the season, and she came in to score on the 18th home run of the season by Jessica Warren to make it 2-0 FSU.

It was Warren's second home run of the Super Regional against UT starter Erin Gabriel, and the freshman is batting .800 (4-for-5) with two home runs, a triple and a walk in her career against the Tennessee pitcher.

Tennessee cut the lead to 2-1 with an unearned run in the third inning. Lexi Overstreet drew a one-out walk from FSU's Jessica Burroughs and moved up to second on a fielding error by Ellie Cooper. Meghan Gregg later knocked an RBI single to right to score Overstreet.

The Volunteers made a pitching change heading into the bottom of the third. Cheyanne Tarango entered the circle for Gabriel, who left the game after 2.0 innings, giving up two runs on one hit with one walk and one strikeout.

Warren led off the Seminole fourth inning with her second home run of the game and third of the Super Regional to make it 3-1 Florida State. It was her second game this season with multiple home runs, matching her output at Georgia Tech on April 26.

Consecutive base hits by the Noles on singles from Cooper and Bailey Schinella, as well as an RBI double from Victoria Daddis extended the FSU lead to 4-1 and ended the afternoon in the circle for Tarango. She finished with 1.1 innings pitched with three runs on four hits and one walk.

Tennessee brought in Gretchen Aucoin to pitch and the Seminoles made changes as well with Lauren Harris pinch-running for Daddis at second and Bella D'Errico running for Schinella at third. Pinch-hitter Victoria East grounded into a RBI fielder's choice to short, retiring Harris at third but it allowed D'Errico to score and make it 5-1 Florida State.

Burroughs and the Seminoles bent but would not break in the fifth inning, as Tennessee got the leadoff hitter, Overstreet, on base with a hit by pitch. She moved to second on a great diving play by Cooper in the 3-4 hole for the first out of the inning. Following a strikeout from Burroughs, the inning continued after a fielding error from Warren that put runners on the corners. Burroughs got out of the jam and ended the inning with her third strikeout of the game.

The Florida State offense continued to produce in the bottom of the fifth as Warren had her third hit of the game on a single to left. She took second on a wild pitch and moved to third base on a groundout by Powers. Cooper later stepped in and hit an RBI single to right to bring in Warren and push the lead out to 6-1 Florida State.

Tennessee managed two runners in the sixth on a double by Tarango and a two-out walk to Tory Lewis. Burroughs ended the inning by getting Overstreet to fly out to right field.

After allowing a leadoff walk in the seventh inning, Burroughs' day in the circle was done for FSU as Schinella came in to pitch. Schinella induced two groundout before surrendering a walk to Aucoin. A pop out to short ended the game and gave the Seminoles the victory.

Burroughs (19-6) tossed 6.0 innings in the win, giving up just one unearned run on four hits with four walks and three strikeouts.

UT's Gabriel took the loss and moved to 17-7 on the season while Aucoin pitched the final 2.2 innings for Tennessee with three hits and one run with no walks and two strikeouts.

TENNESSEE 2, FLORIDA STATE 1
05/22/2015, KNOXVILLE, TN, NCAA Super Regional Championship

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

No. 9 Seminoles End Season At No. 8 Tennessee.
Florida State drops the final game of the NCAA Knoxville Super Regional, 2-1.

KNOXVILLE, TN - Dropping the final game of the NCAA Knoxville Super Regional, No. 9 Florida State (49-14) ended its season with a 2-1 loss at No. 8 Tennessee (47-15) on May 22 at Sherri Parker Lee Stadium. The Seminoles had won game two earlier in the day, 6-1, to force a third game, but could not overcome an early deficit to the Volunteers in the final game of the series.

"An outstanding super regional," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "An amazing, well-fought game on all sides. I'm very proud of our program, it is hard to be down one game and come back in a tough environment against a good athletic squad like Tennessee. Very proud of our team."

Tennessee opened the scoring in the first inning as Lexi Overstreet drew a leadoff walk from FSU starter Lacey Waldrop. A single by Rainey Gaffin and an RBI double by Megan Geer gave Tennessee a 1-0 lead. Waldrop struck out the next two hitters she faced to end the inning.

The Seminoles were able to get two runners on in the second inning on a walk by Alex Powers and a single from Victoria Daddis, but both were left stranded on base after a strikeout from UT starter Gaffin and a line out.

The Volunteers threatened in the second inning, getting runners on via a walk and single with one out, but Waldrop and the Noles were able to leave them on base after a line out to left and a ground out to Cooper at second.

Tennessee added a run in the fourth inning to take a 2-0 lead. Cheyanne Tarango led off with a walk and was pinch-run for by CJ McClain. Taylor Koenig followed with a hit-by-pitch and she was replaced to run by Hannah Devotie. After McClain stole third, she came in to score on a fielder's choice to Ellie Cooper at second when her throw home went wide of the plate.

Waldrop posted a strikeout before loading the bases on a walk to Overstreet. The Seminoles got out of the inning on a fielder's choice to Powers at first where she threw home and a ground out to Cooper.

Florida State cut the lead to 2-1 in the top of the fifth after Victoria East had a pinch-hit single to right to open the inning. She moved up to second on a groundout by Alex Kossoff and took third on a wild pitch from Gaffin. Morgan Klaevemann slapped an RBI infield single to second base to score East and bring in FSU's only run of the game.

Waldrop retired the last seven batters she faced with three strikeouts to keep Florida State in contention.

In the seventh inning, Daddis and pinch-hitter Rylan Harvey each worked a full count but would eventually both post strikeouts. Kossoff slapped a single to continue the inning, but Klaevemann's ground out to second base ended the game.

Gaffin (17-3) tossed her fifth complete game of the season, allowing one run on five hits with two walks and four strikeouts.

Waldrop took the loss and ended with a record of 28-7 on the season, allowing two runs on three hits with four walks and seven strikeouts.

"We're going to grow and miss our three seniors completely," Alameda added. "But they've left a legacy of fire, character, passion and we can keep going down all these amazing lists of words that describe great people. But Lacey, Bailey and Maddie have done amazing things for us."

The Seminoles closed out a season that saw Florida State earn several team and individual awards. Jessica Warren was named ACC Freshman of the Year, Waldrop earned her second-straight ACC Pitcher of the Year honor, while Coach Alameda was named the ACC Coach of the Year for the third straight season. In all, FSU placed six student-athletes on the All-ACC teams, and three players (Waldrop, Warren and Klaevemann) on the NFCA Southeast All-Region Teams.

Florida State won its 13th ACC Championship in 2015 and won the regular season title in the conference for the third straight season. The Seminoles made their third straight appearance in the NCAA Super Regionals, after reaching the World Series in 2014.

The Seminoles finished with a 49-14 record and the 49 wins rank 15th all-time in FSU history and marks the second time since 2004 that the Noles have won at least 49 games in a season. The Seminoles lose only three players to graduation - Maddie O'Brien, Bailey Schinella and Waldrop - and are well positioned to continue their success in the 2016 season.
