Seminoles Place Seven Players On 2016 All-ACC Teams.
No. 6 Florida State places league-record six players on All-ACC First Team, while Alex Powers (Player of the Year), Jessica Burroughs (Pitcher) and Lonni Alameda (Coach) earn individual awards.

March 12, 2016

RALEIGH, NC – After posting a 21-2 record in conference play and earning the ACC regular season championship for the fourth consecutive season, No. 6 Florida State is well represented on the 2016 All-ACC Teams as the Seminoles place a conference-record six student-athletes on the First Team and one on the Second Team, the league announced on Thursday.

The Noles also received three of the four individual conference awards with redshirt junior Alex Powers earning ACC Player of the Year, redshirt junior Jessica Burroughs being named ACC Pitcher of the Year and Lonni Alameda selected as the ACC Coach of the Year. Virginia Tech’s Lauren Duff was chosen to be the ACC Freshman of the Year.

Powers and Burroughs are joined on the All-ACC First Team by junior Ellie Cooper, sophomores Morgan Klaevemann and Jessica Warren and redshirt freshman Meghan King. Freshman Carsyn Gordon was selected to the All-ACC Second Team.

The seven All-ACC selections is the second most for Florida State all-time, trailing the 1995 season when eight Seminoles earned postseason conference recognition. There were only five teams in the conference in 1995, compared to the 11 teams participating in softball in 2016. The six First Team selections also sets a conference record as no ACC school had previously had more than four First Team selections in the same season since the league began naming multiple All-ACC Teams in 2005.

“This has been a great season so far for this team and this program and I’m proud of what they all have achieved and are being recognized for,” said Alameda. “While only a select group have their names listed on these awards, we know that it is a complete team effort, one through twenty-four, that has created our success. The way we push each other on the field, love being around each other off the field and are truly working for the goals of the team has been a lot of fun to watch and be a part of.”

Powers becomes the eighth Seminole to be named ACC Player of the Year, and the first since Maddie O’Brien in 2014. The Melbourne, Fla., native finished the regular season ranked in the top 10 in the league in 10 different categories, including ranking fifth with a .403 batting average, fourth with 55 runs scored and sixth with a .717 slugging percentage. She has added 13 home runs and 54 RBI and was named ACC Player of the Week twice this season.

“It is really an honor to be recognized for this, but it really goes to my teammates, because without them, there wouldn’t be runners on base and we wouldn’t have had all the success we’ve had with the games we’ve won and breaking the school’s scoring record of 401 runs,” said Powers. “It’s just awesome to be a part of and I feel really honored and it means a lot to me.”

“I think that anyone on this team, or anyone who knows Alex’s story, has to be a fan of hers,” said Alameda. “If anyone talks about injury, if you want a success story, follow what she has done. While that doesn’t define her, it gave her an opportunity to find out who she is and what this coaching staff knew she was capable of. She does it with such a passion and a class that you just have to be really proud of everything she’s worked for and is now being able to display through the game of softball.”

Burroughs is the fourth Florida State player, and third in a row, to be named ACC Pitcher of the Year, joining Sarah Hamilton in 2009 and Lacey Waldrop in 2014 and 2015. The Warner Robins, Ga., native finished second in the ACC with 24 wins, a 2.08 ERA and allowed opponents to hit just .173 against her. Burroughs has recorded 200 strikeouts on the year and tossed her second career no-hitter earlier this season against Bradley on February 27.

“This really shows how much of a team effort this season has been,” said Burroughs. “The whole team has put in so much time and really prepared for every moment. The defense has been there to back me up and playing for my best pitch. Learning to trust my pitches and play to my defense has been awesome, and the way our offense has been scoring and putting up so many runs has been huge this season. The success of this team this season hasn’t been on any one person, but the whole group. It’s been amazing.”

“I think that every year you talk about how every pitch in the circle is important for the team,” said Alameda. “And that’s something we try to talk about every day in the bullpen – being selfless. There is a part of you that needs to have an ego and trust that you can go after the hitter, but that you are doing it for the team. Lacey Waldrop was great with that and passed it down to Jessica who has been outstanding for us in that sense. I don’t think I could be more proud of her from her work ethic, beginning after our series at Tennessee to end last season to come in and be a leader in the circle and a leader for this team.”

For the remainder of the All-ACC First Team selections, Cooper batted .388 in the regular season with eight doubles, five triples, four home runs and 45 RBI as the second baseman scored 46 runs and added eight stolen bases. Klaevemann hit .365 on the season and led the conference with 59 runs scored, 41 walks and 43 stolen bases and also added five outfield from her centerfield position.

Warren batted .373 on the season and led the team with 16 home runs, 64 RBI and a .739 slugging percentage. She also finished second in the conference with 58 runs scored and added six stolen bases. King was outstanding in the circle in her first season of collegiate softball, posting a 20-3 record, including complete game victories over No. 20 Minnesota and on the road at No. 3 Auburn. King ended the regular season with a 2.34 ERA and 95 strikeouts and recorded the first perfect game for Florida State since 2004 on March 12 against Tulsa.

Carsyn Gordon saw action in 47 games for the Seminoles both in the outfield and at third base and batted .342 with 10 doubles, four home runs, 33 RBI and 33 runs scored. Three of her four home runs have been grand slams, which places her in a tie for 11th in NCAA single season history.

Coach Alameda earned the ACC Coach of the Year for the fourth consecutive season after leading the Noles to a 21-2 record in conference play and a 45-8 mark overall. Florida State has won at least 20 conference games in three consecutive seasons and is the only school to ever have 20+ ACC wins, including a conference-record 24 ACC victories in 2014.

“It is an honor and we have some amazing coaches in our conference, and we are all trying to push softball to higher levels and represent the ACC well,” said Alameda. “I’m really proud of this team. We talked about being a young squad in the beginning, but due to the leadership of our upperclassmen and their ability to keep the freshmen’s heads above water, it has put us in a great position postseason-wise. As a coaching staff, it’s been awesome to see the light bulbs continue to go off when we see them believe and trust in the process. And this is definitely a coaching staff award and a coaching staff program award. We’re really honored to represent the ACC.”


Powers, Burroughs and Warren Named NFCA All-Americans.
The trio of Seminoles earned All-American accolades from the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.

June 1, 2016

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - As the Florida State softball program prepares for the 2016 Women's College World Series, a trio of Seminoles have been recognized among the best in the country as redshirt juniors Alex Powers and Jessica Burroughs, as well as sophomore Jessica Warren earned NFCA All-American honors, as announced by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association on Wednesday.

Powers was selected to the Second Team as a first baseman, while Burroughs was on the Third Team as a pitcher. Warren was chosen to the Third Team as an at-large honoree. It is the first All-American honor for all three student-athletes and brings FSU's total to 30 different players that have been named an NFCA All-American.

The three NFCA All-Americans for Florida State is the most since 2004 when Jessica van der Linden (First Team), Veronica Wootson (Second Team) and Casey Hunter (Second Team) were recognized by the NFCA. It is the sixth time in Seminole history that FSU earned three All-American selections.

"This has been a really special season and I'm really proud of these girls for being recognized nationally for what they mean to this team and program," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Obviously, they couldn't have any success without the rest of the team and family to hold each other accountable and bring out the best in each of them. They are a great representation of the culture of our softball program and also the university. Very excited for all of them to receive these awards and excited to play some softball with them this week."

Powers was named the 2016 ACC Player of the Year and enters the WCWS with a .383 batting average, 14 home runs and 59 RBI. She ranks in the top 10 of the ACC in numerous categories, including ranking second with 14 doubles and fourth with 59 runs scored. She earned a pair of ACC Player of the Week honors during the season and led the team in ACC play with a .431 batting average and a .819 slugging percentage.

Burroughs has posted an impressive junior campaign with a 27-5 record, 1.93 ERA and 227 strikeouts on her way to being named the 2016 ACC Pitcher of the Year. The Warner Robins, Ga., native recorded two no-hitters this season - vs. Bradley on February 27 and vs. Florida A&M on May 20. She also has 13 other appearances this season where she has allowed either zero or one hit. She has allowed teams to bat just .170 against her on the season with 112 base hits in 184.2 innings pitched.

Warren has been an offensive catalyst for FSU, as her 18 home runs and 74 RBI leads the team and she has also scored 67 runs. The 74 RBI ranks fourth in the country this season and sits second all-time in FSU history, trailing only Maddie O'Brien's total of 83 from the 2014 season. Warren has been a force in the 2016 postseason, as she is batting .500 (6-for-12) with a 1.083 slugging percentage and six runs scored. She hit at least one double in all three games of the NCAA Tallahassee Regional, and hit a two-run home run in FSU's Super Regional clinching win over Utah on May 28.

FLORIDA STATE 5, ST. JOHN'S 2
02/12/2016, FIU Tournament, Miami, Fl

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Florida State Starts 2016 With Two Wins.
No. 10 Seminoles take two on the first day of the Juiceblendz Softball Invitational.

MIAMI, FL – After 266 days since the 2015 season came to close, the Florida State softball team was finally back on the diamond as the 2016 season got underway Friday at the Juiceblendz Softball Invitational hosted by FIU. The No. 10 Seminoles earned a 5-2 victory over St. John’s (0-2) and ended the night with a 7-1 win versus FIU (0-1).

It was great to finally get out and take on some other competition,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “It was a solid first day. There were some learning moments, some spots we need some work, some first game jitters and good execution in situations when we needed them. I’m glad we were able to see a lot of players in a lot of different positions today as we have so many new faces on this team.”

Redshirt freshman Meghan King made her first career start and dominated right from the beginning, tossing a strike on each of her first 11 pitches, including striking out the side in the first inning.

“It was really exciting,” said King, on making her first career start. “I was nervous at the beginning, but trusting in all of the work I put in last season and the support of my teammates made it a lot easier. My adrenaline was pumping at the beginning of the game, but after getting the three strikeouts it settled me down. My teammates excitement behind me was definitely uplifting.”

The Noles got their offense going immediately in their half of the first as Morgan Klaevemann led off the game with a bunt single and stole second on the next pitch. Jessica Warren followed with an RBI single up the middle to make it 1-0 after the first inning.

Klaevemann finished with a career day at the plate, batting 3-for-4 with two stolen bases – matching career-highs in both categories. She also drove in a run and scored twice.

Sydney Broderick and Alex Powers helped give Florida State a 5-0 lead in the sixth inning as Powers knocked an RBI single up the middle to score Klaevemann and Broderick immediately followed with a double to the wall in left center to bring in Powers.

St. John’s ended the shutout in the seventh, starting with a leadoff walk from Krystal Puga. She advanced to second on a passed ball by Macey Cheatham and scored on an RBI double from Brittany Garcia. After a groundout, Garcia came into score on another passed ball for the final score of 5-2.

King (1-0) earned the complete-game win in her first career start and tossed 7.0 innings with four hits, one walk, two unearned runs along with six strikeouts.

In the night cap against FIU, the game remained scoreless until the third inning when Alex Kossoff led off the inning with an infield single on a high chopper to the third baseman. She was replaced on first by a fielder’s choice from Zoe Casas. Klaevemann’s slap back to the circle was thrown wide of second base, allowing both runners to end up on second and third. Warren drove in her third RBI of the season with a sacrifice fly to right.

FIU tied the game in the fourth inning after a pair of singles and an FSU throwing error put Panther runners on the corners with one out. Ashley Belans lifted a sacrifice fly to center to score Gabby Spallone and make it 1-1 after four innings.

The Noles took the lead in the sixth inning after a walk to Broderick and a Powers single put runners on first and third for Cali Harrod. Harrod ground into a fielder’s choice to short, retiring Powers at second, but the throw to first was wild and allowed Broderick to score from third to make it 2-1.

FIU threatened in the sixth, putting the first two runners on with a pair of singles to left. FSU pitcher Jessica Burroughs battled and got the next hitter to pop out on a bunt attempt to Warren at third base. A line out to Victoria East in right started an inning ending double play as the runner at second failed to tag on the play.

Burroughs (1-0) pitched effectively on Friday night, earning the complete game win after scattering eight hits, one unearned run with one walk and eight strikeouts.

The Noles tacked on five insurance runs in the seventh inning as the Noles brought nine batters to the plate in the frame. Kossoff got things started with her second infield single of the game, followed by a walk by Korina Rosario. Klaevemann brought both of them in with a triple to left center. Broderick and Ellie Cooper added RBIs and Powers later scored from third when Harrod swiped second and the FIU throw was wide of the base.

“It was a great day,” said Klaevemann. “We definitely learned a lot, learned what we can work on and built confidence with the stuff that we have. We proved that we can score 4-5 runs in an inning and it shows that even though we are young, we can make the adjustments and get on it.”

Seminoles Split On Day 2 Of Juiceblendz Softball Invitational.
No. 10 Florida State defeated LIU Brooklynn, 12-0 (5), before falling 5-1 to Illinois.

MIAMI, FL – The Seminoles continued the Juiceblendz Softball Invitational on Saturday with a pair of games at Felsberg Field on the campus of FIU. No. 10 Florida State (3-1) earned a split on the day, defeating LIU Brooklyn (3-1), 12-0 in five innings, in the morning and falling to Illinois (2-1), 5-1, in the afternoon.

“We came out aggressive against LIU this morning, but struggled a bit at the plate against Illinois,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We’re a young team and will have a lot of learning moments like this throughout the season. Illinois was an aggressive team take took advantage of the opportunities we gave them.”

The Noles scored all the runs they would need against LIU in the first inning as FSU scored nine runs as 13 batters came to the plate in the inning. A trio of singles from Morgan Klaevemann, Jessica Warren and Ellie Cooper loaded the bases and Alex Powers brought in the first run on a sacrifice fly. Walks to Cali Harrod and Alex Kossoff, along with Victoria Daddis getting hit by a pitch made it 3-0.

FSU then added runs in chunks with two-RBI singles from Zoe Casas and Warren, as well as a two-run double by Cooper.

Meghan King (2-0) earned the win in the circle in the shortened game, tossing 3.0 shutout innings with three hits, zero walks and two strikeouts.

Florida State added to its lead in the fourth inning, plating three runs on a bases loaded walk by Tessa Daniels and another two-RBI single from Casas. Freshman Jasmine Palmer and Powers added singles in the inning.

Daniels also pitched the final two innings in the circle, allowing three hits with two strikes to close out the shutout.

The Seminoles and Illini faced each other immediately after and FSU got into an early hole as starter Jessica Burroughs allowed a leadoff double to Carly Thomas. She came around to score after a sacrifice bunt and an RBI single to third base.

Illinois added to their lead in the fourth inning on a three-run home run by Nicole Tobon to score Annie Fleming and Stephanie Abello, who had reached on a single and double, respectively.

Jade Vecvanags pitched well for Illinois, keeping FSU off the board until the sixth inning. Cooper walked on four pitches to start the inning and moved up to second on a stolen base. After a groundout moved her to third, Cooper came in to score on an infield RBI single from Kossoff. Vecvanags (1-1) pitched 7.0 innings, allowing five hits, one run with three walks and four strikeouts.

King pitched the final 2.0 innings for the Noles, allowing one run on two hits with a walk. Burroughs took the loss and moved to 1-1 on the season after 4.0 innings of work, giving up six hits, four runs, zero walks and totaling three strikeouts.

No. 10 Noles Take Down Valparaiso.
Florida State caps off the weekend with a 16-5 victory in six innings over the Crusaders.

MIAMI, FL – Closing out the season-opening weekend at the Juiceblendz Softball Invitational, No. 10 Florida State (4-1) defeated Valparaiso (0-4) by a score of 16-5, in six innings, on Sunday at Felsberg Field on the campus of FIU.

“This was a nice way to wrap up the weekend,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We have a lot of positives to take away from these games. We’re seeing a lot of people in different hitting situations so we can know what we have off the bench. Also, we got Meghan and Tessa’s feet wet in pitching their first games and working through some tough spots. Overall, it was a good tournament, and now we get to head home and go to work to prepare for Stephen F. Austin and Michigan and Minnesota this weekend.”

The Seminole offense opened the game with a big inning in the first, bringing in six runs to start the ballgame. As she has for all five games this season, Morgan Klaevemann reached base leading off the FSU first inning, this time on a bunt single, ending up on third after a throwing error and scoring on a passed ball. A pair of two-RBI singles from Ellie Cooper and Alex Kossoff, along with a RBI double by Alex Powers drove in the Seminole runs as Cali Harrod and Sydney Broderick added walks in the inning.

Klaevemann led off the second inning with a walk, stole second and came into score on an RBI single from Jessica Warren.

FSU broke out for four runs in the third inning as Harrod and Cooper each walked and stole second to start the inning. Mirroring her at bat in the first inning, Kossoff drove a single through the right side to plate two runs, giving her a career-high four RBI for the game. RBI singles from Warren and Broderick closed out the scoring in the frame to give FSU an 11-0 lead.

Jessica Burroughs was excellent in the circle for the Noles, allowing just two baserunner on a walk in her 3.0 innings of work along with five strikeouts. Meghan King came in and pitched the fourth inning and faced five batters, allowing a run on one hit with a walk and two strikeouts.

Tessa Daniels came in to pitch in the fifth inning and retired the first two batters she faced on ground outs. After a walk and a throwing error put two runners on base, a home run from Kaitlyn Ranieri cut the FSU lead to 11-4 after five innings.

In the sixth, Powers started off the inning with a walk and stole second for her first career stolen base. A single to left by Harrod enabled a first-and-third situation that resulted in Powers scoring on the play and Harrod ending up on third base. An RBI single by Zoe Casas and an RBI double by Daniels made it 14-4 Florida State with one out in the inning.

Korina Rosario singled to center and three consecutive walks to Victoria East, Mia Lacy and Macey Cheatham plated two more runs to give the Noles a 16-4 advantage.

The Crusaders battled until the very end, scoring a run in the sixth with a pair of singles and a pair of Seminole errors, but were defeated in the end, 16-5.

Daniels finished with 2.0 innings pitched and allowed four unearned runs on three hits with a walk and a strikeout. In total, 16 different Seminoles made a plate appearance, 11 recorded a base hit and nine posted at least one RBI. Klaevemann and Harrod scored a team-high three runs each.

Seminoles Shutout Stephen F. Austin.
No. 13 Florida State earns an 11-0 five-inning victory over the Lumberjacks on Wednesday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Playing for the first time in 2016 in front of its home fans, No. 13 Florida State (5-1) earned an 11-0 victory in five innings over Stephen F. Austin (3-2) on Wednesday night on JoAnne Graf Field. FSU pitchers Jessica Burroughs, Meghan King and Abby Evans combined to toss a one-hitter and allowed only three baserunners for the entire game.

"It is different playing in your own park, but the kids came out and played well," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "They came out ready to go. JB threw well and set the tone. Other than that little snafu with the error, everyone took care of what they needed to do, which was good to see and really good for what's coming up this weekend."

Stephen F. Austin's leadoff batter, Alisa Hamilton, reached on an FSU throwing error, but she would be the lone SFA baserunner until the final inning as Seminole starter Burroughs struck out the next three batters. She also struck out the side in the second and took the win and moved to 3-1 with a final line of 3.0 innings pitched without allowing a hit or walk and seven strikeouts after facing just 10 batters.

King took to the circle and faced seven hitters in 1.2 innings, giving up the lone Lumberjack hit in the top of the fifth. The redshirt freshman recorded four strikeouts in the five outs that she pitched. Evans made her first career appearance for FSU and faced the final SFA hitter in the fifth inning, inducing a ground ball to third to end the game.

The Seminoles used a 10-run inning in the second to explode out to an early lead. Alex Kossoff continued her hot start at the plate in 2016, registering two hits in the frame, scoring twice and driving in two runs. The senior outfielder leads the team with eight RBI this season.

Also in the second, Sydney Broderick laced an two-RBI double to the wall in center and Alex Powers followed with an RBI double to left. Morgan Klaevemann added a walk and an RBI single in the frame. FSU was aided by four Lumberjack errors in the inning as all 10 runs were unearned to Makayla Sikes, who moved to 0-2 on the year.

FSU plated another run in the fourth after Cali Harrod led off with a walk and moved to second on a single to left by Ellie Cooper. A groundout by Zoe Casas moved the runners into scoring position and a wild pitch from Sikes allowed Harrod to score to mark the final score of 11-0.

MICHIGAN 6, FLORIDA STATE 2
02/19/2016, TALLAHASSEE, FL, B1G/ACC Challenge

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Florida State Falls to Michigan.
A three-run seventh helps No. 2 Michigan to a 6-2 victory over the No. 13 Seminoles.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In a battle of top-15 teams, No. 2 Michigan (5-1) used a three-run seventh inning to outlast No. 13 Florida State (5-2) on Friday night and take a 6-2 victory on the first day of the 2016 ACC/Big Ten Softball Challenge. The Seminoles had numerous offensive chances throughout the game, but couldn't push across the runs when they needed to, leaving 11 runners on base.

"It was a great ballgame, but the score doesn't really reflect how close it was as we were right there up until the sixth inning," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "As a young squad, it was good experience to get a lot of people in situations to get better for later down the line. Now it is the chess match of coming out here tomorrow a little better than we were today. If we execute on a few pitches and get a few swings off in certain situations, this is a different ballgame.

"We're very pleased with the attitude we had from the first pitch to the last pitch, everyone was in it. We know how we measure up against a top-five team and now we have to go to work."

Michigan opened the scoring with a pair of runs in the top of the first. After FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs retired the first two batters of the inning, Michigan put together three consecutive hits on singles by Kelly Christner and Tera Blanco, along with an RBI double by Kelsey Susalla, to take a 1-0 lead. A wild pitch from Burroughs brought in the second Wolverine run to give U-M a 2-0 lead.

Florida State struck back in the bottom of the frame as the first four batters reached base, including walks to Morgan Klaevemann and Alex Powers, a hit by pitch to Jessica Warren and an RBI single by Sydney Broderick. FSU was unable to bring in any additional runs and left the bases loaded and trailed 2-1 after the first inning.

The score remained 2-1 until the sixth inning when a leadoff double by Michigan and a hit by pitch ended Burroughs' night in the circle. Meghan King replaced Burroughs and gave up an RBI double to Aidan Falk to make it 3-1 before settling in and retiring the next three batters.

Burroughs (3-2) took the loss after 5.0 innings of work, allowing seven hits, three runs with zero walks and eight strikeouts. Three of those strikeouts were against Sierra Romero, who only recorded eight strikeouts in the entire 2015 season and had zero strikeouts in 2016.

The Noles had many opportunities against Michigan pitchers Megan Betsa and Sara Driesenga, but they couldn't find the hits needed to drive in runs. In all, FSU left 11 people on base, including four on third base. Conversely, Michigan had clutch hitting throughout the night as eight of its 11 hits came with two strikes in the count, including the first five Wolverine base hits of the game.

Driesenga (3-0) earned the win for Michigan, tossing 3.1 innings of relief, allowing just one run on two hits with one walk and four strikeouts. Betsa worked 3.2 innings in the start and gave up three hits, a run and six walks, along with seven strikeouts before being replaced in the fourth inning.

FSU nearly tied it in the bottom of the sixth after a two-out RBI by Warren cut the lead to 3-2 and put runners on second and third, but a groundout to the pitcher ended the inning.

Michigan plated three in the top of the seventh to put the game away, including a two-run home run by Romero. King finished with 1.0 IP and gave up two hits, two runs, one earned while Tessa Daniels pitched the final inning for Florida State and surrendered two hits, one run along with a walk.

Seminoles Walk-Off Minnesota And Drop To Michigan.
No. 13 Florida State earned a 5-4 victory over No. 20 Minnesota and were defeated 10-3 by No. 2 Michigan on Saturday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Facing the two best teams in the Big Ten on Saturday, No. 13 Florida State (6-3) lost to No. 2 Michigan (7-1), 10-3, before earning a 5-4, walk-off victory over No. 20 Minnesota (5-3) on a solo home run by Victoria East to wrap up the second day of the 2016 ACC/Big Ten Challenge in Tallahassee.

"I think this entire weekend will be a growing opportunity for us," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We're a young team and trying to figure ourselves out, so it is awesome to be in these games and obviously awesome to win them. But I think it is more of the challenges and the chess match and the trusting your pitches and your swings that will show up huge for us down the road."

Against Michigan, the Wolverines scored the first run of the game in the bottom of the first inning on a bases loaded Seminole fielding error with two outs.

FSU had its chances early on, getting multiple runners on base in each of the first three innings, including singles by Zoe Casas and Korina Rosario, but much like during Friday night's game, the Seminoles stranded them on base.

Michigan used a big five-run third inning to break the game open. The first run of the inning was driven in on a single from Abby Ramirez that bounced off the second base bag and away from Klaevemann in center, while the second run was deflected by FSU starter Meghan King on a ball back up the middle and away from Ellie Cooper at second base. Sierra Lawernce left no doubt for the final runs in the inning as she hit a three-run home run to left field to make it 6-0 Michigan after three innings.

Another Michigan home run from Kelsey Susalla pushed the lead to 7-0 going to the top of the fifth. Florida State started the inning with a single up the middle from Jessica Warren and Alex Powers put the Noles on the board with her first home run of the season to make it 7-2.

The inning continued with a single from Alex Kossoff to chase Michigan starter Sara Driesenga from the game. Megan Betsa enters and offered up an RBI double off the wall by Zoe Casas to cut the lead to 7-3.

Michigan answered right back with three runs in the bottom of the fifth with a solo home run, an FSU fielding error and an RBI single from Tera Blanco. Morgan Klaevemann held off the run-rule attempt from Michigan in the fifth, gunning down Kelly Christner at the plate on Blanco's single to center to hold Michigan's advantage to 10-3.

Tessa Daniels pitched the final inning in relief for the Noles, retiring all three batters she faced on a trio of nice defensive plays - two from Cooper at second and another from Warren at third. Meghan King (2-1) took the loss after 5.0 innings of work, giving up 10 runs, seven earned on nine hits with four walks and zero strikeouts.

Driesenga moved to 4-0 with the win for Michigan, tossing 4.2 innings and giving up five hits, three runs with three walks and five strikeouts. Betsa recorded five strikeouts in 2.1 innings and allowed just one hit and zero runs or walks.

Versus the Golden Gophers of Minnesota, the Seminoles took a quick 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first on a two-RBI single from Cooper to score Warren and Powers who had reached on a walk and infield single, respectively.

Minnesota cut the lead to 2-1 in the third inning on a solo home run from Sam Macken down the left field line off of FSU starter Jessica Burroughs.

FSU answered right back in the bottom of the frame with a sacrifice fly to centerfield from Powers to score Klaevemann from third and give the Noles a 3-1 lead after three.

Minnesota nearly tied the game in the fourth, but an amazing defensive play by Klaevemann in center ended the inning with a double play. After a walk to Maddie Houlihan, Kayla Wenner launched a long fly ball to straightaway center and Klaevemann tracked the ball down and caught it as she crashed into the wall. She flipped the ball to right fielder Victoria East as she was falling to the ground, who threw it in to double off Houlihan at first who was running on the play.

The Gophers again made it a one-run game in the sixth with a sacrifice fly from Paige Palkovich. FSU added a sac fly of their own in the bottom half by Zoe Casas to score Powers who led off the inning with a double and make it 4-2 after six innings.

Minnesota fought for two runs in the top of the seventh to tie the game as the first two batters of the inning reached on a single and a walk. A single from Macken made it 4-3, while a wild pitch from Burroughs on an intentional walk attempt tied the game at 4-4.

The Seminoles wasted no time in securing the victory in the bottom of the inning as leadoff hitter East launched a 1-1 pitch from Minnesota pitcher Nikki Anderson over the wall in centerfield for a walk-off home run.

Burroughs (4-2) finished with 7.0 IP, six hits, four runs, four walks and a season-high 10 strikeouts. UM's Anderson (0-1) took the loss with 6.0 innings pitched, nine hits, five runs, one walk and zero strikeouts.

Meghan King Tosses Complete-Game Shutout of No. 20 Minnesota.
Freshman Zoe Casas hit two doubles with two RBI to give No. 13 Florida State a 2-0 victory over No. 20 Minnesota on Sunday afternoon.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Closing out the 2016 ACC/Big Ten Softball Challenge, No. 13 Florida State (7-3) scored twice in the top of the seventh to take a 2-0 victory over No. 20 Minnesota (5-4) on Sunday afternoon on JoAnne Graf Field. Seminole redshirt freshman pitcher Meghan King tossed a complete-game shutout and freshman Zoe Casas went 2-for-3 from the plate with two doubles, including the two-RBI game-winner in the seventh inning.

"Something that is very important to our program is being smart and making adjustments," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "If we are going to play the same team in a three-game series, or two-game series, by game two we should learn something and make adjustments from there. I thought Meghan stuck to the game plan very well today and the hitters from first pitch on stuck to the plan for Groenewegen and didn't falter from it. And that's huge to see, especially with a young team. We're really excited about that."

It was a pitching duel from the beginning between Minnesota's junior starter Sara Groenewegen and FSU's King. Neither team was able to get a runner to third base until the fifth inning as Groenewegen pitched around a double by Casas in the second, and King scattered four hits through the first four innings, including a double from UofM's Groenewegen.

Minnesota nearly scored in the fifth as Sydney Dwyer singled and was pinch ran for by Dani Wagner. Wagner promptly stole second and after Sydney Fabian singled up the middle, Wagner rounded third and headed for the plate. Morgan Klaevemann fielded the ball in center and fired a strike to Broderick at the plate to retire Wagner and preserve the scoreless tie. It marked the ninth career outfield assist, and third of 2016, for the sophomore centerfielder.

Groenewegen kept the Seminole bats at bay until the top of the seventh inning when Jessica Warren led off with a walk and she was pinch run for by Bella D'Errico. Ellie Cooper added a single to put runners on first and second for Casas. For the second time in the game, Casas blasted a double off the wall in left center, this time scoring two run to give the Noles a 2-0 lead.

"I was just thinking, 'Zoe, keep swinging it. Keep swinging it," said Casas. "I kept swinging and missing and knew I had to get it for the team. Once I did, I couldn't be more thrilled."

King (3-1) retired the side in the seventh to finish an impressive outing in the circle. She gave up six hits, zero walks and recorded six strikeouts in the complete-game shutout of 20th-ranked Minnesota.

"It definitely felt really good, coming off of yesterday and I knew I had a lot to work on," said King. "But with the team's intensity up every single pitch, it was nice to know they had my back and I knew that they would eventually score."

Groenewegen (4-2) took the loss after 7.0 innings of work, allowing two runs on four hits with two walks and five strikeouts.

Florida State Powers To A Victory Over Florida A&M.
A pair of home runs in the first inning, including a grand slam from freshman Carsyn Gordon, paced the Seminoles in a 10-1 win versus Florida A&M.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - A couple swings of the bat gave No. 13 Florida State (8-3) an early lead in the first inning on its way to a 10-1 victory over Florida A&M (5-6) on Wednesday night at JoAnne Graf Field. Redshirt freshman Alex Powers hit a three-run home run and freshman Carsyn Gordon added a grand slam in the seven-run first inning for FSU.

"I completely enjoy our friendly rivalry," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Coach Wiggins is amazing and has done an amazing job with that program over the years. We really enjoy this softball rivalry we have, and we have great softball here in town with TCC and FAMU. We appreciate going back and forth, playing at their place and our place."

FSU's explosive first inning started with walks to Morgan Klaevemann and Jessica Warren. The first ball in play for the Noles came off the bat of Powers and she crushed a home run off the top of the trees behind the wall down the right field line to give FSU a 3-0 lead.

After a pair of Seminole outs, Ellie Cooper continued the inning with a walk, followed by an infield single by Cali Harrod. Alex Kossoff bunted her way on to load the bases for Gordon, who hit a 2-2 pitch over the wall in right for a grand slam, extending FSU's lead to 7-0. The home run was Gordon's first hit of her career and it marked the first time a Seminole had a home run for their first collegiate hit since Lauren Harris on February 22, 2014 against UC Santa Barbara.

FSU added three more runs in the second inning after a single by Warren and walks by Sydney Broderick and Zoe Casas loaded the bases. Warren came in to score on a wild pitch from FAMU pitcher Kenya Pereira, while the final two runs were scored as Broderick started a rundown on a fielder's choice by Cooper and an errant throw by FAMU went into left field, giving the Noles a 10-0 lead.

Each member of the starting lineup for Florida State scored a run on Wednesday night and Warren was the only one to score multiple runs in the game.

FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs excelled in the circle, with only a slight blemish to the game's first batter. Burroughs allowed a leadoff triple to FAMU's Jessica Nathan, but left her stranded there after a ground out and two strikeouts. Burroughs retired the next six batters she faced, including striking out the side in the third inning to end her evening. Burroughs faced just 10 batters in 3.0 shutout innings, giving up one hit, no walks and recording six strikeouts.

It is the second time this season Burroughs has faced only 10 batters in a 3.0 inning performance with at least six strikeouts, as she recorded seven punchouts vs. Stephen F. Austin on February 17.

Florida A&M drove in a run in the fourth inning off FSU reliever Meghan King. A pair of singles from Alexis Day and Amber Fullwood put the first two batters on base, but a double play by Powers and Harrod slowed down the threat. Kieifi Myrick lined a single into left to score Day and make it 10-1 FSU.

King settled in and retired the next three batters she faced and ended with 1.2 innings pitched, three hits, one run with no walks or strikeouts. Freshman Abby Evans came in to close out the game and walked a batter and earned a strikeout to end the game.

FSU Offense Carries Noles To Two Wins On Friday.

The Seminoles recorded 22 runs in a pair of five-inning victories on day one of the Unconquered Invitational.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Seminole bats were on display Friday night at JoAnne Graf Field as No. 13 Florida State (10-3) powered its way to wins over Hofstra (7-5) and Bradley (4-8) on the first day of the Unconquered Invitational. The Noles defeated the Pride, 8-0, in the first game and took down the Braves, 14-0, in the second game as both contests ended in the fifth inning due to the run rule.

"I think we're getting progressively better every time we go out," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Like we've said, we're a young team, so we're still figuring ourselves out. Coach Snider and Coach Wilson have been working hard on each kid's mentality, and that's starting to show up. Confidence comes with that and it is awesome to see."

FSU got out to an early start against Hofstra as Morgan Klaevemann walked to open the Seminole first inning. Alex Powers gave the Noles a quick 1-0 lead with a double off the wall in left field.

The Noles exploded for six runs in the fourth inning to break the game open. A single from Klaevemann and a walk from Zoe Casas set the stage for Powers to hit her third home run of the season - a three-run shot to centerfield. Jessica Warren followed with a solo shot on the first pitch of her at-bat that ricocheted off the right field foul pole. It was the first time the Noles have hit back-to-back home runs since Powers and Victoria Daddis went deep against Auburn on March 25, 2015.

The extra-base parade continued as Sydney Broderick doubled off the wall in left. Ellie Cooper added the first home run of her career in the next at bat, crushing a ball over the wall in center to give the Noles a 7-0 lead.

FSU closed out the game in the fifth on back-to-back doubles from Klaevemann and Daddis to give the Noles an 8-0 victory in five innings. In all, seven of the 11 hits for Florida State went for extra bases versus Hofstra.

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs (6-2) nearly pitched a perfect game in the circle, allowing just one runner to reach base for the entire game on a two-out single in the first. She retired the final 13 batters she faced and finished with 5.0 innings pitched, eight strikeouts and zero walks.

In the final game of the night against Bradley, FSU again used a big inning at the plate to put the game out of reach, scoring seven runs in the bottom of the first inning. Klaevemann got things started with an infield single and after stealing second, came into score on an RBI single from Powers. A walk to Warren set the table for Broderick who roped a two-RBI double down the left field line to make it 3-0.

A Bradley error and a walk to Alex Kossoff loaded the bases for Carsyn Gordon, who promptly unloaded them with a bases-clearing double to right center to extend the lead to 6-0. Cali Harrod doubled off the wall in center to close out the scoring in the opening frame as FSU posted a 7-0 advantage.

The Noles plated three in the second inning on an RBI double from Warren, RBI single from Broderick and a sacrifice fly from Victoria East. Cooper and Powers also added singles in the inning.

A four-run third inning highlighted the depth of the Seminole lineup, as reserve players Macey Cheatham and Jasmine Palmer came up huge to push the lead to 14-0. Cheatham came to the plate with runners on second and third and lined a two-RBI single to center, setting a single-game career high in runs batted in for the senior catcher. Palmer stepped in to the box after Cheatham and the freshman launched the first home run of her career into the bushes beyond the wall in left field.

In the circle for the Noles, Meghan King and Tessa Daniels combined to shut down the Bradley offense. Much like in the earlier game against Hofstra, the first inning would be the only frame that FSU's opponent would have a batter reach base.

After allowing the first two batters to get on with singles, King settled in and retired the next two hitters with a groundout and a strikeout. A walk to Bradley's Rachel Huggins loaded the bases, but Powers fielded a grounder to first to end the inning and the threat.

That was the last time a Bradley player reached base in the game as King sent down the next 10 batters she faced until the fifth inning when she was replaced by Daniels. King (4-1) finished with 4.1 innings pitched and gave up two hits, one walk and recorded four strikeouts in the combined shutout, throwing just 57 pitches on the night. Daniels closed out the game with two flyouts to give the Noles the 14-0 run-rule victory.

FSU Offense Carries Noles To Two Wins On Friday.

The Seminoles recorded 22 runs in a pair of five-inning victories on day one of the Unconquered Invitational.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Seminole bats were on display Friday night at JoAnne Graf Field as No. 13 Florida State (10-3) powered its way to wins over Hofstra (7-5) and Bradley (4-8) on the first day of the Unconquered Invitational. The Noles defeated the Pride, 8-0, in the first game and took down the Braves, 14-0, in the second game as both contests ended in the fifth inning due to the run rule.

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs (6-2) nearly pitched a perfect game in the circle, allowing just one runner to reach base for the entire game on a two-out single in the first. She retired the final 13 batters she faced and finished with 5.0 innings pitched, eight strikeouts and zero walks.

In the final game of the night against Bradley, FSU again used a big inning at the plate to put the game out of reach, scoring seven runs in the bottom of the first inning. Klaevemann got things started with an infield single and after stealing second, came into score on an RBI single from Powers. A walk to Warren set the table for Broderick who roped a two-RBI double down the left field line to make it 3-0.

A Bradley error and a walk to Alex Kossoff loaded the bases for Carsyn Gordon, who promptly unloaded them with a bases-clearing double to right center to extend the lead to 6-0. Cali Harrod doubled off the wall in center to close out the scoring in the opening frame as FSU posted a 7-0 advantage.

The Noles plated three in the second inning on an RBI double from Warren, RBI single from Broderick and a sacrifice fly from Victoria East. Cooper and Powers also added singles in the inning.

A four-run third inning highlighted the depth of the Seminole lineup, as reserve players Macey Cheatham and Jasmine Palmer came up huge to push the lead to 14-0. Cheatham came to the plate with runners on second and third and lined a two-RBI single to center, setting a single-game career high in runs batted in for the senior catcher. Palmer stepped in to the box after Cheatham and the freshman launched the first home run of her career into the bushes beyond the wall in left field.

In the circle for the Noles, Meghan King and Tessa Daniels combined to shut down the Bradley offense. Much like in the earlier game against Hofstra, the first inning would be the only frame that FSU's opponent would have a batter reach base.

After allowing the first two batters to get on with singles, King settled in and retired the next two hitters with a groundout and a strikeout. A walk to Bradley's Rachel Huggins loaded the bases, but Powers fielded a grounder to first to end the inning and the threat.

That was the last time a Bradley player reached base in the game as King sent down the next 10 batters she faced until the fifth inning when she was replaced by Daniels. King (4-1) finished with 4.1 innings pitched and gave up two hits, one walk and recorded four strikeouts in the combined shutout, throwing just 57 pitches on the night. Daniels closed out the game with two flyouts to give the Noles the 14-0 run-rule victory.

Burroughs and Powers Shine In Wins Over UAB And Bradley.
Jessica Burroughs tosses a no-hitter against Bradley while Alex Powers hits a home run and two doubles in a pair of victories on Saturday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - For the second consecutive day, No. 13 Florida State (12-3) recorded two five-inning, run-rule shutout victories in the 2016 Unconquered Invitational. The Seminoles defeated UAB (4-10) by a score of 10-0 in the first game of the day and ended with a 9-0 win versus Bradley (4-10). Redshirt junior pitcher Jessica Burroughs earned her second career no-hitter against Bradley, while redshirt junior Alex Powers recorded a home run and two doubles on the afternoon as the Seminole offense tallied nine extra-base hits on the day.

Since Sunday, February 21, the Florida State offense and defense have posted impressive performances in all areas of the game. At the plate, the Noles have scored at least one run in 17 of its last 23 innings, including 13 innings with at least two runs scored and eight with three or more.

In the circle, the Seminole pitching staff has hindered the opposition, surrendering just 20 hits and one run in the last 32.0 innings. FSU pitchers have combined for 34 strikeouts and just two walks during that span.

"Impressive day all around," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "The team has been working so hard throughout the fall and in the spring and it is great to see so many of them trust the process and the plan, which has translated into success at the plate and in the circle. JB and Meghan pitched another great pair of games for us today and the defense behind them helped them trust their pitches.

"It is a lot of fun to see the entire team fight top to bottom. It doesn't matter if they were in the starting lineup or coming off the bench, when their number was called they contributed and that will be huge for us later in the season."

The Noles got started against UAB with a pair of runs in the first inning on an RBI double from Zoe Casas and a sacrifice fly by Jessica Warren.

FSU continued the offensive display in the second inning as a UAB error, single from Carsyn Gordon and walk by Morgan Klaevemann loaded the bases with one out. A pair of hit-by-pitches to Casas and Warren extended the FSU lead to 4-0. Sydney Broderick laced a two-RBI single up the middle, followed by an RBI single from Ellie Cooper to make it 7-0 Noles after two innings.

Powers led off the Seminole fourth inning with a home run to right field and Victoria East hit a two-run pinch-hit home run to close out the scoring.

Meghan King (5-1) scattered one hit in each of the five innings she pitched and earned the win after 4.1 shutout innings with zero walks and five strikeouts. Abby Evans entered to close out the game and issued a single to the first two batters she faced to load the bases with one out. FSU Lauren Harris helped seal the game with a great defensive play in left, tracking down a long fly ball in the left field corner and firing to second to complete the game-ending double play.

Burroughs (7-2) stole the show in the second game against Bradley, recording her second career no-hitter in the circle, tossing 5.0 shutout innings with zero walks and four strikeouts. The redshirt junior avoided the opponents' bats, but couldn't avoid the opponents themselves as the only three baserunners that Bradley earned for the game was on a trio of hit-by-pitches.

At the plate the Seminole offense again proved to be steady and consistent, scoring in all five innings against the Bradley Braves. Much like the game against UAB earlier in the day, Klaevemann reaching base in the first was immediately followed by a Casas RBI extra-base hit, this time a triple to right center. Also like the first game, a sac fly from Warren in the first gave the Noles a 2-0 lead after the first frame.

An RBI single from Powers in the second and a pinch-hit RBI single from East in the third gave FSU a 4-0 advantage through three innings.

Powers led off the fourth inning with a double down the left field line and she eventually came around to score on an RBI fielder's choice by Broderick. A Cooper hit-by-pitch and a single from East set the table for a two-RBI double by Gordon to make it 7-0 Seminoles.

For the second consecutive inning, Powers led off with a double in the fifth, this time to the wall in centerfield. Warren ended the game with her second home run of the season, a two-run shot to deep center for a 9-0 Seminole victory.

FSU Wins Unconquered Invitational Over UAB.
Carsyn Gordon leads FSU with six RBI as another run-rule shutout victory gives the No. 13 Seminoles a 10-0 win over UAB on Sunday afternoon.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - For the sixth time in a row, No. 13 Florida State (13-3) needed only five innings to dispatch its opponent, taking down UAB (5-11) by a score of 10-0 to win the 2016 Unconquered Invitational. Carsyn Gordon led the Seminole offense, batting 2-for-2 with a grand slam and six RBI, while Jessica Burroughs, Meghan King and Tessa Daniels combined to toss a one-hitter versus the Blazers.

"Completely excited about the shutouts and the way we are swinging the bats," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "This team is starting to figure itself out and the chemistry that is going on in the dugout and on the field is great to see. The returners know what they are capable of and are doing a great job of bringing the younger ones through the process. It is an exciting and unifying feeling within the team right now."

Morgan Klaevemann got the game started with a perfect bunt single to lead off the first. It is the 13th time in the 16 FSU games played this season that Klaevemann has safely reached base as the leadoff hitter in the first inning. The sophomore outfielder promptly stole second base and moved up to third as the UAB throw was wide of the bag.

Alex Powers continued her sensational week at the plate as, after a Zoe Casas walk, the redshirt junior first baseman lined an RBI single to center to give the Noles a 1-0 lead. It marked the 11th RBI of the week for Powers as she finished the six-game stretch batting .647 (11-for-17) with three doubles, three home runs, seven runs scored and a slugging percentage of 1.353.

The Noles continued to score in the opening frame as walks to Ellie Cooper and Victoria East pushed the score to 2-0, bringing up Carsyn Gordon with the bases loaded. For the second time this week, the freshman from Palmetto Bay, Fla., launched a grand slam over the wall in left field, extending FSU's lead to 6-0 after the first inning. Gordon had hit a grand slam against Florida A&M on February 24 for the first collegiate hit of her career.

The Seminoles scored in the first inning for the sixth consecutive game and in three of those games the Noles plated at least six runs in their opening trip to the plate.

A four-run third put the game out of reach for UAB as Sydney Broderick opened the inning with a double, followed by walks to Cooper and East to load the bases again for Gordon. While it didn't leave the stadium, Gordon ripped a two-RBI single to left and advanced all the way to third as the throw from UAB left fielder JoJo Fallen got away from the catcher at home plate. Gordon came in to score on an illegal pitch from UAB pitcher Tori Perkins for the final score of 10-0.

Jessica Burroughs had another outstanding start in the circle for Florida State, earning the win to move to 8-2 on the season with 3.0 shutout innings, allowing one hit, one walk and recording five strikeouts. The base hit allowed by Burroughs in the top of the third snapped a streak of 12.0 consecutive innings without a base hit for the redshirt junior pitcher.

Meghan King pitched 1.1 innings of nearly perfect softball, retiring four of the five batters she faced without allowing a walk or a base hit. Tessa Daniels made the fifth appearance of her career and tossed three total pitches to the final two batters of the game to secure the 10-0 victory in five innings.

The Seminoles have not given up a run in their last 26.1 innings of competition and have surrendered just one total run in the last 37.2 innings, dating back to the seventh inning against No. 20 Minnesota on February 20.

FLORIDA STATE 3, UCLA 0
03/04/2016, LOS ANGELES, CA, Stacy Winsberg Tournament

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Seminoles Shutout No. 13 UCLA.
No. 12 Florida State gets a 3-0 road win at UCLA on Friday night behind a combined one-hitter by pitchers Jessica Burroughs and Meghan King.

LOS ANGELES, CA - For the sixth game in a row, No. 12 Florida State (14-3) recorded a shutout, this time on the road at No. 13 UCLA (9-8), earning a 3-0 victory on Friday night at Easton Stadium. Pitchers Jessica Burroughs and Meghan King combined to toss a one-hitter against the Bruins.

"Tonight was fun to see the team execute in situations and battle until the final out," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "UCLA is a great program and we knew coming out here wasn't going to be easy, especially after changing this game from Sunday to today. But everyone contributed tonight - JB tossed a great game, we executed situations well to drive in runs and players came off the bench and made a big impact. Great way to start this road trip and we look forward to getting after it tomorrow."

Florida State struck first with an unearned run in the second inning. Sydney Broderick got on base due to a catcher's interference, and back-to-back singles by Carsyn Gordon and Ellie Cooper loaded the bases. Cali Harrod hit a ground ball to UCLA 3B Mysha Sataraka, who misplayed the ball and allowed Broderick to score to give the Seminoles a 1-0 lead.

A great display of situational hitting brought in another Seminole run in the fourth inning as Gordon reached on an infield single to short and ended up on second as the throw was wild to first. Cooper placed a perfect sacrifice bunt to the pitcher to move Gordon to third and Victoria East hit a pinch-hit RBI single up the middle to drive in a run.

The Seminoles added another run in the seventh on an RBI single by Broderick to score Alex Powers from second who had reached earlier in the inning on a four-pitch walk.

Burroughs pitched a gem for the Seminoles allowing only one baserunner over the first 6.0 innings on a leadoff walk in the second inning to Sataraka. She had retired 15 batters in a row from a leadoff walk in the second until the Bruins recorded their first hit of the game to start the seventh inning on a double down the left field line. Burroughs had allowed just one base hit in her previous 18.2 innings.

Burroughs hit two of the next four batters in the seventh inning to load the bases with two outs, prompting a pitching change from Alameda.

Meghan King entered and tossed a first pitch strike before getting UCLA's Gabrielle Maurice to foul a ball off down the left field line. Maurice launched the next pitch into the left field corner, but Korina Rosario made an incredible catch, crashing into the wall to secure the 3-0 victory.

"We were talking in the outfield and the coaches had us playing 'no doubles', so we were definitely playing back," said Rosario. "As soon as I saw it hit, I knew that I was going to catch it. I wasn't thinking that it would go over, I wasn't even thinking about the wall, I was just focused on the ball and I'll worry about the wall when I get there. So that's what I did. I caught it, slammed into the wall and turned around to see my whole team running out to give me a hug. It was great!"

Burroughs improved to 9-2 and finished with 6.2 shutout innings pitched, allowing one hit, one walk and recording five strikeouts. King closed out the game and earned the first save of her career.

FLORIDA STATE 12, CAL ST-NORTHRIDGE 3
03/05/2016, NORTHRIDGE, CA, Stacy Winsberg Tournament

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Offensive Explosion Gives Noles Two Wins On Saturday.
No. 12 Florida State takes down Cal State Northridge, 12-3, and UC Davis, 17-3 (5), to earn two wins on Saturday in the Stacy Winsberg Tournament.

NORTHRIDGE, CA – Playing in Northridge for Day Two of the 2016 Stacy Winsberg Tournament, the Seminole offense came to play over both games, totaling 29 runs in 12 innings as No. 12 Florida State (14-3) earned a 12-3 win over Cal State Northridge (9-8) in the early game of the day and wrapped up the day with a 17-3 victory in five innings against UC Davis (8-12).

“It was a great day,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “Coming off an emotional win last night, having to get up early and be here all day long, it was a test of mental endurance and mental toughness. I thought the team did a really good job of staying up. We had our wakeup call against Northridge early on, but got after it and it was a team effort in everything we did today. Excited about it and now we need to go get some rest and get after it tomorrow and hope the rain stays away.”

Florida State scored right away against the Matadors, plating two runs using some unconventional methods in the top of the first. Alex Powers was the first batter to reach with a two-out hit-by pitch, her third of the season. Powers statistically stole second as she simply walked up 60 feet when Jessica Warren thought she was hit by a pitch as well and started toward first, but the plate umpire ruled the pitch a ball.

Warren’s grounder toward short went under the glove of CSUN SS Sabrina Garcia and all the way to the wall in left center to score Powers and give the Noles a 1-0 lead, allowing Warren to end up at second base. After a walk to Sydney Broderick, Warren came in to score on a wild pitch and a throwing error from the CSUN catcher.

FSU starter Meghan King had scattered four hits over the first four innings and was aided by defensive double plays in the second and fourth innings to keep CSUN off the board.

The Matadors were finally able to get into the scoring column in the fifth inning, as singles by Ariana Wassmer and Mackenzie Babbitt put runners on the corners with one away. A wild pitch from King allowed the first CSUN run to score, cutting the lead to 2-1. An RBI double by Aliyah Ricks tied the game at 2-2 and ended King’s outing.

Jessica Burroughs entered the circle for FSU and gave up an RBI double to Savannah Horvath before getting a fly out to end the inning as Cal State Northridge held a 3-2 lead after five full innings.

The Seminoles battled back in the top of the sixth, posting three consecutive singles from Ellie Cooper, Victoria East and Alex Kossoff. Kossoff’s slap single to the pitcher was thrown wide of first, allowing Cooper to score and tie the game at 3-3. Zoe Casas made it 5-3 with a two-RBI single to center and Warren blasted her third home run of the season to push the FSU lead to 7-3.

FSU scored five more in the top of the seventh on a two-RBI double from Lauren Harris and a three-run home run by Warren. The double by Harris was the first of her career and it marked Warren’s third career game with two home runs, the first since May 22, 2015 at Tennessee.

Tessa Daniels closed out the game with a perfect seventh inning, retiring all three batters she faced. King finished with 4.2 innings pitched, seven hits and three runs allowed with two strikeouts as she did not factor in the decision. Burroughs (10-2) got the win in relief, allowing one hit in 1.1 shutout innings with three strikeouts.

In the UC Davis game, Florida State again scored quickly, plating four runs in the first inning. The Seminoles have now scored in the first inning in eight of the last nine games.

Morgan Klaevemann got things going with a single up the middle, reaching base in the top of the first for the 14th time in 19 games this season.

Walks to Powers and Warren loaded the bases for an RBI single by Carsyn Gordon. Cooper followed with an RBI single of her own, scoring two as Powers got into a run down and the ball got away. A double steal from Cooper at first and Gordon at third brought in the final run of the frame.

FSU brought in six runs in the second inning on a solo home run from Cali Harrod, RBI double from Casas, RBI singles from Broderick and Gordon, along with a sacrifice fly from East and Gordon scoring on a throwing error.

Another six Seminoles came in to score in the third inning to push the lead to 16-0. Warren and Korina Rosario added RBI singles and Gordon brought in a run on a sacrifice fly. Bases-loaded walks to East and Harrod, and a hit-by-pitch to Casas extended the Florida State lead as Casas added her second double of the game in the inning.

King was relieved in the circle entering the fourth inning, earning the win to move to 6-1 after 3.0 shutout innings, allowing two hits with zero walks and three strikeouts.

Tessa Daniels pitched the fourth inning for the Noles and gave up four hits and a walk with three runs, two earned, to allow UC Davis to cut the lead to 14-3.

In the Seminole half of the fourth, Warren doubled to lead off the inning and was followed by a single to left by Macey Cheatham. For the fourth consecutive plate appearance, Gordon brought in a run as she hit her second sacrifice fly of the game to right to make the final score of 17-3. Jasmine Palmer and Kossoff also added singles in the inning.

Abby Evans finished the game in the circle for the Noles in the top of the fifth, pitching around a single and a double to keep the Aggies off the board and secure FSU’s 11th consecutive victory.

Seminoles Crush CSUN On Final Day Of Stacy Winsberg Tournament.
Carsyn Gordon’s third grand slam of the season was one of seven extra-base hits as FSU defeated Cal State Northridge, 10-0 in six innings, on Sunday afternoon.

LOS ANGELES, CA – The Seminoles bats came out again on the final day of the 2016 Stacy Winsberg Tournament. No. 12 Florida State (17-3) used seven extra-base hits, including a walk-off grand slam by Carsyn Gordon to defeat CSUN (10-9) by a score of 10-0 in six innings at Easton Stadium on the campus of UCLA.

“Even though the threat of rain was in the area, it ended up being a beautiful day for softball,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “The whole team was loose, excited to play and it showed on the field. Great job all weekend out of everyone dealing with the challenges of playing games in multiple locations, the time changes and the different styles of play from our opponents. Looking forward to closing out this portion of the road trip at Fullerton on Tuesday and going from there.”

As they have nearly every game in the last few weeks, the Seminoles scored runs in the first inning, sparked by a leadoff walk to Morgan Klaevemann. Zoe Casas stepped in and drove an RBI double to the wall in right center, her team-leading eighth double of the season, to make it 1-0 FSU.

After a groundout moved Casas to third, Jessica Warren made it 2-0 with her fourth sacrifice fly of the year. The inning continued with a walk to Sydney Broderick and she came in to score on an RBI double by Carsyn Gordon, her 20th RBI of the season, to give the Noles a 3-0 lead after the first inning.

The Florida State offense created base hit opportunities from the second to the fourth inning on a pair of singles by Klaevemann and base hits by Alex Powers, Cali Harrod and Broderick, but were unable to bring across any runs.

The Noles broke back into the scoring column in the fifth, plating three runs on four extra-base hits. Powers got things going with a double to right center which was followed by a towering home run by Warren to right. It was Warren’s fifth home run of the season, giving her 24 for her career and moving her into a tie with Tiffany Daniels (1986-89) for 7th place all-time in FSU history.

Doubles from Gordon and Ellie Cooper later in the inning brought in another run to give the Seminoles a 6-0 lead going to the sixth inning.

FSU starter Meghan King had a solid performance in the circle, scattering one base hit in each of the first four innings while keeping the Matadors off the scoreboard. CSUN threatened in the fifth inning, with a pair of one-out singles to put a runner in scoring position, but a fly out to center and a groundout to King in the circle ended the inning.

In the FSU sixth, Klaevemann walked to open the inning and immediately stole second for her third stolen base of the game. It marked the first time that a Seminole had stolen three bases in a game since Tiffani Brown swiped three bases against Southern Miss on February 16, 2014.

The inning continued with a walk to Casas and an intentional walk to Warren, giving Gordon another bases loaded opportunity with two outs in the inning. For the third time this season, the freshman utility player crushed a grand slam, ending the game in a 10-0 run-rule victory.

Gordon’s three grand slams for the 2016 season puts her in a tie for No. 11 on the NCAA single-season list and tied for 25th on the NCAA career list in the category.

King (7-1) earned the complete-game victory in the circle, giving up six hits with zero walks and two strikeouts.

FSU Posts 10-1 Win Over Cal State Fullerton.
The No. 11 Seminoles scored multiple runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth to run away from Cal State Fullerton and post a 10-1 victory on Tuesday night.

FULLERTON, CA - For the 12th time in 21 games this season, No. 11 Florida State (18-3) didn't need the full seven innings to defeat it opponent, taking down Cal State Fullerton (13-8) by a score of 10-1 in six innings on Tuesday night. It marks the 13th win in a row for Florida State, dating back to February 20.

"It was tough out there early on, but I loved how the team stayed in and didn't get down on themselves," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We weren't able to get the offense going in the first couple innings and gave up that run in the second, but from pitching to defense to the hitters at the plate, they all trusted in the next pitch mentality and were able to stay in it and make plays. It's a nice win against a quality squad to wrap up our time in southern California."

Cal State Fullerton opened the scoring in the second inning behind a leadoff double by Sarah Moore. The Titans eventually loaded the bases on an infield bunt single and a fielding error by the Seminoles. The first run of the game came in after King hit Mikaela Francis with a pitch to make it 1-0 with one out and the bases loaded.

FSU got out of the inning on the next batter as a line drive to short was caught by Cali Harrod and she sprinted to second base to double up the runner and end the threat.

The Noles offense was limited to just one baserunner over the first three innings on a single by Zoe Casas as CSUF starter Sydney Golden was difficult to solve early on.

FSU managed to finally get on the board in the fourth inning as Casas led off with an infield single. Two batters later, Jessica Warren bashed her sixth home run of the season to right field to give the Seminoles a 2-1 lead.

The inning continued with singles from Sydney Broderick, Carsyn Gordon and an RBI single from Ellie Cooper. Harrod made it 4-1 FSU on a fielding error by the Titan defense on a grounder to the shortstop.

The Noles plated three more runs in the fifth inning, started by singles by Alex Powers and Warren. Broderick ripped a single through the right side to score Powers and a nicely executed first-and-third play allowed Warren to score and put Broderick on second. Cooper drove in her second RBI of the game on a single to right to give the Noles a 7-1 lead.

King settled in after the second inning, allowing just two runners on two walks over the next three innings. The redshirt freshman earned the win and moved to 8-1 on the year, finishing with 5.0 innings pitched, allowing two hits, two walks with an unearned run and one strikeout.

Florida State added three more runs in the sixth inning as each of the first two hitters - Harrod and Morgan Klaevemann - reached on an error. Warren also reached base later in the inning on an error by CSUF and Broderick laced a two-run double to the wall in the center to make the final score of 10-1.

Jessica Burroughs pitched the final inning of the game in relief of King. She recorded all three outs with a strikeout and also allowed a walk.

Meghan King Tosses Perfect Game As Noles Take Two.
Redshirt freshman Meghan King retired all 18 batters she faced in an 8-0 win over Tulsa and the Seminoles capped the day with a 3-1 win against Cal Poly.

PALO ALTO, CA – Despite imperfect weather conditions in northern California, as rain canceled the first day of the 2016 Louisville Slugger Classic on the campus of Stanford, there was perfection on the field for No. 11 Florida State (20-3) as redshirt freshman pitcher Meghan King tossed a perfect game in an 8-0 win over Tulsa (15-5). The Seminoles also played Cal Poly (15-6) later on Saturday afternoon and recorded a 3-1 victory against the Mustangs.

”Extremely excited about the trip so far in general and how we’ve grown as a team,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “This weekend, being cooped up with the rain and all of that has been tough. To come out today and get the bats swinging and make adjustments was really good to see.

“Outstanding job from Meghan King today. I hadn’t been a part of a perfect game as a part of this program – been close a few times – but this is a team effort. The defense played great and were playing for her pitch and she attacked the hitters. It feels really good today.”

King retired all 18 batters she faced against the Golden Hurricane, allowing only one ball to leave the infield on a fly out to center in the sixth. She also was efficient in the circle, tossing only 63 pitches for the game with five strikeouts and allowing only one batter to get a three-ball count for the entire game. Tulsa entered the weekend receiving votes in the ESPN/USA Softball poll.

It is the first perfect game for Florida State under head coach Lonni Alameda, and the first for FSU since Casey Hunter recorded a perfect game against St. Joseph’s on March 13, 2004.

“I wasn’t really aware that it was a perfect game until the last inning or two,” said King. “I felt really good warming up and once I got out there, I felt great and all of my pitches were breaking really well.

“Personally, I’m more of a ground ball pitcher and don’t get many strikeouts, so I have to trust in the defense every single play. I think my defense did a perfect, outstanding, excellent job today. There were a few plays that were key to the game and I really appreciate them. It’s awesome that I can have them behind my back and trust them every single play.”

FSU struck first in the opener against Tulsa as Morgan Klaevemann came around to score on an RBI single from Jessica Warren after she led off the game with a bunt single and swiped second base for her 17th stolen base of the season.

The Noles added to the lead in the second inning, scoring a pair of runs on an infield single by Klaevemann. Ellie Cooper hit a double and Alex Kossoff had walked earlier in the inning, ending up on second and third for Klaevemann. The throw from Tulsa pitcher Emily Watson got away from her first baseman, allowing Kossoff to score from second base and make it 3-0 FSU.

Florida State scored three more in the fifth off the first home run of Sydney Broderick’s FSU career. A walk to Alex Powers and a double by Warren allowed Broderick to make it 6-0 with a home run off the foul pole in left field. The junior transfer had hit 13 home runs in her first two collegiate seasons at BYU.

The Seminoles finished their scoring in the sixth inning, bringing in two runs. Victoria Daddis got things going with a pinch-hit walk and Cali Harrod re-entered to run at first. Harrod eventually came in to score on an RBI single to left by Zoe Casas. Victoria East came in to pinch-run for Casas and scored nearly immediately on Powers’ single to left for the final score of 8-0.

Watson took the loss for the Golden Hurricane, moving to 5-4 on the season. She entered the game with an ERA of 0.85, allowing just five earned runs in 41.1 innings in 2016, but the Seminoles tagged her for five earned runs in just 4.2 innings on Saturday afternoon, scoring six runs on eight hits as she recorded six strikeouts and issued two walks.

Against Cal Poly in the second game of the day, the game was scoreless until the top of the second when the Mustangs pushed across a run after a single up the middle from Sierra Hyland and an RBI double by Betsy Colburn to make it 1-0.

FSU battled back to tie the game in the third inning, following a walk to Harrod and an RBI double by Casas, her team-leading ninth double of the season.

The Noles extended the lead to 3-1 in the fourth, as FSU loaded the bases on a walk to Broderick and singles by Carsyn Gordon and Cooper. East pinch-hit for Kossoff and battled a walk on nine pitches to drive in a run and give FSU a 2-1 lead. Korina Rosario stepped in next and hit a sacrifice fly to left to bring in Gordon and make it 3-1 Seminoles.

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs settled in as the game continued and moved to 11-2 with the complete game victory. It marked the first time in her last eight appearances that Burroughs had allowed more than one hit as the redshirt junior gave up two total hits to the Mustangs, retiring the final 17 batters she faced and recording five strikeouts.

Meghan King Tosses Perfect Game As Noles Take Two.
Redshirt freshman Meghan King retired all 18 batters she faced in an 8-0 win over Tulsa and the Seminoles capped the day with a 3-1 win against Cal Poly.

PALO ALTO, CA – Despite imperfect weather conditions in northern California, as rain canceled the first day of the 2016 Louisville Slugger Classic on the campus of Stanford, there was perfection on the field for No. 11 Florida State (20-3) as redshirt freshman pitcher Meghan King tossed a perfect game in an 8-0 win over Tulsa (15-5). The Seminoles also played Cal Poly (15-6) later on Saturday afternoon and recorded a 3-1 victory against the Mustangs.

”Extremely excited about the trip so far in general and how we’ve grown as a team,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “This weekend, being cooped up with the rain and all of that has been tough. To come out today and get the bats swinging and make adjustments was really good to see.

“Outstanding job from Meghan King today. I hadn’t been a part of a perfect game as a part of this program – been close a few times – but this is a team effort. The defense played great and were playing for her pitch and she attacked the hitters. It feels really good today.”

King retired all 18 batters she faced against the Golden Hurricane, allowing only one ball to leave the infield on a fly out to center in the sixth. She also was efficient in the circle, tossing only 63 pitches for the game with five strikeouts and allowing only one batter to get a three-ball count for the entire game. Tulsa entered the weekend receiving votes in the ESPN/USA Softball poll.

It is the first perfect game for Florida State under head coach Lonni Alameda, and the first for FSU since Casey Hunter recorded a perfect game against St. Joseph’s on March 13, 2004.

“I wasn’t really aware that it was a perfect game until the last inning or two,” said King. “I felt really good warming up and once I got out there, I felt great and all of my pitches were breaking really well.

“Personally, I’m more of a ground ball pitcher and don’t get many strikeouts, so I have to trust in the defense every single play. I think my defense did a perfect, outstanding, excellent job today. There were a few plays that were key to the game and I really appreciate them. It’s awesome that I can have them behind my back and trust them every single play.”

FSU struck first in the opener against Tulsa as Morgan Klaevemann came around to score on an RBI single from Jessica Warren after she led off the game with a bunt single and swiped second base for her 17th stolen base of the season.

The Noles added to the lead in the second inning, scoring a pair of runs on an infield single by Klaevemann. Ellie Cooper hit a double and Alex Kossoff had walked earlier in the inning, ending up on second and third for Klaevemann. The throw from Tulsa pitcher Emily Watson got away from her first baseman, allowing Kossoff to score from second base and make it 3-0 FSU.

Florida State scored three more in the fifth off the first home run of Sydney Broderick’s FSU career. A walk to Alex Powers and a double by Warren allowed Broderick to make it 6-0 with a home run off the foul pole in left field. The junior transfer had hit 13 home runs in her first two collegiate seasons at BYU.

The Seminoles finished their scoring in the sixth inning, bringing in two runs. Victoria Daddis got things going with a pinch-hit walk and Cali Harrod re-entered to run at first. Harrod eventually came in to score on an RBI single to left by Zoe Casas. Victoria East came in to pinch-run for Casas and scored nearly immediately on Powers’ single to left for the final score of 8-0.

Watson took the loss for the Golden Hurricane, moving to 5-4 on the season. She entered the game with an ERA of 0.85, allowing just five earned runs in 41.1 innings in 2016, but the Seminoles tagged her for five earned runs in just 4.2 innings on Saturday afternoon, scoring six runs on eight hits as she recorded six strikeouts and issued two walks.

Against Cal Poly in the second game of the day, the game was scoreless until the top of the second when the Mustangs pushed across a run after a single up the middle from Sierra Hyland and an RBI double by Betsy Colburn to make it 1-0.

FSU battled back to tie the game in the third inning, following a walk to Harrod and an RBI double by Casas, her team-leading ninth double of the season.

The Noles extended the lead to 3-1 in the fourth, as FSU loaded the bases on a walk to Broderick and singles by Carsyn Gordon and Cooper. East pinch-hit for Kossoff and battled a walk on nine pitches to drive in a run and give FSU a 2-1 lead. Korina Rosario stepped in next and hit a sacrifice fly to left to bring in Gordon and make it 3-1 Seminoles.

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs settled in as the game continued and moved to 11-2 with the complete game victory. It marked the first time in her last eight appearances that Burroughs had allowed more than one hit as the redshirt junior gave up two total hits to the Mustangs, retiring the final 17 batters she faced and recording five strikeouts.

No. 10 Noles Extend Winning Streak to 17 Games With DH Sweep.
Florida State takes both games of a doubleheader on Saturday, topping Syracuse, 4-2 and 4-1

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Opening ACC play on Saturday, No. 10 Florida State (22-3, 2-0 ACC) earned a pair of victories over Syracuse (12-13, 1-4 ACC) on JoAnne Graf Field. The Seminoles posted a 4-2 win in game one of the doubleheader and capped the day with a 4-1 victory. The wins extend FSU’s winning streak to 17 games, tied for the ninth-longest winning streak in program history.

The series win also extends Florida State’s ACC series unbeaten streak to 26. The Noles have not dropped a series to a conference opponent since 2012.

“It was a tough, but overall good, day for us,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We struggled with some situations, but had some big hits to bring in key runs. On the other side, JB and Meghan did a great job of limiting their chances and holding the lead. Credit to Syracuse, they haven’t given up many runs to anyone this season and we’ll need to make some adjustments to be successful tomorrow.”

The Seminoles scored a run in the first inning of game one without the ball leaving the infield as Alex Powers had the only base hit of the frame on a single to the second baseman. Powers moved up to second on a wild pitch and a pair of illegal pitches from Syracuse starter AnnaMarie Gatti allowed Powers to score and give Florida State a 1-0 lead.

Carsyn Gordon led off the second inning and reached base on a Syracuse fielding error as the Orange second baseman couldn’t hold on to her line drive. Gordon moved up to third after she stole second, followed by a wild pitch. Back-to-back RBIs on a single from Alex Kossoff and a double from Victoria East made it 3-0 Florida State.

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs picked up where she left off last week, not allowing a baserunner until a second-inning walk to Sydney O’Hara. The walk snapped a streak of 20 consecutive batters retired, dating back to Cal Poly on March 12.

The Orange got into the scoring column in the third inning after Alyssa Dewes hit a triple to centerfield and she eventually came into score on a sacrifice fly by Sammy Fernandez to cut the FSU lead to 3-1.

The Noles added their final run with a triple as well as Gordon tripled to left center with one out in the fourth. Ellie Cooper placed a great squeeze bunt, allowing Gordon to score and Cooper ended up on second on the play.

Burroughs settled in and retired the next 10 batters, including four strikeouts, before Dewes hit a double down the left field line. Dewes came around to score an unearned run on a two-out fielding error by the Seminoles to cut the lead to 4-2.

Burroughs struck out two more in the seventh inning to secure the victory and improve to 12-2 on the year. She allowed three hits, two runs, one earned with one walk and a season-high 11 strikeouts. It is the first time in her last nine appearances that Burroughs has given up three hits in a game. She has surrendered just 10 hits in her last 39.0 innings.

In game two, the Noles again scored immediately in the first inning, plating two runs on a home run by Powers to score Zoe Casas who had an infield single earlier in the inning.

For the second straight game, a double by Victoria East in the second inning drove in a run and Cali Harrod added an RBI fielder’s choice to make it 4-0 FSU after two innings.

Meghan King got the start in the circle for FSU and continued her dominance, retiring the first seven hitters of the game, along with two strikeouts. An FSU fielding error allowed Hannah Dossett to reach base in the third inning, snapping King’s streak of 29 consecutive batters retired, dating back to March 8 at Cal State Fullerton. The Orange added two more singles in the inning to cut the lead to 4-1.

It became a pitcher’s duel the rest of the way between FSU’s King and SU’s Jocelyn Cater. From the bottom of the third until the end of the game, the only batter to reach base for either team was Florida State’s Sydney Broderick as the junior catcher recorded a pair of doubles – one in the third and one in the sixth – but would be left stranded each time.

King started a new streak, retiring the final 13 batters of the game to earn the win and move to 10-1 on the year. She allowed just two hits, one unearned run with zero walks and six strikeouts in the complete game victory.

SU’s Cater (6-4) went 6.0 innings and gave up four runs on six hits with zero walks and three strikeouts.

No. 10 Noles Extend Winning Streak to 17 Games With DH Sweep.
Florida State takes both games of a doubleheader on Saturday, topping Syracuse, 4-2 and 4-1

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Opening ACC play on Saturday, No. 10 Florida State (22-3, 2-0 ACC) earned a pair of victories over Syracuse (12-13, 1-4 ACC) on JoAnne Graf Field. The Seminoles posted a 4-2 win in game one of the doubleheader and capped the day with a 4-1 victory. The wins extend FSU’s winning streak to 17 games, tied for the ninth-longest winning streak in program history.

The series win also extends Florida State’s ACC series unbeaten streak to 26. The Noles have not dropped a series to a conference opponent since 2012.

Burroughs settled in and retired the next 10 batters, including four strikeouts, before Dewes hit a double down the left field line. Dewes came around to score an unearned run on a two-out fielding error by the Seminoles to cut the lead to 4-2.

Burroughs struck out two more in the seventh inning to secure the victory and improve to 12-2 on the year. She allowed three hits, two runs, one earned with one walk and a season-high 11 strikeouts. It is the first time in her last nine appearances that Burroughs has given up three hits in a game. She has surrendered just 10 hits in her last 39.0 innings.

In game two, the Noles again scored immediately in the first inning, plating two runs on a home run by Powers to score Zoe Casas who had an infield single earlier in the inning.

Three-Run Sixth Leads No. 10 FSU To Sweep Of Syracuse.
Ellie Cooper's RBI triple sparked a three-run sixth inning and carried the Noles to a 3-0 victory over Syracuse on Sunday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Battling until its final time at the plate, No. 10 Florida State (23-3, 3-0 ACC) scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth to earn a 3-0 victory over Syracuse (12-14, 1-5 ACC) on Sunday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field. Junior second baseman Ellie Cooper hit a one-out RBI triple in the sixth to open the scoring and pitcher Jessica Burroughs tossed 10 strikeouts in the shutout victory to complete the sweep of the Orange.

FSU has swept the season series against conference foes 18 times in its last 26 series, dating back to 2012. Overall, the Noles are 65-8 in their last 73 games against ACC regular season games.

The victory extends FSU's winning streak to 18 games, tied for the sixth-longest in school history. The Noles last won 18 in a row from March 13-28, 1998.

"Today was a battle and I loved the fight from the entire team," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We didn't get a runner to second base until the sixth inning, but you wouldn't have known that looking in the dugout. Everyone was in it pitch-by-pitch, fighting and supporting each other regardless of what happened earlier in the game, knowing that it can just take one pitch, one hit, one play to make a big difference in the game. Nice win to end the weekend and something to build on as we continue into the conference season."

Much like Saturday's game, it was a pitcher's duel between Syracuse's Jocelyn Cater and FSU's Burroughs. Cater allowed just two baserunners in her 4.0 innings of work on a single by Jessica Warren in the first and a walk to Zoe Casas in the fourth inning. That was as far as either Seminole runner would reach as both were left stranded.

Burroughs retired the first seven Orange batters of the game before giving up a walk in the third to Alicia Hansen. She pitched around a single later in the frame to keep the game scoreless through three innings.

Syracuse brought in Sydney O'Hara in the fifth to pitch for Cater and she gave up a one-out walk to Cali Harrod in the sixth inning. Harrod immediately stole second on the first pitch to Cooper to move into scoring position. Cooper drove a 3-1 pitch deep over the head of SU centerfielder Maddi Doane for an RBI triple, giving the Noles a 1-0 lead.

Casas followed with a groundout to first base, scoring Cooper from third to make it 2-0 Noles. Warren capped off the scoring with her seventh home run of the season, a solo shot to right for the final score of 3-0.

Burroughs (13-2) retired the side in the seventh for her 10th consecutive victory. The redshirt junior struck out the side in the second and fifth innings on her way to 10 strikeouts for the game. It marked her second consecutive game with double-digit punchouts as she finished Saturday's game against the Orange with 11 strikeouts. Burroughs finished the complete game shutout with just three hits allowed and two walks.

No. 11 Florida State Takes Down North Carolina.

Five RBI from Ellie Cooper leads the Seminoles to a 15-6 victory over the Tar Heels on Friday night.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - Extending its winning streak to an NCAA-leading 19 games, No. 11 Florida State (24-3, 4-0 ACC) posted a 15-6 victory over North Carolina (15-15, 3-4 ACC) on Friday night at Anderson Stadium. Junior second baseman Ellie Cooper led the Seminoles with five RBI on 3-for-4 hitting as FSU continued its undefeated start in ACC play.

"Intense night, but glad to get the win," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "It wasn't a smooth game, but you have to fight and keep battling until the final out. We had some timely hits from Ellie and Zoe, along with defensive plays to help maintain the lead as North Carolina wasn't giving up. Looking forward to getting some rest before our doubleheader tomorrow as it will be a tough afternoon."

The Seminoles got on the board right away with a pair of runs in the first inning. Morgan Klaevemann got things started with a leadoff walk, reaching base to lead off the game for the 17th time in her 23 games played this year.

After Jessica Warren was hit by a pitch, Klaevemann came in to score on an RBI single to left by Alex Powers to make it 1-0 Florida State. It marked the 41st consecutive game that the Seminoles have scored a run, the fifth-longest streak in school history.

A walk to Sydney Broderick loaded the bases and Zoe Casas extended the lead to 2-0 with an RBI single to left. FSU scored in the first inning for the 18th time in 27 games this season and are 17-1 in those contests.

Ellie Cooper made it 4-0 in the second inning with a home run to left center, scoring Cali Harrod who led off the frame with a four-pitch walk.

North Carolina battled back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the third. Singles from Aquila Mateen and Taylor Wike put runners on the corners with one out. A successful double steal and an RBI double from Kristen Brown cut the FSU lead to 4-2 after three full innings.

Cooper continued to swing a hot bat, adding to the Seminole lead with a two-RBI double into the right field corner to score Harrod and Klaevemann who reached on a triple and hit-by-pitch respectively. Cooper has been powerful in recent games as six of her last nine hits have gone for extra bases.

UNC plated two more runs and made it 7-4 in the fourth on an RBI double by Mateen and throwing error that pulled Powers off the bag at first, allowing Mateen to score on the play.

Jessica Burroughs entered to pitch the final out of the fourth, ending Meghan King's outing in the circle. King pitched 3.2 innings and gave up four runs, three earned on seven hits with one walk and three strikeouts. It marked the first time in six games and 29.1 innings that King had allowed an earned run.

The Noles added two more in the sixth on a bases-loaded walk to Powers and a sacrifice fly by Broderick to extend the FSU lead to 9-4.

A trio of walks by Burroughs in the Carolina half of the sixth set the stage for the Tar Heels to bring in a run on a hit-by-pitch to Brown to make it 9-5 going into the final inning.

Florida State put the game out of reach with a six-run seventh inning. Singles by Casas, East, Harrod, Klaevemann and Warren, along with sacrifice flies from Cooper and Casas extended the Seminole lead to 15-5.

The Noles have only needed to bat in the seventh inning nine times this season, with all of the home and run-rule victories, but have made those innings count, scoring in six of those nine games in the seventh inning. FSU has scored at least five runs three times in the final frame, all in road games at FIU, Cal State Northridge and North Carolina.

UNC scored a run in its half of the seventh on an RBI triple from Mateen to score Leah Murray who led off the frame with a single for the final score of 15-6.

Burroughs moved to 14-2 on the season with the relief victory, tossing 3.1 innings and giving up three hits and two runs with five walk and two strikeouts. It is her 11th consecutive victory and she now has an ERA of 1.34 on the season.

Seminoles Sweep UNC To Extend Winning Streak To 21 Games.
No. 11 Florida State earns a pair of victories on Saturday, 9-6 and 12-5, to complete the regular-season sweep of North Carolina.

CHAPEL HILL, NC – Continuing its perfect start in conference play, No. 11 Florida State (26-3, 6-0 ACC) completed the regular-season sweep of North Carolina (15-17, 3-6 ACC) with a pair of wins on Saturday afternoon at Anderson Stadium. The Noles posted a 9-6 victory in game one of the doubleheader and finished with a 12-5 win.

The Seminoles earned the series victory over North Carolina and are unbeaten in their last 27 series against ACC opponents, going 24-0-3 since losing the series with Maryland on May 5-6, 2012. Over that span, Florida State has swept 19 teams and posted a 1-1 split with Virginia Tech (2014), Notre Dame (2014) and Louisville (2015).

“It is always a challenge to win on the road, especially here at North Carolina,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We didn’t have our best day in the circle, but I loved how Meghan and JB never quit and kept fighting for the next pitch. At the plate, we got production up and down the lineup and were able to score in bunches. Pleased to get the win today and wrap up a solid weekend.”

For the 19th time this season, FSU got on the board in the first inning scoring a run on a sacrifice fly from Alex Powers. Morgan Klaevemann opened the game with a walk, which effectively became a double as she immediately stole second base. Moving up to third on a UNC fielding error, she came in to score on a fly out down the left field line.

North Carolina took the lead in the bottom half of the inning, getting a pair of runners on with a single from Taylor Wike and Berlynne Delamora being hit by a pitch. Kendra Lynch drove in both runs to give UNC a 2-1 lead with a two-RBI single through the right side.

The Seminoles brought 12 batters to the plate in an eight-run second inning to post a 9-2 lead. Carsyn Gordon recorded two doubles in the inning and Zoe Casas launched the first home run of her career on a two-run HR to right. Cali Harrod and Sydney Broderick added RBI singles in the inning while Powers brought in a pair of Seminoles on a single to left.

The Tar Heels answered back with three runs in the bottom of the second to cut the lead to 9-5 on singles by Aquila Mateen and Destiny DeBerry, followed by a home run by Taylor Wike.

UNC added another run in the third inning after a leadoff single from Kristen Brown and she eventually came around to score on an FSU throwing error.

The game settled down the rest of the way as FSU’s Meghan King and UNC’s relief pitcher Lauren Fuller kept the game at 9-6 Florida State until the final out. Fuller entered to start the third inning to replace starter Kendra Lynch (13-13) who allowed nine runs, eight earned on six hits with three walks and zero strikeouts.

Fuller scattered four hits and three walks in the final 5.0 innings but did not allow the Noles to score as FSU left the bases loaded in the fourth and sixth inning.

FSU’s King (11-1) tossed four scoreless innings to close out the game and earn the win. She finished with 7.0 innings pitched and allowed eight hits, six runs with three walks and three strikeouts.

In game two, the Seminoles struck first with a pair of runs in the second inning. Back-to-back doubles by Gordon and Victoria East brought in the first run of the game and Harrod made it 2-0 on an RBI single to centerfield.

FSU added four in the third inning, highlighted by a three-run double from Harrod and a bases-loaded walk by East. Powers and Warren added singles in the inning as the Seminoles took a 6-0 lead.

UNC got on the scoreboard in the fourth inning following two singles and two walks, including a bases-loaded walk to Kristen Brown to make it 6-1 FSU. Following a strikeout from FSU starter Jessica Burroughs, UNC plated two more runs on a Seminole throwing error to cut the lead to 6-3 Florida State after three full innings.

The Noles added to their lead in the fourth on a two-run home run from Broderick, scoring Alex Powers, who singled and stole second base earlier in the inning.

North Carolina got back in the game with two runs in the bottom of the fourth. Jill Ferraro led off the inning with a single and was pinch-run for by Kiana Sherlund. Sherlund later stole second and eventually scored on the play as FSU committed a pair of errors. The inning continued and a pair of walks and an RBI single from Brown cut the lead to 8-5 FSU.

A four-run fifth inning pushed the Seminole advantage to 12-5. Gordon and East led off the inning with singles and a walk to Harrod loaded the bases. Klaevemann knocked a two-RBI single back up the middle and Ellie Cooper followed with a two-RBI double, her seventh extra-base hit in her last 10 hits.

Burroughs shut down the Tar Heels the rest of the way and improved to 15-2 with the complete-game victory. She gave up seven hits, five runs, three earned with five walks and four strikeouts.

UNC’s Fuller (0-1) took the loss after allowing 12 runs on 12 hits with two walks and zero strikeouts in 4.0 innings.

No. 9 Florida State Splits At No. 22 Notre Dame.
The Seminoles' winning streak ends at 22 games as FSU and Notre Dame split the doubleheader on Sunday afternoon.

NOTRE DAME, IN - For the first time in 2016, No. 9/8 Florida State (27-4, 7-1 ACC) dropped a conference game as the Noles and Irish split a doubleheader on Sunday afternoon at Melissa Cook Stadium. FSU posted a 14-5 victory over No. 22/20 Notre Dame (26-6, 5-3 ACC) in game one, and fell 5-4 in game two as Bailey Bigler hit a walk-off single.

The loss snapped FSU's winning streak at 22 games, ranking as the fourth-longest streak in school history. It also marked the first loss in ACC play since April 12, 2015, a streak of 14 consecutive conference wins, tied for the second-longest streak in FSU history.

"Notre Dame is a solid team and these games will give us things to work on and experience to build on for the postseason," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We swung the bat well in the first game, and after giving up some early runs, JB closed out the game very well. In game two, we struggled in some situations but kept in it and Ellie did great to battle and tie it up late. We weren't able to make all the plays toward the end and we came up short."

Powers carried the Seminoles in game one, batting 4-for-4 with five RBI, four runs scored and a pair of home runs. It marked the first time the Noles had a player with multiple home runs in a game since Jessica Warren at Cal State Northridge on March 5, 2016.

Florida State scored three runs in the second inning to open the scoring in game one. Powers led off with a double and eventually scored on a sacrifice fly from Zoe Casas. Carsyn Gordon added an RBI single and she came into score on stolen base by Victoria East when the catcher's throw was wild.

Notre Dame fought back in the bottom of the second and plated its first run with an RBI single from Megan Sorlie. The Irish added another run on a wild pitch from FSU starter Jessica Burroughs to cut the lead to 3-2.

The Noles added three more in the top of the third on a two-run home run by Warren and an RBI single by Sydney Broderick.

The Irish got within a run yet again in the bottom of the third, as Micaela Arizmendi lifted a three-run home run over the wall in left to make it a 6-5 FSU advantage.

Burroughs and the FSU defense settled in the rest of the way as the redshirt junior pitcher retired 15 of the last 16 batters she faced, allowing just a single to Sorlie in the sixth over the final five frames. She improved to 16-2 on the year with the complete-game victory, giving up five runs on six hits with three walks and six strikeouts.

Florida State continued to score in bunches, tallying two runs in the fifth on a two-run home run by Powers. In the sixth, Powers added a three-run shot and Harrod came into score off a ND throwing error to complete the four-run inning.

The Noles finished their scoring in the top of the seventh, bringing in two runs on an RBI double by Harrod and another score on another Notre Dame error for the final score of 14-5.

The 14 runs scored against No. 22 Notre Dame marks the most runs scored by Florida State against a ranked team in the eight seasons under Alameda.

In game two, Notre Dame took a quick lead as leadoff hitter Karley Wester hit a triple to left and later came in to score on an FSU throwing error. FSU starter Meghan King got out of the jam by striking out the final two batters of the inning.

FSU equalized in the top of the third, loading the bases on walks to Morgan Klaevemann, Ellie Cooper and Powers. Broderick drove in a run to tie the game after reaching on a catcher's interference.

Notre Dame took the lead in the bottom of the fifth as the Irish opened the inning with three singles, including an RBI base hit from Kimmy Sullivan. A two-RBI triple from Bigler gave ND a 4-1 lead.

The Noles tied the game in the sixth after loading the bases on walks to Gordon and Cali Harrod, along with an infield single by Klaevemann. Cooper drilled a two-out, three-run triple into the right field corner to tie the game at 4-4.

Notre Dame used singles in the seventh from Sullivan, Sorlie and Bigler to earn the 5-4 walk-off victory.

King (11-2) took the loss after giving up five runs, 11 hits with four walks and four strikeouts.

Notre Dame's Allie Rhodes improved to 12-4 on the year with the complete game victory, scattering seven hits, four runs, three earned with six walks and nine strikeouts.

No. 9 Florida State Splits At No. 22 Notre Dame.
The Seminoles' winning streak ends at 22 games as FSU and Notre Dame split the doubleheader on Sunday afternoon.

NOTRE DAME, IN - For the first time in 2016, No. 9/8 Florida State (27-4, 7-1 ACC) dropped a conference game as the Noles and Irish split a doubleheader on Sunday afternoon at Melissa Cook Stadium. FSU posted a 14-5 victory over No. 22/20 Notre Dame (26-6, 5-3 ACC) in game one, and fell 5-4 in game two as Bailey Bigler hit a walk-off single.

The loss snapped FSU's winning streak at 22 games, ranking as the fourth-longest streak in school history. It also marked the first loss in ACC play since April 12, 2015, a streak of 14 consecutive conference wins, tied for the second-longest streak in FSU history.

Lonni Alameda Earns Career Win No. 500.
No. 9 Florida State defeats Jacksonville, 4-0, on Wednesday night, giving Seminole head coach Lonni Alameda her 500th career win.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Another milestone in an impressive coaching career happened on Wednesday night for Florida State head coach Lonni Alameda. No. 9 FSU (28-4) posted a 4-0 victory over Jacksonville (18-20), giving Alameda her 500th win in her coaching career.

Alameda is in her eighth season at FSU and holds a 343-124 mark as the leader of the Seminole softball program. She has been named the ACC Coach of the Year in each of the last three seasons - 2013, 2014 and 2015 - and has won three ACC Championships. Alameda earned 157 wins at UNLV from 2004-08, guiding the Rebels to the NCAA Tournament in 2005 and earning Mountain West Conference and NFCA West Region Coach of the Year honors.

"The celebration of this is for the student-athletes," said Alameda. "Over time and all the people you've been around, it's pretty awesome to coach an amazing game. You try to create this culture, this family atmosphere and you can either talk about it or know it is a real feeling. It almost feels like Christmas morning hanging out with your family. It is awesome."

Jessica Burroughs was dominant in the circle on Wednesday night for the Seminoles, retiring 15 of the first 16 batters she faced, allowing just a single up the middle by Heather Roberts in the fourth inning before being replaced by Meghan King for the start of the sixth inning.

After Jacksonville loaded the bases with no outs after a base hit, walk and a fielder's choice, Burroughs re-entered the game and got the next three batters to pop out to end the threat.

Burroughs tossed a perfect seventh to end the game and secure the victory, moving to 17-2 on the season. The redshirt junior faced just one over the minimum, giving up one hit in 7.0 innings of shutout softball with 10 strikeouts and zero walks.

"It was big for Jessica to get out there as she worked on some stuff yesterday and was able to implement it today," added Alameda. "She looked really sharp. This time of year, sometimes you get excited about the conference games and the midweeks are hard to get up for. To get the W today was huge as we executed the gameplan."

The Seminole offense was limited throughout the game by Jacksonville's Victoria Brown as she kept the ball low in the zone and cause several players to groundout throughout the evening.

FSU finally broke into the scoring column in the third after Cali Harrod blooped a single behind the first baseman, followed by a hit-by-pitch to Morgan Klaevemann. Ellie Cooper drove a pitch into left center, easily scoring Harrod and Klaevemann to give the Noles a 2-0 lead.

The Seminoles added to the lead in the sixth, making it 4-0 on a two-RBI single by Jessica Warren. Alex Powers started the inning with a single and moved up to second on an illegal pitch and stole third to get into scoring position. A walk to Broderick and a stolen base by pinch-runner Victoria East put runners in scoring position for Warren, who knocked a single to right center.

The stolen base by East in the sixth inning was the sixth stolen base of the game for FSU, giving the Noles 76 stolen bases on the season. Klaevemann, East, Warren, Harrod, Powers and Korina Rosario each swiped a bag against the Dolphins as Florida State matched its season-high in stolen bases. The Noles also stole six bases at North Carolina on March 26.

Noles Post A Run-Rule Victory Over NC State.
No. 9 Florida State defeats NC State, 10-2 in six innings, on Friday night in game one of the series.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Knocking 13 hits, including five for extra bases, No. 9 Florida State (29-4, 8-1 ACC) opened up the three-game series with NC State (17-22, 3-7 ACC) with a 10-2 win in six innings on Friday night at JoAnne Graf Field. It is the 10th consecutive win at home against an ACC opponent, and the Noles have won 15 of their last 16 conference games overall.

"Something that has been great with Coach Wilson and Coach Snider is they have been working hard with the girls on the process of their at bat," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Each at bat is meaningful to the entire team and everyone comes to the plate with a plan for themselves and what their strengths are. And starting to see that put in to play and believing in it, and the smiles that come along with it, is pretty neat."

The Noles scored in five of their six trips to the plate on Friday night and jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead in the first inning after Alex Powers lined a two-out single, stole second and came into score on an RBI single by Jessica Warren.

FSU added an unearned run in the second when Carsyn Gordon led off with a double and eventually came in to score on a NCSU fielding error off the bat of Cali Harrod.

NC State tied the game at 2-2 in the top of the third, scoring two unearned runs after recording singles by Alyssa Compton, Molly Hutchison and Meredith Burroughs, along with a pair of Seminole errors.

The Seminoles immediately retook the lead in the bottom of the third, scoring two runs, all with two outs. Warren got things started with a single and came into score on a RBI double by Sydney Broderick. An RBI single from Gordon plated Broderick and gave the Noles a 4-2 lead.

A four-run fourth for Florida State broke the game open, highlighted by a three-run home run by Warren, her ninth of the season. Ellie Cooper added an RBI single in the inning, scoring Harrod after she lined a double to right center.

FSU closed out the game in the sixth as Morgan Klaevemann reached base to start the inning when the NC State first baseman dropped the throw from shortstop. Cooper added a single up the middle and Powers ended the game with a two-run double to centerfield for a 10-2 victory in six innings.

Meghan King was steady in the circle, bending but not breaking in the complete-game victory. At least one Wolfpack hitter reached base in five of the six innings, but only twice did a runner reach third base. King gave up eight hits, two unearned runs with zero walks and two strikeouts as she improved to 12-2 on the season.

"It comes back to maturity," added Alameda. "Meghan did a good job, was giving up some singles as they found the holes here and there. But she was not freaking out, kept pitching her game and kept her composure in the circle for us. To start the series with a win is huge and a goal of ours is always to win the series, so we'll have an opportunity to do that tomorrow."

Florida State Earns Walk-Off Victory Over NC State.
An RBI double by Zoe Casas in the seventh inning gives the No. 9 Seminoles a series victory over the Wolfpack with a 5-4 win on Saturday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Needing all seven innings to extend its home winning streak to 14 games, No. 9 Florida State (30-4, 9-1 ACC) posted a 5-4, walk-off victory over NC State (17-23, 3-8 ACC) on Saturday night to win the regular season series over the Wolfpack. An RBI double in the bottom of the seventh by Zoe Casas to score Alex Kossoff secured the win for FSU.

Florida State is unbeaten in its last 29 conference series, dating back to 2012, with 19 sweeps. The Seminoles have won the ACC regular season title in each of the last three seasons and are 71-9 in their last 80 games against conference opponents.

"These sorts of games come down to maturity and handling adversity," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We had a little breakdown in the fifth and sixth, but worked our way through it and didn't let it keep us from attacking the next pitch. Battling through situations like tonight not only helped us get the win tonight, but will help us have confidence when we are tested the rest of the way and into the postseason."

The Noles jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead in the first inning. Morgan Klaevemann started the game with a walk and stole second and third before Ellie Cooper reached on a walk. Alex Powers followed with an RBI single and Jessica Warren added an RBI of her own on a fielder's choice to the shortstop.

Sydney Broderick stepped in and hit a 3-2 pitch over the wall in right center for her third home run of the season, giving the Noles a 4-0 lead.

FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs retired the side in the first inning and kept the Wolfpack off the scoreboard until the fifth inning. Alyssa Compton led off the frame with a single and an FSU fielding error allowed Macauley Prickett to reach base. Molly Hutchison cut the lead to 4-3 FSU with her seventh home run of the season.

NC State tied the game in the sixth as the Wolfpack again got the leadoff batter on with a base hit. Hanna Sommer singled to left and was pinch run for by Molly Martin. Martin moved up to second on a sac bunt and eventually came in to score on an RBI single by Compton to make it 4-4.

Florida State had several opportunities at the plate throughout the game, getting at least one runner on in each inning and two on in the second, third and fourth, but NC State's pitcher Courtney Mirabella limited the damage and kept FSU off the board to allow her team to tie the game.

FSU's Meghan King came in to pitch the seventh inning for the Seminoles and allowed a leadoff single to Tyler Ross. Ross stole second and later attempted to score on a single up the middle by Meredith Burroughs. Klaevemann cleanly gloved the ball in centerfield and threw home, retiring Ross at the plate and preserving the 4-4 game.

It was the 10th outfield assist of her career for the sophomore from Refugio, Texas.

King retired the final batter of the seventh inning with a strikeout to give the Noles a chance to win it in the bottom half.

Broderick led off the inning with a single to right field and Carsyn Gordon was hit by a pitch for the second time in the game. Alex Kossoff came on to run for Broderick and second and came in to score on a walk-off double by Zoe Casas to left center, giving Florida State a 5-4 win.

King improved to 12-2 on the season with the relief victory, allowing two hits in 1.0 innings with two strikeouts. Burroughs gave up six hits in 6.0 innings, four runs, three earned with zero walks and eight strikeouts.

Mirabella (11-12) took the loss after allowing five runs on eight hits with six walks and three strikeouts over 6.0 innings.

No. 9 Seminoles Sweep NC State.
Florida State records its 15th run-rule victory of the season on Sunday afternoon with a 12-4 victory in five innings over NC State.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Recording a regular season sweep in ACC play for the 20th time in its last 29 conference series, No. 9 Florida State (31-4, 10-1 ACC) finished a perfect weekend with a 12-4 victory in five innings over NC State (17-24, 3-9 ACC) on Sunday afternoon. It marked the 15th time this season that the Seminoles have earned a run-rule victory.

Sunday’s game was also FSU Softball’s “Paint It Pink” game, where the team wore special pink jerseys for the game to raise awareness for breast cancer and pink shirts were available for fans for a $10 donation to the Sharon Ewing Walker Breast Health Center of Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare.

The FSU players also wore gray bows in their hair to bring awareness for brain cancer, as Madison Marshall and Monk Bonasorte, two people close to the program are currently battling various brain tumors this spring.

“Cancer impacts everyone, and we love having a special day to honor those who are are fighting through this terrible disease,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “From Monk and Madison right now, to Taylor Foster and others that have been such a big part of this program, we want to do whatever we can to raise money, raise awareness, raise spirits and play for those who can’t.

“The game is almost secondary at that point, but I thought we played well this afternoon. It is difficult facing a team for the third time and we did an excellent job of making adjustments and taking advantages of our opportunities. JB tossed a great game and we were able to get the bats going and put some runs on the board.”

For the third straight game, FSU scored immediately in the bottom of the first, putting up five runs to break out to an early 5-0 lead. Morgan Klaevemann led off the game with a walk, one of four walks for the sophomore on the day, and stole second base. Ellie Cooper pushed a bunt past the NC State pitcher Brittany Nimmo and into the hole vacated by the Wolfpack second baseman who left to cover first, allowing Klaevemann to score on the infield single.

After a double by Alex Powers, Sydney Broderick made it 2-0 with a sacrifice fly to center field. An RBI double by Zoe Casas and a two-RBI single from Victoria East, both with two outs, closed out the scoring in the opening inning for Florida State.

It marked the 17th time that the Seminoles have scored five or more runs in an inning this season.

Cooper added to the lead with an RBI triple in the second inning, her team-leading fourth triple of the season, to score Klaevemann and make it 6-0 Florida State.

NC State threatened in the fourth inning as Molly Hutchison led off the frame with a double to left, followed by a four-pitch walk to Meredith Burroughs. FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs got the next batter to ground into a double play to third as Warren fielded the ball, stepped on the bag and tossed to Cooper at second base to complete the play. A groundout to third ended the inning and kept the game at 6-0.

The Noles brought in three more in the fourth to take a 9-0 lead in three different ways. Broderick drove in a run on an RBI single to left, Casas added another with her fourth sacrifice fly of the season and a bases-loaded walk to Klaevemann brought in the final run of the frame.

NC State delayed the conclusion of the game, scoring four runs in the top of the fifth inning to cut the FSU lead to 9-4. FSU’s Burroughs had faced just two batters over the minimum through the first four innings, but allowed the first two runners to reach base in the fifth on a pair of singles.

After NC State moved the runners to second and third on sacrifice bunt, freshman pitcher Tessa Daniels entered the circle for the Noles. Daniels retired the first batter she faced on a line out to third for the second out of the inning, but a two-RBI single from Tyler Ross and a two-run home run from Hutchison extended the game into the bottom of the fifth. Daniels ended the inning with a strikeout, her fourth of the season.

Powers led off the Seminole fifth inning with her second double of the game, followed by Warren’s second hit-by-pitch of the game. Broderick drove in her third RBI of the game on a single to center, extending the FSU lead to 10-4.

After a walk to Carsyn Gordon, her third of the game, to load the bases, East made it 11-4 after reaching on a fielding error by NC State second baseman, Molly Martin. Freshman Jasmine Palmer came to the plate as a pinch hitter with the bases loaded and drove in the final run on an RBI ground out to the second baseman, securing the 12-4 victory in five innings for Florida State.

Burroughs (18-2) earned the win, giving up two runs on four hits with one walk and four strikeouts. In relief, Daniels tossed 0.2 innings, giving up two hits, two runs with zero walks and one strikeout.

FLORIDA STATE 10, BOSTON COLLEGE 2

No. 8 Seminoles Win Series at Boston College.
Florida State defeats Boston College, 10-2 in six innings and 2-0, to earn wins in both games of the doubleheader on April 16.

CHESTNUT HILL, MA – For the 30th consecutive time, FSU has earned the series victory over a conference opponent as No. 8 Florida State (33-4, 12-1 ACC) posted wins in both games of the doubleheader with Boston College (20-17, 4-7 ACC) on April 16. The Noles took game one, 10-2 in six innings, and closed out the day with a 2-0 shutout victory.

“We’re young and while I’m glad that we got the wins today, we need to make sure we stay focused and in it until the final out of the day,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “I thought we came out strong in game one and did a good job of staying on the attack, but in game two I thought we relaxed a bit. That sometimes happens at this point of the season and we were able to make plays when we needed to, but we’ll need to learn from this as we move toward the postseason.”

FSU got on the board first in game one, scoring four runs in the second inning, all with two outs. Zoe Casas and Carsyn Gordon reached on singles and both came in to score on a two-RBI triple by Cali Harrod. Morgan Klaevemann followed with an RBI bunt single to make it 3-0.

After Klaevemann’s 31st stolen base of the season, Ellie Cooper drilled a liner back up the middle, nearly hitting Klaevemann as she needed to dive out of the way of the batted ball. The speedy sophomore got back up and still scored on the RBI single for a 4-0 lead.

Boston College got a run back in the bottom of the second on a solo home run from Annie Murphy off FSU starter Jessica Burroughs.

The Noles added two more runs in the fourth inning, also with two outs, as Cooper hit her third home run of the season to left, scoring Harrod who had reached earlier in the inning on a base hit to center.

Burroughs continued with a strong start in the circle, retiring 13 of the first 14 batters before allowing a double to Chloe Sharabba down the left field line in the fifth inning. BC cut the lead to 6-2 later in the inning on an RBI single to right field by Carly Severini.

Florida State scored four runs in the top of the sixth to establish an eight-run advantage. Klaevemann started with a single up the middle, stole second and Cooper followed with a walk. Jessica Warren hit her team-leading 40th RBI on a double to right to make it 7-2 FSU.

Macey Cheatham drew a walk to load the bases and a fielder’s choice on a grounder from Casas scored Alex Powers, increasing the FSU lead to 8-2. Gordon hit her second single of the game back up the middle, driving in two runs and giving the Seminoles a 10-2 lead.

It marked the second time in the game and 30th time this season that the Seminoles have scored four or more runs in an inning.

Abby Evans closed out the game in the circle for FSU, pitching a perfect sixth inning, along with a strikeout to secure the run-rule victory. Burroughs (19-2) earned the win after 5.0 innings of work, giving up two runs on three hits with zero walks and nine strikeouts.

FSU got out to hot start in game two, scoring two runs on three pitches after a leadoff bunt single from Klaevemann, a sac but from Cooper and a two-run home run by Powers. It was her ninth home run of the season.

The game turned into a defensive stalemate after that as neither team was able to score for the rest of the game. Boston College was able to get some runners on base in the early innings, but the Seminoles executed double plays in the second and third inning and Broderick threw out Loren DiEmmanuele trying to steal second base in the fourth inning.

The Noles only managed two runners from the second through the sixth inning on a double by Cooper in the third inning and a walk by Gordon in the fourth. Both would be left stranded as BC starting pitcher Allyson Frei settled in throughout the game.

The Eagles threatened in the bottom of the seventh, loading the bases with a pair of two-out singles and an FSU fielding error. The game ended on a groundout to second base to close out the 2-0 victory for FSU.

Meghan King moved to 14-2 with the complete-game victory, scattering six hits with zero walks and three strikeouts in her fourth shutout of the season.

Frei (11-10) allowed only three hits and two runs with five walks and three strikeouts in the loss.

No. 8 Seminoles Win Series at Boston College.
Florida State defeats Boston College, 10-2 in six innings and 2-0, to earn wins in both games of the doubleheader on April 16.

CHESTNUT HILL, MA – For the 30th consecutive time, FSU has earned the series victory over a conference opponent as No. 8 Florida State (33-4, 12-1 ACC) posted wins in both games of the doubleheader with Boston College (20-17, 4-7 ACC) on April 16. The Noles took game one, 10-2 in six innings, and closed out the day with a 2-0 shutout victory.

“We’re young and while I’m glad that we got the wins today, we need to make sure we stay focused and in it until the final out of the day,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “I thought we came out strong in game one and did a good job of staying on the attack, but in game two I thought we relaxed a bit. That sometimes happens at this point of the season and we were able to make plays when we needed to, but we’ll need to learn from this as we move toward the postseason.”

FSU got on the board first in game one, scoring four runs in the second inning, all with two outs. Zoe Casas and Carsyn Gordon reached on singles and both came in to score on a two-RBI triple by Cali Harrod. Morgan Klaevemann followed with an RBI bunt single to make it 3-0.

After Klaevemann’s 31st stolen base of the season, Ellie Cooper drilled a liner back up the middle, nearly hitting Klaevemann as she needed to dive out of the way of the batted ball. The speedy sophomore got back up and still scored on the RBI single for a 4-0 lead.

Boston College got a run back in the bottom of the second on a solo home run from Annie Murphy off FSU starter Jessica Burroughs.

The Noles added two more runs in the fourth inning, also with two outs, as Cooper hit her third home run of the season to left, scoring Harrod who had reached earlier in the inning on a base hit to center.

Burroughs continued with a strong start in the circle, retiring 13 of the first 14 batters before allowing a double to Chloe Sharabba down the left field line in the fifth inning. BC cut the lead to 6-2 later in the inning on an RBI single to right field by Carly Severini.

Florida State scored four runs in the top of the sixth to establish an eight-run advantage. Klaevemann started with a single up the middle, stole second and Cooper followed with a walk. Jessica Warren hit her team-leading 40th RBI on a double to right to make it 7-2 FSU.

Macey Cheatham drew a walk to load the bases and a fielder’s choice on a grounder from Casas scored Alex Powers, increasing the FSU lead to 8-2. Gordon hit her second single of the game back up the middle, driving in two runs and giving the Seminoles a 10-2 lead.

It marked the second time in the game and 30th time this season that the Seminoles have scored four or more runs in an inning.

Abby Evans closed out the game in the circle for FSU, pitching a perfect sixth inning, along with a strikeout to secure the run-rule victory. Burroughs (19-2) earned the win after 5.0 innings of work, giving up two runs on three hits with zero walks and nine strikeouts.

FSU got out to hot start in game two, scoring two runs on three pitches after a leadoff bunt single from Klaevemann, a sac but from Cooper and a two-run home run by Powers. It was her ninth home run of the season.

The game turned into a defensive stalemate after that as neither team was able to score for the rest of the game. Boston College was able to get some runners on base in the early innings, but the Seminoles executed double plays in the second and third inning and Broderick threw out Loren DiEmmanuele trying to steal second base in the fourth inning.

The Noles only managed two runners from the second through the sixth inning on a double by Cooper in the third inning and a walk by Gordon in the fourth. Both would be left stranded as BC starting pitcher Allyson Frei settled in throughout the game.

The Eagles threatened in the bottom of the seventh, loading the bases with a pair of two-out singles and an FSU fielding error. The game ended on a groundout to second base to close out the 2-0 victory for FSU.

Meghan King moved to 14-2 with the complete-game victory, scattering six hits with zero walks and three strikeouts in her fourth shutout of the season.

Frei (11-10) allowed only three hits and two runs with five walks and three strikeouts in the loss.

FLORIDA STATE 9, BOSTON COLLEGE 6

Florida State Sweeps Boston College.
Redshirt junior pitcher Jessica Burroughs earns her 20th win of the season as the Seminoles post a 9-6 victory over Boston College on Sunday afternoon.

CHESTNUT HILL, MA - Earning a sweep of a conference opponent for the fourth time this season, No. 8 Florida State (34-4, 13-1 ACC) came from behind to defeat Boston College (21-18, 4-8 ACC) by a score of 9-6 on Sunday afternoon at Shea Field.

"Great fight and focus out of everyone to not get down when we gave up those early runs," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Jessica did a great job to pick Meghan up in the circle and allowed us to get back in the game. Our offense stuck with the process and worked some quality at bats as we came back to tie and take the lead. Overall, it was a quality road trip and we had a lot of experiences we can build on."

Florida State took a quick 2-0 lead in the top of the first as Morgan Klaevemann led off the game with a bunt single. It is the 24th time in her 34 games played that the sophomore has safely reached base as the leadoff hitter in FSU's first time at the plate.

Ellie Cooper added a bunt single of her own and Alex Powers drove in the first run of the game on a sacrifice fly to right field. Walks to Jessica Warren and Sydney Broderick, along with a wild pitch, put runners in scoring position. Zoe Casas made it 2-0 with an infield RBI single to the second baseman.

Boston College fought back to take the lead in the bottom of the first, stringing together three consecutive one-out hits, including an RBI double by Tatiana Cortez to cut the lead to 2-1. An RBI sacrifice bunt by Jordan Chimento tied the game and Carly Severini's RBI single to left gave the Eagles a 3-2 lead.

After another BC single, the Noles nearly got out of the inning, but an FSU throwing error allowed two more runners to score as Boston College held a 5-2 lead after the first inning.

The Noles got a run back in the third inning on an RBI double by Casas to score Warren who had walked for the second time in the game.

Jessica Burroughs entered the circle for Florida State for the third inning, relieving starter Meghan King. King exited the game after 2.0 innings, giving up five runs, three earned, on five hits with zero walks and one strikeout. Burroughs allowed a walk to start the inning, but retired the next three to end the scoreless inning.

FSU got back in front in the fourth inning, opening the inning with a bunt single by Alex Kossoff. Klaevemann followed with another bunt single and stole second for her second stolen base of the game and 35th of the season. The stolen base was also Florida State's 100th stolen base of the season.

Powers brought in two runs to tie the game at 5-5, driving a two-RBI single to left. Warren followed with her 10th home run of the season, giving the Noles a 7-5 lead after four innings.

Warren extended the FSU lead to 9-5 with another two-run home run in the top of the sixth, marking her fourth multi-HR game of her career and second of the season.

Burroughs pitched a stellar game in relief, earning the win to move to 20-2 on the season. She allowed only five batters to reach base in 5.0 innings of relief, recording six strikeouts and scattering two hits and three walks, allowing just one run on a sacrifice fly in the seventh.

No. 8 Noles Earn Top-Five Win In DH Split At No. 3 Auburn.
Florida State takes a 4-3 win in game two of Wednesday's doubleheader on the road at Auburn after falling 9-6 in game one.

AUBURN, AL - Picking up the highest-ranked win at Florida State under head coach Lonni Alameda, No. 8/7 Florida State (35-5) earned a doubleheader split on the road at No. 3/2 Auburn (42-5) on Wednesday night. Auburn won game one by a score of 9-6, scoring all nine runs with two outs. The Noles defeated the Tigers in game two, 4-3, as all four RBI were driven in by freshmen, as well as three of the four runs scored.

"Extremely excited about the entire team coming together tonight - it took everybody," said Alameda. "Auburn is a good squad and our hitters stuck to their game plans and put good swings on pitches. The bottom of the lineup came up big for us and there were a lot of big situations that we capitalized on.

"I think we learned a lot about ourselves as a team and grew in a bunch of ways today. King through a great game and all in all, I'm just really proud of the growth of the program and looking forward to Virginia Tech this weekend."

GAME ONE - Auburn 9, Florida State 6

Florida State got out to an early lead in game one, taking a 1-0 lead after a sacrifice fly by Jessica Warren. Morgan Klaevemann and Ellie Cooper opened the inning with bunt singles and a fielder's choice by Alex Powers put runners on the corners for Warren.

Auburn threatened in the bottom of the first, getting a pair of runners on with one out on walks by Tiffany Howard and Kasey Cooper. The Seminoles were able to get out of the inning on a double play as Cooper fielded a ground ball, flipped to Cali Harrod who fired to first to end the inning.

The Tigers got on the board in the second inning as a two-out, two-RBI single by Howard gave Auburn a 2-1 lead. Later in the inning a two-RBI single by Cooper gave the Tigers a 4-1 lead, but the inning ended on the play as Emily Carosone tried to take third on Klaevemann's throw to the plate and Sydney Broderick tossed to Warren for the third out.

FSU tied the game at 4-4 in top of the third, highlighted by RBI singles by Broderick and Zoe Casas. Klaevemann started the inning with a walk and came into score on a single to left by Cooper that was misplayed by Auburn's Howard.

The Noles went up 5-4 in the fourth on another single by Cooper and another Auburn fielding error. After a single and stolen base by Harrod and a walk to Klaevemann, Cooper dropped a bunt single to the pitcher and the throw to first was wild, allowing Harrod to score from second.

Auburn went back in front on a three-run home run by Carosone in the bottom of the fourth, as Courtney Shea and Victoria Draper walked earlier in the inning.

The Tigers brought in two more runs in the bottom of the sixth, both on FSU fielding errors with two outs to extend their lead to 9-5.

Florida State got a run back in the top of the seventh on a solo home run from Warren on a 14-pitch at bat to make it 9-6, but the Noles were unable to bring in any additional runs against Auburn's Rachael Walters. Walters entered the game in the third inning to relieve starter Kaylee Carlson, who allowed four runs on six hits in 2.1 innings.

Walters closed out the game for the Tigers and moved to 8-2 on the year, giving up two runs on three hits in 4.2 innings, with three walks and six strikeouts.

FSU's Jessica Burroughs (20-3) took the loss, giving up nine runs, seven earned on six hits with seven walks and three strikeouts.

GAME TWO - Florida State 4, Auburn 3

Auburn took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first of game two, single-handedly off the bat and feet of Carosone. The AU second baseman hit a one-out double to left field and then during the next at bat, made a delayed steal of third and scored as the throw to third base was in the dirt and bounced away from Warren.

The Seminoles tied the game in the top of the third behind some nice situational hitting as Harrod opened the inning with a single up the middle. After a stolen base, Harrod moved to third on a bunt single on a 1-2 count by Alex Kossoff. Carsyn Gordon drove in her 29th run of the season on a fielder's choice to tie the game at 1-1.

FSU took a 2-1 lead in the top of the fifth, using nearly identical situations as its scoring opportunity in the third. Harrod got things started with a single and Kossoff followed with a bunt single that refused to go foul, spinning on the chalk down the third base line. Gordon followed with her second RBI of the game, driving a single through the right side to score Harrod and give the Noles a 2-1 lead.

Auburn almost tied the game in the bottom of the fifth, loading the bases on singles by Whitney Jordan and Carosone, as well as a walk to Cooper. FSU starter Meghan King got out of the inning with a three-pitch strikeout of Jade Rhodes.

The Noles added to their lead in the sixth inning as Casas hit her second home run of the season, a two-run shot to left center to extend FSU's lead to 4-1. Bella D'Errico scored on the play, pinch-running for Broderick after she drew a two-out walk.

Auburn cut the Seminole lead to 4-3 in the bottom of the sixth on a two-run home run by Madi Gipson.

After a scoreless seventh for FSU, the Tigers got the leadoff runner on second after a single to left and an FSU fielding error. King got the next three batters to fly out to secure the ranked road win. King (15-2) scattered seven hits over 7.0 innings, giving up three runs, two earned with three walks and three strikeouts.

No. 8 Noles Earn Top-Five Win In DH Split At No. 3 Auburn.
Florida State takes a 4-3 win in game two of Wednesday's doubleheader on the road at Auburn after falling 9-6 in game one.

AUBURN, AL - Picking up the highest-ranked win at Florida State under head coach Lonni Alameda, No. 8/7 Florida State (35-5) earned a doubleheader split on the road at No. 3/2 Auburn (42-5) on Wednesday night. Auburn won game one by a score of 9-6, scoring all nine runs with two outs. The Noles defeated the Tigers in game two, 4-3, as all four RBI were driven in by freshmen, as well as three of the four runs scored.

"Extremely excited about the entire team coming together tonight - it took everybody," said Alameda. "Auburn is a good squad and our hitters stuck to their game plans and put good swings on pitches. The bottom of the lineup came up big for us and there were a lot of big situations that we capitalized on.

"I think we learned a lot about ourselves as a team and grew in a bunch of ways today. King through a great game and all in all, I'm just really proud of the growth of the program and looking forward to Virginia Tech this weekend."

GAME ONE - Auburn 9, Florida State 6

Florida State got out to an early lead in game one, taking a 1-0 lead after a sacrifice fly by Jessica Warren. Morgan Klaevemann and Ellie Cooper opened the inning with bunt singles and a fielder's choice by Alex Powers put runners on the corners for Warren.

Auburn threatened in the bottom of the first, getting a pair of runners on with one out on walks by Tiffany Howard and Kasey Cooper. The Seminoles were able to get out of the inning on a double play as Cooper fielded a ground ball, flipped to Cali Harrod who fired to first to end the inning.

The Tigers got on the board in the second inning as a two-out, two-RBI single by Howard gave Auburn a 2-1 lead. Later in the inning a two-RBI single by Cooper gave the Tigers a 4-1 lead, but the inning ended on the play as Emily Carosone tried to take third on Klaevemann's throw to the plate and Sydney Broderick tossed to Warren for the third out.

FSU tied the game at 4-4 in top of the third, highlighted by RBI singles by Broderick and Zoe Casas. Klaevemann started the inning with a walk and came into score on a single to left by Cooper that was misplayed by Auburn's Howard.

The Noles went up 5-4 in the fourth on another single by Cooper and another Auburn fielding error. After a single and stolen base by Harrod and a walk to Klaevemann, Cooper dropped a bunt single to the pitcher and the throw to first was wild, allowing Harrod to score from second.

Auburn went back in front on a three-run home run by Carosone in the bottom of the fourth, as Courtney Shea and Victoria Draper walked earlier in the inning.

The Tigers brought in two more runs in the bottom of the sixth, both on FSU fielding errors with two outs to extend their lead to 9-5.

Florida State got a run back in the top of the seventh on a solo home run from Warren on a 14-pitch at bat to make it 9-6, but the Noles were unable to bring in any additional runs against Auburn's Rachael Walters. Walters entered the game in the third inning to relieve starter Kaylee Carlson, who allowed four runs on six hits in 2.1 innings.

Walters closed out the game for the Tigers and moved to 8-2 on the year, giving up two runs on three hits in 4.2 innings, with three walks and six strikeouts.

FSU's Jessica Burroughs (20-3) took the loss, giving up nine runs, seven earned on six hits with seven walks and three strikeouts.

GAME TWO - Florida State 4, Auburn 3

Auburn took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first of game two, single-handedly off the bat and feet of Carosone. The AU second baseman hit a one-out double to left field and then during the next at bat, made a delayed steal of third and scored as the throw to third base was in the dirt and bounced away from Warren.

The Seminoles tied the game in the top of the third behind some nice situational hitting as Harrod opened the inning with a single up the middle. After a stolen base, Harrod moved to third on a bunt single on a 1-2 count by Alex Kossoff. Carsyn Gordon drove in her 29th run of the season on a fielder's choice to tie the game at 1-1.

FSU took a 2-1 lead in the top of the fifth, using nearly identical situations as its scoring opportunity in the third. Harrod got things started with a single and Kossoff followed with a bunt single that refused to go foul, spinning on the chalk down the third base line. Gordon followed with her second RBI of the game, driving a single through the right side to score Harrod and give the Noles a 2-1 lead.

Auburn almost tied the game in the bottom of the fifth, loading the bases on singles by Whitney Jordan and Carosone, as well as a walk to Cooper. FSU starter Meghan King got out of the inning with a three-pitch strikeout of Jade Rhodes.

The Noles added to their lead in the sixth inning as Casas hit her second home run of the season, a two-run shot to left center to extend FSU's lead to 4-1. Bella D'Errico scored on the play, pinch-running for Broderick after she drew a two-out walk.

Auburn cut the Seminole lead to 4-3 in the bottom of the sixth on a two-run home run by Madi Gipson.

After a scoreless seventh for FSU, the Tigers got the leadoff runner on second after a single to left and an FSU fielding error. King got the next three batters to fly out to secure the ranked road win. King (15-2) scattered seven hits over 7.0 innings, giving up three runs, two earned with three walks and three strikeouts.

Seminoles Take Two From Virginia Tech.
No. 8 Florida State has won eight consecutive ACC games and improves to 15-1 in conference play with a pair of wins over Virginia Tech on Saturday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Extending its ACC winning streak to eight games, No. 8 Florida State (37-5, 15-1 ACC) took both games of a doubleheader over Virginia Tech (24-26, 10-10 ACC) on Saturday afternoon to secure the regular season series win. The Noles blanked the Hokies, 2-0, in game one as Ellie Cooper tied a career high with three hits. Solo home runs from Cali Harrod and Carsyn Gordon carried the Seminole offense in game two, defeating VT, 3-1.

"We knew these were going to be some hard-fought games and Virginia Tech is a very scrappy team," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "(Virginia Tech's) Maggie Tyler was everything we thought she would be - she spins the ball well and keeps you off balance. Coming out with two wins is good and scoring some late runs is awesome and helps us in the circle. I thought Jessica Burroughs and Meghan threw really well today and the defense played good behind them. Now it is about adjustments and coming out tomorrow with a good process and game plan and put together a solid seven innings."

GAME ONE - Florida State 2, Virginia Tech 0

The Noles took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning after a leadoff walk and stolen base by Morgan Klaevemann, along with a bunt single from Cooper put runners on the corners. An RBI groundout to third by Jessica Warren allowed Klaevemann to score and gave the Noles a 1-0 lead.

Virginia Tech's Maggie Tyler kept the Seminole bats quiet until the sixth inning, when Cooper led off with her third base hit of the game on a single to right. A single from Sydney Broderick and an RBI single from Zoe Casas pushed the FSU lead to 2-0.

Jessica Burroughs earned a complete game win in the circle for Florida State, moving to 21-3 on the season. After allowing walks to the first two batters of the game, Burroughs retired the next 10 batters she faced until the Hokies managed their first hit of the game in the fourth inning.

Virginia Tech loaded the bases with one out in the sixth inning after a walk by Breanna Davenport, a single by Olivia Lattin and an intentional walk to Lauren Duff. Burroughs struck out the next batter she faced and got out of the inning after a pop out to Alex Powers at first base.

Burroughs closed out the game and allowed just two hits over 7.0 shutout innings, giving up four walks and posting nine strikeouts.

Tyler (18-16) took the loss for VT, giving up five hits, two runs and three walks with two strikeouts in 6.0 innings.

GAME TWO - Florida State 3, Virginia Tech 1

Just like game one, the Seminoles took a 1-0 lead after the first inning. Klaevemann drew her 31st walk of the season and was replaced on the base paths by Cooper after a fielder's choice. Warren followed with a single and Powers drove in her 41st RBI of the year on a single up the middle.

Back-to-back solo home runs by Harrod and Gordon in the bottom of the fourth extended the Seminole lead to 3-0.

The Hokies got their first base hit of the game in the fifth inning on a ball that hit the third base bag on its way down the line. FSU starter Meghan King had retired 14 of the first 16 batters prior to the infield single, with Virginia Tech getting on base via an FSU throwing error in the first and a walk by Duff in the fourth.

A leadoff home run by VT's Duff in the top of the seventh cut the lead to 3-1, and the Hokies had the tying run at the plate after a single by Kelsey Mericka. A double play by Harrod, Cooper and Powers ended the game and secured the win for the Seminoles.

King (16-2) gave up three hits and one run in the complete-game victory, allowing one walk and recording one strikeout.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Extending its ACC winning streak to eight games, No. 8 Florida State (37-5, 15-1 ACC) took both games of a doubleheader over Virginia Tech (24-26, 10-10 ACC) on Saturday afternoon to secure the regular season series win.

No. 8 FSU Cruises To 13-1 Win In Sweep Of Virginia Tech.
The Seminoles scored nine runs in the first inning and closed out the three-game sweep of Virginia Tech with a 13-1 win in five innings on Sunday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Earning a sweep of an ACC opponent for the seventh time in its last eight conference series, No. 8 Florida State (38-5, 16-1 ACC) defeated Virginia Tech (24-27, 10-11 ACC) by a score of 13-1 in five innings on Sunday afternoon on Military Appreciation Day at JoAnne Graf Field.

It is the 22nd time that Florida State has swept an ACC opponent in the last 31 regular season conference series. The Noles have won the regular season conference title in each of the last three seasons and have not lost an ACC series since 2012.

"Sundays are the mentally tough days as you deal with the muscle soreness and all that stuff, as well as the mental battle you have to have against a team you played twice before," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Very pleased with the way they came out and made adjustments today and jumped on a really good pitcher in Maggie Tyler. More impressed with staying in there and giving it all they had to end on a good Sunday."

The Noles got out to a 9-0 lead in the first inning, scoring three runs before recording an out as the first six batters of the inning reached base. Morgan Klaevemann led off with a walk and came in to score on Ellie Cooper's sacrifice bunt that was thrown wide of first by VT's starting pitcher Maggie Tyler.

A hit-by-pitch to Jessica Warren and a walk to Alex Powers loaded the bases and allowed Sydney Broderick to drive in two runs on a single through the right side. A walk to Zoe Casas and an infield RBI single by Carsyn Gordon extended the lead to 4-1.

Macey Cheatham nearly hit a grand slam to left, but it ended up as a sacrifice fly as it was caught at the wall by VT's Vanessa Gonzalez. Klaevemann walked for the second time in the inning to reload the bases and chase Tyler from the game after just two-thirds of an inning.

Cooper added another run after being hit by a pitch from reliever Chelsea Whitcomb and Warren closed out the inning with a bases-clearing single down the right field line, getting tagged out on the play after slipping and falling after rounding first base.

It marked the third time this season that the Noles have scored nine runs in an inning and the first time since a 10-run second inning against Stephen F. Austin on February 17.

Virginia Tech scored its only run of the game in the second inning after Kelsey Mericka led off with a walk against FSU starter Jessica Burroughs and came around to score on an RBI double by Vanessa Gonzalez.

Florida State had another explosive inning in the third, bringing eight batters to the plate and scoring four runs. Walks to Klaevemann and Cheatham, along with a wild pitch from VT's Whitcomb allowed Warren to drive in two runs on a two-out single to left center. Power followed with her 10th home run of the season, a two-run shot to centerfield to make it 13-1 FSU.

Burroughs exited the game to start the fourth inning as freshman pitcher Abby Evans worked the final two innings. Burroughs earned the run-rule victory and moved to 22-3 on the year, giving up just one hit and one run with two walks and three strikeouts in 3.0 innings.

Evans closed out the game in the circle for the Noles, scattering three hits in 2.0 innings with one walk and one strikeout. For the season, Evans has yet to allow a run in six relief appearances.

No. 7 Seminoles Take Down UCF, 7-1.
Florida State defeats UCF by a score of 7-1 on Tuesday evening at JoAnne Graf Field.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In a mid-week matchup of intrastate opponents, No. 7 Florida State (39-5) got the better of UCF (31-17) on Tuesday night as the Seminoles defeated the Knights, 7-1, at JoAnne Graf Field. Junior second baseman Ellie Cooper was 3-for-3 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored in the win.

"The offense's confidence in doing their job right now is amazing to see," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "And yes, there has been some good pitching performances in the circle. But you know with pitching, hitting and defense - you have to have it all. The way they are selling out in their at bats and making sure they execute what they need to for their team has been awesome."

The Noles used a five-run second inning to jump out to an early lead on the Knights. Walks by Zoe Casas and Morgan Klaevemann, along with a single by Cali Harrod loaded the bases with two outs for Cooper. Cooper hit the first grand slam of her career down the right field line to give Florida State a 4-0 lead.

Jessica Warren followed with a double to left and came in to score on an RBI single up the middle by Alex Powers.

UCF got a run back in the top of the fourth as Jessica Ujvari hit a two-out double off FSU starter Meghan King for the Knight's second hit of the game. Cassady Brewer brought her in on an RBI single to center to cut the lead to 5-1.

King allowed the first two UCF batters to reach base in the sixth on a walk by Linnea Goodman and a single by Brittany Solis, ending her outing in the circle. Jessica Burroughs entered the game in relief and struck out the first two batters she faced before allowing a walk to Brewer load the bases.

Burroughs ended the inning with another strikeout, sending down Samantha McCloskey to leave the bases loaded with Knights.

King (17-2) took the win and after scattering four hits in 5.0 innings, allowing just one run with one walk and two strikeouts.

Florida State extended the lead to 7-1 in the bottom of the sixth on a two-run home run by Warren, her 13th of the season. She drove in Cooper who reached earlier on an infield single.

Burroughs closed out the game, tossing a perfect seventh inning to earn her first save of the season and fifth of her career. The junior pitcher recorded four strikeouts in 2.0 shutout innings, giving up just one walk.

No. 7 Seminoles Extend ACC Winning Streak to 11 Games.
Florida State takes both games of Saturday's doubleheader at Pitt, 16-11 and 4-3, to improve to 18-1 in conference play this season.

PITTSBURGH, PA - Continuing its dominance of the Atlantic Coast Conference, No. 7 Florida State (41-5, 18-1 ACC) earned wins over Pitt (30-15, 7-9 ACC) in both games of the doubleheader at Vartabedian Field on April 30. The Noles outlasted the Panthers 16-11 in game one and took a 4-3 win in game two.

All nine hitters in the starting lineup of game one had at least one base hit and eight different players scored at least one run. Victoria Daddis' two-run home run highlighted the Seminole offense in game two as Meghan King recorded her 12th complete game of the season.

FSU has won 11 straight games in conference play and 80-9 in its last 89 regular season games against ACC opponents. The Noles have won the ACC regular season championship in each of the last three seasons and can add another title with a win on Sunday over Pitt.

"A lot of positives today, and a lot of things that we know we can work on," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Getting a pair of wins is great, but the way we finished each game leaves room for improvement. Proud of the team as a whole for battling, whether in the lineup, coming off the bench or whatever. We needed everyone today, and we'll need everyone tomorrow to close out the series."

GAME ONE - Florida State 16, Pitt 11

FSU exploded for six runs in the second inning, highlighted by a grand slam by Jessica Warren, her 14th home run of the season. Singles by Sydney Broderick and Carsyn Gordon, along with a walk by Cali Harrod loaded the bases early in the inning.

Victoria East opened the scoring with an RBI single to center, followed by a sacrifice fly from Morgan Klaevemann to make it 2-0 FSU. Warren capped the top of the second with a grand slam, giving her 58 RBI on the year and moving her into sole possession of second place on the FSU single-season record list.

It marked the 13th time in 2016 that the Seminoles scored at least six runs in an inning.

Pitt got a run back in the bottom of the second after a leadoff walk to Jenna Modic from FSU starter Jessica Burroughs. A single by Ashlee Sills and an FSU fielding error allowed Modic to score and cut the Seminole lead to 6-1 after two complete innings.

The Noles added another run in the third inning to extend the lead to 7-1 after Harrod reached on a fielder's choice, stole second base and came in to score on an RBI single to right field by Gordon.

The Panthers used the long ball to get back in the game in the third inning, scoring three runs on home runs by Jenna Modic and Giorgiana Zeremenko to make it a 7-4 game.

A three-run home run from Alex Powers, her 11th HR of the season, pushed the Noles back out to an 10-4 advantage in the fourth inning. Cooper and Warren scored on the play after hitting singles earlier in the inning.

Abby Evans entered to pitch in relief of Burroughs to start the Pitt fourth inning. The freshman tossed a perfect inning, retiring all three batters she faced.

The Noles added a run in the fifth on an RBI bunt single from Klaevemann. Harrod led off the inning with a walk, stole second and ended up on third after a Pitt throwing error.

Pitt got a sacrifice fly from Modic in the bottom of the fifth to cut the lead to 11-5, scoring Maggie Sevilla who reached on a double.

FSU brought in four runs in the sixth inning, including RBIs on three straight plate appearances from Broderick, Casas and Harrod. Broderick later scored on a passed ball to make it a 15-5 ballgame.

Pitt scored three runs, all with two outs, to stave off the run-rule ending of the game. Kathryn Duran hit an RBI double and Sevilla and McKayla Taylor added RBI singles in the inning for a 15-8 FSU lead.

FSU added a run in the top of the seventh as Lauren Harris led off with a walk, moved up to second on a single from Cooper and scored on an RBI single by Broderick. The single was Cooper's fourth base hit of the game, setting a career high.

The Panthers hit two home runs from the first three batters in the seventh inning to make it 16-11 and end Evans' day in the circle. Meghan King pitched the final 1.0 inning, retiring all three batters she faced to secure the victory.

Evans (1-0) earned her first career win, tossing 3.0 innings, giving up seven runs on nine hits with one walk and zero strikeouts. Burroughs worked 3.0 innings and allowed four hits, four runs with one walk and four strikeouts in the no decision.

GAME TWO - Florida State 4, Pitt 3

In stark contrast to the first game of the day, runs were at a premium in the second game of the doubleheader at Vartabedian Field.

The Noles managed just three hits through the first four innings, including two hits in the top of the first. Klaevemann led off the game with an infield single and nearly scored later in the inning on an infield single by Powers, but was thrown out at the plate to end the inning after Pitt failed to make a play at first. Victoria Daddis added a single for FSU in the top of the third.

Pitt managed only one base runner through the first four innings against FSU's King, posting a single to left by Erin Hershman in the second inning.

The Seminoles opened the scoring in the top of the fifth, highlighted by Daddis' first home run of the season. It was a two-run shot, scoring Gordon who had reached earlier in the inning on a Pitt fielding error.

The inning continued on a walk to Cooper and a single by Warren. Powers made it 3-0 FSU with an RBI single down the left field line.

The Noles added an unearned run in the sixth after loading the bases on a double by Harrod and walks by Gordon and Klaevemann. Cooper hit a ground ball that was misplayed by Pitt SS Taylor, allowing Gordon to score and extend the lead to 4-0.

The Panthers refused to give up the bottom of the seventh, getting a pair of runners on with two outs on infield singles by Sills and Hershman. Kaitlin Manuel was hit by a pitch to load the bases.

Duran drove in the first Pitt run of the game on an RBI walk to make it 4-1, and Shelby Pickett followed with a two-RBI single to right to cut the lead to 4-3, putting runners on the corners. King induced a groundout to second base to end the game and give the Noles the series victory.

King (18-2) recorded her 12th complete game of the season, tossing 7.0 innings and giving up three runs on five hits with two walks and five strikeouts.

Pitt's Modic took the loss and moved to 6-7, allowing four runs on seven hits with five walks and one strikeout in 7.0 innings.

Florida State Earns 2016 ACC Regular Season Championship!
The No. 7 Seminoles complete the sweep of Pitt with a 15-5 win on Sunday, securing FSU's 14th ACC regular season title.

PITTSBURGH, PA - For the fourth consecutive season, the Seminoles are the regular season champions of the Atlantic Coast Conference, as No. 7 Florida State (42-5, 19-1 ACC) completed the three-game sweep of Pitt (30-18, 7-12 ACC) with a 15-5 win on Sunday at Vartabedian Field. Seven different Seminoles scored a run, while Zoe Casas led the team with four RBI and Jessica Warren and Ellie Cooper added three RBIs apiece.

It is the 14th time that the Seminoles have earned the ACC regular season title, leading the conference. Florida State has now scored 375 runs on the season, sitting second in program history and trails only the 2014 team that scored 400 runs in 64 games on its way to the Women's College World Series.

"Extremely proud of the fight we had coming out today," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Coming off finals week, sometimes that can be mentally and emotionally draining, but the girls got it together and did a great job. We had some really good at bats and Meghan (King) stayed in there through some tough spots.

"One of our many goals is to win the ACC regular season and we're excited as a team to make that happen today."

Pitt took an early lead with a solo home run by Kaitlin Manuel in the bottom of the second off FSU starter Meghan King. Manuel's fly ball hit the top of the wall and bounced over to give the Panthers a 1-0 lead.

FSU batted around in the fourth, facing three different Pitt pitchers, and went in front 8-1. Alex Powers and Sydney Broderick started the inning with walks and Casas hit an RBI single up the middle to tie the game at 1-1 and chase Pitt starter Jenna Modic from the game.

Kayla Harris entered the circle for the Panthers and walked Carsyn Gordon to load the bases, but retired the next two Seminole hitters. A passed ball during the at-bat by Morgan Klaevemann allowed Broderick to score and give the Noles a 2-1 lead and Klaevemann would eventually walk to reload the bases.

Cooper drove a two-RBI single to left and Warren followed with an RBI single to right to make it 5-1 FSU, ending the day for Pitt's Harris. Sarah Dawson entered to pitch for the Panthers and FSU added to its lead as a Pitt fielding error off the bat of Powers allowed Cooper to score and make it 6-1 FSU.

Powers stole second and came into score, along with Warren, on a two-RBI single by Broderick to left field to wrap up the scoring in the inning. It marked the fifth time this season that the Noles have scored at least eight runs in an inning.

The Panthers scratched back two runs in the bottom of the fourth inning, opening the frame with three consecutive singles to cut the FSU lead to 8-2. After Manuel was hit by a pitch to load the bases, King got the first out of the inning for the Seminoles on a ground ball back to the circle.

Pitt made it 8-3 on a groundout to the shortstop when Warren elected to throw the batter out at first and concede the run. King capped off the inning with her fourth strikeout of the game.

A solo home run in the fifth inning by Pitt's McKayla Taylor to left field cut the FSU lead to 8-4.

Zoe Casas made it 11-4 FSU in the sixth with her third home run of the season, a three-run shot to drive in Broderick and Powers, who reached on a single and walk, respectively.

A four-run seventh closed out the scoring for the Seminoles. Klaevemann drew her 39th walk of the season and came into score on an RBI double to left center by Cooper. Warren blasted a two-run home run to deep center to extend the Seminole lead to 14-4. Powers added a solo home run of her own to make it 15-4.

Pitt managed a run in the bottom of the seventh on an RBI single by Erin Hershman, but King struck out Ashlee Sills to end the game and secure the 15-5 victory.

King (19-2) earned a complete game victory for the second consecutive day, setting a career high with eight strikeouts in 7.0 innings, allowing five runs on nine hits with only one walk.

Seminoles Drop Both Games Versus No. 1 Florida.
No. 5 Florida State falls to the Gators by a score of 7-1 on May 4 and 1-0 (12 inn) in a game that was halted on April 13 and completed on Wednesday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – A record crowd of 1,712 came to JoAnne Graf Field on Wednesday night to see a pair of games between two of the top five teams in the country. No. 5 Florida State (42-7) was defeated 7-1 by No. 1 Florida (49-4) in the first regularly scheduled game, before falling 1-0, in 12 innings, as the Noles and Gators completed a halted game from April 13.

“Definitely a unique situation, having the halted game and playing two games,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “(UF’s) Gourley pitched a really good game and had us off-balance quite a bit there in the first game. A few little base running things and we are right there in it, so I think there are a lot of good things we can take from it.

“JB pitched such a good game down there and it was her game to win or lose. She got out of that first inning, which was huge for us. They are the number one team in the country, and there is a reason why they’re the number one team. Any time you have a chance to play them, it makes you better. Today was huge for us and I’m really proud of the girls.”

Florida took a 3-0 lead in the third inning of game one as Kelsey Stewart led off the inning with a single to left. She ended up on third after stealing second base as well as an FSU throwing error and came into score on an RBI single by Kayli Kvistad. Janell Wheaton added a two-run double with two outs to make it 3-0 Gators.

Florida added a run in the fourth inning on a solo home run by Taylore Fuller.

UF’s Delanie Gourley held the Seminole offense in check through the first four innings, retiring the first 13 batters she faced. FSU got runners into scoring position in the fifth inning after a walk from Sydney Broderick, a fielding error off the bat of Zoe Casas and a wild pitch put runners at second and third with one out. Both would be left stranded after a fielder’s choice and a line out.

The Noles managed a pair of baserunners with one out in the sixth on a single from Morgan Klaevemann and a hit-by-pitch to Ellie Cooper. However, a line out and a strikeout kept FSU off the scoreboard.

FSU starter Meghan King retired UF in order in the fifth and sixth innings, and had the Gators down to their final out in the seventh before an RBI double from Nicole DeWitt made it 5-0 UF. A walk and a two-RBI double from Aubree Munro pushed the lead out to 7-0.

Casas got a run back for the Seminoles in the bottom of the seventh on a solo home run, her fourth of the season, but that would be all that Florida State could muster as the Noles fell 7-1.

King (19-3) allowed seven runs on nine hits with four walks and two strikeouts in the complete game.

UF’s Gourley improved to 17-3 with the win, surrendering two hits, one run with two walks and 10 strikeouts.

Rain Halts Extra-Inning Contest In Gainesville.
The game between No. 8 FSU and No. 1 Florida was suspended in the bottom of the ninth with the score tied at 0-0.

April 13, 2016

GAINESVILLE, FL - The only thing that seemed to be able to stop the Gators and the Seminoles on Wednesday night was the weather as No. 8 Florida State (31-4) and No. 1 Florida (38-3) battled through eight and a half scoreless innings before the game was halted due to rain. The game ended with one out in the bottom of the ninth and runners on second and third for Florida, and the game will be resumed prior to the FSU-UF game in Tallahassee on May 4.

"Tough way to end a quality game, but we can't control the weather," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "I thought we made some adjustments as they brought in each of their three pitchers and had some opportunities, but couldn't bring them in. Jessica had a great game in the circle and gave us exactly what we needed. Now we have the unique opportunity of waiting three weeks to finish this game."

Morgan Klaevemann started the game with a bunt single and Ellie Cooper followed with a bunt single of her own as the first two Seminoles reached base. They would both be stranded after a pop out by Alex Powers and a hard hit ball to right field by Jessica Warren that started an inning-ending double play.

FSU got multiple runners on again in the third inning as Klaevemann walked and Cooper was hit by a pitch, but the Noles were unable to push them across.

The Noles had runners on in each of the first six innings as Zoe Casas knocked a single to left in the second inning, while Sydney Broderick and Cooper walked in the fourth and fifth innings, respectively, and Warren was hit by a pitch in the sixth.

Jessica Burroughs got out to a dominant start against the nation's top team, retiring 16 of the first 17 batters she faced, allowing just a single in the second to Amanda Lorenz through the first 5.1 innings.

Florida threatened in the bottom of the sixth after Burroughs allowed a walk to Justine McLean, followed by a two-out single by Kirsti Merritt. A walk to Kayli Kvistad loaded the bases for the Gators, but the Noles got out of the jam after Burroughs induced a groundout to second base by Lorenz.

After a scoreless seventh, the game went to extra innings. FSU failed to get a base runner in the top half of the eighth, and UF nearly ended it in the bottom half of the inning as Aleshia Ocasio launched a ball to right field that was tracked down and caught at the wall by Carsyn Gordon.

That ended Burroughs' outing in the circle, bringing in redshirt freshman Meghan King. Burroughs ended with 7.1 innings pitched, surrendering two hits, two walks and recording six strikeouts in the no-decision.

King struck out the first batter she faced, and after allowing a two-out single to Kelsey Stewart, ended the eighth inning with another strikeout as rain began to fall at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium.

After the Seminoles went down in order in the ninth, Florida got its first two batters on with walks as the rain increased. After a passed ball to move the runners up to second and third, along with another strikeout from King, the umpires halted the game for the evening.

The game will resume with the same situation, just in a new location at JoAnne Graf Field on May 4, prior to the regularly scheduled game between the Noles and Gators.


Florida 1, Florida State 0 (12 innings)

May 4, 2016

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In the conclusion of the game that began in Gainesville on April 13, Florida came to the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning with runners on second and third with one out and the score tied at 0-0.

FSU’s King was in the circle for the Noles and issued an intentional walk to Munro to load the bases. Jessica Burroughs, the original starter in the game on April 13, re-entered the game to pitch in the circle. Burroughs got out of the jam and extended the game with strikeouts to Fuller and Aleshia Ocasio.

Ocasio pitched for the Gators and retired the first five batters she faced in the extra game before allowing a single to Alex Powers in the top of the 11th. A groundout to the pitcher left her stranded.

Burroughs allowed a leadoff walk to Amanda Lorenz in the bottom of the 11th, but she was retired at second on a steal attempt by a perfect strike from Broderick to Cali Harrod. Burroughs induced a pair of groundouts to short to send the game to the 12th inning.

Broderick led off the Seminole 12th inning with a walk and was replaced at first on a fielder’s choice by Casas, and Casas received the same fate on a fielder’s choice from Carsyn Gordon. In a hit and run situation with Lauren Harris at the plate, Gordon stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error from the UF catcher Munro.

Alex Kossoff pinch-hit for Harris in the middle of the at bat and nearly drove in Gordon with a slap in the air behind the circle. UF’s Ocasio made a nice leaping catch to snag the ball and end the inning.

Ocasio was the hero for the Gators in the bottom of the 12th, hitting the first pitch of her at bat down the right field line for a home run, giving Florida the 1-0 win.

Ocasio (14-1) tossed 7.0 innings of scoreless relief in the win, allowing just one hit and one walk with six strikeouts.

Burroughs took the loss after tossing a career-high 10.1 innings, giving up just three hits, one run with four walks and nine strikeouts.

No. 5 Florida State defeats Florida A&M by a score of 12-3 on Thursday night to close out its non-conference schedule.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Behind a dominating performance in the circle by Jessica Burroughs, No. 5 Florida State (43-7) ended its 2016 non-conference slate with a 12-3 win in five innings over Florida A&M (23-27) on Thursday night at JoAnne Graf Field. Burroughs tossed 4.0 innings without allowing a hit and recorded 10 strikeouts in the win.

"It was nice to come back out and be focused from the first pitch after the emotional high of playing Florida last night," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We made some adjustments and made them play some defense tonight and were able to put some runs on the board. Jessica had a great night in the circle and Abby battled back after giving up some base hits to close out the game on a good note. Overall, a good win tonight as we get ready for Louisville this weekend."

Burroughs retired the first four batters she faced before a pair of FAMU hitters reached base in the second on FSU fielding errors. The redshirt junior pitcher was able to get out of the inning after a pair of strikeouts.

After a perfect third inning in the circle, Burroughs recorded a rare four-strikeout inning in the fourth as Florida A&M's Raven Moseley led off the inning and swung through strike three, but the ball got away from catcher Macey Cheatham and Moseley beat the throw to first. Burroughs proceeded to get the next three outs on strikeouts to Miesha McBride, Amber Fullwood and Kenya Pereira.

Burroughs tossed 4.0 shutout innings without giving up a hit, allowing just one walk and recording 10 strikeouts in the win to improve to 23-4 on the season.

The Noles offense got out front in the first inning on a two-run home run from Alex Powers, scoring Ellie Cooper who reached on a walk. It was the redshirt junior's fourth career home run against the Rattlers and her 13th of the 2016 season.

Morgan Klaevemann led off the third inning with a bunt single and a stolen base. After Jessica Warren was hit by a pitch, Powers drove in another run with an RBI single up the middle. Warren took advantage of a poor throw to the plate and came in to score and make it 4-0 FSU.

The Seminoles scored eight runs in a wild fourth inning, recording just two hits as Florida A&M committed three errors, along with two wild pitches. Carsyn Gordon started the inning with an infield single and ended up on third after a stolen base and a FAMU throwing error. Victoria Daddis then walked and was pinch-run for by Korina Rosario.

On a pitch to Cali Harrod that the Florida A&M players thought was tipped foul, Gordon came in to score and Rosario went all the way to third, extending the FSU lead to 5-0. Harrod completed her at bat with an RBI single to the shortstop to score Rosario.

Harrod stole second and Klaevemann followed with a walk. Cooper hit into a fielder's choice, but the Rattlers were unable to get Klaevemann at second as Harrod scored on the play. Warren reached on a fielding error to score Klaevemann to push the lead to 8-0.

A wild pitch scored Cooper and a walk to Powers put runners on the corners with nobody out in the inning. Powers initiated a double steal and slid safely into second as Warren dashed home for a 10-0 lead.

The Noles tallied seven stolen bases in the game to bring their season total to 125. That ranks third-most in FSU single-season history, trailing only the teams from 1999 (147) and 1996 (160).

The inning continued and Macey Cheatham walked and Victoria East reached on a fielder's choice to the pitcher. Both of them would score off the bat of Rosario as her grounder went under the glove of FAMU 2B Jessica Nathan and all the way to the wall in right center to close out the scoring for the Seminoles at 12-0.

Freshman pitcher Abby Evans entered the game in relief of Burroughs in the fifth inning and gave up base hits to the first three hitters she faced. Nachelle Watson and Whitney Farris reached on singles and Florida A&M got on the scoreboard after a three-run home run to center from Nathan made it a 12-3 ballgame.

Evans settled in and retired the next two batters with a strikeout and closed out the game with a pop out to Powers at first base to secure Florida State's 18th run-rule victory of the season.

Florida State Earns 20th Conference Win In DH Split Of Louisville.
The No. 5 Seminoles have tallied at least 20 conference wins in each of the last three seasons.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Earning a doubleheader split with Louisville, the Seminoles secured their 20th conference win for the third straight season on Saturday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field. No. 5 Florida State (44-8, 20-2 ACC) fell to Louisville (34-13, 15-7 ACC) by a score of 4-0 in game one and posted a 9-0 victory in five innings in game two.

Florida State is the only school to record 20 ACC wins in a season and holds the all-time single-season conference wins mark with 24 from 2014. The Noles also registered 20 conference victories in 2015.

“I think we put a little more pressure on ourselves than we needed to in game one, but I think that’s a sign of a young team,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “Sometimes we need to be able to grow up, not only skill-wise, but emotionally and mentally. I think if anyone watched the two games, there was a completely different team that came out for game two. Those are lessons you have to learn as a program and I expect a different team tomorrow and we should be better pitch-by-pitch and every at bat.”

GAME ONE – Louisville 4, Florida State 0

The first game of the doubleheader started as a pitcher’s duel between FSU’s Jessica Burroughs and UofL’s Megan Hensley as only one baserunner for either team reached base through the first three innings.

Louisville got out in front in the fourth inning as Maryssa Becker led off the inning with a solo home run to left center. The Cardinals added a walk and three more singles in the inning, including a two-RBI single from Morgan Meyer to take a 3-0 lead.

The Cardinals brought in another run in the seventh inning on singles from Sidney Melton, Maryssa Becker and an RBI single by Hensley.

Louisville’s Hensley shut down Florida State’s offense, allowing only two baserunners for the entire game on a single by Sydney Broderick in the second inning and a double by Jessica Warren in the fourth inning. Hensley (15-4) did not allow a walk in 7.0 shutout innings and recorded one strikeout in the win.

Burroughs (23-5) gave up four runs on nine hits with one walk and five strikeouts in the loss.

GAME TWO – Florida State 9, Louisville 0 (Five Innings)

Louisville got its first two hitters on base in game two on singles by Jordan McNary and Becker, but both would be left stranded as Warren made an outstanding play to end the inning. With runners on second and third, UofL’s Nicole Pufahl chopped a ball into the circle that tipped off FSU starting pitcher Meghan King’s glove. Warren reacted and was able to grab the ball and still fire to first to save a run and end the inning.

Those would be the only baserunners that Louisville would manage in game two until a two-out single in the fifth inning by Meyer.

King (20-3) earned the run-rule victory, facing just 18 batters in 5.0 shutout innings. The redshirt freshman gave up three hits and zero walks with four strikeouts. King was efficient in the circle, tossing only 53 pitches on Saturday night with 42 for strikes.

The Seminole offense got on the board in the first inning, highlighted by a single from Ellie Cooper and a double by Warren. Alex Powers drove in Cooper for the first run of the game on an RBI groundout to second base to make it 1-0 FSU.

Morgan Klaevemann led off the third inning with a bunt single and immediately stole second base. It was her 42nd stolen base of the season, moving her into a tie for ninth place on the FSU single-season record list, alongside Serita Brooks (2000) and Brandi Stuart (2000).

Cooper added a bunt single of her own and Klaevemann scored on a Louisville throwing error. Warren followed with her 16th home run of the season, placing her in third place in a single season in FSU history.

The Noles closed out the game with a five-run fourth inning, as they brought eight batters to the plate. Carsyn Gordon started things off with a single down the left field line and Victoria East followed with a pinch-hit single. A Louisville fielding error off the bat of Cali Harrod allowed a run to score and make it 5-0 FSU.

East dashed home on a wild pitch from Louisville’s starting pitcher Becker to extend the lead to 6-0. Klaevemann added another bunt single and Cooper hit a triple to center to give the Noles an 8-0 advantage.

Warren drove in her third run of the game with an RBI groundout to second base for the final score of 9-0. Warren how has 64 RBI on the season, which leads the team and sits in second place in FSU single-season history.

The Seminoles Earn A 4-3 Win On Senior Day.
No. 5 Florida State defeated Louisville, 4-3, to close out the 2016 regular season.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Extending its ACC series unbeaten streak to 33 series, No. 5 Florida State (45-8, 21-2 ACC) recorded a 4-3 win over Louisville (34-14, 15-8 ACC) on Sunday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field to close out the 2016 regular season. The victory gave the Noles the season series win over the Cardinals and FSU is 29-0-4 in its last 33 conference series. The Seminoles have not lost an ACC series since 2012.

“Today’s game had a postseason feel to it,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “Louisville got out to a lead, we took it back, they got back out in front, we battled back and held on for the win. Louisville’s a solid team and this experience will be great for us moving forward, knowing we can fight until the final out.

“It was also great to celebrate our seniors and everything they’ve given to this program. I’m glad we still have more softball to play with them, but today was special to honor Alex, Macey and Victoria and their families.”

Louisville took an early 1-0 lead in the first inning as the Cardinals’ leadoff hitter Jordan McNary hit a ball into right center and defensive communication problems between FSU CF Morgan Klaevemann and RF Victoria East allowed the ball to fall and roll to the wall for a triple. McNary came in to score on an RBI fielder’s choice by Megan Hensley as the Noles were unable to retire McNary at the plate.

The Seminoles took the lead in the third inning as Klaevemann led off the inning with an infield single to the pitcher. Klaevemann immediately stole second base, her 43rd SB of the season to move into a tie for eighth place on the FSU single-season list with Tiffani Brown (2012).

A bunt single from Ellie Cooper and a throwing error from Louisville allowed Klaevemann to score and tie the game at 1-1. A sacrifice fly later in the inning by Alex Powers gave the Noles a 2-1 lead after three complete innings.

Three consecutive two-out hits tied the game for Louisville in the fourth inning. Jenna Jordan and Brittany Sims posted singles and an RBI double by Morgan Meyer scored Jordan to make it 2-2 UofL. Sims tried to also score on the play, but a throw from Jessica Warren in shallow left field retired her at the plate to end the inning.

Jessica Burroughs entered the game to pitch for Meghan King to start the fifth inning. King tossed 4.0 innings and gave up two runs on six hits with zero walks or strikeouts in the no-decision.

Louisville took the lead in the fifth inning behind a leadoff triple by Sidney Melton. She came in to score later in the inning on a two-out bloop single into shallow left center by Haley Smith for a 3-2 lead.

The Noles battled back to take a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the fifth. Warren and Powers each hit one-out singles and after a stolen base by Powers, both runners came in to score on a two-RBI single to center by Sydney Broderick.

Louisville threatened in the sixth inning, putting runners on the corners after singles by Sims and Meyer. Burroughs got out of the inning on a pop out to short to maintain the Seminole lead.

Burroughs pitched a scoreless seventh to secure the win, moving to 24-5 on the season. She pitched 3.0 innings of relief, scattering five hits and giving up just one run and one intentional walk. The redshirt junior added three strikeouts.

Louisville’s Becker took the loss, giving up four runs, three earned on seven hits in 4.1 innings. She also allowed two walks and posted four strikeouts. UofL’s Hensley pitched 1.2 innings of relief without surrendering a base hit or a run, walking two and striking out one.

Seminoles Run-Rule Pitt In ACC Quarterfinals.
No. 6 Florida State earns an 8-0 victory in six innings to open the 2016 ACC Championship.

RALEIGH, NC – Winning its seventh consecutive game in the ACC Championship, No. 6 Florida State (46-8) needed only six innings to advance to the next round, taking down Pitt (31-21) by a score of 8-0 on Thursday afternoon at Dail Stadium on the campus of NC State. Sydney Broderick went 3-for-4 with three runs scored and secured the victory with a three-run home run in the bottom of the sixth.

The top-seeded Seminoles move on to play the winner of No. 4-seed Boston College and No. 5-seed North Carolina in the ACC Semifinals.

“Another solid team win today,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “The bottom of our lineup really came through today with quality at bats to move runners, draw walks and score some runs. Meghan King pitched a great game and allowed the defense to work behind her. Now we look to tomorrow and take on our next opponent.”

FSU broke out to a 4-0 lead in the second inning as Broderick got the inning started with a single up the middle and back-to-back walks to Carsyn Gordon and Victoria Daddis loaded the bases. Cali Harrod gave the Noles a 1-0 lead with an RBI single through the left side, her 17th RBI of the season.

A bases-loaded walk to Klaevemann extended the lead to 2-0 and Korina Rosario entered the game to pinch-run for Daddis. Another run came in on a fielder’s choice by Ellie Cooper as the Panthers retired Rosario at the plate, but the attempt for a double play on Cooper at first went wide of the base and Harrod came around to score.

Jessica Warren made it 4-0 FSU with an RBI single to right field, extending her ACC-leading RBI total to 65.

FSU nearly added to its lead in the third inning with walks from Gordon and Rosario, as well as a double from Harrod, but the Noles were unable to bring across a run in the frame.

Florida State starting pitcher Meghan King retired 13 of the first 14 batters she faced allowing only one baserunner through the first 4.1 innings on a single from Giorgiana Zeremenko in the second inning.

Pitt threatened in the fifth inning as a double by Erin Hershman and walks to Ashlee Sills and Kaitlyn Manuel loaded the bases with one out. King battled back with a strikeout of Olivia Gray for the second out of the inning and got out of the jam on a pop out to first by Shelby Pickett to maintain the 4-0 FSU lead.

The Seminoles added a run in the bottom of the fifth on an RBI single by Gordon. Broderick hit a one-out single, stole second and came around to score on Gordon’s single up the middle.

The inning continued as Victoria East was hit by a pitch and Harrod walked to load the bases. Cooper nearly ended the game with a deep ball to right center, but it was caught at the warning track to end the inning.

Broderick closed out the game with a three-run home run to left center in the bottom of the sixth to secure the 8-0 victory. She drove in Powers and Alex Kossoff, who pinch ran for Zoe Casas, who had singled earlier in the inning.

King improved to 21-3 after the complete-game shutout. The redshirt freshman allowed just three hits and two walks and recorded three strikeouts for her sixth solo shutout of the season.

Florida State Defeats UNC To Advance To ACC Title Game.
Freshman Cali Harrod hits a double and a home run as the No. 6 Seminoles earned a 7-1 victory on Friday against the Tar Heels to reach the 2016 ACC Championship Game.

RALEIGH, NC – For the seventh time in eight seasons under head coach Lonni Alameda, the Seminoles will be competing for the ACC Championship after No. 6 Florida State (47-8) defeated North Carolina (31-23) by a score of 7-1 on Friday afternoon at Dail Stadium. The Noles improve to 14-3 all-time against the Tar Heels in the ACC Tournament.

“I am so proud of this team today and how well everything was clicking out there,” said Alameda. “We had some struggles, but trusted each other and the process and we were able to execute and keep UNC off the board. Cali had a big day and I was so excited for her as she’s been working so hard lately and it was great to see that show up in the game today. Meghan and JB gave us what we needed in the circle and put us in the position to go for the title tomorrow.”

After a slow start from both teams, UNC loaded the bases with nobody out in the second inning. Berlynne Delamora led off the inning with a single to left, followed by walks to Tracy Chandless and Lauren Fuller. FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs got out of the inning unscathed, recording consecutive strikeouts to Darby Rosen, Jill Ferraro and Elena Covert.

Burroughs pitched out of a jam in the third inning as the Tar Heels got runners on first and second with one out on a single from Taylor Wike and a walk to Kendra Lynch, but the redshirt junior pitcher kept them off the scoreboard with a groundout and a fly out to end the inning.

The FSU offense struggled against UNC pitcher Lynch until the third inning when Victoria Daddis and Cali Harrod led off the frame with a single and a double, respectively. A hit-by-pitch to Morgan Klaevemann loaded the bases for FSU and Ellie Cooper gave the Noles a 1-0 lead with a sacrifice fly to centerfield.

Jessica Warren made it 4-0 with her 17th home run of the season, driving in her 68th RBI of 2016 on a three-run home run to right field.

FSU’s Meghan King came in to pitch for the Noles for the UNC fourth inning, ending Burroughs’ day in the circle. Burroughs finished with 3.0 innings pitched and gave up three hits, zero runs with three walks and three strikeouts and did not factor into the decision.

King made an immediate impact in the circle, recording all three outs in the fourth inning with a strikeout.

North Carolina got on the scoreboard in the fifth inning behind a leadoff double by Wike, her third hit of the game. Wike came around to score on a two-out double down the right field line by Delamora to cut the lead to 4-1.

Harrod opened the FSU fifth with a solo home run to right center, her third of the season, to make it a 5-1 game. Klaevemann slapped a single to third base, stole second and moved up to third on a sacrifice bunt from Cooper. She came in to score on an RBI single up the middle by Warren.

Alex Powers added a single through the right side and ended up on second as Warren took third on the play. Zoe Casas extended the Seminole lead to 7-1 with a sacrifice fly to left, her team-leading sixth sacrifice fly of the season which is tied for the second-most in the NCAA.

King closed out the seventh inning to secure the victory and moved to 22-3 on the season. She pitched 4.0 innings in relief and gave up one run on three hits with one walk and seven strikeouts. The seven strikeouts is the second-most for King in her career.

THREE-PEAT! Florida State Wins 2016 ACC Championship.
The No. 6 Seminoles defeated Notre Dame, 7-3, to earn its third consecutive ACC Championship and 14th overall.

RALEIGH, NC – For the third consecutive season, the No. 6 Seminoles (48-8) are tournament champions of the Atlantic Coast Conference, defeating No. 20 Notre Dame (41-10) by a score of 7-3 on Saturday afternoon at Dail Stadium on the campus of NC State. FSU earned its 14th ACC tournament championship in the 25-year history of ACC Softball.

“Even though it is the same result, this is a different team,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “It is so exciting, especially with our freshman as Cali Harrod came through for us this weekend, which was big. We obviously have some big goals of where we want to be in Oklahoma City, and this is all a part of that process and that journey. Very proud of them and really excited for them to have the experience of winning a championship.”

Florida State got on the board in the first inning as Morgan Klaevemann led off with walk and immediately stole second on the first pitch to Ellie Cooper. Cooper moved Klaevemann to third on sacrifice bunt and Jessica Warren gave the Noles a 1-0 lead on an RBI single through the left side.

Warren stole second base and, after a walk to Sydney Broderick, both runners stole a base to move into scoring position, but would be left on base after a strikeout.

Notre Dame tied it up in the second inning on singles from Kimmy Sullivan and Casey Africano, as well as an RBI single to center from Bailey Bigler.

The Irish took the lead in the third inning on a solo home run from Micaela Arizmendi, her 10th home run of the season.

The Noles opened it up in the third inning on a solo home run by Cooper and a two-run home run by Alex Powers to make it 4-2 FSU, chasing ND starting pitcher Allie Rhodes from the game.

The Irish brought in Katie Beriont in relief and the sophomore pitcher gave up a solo home run to Zoe Casas to extend FSU’s lead to 5-2 after three innings.

It marked the 43rd time this season, and third time in the 2016 ACC Tournament, that the Seminoles had scored at least four runs in an inning. The home run derby continued as Notre Dame cut the FSU lead to 5-3 on a solo home run from Casey Africano.

FSU added two runs in the bottom of the fourth, sparked by a one-out double by Cali Harrod. Klaevemann hit an RBI single through the left side to make it a 6-3 ballgame. Walks to Cooper and Powers loaded the bases and an RBI base on balls to Broderick, her third walk of the game, extended the lead to 7-3.

The Noles showed off their speed in the fifth inning after Victoria East walked and stole second base as well as third base. Klaevemann also drew a walk later in the inning and swiped second base for FSU’s eighth SB of the game, setting a single-game high.

FSU’s Meghan King (23-3) closed out an impressive outing, retiring 11 of the last 12 batters she faced to earn the complete-game win. She pitched 7.0innings and gave up three runs and scattered seven hits without allowing a walk. The redshirt freshman tied a career high with eight strikeouts,matching her May 1 performance at Pitt.

Jessica Burroughs' No-Hit, 14 K Performance Carries FSU Over FAMU.
The redshirt junior pitcher recorded her third career no-hitter as No. 8-seed Florida State defeated Florida A&M, 1-0, on Friday in the opening round of the NCAA Tallahassee Regional.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Pitching ruled the day on a damp Friday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field, which transitioned into the evening as Florida State and Florida A&M endured a weather delay of over two and a half hours. When it was all said and done, both teams combined for just one run and one hit, each in the column for FSU as the No. 8-seed Seminoles (49-8) defeated Florida A&M (27-29) by a score of 1-0 on Friday in the opening round of the NCAA Tallahassee Regional.

Redshirt junior Jessica Burroughs recorded the third no-hitter of her career, and second of the season, allowing just two walks and registering 14 strikeouts in the complete-game victory.

"Always nice to get a win under your belt in game one," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "I think postseason always brings a little different mentality to some players sometimes, and we're definitely young. And it doesn't help that we got a little rain delayed. Hats off to FAMU, she (Kenya Pereira) threw a good game and now we're on to the next day."

The Noles plated the only run of the game in the first inning as Morgan Klaevemann reached on a FAMU throwing error and stole second to move into scoring position. A sacrifice bunt from Ellie Cooper allowed Jessica Warren to drive in her 71st RBI of the season with a sacrifice fly to right, giving FSU a 1-0 lead.

Jessica Burroughs dominated from the circle, retiring the first 16 batters she faced, recording 10 strikeouts through the first 5.1 innings. The Rattlers got their first baserunner of the game on a one-out walk in the sixth to Taylor Rosier. Another walk to Whitney Farris put runners on first and second, prompting a defensive change for Florida State, as Lauren Harris was brought in to play right field.

Harris immediately made an impact, making an impressive sliding catch in foul territory down the right field line for the second out of the inning as the FAMU runner tagged and ran to third.

The game would be delayed for two hours and 34 minutes as rain and lightning entered the area. When action resumed, FAMU's Farris stole second to move into scoring position, but Burroughs got out of the inning with a strikeout to end the threat.

Florida A&M's starting pitcher Kenya Pereira shut down the Seminole offense, allowing only five total base runners for the entire game. Pereira (14-16) allowed walks to Zoe Casas in the second inning, Sydney Broderick in the fourth and Carsyn Gordon in the fifth inning, and did not surrender a base hit until a one-out double by Warren in the sixth inning.

Burroughs closed out the game for the Seminoles, striking out all three batters she faced in the seventh inning to secure the win and the third no-hitter of her career. The redshirt junior improved to 25-5 on the season and matched her career high with 14 strikeouts, equaling her performance against Kentucky on February 8, 2015 and Florida A&M on April 1, 2015.

No. 7 Seminoles Advance To Championship Sunday With 4-0 Win.
Sophomore Jessica Warren hit two doubles as Florida State defeated South Carolina, 4-0, in the second round of the NCAA Tallahassee Regional.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Runs were at a premium again at JoAnne Graf Field on Saturday afternoon as No. 7-ranked (50-8) scored two runs each in the sixth and seventh innings to earn a 4-0 win over South Carolina (37-22) in the second round of the NCAA Tallahassee Regional. The Noles won their 50th game of the season on Saturday and eclipsed the 50-win mark for the second time in the last three seasons and the 17th time in program history.

The Seminoles moved on to Sunday’s regional championship game and are one victory away from their fourth consecutive trip to the NCAA Super Regionals. FSU has recorded three consecutive shutouts in NCAA Regional play and have outscored its opponents by a score of 27-4 in its last eight games of the NCAA Regional round, dating back to 2013.

“It was a hard-fought ballgame, and this time of year, that’s what it is about,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “I think (South Carolina’s) Nickie (Blue) threw a really good game. We had a really good game plan against her. And that’s regional play for you, and I’m really excited that we came out on the winning side of it. Kudos to them and we were a different team from last night to today. Really excited about the growth we made over a couple of hours.”

FSU’s Meghan King and South Carolina’s Nickie Blue began an impressive pitcher’s duel, limiting each offense through the early going.

The Seminoles got runners to third base in the first and third innings, but were unable to bring either of them in. Morgan Klaevemann led off the game with a single to left, stole second and moved up to third on a ground out, while Cali Harrod singled in the third, stole second and moved to third on an SC throwing error. Each would be left on base as the game remained tied at 0-0.

South Carolina threatened in the fourth inning, loading the bases on a one-out triple by Ansley Ard and a pair of two-outs walks to Kenzi Maguire and Jordan Bizzell. King got the Noles out of the jam by inducing a pop out by Taylor Williams to Alex Powers down the right field line.

FSU put a pair of runners on in the fifth inning on a one-out hit-by-pitch by Jasmine Palmer and a walk from Harrod. Both would be left stranded after a strikeout and a fly out.

The Gamecocks put runners on the corners with nobody out in the fifth inning on a pair of singles from Alaynie Page and Kennedy Clark. Jessica Burroughs entered the game in relief of King, and recorded a strikeout to her first batter.

SC’s Krystan White bunted a ball down the first base line that started foul and began to roll fair. As Powers started to field the ball, White collided with her and was ruled out for runner’s interference and the baserunners went back to their original positions. Burroughs capped off the inning with another strikeout to keep the game deadlocked at 0-0.

The Seminole offense finally broke through against Blue in the sixth inning as Warren led off the inning with a double to the wall in left. Sydney Broderick followed with a walk and both runners moved into scoring position as Zoe Casas flied out to center for the second out of the inning.

Freshman Carsyn Gordon gave the Noles a 2-0 lead, driving the first pitch of her at-bat back up the middle for a two-RBI single to give the Noles a 2-0 lead.

FSU added a pair of runs in the seventh inning on a trio of two-out doubles. Ellie Cooper roped an extra-base hit into the right field corner and Warren drove her in with a double to right field. Powers hit her 12th double of the season over the head of the South Carolina left fielder to push the FSU lead to 4-0.

Burroughs closed out the game with a scoreless seventh to improve to 26-5 on the season. The redshirt junior earned the win with 3.0 innings of relief, retiring nine of the 10 batters she faced, allowing just one hit with zero walks and three strikeouts.

King scattered five hits in her 4.0 inning start, allowing three walks and striking out one in the no-decision.

Blue (19-13) pitched 6.2 innings in the loss as SC’s Jessica Elliott faced just one batter in the seventh. Blue gave up four runs on eight hits with two walks and seven strikeouts in the loss.

FSU Reaches Super Regionals For Fourth Consecutive Season.
The No. 7 Seminoles defeated South Carolina, 2-1, to clinch the NCAA Tallahassee Regional.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Battling through all seven innings for the third consecutive day, the Seminoles scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to earn a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over South Carolina (38-23) to punch their ticket to the 2016 NCAA Super Regionals.

No. 7-ranked Florida State (51-8) has reached the Super Regional round of the NCAA Softball Championship five times in program history, including each of the last four seasons.

"We've been talking all season about pitch-by-pitch and staying in it and just having that really good mentality of fighting for your team, one through 24, for a full seven innings," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We've been in here talking about the maturity of our team this weekend and Meghan did an outstanding job of staying in it and obviously South Carolina had a game plan against her and she stuck with hers and that was a great sign from a freshman."

Jessica Warren continued to swing a hot bat, hitting her fourth double of the regional in the bottom of the first inning, driving a pitch into the gap in left center. She would be left stranded as South Carolina starting pitcher Nickie Blue got out of the inning with a groundout to second base.

South Carolina opened the scoring in the top of the fourth inning as Kaylea Snaer drove a pitch from Meghan King to the wall in left center for a leadoff double. Jordyn Augustus entered the game to pinch run and moved up to third on a wild pitch. Victoria Williams gave the Gamecocks a 1-0 lead on a sacrifice fly to left field.

The Gamecocks threatened in the fifth inning, getting runners on the corners with a pair of singles, but King left them both stranded after a fly out to center to keep the game at 1-0.

South Carolina made a pitching change in the fifth inning, bringing in Jessica Elliott in relief of Blue. Blue finished with 4.0 innings, allowing just one hit, zero runs with two walks and two strikeouts.

The Noles got on the board in the sixth inning as Morgan Klaevemann led off with a four-pitch walk. Ellie Cooper followed with an infield single that was chopped over the head of the SC third baseman.

Warren reached on a fielder's choice, retiring Cooper at second and putting runners on the corners for Alex Powers. Powers worked a 10-pitch at bat, driving the final offering into right field for an RBI single to tie the game at 1-1.

Sydney Broderick gave the Noles the lead with an RBI single to left center, scoring Warren to make it 2-1 Florida State.

King closed out the complete game in the circle, her 18th CG of the season, retiring all three batters she faced in the seventh. The redshirt freshman moved to 24-3 on the season and scattered six hits in the win. King allowed just one run with zero walks and recorded three strikeouts.

Elliott (18-10) took the loss after 2.0 innings of relief, giving up two runs on three hits with two walks and one strikeout.

"I can't say enough about AP's at bat," added Alameda. "But it is a full team effort and they all know that. We're really excited to move on to next weekend."

FLORIDA STATE 6, UTAH 2
05/27/2016, TALLAHASSEE, FL, NCAA Super Regional

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

One Step Closer: No. 7 FSU Downs No. 25 Utah, 6-2.
The Seminoles defeat the Utes, 6-2, is the first game of the NCAA Super Regional to be one win away from the 2016 Women’s College World Series.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Behind the glove and bat of freshman shortstop Cali Harrod, No. 7 Florida State (52-8) got one step closer to Oklahoma City with a 6-2 victory over No. 25 Utah (35-21) on Friday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field. Harrod went 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBI at the plate and made a run-saving catch in the sixth inning.

It is the first time the FSU has won the first game of a Super Regional as the Seminoles were 0-4 in their four previous postseason trips to the round of 16. The Noles came back from a 0-1 deficit to defeat Michigan in both games on the second day in 2014 to reach the WCWS.

“We’re really excited, it was a hard-fought game, especially there for a couple innings as it was a pitcher’s battle,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We got to the fourth and had to start squaring up some balls and we had faith in that process and JB was keeping us in there. An exciting game and ready to get after it tomorrow.”

Both offenses struggled against starting pitchers Jessica Burroughs of FSU and Katie Donovan of Utah as neither team was able to get a runner to second base until the fourth inning.

Utah’s Delilah Pacheco drew a one-out walk in the third inning, but she was sent back to the dugout on the first pitch to the next batter as FSU catcher Sydney Broderick retired her at second on a steal attempt. It was the seventh runner thrown out by Broderick on the season. Burroughs ended the inning with a strikeout, her fourth of the game.

The Noles opened the scoring in the fourth inning as Jessica Warren drove a one-out single up the middle. She moved into scoring position when Alex Powers hit her 13th double of the season down the left field line. Sydney Broderick followed with a sacrifice fly to left field to give the Noles a 1-0 lead.

The inning continued as Zoe Casas drew a walk and was pinch run for at first by Korina Rosario. Rosario stole second, her third stolen base of the season, to move into scoring position. Cali Harrod made it 2-0 FSU with an infield single to short, scoring Powers from third base.

Utah cut the lead to 2-1 in the top of the sixth on a one-out solo home run by Kay Kay Fronda, her fifth of the season. Burroughs issued a walk to Hannah Flippen and she moved up to second base on a wild pitch with two outs. Utah’s Kristen Stewart nearly tied the game on a single to left center, but FSU’s SS Harrod made a leaping snag to end inning.

The Noles added to their lead in the bottom of the sixth as Warren led off with a walk and the sophomore came around to score on Powers’ second double of the game. Broderick added a single through the right side and Harrod cleared the bases with her fourth home run of the season to give the Seminoles a 6-1 lead, chasing Donovan from the game. Utah’s Hailey Hilburn entered the circle and recorded two strikeouts to the only two batters she faced to end the inning.

Utah refused to give up without a fight, bringing seven batters to the plate in the seventh inning, as Hilburn opened the frame with a single to right. After a foul out and fly out, consecutive singles from Ally Dickman and Pacheco loaded the bases and ended Burroughs’ day in the circle.

Meghan King entered the game and gave up an RBI single to Fronda to make it a 6-2 game before getting Hannah Flippen to ground out to end the game.

Burroughs (27-5) allowed two runs on six hits in 6.2 innings, giving up just two walks and recording seven strikeouts. King earned the second save of her career, allowing one hit over 0.1 innings.

Donovan took the loss and moved to 20-11 on the season after surrendering six runs on nine hits in 5.2 innings, with three walks and two strikeouts.

“I think we’ve talked about all season how young we are and how we are going to grow up throughout the season,” added Alameda. “We are very proud of all of our freshmen. Cali’s had some tough shoes to fill at short, and she’s consistently been ‘watering the bamboo’ as we’ve talked about, just staying in there and chipping away at things to be that player for us. She’s really been great with that and those athletic skills were great to grab that ball and she’s got a bright future ahead for us.”

Back to OKC! FSU Earns Trip To The Women's College World Series!
The No. 7 Seminoles defeat No. 25 Utah, 3-0, to make their ninth trip to the WCWS in program history.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - For the ninth time in program history, the Florida State softball program will compete for a national championship in Oklahoma City as the No. 7 Seminoles (53-8) defeated No. 25 Utah (35-22) by a score of 3-0 on Saturday afternoon to earn a trip to the 2016 Women's College World Series.

The Noles will be one of the final eight teams in the NCAA postseason for the second time in the last three years, as FSU reached the WCWS in 2014. Florida State recorded its 20th shutout of the season and extended its winning streak to 10 games.

"I think we've talked about over and over again how young we are and how we're growing up through the game," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Our motto all season long has been 'Right Knee Down, RKD' and holding each other accountable. I think that's been something that has been really awesome, from our upperclassmen to our freshmen, but outstanding from our freshmen to be able to be mature enoug "We were very relaxed in a lot of big situations and we trusted the process. I couldn't be more proud of the people to my left and to my right that represent our entire team. It's taken 24 of us. So, very excited for our next step now and for this opportunity."

The Noles got a pair of runners on in each of the first two innings, but double plays in each frame by the Utah defense kept the game scoreless until the third inning.

In the FSU half of the third, Ellie Cooper chopped a two-out single over the head of Utah first baseman Bridget Castro to set the stage for Warren. The sophomore third baseman crushed a 3-0 pitch deep over the wall in right field for her 18th home run of the season, giving the Noles a 2-0 lead.

The Noles put multiple runners on again in the fourth inning on a walk by Cali Harrod and a single from Zoe Casas, but both would be left stranded after a pop out and a ground out.

Florida State showed they could also turn a double play as a leadoff single in the bottom of the fourth by Hannah Flippen was neutralized on a grounder to Warren and she tossed to Cooper who fired to Alex Powers at first for the Noles' 24th double play of the season.

Utah earned their third double play of the game in the fifth inning as FSU's Cooper hit her second base hit of the game with a one out single up the middle, but was doubled off as Warren's flare into shallow right was caught on a diving attempt by Utah RF Sammy Cordova to start the inning-ending double play.

The double plays at JoAnne Graf Field continued in the bottom of the fifth as Utah's Hailey Hilburn led off the inning with a single to right, but a line out to Warren at third by Castro doubled her off first base for FSU's second double play of the game.

The Seminoles added to their lead in the seventh inning as Korina Rosario led off with a single that tipped off the glove of a leaping Anissa Urtez at shortstop. Rosario stole second and moved up to third on an infield single from Alex Kossoff.

Sophomore Morgan Klaevemann stepped in and dropped a perfect RBI bunt single to score Rosario and extend the lead to 3-0. The Utah defense didn't allow the Noles to bring in any more runs as they turned their fourth double play of the game to end the inning.

FSU pitcher Meghan King closed out the game in the circle, opening the bottom of the seventh with a strikeout of Pac-12 Player of the Year Hannah Flippen. Urtez followed with an infield single to bring Kristen Stewart to the plate.

Fittingly, the game ended on a double play as a ground ball to Harrod was flipped to Cooper and on to Powers to end the game and send the Seminoles to the Women's College World Series.

King (25-3) needed only 72 pitches to earn the victory and her seventh complete-game shutout of the season. The redshirt freshman faced only two over the minimum in the 7.0-inning win and did not allow a Ute runner to advance beyond first base for the entire game. For the game, King scattered four hits with one walk and four strikeouts.

FSU Falls To Georgia In Game One At 2016 WCWS.
The No. 7 Seminoles commit seven errors in a 5-4 loss to No. 15 Georgia on Thursday afternoon at the 2016 Women’s College World Series.

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – In a game of 21 outs, it often hurts to give the opposition any extra outs by way of fielding and throwing errors. Committing a season-high seven errors on Thursday, No. 7 Florida State (53-9) was defeated, 5-4, by No. 15 Georgia (46-18) in game one of the 2016 Women’s College World Series as the Bulldogs scored an unearned run in the top of the seventh.

The loss moves FSU into the WCWS loser’s bracket and the Noles will play in an elimination game against either No. 5 Auburn or No. 14 UCLA on Saturday, June 4 at 12:00 p.m ET.

“Not the outcome we wanted, but definitely like we talked about, we're kind of a young program, and it's all about learning,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “I don't know the last time we've put errors like that up on the board but yet still have a chance in the sixth and seventh, so I think there's a lot of positive things we can pull from it. Now it's just really understanding the pitch-by-pitch process at the highest level. So I think that's the one challenge that's up for us right now.”

After a perfect top of the first in the circle from Jessica Burroughs, the Noles opened the scoring in the bottom of the first as Morgan Klaevemann led off with a single to left field. A sacrifice bunt from Ellie Cooper moved Klaevemann to second and the first pitch to Jessica Warren went over the wall in center for her 19th home run of the season, giving FSU a 2-0 lead.

It marked the 93rd run scored by Florida State in the first inning this season, the highest amount of runs scored in any inning this year.

Defensive miscues from the Seminoles allowed Georgia to tie the game at 2-2 in the top of the second inning. The first two Bulldog batters reached base on infield fielding errors and both moved into scoring position after a passed ball. Burroughs retired the next three batters, but the first two, Maeve McGuire and Katie Browne, each hit sacrifice flies to equalize the game.

Georgia got its first two batters on base in the third inning with a pair of infield singles, ending Burroughs’ day in the circle. Redshirt freshman Meghan King came in to pitch for the Noles and retired the first batter she faced on a pop out to the catcher. Back-to-back RBI singles up the middle from Alyssa DiCarlo and Tina Iosefa gave Georgia a 4-2 lead.

FSU’s King and UGA’s Chelsea Wilkinson settled in during the middle innings, not allowing a run for either team until the bottom of the sixth inning.

Georgia threatened in the top of the sixth inning as two more errors from Florida State allowed the first two batters of the inning reach base. King retired the next three batters on groundouts to end the inning and keep the game at 4-2 UGA.

The Seminoles tied the game in the bottom of the sixth as Warren led off with a four-pitch walk and Powers hit her 15th home run of the season to left to make it a 4-4 game. It marked the fourth time this season that Powers and Warren have hit a home run in the same game – vs. Hofstra (Feb. 12), at Notre Dame (April 3) and at Pitt (April 30).

Georgia scored an unearned run in the top of the seventh as Cortni Emanuel reached on FSU fielding error and moved to third on a stolen base and an FSU throwing error. An RBI groundout by DiCarlo gave Georgia a 5-4 lead as four of the five Georgia runs were unearned.

Wilkinson retired the Seminoles in order in the bottom of the seventh to secure the victory. She moved to 28-7 on the season, giving up four runs on six hits with two walks and one strikeout.

King took the loss for FSU, surrendering one unearned run, on four hits with one walk and five strikeouts over 5.0 innings of relief. Burroughs tossed the first 2.0 innings and gave up two hits, four runs, one earned with zero walks or strikeouts.

Seminoles Continue At 2016 WCWS With 8-4 Win Over UCLA.
No. 7 Florida State came back from a 4-0 deficit to advance in the loser's bracket on Saturday afternoon.

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - Facing elimination and a 4-0 deficit before recording an out, No. 7 Florida State (54-9) refused to give up and battled back, scoring eight unanswered runs to earn a 8-4 victory over No. 14 UCLA (40-16-1) on Saturday in the loser's bracket of the 2016 Women's College World Series. Alex Powers matched a career high with four hits - two singles, a double and a home run - and Morgan Klaevemann set a career mark with four runs batted in.

It is the first win for Florida State in the WCWS since a 2-0 victory over Washington on May 29, 2004. The Noles improve to 7-17 all-time in their nine appearances at the Women's College World Series.

"First of all, just want to congratulate UCLA on an amazing season," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "That's a pretty storied program and they're a class act, so I always enjoy playing a true competitor in UCLA.

"Very proud of our team today. Obviously, excited about the win, but I think as a coaching staff I'm more proud of the process that they took today, pitch by pitch. And to have come-from-behind rallies there is huge. That's just belief. And then we talked about, yesterday, the difference of us being able to come out and believe in our culture and the character of our program and it really showed today."

UCLA got out to an early 4-0 lead in the first inning, scoring all four runs before making its first out. A pair of infield singles by Allexis Bennett and Kylee Perez and a hit-by-pitch to Delaney Spaulding loaded the bases and Mysha Sataraka emptied them with a home run to centerfield.

The inning continued with two more singles from the Bruins and a two-out walk by Zoe Shaw reloaded the bases for UCLA and ended the day for FSU starting pitcher Meghan King. Jessica Burroughs entered the game and induced a fly out to center to end the threat.

The Seminoles battled back in the second inning as Powers hit the first pitch of her at-bat for a leadoff home run to right to cut the lead to 4-1. A single by Sydney Broderick, a walk to Cali Harrod and a UCLA fielding error off the bat of Carsyn Gordon loaded the bases with one out, prompting a pitching change from the Bruins.

Paige McDuffee entered the circle to replace starter Johanna Grauer and she induced a fielder's choice by Alex Kossoff to retire Broderick at the plate for the second out of the inning. Klaevemann followed with a walk to drive in her 16th RBI of the year and make it 4-2. That's all the Seminoles would be able to produce as UCLA's 2B Perez ended the inning with a diving catch.

Jessica Warren opened up the FSU third the exact same way that Powers did in the second, crushing the first pitch of her at bat for a solo home run, her 20th of the season, cutting the UCLA lead to 4-3.

A double from Powers and a single from Broderick put runners on the corners for Harrod with nobody out. The freshman shortstop placed a great bunt in front of the plate and Powers slid under the tag to tie the game at 4-4. Play continued as Broderick ran to third and Harrod toward second, and as UCLA threw down to retire Harrod in a run down, Broderick dashed home to give FSU a 5-4 lead.

UCLA made a pitching change to bring in Selina Ta'amilo, but after a walk to Zoe Casas and hitting Gordon with a pitch, Grauer re-entered to pitch the remainder of the game for the Bruins.

Florida State added to its lead in the fifth inning as Harrod opened the frame with a walk and stole second base for her 26th SB of the season. Gordon followed with a double over the head of UCLA CF Bennett, moving Harrod up to third base. Klaevemann brought them both in on a two-RBI single up the middle to give the Noles a 7-4 advantage.

Burroughs dominated in the circle for the Seminoles. She retired 13 batters in a row from the second inning until a one-out single in the sixth by Brianna Tautalafua. She would be left stranded after a pair of fly outs.

The Noles brought in another run in the seventh inning behind a leadoff walk from Gordon. The freshman stole second, and moved to third base on a groundout from Kossoff. Klaevemann placed a perfect bunt down the first base line to score Gordon and make it 8-4 FSU.

Burroughs closed out the game in the circle, tossing a perfect seventh inning. The redshirt junior moved to 28-5 after pitching 6.1 innings of shutout relief, scattering two hits with zero walks and two strikeouts.

Adding in her March 4 performance against UCLA earlier this season, Burroughs has given up just three hits to the Bruins in 13.0 shutout innings with one walk and seven strikeouts.

"I think the whole thing is that in any game me and Meg can both go at any time, and I knew if I came out it would be a big situation," said Burroughs. "But I just stayed calm and know that to get the job done, there's no need to come in and rush things. So take a breath, spin it, and let's get back in the dugout and just scratch out some runs.

"To be able to pick up Meg was huge, and she will do the same for me at any time. And just to let her know that she's got to learn from that really quickly, and we're going to need her the rest of the time. And the team did great fighting back in that game. The energy, we never gave up, and I think it was huge."

No. 7 Florida State defeated Michigan, 1-0, on Sunday to be one of the final four teams at the 2016 Women's College World Series.

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - After using the long ball in yesterday's win over UCLA, the Seminoles manufactured a run in the bottom of the third inning and Jessica Burroughs pitched a gem in a 1-0 shutout over No. 2 Michigan (52-7) on Sunday afternoon. No. 7 Florida State (55-9) triumphed again in an elimination game at the 2016 Women's College World Series and will compete in the semifinals later this evening against Auburn at 7:00 p.m. ET.

It is just the third time that Florida State has won two games at the WCWS, matching the performances from 1990 and 2002 when the Seminoles posted a 2-2 record in Oklahoma City.

The shutout of Michigan marked the third WCWS shutout in FSU history - 1-0 vs. Fresno State on May 23, 1990 and 2-0 against Washington on May 29, 2004. The Wolverines entered the game with the nation's No. 1 offense, averaging over eight runs per game.

"As for our program right now, the fight is just so, so awesome to see and the comfort level after our first game coming out and booting the ball around a little bit," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "The comfort level of going pitch-to-pitch and trusting the process of what we talked about all season. Jessica (Burroughs) had a great day today, and a lot of that comes from having a great catcher to stop a lot of those dropped balls and changeups for her to be able to throw that, so the confidence of them and trusting it to pitch it was amazing to see in big situations there. Really proud of them and really excited about our next opportunity this afternoon."

FSU's Cali Harrod opened the game in the top of the first with a diving catch in shallow left field as the freshman shortstop robbed a leadoff single from Sierra Lawrence. Seminole starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs completed a perfect first inning with two groundouts.

Morgan Klaevemann led off the FSU first inning with a walk and stole second on the first pitch to Jessica Warren, her 53rd stolen base of the season. Klaevemann would be left stranded after U-M starter Megan Betsa retired the next three batters to keep the game tied at 0-0.

Alex Kossoff opened the FSU third inning with an infield single, chopping the ball over the head of Michigan third baseman Lindsay Montemarano. Kossoff moved up to second on a passed ball and Klaevemann followed with her second walk of the game and 50th of the season to move into fifth place in FSU single-season history.

Warren reached on a fielder's choice, retiring Kossoff at third, and Alex Powers battled back from a 0-2 count to draw a walk and load the bases with two outs. The Noles took the lead as Betsa's pitch to Broderick was in the dirt and got away from U-M catcher Aidan Falk, allowing Klaevemann to score and make it 1-0 FSU. Broderick eventually walked to reload the bases, but a pop out to third ended the inning.

Burroughs kept the Wolverine hitters off balance, retiring 15 of the first 17 batters she faced, including 11 in a row after allowing a walk to Tera Blanco and a single to Falk in the second inning.

The Wolverines got a leadoff single in the sixth from Abby Ramirez and a Sierra Romero walk put U-M runners on first and second with one out. Burroughs and the Seminoles got out of the inning after a fly out and a ground out, maintaining FSU's 1-0 lead.

U-M's Falk added her second base hit of the game with one out in the top of the seventh, but Montemarano's bunt attempt was popped up and caught by Sydney Broderick behind the plate. Burroughs closed out the game by getting a pop out behind first base to secure the win.

Burroughs (29-5) scattered three hits in the complete-game shutout, allowing just two walks and recording six strikeouts to send the Seminoles to the 2016 WCWS semifinals.

"There's a little bit of pressure, but the whole big picture is it's my job out there to keep spinning it and get the defense in there to work on the offense," said Burroughs. "Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes the offense is on fire, sometimes it's not. But that's what I signed up for, and I want to be in that situation, and I think I was the most relaxed today than I have been in a while.

"The defense was playing amazing today, and then Syd back there was huge, just blocking that changeup and big catches out there, Cali Harrod's big catch, and the defense was on today, and sometimes it's either-or in a one-run ballgame and that's what the World Series is all about."

Betsa took the loss and moved to 28-5 on the year, allowing just one hit, one run with four walks and four strikeouts.

Florida State Ends Season At WCWS With Eight-Inning Defeat To Auburn.
The No. 7 Seminoles forced extras with a three-run seventh, but fell to the No. 5 Tigers, 8-7, in eight innings in the WCWS semifinals.

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - The five core values of Florida State softball - Family, Smart, Aggressive, Competitive and Committed - that has built the foundation for this season were all on display Sunday night as the No. 7 Seminoles (55-10) twice battled back from multi-run deficits against No. 5 Auburn (57-10) to force extra innings before falling to the Tigers, 8-7, in eight innings to end their run at the 2016 Women's College World Series.

"I don't think we could be more proud of the steps we've taken for Florida State softball," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "This is Team 33, and they've really taken the legacy a step further. We just talk about the process, and you couldn't be more proud of the fight they had from game one, how much we've learned, to today just leaving it all out there.

"The people to my right were outstanding in that, but I was a full team effort. Every single person in the dugout made a huge effort for this team to give everything they had. It's an L, but it's truly a win for us because we are a better program and we're going to move forward and be stronger."

Florida State got out to an early lead in the top of the first inning as Jessica Warren was hit by a pitch, her team-leading 22nd HBP of the season. Alex Powers knocked her 16th double of the season into the gap in left center to score Warren and give the Noles a 1-0 lead.

Auburn came back to take the lead in the bottom of the first as Tiffany Howard led off with an infield single. A walk to Emily Carosone allowed Carlee Wallace to give the Tigers a 3-1 lead with a three-run home run to center.

The Noles tied the game in the top of the second with Carsyn Gordon reaching on an Auburn fielding error to start the inning. She moved to second on a groundout and came in to score on an RBI triple by Morgan Klaevemann back up the middle that rolled all the way to the wall. Klaevemann came in to score a batter later as Warren hit an RBI single to right, tying the game at 3-3.

Auburn made a pitching change to start the third inning, bringing in Makayla Martin to replace starter Kaylee Carlson. Cali Harrod reached on a one-out walk and immediately stole second, ending up on third after a throwing error from AU's Wallace. Gordon gave the Noles the lead with an RBI single through the right side, scoring Harrod from third to make it 4-3 Florida State.

The Tigers led off the bottom of the third with a single and a walk, prompting a pitching change from FSU as Jessica Burroughs entered the game for Meghan King. Burroughs gave up a home run to the first batter she faced, Jade Rhodes, as Auburn regained the lead, 6-4.

Auburn added to its lead in the fourth inning as a solo home run by Kasey Cooper made it 7-4.

The Seminoles threatened in the sixth inning Gordon led off with a single to center and Zoe Casas added a single of her own that went off the glove of a leaping Carosone at second base. Auburn made a pitching change, entering Rachael Walters into the game for Martin.

Klaevemann nearly had an extra-base hit to left center, but was robbed on a diving catch by Auburn's Victoria Draper for the second out of the inning. A walk to Warren loaded the bases, but Powers' fly ball to center was caught to end the inning.

Meghan King re-entered to pitch in the bottom of the sixth, ending Burroughs' day in the circle. Burroughs tossed 3.0 innings of relief, giving up three hits and two runs without a walk or a strikeout.

Sydney Broderick opened the FSU seventh inning with a single to right field and Ellie Cooper followed with a walk. Harrod tied the game with her fifth home run of the season, a three-run shot to right center to tie the game at 7-7.

Gordon walked and moved up to second on a sacrifice bunt from Kossoff. Klaevemann extended the inning on an eight-pitch walk with two outs and an HBP to Warren, her second of the game, loaded the bases. A groundout to short ended the inning and forced the bottom of the seventh.

Auburn managed a baserunner in the bottom of the seventh on an FSU fielding error, but King retired the next two batters she faced to force extra frames.

In the FSU eighth, Carlson re-entered to pitch for Auburn and issued a walk to Broderick to open the inning. A sacrifice bunt from Cooper moved her up to second base, but Carlson ended the inning with a pair of strikeouts.

AU's Madi Gipson singled to left to start the bottom of the eighth and the ball got away from the FSU left fielder, allowing Gipson to run all the way to third. Gipson was pinch-run for Morgan Podany as Whitney Jordan stepped to the plate. Jordan grounded a ball to Warren at third and Podany sprinted toward home. Warren spun and threw home, but Podany was able to slide under the tag from Broderick, ending the game with an 8-7 Auburn victory, sending the Tigers to the WCWS Championship Series.

King (25-5) took the loss, pitching 4.0 innings and giving up six runs, five earned, on five hits with three walks and a strikeout.

AU's Carlson (19-2) earned the win with 3.0 innings pitched, four hits, three runs, one earned, along with one walk and five strikeouts.

Florida State concludes another impressive season under Alameda as they won the ACC regular season title for the fourth straight season, the ACC tournament championship for the third consecutive year, reached the NCAA Super Regional round for the fourth straight time, advanced to the Women's College World Series for the second time in three years and earned its first win the WCWS since 2004.

It is the 17th time that FSU has won 50 or more games in a season. The Noles set a school record with 459 runs scored and also finished with 155 stolen bases, which ranks second all-time in FSU history.

Individually, the Seminoles set an ACC record with six student-athletes on the All-ACC First Team, including ACC Player of the Year (Powers) and ACC Pitcher of the Year (Burroughs). Alameda was also named ACC Coach of the Year for the fourth season in a row.

King was named an NFCA National Player of the Week earlier this season after throwing a perfect game against Tulsa on March 12. After Tulsa won the American Athletic Conference tournament, King became the seventh pitcher since 2005 to record a perfect game against a team that would go on to win its conference title.

Powers (Second Team) and Burroughs (Third Team), along with Warren (Third Team) were also named NFCA All-Americans as it marked the sixth time in school history that FSU placed three student-athletes on the NFCA All-American teams.
