Four Seminoles Earn NFCA All-American Honors.

May 31, 2017

TALLAHASSEE, FL – After a season that saw the Seminoles earn their first No. 1 national ranking, their fourth consecutive ACC Championship and fifth-straight appearance in the NCAA Super Regionals, Florida State softball was honored with four NFCA All-American selections, as announced by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association on Wednesday.

Junior Jessie Warren and redshirt senior Jessica Burroughs were named to the First Team, junior Morgan Klaeveman earned a spot on the Second Team, while redshirt Alex Powers was selected to the Third Team. It is the second season in a row that the trio of Warren, Burroughs and Powers have earned All-American honors, while Klaevemann receives the national accolade for the first time in her career.

The Noles tied Arizona and Florida for the most honorees in the nation, and were one of six schools to have multiple First Team members. It is the first time in the fastpitch era of Florida State Softball that the Noles have had four NFCA All-Americans and FSU has had 12 total All-Americans in the nine seasons under head coach Lonni Alameda.

Klaevemann becomes just the second FSU Softball student-athlete, joining Brandi Stuart (2002), to be an athletic and academic All-American in the same season as the outfielder was recognized by CoSIDA earlier this month.

“I am really proud of this group of players, but their successes were all based on our entire team's success throughout the season,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “They would be the first to tell you that they wouldn't be able to drive in runs if players ahead in the lineup didn't get on base, or have quality pitches to hit if players behind them in the lineup weren't also dangerous. Pitchers wouldn't be confident if they couldn't depend on the defense behind them and they all build on each other. I'm excited to see them recognized for their work and how they've helped develop this program throughout their careers.”

All-Americans

Warren recorded an amazing junior season in 2017, leading the ACC in seven different categories, with 23 home runs, 68 RBI, 61 runs scored and a .922 slugging percentage, as she earned 2017 ACC Player of the Year honors. She ranked in the top 10 nationally in home runs, RBI and slugging and was one of 10 finalists for the 2017 USA Softball Collegiate Softball Player of the Year.

Burroughs wrapped up her career at Florida State with a 27-5 record and a 1.22 ERA, along with 266 strikeouts over 195.0 innings. Her four saves in 2017 and nine for her career tied the FSU records in both categories. She ranked in the top 15 in the country in ERA, hits allowed, strikeouts and wins. Burroughs earned ACC Pitcher of the Year honors for the second season in a row, continuing the streak to four consecutive years where a Seminole pitcher received the conference's top pitching honor.

Klaevemann provided the spark at the top of the Florida State lineup, posting a batting average of .410 with 68 hits, four doubles, two triples, 25 walks and 52 runs scored. She also led the team with 36 stolen bases on her way to receiving All-ACC First Team honors for the third year in a row.

Powers rounded out an impressive career in the Garnet and Gold, ranking second on the team with 68 hits, 54 runs scored, 10 home runs and 51 RBI. Her 19 doubles tied the FSU single-season record, allowing her to break the career mark in the category with 51. She finishes her time at FSU ranked in the top 10 in six career and six single-season categories.

Warren and Klaevemann will return to Florida State in 2018, marking the third time in the last four seasons that the Noles will bring back multiple All-Americans. Powers and Burroughs were both drafted by the USSSA Pride of the National Pro Fastpitch league and will be playing throughout the country this summer among some of the best softball players in the world.

Jessica Warren Lifts Noles To Pair Of Opening Day Wins.
The junior third baseman hit a home run in each game on Friday as FSU topped Lipscomb, 13-1 (5), and Furman, 5-1.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Opening the 2017 season on a strong note, No. 3 Florida State (2-0) notched two victories on the first day of the Unconquered Invitational, defeating Lipscomb (0-2) by a score of 13-1, in five innings, and earned a 5-1 victory over Furman (1-0) on Friday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field.

“It was a quality day all around,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “Most importantly we were finally able to get the season started, but the way that we played on the field was great, too. Our newcomers were able to get in both games and made some nice plays while our veterans picked up right where we left off last year. Two solid wins and we look forward to getting back out there tomorrow.”

Lipscomb got out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning with a solo home run by Peyton Ward. The Bisons managed another pair of runners on singles by Sarah Higgins and Caitlin Plocheck, but FSU catcher Sydney Broderick ended the inning by picking off Higgins at second base.

FSU took the lead in the bottom of the first, aided by struggles in the circle by LU starting pitcher McCarley Thomas. Morgan Klaevemann led off the inning with a four-pitch walk and immediately stole second on the first pitch to Jessica Warren, who later reached on a four-pitch walk of her own.

A strike was thrown on the first pitch to Alex Powers, but Thomas followed with a ball and then three consecutive illegal pitches which allowed Klaevemann and Warren to come around to score in the at bat, while Powers took first on a walk.

Lipscomb made a pitching change to bring in Plocheck, and the Noles quickly added to their lead as Sydney Broderick laced a triple into the right field corner to score Powers and make it a 3-1 game. Ellie Cooper added an RBI groundout and Cali Harrod hit a triple of her own as the Noles took a 4-1 lead into the second inning.

FSU exploded for nine runs in the third inning, highlighted by a grand slam by Warren. It was the 40th home run of her three-year career, as she sits second all-time in FSU history. The Noles registered eight hits in the inning, with Carsyn Gordon posting a single as well as an RBI triple in the frame.

Harrod added a two-RBI double and Zoe Casas drove in a pair on a single as Florida State plated enough runs to force the run rule, ending the game after five innings by a score of 13-1.

FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs settled in after giving up the run in the first, as the redshirt senior allowed just one base runner over the next three innings, issuing a walk to Ward in the third. She earned the win and moved to 1-0, striking out six batters over 4.0 innings with one run on three hits.

Freshman Cassidy Davis came in to close out the Lipscomb game in the circle and tossed a scoreless fifth and walked one as she faced just four batters.

Much like in the first game of the day, the Noles quickly got on the board against Furman with two runs in the first inning on a two-RBI triple by Gordon, scoring Powers and Broderick who reached on a fielder’s choice and walk, respectively. Gordon only had one triple over her entire freshman season in 2016 and surpassed that total in her first four at-bats of 2017.

Both teams struggled for scoring opportunities in the middle of the game as both pitchers – FSU’s Meghan King and Furman’s Lindsey Bert – limited the opposing offenses to just one hit each through the first five innings.

Warren pushed the FSU advantage to 3-0 with a leadoff solo home run to start the bottom of the sixth, followed by singles from Powers and Broderick. After a Gordon walk loaded the bases, Cooper lifted a sacrifice fly to center to make it 4-0.

Freshman Dani Morgan closed out the Seminole scoring with an RBI single back up the middle to drive in Gordon for a 5-0 lead.

Furman scored an unearned run in the seventh as the second batter of the inning reached on an FSU fielding error and eventually scored on a double to center by Kalie Hicks.

FSU’s King (1-0) earned the complete game win, striking out a career-high 10 batters and allowing just three hits and one unearned run, along with one walk.

Furman’s Bert (0-1) took the loss, giving up five runs on five hits with four walks and three strikeouts.

The explosive scoring bursts by the Noles just picked up where they left off in 2016, as FSU had multiple runs in each scoring inning and tallied single-inning run totals of two, three, four and nine runs on the day. In 2016, the Noles scored in 170 of their 402 times at the plate and drove in at least two runs in 118 of those innings, with three or more runs coming in to score on 71 different occasions.

Noles Take Two On Day Two Of Unconquered Invitational.
No. 3 FSU earns a pair of wins over Marshall (1-0) and Furman (9-1, 6 inn) on Saturday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Matching its output from Friday, No. 3 Florida State (4-0) earned two wins on Saturday, earning a 1-0 victory over Marshall (2-1) and defeating Furman (0-4) by a score of 9-1 in six innings to reach the championship game of the 2017 Unconquered Invitational. It is the first time since 2013 that the Noles have opened the season with four straight wins.

"Two different games today, but great to get two wins," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "In game one, we needed to focus on pitching and defense to find the win, and against Furman we found a lot of offense from the bottom of our lineup. Jessica (Burroughs) and Meghan (King) again pitched great to put us in positions to win and everyone is working for the team and being prepared to come through when called on."

The Thundering Herd threatened in the top of the first of game one as Elicia D'Orazio led off the game with a single and a pair of stolen bases put her on third base with one out in the inning. Seminole starting pitcher Meghan King recorded a strikeout and induced a slow roller back to the circle to end the inning.

For the third consecutive game to open the 2017 season, Florida State scored in the first inning to take an early lead as Jessica Warren launched her third home run of the young season over the wall in right center to give the Noles a 1-0 advantage.

Runs were hard to come by for both teams in the middle innings, despite Florida State and Marshall each having baserunners thrown out at the plate. Ellie Cooper reached base via a hit by pitch in the second and quickly stole second. On a two-out single to center by Dani Morgan, Cooper rounded third but was narrowly tagged out to end the inning.

In the Marshall half of the fourth, Taylor McCord singled and was replaced by Jordan Colliflower. On a two-out base hit to shallow right, FSU's Carsyn Gordon dove to try make the catch, but the ball bounced by her. Cooper tracked it down and fired home to Broderick who tagged Colliflower out to maintain the 1-0 FSU lead.

FSU's King allowed just three baserunners for Marshall from the second to the sixth inning, while from the second until the sixth inning, Marshall's Jordan Dixon had retired 13 Seminole batters in a row before giving up a double to Alex Powers.

Marshall's best scoring chance came in the seventh inning as the Thundering Herd loaded the bases with nobody out on two infield singles and a Seminole fielding error. The Florida State defense turned a 5-2-3 double play to bring up Marshall's last chance, but another infield single reloaded the bases. King got Marshall's D'Orazio to softly line out to shortstop to end the game.

King (2-0) tossed her second consecutive complete game of the season, scattering seven hits while giving up zero runs and zero walks with four strikeouts.

Marshall's Dixon (2-1) took her first loss of the season, giving up just one run on three hits in 6.0 innings with zero walks and four strikeouts.

The Seminoles ended the round-robin stage of the Unconquered Invitational with a 3-0 record and earned the No. 1 seed, creating a matchup with No. 4-seed Furman in the semifinals of the bracket stage of the tournament.

Florida State got out to a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the second as Cooper led off with an infield single to third base. The senior second baseman quickly stole second and advanced to third on a fly out to right. A walk to Cassidy Davis put runners on the corners and Morgan's sacrifice bunt drove in Cooper, while a muffed throw at first allowed Davis and Morgan to move to third and second, respectively.

Klaevemann chopped a single to the pitcher, but the throw home was unable to beat Davis to the plate. The Furman catcher failed to hold on to it and as Morgan rounded third, she was interfered with and awarded home to make it 3-0 FSU.

Warren lifted a sacrifice fly to right later in the inning, scoring Klaevemann, for her seventh RBI of the season to close out the FSU scoring.

Seminole starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs allowed just one baserunner through the first three innings and Furman got its first run of the game in the top of the fourth inning as Hannah Reynolds hit a solo home run to left.

Florida State abruptly ended the game in the sixth inning, bringing five batters to the plate and all five scored to give the Noles the 9-1 run-rule win.

Gordon got the inning started with a single to center to the pitcher and Cooper followed with a base hit to center for her third single of the game. Sophomore Cali Harrod crushed a home run to left to make it 7-1 Seminoles.

A pair of freshmen closed out the game at the plate for FSU as Davis hit her second single of the game and came in to score as Morgan hit the first home run of her career. The left fielder ended the game with a team-high three RBI and sits third on the team this year with four total runs batted in.

"I wasn't really looking to hit a home run, but just looking for a way to help my team and it went out," said Morgan. "I was really nervous yesterday playing in my first games here, but now that I have a few games and at-bats under my belt, I'm feeling a lot more comfortable."

Burroughs improved to 2-0 on the season with the three-hitter, giving up just one walk and one run over 6.0 innings with four strikeouts.

Furman's Bert (0-2) took the loss, surrendering eight hits and seven runs with five earned. She also gave up a walk with two strikeouts.

Noles Take Two On Day Two Of Unconquered Invitational.
No. 3 FSU earns a pair of wins over Marshall (1-0) and Furman (9-1, 6 inn) on Saturday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Matching its output from Friday, No. 3 Florida State (4-0) earned two wins on Saturday, earning a 1-0 victory over Marshall (2-1) and defeating Furman (0-4) by a score of 9-1 in six innings to reach the championship game of the 2017 Unconquered Invitational. It is the first time since 2013 that the Noles have opened the season with four straight wins.

"Two different games today, but great to get two wins," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "In game one, we needed to focus on pitching and defense to find the win, and against Furman we found a lot of offense from the bottom of our lineup. Jessica (Burroughs) and Meghan (King) again pitched great to put us in positions to win and everyone is working for the team and being prepared to come through when called on."

The Thundering Herd threatened in the top of the first of game one as Elicia D'Orazio led off the game with a single and a pair of stolen bases put her on third base with one out in the inning. Seminole starting pitcher Meghan King recorded a strikeout and induced a slow roller back to the circle to end the inning.

For the third consecutive game to open the 2017 season, Florida State scored in the first inning to take an early lead as Jessica Warren launched her third home run of the young season over the wall in right center to give the Noles a 1-0 advantage.

Runs were hard to come by for both teams in the middle innings, despite Florida State and Marshall each having baserunners thrown out at the plate. Ellie Cooper reached base via a hit by pitch in the second and quickly stole second. On a two-out single to center by Dani Morgan, Cooper rounded third but was narrowly tagged out to end the inning.

In the Marshall half of the fourth, Taylor McCord singled and was replaced by Jordan Colliflower. On a two-out base hit to shallow right, FSU's Carsyn Gordon dove to try make the catch, but the ball bounced by her. Cooper tracked it down and fired home to Broderick who tagged Colliflower out to maintain the 1-0 FSU lead.

FSU's King allowed just three baserunners for Marshall from the second to the sixth inning, while from the second until the sixth inning, Marshall's Jordan Dixon had retired 13 Seminole batters in a row before giving up a double to Alex Powers.

Marshall's best scoring chance came in the seventh inning as the Thundering Herd loaded the bases with nobody out on two infield singles and a Seminole fielding error. The Florida State defense turned a 5-2-3 double play to bring up Marshall's last chance, but another infield single reloaded the bases. King got Marshall's D'Orazio to softly line out to shortstop to end the game.

King (2-0) tossed her second consecutive complete game of the season, scattering seven hits while giving up zero runs and zero walks with four strikeouts.

Marshall's Dixon (2-1) took her first loss of the season, giving up just one run on three hits in 6.0 innings with zero walks and four strikeouts.

The Seminoles ended the round-robin stage of the Unconquered Invitational with a 3-0 record and earned the No. 1 seed, creating a matchup with No. 4-seed Furman in the semifinals of the bracket stage of the tournament.

Florida State got out to a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the second as Cooper led off with an infield single to third base. The senior second baseman quickly stole second and advanced to third on a fly out to right. A walk to Cassidy Davis put runners on the corners and Morgan's sacrifice bunt drove in Cooper, while a muffed throw at first allowed Davis and Morgan to move to third and second, respectively.

Klaevemann chopped a single to the pitcher, but the throw home was unable to beat Davis to the plate. The Furman catcher failed to hold on to it and as Morgan rounded third, she was interfered with and awarded home to make it 3-0 FSU.

Warren lifted a sacrifice fly to right later in the inning, scoring Klaevemann, for her seventh RBI of the season to close out the FSU scoring.

Seminole starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs allowed just one baserunner through the first three innings and Furman got its first run of the game in the top of the fourth inning as Hannah Reynolds hit a solo home run to left.

Florida State abruptly ended the game in the sixth inning, bringing five batters to the plate and all five scored to give the Noles the 9-1 run-rule win.

Gordon got the inning started with a single to center to the pitcher and Cooper followed with a base hit to center for her third single of the game. Sophomore Cali Harrod crushed a home run to left to make it 7-1 Seminoles.

Noles Shutout Marshall To Win Unconquered Invitational.
No. 3 FSU defeated Marshall, 7-0, on Sunday to become champions of the 2017 Unconquered Invitational.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Closing out the opening weekend with a victory, No. 3 Florida State (5-0) earned the championship of the 2017 Unconquered Invitational after a 7-0 win over Marshall (3-2) on Sunday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field.

Alex Powers and Cali Harrod led the Noles with three hits apiece, as Harrod finished a single short of the cycle after hitting a double, triple and a home run, as well as two RBIs.

"I am really excited about the adjustments that we made throughout the weekend after going through so many different situations," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We needed to see that we can be in tight games and make mistakes and be able to bounce back against quality teams like Marshall, Furman and Lipscomb.

"It is going to be a long season with a lot of ups and downs, but it was great to see so many players step up for their team. You may not have your best day, but you need to bring everything you have for when your teammate has their day, and vice versa. Glad to get these games under our belt and we are excited for FAMU this week and then the ACC/Big Ten Challenge this weekend."

Marshall put the pressure on from the first pitch as its leadoff batter, Elicia D'Orazio, reached on a Seminole error and advanced to third with one out after a sacrifice bunt and a single. Seminole starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs got out of the inning unscathed after a pop out and a ground out.

Florida State got a runner to third in the second and third innings on a triple by Harrod and singles by Klaevemann and Powers, respectively, but neither would be able to come into score as Marshall's Jordan Dixon escaped the threat each time.

Burroughs had a solid outing in the circle, giving up just two hits in 3.2 innings, without a walk and five strikeouts. She was replaced in the top of the fourth after a Seminole error allowed Marshall to get a runner to second base with two outs. Meghan King came on in relief and tossed three pitches, all strikes, to get the strikeout and end the inning.

In the FSU half of the fifth, Harrod's solo home run opened the scoring and gave the Noles a 1-0 lead.

FSU plated three runs in the fifth to break the game open at 4-0. Jessica Warren led off with a single and Powers followed with a double. Carsyn Gordon drove them both in on a single up the middle, and she later scored on Harrod's double to right center.

Another three-run inning for the Seminoles in the sixth inning was started by Dani Morgan after she was hit by a pitch. She moved to third on a ground out and a fly out, and following a walk to Powers, Zoe Casas hit an RBI infield single to make it 5-0 FSU.

Deja Bush entered to pinch run for Casas and after a walk to Gordon to load the bases, Ellie Cooper knocked a two-RBI single to center for the final tally of 7-0.

King (3-0) earned the win with 2.1 innings of relief, allowing just one hit and zero walks with two strikeouts. Sophomore Tessa Daniels pitched the seventh for the Noles, retiring all three batters she faced, recording one strikeout in her first appearance of the season.

Marshall's Dixon (3-2) took the loss after giving up four runs on nine hits over 5.0 innings, with two walks and six strikeouts. Kailee Williamson tossed 1.0 inning of relief and gave up three runs on two hits with two walks.

Cassidy Davis Shines In FSU Win Over Florida A&M.
The freshman tossed six shutout innings and added two hits from the plate in a 5-0 win on Wednesday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Behind an impressive hitting and pitching performance from freshman Cassidy Davis, No. 3 Florida State (6-0) earned a 5-0 win over Florida A&M (0-6) on Wednesday night at JoAnne Graf Field.

Davis (1-0) earned the first start of her career in the circle for the Noles and tossed 6.0 shutout innings, facing just one over the minimum after giving up two hits and one walk with six strikeouts. At the plate, the Valrico, Fla., native was a perfect 2-for-2, including a walk and an RBI double.

The six-game winning streak to open a season is tied for the eighth-longest in Florida State history, and the longest since the 2012 team opened the year with a 16-0 record.

"This time of the year is about getting in game situations and seeing how everyone can work in different positions so we can know what kind of team we have as we move through the season," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "I thought Cassidy was great for us today, both in the circle and at the plate. She's such a smart kid, both academically and athletically, and she's been stretched by not only having to learn to pitch at a high level, but also to hit, and she's doing a great job."

The Noles opened the scoring the second inning with a sacrifice fly from freshman Dani Morgan for her fifth RBI of the season. Ellie Cooper scored on the play after drawing a walk and moving to third after a single by Cali Harrod and a walk by Davis.

FSU scored two unearned runs in the third inning after Jessica Warren led off with a walk. The junior third baseman stole second and moved to third on a one-out groundout by Sydney Broderick. Carsyn Gordon reached on a FAMU throwing error, extending the inning and allowing Warren to make it 2-0 FSU.

After Gordon stole second base and moved to third on the second FAMU throwing error of the inning, she came into score on an RBI single by Cooper to give the Noles a 3-0 lead.

FSU added runs in the fifth and sixth behind an RBI single by Broderick and an RBI double by Davis, respectively.

Despite allowing three batters to reach base, Davis was helped out by fellow freshman Anna Shelnutt, as the FSU catcher retired a pair of FAMU runners attempting to steal second, once in the second inning and again in the sixth.

When FAMU's Taylor Rosier hit a single through the right side in the top of the fourth, it snapped a streak of 11.2 hitless innings for the Rattlers against Florida State, dating back to May 5, 2016. FSU's Abby Evans retired the final three batters of that regular season game and Jessica Burroughs tossed a no-hitter in the NCAA Regional game on May 20, before Davis' excellent start on Wednesday night.

Burroughs pitched the top of the seventh in relief of Davis, giving up one hit and recording a strikeout to end the game.

FLORIDA STATE 3, NORTHWESTERN 2
02/17/2017, TALLAHASSEE, FL, Big Ten/ACC Challenge

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Noles Walk-Off Wildcats To Open ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
No. 3 FSU came from behind to beat Northwestern, 3-2, on Friday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In a back and forth game that came down to the final at-bat, No. 3 Florida State (7-0) scored a run in the bottom of the seventh to defeat Northwestern (1-5) by a score of 3-2 on Friday night in its opening game of the 2017 ACC/Big Ten Softball Challenge.

Junior Morgan Klaevemann led off the FSU seventh inning with an infield single and moved to second on a stolen base. Senior captain Ellie Cooper put down a sacrifice bunt, but the throw from the Northwestern third baseman sailed into right field, allowing Klaevemann to score the winning run.

"That is a huge team win right there," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Ellie is so great with situational hitting and that is a big thing we focused on this week, so it was really cool to see it put into action tonight. A lot of kids had some really good at bats tonight, but you can't just get caught up in the results of whether or not you got a hit or drove in a run, but really trust the process in what you are trying to do. We had a lot of freshmen in big situations tonight and that is going to serve us down the line, as well."

The Noles got out in front in the first inning behind a solo home run by Jessica Warren, her fourth HR of the season, to give the Noles a 1-0 lead.

Northwestern took the lead in the third inning, scoring two unearned runs after the Seminoles committed a pair of errors in the frame and NU's Kenzie Ellis hit an RBI double to right field.

The Seminoles threatened in the fourth inning as Alex Powers led off with a double to left field. Cali Harrod reached on a NU throwing error and a four-pitch walk to pinch-hitter Zoe Casas loaded the bases with two outs. Freshman Dani Morgan drove a hard liner back up the middle, but it was caught by NU starting pitcher Nicole Bond to end the inning.

Northwestern got a pair of baserunners on with one out in the fifth, ending the day for King as Jessica Burroughs entered the circle in relief. The redshirt senior mowed down the next two hitters on a pair of strikeouts to end the inning.

King finished with 4.1 innings pitched, giving up two runs on six hits with two walks and five strikeouts.

The Seminoles tied the game in the fifth inning as Cooper drew her second walk of the game and moved up to second on a wild pitch. Warren posted her second extra-base hit of the day, driving an RBI double in the gap in left centerfield to tie the game at 2-2.

Burroughs (3-0) picked up the win with her solid relief appearance, allowing just three baserunners on two walks and a hit-by-pitch, keeping the Wildcats off the scoreboard to allow the Noles to complete the comeback. Five of the eight outs she recorded were strikeouts.

Ellis (0-3) took the loss and pitched the final 1.2 IP of the game for Northwestern, giving up an unearned run on two hits with two strikeouts, entering for Bond after Warren's game-tying double. Bond gave up four hits and two runs with four walks and three strikeouts in 4.1 innings on the night.

No. 3 FSU Shuts Out Northwestern And Nebraska.
The Seminoles defeat Northwestern, 7-0, and Nebraska, 9-0 (5 inn), on Saturday afternoon.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The Florida State softball team played an outstanding afternoon of softball on Saturday in the 2017 ACC/Big Ten Challenge as the No. 3 Seminoles (9-0) earned a pair of shutouts, topping Northwestern by a score of 7-0 to start the day and ending with a 9-0 win in five innings against Nebraska.

It was a complete team effort on Saturday as six different Seminoles combined to score the seven runs against Northwestern and nine separate FSU players scored a run against Nebraska to close out the day.

In the circle, Florida State faced 39 total batters on the day, just three over the minimum of 36 in the 12 innings that were played.

“Really pleased with how we played today,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We were able to get quality at bats up and down the order, and all of our pitchers were great in the circle. While we have a lot of depth that came back from last year, Team 34 is still young and we are beginning to figure out what this team is all about. Looking forward to close out the weekend on a high note tomorrow.”

As the visiting team to start the day, the Seminoles jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first against Northwestern (1-6) behind a sacrifice fly by Jessica Warren. Morgan Klaevemann led off the game with an infield single, stole second and moved to third on a groundout to put herself in position to score on the sac fly.

FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs got out to a great start, striking out each of the first six batters she faced and not allowing a base hit until the fourth inning.

The Noles added to their lead in the third inning as Dani Morgan and Morgan Klaevemann each hit a double in the top of the frame. Morgan was retired at the plate on a bunt by Cooper, but as the play continued, Cooper forced a rundown, allowing Klaevemann to score.

Alex Powers led off the FSU fourth with a double to right field and Zoe Casas followed later in the inning with a two-out walk and was pinch-run for by Korina Rosario. Freshman Leslie Farris drove in the first RBI of her career on a single to right to score Powers, and Rosario came in to score as the duo executed a perfect first-and-third situation to make it 4-0 FSU. Morgan added a single and a stolen base in the inning but was left stranded.

The Noles closed out their scoring with a three-run sixth as Carsyn Gordon led off with a walk. Redshirt freshman Sabrina Stutsman drew a pinch-hit walk and Casas re-entered to run for her at first base. Anna Shelnutt placed a perfect bunt single down the first base line, and when the NU fielder turned and threw to first base, no one was there and the ball sailed into right field to bring in two runs. Morgan made it 7-0 with her second sacrifice fly of the season to bring in Shelnutt.

Cassidy Davis entered the circle to start the bottom of the sixth, ending the day for Burroughs. The redshirt senior improved to 4-0 with 5.0 shutout innings, giving up just one walk with zero walks and nine strikeouts.

Davis closed out the game and gave up just one hit in her 2.0 innings pitched, tossing a pair of strikeouts without giving up a walk.

In the second game of the day against Nebraska (0-7), neither team was able to get out to a quick start as the Noles and Huskers managed just one baserunner each through the first two innings.

Nebraska got a runner on a single by Taylor Otte in the top of the third, but FSU’s Shelnutt gunned her down trying to steal second to end the inning. It was the third baserunner thrown out by the freshman catcher as opponents are just 2-for-5 against her on the season.

The Noles batted around in the third inning, bringing 12 batters to the plate and breaking the game open with eight runs scored. Gordon opened the inning with a walk and moved to second on a walk from Klaevemann. Cooper gave FSU the lead with an RBI double to right center and Warren added an RBI single of her own to make it 2-0 FSU.

Powers made it 4-0 with a two-RBI double to left center, marking her first RBIs of the season. Surprisingly, the redshirt senior entered the game batting .455 (10-for-22) with five doubles, yet zero RBI.

Morgan continued the inning with a bunt single and stole second, while a walk by Davis loaded the bases. Cali Harrod hit into a fielder’s choice to short, but the throw home was off target, allowing Powers and Morgan to score for a 6-0 lead. Gordon hit an RBI single through the left side and Sydney Broderick added an RBI on a groundout to complete the eight-run inning.

FSU added a run in the fourth inning on an RBI double by Morgan, scoring Powers who reached earlier in the inning on a single.

FSU starting pitcher Meghan King (4-0) earned the win after she scattered two hits in her 4.0 shutout innings, posting one strikeout without allowing a walk. Tessa Daniels entered to pitch the fifth inning and the Nebraska leadoff hitter reached base on an FSU fielding error. The next hitter hit a long fly ball into the gap in right center, where Klaevemann tracked it down and threw back to first to complete the double play. The sophomore pitcher capped the game with a strikeout.

02/19/2017, TALLAHASSEE, FL, Big Ten/ACC Challenge

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

No. 3 Noles Remain Perfect With 8-0 Win Over Nebraska.
Florida State improves to 10-0 on the year after defeating Nebraska on Sunday afternoon.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 3 Florida State softball continued its hot start to the season and improved to 10-0 with a 8-0 victory over Nebraska (0-8) on Sunday afternoon to close out the 2017 ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The winning streak is tied for the fifth-longest to start a season and the most since the 2012 team opened the year with a 16-0 record.

After another one-hitter on Sunday, the Seminole pitching staff lowered its opponent batting average to .147 and its ERA to 0.22 as FSU has only surrendered two earned runs so far this season.

"Sunday's are always the most mentally, physically and emotionally tough days and I am very proud of everyone for how they contributed today," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "While it may be cliché, we really are seeing everyone take it pitch-by-pitch, whether at the plate, on the field or in the dugout. We worked on a lot of things this week in practice about being a team, being selfless and celebrating the little things and that really showed this weekend."

As the visitors for Sunday's game, the Seminoles scored quickly in the top of the first on an RBI double by Alex Powers. Morgan Klaevemann led off the game with a single to center, stole second and came in to score on Powers' seventh double of the season. It marked the sixth time in 10 games that the Noles have scored in the first inning.

Powers extended the Seminole lead to 3-0 in the top of the third with her second double of the day, bringing in Klaevemann and Ellie Cooper. Klaevemann dropped a bunt single and increased her season stolen base total to seven after swiping second and third, while Cooper put a bunt in front of the plate and took second after the Nebraska catcher just held on to the ball.

FSU's Jessica Burroughs got out to another great start in the circle for the Noles, retiring the first six batters she faced and posting four strikeouts.

Sydney Broderick led off the FSU fifth inning with a double to left field and moved to third on a groundout by Klaevemann. Cooper drove in her seventh RBI of the season on a fielder's choice to second base as the throw home by Nebraska was unable to retire Broderick, extending the FSU lead to 4-0.

A walk to Jessica Warren, followed by back-to-back singles from Powers and Dani Morgan drove in another run for a 5-0 FSU lead after five innings.

Burroughs continued to dominate in the circle, allowing just one baserunner through the first 4.2 innings of the game on a leadoff single by Nebraska's Cassie McClure in the third inning. The Huskers threatened with a pair of runners in the fifth inning after a walk and an FSU throwing error, but Burroughs ended the inning with her eighth strikeout of the game.

Klaevemann was hit by a pitch in the top of the sixth inning and stole second for her fourth stolen base of the game. It marked the first time a Seminole had four stolen bases in a game since Whitney Buckmon against UAB on February 17, 2008.

Burroughs (5-0) was replaced to start the sixth inning and earned the win after tossing 5.0 shutout innings, giving up just one hit, one walk and recording eight strikeouts. Freshman Cassidy Davis closed out the game with 2.0 perfect innings in the circle to secure the victory.

The Noles finished their scoring with a three-run seventh inning after Warren drew a walk and Powers followed with her third double of the game to make it a 6-0 lead for FSU. It was her ninth double of the season and 41st of her career, moving her into a tie for third place in FSU history, trailing only Carly Wynn (45) and Jessica van der Linden (50).

Cali Harrod later brought in Powers, and herself, as she crushed her third home run of the season to left center to give the Noles an 8-0 lead.

Nebraska's Cassie McClure (0-3) took the loss, giving up eight runs on 12 hits, with three walks and five strikeouts.

TEXAS A&M 2, FLORIDA STATE 0
02/23/2017, Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, Palm Springs, Ca

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

No. 1 Seminoles Split Day One At Mary Nutter.
Florida State falls to No. 18 Texas A&M and defeats Stanford on Thursday night.

CATHEDRAL CITY, CA - On a breezy night in the desert, No. 1 Florida State (11-1) split its first two games of the 2017 Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic on Thursday night. FSU lost by a score of 2-0 to No. 18 Texas A&M (12-0) before earning an 8-2 win over Stanford (8-4).

"I loved our fight today," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "In the Texas A&M game, even though we were having our struggles, we never quit battling. I also loved how we didn't let the loss linger into our next game. We were able to come out and continue to attack each pitch and see a lot of success against Stanford. A lot of quality learning opportunities from tonight and another chance to get out and play Florida State softball tomorrow."

FSU had several offensive chances throughout the Texas A&M game as the Seminoles had runners on base in each of the first six innings, including runners in scoring position in the third, fourth and sixth innings. Texas A&M's centerfielder Erica Russell kept the game tied at 0-0 in the fifth, leaping well over the top of the wall to rob Ellie Cooper of a home run.

Jessica Burroughs had a solid outing in the circle, giving up just two runners and one base hit through the first 5.1 innings of the game. Texas A&M got its second hit of the game in the sixth inning from Kelli Milligan, which was quickly followed by a home run by Kaitlyn Alderink to give the Aggies a 2-0 lead.

The two runs were the first earned runs allowed by the Florida State pitching staff in the last 48.1 innings, dating back to Furman on February 11. The first four earned runs given up by the Seminoles in 2017 came via the home run.

Texas A&M starter Samantha Show (4-0) was difficult for the Seminole bats to figure out, as the sophomore tossed a career-high-tying 15 strikeouts in the complete game victory, scattering four hits and three walks in her 7.0 innings of work to earn the win.

Burroughs (5-1) finished with 5.1 innings pitched, giving up two runs on four hits with zero walks and eight strikeouts. Freshman Cassidy Davis faced just one batter in the sixth, but got two outs as she induced an inning-ending double play.

Morgan Klaevemann led the Noles at the plate, batting 2-for-3 with a stolen base. Cooper and Sydney Broderick also posted base hits, while Cali Harrod had a walk and a stolen base.

The Noles continued to find ways to get runners on base in the early innings against Stanford, but couldn't bring any of them in. FSU loaded the bases in the first on a walks by Cooper and Alex Powers, as well as a single by Jessica Warren, but all three would be left stranded.

In the third inning, FSU loaded the bases again behind walks by Cooper, Warren and Broderick, yet the Noles couldn't break through on the scoreboard.

Stanford got out to a 2-0 lead in the third inning after the first two batters reached base on walks from FSU starter Meghan King. A pair of RBI singles from Whitney Burks and Kristina Inouye gave the Cardinal the first lead of the game.

The Noles battled back with three runs in the top of the fourth - all with two outs - to take a 3-2 lead. Zoe Casas drove a single to right field, was pinch-run for by Korina Rosario and Klaevemann followed with bunt single. Cooper tied the game with a double down the left field line, and eventually came in to score on an RBI single by Warren.

FSU extended its lead to 4-2 in the fifth on a sac fly from Cassidy Davis. Dani Morgan opened the inning with an infield single and moved to third on a base hit by Harrod, before coming to score her fifth run of the season.

The Seminoles finished their scoring in the seventh inning, highlighted by doubles by Morgan, Klaevemann and Warren. Davis added an RBI single in the four-run inning for the Noles as they extended their lead to 8-2. It marked the sixth four-run inning of the season for Florida State.

Meghan King (5-0) earned the win after tossing 6.0 innings, giving up six hits, two runs and two walks with six strikeouts. Davis pitched a scoreless seventh inning, giving up two hits.

Florida State falls to No. 18 Texas A&M and defeats Stanford on Thursday night.

CATHEDRAL CITY, CA - On a breezy night in the desert, No. 1 Florida State (11-1) split its first two games of the 2017 Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic on Thursday night. FSU lost by a score of 2-0 to No. 18 Texas A&M (12-0) before earning an 8-2 win over Stanford (8-4).

Meghan King (5-0) earned the win after tossing 6.0 innings, giving up six hits, two runs and two walks with six strikeouts. Davis pitched a scoreless seventh inning, giving up two hits.

FLORIDA STATE 6, SAN DIEGO STATE 4
02/24/2017, Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, Palm Springs, Ca

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

FSU Tops San Diego State, 6-4.
The No. 1 Seminoles improved to 12-1 with a win over the Aztecs on Friday night.

CATHEDRAL CITY, CA - Continuing the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, No. 1 Florida State (12-1) earned a 6-4 victory on Friday night over San Diego State (5-5). The Noles tallied 10 hits from eight different players in the win.

"Solid game tonight," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We had a lot of quality at-bats and worked through some situations, while JB had a great outing again for us in the circle. Playing such late games out here, on top of the level of teams that we are playing, has been a good challenge to work through and will benefit us throughout the season."

FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs dominated the early innings against the Aztecs, posting six strikeouts in the first two innings. It marked the second time this season that Burroughs had recorded the first six outs of the game by strikeout, matching her performance against Northwestern on February 18.

The Noles took a 1-0 lead in the third inning after Morgan Klaevemann led off with an infield single. The junior stole second and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by Ellie Cooper, before scoring on a sacrifice fly by Jessica Warren.

Cassidy Davis pushed the lead to 2-0 in the bottom of the fourth, leading off the inning with the first home run of her career on a deep blast to center. Cali Harrod followed with a double to right, and after Klaevemann's bunt single, the duo executed a great first-and-third situation, inducing a throwing error from SDSU to allow both runners to score and make it 4-0 Seminoles.

Warren continued the inning with a two-out single to center and redshirt senior Alex Powers hit her first home run of the season to push the FSU lead to 6-0.

San Diego State got a pair of runs back in the top of the fifth, both unearned, as FSU committed a pair of errors in the inning. The Aztecs had runners on the corners with two outs after a pair of walks, a stolen base and an FSU error, and the Noles nearly got out of the inning unscathed, but another Seminole error allowed a run to score. The Aztecs brought in another run with an RBI single from Kiera Wright to cut the lead to 6-2.

Burroughs was replaced by Davis in the circle to open the sixth inning, and the freshman pitcher tossed a perfect sixth inning for the Noles, but gave up two runs in the seventh inning. The Aztecs led off the inning with a single by Taylor Stewart, and after a wild pitch and groundout, she came in to score on an RBI single by Jaylene Ignacio. The run snapped a streak of 14.0 scoreless innings to start the season for Davis.

San Diego State loaded the bases on a pair of walks, prompting Burroughs to re-enter the game. The redshirt senior induced a fielder's choice to second base, which cut the lead to 6-4, and ended the game with a pop out to short.

Burroughs (6-1) scattered two hits, two walks and gave up two unearned runs over 5.2 innings and posted eight strikeouts. Davis tossed 1.1 innings and surrendered two runs on two hits with two walks.

02/25/2017, Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, Palm Springs, Ca

No. 1 FSU Outlasts No. 9 Arizona.
The Seminoles earn a 1-0 victory over the Wildcats on Saturday night.

CATHEDRAL CITY, CA - It was a pitcher's duel in the desert on Saturday night between No. 1 Florida State and No. 9 Arizona , but the Noles (13-1) were able to push across a run in the third and hold on for a 1-0 victory over the Wildcats (15-1) at the 2017 Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic.

"Great win tonight in a game that felt more like June than late February," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Both pitchers had outstanding performances and it came down to a handful of plays to decide the winner. It's been great to play some highly-ranked teams in this tournament and we'll have the opportunity to do it again with UCLA and Michigan tomorrow."

Offense was at a premium in the early innings as both starting pitchers - FSU's Meghan King and Arizona's Danielle O'Toole - did a great job of limiting batters' chances as the game remained scoreless through the first three innings. Seven of the first nine outs recorded by O'Toole were strikeouts, while King allowed just four runners through the first four innings.

The Noles pushed across what proved to be the game's only run in the bottom of the third inning. Morgan Klaevemann reached on a walk and stole second with one away for her 11th stolen base of the season. Jessica Warren hit an RBI single up the middle that was stopped by the second baseman, but it was deep enough to score Klaevemann and make it 1-0 FSU.

Arizona threatened in the fifth inning as base hits by Ashleigh Hughes and Dejah Mulipola put Wildcat runners at second and third, but King was able to get out of the inning unscathed with a fly out to left.

Quality defense kept the Wildcats off the scoreboard in the sixth as Warren gloved a low liner from Katiyana Mauga for the first out and Ellie Cooper made two great defensive catches on line drives to steal base hits and end the inning.

Arizona refused to go down lightly in the seventh as Mandie Perez hit a two-out single up the middle, and an FSU error allowed her to move up to second base. Jessica Burroughs came in to relieve King and walked the first batter she faced before ending the game with a strikeout.

King earned the win and went to 6-0, scattering five hits and three walks over 6.2 innings, with three strikeouts. Burroughs earned her first save of the year, and the sixth of her career, moving into a tie with Leslie Malerich (1999-2002) for sixth place on the FSU all-time save list.

Arizona's O'Toole (8-1) picked up her first loss of the year, tossing 6.0 innings and giving up three hits, one run with two walks and eight strikeouts.

No. 1 Noles Go Undefeated On Final Day At Mary Nutter.
Florida State earned a 2-1 win over No. 6 UCLA and ended in a 5-5 tie with No. 14 Michigan.

CATHEDRAL CITY, CA - Playing three teams ranked in the top 15 in less than 20 hours to close out the 2017 Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, No. 1 Florida State (14-1-1) earned a win and a tie on Sunday, defeating No. 6 UCLA (13-3) by a score of 2-1, before ending in a 5-5 tie with No. 14 Michigan (8-4-1), due to a drop dead time for travel.

The Seminoles are now 3-0 on the season against teams in the Pac-12 conference, earning victories this weekend over Stanford, No. 9 Arizona and No. 6 UCLA.

"We knew this weekend was going to be a huge opportunity for us to grow as a team through the game and the opportunities that we had against some strong competition," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We are really, really excited as a coaching staff on how hard our kids fought.

"Today was a mentally tough day, playing two quality opponents, but I loved that each one of them gave everything they had and left it on the field. Getting the tie because of the drop dead is something unusual for us, but we'll definitely build and grow from this experience. I'm really proud of them."

FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs opened the game against UCLA on an impressive note, striking out the side in the bottom of the first inning.

The Seminoles took a 1-0 lead in the top of the second as Alex Powers led off with her 10th double of the season, chopping it over the UCLA first baseman's head and into the right field corner. Freshman Dani Morgan followed with an RBI single up the middle to give the Noles the early lead.

The Noles had runners in both the third and fourth innings, but couldn't find a way to bring them in. Morgan Klaevemann reached on a UCLA error to open the third, stole second and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt from Ellie Cooper. A walk from Powers put runners on the corners, but both would be left stranded. Cali Harrod singled and stole second in the fourth, but was left on base.

Burroughs continued her strong start, facing just one over the minimum through the first 4.2 innings, giving up just a single to Paige Halstead in the second inning.

FSU extended its lead to 2-0 in the fifth inning behind a pair of doubles from Cooper and Powers.

The Bruins got their second baserunner of the game on a two-out single from Brianna Tautalafua in the bottom of the fifth inning, and after Burroughs gave up another single to Gabrielle Maurice, Meghan King came on to replace Burroughs in the circle for Florida State.

A single up the middle by Zoe Shaw cut the FSU lead to 2-1, but Cooper made a great defensive play at second base, ranging to her left and making a backhand stop and a backhand toss to Powers at first to end the inning and maintain the Seminole lead.

The Noles threatened in the sixth as Morgan led off with single through the left side. Korina Rosario put down a sacrifice bunt, and Morgan went past second and all the way to third on the play. However she would be left stranded after a pop out and a strikeout.

King closed out the game for the Noles, earning her first save of the season with 2.2 scoreless innings and giving up just two hits. Burroughs (7-1) picked up the win, tossing 4.2 innings and giving up three hits, one run with zero walks and five strikeouts.

UCLA's Rachel Garcia (6-3) pitched a complete game in the loss, giving up six hits, two runs and three walks with eight strikeouts.

Florida State struck first against the Wolverines, taking a 1-0 lead after the first inning. Klaevemann led off the game with a 10-pitch at bat that culminated in a single to center. After a pair of hit-by-pitches to Cooper and Warren to load the bases, Powers hit a sacrifice fly to center to make it 1-0 FSU.

Michigan tied it up in the bottom of the first as Abby Ramirez was hit by a pitch and later came in to score on an RBI double by Kelly Christner.

Klaevemann reached on a bunt single in the second inning and stole second to move into scoring position for Cooper. The senior lined a single into right, but Klaevemann was thrown out at the plate to end the inning.

The Noles got back out in front in the fifth inning after Cooper was hit by a pitch and Powers walked. Sydney Broderick drove a double into the left field corner to score them both and give the Noles a 3-1 lead.

After Michigan loaded the bases with no outs in the fifth on a pair of singles and a walk, Burroughs entered the game to pitch for King, who started the game for FSU.

Burroughs got the first batter she faced to pop out, and Aidan Falk cut the lead to 3-2 with a sac fly to center. A walk and an infield single by Katie Alexander tied the game at 3-3 before a fly out to right ended the inning.

FSU took the lead back in the top of the sixth on a solo home run by Zoe Casas, but Michigan came right back to take the lead in the bottom of the inning. A pair of walks gave Tera Blanco the opportunity to give Michigan a 5-4 lead with a double to right center.

Cassidy Davis entered the game to pitch for FSU after the Wolverines gained the lead and got out of the inning on an infield single to Harrod at short, as the sophomore backdoored Blanco at third to end the inning after she rounded too far off the bag.

FSU tied it back up in the top of the seventh after a leadoff double by Cooper. Warren followed with a walk and Broderick loaded the bases with a one-out single to center. Morgan hit a grounder to third and U-M's Lindsey Montemarano elected to step on the base and fire to first, but she was too late to get Morgan, allowing Cooper to score and tie the game at 5-5.

Michigan went down in order in the seventh, and due to a drop dead time in order to make flights home, the game was called a tie after seven innings with the score 5-5.

King finished with 4.0 innings, giving up three runs on six hits with two walks and a strikeout. Burroughs gave up two runs in 1.2 innings with two hits and three walks. Davis pitched 1.1 scoreless innings, surrendering just one hit with no walks and one strikeout.

Megan Betsa tossed 145 pitches in the complete game for Michigan, giving up five runs on seven hits with four walks and 11 strikeouts.

Burroughs' One-Hitter Carries Noles Over Georgia Tech.
No. 1 Florida State shuts out Georgia Tech, 4-0, as redshirt senior Jessica Burroughs records a one-hitter.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Posting a shutout for the eighth time this season, No. 1 Florida State (15-1-1, 1-0 ACC) opened conference play with a 4-0 win over Georgia Tech (6-11, 0-1 ACC) on Friday night at JoAnne Graf Field behind an outstanding pitching performance from Jessica Burroughs.

The redshirt senior improved to 8-1 on the season, allowing just three base runners on one hit and two walks as no Jacket runner reached third base on the night. Burroughs tied a career high with 14 strikeouts in the complete game win, posting a streak of five strikeouts in a row from the fourth to the sixth inning.

It marked the fourth time in her career that Burroughs had recorded 14 strikeouts in a game, matching her performances against Florida A&M on May 20, 2016 and April 1, 2015, as well as against No. 6 Kentucky on February 8, 2015.

"I think our defense and pitching did a great job tonight," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Jessica's worked really hard and tonight she had it moving a lot of different directions. She did a good job with that and kept her composure and the defense played great behind her. Getting the 'W' was awesome and now that we know more of what Georgia Tech is about, we have two days to make some adjustments and go from there."

FSU had multiple runners in both the first and second innings, but were unable to get on the scoreboard until the third inning. In the FSU first, Morgan Klaevemann led off with a bunt single and stole second, while Jessica Warren got on with a walk. In the second, the Noles loaded the bases on singles by Cali Harrod and Sydney Broderick, as well as a walk to Cassidy Davis, but all five would be left on base to open the game.

The Noles broke through in the third inning, bringing in four runs on three hits to take a 4-0 lead. Alex Powers and Warren led off with a pair of walks and Dani Morgan started the scoring with an RBI single up the middle. A single by Harrod loaded the bases and a two-RBI single by Broderick made it a 3-0 game. Davis extended the lead to 4-0 as the freshman grounded out to third to score Harrod.

It is the 20th time that FSU has scored multiple runs in an inning this season, and the eighth time the Noles have brought in four or more.

The Noles led off the fourth and sixth innings with base hits on singles from Ellie Cooper and Klaevemann, but were unable to string the offense together to bring in any additional runs for the remainder of the game.

Emily Anderson (0-4) took the loss for Georgia Tech, giving up four runs on 10 hits with five walks and six strikeouts in her 6.0 innings of work.

Florida State Earns Series Win Over Georgia Tech.
The No. 1 Seminoles take game two over Georgia Tech, 13-8, on Saturday afternoon.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In a game where Florida State got out to an early 8-0 lead, Georgia Tech refused to go quietly and had the game-tying run on deck in the top of the seventh as the No. 1 Seminoles (16-1-1, 2-0 ACC) held on for a 13-8 victory over the Yellow Jackets (6-12, 0-2 ACC) on Saturday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field.

The win secured the series win for Florida State, extending its streak of ACC series wins to 34, as the Noles have not lost a conference series since 2012.

"Sometimes a win is a win, and you just have to chalk it up to that," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "One of the exciting parts of the season is learning through the game and we had a lot of people get a lot of opportunities today for that and we'll be better for it. Georgia Tech battled and took advantage of some situations and now I'm excited about tomorrow where we can take everything we've learned and move forward."

The Seminoles used another big inning to get out to a quick lead on Georgia Tech in game two of the series. Sydney Broderick led off the second inning and was hit by a pitch and moved up to third after Cassidy Davis followed with a double. Back-to-back RBI singles from Carsyn Gordon and Anna Shelnutt gave FSU a 2-0 lead with zero outs in the inning.

Alex Powers and Dani Morgan followed with RBI singles of their own, and a sacrifice fly by Cali Harrod closed out the scoring in the FSU second inning with the Noles up 5-0.

FSU scored three times in the fourth inning for an 8-0 lead, behind a home run by Powers, an RBI double by Morgan and an RBI single by Broderick.

FSU's Meghan King had an outstanding start for the Noles in the circle, allowing just two baserunners through 4.0 innings on a pair of singles and didn't allow a runner to reach third base.

Facing the possibility of a run-rule shortened game, Georgia Tech battled for three runs in the top of the fifth as Tessa Daniels came in to pitch for Florida State. The sophomore hit a batter, induced a fly out and walked three others before being replaced by Davis in the circle with the score 8-1 FSU. Each of the next two Jacket hitters drove in a run to cut the Seminole lead to 8-3 going to the bottom of five.

The Noles got two runs back in the bottom of the fifth as Shelnutt led off with a single and was pinch run for by Korina Rosario. Rosario moved to second on a sac bunt and over to third on a single by Powers. An RBI groundout by Warren brought in a run, while an infield single by Morgan and a throwing error from Georgia Tech allowed Powers to score and extend the lead to 10-3.

In the sixth inning, Georgia Tech loaded the bases with three two-out singles and Samantha Pieranunnzi hit her fifth home run of the year for a grand slam to make it a 10-7 game going to the bottom of the inning.

FSU loaded the bases in its half of the sixth on a double by Broderick and walks by Gordon and Leslie Farris. A wild pitch from GT's Jenna Goodrich allowed Broderick to score and a throwing error brought in Gordon to make it 12-7 FSU. An RBI single up the middle by Powers pushed the Seminole lead to 13-7.

Georgia Tech got its first two batters on base in the seventh by way of an FSU error and an infield single and cut the lead to 13-8 on an RBI groundout by Kelsey Chisholm. After a walk and another FSU fielding error loaded the bases with two outs, King re-entered to pitch for Florida State, ending the game with a fly out to right.

King moved to 7-0 on the year, striking out five and allowing two hits in 4.1 shutout innings without a walk. Daniels gave up three runs on three walks in 0.1 of work, while Davis was charged with five runs, four earned with six hits and one walk over 2.1 innings.

GT's Brooke Barfield (2-5) took the loss, giving up eight runs on nine hits with two walks and two strikeouts in 3.0 innings, while Goodrich tossed the final 3.0 innings of the game, surrendering five runs, four earned with four walks and five strikeouts.

Another One-Hitter From Burroughs Helps FSU Sweep GT.
The redshirt senior pitcher allowed just one baserunner in the game as No. 1 FSU defeated Georgia Tech, 8-0, in five innings.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - With another impressive pitching outing from redshirt senior Jessica Burroughs, No. 1 Florida State (17-1-1, 3-0 ACC) swept the season series against Georgia Tech (6-13, 0-3 ACC) with an 8-0 victory in five innings on Sunday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field.

Burroughs allowed just one runner to reach base for the entire game on an infield single by Jessica Kowalewicz in the fourth inning. She opened the game with three strikeouts in the first inning, marking her fifth start this season - and fourth in a row - that she has struck out the side in the first inning.

Burroughs closed out the game with six strikeouts and zero walks and now is 9-1 on the season with a 0.86 ERA, 80 strikeouts in 57.0 innings as opponents are hitting just .123 against her on the year.

The series sweep in conference play is the 24th by FSU in its last 34 ACC series, dating back to the start of the 2013 season. The Seminoles are now 86-10 (.896%) in their last 96 regular season games against conference opponents and have won 12 straight against the Yellow Jackets.

"It was great to get these wins as we start the next phase of the season," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "You think of the season in thirds, with your pre-conference games, your conference games and then the postseason. It was a really good opportunity for us to play three games over three days to make some adjustments and I thought we did a great job with that.

"I think Jessica (Burroughs) does a great job of mixing speeds and has a lot of movement. She's pretty confident right now, and that helps, but she has great teammates behind her and giving her run support. Those are all big things for her. Big team win and a good team effort today."

The Noles scratched an unearned run across in the first inning as Alex Powers was hit by a pitch and she moved up to second on a walk to Jessica Warren. Dani Morgan lifted a fly ball to center, but it was dropped by the GT's Samantha Pierannunzi, allowing Powers to come in to score for a 1-0 lead.

FSU loaded the bases on walks in the second inning by Cali Harrod, Carsyn Gordon and Powers - including stolen bases by Harrod and Morgan Klaevemann - but all three would be left stranded on base.

Florida State made it 2-0 in the fourth inning on a bases-loaded sacrifice fly from Powers, after Gordon, Anna Shelnutt and Klaevemann had reached on a pair of walks and a fielder's choice.

The Seminoles closed out the game with a six-run fifth inning to secure the run-rule victory. Morgan led off with a bunt single and Sydney Broderick followed with a single to left field. A walk by Ellie Cooper loaded the bases with nobody out in the inning.

Harrod reached on a fielding error by the GT shortstop, driving in a run to make it 3-0 FSU. A hit by pitch to Gordon and a walk to Shelnutt extended the lead to 5-0.

Powers drove in two runs on a single to left, giving her 16 RBI in her last 11 games, as the Noles made it 7-0. After Warren was hit by a pitch to reload the bases, Morgan ended the game with a sacrifice fly to center for the 8-0 final score.

Emily Anderson (0-5) took the loss for the Jackets, giving up eight runs, five earned over 4.1 innings with just three hits, eight walks and three strikeouts. Brooke Barfield pitched the final 0.1 of the game for GT, facing two batters.

Jessica van der Linden Jersey Retirement

As part of Alumni Weekend, FSU Softball honored one of its all-time greats with the jersey retirement of Jessica van der Linden.

The Cerritos, California native played at FSU from 2001-2004 and led the Noles to a pair of Women's College World Series appearances in 2002 and 2004. In 2004, she earned USA Softball National Player of the Year honors, as well as the Honda Award for softball.

For her career, she batted .361, including over .400 as both a junior and a senior, and finished as FSU's all-time leader with 50 career doubles, 161 RBI and 144 walks. In the circle, van der Linden posted a career 1.24 ERA with 76 wins and 899 strikeouts over 690.0 innings. She was inducted into the Florida State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2014 and remains in FSU's all-time Top 10 in 14 different statistical categories.

Her No. 99 jersey joined Darby Cottle's No. 15 on the left field wall at JoAnne Graf Field, as Cottle's jersey was retired in 1998.

"What an honor to be able to celebrate Jessica van der Linden today," added Alameda. "It was extremely special to have all the alumni back this weekend. You wear this jersey for four years and you want to leave it better than you found it, and that's what players and coaches did before us. Seeing so many people and talking to them this weekend to continue to learn about our history and honoring that will go a long way for our program."

No. 1 FSU Posts Two Shutouts Over North Florida.
The Seminoles earned wins of 8-0, in 5 innings, and 3-0 against the Ospreys on Wednesday night in Tallahassee.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Increasing its shutout total to 11 through the first 21 games of the season, No. 1 Florida State (19-1-1) defeated North Florida (10-13) in both games of a doubleheader on Wednesday night at JoAnne Graf Field. The Seminoles earned an 8-0 win in five innings in game one and posted a 3-0 victory in game two.

It has been 17.0 innings, and three entire games, since an opponent has gotten a runner to third base on the Seminole pitching staff and defense.

"It is definitely nice to get out here and play against a quality team like UNF and continue to work the process," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "It's a long season and we'll continue to make adjustments and build off of one another. I thought we did good job with defense and pitching and had some timely hitting to take advantage of some things. It was a nice doubleheader for us."

Florida State jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the second inning of game one. Sydney Broderick started off the inning with a single to center and Cali Harrod followed with an infield single. Carsyn Gordon got the Noles on the board with an RBI single up the middle and Zoe Casas made it 2-0 with a sacrifice fly to right center.

Broderick made it a 3-0 game with her second hit of the game, an RBI single to right center in the third inning. She brought in Jessica Warren who singled and stole second base to move into scoring position.

A five-run fourth inning gave the Noles the eight-run advantage needed to end the game in five innings. Casas led off with a single to right and was pinch-run for by Korina Rosario, while Morgan Klaevemann added an infield single later in the inning. Warren brought both of them in, along with herself, as she launched her fifth home run of the season to center.

After Dani Morgan was hit by a pitch and stole second, she came into score on an RBI single by Broderick to make it a 7-0 game. Broderick matched a career high with three hits in the game, a feat she had accomplished four times in 2016.

Deja Bush entered to run for Broderick and immediately stole second base for her eighth SB of the season. Harrod capped the scoring with her third triple of year to complete the 8-0 final score.

Meghan King needed just 39 pitches in her 4.0 innings of work in the circle, moving to 8-0 on the season as she allowed three hits and zero walks with two strikeouts. Freshman Cassidy Davis pitched the final inning and allowed a walk and a base hit.

UNF's Morgan Blourne (4-3) gave up eight runs on 11 hits with two walks and a strikeout in the loss.

Gordon opened the scoring for the Noles again in game two, driving in Ellie Cooper and Broderick in the second inning with a single to right field after both reached base via a walk.

Klaevemann gave the Noles a 3-0 lead in the fourth inning, driving a single up the middle to score Gordon from second after she and Casas walked.

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs (10-1) had another outstanding outing in the circle, scattering three hits and zero walks over 7.0 innings as she recorded 11 strikeouts.

North Florida's Logan Green (3-8) only allowed two hits in the loss, but struggled to find the zone as her eight walks and zero strikeouts allowed the Noles to have runners on to drive in all three runs of the game on those two hits.

FSU Earns Two Run-Rule Victories At Virginia Tech.
The No. 1 Seminoles post a pair of five-inning victories over Virginia Tech, 12-3 and 13-2.

BLACKSBURG, VA - Scoring early and often, No. 1 Florida State (21-1-1, 5-0 ACC) earned a pair of five-inning victories against Virginia Tech (10-10, 2-5 ACC) on Friday afternoon at Tech Softball Park. The Noles earned wins of 12-3 and 13-2 to sweep both games of the doubleheader against the Hokies and take the season series.

The Seminoles are now unbeaten in their last 35 conference series, dating back to the start of the 2013 season. Overall, FSU is 88-10 (.898%) in its last 98 regular season games against ACC opponents.

"Great day today out of this team," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Knowing the forecast with the cold and the wind, it could have been easy to begin to get distracted by that, but I loved how it didn't affect anyone's focus and we battled through it and continued to play Seminole softball. Scoring early in the game helped put the pressure on and our pitchers did a great job all afternoon. Hopefully, we can get the final game in tomorrow before more weather comes in."

The Noles immediately got out in front in the first inning of game one of the doubleheader. Morgan Klaevemann and Alex Powers reached on a pair of walks and Sydney Broderick loaded the bases on a single to left field. A walk to Cali Harrod and a hit-by-pitch to Ellie Cooper gave the Noles a 2-0 lead, prompting a pitching change from the Hokies.

Virginia Tech brought in Carrie Eberle to replace starter Aysha Richardson and Eberle issued a walk to Dani Morgan and Carsyn Gordon hit a double to right field to give the Noles a 5-0 lead after the first inning.

FSU added a pair of runs in the second inning to extend the lead to 7-0. Powers and Jessica Warren reached on an infield single and a walk, respectively, and after two wild pitches by VT's Eberle, Powers was able to score the first run of the inning. Harrod followed with an RBI single to the second baseman to bring in Warren.

Powers and Warren each hit singles to lead off the FSU fourth inning and both came into score on a sacrifice fly by Harrod, as her fly ball to right was misplayed and dropped to allow both runners to score for a 9-0 Seminole lead.

The Noles brought in three more runs in the top of the fifth - all with two outs - as Sabrina Stutsman got the offense started with a pinch-hit single up the middle. She was pinch run for by Korina Rosario who took second on a wild pitch and ended up on third on a bunt single by Klaevemann. Another wild pitch brought in Rosario, while an RBI single by Powers extended the FSU lead to 11-0. Warren closed out the scoring with an RBI triple to left field.

Meghan King (9-0) was great in the circle for the Noles and scattered two infield hits in 4.0 innings, one that bounced off the first base bag and another that was chopped behind the circle. She gave up three walks and posted four strikeouts before being relieved to start the fifth inning.

Cassidy Davis entered to pitch for King, but gave up four doubles to the first four batters she faced, allowing the Hokies to cut the lead to 12-3.

The runs snapped a streak of 21.1 scoreless innings by FSU pitchers, dating back to March 4 against Georgia Tech.

King re-entered to pitch for the Noles and retired the first batter she faced on a groundout, but gave up a single to put runners on the corners with one out. A line drive to Morgan at second base was caught and thrown to first for the game-ending double play to secure the 12-3 FSU victory.

VT's Richardson (1-3) took the loss, giving up five runs on a hit and three walks in 0.1 innings. Eberle pitched 2.2 innings, allowing six hits, four runs, three earned with four walks and three strikeouts. Olivia Lattin tossed the final 2.0 innings for the Hokies, giving up three runs on four hits.

The Seminole offense kept rolling right into game two as FSU scored 11 runs in the first inning. Warren hit a two-run home run and an RBI single in the inning, as Cooper and Stutsman both hit RBI doubles.

Virginia Tech also committed four errors in the inning as four runs were scored directly off of two of the errors. Broderick ended the scoring with her first home run of the season.

The Hokies got a run back in the bottom of the second on a solo home run by Breanna Davenport, but that would be just one of two hits allowed by FSU's King through her 2.0 innings of work.

A leadoff triple by Klaevemann in the FSU third turned into the 12th run of the game on a sacrifice fly by Powers.

Jessica Burroughs replaced King for the bottom of the third and struck out all three batters in the inning.

Cooper opened the FSU fourth, reaching base on a fielding error by the VT centerfielder and advancing to third on an infield single by Morgan. Gordon extended the Seminole lead to 13-1 with a sac fly to right to score Cooper.

VT's Davenport launched her second solo home run of the game in the bottom of the fourth, to cut the FSU lead to 13-2.

Burroughs improved to 11-1 on the season, tossing 3.0 innings of relief and giving up just one run on one hit with one walk. She recorded eight strikeouts, striking out the side in the third and fifth inning.

VT's Taylor Barnes gave up eight unearned runs and five hits in 0.1 innings with one walk. Eberle gave up seven hits and five runs with a walk and two strikeouts as she pitched the final 4.2 innings of the game.

FSU Earns Two Run-Rule Victories At Virginia Tech.
The No. 1 Seminoles post a pair of five-inning victories over Virginia Tech, 12-3 and 13-2.

BLACKSBURG, VA - Scoring early and often, No. 1 Florida State (21-1-1, 5-0 ACC) earned a pair of five-inning victories against Virginia Tech (10-10, 2-5 ACC) on Friday afternoon at Tech Softball Park. The Noles earned wins of 12-3 and 13-2 to sweep both games of the doubleheader against the Hokies and take the season series.

The Hokies got a run back in the bottom of the second on a solo home run by Breanna Davenport, but that would be just one of two hits allowed by FSU's King through her 2.0 innings of work.

A leadoff triple by Klaevemann in the FSU third turned into the 12th run of the game on a sacrifice fly by Powers.

Jessica Burroughs replaced King for the bottom of the third and struck out all three batters in the inning.

Cooper opened the FSU fourth, reaching base on a fielding error by the VT centerfielder and advancing to third on an infield single by Morgan. Gordon extended the Seminole lead to 13-1 with a sac fly to right to score Cooper.

VT's Davenport launched her second solo home run of the game in the bottom of the fourth, to cut the FSU lead to 13-2.

Burroughs improved to 11-1 on the season, tossing 3.0 innings of relief and giving up just one run on one hit with one walk. She recorded eight strikeouts, striking out the side in the third and fifth inning.

VT's Taylor Barnes gave up eight unearned runs and five hits in 0.1 innings with one walk. Eberle gave up seven hits and five runs with a walk and two strikeouts as she pitched the final 4.2 innings of the game.

FLORIDA STATE 5, VIRGINIA TECH 2
03/11/2017, BLACKSBURG, VA

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

No. 1 Seminoles Sweep Hokies With 5-2 Win.
Florida State closes out the season series with Virginia Tech with a 5-2 win on Saturday afternoon.

BLACKSBURG, VA - Competing in temperatures that hovered in the upper 30s, along with wind chills in the upper 20s, No. 1 Florida State (21-1-1, 5-0 ACC) closed out the series with Virginia Tech (10-10, 2-5 ACC) with a 5-2 win on March 11 at Tech Softball Park.

The victory gives Florida State 25 sweeps in the last 35 ACC series, including six of the last seven.

The Seminoles are off to their best start in 24 years, and the fourth-best record in program history through the first 24 games of the season. The 1992 team started 24-0, while FSU opened with a 23-1 record in both 1993 and 1986.

"Really pleased with how we closed out the weekend," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We got out to an early lead and were able to withstand their attempts to comeback. There was production up and down the lineup and Meghan and JB again combined for a solid game in the circle. Playing a team for the third time is always difficult and we made enough adjustments to get the win."

Florida State scored in the first inning for the third consecutive game to take an early lead in the series finale. Morgan Klaevemann and Alex Powers each got on with singles and a walk to Jessica Warren loaded the bases.

FSU got its first run on the board on an infield fly by Cali Harrod that was dropped by the Virginia Tech shortstop, allowing Klaevemann to score from third base. The Noles added two more runs without putting a ball in play as Ellie Cooper and Carsyn Gordon walked and Dani Morgan was hit by a pitch to give FSU a 3-0 lead after the top of the first.

It is the 11th time in 24 games that Florida State has scored in the first inning and the Noles are undefeated in those games, posting a record of 10-0-1.

Powers launched her third home run of the season to deep center in the top of the second to make it 4-0 FSU. Harrod followed with a double to center in the inning, but would be left stranded.

Virginia Tech cut the lead to 4-1 in the second inning, getting a pair of runners on with a hit-by-pitch to Emma Strouth and an infield single by Caitlyn Nolan. VT's Chelsea Whitcomb drove in the only run of the inning on a two-out double to center, and FSU starting pitcher Meghan King got out of the inning with a groundout to second base.

The Noles scored for the third consecutive inning as Sabrina Stutsman lined a two-out single to center in the third. Fellow redshirt freshman Deja Bush replaced her at first base and Bush came in to score on a double down the left field line by Klaevemann.

The Hokies got another run back in the bottom of the third, getting the first two runners on base via a single and a walk. A fielder's choice and an RBI groundout brought in the second run of the game for VT to cut the lead to 5-2.

After allowing the first two batters to reach base in the Virginia Tech fifth inning, King was replaced in the circle by Jessica Burroughs with one out and runners on the corners. Burroughs was able to get out of the inning on a fly out to center and a strikeout to maintain the Seminole lead.

Burroughs retired all eight batters she faced, finishing with four strikeouts, to earn her second save of the season and the seventh of her career, which moves her into a tie for fourth in FSU history.

King (10-0) scattered six hits in 4.1 innings, giving two runs and two walks with one strikeout.

VT's Whitcomb (2-3) took the loss, allowing five runs on seven hits with three walks and two strikeout in 4.0 innings. Aysha Richardson tossed the final 3.0 innings for the Hokies, giving up four hits.

Burroughs Records Complete-Game Shutout Over FGCU.
The No. 1 Seminoles defeated Florida Gulf Coast, 7-0, on Tuesday night.

FT. MYERS, FL - Continuing her impressive start to the season in the circle, redshirt senior Jessica Burroughs recorded 12 strikeouts in a complete-game shutout as No. 1 Florida State (23-1-1) earned a 7-0 win over Florida Gulf Coast (13-10) in front of a sellout crowd at the FGCU Softball Complex on Tuesday night.

Burroughs struck out the side in the first inning for the sixth time in her 12 starts this season and didn't allow a hit until the fourth inning. She improved to 12-1 on the season, giving up just three hits and a walk in the game.

"Quality outing today from the entire team," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Even though we didn't get on the board until the fourth, everyone kept battling and staying in it, having good at bats and knowing that if you keep trusting the process, you'll continue to create good opportunities. Burroughs was confident and attacking in the circle and the defense made plays behind her. Now we'll have a couple of chances to get after it again tomorrow with the doubleheader."

The Noles had runners on in each of the first three innings on singles by Dani Morgan, Sydney Broderick and Morgan Klaevemann, respectively, but all would be left stranded.

Florida State broke through in the fourth inning as Alex Powers legged out an infield single and came in to score on an RBI triple by Jessica Warren. Ellie Cooper pushed the FSU lead to 2-0 with a sacrifice fly to right field.

After a walk to Broderick, Carsyn Gordon drove her third triple of the season to right field to extend the Seminole advantage to 3-0.

The Noles brought in four runs in the seventh, all with two outs, to complete the final 7-0 score. Cassidy Davis drew a walk and was pinch-hit for by Korina Rosario. Consecutive base hits from Morgan and Powers loaded the bases with one away in the inning.

Warren extended the lead to 4-0 with her fourth sacrifice fly of the season to score Rosario for her team-leading 26th RBI of the season. Cooper drove a double in the gap in right center to empty the bases and Broderick followed with her second hit of the day to make it 7-0 Seminoles.

The Eagles managed just two hits in the first six innings, both by leadoff hitter Kelsey Huff. FGCU managed a walk and a single in the seventh inning to put runners on the corners with nobody out. Burroughs retired the next three batters to close out the game.

No. 1 Noles Post Two Run-Rule Wins On Wednesday.
Florida State earns a 9-1 win in six innings over Canisius and defeats Florida Gulf Coast, 13-1, in five innings.

FT. MYERS, FL – Wrapping up its spring break road trip in impressive fashion, No. 1 Florida State (25-1-1) earned a pair of run-rule victories on Wednesday afternoon on the campus of Florida Gulf Coast. The Noles posted a 9-1 victory in six innings over Canisius (9-10) to start the day, and wrapped up the day with a five-inning, 13-1 win against FGCU (13-11).

“Great way to close out a long road trip,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We got quality innings out of each pitcher today and got our freshmen in a lot of different situations and opportunities to learn and gain experience. The lineup kept the pressure on from the first pitch and were seeing the ball well today. Now it is time to head home and prepare for a hard-fought weekend with Notre Dame.”

The Noles got out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning against Canisius as Morgan Klaevemann led off with a walk. A groundout, a wild pitch and a throwing error brought her around her score her 23rd run of the season.

Ellie Cooper and Sydney Broderick led off the FSU second inning with a pair of singles and both came in to score later in the inning on an RBI single by Cali Harrod and a sacrifice fly by Anna Shelnutt.

The Seminoles scored two more in the top of the third as Dani Morgan led off with a walk and stole second base. An RBI single from Alex Powers brought in the first run of the inning, but she was thrown out trying to stretch it to second base.

Jessica Warren was hit by a pitch and Cooper drew a walk. A groundout moved both into scoring position and a wild pitch from Canisius pitcher Erika Mackie allowed Warren to score.

Canisius cut the lead to 5-1 in the bottom of the fourth as Samantha Sharkey led off the inning with the first hit of the game for the Golden Griffins. A wild pitch by FSU starter Jessica Burroughs allowed her to move to second and a single by Lauren Castro brought in their only run of the game.

The Noles brought eight batters to the plate in the fifth inning, led off by a bunt single from Morgan. Powers reached on a fielder’s choice and was pinch run for by Korina Rosario and the junior came in to score on Warren’s third triple of the season.

Cooper made it 7-1 FSU with a sacrifice fly to center and after singles from Leslie Farris and Carsyn Gordon, Harrod drove in her second run of the game on an RBI single to left.

Cassidy Davis entered to pitch for the Noles, ending Burroughs’ day in the circle. Burroughs improved to 13-1 on the year, allowing just two hits and one run in 4.0 innings with zero walks and nine strikeouts.

After a scoreless bottom of the fifth, the Seminoles brought in a run in the top of the sixth to give FSU an eight-run lead. Klaevemann led off the inning with a double to center and moved to third on a single by Powers. Warren later walked, but ball four was a wild pitch to score Klaevemann.

Davis closed out the game, pitching a scoreless sixth, giving up a leadoff walk but retiring the next three batters to secure the 9-1 victory. Davis gave up zero hits in her 2.0 innings, with one walk and two strikeouts.

Mackie (4-5) took the loss for the Golden Griffins, allowing 11 hits and nine runs in her 5.1 innings with four walks and three strikeouts. Lauren Castro retired both batters she faced in the sixth inning.

The Seminoles scored in the top of the first of the second game of the day against Florida Gulf Coast. Morgan drew a walk and moved to second on a single by Warren. Cooper gave FSU a 1-0 lead with an RBI single to left.

FGCU threatened in the bottom of the first inning, getting the first two batters on with a single by Kelsey Huff and a walk by Natalie Lopez. FSU’s Meghan King got out of the inning unscathed, retiring the next three batters.

The Noles tacked on two runs in the second inning with Harrod’s fourth home run of the season, a two-run shot to bring in Gordon who led off the inning with a walk.

A nine-run third inning for the Noles broke open the game to give FSU a 12-0 lead. Warren led off the inning with a single as the first 10 batters reached base safely in the inning. Cooper followed with a single and Broderick drove an RBI double into the left field corner.

Gordon walked and Harrod drove in her fourth RBI of the game on a two-run single to right. Zoe Casas made it 8-0 Seminoles with a two-run double into the gap in left center. Klaevemann hit an infield single, stole second and Morgan loaded the bases with a walk.

Powers brought in another run with a walk and Warren hit her second single of the inning into right field, scoring a run to make it 10-0. Cooper hit a sacrifice fly to left for the first out of the inning and Gordon later hit an RBI single to right to give the Noles a 12-0 lead.

King had an extremely efficient outing in the circle, tossing just four pitches in the second inning and 10 in the third, before being replaced by Tessa Daniels to start the bottom of the fourth. King (11-0) gave up just two hits and one walk with one strikeout in her 3.0 innings of shutout softball.

Daniels opened the FGCU fourth with a strikeout, but three walks loaded the bases with two outs in the inning. Daniels left them all stranded, inducing a groundout to Farris at short to end the inning.

Broderick hit a solo home run to lead off the top of the fifth inning, her second of the season and 19th of her career, to give the Noles a 13-0 lead.

FSU’s Farris made a diving stop at short for the first out of the fifth, and an FSU throwing error allowed a runner to get to second with one out. An RBI single by Racquel Fournet drove in a run, and after a fielder’s choice and a single, the Eagles had runners on first and second with two outs.

Daniels closed out the game with a strikeout, her second of the game. She tossed 2.0 innings, giving up two hits, one run, with three walks and two strikeouts.

FGCU starter Gabbee Draney (0-1) gave up eight runs on eight hits in 2.0 innings, issuing three walks and recording three strikeouts. Morgan White pitched the final 3.0 innings, allowing five hits and five runs with five walks and a strikeout.

No. 1 Noles Post Two Run-Rule Wins On Wednesday.
Florida State earns a 9-1 win in six innings over Canisius and defeats Florida Gulf Coast, 13-1, in five innings.

FT. MYERS, FL – Wrapping up its spring break road trip in impressive fashion, No. 1 Florida State (25-1-1) earned a pair of run-rule victories on Wednesday afternoon on the campus of Florida Gulf Coast. The Noles posted a 9-1 victory in six innings over Canisius (9-10) to start the day, and wrapped up the day with a five-inning, 13-1 win against FGCU (13-11).

“Great way to close out a long road trip,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We got quality innings out of each pitcher today and got our freshmen in a lot of different situations and opportunities to learn and gain experience. The lineup kept the pressure on from the first pitch and were seeing the ball well today. Now it is time to head home and prepare for a hard-fought weekend with Notre Dame.”

The Noles got out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning against Canisius as Morgan Klaevemann led off with a walk. A groundout, a wild pitch and a throwing error brought her around her score her 23rd run of the season.

Ellie Cooper and Sydney Broderick led off the FSU second inning with a pair of singles and both came in to score later in the inning on an RBI single by Cali Harrod and a sacrifice fly by Anna Shelnutt.

The Seminoles scored two more in the top of the third as Dani Morgan led off with a walk and stole second base. An RBI single from Alex Powers brought in the first run of the inning, but she was thrown out trying to stretch it to second base.

Jessica Warren was hit by a pitch and Cooper drew a walk. A groundout moved both into scoring position and a wild pitch from Canisius pitcher Erika Mackie allowed Warren to score.

Canisius cut the lead to 5-1 in the bottom of the fourth as Samantha Sharkey led off the inning with the first hit of the game for the Golden Griffins. A wild pitch by FSU starter Jessica Burroughs allowed her to move to second and a single by Lauren Castro brought in their only run of the game.

The Noles brought eight batters to the plate in the fifth inning, led off by a bunt single from Morgan. Powers reached on a fielder’s choice and was pinch run for by Korina Rosario and the junior came in to score on Warren’s third triple of the season.

Cooper made it 7-1 FSU with a sacrifice fly to center and after singles from Leslie Farris and Carsyn Gordon, Harrod drove in her second run of the game on an RBI single to left.

Cassidy Davis entered to pitch for the Noles, ending Burroughs’ day in the circle. Burroughs improved to 13-1 on the year, allowing just two hits and one run in 4.0 innings with zero walks and nine strikeouts.

After a scoreless bottom of the fifth, the Seminoles brought in a run in the top of the sixth to give FSU an eight-run lead. Klaevemann led off the inning with a double to center and moved to third on a single by Powers. Warren later walked, but ball four was a wild pitch to score Klaevemann.

Davis closed out the game, pitching a scoreless sixth, giving up a leadoff walk but retiring the next three batters to secure the 9-1 victory. Davis gave up zero hits in her 2.0 innings, with one walk and two strikeouts.

Mackie (4-5) took the loss for the Golden Griffins, allowing 11 hits and nine runs in her 5.1 innings with four walks and three strikeouts. Lauren Castro retired both batters she faced in the sixth inning.

The Seminoles scored in the top of the first of the second game of the day against Florida Gulf Coast. Morgan drew a walk and moved to second on a single by Warren. Cooper gave FSU a 1-0 lead with an RBI single to left.

FGCU threatened in the bottom of the first inning, getting the first two batters on with a single by Kelsey Huff and a walk by Natalie Lopez. FSU’s Meghan King got out of the inning unscathed, retiring the next three batters.

The Noles tacked on two runs in the second inning with Harrod’s fourth home run of the season, a two-run shot to bring in Gordon who led off the inning with a walk.

A nine-run third inning for the Noles broke open the game to give FSU a 12-0 lead. Warren led off the inning with a single as the first 10 batters reached base safely in the inning. Cooper followed with a single and Broderick drove an RBI double into the left field corner.

Gordon walked and Harrod drove in her fourth RBI of the game on a two-run single to right. Zoe Casas made it 8-0 Seminoles with a two-run double into the gap in left center. Klaevemann hit an infield single, stole second and Morgan loaded the bases with a walk.

Powers brought in another run with a walk and Warren hit her second single of the inning into right field, scoring a run to make it 10-0. Cooper hit a sacrifice fly to left for the first out of the inning and Gordon later hit an RBI single to right to give the Noles a 12-0 lead.

King had an extremely efficient outing in the circle, tossing just four pitches in the second inning and 10 in the third, before being replaced by Tessa Daniels to start the bottom of the fourth. King (11-0) gave up just two hits and one walk with one strikeout in her 3.0 innings of shutout softball.

Daniels opened the FGCU fourth with a strikeout, but three walks loaded the bases with two outs in the inning. Daniels left them all stranded, inducing a groundout to Farris at short to end the inning.

Broderick hit a solo home run to lead off the top of the fifth inning, her second of the season and 19th of her career, to give the Noles a 13-0 lead.

FSU’s Farris made a diving stop at short for the first out of the fifth, and an FSU throwing error allowed a runner to get to second with one out. An RBI single by Racquel Fournet drove in a run, and after a fielder’s choice and a single, the Eagles had runners on first and second with two outs.

Daniels closed out the game with a strikeout, her second of the game. She tossed 2.0 innings, giving up two hits, one run, with three walks and two strikeouts.

FGCU starter Gabbee Draney (0-1) gave up eight runs on eight hits in 2.0 innings, issuing three walks and recording three strikeouts. Morgan White pitched the final 3.0 innings, allowing five hits and five runs with five walks and a strikeout.

No. 1 Seminoles Shutout Irish, 6-0.
Florida State takes game one of the series, 6-0, over Notre Dame in game one of the series.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Wearing green on St. Patrick's Day may have provided luck to people elsewhere, but at JoAnne Graf Field on Friday night, the team in green was unable to get a runner to third base as No. 1 Florida State (26-1-1, 7-0 ACC) posted a 6-0 shutout of Notre Dame (12-11, 1-3 ACC) to open the three-game conference series.

"It was nice to get off to a good start in this series," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "One of our goals is to win every conference series and to get game one on our side puts us in a good position to do that the rest of the weekend. We did a good job today offensively, as well as with our pitching and defense. Definitely nice to be back home in this beautiful weather in front of our great fans."

The Noles jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning as Morgan Klaevemann led off with a bunt single. The base hit extended her team-high hitting streak to nine games and she reached base for the 13th straight game.

Klaevemann stole second and moved to third on a fly out by Dani Morgan. Alex Powers walked and stole second, and Jessica Warren recorded her fifth sacrifice fly of the season to give the Noles the lead.

FSU scored again in the second inning on a solo home run by Cali Harrod, her fifth home run of the season. Harrod has 23 hits on the season, with 13 going for extra bases on five doubles, three triples and five home runs.

Notre Dame got its first base hit of the game against FSU starter Meghan King with two outs in the third inning, as Karley Wester slapped a single to short. FSU's Harrod made a diving stop on a ball hit by Ali Wester and flipped to Ellie Cooper at second to end the inning.

The Noles added to their lead in the fourth inning as Zoe Casas singled to left and was pinch-run for by Korina Rosario. A walk to Klaevemann was followed by a two-RBI double by Powers to make it 4-0 Seminoles. Warren launched her seventh home run of the season to bring in two more runs for a 6-0 advantage.

It is the 16th time this season that Florida State has scored at least four runs in an inning, and FSU has now scored at least one run in 73 of 160 offensive innings this year.

Powers hit another double in the sixth inning to extend her nation-leading doubles total to 13 on the season.

King improved to 12-0 and tossed her second complete-game shutout of the season, scattering just three hits over 7.0 innings with four strikeouts and zero walks. No Irish runner reached third base in the game and FSU's Broderick threw out ND's Karley Wester at second on a steal attempt in the top of the sixth inning.

Notre Dame's Rachel Nasland (6-5) gave up six runs over 4.0 innings, with six hits, four walks and three strikeouts. Caitlyn Brooks tossed the final 2.0 innings for the Irish, allowing one hit and a walk.

Another Shutout For No. 1 FSU Over Notre Dame.
The Seminoles blanked the Irish, 6-0, on Saturday afternoon.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Recording a shutout for the 14th time this season, No. 1 Florida State (27-1-1, 8-0 ACC) posted a 6-0 win over Notre Dame (12-12, 1-4 ACC) on Saturday afternoon, matching the score from Friday night as the Seminoles earned series victory over the Irish.

FSU's Jessica Burroughs (14-1) gave up just four hits and one walk in the complete game victory, recording 10 strikeouts. The redshirt senior pitcher entered the weekend ranked sixth in the NCAA in strikeouts and increased her season total to 134.

"Another solid day at the park," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Jessica had the curveball moving today and our defense made some nice plays on some well-hit balls. Offensively, it took us a while to find our rhythm, but that is what we always talk about with trusting the process and playing pitch-by-pitch and at bat-by-at bat. The more you stay in it and compete and focus on the next one, instead of worrying about the last one, the more likely you are to see success. Now we'll go back and make some adjustments to try and close out the series tomorrow."

Florida State scored again in the first inning, doing so for the sixth time in the last seven games, taking an early 1-0 lead on an RBI triple by Jessica Warren. Dani Morgan reached on a hit-by-pitch and came in to score on Warren's fourth triple of the season.

The Seminoles loaded the bases in the third inning on a walk by Anna Shelnutt, a bunt single by Morgan Klaevemann and a walk to Warren, but all three were left stranded.

The Irish got their first baserunner on an infield single by Karley Wester in the top of the fourth inning. A single by Ali Wester and an intentional walk to Morgan Reed loaded the bases with one out. Burroughs got out of the jam with a pair of strikeouts.

Klaevemann led off the Seminole fifth inning with a walk and Morgan followed with a single through the left side. Alex Powers made it 2-0 FSU with an RBI single back up the middle to score Klaevemann.

Ellie Cooper drove in another run on an infield single. Cooper later stole second and a walk to Sydney Broderick loaded the bases. Cali Harrod made it 4-0 FSU with a RBI single to center.

The Noles brought in two more runs in the sixth for the final 6-0 score. Klaevemann walked and stole second, but ended up on third after a Notre Dame throwing error. Morgan drove in her 17th RBI of the season on a single to left field. A walk to Powers was followed by an RBI single by Warren, her second RBI of the day.

ND's Katie Beriont (2-5) took the loss, giving up three runs on five hits with three walks and two strikeouts in 4.0 innings. Caitlyn Brooks allowed three runs in 1.1 innings with four hits and three walks, while Sara White pitched the final 0.2 innings for the Irish, allowing a hit and a walk with a strikeout.

No. 1 FSU Remains Undefeated In ACC With 16-0 Win Over ND.
The Seminoles post a 16-0 victory in five innings over Notre Dame on Sunday to improve to 9-0 in the conference this season.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Posting its third consecutive sweep of a conference opponent this season, No. 1 Florida State (28-1-1, 9-0 ACC) remained undefeated in ACC play with a 16-0 win in five innings against Notre Dame (12-13, 1-5 ACC) on Sunday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field.

Ten different players scored a run and nine different Seminoles drove in an RBI on Sunday as FSU has won its last 11 conference games, dating back to the 2016 season. Overall, the Noles have won 92 of their last 102 ACC games (.902) as Florida State has earned the regular season conference title in each of the last four seasons.

The Noles closed out their nine-game spring break schedule with a 9-0 record, outscoring their opponents - Virginia Tech, Florida Gulf Coast, Canisius and Notre Dame - by a combined score of 87-9. FSU hit .415 as a team with 29 extra-base hits, while the Seminole pitching staff recorded 61 strikeouts and limited opponents to a .195 batting average.

"I thought we had some very intentional at-bats today," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We've been doing a good job of learning what each of us needs to do individually on making adjustments game-to-game, and it was awesome to be able to do that today.

"I've loved the consistency out of our pitching staff, not just today or this weekend, but all year long. They are very present and JB and Meg have been doing a great job and letting Cassidy know what it is all about, and then we have Tessa and Abby as well. They know they have to be there for the team and I am proud of how they've done that so far."

The Noles put the game out of reach from the get-go, scoring 11 runs in the bottom of the first inning as 17 batters came to the plate in the frame. Morgan Klaevemann walked twice, Dani Morgan was hit by a pitch twice and Jessica Warren opened the scoring with an RBI single. Additional walks to Sydney Broderick, Cali Harrod, Warren and Ellie Cooper continued the inning, while RBI singles by Deja Bush, Alex Powers and Harrod added to the Seminole run total.

Notre Dame brought in three pitchers in the inning as Caitlyn Brooks pitched just 0.1 of an inning, giving up four runs, two earned on a hit and two walks, taking the loss to move to 4-2 on the season. Rachel Nasland faced 11 batters but only retired one, allowing seven unearned runs to score on three hits and four walks without a strikeout. Katie Beriont got the Irish out of the inning, inducing a groundout to the first batter she faced.

Florida State brought in three more in the second inning as Bush led off with her second single of the game. She was retired as Klaevemann reached on a fielder's choice, but Powers made it 13-0 with her fourth home run of the season to right field. Warren immediately followed with her eighth HR of the year to make it 14-0 Noles.

FSU's Meghan King faced just 11 batters in her 3.0 innings to get the win and move to 13-0 on the season. She allowed just one hit and zero walks with a strikeout as Cassidy Davis entered to pitch the fourth inning.

The Irish got a runner to third in the fourth as Morgan Reed led off with a double and moved up on a passed ball. A walk to Brooks put runners on the corners, but Davis got out of the inning with a strikeout to Melissa Rochford and Katie Marino lining into a double play.

Freshman Anna Shelnutt produced the 16-0 final score by launching her first career home run to right field in the bottom of the fourth inning, scoring Warren who had reached base earlier in the inning on her fourth double of the year. The Noles loaded the bases later in the inning on a single by Davis and walks to Zoe Casas and Sabrina Stutsman, but all three would be left stranded.

Notre Dame threatened to break up the shutout in the fifth as Karley and Ali Wester, along with Kimmy Sullivan, hit a trio of two-out infield singles to load the bases. FSU's Davis closed out the game by getting Reed to fly out to Korina Rosario in left field.

Davis gave up four hits with a walk and two strikeouts in her 2.0 shutout innings of relief.

ND's Beriont allowed five runs on six hits with a walk and a strikeout in 2.2 innings, while Sara White tossed the final 0.2 innings of the game for the Irish, allowing a hit and two walks.

Five Extra-Base Hits Carries No. 1 Noles Over Knights.
Florida State shutout UCF, 4-0, on Wednesday evening.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In a quick, seven-inning game that lasted just an hour and 20 minutes, No. 1 Florida State (29-1-1) posted its fourth shutout in a row, defeating UCF (15-13) by a score of 4-0 on Wednesday night at the UCF Softball Complex.

The Seminoles tallied eight hits in the win - five that went for extra bases on three doubles, a triple and a home run - as FSU increased its slugging percentage to .548. Florida State entered the game ranked No. 10 in the nation in the category.

"Nice win today," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Both JB and Meghan had a great day in the circle and our defense helped keep the shutout. Alea White pitched well for UCF, but we kept working and battling and putting good swings on the ball and were able get the win. A solid performance to open the road trip and we'll look to keep it going up at Virginia this weekend."

The Seminoles opened the scoring in the second inning as sophomore Cali Harrod drove a two-out triple to right center. Senior Ellie Cooper added an extra-base hit of her own, lining a double to left to make it 1-0 FSU. Sophomore Carsyn Gordon followed with an RBI single to right on the first pitch of her at bat to extend the Seminole lead to 2-0.

The pair of two-out runs increased Florida State's total of two-out RBI to 61 through the first 31 games of the season.

UCF got a pair of runners on in the bottom of the second with one-out singles from Cassady Brewer and Willow Kalinen. FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs got out of the jam with a strikeout and a fly out to left field.

Meghan King came in to pitch for the Seminoles in the third inning and gave up a leadoff single to Autumn Gillespie. A flyout and a groundout allowed FSU's Sydney Broderick to end the inning by throwing Gillespie out at second on a steal attempt.

Broderick carried that momentum into the FSU fourth inning, lining a leadoff double to left for her fifth double of the season. After a walk to Gordon, Zoe Casas hit a single to center, but a baserunning miscommunication resulted in the final out of the inning.

King tossed a perfect 1-2-3 inning in the UCF fourth, fifth and sixth innings, increasing her season total to 30 innings where she has retired the opponents in order.

FSU's Gordon hit a one-out double to center in the seventh inning and Zoe Casas extended the Seminole lead to 4-0 with her second home run of the season.

UCF's Brewer singled with two outs in the seventh, snapping King's streak of retiring 13 batters in a row. The redshirt sophomore closed out the game with a pop out to Cooper at second.

King remained unbeaten on the season, improving to 14-0 on the year, giving up just two hits without a walk and three strikeouts over the final 5.0 innings of the game. Burroughs matched King with two hits, three strikeouts and zero walks in her two inning start.

UCF's Alea White (8-8) gave up four runs on eight hits in 7.0 innings. The freshman walked one and recorded three strikeouts.

No. 1 FSU Opens UVA Series with 13-1 Win
The Seminoles improve to 10-0 in the ACC with a five-inning win over the Cavaliers.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Continuing its undefeated start in ACC play, No. 1 Florida State (30-1-1, 10-0 ACC) recorded a 13-1 win in five innings on the road at Virginia (11-18, 2-8 ACC) on Friday night.

The win gives head coach Lonni Alameda her 400th win at the helm of Florida State. She has posted a record of 400-131-1 (.753%) in the Garnet and Gold, and has an overall coaching record of 557-289-2 (.658%).

"The bottom of our lineup showed up for us today," said Alameda. "You could see Virginia's plan was to try and not let the top of our lineup do damage, and our 7-8-9 hitters came up big. Jessica Burroughs pitched well and UVA's hitters were able to get on a couple of times, but our pitching and defense kept them off the scoreboard. It will be interesting to see how both teams make adjustments for tomorrow."

FSU's Burroughs got out to yet another hot start in the circle, tossing a scoreless first inning with a trio of strikeouts. It is the seventh time in her 16 starts this season that Burroughs has struck out the side in the first inning.

The Seminoles got on the board in the second inning as Cali Harrod led off with a single to center and stole second base. A sacrifice bunt by Ellie Cooper moved her to third and Carsyn Gordon's RBI single to right gave FSU a 1-0 lead.

Zoe Casas followed with a double down the left field line, bringing in Gordon on the play. Morgan Klaevemann recorded her second base hit and second stolen base of the game to allow Dani Morgan to extend the FSU lead to 3-0 with a sacrifice fly to right field.

Jessica Warren led off the FSU third inning with her second walk of the game and Sydney Broderick crushed the first pitch of her at bat over the wall to center for her third home run of the season to make it 5-0 FSU. The Ashburn, Va., native has enjoyed playing in her home state this season, as two of her three HRs this year have come in Virginia as she hit a solo home run at Virginia Tech on March 10.

Virginia made a pitching change to replace starter Lexi Mettler, bringing in Allison Davis, and Harrod continued the inning and hit her seventh double of the season to centerfield. Gordon drove in her second RBI of the game on a single up the middle to make it 6-0 FSU.

Singles by Casas and Klaevemann, along with a walk to Morgan loaded the bases later in the inning. Alex Powers made it 9-0 Seminoles as her fly ball to center was misplayed, clearing the bases.

Virginia got a run back in the bottom of the third as Madison Labshere led off with a double to right center. A one-out RBI single from Katie Park got the Cavaliers on the board and snapped FSU's streak of 29.0 innings without giving up a run.

The Noles brought in four more runs in the top of the fourth to extend the lead to 13-1. Broderick led off the inning with a single and was pinch-run for by Deja Bush. Bush stole second and came in to score on a single up the middle by Cooper.

Gordon drove in a run for her third consecutive at bat, launching her first home run of the season over the wall in left center to make it 12-1. Klaevemann recorded her fourth hit of the day on a triple to left and scored on an RBI single by Morgan. The four-hit day from Klaevemann set a career high.

Cassidy Davis came in to pitch the final inning for FSU and retired all three batters she faced. Burroughs (15-1) scattered seven hits in the win, tossing 4.0 innings with seven strikeouts, giving up one run and zero walks.

UVA's Mettler (3-3) gave up five runs on six hits with two walks. Davis pitched 1.0 innings, allowing four runs and four hits, while Lacy Smith pitched the last 2.0 innings for the Cavaliers, allowing four runs on five hits with three strikeouts.

No. 1 Noles Shutout Cavaliers.
Florida State takes game two of the series with an 8-0 victory in six innings over Virginia.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Earning its 17th shutout of the season and the 12th run-rule victory of 2017, No. 1 Florida State (31-1-1, 11-0 ACC) blanked Virginia (11-19, 2-9 ACC) by a score of 8-0, in six innings, on Saturday afternoon at The Park.

The Noles have won each of their last 13 ACC games, which is tied for the fourth-longest winning streak against conference opponents in school history. FSU earned 14 ACC wins in a row in 2015 and 2014, and a school-record 23 straight from 2001 to 2004.

"Quality work out of the team today," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Virginia is a team that competes and battles and didn't give us many opportunities. However, we were able to take advantage of the ones that were there to get some runs on our side of the column, and also make some quality pitches and defensive plays to keep them off the board. Hopefully the rain stays away tomorrow and we can wrap up this series before heading home."

Virginia got a pair of runners on in the first inning on a one-out single by Katie Park and a double by Kaitlin Fitzgerald. FSU's Meghan King got out of the inning after a pop out and recording her first strikeout of the game.

Florida State got on the scoreboard in the top of the second inning, led off by a four-pitch walk by Jessica Warren. Sydney Broderick followed with a single to right and a walk by Ellie Cooper loaded the bases.

Carsyn Gordon continued to drive in runs for the Noles, lining a two-run single to center to give FSU a 2-0 lead. It marked her sixth RBI so far of the UVA series. Zoe Casas grounded out to second base, but it was able to score Cooper from third to increase the lead to 3-0.

The Seminoles brought in four runs in the top of the third to extend their lead to 7-0. Alex Powers started the inning with a single to right, followed by a single from Warren and a walk to Broderick to load the bases.

Cali Harrod drove in a run on a walk and Ellie Cooper hit her fifth sacrifice fly of the season to make it 5-0 FSU. Walks to Gordon and Casas brought in another run and Sabrina Stutsman added a sacrifice fly of her own to create the 7-0 Seminole advantage.

Virginia threatened in the bottom of the fifth inning as Erika Osherow and Ashlee Davis led off the inning with a hit-by-pitch and a single, respectively. A pop out and a single by Katie Park loaded the bases for the Cavaliers, but the Noles got out unscathed after another pop out and a groundout to end the inning.

Dani Morgan led off the FSU sixth inning, crushing the first pitch of her at bat over the wall in left for her second home run of the season to give the Seminoles an 8-0 lead.

FSU's King (15-0) scattered five hits in her 5.0 innings of work, recording three strikeouts without allowing a walk. Cassidy Davis closed out the game in the circle for the Noles, tossing a scoreless sixth inning and ending the game with a strikeout.

UVA starter Osherow (6-12) gave up six runs on four hits with four walks and two strikeouts in 3.0 innings. Lexi Mettler worked 2.2 innings and gave up a run on three hits and a walk, while Lacy Smith pitched 0.1 innings and allowed three walks and a run.

Jessica Burroughs Records No-Hitter As FSU Sweeps UVA.
The redshirt senior posts the fourth no-hitter of her career as No. 1 Florida State earns a 10-0 win over Virginia.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Redshirt senior Jessica Burroughs recorded the fourth no-hitter of her career, while the Seminole offense combined for 10 runs on 11 hits as No. 1 Florida State (32-1-1, 12-0 ACC) posted a 10-0 win in six innings against Virginia (11-20, 2-10 ACC) to complete the season sweep on Sunday afternoon.

Burroughs allowed just two baserunners in the entire game on a hit-by-pitch in the first inning and a walk in the fifth inning. She posted 11 strikeouts in her 6.0 innings pitched, surpassing the 10-strikeout mark for the fifth time this season. She improved to 16-1 on the season with a 0.70 ERA and 155 strikeouts as opponents are batting .134 against her on the year.

"Great way to wrap up the weekend," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We've been working on some new things with JB, and she did a great job of executing those today. Throughout the lineup we took quality at-bats and got a lot of experience for our freshmen as well. Ready to head home and get some rest and prepare for Pitt next week."

Florida State jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the first inning on a three-run home run by Jessica Warren, her ninth HR of the season. Morgan Klaevemann led off the game with a single through the left side and Dani Morgan was hit by a pitch, and both came in to score when Warren hit a ball off the scoreboard beyond the wall in right field.

Jessica Burroughs again dominated in the first inning, striking out the side to open the game for the eighth time in her 17 starts this season.

Another three-run inning in the FSU second extended the lead to 6-0. Klaevemann drove a one-out single back up the middle and stole second base, marking her 100th career stolen base.

She came in to score on Alex Powers' 14th double of the season, as she drove a ball into the left field corner. Powers entered the week leading the country in doubles and now sits in a tie for ninth in a single season in FSU history, despite only playing 34 games so far.

Walks to Warren and Sydney Broderick loaded the bases and Harrod hit a two-out, two-run single through the left side to make it 6-0 FSU.

Burroughs continued to miss Virginia bats, recording two strikeouts each in the second, third and fourth innings as she retired the Cavaliers in order in each frame.

Carsyn Gordon hit her second home run of the weekend, a solo home run, in the top of the fifth to give the Noles a 7-0 lead.

A walk to UVA's Iyana Hughes to lead off the fifth inning ended Burroughs' streak of retiring 12 consecutive batters, but she retired the next three batters on two pop outs and a strikeout to end the inning.

FSU closed out its scoring with a three-run sixth inning as Powers led off with a single up the middle. Warren reached on a UVA fielding error and Broderick drove in a run with an RBI single to center. Warren tried to score from third on a wild pitch, but it took a fortunate bounce for Virginia and she was thrown out at the plate for the first out of the inning.

Harrod hit her fifth triple of the season to extend FSU's lead to 9-0 to bring in Broderick. Cassidy Davis made it 10-0, driving in a run as she reached on a UVA error. Leslie Farris and Sabrina Stutsman walked in the inning, but would be left stranded.

It marked the 39th time this season that Florida State has scored at least three runs in an inning.

UVA's Erika Osherow (6-13) tossed 5.1 innings, giving up 10 runs on 11 hits with five walks and one strikeout. Allison Davis pitched the final 0.2 innings, issuing just a walk in her three batters faced.

Eight-Run Fifth Carries Noles In Win Over Pitt.
Jessica Warren's second grand slam of the season secured a 14-3 win in five innings for No. 1 FSU over Pitt on Friday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Closing out the game with a bang, No. 1 Florida State (33-1-1, 13-0 ACC) used an eight-run fifth inning, capped by a grand slam by Jessica Warren, to defeat Pitt (17-14, 1-9 ACC) by a score of 14-3 on Friday night at JoAnne Graf Field.

Every offensive player in the game for Florida State either scored a run or recorded an RBI in the run-rule victory, including three players with multiple RBIs and four with multiple runs scored.

The win is FSU's 19th-straight victory, which is the eighth-longest winning streak in school history. The Seminoles also currently hold a 24-game unbeaten streak, dating back to February 23, which sits fourth all-time in consecutive games without a loss.

"A complete team performance tonight," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We were seeing the ball well at the plate today and were able to execute some quality situations. We had a few base running errors, but we can learn from those and get better. JB had a great night and Pitt took advantage of a pitch for their home run, but she got refocused and closed the game out well.

"It was great to see so much pink in the stands tonight for our 'Paint It Pink' game. As much as we talk about these games as battles and challenges, softball is just a game and there are so many people that truly battle through so much more than we can understand. Hopefully we were able to do a little part tonight to bring awareness, support and love to those that are going through all kinds of cancer."

The Seminoles jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first as Morgan Klaevemann opened the game with a single down the left line. Warren later reached on a hit by a pitch and both came in to score on a two-RBI double by Sydney Broderick to left center. Cali Harrod closed out the scoring with an RBI single to centerfield.

It is the 18th time that the Seminoles have scored in the first inning, giving FSU 52 runs scored in the opening frame. It also marked the 40th time this season that Florida State has brought in at least three runs in an inning.

Pitt tied the game with three unearned runs in the top of the third inning. After a pair on infield pop outs, Erin Hershman reached on an FSU fielding error. Olivia Gray followed with Pitt's first hit of the game and Kaitlin Manuel drove in all three runs with a home run to right field.

The Noles regained the lead in the bottom of the third as Warren led off with a single and moved to second after a walk by Broderick. Carsyn Gordon made it 4-3 Seminoles with her 28th RBI of the season on a single to center.

Klaevemann posted a bunt single in the FSU fourth and Alex Powers gave Florida State a 6-3 lead with a home run to straightaway center.

An eight-run fifth inning secured the run-rule victory for the Noles. Broderick started things off with a walk and Harrod followed with a single. A groundout moved the runners up to second and third, and Ellie Cooper drove in a run on a fielder's choice to second base.

Zoe Casas almost perfectly matched Cooper's at bat, chopping one to second base and the throw home was unable to get Harrod at the plate to extend FSU's lead to 8-3. Anna Shelnutt put down an RBI bunt single to bring in another run, while Klaevemann loaded the bases with a single to right, her fourth base hit of the game.

Deja Bush came in to pinch-run for Shelnutt and Powers continued the scoring with an RBI single to right. Warren needed only one pitch to end the game, crushing the offering well beyond the wall in left center for her tenth home run, and second grand slam, of the season.

FSU's Jessica Burroughs gave up two hits and three unearned runs in 5.0 innings to improve to 17-1 on the year. She allowed just one walk and seven strikeouts in the game.

Pitt starter Sarah Dawson (2-2) pitched 4.0 innings and gave up six runs on eight hits with two walks and zero strikeouts. Brittany Knight entered to pitch the fifth inning and surrendered eight runs with five hits and a walk.

Seminoles Take Series With 12-4 Win Over Pitt.
No. 1 Florida State comes from behind to earn a 12-4 win in six innings against Pitt on Saturday afternoon.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Extending its winning streak to 20 consecutive games, No. 1 Florida State (34-1-1, 14-0 ACC) posted its fifth-straight run-rule victory on Saturday afternoon with a 12-4 win in six innings over Pitt (17-14, 1-9 ACC). The 20 wins in a row is tied for sixth all-time in FSU history.

The Noles trailed for the first time in their last 117 innings, but scored nine runs in the final three innings to remain unbeaten in their last 38 series against ACC opponents, dating back to the beginning of the 2013 season. FSU has won 97 of its last 107 regular season conference games over that span.

Senior Sydney Broderick set a career high with five RBI on the day, while freshman Dani Morgan came off the bench and batted 3-for-3 with a single, double and a triple.

"Today was a battle," Said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We got out to a lead, Pitt kept fighting to get in front and we continued to stay in it and trust the work we have put in and it paid off. Defensively, Warren and Cali were outstanding on the left side, and the whole team made plays to keep Pitt off the bases as best as we could. Now the chess match of the series comes in tomorrow where both teams have seen a lot of pitchers and hitters and it will be a game of who can make the most adjustments."

Much like in Friday's series opener, the Seminoles took a quick 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. Morgan Klaevemann led off the game with a four-pitch walk and stole second base. Jessica Warren drove in the first run with an RBI double to right field for her 19th extra-base hit of the season.

Broderick brought in a run on an RBI single up the middle and Cali Harrod followed with a single of her own. Ellie Cooper made it 3-0 Noles with a two-out RBI single to left field.

Also much like Friday's game, Pitt scored its first runs in the top of the third inning. The first five batters of the inning reached base, including a walk to Alexee Haynes and RBIs from Olivia Gray and Kaitlin Manuel to cut the lead to 3-2. A sacrifice fly from McKayla Taylor and an RBI double by Giorgiana Zeremenko gave the Panthers a 4-3 lead.

It marked the first walk allowed by FSU starter Meghan King in 24.2 innings, as well as the first run surrendered by King in her last 26.2 innings.

Florida State regained the lead in the fourth inning as Morgan started things off with a single to left. An infield single from Klaevemann and a walk to Warren loaded the bases, and Broderick drove all three in with a two-out double to center to give the Noles a 6-4 lead.

A five-run fifth broke the game open for Florida State as back-to-back doubles from Cooper and Morgan brought in the first run of the inning. Consecutive singles by Zoe Casas and Klaevemann extended the FSU lead to 8-4. Alex Powers loaded the bases with a single up the middle, while a single by Warren, a walk to Broderick and a sacrifice fly by Harrod each drove in a run for the 11-4 advantage.

Cassidy Davis entered the game to pitch for FSU in the top of the sixth and gave up a pair of singles to the first two batters she faced. The Seminole defense had her back as a sharp grounder to Warren at third started a triple play, as she stepped on the bag, fired to Cooper at second, who completed it to Gordon at first.

The Noles needed just two batters to close out the game in the bottom of the sixth inning as Cooper lined a single into left and Morgan brought her in to score on a triple to right field for the 12-4 final score.

King improved to 16-0 on the year and scattered six hits in 5.0 innings, giving up four runs, two earned, with a walk and two strikeouts.

Pitt starter Sarah Dawson tossed 2.2 innings with eight hits and four runs with three walks and a strikeout in a no-decision, while reliever Brittany Knight took the loss and moved to 8-8 after allowing eight runs on eight hits with two walks and zero strikeouts in 2.1 relief innings.

No. 1 FSU Extends Unbeaten Streak To 26 Games.
The Seminoles sweep Pitt with a 5-0 win on Sunday to remain perfect in conference play.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - For the 19th time this season, the Seminoles have held their opponent without a run as No. 1 Florida State (35-1-1, 15-0 ACC) completed the sweep of Pitt (17-15, 1-10 ACC) with a 5-0 victory on Sunday at JoAnne Graf Field.

The pitching trio of Jessica Burroughs, Meghan King and Cassidy Davis faced just two batters over the minimum, surrendering just two hits and a walk as the last 17 batters were retired in order, including a double play in the fifth inning.

The win extended FSU's unbeaten streak to 26 games, the winning streak to 21 games and marked the 17th-straight win in regular season ACC games.

"I'm excited with how we are swinging the bats right now and all of the adjustments in the circle," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "It is always good to keep learning the game and growing the game within yourself and the team. Different people are stepping up and doing different things, and that's huge for us."

Once again, Burroughs made quick work of her opponent in the first inning, striking out the side to open the game for the ninth time this season in 19 starts.

Pitt got a runner to third base with one out in the second inning after Erin Hershman hit a double and advanced on an FSU throwing error. Burroughs left her stranded there after two consecutive strikeouts.

The Noles got on the board in the third inning with Jessica Warren's 11th home run of the season, a two-run shot onto the road beyond the wall in left to score Alex Powers, who walked earlier in the inning.

Warren now has 46 RBI on the season, while the combined scoring output of FSU's 37 opponents this season is just 44 runs and 41 RBI.

After a leadoff walk in the Pitt fifth inning by Burroughs, King came out to relieve her teammate in the circle. The redshirt sophomore needed just four pitches to end the inning on a strikeout of Gabrielle Fredericks and getting Alexee Haynes to ground into a double play.

Another Seminole long ball extended the lead to 5-0 FSU in the sixth inning as Ellie Cooper launched a home run to right field. Dani Morgan reached on a fielder's choice and Cali Harrod walked, and all came in to score on Cooper's first HR of the season.

Burroughs came back in to pitch the start of the seventh and retired the first two batters on a ground out and a strikeout, before giving the pitching duties to Davis while the redshirt senior went out to play right field for the first time in her career. Davis retired the only batter she faced on a groundout to third to end the game.

Burroughs (18-1) picked up the win, striking out nine in 4.2 shutout innings with two hits and a walk. King faced just five hitters, but created six outs, including a strikeout.

Pitt's Kayla Harris pitched all 6.0 innings for the Panthers and allowed five runs on six hits with four walks and two strikeouts.

FLORIDA STATE 18, SYRACUSE 9
04/08/2017, SYRACUSE, NY

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Seminoles Win Slugfest At Syracuse.
No. 1 Florida State earns an 18-9 win on Saturday to continue its undefeated start in ACC play.

SYRACUSE, NY - Crushing five home runs and driving in a season-high 18 runs, No. 1 Florida State (36-1-1, 16-0 ACC) earned an 18-9 win over Syracuse (19-13, 3-7 ACC) on Saturday afternoon in game one of the series. Senior Ellie Cooper led the team with five RBI, while redshirt senior Alex Powers and sophomore Carsyn Gordon each drove in four runs apiece.

The win is FSU's 18th consecutive win in conference play and the 14th-straight road win for the Noles.

"Crazy game today, but I loved to see the fight from this team," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We always talk about playing through adversity, and today we had plenty of it from the wind and cold and Syracuse putting a lot of balls in play. But at no point did our focus waver, nor did we lose trust in the person to our left and our right. A lot of positives from today, as well as a lot of things to work on, and it will be great to get after it again tomorrow."

The Seminoles jumped out to a quick lead in the first inning as Dani Morgan lined a single to left and came in to score on an RBI double by Jessica Warren. After Sydney Broderick reached on a fielding error by the SU shortstop, Alex Powers launched her sixth home run of the season deep to right field for a 4-0 Seminole lead.

Syracuse battled back to tie the game in their half of the first inning as the first three batters got on base on a trio of singles to make it a 4-1 game before Meghan King recorded the first out of the inning with a strikeout of Faith Cain. An RBI on a single from Rachel Burkhardt and a two-run double from Hannah Dossett brought the game square after the first inning.

Warren led off the FSU third inning with her 12th home run of the season, putting the Noles on top 5-4.

FSU scored seven runs in the fourth inning to extend the Seminole lead to 12-4. Morgan Klaevemann drew a walk, stole second and ended up on third after a Syracuse throwing error and Morgan drove in her first run of the game with a triple to center. Warren was hit by a pitch and a single by Broderick drove in another run.

Powers reached base on an error and a fielder's choice by Cali Harrod loaded the bases for Cooper with two outs. The Orange nearly got out of the inning with the score at 7-4, as Cooper popped into foul territory by third base, but the ball was dropped to continue her time at the plate. The senior made them pay with a grand slam to right, followed by a solo home run by Gordon to give FSU an eight-run lead after four innings.

Syracuse battled in the bottom of the fourth, bringing in three runs, but just one earned as FSU committed two errors in the inning to cut the lead to 12-7.

FSU added to their lead in the fifth as Klaevemann walked and Morgan hit her second RBI triple of the game. Powers made it 14-7 with an RBI groundout to the pitcher.

Syracuse scored a pair of runs in the fifth as Jessica Heese led off with a double and came in on a two-run home run by Alicia Hansen.

The Noles closed out the scoring with a four-run seventh, highlighted by Gordon's second home run of the game, a three-run shot to left field. Broderick, Harrod and Cooper also singled in the inning.

FSU's Cassidy Davis pitched a scoreless seventh to close out the game, allowing a base hit and recording a strikeout.

King (17-0) pitched 6.0 innings and allowed 14 hits and nine runs with seven earned. She surrendered three walks and recorded seven strikeouts.

No. 1 FSU Sweeps Syracuse To Remain Perfect In ACC.
The Seminoles earned a pair of wins on Sunday to improve to 18-0 in conference play.

SYRACUSE, NY - Showing why they entered the weekend with the nation's best batting average, No. 1 Florida State (38-1-1, 18-0 ACC) hit the ball all over the yard on Sunday in a doubleheader sweep of Syracuse (19-15, 3-9 ACC) to remain perfect in ACC play on the season. The Noles won the first game of the day 13-4 in five innings, and closed out the sweep with a 6-5 victory.

The Seminoles hit 11 home runs by six different players and 16 total extra-base hits on the weekend as FSU scored 37 runs in the three-game sweep. Florida State was consistent at the plate as well, scoring at least one run in 14 of the 19 innings in the series, including nine multi-run innings.

Jessica Warren carried the offense on Sunday, going 4-for-5 over both games with three home runs, a double, six runs scored and seven RBI. The junior third baseman leads the team with a .458 batting average, 15 home runs, 55 RBI and a 1.019 slugging percentage. Cali Harrod also hit a home run in each game on Sunday, including a go-ahead two-run HR in the top of the sixth of game two to give FSU a 6-5 lead.

The Noles now have 18 conference wins, which is tied for sixth-most in a single season in conference history. The mark is tied with the 2008 UNC and 2013 FSU teams, and trails only the 2014 FSU (24), 2016 FSU (21), 2015 FSU (20), 2010 Georgia Tech (19) and 2014 Virginia Tech (19) teams.

"Really proud of how we battled today," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "One of our goals every week is to win the series and just play the next game that is in front of us. None of our streaks or successes have come because we aimed to win 20 or 25 games in a row, they are because we focused on winning the next game, the next at bat, the next pitch. As you build up all those little wins, you can start to see the big wins happen. There is still plenty of room for us to grow and get better, and I'm excited to head down to Gainesville and play UF on Wednesday."

The Seminoles replicated their offense production in the top of the first inning in game one, launching a pair of two-run home runs to gain a quick 4-0 lead. Dani Morgan hit a single through the left side, and Warren deposited her 13th home run of the season into the trees beyond the wall in left. After a walk to Sydney Broderick, Harrod drove her sixth home run of the year to right field.

Ellie Cooper and Carsyn Gordon later walked in the inning, as well as a stolen base from Cooper, but both would be left stranded as the Noles brought nine batters to the plate in the inning.

Broderick extended the Seminole lead to 5-0 in the second inning with an RBI double to left center, scoring Morgan Klaevemann who drew a walk on 11 pitches to lead off the inning.

Harrod walked on four pitches to open the FSU third and stole second base. After a walk by Cooper, both of them stole a base to move into scoring position. Zoe Casas hit a sacrifice fly to left field to drive in Harrod and make it 6-0 Florida State.

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs got out to a hot start in the circle, holding the Orange without a hit until a two-out single in the bottom of the third inning by Sammy Fernandez.

The Noles pushed their advantage in the fourth inning as Warren led off with a walk and moved up to second base on a ground out. A two-out RBI double by Harrod, followed by an RBI single by Cooper gave the Noles an 8-0 lead.

Syracuse threatened in the fourth inning, getting runners to second and third with one out on a single and a double, but Burroughs kept the Orange scoreless with a strikeout and a fly out to end the inning.

The Seminoles brought in five runs in the top of the fifth to make it 13-0 FSU. Anna Shelnutt walked and was pinch-run for by Deja Bush. Bush stole second and came in to score on an RBI single by Klaevemann. An infield single by Morgan and a two-RBI double from Warren made it 11-0 FSU, while Broderick followed with a two-run home run to right center to close out the scoring.

Abby Evans made her first pitching appearance of the season to start the fifth inning and retired the first batter she faced on a line out to short. The next four Orange hitters reached base on two walks and two hits as Syracuse made it 13-1.

A sac fly, an FSU error and a single to left cut the lead to 13-4, before Evans ended the game with a strikeout.

Burroughs improved to 19-1 with her win in game one, giving up just three hits in 4.0 shutout innings with six strikeouts and zero walks.

Just like the first game of the day, Warren opened the scoring in game two with a two-run home run in the first inning, scoring Klaevemann who led off the game with a walk.

The Noles used their speed and aggression to plate another run in the top of the second inning. Harrod led off the inning with a walk, stole second and ended up on third after a Syracuse throwing error. A fly out to shallow right field by Carsyn Gordon was just deep enough to allow Harrod to tag from third and make it 3-0 FSU.

Warren continued to show off her power with her second home run of the game, and fourth of the series, adding to FSU's lead with a solo home run in the top of the third inning.

Syracuse took the lead in the bottom of the third, scoring five runs on a bases-loaded walk to Sydney O'Hara, an RBI groundout by Faith Cain and a three-run home run by Bryce Holmgren to go out in front by a score of 5-4.

Burroughs came in to relieve FSU starting pitcher Meghan King in the bottom of the fourth and struck out six of the first seven batters she faced.

The Seminoles regained the lead in the top of the sixth inning as Warren led off the inning with an intentional walk. Harrod drove her in with a two-out, two-run home run to right center to make it 6-5 Florida State.

Burroughs closed out the game, retiring the last nine batters she faced to win her 20th game of the season. She struck out nine in 4.0 innings, giving up just one hit and zero walks.

An infield single by Morgan and a two-RBI double from Warren made it 11-0 FSU, while Broderick followed with a two-run home run to right center to close out the scoring.

Abby Evans made her first pitching appearance of the season to start the fifth inning and retired the first batter she faced on a line out to short. The next four Orange hitters reached base on two walks and two hits as Syracuse made it 13-1.

A sac fly, an FSU error and a single to left cut the lead to 13-4, before Evans ended the game with a strikeout.

Burroughs improved to 19-1 with her win in game one, giving up just three hits in 4.0 shutout innings with six strikeouts and zero walks.

Just like the first game of the day, Warren opened the scoring in game two with a two-run home run in the first inning, scoring Klaevemann who led off the game with a walk.

The Noles used their speed and aggression to plate another run in the top of the second inning. Harrod led off the inning with a walk, stole second and ended up on third after a Syracuse throwing error. A fly out to shallow right field by Carsyn Gordon was just deep enough to allow Harrod to tag from third and make it 3-0 FSU.

Warren continued to show off her power with her second home run of the game, and fourth of the series, adding to FSU's lead with a solo home run in the top of the third inning.

Syracuse took the lead in the bottom of the third, scoring five runs on a bases-loaded walk to Sydney O'Hara, an RBI groundout by Faith Cain and a three-run home run by Bryce Holmgren to go out in front by a score of 5-4.

Burroughs came in to relieve FSU starting pitcher Meghan King in the bottom of the fourth and struck out six of the first seven batters she faced.

The Seminoles regained the lead in the top of the sixth inning as Warren led off the inning with an intentional walk. Harrod drove her in with a two-out, two-run home run to right center to make it 6-5 Florida State.

Burroughs closed out the game, retiring the last nine batters she faced to win her 20th game of the season. She struck out nine in 4.0 innings, giving up just one hit and zero walks.

No. 1 FSU Falls To No. 3 Florida, 1-0, On Walk-Off.
A two-out single in the seventh inning pushed the Gators to a 1-0 win on Wednesday night.

GAINESVILLE, FL - Two top-three teams, a sold-out stadium and a long-standing rivalry lived up to the hype as it took a two-out single in the bottom of the seventh inning to give No. 3 Florida (38-2) a 1-0 victory over No. 1 Florida State (38-2-1) in front of a record crowd of 2,574 at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium in the opening game of the 2017 Fresh From Florida Sunshine Showdown.

"What an awesome atmosphere, we talked about this game being a postseason feel and it definitely was tonight," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "This rivalry has always been so great. The kids fought and we put ourselves in position and made a run at it in the first inning. Really proud of JB tonight. This is going to be huge for us down the line, and there is nothing to hang our heads about. Right now it is all about going up to South Carolina and getting after business this weekend."

The Noles had three hits in the top of the first inning, but were unable to bring a run across to open the game. Morgan Klaevemann led off with a single up the middle, and attempted to steal second on what was a strikeout to Alex Powers, but was judged to have left the base early.

Jessica Warren later drove a two-out double to left center, but was thrown out at the plate to end the inning after a single to left by Ellie Cooper.

Klaevemann added a two-out single in the top of the third and stole second, but would be left stranded.

Seminole starter Jessica Burroughs allowed just one hit through the first 5.1 innings, recording five strikeouts before giving up a single to Janelle Wheaton.

The Gators were able to get runners to second and third with two outs in the fifth inning, on a walk, a hit-by-pitch and a wild pitch, but a fly out to left by Kayli Kvistad ended the inning.

Florida was able to get another runner to third base in the sixth inning following a one-out single by Wheaton. A ground out and a wild pitch moved her 60 feet away from the plate, but a fly out to left ended the inning.

Burroughs got the first out of the Florida seventh on a groundout to short, before being relieved by Meghan King. Justine McLean dropped a bunt single and moved up to second on a ground out. Kvistad ended the game with an RBI single to right.

The run ended a scoreless streak of 16 innings in the series in games played in Gainesville, as neither FSU or Florida had scored a run since the fifth inning of the game in 2015.

Florida pitchers Delanie Gourley and Kelly Barnhill combined to retire 13 of the last 14 Seminole hitters, giving up just a walk to Powers in the sixth inning. Barnhill (16-0) struck out three in 2.0 no-hit innings, giving up one walk. Gourley allowed four hits and struck out seven, without a walk, in 5.0 innings.

King earned her first loss of the season, moving to 17-1 on the year, giving up two hits and a walk in 0.1 innings. Burroughs tossed 6.1 shutout innings in the no decision, striking out five and allowing two hits and a walk.

Seminoles Fall On The Road At South Carolina.
Florida State drops the first game of the series at South Carolina, 7-2, on Friday.

COLUMBIA, SC - Dropping its second road game in a row, No. 1 Florida State (38-3-1) fell to South Carolina (24-18) by a score of 7-2 on Friday night at CSS Stadium at Beckham Field.

"Early in the game, we had a lot of at-'em balls, and we were striking the ball well today," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "And then they jump on the board and we weren't able to create anything after that. Our kids fought hard and I'm proud of them. That's what these games are for, to build our character and now we just have to bounce back tomorrow."

The Seminoles got on the board in the second inning, taking an early 1-0 lead on the Gamecocks. Cali Harrod led off with a walk and stole second on the first pitch to Ellie Cooper. The throw was off-line and bounced off Harrod and went into centerfield, rolling all the way to the warning track, allowing Harrod to score on the play.

Carsyn Gordon laced her fourth triple of the season to right field and Anna Shelnutt put Seminole runners on the corners with a four-pitch walk. Morgan Klaevemann later reached on a fielder's choice, as Gordon was retired at home.

South Carolina posted two hits in the bottom of the second inning, getting runners to second and third with two outs before Seminole starter Jessica Burroughs ended the threat with a strikeout.

The Gamecocks got the first two hitters on base in the fourth inning with a hit-by-pitch and a single, and a one-out home run by Tiara Duffy gave South Carolina a 3-1 lead.

Following a double by Cayla Drotar, FSU's Meghan King entered the game to pitch for Burroughs. Back-to-back singles, as well as a sacrifice fly gave the Gamecocks a 5-1 lead after four complete innings.

The Noles got a run back in the top of the fifth as Klaevemann opened the inning with a single, but was retired on a fielder's choice by Dani Morgan. A single by Jessica Warren and a hit-by-pitch to Sydney Broderick loaded the bases, and Alex Powers cut the lead to 5-2 with a sacrifice fly to right field. Harrod walked on four pitches to reload the bases, but a ground out left them stranded.

South Carolina quickly pushed its lead back out to 7-2 with a leadoff single in the fifth inning, followed by a two-run home run by Alyssa Vanderveer, prompting an FSU pitching change to bring in Cassidy Davis.

SC continued the inning getting a runner on base with an FSU fielding error, but a 5-4-3 double play sent her back to the dugout. After a pair of hits, Davis got out of the inning with no additional damage with a groundout.

The Noles got one runner each on base in the sixth and the seventh innings on a walk by Gordon and a hit-by-pitch to Warren, but were unable to push them in to score.

Burroughs (20-2) picked up her second loss of the year, allowing four runs on five hits with two strikeouts and zero walks over 3.1 innings. King tossed 0.2 innings of relief, surrendering three runs on four hits, while Davis pitched the final 2.0 innings of the game, walking one and allowing three hits.

No. 1 FSU Posts A 3-1 Win Over South Carolina.
The Seminoles take game two of the series with the Gamecocks on Saturday afternoon.

COLUMBIA, SC - Winning its 13th road game of the season, No. 1 Florida State (39-3-1) closed out the series at South Carolina (25-18) with a 3-1 victory on Saturday afternoon on Carolina Softball Stadium at Beckham Field.

"I was pleased with how we battled today," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Sometimes you can let failures and losses linger and continue to impact games moving forward and I thought we attacked today's game from a fresh perspective. Meghan did a great job for us in the circle and really pitched to our defense in a few situations. Offensively, we continued to hit the ball hard, and they played us well, but we were able to find a few gaps and get the win."

There was a lot of noise, but not a lot of scoring in the early innings on Saturday, as it took until the third inning for the Noles to post the first run of the game.

Jessica Warren lined a double to left center in the first inning, but would be left stranded. Dani Morgan flied out to the warning track and Cali Harrod hit a hard liner to left in a scoreless second inning for the Noles.

South Carolina managed to get a pair of runners on in the bottom of the second after a Seminole error with two outs and a base hit, but FSU starter Meghan King ended the inning with her third strikeout of the game.

Carsyn Gordon opened the FSU third inning with a walk and moved up to third on a single by Morgan Klaevemann. Gordon tried to score on a bunt by Ellie Cooper, but would be retired at the plate. A walk to Warren loaded the bases, and the Noles plated their first run of the game as SC's catcher Alyssa VanDerveer interfered with Sydney Broderick, allowing Klaevemann to score.

A trio of hard-hit balls extended the Seminole lead to 3-0 in the fourth inning. Harrod ripped a one-out double down the left field line, followed by an RBI triple by Gordon into the right field corner. Cassidy Davis lifted a fly ball to right center for out number two, but it was deep enough to score Gordon on a sacrifice fly.

The Gamecocks again managed a two-out rally in the bottom of the fourth inning, getting runners on first and second with an infield single and a walk, but King left them on base with another strikeout.

South Carolina got the first two batters on in the fifth inning on a base hit and a walk, but an infield fly, fielder's choice and a fly out keeps the Gamecocks off the board.

The Gamecocks avoided the shutout in the seventh inning, getting a pair of singles from Kamryn Watts and Mackenzie Boesel, as well as an RBI groundout from Victoria Williams to cut the FSU lead to 3-1.

Jessica Burroughs entered to face the final batter of the game, inducing a pop out to secure her third save of the season and the eighth of her career, moving into a tie for second-most in FSU history.

King (18-1) scattered seven hits and two walks, allowing just one run and recording five strikeouts over 6.2 innings in the win.

South Carolina's Nickie Blue (9-8) took the loss, surrendering five hits, three runs, two earned with two walks and four strikeouts.

Eight of the 11 runs scored by the Seminoles were with two-outs, increasing FSU's overall total of two-out runs this season to 109.

The Seminoles reach the 40-win mark for the eighth time in nine years under head coach Lonni Alameda, and total at least 40 wins for the 30th time in program history.

"Nice pair of road wins tonight," said Alameda. "Troy is a team that competes and always plays us tough, and we did a solid job on both sides to get the wins. Ellie Cooper was consistent for us at the plate and in the field, while Meghan King tossed a great game in game two. It will be a long drive home tonight, but we'll get back to it and prepare for Louisville this weekend."

The Seminoles got a pair of runners on in the first inning of game one behind singles from Morgan Klaevemann and Ellie Cooper, but wouldn't get on the board until the second frame as Cali Harrod hit her eighth home run of the season, a two-run shot to left center. Dani Morgan led off the inning with a single and stole second base before scoring on the HR.

Florida State loaded the bases in the top of the third without a base hit on a hit-by-pitch to Jessica Warren and walks by Sydney Broderick and Harrod, and a two-out RBI single Carsyn Gordon extended FSU's lead to 3-0.

Troy got its first hit of the game from Logan Calhoun to leadoff the third inning and were able to cut the FSU lead to 3-2 later in the inning with doubles from Becca Hartley and Stephanie Snyder.

The Noles brought in three runs in the fourth inning as Zoe Casas led off with a walk. Cooper followed with a single to right, but an errant throw by the Troy right fielder allowed Casas to score and make it 4-2 Noles.

Warren and Broderick both reached on a pair of fielder's choices later in the inning and each came in to score on a double to right by Morgan to push the FSU lead to 6-2.

Cassidy Davis entered to pitch for the Noles in the bottom of the fifth to replace Jessica Burroughs and allowed a walk to the first batter she faced. She would quickly head back to the Troy dugout on a 5-4-3 double play. Davis surrendered a one-out walk and single in the bottom of the sixth, but ended the inning with a pair of strikeouts.

Harrod had the first multi-HR game of her career, launching a two-out solo home run to center in the seventh inning. Following a walk to Gordon, Davis helped her own cause in the circle, launching a two-run home run to right center to give the Noles a 9-2 lead.

Davis allowed an unearned run in the bottom of the seventh, but closed out game one in the circle for the first save of her career. Davis scattered two hits and three walks with two strikeouts in her 3.0 innings pitched. Burroughs (21-2) allowed two runs on three hits over 4.0 innings with a walk and four strikeouts to pick up the win.

Troy threatened the in the bottom of the second inning of game two, getting runners on first and second base on a pair of one-out singles. FSU's Gordon started an inning-ending double play, diving to make a catch at first base on a line drive by Carli Kayler and throwing to Harrod at second to keep the game scoreless.

Cooper lined a two-out double into the right field corner in the Seminole third inning, but would be left stranded to end the frame.

The Seminoles opened the scoring in the top of the fourth inning of game two. Gordon drew a two-out walk and moved up to second base on a passed ball. Casas got down 0-2 in her plate appearance, but battled back to earn a walk on 11 pitches. Davis got the Noles on the board with an RBI single to right field.

FSU added an insurance run in the top of the seventh inning as Warren bounced a ground-rule double over the wall in right center and came in to score on an RBI single up the middle by Cooper.

King retired the final 16 batters in the game, improving to 19-1 with the complete game victory. She faced just 22 batters in the entire game, allowing two hits and zero walks while recording five strikeouts.

No. 2 Noles Clinch 2017 ACC Regular Season Title.
Florida State earns fifth-straight ACC regular season championship with a sweep of Louisville in Sunday's doubleheader, 11-0 (5 inn) and 4-3 (10 inn).

LOUISVILLE, KY - Playing a total of 15 innings in a doubleheader isn't all that uncommon, however the way that No. 2 Florida State (43-3-1, 20-0 ACC) and Louisville (26-16, 9-6 ACC) went about it on Sunday afternoon was very unusual. The Noles earned an 11-0 win in five innings in game one, while it took 10 innings before FSU pulled out a 4-3 win in game two.

The win in game one of the doubleheader clinched the 2017 ACC regular season championship for the Seminoles, marking the fifth consecutive season, and 15th overall, that Florida State has ended the year with the best record in ACC play.

"It is a goal of ours every year to win every conference series and make our adjustments throughout the three games," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Really proud of the girls, and even though this is a different team, it says a lot about your program when you can have that kind of sustained success throughout the season and build on it every year.

"I thought JB did a great job of mixing speeds and moving inside and outside of the plate in the first game. We had some quality plate appearances and also took advantage of some their miscues defensively. In the second game, Megan Hensley was spinning the ball well and we needed to figure out a way to get to her. Coming from behind and scoring late will be a huge character mark for us moving forward, moments where you can look at each other and know that we can battle to the very last out."

Florida State 11, Louisville 0 (5 inn) - Game One

The Seminoles got out to an early 5-0 lead in the first inning of game one as each of the first five batters got on base to open the game. Ellie Cooper led off and reached on a Louisville throwing error, while consecutive singles by Jessica Warren and Alex Powers made it 1-0 FSU.

A walk to Sydney Broderick loaded the bases and a single by Cali Harrod brought in two runs to make it a 3-0 game. Harrod stole second on the first pitch of the next at bat, and the throw sailed into centerfield, allowing Broderick to score from third. Dani Morgan closed out the scoring in the inning with an RBI on a ground out to first base.

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

FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs had a dominant start in the circle for the Noles as she posted two strikeouts in each of the first and second innings and allowed just three runners through the first four innings of the game.

Cassidy Davis led off the FSU fourth inning with an infield single, and Zoe Casas followed with a bunt single. Davis moved up to third on a fly out and came in to score on a wild pitch to Powers. Powers eventually walked and Broderick hit an RBI single to left to make it 7-0 Noles. Harrod made it an 8-0 game with an infield single and a throwing error by Louisville.

Warren tied an FSU career record in the top of the fifth inning, as the junior third baseman hit the 55th home run of her career to center, tying Maddie O'Brien's total from 2012-15.

The home run was a three-run shot that scored Leslie Farris and Morgan. Farris pinch-ran after Cooper was hit by a pitch and Morgan lined a double down the left field line.

Burroughs was one strike away from the fifth no-hitter of her career, but UofL's Morgan Meyer hit a two-out double down in the left field line in the bottom of the fifth inning. A ground out to second base ended the game, giving the Noles the 11-0 victory.

Burroughs improved to 22-2 on the season, walking two and striking out seven in 5.0 shutout innings.

Florida State 4, Louisville 3 (10 inn) - Game Two

It was a pitcher's duel through the first five and a half innings of game two as the only base hit allowed until the fourth inning was a double by Louisville's Nicole Pufahl to lead off the bottom of the second. It ended the streak of FSU's starting pitcher Meghan King of retiring 19 consecutive batters, dating back to the game against Troy on April 18.

The Seminoles threatened in the top of the fifth as a pair of one-out singles, as well as aggressive baserunning by Carsyn Gordon and Morgan put Seminole runners on second and third with one out. They would both be left stranded as Louisville pitcher Megan Hensley got out of the inning with two strikeouts.

King faced just one over the minimum through the first 5.1 innings of the game, before a pair of one-out singles gave the Cardinals runners on first and second. Louisville loaded the bases with one out on an FSU error, causing the Seminoles to make a pitching change and bring in Burroughs.

Louisville's Maryssa Becker gave the Cardinals a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the sixth with a single up the middle, but Burroughs got the next two batters out on a strikeout and a pop out to end the inning.

The Noles tied the game in the top of the seventh as the bottom of the order produced two runs to force extra innings. The 7-8-9 hitters all reached base as Gordon walked and a double to left-center by Morgan put a pair of Seminoles in scoring position with one out. Casas brought both of them in with a two-RBI single to left. Casas was pinch run for by Deja Bush and the freshman stole second and moved up to third on a ground out, but was left stranded.

After a scoreless eighth, FSU took its first lead of the game as Gordon blasted a solo home run to left to lead off the Seminole ninth inning. A walk to Morgan, a single from Bush and a sacrifice bunt by Korina Rosario put FSU runners on second and third with one out, but a line out to short doubled off Morgan at third to end the inning.

The Cardinals got their leadoff batter on in the ninth due to an FSU error, and a groundout advanced her to second base. Louisville was down to its last strike before Alison Szydlowski hit an RBI single to right to tie the game at 3-3.

King re-entered to pitch for Burroughs and issued a walk to the first batter she faced. The next hitter, Morgan Meyer, reached on an FSU error, but Szydlowski overran third base and was retired to end the inning.

The Noles scored again in the top of the 10th as Powers singled to center and came around to score on an RBI double by Broderick to make it 4-3 Florida State.

The Cardinals threatened in the bottom of the 10th as a hit-by-pitch and a Seminole error put UofL runners on the corners with two outs, but Warren ended the game on a line drive catch at third base.

King picked up her 20th win of the season, scattering five hits and two runs over 6.2 innings with one walk and five strikeouts. Burroughs gave up just one unearned run over 3.1 innings with two hits, a walk and three strikeouts.

Dani Morgan closed out the scoring in the inning with an RBI on a ground out to first base.

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

FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs had a dominant start in the circle for the Noles as she posted two strikeouts in each of the first and second innings and allowed just three runners through the first four innings of the game.

Cassidy Davis led off the FSU fourth inning with an infield single, and Zoe Casas followed with a bunt single. Davis moved up to third on a fly out and came in to score on a wild pitch to Powers. Powers eventually walked and Broderick hit an RBI single to left to make it 7-0 Noles. Harrod made it an 8-0 game with an infield single and a throwing error by Louisville.

Warren tied an FSU career record in the top of the fifth inning, as the junior third baseman hit the 55th home run of her career to center, tying Maddie O'Brien's total from 2012-15.

The home run was a three-run shot that scored Leslie Farris and Morgan. Farris pinch-ran after Cooper was hit by a pitch and Morgan lined a double down the left field line.

Burroughs was one strike away from the fifth no-hitter of her career, but UofL's Morgan Meyer hit a two-out double down in the left field line in the bottom of the fifth inning. A ground out to second base ended the game, giving the Noles the 11-0 victory.

Burroughs improved to 22-2 on the season, walking two and striking out seven in 5.0 shutout innings.

Florida State 4, Louisville 3 (10 inn) - Game Two

It was a pitcher's duel through the first five and a half innings of game two as the only base hit allowed until the fourth inning was a double by Louisville's Nicole Pufahl to lead off the bottom of the second. It ended the streak of FSU's starting pitcher Meghan King of retiring 19 consecutive batters, dating back to the game against Troy on April 18.

The Seminoles threatened in the top of the fifth as a pair of one-out singles, as well as aggressive baserunning by Carsyn Gordon and Morgan put Seminole runners on second and third with one out. They would both be left stranded as Louisville pitcher Megan Hensley got out of the inning with two strikeouts.

King faced just one over the minimum through the first 5.1 innings of the game, before a pair of one-out singles gave the Cardinals runners on first and second. Louisville loaded the bases with one out on an FSU error, causing the Seminoles to make a pitching change and bring in Burroughs.

Louisville's Maryssa Becker gave the Cardinals a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the sixth with a single up the middle, but Burroughs got the next two batters out on a strikeout and a pop out to end the inning.

The Noles tied the game in the top of the seventh as the bottom of the order produced two runs to force extra innings. The 7-8-9 hitters all reached base as Gordon walked and a double to left-center by Morgan put a pair of Seminoles in scoring position with one out. Casas brought both of them in with a two-RBI single to left. Casas was pinch run for by Deja Bush and the freshman stole second and moved up to third on a ground out, but was left stranded.

After a scoreless eighth, FSU took its first lead of the game as Gordon blasted a solo home run to left to lead off the Seminole ninth inning. A walk to Morgan, a single from Bush and a sacrifice bunt by Korina Rosario put FSU runners on second and third with one out, but a line out to short doubled off Morgan at third to end the inning.

The Cardinals got their leadoff batter on in the ninth due to an FSU error, and a groundout advanced her to second base. Louisville was down to its last strike before Alison Szydlowski hit an RBI single to right to tie the game at 3-3.

King re-entered to pitch for Burroughs and issued a walk to the first batter she faced. The next hitter, Morgan Meyer, reached on an FSU error, but Szydlowski overran third base and was retired to end the inning.

The Noles scored again in the top of the 10th as Powers singled to center and came around to score on an RBI double by Broderick to make it 4-3 Florida State.

The Cardinals threatened in the bottom of the 10th as a hit-by-pitch and a Seminole error put UofL runners on the corners with two outs, but Warren ended the game on a line drive catch at third base.

King picked up her 20th win of the season, scattering five hits and two runs over 6.2 innings with one walk and five strikeouts. Burroughs gave up just one unearned run over 3.1 innings with two hits, a walk and three strikeouts.

Casas' Seventh-Inning RBI Lifts FSU Over Louisville.
The No. 2 Seminoles remain undefeated in the ACC with a 5-4 win over the Cardinals on Monday night.

LOUISVILLE, KY - Tying an ACC record with its 23rd consecutive win in conference play, No. 2 Florida State (44-3-1, 21-0 ACC) remained perfect in the ACC this season with a 5-4 win over Louisville (26-17, 9-7 ACC) on Monday night at Ulmer Stadium. Sophomore Zoe Casas drove in the game-winning run with an RBI single in the top of the seventh inning to score Cali Harrod, who opened the inning with a bunt single.

The 21 conference wins is tied for the second-most by a team in ACC history, as Florida State is the only school in league history to have at least 20 ACC wins in a season. The 2014 Seminoles hold the conference record with 24, while the 2016 squad won 21 and FSU earned 20 ACC wins in 2015.

The 2017 Draft for the National Pro Fastpitch league was also on Monday night with Jessica Burroughs being selected No. 1 overall and Alex Powers chosen No. 10 overall, both by the USSSA Pride.

It marks the third time that a Florida State athlete has been drafted No. 1 overall in any sport as Burroughs joins Paul Wilson (1994 - MLB) and Jameis Winston (2015 - NFL).

"It is really hard to beat people three times in a weekend," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "You try to make adjustments against them, but they are doing the same to you and Louisville is a team that can really swing it and pitch it. But again, I love our fight. I love that throughout the lineup we have people come through in big situations, like Cali to get that bunt down in the seventh to give us a chance."

The Seminoles jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning as the first five batters all reached base. Morgan Klaevemann and Ellie Cooper hit a pair of infield singles, while walks to Jessica Warren and Alex Powers made it 1-0 FSU. Sydney Broderick drove a base hit back up the middle to score two and extend the Seminole lead to 3-0. Carsyn Gordon drew a two-out walk to reload the bases, but all would be left stranded on base.

FSU starter Jessica Burroughs faced just seven batters through the first two innings, giving up a base hit in the first, but the inning ended when UofL's Maryssa Becker grounded into a double play.

Louisville's Megan Hensley cut the FSU lead to 3-1 with a solo home run in the bottom of the second, and the Cardinals threatened in the third inning, loading the bases with a trio of one-out singles, but another inning-ending double play off the bat of Becker kept Louisville scoreless in the inning.

The Seminoles added to their lead in the top of the fourth as Cassidy Davis and Warren reached on a pair of walks and Powers drove in her 39th run of the season with a single up the middle to make it 4-1.

Louisville tied the game in the bottom of the fourth, loading the bases on three singles by the first three batters of the inning. An RBI groundout by Jenna Jordan and a two-RBI double by Jamie Soles tied the game at 4-4, ending the day in the circle for Burroughs. Meghan King entered the game and got two quick groundouts to end the inning.

Harrod led off the FSU seventh inning with a bunt single and stole second base to move in to scoring position. A wild pitch allowed her to take third base and Casas gave the Noles a 5-4 lead with an RBI single to right.

King allowed her only baserunner of the game on a one-out walk in the bottom of the seventh, ending a streak of nine consecutive batters retired. She closed out the game with two straight groundouts to secure the win.

King improved to 21-1 on the year, striking out one with one walk over 3.2 innings without allowing a hit. Burroughs surrendered nine hits and four runs in 3.1 innings of work, posting one strikeout without a walk.

Meghan King Tosses One-Hitter In Shutout Win Over UNC.
The redshirt sophomore faced just two over the minimum as the Noles earned a 3-0 victory over North Carolina.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Continuing its undefeated start to 2017 at home, as well as in the ACC, No. 2 Florida State (45-3-1, 22-0 ACC) scored late runs in the fifth and sixth innings to earn a 3-0 shutout over North Carolina (36-16, 14-7 ACC) on Friday night at JoAnne Graf Field.

Redshirt sophomore Meghan King tossed a complete-game one-hitter as the Noles won their 24th consecutive ACC game, setting a new league and school record.

"There are a lot of different ways to win ballgames, and we showed another one tonight," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We struggled to figure out (UNC's Brittany) Pickett, but we knew that one pitch and one play could prove the difference and continued to stay in it and battle. We only had three or four balls hit out of the infield, but we executed on some situations to get some runs on the board.

"Meghan (King) did an awesome job in the circle, getting strikeouts and also allowing her defense to make plays behind her. We'll need to go back and make some adjustments for tomorrow, but I think we are in a good spot for the rest of the weekend."

Offense was at a premium in game one of the series, as FSU's King and UNC's starting pitcher Brittany Pickett combined to allow a total of six runners through the middle of the fifth inning.

UNC opened the top of the first with a walk by Leah Murray, but she was thrown out by FSU's Sydney Broderick trying to steal second and the next two hitters popped out.

FSU's King retired 10 straight batters, including striking out the side in the third inning, until Kendra Lynch recorded the only hit for the Tar Heels on a two-out double in the top of the fourth.

UNC's Pickett stymied the Florida State offense, issuing a walk in the first to Alex Powers, hitting Dani Morgan by a pitch in the second and allowing Jessica Warren to reach on an infield single in the third, but all would be left on base as the game remained scoreless until the bottom of the fifth.

The Seminoles got the fifth inning started on a bunt single by Cali Harrod. Carsyn Gordon followed with a single through the left side, and aggressive baserunning by the duo put FSU runners on second and third with nobody out in the inning.

Cassidy Davis opened the scoring with an RBI on a groundout to first, while Zoe Casas brought in another run on a fielder's choice bunt to give the Noles a 2-0 lead after five innings.

Florida State added to their lead in the sixth inning as Broderick got on base with a four-pitch walk. Deja Bush ran for her at first, and after a fielder's choice by Morgan and a UNC throwing error, the Noles had runners at second and third with one out.

Harrod placed a bunt down the first base line, but UNC's Campbell Hutcherson threw home to retire Bush at the plate. As the play continued, Harrod turned to try for second base and UNC threw to the shortstop. Morgan rounded third and easily scored as Harrod got in a rundown and safely returned to first, making it 3-0 FSU.

King pitched a perfect seventh to close out the shutout, improving to 22-1 on the season with the complete-game victory, allowing just one hit and two walks with eight strikeouts over 7.0 innings.

UNC's Pickett (20-6) gave up three runs on three hits, with two walks and three strikeouts in 6.0 innings in the loss.

Jessica Warren Makes History As Noles Top UNC, 8-1.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Scoring in four of the six innings they were at the plate, the Seminoles continued their undefeated run in ACC play as No. 2 Florida State (46-3-1, 23-0 ACC) earned an 8-1 victory over North Carolina (36-17, 14-8 ACC) at JoAnne Graf Field on Saturday afternoon.

Jessica Warren put her name at the top of the FSU record book as the junior launched solo home runs in the first and sixth innings – the 56th and 57th of her career – to become the FSU all-time leader in home runs, surpassing the total of 55 HR set by Maddie O'Brien from 2012-15.

“Anytime you win a series, that accomplishes the goal we set out with for the weekend,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “We were able to scratch out a win today and we know we'll face an excellent pitcher tomorrow, so there is still work to be done. It was great to see different people do different things for us today as we had several players come off the bench and produce.”

UNC got out in front early, scoring an unearned run in the top of the first inning for a 1-0 lead. Leah Murray opened the game with a bunt single, but an FSU throwing error allowed her to move up to third base on the play. A sacrifice fly by Taylor Wike brought in Murray for the game's first run.

The Noles tied it up in the bottom of the first inning on Warren's first solo home run of the day.

FSU took a 2-1 lead in the third inning, putting runners on the corners with one out after a four-pitch walk to Alex Powers and a single up the middle by Sydney Broderick. Korina Rosario hit a pinch-hit sacrifice fly to left, scoring Powers to put the Noles in front.

Warren added to her RBI total, driving in her 60th of the season in the FSU fourth inning to make it a 3-1 game. Cassidy Davis led off the inning with a hit by pitch, moved up to second on a groundout and scored on Warren's RBI single up the middle.

FSU's Meghan King retired 14 in a row, until allowing a two-out walk to UNC's Brittany Pickett with two outs in the fifth inning. She ended the inning with her third strikeout of the game.

Warren extended her career home run total with a two-out solo shot to center in the bottom of the sixth to make it a 4-1 game.

“It's really special to be able to get this record, but I couldn't have done it without my teammates and hitting coaches, and even Maddie herself over the years,” said Warren. “So all the props go to them for helping me be as successful as I have been.”

“From the day she stepped on this campus, she's been a special player,” said Alameda. “And she's just been getting smarter and smarter. She loves the game and the little intricacies of it and so it is really starting to show that she trusts all the works she's put in. She's definitely having fun with it too, which is huge for us.”

Powers continued the Seminole sixth inning with a solo home run of her own for her seventh home run of the season. The Noles loaded the bases after a single by Broderick and walks to Rosario and Leslie Farris, and Carsyn Gordon brought all three of them in on a single to center that was mishandled by the UNC fielder to make it an 8-1 game.

King allowed a leadoff single in the UNC seventh, and after a pop out was replaced in the circle by Davis. Davis only faced one batter as Farris made a diving stop at shortstop, flipped the ball with her glove to Ellie Cooper at second and the senior completed the game-ending double play at first.

King (23-1) earned the win, surrendering just two hits and an unearned run, with a walk and three strikeouts over 6.1 innings. The redshirt sophomore has been outstandingly efficient in her last five starts, retiring over 85% of the batters she has faced against Troy, Louisville and North Carolina, facing just 107 batters to make 92 outs in her last 30.2 innings.

North Carolina combined to use three pitchers in the game as Sydney Matzko (3-6) was the pitcher of record, giving up two runs and three hits over 2.0 innings with two walks. Kellyn Daly got the start for the Tar Heels, pitching 2.1 innings, giving up three hits, a run with a walk and a strikeout, while Hannah Nommensen allowed five runs and three hits in her 1.2 innings, with three walks and a strikeout.

Seminoles Finish Unconquered In ACC Play.
No. 2 Florida State ends the conference season with a perfect 24-0 record after a 6-2 victory over North Carolina.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 2 Florida State (47-3-1, 24-0 ACC) closed out a perfect regular season in conference play with a 6-2 victory on Sunday afternoon over North Carolina (36-18, 14-9 ACC).

It marked the first time since 2003 that any school finished ACC play with an undefeated record, when Florida State posted an 8-0 conference record against the other four ACC schools that participated in softball at that time.

The Seminoles have finished the conference season undefeated four other times - 2003 (8-0), 2002 (6-0), 1995 (6-0) and 1993 (4-0) - and are one of just three schools from a Power-5 conference to ever record a perfect season in conference play, joining Nebraska's 16-0 as a member of the Big 12 in 1998 and Iowa who posted a 22-0 mark in the Big Ten in 1997.

Sunday also marked Senior Day for the Seminole softball team, as all five seniors - Sydney Broderick, Jessica Burroughs, Ellie Cooper, Lauren Harris and Alex Powers - were in the starting lineup and contributed in the win. The four batters combined to record four of the seven FSU hits and drove in three of the four RBI, while Burroughs allowed just two hits and recorded nine strikeouts over 6.2 innings to get the win.

"Going undefeated in conference is such a huge feat, and it isn't just based on skill," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "It takes a lot of character and a lot of leadership, and that has been this senior class. They've just been so consistent with everything they do on and off the field. So it doesn't matter if you are down or if you are up, you are going to get 'Seminole Softball' for seven innings. It is just so fun to see and they have worked for that."

North Carolina struck first, scoring a run in the first inning to take an early 1-0 lead. Leah Murray opened the game with a single to center, moved up to second on a sacrifice bunt before scoring on an RBI single by Kendra Lynch.

The Seminoles got runners on in both the first and second innings, but wouldn't get on the board until the third inning as Jessica Warren and Powers hit back-to-back doubles with one out. Cali Harrod put a bunt in front of the plate, but the throw was high, allowing both runners to score, giving the Noles a 2-1 lead.

Florida State brought in two more in the fourth inning as Korina Rosario and Harris produced at the bottom of the order with a pair of one-out walks. RBI singles by Cooper and Powers extended the Seminole lead to 4-1 after four innings.

FSU's Burroughs settled in after allowing the first-inning run, retiring 12 straight batters until a two-out walk to Brittany Pickett in the top of the fifth inning. She would be left stranded after a groundout to second base.

North Carolina cut the Seminole lead to 4-2 in the top of the sixth on an unearned run. Murray walked and stole second, but a two-out grounder was mishandled by the Seminole defense, allowing her to score on the play.

Rosario and Harris started the Seminole offense in the sixth inning, as Rosario tripled to left center to lead off the inning. Harris drove her in with a sacrifice fly to make it a 5-2 game, while Warren hit her third home run of the series and 19th of the season for the final 6-2 result.

Pair Of HRs Powers No. 2 Noles Over No. 1 Florida.
Redshirt senior Alex Powers hit a walk-off, two-run home run in the bottom of the 11th inning for a 3-1 victory.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Sending an 11th-inning pitch from Florida's Kelly Barnhill over the right field wall, Alex Powers gave No. 2 Florida State (48-3-1) a 3-1 walk-off victory over No. 1 Florida (46-5) on Wednesday night in front of a record crowd of 2,509 at JoAnne Graf Field in the Fresh From Florida Sunshine Showdown. Junior Korina Rosario started the inning with a triple into the right field corner to spark the victory.

It marked the third time that FSU has defeated the No. 1 team in the country and the first since a 3-2 win over Arizona State on March 20, 2008. It was the first time that the Noles had defeated Florida when they were the No. 1 team, losing the previous four matchups when the Gators were the top team in the country.

UF's Barnhill entered the game with a 0.16 ERA and had given up just three total earned runs and zero home runs, but left Tallahassee after allowing two home runs and three earned runs in her first loss of the season.

"Obviously the 'W' is huge for us, but I was so proud of the kids' process pitch-by-pitch," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We talked about it yesterday in practice, just being present, and Barnhill and (Delanie) Gourley are amazing pitchers. They strike out a ton of people and we are going to strike out, but if we stay present someone is going to get a pitch to do some damage. And for Korina and AP, that was huge for us. And for Warren to get her swing off for us, to keep us in the ballgame, was awesome."

After FSU starter Jessica Burroughs retired the first two batters of the game, Florida took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first on an RBI single by Janell Wheaton, scoring Kayli Kvistad who also singled in the inning.

The Seminoles tied the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the first, as Jessica Warren hit a solo home run into the bushes beyond the wall in left. It was Warren's 20th home run of the season and the fourth in her last three games, extending her hitting streak to 19 games.

The two teams combined for eight total baserunners over the next six innings on six hits and two walks as the game went to extra innings tied at 1-1. Florida hit a double in the sixth off the bat of Nicole DeWitt and Florida State had a double from Carsyn Gordon with two outs in the seventh, but neither team was able to get a runner to third base as the game entered the eighth inning.

UF threatened in the top of the ninth as Alesia Ocasio hit a one-out double down the left field line. She moved up to third on a groundout to second base, but was left stranded.

The Seminoles got a runner to second in the bottom of the tenth as Gordon drove a one-out single up the middle and moved up a base on a passed ball, but was kept off the board.

Meghan King (24-1) earned the win in relief, scattering two hits over the final 6.2 innings of the game, striking out three and allowing two walks. Jessica Burroughs gave up one run on four hits, pitching 4.1 innings to start the game without allowing a walk and recording four strikeouts.

Florida State ended the regular season with an undefeated 25-0 record at home, extending its home winning streak to 32 games.

No. 2 FSU Drop Two At No. 5 Oregon.
The Seminoles lose both games of Saturday's doubleheader at Jane Sanders Stadium.

EUGENE, OR - Losing in back-to-back games for just the second time this season, No. 2 Florida State (48-5-1) dropped both games of the doubleheader at No. 5 Oregon (43-6) on Saturday, losing 11-0 in game one and 3-1 in game two.

The Seminoles were plagued by four errors in the opening game, as seven of the 11 Oregon runs were unearned. The loss snapped a streak of eight consecutive wins over teams in the Pac-12 conference. Oregon was the most recent Pac-12 team to beat Florida State, taking a 3-0 win on May 29, 2014.

The Ducks scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth in game two to come from behind and earn the 3-1 victory to close out the day.

"Tough games today," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Oregon's a strong team that is solid at the plate and in the circle, and we can't afford to give them extra outs. They took advantage of every opportunity we gave them, while we struggled to convert ours. We get another chance at it tomorrow and I look forward to the opportunity."

Game 1: Oregon 11, Florida State 0
Oregon scored its first run of the game before recording its first hit as Shannon Rhodes led off the second inning by reaching on a Seminole fielding error. A sacrifice bunt and an RBI fielder's choice by Madi Bishop brought her in to score, giving the Ducks a 1-0 lead. FSU's Cali Harrod helped end the threat, catching a line drive at short and doubling off the runner at first to end the inning.

The Seminoles had runners on base in each of the first three innings with singles by Ellie Cooper and Alex Powers, and a walk by Sydney Broderick, but were unable to get anyone past second base in the early going.

Oregon broke the game open in the bottom of the third inning, scoring four runs before the Noles were able to record an out. Alexis Mack hit an RBI single and Gwen Svekis had a two-run home run prompting FSU to make a pitching change, bringing in Cassidy Davis to replace Meghan King in the circle.

The Ducks continued the frame with three consecutive singles to take a 6-0 lead before Davis was able to retire three of the next four batters to end the inning.

Oregon added five unearned runs in the bottom of the fourth inning for the 11-0 final score.

King (24-2) allowed three hits and five runs, three earned, over 2.0 innings for her second loss of the season. Davis gave up six runs, but just one earned run over 1.2 innings, allowing eight hits and two walks. Abby Evans closed out the game in the circle for the Noles, giving up one hit and facing just two batters.

Game 2: Oregon 3, Florida State 1
The Seminoles took an early 1-0 lead in the top of the second inning in game two. Broderick and Zoe Casas drew one-out walks and Carsyn Gordon put FSU on the board on a single for her 39th RBI of the season.

Oregon threatened in the bottom of the second inning, loading the bases with one out on a pair of singles and a Seminole fielding error, but FSU's Jessica Burroughs was able to get out of the jam with a strikeout and a fly out to center.

The game became a pitching duel between Burroughs and Oregon's Maggie Balint as only three total batters from either team reached base in the third through fifth innings.

Florida State was able to get a pair of runners on base in the top of the sixth on singles by Cooper and Broderick, but both would be left stranded.

Oregon tied the game in the bottom of the sixth as the Ducks led off the inning with a single from Rhodes and an RBI double by Mia Camuso. After a single and a sacrifice bunt, King came into the game to pitch for Burroughs with one out and runners on the corners.

A single to center by Jenna Lilley gave Oregon the lead and FSU's second error of the game, and sixth of the day, gave the Ducks a 3-1 lead heading to the seventh inning.

Oregon's Balint retired the Seminoles in order in the seventh inning to improve to 18-3 on the season. She allowed three hits and three walks with seven strikeouts in the win.

Burroughs fell to 23-3, giving up seven hits and three runs, two earned, with one walk and four strikeouts over 5.1 innings. King allowed one walk and one hit over the final 0.2 innings of the game.

EUGENE, OR - Losing in back-to-back games for just the second time this season, No. 2 Florida State (48-5-1) dropped both games of the doubleheader at No. 5 Oregon (43-6) on Saturday, losing 11-0 in game one and 3-1 in game two.

The Seminoles were plagued by four errors in the opening game, as seven of the 11 Oregon runs were unearned. The loss snapped a streak of eight consecutive wins over teams in the Pac-12 conference. Oregon was the most recent Pac-12 team to beat Florida State, taking a 3-0 win on May 29, 2014.

The Ducks scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth in game two to come from behind and earn the 3-1 victory to close out the day.

"Tough games today," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Oregon's a strong team that is solid at the plate and in the circle, and we can't afford to give them extra outs. They took advantage of every opportunity we gave them, while we struggled to convert ours. We get another chance at it tomorrow and I look forward to the opportunity."

Game 1: Oregon 11, Florida State 0
Oregon scored its first run of the game before recording its first hit as Shannon Rhodes led off the second inning by reaching on a Seminole fielding error. A sacrifice bunt and an RBI fielder's choice by Madi Bishop brought her in to score, giving the Ducks a 1-0 lead. FSU's Cali Harrod helped end the threat, catching a line drive at short and doubling off the runner at first to end the inning.

The Seminoles had runners on base in each of the first three innings with singles by Ellie Cooper and Alex Powers, and a walk by Sydney Broderick, but were unable to get anyone past second base in the early going.

Oregon broke the game open in the bottom of the third inning, scoring four runs before the Noles were able to record an out. Alexis Mack hit an RBI single and Gwen Svekis had a two-run home run prompting FSU to make a pitching change, bringing in Cassidy Davis to replace Meghan King in the circle.

The Ducks continued the frame with three consecutive singles to take a 6-0 lead before Davis was able to retire three of the next four batters to end the inning.

Oregon added five unearned runs in the bottom of the fourth inning for the 11-0 final score.

King (24-2) allowed three hits and five runs, three earned, over 2.0 innings for her second loss of the season. Davis gave up six runs, but just one earned run over 1.2 innings, allowing eight hits and two walks. Abby Evans closed out the game in the circle for the Noles, giving up one hit and facing just two batters.

Game 2: Oregon 3, Florida State 1
The Seminoles took an early 1-0 lead in the top of the second inning in game two. Broderick and Zoe Casas drew one-out walks and Carsyn Gordon put FSU on the board on a single for her 39th RBI of the season.

Oregon threatened in the bottom of the second inning, loading the bases with one out on a pair of singles and a Seminole fielding error, but FSU's Jessica Burroughs was able to get out of the jam with a strikeout and a fly out to center.

The game became a pitching duel between Burroughs and Oregon's Maggie Balint as only three total batters from either team reached base in the third through fifth innings.

Florida State was able to get a pair of runners on base in the top of the sixth on singles by Cooper and Broderick, but both would be left stranded.

Oregon tied the game in the bottom of the sixth as the Ducks led off the inning with a single from Rhodes and an RBI double by Mia Camuso. After a single and a sacrifice bunt, King came into the game to pitch for Burroughs with one out and runners on the corners.

A single to center by Jenna Lilley gave Oregon the lead and FSU's second error of the game, and sixth of the day, gave the Ducks a 3-1 lead heading to the seventh inning.

Oregon's Balint retired the Seminoles in order in the seventh inning to improve to 18-3 on the season. She allowed three hits and three walks with seven strikeouts in the win.

Burroughs fell to 23-3, giving up seven hits and three runs, two earned, with one walk and four strikeouts over 5.1 innings. King allowed one walk and one hit over the final 0.2 innings of the game.

No. 5 Oregon Earns Walk-Off Win Over No. 2 FSU In Nine Innings.
The Seminoles fall in the regular-season finale, 2-1 in nine innings on Sunday evening.

EUGENE, OR - Going to extra innings against a team in the top five for the second time this week, the Seminoles were on the wrong side of a walk-off win on Sunday as No. 5 Oregon (44-6) earned a 2-1 victory in nine innings over No. 2 Florida State (48-6-1).

It marks the first three-game losing streak for FSU since April 4-11, 2015 when the Noles fell to NC State, Florida and Louisville. It also is the first three-game series sweep for Florida State since March 26-27, 2011 at North Carolina.

"Obviously not the outcome we wanted, but we are excited about the fight we had today," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We had many opportunities and JB threw a great game. Hats off to Oregon. They are a good ball club and this was the challenge we wanted when scheduling this series. Now it is time to get a little rest and go into the ACC tournament and take care of business."

The Seminoles opened the scoring in the second inning as Sydney Broderick led off with an infield single. Carsyn Gordon followed with a fielder's choice, retiring Broderick at second, while freshman Anna Shelnutt drove the first double of her career into the gap in left center to score Gordon and give FSU a 1-0 lead.

Florida State added hits in each of the next three innings on singles by Morgan Klaevemann, Jessica Warren, Gordon and Cali Harrod, but the Noles were unable to string the offense together as the game remained 1-0 after the top of five.

FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs did not allow an Oregon runner to reach base until a one-out single by Shannon Rhodes in the bottom of the fifth inning. A stolen base moved her up to second base and an RBI single by Miranda Elish tied the game at 1-1.

Oregon threatened in the sixth inning as Jenna Lilley led off with a single. A fielder's choice and a pair of wild pitches allowed Oregon to put a runner on third with two outs, but Burroughs ended the inning with her seventh strikeout of the game.

Both teams traded scoreless seventh innings as the game went to extras tied at 1-1.

Oregon made a pitching change to start the top of the eighth, bringing in Megan Kleist to replace starter Miranda Elish. Ellie Cooper opened the inning with a single up the middle and Warren followed with her second hit of the game as the Noles put runners on second and third with nobody out in the eighth.

The Ducks made another pitching change as Maggie Balint entered the game for Kleist. Balint got out of the inning with a strikeout of Alex Powers, a bunt by Dani Morgan that was grabbed by the catcher to retire Cooper at the plate and a fly out to right by Gordon.

The Noles got a runner to third again in the ninth inning as Harrod was hit by a pitch, stole second and an Oregon error gave her an extra base. She would be left stranded as Klaevemann struck out to end the inning.

Oregon opened the bottom of the ninth with a double by Danica Mercado. A sacrifice bunt moved her up third base and Gwen Svekis ended the game with a sacrifice fly to center.

Freshmen Carry No. 4 FSU Over Virginia.
First-year Seminoles combine for three home runs, 10 RBI and six runs scored in FSU's 16-0 win over UVA in the quarterfinals of the ACC Softball Championship.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - Playing in the ACC Softball Championship for the first time didn't faze the crop of FSU freshmen as the first-year Seminole players combined for three home runs, 10 RBI and six runs scored as No. 4 Florida State (49-6-1) earned a 16-0 win in five innings over Virginia (22-32) in the quarterfinal round of the tournament on Thursday.

The Seminoles matched or set seven ACC Tournament records in the game, highlighted by Anna Shelnutt as her two home runs matched a tournament single-game record and her seven RBI broke the previous record of five. The team also set new single-game records of runs scored in a game (16) and runs scored in an inning (12), among others.

"I'm really pleased with the way we came out," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Hats off to Virginia for a great season. I think after our trip to Oregon and having some team meetings, swinging the bat and looking for certain pitches was a big thing for us today. We saw that one through nine and people came off the bench (and contributed). So a good start for us and we're excited about the next game.

"Our freshmen have been outstanding. I think that we've relied on them quite a bit this season. We're a very veteran team, an experienced team and our upperclassmen have been so good about talking to the freshmen and their roles and what to expect. I would imagine right now there's been some nerves but you settle quickly when you have your upperclassmen in your hip pocket talking to you. That's the leadership this season that's been really good for us."

Virginia put the game's first baserunner on with a two-out double in the second inning by Iyana Hughes. The hit snapped a streak of 8.0 innings without allowing a hit for FSU pitcher Jessica Burroughs, including a no-hitter against the Cavaliers on March 26.

The Seminoles opened the scoring in the bottom of the second as Carsyn Gordon led off the inning with a single up the middle. Cali Harrod reached on a fielder's choice and ACC All-Freshman Team member Dani Morgan sent a pitch over the wall in right for her third home run of the season to make it 3-0 Florida State.

The inning continued with a walk to Zoe Casas and an intentional walk to Jessica Warren and Ellie Cooper drove a two-out single to center to give FSU a 4-0 lead. It marked the 30th time this season that the Noles have scored four or more runs in an inning.

Florida State scored 12 runs on 10 hits in the bottom of the third inning to break the game open. Gordon led off with a walk and Morgan hit a one-out infield single to the shortstop. Shelutt hit her first home run of the game to make it 7-0 Noles.

A trio of singles from Zoe Casas, Morgan Klaevemann and Cooper pushed the FSU lead to 8-0, followed by the 17th double of the season by Alex Powers to drive in two more runs.

An RBI single by Gordon, a single by Sydney Broderick and a walk to Morgan loaded the bases for Shelnutt and she hit her second home run of the inning, and third of the season, with a grand slam off the scoreboard in left field. Korina Rosario followed with a solo home run of her own for the 16-0 final score.

Burroughs improved to 24-4 on the season, allowing just two hits over 3.0 innings with five strikeouts and zero walks. Meghan King retired all four batters she faced and Cassidy Davis closed out the final 0.2 innings of the game, allowing just one hit.

Seminoles Shutout Irish To Advance To ACC Title Game.
Florida State earns a 6-0 victory over Notre Dame on Friday in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - Posting a shutout for the second consecutive game in the 2017 ACC Softball Championship, No. 4 Florida State (50-6-1) secured a spot in the conference title game for the 21st time in program history after a 6-0 victory over Notre Dame (33-21) on Friday at Anderson Stadium.

It marks the eighth time in the nine years under head coach Lonni Alameda that the Seminoles will play for an ACC Championship, with the Noles earning ACC titles in 2011, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Florida State did not allow a run in four games against Notre Dame this season, outscoring the Irish by a combined score of 34-0. The Noles haven't allowed a run to the Irish in the last 29.2 innings of the matchup, dating back to the 2016 ACC Championship Game.

"I think this time of year, it's important to really stick to your plan at the plate," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "The coaching staff, we do scouting, we talk about it, and it sparks the dugout when you get your swing off and you're looking for a pitch and you get that success. It sparks the dugout to keep going.

"I thought Meghan threw well. She kept us in the ballgame until we started swinging the bats. Then we made some adjustment on Nasland's rise ball and Dani got one with the change up. It's good to get some production there and then we finished off some good pitching with some good defense."

Just like in Thursday's quarterfinal game, a second-inning home run by Dani Morgan gave the Noles an early lead as the freshman hit a solo shot, her fourth of the season, to left center to put FSU up 1-0.

Two more home runs in the Seminole third inning highlighted a four-run frame as Florida State took a 5-0 lead. Ellie Cooper led off the inning with a single up the middle and came in to score on the ninth home run of the season by Alex Powers. Carsyn Gordon made it back-to-back HRs with a solo home run to left.

The inning continued with a double by Sydney Broderick and an infield single by Morgan to put runners on the corners with one out. Cali Harrod put down a sacrifice bunt, but a Notre Dame error allowed her to reach base and brought in pinch-runner Korina Rosario to give FSU a 5-0 lead.

The Noles added to their lead in the fifth inning as Morgan led off with an infield single and quickly stole second. A fly out to right moved her up to third base and a two-out RBI single by Morgan Klaevemann extended FSU's advantage to 6-0.

Notre Dame got its first hit of the game on a two-out infield single by Ali Wester. It snapped a streak of retiring 11 in a row by FSU starting pitcher Meghan King. The Irish managed just five baserunners for the entire game on two hits, two walks and a Seminole error, but King finished her fifth shutout of the season and improved to 25-2, striking out four in the victory.

Notre Dame's Rachel Nasland allowed five runs on six hits over 3.0 innings with two walks and a strikeout. Katie Beriont pitched the final 3.0 innings for the Irish and gave up three hits, one run and two walks with two strikeouts.

Four In A Row! Florida State Wins 2017 ACC Championship.
The Seminoles earn their 15th ACC title with a 4-3 win over North Carolina on Saturday.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - Completing an undefeated season against ACC teams, with 24 wins in the regular season, along with three more in the ACC Tournament, No. 4 Florida State (51-6-1) earned the 2017 ACC Championship with a 4-3 win over North Carolina (38-19) on Saturday afternoon at Anderson Stadium.

It marked the 15th ACC Championship for Florida State and the fifth under FSU head coach Lonni Alameda (2011, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017).

The Seminoles placed five players on the 2017 ACC All-Tournament Team - Anna Shelnutt, Carsyn Gordon, Jessica Burroughs, Meghan King and Tournament MVP Dani Morgan. The freshman left fielder batted .750 for the weekend (6-for-8) with a triple, two home runs, five RBI and five runs scored.

"Consistency," said Alameda, when asked about the program winning its four straight title. "That's something that you talk about getting buy-in from your program from your staff, to your players, to your recruits, and the standards that you set, and not waver in them. I think over time if you have pretty good success you have some standards that are very consistent within juniors and seniors to sophomores and freshmen and your staff, too. It speaks loudly to the consistency our culture and our program."

The game started out as a pitcher's duel between FSU's Jessica Burroughs (2017 ACC Pitcher of the Year) and UNC's Brittany Pickett (2017 ACC Freshman of the Year) as the game was scoreless until the fourth inning.

Burroughs retired the first 10 batters she faced and recorded five strikeouts over that span, including striking out side in the second inning. UNC's hit by Taylor Wike in the top of the fourth inning was nearly caught by Ellie Cooper on a leaping attempt in shallow right, falling out of her glove as she landed.

Pickett limited the FSU offense to just one baserunner through the first three innings, allowing a single to Anna Shelnutt in the third inning, before Jessica Warren hit her 21st home run of the season to lead off the Seminole fourth inning.

Sydney Broderick continued the inning with a walk and came in to score on a two-out, RBI triple by Dani Morgan to make it 2-0 Florida State.

Warren opened the Seminole sixth inning, reaching second base on a UNC fielding error, but quickly came in to score on a two-run home run by Alex Powers, her 10th of the season, to give the Noles a 4-0 lead.

Burroughs had faced just one over the minimum through six innings before Wike led off the UNC seventh with a single through the right side. After a strikeout, an infield single and a fly out, North Carolina was down to its last strike before Katelyn Shifflett cut the lead to 4-3 with a three-run home run to center.

Meghan King entered to pitch for Burroughs and got her second save of the season, striking out Pickett to end the game. Burroughs gave up three runs on four hits with zero walks and eight strikeouts to improve to 25-4 on the season.

Pickett took the loss and moved to 21-8 on the year, giving up five hits, four runs, three earned with a walk and two strikeouts.

No. 4 Seminoles Shutout Princeton Six of FSU’s eight hits go for extra bases in the 3-0 win on Friday night. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Behind a combined one-hitter in the circle by Jessica Burroughs and Meghan King, No. 4 Florida State (52-6-1) earned a 3-0 win over Princeton (25-19) in the opening round of the NCAA Tallahassee Regional on Friday night at JoAnne Graf Field. The Seminoles had eight hits on the night, with six of them going for extra bases on four doubles, a triple and a home run. The Florida State catchers had a day both at and behind the plate as Sydney Broderick had a double and a solo home run, while Anna Shelnutt doubled and tripled in the win. It marked the 11th straight win for Florida State in the regional round of the NCAA Tournament, as the Noles have outscored their opponents 32-5 dating back to the 2014 season. “Always nice to get the first win under your belt,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “She (Princeton pitcher Claire Klausner) was spinning it up a little bit today and making the ball move. You know we got some good swings off and had some good pitching in the circle. It’s just nice to get that first win of the weekend.” The Tigers threatened right out of the gate, getting the first two batters of the game on base after an FSU error along with their only base hit coming on an infield single Kylee Pierce. A fly out and a groundout moved the runners up to second and third with two outs, and Princeton’s Kaylee Grant was hit by a pitch to load the bases. FSU’s Burroughs ended the inning with a strikeout to maintain the scoreless game. Florida State also got a runner to third base in its half of the first inning, but was unable to bring her in. Jessie Warren hit a one-out double to center and, following a walk by Alex Powers, moved up to third on a fielder’s choice before a pop out ended the inning. The Noles used a pair of doubles in the bottom of the second inning to take a 1-0 lead. Broderick led off with a ball off the centerfield wall, while Shelnutt added one of her own to put FSU on top in the early going. Shelnutt hit her second extra-base hit of the game in the bottom of the fourth, a two-out triple to right, but was left on base after a pop out. FSU added a run in the bottom of the fifth as Morgan Klaevemann led off with a four-pitch walk and immediately stole second base. She scored after Alex Powers singled to right and the pair of Seminoles executed a first-and-third play, extending FSU’s lead to 2-0. Broderick made it a 3-0 game with a solo home run in the sixth inning, her fifth of the season, and Dani Morgan continued the inning with a double down the left field line. Korina Rosario hit a single up the middle that was stopped on a diving attempt by the Princeton second baseman Haley Hineman, and Morgan attempted to score on the play, but was thrown out at the plate to end the inning. Burroughs retired 16 batters in a row before giving way to Meghan King to close out the seventh inning for her third save of the season, setting down all three hitters she faced. Burroughs (26-4) recorded eight strikeouts and zero walks in 6.0 scoreless innings, allowing just one hit.

Four Home Runs Carry FSU over Georgia.
The Seminoles defeat the Bulldogs, 7-1, to advance to Sunday's regional championship game.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Closely mirroring Friday's win over Princeton to open the NCAA Tallahassee Regional, No. 4 Florida State (53-6-1) hit the ball all over - and out of - the yard as the Seminoles defeated No. 25 Georgia (34-22) by a score of 7-1 on Saturday at JoAnne Graf Field.

Five of the seven FSU hits were for extra bases, including a double by Ellie Cooper, a solo home run by Jessie Warren, a three-run home run by Carsyn Gordon and a pair of home runs by Anna Shelnutt. The home runs increased FSU's total to 69, breaking the previous school-record of 65 that was set in 2014.

"Completely proud of the team right now," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We knew we hadn't really peaked this season yet and I feel like today all our parts were running together. There's definitely unity on the field right now that we can feel and feed off of each other. Really excited about that. It's a tough ball club so that's a huge win for us today."

Much like on Friday night, the Seminoles got out of an early bases-loaded threat to keep the game scoreless as Georgia posted a trio of singles in the top of the second inning. FSU starting pitcher Meghan King kept the Bulldogs off the board by striking out Jordan Doggett to end the inning.

The Noles got out in front in the second inning as Cooper posted the first FSU hit of the game on a one-out double to centerfield. Shelnutt picked up where she left off on Friday, launching her fourth home run of the season to straight-away center to put Florida State up 2-0.

King opened the UGA third inning with her sixth strikeout of the game, before allowing an infield single to Sydni Emanuel. FSU shortstop Cali Harrod quickly ended the inning, leaping to catch a line drive off the bat of Alyssa DiCarlo and firing to first base.

Florida State got a pair of runners on in the bottom of the fourth inning as Cooper was hit by a pitch and Harrod drew a walk, but Georgia pitcher Brittany Gray made a nice snag on a ball back up the middle to retire Morgan Klaevemann to end the inning.

Warren opened the Seminole fifth inning by lining the first pitch of her at bat over the wall in center for her 22nd home run of the season, pushing FSU out to a 3-0 lead.

The Seminole defense turned its second double play of the game, and 22nd of the season, in the top of the sixth, erasing a leadoff runner on a ground ball to Warren that was flipped to Cooper and finished at Alex Powers at first.

Shelnutt opened the FSU sixth inning with her second home run of the season to right center, marking her second multi-HR game in the last five games as she hit two against Virginia in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament on May 11.

The inning continued as Harrod and Klaevemann walked, setting the stage for Gordon to hit her seventh home run of the year to left to extend FSU's lead to 7-0.

The first two Georgia hitters were retired in the top of the seventh, but a pair of infield singles and a walk allowed the Bulldogs to score their only run of the game. FSU's Cassidy Davis entered the circle and ended the game, retiring the only batter she faced on a groundout.

King (26-2) scattered seven hits over 6.2 innings, giving up one unearned run with one walk and eight strikeouts.

UGA's Gray took the loss, moving to 18-11 on the season, allowing five runs on six hits with four walks and two strikeouts over 5.0 innings. Amanda Ablan pitched the final inning for UGA, allowing two runs on one hit with a walk and a strikeout.

Five In A Row! No. 4 FSU Reaches Fifth-Straight NCAA Super Regional.
The Seminoles defeat No. 25 Georgia, 8-5, to win the NCAA Tallahassee Regional on Sunday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Winning its 13th consecutive NCAA regional game, No. 4 Florida State (54-6-1) is one of the final 16 teams competing for the 2017 National Championship after an 8-5 win against No. 25 Georgia (35-23) on Sunday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field. It is the fifth-straight season that the Seminoles have advanced to the Super Regional round of the NCAA Softball Championship.

The win is FSU's 35th straight win at home, dating back to May 7, 2016, which moves into a tie for the second-longest home winning streak in school history. The streak matches a 35-game span through the 1992-93 seasons, and only trails a 38-game home winning streak from March 22, 1984 to April 13, 1985.

"Hats off to Georgia, they are an outstanding ball club," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "We always have fierce competitions against them and they have such great speed and hitting so it was a pretty good dog fight for us. King (Meghan King) was great pitching to our defense and doing some really good things. Just so cool to see the kids learn how to stick to a plan, just coming off and getting our swing off for us in the first inning to really settle us in to being comfortable and getting after some good defensive at bats.

"Really proud of the team, we're really coming together at the right time. I couldn't be more excited for them. As a coach you're really excited but for them, they have these moments for the rest of their lives. It's just really cool to see that come together."

Jessie Warren quickly put the Noles up 2-0 in the top of the first, launching the first pitch of her at bat over the left field wall for her 23rd home run of the season, scoring Morgan Klaevemann who opened the game with an infield single.

Carsyn Gordon led off the FSU third inning with a single to right and quickly came in to score on an RBI double by Dani Morgan. A sacrifice fly by Sydney Broderick made it a 4-0 game and Ellie Cooper continued the inning with a single to right. The senior captain stole second with two outs in the inning and came in to score on an RBI single by Cali Harrod.

FSU starting pitcher Meghan King retired seven of the first eight UGA hitters, allowing just one runner on an FSU error in the second before Jordan Doggett hit a one-out infield single that stayed inside the third base line in the bottom of the third.

A bunt single by Cortni Emanuel and a walk by her twin sister Sydni loaded the bases for UGA later in the inning and Alyssa DiCarlo drove in a pair of runs on a single up the middle to cut the lead to 5-2.

The Seminoles added a pair of runs in the fourth as Gordon drew a two-out walk and Morgan hit a home run to center on the first pitch of her at bat to make it 7-2 Florida State.

Georgia threatened in the bottom of the fourth inning as its first two batters got on via singles. King helped the Noles get out of the inning unscathed by retiring the next three hitters in order, including her fourth strikeout of the game.

UGA's DiCarlo added another RBI on a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth, closing FSU's lead to 7-3.

The Noles added another run in the seventh on a bases-loaded walk by Alex Powers. A pair of walks to Cooper and Zoe Casas, along with an error by Georgia off the bat of Anna Shelnutt allowed for the free pass to make it 8-3 Florida State.

Georgia battled until the very end, getting four consecutive singles in the bottom of the seventh to trim the lead to 8-5, forcing FSU to make a pitching change and bring in Jessica Burroughs with the tying run at the plate. The senior faced only one batter as UGA's Lacey Sumerlin lined out to Warren at third, which started a game-ending double play at first.

King earned her 27th win of the season and allowed 10 hits and five runs over 6.1 innings, with just one walk and six strikeouts. Burroughs earned her fourth save of the season, and ninth of her career, tying the FSU records in both categories.

No. 4 Noles Take Game One Over No. 18 LSU.
Florida State takes one step closer to the Women's College World Series with a 3-1 win against LSU.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Winning the first game of the NCAA Tallahassee Super Regional for the second straight season, No. 4 Florida State (55-6-1) is one game away from the 2017 Women's College World Series after a 3-1 win over No. 18 LSU (45-20) on Friday night at JoAnne Graf Field.

The Seminole senior class led the way for Florida State as Ellie Cooper and Sydney Broderick combined for four hits, including three doubles and two RBI, while pitcher Jessica Burroughs allowed just three hits in the complete-game victory.

The 55 wins so far in 2017 ties a program record under head coach Lonni Alameda, matching the final total in 2014 and 2016 when the Seminoles advanced to the WCWS. Overall, it is tied for the sixth-highest win total in school history, trailing the 63 wins from 1991, 62 in 1992 and 2004 and 58 in 1995 and 2001.

"Couldn't be more proud of the team and the fight," said Alameda. "We talked about all season that we'd sometimes just touch the water a little bit and see how warm it is and not just jump in. But today we just go after it and I'm really proud of them. It is a great ballclub in LSU. Getting the first game under your belt is big and builds momentum for us. Obviously a huge game for us tomorrow."

Friday's game remained scoreless until the bottom of the third inning when Cali Harrod opened the FSU half of the inning with a double down the right field line. Morgan Klaevemann followed with a bunt single to put runners on the corners and Jessie Warren drove in her 68th RBI of the season on a single to left to give the Noles a 1-0 lead. It marked the 21st time this season that Warren drove in Florida State's first run of the game.

The Noles got a runner to third in the fourth inning as Cooper lined a one-out double into the gap in right center. The senior captain moved up to third on a failed pickoff attempt by LSU, but a groundout to short ended the inning.

Burroughs was outstanding in the circle for Florida State to open the game, not allowing a base hit until a one-out single in the fifth inning by Amber Serrett. LSU took advantage of the opportunity, moving her up to second on a sacrifice bunt and an RBI single by Emily Griggs tied the game at 1-1.

The Seminoles took the lead for good in the bottom of the sixth inning as Carsyn Gordon led off with a single up the middle. She moved up to second on a wild pitch and Sydney Broderick's second double of the game put the Noles in front 2-1. Freshman Deja Bush entered the game to pinch run for Broderick and promptly scored on an RBI single to right by Cooper, extending the FSU lead to 3-1.

Burroughs retired the side in order in the top of the seventh for her 27th win of the season, scattering three hits and three walks, while striking out eight batters.

LSU's Carley Hoover (14-7) allowed three runs on eight hits with a walk and six strikeouts in the loss.

LSU Forces Game Three With 1-0 Win Over FSU.
The Noles lose their first home game of the season as the Tigers push the NCAA Super Regional to a third game.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Offense was at a premium at JoAnne Graf Field on Saturday afternoon, and No. 18 LSU (46-20) managed to score the only run of the game on an unearned run in the third inning to take a 1-0 victory over No. 4 Florida State (55-7-1). The win forces game three of the NCAA Tallahassee Regional on Sunday at 1:00 p.m., with the winner advancing to the 2017 Women's College World Series.

"That's what this time of year is," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "Hats off to (Allie) Walljasper and LSU. We were one swing away, you know. Granted, it was a no-hitter there for a while, but we were one swing away and had a chance. We're excited about the challenge tomorrow.

"Nothing to hang your heads about, it is two good ball clubs. I love the challenge of tomorrow and the opportunity to go back and study a little bit. We've seen both of their pitchers, as they have ours, and it is just a matter of going out and playing the game we know how to play."

The Seminoles put the pressure on in the top of the first inning as Jessie Warren and Alex Powers reached on a one-out hit-by-pitch and a walk, respectively. LSU nearly ended the inning with a double play as a line drive by Carsyn Gordon was caught by LSU 3B Shemiah Sanchez, but her throw to second was mishandled, allowing Warren to take third base. Powers stole second to move into scoring position, but both were left stranded to end the inning.

LSU broke the scoreless tie in the bottom of the third inning as Sydney Springfield led off with a walk. A sacrifice bunt attempt and an FSU throwing error allowed the Tigers to have runners on second and third with nobody out. An RBI single by Aliyah Andrews gave LSU a 1-0 lead, while an infield single loaded the bases with zero outs in the inning.

FSU starting pitcher Meghan King battled back with two straight strikeouts to Sahvanna Jaquish and Bailey Landry, before getting out of the jam with a fly out to right field.

The Tigers threatened again in the fourth inning, getting runners on the corners with one out after a pair of singles. Sydney Broderick and Warren combined to pick off the runner at third for the second out of the inning, while a groundout to third ended the threat.

LSU's Allie Walljasper took a no-hitter into the seventh, allowing just three baserunners before Broderick chopped a two-out single up the middle. A fly out to center ended the game to force the winner-take-all game three on Sunday.

King (27-3) picked up her third loss of the season - all against top 20 opponents - as she allowed an unearned run and four hits over 6.0 innings with one walk and four strikeouts.

Seminole Comeback Falls Short Versus LSU.
Florida State ends season after a 6-4 defeat to LSU in the NCAA Super Regional.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Despite having the go-ahead run on base in the sixth and the tying run at the plate in the seventh, the comeback by No. 4 Florida State (55-8-1) came up just short, falling by a score of 6-4 to No. 18 LSU (46-20) on Sunday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field. The loss ended the season for the Seminoles as LSU will advance to the 2017 Women's College World Series.

"Congratulations to LSU," said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. "It was a hard-fought game and that's completely what was expected today. I couldn't be more proud of this senior class and everything they've done for me and this program. Definitely thought we had it, but we showed a lot of grit and we worked for it. At no point in time do I think we didn't prepare ourselves for this moment, and with the passion of this team, we've done everything to fight and I'm really proud of our program right now."

The Seminoles put a pair of baserunners on the first inning, but both would be left stranded. Alex Powers matched the FSU all-time record with the 50th double of her career, tying Jessica van der Linden's total from 2001-04. Sydney Broderick followed with a two-out walk, but a pop out ended the inning.

LSU struck first in the top of the third inning as Sahvanna Jaquish hit a two-out, two-run double down the left field line to give the Tigers a 2-0 lead.

Florida State got a run back in the bottom of the third as Jessie Warren led off with a single up the middle. She came in to score on Powers' second double of the game, 19th of the season to match an FSU record and the 51st of her career to standalone on top of that list.

LSU added to its lead with three two-out runs in the top of the fourth. Shemiah Sanchez led off with a double, and following a walk to Amber Serrett, FSU starting pitcher Jessica Burroughs was replaced by Meghan King. Three consecutive singles extended LSU's lead to 5-1 before King ended the inning with a strikeout.

The Noles battled back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the frame to cut the lead to 5-3 after four innings. Cali Harrod opened with a double to left and the sophomore came in to score on an RBI single by Korina Rosario. After an intentional walk to Warren put runners on the corners with two outs, Ellie Cooper drove in her 39th RBI of the season on a single to left, chasing LSU starting pitcher Allie Walljasper from the game.

Carley Hoover came in to pitch for the Tigers and a wild pitch allowed the Seminole runners to move up to second and third, but a pop out to short ended the inning.

Freshman Dani Morgan led off the FSU sixth inning with a double to left center, setting a new FSU team record with 94 in a single season. Back-to-back walks to Rosario and Morgan Klaevemann loaded the bases with nobody out. Cooper hit a sacrifice fly to right to narrow the lead to 5-4, but a pair of groundouts kept LSU in the lead heading to the seventh inning.

The Tigers added a run in the top of the seventh on an RBI triple by Bailey Landry, as the senior lined a ball through the defensive shift all the way to the wall in left center for a 6-4 lead.

Needing a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning, Florida State got off to a great start as Broderick led off with a single to left. Leslie Farris pinch-ran at first and moved up to second on a wild pitch by Hoover. Carsyn Gordon followed with a single to center and tried to take second on the throw home, but the relay was cut off to retire her at second for the first out of the inning. Back-to-back fly outs ended the game.

Burroughs (27-5) gave up four runs on six hits over 3.2 innings in the loss, with one walk and four strikeouts. King allowed two runs on four hits, striking out two and issuing just one walk in her 3.1 innings.

Hoover (15-7) picked up the win after her 3.1 innings of relief, giving up three hits, one run and two walks, along with one strikeout. Walljasper allowed seven hits in 3.2 innings, with three runs, two walks and three strikeouts.
