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.

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 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.

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.

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 8, STANFORD 2
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.

02/24/2017, Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, Palm Springs, Ca

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.

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.

FLORIDA STATE 2, UCLA 1
02/26/2017, Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, Palm Springs, Ca

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
