TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – In its first game of the Seminole Classic, Florida State fell 2-1 to East Carolina for the first time since 1994 at JoAnne Graf Field on Saturday afternoon. The Seminoles continue to lead the all-time series with ECU, 21-2, and are now 9-3 on the season while the Pirates improve to 5-5.
Picking up her second loss this season was junior pitcher Terese Gober who managed to strike out a pair of batters but gave up four hits and two runs, both unearned. The righty’s ERA is now 1.47 after five innings of work as she was relieved by sophomore Sarah Hamilton in the bottom of the sixth. The Tallahassee native also struck out two of the three batters faced but was unable to secure the win for FSU.
The Seminoles were on the board early in the second inning after Kristie McConn reached first on a bunt then immediately stole second. The sophomore would score the lone run for FSU off an RBI single to centerfield from senior Michelle Snyder who went 2-for-3 to lead the Noles.
The Garnet and Gold must regroup to take on Indiana at 7:00 p.m. tonight to close out day one of the Seminole Classic. Live stats will be available through GameTracker on Seminoles.com.
