TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State senior pitcher Terese Gober tossed a no-hitter Wednesday night and the No. 20 Seminole softball team defeated South Alabama, 2-0, in Mobile, Ala.
Gober’s gem helped the `Noles earn their 38th victory of the season in what was the team’s 50th game of the year. The McDonough, Ga. native pitched a complete game and fanned six Jaguars (18-2) batters en route to the third no-hitter of her career and second of the season.
FSU got an RBI each from senior Carly Wynn and true freshman Tiffiani Brown.
Florida State couldn’t muster much offense to go along with Gober’s dominance in the circle until midway through the game.
In the top of the fifth inning, senior Tory Haddad reached base on a fielder’s choice and then advanced to second on a throwing error by South Alabama. After senior Courtney Rosen was hit by a pitch, Wynn drew a walk to jam the bases with two outs.
Brown then made the most of the opportunity with a clutch RBI single that plated Haddad.
The Seminoles added an insurance run in the top of the final inning when Wynn’s sacrifice fly scored true freshman Morgan Bullock from third.
Wednesday’s contest marked FSU’s final midweek game of the season and will followed by the home finale this weekend. Georgia Tech is slated to come to town for a critical Atlantic Coast Conference series.
All the action gets started on Saturday at 1 p.m. and will be followed by the second game of a doubleheader at 3 p.m.
There will be a Dugout Club social following the second game on Saturday that is free to Dugout Club members and just $5 for everyone else that wishes to attend. For more information, contact Sarah Reed in the Seminole Boosters office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Sunday, Florida State will finish off the weekend by celebrating its seniors in a 12 p.m. game against the Yellow Jackets.
