TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The No. 16 Florida State softball team couldn’t complete the series sweep of NC State Sunday afternoon as the Seminoles fell to the Wolfpack, 3-1.
With the loss, FSU’s record moves to 36-8 overall and 8-4 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. NC State, which had not won in Tallahassee since the 2006 season, is now 24-17 overall and 7-5 in the league.
Junior ace Sarah Hamilton started Sunday and tossed four and 2/3 innings. She allowed just one earned run and two walks while striking out seven Wolfpack batters.
Senior Terese Gober replaced Hamilton in the fifth and went on to toss two and 1/3 innings while giving up one earned run and achieving three strikeouts.
NC State had five total hits in the winning effort.
NC State jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first thanks to Landon Warren’s solo homerun over the left field wall.
But it didn’t take long for FSU to get that one run back. In the bottom of the third, Wynn led off with a triple that slammed into the center field wall. Freshman Tiffany Brown’s knock to second base was then enough to push Wynn across home plate for a 1-1 score.
A fielding error by the Seminoles in fifth led to another Wolfpack run.
Florida State’s next outing will be a big one. The ‘Noles now welcome rival Florida to town on Wednesday, April 14 for a doubleheader starting at 5 p.m.
The first game will be aired live on Sun Sports.
