No. 16 FSU Beats VT, 3-1

April 18, 2010

BLACKSBURG, Va. – The No. 16 Florida State softball team ended its five-game losing streak with a 3-1 win over Virginia Tech on Sunday.

Senior Terese Gober started in the circle for the Seminoles (37-12, 9-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) and tossed five complete innings before she was replaced by junior Sarah Hamilton.

Gober finished the day with one earned run, five strikeouts and just three walks. Hamilton got the save as she struck out three and walked one in two innings of work against the Hokies (18-28, 5-10).

On offense, senior Carly Wynn had a big day with two RBIs and a stolen base. Freshman Morgan Bullock continued her ever-improving offensive ability by posting the other RBI.

Junior Ashley Stager and freshman Tiffani Brown both had a hit, too.

Florida State was held scoreless all the way until the fifth inning on Saturday.

Already trailing 1-0 following a first-inning Hokies score, FSU loaded the bases with just one out. Bullock’s slow roller back to the pitcher was enough for Courtney Rosen to slide safely into home for a tie ballgame.

Wynn then stepped to the plate and belted a single to right field with two strikes. The hit was enough to plate both Kristie McConn and Brittany Joseph and moved Bullock to third base.

Florida State will now play in its final midweek game of the season as it travels to Mobile, Ala. to take on South Alabama. That game will take place on April 21 at 5 p.m.

Also, fans that wish to attend a Dugout Club social with the softball team on Saturday, April 24 after FSU’s game against Georgia Tech, are encouraged to contact Sarah Reed of the Seminole Boosters. She can be reached via telephone at 850-645-8296 or via e-mail at sreed@admin.fsu.edu.
