Noles Power Past Panthers

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – Sydney Sherrill’s three-run home run in the second inning was the difference as the No. 3 Florida State softball team (18-0, 1-0) took down Pitt (8-6, 0-1) by a score of 3-0 in the Noles ACC opener on Friday night at JoAnne Graf Field.

After a scoreless first inning, the Noles offense took advantage of two free bases to strike first. With runners on first and second, Sherrill drove a ball over the left-field fence for her first home run of the year. That home run moved Sherrill to sixth all-time on the FSU home run charts with 35 career home runs.

Kathryn Sandercock had another terrific performance for the Noles. The two-time reigning ACC Pitcher of the Week tossed her third complete-game shutout of the season allowing just one hit and striking out seven Panthers. Sandercock has now allowed one run or less in nine appearances this season.

The Noles will continue their series with the Panthers tomorrow at 1 p.m. and Sunday at noon. Sunday’s matchup will be broadcasted live on ACCNX.
