CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. –
Inclement weather stemming from a nor’easter that is about to engulf the northeastern United States canceled Sunday’s series finale between the Florida State softball team and Boston College. The Seminoles and Eagles moved the game up to 11 a.m. from 1 p.m. to try to get the contest in before the storm hit but the system moved in faster than expect, causing BC officials to cancel the game.
Behind two solid offensive performances the Seminoles took both games of Saturday’s doubleheader, 9-0 and 6-3 to improve to 31-19 overall, 8-6 in the ACC. Florida State has scored 30 runs in its last four games. Florida State pitcher Tiffany McDonald threw her sixth shutout of the year and Veronica Wootson hit her ninth home run of the season to pace the Seminoles in game one. FSU spotted the Eagles three runs in game two before scoring six unanswered runs, including the game winner on a two-run home run by Yuruby Alicart in the fifth.
The Seminoles are back in action on Tuesday (April 17) when they play host to Jacksonville in a 4 p.m. doubleheader. Following the second game, Florida State will host its annual home run derby that was rescheduled due to inclement weather during last week’s Florida A&M game.
