FSU softball shuts down BC in series opener

The No. 2 Florida State Softball team (26-1, 6-1 ACC) won game one of the series against Boston College 4-0 on an overcast Saturday afternoon. The game was delayed two hours due to bad weather in Tallahassee.

Florida State struck first in the first inning. Kaley Mudge led off the game for FSU with a single up the middle. A Sydney Sherrill and Devyn Flaherty walk loaded the bases with two outs. Boston College’s Susannah Anderson then walked Mack Leonard with the bases loaded scoring the first run.

The Seminoles scored the final three runs of the game in the third inning as they went on to win 4-0. FSU loaded the bases once again, this time with no outs. After a play at the plate that resulted in the first out of the inning, BC’s Anderson had a wild pitch that scored Flaherty from third. Jahni Kerr then doubled to center field to score Hallie Wacaser and Leonard, making it 4-0.

Kathryn Sandercock was once again stellar in the circle for the Seminoles. She pitched her fourth complete game of the season and her fourth solo shutout of the year. She only allowed four hits, facing the minimum of just 15 batters from the second through sixth innings.

BC fell to 12-10, 1-3.
