FSU softball travels to face Troy

The No. 2 Florida State softball team (27-2) heads to Troy (18-7) on Wednesday for their only midweek game this week. The Seminoles take on the Trojans at 6 PM ET at the Troy Softball Complex. The game will be streamed live on ESPN+.

This will be the first of nine straight road games for the Seminoles. Florida State and Troy are meeting for the 44th time on Wednesday, with FSU leading the all-time series 30-12-1. The last time the two teams met was in April 2019 when the Noles won 4-1.

The Seminole defense has been stellar through the first half of the season as they lead the country in fielding percentage (0.988) and rank fifth nationally in ERA (1.34). The Florida State pitching staff is being led by Kathryn Sandercock, who has recorded 14 wins to rank fourth in the NCAA.

Through 29 games the Seminole pitching staff of Danielle Watson (9-2), Kathryn Sandercock (14-0), Mack Leonard (2-0), Emma Wilson (1-0) and Brianna Enter (1-0) have combined to go 27-2 with a 1.34 ERA. Watson has 83 strikeouts in 68 innings of work. Sandercock has recorded 83 strikeouts in 91.2 innings, allowing only 11 earned runs.

Combined, the FSU pitchers have 202 strikeouts in 198 innings of work while allowing the opponent to hit just .186.

Following the game against Troy, Florida State heads to FIU this weekend to take on the Panthers in a doubleheader on Saturday starting at 1 pm.
