Sandercock has 10 strikeouts as FSU completes sweep of GT

The No. 3 Florida State softball team earned a series sweep over Georgia Tech with a 3-2 win on Sunday afternoon.

Kathryn Sandercock recorded a career-high 10 strikeouts in five innings of relief. Danielle Watson pitched the first two innings for the Noles, recording two strikeouts.

The Seminoles (23-1, 5-1 ACC) got on the board in the first inning on a two-out rally. Kalei Harding walked and advanced to second after a Michaela Edenfield singled to left field. A passed ball then put runners on second and third for Devyn Flaherty who singled through the left side, giving the Seminoles an early 1-0 lead.

Georgia Tech (15-8, 0-6) retaliated in the second inning, taking a 2-1 lead. GT had a two-out rally of its own. The Yellow Jackets had runners on first and second as a result of two walks. Ella Edgmon then gave the Yellow Jackets the lead on a single to right-center, scoring two.

FSU took the lead back in the top of the third after Edenfield hit a ball that traveled over the trees in center field. The two-run shot was her eighth home run of the season and gave FSU a 3-2 lead.

Nothing was going for either team after the third inning as the Noles went on to win 3-2, earning their first ACC series sweep of the season.
