TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Georgia Tech softball team (6-13, 0-3 ACC) fell 8-0 in five innings against No. 1/2 Florida State (17-1-1, 3-0) in the series finale on Sunday afternoon at JoAnne Graf Field.
How It Happened
In the opening frame, the Seminoles drew a walk and a hit by pitch, and then capitalized on a Georgia Tech error to push one run across the plate.
With the bases loaded and one out in the fourth, FSU struck again on a sacrifice fly to right to make it 2-0. The Seminoles put up a six-run fifth inning to earn the win.
Florida State’s Jessica Burroughs (9-1) earned the win, pitching a complete game with one hit allowed.
Georgia Tech’s Jessica Kowalewicz tallied the first hit of the game for either team in the fourth inning with a single up the middle.
“To any team you can’t give them 10 extra base runners – eight walks, two errors,” head coach Shelly Hoerner said. “We only gave up three hits against the Seminoles, but giving additional base runners is not going to cut it. We have to be sharper all the way around. We learn from mistakes and grow, and we’re going to get better together as a team.”
The Jackets return home to take on Michigan State on Wednesday, March 8 at 6 p.m. on the ACC Network Extra.
