THE FLATS — Georgia Tech softball (19-14, 5-3 ACC) made a late rally in the seventh but came up short against No. 11/14 Florida State (28-6, 8-0), 4-2, in the second game of the series on Saturday afternoon.

How it happened:
Florida State made it onto the scoreboard in the top of the first, facing off against senior Emily Anderson in the circle. Leading off with a double, a walk and a hit by pitch, the Seminoles loaded the bases. A wild pitch plated the runner from third for the first score of the game and put runners on second and third. A ground out to freshman Lilly Hooper at second, scored the runner from third and gave Florida State the 2-0 lead.

The Jackets responded in the bottom of the first. Leading off, freshman Cameron Stanford drilled a stand-up double to left center. She advanced to third on a throwing error by the catcher. Junior Katie Krzus singled to left center to plate Stanford and bring the score to 2-1.

The Seminoles added one more run in the top of the second off a single up the middle to move the tally to 3-1. Florida State brought the score to 4-1 in the top of the fourth with a one-run home run over right center.

Tech rallied in the bottom of the seventh after holding the score at 4-1. Sophomore Crosby Huckabay hit a solo home run off the top of the center field fence, her fifth of the season, to bring the tally to 4-2. The Jackets didn’t finish out the rally and came up short at 4-2.

Up next:
The series finale is on Sunday at 1 p.m. on ACC Network Extra. All are invited to Mewborn Field at 12 p.m. for a pregame spring egg hunt.
