THE FLATS – Georgia Tech softball (19-15, 5-4 ACC) drops the series finale, 11-3, in six innings to No. 11/14 Florida State on Sunday afternoon.
How it happened:
Tech took the first lead of the game in the bottom of the first after senior Emily Anderson held the Seminoles scoreless in the top of the inning. With one out on the board, senior Draven Sonnon drew a walk to reach base. With two strikes on her, junior Katie Krzus sent her eighth home run of the season over left center to plate Sonnon for the 2-0 lead.
Florida State made its way onto the board in the third, plating one off a double to right center to score a runner from third.
Tech added to its tally in the third. Freshman Bianca Mora drew a walk to lead off the inning, forcing the Seminoles to make a pitching change. Sophomore Sydney Stavro entered at first to pinch run for Mora and freshman Cameron Stanford advanced her to second with a walk. A single off the barrel of Krzus loaded the bases and a wild pitch brought in Stavro to make the score 3-1.
The Seminoles responded in the top of the fourth. Putting a runner on base with a lead-off walk, a triple to center field brought around the runner to bring the tally to 3-2.
Florida State took over the lead in the top of the sixth, banging out eight hits to plate nine runs. The rally brought the Seminoles’ score to 11-3 for the win. Anderson earned the loss with freshman Naomi Dickerson pitching less than an inning in relief.
The Jackets are back at Mewborn on Wednesday for some good old-fashioned hate with in-state rival No. 6 Georgia. First pitch is slated for 7 p.m. on ACC Network Extra.
