March 23, 2014
SMITHFIELD, R.I. – The Boston College softball team fell to No. 10/11 Florida State, 8-0 in five innings at Bryant's Conaty Park Sunday afternoon. The Eagles were only able to manage one hit off FSU starting pitcher Lacey Waldrop, who struck out seven batters and only allowed three to reach base on one hit and two walks in five inning of work.
The Seminoles jumped out to an early 4-0 lead with a four-run inning in the top of the first. Tiffani Brown singled to lead off the inning and then stole second. Courtney Senas and Maddie O’Brien then walked back-to-back before Bailey Schinella hit a two-run single up the middle. An error on Alana Dimaso allowed the third run to score, and Celeste Gomez hit a sacrifice fly to center field to plate the fourth run of the inning.
FSU tacked on three more runs in the top of the fourth inning with an RBI single to right field by Kelly Hensley and a two-run double to right center by Gomez, giving Florida State a 7-0 lead.
Senas scored the final run of the game for FSU after hitting a leadoff triple in the top of the fifth inning, and later scoring on a wild pitch.
Boston College got its second base runner of the game on a leadoff walk by Nicole D’Argento in the top of the fifth inning, and Taylor Coroneos followed that by breaking up Waldrop’s no-hitter with a single to left field. Waldrop then struck out the side to end the game.
Jordan Weed (5-4) started the game for BC and pitched 3.1 innings, allowing seven runs on six hits. D’Argento pitched 1.2 innings in the game, allowing one unearned run on one hit.
Florida State improved to 30-4, 9-2 ACC with the victory.
The Eagles are now 14-10 overall and 2-4 in ACC play. BC will be back in action Tuesday, March 25 for a single game at Masschusetts at 3 p.m.
