Softball Drops Doubleheader at Florida State
April 6, 2013
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Boston College softball team dropped both games of a doubleheader versus Florida State on Saturday afternoon in Tallahassee.
Ten Florida State runs in the first three innings doomed the Eagles in 10-0 shutout loss in game one of the afternoon doubleheader.
The duo of Lacey Waldrop (15-6) and Jessica Nori held BC in check – allowing just four combined hits over five innings of play. Chelsea Dimon fell to 7-9 on the season – allowing 10 earned runs on seven hits over three innings. Stephanie Lord tossed a perfect inning in relief for the Eagles.
The Seminoles took an early 2-0 lead in the first inning with a Courtney Senas two-run homer to left-center and then tacked on four-run innings in the second and third to blow the game open.
Megan Cooley led the Eagles with two hits in her three at bats in game one.
In game two, BC once again was held in check, this time by Seminoles hurler Monica Perry (14-7) as she went the distance – allowing just two hits over seven innings. Stephanie Lord (0-3) got her third start of the season – allowing four earned runs on nine hits over six innings.
Senas set the table for an early 1-0 FSU lead in the first with a triple before being plated by an RBI groundout from Maddie O’Brien. O’Brien struck again in the third inning with a two-run single to put the Seminoles up 3-0. Celeste Gomez drove in FSU’s fourth and final run of the game with a sacrifice fly in the sixth.
