Softball Falls Short Against Florida State, 7-3
April 7, 2013
Stephanie Lord (0-4) got the start again for the Eagles as the Seminoles registered 14 hits and seven earned off the freshman hurler. Lacey Waldrop (16-6) got the win in relief of starter Monica Perry. Waldrop allowed two earned runs on two hits over four innings of relief for Florida State.
BC jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the top half of the first on DiMaso's sixth homer of the season. The Seminoles responded with three runs of their own in the bottom half of the inning on the strength of Courtney Senas' RBI triple and Kirstin Austin's run-scoring single off of Lord.
Morgan Bullock's two-run single in the third extended the FSU lead to 5-1 before Jessie Daulton blasted her first career collegiate home run in the fifth to trim the deficit to 5-2.
The Seminoles tacked on two more runs in the bottom of the fifth but Lord limited the damage - escaping a bases loaded jam to keep the score at 7-2. BC got one run back in the sixth as Chelsea Dimon scored before Maria Pandolfo was tagged out in a rundown to end the inning.
The Eagles tried to rally in the seventh - getting two runners on base, including Daulton's second hit of the game but FSU's Jessica Nori closed door as Megan Cooley was forced out at second to end the game.
Boston College will open up their 2013 home schedule against UMass on Tuesday at Shea Field - first pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m.
Team Records: Boston College (9-21, 1-8 ACC); Florida State (31-13, 10-3 ACC).
