Stacey Zagol snapped Virginia's five-game losing streak by defeating #18 Florida State, 6-3, in the final game of the four-game roadtrip. The win also enabled Zagol to end a personal two-game losing streak. Sparking the win for Virginia was Amy Peay, who wnet 1-for-2 with a run scored and an RBI single. Peay reached base two other times in the game as she was hit twice by FSU's Kristy Fuentes. The six runs equaled the Cavs best offensive output of the season. UVa also scored six times in a 6-3 win over Indiana State on March 12.
Thanks, But No Thanks
By defeating FSU, Virginia avoided becoming the 900th victim of Florida State coach Dr. JoAnne Graf. Graf earned her 899th career victory as Fuentes no-hit the Cavaliers in the first game of the twin-bill, 8-0. Virginia postponned Graf's celebration as they stopped the Seminole in the second game. The win also ended the Seminoles five-game winning streak over Virginia. Prior to Sunday, the Cavs last victory over FSU came on April 23, 1994 (UVa 3, FSU 0).
On Deck This Week or "Welcome Home, This Is Virginia"
Virginia will attempt to play its home opener for the third time this season as Maryland comes to town for a doubleheader Tuesday, April 8, at 2:30 pm. Two prior attempts to play games at The Park both were cancelled by rain. The North-South Classic and a twin-bill against Virginia Tech had to be nixed thanks to Mother Nature. This season, the Cavaliers have played 16 games in Florida, three in North Carolina, and just two (both at Radford) in the state of Virginia. Later, Georgia Tech also comes to town for a three-game set that begins on Friday (3:00 pm) and concludes with a doubleheader on Saturday (1:00 pm).
