Florida Tops Virginia 1-0
TAMPA, Fla. - Florida scored an unearned run in the top of the seventh to spoil a no-hitter by first-year UVa pitcher Stacey Zagol.
Making her first collegiate start, Zagol (7.0 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 11 K) had her perfect game bid ended in the fifth inning when the Cavaliers defense made an error. Meanwhile, Florida's Betty Sakizzi was also setting down opposing batters with ease.
Sakizzie entered the seventh inning with a perfect game of her own. In Florida's half of the seventh, the Gators leadoff batter reached on the Cavaliers fourth error of the afternoon. After stealing second and third base, Gator Kris Sandler knocked in the games only run with an RBI ground-out.
Cavalier SS Lori Reese ended Sakizzie's perfect game bid with a two-out single in the bottom of the seventh. However, that would be the only hit Virginia could muster as Zagol was the losing pitcher despite not allowing a hit.
