TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—The Virginia softball team dropped the final game of a three-game series at No. 25 Florida State, 2-0, Monday night (April 15) at JoAnne Graf Field in Tallahassee, Fla. With the loss, the Cavaliers fell to 18-22 (3-12 ACC), while the Seminoles improved to 34-14 (13-2 ACC).
In the bottom of the second inning, FSU’s Maddie O’Brien hit a solo home run to center that was just out of the out-stretched glove of senior center fielder Taylor Williams (Woodbridge, Va.).
The Seminoles added an insurance run in the fourth, when Kelly Hensley tripled and scored on a Morgan Bullock RBI single.
Senior Melanie Mitchell (White Plains, Md.) (13-13) pitched her school-record 112th complete game, allowing four hits and two runs with six strikeouts in six innings.
FSU’s Lacey Waldrop (17-7) pitched the shutout for the win, allowing two hits with ten strikeouts.
Next up, the Cavaliers host NC State for a three-game series April 20-21 at The Park. Saturday’s doubleheader and Sunday’s single game are slated for noon starts.
