No. 10 Florida State earns second ranked victory at No. 25 Auburn

AUBURN, Ala. -- Florida State took down its second ranked team of 2014 as they defeated No. 25 Auburn 5-4. It marked the second time this season and 20th time under head coach Lonni Alameda that the Seminoles have taken down a ranked team.

"It was a chilly night on the road against a quality opponent. I was really proud with how our team took on the challenge and came out with a win. We had some adversity in the fourth but the team stayed focused. Lacey once again was great for us in the circle and helped set the tone that the rest of the team followed."

The `Noles plated four runs in the second as Victoria East led off with a single. A walk from Ellie Cooper and a single by Alex Kossoff would load the bases. Tiffani Brown shot an RBI fielder's choice to second base and Courtney Senas' second walk of the game would load the bases for Maddie O'Brien.

O'Brien would take a 3-1 pitch back up the box that would nearly make it to the wall, scoring all three runs to break it out to 4-0 Florida State after two innings.

FSU would push across another run in the third inning as Cooper dropped in a single to center to score Lauren Harris who pinch ran after a Bailey Schinella single.

Lacey Waldrop (8-1) pitched another great game for Florida State, not giving up a hit until the fourth inning when the leadoff batter Jenna Abbott hit a home run over the fence in right. The Tigers would score three more runs in the inning, zero earned, after a couple of hits, a walk and a Seminole throwing error.

The Tigers would threaten in the bottom of the sixth getting the bases loaded with one away, but Brown made a great snag of a Emily Carosone line drive back up the box and fired to Cooper to complete the double play and end the inning.
