Burroughs, No. 10 FSU buries Colgate

  Jessica Burroughs struck out 13 batters and only allowed two hits in five innings pitched.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Behind a 13-strikeout performance by Jessica Burroughs and a 10-hit outburst at the plate, No. 10 Florida State (23-6) earned an 8-0 win against Colgate (4-7) in five innings at JoAnne Graf Field.

“It was a fun game for our team tonight, because that’s what softball should be,” FSU head coach Lonni Alameda said. “Even if you have a game like Sunday, you can’t let that affect you moving forward and I think we did that today. We played loose, we had fun and played Florida State softball.

“Jessica was great in the circle and showed the hard work she’s been putting in. The hitters did great and were able to have several quality at-bats as they continue to trust the process and the next-pitch mentality.”

Burroughs was dominant from the first pitch as the Raiders did not put a ball in play until the top of the fourth inning when Katie Bushee led off the frame with a base hit through the left side.

Burroughs struck out the first seven batters she faced and finished with 13 for the game. It marked the second-highest strikeout total of Burroughs’ career, just behind the 14 punchouts she had in 7.0 innings against Kentucky on February 8, 2015.

Burroughs improved to 8-3 on the season ended the game with 5.0 innings pitched, allowing just two hits and zero walks. Thirteen of the 15 Colgate outs were strikeouts, along with a foul out to first base in the third inning and a fly out to right field in the fourth.

The Seminoles used two big innings at the plate to defeat the Raiders -- a three-run second inning and a five-run fifth.
