Burroughs, Waldrop dazzle in FSU sweep

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- As the offense exploded for 17 runs, No. 10 Florida State (36-11, 16-3 ACC) took both games of the Saturday doubleheader against Virginia (15-35, 4-16 ACC). The Seminoles earned a 9-1 victory in six innings in Game 1 and recorded an 8-0 win in five innings against the Cavaliers in Game 2.

Florida State has posted four consecutive run-rule victories against Virginia, dating back to 2014.

Ellie Cooper went 4-for-7 and drove in four runs,while Jessica Warren racked up three hits on the day and three RBIs.

Jessica Burroughs dominated the first game in the circle, going the distance (five innings) and striking out 12. She allowed only one hit and walked two.

Lacey Waldrop got the win in the second game, allowing one run on four hits while striking out five over six innings of work.

“Great day today and even though we started off a bit slow in each game, we were able to turn it around and take two wins,” FSU head coach Lonni Alameda said. “Jessica and Lacey were confident in the circle and our defense made plays behind them all day. We made some adjustments to have some big innings at the plate, maybe a little later in the game than we’d like, but we came through with some solid hits in key situations.”
