No. 18 Texas A&M blanks No. 1 Florida State 2-0

  Texas A&M downed the No.1 team in the nation on Thursday night.

CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif. – The No. 18 Texas A&M softball team shutout No. 1 Florida State 2-0 behind a 15-strikeout performance from Samantha Show Thursday night at the Mary Nutter Classic.

The East Bernard, Texas native gave up only four hits in her fifth victory of the season and tied a career high in strikeouts. For the season, Show has struck out 35 in 30.2 innings and holds a 0.46 ERA.

Kaitlyn Alderink broke the deadlock in the sixth with a two-run homer to left center. Following Keeli Milligan's second single of the game, Alderink sent the 2-1 pitch over the wall for her first dinger of the season.

The Seminoles threatened to score in the fifth as Ellie Cooper sent a towering fly ball to deep center but Erica Russell robbed Cooper of a home run to keep the game scoreless.

FSU's Jessica Burroughs was saddled with the loss to move to 4-1 on the season.

The Aggies return to action at noon CT on Friday against No. 21 Arizona State.
