Women's College World Series | Florida State Shuts Out Michigan For The Second Time This Season

Rich DeCray

After two scoreless inning, the Florida State Seminoles broke the drought as Morgan Klaevemann crossed the plate on a wild pitch. The play proved to be the difference maker in an elimination game between the Noles on the Michigan Wolverines. Moving on behind the 1-0 final, FSU must win two games against the Auburn Tigers to earn a spot in the championship series.

Asked about the trial ahead, Head Coach Lonni Alameda said "we are familiar with Auburn. We outplayed Auburn before. They are a great offensive team, and we're probably going to see a lot of looks in the circle as they bring a lot of pitchers to us."

Leading the way in a pitcher's dual, Jessica Burroughs faced 26 batters while throwing a complete game shutout. Surrendering a mere two walks the senior remained poised in a tense situation. "It's my job out there to keep spinning it," she said, "and get the defense in there to work on the offense. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes the offense is on fire, sometimes it's not. But that's what I signed up for, and I want to be in that situation, and I think I was the most relaxed today than I have been in a while."

Notes:

  • Morgan Klaevemann recorded the only hit of the game for the Seminoles in the bottom of the third inning.
  • Jessica Burroughs sports a 0.46 ERA during her 15.1 innings in the WCWS
  • The shutout marked only the second of the season for the Michigan Wolverines, both coming at the hands of FSU
