No. 17 Softball Overpowers Youngstown State



March 25, 1998

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- After taking the first game 1-0, the No. 17 Florida State softball team erupted for 13 hits in game two and defeated Youngstown State 10-2 and extended its win streak to 14 games while improving to 34-12 on the season. The Lady Penguins fall to 1-12 on the year.

Pitching ace Jennifer White improved her record to 24-7 with a two-hit win in game one. White struck out eight and walked no one in seven innings of work. She also recorded the game-winning RBI with a single to center in the fourth inning which scored Misty Molin.

Corrie Williams' two-out home run in the third inning of game two increased the Tribe's lead to 8-2. It was Williams' second blast of the season. She had four RBIs in the contest. FSU scored two more runs in the sixth inning with two out off of a Tami Post double, giving the Tribe an eight-run lead and the game was called. Post had two hits in the game and drove in three runs. Junior pitcher Stacy Venable picked up the complete game victory and improved to 8-4.
