Sophomore ace Georgina Corrick turned in a dazzling pitching performance for USF softball, one-hitting the ninth-ranked Florida Gators on Wednesday, but the Bulls were also one-hit and dropped the midweek contest 1-0.
Corrick (16-3, 1.10 ERA) had a no-hitter going through five innings before Cheyenne Lindsey (.200 BA) singled to third in the bottom of the sixth innings to begin the Gators rally. UF loaded the bases with one out and scored the lone run of the game on a sac fly to center. They loaded the bases again before a line out Corrick ended the inning.
The Bulls (29-15, 7-2 AAC) got a lead-off walk in the second inning from Bethaney Keen, but left her stranded after a strikeout and two pop outs ended any chance. Keen also doubled in the fourth with two outs, but was again stranded when Brooke Hartman struck out to end the inning.
Keen’s double was the last baserunner USF had on the night. Gators’ ace Kelly Barnhill retired the final ten batters she faced on her way to an complete game, one-hitter, including 11 strikeouts.
USF travels to Oviedo to face CFU in a three-game series this weekend.
