TALLAHASEE, Fla. – The No. 4 Florida State softball team (33-7, 11-1) blanked Jacksonville (18-21, 4-8) by a score of 2-0 on Wednesday night at JoAnne Graf Field. This is the Seminoles' eighth straight win and their 22nd consecutive win at home.

Starting off in the circle, Ali DuBois kept the Dolphins scoreless in the top of the first. Hallie Wacaser led off the bottom of the first inning with a walk. In an aggressive move, she stole second and advanced to third on an error.

Michaela Edenfield stepped up to the plate and hit one into center field to bring Wacaser home to start the Seminoles off strong with their first run of the night. Edenfield continues to lead the Noles in RBIs and has now tallied 36 this season.

DuBois continued to throw zeros up on the board as each team was scoreless in the second and third innings.

Mack Leonard was hit by a pitch to lead off the fourth inning. She eventually stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch. Amaya Ross then picked up an RBI on sacrifice fly for the second straight game to extend the lead to 2-0.

Royalty came in to relieve DuBois in the fourth inning and was terrific as she did not allow a hit in the final four innings while striking out three batters. Royalty was credited with the win to move to 7-1 on the year.

The Seminoles will be back in action this weekend at JoAnne Graf Field as they take on Virginia in a three game series.
