College Softball

The No. 4 Clemson Tigers and No. 6 Florida State Seminoles engaged in a mammoth college softball tussle this week. On Friday night, things got epic, but not in a positive way for the Tigers.

Clemson batter McKenzie Clark stood in with two outs in the bottom of the seventh with her Tigers trailing by a run. Clark laced a single to left field that skipped by FSU third baseman Kalei Harding. Left fielder Kaley Mudge went to field it, but the ball popped out of her glove.

Clark saw that and thought she could make a play on it and hustle into second base. But she was denied by Mudge, who fired the throw in to infielder Avery Weisbrook. Weisbrook tagged Clark… and the game was over!

Clark could be seen hanging her head in shame while the Seminoles rowdily celebrated the road victory.

FSU boasted all week and collected a sweep of their ACC rivals. In doing so, they made history. They swept Clemson in their first-ever trip there, they remain perfect against them, 7-0 all-time, and it’s the first road series win versus a TOp 5 opponent in the program’s history.

FSU is 32-7 after the big victory on Friday night.

The college softball world reacted to the epic and simultaneously horrible blunder that ended the thrilling affair.
