3A softball: St. Petersburg Catholic lets lead, win slip away late

Class 3A

Barons let lead, win slip away late

ST. PETERSBURG — St. Petersburg Catholic's playoff run ended Friday with a tight loss to Mulberry, 6-5.

The Barons led in the seventh 5-4 before pitcher Chloe Saganowich allowed a game-tying triple to Autumn Terwilliger. Terwilliger scored the winning run on a base hit by Lindsay Nolan two batters later. St. Petersburg Catholic could not mount a threat in the bottom of the inning against reliever Melanie McNally, who threw three innings without allowing a run.

The Barons were unable to recover from several mental mistakes early in the game. With two outs in the bottom of the fourth, the team committed three consecutive errors, leading to two unearned runs. They committed four total errors.

"How can you make that many errors and win?" St. Petersburg Catholic coach Tommy Fabian said. "You get to a point where you start getting to a higher and higher level of competition. Who wins is who makes less mistakes."

Madison Saganowich led St. Petersburg Catholic's offensive charge out of the third spot in the order, going 2-for-4 with a run scored.

Her counterpart in Mulberry's lineup, however, Toni Marzello, raised the bar, going 4-for-4 with a run scored and two RBIs.

"They can be proud of what they did," Fabian said. "We just had one of those days when we didn't play as well as we should."

    TALLAHASSEE — For the first few minutes Saturday, Florida State's James Blackman looked like a true freshman making his first start at quarterback for a big-time program.

    College

    TALLAHASSEE — It's easy to blame No. 12 Florida State's 27-21 loss to North Carolina State on the injury to starting quarterback Deondre Francois or the three-week layoff because of Hurricane Irma.

    It would also be wrong.
