Corey McFeeley/ THE GATEPOST

In a doubleheader versus the MCLA Trailblazers on March 30, the Rams were ready to dominate from the start.

The Rams were able to score four runs off just four hits in the first inning of the leadoff game.

Later in the next inning, Grace Caughey was able to hit a double to right field bringing in two more scores to extend the lead to six runs.

The very next inning, the Rams put up five more runs off just five hits.

The game ended in five innings with a score of 11-0.

The Rams were able to come out and show they have explosive offensive and defensive abilities in the first game of the double header.

Starting pitcher Kelsi Gunarathne set the all-time leading strikeout record at FSU in the first game as well.

The two games added to her total number of 361 strikeouts during her career. 

With the win, the Rams move to 1-0 in the conference and 6-9 overall on the season. 

The Rams again took on MCLA in the second game of the doubleheader at Maple Field.

The Rams may not have been as strong on offense in the second game of the double header, but they definitely showed up with their defense.

Thanks to a six-strikeout performance from Gunarathne, as well as a breakout sixth inning, the Rams released mayhem with five late runs. 

This allowed FSU to win 5-0 in the final game of the day.

The Rams’ record now stands at 2-0 in the MASCAC and 7-9 overall.
