Moultrie, 4/20-21: (AB-10;R-4;H-2;RBI-1;BB-2;SO-0;PO-1;A-0;LOB-5)
“Florida pushed across three runs on two hits in the bottom of the second inning in the first game of the doubleheader to give the Orange and Blue an early 3-0 edge, thanks to a RBI single from senior Michelle Moultrie (Jacksonville, Fla.), while S. Fagan followed with a two-RBI triple after two FIU outfielder’s battled the sun on a sky high ball to right-center.”
“UF first capitalized on a FIU defensive miscue in the initial stanza after S. Fagan laid down a bunt single that allowed Moultrie, who led off with a walk, to scamper home from first after an errant throw for the early 1-0 Gator lead.”
“A sophomore Kasey Fagan (Dunnellon, Fla.) groundout allowed Medina to scamper to second for two runners in scoring position, while also turning over the UF lineup, but a hack from Moultrie found the right fielder’s glove for the third out before UF could push a run across.
“…Florida added its third run on a Mariah Dawson wild pitch, allowing Medina to cross home as Moultrie walked.”
