Florida Atlantic Shuts Out WKU 6-0 in C-USA Tournament

Florida Atlantic University softball cruised to a 6-0 victory over Western Kentucky in the first round of the Conference USA Championship Tournament on Wednesday. The fourth-seeded Owls advanced to play top-seeded Charlotte tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. eastern / 2:30 p.m. central.

Gabby Sacco, the Conference USA Pitcher of the Year, delivered another stellar performance with a two-hit shutout. Sacco now stands at 19-6 on the campaign with a 1.49 ERA, and today was her 15th complete game of the season.  

Olivia Peterson juiced a solo home run to right center field in the bottom of the second inning. The Second Team All-C-USA honoree ripped her team-leading seventh round-tripper of the season to get the scoring going.

Florida Atlantic kept the pressure on in the third and pushed over two more runs with a Maya Amm RBI single to right field. In the top of the fourth, the game entered a one-hour and 15-minute weather delay.

The delay did not slow down the Conference USA Pitcher of the Year, Sacco. Sacco had a runner on second with one out heading back into the game but kept the zero on the board and ended the fourth with a strikeout.

FAU kept its foot on the gas pedal, and scored one more in fifth with another Amm RBI, and two more in the sixth with a two-RBI base hit from Jesiana Mora.

Amm doubled up her season total in RBI, with three heading into today and three RBI in tonight’s game.

Peterson’s solo home run was her team-leading eighth of the season, while also leading the squad in RBIs now with 33.

Florida Atlantic’s offense now has 34 hits and 35 runs over the course of the last four games.

Riley Ennis had a strong game at the dish, going 2-3 with a double, walk and single.

Mora went 2-4 with two RBI and a run scored, while Cammeo Presutti went 2-4 with a run scored.

Sacco finished with a line of seven innings pitched, with only two singles, and two walks allowed while tallying four strikeouts.
