Jenn Mossadeghi scored two runs in a 6-1 win vs. Jacksonville State

The Florida Gator softball team is on a season-high seven game win streak after defeating Jacksonville State 6-1 in its second victory of the day Friday at the Florida Atlantic Tournament.

UF (24-8) scattered eight hits, compared to three from JSU (13-15).

Freshman pitcher Amanda Moore (Tuscaloosa, Ala./Hillcrest) pitched a complete game with five strikeouts. The Gators gave up JSU's only run to the leadoff batter in the first. But, they quickly rallied for the lead on two hits and an error in the second inning.

"We could have let them get more in the fourth and the sixth," Coach Karen Johns said, "But, credit our defense and Amanda; they adjusted. Our offense, too, gave us breathing room in the sixth."

JSU put runners on with two hits in the fourth and with two errors in the sixth. The Gators thwarted the first threat by tagging a force at home. Moore forced two groundouts to get out of the second. In the frame following each, Moore sat the batters down in order, including two strikeouts in the seventh.

Third baseman Jenn Mossadeghi's (Jupiter, Fla./The King's Academy) had a single in the sixth which turned into three Gator runs thanks to a throwing error from catcher Lauren Buck. UF put two runners on prior with a walk and a base hit. Junior Kortney Edge (Camarillo, Calif./Adolfo) pinch hit and kept the scoring going with a single through the right side, scoring second baseman Prissie Walden (Jacksonville, Fla./Frist Coast), who reach on a base hit.

UF will continue round-robin play Saturday. It will play host FAU at 4 p.m. and Michigan State at 6 p.m.
