TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The bad news is the North Carolina A&T softball team lost 13-0 on Saturday.

The good news is the Aggies are still near the top of the MEAC Southern Division standings after splitting Saturday's doubleheader at Lady Rattler Complex. Sabrina Edmonds hit her fourth home run of the season, and Juanita Jernigan went 3-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI to lead A&T to a 9-5 win in the first game.  

Edmonds and Jernigan lead the team in home runs. The Aggies improved to 12-19 overall and 5-1 in the MEAC. They have won five out of their last six games. A two-out rally in the sixth inning helped the Aggies pull away in the first game.

Trailing 4-3, Zabresha Blakeney led off the inning with a single. Tiffany Macklin and Erica Turner popped out to bring Florida A&M reliever Taylor Thomas closer to getting out of the inning. Dominique Smith ended those plans with a single. Detavia Kenan followed with an RBI double to tie game.

Addie Dozier replaced Thomas, but didn't get help from her defense as Tranea Jones reached on a fielding error by shortstop Alyssa Weaver. The miscue allowed Smith and Kenan to score for a 6-4 A&T lead.

A&T padded its lead in the seventh with three more runs. Blakeney and Tiffany Macklin both drove in runs in the inning. The Aggies scored their third run on another Rattlers error. With two outs, Florida A&M first baseman Genesis Lopez bobbled a groundball hit by Smith. The error allowed Macklin, who reached on a triple, to score for a 9-4 A&T lead.

The Rattlers (16-24, 2-4) were able to score a run off of A&T starter Ashira Dobison in the seventh. Tera Gainer singled through the left side to score Jasmin Donaldson, who reached on a leadoff double. The Rattlers kept the threat going with a double to right center by Dozier. With two runners in scoring position, Dobison (11-11) picked up her fourth straight win by striking out Venica Brown and Kieifi Myrick to end the game.

The Aggies will step outside of the conference on Tuesday when they travel to Lynchburg, Va., to face Liberty in a 2 p.m., doubleheader. They return to conference action on Saturday at Savannah State.
