LSU’s Sahvanna Jaquish (2) crosses home plate after hitting a two-run home run in the first inning of LSU's 9-1 win over Florida Atlantic Sunday in the LSU Invitational in Tiger Park.

LSU senior catcher Sahvanna Jaquish drove in four runs and pitcher Carley Hoover entered in relief to hold off No. 4-seed Florida State, as the LSU softball team advanced to the Women's College World Series for the third-straight season, 6-4, on Sunday afternoon.

The Tigers will face UCLA in the opening round of the WCWS in Oklahoma City.

Florida State (55-8-1) hadn't lost a home game in 2017 until being upended by LSU on consecutive days.

No. 13-seeded LSU became the first team in NCAA Softball history to lose a Super Regional opener in consecutive seasons and advance to the Women's College World Series.

Jaquish was 2-for-3 with a walk and four RBI, while freshman Aliyah Andrews also had two hits and scored twice.
