Braud Grand Slam Keys Alabama Win
Braud led the charge at the plate for Alabama, batting 3-for-4 with four RBI and a run scored. Junior Jazlyn Lunceford collected two hits, scored two runs and drove in a run while sophomore Jackey Branham homered and drove in two.
Traina went the distance to improve to 14-1 on the season. The rookie scattered four hits and struck out three while walking three.
Alabama opened the scoring in the second inning when Lunceford tattooed a lined shot off the wall in centerfield to plate junior Cassie Reilly-Boccia from second and then Branham got a hold of an off-speed pitch and deposited it over the wall in left-center to give the Tide an early 3-0 lead.
The Tide increased its lead to 7-0 by plating four runs in the sixth inning. All the runs came on one swing of the bat as Braud hit a grand slam, lining the shot over the wall in centerfield. The grand slam was the second of the series for Alabama and the third homer on the season for Braud.
The Tide will close out the series against the Gamecocks on Sunday. First pitch at Beckham Field is slated for Noon EDT (11 a.m. central time).
