Alabama Softball At End Of The Road
The result was that Alabama, previously ranked number one in the nation, lost three games at LSU – 2-1 in 14 innings, 3-1 in 10 innings, and 2-0 in the losing no-hitter by Kelsi Dunne and Jackie Traina.
Maybe it's road fatigue. The Crimson Tide has been on the road for a couple of weeks, and finishes tonight – Tuesday – at Troy with first pitch at 6 p.m. CDT.

Troy is 25-18. Bama has an all-time record of 14-0 vs. the Trojans, including a win in this year's Alabama Classic in Vestavia Hills.
Following Troy and the end of the long road the Tide returns to Rhoads Stadium, where Bama is a perfect 17-0 this year. Bama will host Mississippi State with games at 6:30 p.m. Friday and 1:30 p.m. both Saturday andSunday.

Juniors Jennifer Fenton and Amanda Locke have hit a team-best three home runs each, while Fenton has hit .321 and Locke has added a .318 average. In the circle, freshman Jackie Traina sports a 2-2 record with an 0.58 earned run average while fanning 26 in 24 innings. Senior Kelsi Dunne is 4-1 with a 0.99 ERA. The right-hander has struck out 56 in 42 1/3 innings.
