Alabama Softball Stays Undefeated
Alabama senior Amanda Locke earned her first win in the circle since April 24, 2010, and provided the punch at the plate with four RBI.
Senior Jennifer Fenton was a perfect 3-for-3 with two runs and two RBI while rookie Danae Hays collected two hits and scored twice. Junior Courtney Conley continued to stay hot at the plate with two hits, two runs and two RBI.
Junior Lauren Sewell earned the save by pitching 1 1/3 innings of perfect relief. The right-hander entered the game with two on and two out in the top of the sixth and induced a pop up to end the threat.
Alabama has now scored eight or more runs 15 times this season and plated 10 or more seven times. UA earned it 22nd straight win over Ole Miss and has put double-digits on the board four straight times against the division foe.
After Mississippi scored a run to lead off the game Alabama promptly seized the lead with a two run bottom of the inning. Fenton led things off with a solo shot over the wall in left for her second homer of the season and then sophomore Kaila Hunt hit a deep sac-fly to right for her 27th RBI of the season.
The Tide exploded for five runs in the second inning as Locke supplied the big hit in the frame on a three run homer over the wall in center. The shot that went into the new Brickyard seats was her sixth on the season.
UA increased its lead to 9-2 when it plated two more in the third. Hays started the scoring when she drove in pinch-runner Keima Davis from second and then Conley doubled to left-center to score Hays.
After Mississippi made it interesting with five runs in the top of the fifth to pull within two, Locke walked with the bases loaded to move the lead to the final 10-7 score. The RBI was her fourth on the game.
Alabama will close the series with Mississippi in a Sunday matinee that will start at 1:30 p.m. CDT.
