Tide In Position To Win SEC Title
With the win, Alabama improves to 45-5 on the season and 21-4 in Southeastern Conference play.
With the Bama win and a Florida loss, the Crimson Tide once again reclaims sole possession of first place in the SEC standings.
Alabama will return home to host Florida in a series that will determine the SEC championship. The first game of the series is set for Friday with first pitch slated for 6:30 p.m., at Rhoads Stadium. The team that wins two games in the series will be regular season winner.
At Arkansas, Alabama banged out 10 hits with sophomore Kaila Hunt leading the way with a 3-for-3 effort. Sophomore Jackie Traina batted 2-for-2 and earned her 29th win in the circle. The right-hander allowed one run on five hits and struck out 10 in her 22nd complete game of the season.
After Devon Wallace once again stung the Crimson Tide with a home run, Traina returned the favor. The sophomore blasted a two-run home run over the wall in right-center in the second inning to give Alabama a 2-1 lead.
Alabama added two more runs in the third. Hunt hit a sac-fly that scored Jennifer Fenton and then Jazlyn Lunceford smashed a double off the wall in left to score pinch-runner Keima Davis.
Senior Amanda Locke increased the lead to 5-1 with her 16th home run of the season. Locke turned on a 1-2 pitch and sent it well over the wall in left.
