Tide Softball Wins Three Over Georgia
"It was three great wins over a very good Georgia team," Alabama Coach Patrick Murphy said. "Our pitchers threw well against a team that is very good offensively and to end the series with a shutout victory is even more impressive."
Sophomore Kelsi Dunne picked up her third win of the series to move her record to 15-1 on the year. In seven innings of shutout pitching Dunne gave up five hits, walked one and struck out 10 batters. The victory is her sixth over a ranked opponent this season and the shutout is her eighth on the year.
Alabama was led at the plate by Kelley Montalvo and Cassandra Reilly-Boccia. Montalvo went 1-for-1 and scored a run while Reilly-Boccia batted 1-for-2 and accounted for both of the Tide's RBI..
After playing the first three innings scoreless, Alabama broke the tie in the bottom of the fourth by scoring two runs that would prove to be the difference.
Montalvo led off the inning with a walk then reached second on a fielder's choice that put Charlotte Morgan on first base. Reilly-Boccia then doubled down the left field line to score Montalvo and pinch-runner Lisa Elizondo, to give the Tide the 2-0 advantage.
Alabama will make up its rained out game against Samford this week on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the UA Softball Complex. The Tide will continue SEC play against the Gamecocks in Columbia, S.C. for a three-game series beginning on Friday.
