Alabama Softball Bombs Auburn
Alabama collected nine hits and plated eight runs to earn the series opening victory. The Tigers could only muster two hits and three base runners.
Kellie Eubanks started the Auburn series just as she concluded the Georgia Tech twin-bill – locked in. The senior opened the scoring with a solo shot that cleared the tree in centerfield in the third inning.
Alabama then tacked on three more in the fourth to bring the lead to 4-0. After Kelley Montalvo was hit by a pitch and Charlotte Morgan collected her second straight single through the left side freshman Cassandra Reilly-Boccia singled to left field to plate Montalvo. Ashley Holcombe then continued her hot hitting with a single to left field that brought in Morgan and Reilly-Boccia.
Morgan then drilled a double off the right-center wall for her third hit of the game and was promptly brought home on a home run off the scoreboard by Amanda Locke in the sixth inning. Whitney Larsen then drilled a two-run shot of her own off the scoreboard to bring in Eubanks and end the game.
Morgan led Alabama at the plate with three hits and two runs scored. Locke, Holcombe and Larsen drove in two runs apiece. Larsen belted her team-leading ninth home run, Locke hit her eighth and Eubanks connected on her second this week.
Kelsi Dunne earned her third straight shutout by scattering two hits in the complete game effort. Dunne started off the game by striking out the first seven outs of the game. The righthander fanned 11 to improve to 21-2 on the season.
