Alabama Softball Wins Eighth In Row
Senior Charlotte Morgan and freshman Kayla Braud collected two hits apiece for Alabama while Morgan hit a home run and drove in three. Freshman Lauren Sewell held MVSU to just two hits and a run to lead Bama to its eighth straight win.
Alabama raced out to an early lead by scoring three runs in the first and batting around in the inning. Morgan started the scoring with a sharply hit single to left field that plated Braud, who bunted her way on to start the contest.
Junior Whitney Larsen then put down the sacrifice bunt but was able to beat it out and draw and errant throw that sailed down the right field line to score sophomore Cassie Reilly-Boccia. Alabama would cap off the inning with a bases loaded walk by sophomore Kendall Dawson that would score Larsen from third.
The next inning Morgan would strike again. This time the senior sent her 12th home run of the season over the centerfield fence. The blast also brought home Braud who started the inning with a leadoff walk.
In the fourth inning Braud continued the Tide scoring with a slap hit through the left side that plated fellow newcomer Keima Davis to make the score 6-0. The centerfielder reached on an error to start the inning and promptly stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch.
In the bottom of the fourth the Devilettes broke the no-hitter by Sewell with a double down the left field line by Ashley Hobbs. Hobbs later came in to score on a wild pitch to make the score 6-1.
Sewell improves to 8-1 on the season after striking out 10 and not issuing a walk. Lisa Jansen (11-10) was tagged with the loss after allowing five runs on four hits while walking five.
Alabama will return home to host a three-game weekend series against Mississippi. The two teams will start the series on Saturday with first pitch slated for 2 p.m.
