ALABAMA SOFTBALL EARNS TWO WINS OVER WEEKEND
Alabama softball continued its fall season yesterday with wins over Wallace State 10-1 and Montevallo 7-0 improving to 4-0.
Against Wallace State, freshman pitcher Lexi Kilfoyl pitched a complete game in the circle. She finished striking 11 batters out, only allowing one run on four hits.
Alabama scored with senior Bailey Hemphill getting a solo shot and KB Sides hitting a two-run shot two batters later. Sides finished the day 3-of-3 with four RBI’s. The Crimson Tide had four runs in the third and three runs in the fifth inning.
“KB Sides showed off the power that she has shown us in practice all fall,” head coach Patrick Murphy said in a press release.
Finishing the day against Montevallo, Alabama saw big performances from several key players. Seniors Krystal Goodman and Sarah Cornell pitched 7.0 shutout innings and had 10 strikeouts.
Graduate transfer Alexis Mack has been spectacular thus far in a Crimson Tide jersey. Last week, she finished 4-of-4 with an RBI single in the fourth inning, this week she showcased her speed. She hustled to first on an infield single before rounding the bases to score on an errant throw.
Freshman Savannah Woodard finished 2-of-3 at the plate, including a triple, and two scores. Kilfoyl earned her first home run as a member of the Crimson Tide.
“It was fun to see Lexi Kilfoyl hit her first home run at Alabama; she’s going to hit a lot in her career,” Murphy said. “Savannah Woodard was awesome in game two.”
Alabama finishes its fall season Sunday, Oct. 27, at Rhoads Stadium with a 10-inning contest against Marion Military Institute at 1:30 p.m. CT.
