Bama Softball sweeps South Carolina

Posted: Updated:

The Alabama softball team held off a late South Carolina rally to earn a 7-6 victory to earn the series sweep, Sunday afternoon at the new Carolina Softball Stadium. With the victory, the Tide improves to 26-3 overall and 4-2 in Southeastern Conference play.

It took four innings for the Tide bats to get going, scoring all seven runs in a two-inning span, with four in the fourth and three in the fifth. Alabama banged out 12 hits, led by senior Kayla Braud, who batted 3-for-5 with three RBI and a run scored. Sophomore Jadyn Spencer batted 2-for-4 with two runs scored.

Junior Jackie Traina (12-2) earned the win, allowing three runs on six hits while striking out three in 5 1/3 innings. Traina also added a solo home run, her second in as many games.

Once again the Tide had to fight its way back into the ballgame. After facing a 2-0 deficit entering the fourth inning, Alabama plated four runs, all with two outs to seize a 4-2 lead.
