Softball shells UAB 8-0, remains perfect on the season

Alabama’s Med School didn’t have a chance


Wednesday night saw a combination of old and new faces move ‘Bama Softball’s record to 16-0, as the Crimson Tide laid waste to the UAB in an 8-0 shutout over Alabama’s Med School.

It was ‘Bama’s seventh shutout in sixteen games behind another strong outing by former CAA POY, Junior transfer Sarah Cornell. Cornell now has an ERA of .83, with a perfect 5-and-0 record and one save.

Alabama (16-0) scored in five of the six innings it came to the plate against UAB (8-8), including a four-run second inning. The win marks the seventh shutout of the season for the Crimson Tide and its seventh run-rule win. Three players had multi-hit performances, including a pair of home runs from junior Bailey Hemphill. Freshman Skylar Wallace went 2-for-3, hitting her second home run of the season, and senior Reagan Dykes tallied her third two-hit performance of the season. In the circle, junior Sarah Cornell (5-0) went the distance for the shutout victory, striking out five.

This has been a really impressive start to the season for Alabama, after hiccuping off the starting line the past few seasons. With a mix of talented freshmen, improved upperclassmen, and impactful transfers, Alabama is already in midseason form.

The team returns to action tomorrow against Michigan State.
