Alabama scored three runs in the seventh inning and used a one-hit gem from senior Kelsi Dunne to down UAB, 3-0 Tuesday night. With the win, the Crimson Tide improves to 11-0 on the season. On her birthday, freshman Ryan Iamurri was the one giving the gift as she slapped in what proved to be the winning run, when she plated junior Jazlyn Lunceford on a grounder to short in the top of the seventh inning. Sophomore Courtney Conley then swiped home after she eluded a pickoff attempt and then Iamurri was able to complete the scoring, crossing the plate after a wild pitch.  Dunne proved to be too much for the Blazers as she has grown a liking to the UAB circle. After a 17 strikeout performance last season in Birmingham, she followed it up with a 14 punchout, complete game effort Tuesday night. After the win, the right-hander improves to 6-0 on the season.  Lunceford started off the rally in the final frame as she drove a liner off the wall in left-center. She was then bunted over to third by junior Kendall Dawson and brought home by Iamurri.

Texas A&M  earned its fourth shutout of the season and improved its winning streak to eight with a 6-0 defeat of Texas State Tuesday at the Aggie Softball Complex. The Aggies took an early 2-0 lead on the Bobcats. The first two runs of the game came in the bottom of the first when senior Rhiannon Kliesing slammed her sixth home run of the season over the right field fence, pushing junior Natalie Villarreal home with her.  In the bottom of the second sophomore Mel Dumezich popped a single into the left side and took two bases when Villarreal added a single down the right field line with two outs. Both were left stranded in the inning.  A&M sent three base runners home in the next inning. Kliesing drew a walk to start the half-inning. Sophomore Lauren Schwirtlich, pinch running for Kliesing, was sent home in the next at-bat by classmate Meagan May’s long double to right center.  Freshman Kaydee Rayburn entered at second to run for May and reached the plate on another double, hit by freshman Amber Garza. Garza stole home on a passed ball and brought the score to 5-0.  Dumezich bunted and outran the throw for a single. She got as far as second base but was left on base at the end of the third.Freshman Cassie Tysarczyk hit her third long ball of the season in the bottom of the fifth to put A&M ahead by another run. The home run popped up to left-center and bounced off the top of the wall.
