LSU 3, Mississippi State 1.  Allison Falcon ripped a two-run double during the third inning to break a 1-1 tie, while Brittany Mack racked up 10 strikeouts in a complete game effort as the LSU softball team claimed a 3-1 win over Mississippi State Saturday in-front of a season-best 1,397 fans at Tiger Park.  LSU (18-8, 3-1 SEC) pushed its winning streak to 19 straight games over Mississippi State (17-11, 3-6 SEC) dating back to the 2005 season. Prior to first pitch, the Tigers honored 18 Alumnae as part of Alumnae Weekend at the ballpark. Mack won her fifth consecutive decision to improve to 8-4 on the season. She maneuvered around eight hits, two walks and stranded six of 10 Bulldog baserunners in scoring position. The senior right-hander also notched her third double-digit strikeout performance of the season. Stephanie Becker was handed the loss and tagged for three runs on five hits. She came away with six strikeouts against one walk, but dropped to 9-4 for the season.

Hokies, Tar Heels Split. Bailey Liddle twirled a five-hit shutout to help lead the Virginia Tech softball team to a split of a pair of games with North Carolina Saturday afternoon at Tech Softball Park. In the first game, the Tar Heels rallied from two runs to beat Tech 3-2 in nine innings before the Hokies broke through with a 5-0 win in the second game.

In the second contest, Tech got a run in the first inning when Courtney Liddle doubled home Lauren Gaskill and added to the lead in the second inning when Gaskill scored on a groundout by Dani Anderson. Gaskill finally got into the action at the plate in the fourth inning when she cleared the bases with a three-run double to the gap to make it 5-0.

Bailey Liddle (W, 6-3) was outstanding, limiting the Tar Heels to just five hits in picking up the shutout. She walked two and struck out two. At the plate, Gaskill led the way with two hits, two runs scored and thraee RBIs. Courtney Liddle, Betty Rose and Kat Banks each had one. The big news of the day was that the staff pulled the redshirt off freshman Katey Smith. The move paid off as she picked up a hit and scored a run, starting in the designated player spot.

Arkansas Upsets Tennessee.  A four-run first inning outburst proved enough for Arkansas (18-8, 2-5 Southeastern Conference) on a St. Patrick’s Day Saturday afternoon at Bogle Park in Fayetteville, Ark., as the Razorbacks evened their three-game series against the #9 Tennessee Lady Vol softball team (18-6, 2-3 SEC) with a 4-1 victory.  UT junior pitcher Ivy Renfroe (5-5) suffered the loss in the circle, allowing four tallies on five hits with a pair of walks and four strikeouts over 4.0 frames of effort. Sophomore shortstop Madison Shipman led the Tennessee offense by going 2-for-3 at the plate with her team-leading seventh double of the season and squad-high 26th RBI. The Razorbacks answered  in the bottom half of the opening frame as left fielder Devon Wallace blasted a solo HR to center, tying the count on the scoreboard at 1-1. Third baseman Chloe Oprzedek was struck by a pitch and quickly stole second before being joined on the bags via walk by shortstop Clarisa Navarro. Following a sacrifice bunt that moved the runners into scoring position, Amanda Geile drove a three-run shot over the wall in right center as UA improved its advantage to 4-1.

Florida Edges South Carolina 1-0.  A tight contest went to No. 4 Florida (25-2, 6-1 SEC), as the Gators hung on to defeat South Carolina (19-11, 2-5 SEC) 1-0 on Saturday afternoon in front of 1,080 fans at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. The Gators put up their lone run in the third when designated player Bailey Castro stepped up with two outs and poked a single to left just inside the foul line, scoring Sami Fagan from second after she started the frame by drawing a walk. South Carolina, who out-hit Florida 5-3, had chances in the later stages of the game. In the sixth, Samie Garcia drew a leadoff walk, and Lauren Lackey followed with a base hit, extending her hitting streak to a career-best 13 games, to give the Gamecocks life.  The Gators went to the pen, bringing in ace Hannah Rogers. Kaitlin Westfall sacrificed the runners into scoring position, putting two runners into scoring position for the Garnet and Black’s cleanup hitter. But the Gators got the runner at third in a rundown when the squeeze bunt was not put down, nabbing Garcia for the second out on a close play at third. Rogers finished off the hitter to end the frame. The Gamecocks got the leadoff runner on in the seventh when  Chelsea Hawkins blooped a single to center that glanced off the glove of the Gator second basemaJackie Slawson moved to second on a grounder to first, but Rogers got an infield pop fly and a grounder to second to end the threat and contest. Earlier, Florida threatened in the second, loading the bases with two down on three walks in the frame. But Gamecock starter Audrey Broyles (5-3) got out of the frame with a fly to left. Gator freshman Lauren Haeger (8-1) picked up the win, tossing five innings of four-hit ball, fanning four. Rogers picked up her second save of the year, giving up a hit and striking out one in two innings. Broyles was charged with the loss, going the distance while allowing one earned run on five walks and three hits.

South Florida 5, Northern Illinois 1.  Jessica Mouse’s first home run for the University of South Florida softball team was all the offense USF needed Saturday. The senior third baseman golfed a 1-1 pitch over the left-field wall for a two-run home run – the first of four homers in the game for USF – and sophomore pitcher Sara Nevins extended her streak of innings without allowing an earned run to 51. 2 as the Bulls (22-5 overall) secured the 5-1 win over Northern Illinois Saturday at the Eddie C. Moore Softball Complex in Clearwater, Fla. Mouse’s blast was the only offense through five innings, as Nevins dueled with the Huskies’ Jessica Sturm to a 2-1 lead through five and a half innings. Northern Illinois’ only run coming as a USF error extended the inning in the sixth, allowing the Huskies to score on a bases-loaded hit batter.  USF responded in the bottom of the sixth, pounding back-to-back-to-back blasts to lead off the inning, as Stephanie Medina, Kenshyra Jackson and Kourtney Salvarola all cleared the fence, giving Nevins a cushion to finish the game;  Nevins did so in grand fashion, striking out one and forcing two pop-ups for her 12th win of the season. Nevins struck out 11, allowing just four hits over seven innings of work.  The Bulls finished with seven hits, four of them blasts. It was Medina’s third, Jackson’s second and Salvarola’s first of the year. Salvarola and senior outfielder Janine Richardson each had two hits.

Bama 10, Ole Miss 7.  WP Locke; LP Bruning; S Sewell.  The Tide led 9 to 2 after 4.  Bama had scored 5 in the 2nd, including a 3-run bomb by Locke.  Ole Miss got back in the game with a 5-run 5th, Overbeck had a 3-run homer, Brown a 2-run homer.  Locke had 4 rbi; Fenton, who was 3-3, with 2 rbi and a homer.
