While LSU and Georgia will definitely have influence on which team emerges from the SEC, Florida and Alabama stamped their passports as top-level entrants with a game which featured high-calibre pitching and power hitting across 7 innings which saw three lead changes and two ties. Stephanie Brombacher started for the Gators, Kelsi Dunne for the Tide. Florida drew blood top 1st when Enea jacked a two-out homer. Dunne struck out the other three batters. Bama racked four in the bottom; Braud doubled, Morgan walked on four pitches; both advanced on yet another illegal pitch called on Brombacher (five in Saturday’s first game); with two out, the first Bama run scored on a Brombacher error, then Lunceford crushed the first pitch for a 3-run HR. Florida tied top 2nd; with bases loaded, two out, Paculba walked rbi; Bruder reached on an error by Lunceford in left, two runs scoring. Florida took a 8-4 lead in the 3rd; based loaded, one out, Brooks (the 8th hitter) slugged a 1-2 pitch for a grand slam just inside the left field foul pole. Charlotte Morgan relieved Dunne. Bama got one back in the bottom, Boccia doubled, Morgan again walked on four pitches; Blewitt singled, Boccia scoring, but Blewitt was out on a nifty 8-2-6 play, 8-5. Florida added a run in the 4th, Enea scoring on DeFelice’s single. Bama’s Locke and Dawson singled, but, Fenton hit into a fielder’s choice, 5-1-5; when Braud singled up the middle, Dawson was out at home, 8-2, the second run-saving throw by Michelle Moultrie. Bama tied the game in a four-run burst in the 6th. Lunceford led with a double, scoring on Locke’s double, Davis in to run. When Sewell walked, both runners advanced on an illegal pitch. Gammel relieved Brombacher and immediately gave up a 3-run HR to Braud. Top 7th: with Locke now pitching for Bama, Brooks and Holle greeted her with back-to-back home runs. In the bottom, Larsen fanned but Blewitt singled; Dozier in to run. Lunceford reached on a fielder’s choice, Dozier safe on an error at short. Locke hit into a game-ending double-play, 6-4-3.
