Alabama Softball advances to Super Regionals with 1-0 win over Middle Tennessee State
After losing game one of the Regional Finals to Middle Tennessee State, the Crimson Tide found themselves in a win-or-go-home game against the Blue Raiders. The offense struggled to accumulate run support, but one run was enough for the Crimson Tide.
Alabama defeated Middle Tennessee State by a final score of 1-0. Meaning the Crimson Tide will advance to the Super Regionals to take on the No. 12 overall seed Northwestern Wildcats.
Graduate senior Ally Shipman came through in the seventh inning with a go-ahead home run to left field.
Junior Jaala Torrence shined on the mound and was able to put the Blue Raiders away in the bottom half of the seventh inning.
Altogether, Torrence threw seven scoreless innings while allowing just five hits and striking out eight batters.
Alabama head coach Patrick Murphy will be coaching in his sixth Super Regional next weekend. The Tide are hopeful that star pitcher Montana Fouts will be back in the circle after suffering a knee injury in the SEC Tournament.
