Only saw about half of it but Bama won 5-2. Torrence started and got the win, Fouts closed it out and recorded her 1,000 career K while doing so. Jenna Johnson made a nice HR robbing catch that I’ll link below. Bama opens SEC play at home against Arkansas starting Saturday.

FLORENCE, Ala. – Alabama softball overcame an early deficit to defeat North Alabama, 5-2, Tuesday night on the road as Montana Fouts became the fifth player in program history to earn 1,000 career strikeouts.

Alabama (21-6) trailed in the second inning after a North Alabama (17-3) RBI single put the home team up 1-0 early. The Crimson Tide knotted it up in the fourth on an RBI single from Bailey Dowling before a two-run double from Emma Broadfoot put Alabama in the lead. The Tide tacked on two more before the frame ended to make it a 5-1 game at the halfway mark. The Lions got a run back in the bottom of the sixth on an RBI single and put the first two batters on in the seventh, bringing the potential tying run to the plate.
