Tide Softball Sets World Series Record

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Charlotte Morgan homered and drove in three
runs in Alabama's 14-0 victory over Arizona, the most lopsided game
in Women's College World Series history.

Saturday's game was stopped after five innings because of the
mercy rule.

The Crimson Tide (53-10) scored eight runs in the second inning and set the record for the most runs scored in a World Series game. Arizona held the previous record with a 12-0 win against Fresno
State in 1989.

The Wildcats (46-17) used all three of their top pitchers in a failed effort to slow the Tide, but wound up with the largest margin of defeat in the history of a powerhouse program that has won eight national championships.

Arizona's largest previous blowout was a 15-3 loss to Cal State-Fullerton in 2003.
