The University of Alabama made it look easy Sunday in their second game against the Jaguars of South Alabama.
Alabama, the No. 2 national seed in the NCAA Softball Tournament, closed with an exclamation point, scoring three runs in its last at-bat and striking out South Alabama’s last three hitters for a 6-0 victory in front of almost 2,100 fans at Rhoads Stadium.
Alabama (53-7) will host Michigan (42-15), the winner of the Louisville (Ky.) Regional, in a best-of-three Super Regional next week, with dates and times to be determined.
The winner of the Super Regional advances to the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City.
UA scored one run in each of the first three innings, and ace Jackie Traina seemed to have the Jaguars (41-17) number as she improved to 35-2 on the season. Traina has recorded 301 strikeouts on the season.
