Wow!  Thanks for the update.  I was not aware of the suspension and I don't recall seeing that before.  Must of been a head shot (intentionally) and how do you judge that?  I guess that means that Georgia gets to tee off on Gammel again today.

Edit:  I looked at the box scores for Ole Miss.  Rogers started all three games.  She was not ejected from the games by the umpires (all of our outings had complete innings, not partial innings) so this must of been something that Walton did.  

Maybe it was due to this info in the box score.  Barnhill hit Gammel who was playing RF at the time. This was in the top of the 6th inning.  In the bottom of the 6th with no outs (which is why a partial inning did not show in the box) Rogers hit Barnhill.  She was then taken out of the game and replaced with Gammel.  I guess she was protecting her fellow pitcher.

Congrats to KD. On Kelsi Dunne day, she breaks Shelley Laird's career strikeouts to move into second place all-time at Alabama. Great offensive performances today and glad to see Iamurri, Davis and others get into the game. Majorly happy for Dawson with her double. Hopefully she continues to get those hits and hopefully she's on the upswing.

Does anyone know the extent of Conley's injury, and for how long she could possibly be out?

Oh yea like missing an extra day or two during road weekends is good for the STUDENT-athlete. Teams now must leave on Thursday's instead of Fridays for road games. You might get one day of practice a week if lucky because many teams take Monday's off; practice Tuesday; play mid -week Wednesday; travel Thursday, play Fri, Sat, Sun,; get home early Monday only to do it all over again. And there is little or no recovery time. Mental or physical. I have talked to about 8 players from 5 different teams and most say the new format is more stressful overall. There's more boredom, and a LOT of togetherness. (that can be good and bad). The home teams like the game a day and the road teams like the old way. (Imagine that. LOL)

From a traveling parent perspective I don't like it because it eats up more vacation or I miss games. I will see 4 less games this year over previous years.

As far as being "like baseball"..... it's not the same sport!!!! We can often play two games in the time it takes to play 1 baseball game so the "time at the park" concern is a bogus one. IMHO, it's all about revenue for the haves (those programs with strong gate) and it makes it easier for the coaches. Period. And Pat... when was the last time a Bama team had a film session inter-game? Come On!!!

JMHO,
Vic

BTW, I really enjoy watching Bama play but your webcast is one of the worst in the SEC. I can't believe people pay for that. No audio, fair to poor camera work. Come on guys. I know Murph believes asking people pay good gate for a good product is right ( I agree) so let's take care of the online as well. With what you make on gate you should have an almost pro online product.

Other than the 2 SEC doubleheaders, nobody is making the teams play midweek games during the conference schedule.  Alabama only scheduled two midweek nonconference games after SEC play started, and those are games that fit well within the schedule.

Stephen,
Yet another example of good coaching. Just like the classy move to let Dunne hit. A lot of coaches wouldn't have thought of that in a run away game. I wonder if it was Murphs idea or if one of the assistants mentioned it. either way I liked the move.

JMHO,
Vic

Story that I heard is CPM pitched to her in batting practice at Tennessee I believe and told her if she hit a home run he would let her hit in a game.  She did.  He did.

Tide pounds Arkansas; series finale is today

T.G. Paschal | Tuscaloosa News
Junior center fielder Jennifer Fenton throws the ball back to second base in the top of the third inning Saturday against Arkansas. The Crimson Tide won, 12-3.

TUSCALOOSA | The top-ranked University of Alabama softball team worked the count Saturday, and made short work of the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Alabama (32-2, 8-1 in Southeastern Conference play) had some timely two-strike hitting in powering its way to a 12-3 mercy-rule victory over the Lady Razorbacks (10-23, 1-11 SEC) in front of a crowd of 2,452 at Rhoads Softball Stadium.

Half of Alabama’s runs came on hits with two strikes after fouling off two or more balls. It’s part of the Crimson Tide’s method.

“If they’re 0-2 (in the count), we ask them to see at least three or four more pitches,” Alabama coach Patrick Murphy said. “Don’t get out on three pitches.”

Alabama scored five runs in the bottom of the first inning, all with two strikes. First baseman Amanda Locke hit a two-RBI single up the middle after fouling off a pair of two-strike pitches. Right fielder Cassie Reilly-Boccia followed soon after with a three-run home run to right field after fouling off two pitches with two strikes.

“I think the team definitely has a two-strike approach,” Locke said. “Murphy talks about battling. You keep fighting until you get a hit.”

Reilly-Boccia said it starts in practice.

“I think that’s a testament to the coaching staff we have,” she said. “They always preach pitch selection.

“Coach Murphy puts us in a lot of practice situations with two strikes where we see a lot of pitches that are right on the edge of the strike zone. If they’re way off you let it go by and if they’re close you foul it off.”

Arkansas answered in the top of the second with a three-run homer from outfielder Becca Carden to narrow the score to 5-3.

From looking at the radar it should be cleared out by gametime.

Kelsi looked good today, and it is good to see Locke coming around.  I know that Arkansas is down this year, but the homerun she hit today, while not hit to rf it was towards that way, she took the pitch where it needed to go and hit it on a line.

The Alabama fans are really taking attendance to another level this year, 3 game weekend series notwithstanding.  Last year's average home attendance was 2,260.  This year, the smallest crowd has been the mere 2,482 for opening night against Louisville, and the 3,000 mark has been broken on 3 different dates.

Tide softball makes quick work of Arkansas

T.G. Paschal | Tuscaloosa News
Kayla Braud (1) is congratulated by teammates Amanda Locke (22) and Keima Davis (3) after she scored from first base in the bottom of the thrid inning of the Tide’s 9-0 victory over Arkansas on Sunday at Rhoads Softball Stadium.

TUSCALOOSA | Patrick Murphy gave a couple of his regular starters some rest with a day off Sunday. The No. 1 University of Alabama softball team gave itself a little more rest with a 9-0 mercy-rule victory over Arkansas.

Alabama (32-2, 8-1 in Southeastern Conference) ended a stretch of 10 league games in 12 days with its third straight run-rule victory over the Lady Razorbacks to complete a three-game weekend sweep. After a slow start, the Crimson Tide plated five runs in the third inning and four more in the fourth to invoke the mercy rule and end things after Arkansas batted in the fifth.

“It can get a little long,” said Murphy, Alabama’s head coach, of the stretch of so many games in so few days. “You just hope they stay in it mentally.”

Alabama looked a little out of it early, with just one hit in the first two innings. Some small ball got things kick-started in the third.

A walk by second baseman Ryan Iamurri, making just her eighth start, led off the inning. Outfielder Keima Davis, making her 10th start, followed with a bunt single, and regular leadoff batter Kayla Braud bunted her way to first to load up the bases.

“Putting runners on puts pressure on the defense and the pitcher,” shortstop Whitney Larsen said.

Said Braud, “It’s always fun to get to do that, and to see Keima come through with the bunt like that was great. It felt good to come through with the small ball.”

That set the plate for the meat of the lineup. Larsen came through with a one-out, two-run single through the left side of the infield to drive in two runs, and Braud scored on a fielding error on the play to put Alabama up 3-0.

“I just wanted to punch it through the infield and get some runners in,” Larsen said.

i beg to differ. i think they are a good team. key word in there-> "team" but i also think that there are definite areas they can improve. but at this place in the season, not a bad "state of the team" address.

not knocking the girls or anything, but this is not the time when you need to be playing the best........all a part of the process, and i think this team, more than others i've seen in the past, UNDERSTANDS that.....

props to the girls and coaches for enduring a tough string of games. to drop one game against a good UT team shows a lot of MENTAL focus. 

ROLL TIDE!

That loss to UT says otherwise.  UT is a good enough team but Bama has some issues.

I am a little concerned about the injury bug.  We are deep enough to overcome losing a couple of players for short amts of time, but it seems like there has been more of our players walking around in boots and slings this year.

Is Iamurri being used as a slapper at all? I thought I had read that she was a slapper on her club and HS teams. At least the games that I've watched, I haven't seen it.
