Alabama’s Bailey Hemphill ‘touches’ home SEC Network

The Tide lost two one-run games and the series, 2-1, at Ole Miss.

Next, Alabama will advance to play fourth-seeded Texas A&M (42-9) on Thursday, May 11 at 11 a.m. CT on SEC Network. Later with two runners in scoring position and two out, back-to-back singles by Reagan Dykes and Sydney Booker tacked on another pair of runs, making it 3-0 before a runner was caught in a rundown to end the bottom of the first. After two more scoreless innings, Hemphill blasted a two-strike pitch over the fence in center field to give the Tide a 2-1 lead, which ultimately proved final.

Alabama softball made national news last week when one of its players hit a home run but was not given a run after she failed to touch home plate following her trot. Alexis Osorio pitched two shutout innings to earn the save. The two teams met in the 2013 SEC Tournament in Lexington, Ky., in which Alabama won 10-9. Texas A&M would get another runner on base in the inning but could not push her across, as the teams headed to extra innings now tied at 1-1. Vidales belted four home runs, three in Sunday's game, drove in eight and set a career high with six RBI in the rubber match. She struck out 15 while the Tori Vidales home run was the only hit allowed until the bottom of the 10th.

Brown led off the bottom of the first with an infield single, stole second and then advanced to third on a groundout. The Tide's first run came off the bat of Marisa Runyon, an RBI single in the top of the third, and Hemphill's solo home run marked the second long ball of the week for the Tide freshman.

The Crimson Tide regained the lead in the 10th as Bailey Hemphill hit a homer to center. Alabama's team ERA of 1.57 ranks second behind No. 1 Florida (0.75), the top seed for the tournament at Sherri Parker Lee Stadium.
