The Crimson Tide moves to 38-6 after a pair of midweek wins at home over North Alabama and Alcorn State. Alabama's freshmen accounted for seven of the team's 11 scored runs on Tuesday and continue to prove the program's future is in good hands.

After the sweep, Alabama coach Patrick Murphy was pleased with the opportunity to see what his full clubhouse can offer to a game.

"This late in the year, when you get to play everybody, and everybody gets at-bats, It's awesome because I'm going to need a lot of these people down the stretch. If I don't play them now, then I'll never know what they can do."

Game 1

The Tide took Game 1 against UNA, 6-1, with right-hander Jaala Torrence collecting her sixth win of the season. Torrence was relieved by fellow right-hander Lexi Kilfoyl after four innings only giving up a hit and two walks. Kilfoyl finished the appearance giving up three hits in three innings and the lone Lions run of the game.

Freshman infielder Megan Bloodworth sent her seventh home run of the year over the fence in Game 1 and now only trails Ally Shipman (8) and Bailey Dowling (8) for the clubhouse lead in homers.

Fellow freshman infielder Kali Heivilin earned her seventh start of the season and secured her first home run in an Alabama uniform on Tuesday. She went 1-for-3 against UNA and appeared in both games of the doubleheader.

Game 2

The second half of the day seemed much more frustrating for Alabama as the 4-0 victory was strung together with just three team hits. Two of Alabama's hits were recorded by freshmen Aubrey Barnhart and Jordan Stephens, who both also drew a pair of walks in the appearance.

Barnhart, starting at first base in both games, finished the day 3-for-5 with three hits, three runs and two walks.

Junior RHP Lexi Kilfoyl started Game 2 against Alcorn State just 30 minutes after shutting the door on UNA. She threw for five innings while giving up only one hit and totaling nine strikeouts before being relieved prior to the sixth Inning. Redshirt freshman Alex Salter closed out the last two innings of game two without allowing a hit and collecting three strikeouts across six batters.

The No. 2 ranked Alabama is 13-5 in conference play and will be on the road for its upcoming weekend series with Texas A&M. Game 1 is scheduled for Friday, April 22 at 6 p.m. CST and can be heard on 97.5 FM.
