WOW!!! Barnhill our of game in 1st inning. 2 outs Bama up 6-0 on Gators. RTR.
Let's run rule 'em!

As I’ve said many, many times Mowins and her sidekicks are very biased in their coverage of softball games. The Florida - Alabama game will be about Kelly Barnhill. However, they won’t mention that 95% of her pitches are illegal.
Well, I thought we were in luck not to get Mowins, but damn! This crew loves Florida!

What's the deal with the "U" symbol they make after hits/homeruns?

Class move by Tim Walton to let Barnhill come finish the game (provided UF doesn't score four runs in the 5th).

Can’t believe they’re making excuses for Florida losing. Just admit it. Bama is kicking their ASS.

These commentators are terrible. But then again, what do you say during a blowout?

I think Adam Amin forgot the difference between objectivity and subjectivity.

OKLAHOMA CITY – An explosive offense propelled Alabama softball to a record-setting performance in the 15-3 win over Florida Saturday evening to advance in the Women's College World Series.

A six-run first inning set the tone for Alabama (58-9) in a dominant victory over Florida (49-18), needing just five innings to defeat the Gators. The 12-run margin of victory is the third-largest in Women's College World Series history, the largest since Arizona defeated Fresno State, 12-0, in 1989. It is the Crimson Tide's second run-rule victory at the WCWS, previously defeating Arizona, 14-0, in 2009. The 15 runs scored is the most by Alabama over Florida in program history.

Junior Bailey Hemphill was 2-for-3 at the plate, including a three-run home run in the fourth inning. The Lafayette, La., native is now Alabama's single season record-holder in home runs (26) and RBIs (82), with her 26 home runs tying Mississippi State's Mia Davidson for the SEC single-season record, set earlier this season.

Sophomore Kaylee Tow, hitting behind Hemphill, was 2-for-3 with four RBIs, three of which came on a first-inning home run that got the scoring started for the Tide. Sophomore KB Sides was 3-for-3 at the top of the order, while senior Reagan Dykes and junior Elissa Brown also posted multi-hit performances. Alabama's third home run of the day came off the bat of senior Merris Schroder, a three-run shot in the first inning.

Sides led off the bottom of the third with a double to the wall in left and advanced to third on a wild pitch in the next at-bat. Hemphill was intentionally walked to put runners at the corners and Tow blasted a three-run home run to right field to give the Tide an early 3-0 lead. Schroder doubled the lead five batters later with another three-run home run, forcing a pitching change for Florida with Alabama now leading 6-0. A groundout ended the inning with the Tide holding the six-run advantage.

With two in scoring position and two out in the bottom of the third, a wild pitch moved both runners up 60 feet to increase the lead to 7-0. An RBI single from Sides stretched it to 8-0 and a throwing error following a single in the next at-bat allowed Sides to score and make it 9-0. A standup double from Tow pushed the lead to double digits as the Gators made another pitching change, with a groundout finally stopping the two-out rally with the score at 10-0.

Freshman Skylar Wallace reached on an error to lead off the bottom of the fourth and Dykes brought her home with a double down the right-field line, advancing to third on an error with the score 11-0. A two-out RBI single from Brown stretched it to 12-0 before Hemphill crushed a three-run home run to further swell the lead to 15-0.

Down to its final three outs in the top of the fifth, Florida did not go down quietly. A pair of home runs erased the shutout and put three runs on the board, but it was too little, too late as Alabama ultimately came away victorious by a score of 15-3.

Alabama will return to play a second game today, playing Arizona (48-13) tonight on ESPN following the conclusion of Oklahoma State vs. Washington.
