No. 4 Alabama Shuts Out Southern Miss on Tuesday
Three unearned runs in the first inning provided No. 4 Alabama the cushion they needed to take down Southern Miss, 11-0, in five innings on Tuesday from Rhoads Field.


Southern Miss enters the midweek contest with a 22-24 overall record. The Golden Eagles won a three-game Conference USA series on the road against Louisiana Tech, 2-1, to improve to 10-11 in C-USA play.

Alabama comes to Hattiesburg with a 39-8 overall record, including a 15-3 mark in SEC play. The Crimson Tide enters the nonconference midweek tilt after claiming a pair of nonconference games over the weekend against Georgia Southern and North Carolina.

The Tide holds a slight 4-3 advantage in the all-time series between the two schools. The Black and Gold are 2-0 all-time against Alabama in Hattiesburg, but 0-4 against the Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Southern Miss claimed the first game of the series back in 2000 - a 3-0 victory in the Women's College World Series in Oklahoma City, Okla. for the only neutral site meeting between the two teams.

Last season, the Crimson Tide posted an 11-0 run-rule victory over the Golden Eagles in Tuscaloosa. Sarah Evans and Mackenzie Sher each recorded hits in the game, while pitcher Kaitlin Wilson notched a team-best three strikeouts in two relief innings.
