With conference play in full swing, and since we’re in the first day of April, we can probably expect more days like this where games are televised to a broader audience. All but one of these games will be aired on an ESPN network, with four being available automatically and two of which being on networks that are available to a very broad audience in ESPN and ESPNU.

Friday night’s action didn’t bring too many surprises but the Missouri Tigers were able to take the first of three against the ninth-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. Mizzou shut the Tide out 2-0, pulling off the rarest of feats in getting to dominant pitcher Alexis Osorio. She did strike out 10 Tiger batters, but they were able to plate home two runs, draw four walks and collect four hits in the outing as well including a homer by Cayla Kessinger. Cheyenne Baxter was credited with the victory after seven shutout innings with five strikeouts, six hits allowed and two walks issued.

Elsewhere, Ole Miss upset 16th-ranked Kentucky in the first of three by the score of 7-1. The Rebels jumped all over UK, scoring three runs in the third and then four runs in the fifth. Sarah Van Schaik was credited with not one but two homers on the night and collected five RBI in the victory as well. Kaitlin Lee went the distance, earning a complete game with four strikeouts, five hits and just one earned run allowed.

Lastly, LSU, Florida, Auburn and Tennessee all earned victories, gaining wins over Mississippi State, Arkansas, Georgia and North Carolina State respectively. Auburn had to rally to defeat the ‘Dawgs, scoring three runs to break what was a 4-4 tie in the sixth inning. The Bayou Bengals started out hot, opening a 3-0 lead in the first and never trailed in the contest. The Gators fell behind 1-0 in the third but responded with a six-run inning in the fourth. And finally, the Volunteers won 8-3, leading 4-0 and 7-2 at one point in the contest.
