While weekend softball action is about to begin, it’s time to check out what happened earlier this week. Here’s the rundown of how the SEC fared in midweek softball games.


ALABAMA

How They Fared: (1-0)

The Tide won their only game of the week, as they dispatched the UAB Blazers 4-0 in Birmingham. Courtney Gettins threw five shutout innings, as she allowed only four hits and had one strikeout. The great Alexis Osorio came in to close things down for the final two innings. Osorio struck out six of the seven batters she faced, as her dominance is still trickling into 2018. Peyton Grantham collected a double while Kaylee Tow hit her third home run of the season.

ARKANSAS

How They Fared: (1-0)

Arkansas had only one game this week, and they made the most of it. The Razorbacks defeated the Missouri State Bears 9-0 in a game that lasted just five innings. The Hogs had four players who hit home runs in the game. That included a grand slam off the bat of Hannah Mcewen. Loren Krzysko, Tori Cooper and Haydi Bugarin also went deep in this rout. Mary Haff was the pitcher of record, and she shut down the Bears in this Wednesday contest. Haff struck out seven of the 16 batters she faced, allowed just one hit and walked none.

AUBURN

No games played.

FLORIDA

How They Fared: (2-0)

The Florida Gators promptly swept their doubleheader against Loyola Marymount and Cal State Fullerton. The Gators, participating in the Judi Garman Classic, took down their opponents out west by the combined score of 23-0. Both games were run-ruled, as the Gators defeated LMU 13-0 and Cal State Fullerton 10-0. Nicole DeWitt had two homers, one in each game, while Amanda Lorenz had two alone in the win against Loyola Marymount. Jordan Matthews, meanwhile, homered in the game against the Lions and Jordan Roberts, on the other hand, hit a blast against the Titans. Aleshia Ocasio and Kelly Barnhill each picked up wins in their respective outings, naturally. Barnhill had eight strikeouts and Ocasio had seven.

GEORGIA

No games played.

KENTUCKY

How They Fared: (1-0)

Autumn Humes allowed no earned runs in 5.2 innings pitched as Kentucky defeated the Dayton Flyers 4-1 in their lone midweek game. The Wildcats were boosted by Humes, who put up five strikeouts and allowed one walk and three hits to the 21 batters she faced. Offensively, they were aided by the bat of Abbey Cheek. Cheek hit two triples and drove in two runs in the victory. Brooklin Hinz and Jenny Schaper picked up the other two runs in the game, meanwhile.

TEXAS A&M

How They Fared: (2-0)

The Texas A&M Aggies swept their doubleheader against Sam Houston on Wednesday. The Aggies run-ruled the Bearkats 9-1 in the first meeting and shut them down 3-0 in the second. Tori Vidales and Riley Sartain were the primary sources of offense in the first game. Vidales and Sartain drove in six of the nine runs scored — three apiece, with Vidales going 2-3 in the contest. Sarah Hudek, Payton McBride and Kristen Cuyos, meanwhile, picked up the other three — one apiece. In the second game, Hudek drove in two of the three runs and was 3-3 at the plate. Cuyos, meanwhile, picked up the other run, as each of the two picked up doubles in the victory, too.

Samantha Show dominated on the mound in the second half of the doubleheader. Show pitched a complete game, three-hit shutout and struck out six batters with zero walks allowed. Trinity Harrington was exceptional in the first game, too. She pitched all five innings of the game, allowed just three hits — like Show — but allowed a run courtesy of Sheridan Fisher. That being said, she didn’t allow much else beyond that. Harrington also struck out two batters and allowed zero walks.
