Let’s break down the big news of the day that happened on Saturday first here.

LSU couldn’t defeat Florida State, losing 9-1, and finally, Kentucky was cut down by Texas 4-3. LSU was able to score a 7-2 victory over Ohio State. Meanwhile, Kentucky avenged that defeat to Texas with a blowout win over Oregon, conquering the Ducks 12-3.
Scoring a big win on Saturday was the Alabama Crimson Tide. The 8th-ranked Tide defeated the 9th-ranked Arizona Wildcats 6-1. UofA committed four errors in the game an the Tide were able to take advantage in a big way. Montana Fouts pitched a complete game and fanned eight batters while walking none.
Alyssa DiCarlo helped lead Georgia to a massive 16-0 win over Omaha. DiCarlo belted her EIGHTH home run of the season, this after cracking two dingers in a blowout 11-0 win over Winthrop earlier in the day.
