Leaving West Coast paid off for Alexis Osorio

Alexis Osorio never intended on leaving the west coast. The furthest she was willing to go was one state away, to attend college and play softball. Alabama looked to be completely out of the picture itself as a destination, as her lone trip to the state had been a disaster.  Her softball team had made it to the nationals in her first visit to the state in Auburn.

Baseball holds on to defeat Troy

An early spark was all Alabama needed to take care of Troy on Tuesday. The Crimson Tide plated four in the first inning, before defeating the Trojans 4-3. The win moves Alabama’s record to 23-20 on the season. Alabama came out fast. Cobie Vance started the bottom of the first with a double to left-center field, followed by a Joe Breaux walk. Chandler Avant saw just one pitch before he lined a fastball over the left field fence, for his third home run of the season.
