LIVINGSTON, Ala. Fresh off of a split with William Carey College, the University of West Alabama softball team returned to Gulf South Conference action on Tuesday, hosting the Mississippi University for Women with mixed results.
Behind 11 hits and a complete game three-hitter from Zayne Smith, the Lady Tigers took game one by the score of 7-1. In game two, it would be MUW maximizing their five hits to score seven runs and down UWA 7-2 in a game called in the sixth inning due to rain.
In the first game, pitcher Zayne Smith went the distance, allowing no runs on three hits while striking out six to move her record to 10-6.
Smith also led the West Alabama offensive charge with three hits, two runs scored and one RBI. Miranda Whaley added one hit and two RBI for the victorious Tigers while teammates Crystal Hodges and Fawn Murphree picked up one RBI apiece.
Dianna Bethea paced the Tiger charge in the second game with two hits and one run scored. Whaley continued her good day, picking up another hit and one RBI. Smith picked up her second RBI of the day on an RBI single.
The split moved UWA's record to 11-15 overall and 4-9 in GSC play. The Tigers return to action today when Faulkner University pays a visit to the UWA Softball Complex. The first game of the doubleheader is set to begin at 5 p.m.
