LSU Softball headed for top 10 after sweep of Bama

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU completed a sweep of defending NCAA Champion Alabama at Tiger Park this afternoon, taking down the Tide 4-3 in front of another record crowd of 3,231. Rachele Fico pitched a complete game scattering eight hits, and No.11 LSU (40-11, 15-6 SEC) rallied from three one-run deficits to earn a third straight one-run victory over Pat Murphy's team. Freshmen Bianca Bell and Sandra Simmons both had game-tying hits to erase Alabama leads, and an error on Jaycee Blades' infield grounder plated the winning run. Blades also had an acrobatic catch for Beth Torina's team, which shattered an attendance mark Friday night with 2,631 fans and drew a series-record 7,799 for this weekend's three games. No.4 Alabama is now 40-10 and 12-9 in the SEC and has still never beaten the Tigers in their new park.
