Third-ranked Alabama torches FGCU

GULF SHORES, Ala. -- Alabama offense came alive in the opening game of day two at the Sand Dollar Classic, defeating Florida Gulf Coast 13-1.

Third-ranked Alabama (4-0) took home the dominating victory thanks in large part to a seven-run fourth inning, including a three-run homer by Danielle Richard, the first long ball for Alabama this season.

The top four in the Crimson Tide order each recorded a hit and scored at least one run, while Richard was a perfect 3-3 with four RBI and four runs scored. In the circle, freshman Alexis Osorio (3-0) got more offensive help than she needed as the freshman shut down the Eagles' lineup allowing just one run off three hits with eight strikeouts.

Florida Gulf Coast (1-2) starter Taylor Wade (0-1) took the loss, throwing 5.0 innings with 10 earned runs allowed.
