Tennessee softball catcher Kelcy Leach slugged home five RBI Sunday afternoon. Four of those five came on the last play of the game.
With the bases loaded and Texas A&M in command of the score, 8-7, Leach mashed a 1-1 pitch down the middle over the fence in left-center field to walk it off for Tennessee, ensuring an 11-8 victory.

The grand slam capped off a great comeback for the Lady Volunteers.
The Lady Vols allowed four runs in the top of the sixth, giving Texas A&M the 8-4 lead. Tennessee responded with three runs in the bottom half of the same inning to cut the Aggies' lead to 8-7.

It's the second-straight game in which Tennessee has won on a walk-off home run. Saturday saw Zaida Puni as the hero, hitting a two-run home run in the bottom of the seventh to give the Lady Vols the 7-5 win.
