UPDATE: SOFTBALL SEASON ENDS TOO
Arizona State defeated the Crimson Tide 3-1 Sunday at the Womenâ€™s College World Series. Alabama ended the season with a record of 58-8. Alabama also posted the best showing ever at the WCWS with a 2-2 record.
Alabama was bounced from the NCAA baseball tournament Sunday losing 16-1 to East Carolina. The loss dropped the Tide to 35-28 on the season. The 16-1 loss was the worst ever for the Tide in NCAA tournament play.
The Sunday loss and Saturday evening loss were in large part due to pitching woes.
â€œThis game was like the second half of last nightâ€™s game, where we struggled on the mound,â€ Alabama head coach Jim Wells said.Â â€œIt all starts with pitching and we did not do that very well the last two days.â€
