Alabama kept its winning streak alive after beating Cal State Fullerton and No. 9 Arizona on Saturday.

In game one, Alabama cruised to a 7-2 victory. KB Sides and Kaylee Tow led the offensive charge for the Crimson Tide. Sides went 2-for-4 with two RBIs and Tow went 2-for-3 with two doubles and three RBIs. Junior Sarah Cornell pitched a complete game allowing two earned runs on five hits with two strikeouts and four walks.

In game two Alabama faced the host, No. 9 Arizona. Freshman Skylar Wallace had a clutch game for Alabama. Her two RBI double gave the Crimson Tide the insurance runs it needed to defeat the Wildcats. Senior Caroline Hardy hit a pinch-hit home run to put the game out of reach in the seventh.

Montana Fouts was dominant again in the circle. She pitched a complete game with eight strikeouts, no walks and one unearned run on six hits.

Alabama will look to complete the sweep on Sunday against UIC.
