WCWS: No. 3 Alabama Silences No. 11 ArizonaFeatured
Game 3: No. 3 Alabama 5, No. 11 Arizona 1
How it happened: There is no good answer for confronting the Bailey Hemphill conundrum.
Arizona opted to pitch around (or at least very carefully to) the SEC Player of the Year in the bottom of the first inning, and the ensuing walk led to the opening run. Hemphill scored from second base on Jenna Johnson’s single after Janelle Meoño bobbled the ball in left field (Kaylee Tow’s walk at the end of an 11-pitch battle with Hanah Bowen helped the rally).
