No. 23 Auburn softball snapped their seven-game SEC losing streak Wednesday night in Montgomery's Lagoon Park with a 6-2 win over No. 6 Alabama.
Kasey Cooper gave Auburn the quick lead with a two-run homer in the first inning.
The score remained 2-0 until Morgan Estell hit a three-run home run to make it 5-0.
In the following inning Jenna Abbott hit another Auburn homer but the umpires later ruled it was a double. But Abbott then scored later in the fourth to make the game 6-1.
Auburn loaded up the bases in the fifth but could not score another run.
Alabama responded in the bottom of the fifth with their second run, but the score stayed 6-2 for Auburn to clinch the victory.
The Tigers now improve to 32-12-1 on the season before this weekend’s series at Athens against Georgia.
