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.
