Softball: Card rolls Tide

Alabama’s softball team earned the second seed in the NCAA Tournament on the back of an impressive 49-8 record, going 19-6 in the Southeastern Conference (SEC). It was a perfect 23-0 at home, including three easy victories last weekend in the NCAA Regional. All of that went out the window Thursday, when the 15th-seeded Stanford softball team stunned the Crimson Tide with a 5-2 victory in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
