Ace pitcher, Montana Fouts, saw the circle for the last time ever in an Alabama uniform. She pitched only four strikeouts throughout the game while allowing five hits and a home run.

Stanford scored its first run in the top of the second inning when Emily Shultz rounded third base off of a double by Sydney Steele. Stanford pitcher NiJaree Canady stepped up for the Cardinal after replacing Alana Vawter in the bottom of the sixth inning. The freshman allowed no hits. Stanford added to its one-run lead in the top of the seventh inning when Shultz hit a home run. Alabama's only hit in the game was by Ashley Prange in the bottom of the third inning.

The Tide had a memorable postseason run with Jaala Torrence stepping up in the circle after Fouts' injury and the offense warming up the bats. Unfortunately, Alabama was unable to get anything done after losing in the first round of the WCWS to Tennessee 10-5 on Thursday.

Fouts, and Prange, alongside Ally Shipman and Faith Hensley end their college careers in Oklahoma City.
