UAB and Tulsa's series finale on Sunday was called off due to inclement weather.
April 6, 2014
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Sunday’s UAB softball series finale against No. 17 Tulsa was called off in the fifth inning due to inclement weather and travel arrangements.
The two teams agreed to a 3:30 p.m. drop-dead time prior to the start of the rubber match due to Tulsa’s air travel, and following a steady rain in the bottom of the fifth inning, the game was called and will result in a no game.
UAB took an early 1-0 lead in the first on a deep home run from Kristen McGrath, a score that would stand up until the fifth inning. With rain in the area, Tulsa scored seven runs on eight hits in the top half to take a 7-1 lead. The inclement weather came into play in UAB's half of the fifth after Tulsa's Aimee Creger walked the first two Blazer hitters. Following the two walks, the coaches and umpires met, the tarp was pulled and the final decision was made to end the contest.
No stats from the contest will be counted, as the series will end 1-1.
The Blazers will be back in action on Wednesday in Tuscaloosa with a 6 p.m. contest against No. 4 Alabama.
