Tennessee Softball Run-Rules South Carolina, 11-0

Monday, April 19, 2021
 No. 16 Tennessee softball bounced back in a big way Sunday night, run-ruling South Carolina, 11-0, at the Carolina Softball Stadium.
 
The Lady Vols (32-7, 5-6 SEC) broke out the bats as they racked up 13 hits on the night. Five players picked up a pair of hits in the win, led by Cailin Hannon who went 2-for-5 with a team-leading four RBIs.
It is the second four-RBI game for Hannon this season.

 
In the circle, Callie Turner twirled a gem, no-hitting South Carolina through five and allowing just one hit all night. With the victory, Turner improves to 8-1 on the year and picks up the first conference win of her career.
 
UT broke open the game in the second inning, scoring four runs on four hits. Ivy Davis got things started with a leadoff double in the right centerfield gap, before advancing to third on a wild pitch. Ally Shipman made her return to the UT lineup Sunday and drove Davis home on a double down the left field line for the game's first run.
 
After a ground out, Kaitlin Parsons drew a walk and Anna Fox singled to load the bases for Cailin Hannon. Hannon smoked a bases-clearing double to left center, giving UT a 4-0 advantage.
 
Tennessee added to the lead in the fourth on a RBI sac fly from Ashley Morgan that scored Kiki Milloy. In the fifth, it was Milloy driving in a run as she laced a single to right that plated Parsons to push the UT lead to 6-0.
 
The Lady Vols put the game away in the sixth, scoring five runs on five hits to create the run-rule 11-0 win.
 
Along with Hannon's big night at the plate, Shipman went 2-for-4 with three RBIs, two runs scored and a stolen base in her first game since April 4 against Kentucky.
 
Parsons scored three runs in the victory as she went 1-for-1 with three walks and a RBI.
 
For South Carolina (23-16, 2-12 SEC), Cayla Drotar suffered the loss as she tossed just 1.1 innings and allowed four runs on four hits. She falls to 3-5 on the year.
 
Tennessee and South Carolina play a rubber match game Monday night beginning at 7 p.m. ET on SEC Network.

Please Stop Calling Us “Latinx”

We’re asking nicely, because we think the use of the term has been mostly well-intentioned. But let’s start with some numbers: a mere 3 percent of Americans of Latin-American descent use “Latinx” to describe themselves. This is based on a 2020 Pew Research poll of about 3,000 American Latinos. Those who want for “Latinx” to become the default say it’s preferable because it’s ... (click for more)
