Morgan Allen got the start for Troy in the loss. Allen struggled to find the strikezone during her time inside the pitching circle.

“Morgan Allen couldn’t find the strike zone,” Sellers said. “I think she threw 19 balls in a row. It just wasn’t her night tonight. We tried to let her fight through it.”

After allowing one run in the top of the first, Troy jumped out to a four-run lead in the bottom of the inning to take a 5-1 lead. With two runners on, Addison Armstrong picked up a two-run hit.

Andalusia went up 10-5 in the second inning and it was back and forth the rest of the way.

Jada Hall was a bright spot at the plate for Troy. She finished the game 5-5 with 3 RBI.

Beth Dixon, Alyssa Barron and Kristin Tompkins also got on the mound for Troy in the loss.

Even though Troy went 0-2 in the tournament, it was a fun experience for Sellers and his players.

“Ever since we voted on all-stars, everyday going to the ballpark has been a joy,” Sellers said. “Come Monday when we get off work and we are not going to the ballpark, it’s going to be a surreal moment.”
