SEATTLE, Wash. – Alabama softball closed its weekend at the Husky Classic Sunday against Northwestern, falling 4-0 to the Wildcats.

Alabama (12-5) tallied just three hits against Northwestern (10-8), while two key swings in the fourth inning, an RBI single and three-run home run, gave the Wildcats all the offense it would need. Alexis Osorio (3-3) tied a season high with 10 strikeouts but took the loss in the complete-game effort.

Next weekend, Alabama returns home for its final non-conference weekend, hosting the Easton Crimson Classic on March 9-11. There, the Tide will face Boston College and Fordham twice before finishing the weekend with a single game against Samford.
