Andrea Rogers was hit-by-a-pitch to give the Blazers a 1-0 advantage, while Nicole Whitlock grounded into a double play allowing McCall and Krazan to score extending the UAB lead to 3-0.
The Blazers tacked on runs in the fourth and fifth inning capitalizing on a bases loaded walk and a wild pitch to make it 5-0.
UAB closed out the game in the sixth inning getting RBIs from Kayla Harris, Jacy Leon and McCall for the final margin of 8-0.
Harris was touched up for two hits in six innings and struck out four batters against one walk to improve to 10-5 on the season, while Carla Kennimer dropped to 7-2 suffering her first C-USA defeat in five starts.
