By WVUA-23 Sports Reporter Alex Boothe
A big night at the plate for the Crimson Tide offense led Alabama to a 10-2 win over Troy.
The Alabama offense had ten hits and drew eight walks on their way to scoring double digit runs for the fourteenth time this season. The Crimson Tide scored five runs in the fourth inning to jump out to a 8-0 lead.
Outfielder Tommy Seidl led the Tide with a three for three with an RBI and a run scored. Second baseman Bryce Eblin had a team-high three runs batted in.
Alabama starting pitcher Jacob McNairy picked up his fourth win of the season, going 4.2 innings while allowing one run on three hits and no walks.
“Jacob McNairy gave us a great start and the guys out of the pen were really sharp,” Alabama head coach Brad Bohannon said. “We had a lot of production up and down the lineup. We scored five of the eight times we batted. We got a lot of guys in the game, which I’ve been wanting to do. So, I’m really proud of our club, we really played well. This was a good game for us to build some momentum going into a big weekend.”
Alabama is back in action on Thursday against Mississppi State at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. Game one of the series begins at 6 p.m.
