Bama baseball stomps Jacksonville State
By WVUA 23 Sports Reporter Drew Pavan
The University of Alabama baseball team has had their fare share of struggles with mid-week games this season but that was not the case Tuesday night.
The Crimson Tide was on the road for their final non-conference match up at Jacksonville State.
Alabama isn’t too hot against mid-week opponents this season, losing six mid-week games to smaller opponents.
However that was not the case Tuesday night at Rudy Abbott Field. The Tide got off to an early lead as Andrew Pinckney hammered a two-run shot over the left field wall to make it 2-0 in the first inning.
Four innings later in the top of the fifth, the Tide were able to load up the bases for junior Zane Denton, who sent a deep shot into right field for a grand slam that put the Tide up 7-0.
Denton leads the team with 12 home-runs on the season.
Top of the sixth, things were just not going Jacksonville’s way last night, as Alabama’s Tommy Seidl pops up a routine fly ball to left field and miscommunication by the outfielder and the shortstop caused the ball to drop and the Tide score two.
Later in the eighth the Crimson Tide would continue to just pour it on, as Seidl up to bat again unloads a two run home-run to give Bama the 13-3 lead.
The Tide would go on to win it 13-6.
Alabama will play this Friday at Auburn for a weekend series. First game will be at 7:30 p.m. on SEC Network.
