Bama wins in Athens over Georgia

Posted: Updated:

The Alabama baseball team scored three runs in the fourth, two runs in the sixth and added another run in the seventh innings en route to a 6-3 Southeastern Conference win over the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday evening from Foley Field. With the win, Alabama secures a road SEC series victory and improves to 15-9 overall and 4-1 in conference play. The Bulldogs fall to 8-15 overall and 0-5 in SEC play.

"As the guys see what the pitchers are trying to do and how they are trying to get them out, they start getting comfortable the second time through the lineup," Alabama head coach Mitch Gaspard said. "Obviously, we'd like to score early, but at the same time were scoring enough runs to get it down. Right now, the fourth through the seventh innings has been the time when we're collecting multiple runs, as one good at-bat leads to another. For nine innings, were putting a lot of pressure on the opposing defense and pitcher, because were having so many quality at-bats."

Trailing 1-0 heading to the fourth inning, Alabama scored three times against the Bulldogs and never looked back. The inning included a big two-out, two-run single by Cameron Carlisle with the bases loaded to give the Tide the lead. Mikey White followed with a single to right field to cap the scoring in the inning.
