Tide wins series finale against Arkansas

Posted: Updated:
TUSCALOOSA, AL -

Alabama sophomore right-handed pitcher Spencer Turnbull extended his scoreless innings streak to 29.2 innings after throwing seven scoreless against No. 9 Arkansas, leading the Crimson Tide to a 5-0 Southeastern Conference victory on Saturday afternoon from Sewell-Thomas Stadium. Alabama earned their 20th win of the year to move to 20-13 and 8-4 in conference play, and Arkansas' loss dropped them to 23-9 overall and 8-4 in the SEC.

Turnbull (4-1) earned the win in his eighth start of the year for the Tide. Turnbull allowed five hits and two walks, while striking out five to move his scoreless streak to 29.2 innings pitched. Sophomore south paw Justin Kamplain and freshman right-hander combined to give Alabama two scoreless innings to complete the shutout of the Razorbacks. Arkansas starting pitcher Randall Fant (2-1) was charged with the loss after lasting just three innings, allowing two runs on five hits with a strikeout.

Senior catcher Brett Booth led the Tide offensively, with his third home run of the season, a walk single and two walks, to go along with two RBI and two runs scored. Freshman center fielder Georgie Salem had three singles to record his 10th multi-hit effort and his fifth three-hit performance of the year, and freshman shortstop Mikey White and senior left fielder Andrew Miller each also notched a two-hit game.
