On the offensive side, Josh Rosecrans, Brock Bennett and Jared Reaves shined for the Tide. Rosecrans went 2-for-4 with 2 RBI. Bennett went 2-for-3, belting two doubles with an RBI and two runs. Reaves went 2-for-4 on the night, crossing the plate three times himself. All together, the Tide accumulated 11 hits for the night.
