Alabama Baseball Plays AU Tuesday
Alabama is not clicking on all cylinders after a couple of weeks of play. Bama lost two of three to Tulane and had another road loss to Southern Miss last week and is now at 5-6 on the season.
The Crimson Tide will take on Auburn in the Capital City Classic at Riverfront Park in Montgomery at 7 p.m. CST Tuesday. The game will be regionally telecast by CSS.
Later this week Alabama will host the Alabama Baseball Classic at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. Bama will meet East Carolina at 6 p.m. Friday, Louisville at 4 p.m. Saturday, and Oral Roberts at 2 p.m. Sunday.
Alabama's two wins in a 2-3 week were good ones. The Tide came from behind to defeat South Alabama in Tuscaloosa, then took the middle game of the three-game series at Tulane by scoring five runs in the first inning and holding on for a 6-2 victory.
Freshman right-handed pitcher Jake Hubbard had a win and a save in those two games. In four and two-thirds innings he did not give up a run. He gave up four hits, but had three strikeouts and only one walk.
Jared Reaves had a good week at the plate with a .368 average, including a two-run single in the eighth inning that provided the winning margin against South Alabama. Reaves has hit safely in 10 straight games.
As a team, Bama hit .245 in the five games.
Alabama did well in the field last week, turning eight couble plays and committing just four errors in 180 chances.
