Tide Baseball Trying To End Losing Skid
Alabama will host UAB at 6 p.m. CDT Tuesday at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. Alabama has relatively good luck in these midweek games with an 8-3 overall record. One of those losses, though, was a 1-0 setback at the hands of UAB at the Hoover Met on March 26.
Alabama is 22-16 overall and 8-7 in Southeastern Conference games. UAB is 16-10 and coming off a 9-8 win over Memphis that ended a four-game losing streak for the Blazers.
Following the game against UAB, Alabama will remain home to host the second ranked LSU Tigers this weekend. The SEC three-game series will begin on Friday with first pitch at 6:30 CDT. Game two of the series will begin at 7 p.m. CDT Saturday and will be televised on FSN. The series concludes beginning 1 p.m. Sunday.
Tuesday night will be $2 Tuesday at Sewell-Thomas. All general admission tickets will be $2.
Alabama will start freshman right-hander Mike Oczypok against UAB. In his last outing, and first start, last week he pitched five innings of no-hit ball in beating Alcorn State. He is 2-0 with an earned run average of 2.08.
UAB will go with sophomore right-hander Alex Luna (0-2, 7.90 ERA).
Last week the Tide defeated Alcorn State in two games, 3-2 and 7-3, and has three consecutive mid-week wins.
Alabama has won only one of its last six SEC games, although Bama has won six of its last 10 overall. Since defeating Alabama, the Blazers have gone 6-6.
The Tuesday night mid-week game against UAB will mark the 62nd meeting all-time between the two schools. Alabama holds a 41-20 overall record against UAB, but the Blazers have won the last four meetings. In Tuscaloosa Bama has a 22-7 advantage.
