Alabama baseball is last in the SEC and hosting No. 15 LSU

Alabama has all-time winning record in baseball vs. LSU

To say that it has been a rough season for the Alabama baseball season is an understatement The Crimson Tide has played six Southeastern Conference series and has a 2-16 league record, easily worst in the conference. Bama has gone 1-2 in two series and 0-3 in four.
The Crimson Tide of Coach Greg Goff is coming off a disheartening SEC weekend as Bama lost three one-run games to No. 11 Mississippi State.
Things don’t get easier as Alabama hosts No. 15 LSU at Sewell-Thomas Stadium for a three-game SEC series from Thursday through Saturday. The Crimson Tide and Tigers are set for a 6:30 p.m. CT first pitch in tonight’s series opener. The second game of the series is slated to start at 6 p.m. CT with the series finale scheduled for 2 p.m. CT. The opener will air nationally on ESPN2.
The three-game set for Alabama will feature two of its regular weekend starters in the first two games, with the Saturday starter still to be announced. Thursday’s opener will feature sophomore left-hander Dylan Duarte, who will be making his team-leading 11th start of the season. Following Duarte will be senior righty Nick Eicholtz on Friday. The outcomes of the first two games will determine who will throw for UA on Saturday.
The Tigers (27-15 overall and 10-8 in SEC games) will call on their regular weekend trio of pitchers for the series in Tuscaloosa. Thursday’s opener will feature junior right-hander Alex Lange, followed by senior lefty Jared Poché on Friday evening. LSU will feature freshman right-hander Eric Walker for the series finale.
Alabama and LSU will meet for the 367th time overall when the two teams square off in the series opener on Thursday night. The Crimson Tide holds the all-time advantage, 201-162-3 and 115-66 in home games.
