SEC baseball pitching matchup including Alabama’s Thursday and Friday pitchers

Nick Eicholtz will take mound for Alabama Friday

This week the Southeastern Conference baseball schedule has another slight tweak. Early in the season, SEC teams played their three-game series Friday-Sunday. A few weeks ago the schedule began to have a couple of series played Thursday-Saturday.
Alabama will be playing its third consecutive Thursday-Saturday series when the Crimson Tide hosts LSU. But Ole Miss will play a single game at Arkansas Thursday with the Rebels and Razorbacks wrapping up the series with a doubleheader Friday.
Alabama has the same announced rotation as last week with sophomore left-hander Dylan Duarte opening up on Thursday and Nick Eicholtz pitching Friday. Bama has not announced a Saturday starter. Last week it was Jake Walters, who had been the Crimson Tide’s Friday (first night) series starter early in the season.
