Notes From Tide's South Alabama Game

Alabama was beaten by South Alabama in Mobile by the unlikely score of 21-16 Wednesday night. The Crimson Tide returns to Southeastern Conference action this weekend hosting Kentucky. Here are notes from Bama's Wednesday game.



Alabama hit two home runs on Wednesday night and now shares the SEC lead with 86 home runs this season. The Tide has homered in 37 of 41 games this season.

Josh Rutledge became the seventh player in school history to hit for the cycle and the third this season, joining Kent Matthes (vs. Nicholls State on Feb. 24) and Jake Smith (vs. Samford on April 15).

Freshman left fielder Taylor Dugas was 1-for-3 with two runs scored and now reached base safely in 31 consecutive games for the Tide.

The 21 runs scored by South Alabama are the most given up by Alabama since a 21-9 loss to Tennessee during the 2000 season. The 21 runs are the most ever scored by the Jaguars against the Tide. The previous high was 16 runs in a 17-16 loss to the Crimson Tide during the 2003 season.

This was the highest scoring game in series history. The previous high was 33 runs in a 17-16 UA win in 2003.
