Alabama Baseball Game Suspended
Alabama and Auburn will resume the game on Saturday, May 16, at 11 a.m. (CDT), followed by a seven-inning game at 3 p.m. (CDT) and will be televised by FoxSports South. If the suspended game is not completed by 2 p.m., it will be halted and resumed following the completion of the regularly scheduled television game.
Auburn put the three batters on base in the bottom of the first inning to grab a quick 1-0 lead. Trent Mummey was hit by a pitch and scored on Ben Jones' double off the left field wall. Brian Fletcher drew a walk to put runners on first and third with no outs. Del Howell put an end the rally with a huge strike out of Hunter Morris and some good fortune. With one out, Tony Caldwell popped to second baseman Brandon May and was immediately called out by the infield fly rule. May did not make the catch of the pop up and Fletcher broke for second, where he was easily retired on a bizarre double play.
After leaving two runners on base in the second inning, Alabama left three more runners in the third inning as Josh Rutledge struck out with the bases loaded.
Alabama did get a run in the top of the third inning on a two-out walk to Jake Smith followed by a two-out RBI double by Clay Jones to tie the game at 1-1.
Auburn regained the lead in the bottom of the third inning on four straight two outs hits, including RBI singles by Caldwell and Casey McElroy.
