On Tuesday night at 6 p.m., the Samford Bulldogs visited Tuscaloosa coming in with a 23-14 record, 10-2 in conference, and won the game at The Joe 6-0. Currently, the Bulldogs are
on a 13 game winning streak, including beating Mercer in a series last week, with experience on their side. Casey Dunn, Samford’s head coach, continues with his 14th season with the team and
430 wins for Bulldog Baseball.
While the Tide had a great start, with Mason Duke pitching a strike the first pitch of the game on his fourth time starting on the mound. Samford quickly caught speed, scoring their
first two run at the top of the first. A wild pitching error allowed another run into home for the Bulldogs at the top of the third and David Vainer came in relief. Despite the Tide’s pitching change that seemed to be moving the Tide in the right direction, Samford hit a solo home run to put the Bulldogs up 4-0. Samford’s speed on the bases earned the club two more runs in the top of the ninth. Despite great hits from Jett Manning and a variety of pitching techniques, Samford took the win. The Tide plays Alcorn State tomorrow, Wednesday, April 18th at 6 p.m. at The Joe, and it will also be available for viewing on SEC Network or 102.9 fm radio.
