Alabama traveled to Troy for a midweek game Tuesday night.
The Crimson Tide was able to grab two eight inning runs to just overmatch the
Trojans 2-1.

After Chandler Avant doubled to put him
and Georgie Salem in scoring position, Hunter Webb was able to put the ball in
play to bring Salem home. Then Chance Vincent, who was 3 for 4 on the day, singled
to score the game-winning run.

Alabama has now improved to 7-1 on the season after the win.
Alabama had a committee of six pitchers combine for the one-run outing. Jon
Keller made the start and pitched the first four innings, giving up the one
earned run for Alabama in the game. Then five others pitched one inning
including Thomas Burrows who picked up his fourth save of the season and 22nd of
his career.

The 22nd save is an Alabama record. Burrows has
struck out 11 of the 19 batters he has faced this season, and has yet to allow
a baserunner.

Alabama will travel to Cary, North Carolina this
weekend for four games in the USA Baseball-Irish Classic against Notre
Dame, Niagara, N.C. State and Brown.
