Alabama Baseball bounced back in a big way after last night’s loss with a 12-1 run rule win to even the series up in Aggieland.
The 45-minute rain delay did not bother the Tide’s bats one bit to start the game as Andrew Pinckney hit a no doubt three-run homer to start the game.
Alabama got into the Aggie bullpen early after getting Will Johnston’s pitch count to 70. Mac Guscette made the bullpen pay with an RBI single to add another run.
The Tide continued to make the A&M bullpen pay in the fifth, scoring eight runs. Jim Jarvis had two RBIs, Tommy Seidl had one, Pinckney hit his second three-run homer of the game and Colby Shelton hit his third home run of the weekend.
Garrett McMillan got the start for the Tide and had an excellent run, stranding six Aggies on base and displaying dominance all over the strike zone. McMillan went six innings allowing one run on five hits with five strikeouts and tallied his second win to improve to 2-2 on the season.
The Tide as a team had 12 runs on 12 hits and were led at the plate by Pinckney who went 3-5 with six RBIs and two home runs. Other notables included Shelton who went 2-3 with two RBIs and one home run, and Jarvis who went 2-4 with two RBIs.
Alabama will look to take its second series in a row with first pitch set for tomorrow at 3 p.m. CST on the SEC Network.
