HOOVER, Ala. – Alabama baseball advanced to the double-elimination portion of the 2022 Southeastern Conference Baseball Tournament with a 5-3 win over Georgia on a long Tuesday at Hoover Metropolitan Stadium. The win moves the Crimson Tide to 30-25 on the season.

First pitch between the Tide and Bulldogs was delayed by 35 minutes before the game finally got underway at 10:05 a.m. CT. The two teams got through only 2.5 innings with Alabama leading 5-1 before entering a second rain delay that lasted just over two hours.

The long break forced an early exit from Garrett McMillan with the Tide starter contributing 2.0 frames. Ben Hess (3-1) took the mound after the delay and dominated. The freshman allowed just one hit and one walk while striking out an Alabama season-high 10 batters in his 4.1 relief frames for the win. Following Hess' exit, the Bulldogs were able to add two more runs before Dylan Ray came in for the ninth, shutting down UGA in order for his seventh save of the season and the 5-3 final.

From Head Coach Brad Bohannon

"I'm really proud of our club. Obviously, it was a do-or-die day for us, and I'm really proud of the way they came out. You could tell that our kids were really excited today and came out hot. It was tough after the rain delay for both teams. How about Ben Hess? Sitting there for two hours, didn't even know if he was going to pitch today, and he comes out and punches out seven of the first eight guys. So, I'm really proud of our team and excited that we get to stick around for a little while.

How It Happened​

  • T1 | Caden Rose started the game off with a double. He came home in the next at-bat thanks to an RBI-single from Andrew Pinckney. Pinckney proceeded to steal second before moving to third on an infield groundout. Tamez followed with a walk to put runners on the corners before a flyout in foul territory allowed Pinckney to tag home and Tamez to head to second. Zane Denton then came through with a two-out single to left to score Tamez for the Tide's third run. (3-0, Alabama)
  • T2 | The Tide loaded the bases with two down for Drew Williamson. A wild pitch in Williamson's at-bat allowed Pinckney to score from third for the first run, with Williamson then sending a sacrifice fly to center to cross one more. (5-0, Alabama)
  • B2 | Parks Harber hammered a ball over the wall in right for a solo home run. (5-1, Alabama)
  • B8 | Connor Tate recorded a two-run home run to narrow the gap. (5-3, Alabama)

HOOVER, Ala. – Alabama baseball picked up a second win in the 2022 SEC Tournament with a 4-3 victory over 10th-ranked and third-seeded Arkansas on Wednesday evening at Hoover Metropolitan Stadium. The Crimson Tide is now 31-25 on the season and 2-0 in the league's postseason tournament.

Alabama was first on the board with two runs in the second and added one more in the top of the third. The Razorbacks struck for one in the home half of the third with the Tide countering for one in the top of the fourth to make it a 4-1 ballgame after four. Arkansas then narrowed the deficit to one with a two-run home run in the sixth but would get no closer. Alabama's bullpen combined to keep Arkansas off the board for the final 2.2 frames to secure the 4-3 win.

Following the two-run homer, Landon Green entered to record one out. Antoine Jean (5-1) was next, earning his fifth victory of the season thanks to an impressive outing. The left-hander tossed 2.0 scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and a walk to go with three strikeouts. Tide closer Dylan Ray shut the door with a strikeout to end the ballgame and notch his eighth save of the season and second in Hoover.

From Head Coach Brad Bohannon

"It was an awesome college baseball game. Fortunately for us, Arkansas helped us a little bit early. To our guys' credit, we took advantage of some mistakes that they made, and, really, the story of the game is that both bullpens were outstanding. There weren't very many hits in the back half of the game. I was really proud of our whole team, but especially those guys that pitched after Jacob McNairy gave us a good start today. Obviously, a big win for us on so many levels. I'm really happy for our kids and proud of them."

I know it's changing the rules in the middle of the tournament, but they need to go to single elimination immediately. Send Arkansas home. They are going to be hosting a regional regardless of what happens the rest of the week. They would probably prefer to be resting their pitching anyway. The tournament at this point doesn't need the 4 extra games that double elimination would require.
