TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Alabama baseball scored in four of the final five innings for the 12-2, eight-inning win over UAB on Tuesday evening at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. The Crimson Tide is now 18-4 on the season.

UAB took an early lead with one in the first and kept Alabama off the board until the fourth. That fourth saw the Tide score two runs to take the lead for good. Alabama added five in the sixth and two in the seventh before the Blazers tallied one in the eighth. The Tide then crossed three in the eighth to end the game at 12-2 for the run-rule victory.

The Tide offense was powered by Drew Williamson, who finished 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored. Tommy Seidl provided three hits as part of a perfect 3-for-3 effort that included a double and three runs scored. Colby Shelton joined the veterans with a multi-hit night, contributing two hits and a pair of runs while drawing one walk.

Jacob McNairy (3-1) got the win with 5.0 innings of one-run baseball. The right-hander allowed just four hits and issued no walks while striking out four.

From Head Coach Brad Bohannon

"I'm glad to get a win and be 18-4. To be quite honest, I didn't really like the way we came out to play. We sleepwalked through the first three or four innings. Once Jacob McNairy got us through the first inning, he settled down and really looked sharp in innings two through five. The bats woke up in the middle of the game there and then, obviously, there were some positives on the back half."
