Alabama grabs the series win vs. Auburn

  Kyle Overstreet and Mikey White each had three hits in the Tide's 7-6 victory.

AUBURN, Ala. -- Seventeen hits and seven runs provided enough insurance for the Crimson Tide pitching staff, as Alabama baseball battled for the 7-6 win on Saturday in the series-clinching game against Auburn. With the win, the Tide improves to 27-24 overall and 10-16 in SEC play.

"It feels good to get the win, but I'm more pleased with the way our team played and responded with their backs to the wall," said Alabama head coach Mitch Gaspard. "Offensively, I thought we were really good.

"We showed good resolve when they regained the lead; we were able to come right back and answer, and that is a good sign for our group."

In a game that featured three lead changes, the Crimson Tide came out on top in the end thanks to a standout offensive effort. Six Alabama hitters collected double-digits knocks while every starter recorded at least one hit on the afternoon. Georgie Salem and Kyle Overstreet each recorded three hits apiece with Overstreet providing a team-high two runs scored.

Alabama goes for the sweep of Auburn tomorrow after claiming the series this afternoon. The Crimson Tide will call on sophomore right-hander Geoffrey Bramblett in game three while the Tigers will counter with junior righty Dalton Rentz.
