Alabama scores 15 runs in one inning

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- After heavy rain and hail delayed the start time by more than an hour, Alabama’s offense came alive in a 17-0 drubbing over Mississippi Valley State on Tuesday at Rhoads Stadium.

The 17 runs scored were the most by Alabama (26-8) since defeating Western Illinois 21-0 on Feb. 22, 2013. Fifteen of the Tide’s runs came in a big third inning, as 20 Tide batters got an at-bat in the big half-inning. Six of Alabama’s 14 hits were doubles, which is tied for the third most in a single game.

Leslie Jury (5-3) faced just one batter in the minimum, striking out nine over 5.0 shutout innings. Mississippi Valley State (8-27) starter Sydney Coe (1-8) lasted 2.0 innings in the circle while reliever Rebekah Clinton failed to record an out while allowing eight earned runs in the big third inning.
