The people's voice of reason

Alabama falls to South Carolina

The University of Alabama baseball team fell in the first round of the Southeastern Conference Tournament to the University of South Carolina 5 to 10. The loss in Hoover makes the Tide's likelihood of getting an invitation to the NCAA tournament highly unlikely; but it is still a possibility.

"We are not thrilled with the result, but South Carolina played well – you have to tip your cap to them," Vaughn said. "Now we kind of sit and wait. We'll go back and practice, continue to prepare, and hopefully we get a chance to keep playing baseball next week."

Alabama had a 3 to 0 lead after two innings but gave up 6 runs in the third inning. Bama scored 2 runs in the fourth inning to narrow it to 5 to 6; but South Carolina's pitching won out down the stretch while adding a run in the fifth inning, 2 in the sixth inning, and 1 in the eighth inning.

Alabama has lost three of its last four games, which includes a series loss to Auburn in Auburn.

Alabama finishes 33 and 22 on the season; while South Carolina improves to 34 and 21.
