Baseball Tigers Even Series with Tide

Posted by KTGRStaffs on May 11, 2013

Missouri scored runs in each of the first four innings and held on to defeat Alabama to even the three-game series with a 7-3 victory Saturday afternoon.

Mizzou started the day off right with an RBI-single from Dane Opel, but Alabama equalized right away with a solo home run by Georgie Salem to make it 1-1 after the opening frame. The Tigers added a home run from Scott Sommerfeld to take the lead, and RBI-singles by Keaton Steele and Brannon Champagne in the third and fourth made it 4-1. The stretch capped six straight innings with a run for Mizzou, dating back to the eighth inning of Friday night’s affair.

Mikey White homered in the fifth and drove in another with a single in the sixth to conclude the scoring for Alabama. Missouri plated an insurance run in the seventh on a bases-loaded hit-by-pitch, and two more in the ninth on an RBI-single by Steele and a Dylan Kelly sacrifice fly..

The series’ deciding game takes place Sunday afternoon, with coverage on KTGR starting at 12:15 PM from Tuscaloosa.
