Bama Baseball Suffers Tough Loss to UAB Tuesday Night
Under the shining lights of The Joe, the Alabama Crimson Tide took a tough loss against its sister school out east, UAB. With the final score being 7-6, the team was disappointed in its performance and the game itself.
The game was a close match overall, with the teams always remaining within one point of each other. Defensively, the teams’ stats were very close, but the most notable thing the teams shared on Tuesday night was the number of walks they had in the game.
UAB threw Alabama 73 balls and the Tide threw 72 balls to them. Alabama’s strike percentage was 58.1 and UAB’s was 57.8.
Coach Brad Bohannon said he was very disappointed in the way the team played and cannot figure out the reason they cannot pull out a win in the Tuesday evening games.
Bohannon later said, “I’m doing an incredibly poor job getting us ready to play on Tuesdays. We’ve tried everything. We’ve tried light practice, we’ve tried giving them a day off, and nothing is working.”
He continued, saying “We played poorly. We didn’t deserve to win, we didn’t do anything well, we can’t walk them eight or nine times…poor efforts yet again. We will keep trying different things to figure something out. We will take tomorrow off and get ready to play against Georgia on Friday.”
Alabama's baseball team will continue its season this weekend by resuming conference play in a series against No. 10 University of Georgia at The Joe.
