Will Haynie’s solo home run in the seventh broke the tie, lifting Alabama baseball to the 4-3 win over Missouri inside the Hoover Met on Thursday. The Crimson Tide has now won nine of its last 12 games and advances to the next round of the SEC Tournament.

Alabama jumped out to the early 1-0 lead, but Missouri countered with two in the fifth and one in the sixth to pull ahead, 3-1. The Tide would bounce right back with two in the bottom of the sixth to even the score up before Haynie’s leadoff home run in the seventh put Alabama ahead for good. Casey Hughston put together another multi-hit effort that included a double, while adding an RBI and a run scored. Cody Henry remained hot, finishing the day 1-for-3 with a team-leading two RBI.

Senior Taylor Guilbeau collected his third win of the season and his first against an SEC foe with a 7.0 inning, three-run performance on the morning. Fellow senior Jay Shaw tossed a 1-2-3 inning in the eighth and sophomore Thomas Burrows closed out the ninth with two strikeouts to earn his seventh save of the season.

With the win, Alabama will play at 3 p.m. CT tomorrow afternoon in a quarterfinal matchup against the loser of the contest between Texas A&M and Vanderbilt. The game will air on the SEC Network once again, this time with Dave Neal, Kyle Peterson, Chris Burke and Kayce Smith on the call.
