Alabama baseball finished its non-conference schedule with a 7-6 win on the road over No. 21 Troy.

With the win, Alabama improved its record to 30-18 overall while finishing 20-4 in non-conference play.

Alabama got off to a fast start by establishing a 3-0 lead by the end of the third inning. The Tide then extended it with two more runs in the fourth, including a solo home run by William Hamiter. Troy responded, scoring a run in the bottom of the fourth and added four more in the fifth to tie the game at 5-5. Hamiter's solo home run in the sixth inning put the Crimson Tide back in the lead, a crucial run as both teams scored once in the eighth, resulting in a final score of 7-6.

Hamiter, who was filling in for Evan Sleight in right field for the third consecutive game, came into Tuesday night with no home runs on the season. Hamiter hit his first home run of the season in the fourth inning and broke the tie with his second home run of the game in the sixth inning. Despite both home runs being solo shots, they proved to be a big difference in the outcome of the game.

"I've loved Hammy's at-bats all year," Alabama head coach Rob Vaughn said. "To see him get a little bit of an opportunity due to some unforeseen circumstances, he's just taken a lot of advantage of it."

Aidan Moza earned his third win of the season, pitching three innings in relief while Braylon Myers recorded his second save of the season, striking out one batter in the ninth.

Alabama will close out its last home series of the season against LSU beginning on Friday night at 6 p.m. CT, Saturday at 4 p.m. CT and the series finale at 1 p.m. CT on Sunday.
