Alabama baseball closed its home regular season with a series win over LSU, taking two of three games from the Tigers. With the series win, Alabama improved its record to 32-19 overall and 12-15 in SEC play.

In the series opener on Friday night, Alabama used a ninth-inning rally to escape with an 8-7 walkoff win over LSU.

The Tigers and Tide exchanged runs in the first four innings. LSU scored one in the first inning, and Alabama responded with one in the second. Both teams then scored two runs each in the fourth, tying the game at 3-3. LSU added two more runs in the fifth and two in the eighth, giving them a four-run lead. However, in the eighth inning, a two-run homer from TJ McCants trimmed the Tiger lead to two runs, and an RBI-single from Gage Miller made it a one-run game heading into the ninth.

Alabama loaded the bases in the ninth with two outs after two walks and a hit by a pitch. With the bases filled, William Hamiter hit a swinging bunt towards the LSU mound, however a wild throw by the Tiger catcher went into right field, allowing two runs to score for the 8-7 walkoff victory.

LSU evened the weekend series, handing Alabama a 6-3 loss on Saturday afternoon.

LSU's three-run seventh inning was the deciding factor on Saturday. Alabama started strong with a run in the first, but LSU responded with two runs in the second to take a 2-1 lead. The Crimson Tide leveled the game with one run in the fourth, but the Tigers pulled ahead with one run in the sixth before extending their lead with three more runs in the seventh. Alabama managed to score one run in the seventh but couldn't close the gap, resulting in a 6-3 final score.

Zane Adams suffered his fourth loss of the season, pitching 5.1 innings and giving up three runs on six hits and four walks, while achieving a career-high six strikeouts.

Alabama closed out its home regular season with a 4-3 series-clinching win over LSU on Sunday afternoon thanks to an outstanding pitching performance from Ben Hess.

Alabama took an early 4-0 lead after three innings, scoring three runs in the second and one in the third. The Tigers scored a run in the fourth and added two more in the eighth but couldn't narrow the gap further, resulting in a 4-3 final score. The Tigers' late offensive push was halted by the relief duo of Tyler Fay and Braylon Myers. Fay and Myers combined for the final six outs, with Myers earning his third save of the season and second of the week.

Hess earned his fourth win of the season allowing just one run and three hits in 6.2 innings pitched.
