No. 11 Alabama wrapped up its first road SEC series against Georgia on Sunday by getting swept in the three-game series. The three losses drop Alabama’s record to 18-6 and 2-4 in SEC play on the season.

Alabama baseball lost both games of a doubleheader against Georgia on Saturday at Foley Field.

In the first game, Alabama and Georgia were tied 5-5 from the fourth inning on. However, a grand slam in the ninth inning sealed the victory for the Bulldogs. 

Gage Miller led the offense for the Crimson Tide going 2-for-4, scoring twice and driving in three runs.

Aidan Moza suffered the loss for Alabama, giving up four runs on three hits in the bottom of the ninth inning.

The second game saw the teams tied 3-3 after three innings, but Alabama took the lead with one run in the seventh. Georgia responded with two runs in the bottom of the seventh and one in the eighth to make it a 6-5 game. Despite Alabama scoring one more run in the ninth, they could not catch up, resulting in a 6-5 final score in favor of Georgia.

Miller’s offense carried over to the second game of the doubleheader driving in two runs on two hits as well as scoring three runs for the Crimson Tide.

Alton Davis suffered his first loss of the season, giving up two runs on two hits and two walks in two-thirds of an inning pitched.

In the series finale, Georgia got the win over Alabama for a third straight time by winning the game 10-5, completing the series sweep.

Getting runners on base was not a problem for the Crimson Tide, but driving those runners home was a different story. Alabama left 15 baserunners on base on Sunday.

In the bottom of the first, Georgia jumped out to an early 1-0 lead on a home run by Corey Collins. Alabama was able to tie it back up in the top of the second inning on an RBI double from Will Hodo. Georgia quickly gained back the lead in the bottom half of the second inning with a home run by Paul Toetz. After taking the lead in the second inning, the Bulldogs would never look back as Alabama was unsuccessful on the day hitting with runners on base.
