In the second game of the series, Alabama struggled to get the bats going and was shut out by Kentucky 7-0.

Kentucky took an early lead, scoring one run in the first inning and adding two more in the second to go up 3-0.

Dominic Niman allowed just three hits in his complete game shutout win for the Wildcats. Alabama’s Greg Farone surrendered his first loss of the season despite a solid appearance on the mound.

In the series finale, Alabama’s bats were once again held in check as Kentucky limited the Crimson Tide to just one run in its 10-1 victory.

Fresh off a completed game shutout the day before, Kentucky delivered another sensational pitching performance against the Crimson Tide on Sunday.
