No. 15 Alabama finished the Frisco Classic 2-1 on the weekend, coming up just short in an extra inning game to No. 23 Dallas Baptist to suffer their first loss of the season.

Alabama’s high-powered offense continued to flourish, scoring 24 runs over the weekend.

The Crimson Tide opened up the Frisco Classic on Friday with a 12-0 run-rule win over No. 21 Indiana thanks to a couple of big innings and a stellar pitching performance from Ben Hess.

Hess improved his record to 3-0 pitching five shutout innings, allowing just one hit and tying a career-high with 10 strikeouts. Coulson Buchanan came in relief of Hess and threw two innings of hitless ball, striking out three batters and earning his first career save for the Crimson Tide.

The Tide offense scored all 12 of their runs in two innings. In the top of the first inning, Alabama plated five runs and followed it up in the fourth inning with seven more runs. Eight of Alabama’s nine starters recorded at least one hit on the night.

On Saturday, Alabama and Arizona went back-and-forth trading the lead multiple times resulting in a 7-6 win for the Crimson Tide.

Arizona took the lead on Saturday by scoring four runs in the fourth inning, highlighted by two two-run homers. Alabama responded quickly, scoring three runs in the fifth inning and tying the game in the sixth with a solo homer by Will Hodo. Alabama then took their first lead with a run in the seventh, but Arizona came back with two runs in the bottom of the inning. Alabama regained the lead in the eighth inning with two runs and held off Arizona's late push for a 7-6 victory.

Alton Davis picked up the win after throwing two scoreless innings and striking out three batters. Freshman Matthew Heiberger came in relief of Davis, pitching a scoreless ninth inning to record his first career save.

In the finale of the Frisco Classic, the Crimson Tide dropped their first game of the season, losing to No. 23 Dallas Baptist 7-5 in extra innings.

Dallas Baptist jumped on the board first in the top of the second after pulling off a double steal of home and second base. Alabama bounced back, plating three runs in their half of the second inning. The Crimson Tide plated two more in the fourth but would be held scoreless for the remaining eight innings. In the top of the 12th inning, Dallas Baptist’s third baseman Chayton Krauss crushed the first pitch of the at-bat 447 feet for what would ultimately be the game-winning home run.
