Seventeen hits and seven runs provided enough insurance for the Crimson Tide pitching staff, as Alabama baseball battled for the 7-6 win on Saturday in the series-clinching game against Auburn.

With the win, the Tide improves to 27-24 overall and 10-16 in SEC play.

“It feels good to get the win, but I'm more pleased with the way our team played and responded with their backs to the wall,” said Alabama head coach Mitch Gaspard. “Offensively, I thought we were really good. We showed good resolve when they regained the lead; we were able to come right back and answer, and that is a good sign for our group.”

The loss drops Auburn to 32-19 overall and 12-14 in league play.

“The guys fought back really well and came back and took the lead in the sixth and tied it up again in the seventh,” Auburn head coach Sunny Golloway said. “We just never could really build momentum. We were pitching up in the bullpen and that's two nights in a row we were up in the zone. They've got a lineup that will hurt you if you are up in the zone.”

Auburn and Alabama wrap the series on Sunday at 1 p.m. Auburn's three seniors will be honored in a ceremony before first pitch.
