Cole Fredrick & Grant Atkins back in Ttown
Alabama vs Jacksonville State, oh it was exciting, runners on first and second and two down, freshman Sam Praytor lined a double down the third base line for the winning runs in a 9-8 walkoff victory over JSU.
The Tide sits at 25-25 and Cole Fredrick (former Hillcrest) and Grant Atkins (former ACA) homeboys back in Tuscaloosa proved to be really tuff. Gosh i wish we'd see these 2 in Crimson, JSU is lucky to have em.
From the UA report....
“I’m glad we got the win,” said Alabama head coach Brad Bohannon. “It was an ugly game. We made a lot of mistakes tonight, and I was frustrated, but the effort and energy was there. Our guys hung in there, and we were able to get a big knock late. I credit our kids for having the resolve to finish strong at the end and pull it out.”
The Crimson Tide entered the ninth trailing 8-7. With one down in the inning, junior Cobie Vance singled through the left side before fellow junior Joe Breaux followed with a walk to place runners on first and second. A strikeout in the next at-bat went as the Tide’s second out of the frame, bringing Praytor to the dish for the Tide’s final opportunity. With the count even at 1-1, the UA backstop sent a single down the line in left to score both Vance and Breaux and secure the walkoff win for the Tide.
