OKLAHOMA ST SHORTSTOP TOM BELZA
The Alabama Baseball Team lost to the Oklahoma State Cowboys 10-6 in the opening game of the Clemson regional Friday afternoon... The cowbays corraled the tide due in large part to the contributions of Oklahoma State shortstop Tom Belza who belted three home runs on the day, and collected six RBI'S; including a first inning grand slam off Alabama ace pitcher Austin Hyatt who was knocked out with only two outs in the third inning recorded. Belza who had only hit three home runs during the regular season doubled his season total with Friday's performance.
ALABAMA will play TENNESSEE TECH in an elimination game tomorrow at 2 o'clock central time, while the host CLEMSON will play OKLAHOMA STATE in the winners bracket game at 6 o'clock central. Bama will likely send freshman phenom ADAM MORGAN to the mound for tomorrow's start while Tennessee Tech's starter is TBA.
