The Alabama Crimson Tide Baseball Team entered this week ranked 21st in the USA TODAY COACHES POLL. Bama built on the 12-1 record they had complied entering the week by picking up two mid-week wins versus BIG TEN foe Minnesota. The tide then prepared to face the 16th ranked VANDERBILT COMMODORES in the opening SEC series of the season. Alabama won the opening game of the series 4-1, highlighted by great pitching from starter Adam Morgan and the bullpen. The tide also won on Saturday by the score of 8-2. Starting pitcher Jimmy Nelson pitched 6 2\3 innings striking out seven, while Ross Wilson provided all the offense the team would need when he belted a three-run homer his 4th home run of the season so far. David Head pitched 2 2\3 innings of scoreless relief to finish the game. The team went for a sweep on Sunday and jumped out to a 4-1 in the 4th inning before giving up the lead and losing the series finale to Vandy by the score of 5-4.
