Baseball loses third straight game to Jacksonville State

Timely hitting was Alabama’s Achilles heel once again. The Crimson Tide failed to record a hit with a runner on base and finished just 1-for-9 with two outs, losing to Jacksonville State 4-0. It was the first time in 38 matchups Jacksonville State shutout the Crimson Tide. “Jacksonville State absolutely took it to us,” coach Brad Bohannon said. “I am really, really disappointed in our group. I obviously did a very poor job of trying to get our kids ready to play tonight. It was noticeably our worst effort of the year.”
