TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Alabama came up short, 6-5, to 19th-ranked LSU in Friday's matchup at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. The Crimson Tide is now 25-21 overall and 9-13 in Southeastern Conference play.

Alabama posted single tallies in the first and third frames for the early 2-0 lead, keeping LSU off the board until the fifth. That fifth saw the Tigers score five runs – only one earned – to gain a 5-2 advantage. The Tide countered in the home half of the fifth with a three-spot to knot things up at five apiece, before LSU crossed one run in the top of the sixth to retake the lead. That one run would prove the difference as both teams were held scoreless the rest of the way for the 6-5 final in favor of the Tigers.

The Crimson Tide offense totaled 11 hits on the night, highlighted by a three-hit effort from Jim Jarvis. Jarvis finished 3-for-5 with a stolen base and a team-high tying two runs. Also posting two runs was Caden Rose, with the sophomore going 2-for-4 with a double. Andrew Pinckney led UA in RBI with two as part of a 2-for-4 showing that included a double, a walk and one run.

Garrett McMillan was solid once again, allowing five runs (one earned) on eight hits and a walk with six strikeouts in his 5.0 innings of work. Brock Guffey (2-3) suffered the loss despite 4.0 innings of one-run baseball in relief. The win went to LSU reliever Riley Cooper (4-2) while Paul Gervase recorded his fifth save of the season with a scoreless ninth.

From Head Coach Brad Bohannon

"I tell the kids all the time that you can play well and still lose, and that's kind of what happened tonight. We did a lot of good things. It was probably one of our best offensive performances this year. We had a lot of really quality at-bats up and down the lineup consistently throughout the game. (Garrett McMillan) and Brock Guffey did a good job, competed well, and slowed them down on offense. Tonight, to me, the story of the game was that we just didn't defend the field well enough. LSU has a great team and it's a team that's going to win a Regional; your margin for error is slim when you play teams like that."
