Alabama Athletics

HOOVER, Ala. -- With a runner on second in the 11th inning, Mikey White delivered a single to the gap in right-center field to give Alabama baseball the 7-6 win over Georgia on Friday evening. With the victory, the Crimson Tide improves to 17-15 on the year and 5-8 in the SEC.

Alabama entered extra innings for the fourth time this season after Georgia was able to tie the game up in the ninth. The two teams went to extras with the Bulldogs putting up two in the 10th, but the Tide matching them with a pair of their own. Alabama's pitching was able to shut down Georgia in the 11th to move it to the home half of the inning. Georgie Salem led off the frame with a double down the left field line and then Mikey White delivered a single to the gap on his seventh pitch of the at-bat to send the Crimson Tide home with a win.

The offense was led by Cody Henry, with the freshman providing a career-high four hits and coming up a home run short of the cycle while adding a team-high three RBI on the night. White provided three hits on the evening with the most important one coming in the 11th to bring across his lone RBI for the game.

Alabama will look to clinch the series with Georgia tomorrow afternoon. The two teams are scheduled for a 3 p.m. start on SECN+. The Tide will send junior righty Will Carter to the mound while the Bulldogs will look to counter with junior left-hander Ryan Lawlor.
