Samford reliever Andrew Gracia (0-2) took the loss after throwing 0.1 innings, allowing an unearned run on two hits with a strikeout.
Freshman shortstop Mikey White was 3-for-5 with two runs scored to record his second multi-hit game of the year. Freshman second baseman Kyle Overstreet was 1-for-2 with a single two walks and two RBI, which came in the big four-run Alabama fifth. Senior catcher Brett Booth pitched in two walks and a run scored and junior first baseman Austen Smith had two singles, a walk and an RBI.
Sophomore left hander Taylor Guilbeau got the start for Alabama, giving the Tide 4.1 innings of work, while allowing three runs on seven hits and three walks with four strikeouts. Samford starting pitcher Patrick Maronde also did not factor into the decision after throwing 4.2 innings, allowing three runs on four hits with six walks and a strikeout.
