Bama stays hot; finishes Auburn in SEC opener

Bama pitcher Jimmy Nelson racked seven strikeouts to tame the Tigers in the first game of the 2010 SEC Baseball Tournament in front of an overflow crowd at Regions Park today.

The Tigers took an early 1-0 lead but could muster no more as Nelson pitched his third straight complete game.  A 3 run 9th inning finished the deal for the Tide, sending the orange and blue faithful back to their tractors.

Auburn entered the game as the regular season SEC Western Division winner, batting a red hot  .354 on the season with 114 home runs (which lead the nation).  At one point this season, Abarn rolled 41 home runs in a 15 game stretch.

Polytech’s appearance in this year’s tournament is their first since 2003. Before today’s victory, Alabama had lost five straight first round games dating back to the same year.  The two teams had split their regular season games 2-2, with Bama taking the conference series 2-1 in Tuscaloosa and Abarn winning a non-conference match-up in Montgomery.

Bama will now face the winner of the South Carolina v. Ole Miss game tomorrow afternoon at 4:30pm.  As for Abarn, they find themselves in the loser’s bracket, facing the loser of the same game.

But since the game was close for most of the game, Abarn was able to rack another ever so important moral victory for their trophy case.  Said one Tiger fan leaving the stadium:  “Just gettin’ here agin wuz good enough; ya know it?!?  I can wore my overhauls with pride!!”

    Auburn Fans -> All bark, no bite.

    If they won every game they said they would win, they would be undefeated in every sport. I doubt Mandi has the guts to come on this site and talk trash.

    Come on back and take your medicine, Mandy. If I can do it after the 08 Iron Bowl, you can do it after a lousy baseball game.

    I hope our football team took note today of what can happen in the SEC when you aren’t mentally prepared. The underdog won all 4 games. Sure hope LSU hasn’t returned to the 36-6 form they started the season with. It is unlikely though since they are hurting at pitching. I think maybe they cashed in their chips today. Like the Barnies, without stoppers they’ll lose from the 3rd game on. Bama can’t afford to fall into the losers bracket either. Since we only have 3 star quality starters and Gastpard doesn’t intend to start Nelson again except for a championship game,

Since we only have 3 star quality starters and Gastpard doesn’t intend to start Nelson again except for a championship game, then we really, really don’t want to have to depend on our bullpen to stop heavy hitters like Barnie, Florida, LSU or USCe. If Kilcrease beats Ole Miss tomorrow – watch out – here comes Bama! RTR!

    Awbarn and USCe just commited baseball suicide by playing multiple extra innings in a double elimination tournament losing bracket game. Beat the Webels! Bwaa Haww Haww!!! RTR!

    It’s over and the Awbies won. Now we beat the Webels for the 3rd time in a week and Awbie plays them. Whichever one wins that game when we play them they will be down to pitching the waterboy. Adios suckers! Bring on the Corndogs or Gayturds RTR!

    What did I tell you? Roll Tide! Bama 6 Webels 3. Now lets root for the Awbies who will have to call up a pitcher from the ladies softball team to throw against us on Saturday. And for Vandy over LSU cause Vandy will never beat Florida and then Bama can go into the championship game with a game advantage over whoever else makes it there. RTR!
