Alabama sophomore pitcher Adam Morgan added his name to the list of Bama pitchers who went the distance to advance their teams in the 2010 SEC Baseball Tournament, allowing just two runs on six hits by the Gators.
Jimmy Nelson became the first on Wednesday, with Nathan Kilcrease basically doing the same pitching 8 1/3 innings in a win over Ole Miss. Kilcrease didn’t have a complete game by the books, but the effect of saving Bama’s pitching throughout the tournament was felt in his stint on the mound.
Morgan was only required to go seven innings, a result of the SEC opting for the shorter, seven inning games with threatening weather moving into the area.
Alabama now faces traditional power LSU in Sunday’s championship game. It will be the Tide’s first appearance in the championship game since 2003.
