UAB knocked two out of the park in the second inning Wednesday night and never looked back as they beat the No. 23 Crimson Tide 6-4 at Regions Park.
Alabama gave the Blazers quite a scare late in the game when they loaded the bases in the 8th inning, but UAB pitcher Nick Graffeo was finally able to strike the Tide out. Following that UAB scored two more runs to Alabama's one for that inning.
Alabama had one more chance to tie or beat UAB in the ninth but only managed one run, giving UAB the win. Alabama is ranked 23rd in one poll and 25th in another. The loss to UAB will almost certainly knock them out of the Top 25.
Alabama falls to 17-7 and UAB moves up to 15-8. The Tide and Blazers will play each other again on April 6th in Tuscaloosa. For compete post-game statistics and a more in-depth look at the game check out UABSports.com.
