Game One - 5-4 (10) | Box Score - Recap
Game Two - 5-4 | Box Score

Considering this is Alabama, there's no doubt that athletics are going to play a big role in recovery, and every bit of good news we can get on that front is going right on the front page whether we like the sport or not.  Despite everything going on at home, the Crimson Tide baseball team got back to work this afternoon in Starkville, sweeping the Bulldogs and taking the weekend series with identical 5-4 scores in both games.  Game one went into extra innings, and Tide pinch-hitter Brett Whitaker picked a perfect time to get his first hit of the season after eight at bats this year with nothing to show for it.  His solo shot homer over the left center field wall in the top of the tenth lifted the Tide to victory. In game two, the Tide fell behind 4-3 after giving up two runs in the bottom of the 7th, but a two run top of the eighth gave Alabama the final 5-4 margin.  The Tide now sit at 28-18 (10-10) on the season.  First pitch for Game Three is scheduled for tomorrow at 1:30pm CST.
