The noise emanating in the Hoover Met was not the sound of thunder from a pending storm but instead the clap of Tennessee bats. Just two days after losing to the Crimson Tide in extra-innings, Tennessee hammered the Crimson Tide 11-0 to eliminate Alabama from the SEC Tournament in just seven innings.
The Alabama Crimson Tide (16-12) lost its midweek contest to the Louisiana Monroe Warhawks (11-14) 5-3. Alabama has now lost nine of its last 10 outings after defeating then No. 1 Arkansas on the road.
