Weekend Series: vs. Louisiana-Lafayette
Alabama recovered with a 8-3 win over Houston on Sunday after two heartbreaking losses earlier in the weekend. Sophomore outfielder Casey Hughston has been off to a scorching start. He is hitting .636 with two home runs and nine extra-base hits in eight games. In the rotation, senior lefty Taylor Guilbeau has emerged as the Friday night starter for the Tide. He sports a 2.25 ERA with 14 strikeouts in two starts. His lone mistake of the year was a high fastball that resulted in a three-run homer by Houston infielder Chris Iriart in Friday’s 3-1 loss to the Cougars.
