Both Alabama baseball and softball struggled on the road in SEC play this past weekend.

Brad Bohannon's Crimson Tide baseball squad lost all three games at Texas A&M while Patrick Murphy's Crimson Tide softball squad lost two of three games at Arkansas.

Both teams have a full slate of games this week with baseball hosting Samford Tuesday night, Alcorn State Wednesday and Auburn over the weekend while softball entertains Southern Miss Wednesday night and Tennessee Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

During this week's edition of the Across the Diamond podcast, James Hardy and Josh Smith examine Texas A&M's success against Alabama and where Alabama softball is as a program after losing a three-game SEC series to Arkansas for the first time in school history.
