CTSN Broadcaster Chris Stewart Recaps Alabama Baseball’s Sweep at Auburn [Audio]
Coming into the weekend, Alabama baseball did not have an SEC series win and recorded a total of two conference wins.
After the series was over, the Crimson Tide took all three games from Auburn including an 11-9 victory in Sunday’s 15-inning marathon.
Following his return trip from Auburn, veteran Crimson Tide Sports Network play-by-play broadcaster Chris Stewart relived Alabama’s incredible series during his appearance on “Inside the Locker Room”.
Prior to the Auburn series, Alabama dropped 12 of their 15 games decided by one run. Alabama baseball’s play-by-play voice described how the narrow losses had shaped much of the season.
“You go back to the Sunday game against Texas A&M where they lost 3-2. They followed that up, unfortunately, with three one-run losses at Mississippi State which State was 11th in the country at the time that they played them, and the last of those was, at the time, the longest game in Alabama history at five hours and forty-three minutes only to be trumped by what we did yesterday, six hours and thirty-six minutes for one ball game. You had a bunch of one-run games and that had been the story.” Stewart said.
As the Greg Goff era limped out of the gate through nearly three months of the season, Stewart analyzed the ramifications that Alabama’s sweep at Auburn could have for Coach Goff.
“It gives Greg Goff a lot to build on and something that fans can point to and hang on to. It gets people in off the ledge. I think it’s what it does in a situation like this, especially in year one.” Stewart mentioned.
The veteran CTSN play-by-play broadcaster also reviewed various umpiring decisions during the game and looked ahead to the final SEC home weekend of the season against Florida.
After cancelling a Tuesday trip to Samford, Alabama faces Grambling Wednesday at 6 PM for their final non-conference game of the season.
