Tide lovin' main squeeze

It bunted.
Over and over again.
And, no, this is not a joke.
In breaking up a scoreless game with a four-run outburst in the seventh inning, Alabama scored two runs on squeeze bunts and also had a sacrifice bunt.
It looked like a polite version of baseball on a day that the Tide made small ball big and eliminated the Razorbacks in the losers bracket game.
Alabama (40-18) plays at 6:30 tonight in another elimination game against the loser of Thursday's late game between Ole Miss and LSU.
"We seemed to do everything right in the inning that mattered," leadoff hitter Emeel Salem said.
