Alabama baseball is moving on in the SEC Tournament. The Crimson Tide eliminated in-state rival Auburn 7-4 on Thursday.

The Crimson Tide broke the 0-0 tie in the bottom of the first inning. Outfielder Tommy Seidl launched a home run to left center field to give Alabama a 1-0 lead.

Seidl crossed home plate again in the third inning after a sacrifice fly allowed him to tag up from third base to make the score 2-1 Alabama.

Alabama would go on to score five more runs before the end of the game. Three RBI singles came in the fourth inning. Another sacrifice fly and RBI single in the sixth inning helped secure the victory.

Garrett McMillan pitched six innings in the win. He allowed 3 earned runs and 5 hits with 8 strikeouts.

Hunter Hoopes recorded the save after helping the Crimson Tide achieve the final two outs out of the game. Hoopes did not allow a hit and finished the game with 1 strikeout.

Alabama will be facing the loser of Vanderbilt-Florida on Friday.

The Crimson Tide had success against the Commodores in the regular season, winning two of three games in the series.

Alabama has had trouble with Florida as of late. The Gators walked off against the Crimson Tide thanks to a B.T. Riopelle three-run homer on Wednesday.

It would be an exciting rematch if Alabama and Florida met again in the SEC Tournament.
