Vols defeat No. 8 Alabama in walk-off

Posted:
KNOXVILLE (WATE)- The No. 29 Tennessee Vols rallied for a 10-9 walk-off win against No.8 Alabama on Sunday. 

A laced line drive down the right field line by Vincent Jackson gave Tennessee its fifth walk-off victory of the 2014 season, as the No. 29 Vols rallied from six down to defeat No. 8 Alabama 10-9 on Sunday afternoon in front of 1,845 at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.
The Vols (25-13, 7-11 SEC) came back from an 8-2 deficit in the eighth inning putting six on the board behind hits from A.J. Simcox, Christin Stewart, Taylor Smart, Jackson and Will Maddox to tie the game up at 8-8. The Big Orange batted around in the frame, with three of the five hits going for extra bases.
Alabama (28-12, 12-6) retook the lead in the top of the ninth off a solo home run to set up the Vols for the walk-off win.
Stewart started the ninth off by drawing a four-pitch walk, reaching base for the fourth time on the day. He came around to score in the next at-bat on a beast of a double to deep left center by freshman Nick Senzel. With one out, Jackson took the first pitch of his at-bat and sent it to the right field corner scoring Senzel to give the Vols the victory.
