Southern tops Alabama State in extras
BATON ROUGE - Southern and Alabama State never faced each other in the regular season.
But today, fans in New Orleans got to see why they are two of the best teams in the SWAC.
Southern defeating 13-12 in a drama filled 10 inning thriller. DJ Wallace hitting the go-ahead RBI single in the top 10, scoring Marcus Tomlin to put the Jags up.
The Jags at one time led 8-0 in the game before the Hornets put up 8 runs in the bottom of the 4th inning to tie it at 8. Southern also held a 12-9 in the 9th, before ASU scored 3 runs in the bottom of the frame to send it to extras.
Southern is now in the drivers seat on their side of the bracket. Southern will wait until 3 pm to see if they will face Jackson State or Alabama State.
