Haynie, Turnbull lead Alabama to 3-0 win over Kentucky


TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Catcher Will Haynie homered and drove in two runs to lead Alabama to a 3-0 Southeastern Conference win over Kentucky Friday night at Sewell-Thomas Stadium.

Spencer Turnbull (2-1) allowed just four hits in 7 1-3 innings to pick up the victory. He struck out three and walked five.

A.J. Reed (3-1) allowed three runs on four hits in 7 innings and took the loss. He struck out six and walked four.

Turnbull and Reed each limited the other team's offense. Haynie's homer in the eighth inning gave the Tide a 2-0 lead. Alabama added another that inning when Chance Vincent scored on a wild pitch.

Due to weather, Alabama (11-5, 1-0 SEC) moved up a day its Game 3 in its home series against Kentucky (13-5, 0-1) at Sewell-Thomas Stadium.

The first game of the SEC doubleheader will start Saturday at 1:35 p.m.
