No. 1 Tennessee (33-3, 14-1 SEC) defeated Alabama (24-13, 8-7 SEC), 15-4, Sunday at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.

Tennessee’s game No. 3 victory claimed a series win against Alabama. The Vols have recorded four series sweeps and a series win through the first five weeks of Southeastern Conference play.

Third base coach Josh Elander served as the Vols’ head coach for Sunday’s series finale. Head coach Tony Vitello served the first of his four-game suspension, while pitching coach Frank Anderson also was suspended due to their ejections in Saturday’s contest.

“It was just a great day for our guys,” Elander said following Tennessee’s win against the Crimson Tide. “A lot of good swings and great energy in the building from the get go, so just really proud of the way our guys competed today.”

Tennessee’s offense produced 15 hits, four home runs and two doubles in the series finale.
