MOBILE, AL (WVUE) - Southeastern ran into a buzz saw Tuesday night in Mobile, falling 2-1 to 21st ranked South Alabama. It was the Lions' second straight loss after having won 19 of their last 20 games.
The Lions (25-9) picked up a two-out run in the first, but offense was hard to come by the rest of the way off South Alabama (26-8) starting pitcher Randy Bell (2-1).
South Alabama struck for all the runs they would need in the third when second baseman Adam Wolfe ripped a one-out double down the third-base line. After a walk, center fielder Cole Billingsley smacked a two-run double to left. Two runs scored, giving Bell and the Jaguars the lead.
Bell stymied the Southeastern bats the remainder of the game, surrendering just one more hit, a ninth-inning single to Webb Bobo, on his way to a complete game.
Southeastern wraps up its six-game road swing Friday at No. 22-ranked UL Lafayette.
