Even after rolling out to a 3-0 lead right out of the gates, it wasn't enough for the University of Southern Mississippi baseball team, who lost their third straight game in a 6-5 loss at South Alabama.
Pitcher A.J. Glasshof (0-2) took the loss for the Golden Eagles, who've lost six games since opening up with a three-game sweep of SEC opponent Missouri. After surrendering four runs in the bottom of the first, Southern Miss tied things up at 4 in the top of the second, but watched as South Alabama put two more scores up in the bottom of the second to take a 6-4 lead.
The Eagles managed only one more run for the game that came in the fourth inning. Southern Miss returns home on Friday to start a three-game series with Louisiana-Lafayette at Pete Taylor Park.
