KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Monday night’s series finale between No. 14 Tennessee and No. 9 Alabama was suspended because of lightning with two outs in the top of the fourth inning and was cancelled about 45 minutes later as a steady rain began to fall. The game will not be rescheduled or made up.
With tonight’s cancelled game not being a complete contest, all SINGLE GAME ticket buyers are eligible for a refund. Fans must return their tickets to the UT Ticket Office by May 12, 2017 to receive a full refund.
Season ticket holders have a discount built into their season ticket cost for cancelled games and therefore, will not be eligible for a refund.
Since the game did not reach the minimum five innings required for an official contest, all stats from the first 3.2 innings of the game are negated.
In the third inning, the Crimson Tide (36-9, 10-7 SEC) scored three runs to take the lead thanks to a pair of RBI doubles from Bailey Hemphill and Chandler Dare.
The Vols took the first two games of the series with a pair of walk-off wins on Saturday and Sunday night and have won 18 straight games.
UP NEXT: The Vols continue their tough stretch of SEC contests with a three-game series at No. 11 LSU starting Friday, April 21 at 7 p.m
