SEC Baseball Tournament 2015: Thursday Schedule and Bracket Predictions

Published by on May 21, 2015

If the first two days are any indication, Thursday's slate of games at the 2015 SEC tournament should be worthy of your time and attention.

Five of the seven games, including all four Wednesday, were decided by a single run. We nearly had a colossal upset when Auburn came within a run of knocking off top-seeded LSU. We saw second-seeded Vanderbilt force extra innings after being down to its last out and then win on a walk-off home run. It's been a wild ride for a conference that's justifiably considered the best in the land.

Now, believe it or not, the real fun begins. Thursday begins elimination play in Hoover, where the four teams that came up just short in the second round will attempt to save their tournament livelihood.

Seventh-seeded Missouri and 11th-seeded Alabama will get things underway bright and early. The Tigers were left shell-shocked in their 7-6 loss to Vanderbilt. After building a 6-2 lead thanks to a four-run fifth inning, Missouri's pitching staff slowly bled runs to allow the Commodores back in.
