South Alabama's Kevin Hill (David Barnes)


Baumann: South Alabama’s Hill To Die For

SAN MARCOS, Texas — “Comforting” is not a word you’d ordinarily use to describe a power pitcher, but South Alabama’s Kevin Hill exuded a contagious sense of calm throughout his 8 1/3 innings of work against Texas State on Friday. On an afternoon where both head coaches pointed out that Hill didn’t have his best stuff, the fifth-year senior from Oklahoma nonetheless dodged trouble for 119 pitches en route to a 7-3 Jaguars win. South Alabama improved to 8-0 in Sun Belt Conference play and will return home with a series win in the matchup of the conference’s first- and second-place teams.
