Maryland Eastern Shore (2/13): Earned the second season-opening start of his career after originally getting the nod as a freshman in 2012 … tossed 6.0 innings and allowed just two hits while walking three and striking out seven on his way to the shutout win … allowed just one batter to advance past second base and retired nine of the final 10 batters he faced … the two hits allowed are the fewest by an Alabama opening day starter since Adam Morgan gave up one against South Alabama in 2010 … his seven punchouts were the most by a UA starter in the opener since Morgan tallied 11 in that same game against the Jaguars. Houston (2/20): Suffered the loss after tossing 6.0 IP and allowing three runs on four total hits … surrendered his first home run of the season – a three-run shot – that would prove the deciding factor in the game … struck out seven Cougars.

Texas A&M (3/21): Suffered the loss even after putting together a quality start … the loss was his first at home in 2015 … went 6.1 innings, allowing a season-low tying two hits and striking out a career-high 11 batters … recorded two separate streaks in which he retired seven straight Aggie hitters. Florida (3/27): Was chased early in his shortest start of the season, going 3.0 innings and allowing four runs (three earned) on a then-season high seven hits … did not play a part in the decision as the Tide would claim a 12-9, 10-inning victory in the series opener.

Auburn (5/8): Did not factor into the decision despite throwing 6.2 innings and allowing just two earned runs … used a season-high 109 pitches and collected eight strikeouts in the effort before being removed in the seventh … Alabama would use back-to-back solo home runs in the top of the ninth to claim the 4-2, series-opening win against the Tigers. Vanderbilt (5/14): Tossed 6.0 IP, allowing just two earned runs on only three hits for the loss … struck out three and walked three … retired 12 consecutive Commodores before walking two and then allowing a two-run double in the sixth that was the difference in the game … was outdueled by Carson Fulmer, who tossed a complete game and allowed one earned run. Missouri (5/21): Worked 7.0 innings of three-run baseball against the Tigers to claim his first win of the season against an SEC opponent and help Alabama advance to the quarterfinal round of the 2015 SEC Tournament … allowed six hits and three walks while punching out four Mizzou hitters.
