TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Ross Wilson hit a seventh-inning home run to lead Alabama to a 4-3 comeback win over Mississippi State.

Alabama (22-19, 8-10 Southeastern Conference) took advantage of a two-out walk to win yesterday's series finale in the seventh inning.

The Bulldogs (15-23, 4-14 SEC) scored all three runs in the first two innings to take a 3-0 lead.

Wilson was the Crimson Tide's leading hitter, going 4-for-9 (.444) with three home runs and five RBI. He also scored five runs in the three-game series.

Austin Graham (3-1), who got out of jam in the seventh inning on just three pitches out of the bullpen, pitched the final three innings for the win. He allowed two hits and struck out three MSU hitters.

MSU starter Justin Pigott held the Tide to two runs and four hits through 5 2/3 innings. He added three walks and three strikeouts. He left the game in the sixth inning after a two-out error and walk.

In Saturday's doubleheader, Alabama won 21-7, then lost 6-4.
