Recap of a Wonderful Weekend for Auburn Athletics

By on April 23rd, 2018 in Baseball, Other Sports, Softball Comment »

Auburn Athletics

For the first time since 1976… Auburn baseball swept Alabama in Tuscaloosa. The Tigers outscored the Tide 44–10 in the series and put an exclamation mark on the weekend with a 20–5 victory—which included an 11-run eighth inning—in the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader. 

Auburn now sits with a .500 record in the conference, which, considering the strength of the SEC, is actually fairly good and only one game back from the top of the division. However, the road gets much tougher beginning this weekend. The Tigers must travel to Gainesville to face the top ranked Florida Gators before coming back home to face Vanderbilt.

The realistic goal for Butch Thompson’s squad would be to get three wins across the next two weekends. That will keep this team in the hunt during the last stretch of the season. 

Equestrian won its second national title in three years… on Saturday, topping Georgia 10–5. It was Auburn’s fifth title in the sport.

The Tigers have won titles in equestrian in 2006, 2011, 2013, 2016 and now, 2018. The last nonequestrian Auburn national title was football in 2010.

Softball quickly turned things around on Saturday… after a disappointing 10-inning loss in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader against Arkansas. Auburn was down 2–0 early in the second game, but rallied back with a two-run home run from catcher Courtney Shea and a single from infielder Kendall Veach that drove in two runs to win the game 4–2. 

Auburn travels to College Station this weekend for a series against No. 9 Texas A&M.
