The Auburn Baseball Team has broken into the Top 25 teams in the country for the first time this season. Four out of five national polls including Baseball America have the Tigers ranked. The No.21 ranking comes on the heels of the Tigers’ second SEC series victory in the last week and a half.
Auburn took two of three games against Texas A&M and two against No.18 Tennessee to garner the national recognition. The Tigers are now 17-8; 4-2 in the SEC and have won 11 of their last 13 games. Auburn has done it on strong pitching and a revived offense that has outscored opponents in four of the last five games 30-6.
The Tigers will be back in action tonight in a home game against Kennesaw State before playing their third SEC series of the season Thursday when they take on Missouri at Plainsman Park in an ESPNU 6:30 game. First pitch for tonight’s game will be at 6 p.m. CT.
Congratulations to our Tigers and keep it going!
The No. 21 Tigers beat Kennesaw State 10-5, picking up their 12th win out of the last 14 games and improved to 18-8 heading into their nationally televised game with SEC foe Missouri on Thursday.
