Auburn Wins Eighth Straight
USA TODAY Sports
Ever since I wrote about my concerns regarding midweek baseball games, Auburn has begun to ease those worries. The Tigers went on the road on Tuesday night to face an always dangerous Georgia Tech team and came out on top, 7–4.
Tuesday night’s victory marked Auburn’s eighth consecutive win coming off of its weekend sweep against Florida. The Tigers put 11 hits on the board in last night’s game, six of which were doubles. Christian Camacho was on the mound for the Tigers, and he allowed just one run in 4 1/3 innings. Calvin Coker was credited for the win after getting the last two outs in the fifth inning, and Cole Lipscomb earned his fourth save of the year with a 1-2-3 ninth inning.
Auburn is fortunate to have only allowed four runs, as the Yellow Jackets hit three home runs in the game.
“This was probably the best offensive club we have faced thus far,” Auburn head coach Butch Thompson said. “You never felt like any lead was safe.”
Jonah Todd, Daniel Robert, Conor Davis and Will Holland led Auburn in the hits column with two for each. No home runs for the Tigers last night, but they weren’t needed, as the six doubles of the evening—a season high—were enough to get the win.
Auburn heads to Athens this Fiday to take on a Georgia team that was swept by LSU last weekend. It’s important for the Tigers to further strengthen their SEC record with a very winnable series on hand this weekend.
