Auburn’s SEC Tournament Run Ends Early
Auburn opened and closed its 2013 SEC Championship tournament run on a blistering afternoon in Hoover, Alabama by falling 6-3 to the Crimson Tide. Auburn started out strong plating 3 runs and chasing Alabama’s starter early in the ball game. However, Alabama chipped away at the lead until finally tying the game in a climactic 6th inning that saw Alabama send 7 men to the plate and score only 1 run. The death blow came in the bottom of the 8th when Alabama’s offense came alive and Auburn’s defense wilted in the heat. The Crimson Tide took a swift 6-3 advantage and never looked back. Auburn quietly exited 1-2-3 in the 9th.
Once again, Auburn baseball is back to square one and looking for answers. One has to wonder what this means for the future of John Pawlowski and the program overall going forward.
