Auburn is now 10-3 after taking advantage of five Brown errors to notch an eighth comeback win this season.

Auburn took an early lead and rallied for six runs in the seventh inning to defeat Brown, 9-4, Friday night at Plainsman Park.

With the Tigers trailing 4-3, Jordan Ebert lead the bottom of the seventh off with a home run to take his hitting streak to eleven games, before Dan Glevenyak scored on one of five errors when he hit a fly ball to deep center was misplayed. Three straight walks loaded the bases for Patrick Savage, who cleared the bases with a double and then scored himself on a Blake Austin single.

The Ivy League squad had the lead after fighting back from an early 3-0 hole, when they chased Auburn starter Daniel Koger, who left his fourth start with his fourth no-decision. Koger went five full innings before getting pulled in the sixth when Brown cut into the lead, and then tied the game off reliever Trey Cochran-Gill.

Chase Williamson got coach John Pawlowski's nod to finish the sixth, and Brown took the lead in the top of the seventh just before Auburn's nine-batter half inning sealed a victory for the Tigers. Terrance Dedrick threw the final two frames, allowing just one hit. Williamson's one run allowed in 1 2/3 innings was good enough for the win, improving the sophomore righty to 2-0.

Auburn lead early on thanks in part to Jackson Burgreen's 2-for-5 day with a triple and a stolen base. Austin, Savage and Ebert all were 2-for-4.

The 10-3 Tigers look to take the series Saturday from 1-4 Brown at 3 p.m., with Michael O'Neal (3-0) facing Dave St. Lawrence.
