Auburn Baseball Faces Uphill Climb In Hoover

2

If this morning's 7-1 loss to Alabama wasn't bad enough, the news got worse this afternoon when Ole Miss knocked off South Carolina 3-0, pushing the Gamecocks into the losers bracket against Auburn tomorrow morning at 9:30 a.m. CT. The showdown between the second and third best records in the SEC will not be an easy one for Auburn. Like the Tigers, South Carolina held back their ace, All-SEC pitcher Blake Cooper for tomorrow's game. Cooper enters the contest 10-1 with a 3.08 ERA. Auburn will counter with second team All-SEC pitcher Grant Dayton, who is 8-2 with a 4.61 ERA.
