Auburn's bats have been uncharacteristically cold so far in the NCAA Auburn Regional, but the Tigers have still managed to come out the winner of the Winner's Bracket. The Tigers go into Sunday's Regional Final only needing one win to advance to the NCAA Super Regional. It would take two straight losses to knock the Tigers out. Auburn has only lost two consecutive games once this season: to Alabama a month ago.
Auburn will face South Alabama in the Regional Final. The Jaguars opened the tournament with an 11-1 defeat of Tennessee Chattanooga in Game 1. They lost to Auburn 1-0 in Game 3, but rallied back to defeat Tennessee Tech 9-3 in Game 5.
Auburn started the tournament with a 4-1 win over Tennessee State Friday night. They followed it with a pitcher's duel against South Alabama in Game 3 of the tournament for a 1-0 victory, today.
Game 6 of the series starts at noon on Sunday. It will be available to watch on ESPN3 or the WatchESPN app. You can follow along on the radio at AuburnTigers.com. You can also follow along with all of the details on the NCAA Auburn Regional site. If necessary, Game 7 will begin at approximately 2:30pm immediately following Game 6. Hopefully the Tigers take care of business in Game 6 and move on to the Super Regional unblemished in Region play.
