The bats were there, but the pitching allowed the Aggies to do too much, themselves. Auburn scored 8 or more runs in all three games, but that wasn't enough to steal the series from the visiting #3 team in the nation. Still, Auburn did get one game out of the series, which is impressive considering that A&M only had one loss on the season.
The NCAA Tournament started out well for Auburn, as the Tigers knocked off St. John's in Round 1. Round 2 did not go so well, though. The Tigers came up against the Baylor Bears, a 1 seed, who only had one loss for the entire year. It did not go well, as Baylor ended Auburn's season with an 84-52 victory.
Sure, they finished 4th out of 4 teams in the night session at the SEC Championships, but the Tigers still managed to garner their highest score in team history at the SEC Championship meet.
Mississippi States' pitchers were amazing and really shut down Auburn's powerful offense in the weekend series in Starkville. Auburn's pitchers were just as amazing, though, and the difference in the offenses came through in Auburn's series win. It was quite a series. Friday night's game was the longest game in school history.
Ricardo Louis is willing to switch positions if he needs to in the NFL. It wouldn't shock me if it happens, if only because Auburn has a habit of signing WRs who others think should play DB instead.
