Auburn put together its most complete game of the season.

Auburn's offense had one of its best performances of the season, and Michael O'Neal was solid on the mound in a 10-0 over Coppin State Tuesday night at Plainsman Park.

The Tigers (14-7) scored in every inning, put up a season-best 16 hits and didn't commit an error in the field. It was likely their best all-around performance of the year, although against the 299th-best team in America, that might not be saying a lot. Still, all Auburn can do is take care of business, and that's exactly what it did.

Sunny Golloway's team never had a huge inning, but it put constant pressure on the Eagles (4-10). The Tigers scored one run in the first, third, fourth, fifth, seventh and eighth innings, and two runs in the second and sixth. Jordan Ebert and Damek Tomscha continued their hot hitting, both going 2-for-3 at the plate. Each scored a run, and Ebert drove in three. Conner Short was 3-for-5 with a run scored, and Damon Haecker was 1-for-2 with a double, one run and three RBI. Ryan Tella went 2-for-5 with two RBI. Daniel Robert was 1-for-4 with a run and an RBI triple.

Sam Gillikin returned from injury and made his first start of the season in right field. Gillikan was 1-for-1 with a single and a walk before being lifted for a pinch-runner in the third.

O'Neal (1-2) was sparkling on the mound, going six innings and allowing two hits and three walks while striking out one. Trey Wingenter struck out three and gave up one hit in two innings, and Rocky McCord pitched the ninth, giving up a walk and striking out the side.

Yahya Muhammad (0-4) took the loss for Coppin State. Muhammad allowed six runs on 12 hits and four walks in five innings. He struck out one.

The same two teams will meet again Wednesday afternoon at Plainsman Park. First pitch is scheduled for 3 p.m. CT, and freshman righty Kevin Davis will make his second start of the year for the Tigers.

Coppin State 0 (4-10)
