The Leadoff Hitter, Auburn vs. South Carolina: Game times, probable starters, statistics and more

New, 1 comment

The Gamecocks and Tigers have both been struggling lately, but it will be a big test for Sunny Golloway's team.

Auburn is reeling after dropping three straight SEC series, but there's no rest for the weary. The Tigers will try to get back on track against South Carolina, one of the favorites to win the conference title.

Last weekend

Auburn 2, Alabama 1

Dillon Ortman was dominant for seven innings, and Keegan Thompson closed the door in a surprise relief appearance.

Alabama 4, Auburn 1

Crimson Tide pitcher Spencer Turnbull entered the game with an ERA over 4.00, but the Tigers couldn't get anything done on offense.

Alabama 4, Auburn 3

Auburn compiled 12 hits, but three errors, plus poor base-running and execution with runners on base, doomed the Tigers.

Midweek

Samford 7, Auburn 6

Auburn rallied from a 6-0 deficit, but it wasn't enough to keep Samford from sweeping the season series.

No. 8 South Carolina at No. 55 Auburn
