Auburn hits the road again this weekend, traveling to Fayetteville for a three-game series against Arkansas. The Tigers have lost four consecutive SEC series, and it won't get any easier this weekend. The Razorbacks are coming off a series win over highly touted Vanderbilt. Auburn desperately needs to take at least two of three in order to keep postseason hopes alive.
Auburn 4, South Carolina 2
The Tigers scored in just one inning, but a four-run first, powered by a Blake Austin three-run homer, was enough as Dillon Ortman pitched a complete-game gem.
South Carolina 3, Auburn 2
Auburn took a 2-1 lead into the ninth thanks to eight fantastic innings from Keegan Thompson, but Jay Wade couldn't hold the lead. Wade gave up a game-tying double, and the Trey Cochran-Gill allowed the go-ahead RBI single.
South Carolina 4, Auburn 3
Trey Wingenter allowed two runs and recorded only one out in the first, but Michael O'Neal was solid in relief, giving up one run in 5 1/3 innings. Once again, the Tigers' bats couldn't match the pitching.
Auburn 6, South Alabama 1
The Tigers were without a run going into the bottom of the fifth, but they finally got it going to avoid a disastrous midweek loss.
