Recap 2/24 Lipscomb
Good Guys 17. Other Guys 4.
Hard to dissect a game like this. You won't know if Auburn was this good, or if Lipscomb was just that bad. I think it's about 60/40 either way. However, seeing how Lipscomb hit at least 8 Auburn batters, it might be more heavily leaning on the ineptitude of the Bisons.
Dexter Price had an impressive debut for the Tigers. Going 6 strong innings and 90 pitches deep. Final line: 6ip/5h/2er/4k/1bb.
Having such a strong debut allowed Auburn to rest its bullpen heading into this weekend's matchup against FSU. Auburn only used 3 pitchers then entire day. Price, Rus Harper, and Zach Blatt (also making his Auburn debut).
Blatt's debut wasn't as strong. Coming in the top of 9th, he got tagged a bit. Giving up 3 hits and 2 ERs.
Offensively the Tiger's bats came alive (probably letting out a bit of frustration). Ben Jones was 4-4 with a HR and 5 RBIs. Oh, and Tony Caldwell hit two HRs.
Also of note, Hunter Morris missed today's game. He was resting a sore back. Here are the AuburnTigers.com; AuburnSports.com; recaps.
