2 Out of 3 Ain’t Bad
The good news? Auburn won the resumed game of Friday night’s game 3-1 to take the season series against Alabama.
The bad news? Auburn’s probably needed a sweep in order to keep whatever slim postseason hopes they had alive. That hope went away following Alabama’s 7 inning 13-3 win in game three.
Game two was all about pitching and was all about Sean Ray. He let Alabama baffled, not allowing a run in 5 and 1/3 innings. He only allowed 2 hits and 2 walks. That’s it.
Game Three. That was all Alabama. After holding the Alabama bats in check for the first two games, Auburn couldn’t keep them asleep any longer. The Tide broke out and rocked Auburn for 13 runs, including 3 home runs.
Sure, it wasn’t how Auburn would have liked to end the series but, well, I’ll let Meat Loaf take it from here:
So that, more than likely, closes the books on another Auburn season. War Eagle Boys. You kept fighting until the end. Hopefully, the RPI will be enough to get a tournament invite.
