Auburn Softball Visits Samford University
It was a beautiful St. Patrick's Day eve at Samford University for a softball game. The Auburn Tigers made a stop at Samford tonight to play a game on their way to Starkville for a weekend series with Mississippi State. The stadium was filled to capacity and there were a lot of people wearing the orange and blue.
Auburn won the game 18-1 after 5 innings and Rachel Walters pitched the first no hitter in her career. Jade Rhodes had another great game going 2 for 2 with a grand slam home run and 5 RBIs.
Kasey Cooper was 2 for 2 and hit a two run homer with 4 RBIs and Tiffany Howard had three hits and two RBIs.
It was a good tune up game prior to the upcoming weekend series with Mississippi State and Clint Myers was able to get all of the back up players into the game.
After the game the Auburn girls and Clint Myers signed autographs and visited with the fans. As I have said before, Coach Myers and his coaching staff has done a remarkable job with this Auburn team and he has recruited well for the future.
My compliments to the Samford fans and the student representatives for their hospitality.
This Auburn team will be fun to watch this season while they for another visit to the College World Series.
