The Auburn Women's golf team started their chase for a national championship yesterday at the par 72, 6,384-yard Grayhawk Golf Course in Scottsdale. ("yo, that's some hardcore hood." - Robin Williams in the movie RV)

"We were hoping to take advantage of the early morning tee time, but that was not to be," head coach Melissa Luellen said. "The rough is very penalizing on this course and we were in it far too often. Thankfully, we have many more holes to go to climb the leaderboard."

 In a must-win situation. 

On the road in the toughest conference. 

Playing our best baseball of the season, the Auburn Tigers took their show on the road to Missouri and dominated the first game of the series. 

Building upon 6 shut-out innings and an 8-0 lead, Auburn exploded in the 8th inning adding 6 more runs. Winning the game 15-6.

"Nobody has seen the ball as good as Rankin Woley has the last three weeks, and Ryan Bliss is consistent as all get out. Kason Howell pokes his head out tonight and hits two home runs on breaking balls with two strikes," head coach Butch Thompson said.- From the AUfficial website.

.’s 15 runs Thursday are the most runs the Tigers have scored in an SEC series opener since they won 19-5 at Alabama on April 20, 2018. #WarEagle

Our Tigers must win the series and hope that Texas Aggies baseball doesn't win the series against LSU in order to advance to the final spot in the SEC Baseball tournament.

Brief Recap of the Final SEC Homestand.

A crucial homestand against the Texas Aggies went about as well as we could hope.

Auburn 21-25 & 7-19 in SEC play, won the first game in what can best be described as a dismal SEC campaign with its bullpen in the final 4 innings. A theme that has been sorely missing.

Game 2 saw the Tigers jumped out to an early lead only to see it disappear. Auburn hit 6 home runs and only committed 2 errors but the Aggies clawed their way to the win by the score of 11-9.

The final SEC homestand was won on the 3rd day with Auburn scoring 3 runs in each of the first 2 innings. The Tigers then added another in the 4th and also in the 8th innings. Winning the game 8-5 and claiming the series.
