Team Notes

Auburn started the week with a come-from-behind win at UAB Tuesday, marking the team’s first come-from-behind win this season … the Tigers scored four runs in the eighth inning to erase a two-run deficit … Brody Moore hit a two-run single with one out in the frame that proved to be the difference … pitchers Joseph Gonzalez and Hayden Mullins recorded all 27 outs and combined to strike out a season high 15 batters without issuing a walk … the Tigers started the series vs. Little Rock with back-to-back shutouts … in game one, Greenhill, Peyton Glavine and Carson Skipper combined to throw just 106 pitches, 78 of which were strikes … Auburn pitchers didn’t allow an earned run in 22.2 innings from Tuesday until Sunday … the Tigers struck out 47 batters and issued six walks in 36.0 innings during the week … Auburn hit four home runs against Little Rock – Ryan Bliss (3), Miller (4), Steven Williams (3) and Brody Moore (1) – and pushed its season total to 21 through 15 games … the 21 home runs are one more than the 2010 team that set the program record with 131 home runs hit through 15 games … Moore’s home run in the ninth inning Sunday was the first of his Auburn career … he became the 10th Auburn player to hit a home run this season.
