Baseball makes a statement with Sunday win
The Tigers beat LSU 6-5 on Sunday with a squeeze play, securing the first home series win against the Bayou Bengals since 1998.
Justin Fradejas was asked to make the key bunt, which bounced toward LSU's first baseman. The throw home was a bit off and allowed Casey McElroy to slide home safely under the tag.
``Before the pitch, Coach P told me that we were going to safety squeeze and I was just thinking about getting a bunt down in a good spot so that Casey could score,” Fradejas said. “This is a huge win for us. They are the defending national champion."
Auburn now is 22-11 overall and 7-5 in Southeastern Conference play. It plays at Vanderbilt next weekend.
