Auburn baseball update
The first weekend win clinched a spot in the Southeastern Conference tournament ... Auburn's first in six seasons.
The second weekend win pushed John Pawlowski's team to the top of the Western Division standings. Why is the program thriving these days? It's pretty simple.
Auburn's offense is sick sick sick.
They're not just leading the league in hitting ... they're way ahead. They hit for average, they hit for power, they demonstrate patience at the plate. They do a little bit of everything.
Pitching? It's league average. That's enough with an offense like this one.
Defense? It's a little below average. See above.
Auburn (35-17, 17-10) plays at Ole Miss (36-17, 16-11) this weekend, which likely will settle the Western Division race.
