Auburn Regional Sorta Live IV
The only thing I've wiffed on so far has been the weather problems and judging by the clouds, I'm not far off of that.
Somebody get the live chicken ...
AUBURN v. CLEMSON
AU Top 1: Your Auburn Tigers have kept the offense going. RBI double from Fletcher and an RBI single from Morris gives Auburn a quick lead and a lot of momentum. AU 2, CU 0
CU Btm 1: One hit, but no danger.
AU Top 2: A hit that nearly decapitated poor ol' Lamb, but no runs.
CU Btm 2: Another hit. Still no real harm.
AU Top 3: A double from Mummey goes unused. Still, Auburn continues to hit the ball hard.
CU Btm 3: Sorry for the delay. Tech difficulties. Anyway, apparently Under Armour doesn't have a sunglass line and that has cost Auburn. Fletcher lost one in the sun in left and Clemson got a run out of it. Fradejas almost misplayed one in right, but I don't know what the issue was there -- Dramamine, maybe. Anyway, new score: AU 2, CU 1
AU Top 4: Couple of threats but nothing to show for it ... except for a new Clemson pitcher. You got that going for you, which is nice ... I guess.
CU Btm 4: Nothing much.
AU Top 5: Fletch F. Fletch has left the yard with a two-run DOOOOOOONNNNNGGGG. AU added another run on top of that and I've made early dinner reservations at Provinos for tomorrow night. New score: AU 5, CU 1
CU Btm 5: Uh, yeah, might've spoke a bit soon there. OK, no might about it. The visiting Tigers have bounced back to score SEVEN runs in their half of the fifth. Everybody in the lineup doubled at least twice in the inning. New score: CU 8, AU 5
AU Top 6: There's a sign that AU will not be going quietly. Mr. Fradejas, who would never make it in Arizona with a name like that, is doing just dandy here, thank you. He DONGED one over the big, green wall. New score: CU 8, AU 6
CU Btm 6: Nothing much to report.
AU Top 7: Just think of me as Bobby Boucher's girlfriend. Your Tigers get two runs in odd fashion -- walked one in and an infield single for the other. New score: AU 8, CU 8
CU Btm 7: Back they come. A walk, a sacrifice and a two-out double puts Clemson back on top. Score: CU 9, AU 8
AU Top 8: There was a chance there. Had a runner at first and then at second for Morris and Caldwell. But Mighty Casey popped out and Caldwell struck out. One shot left.
CU Btm 8: Nothing but one loud out.
AU Top 9: Crede Simpson drinks free tonight. Simpson's three-run, pinch-hit home run with two outs allows Auburn to see another half-inning and possibly another day. New score: AU 11, CU 9
CU Btm 9: Tying run left at third. See ya tomorrow.
Final Score: AU 11, CU 10
