With the win Auburn pulled to within a game of .500 at 14-15, which matches Georgia State’s record.
The Panthers struck first with 2 runs in the top of the third inning, and that lead held until Auburn broke through with a run in the fourth and 3 runs in the fifth to take a 4-2 lead. Georgia State cut it to 4-3 in the seventh, but the Tigers came right back with 2 runs in the bottom half of the frame to put the game out of reach.
Jordan Ebert and Jonathan Foster each drove in a pair of runs and were the only Auburn batters with multiple hits in the game.
