Auburn Baseball: Blue team wins Fall World Series Game 3 at Plainsmen Park

Auburn Baseball concluded its intrasquad Fall World Series matchup at Plainsmen Park Sunday, with the Blue team topping Orange in Game 3.

Nothing like a little November baseball, eh? Auburn baseball concluded its annual Fall World Series intrasquad matchup with the Blue team topping the Orange team in the deciding Game 3 yesterday.

For the Blue team, it was a chance to extend the series, while the Orange team was looking to close the door on the preseason exhibition series:

Tyler Mills and Brayton Brown provided the fireworks with their bats, each sending a two-run home run blast over the Plainsmen Park fence. Mill got the action going with a blast in the first inning to open up the scoring 2-0. After Orange cut the deficit in half in the top of the second, Brown did his damage at the bottom of the frame.

The pair–along with Kade Snell–received a shoutout from Head Coach Butch Thompson on Twitter afterward:

The Auburn Baseball Tigers finished the pandemic-shortened 2020 season with a 13-5 record–sporting a series sweep by the hands of the #12th ranked UCF Knights as their lone black marks on an otherwise impressive early schedule.

While conference play never had a chance to kick in this past year, the Tigers have historically struggled to keep up with the LSU’s, Florida’s, and Vanderbilt’s of the schedule. Auburn baseball hasn’t won a championship since 1998, but if 2021 is going to be the year things change, yesterday’s exhibition was one of the laid bricks to a championship foundation.
