Auburn baseball took its second series sweep of the season with two blowout wins over Alabama A&M in an instate collision that Fly War Eagle can only describe as ludicrously lopsided.

Following a walk-off win in the bottom of the 10th inning on Sunday against the Presbyterian Blue Hose, the Tigers made things far less dramatic against the Bulldogs from Huntsville.

Auburn baseball-Alabama A&M game #1: Mercy rule ends it early

The Bulldogs threatened in the opening frame against Trace Bright, driving home two early runs against the six-foot-four right-hander from Montgomery.

All it took was a Judd Ware blast to right field and a Bryson Ware two-run shot two batters later to take the lead…and Alabama A&M never got it back. Seven more runs poured in to punctuate a first-inning that saw Auburn almost run through the lineup twice.

Bright settled in, retiring the last 10 batters he faced (per, earning the win in four innings pitched.

By the seventh inning, the Tigers had extended the lead to 16, and the game was called in the middle of the seventh due to the Bulldogs being down by more than 15 runs.

Final score: 18-2 Auburn.

Auburn baseball-Alabama A&M game #2: SEC records fall in historic win

Game 2 of the Alabama A&M-Auburn baseball series was the most thorough intercollegiate athletics display of dominance I have seen with my own two eyes in person. With the Bulldogs mustering up just three hits the entire game, first-year manager Elliot Jones likely regretted his decision to have no mercy rule against Auburn in the series finale.

Butch Thompson’s Tigers got production from everyone in the starting lineup, with each and every starter crossing home plate for a run. Brody Moore was the brightest star of an afternoon filled with them in the Auburn offense (seven RBI’s) but it was Tyler Miller who recorded the team’s only home run in the 33-run outburst.

Credit the pitching staff for giving up just three hits in the 33-0 rout that turned out to be a record-breaking performance for the program:

War Eagle, and congratulations to the 21st-ranked Auburn baseball team on making history Wednesday afternoon.
