Finishing a rain-suspended game on Wednesday, the Auburn Tigers fell on the wrong side of the coin. The Tigers lost to the Louisville Cardinals 5-3, sending them out of the College World Series.
The game was tied 1-1 after the first two innings, and Louisville then gobbled the lead up in the 4th. They scored the runs off a bases loaded walk drawn by Justin Lavey and then a fielding error gave way to three runners coming in to score.
Auburn was able to cut into the deficit in the bottom of the 7th. This came after a double off the bat of Conor Davis, which scored Ryan Bliss. Louisville, however, wasn’t through. Drew Campbell knocked in a run off an RBI single in the ensuing stanza to push the lead up to 5-2.
Auburn was able to add one more run in the game, a homer off the bat of the aforementioned Davis. But it was all done and dusted soon after that.
So ends a rather successful season for the Auburn Tigers, who played their way all the way into Omaha and gave a very competitive effort despite falling early on.
