Losing the series means that Auburn will be playing Kentucky, again as the fifth seed in the First round of the SEC Tournament in Hoover. The winner of which will play LSU. "I could not stress anymore about trying to play a game up there with so many fans there and being so close to Auburn," head coach Butch Thompson said. "We need to put our best foot forward to win the first game and enter the double elimination portion of the tournament next week."
After losing a series to No. 3 Arkansas, the No. 20 Auburn Tigers (33-16) (13-11 SEC) traveled down to Riddle-Pace Field to gain some momentum against the Troy Trojans (29-18) (13-11 Sun Belt). The Tigers rode a fast start, and electric bats from the whole team to win 11-4.
The Tigers will be looking to carry the seven-game win streak momentum into their toughest challenge yet, the No. 1 team in the nation in Rocky Top.
The Auburn Tigers will go on to play there last midweek game against Alabama State on Wednesday April 27, in Montgomery at 5 p.m. before wrapping up the season with two SEC Series in Georgia, and Tennessee, as the Tigers will look to gain momentum for the SEC Tournament which starts on May 10.
“She has been a workforce, I told her the last couple days I really appreciate what she is doing right now,” said head coach Mickey Dean on Penta reaching the milestone.
“That’s a big one today and I couldn’t be more proud of the pitchers stepping up,” said head coach Butch Thompson.
After beating Alabama State, the No. 17 Auburn Tigers softball team (29-6) (7-5 SEC) stayed home in Jane B. Moore Field to take on the No. 7 Florida Gators (30-6) (7-5 SEC) in what was a heavyweight matchup, that ended in a series win for the Florida Gators who just beat the Tigers 2-1.
Overall, Auburn played a very up and down series against the No. 1 team in the nation, but showed if they do not shoot themselves in the foot with errors and leaving runners on, this Auburn team can play with anyone in the SEC or nation as evidenced by the second game win by the score of 19-5.
