No. 18 Auburn loses series to Kentucky to close out Regular season.

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."

Auburn loses Up and Down Series versus Ole Miss.

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.
