Recommended Posts

Jonah Todd leads off the game with a liner into the gap in left center and he gets to 2nd.  failed sacrifice opportunity.   Conor Davis comes up and rips one hard to left and its off the wall for a double and Todd scores.  Auburn leads 1-0.  Casey Mize on the mound tonight.

Luke Jarvis sends one high and deep to left and its GONE.  Auburn leads 2-0 in the top of the 2nd.

OK....3 up and 3 down...thanks to a nice DP started by Anthony. Looks like the UT base runner might have over-slid the bag and got called with an interference ....batter first called safe and then the call was reversed for the DP.  Next batter grounded to Ingraham at first....and it was a pretty quick inning. 

on to the top of the 5th....

Meanwhile, AU in some middle depth fly ball mode at the moment after getting the two runs.

 

And another fly to deep center ends the inning....

Well, we are in the top of the 7th with AU still in the lead....a fast moving game....not much over 90 minutes thus far and Mize still with a modest pitch count....and barring trouble is in position to go the distance.

 

Meanwhile, Jarvis legs out a triple on a ball into the LF corner...nice hustle...

NIce...    Haecker with sac fly to LF and lead goes to 3-0.  Jarvis not that fast but pushing hard and the throw from left was off line.....so a little more cushion for Mize

Well..big surprise to me....Mize comes out and Lipscomb in for relief........meanwhile, Mize with 82 pitches....not a hard outing for him....looked VERY good.

CL gets a K and then gives up a bloop single that fell in front of the CF.    CL and / or someone else needs to hold this game for 3 innings

Looks like HBP but then called a  ball...apparently the batter did not make enough effort to  avoid the ball....so remains at bat.... 

And a DP on the next pitch to get out of the inning....nicely done'

BT must have a lot of faith in the pen though I'm not sure why.   Lipscomb is usually good for an inning or so before they figure out ihs sliders ....but afterward it's anybody's guess. .

Earlier in the game CBT said they were hoping to get him a light work load cause he had a short week and they've rode him 100+ the last two weeks.

Top of the 9th and another pop fly to the outfield.....UT pitcher looking pretty good tonight but JMO, the AU batters are making it easy for him now....

Out #2 with a K

Anthony at bat to keep the inning alive...and delivers with a double to the RF wall...and looks like he has a cramp or hamstring problem....went right down on what might have been a triple.

But he's walking it off which is very good news..

Jarvis flies to center to end the inning and now it's up to CL to hold the lead.  Last chance for the Vols

Lipscomb back to close it out.....starts with a 4 pitch walk.....damn....no point in that.    UT coming around for it's second look at CL which does not always work out well.

Single to CF who mishandles the ball and runners are now on 2nd and 3rd with nobody out....

BT is out to the mound and Mitchell getting loose.

BT leaves him in to  hold the lead.

AU up 3-1 with one out.

And another hit into the RF gap to score run #2 and tying runner on first.  Slider no longer fooling anyone in their second time against CL.

Mitchell comes in to get out of the trouble.

A DP would be nice ...but a K is a good back up plan..
