SEC Baseball Week 2 Recap

Auburn won three out of four games for the week, including a series win over the #8 LSU Tigers.

Auburn, Ala.-It was another big week for the Auburn Tigers on the baseball diamond as a single win over South Alabama and a series win over #8 LSU makes it five wins in six games for Coach John Pawlowski's club. Currently second in the SEC's Western Division behind Arkansas, Auburn will stay in the West this weekend when the Tigers host Mississippi State at Plainsman Park.

Offensive Player of the Week: Third baseman Zach Alvord had a big week for the Tigers as he was 7-14 with four RBI and two runs scored. Clutch in the series win over LSU, Alvord has settled in nicely to his role at the bottom of the order. Ryan Tella also had another good week as the sophomore was 7-16 with three runs scored and four RBI. Included in that was his first career home run on Sunday.

Pitcher of the Week: This is the easy one as senior Jon Luke Jacobs continues to dominate during the midweek games. This time it was against South Alabama as the senior didn't allow a run and struck out 11 in eight and one/third innings on Tuesday night. Jacobs is now 4-0 on the season with an ERA of just 0.96.

On Deck:

Auburn will travel to face the Samford Bulldogs on the road Tuesday night. Samford just completed a sweep of Wofford on the road over the weekend. Mississippi State comes to Auburn for the weekend after dropping two of three at home to Arkansas.
