SEC Baseball Recap: Week Four

Auburn was swept on the road at Ole Miss to fall into a tie for last place in the Western Division.

Auburn, Ala.--It was a week to forget for Coach Sunny Golloway and the Auburn Tigers as they dropped a mid-week decision to Samford at home before being swept on the road at Ole Miss to fall into a tie for last place in the Western Division through four weeks of league play. One of the top hitting teams in the SEC this season, Auburn hit just .223 (21-139) for the week and scored only seven total runs. Five of those came in one game, an 8-5 loss in 13 innings on Friday night to the Rebels.

Player of the Week: It's becoming old-hat for sophomore Jordan Ebert to have a big week and he did it again for the Tigers last week. Going 7-18 in four games, Ebert is currently hitting .385 for the year with a team-leading 45 hits.

Pitcher of the Week: Senior Dillon Ortman deserved better on Friday night. Even though he didn't get a loss, Ortman pitched well enough for the Tigers to win in opener against Ole Miss. Allowing just two runs on five hits in seven innings, he put his team in a position to get the victory and that's all you can ask from your Friday night starter.

Up Next: Auburn will face a Troy team on Tuesday night that enters at 16-16 overall following a sweep at the hands of No. 1 Louisiana-Lafayette over the weekend. The Tigers will then travel to red-hot Alabama for a three-game series against a Crimson Tide team that has won seven of its last eight games.
