Scenes from Friday's opening game of the NCAA Tournament between Auburn and South Alabam won by the Tigers 13-5.

Tyler Johnstone was part of a six-run third inning in Friday's win. The third inning featured the most runs scored by Auburn in an NCAA Regional game since scoring seven in the sixth inning of a 16-10 loss to Florida State on May 24, 1998 in Tallahassee.

Karl Amonite homered for the third time in his last two games in Friday's win. Auburn's three home runs as a team were its most in a regional game since hitting three against North Carolina State in the 1999 Auburn Regional opener.

Russell Dixon had two hits and three RBI during Friday's victory. The win was Auburn's first win in the month of June since a 10-1 win over Rice on June 1, 1997 at the 1997 College World Series. It's the Tigers' latest win by date since 1967 when they defeated Clemson on June 5 at the NCAA District 3 Regional. Auburn won five postseason games in the month of June in 1967 (June 2, 3, 5, 12, 14).
