Batavia entered the bottom of the ninth with a 5-3 lead, but Auburn came back with two runs of their own. Jordan Szabo prevented the winning run from scoring when he gunned down Auburn's Matt Cooksey, who was attempting to score on a base hit to right.
Szabo and teammate John Hardy both were 3-for-8.
Each team used seven pitchers over the course of the game, with Batavia's Kevin Shepard lasting the longest. The southpaw tossed five scoreless innings, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out six.
The game will resume at 5:05 p.m. on August 14 at Auburn's Falcon Field.
