AU baseball returns home for three-game series

AUBURN, Ala. – Two of the three unbeaten teams in the Southeastern Conference will battle it out on the field at Plainsman Park this weekend as Auburn (16-5, 3-0 SEC) and No. 14 South Carolina (17-4, 3-0 SEC) open up Auburn's home conference schedule beginning on Friday night at 6:30pm CT. The two teams will play game two of the series at noon on Saturday on CSS and then at 1pm on Sunday.

Auburn is riding a seven-game winning streak, which includes a sweep of Georgia to start the SEC season last weekend in Athens. South Carolina meanwhile has won 11 straight, sweeping Tennessee in Columbia last weekend.

Friday night is All Auburn, All Orange and the first 500 fans into the game will receive a drink hugger from Logan Square Apartments. There will also be post-game fireworks. Sunday is Family Day and ALLKids kids run the bases day. The first 500 fans into Sunday's game will receive team trading card set No. 1 from Longhorn Steakhouse.

Fans are encouraged to arrive to campus earlier than normal on Friday to find a parking space due to the Will Graham Celebration that is taking place in Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum beginning at 6:30pm.

Fans are reminded that Saturday's game is three hours earlier than the originally published time due to television. Those that cannot view CSS can watch the game live online on
