No. 20 Auburn baseball falls 5-0 in series finale at Mississippi State

STARKVILLE, Miss. – The No. 20 Auburn baseball team could only muster
four hits off of the Mississippi State pitching staff, falling 5-0 on
Sunday afternoon at Dudy Noble Field. The loss dropped Auburn's record
to 14-10, 2-4 SEC while Mississippi State is now 18-6, 4-2 SEC.

"This was a frustrating weekend," Auburn Head Coach John Pawlowski said.
"We were out-played this weekend. Give Mississippi State credit, they
did a good job. When they got guys in scoring position they came up with
the big hit. We didn't have many chances offensively. We only had one
leadoff guy on base. This is not the start or the weekend we wanted."

Mississippi State, which had 10 hits on the afternoon, all singles, used
five hits and a walk to break open the game in the fifth, scoring four
runs in the inning. Jonathan Ogden (3-for-4, R) led off the inning with
a single and went to second on a sac bunt before Wes Thigpen's (2-for-3,
R, RBI) RBI single made it 1-0. Jaron Shepherd's (1-for-4, R) single put
runners in scoring position as Justin Fradejas couldn't pick the ball up
cleanly, allowing Shepherd to get to second and Thigpen to third. After
a strikeout and a walk loaded the bases, Jarrod Parks (1-for-3, 2 RBI)
singled home two and Cody Freeman (1-for-4, RBI) singled in another to
make it 4-0.

Mississippi State made it 5-0 in the sixth with an unearned run off of
Ethan Wallen as Adam Frazier (0-for-2, R) reached on an error, went to
second on a wild pitch, moved to third on a fielder's choice and scored
as he stole home as part of a double steal attempt, with Auburn failing
to record an out on the play.

Derek Varnadore (3-1) took the loss for Auburn, allowing four runs on
eight hits and a walk in five innings, striking out five.

Daryl Norris (1-0) earned the win in relief, holding Auburn to just two
hits and no walks over the final 5 ½ innings, striking out two.

Dan Gamache finished the game with two hits for Auburn.

Casey McElroy finished the game 0-for-4, snapping his career-best
hitting streak at 18 games.

Auburn returns home for a Tuesday game against in-state foe Troy. First
pitch is scheduled for 6pm at Plainsman Park.
