Auburn baseball vs. Lipscomb: How to watch/stream this weekend’s series at Plainsman Park
Auburn baseball plays Lipscomb this weekend for a three-game series at Plainsman Park, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.
Auburn baseball (6-1-1) looks to continue its recent hot streak this weekend as they welcome Lipscomb (5-3) to Plainsman Park.
Auburn put on an offensive clinic in Wednesday’s midweek action against Florida A&M. An 11-run first inning was enough to allow Auburn to coast to an 18-8 run-rule victory. Cole Foster, Cooper McMurray, and Justin Kirby each had three RBI in the win. Tommy Vail struck out six batters in four innings of work on the mound.
The Tigers are hitting exceptionally well this season as they enter the series with a .342 average. Ike Irish and Bryson Ware have been leading the way as they have 34 hits between them. Justin Kirby has hit six home runs, which is ironically the total of hits he has on the season.
The pitching rotation will see the usual Friday starter as Tanner Bauman gets the nod. However, Christian Herberholz will get the Saturday start for the second weekend in a row while Joseph Gonzalez continues to nurse an injury. Freshman Zach Crotchfelt will get his first weekend start of the season by taking the mound on Sunday.
