Auburn vs. North Alabama: How to watch Auburn’s mid-week clash
Auburn baseball will host the North Alabama Lions Tuesday in Plainsman Park, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.
Auburn (16-7-1, 2-4 SEC) is looking to win their second game this season against the Lions (5-17, 0-6 ASUN). The teams first met on Feb. 21 with the Tigers cruising to a 13-1 win in seven innings.
The Tigers are coming off a 2-1 series win over the Georgia Bulldogs this past weekend but are looking to put an ugly 24-7 loss in game three behind them.
“We have another critical week,” head coach Butch Thompson said. “Now that it’s been 48 hours, we must look ahead and figure out the strategies to help us win another week that’s in front of us.”
