No. 1 Tennessee (39-4, 18-2 SEC) lost to No. 21 Auburn (31-13, 12-8 SEC), 8-6, Saturday at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.

Tennessee was one out away from winning game No. 2. The game was then tied 5-5 in the ninth inning when Bobby Peirce hit a three-run home run for Auburn.

Peirce flipped his bat after hitting the three-run home run. His bat rolled to Tennessee’s dugout. Vols’ head coach Tony Vitello picked up Peirce’s bat and tossed it in the direction of Auburn’s dugout.
