Auburn High Travels to Face Area Foe Central on Thursday Afternoon

By | Auburn High News | No Comments

 

Auburn High will be traveling to Phenix City this afternoon to face Central in a doubleheader in area play. On Wednesday afternoon, Auburn came out victorious over the Red Devils by a 2-1 final score to take the 1-0 advantage in the three game set. Auburn Senior Drew Jennings pitched a complete game on Wednesday, giving up just three hits, one run, and punching out five. In a tie game with two outs in the fourth, Senior Clayton Phillips brought home the go-ahead run from third base which ultimately ended up being the difference in the 2-1 victory.

 

If the Tigers are able to take game two in Phenix City, it will require just one win against the other area rival Smiths Station to guarantee a spot in the 2018 AHSAA 7A Playoffs. After game two, they will go into a tiebreaker game to help settle any ties that may come up in area play to decide playoff seeding. Scott Bagwell and Riley Hubbard will have coverage of the doubleheader live from Phenix City, Alabama beginning at 4:30. Both games will also be streaming online at espnau.com and on the ESPN 106.7 app.

 

Auburn High Baseball Opens Area Play Wednesday Afternoon Against Central

By | Auburn High News | No Comments

The most important part of the 2018 regular season is here for Auburn High Baseball- area play. Auburn High’s area is made up of Auburn High, Central-Phenix City, and Smiths Station High. The Tigers will play a three game set against each team, starting with Central-Phenix City. The Red Devils currently hold an impressive 19-9 record (Auburn holds a 19-4 record) and lost in the first round of the AHSAA Baseball Playoff last season to Theodore. Auburn and Central will play one game in Auburn on Wednesday followed by a double header on Thursday in Phenix City. The Tigers will then go to Smiths Station for one game on April 18, then play a double header against the Panthers at home on April 19.

 

Winning games against area opponents is key because the top two teams in each division make it into the 2018 7A Baseball Playoffs, and it all starts Wednesday on the campus of Auburn High School. Scott Bagwell and Riley Hubbard will have the coverage of the game beginning at 5:00 on ESPN 106.7, espnau.com, and on the ESPN 106.7 app. Bagwell and Hubbard will also have coverage of games two and three of the series from Phenix City on Thursday beginning at 4:30. Both of those games will also be streaming online at espnau.com and on the ESPN 106.7 app.
