Sunday Game Thread: at The Auburn University War Tigers

Auburn woke a sleeping giant in the 4th, and the Dores win 19-4 to tie the series. The Diamond Dores turn to Patrick Reilly in the rubber match.

The Diamond Dores looked listless—resigned to lose yet another SEC series—and then Javier “Cloney Kemp” Vaz went VAS DEFERENS with a leaping catch at the wall to stop a War Tiger charge in the 3rd. Then the worm... well, it turned:

The Dores didn’t stop there, as they plated 10 more—including 6 in the 9th—and evened the series on the back of a 19-4 bludgeoning. In total, they scored 19 runs on 23 hits, of which 10 were 2Bs and 4 were hit over some fencing they’d set up. Every starter recorded at least one hit (except for Carter Young, who, while still slumping at the plate, was more than solid in the field).

Three Stars

1) Javier “Cloney Kemp” Vaz: 2-6 with a 3 run HR in the 4th. Of course, the reason he takes the #1 spot was he provided the catch that started it all.

2) Spencer “Dr.” Jones: 3-4 with 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 BB, 4 R and 3 RBI.

3) Dominick “The Dominator” Keegan: 4-5 with 3 2B, 3 R, and 3 RBI.

Honorable Mention - Jack “The Bulge” Bulger: 5-5 with 2 2B, 2 R, and 2 RBI.

Let’s keep it rolling.
