Auburn allowed No. 2 Vanderbilt to jump out to a 7-1 lead after the top of the fourth and then could not make up the difference in an 8-6 loss on Sunday afternoon at Plainsman Park. The loss dropped Auburn to 13-6, 0-3 SEC while Vanderbilt improved to 19-2, 3-0 SEC.
Trailing 7-1 going to the bottom of the fourth, Auburn started a comeback with a two-run bottom of the fourth. Garrett Cooper singled and scored on a Damek Tomscha double for the first run of the inning and then Tomscha scored on a wild pitch to make it 7-3.
Two innings later Auburn narrowed the gap again as Jackson Burgreen singled in Patrick Savage and Blake Austin to slice the margin to 7-5.
Vanderbilt would get a run back on a Rhett Wiseman eighth-inning RBI single only for Auburn to answer on Hunter Kelley's pinch-hit, RBI double in the bottom half of the frame to score Dan Glevenyak to make it 8-6.
Vanderbilt's Jared Miller earned the win out of the bullpen, allowing one run on two hits and a walk while striking out two in 2 1/3 innings.
