Auburn splits doubleheader with UGA

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, AL -

The Auburn baseball team could never muster enough offense to make a comeback after falling behind by four runs in the second inning as it fell to Georgia, 7-1, in the second game of a doubleheader. With the doubleheader split, Auburn hits the halfway point of the SEC season 22-14, 5-10 SEC while Georgia is 13-24, 3-12 SEC.

Will Kendall (0-4) surrendered a two-out, three-run home run to Brett DeLoach in the first as Auburn fell behind in the top half of the first.

Auburn answered with a run in the first when Ryan Tella reached on an error and scored on a Garrett Cooper RBI groundout to make it 3-1.

Georgia answered right back off Kendall with two in the second and ultimately knocked him out after he allowed six runs (five earned) off of four hits and two walks in 3 1/3 innings.

Jared Walsh (2-3) earned the win by holding Auburn to two hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings, striking out nine while the rest of the Georgia bullpen combined to hold Auburn to just one hit and a walk over the final 3 1/3.
