Only 19 times since 1949 has Auburn started the season by winning five straight games. Butch Thompson’s ball club looks to continue those efforts this weekend when it hosts Bryant University at Plainsman Park.
In five victories so far, Auburn’s pitching staff has combined for a 0.80 ERA (No. 4 in the country) and has landed No. 5 nationally in runs scored (43). The Tigers have been keeping things interesting this week, too, with the last two wins coming in one-run games.
The Bulldogs have not been as successful through their first three games. Bryant has fallen to Arizona in Tucson.
