After Monday’s 4-0 win over Groton-Dunstable, Auburn Baseball will face Blackstone Valley Tech at Hudson High School with a start time of 4:00pm in the MIAA Central Division 3 Tournament Semi-Final. #1 BVT comes in with a 18-2 record while #4 Auburn is 14-6.
The Rockets were very pumped on Monday and outperformed the Crusaders 11-5 on hits. The pitching efforts of Junior Conor Scully were also a big factor as he struck out 12, walked 1, and allowed 5 hits. Auburn scored 1 in the first, 2 in the second, and 1 in the fifth.
Coach Eric Swedberg summed up the game nicely, “It was nice to get on the board right away, and the third inning was well executed. Everyone contributed.”
The wind was a big factor for Groton-Dunstable as several of Auburn’s soaring hits were misplayed. The home team, however, fielded with their typical confidence. Good luck today!
