AUBURN – A dominant pitching performance from Chase Allsup and Cam Tilly paired with an eight-run rally in the bottom of the third inning allowed Auburn to snap its three-game losing streak Tuesday.

The Auburn Tigers picked up an 11-1 run-rule victory over the Florida A&M Rattlers in seven innings at home inside Plainsman Park this afternoon.

“Their stuff was absolutely set today,” Auburn head coach Butch Thompson said of Allsup and Tilly. “I know it’s different sometimes on a Tuesday than it is on the weekend, but I think their stuff set will play competitively on the weekend like what we’ve been used to in the past. They were good. That is why they got out there today is to keep trying to find, develop and get your stuff set, and they both accomplished that.”

Allsup got the start for Auburn and picked up his second win of the season after a five-inning effort in which he allowed one run off of two hits while striking eight batters out.

“The biggest thing we’ve been working on in bullpens is balancing the ball on both sides of the plate,” Allsup said. “That’s been a really challenging thing so far, and to be able to come out here and produce like we were wanting is a really big thing.”

Tilly pitched the final two innings and did not allow any base runners while striking out four batters.

The Tigers took control in the bottom of the third inning and never gave it back.

Auburn had two players, Cooper McMurray and Carter Wright, pick up two hits. Cooper Weiss led the Tigers in RBI with three after hitting a three-run double in the bottom of the third inning.

“We were trying to pass it to the next person,” Wright said. “I don’t think anyone was trying to get the big hit. Everybody was just trying to find barrels, and they were falling for us.”

Auburn is now 20-20 on the season and 2-16 in SEC play.

The Tigers return to action this weekend, taking on the LSU Tigers on the road. Game one is Friday at 6:30 p.m. CT, game two is Saturday at 6 p.m. CT, and game three is Sunday at 1 p.m. CT.
