A three-run rally in the top of the fifth inning helped lead the Tigers to victory in Atlanta on Tuesday night.

The Auburn Tigers picked up a 7-2 win over the Georgia Tech Yellowjackets, securing the win in the season series between the two teams.

The Yellowjackets struck first, scoring a run in the bottom of the first and third innings. It was all Auburn for the rest of the night at the plate.

Auburn scored on a sacrifice fly by Cade Belyeu in the top of the fourth inning but took control one inning later.

Eric Guevara and Cooper Weiss hit back-to-back home runs in the bottom of the fifth inning and Caden Green reached on an error that allowed Chris Stanfield to score.

Belyeu added some padding to Auburn's lead in the top of the ninth inning by hitting a three-run shot over the wall in right field.

The Tigers had a team-wide effort at the plate in this game. They recorded seven hits, each one belonged to a different player.

Auburn also had a by-committee effort on the mound as five pitchers got in the game.

Joseph Gonzalez got the start but lasted two innings. Ben Schorr picked up the win after a two-inning effort in which he allowed one hit and walked two batters. Christian Herberholz earned the save for a two-inning outing in which he allowed one hit and one walk but struck two batters out.

Auburn is now 23-24 on the season and 4-20 in SEC Play.

The Tigers return to action this weekend for a road series with the Missouri Tigers. Game one is set for Friday at 6 p.m. CT, game two is set for Saturday at 3 p.m. CT and game three is set for Sunday at 1 p.m. CT.

Each game will be broadcast on SEC Network+. The Auburn Sports Network broadcast for each game can be heard locally on Wings 94.3 FM or streamed anywhere on the Auburn Athletics app.
