A seven-run rally in the top of the eighth inning allowed Auburn to finish off the sweep in its season series against UAB on Wednesday night at Regions Field in Birmingham.

The Auburn Tigers earned a 10-4 win over the UAB Blazers.

UAB held a 4-3 lead going into the eighth inning, but the Tigers took control in that frame, and that was all it took.

A two-run home run from Bobby Peirce got the seven-run rally started. He also hit an RBI single which scored the last run of the rally as well as the game.

Cooper Weiss led the way for the Tigers at the plate going 3-6 with two RBI. Three Tigers, Cade Belyeu, Cooper McMurray and Peirce, each had two hits.

Christian Herberholz got the start for Auburn and did not have his best performance. He allowed four runs off of five hits in only 2.2 innings of work. He also walked three batters while earning three strikeouts.

Auburn's bullpen, however, made an impact on the game. Parker Carlson, Alex Petrovic, Zach Crotchfelt and Hayden Murphy pitched a combined 6.1 innings and allowed no runs and only one hit. These four also combined for nine strikeouts.

Darryl Buggs led the way at the plate for the Blazers going 3-4. Brayton Brown led UAB in RBI with two.

Auburn is now 17-11 on the season and 1-8 in SEC play.

The Tigers return to action this weekend when they host the No. 4 Tennessee Volunteers at Plainsman Park. First pitch is set for 6 p.m. CT on Friday, 3:30 p.m. CT on Saturday and 1 p.m. CT on Sunday.
