The end is near for Auburn baseball. Well, the end of the regular season, anyway. Butch Thompson’s Tigers play host to LSU this weekend at Plainsman Park in their final three-game SEC series of the year.
All eight of Auburn’s seniors will be honored during a pregame ceremony on Friday night.
Being at home has provided Auburn with an advantage this season (27-5 at Plainsman Park) and of late with the Tigers enjoying a seven-game home win streak (since April 15).
It’s a significant weekend for Auburn as LSU is currently sitting one game ahead of Auburn in the conference standings.
