AUBURN, Ala. — After dropping a high-scoring Game 2 on Saturday afternoon, Auburn softball looks to bounce back Sunday afternoon in a series finale against SEC West rival Ole Miss.
The No. 5 Tigers gave up 10 runs Saturday to a strong No. 21 Ole Miss offense in a series-tying matchup. But with Kaylee Carlson back in the circle, Auburn feels like it can repeat its Game 1 win from Friday night — a 3-1 win capped by nine straight outs.
Carlson could pick up her 20th win of the season with a win this afternoon. Ole Miss will counter with starter Kaitlin Lee, who had Auburn’s hitters off-balance early in Friday’s matchup.
The Tigers changed up their lineup again Sunday after the Game 2 loss, with true freshman KK Crocker joining the fold at second base. Here’s the starting lineup from Clint Myers:
- C Carlee Wallace
- 3B Kasey Cooper
- SS Haley Fagan
- RF Alyssa Rivera
- 1B Kendall Veach
- LF Carmyn Greenwood
- DP Courtney Shea
- 2B KK Crocker
- CF Victoria Draper
