Auburn’s starter is likely to be junior right-hander Mason Barnett. He’s 3-2 with a 3.98 ERA and 1.46 WHIP. The Tigers have won three of his last four starts.
Sick Rally by Tigers
Down 2-0 to Stanford in the sixth inning on Monday, Auburn came back with a vengeance. Bobby Peirce worked a bases-loaded walk to bring home Auburn’s first run. Next up was second baseman Cole Foster. He laced a double that scored three runs and the Tigers took the lead for good. They’d go on to post a 6-2 victory over the Cardinal.
Foster is so ill he had to leave the Tigers’ loss to Ole Miss. When Auburn is up to bat and Foster isn’t due up, he seeks out refuge from the stifling heat inside the air-conditioned clubhouse.

Auburn’s offense exploded for 51 runs over three games in the NCAA regionals. But the Tigers had been held to two runs through their first 15.2 innings of the CWS before their sixth inning explosion. Brett Burkhalter closed out the game for his 16th save of the season.
Stanford had been 5-0 in CWS elimination games coming into Monday’s tilt. The win was Auburn’s first in the CWS since 1997.

Arkansas vs Auburn CWS Prediction
The winner of this game will get a second crack at beating Ole Miss. Arkansas and Auburn met in SEC action in a three-game series May 6-8. The Razorbacks took two of the three games.

Over a half-dozen Auburn players are afflicted with a stomach virus. Eventually, that has to take a toll.
