The Vanderbilt pitching staff stymied the Auburn bats for the second consecutive game as the Commodores defeated the Tigers, 9-1, in Southeastern Conference baseball on Saturday afternoon at Hawkins Field.

After putting a run on the board in the bottom of the second, Vanderbilt (16-7, 4-1 SEC) exploded for five runs in the third and two in the fourth and held the Auburn (12-14, 1-4 SEC) hitters to just two hits over the first seven innings of the game.

Vandy starter Matt Buschmann moved to 3-2 on the year as the senior allowed just one run on five hits while fanning 13, issuing just two walks.

Auburn's Chris Dennis took the loss after allowing six runs on eight hits in 2.1 innings of work.

Tyler Johnstone extended his streak of games reaching base safely to 36 when he drew a walk to lead off the game.

The Tigers and Commodores will play the final game of the series at 1 p.m. CT on Sunday. Auburn will send freshman lefty Evan Crawford (2-3), who is coming off of a career performance against South Carolina in his last outing, while VU is expected to counter with sophomore southpaw Cody Crowell (2-0).
