The Auburn baseball team will return home for a short two-game home stand on Tuesday and Wednesday as it plays host to Alabama A&M at 6:30pm on both days. Auburn is coming off of a series sweep at new national No. 1 Arizona State but does own a six-game home winning streak coming into Tuesday night's contest.
Auburn (9-5) brings a .350 team batting average into the contest, which is second in the Southeastern Conference to just Vanderbilt (.352). Leading the offense are juniors Brian Fletcher (.421), Hunter Morris (.415) and Tony Caldwell (.353), with Fletcher and Morris ranking fourth and fifth, respectively, in the conference individually.
Morris carries a seven-game hitting streak into the contest in which he is hitting .500 (16-for-32) with two doubles, four home runs and a team-high eight runs and 11 RBI. His four home runs, which includes shots in each of the last two games, have inched him up Auburn's career home run list with 27, three shy of cracking the top 10.
Auburn will start So. RHP Dexter Price (1-0, 6.35) on Tuesday and Fr. RHP Slade Smith (0-0, 0.00) on Wednesday while Alabama A&M has not announced who will start on the mound as of this point.
Tuesday is Two-For-Tuesday and Wednesday is ALLKids Youth Night as youth 12-and-under are admitted free with a cap and glove.
