Box Score

Auburn, Ala. - Scott Schade's ninth inning single with the bases loaded lifted the No. 10 Auburn Tigers to a 3-2 victory over the Tennessee Volunteers in the first game of a doubleheader at Hitchcock Field.

Bobby Huddleston got hit by a pitch and was replaced by pinch runner Doug Vines who would score the eventual game winner following three straight hits off Vol reliever Dusty Johnson, including Schade's game winner with no out.

The loss was the fifth straight for Tennessee, which fell to 10-6 overall and 0-1 in the Southeastern Conference. Auburn won its 14th in the last 15 meetings against the Volunteers to improve to 17-4 overall and 1-0 in the SEC.

Beau Massey (1-1) took the loss in relief of starter Ben Riley who tossed 7 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on five hits with four strikeouts and three walks.

Steven Register (1-1) earned the win in 2 1/3 innings of relief. Eric Brandon also turned in a solid starting performance for the Tigers as he was touched for one run on five hits in six innings with four strikeouts and no walks. Cory Dueitt worked 2/3 of an inning.

Auburn drew first blood in the first inning when Sean Gamble scored on Huddleston's double in the first giving Auburn a 1-0 lead.

After Javi Herrera's sixth inning game-tying single to right drove home Michael Rivera, who doubled to lead off the frame, Auburn retook the lead on Gamble's double that plated Chuck Jeroloman in the bottom of the inning for a 2-1 lead.

Herrera then tied the game for the second time with his third home run of the season and 10th of his career in the eighth with a solo shot to right off Register.
