♦ Tigers give up late lead, suffer doubleheader sweep to Missouri (oanow.com)
Auburn, with the clock ticking down on a shortened Game 2 of a Sunday doubleheader against Missouri, ostensibly had three outs to get and a two-run cushion with which to work.
Instead, the home Tigers coughed up the lead while giving up only one hit.
. . .
“We had opportunities to win games,” Pawlowski said. “That first game, we had 20 baserunners. Just one hit short there. But (Missouri) played well and certainly deserved the win.”
Dane Opel went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBIs for Missouri in its Game 1 win, and Champagne logged two-hit games in both ends of the doubleheader.
