Season opens with a bang (Perfect Game)
There were plenty of under-the-radar games that had results that piqued my interest. First and foremost, Auburn taking a 5-2 decision over Missouri was a solid win from my point of view. But even more impressive was the 11-strikeout performance AU veteran Derek Varnadore put together. The Tigers are in business if he can put together outings like that most weekends

“Mentally, I think about it when I’m working out, and if I’m tired on the last lap, I think about the Big 12 Tournament and how we lost by one run,” Zastryzny said. “Maybe 10 more reps in the weight room, we would have won or something.”

“Go out big,” Brown listed as his goal for a final season in the Big 12. “Try to leave them with a sour taste in their mouth. Try to win that championship and make sure they can’t take that away from us.”
