Auburn baseball arrives for SEC Baseball Tournament

Former Cullman Bearcat Keegan Thompson will get the start for the Tigers against Ole Miss in the SEC Tournament (abc3340.com)

Auburn baseball hopes it's recovered some of it's SEC momentum.

The Tigers snapped a seven game losing streak by taking two of three from Ole Miss over the weekend. They will face the Rebels again Tuesday in the SEC Tournament. Auburn is seeded 8th and Ole Miss is 9th.

"We won seven out of our 10 SEC series so I think anytime you go through the best league in America, there could be a stretch," Tigers coach Butch Thompson said. "The timing, late in the year is not exactly what you draw up as a coach but hopefully our guys have rebounded and are ready for this start of postseason or this new chapter."

Former Cullman Bearcat Keegan Thompson will get the start for the Tigers. His last outing was superb. He threw six no-hit innings against the Rebels last Thursday.

"I think he wanted this niche," Butch Thompson said. "You know, he pitched for Team USA, he's pitched some humongous games for Auburn University. I think he wanted to check this box as well as far as pitching at the conference tournament"
