Dylan Ingram and Bo Decker hit home runs and pitcher Daniel Davis pitched eight shutout innings to help Auburn beat Tennessee 8-1 on Saturday.

The Tigers won two of three games in Knoxville to win their fourth series in five weeks of SEC play.

Auburn scored two runs in the fourth inning, and Decker hit a home run to left field with one out in the fifth inning. Conor Davis followed with an RBI single to give the Tigers a 4-0 lead after five innings.

Ingram's blast came with two on in the seventh inning to make it 7-0 and Jonah Todd drove in the final run with a single in the eighth inning.

It was plenty of offense for Davis, who allowed just three hits in eight shutout winnings to improve to 3-2 on the season.

Tennessee scored it's lone run on a home run in the ninth inning off Tigers reliever Ryan Watson.
