AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -

The Auburn University baseball team lost to the Samford Bulldogs on Tuesday night at Plainsman Park by a score of 8-1.

Auburn committed four errors on the night, the fourth time in the last five games the Tigers have had at least three defensive miscues in a game. The Tigers also gave up three unearned runs on two errors in the third inning that sealed the win for the Bulldogs.

"That's just baseball," said Auburn head coach, Sunny Golloway. "They are a free-swinging club. (Samford) getting out to a 3-1 lead allowed them to play the game they want to play. We have to be patient as far as knowing the zone."

Trey Wingenter gave up four hits over five innings and did not allow an earned run, but was hit with the loss dropping his record to 1-1 on the season. Wingenter struck out a career-high seven batters on Tuesday. Six other Auburn pitchers gave up a combined five earned runs on four hits in the final four innings.

Jordan Ebert led the Tiger offense, going 2-for-4 on the night, and five other Auburn players had one hit each.

Auburn is now 19-11 on the season, and will play Ole Miss in a three-game series starting Friday at 6:30 p.m. in Oxford, MS. The final game of the series on Sunday will be televised by CSS.
