One night after dropping a 2-1 contest, the Auburn Montgomery baseball team outscored Brewton-Parker 26-5 and swept Saturday’s doubleheader at Barons Field.
AUM (27-16-1, 13-11 SSAC) took the opener 10-1, while taking the rubber game 16-4 in eighth innings. With the loss, the Barons fell to 22-16 overall and 12-9 in league play.
“Today our guys really stepped up when they had their backs against the wall,” head coach Q.V. Lowe said. “They could have come to the park today and caved in, especially being on the road, but they showed their true toughness. I can’t say enough about the way Daniel (Farrar) came in and threw today. This is the second week that he has come in and done an outstanding job for us. We had good approaches at the plate and really hit the ball well as a team.”
The Warhawks finished the doubleheader with 26 hits, led by Branden Kelley’s five in the twin bill. Hayden Hillyer, Josh Thompson and Chad Mansmann finished with four hits each.
