Auburn baseball drops midweek to Jax State; notebook

Auburn baseball was unable to carry the momentum of a clincher series against Texas A&M into their midweek slate, falling 5-2 to Jacksonville State. In front of its first midweek sellout in program history, with an announced attendance of 4,096, Auburn, which entered the game third in the SEC with a team batting average of .311, collected 10 hits but stranded 11 runners in the contest. “The consistency with our ballclub, you’re either trying to get momentum or keep it,” head coach Butch Thompson said. “I think this club still has to learn that. Every time we go grab a little bit of momentum and it’s time to get rolling and you get a sellout crowd on a midweek that we haven’t had here ever, you’re supposed to try to take advantage. We did hit the ball hard and at people, but this team can not take a next step until it starts to understand what it means to go and get momentum and keep it and have an urgency about trying to keep it as a ballclub. We did cash in for game three at Texas A&M, but that should be all the more excitement. Getting ready for LSU should have started tonight, in my opinion. ”
