Auburn baseball falls late to Kentucky, eliminated from SEC Tournament

The Tigers couldn't get runs across against the Wildcats.

Auburn baseball dropped the single elimination game against Kentucky 3-1 in the opening round of the SEC Tournament.

Auburn's bats never really got going outside of a solo home run from Sonny DiChiara in the bottom of the eighth. The Tigers tied the game up 1-1 but the Wildcats hit back-to-back home runs off of Blake Burkhalter to reclaim the lead. Auburn stranded two in the bottom of the ninth and will await seeding for the NCAA Tournament.

Auburn was 0-for-8 with RISP.
