Auburn baffled by Clemson's Harman

Auburn knew they would have their hands full with Clemson ace Casey Harman, and he didn't disappoint. Harman effectively mixed pitches and kept the Auburn hitters off balance, while working his way out of jams late in the game to pick up the complete game win. He threw north of 125 pitches. Auburn starter Grant Dayton threw around the same amount of pitches as Harman, but was plagued by a first-inning 2-run bomb and an RBI single to give Clemson a 3-0 lead.

Then Harman continued to work, holding Auburn hitless through 4 before Tony Caldwell made it 5-1 Clemson with a solo shot over the monster in left. Auburn threatened with a man on in the 7th, and two on in the 8th, but failed to capitalize. Dayton finally settled in, retiring 13 in a row at one point, going 7.2 innings while amassing 9 K's.

Hunter Morris started a potential Auburn rally in the ninth with a solo shot. Caldwell followed with a single, but Dan Gamche hit into a double play and Ryan Jenkins flied out to end the game.

For the second night in a row, Auburn has only one player with more than one hit, which was Tony Caldwell with two. Auburn only totaled 5 hits on the night, another testament to how good Harman truly was.

Auburn faces Southern Miss tomorrow at 1 pm in an elimination game. The winner must beat Clemson twice to advance to the Super Regionals.
