AUBURN, Ala. -
The Blue squad used a four run second inning and great pitching to cruise to a Game Three Fall World Series victory, 6-0, to complete a comeback after falling in Game One.
Rock Rucker and Dylan Smith started the second with back to back singles to left field. Following a Kyler Deese sac bunt and a Hunter Kelley walk, Bobby Andrews laced a single to right to score two. After Kelley scored on a wild pitch, Patrick Savage followed with an RBI single and the rout was on.
Michael O'Neal started for the Blue Team and threw three innings of scoreless baseball. O'Neal struck out two and gave up two hits in his three innings of work. Reid Carter came on the fourth and threw two spotless frames. Carter gave up one hit in his two innings. Justin Camp hurled a clean sixth and Connor Kendrick came on and slammed the door in the seventh.
Rock Rucker added insurance for the Blue Team with a fifth-inning two-run homer to right.
Trey Wingenter took the loss for the Orange Team. Mitchell Self had two hits, including a double. Ryan Tella also had a double.
Auburn has now concluded its fall practice period and will turn its attention to the 2013 Opening Day, which is Friday, Feb. 15 against Maine.
