    March 7, 2013

    The Auburn baseball team will play host to Brown for a three-game series this weekend at Plainsman Park. Friday's first pitch is set for 6pm while Saturday's game will begin at 3pm. The series finale starts at 1pm on Sunday.

    Playing in its final non-conference weekend series, Auburn is 9-3 after Tuesday night's Capital City Classic win over Alabama. Freshman Jordan Ebert brings a 10-game hitting streak into the weekend, which is tied for the fifth-longest in the SEC this season, while senior Garrett Cooper has hit safely in each of the last seven games.
