SEC BASEBALL: Auburn blanks No. 13 Arkansas, 3-0

AUBURN, Ala. — Conner Kendrick and Terrance Dedrick combined on a five-hit shutout as Auburn defeated No. 13 Arkansas, 3-0, in the series opener on Thursday night at Plainsman Park.

Arkansas drops to 34-18 overall and 17-10 in Southeastern Conference play, while Auburn is now 32-21 and 12-16 in league play.

Brian Anderson led the Razorbacks at the plate in the loss, going 3-for-4. Tyler Spoon and Jake Wise each managed one hit.

Mitchell Self was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate and scored twice, while Garrett Cooper drove in two runs for the Tigers and went 1-for-2 at the plate. Jordan Ebert and Hunter Kelley each added two hits in the victory.

Kendrick (5-3) earned the win for Auburn, striking out eight and giving up four hits in 7.1 innings. Dedrick picked up his ninth save of the season, allowing a hit in 1.2 innings.

Barrett Astin (4-4) suffered the loss. Astin gave up three unearned runs on nine hits and struck out seven in 6.1 innings.

Brandon Moore and Michael Gunn combined to work 1.2 scoreless innings out of the bullpen.

Auburn struck first with two runs in the bottom of the third on a two-out, two-RBI single to left field by Cooper to put the Tigers on top 2-0.

The Tigers added on to their lead with a run in the home half of the seventh. After a leadoff single to center by Self, Kelley doubled down the left field line, advancing Self to third. Dominic Ficociello, who was at third, tried to throw Kelley out at second, but his throw went into right field, allowing Self to score on the E5.

Arkansas was unable to get anything going offensively. The Razorbacks had their best scoring chance in the top of the ninth as Spoon walked and Wise singled with one out. However, Dedrick was able to finish the game as he got Jordan Farris to ground into a 4-6-3 double play to end the ball game.

Arkansas and Auburn continue the three-game series on Friday with first pitch scheduled for 6 p.m. The Razorbacks will start junior righty Ryne Stanek (7-2, 1.70), while the Tigers are scheduled to throw junior left hander Michael O’Neal (8-3, 2.85).
