Auburn vs Alabama Highlights | Baseball - April 16, 2021

Auburn jumped out to a one-run lead on a solo home run from Tyler Miller in the first and never relinquished its advantage, ultimately defeating Alabama 5-4 Friday night at Sewell-Thomas Stadium.

Jack Owen (1-2, 7.36) earned his first win of the season in the quality start. The senior lefty pitched a season high 7.0 innings and struck out a season high eight batters. He allowed three runs on eight hits with one walk.

Freshman righty Carson Swilling pitched the final 2.0 innings and struck out three en route to earning his first collegiate save.

"Jack just did a great job and gave Swilling a short rope, something that he could finish," head coach Butch Thompson said. "It was nice to only use two guys tonight and we have an opportunity to come out and win a series tomorrow."

Owen's eight strikeouts in the contest were the second most by an Auburn starter this season, and the Tigers struck out double digit batters for the second straight night.
