Less than 24 hours after allowing 16 runs, the Auburn Montgomery baseball team turned to Eran Franks and Daniel Farrar on the mound and the duo did not disappoint.
The Warhawks (24-15, 11-10 SSAC) received 16 innings of one-run, nine-hit baseball from the tandem to lead the team to a sweep of visiting Southern Poly (26-14, 11-10 SSAC). AUM took the opener by a 3-0 score, while winning game two 4-1.
“We had a couple work horses step up and become thoroughbreds today in Franks and Farrar,” head coach Q.V. Lowe said. “I thought our guys played as well as they have all year. The two pitchers came ready to play and really set the tone for the whole team. We are excited to have won these two games.”
In the opener, Franks tossed a three-hit shutout, striking out three and walking one to improve to 5-4 on the season.
“We knew we had to get back on the grind today,” Franks said.
