Following No. 16 Auburn’s 11-1 victory at Oxford-University Stadium that wrapped up a three-game sweep of No. 17 Ole Miss, the normally jovial Smith looked like he — and the rest of the Rebels — had just been put through the wringer.
During Auburn’s first sweep in Oxford since the 1976 season, the Tigers outscored Ole Miss 34-8.
“Obviously we didn’t swing it well and it can’t get much worse than what you saw this weekend,” said Smith, whose Rebels have scored a total of 24 runs in their last three conference series. “I don’t think you can put your finger on one thing in particular. We just didn’t hit, that’s the bottom line.” (May 24, 2010, Page 1B)
If there was any doubt the No. 16 Auburn Tigers could swing the bat, they obliterated it this weekend. After claiming games one and two against No. 17 Ole Miss at Oxford-University Stadium, the Tigers made it a clean sweep by winning Game 3 11-1.
