Sweep of No. 5 Florida Prove Tigers Can Play With the Best

“Nobody can take that moment from me … Those are those little moments I take that I don’t need a penny for.” That’s the way Auburn baseball coach Butch Thompson felt after watching his team charge the field following opening SEC play with a sweep of No.5 Florida.

The Auburn skipper had reason to be excited. It was a big moment for a team that went 8-22 in SEC play last season and hadn’t won a series win over a Top 5 ranked opponent in seven years. The Tigers completed the sweep with a walk off 6-5 victory over the Gators Sunday at Plainsman Park.
