Auburn struggled at the plate. It struggled on the mound. And though Auburn fielders made just two errors, they resulted in seven unearned runs. The result was a 9-2 loss to Kennesaw State at Plainsman Park. It was Kennesaw State's second win over an SEC team in the past week. The Owls won 2-1 at Georgia last week.
Story to come.
Kennesaw State leads Auburn 9-2 through seven innings. Auburn has made two errors, leading to seven unearned runs for the Owls from Atlanta. Jackson Burgreen and Dan Glevenyuak, the No.1 and No. 2 hitters in Auburn's order, have combined to strike out six times.
Auburn gets two runs in the bottom of the sixth to close it to 7-2. Blake Austin is thrown out at home on Jordan Ebert's base hit to end the inning.
Kennesaw State scores five unearned runs in the top of the sixth to take a 7-0 lead over Auburn at Plainsman Park. A two-out error by shortstop Dan Glevenyak opened the door.
Kennesaw State takes a 2-0 lead in the top of the fifth, chasing starter Dillon Ortman. After giving up just one hit through four innings, Ortman gives up four straight. Centerfielder Ryan Tella throws a Kennesaw State runner out at home. Chase Williamson takes over and allows a run on a wild pitch before getting the final out. Auburn, 6-1 on the season, has now been behind in seven of eight games.
Auburn and Kennesaw State are scoreless through four innings. The Tigers loaded the bases with out in the second on two hits, including Garrett Cooper's double, and a walk, but Sam Gillilkin struck out and Jordan Ebert grounded out. Kennesaw State is trying for a second win over a Southeastern Conference team after knocking off Georgia 2-1 last week. The Tigers loaded the bases after two were out in the fourth on back-to-back singles by Cooper and Austin and a walk to Gillikin, but Ebert grounded into a fielder's choice.

If you cant be honest....whats the point of being anything?
Another great day in Auburn athletics! Thanks Jay!
Somewhere I heard that our defense was supposed to be better. That apparently was an untruth! I also heard we were supposed to have better hitting - another untruth! And we still haven't figured out how to get runs in from 3rd base. Whatever happened to playing for a run? Hitting for the fences doesn't work out all the time, and too many runners are stranded! And pitching?? Hey - I still have 4 years of eligibility remaining - do they take septuagenarians on the team? Hmmmmm - arm probably wouldn't last more than 3 innings - oh, wait - that's more than our pitchers can handle, isn't it? Too little, too late, too old!! Wah!! WDE!!!
As the songs says - DON'T SLOW DOWN!! Eufaula, Alabama! WDE!!!
I just don't understand these mid-week lapses. Losing to teams you should handle have cost us in the past- I hope this is not the start of a repeat of last year. Palowski has to know he has a short rope. These games should help build your won-loss record for end of the year tournament consideration. Take each game one at a time!
Jay Jacobs is an Awful Baseball coach/ Basketball coach/Footbal coach/swiming coach/equestrian coach/ golf coach.... I mean how many times can he lose games...right?
Thanks for adding another usless fact McDuh
Odd. I was under the impression that the Athletics Director was responsible for the success, or in this case the failure, of the Athletic Department.
Yeah. But place it in that frame of refference. Dont continue to act like every single loss is his fault.
He is to blame for the overall performance of the AD and the Sports programs. While doing so there will be wins and losses that are completely out of his control. He has also made many statements that all coaches get reviewed at the end of their respective seasons. So the constant and obsessive comments about every loss being singularly blamed on him are getting as old as Bruh.
JJ is not free of blame for the hires of these men and women and their overall performance. But drop the every loss is his fault.
Coach Paw was a succesful coach before he came to AU. Period
Coach Barbee was a succesful coach and a very bright mind in basketball before his stint at AU. Period
Coach Chiz was an epic failure as a HC before AU hired him. Very questionable hire. Won a Nattty. then continued sucking at life as a HC.
Coach Flo is a very bright mind and will do her best to get us back in the upper tier of Womens basketball.
JJ has hired coaches that were respected in their fields and were lauded as they came in Sans One Chiz.
JJ has not.....
Prepared a team to play a game in any sport.
Coached a team that played in any sport
Nor has he restricted any coach from disciplinary actions against the players on their respective teams.
He has not gameplaned for any game in any sport.
hence he can not be held to the fire for each and every loss.
Hope this clarifies your usless argument of balming him for every loss. While not giving any credit for any wins by any of the teams. hence giving him an O fer on wins....But stacks and stacks of Ls. Makes all the sense in the world...right?
If he is accountable for losses. He should be credited for wins. No matter the feelings involved on a coaches worth or value.
So with that JJ has won....
SEC West titles, SEC Titles, national Championships...with an S due to swiming.
And hundreds of games, meets, matches and tourneys.
And if I am not mistaken . he hired our new Gymnastics coach....they are dong very well. And he just won 10 SEC swiming titles last week.
I am no fan of JJ. I dispise the man. I would love nothing more than for him to be fired or retire. He is a hinderance to our progress right now. he makes bad deals with caoches and pays outlandish buyouts.
But in the context of your statement..... he is not responsible for each and every win and loss. He is responsible for building a strong and competitve total sports program. He has not. I agree.
JJ is on the hook for total program... Not each and every win and loss. because folks like you only count losses....not wins.
Go figure. Took more than 20seconds for you to read and understand so you quit. Got ya.
Next time come to the discussion with even a touch of base in your argument. It will be much more fun that way!
I didn't need to read it. I knew what it was going to say. That entire diatribe could have been condensed down to two sentences. Also, if your comp. skills had been a little crisper you would have noticed I didn't blame the losses on JJ.
McBiguns time is important. Try to respect that in the future.
He is also responsible for the hires. It doesn't matter what people or he thought about the hires. Just because he thought Pawl was a good choice doesn't make it a good choice. As an AD performance of the AD is what matters not perception of the coaches when hired. This year has been one of the worst years in Auburn's history period. This isn't about what happened in the past this is about what has he done lately. Football just had the worst season in a very very long time. Our baseball program hasn't done anything since the bats changed. I don't even need to talk about the state of our basketball program. We also pump more money into our AD and JJ than just about any other school.
