Auburn bounced back in big fashion with a 10-2 victory over Florida A&M in only six innings.
Casey McCrackin would tally her team-high fourth home run of the weekend during the game with Justus Perry and Tannon Snow adding home runs to give the Tigers a total of 11 on the season.
The offense got going early with McCrackin scoring on a bases-loaded single by Kendall Veach. Tannon Snow would then capitalize on a sacrifice fly by Perry and add another run to the board. In the second inning, the Tigers would strike again when a wild pitch followed by a sacrifice fly by Tannon Snow would allow Morgan Podany and Taylon Snow to score.
The Rattlers would retaliate in the third with scores by Shakay Nixon and Kaylin Rhone off a line-drive single by Tyra Bowers. Auburn would answer in the next inning with back-to-back homers by McCrackin and Tannon Snow.
The score would remain 7-2 until the top of the fifth when Camryn Greenwood and Aspyn Godwin were singled home by Taylon Snow. Perry would add the final run with a solo homer in the top of the sixth inning.
Chardonnay Harris pitched a career-high five innings while matching her career high in strikeouts with six. Lexie Handley took over for Harris in the bottom of the sixth and had strikeouts with only one hit to seal the game.
Auburn now turns its focus to UAB, who the Tigers will face for the first home game of the Plainsman Invitational at Justin B. Moore Field on Feb. 14 at 6 p.m. EST.
