Tide split doubleheader vs. Auburn, win series

AUBURN, Ala. -- Sixth-ranked Alabama opened Saturday's doubleheader against No. 7 Auburn in dominating fashion, winning 13-3 to clinch the series victory, but the Tide couldn't complete the sweep as the Tigers edged out the Tide 13-12 in an extra-inning slugfest that lasted nearly four hours.

Alabama (35-10, 12-6 SEC) took the opener to clinch the weekend series, winning its fifth SEC series of the season.

Auburn (41-8, 13-5 SEC) bounced back to avoid the sweep, erasing three Alabama leads en route to an extra-inning victory.

Between the two games, Haylie McCleney and Marisa Runyon each earned five hits, with Runyon driving in eight of the team's 25 runs and slugging three of their five home runs. Alexis Osorio (14-6) threw a complete game victory in the opener but was tagged for the loss in Game 3, allowing the game-tying double and walking the eventual go-ahead runner.
