Mike O’Neal can’t complete perfect April

STAFF REPORT

Michael O’Neal couldn’t cash in on a perfect April, taking his first loss since March 23 in Auburn’s abbreviated defeat 3-1 at Missouri Sunday afternoon.

The left-handed O’Neal’s start was postponed a day due to inclement weather Saturday, and turned into the first game of a doubleheader. Per SEC rules, both games on Sunday must be seven innings long.

A Pacelli and Chattahoochee Valley product, O’Neal entered the weekend 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA this month. True to routine, he was thoroughly solid with the exception of one bad inning, when Missouri took advantage of two singles and two hit batters in a three-run third inning.

Auburn’s offense got nothing going, producing just a Garrett Cooper RBI single in the first inning on six hits. O’Neal (8-3) and his counterpart, Keaton Steele (4-2), each handled all the pitching for their clubs; O’Neal struck out three Tigers and allowed three hits in six frames.

  1. I am now thinking Missouri and Auburn will be the 2 teams not making it to Hoover.
    What say you, AB?
