Tigers avoid sweep with Sunday win at Auburn

The No. 13 LSU baseball team avoided a sweep Sunday against Auburn with the same clutch hitting that had proved elusive earlier in the weekend.

The Tigers (18-6, 3-3) broke a 3-3 tie in the ninth inning of Sunday's series finale after two straight days of coming up short in similar situations. Jared Foster, who has struggled in recent weeks, proved to be the game-winning run when he walked to lead off the top of the ninth. After third baseman Tyler Hanover bunted Foster to second base, JaCoby Jones (who managed just three hits for the series) singled to bring him home for a 4-3 lead.

Kurt McCune, who lost his spot as the Tigers' Sunday starter to Aaron Nola last weekend, entered the game in the bottom of the ninth and earned the save by holding Auburn scoreless.
