Resilient Auburn Shows Off Big Heart Yet AgainPostseason
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — The foundation was laid a year ago in Gainesville.
In June of 2018, Auburn was one win away from its first trip to Omaha since 1997, and locked in a 2-2 tie with Florida in the 11th inning. Freshman stopper Cody Greenhill was on the mound, and Florida’s Austin Langworthy hit a drive to right field. Auburn freshman Steven Williams leapt, got a piece of the ball — and watched it ricochet over the fence for a walk-off home run, sending the Gators to the College World Series and sending the Tigers home.
