Auburn Tigers - War Eagle
15-2 Record, SEC​

The Tigers lost a good one at the end of last season in All-American righthander Casey Mize, but they had plenty of hope on the mound with the return of another righty, Tanner Burns. Burns was sensational as a freshman last season and only has continued that success this season.

Burns was outstanding Friday night in a dominant 5-0 win over Cincinnati. He struck out 15, didn’t allow a single walk and allowed just two hits in a complete game shutout performance. He threw 104 pitches in the victory.
For the season, Burns is putting up video game numbers. He has an 0.92 ERA in 19.2 innings, along with 29 strikeouts and just three walks. Amazingly, teams are hitting Burns at just a .106 clip.

There was plenty of pressure on Burns entering this season, and there’s even more now. First it was losing Mize to the draft, now righthander and fellow starting pitcher Davis Daniel is down with an injury for a few more weeks. Yet, with the pitching load for this team on his shoulders, continues to dominate opponents.
Pretty impressive, Tanner.
