Auburn has eliminated No. 2 national seed Stanford from the College World Series. Cole Foster’s three-run double in the sixth inning gave Auburn the lead, and the Tigers went on to win 6-2.
It was Auburn’s first CWS victory in 25 years. The Tigers will play Tuesday against the loser of Monday night’s game between Arkansas and Mississippi.
Stanford went 0-2 in a CWS for the first time in 18 appearances. The Tigers had managed one run and seven hits in 14 CWS innings before breaking out in the sixth against the Cardinal.
