UNIVERSITY PARK--If State College Spikes left fielder Nathan Southard is involved, the ending must be twisted.
Yet, what happened Saturday might have been the most curious ending of the three wacky ones Southard has helped produce this month.
This time, Southard didn't need an inside-the-park homer or squeeze bunt.
In fact, he didn't move his bat.
Daniel Nieves walked Southard on a 3-2 fastball with two outs and the bases loaded to score Yonathan Sivira as the Spikes defeated Auburn 3-2 in 10 innings before 4,352 fans at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.
"This was exciting," Southard said.
"I knew it was up to me," Southard said."Win it here or keep going."
The sequence will be vividly remembered:
Southard fouled off a fastball.
He fouled off a changeup.
He took three straight pitches - fastball outside, changeup high and fastball high.
With the count at 3-2, the entire crowd started clapping and Southard sent a shot that curved four toward the Auburn bullpen.
Southard then took a low and inside fastball to score Sivira, who entered the game as a pinch runner after 19-year-old catcher Steve Gonzalez started the inning with a single.
"Daley threw really well and our bullpen came in and gave us a chance to win," Southard said.
