After a scintillating 10-inning, walk-off homer win over Auburn on Friday evening, the Lady Vols buried themselves with three errors in a 9-1 loss to the Tigers on Saturday.

Tennessee (28-6, 6-4) got on the scoreboard in the second inning with a towering shot over the left field wall by Jessica Spigner, one of just four hits for the Lady Vols.

Auburn (29-6, 9-4) capitalized on a first inning throwing error, took a 3-0 lead and never trailed on a beautiful but windy afternoon at Lee Softball Stadium before 1,310 fans.

The Lady Vols are back in action Sunday at 1 p.m. to wrap up the Auburn series.

The upcoming week will be spent on the road with a double-header at Georgia on April 6 and then three games at Ole Miss on April 8-10.
