Auburn baseball is searching for consistency on offense

The early season “feeling out” period for Auburn baseball continues, as Coach Butch Thompson tries to replace key offensive pieces that have moved on in SS Ryan Bliss (MLB), C/OF Steven Williams (MLB), 1B Tyler Miller (MLB) , and 3B Rankin Woley (graduation). Incoming transfers 1B Sonny DiChiara (.538/.649/.1.269, 4 HRs, 8 RBIs, 14 R) and leadoff hitter RF/3B Blake Rambusch (.303/.368/.394, 3 steals, 3 RBIs, 8 R ) have shown to be offensive stalwarts, having started every game for their new team and provided a spark both on and off the field. They’re joined at the top of the stat sheet by outfielder Kason Howell (.357/.472/.536, 1 HR, 2 steals, 9 RBIs, 7 R), a senior with 132 starts in centerfield and an anchor in the locker room. Sophomore 2B Cole Foster (.240/.406/.400, 1 HR, 13 RBIs) won the 2nd base job out of fall camp and delivers loud contact and a smooth glove at 2B.
