After a four-day stay in Hoover, the Auburn Tigers will head to Raleigh, North Carolina to participate in the NCAA Regional round as the 2-seed, hosted by NC State

They are trending in the right direction.

For the first time in 15 years, your Auburn baseball team is heading to the postseason in back-to-back seasons. The Tigers learned their fate on Monday morning that they would be heading to Raleigh, North Carolina to compete alongside Army West Point, Northeastern, and host NC State.

Auburn made a strong case to host after winning their first two games of the SEC Tournament, a feat that had not been accomplished since 1999. However, a surging Texas A&M team got the best of Auburn on Thursday, as did the Rebels in a rematch on Friday, to bounce the Tigers.

However, the Raleigh Regional should treat Auburn well, considering they have a history with Northeastern, the team that Casey Mize threw his no-hitter against. NC State finished 40-16 on the season, falling in two games in the ACC Tournament to Virginia and Florida State. Army West Point defeated Navy to win the Patriot League championship on May 21.

The Raleigh Regional is paired with the Gainesville Regional, hosted by Florida.
