AUBURN, Ala. -

Former Pacelli and Chattahoochee Valley standout Michael O'Neal will start on Saturday during Auburn's season-opening weekend series in Port Charlotte, Fla.

O'Neal will start against Ohio State, and is coming off a season as Auburn's most consistent starting pitcher. As a junior, O'Neal went 8-4 with a 2.73 ERA. Those eight wins were tied for the lead in the SEC.

Fellow senior Dillon Ortman will start Friday against Indiana State, and freshman right-hander Keegan Thompson gets the ball on Sunday against Connecticut.
