The rally caps came out in the 9th as Davis delivered his third hit of the day, this time a solo home run to center field which cut the deficit down two.
Auburn had one last chance in the 9th with the tying run at the plate, but Rankin Worley would go down swinging and Auburn would leave Omaha empty handed.
Auburn finishes the 2019 season with a record of 38-28.
