Pirates draft Gamache

Auburn third baseman Dan Gamache became the first Tigers' player taken in the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft when the Pittsburgh Pirates selected him with the first pick in the sixth round on Tuesday.

Gamache, a draft-eligible junior from Exeter, R.I., hit .299 for the Tigers with 29 RBI and five home runs.

He missed a number of games for Auburn down the stretch because of injuries, including the Southeastern Conference Tournament because of a hand injury that required surgery.

The Pirates selected Gamache with the 182nd pick overall.
