Texas A&M Baseball: Aggies Edge Tennessee at Olsen Field

2 of 3


Texas A&M 3 – Tennessee 1

In their first two games against Tennessee, the Aggies used a total of three pitchers. That’s a far cry from where the team was a month ago. Corbin Martin picked up where Hill left off on Friday, hurling eight innings and allowing just one run.

Martin’s struggles with walks were almost non-existent on Saturday. He handed out just one free pass, striking out three and giving up six hits. That’s night and day from the guy that gave up a walk off grand slam against Baylor what feels like eons ago. It looks like the Aggies have found their No. 2 starter just in time for the home stretch.

Mitchell Kilkenny, the third pitcher of the weekend, picked up his second save of the weekend. In three appearances he had four strikeouts, surrendered four hits, and one run in four innings of relief work over the weekend.

On the offensive side of the ball the Aggies batters were hot and cold all afternoon. Texas A&M loaded the bases with no outs in the first inning, but managed just one run. Again with no outs, the Aggies put runners on second and third in the third inning and were able to push just one run across.

The maroon and white manufactured an insurance run in the seventh, and that was it for the scoring. Three runs were enough on Saturday, but it’s evident that this offense is still finding its way into postseason form.
