Passed balls and errors did not help Texas A&M as well and the Bulldogs were able to take full advantage of the Aggie miscues. In the top of the 2nd, Jake Magnum reacher on a throwing error by Corbin Martin and immediately scored thanks to a Brent Rooker double. Later in the 7th inning, Cody Brown singled to center field and then advance to second and then third thanks to a passed ball and wild pitch respectively.
Corbin Martin was charged with his third loss of the year after 5.2 innings of work. Martin allowed three runs on seven hits and struck out three. Cason Sherrod had a rough 2.2 innings of work, allowing two more runs on three hits. The one bright spot at the plate for Texas A&M was a #Whammy to right field by Blake Koptesky in the bottom of the 5th inning. This was the first home of Blake Koptesky’s Texas A&M career.
