Game 2: Ole Miss defeats Texas A&M 6-4
Texas A&M continued their good baseball Saturday evening…right up until the 8th inning. With a 4-2 lead and runners on 2nd and 3rd, an error by Austin Homan allowed Ole Miss to tie the game 4-4. The Rebels were able to add 2 more in the same inning and went on to win 6-2.
What frustrated me most about this game is that Texas A&M lost due to mistakes that a young team with not a lot of big game experience would make. However, it was the experienced members of the Aggie roster that made the critical errors that cost this team the game.
Once again the Aggie offense looked starkly different from the opening game of the series. Walker Pennington delivered a big 2 RBI single in the top of the 4th scoring Baine Schoenvogel and Cole Bedford. Despite his struggles at the plate this year, Pennington continues to deliver in clutch situations.
Corbin Martin pitched well for Texas A&M, going six innings, allowing just two runs on four hits. John Doxakis was saddled with his third loss of the year, surrendering three runs in only one inning. This game was one that both Aggie players and fans could be haunted by, simply due to the fashion of how A&M let Ole Miss tie the game.
