Texas A&M 2, TCU 1

The Aggies needed an extra inning to do it, but they survived by downing TCU in Game 2 of the Fort Worth Super Regional.

The starting pitchers were the stars in this game. Matt Kent pitched 7.2 shutout innings for the Aggies, with six strikeouts going with six hits and two walks. Preston Morrison went more than nine innings for the Frogs, going 9.1 with seven hits, five strikeouts, two walks and two earned runs. The first of those runs came in the sixth inning when Logan Taylor doubled home Mitchell Nau from second.

Ryan Hendrix relieved Kent in the eighth, and he allowed a game-tying run in the ninth. TCU loaded the bases with two hits, a sac bunt, and an intentional walk to get forces at all bags, and a sacrifice fly brought one in. Hendrix would get through the tenth cleanly though, which set up the Aggies for the winning score in the bottom of the inning. Nick Choruby drew a one-out walk, and he made it to third on a single from Michael Barash. Blake Allemand then hit a sac fly to left deep enough to get Choruby home and even up the series.

Vanderbilt, Illinois Postponed

Weather forced a postponement of the second game of the Champaign Super Regional. Game 3, if necessary, will come on Tuesday.
