Missouri's Aaron Senne matched his career high with four hits and tied the school record for career doubles as the Tigers defeated No. 21 Texas A&M 13-4 on Sunday in College Station, Texas, to avoid the series sweep.■ Mizzou baseball salvages final game against A&M (KBTX.com)
Senne had RBI doubles in the third and fourth innings. Senne's second double tied him with Ryan Fry with 56 career doubles at Missouri.
“It was another disappointing Sunday in that we weren’t able to finish a sweep,” A&M coach Rob Childress said. “Give their hitters credit, they got the big hits when they counted. I think they scored seven or eight of their runs today with two outs, and we just weren’t able to finish some innings. It wasn’t like we didn’t have our opportunities, they were right there in front of us. We didn’t get them and Missouri did.”
Nice opening series for this young team....get a big win after a difficult loss yesterday in a very tough away stadium. Lots of positives:■ HBP (TexAgs.com)
Tep looks like a friday guy. Anderson came back strong.
Pen, despite all of the negativity on this board did well. Clubb threw in all three games, Clark was strong today, Emens gets a chance to forget yesterday, Scar, Hardoin and McCormack produce.
Youngsters get taste of big 12 ball....brown had a good series, Opel had big hits today to increase the confidence, Santo back in the groove, Plackis with a couple more hits.
Vets had big series, Senne and Nicholas are huge, Liberto steady as always.
Time to go win the Baylor series and build from there.
Dude, our [Texas A&M's] batters step into the baseball. 95% of the time that our guys get hit, it is not even remotely intentional. This is how we defend the inside corner while still covering the outside corner. If a pitcher makes a mistake inside, we get hit. Even before today's game we have been hit 28 times to our opponents 14. Last year it was 93 to 45. The year before that it was 100 to 69. This is OUR style.Elsewhere in Colege Baseball
■ From College Baseball Today:
36,056 FANS AT THE LaTECH-MINNESOTA GAME.
I love how the college boys get the marquee status of playing the first ever baseball game at the new Target Field in downtown Minneapolis. Unfortunately for the home state fans, the Gophers disappointed again, dropping a 9-1 decision. But once again, the college game proves it can pull a wicked-huge crowd, as long as the venue is right.
