A royally upsetting day in college baseball (College Baseball Today)

I never thought I’d say something negative about the Aggies pitching staff, but here we are. The Aggies have one of the best staffs in the country, but gave up 10 runs and 12 hits, along with issuing six walks and five hit batsmen in a stunning 10-9 loss at Missouri. John Stilson, one of the best aces in the country went 6.2 innings, giving up nine hits, six runs (all earned), two walks and one hit batsman. The Tigers rallied from a 6-1 deficit, scoring seven runs in the 7th and two in the t9th to get a jog-off win.

Texas A&M relief pitching: The Aggies appeared to be somewhat in control of Missouri in the last couple of innings, but their relief pitching failed them in a disappointing 10-9 loss to struggling Missouri. First reliever Nick Fleece allowed two runs and recorded just one out while closer Joaquin Hinojosa hit three batters and walked two in the ninth inning to help the Tigers capture a victory. The Aggies have to figure out their bullpen sooner rather than later.

"We made the decision that we weren't going to let our seven-run inning go to waste," MU catcher Ben Turner said. "We've had pitchers who have picked us up all year, and it's about time we picked them up."

After watching film of Texas A&M, Missouri’s baseball players thought Aggies closer Joaquin Hinojosa tended to leave pitches over the plate. The Tigers believed he was hittable.
