Texas A&M Vs. Texas Baseball Final Score: Aggies Withstand Longhorns Rally, Win 6-5

It got close there for a little while as the Texas A&M Aggies watched their 6-0 advantage just sort of dangle by a thread with the Texas Longhorns making their ninth-inning run. It was all A&M for the entire game until that final inning, when Texas showed that anything can happen until at least 27 outs are accounted for.

A&M scored two runs in the first inning, then three in the third and another in the fifth for good measure. It was quiet for a while. Then it was time to shut the Longhorns out and they wouldn't go away so easily.

There was an unearned run on a pass ball that scored Brooks Marlow to get everything started for the Longhorns in the ninth inning. Sophomore outfielder Mark Payton banged in a two-RBI single to center field to cut the deficit to three runs with two outs.

After Colin Shaw was walked, it loaded the bases for Erich Weiss who came through with a two-RBI double to make the score 6-5. Jonathan Walsh had the opportunity to give Texas the lead, but he grounded out for the final out of the game and the Aggies barely made it out of that.
