Texas A&M Vs. Texas: The Aggies Take Two Of Three From The Longhorns

The Longhorns won on Sunday 2-1, but Texas A&M was still able to win two of the three games in the series against their in-state rival.

Sunday's game saw a wasted effort from Aggies starter Rafael Pineda. He went 7.2 scoreless innings and allowed just two hits to the Longhorns. Texas scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth, winning the game on an RBI fielder's choice by Jordan Etier.

The loss came a day after the Aggies bats exploded in a 12-4 victory. Pacing Texas A&M in that one was third baseman Blake Allemand, who led the team with three RBI. The Aggies also got a home run from right fielder Tyler Naquin in the victory.

Texas A&M now has a light week ahead of them. They travel to Sam Houston State on Monday for one game before picking up conference play again at home on Friday with a series against Texas Tech.
