Texas A&M Vs. Tech: Aggies Fall To Red Raiders 8-4 In 12 Innings

Texas A&M won the series two games to one against Texas Tech, but they fell in Sunday's finale 8-4 in 12 innings of play. Texas Tech led 4-2 heading after the top of the eighth inning and Texas A&M was able to score a run in the eighth and ninth inning. In the eight it was Jacob House who hit a RBI double and then in the ninth he hit a sacrifice fly to tie the game at four runs to send the game in extra innings.

The game went scoreless for three innings, but in the top of the 12 is when Texas Tech blew open the game by scoring four runs which came off of Kyle Martin. Martin had pitched the prior four innings and gave up no runs, but he was given the loss by allowing four runs.

The tie was broken by Stephen Hagen who hit a solo shot to put Texas Tech up 5-4 and then a barrage of hits off of Martin which allowed Texas Tech to score three more runs.

Texas A&M head coach Rob Childress talked about the loss:

"It was a hard-fought game and obviously a disappointing loss," Texas A&M head coach Rob Childress said. "We came all the way back in the ninth to tie the game, but just couldn't get a big hit to win the game ... I thought Texas Tech played really well today, give them all the credit"

The loss for Texas A&M drops them to a three-way tie for second place in Big 12 play with Oklahoma State and Texas with a record of 13-8.
