2011 College World Series: Aggies Drop CWS Opener After Late Run By Gamecocks

The Texas A&M Aggies got off to a blazing start in their first game of the 2011 College World Series Sunday night, scoring four runs in the opening frame. Unfortunately, the defending champion South Carolina Gamecocks wasted no time in countering with four of their own in the bottom of the first.

Jacob House got the Aggies going offensively with an RBI single in the first. Then with the bases loaded and two down, Brandon Wood laced a triple down the right field line, scoring three runs and putting the Aggies up 4-0.

After South Carolina's four-run first inning rally, neither team managed a run until USC's Scott Wingo belted a shot off the right field fence in the bottom of the ninth for a long game-winning single, scoring Robert Beary from third base.

To remain alive, the Aggies must now win an elimination game against California, who lost to Virginia on Sunday. First pitch is scheduled for 1PM Tuesday, with coverage on ESPN.
