Arizona Downs Texas A&M 7-4, Rematch Monday Will Determine Regional Winner

The Arizona Wildcats took care of the Texas A&M Aggies 7-4 on Sunday night in the NCAA Baseball Regional. Second-seeded Arizona will once again take on A&M, a top seed, Monday night to determine the region's winner.

Aggie pitcher Derrick Hadley allowed six hits and two earned runs over five innings of work, and left the game with a 2-1 lead. Unfortunately for the Aggies, relief pitcher Kyle Martin couldn't hold the lead, and then some. When Martin relieved Hadley in the bottom of the sixth after a double by Robert Refsnyder, he gave up three hits and three runs, giving the Wildcats a 4-2 lead. Arizona poured on three more runs in the seventh, pushing their lead to 7-2. The Aggies were able to muster two runs in the ninth, but their rally fell short for a 7-4 loss.

It's not the end of the world for the Aggies, who will once again take the field against Arizona on Monday night to decide the regional winner. First pitch from College Station is scheduled for 7:35.
