Game One Recap: Baseball – Texas A&M vs No. 4 Florida

The Aggies tried to keep pace with the Gators but ran out of steam dropping game one 6-5. Texas A&M (26-20, 9-13 SEC) made it interesting in the middle innings by coming back from behind twice to tie up the game. However, a seventh-inning home run by No. 4 Florida (37-10, 15-7 SEC) to go up one would prove to be just enough to take the victory.

After going three up and three down to start the game Florida got the ball rolling, where they scored in three consecutive innings taking a 4-0 lead into the bottom of the fourth inning. Freshman standout Jace LaViolette finally gave Florida something to think about with a home run giving the Aggies their first hit and run of the game.

With a little momentum now, the Aggies went on a small rally to keep pace with the score from Florida. Back-to-back singles by Max Kaufer and Hunter Haas put runners on first and second. Trevor Werner represented the tying run as he came up to bat and preceded to launch a pitch over the left field wall scoring three and tying the game up at four apiece.

The teams exchanged runs in the sixth inning to make the score 5-5. Then in the very next inning Florida hit a solo homer to take the lead 6-5. Texas A&M had a very good chance in the bottom of the ninth to either tie or win the game. Unfortunately, with two outs and two runners on base LaViolette would line out to the shortstop for the final out of the game.

Final Score: Aggies 5, Gators 6 – W: Slater, Ryan (7-0); L: Garica, Brandyn (1-2); S: Neely Brandon (9)

Game two will be at 5 pm on Saturday, May 6th.
