Recap: Auburn softball drops low-scoring game two to Texas A&M

Auburn softball has not had much luck finding success in its SEC schedule. After a loss in game one of their current series at Texas A&M on Friday, the Tigers attempted to bounce back in what was a defensive battle on Saturday.

Unfortunately for Auburn (15-8-1), this game did also not land in its favor, as the Aggies (27-4) pulled out a 3-2 victory.

The Tigers started the scoring early in this game. After two quick outs on four pitches to begin the top of the 1st, Anna Wohlers sent a pitch deep to center field and over the wall, giving her team an early 1-0 lead.

After a slow 2nd inning and beginning of the 3rd, Texas A&M answered back in the bottom half. After a double and a fly out, Koko Wooley reached on a fielder’s choice which scored Kramer Eschete. Suddenly, the game was tied at 1-1.

Wooley came through for the Aggies again in the bottom of the 5th inning. After Eschete singled up the middle and a strikeout immediately following, Wooley singled through the left side of the field, scoring Eschete and giving Texas A&M the lead.

The Aggies extended their lead in the 6th when Allie Enright sent a home run over the right field wall in an attempt to put the game away. She gave her team a 3-1 lead over Auburn.

The Tigers a stab at the deficit with two outs in the 7th as Amelia Lech hit a solo home run to left center, but that would be it as Auburn’s comeback bid ended right after that.

maddie penta picked up the complete game loss, falling to 8-5 on the season. She gave up three runs on five hits, striking out seven and walking one in the process.

Shaylee Ackerman earned the complete game win for Texas A&M, giving up two runs on three hits, while only striking out two Tigers and walking two as well.

Auburn will attempt to end the series in College Station with a win on Sunday in game three. First pitch in that game is set for 1 p.m. CST.
