Texas A&M softball wins fourth SEC series beating Kentucky in the first two games

Texas A&M (31-7, 10-4 SEC) defeated Kentucky (23-14, 2-9 SEC) in the first two games of the series in two hard-fought games, winning each by a single run.

After being swept in their last SEC series against LSU, head coach Trisha Ford wasn't pleased with how her team responded. This weekend was a welcome change from last week, but there was no walking in the park. Game one went to extra innings before Jaz Hill hit a walk-off double for the 5-4 victory.

Game two looked like a blowout, but a well-coached Kentucky team fought back, scoring four runs in the top of the seventh to pull within one before a throw from Jaz Hill to Harper, then Koko Wooley was able to tag the baserunner out at second, ending the game.
