Texas A&M baseball vs Oregon final score: 9-run seventh inning spurs Aggies to College World Series


No. 3 overall seed Texas A&M (49-13) got everything it wanted from Oregon, and more, in Game 2 of the on Sunday.

Indeed, it seemed as if the Ducks might force the "if-necessary" Game 3 on Monday after taking an 8-4 lead into the seventh inning. But, thanks to a monster nine-run inning from the home team 鈥 including a grand slam from Keadan Kent, who replaced an injured Braden Montgomery in the batting order 鈥 the Aggies were able to prevail, 15-9, to advance to the .

As auspicious as the seventh inning was for the Aggies, however, Game 2 was eerily similar to the first game after starting pitcher Shane Sdao exited with less than an inning of work with an apparent right arm injury. He exited following a two-run homer by Oregon, which the Ducks promptly followed with two more consecutive homers to take a quick 4-1 lead.

From there it seemed as if any offense the Aggies could muster were undone by timely double plays by the Ducks' defense. Poor base defense on the part of the Aggies allowed Oregon to score runs in the second, third and sixth innings to take an 8-4 lead into the seventh.

There, six walks and a hit-by-pitch resulted in five runs for the Aggies, leading Kent to mash a grand slam for his second hit of the inning. Oregon never truly threatened again, and Texas A&M rode that momentum throughout the remainder of the game.
