ROUND ROCK, Texas— The Aggies fell 6-1 to Auburn in the finale of the Round Rock Classic on Sunday. The Aggies bats were completely neutralized in the 6-1 defeat as they were only able to scratch out 4 hits.
The Aggies got a great outing from starter Jonathan Childress who went 6 innings allowing 1 run on 4 hits while striking out 5. Childress took the loss, falling to 0-1 on the year.
Auburn got the scoring started in 4th inning on a 2 out single by outfielder Kayson Howell, that scored Tyler Miller. That would be the only run the Tigers would get off of A&M starter Jonathan Childress. Auburn tacked on 2 more runs in the 7th inning when Steven Williams singled to left, scoring Ryan Dyal and Howell, which would prove to be more than enough run support for the Tigers as they would take a 3-0 lead into the 8th inning. Auburn would add 2 more runs in the 8th inning to make it 5-0, before capping it off with a run in the 9th. The Aggies would score 1 run in the 9th to avoid the shutout when, Sartori drove in Frizzell on a sacrifice fly to make it 6-1.
This was a regression to previous renditions of Aggie baseball. A game where the starter went deep into a game giving the Aggies a chance, but was unable to get any run support. With the loss the Aggies fall to 4-4 on the year. The Boys of Olsen are back in action on Tuesday when they take on Houston Baptist, before taking on Incarnate Word on Wednesday.
The Aggies finish the weekend as defacto tournament champions, finishing with a 2-1 record.
See you at Blue Bell on Tuesday. Gig ‘em and #BTHOhbu
