Texas A&M Baseball Loses to South Carolina on a Walk-off Single

Texas A&M and South Carolina’s match-up today at the College World Series could be described as anything but ordinary. With eight of the game’s nine runs scored in the first inning, a walk-off single in a tense bottom of the ninth gave South Carolina a 5 to 4 win at TD Ameritrade Park.

Texas A&M shot of the box with four first inning runs against starting pitcher Michael Roth.  The runs were all unearned because of a Gamecock error.  A&M’s big scoring play was a 3-run triple by LF Brandon Wood.  However, Texas A&M starting pitcher Ross Stripling couldn’t hold the lead in the bottom of the first as South Carolina scored four runs to knot the game at 4-4 after the first inning.

After the wild first inning, which took 40 minutes, the starting pitchers settled down and controlled the rest of the game.  Roth pitched into the eighth inning and Stripling pitched eight complete innings.

Texas A&M’s offense only mustered four hits, with their last hit of the game coming in the fourth inning, and their last base runner in the sixth.

The defending National Champion Gamecocks also had their struggles after the first inning but they were able to garner 12 hits, including three in the ninth.  Catcher Robert Beary started off the ninth with a double, followed by a single by CF Jackie Bradley Jr. A&M reliever Nick Fleece then walked Evan Marzilli to load the bases.  Second baseman Scott Wingo then worked a 1-2 count and singled to right to win the game.
