Aggies Down No. 1 LSU in Series Finale – Texas A&M Athletics

Aggies Down No. 1 LSU in Series Finale - Texas A&M Athletics

BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION, Texas –?Stanley Tucker delivered a go-ahead single and the No. 15 Texas A&M Aggies scored four times in the bottom of the eighth to come back and take down No. 1 LSU, 8-6, Sunday afternoon on Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park. 

The Tigers (18-2, 2-1 SEC) were quick to get on the board with four runs in the first inning and another in the second, but freshman southpaw Justin Lamkin stole the show on the mound for the Aggies (14-6, 1-2 SEC) with 4.1 innings of relief to hold LSU where it was and give the Aggie offense a chance to strike back.  

Still, the Aggies trailed 6-4 entering the eighth before loading the bases with nobody out against relievers Chase Shores and Christian Little. The latter looked as though he may wiggle out of the jam with consecutive strikeouts, but a bases-loaded walk to Kasen Wells cut the lead to 6-5 and Tucker played the role of hero one batter later with a two-run single through the left side to put Texas A&M in front for the first and final time.  

Hunter Haas then capped the inning and a four-hit day of his own with an RBI single to provide some insurance for Will Johnston in the ninth and the junior lefty did the rest, striking out one and coaxing two fly balls to end a scoreless inning and clinch the win.  

Johnston finished with three strikeouts and allowed only one hit in 3.0 scoreless innings, upping his record to 2-0 with the win. Little fell to 2-1 for the Tigers and was one of four LSU pitchers to have two runs charged to their ledgers. 


Hunter Haas – 4-for-5, 3 RBI, 2B 

Will Johnston – (W, 2-0) 3.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 K 

Justin Lamkin – 4.1 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 5 K 

Stanley Tucker – 2-for-2, 2 RBI, 1 R, 1 BB 

Jack Moss – 1-for-3, HR, RBI, 2 BB
