This game was a pitcher's duel from the beginning. Gamecock starter, Braden Webb went 6.2 innings with 8 strikeouts. He also gave up 3 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks.
Braden Webb started the day nicely, but then gave up all three of his earned runs during the Texas A&M half of the 2nd inning. A&M was able to scratch first with three straight basehits and quickly gained a 3-0 lead on the Gamecocks. However, the Gamecocks would get one back in the bottom of the 3rd on a hit and run by Mooney that ended up scoring Gene Cone.
Down 3-1 from the that point forward Braden Webb would be masterful for the rest of his time on the mound. Webb would work deep into the 6th inning before eventually being replaced by Josh Reagan. Reagan would go 2.1 innings with 1 run given up.
Brigham Hill, the Texas A&M starter, was able to outduel Braden Webb for most of the day as he would pitch 7 innings and only gave up 1 run on 5 hits. The Aggies would bring in Mitchell Kilkenny and Mark Ecker, in the 8th and 9th innings respectively, to shut the door on the Gamecocks.
With the loss the South Carolina Gamecocks fall to 42-15 on the year and Webb falls to 10-5 for the season. With their national seed hopes on life support, the Gamecocks will have an anxious day during the Selection Show to see if the committee will reward them one of the top 8 national seeds.
