SOFTBALL: No. 5 Texas A&M clips Arkansas, 2-1


COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The Aggies got their first leadoff runner of the game as Jenna Stark led off the bottom of the fifth. She was hit by a pitch and advanced to first. Two batters later Cohen faced Amber Garza with one out, she lined a ball down the first base line and it was robbed by Wallace. She used full extension to nab the ball out of the air. The sophomore then doubled up the Cassie Tysarczyk at first to end the fifth.   

Cohen continued to work into the sixth and received more help from her defense. Brittany Clopton started the inning by popping out to Oprzedek at third. She charged the ball and made a nice play to catch it in foul territory. After a groundout to Navarro at short for out number two, May grounded a ball to second and Bronkey made a magnificent play to throw out the catcher. This ended Cohen’s day in the circles as she went six innings, gave up one run on one hit, while striking out one.

Wallace started a two-out rally in the top of the seventh as she singled to rightfield. This was the third hit of the day for the Hogs. Canfield followed the single with a hit of her own, but, Wallace was thrown out trying to advance to third.

Kimmy Beasley came on to work the seventh and walked Nicole Morgan to start the bottom half of the inning. Dumezich then bunted pinch-running Allison Garrett to second. With one out, Lanphear approached the plate and hit a bloop single to rightfield. This scored Garrett from second base and ended the game. Arkansas fell, 2-1, at Texas A&M.

Next up for the Razorbacks will be the second game of SEC play against Texas A&M. Game two will start at 4 p.m. tomorrow from College Station.

    When Claremore’s Matt Whatley takes his place behind the plate tonight in the Oklahoma Coaches Association Large School East-West All-State baseball game, the former Zebra catcher will be right at home.
    Whatley, who started four years as the catcher for the Zebras, finds his final high school baseball game taking place in his future college ballpark.
    Last November, Whatley and his long-time friend, Bryce Howe, signed NCAA Division I baseball scholarships to play for the Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles.
    Tonight, those dreams come true for Whatley and Jenks outfielder Cadon Owens, who will be joining his former Bearcats teammate on the East squad. Also, Verdigris' Ryan Skalnik will start at third base for the Large East All-State team.
