OXFORD, Miss. - The No. 7 Texas A&M Softball team completed its road sweep over No. 24 Ole Miss, 3-1, Sunday afternoon at the Ole Miss Softball Complex.

Texas A&M (25-2, 5-1 SEC) snagged an early 1-0 lead in the first on a Riley Sartain sacrifice fly. Kaitlyn Alderink reached base on a one-out walk and moved to second on a fielding error. After advancing to third on a passed ball, Sartain sent a fly ball to the warning track in center, allowing Alderink to score.

In the second, the Aggies doubled the lead to 2-0. The Aggies loaded the bases on back-to-back two-out singles from Keeli Milligan and Alderink, before Tori Vidales walked. Sartain then worked a 10-pitch at bat to walk, pushing across Milligan.

Alderink led off the fourth with an infield single and recorded her ninth stolen base of the season. Following a walk by Vidales, Sartain plated Alderink on a RBI double to right, extending the advantage to three.

Ole Miss (21-6, 0-3 SEC) chipped away at the lead in the sixth on a RBI single to right by Brittany Finney.
