BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION, Texas - A seven-run fourth inning vaulted No. 23 Texas A&M past Missouri, 11-4, to clinch the series Sunday night at Davis Diamond.
Trailing 4-1 in the fourth inning, Texas A&M (32-18, 12-12) capitalized on a Missouri (31-22, 5-16) fielding error in the fourth scoring seven unearned runs. Allie Enright smashed a two-run home run to dead center to put the Aggies within one, before Amari Harper gave the Maroon & White its first lead with a single up the middle to score Star Ferguson and Koko Wooley.
Two batters later, Julia Cottrill opened the game up with a three-run home run as the Aggies led after four. Cottrill put the nail in the coffin in the sixth inning with her second three-run blast of the night to make it 11-4. The Wichita, Kansas, native ended the series with four home runs and 10 RBI.
Emiley Kennedy entered the game in the top of the second with one out and bases loaded allowing minimal damage as the Tigers scored three runs. The lefty shut down Mizzou allowing only more hit the rest of the game. Kennedy totaled 5.2 innings striking out three, while allowing two walks, two hits and no runs to earn win No. 10 on the season.
The win put the Aggies at .500 in SEC play for the first time since 2018 when the Maroon & White went 13-11 in league play.
The Aggies travel to Houston for their regular season finale against the Cougars on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
