Junior Kaitlyn Alderink made four putouts.

In a conference showdown between two nationally ranked teams, No. 8 Texas A&M Aggies faced off against the No. 6 Florida Gators for a second game in a three game series. The Aggies struggled for the second consecutive day in Gainesville, as the Gators would run-rule the Aggies in a decisive 10-0 victory in five innings, and are now 2-0 for the series.
Sunday’s game would see the Gators start hot, and continually build their lead on the Aggies, as Florida had quite the explosive day on the offensive side of the plate. 
Florida would begin their offensive domination in the first inning, scoring five runs on A&M freshman pitcher, Kayla Poynter, who allowed three hits with a 6.79 ERA, off of a two-run homerun and a three-run homerun. The game would see the Gators piling on runs the Aggies with Florida scoring once in the second inning, three in the third, and one more in the fourth.
Aggie head coach Jo Evans noted that the night was a struggle for her team, and preached on focus and discipline.
“We were looking in early, and throwing away a bunch, so we got to do a better job going in to pitch. We’re pressing so badly. Our kids are a little frustrated, and it’s a game where you got to be able to dig in and take a deep breath”, Evans said.
A&M on the other hand would struggle to find any offensive production on the day with only one hit on the day by junior pitcher Samantha Show, who hit a triple in the top of the third inning and was 1-1 for batting on the day.
On the defensive end, the Aggies played three pitchers, starting Poynter, and also playing senior Trinity Harrington who allowed four hits with one strikeout, and sophomore Payton McBride who allowed two hits and had two strikeouts.
The Aggies, having lost two straight, now maintain a 29-6 overall record, and are 3-2 in SEC play. A&M will play the third and final game of the series against Florida, Monday evening at 6 p.m. in Gainesville.
