The first game of Day 2 in the Campbell/Cartier Classic was a 10-2 run rule win against Loyola Marymount on Saturday, Feb. 17.

Starting off the game as the home side for the first time in the series, junior P Emily Leavitt struck out two batters in her first outing in the circle.

Senior INF Trinity Cannon on a full count with one out left in the Aggies at bat put two runs on the board in the first. Junior INF Koko Wooley singled as the first batter, stole second and ran in before Cannon.

Struck out looking by senior Lion P Jenna Perez was junior OF Allie Enright who followed a walked sophomore OF Keely Williams.

Three up, three down in the second. Leavitt and Perez only saw three batters each in the inning. Earning her fourth strike out in the third, Leavitt struck out graduate OF Lauryn Carter looking.

Sophomore INF Kennedy Powell singled to center field, but she was caught stealing second for A&M’s first out of the bottom of the third.

Two walks and two wild pitches for Perez put Wiggins on first and Enright on third. Sophomore INF Aiyana Coleman pinch hit for sophomore INF Amari Harper and Enright scored on Coleman’s sac-fly. Wiggins advanced to third on a throwing error and scored on a wild pitch to put the Aggies up 4-0.

Following Wiggins’ score, Wooley was walked by Perez. Entering the game for the Lions was senior P Alessandra Samperio. Wooley caught the LMU defense lacking and scored the fifth run to enter the fifth inning.

Senior OF Adele Braun pinch hit for sophomore OF Avery Francis and promptly homered to left field to bring graduate OF Elisa Rosado home with her. LMU chipped away at A&M’s lead to 5-2.

In her second career triple, Harper sent Enright home. Wooley stepped up to the plate and singled up the middle for Harper to score. The Aggies extended their lead 7-2 to start off the sixth.

Leavitt once again only saw three batters in the sixth. Once it was time for A&M to bat, Julia Cottrill stepped up to the plate and hit a homer down the left field line.

Cannon and graduate OF Jazmine Hill were walked, so LMU put in its third pitcher in junior Savannah Hooks. Enright singled to left center and sent Lovell home.

Wiggins stepped up to bat and was walked to load the bases with one run needed to enact the run rule. Harper reached on a fielder’s choice as Enright was out at third and Hill scored.

A&M will have a rematch with yesterday’s opponent SDSU, where the Aggies won 7-5, in the second match of Day 2. First pitch will be at 5 p.m.
