Softball halves Saturday doubleheader

The No. 23 Texas A&M softball team (6-3, 0-0 SEC) split the doubleheader Saturday in day 2 of the Aggie Classic at the Aggie Softball Complex, shutting out Eastern Michigan 8-0 in six innings and ending the evening with a 4-3 extra innings loss to Penn State.
Sophomore Reagan Boenker began the scoring for the Aggies, hitting a two-RBI double in the bottom of the first to extend the Aggie lead to three. Freshman Tori Vidales continued her hot start to the campaign by smashing a two run home run to push the Aggie lead to six.
Boenker finished the game a bit early for the Aggies, hitting a two-run walk-off shot to run rule Penn State in the bottom of the six. Senior Rachel Fox continued her dominance from the mound with a shutout for the second consecutive day.
Junior Katie Marks was the starter going into the second game of the doubleheader against Penn State. The Aggies took the lead in an unconventional way with freshman Ashley Walters getting hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to bring in fellow freshman Tori Vidales home.
Marks couldn’t get out the third inning, however, and needed relief from sophomore Abby Donnell. The Aggies and Nittany Lions were tied 3-3 after seven and needed extra innings to settle the game. Penn State scored one run in the top of the eighth, which was all it needed for the victory.
The Aggie Classic concludes at 12:15 p.m. Sunday against Missouri State.
