NACOGDOCHES, TX (Press Release)- Pitted against one of the nation's top-10 squads for the third time through its first six games, the Stephen F. Austin baseball team committed seven errors which led to 15 of No. 4-ranked Texas A&M's 21 runs in an 21-1 setback to the Aggies on Tuesday night.
The lone SFA run of the tilt came in the top of the second when Conner Fikes laced a one-out triple to the deepest part of Blue Bell Park's cavernous center field. Following Fikes' first extra base hit of 2016, Garrett McMullenpunched a single up the middle to score Fikes, making the score 4-1 at the time.
Eric DeJesus followed with a single of his own and pulled off a double steal with McMullen to put both Lumberjacks in scoring position, but Jace Vines ended SFA's only other threat with one of his seven strikeouts and a flyout.
Texas A&M clubbed 20 hits on the night and scored at least one run in all but one of the non-conference game's nine innings.
Vines (1-0) collected the win for the Aggies by hurling five innings of three-hit baseball. Although he wasn't charged with an earned run, SFA's Austin Hagy (0-1) was hit with the loss after giving up six hit and six runs in three innings of work.
Center fielder Nick Choruby went 4-for-5 with five RBI and a pair of runs scored for the Aggies. Texas A&M leadoff man Boomer White produced a 1-for-5 outing at the dish and was credited with four RBI.
