Head Coach Trisha Ford on…

…the Aggie offense:
“I thought that we put pressure on her [Kelly Maxwell] every inning. We just didn’t get that hit when we needed that hit. I was pleased with our offensive approach, and I thought we attacked early. We attacked strikes, and we took some walks today. We just couldn’t quite get that one.”

…Texas A&M pitching:
“We didn’t work ahead, and we gave away too many free bases. We were in double digit of hit by pitch and walks combined and we just we can’t do that. They know that and we’ll be better tomorrow. I told them “hey, let’s own this. We didn’t carry our weight, let’s own it. Now let’s move forward to tomorrow.” That’s the worst thing we can do, is take today and bring it in tomorrow. We’re very capable on the mound. I think we have a really good staff. We just have to execute pitches when we need to.
