BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION, Texas – No. 21 Texas A&M Aggies dropped its third-straight in the series finale against the No. 17 Georgia Bulldogs, 8-0, Sunday afternoon at Davis Diamond.
Georgia (24-6, 5-1 SEC) took an early lead with a three-run home run in the second, as the Aggies (16-10, 2-4 SEC) were held hitless through the first three frames. Junior Julia Cottrill found the hit column lining a single to left field in the fourth inning, before a miscue on the basepath led to an inning-ending double play after a Morgan Smith flyout.
The Bulldogs put themselves in run-rule territory after scoring a run in the fifth inning and adding four more in the sixth, before the Aggies went down in order in the bottom of the inning.
Texas A&M hosts Louisiana Tech Wednesday, March 22 at 6 p.m. The game will be streamed on the SEC Network+, while fans can also listen locally on 97.3 FM.

On the weekend’s struggles…
“It was not a fun weekend for us. We were excited to open conference play at Davis Diamond. I thought the 12th Man was fantastic all weekend, I just wish we would’ve put together some better outings. There was some good and a bad, but it is just one weekend and that was my message to our team. We have to learn from this, get better and it’s game on moving forward.”
