BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Sophomore pitchers Emily Leavitt and Emiley Kennedy combined to no-hit Prairie View A&M as Texas A&M run-ruled the Panthers, 12-0, in five innings Tuesday afternoon at Davis Diamond.
Leavitt started the game and struck out three of the eight batters she faced, while allowing two walks in 2.0 innings of work. Kennedy (9-4) earned the win after pitching the final three innings striking out three and allowing two walks.
Sophomore Allie Enright led the Aggies with the hot bat going 2-for-3, including two doubles and four RBI. Ten different Aggies scored, including freshman Riley Valentine and junior Trinity Cannon each scoring a pair of runs.
Texas A&M (30-17) scored six runs in the opening frame, before adding one in the fourth. A five-run fourth inning put the Aggies in run-rule territory, before Kennedy sat Prairie View A&M (23-17) down in order in the top half of the fifth to end the game.
The victory marked win No. 30 on the season for first-year Aggie head coach Trisha Ford. In her 13-year head coaching career she has registered 30 or more wins in 10 seasons.
The Aggies host Mizzou in a three-game series beginning Friday at 5 p.m.

On the combined no-hitter…
“E-squared. It was a good game coming off the weekend. I wanted to get them some bullpen work but with live batter, so I knew going in that Leavitt was going to throw for two innings and Kennedy was going to throw the next innings. I’m happy with what we did today.”
