Joel Davis singled with two down to put two runners on in front of George Janca. The Aggies’ third baseman belted a three-run homer in the ninth inning of yesterday’s game and did it again on Sunday, launching a three-run shot to left-center field for a 3-0 Texas A&M advantage.

Vanderbilt - Texas A&M postgame quotes
Head Coach James Franklin
"Starting out with a three-and-out against a high-powered opponent is not the way you want to start the game on offense. We have a problem at punting that we have to get fixed. I thought we started the year punting the ball well, and that is not happening right now."

On South Carolina’s run game

"We’ve got to do a better job on gap integrity and filling gaps on zone reads. Lattimore looked very healthy to me, and even better than last year. He’s a great back and runs with a tremendous power level. But, we have to do a better job of stopping the run and getting that fixed this week.
