Senior Aaron Senne
March 28, 2010
COLLEGE STATION, Texas- - Aaron Senne matched his career high with four hits and tied the school record with 56 career doubles as Mizzou defeated No. 21 Texas A&M, 13-4, on Sunday in College Station, Texas to avoid the series sweep.
Senne collected hits in each of his first four at-bats and was 4-for-6 in the game. He had RBI doubles in the third and fourth innings. His second double of the day was the 56th of his career, moving him into a tie with Ryan Fry (1995-98) for first on MU's career doubles list.
The victory moves Missouri to 13-8 on the season and 1-2 in the Big 12 Conference, while the Aggies fall to 17-6 overall and 4-2 in league play.
With the first two Tigers in the top of the first inning retired, Mizzou put together a two-out rally, starting with singles from Senne and junior Brett Nicholas. Redshirt freshman Andreas Plackis then singled through the right side of the infield to drive in both Senne and Nicholas and give MU the 2-0 advantage.
The lead was cut in half when the Aggies' shortstop Brodie Green homered in the bottom half of the first inning and Gregg Alcazar put Texas A&M in front with a two-run home run in the bottom of the second.
Missouri batted around in the top of the third inning, putting up six runs on six hits. Back-to-back RBI doubles from Senne and Nicholas put Mizzou back in front, 4-3. Freshman Blake Brown singled to drive in a run and sophomore Andrew Thigpen delivered the Tigers third RBI double of the inning. Freshman Dane Opel drove in the final run of the inning with a single to score Thigpen.
Senne's record-tying double in the fourth inning drove in junior Jesse Santo, who had reached on a triple. After Texas A&M got one run back in the bottom of the fifth, the Tigers put three more runs on the board in the top of the sixth inning on just one hit. Two walks, a wild pitch and an error that resulted in two runs aided the Tigers in the sixth inning.
MU added a run in the ninth inning on a Nicholas sacrifice fly.
In addition to Senne's four hits, Santo, Nicholas, Plackis, Brown and Opel had two-hit games. Sophomore Ryan Clubb earned the victory, as he pitched 2.2 innings in relief. Junior Tyler Clark followed Clubb and pitched three scoreless innings, giving up just one hit and striking out three. Sophomore Jeff Emens pitched a scoreless ninth inning.
Missouri will return to Taylor Stadium for a six-game homestand, which will open with a two-game midweek series with Purdue. Game one against Purdue will get underway at 6 p.m. on Tuesday.
