STAFF REPORT

Texas State’s baseball team ran into four innings of shutout relief Sunday by Texas A&M pitcher Michael Wacha and dropped its third game in a row, 6-2 Sunday in its final game at the QTI Baylor Classic in Waco.

A&M’s Caleb Shofner hit a two-run homer off Bobcats’ starter Brian Borski in the second inning, giving the Aggies a 2-0 lead. They would never trail after that.

The Bobcats scored once in the fifth inning on Tyler Sibley’s infield single and once more in the sixth on Kyle Livingstone’s leadoff homer to come within 3-2. But A&M scored twice in the eighth in Shofner’s base hit and an infield out.

Borski went seven innings for the Bobcats, allowing four runs on seven hits as his record fell to 1-1. Wacha gave up only two hits while striking out four in his four innings to earn his first save of the year. Texas A&M starter Nick Fleece claimed the win with a five-inning performance.

Sibley went three-for-four for the Bobcats, while designated hitter Andrew Stumph knocked out two Texas State hits. But A&M’s Shofner was the offensive star of the game, going three-for-four with three RBI.

Texas State, now 3-3, will play its home opener Wednesday against Rice, starting at 6:30 p.m.
