The Daily Aggie :: 04/26/09

The Aggie baseball and softball teams both split their Saturday doubleheaders. The baseball team crushed Hawai'i 16-6 in game one and hit seven home runs including two home run days from both Jeff Farnham and Nate Shaver. In game two of the doubleheader the Aggies lost 8-7 in 10 innings. The Aggies used a seven run eighth inning to grab a 7-5 lead but Hawai'i would score two runs in the ninth and one in the 10th to take the game. It's the third consecutive series in which the Aggies have rallied to take a late lead after trailing the entire game only to lose the lead after the eighth inning or in extra innings. The Aggies will try for the split today as the finish up their series at 1:05 p.m. at Presley Askew Field.

The Aggie softball team split their doubleheader yesterday winning game one 3-1 but falling in game two 11-3. The Aggies are now tied for 4th at 10-7 with Louisiana Tech, who will visit Las Cruces this coming weekend for the regular season finale. The top five teams in the league are still mathematically in the race to win the regular season title as the final weekend of regular season play winds down. For either the Aggies or Louisiana Tech to earn the regular season title they would need to sweep this weekend's series and have San Jose State sweep Nevada.

The Aggie football team held their spring scrimmage on Saturday night. The Aggies' run game was showcased with 56 rushes for 260 yards and four touchdowns. The passing game struggled as both quarterbacks combined to finish 8-32 for 55 yards and an interception. The defense recorded two defensive touchdowns and nine different defenders recorded tackles for loss. Stephon Hatchett, Ross Conner and John Finau each lead the team with eight total tackles.
