Tennessee vs Texas A&M score updates in College World Series Game 2

Tennessee vs Texas A&M score updates in College World Series Game 2

OMAHA, Neb. −Tennessee baseball must win its final two games of the season to claim a national title.

No. 1 Tennessee (58-13) will face No. 3 Texas A&M (53-13) on Sunday (2 p.m. ET, ABC) in the second game of the College World Series finals at Charles Schwab Field in Omaha, Nebraska. The Vols lost 9-5 in the opener on Saturday.

UT must win Sunday and again in Game 3 on Monday to win the program’s first national championship. If it loses either game, Texas A&M will win the national title.

The Vols committed three errors and struggled on the mound in Saturday’s opener.

Ted Burton singled through the left side of the infield to lead off the bottom of the ninth inning for Texas A&M. Kirby Connell will come into the game to pitch after a very good performance by Aaron Combs.

One note: Ariel Antigua is in the game at second base for Christian Moore, who strained his hamstring after running all the bases in the seventh inning.

Caden Sorrell singles over Billy Amick’s glove. The tying goal comes to A&M short stop Ali Camarillo without an out. Nate Snead will come in and pitch to him.

Camarillo grounded in on a fielder’s choice, with Antigua’s tag cutting Sorrell’s eye between first and second base.

Kaeden Kent hits with one out and runners on the corners. Kent pops out to shallow left field for the second out.

A&M will land at No. 9, with Ryan Targac stepping up to the plate. Camarillo takes second base due to defensive indifference on the first pitch. Targac flies to the warning track in right field to end it. Vols wins 4-1 in Game 2, forcing a winner-take-all Game 3.

Vols is retired in order in the top of the ninth inning.

Aaron Combs comes out to pitch to Ted Burton to open the bottom of the ninth inning as Kirby Connell and Nate Snead warm up.

Aaron Combs allowed a single and a walk, but produced a flyout to end the inning.

Tennessee is three outs away from forcing Game 3.

Cal Stark hits a long two-run home run with two outs in the eighth inning for his first hit of the CWS. Stark was exuberant while running the bases.

Those two runs are big insurance for the Vols, who are closing in on forcing Game 3.

Aaron Combs throws a flawless seventh inning and appears to be in control. He has allowed one hit and one walk over three innings and 44 pitches.

With two outs, Dylan Dreiling hits a two-run home run to right field to give Tennessee a 2-1 lead. Tennessee finally gets a hit with a runner on, and it’s currently a go-ahead for Dreiling.

Can the Vols bullpen get this house?

After a walk and a single with one out, Aaron Combs leaves the inning with a pair of flyouts.

After a one-out single and a walk, Chris Cortez is done after 99 pitches. Kaiden Wilson, a southpaw, comes into the match and takes on Cal Stark at two.

Stark hit a double play to end the inning. Stark is 0-for-16 in the College World Series.

Aaron Combs is in the game to pitch with two on and no one out, and Combs gets out of trouble with two strikeouts and a pick-off play by Cal Stark at first base.

Chris Cortez works a 1-2-3 fifth inning and has 84 pitches. It’s the CWS finals after all, so don’t be surprised if Cortez is out before the sixth inning as well.

Drew Beam avoids a Jace LaViolette walk in a flawless fourth inning.

Tennessee has now left the bases loaded twice after Blake Burke’s slow grounder to second base to end the inning.

Chris Cortez is at 66 pitches, so we’ll see how much longer he can throw.

Drew Beam retires a runner first and retires two other Aggies in the A&M 3rd. Beam has seven strikeouts and has been very good since allowing the home run in the second at bat of the game.

Blake Burke starts the inning with a walk, but the Vols do nothing else in the third inning.

Chris Cortez has 41 pitches, so he probably has 1-2 innings left.

Drew Beam gets fired up after striking out in the Aggies’ 2nd.

Chris Cortez, the Aggies’ top reliever not named Evan Aschenbeck, is in the game after walking in the opening half. He can go up to four innings, so forcing A&M’s hand in the bullpen will be important for the Tennessee offense.

After Cannon Peebles walked with two outs, Cal Stark grounded to the shortstop, but Aggies first baseman Ted Burton’s call was unsuccessful.

Christian Moore grounded to second base to end the inning. Cortez is currently throwing 101 mph, by far the best arm in the CWS.

Vols left runners in scoring position in each of the first two innings.

Jace LaViolette hits a rocket to right field well past the bullpen for a solo home run off Drew Beam to open the scoring.

Christian Moore led off the UT 1st with a single and then stole second base while Billy Amick struck out on a 3-2 pitch. A&M challenged the safe call at second base, but to no avail.

Dylan Dreiling strikes out to end the inning.

The Aggies will play a bullpen game today, with Zane Badmaev making his first start of the season.
