**For Immediate Release** Baseball Drops Game to Texas A&M International By Laura Nelson on 03/30/2013 Goodwell, Okla.—The Texas A&M University Dustdevils completed a 3-game sweep Saturday afternoon, beating Oklahoma Panhandle State University 10-0 in an 8-inning, run-rule game.

Even though the Aggies hurt themselves with six errors, they did make some great defensive plays. In the sixth inning, they made a textbook double play as Jordan Sprouse threw to shortstop Robert Montoya to get the second base runner out and then Montoya made a perfect throw to first baseman Nick Crosswhite to get the batter out. For the third out in the inning, Dominic DeJoseph, in left field, shot a rocket to catcher BoYbarra who tagged the runner out at home. The Dustdevil bats banged out a total of 14 hits, two of them home runs hit by left fielder Matt Garcia. The Aggies had five total hits, two of them from Ybarra. Starting pitcher Alan Scott scattered nine hits and struck out one in five innings of work and was credited with the loss.

The Aggies continue their home stand April 5 with a doubleheader with Newman University scheduled for noon. The first 150 fans will be treated to a burger and all of the fixings at game time thanks to the generosity of the Oklahoma Pork Council! The final game of the series is set for noon on April 6.
