   Down 3-2 heading into the eighth, senior Hunter Allday delivered an RBI double to left field to score junior Stephen Martinez, who walked to lead off the inning. Following a sacrifice bunt from junior Ray Johnson, junior Ben Agredano delivered an RBI triple to right center to score Allday to put UAM up by one run.

   The Boll Weevils (1-1) finalized the scoring one at bat later with an RBI groundout by junior Tyler Caruthers that scored Agredano.

   Senior reliever Brent Noble (1-0) retired seven straight Tarleton State batters to seal the win. Noble gave up a hit to the first batter he faced in the seventh to finalize his numbers at one hit allowed with two strikeouts and no walks.

 &Nbsp; Tarleton (1-1) jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning on an RBI single from Rustin Thomas, followed later in the inning with an RBI groundout from Fola Lajide.

 &Nbsp; UAM tied it at 2-all in the top of the third on an RBI single from Martinez, followed by an RBI sacrifice fly from Allday.

   The Texans took a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the seventh on an RBI single from Colten Boothe before UAM posted its three-run rally in the eighth to cap the scoring.

   Agredano and senior Taylor Eaves led UAM in hits. Agredano went 2-for-3, while Eaves went 2-for-5 from the leadoff spot.

   Tarleton’s Tanner Ross (0-1) was saddled with the loss after allowing two runs off one hit with one strikeout and one walk in only one third of an inning.
