Release from Texas A&M Athletics:

LAKE CHARLES, La. – The Texas A&M softball team picked up its ninth consecutive win of the season, with a 5-1 victory over McNeese at Cowgirl Diamond Thursday evening. With the win, the Aggies improve to 19-3, while McNeese falls to 10-15.

Makinzy Herzog tossed her first career no-hitter at Texas A&M. The Missouri City, Texas, native pitched the complete 7.0 innings, striking out nine, just shy her of career-high of 10. The junior threw a combined no-hitter against Florida A&M in her freshman season at Florida State, tossing 5.0 innings.

McNeese’s lone unearned run came in the second inning off an Aggie throwing error.

Shaylee Ackerman belted a three-run shot over the right centerfield fence, as the Aggies have now recorded a home run in nine of their last 10 games. Ackerman records her fourth homer of the season, while extending her hit streak to four.

Herzog extends her hit streak to six after finishing 1-for-4 at the plate. Bre Warren, Haley Lee, Morgan Smith, Kelbi Fortenberry and Ashlynn Walls each recorded a hit in the Aggies’ victory.

WHAT THEY SAID

Head Coach Jo Evans
Opening statement…
“I’m really pleased with our performance tonight. We knew coming in here that we would be getting a really great game out of McNeese. They’ve been playing really well and they’re a team that runs a lot and are very aggressive. Tonight we completely shut down their running game. Haley Lee was great behind the plate. Clearly, Makinzy Herzog was throwing great stuff tonight. She gets her first no-hitter in her career and it’s always fun to have them get it at A&M. I was really excited about that. I thought our team did a nice job getting on the board early. When we go up in that first inning and get a couple of runners on and then Ackerman getting the home run, that was a great way to set the tone.”

ON DECK
Texas A&M opens Southeastern Conference action at LSU for a three-game series beginning Saturday, March 20. First pitch is set for 6 p.m. at Tiger Park in Baton Rouge, La.
