In the top of the second, Cheyenne Hornbuckle made contact and hit a double to left field. Two at-bats later, Lyric Moore singled and advanced Hornbuckle to third. With two on and two out, Haleigh Harper stepped up to the plate and was hit but the pitch to load the bases. The Jayhawks were unable to finish and left three stranded.
In the bottom of the second, Savanna DesRochers recorded two strikeouts, but gave up a home run that put Texas A&M ahead 8-0.
In the third and fourth innings, Kansas attempted to start something as Ashlyn Anderson, Hornbuckle and Moore all had hits, but the Jayhawks could not score.
The Aggies added four more in the bottom of the fourth and the game was ended after the top of the fifth due to a run rule.
