Blake Allemand powers No. 7 Texas A&M to 6-1 win against No. 10 Vandy
HOOVER, Ala. -- Blake Allemand hit two home runs and Matt Kent threw a complete game to lead Texas A&M by Vanderbilt 6-1 on Thursday in the Southeastern Conference tournament.
Allemand hit a two-run homer in the second inning and a solo shot in the fourth to help the Aggies (46-10) build an early 6-0 lead. The left-handed Kent (7-1) did the rest, holding the Commodores (40-18) down to just one run on four hits.
Texas A&M won't play again until Saturday, while Vanderbilt will face Alabama on Friday in an elimination game.
Dansby Swanson hit his 12th homer of the year in the fourth inning that accounted for the Commodores' only run. Vanderbilt's Carson Fulmer (11-2) took the loss, giving up six runs in five innings. He gave up three homers.
