UT-A&M: Both teams show their stuff

By Glenn Tanner - May 18, 2007

Both UT and A&M did what they do best in the first inning, and after one, the Aggies lead 2-1.

In the top of the inning, Kyle Russell hit an absolute no-doubter that almost cleared the train tracks behind the right field wall.

In the bottom half, Texas A&M ran wild. Brandon Hicks led off with a single, then immediately stole second. Ben Feltner laced single to center to score Hicks and took second on the throw home. Then he stole third without a throw and without a slide. One out later, Luke Anders drove him home with a single.

Pre-game featured more great rivalry stuff. Texas players (and fans) always remain standing after the national anthem to sing "The Eyes of Texas." I couldn't hear a lick of it tonight, though, because the A&M student section whooped, hollered, and pounded on the metal seats, creating an incredible din.

This is going to be reeeeeally fun.
