Tennessee baseball completes series sweep over Texas A&M
Tennessee baseball bounced back from a rough start to SEC play against Mizzou with a 3-game sweep of No. 12/21 Texas A&M. The Vols earned the series win Saturday in a comeback victory, topped with a walkoff sac fly.

Sunday was a little less dramatic. Tennessee downed the Aggies 9-6 behind a hot bat from Zane Denton to add to an overall great collective effort from the Vols’ bats. Denton, who hit in the 9-spot Sunday, drove in a pair of runs to increase the Tennessee lead to 9-3 with 2 outs in the 7th inning. That essentially proved to be the deathblow.
Sports betting in Tennessee officially launched on November 1, 2020, and many of the largest sportsbooks are live and operating in the volunteer state. Tennessee is only one of a handful of SEC football states with legalized sports betting.

The Vols used 8 total arms against the Aggies, with Drew Beam getting the longest stint to start off. He pitched 4.1 innings, allowing 3 runs and 2 earned runs.
Tennessee is now 3-3 in SEC play with a doozy on the schedule for next week. Tennessee faces off against a decent UNC Asheville club in its midweek game before travelling to Baton Rouge to face the 21-3 LSU Tigers.
