HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - John Doxakis carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning and Texas A&M beat Auburn 4-2 on Thursday night in the Southeastern Conference Tournament.

The Aggies (39-19) move into the semifinals while Auburn (39-20) faces Mississippi on Friday in an elimination game.

Doxakis (7-5) didn't allow a hit until Jay Estes' infield single to lead off the eighth. He struck out 10 and didn't walk anybody but did hit two batters.

Conor Davis brought Estes home with a double to center field.

Closer Nolan Hoffman then earned his 14th save, allowing an unearned run in the ninth.

Zach Deloach went 3 for 3 with two RBIs for Texas A&M, which took a 3-0 lead on Braden Shewmake's two-run double in the sixth.

Auburn ace Casey Mize (9-5) pitched into the eighth in his third straight loss. He is projected as a possible No. 1 overall draft pick.
