SQLPLUS equivalent at t-sql

Hi,
i am running following SQL at ssms which goes OK but I am not able to save output in a file. I wish to run this SQL and spool results in single file. This does work under oracle using sqlplus.

I think I can use sqlCmd .
Does it provide any formatting options?
How to pass a t-sql stmt file "a.sql" to run at sqlcmd?

a.sql-----
exec sp_spaceused test1
exec sp_spaceused test2
exec sp_spaceused test3
