Game 2 – Texas A&M defeats Cornell 22-0

For what Texas A&M lacked at the plate offensively in Game 1, they more than made up for it in Game 2. The Aggies blasted by Cornell, scoring 22 runs on 29 hits while giving up no runs on thee hits to claim a 22-0 victory. More incredible than that, three days after Zach DeLoach hit for the cycle, sophomore Chris Andritsos decided to follow-up with a cycle of his own.

After having to sit out last year due to new NCAA transfer rules, Andritsos had been waiting for his opportunity to make an impact for Texas A&M. Andritsos went 4-for-6 at the plate, scoring three runs and racking up 5 RBI in the process. Sophomore Braden Shewmake had a strong performance as well, going 4-for-7 at the plate, scoring three times and adding 2 RBI.

After a rough debut on Opening Weekend, Chandler Jozwiak bounced back nicely with a strong five innings in which Jozwiak only surrendered two hits. The Aggies were then able to empty the bullpen and several new faces were able to make their Olsen Field debut.

Freshmen Asa Lacy and Jack Conlon each faced three batters and retired all three. Lacy struck out the side. Sophomores Jason Ruffcorn and Kyle Richardson gave up onecombined hit as they closed out the game for Texas A&M. As incredible as the offense was for the Aggies, the pitching staff performed just as well.
