Texas A&M baseball is as dominant as they have been in the past 100 years in series win over McNeese

Texas A&M baseball is off to a roaring start this year. Jim Schlossnagle's crew, of whom great things are expected this year, absolutely pasted the McNeese Cowboys this past weekend in their first series of the year. They came out of the gates hot with a 15-0 destruction, gutted out what eventually became a 6-1 decision with some late hitting, and run-ruled their opponent after 7 innings in a 10-0 Sunday game to complete the sweep.

Now, any baseball fan can simply look at those scores and recognize the dominance of the Aggies in this series. But, as Carter Karels of 247Sports reported last night, there's more to what went on this weekend.

I don't think any Aggie baseball fan doubted what the bats could do in this season. Returning a guy like Jace LaViolette (a top prospect for the 2025 MLB draft, in large part due to his ferocious hitting ability), and adding star transfer Braden Montgomery and highly-touted freshman Gavin Grahovec means that there are going to be some fireworks.

However, one thing that struck the Aggie faithful this weekend was the dominance on the mound. New pitching coach Max Weiner was a big offseason add after LSU poached Nate Yeskie from the Aggies, and it looked like his work was already paying off after only one series. Ryan Prager, Justin Lamkin, and Shane Sdao all looked top-notch in their starts.

Top-notch actually might be underselling it. How about historic?

That's quite the statistic. Aggie baseball is a perennially a strong program, so to see that this team has already achieved—albeit in a small sample size—a level of dominance that no other A&M team has in over 100 years is extremely impressive.

Like I said, this is an amazing start. Yet, it is still only a start. The Aggies will face off against UIW for a midweek game tomorrow before a series against Wagner this weekend. Then, they have one more midweek game vs. Lamar before they take off for the Globe Life Field Series up in Arlington at the home of the World Series Champion Texas Rangers. There, they'll face off against Arizona State and Southern Cal; not long after, they'll make a visit to Disch-Falk field (presented by Jack Moss) to face off against the Longhorns.

Long story short, Texas A&M baseball will have plenty of chances in the very near future to prove this wasn't a fluke. Count me as a believer.
