Texas A&M baseball rolls in midweek and weekend matchups, keeps finding new ways to win

This Texas A&M baseball team, unlike several other of the athletic programs on campus during this school year, has yet to disappoint fans. The Aggies are still undefeated, and are doing it in several different ways, showcasing their versatility.

A midweek game against Incarnate Word was an easy victory for the Aggies, who led wire-to-wire en route to a 9-3 win. The bats showed out again, further highlighting the talent of the young prodigy out of Katy, Jace LaViolette, as well as the freshman Gavin Grahovec.

The Ags continued cruising into the weekend matchup with the Wagner Seahawks, which was another sweep in favor of the Maroon and White. The first game was a noncompetitive affair; after Wagner elected to not put a run-rule in place, the Aggies took full advantage, plating 17 runs and allowing only 2. It was the second game that was the most competitive of the weekend: Texas A&M baseball only got two across the plate in a nail-biter that ended in a shutout day by the Aggie pitching staff.

What a turnaround from last year by these arms for the Ags! New pitching coach Max Weiner is already a fan favorite due to the transformation he has worked in this offseason. Getting stud pitcher Ryan Prager back after he missed all of the past season is huge too, and the Aggies hope that the men on the mound can keep this up when conference play strikes.

The dominant arms were shown off again in the final game of the sweep. The run-rule was in effect, as the Aggies put up even more of a fireworks show than they did on Friday. The final score was 21-2 in only seven innings, securing the Aggies’ seventh win in seven games.

This also was a landmark game in the career of Aggie skipper Jim Schlossnagle, who notched his 900th career victory on Sunday. It’s been one heck of a ride for Schloss already, and he’s just getting started down in College Station.

Next up for the Aggies is a midweek game against Lamar tomorrow evening. This weekend, they travel to the home of the World Series Champion Texas Rangers, Globe Life Field, to face off with some PAC-12 foes as a part of the Globe Life Classic. These will be their first games against power competition this year.
