Caden Sorrell makes huge play to rob South Carolina of a homer against Texas A&M baseball; Ends up with top spot on Sportscenter Top 10

This Texas A&M baseball team has something special going. We knew coming into the year that the hitting was going to be a huge strength for this squad, but the pitching and fielding has surprised even the biggest Aggie fans with how stellar they have been.

Case in point: Caden Sorrell. Against the 22nd-ranked Gamecocks yesterday, he made a key grab in the bottom of the first to keep Carolina off the board.

Even that is underselling it. Look at the job he does on this catch as the Gamecock hitter is just inches away from going yard.

That's impressive. No, that's more than impressive—it's major league stuff from Sorrell. It was good enough, in fact, to end up as the top play on the Sportscenter top ten yesterday.

The Aggies ended up triumphing by a score of 6-3 in this one. Evan Aschenbeck delivered yet another sublime performance in relief to put the Gamecocks away and prevent them from making a run.

Texas A&M baseball will go for the sweep today in Columbia. A road sweep of a team as skilled as the Gamecocks would be massive, and will set up a huge showdown in College Station for next weekend when the top-5 ranked Vanderbilt Commodores come to town.

If the Aggies continue to field and pitch like they have been, it's tough to know whether they even have a ceiling. This is as talented and as skilled of a baseball squad as we've seen take the field in Blue Bell Park for quite some time.

Schloss made it to Omaha in his first year, and this year's team has their sights set squarely on that same goal. If they keep having guys like Sorrell step up and make this kind of play, odds are they will meet—or even transcend—that goal.
