Texas A&M baseball continues dominant stretch with third-straight series win; face off with 5th-ranked Vanderbilt at Blue Bell this weekend

This Texas A&M baseball team is getting more and more exciting as the weeks go on. It’s hard, as an Aggie fan, to not feel some measure of foreboding whenever you consider whether one of your teams can actually win a championship, but this team just keeps removing doubts.

Case in point, this past weekend’s series against the South Carolina Gamecocks. Carolina has had an up-and-down year, but came into the game ranked 22nd in the nation after a bigtime sweep of the Vanderbilt Commodores. 

The Gamecocks were ready to apply the same pressure to the Aggies in Founders Park, usually a great environment. The crowds were a bit lower this weekend, however—the Lady Gamecocks were competing for the NCAAW championship, after all—but it was still impressive to go on the road and take two of three, as the Aggies did.

They almost got the sweep, but Carolina eked out a one-run victory in the final game of the series on Sunday. For the most part, the Aggie pitching was dominant, and the fielding was outstanding—just take a look at this play from Caden Sorrell that earned the top spot on Sportscenter.

The Aggies are currently scheduled to play a game against the UTSA Roadrunners tonight, but that may change due to the weather. Things seem to be a go at the moment, however. This would be a nice midweek win, as the Roadrunners are a top-100 RPI team.

All attention, however, is on the upcoming weekend series with the Vanderbilt Commodores in Blue Bell Park. The ‘Dores come in ranked 5th in the nation, becoming the top team the Aggies will have faced by ranking thus far in the season after Florida’s drop in the polls.

This will be a real test for the Aggies. Emerging from this weekend with a series victory would be huge. Texas A&M baseball has only dropped a total of one home game this whole season, so the Commodores are the ones with a hill to climb there.

I expect the crowds at Olsen to be loud and raucous for this series. If you haven’t watched a game of Aggie baseball yet this year, this weekend would be a great time to start—it’s bound to be quite the matchup.
