The #5 Texas A&M Aggies defeated the #7 Texas Longhorns in the elimination game Sunday afternoon at the College World Series on Charles Schwab Field Omaha.
The Aggies erased a 2-0 deficit in the 2nd inning with a four-run rally, sparked by Austin Bost’s leadoff double. Brett Minnich plated a run with a double and Jordan Thompson tied the game with an RBI single. Trevor Werner gave the Aggies their first lead of the CWS with a two-run left-center on the 11th pitch of the at-bat.
The Maroon & White tacked on four runs in the next three innings to stretch the advantage to 8-2 after five frames. Micah Dallas (7-3) earned the victory, yielding two runs, one earned, on six hits and two walks while striking out three in 5.0 innings. Jacob Palisch and Brad Rudis came in as relief recording seven strikeouts in a combined 4.0 innings pitched.
With the victory, the Aggies snapped a nine-game losing streak in the College World Series. Texas A&M’s last win in Omaha was their opening game of the 1993 CWS against Kansas. The Maroon & White continued to display their resilience defeat, improving to 18-1 the game after a loss in 2022.
Up next, The Aggies will take on the loser of the Notre Dame vs. Oklahoma game on Tuesday at 1PM. Aggie head baseball coach Jim Schlossnagle, Jordan Thompson, and Micah Dallas all met with the media postgame following the win.
