Zach DeLoach and Logan Foster produced three hits apiece in a 14-hit attack Friday afternoon as the third-seeded Texas A&M Aggies scored seven runs runs in the fourth inning and rolled to a 10-3 victory over No. 2 Indiana in the NCAA Austin Regional.
Nine different A&M players got hits during a game played in 100-degree heat at Austin’s UFCU Disch-Falk Field, the home of the Texas Longhorns. DeLoach drove in three runs and Foster had two.
Luke Miller led Indiana with a pair of solo home runs against the A&M bullpen.
But the Hoosiers never got into any sort of rhythm offensively against Aggies lefthander John Doxakis, who struck out a career-high 12 in six innings. Doxakis earned the victory by yielding only one hit and one run, which was unearned.
The Aggies broke the game open in the fourth against Hoosiers starting pitcher Johnathan Stiever.
They sent 10 batters to the plate and stroked six hits, including two by DeLoach, who led it off with a single up the middle and later cleared the bases with a triple to center field.
With the victory, the Aggies stayed in the winners’ bracket in the four-team regional and set themselves up to play against either the host and No. 1 seeded Longhorns or the fourth-seeded Texas Southern Tigers.
UT and Texas Southern played later Friday.
Texas A&M 40-20
