Undefeated in the NCAA playoffs, the third-seeded Texas A&M Aggies will play the Oregon Ducks tonight at Blue Bell Park in Game 2 of the best-of-three, Bryan-College Station Super Regional.

A win would send the Aggies to the College World Series.

A&M opened the NCAA tournament last week by defeating Grambling (La.), 8-0 and then beating Texas 4-2 in 11 innings and Louisiana, 9-4. With the regional title in hand, Coach Jim Schlossnagle’s squad earned a berth in the next round against the Oregon Ducks.

The Aggies opened the Super Regional by rallying for a 10-6 victory over Oregon on Saturday afternoon. Aggies star Braden Montgomery suffered a serious injury to his lower leg in the first inning and is expected to be out for the season.


Oregon 40-20
Texas A&M 48-13

Coming up

If Oregon wins tonight, a deciding Game 3 would be played on Monday. The time is to be determined.


In the wake of Montgomery’s season-ending injury, Texas A&M coach Jim Schlossnagle turned in a starting lineup for Game 2 of the Super Regional that included:

Jackson Appel at catcher, Jace LaViolette in right field, Gavin Grahovac at third base, Hayden Schott at designated hitter, Ted Burton at first base, Caden Sorrell in left field, Ali Camarillo at shortstop, Kaeden Kent at second base and Travis Chestnut in center field.

Shane Sdao is the starting pitcher.
