No. 2 Aggies Host Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Tuesday

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Fresh off a series win at Auburn to open SEC play, the No. 2 Texas A&M Aggies host system brethren Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in a midweek clash on Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park Tuesday. First pitch vs. the Islanders is slated for 6:34 pm.

The Aggies look to extend a 17-game home win streak and a remarkable 23-game midweek win streak. Both stretches have been tested lately. The lasts three midweek victories have been one-run decisions and the Aggies have won four of their last five home games by one run.

J.B. MOSS has been the straw that stirs the drink thus far on the season. He’s reached base in all 19 games he’s played in. The senior leads the team in batting average (.418), slugging percentage (.709), runs (27) and doubles (eight). Moss leads an offense that ranks fourth in the nation with a .341 batting average. The Aggies also rank sixth in the nation in triples per game (0.60), seventh in slugging percentage (.522), ninth in runs per game (8.6) and doubles per game (2.55) and 14th in on-base percentage (.415).

The Aggies have six other players hitting over .300, including BOOMER WHITE (.405), NICK CHORUBY (.344), HUNTER MELTON (.342), MICHAEL BARASH (.338), RYNE BIRK (.321) and JOEL DAVIS (.310).

On the pitching side, the Aggies lead the nation in shutouts (five) and rank fourth in strikeouts-to-walk ratio (3.70), fifth in strikeouts per nine innings (10.4) and 14th in WHIP (1.12). Tuesday night’s starter STEPHEN KOLEK has not allowed a run in 6.0 innings of work as a freshman.

The game will be available for viewing on SEC Network + with Will Johnson and Mark Johnson on the call.
