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.
