The No. 3 Texas A&M Aggies look to keep the momentum of a weekend sweep going as they host the Abilene Christian Wildcats in a 6:34 pm contest on Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park.

Over the last seven games, Boomer White is batting .556 (15-for-27) with six runs, two doubles, one home run and five RBI.

The Aggies are 20-1 at home this season. The pitching staff owns a 1.73 ERA and is holding opponents to a .209 batting average at Blue Bell Park. Offensively, the Aggies are hitting .338 at home, paced by White’s .397 average. Melton has 24 runs, six home runs and 34 RBI in 21 games at Blue Bell Park.
