COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The No. 3 Texas A&M Aggies look to continue a seven-game win streak Tuesday when they host the Texas State Bobcats in a 6:30 pm game on Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park.

The Maroon and White have a chance to make program history in the game. The Aggies have scored 10 or more runs in each of the last six contests. The school record string is seven consecutive games set in April 1985.

NICK BANKS highlights the Aggie offense. Named the SEC Player of the Week on Monday, he batted .526 with a .842 slugging percentage for the week as the Aggies went 4-0, including the first sweep of Mississippi State at Dudy Noble Field since 2010. Banks logged three doubles, one home run, seven RBI and six runs as the Aggies swept the No. 8 Bulldogs.

HUNTER MELTON is on a career-best 13-game hit streak. Over the span, he’s hitting .500 (27-for-54) over the span with 13 runs, five doubles, one triple, five home runs and 20 RBI. 

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