Everything Coach Jim Schlossnagle had to say after the 7-4 win over Texas Southern

Texas A&M (13-0) was in trouble early but came up clutch late off the bats of a few transfers to defeat Texas Southern (4-10) 7-4 for a comeback win at Blue Bell Park on Wednesday night.

There was a lot of fingernail biting in the seats at Blue Bell as the night rolled on. Riding high off beating the Texas Longhorns the night before this was seen as another tune-up game. Coach Jim Schlossnagle has been around this game for a long time and he knows it can be very unforgiving at times. Even though this was a stressful game he sees it as a good learning opportunity for the squad.

“Winning is hard man and continuing to win in this sport is even harder and that’s what I just told the team like the game can’t be played with tension and as soon as we don’t score some runs early against you know in this game against Texas Southern tension, tension, tension and it’s a good lesson for us to learn”
