It was not easy and some of that Olsen Magic was needed, but the Aggies were able to get the win over Tarleton. Coming into the game on a five-game losing streak, Texas A&M (26-19) needed to find a way to get some momentum before heading into another tough SEC series. It took them until the end of the game to finally take the lead but they left Blue Bell Park with a 6-5 win over Tarleton.
After a quick opening inning with neither team scoring Tarleton broke the ice with a solo home run in the top of the second. The Aggies would answer back in the next inning scoring a single run off a Trevor Werner sac fly putting Jordan Thompson across the plate tying the game 1-1.
With only two inning left in regulation the Aggies finally grab their first lead of the game. Thompson hit a single and Travis Chestnut got walked to put runner on first and second base. Working a 1-2 count Hunter Haas blasted a pitch over the left field fence to take the lead 6-4.

The last inning was a serious nail biter and Coach Schlossnagle went through three pitchers. With one out the Texans loaded the bases then hit a single to pull within one. Tarleton had a golden opportunity to retake the lead late, but the Aggies spoiled that plan when the turned a double play to end the game.
