No. 4 Texas A&M sweeps Wagner, has allowed fewest runs through 7 games in program history

After the Texas A&M baseball team had its first gritty victory of the season on Saturday, they left absolutely no doubt on Sunday afternoon to earn a second consecutive sweep.

The Aggies (7-0) remained undefeated to conclude the weekend, wrecking Wagner 21-2 in seven innings to earn their second straight sweep to begin the 2024 season. Texas A&M head coach Jim Schlossnagle tallied his 900th career win and 89th in College Station against the Seahawks (0-6).

Senior first baseman Ryan Targac led the way, going 3-for-5 with 5 runs batted in and 1 run scored. The Aggies scored 5 in the second frame, 4 in the fourth, 5 in the fifth and 7 in the sixth.

Junior right-handed pitcher Tanner Jones (1-0) earned the win by pitching 2.0 hitless innings with 3 strikeouts. Sophomore LHP Shane Sdao tallied 4 Ks without allowing a hit over the next 2.0 frames. In his second career performance, freshman RHP Isaac Morton allowed the only 2 runs in the fifth inning and gave up 1 hit, 2 walks and 1 hit by pitch with 1 punchout.

RHPs, seniors Brock Peery (0.1) & Zane Badmaev (1.1 IP), and junior Josh Stewart (1.0) recorded 1, 3 & 1 strikeouts, respectively, without allowing a hit. The pitching staff collectively allowed 1 hit and 2 walks with 18 Ks on Sunday.

The 8 runs that Texas A&M has allowed through the first seven games are the fewest in program history. The Aggies’ 8 home runs thus far are the most since 2000. The series finale was the fourth time this season that Texas A&M has racked up hits and runs each in double digits.

The Aggies will finish their eight-game homestand at Blue Bell Park to begin the campaign on Tuesday at 6 p.m. versus Lamar University of Beaumont, Texas.
