'Star power guys': Texas A&M baseball coach Jim Schlossnagle reflects on series win vs. Auburn

Following a 12-8 win against Auburn to clinch a second SEC series victory in a row, Texas A&M head coach Jim Schlossnagle spoke to the media on Friday night.

The No. 4 Aggies (24-3, 5-3 SEC) were led to the win at Blue Bell Park against the Tigers by junior right-handed pitcher Tanner Jones (2-1).

"That was as good as he's pitched. The last game was pretty good, he had a cutter going a little bit, all three pitches for the most part and that's the deepest he's pitched," Schlossnagle said. "Remember that he missed most of the preseason so he is still kind of behind everyone else in terms of appearances and innings pitched. He did well against a good lineup and on a tough night to pitch."

The outfielder dynamic duo of junior Braden Montgomery and freshman Caden Sorrell led the way with 3 runs batted in, respectively.

"Those guys at the top, the star power guys, those guys are going to do their thing most days. The key is, can we get on base enough towards the bottom? Ali (Camarillo) had a great night. (Hayden) Schott has shown signs of coming back," Schlossnagle recalled. "Sorrell has been staying on baseballs the other way. That's a big sign for a good young player like that. I thought Targac's first at-bat was tough when he smoked a ball to center field but the game rewarded him finally down the left field line, so I'm happy for Ryan."
