Texas A&M baseball team accomplishes something that hasn’t been done in over a century

The Texas A&M baseball team officially began the 2024 season this weekend and it couldn’t have gotten off to a better start.

The Aggies (3-0) swept McNeese State at Blue Bell Park to kick off the campaign. Texas A&M outscored the Cowboys 31-1 over three games and accomplished history in the process.

According to Kyle Stafford of Texas A&M Athletics Communications, the pitching staff allowing only one run through the first three games is the fewest in program history since 1918. The Aggies won 15-0 on Friday, 6-1 on Saturday and 10-0 on Sunday.

Ryan Prager earned the season-opening win by pitching 5.0 innings, allowing 1 hit and 1 hit by pitch with 9 strikeouts. Isaac Morton and Brad Rudis each pitched 2.0 innings in relief.

Brock Peery took the win on Saturday after pitching 0.2 innings of relief without giving up a hit, walking one batter and striking out another. Justin Lamkin got the start and went 3.2 innings, allowing 2 hits, 2 walks and 2 HBPs with 6 Ks.

Evan Aschenback gave up the lone run of the weekend, pitching 2.2 innings in relief, allowing 3 hits with 4 punchouts. Zane Badmaev earned the save by pitching 2.0 innings in relief of Peery, giving up 1 hit and 1 walk with 3 Ks.

Shane Sdao started on the bump Sunday. He pitched 5.0 innings, allowing 4 hits and 1 walk with 5 strikeouts. Luke Jackson allowed 2 hits in 1.0 inning pitched. Peery (0.2 IP) and Josh Stewart (0.1 IP) each tallied 1 K in their respective appearances. The series finale ended after seven innings due to the run rule.
