MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The bats finally came to life for the Aggies as Texas A&M staved off elimination, for now.
No. 2-seed Texas A&M beat No. 4-seed Fordham 11-2 on Saturday in an elimination game at the NCAA Baseball Tournament Morgantown Regional.
The Aggies scored five runs in the first inning of the game and didn't allow a Fordham run until the sixth inning, at which point it was 8-1, A&M.
Those five runs put the Aggies at nine runs in two innings after scoring four during their half of the ninth inning Friday, noteworthy, because A&M was shut out in its final two games at the SEC Tournament.
With the win, Texas A&M will face the winner of No. 1-seed West Virginia and No. 3-seed Duke (6 p.m. CT Sat.) at 11 a.m. CT Sunday. The winner of Sunday's elimination game will play in the Regional Final at 5 p.m. in the double elimination bracket.
