MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Bryce Blaum was down to his final strike, as were the Aggies.

The bases were loaded.

Then, Blaum, with one swing, kept Texas A&M alive in the NCAA Baseball Tournament.

No. 2-seed Texas A&M beat No. 1-seed West Virginia 11-10 Sunday on a walk-off grand slam from Blaum in the bottom of the ninth inning.

West Virginia led the game up to that point, including a 9-1 lead before a 6-run Aggie seventh inning, led by a Logan Foster grand slam to right field.

With the win, A&M moves on to face No. 3-seed Duke at 6:30 p.m. CT Sunday in the Morgantown Regional Final. An A&M win forces a winner-take-all Game 7 at 3 p.m. CT Monday.
