Aggie baseball crosses off their first opponent

The Texas A&M baseball season had quite the start this weekend. A&M swept the Holy Cross Crusaders, and in just three games, the Aggies scored 41 runs.
Ronnie Gideon led the charge, ending the sweep with 11 RBI. He tallied just seven last year.
Game one of the series took place Friday night. Behind eight RBI from Gideon, the Aggies won 19-2. It was the most runs scored by A&M on opening day since 1989.
The Aggies scored 13 runs in the first three innings. A&M had three home runs in those first three innings, hit by Logan Taylor, Ryne Birk and Ronnie Gideon.
AJ Minter also had a good opening performance. Minter had seven strikeouts and zero earned runs in five innings on the mound.
Game two was not as one-sided as opening night. A&M and Holy Cross went back and forth in a game that included five lead changes. JB Moss and Blake Allemand were the standout players of the day.
Moss went 3-for-5 with five RBI in the game. Allemand went 3-for-4 with two RBI in the game. He also had a highlight reel dive to stop a Holy Cross hit from getting to the outfield, and ultimately ending a potential Crusader rally.
Game three was much of the same, as the Aggies won 6-1 behind junior pitcher Matt Kent.
Kent pitched for seven innings, only allowing four hits and zero earned runs, while also recording three strikeouts. Turner Larkins and Andrew Vinson came on in relief to finish the Crusader attack. Vinson struck out two of the final three batters to seal the deal.
Offensively, Ronnie Gideon led the team. His first inning three-run homer put the Aggies in the lead for the rest of the game, and by the end of the first ending, the scoreboard read 4-1.
Moss also contributed with his first home run of the season, a two run shot that gave the Aggies their 6-1 lead. Moss was 1-for-2 with 2 RBI in the win.
The win improves the Aggies to 3-0 on the season. A&M will keep their long homestand going on Tuesday night against Stephen F. Austin. First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 pm.
