Aggies complete sweep with Sunday victory

Junior right fielder Logan Foster had one hit, one run and one RBI.

Wearing the special red, white and blue uniforms – which were introduced in 2016 to honor Former President George H. W. Bush – Texas A&M completed the three game sweep of Fordham with a 3-1 victory.
Fordham was the first to strike in the top of the fifth inning. Fordham second baseman Jake Baker singled to right field, the Rams had a runner in scoring position, which prompted A&M right fielder Logan Foster to attempt to throw out the runner at the plate. However, junior catcher Hunter Coleman mishandled the throw, which allowed Nick Labella to score.
Coleman was shaken up on the play and was unable to return. Following the game A&M head coach Rob Childress said Coleman’s knee was bothering him and he was going to be monitored.
A&M responded In the bottom half of the fifth inning, the Aggies strung together a pair of hits which allowed Zach DeLoach — who led off the inning with a walk — to score, tying the game at 1-1. Will Frizzell then gave A&M the lead after flying out to left which drove in Bryce Blaum.
Childress said being able to fight back from the 1-0 deficit was crucial.
“That was a defining moment of the game right there,” Childress said. “We come right back with two, extend it again, and then had the chance to throw a knockout punch there in the seventh inning. We didn’t do that, but all-in-all, very proud of our team.”
DeLoach singled in the bottom of the sixth, to extend A&M’s lead 3-1. Following the game, DeLoach said it was a team effort to put together plays what allowed him to drive the third run. 
“We always harp on saying ‘Fly through the gas’,” DeLoach said. “We always want to drive the ball instead of trying to lift it, so I think that’s the big key we took away from today and just having the attitude and the aggression just to come out here and do that.”
Freshman Jonathan Childress had his first start on the mound. The left-handed pitcher went 4.2 innings, giving up one run on three hits striking out three and not giving up a walk. Following the win, Childress said he was happy to finally face another team and help contribute to the win.
Sophomore Christian Roa earned the win on the mound for the Aggies, coming out in relief of Childress. Roa struck out five of the 10 batters faced, didn’t allow a hit and didn’t give up a walk.
“It was fun. I was ready to get out there. We’ve been scrimmaging since the fall and I was ready to face another team,” Childress said. “It was fun to get out there. The fans showed out today, and it was a really cool experience.”
Texas A&M will return to Olsen field Tuesday at 6:30 to take on Prairie View A&M.
