A&M finishes another sweep

Four teams have tried, and four teams have failed.
The No. 17 Texas A&M baseball team continued their undefeated season at Blue Bell Park with a 5-2 victory on Sunday against Penn State.
A&M (7-0) began the series on a windy Friday evening with a 9-3 victory and then continued their winning ways with a convincing 15-2 win Saturday. Aggie head coach Rob Childress spoke about junior Grayson Long’s competitiveness in his Saturday start.
“He kept it together,” Childress said. “I think that was in the back of his mind going into today. Once he got into the fight I felt like he was more competitive and stopped worrying about being perfect and he just competed. That’s one of his strengths. I saw a lot of the old Grayson in last four innings.”
The Aggies kicked off the scoring on Sunday with a two-run homer from infielder Logan Taylor in the bottom of the 2nd inning. That was the 12th homerun that the Aggies hit this season. A&M didn’t hit their 12th homerun until the 34th game of last season.
Junior Matt Kent pitched 6.2 innings, only allowing eight hits and two runs while accumulating six strikeouts. The Aggies pushed the lead to 5-2 with an RBI single from Nick Banks.
A&M will go for their eighth straight on Tuesday with a visit from Houston Baptist University. First pitch begins at 6:30 p.m.
