Freshman Nick Banks is heating up as the season wears on. Banks started the season with a .160 average (4-25) but has since raised his average to a team-high of .321. Banks has 27 hits including four doubles, a triple and a home run in 2014.
Cole Lankford is second on the team in batting average with a .306. Lankford is in the top five on the team in slugging percentage at .410, doubles with 8 and runs scored at 16. He also leads the team in hits (41), RBI’s (24) and total bases (55).
Sophomore right-hander Andrew Vinson has pitched 25 innings for the Aggies, allowing 14 hits and nine runs in a team-high 19 appearances on the mound.
The Aggies (19-14, 5-7 SEC) are 14-7 in non-conference games this year and own a 16-7 clip at home.
Following Tuesday’s single game against Prairie View A&M, Texas A&M will continue its SEC schedule Friday on the road against the No. 7 Vanderbilt Commodores. The three game-series is slated to begin at 6:30 p.m.
