Aggie bats come up big in mid-week win against Incarnate Word
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - The No. 15 Texas A&M baseball team recorded 14 hits and scored 13 runs to defeat UIW for its third consecutive win at Blue Bell Park on Tuesday night.
The Aggies (8-4) struck first by posting four runs in the first inning, started by a bases-loaded infield single by Trevor Werner that was followed by double down the left-field line by Kaeden Kent to clear the bases.
The Maroon & White scored in all but two available innings, but the Cardinals (6-7) didn’t go without a fight as they scratched across four unearned runs in the fifth and another in the eighth.
The Texas A&M offense was highlighted by Hunter Haas, who tied his collegiate career high with four RBI by hitting a pair of home runs and joining teammate Jace LaViolette as Aggies with multi-homer games this season. Kent also went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and four RBI.
In all, four Aggies recorded multiple hits in the midweek match up.
