Aggies juggle weekend rotation as Lacy serves suspension

BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -- The 19th ranked Texas A&M baseball team will be a little short handed against 4th ranked Arkansas as they wrap up the regular season.

Starting pitcher Asa Lacy will not be allowed to pitch against the Razorbacks as he serves out a four game suspension after being ejected from last Saturday's game against Alabama by home plate umpire Ryan Broussard after disagreeing his call of balls and strikes.

"It's certainly a big loss but it is what it is and we have a very deep and talented pitching staff and it's an opportunity for the next guy to step in and go do what he's capable of doing," said Texas A&M Head Baseball Coach Rob Childress.

"The next day he sent a message in our group chat and he even came out in front of all of us and he apologized for what he did. He should have thought about the repercussions before he did it but we all reassured him that we have his back no matter what happens and that he did the right thing there. It was a bad call, it was a big call that we needed. I don't think that he feels like he let us down anymore. He kind of felt that way that day and into the next morning but we let him know that we still have his back and that we still believe in him no matter what," added Texas A&M Pitcher Kasey Kalich.

With Lacy out here is a look at the Aggies starting pitchers this week against Arkansas.

John Doxakis will go in game two on Friday night to keep him on his normal rest schedule. Doxakis is 6-3 this season with a 1.93 ERA.

Christian Roa will get the ball in game three. He is 2 and 2 with a 3.49 ERA.
