#5 Texas A&M: 5, #12 Louisville: 4 – and now the Aggies are one win away from the 2022 College World Series.
Last night’s thrilling walk-off victory was the cherry on top of an electric atmosphere in Blue Bell Park which packed in over 6700 fans. The 12th Man was in full-force as “Ball 5,” “Ball 6,” “Ball 7” AND “Ball 8” chants echoed across the ball park and had Louisville on edge early on in the ball game.
After the Aggies averaged over 10 runs/game in the College Station Regional, we don’t apologize for winning a defensive battle in which 20 men were left on base, loaded bases were stranded four times, and the middle of the line-up – Rock, Bost and Targac – combined to hit 1-12 with 0 RBIs.
Look to see these three get back on track in Game 2 after their College Station Regional performances saw stat lines that included:
Rock, 7-13, 5 RBIs
Bost, 6-11, 7 RBIs
Targac, 5-12, 3 RBIs
There’s no promise that we’ll see these gaudy stat lines in Game 2, and unlikely heroes may be called upon again, but my money is on the offense to tally more runs as we find ourselves less than two-hours away from opening pitch.
With Blue Bell Park expected to be rocking once again, adrenaline won’t be lacking as this 2022 group looks to punch their ticket to Omaha in Saturday’s matinee. Buckle up, this should be another fun one!
