The Aggie softball team has a big week on tap as they play SIX games versus ranked opponents this week. They host No. 4 (polls pending) Arizona tomorrow night for a doubleheader. The Aggies have faced the U of A each of the past two seasons. They nearly upset the Wildcats two seasons ago in Las Cruces but did not fare as well in Tucson last year getting shut out of both games (including a no-hitter from Kinzie Fowler in the first game).
The Aggies also host No. 18 Nebraska for four games this weekend before WAC plays starts next weekend. The Aggies swept a pair of games from the Huskers last season to start the year.
We'll have more on these two matchups later today from Coach Rodolph.
The Aggie baseball team dropped three games this weekend against some good competition losing twice to VMI and once to Oregon State (the second game was cancelled due to inclement weather). The Aggie starting pitchers pitched well on the weekend allowing just six earned runs in the three games, however, the Aggies left 21 runners on base and had just 11 hits in three games. The Aggies also committed four errors against Oregon State and two in the second game against VMI, a 5-0 loss.
The Aggies will have a good chance to get back on track this weekend as they host IPFW (Indiana University-Fort Wayne) this weekend for four games. The Mastodons are 2-6 on the season with a win against Arkansas-Little Rock and Murray State.
