The Aggie baseball team kept their regular season championship hopes alive last night winning 3-1 in San Jose. Hawai'i lost to Nevada last night eliminating them from regular season championship contention, however, the Aggies need Hawai'i to win tonight (along with an Aggie win) to keep the Aggies' regular season championship hopes alive. A Nevada win would give them the outright regular season title. The Aggies still would have plenty to play for since a sweep would give them the 2-seed and a first round bye in the WAC tournament next week.
Last night Aggie ace Ryan Beck was outstanding throwing seven and two-thirds innings of three-hit baseball. He gave up a solo home run but for the most part managed to stay out of trouble. The Aggie defense played flawlessly behind him and that level of clean baseball will be important not only the rest of the weekend but into next week in the WAC tournament and into a potential regional the following weekend.
Today's game is scheduled for a 2:00 p.m. (MDT) first pitch.
