Texas A&M Vs. Texas Tech Baseball: Series Preview, TV Info And More

Texas A&M baseball 2012

The Ags will face off with Texas Tech in A&M's final home series in the Big 12, with ground to make up in the conference title race.

If No. 9 Texas A&M (32-13, 11-7 Big 12) is hoping to catch up in the Big 12 Conference standings race and win the league in their final season, they'll likely need to sweep Texas Tech (26-22, 5-13 Big 12) this weekend, as the Ags will be out of conference play against San Diego State next weekend.

Saturday's probable starter Ross Stripling will chase both A&M and Big 12 win records - the right-hander captured his 28th win last weekend at Texas, good for fifth place in school history. Stripling also ranks in fifth place for most wins in a season on the conference list, tied with Kyle Gibson of Missouri (2007-09) and Baylor's Steven White (2000-03).

On the offense side, Aggie right fielder Tyler Naquin remains the Big 12's leading hitter, entering the weekend with a .395 (70-for-177) batting average.
