2011 Super Regionals: Aggies Beat Seminoles 6-2, Are One Win Away From College World Series

The Texas A&M Aggies kicked off the Super Regionals with a 6-2 win over Florida State Saturday, on the strength of a four-run seventh inning.

Pitcher Ross Stripling gave up two earned runs in seven innings on his way to the win, pushing his record to 14-2 for the Aggies, who are now just one victory away from the College World Series. Stripling worked hard in his seven innings, throwing 126 pitches, striking out eight and issuing only one walk.

Seminole pitcher Sean Gilmartin seemed to also be up to the task, as he and Stripling put zeros on the board in all frames of the second through fifth innings. The Aggies then had a four-run outburst in the seventh, which featured a two run single by Brandon Wood, an RBI double by Kenny Jackson, and an RBI single from Tyler Naquin. Then up 5-2, the Aggies added an insurance run in the eighth on a sacrifice fly.

The Aggies and Seminoles take the field again on Sunday at 3PM in game two of their three-game series. With one more win, Texas A&M would advance to their first College World Series since 1999.
