Aggie baseball is on quite a roll, and that roll continued Saturday as Texas A&M defeated Seton Hall 6-3 on day two of the NCAA Regioinal.
With the score tied at three in the top of the sixth, third baseman Adam Smith stepped to the plate against Joe Dirocco, who was 8-1 coming into the contest. Smith smacked an estimated 388-foot two-run home run to put the Aggies ahead. The Aggies added an insurance run in the seventh when a double by Matt Juengel scored Krey Bratsen, who had reached on a fielder's choice.
Ross Stripling pitched a complete game for the Aggies, giving up only one earned run and striking out five on the way to improving his record to 13-2 on the season. The Aggies are now 44-18 on the year, and 2-0 at the tournament. They will await the winner of Sunday's early game between Seton Hall and Arizona. The Regional Championship game is scheduled to start at 6:35 Sunday night.
