Stilson who? Michael Wacha stepped into the ace spot, throwing six shutout innings in an 11-0 Aggie rout of the 4th seeded Wright State Raiders in the late game of the College Station Regional. Texas A&M touched up Raiders starter Michael Woytek for a six-run second inning and cruised from there. Matt Juengel’s three run homer was the big capper of that threat, and the Aggie DH finished the game 2-4 with three RBI’s. Catcher Kevin Gonzalez delivered a three-run homer of his own in the fifth to effectively put the game out of reach.
Wright State, who was third in the nation in batting average coming into the game, could manage only seven hits against Wacha and the A&M bullpen. Jake Hibberd led the way by going 2-4 with a double.
The Aggies will face Seton Hall in the winner’s bracket game, which will take place at 6:35 PM CT tomorrow. The Pirates shut out the Arizona Wildcats 4-0 in the early game behind Joe Prosinski’s complete game shutout and a rally off of Wildcats starter Kurt Heyer. The Wildcats and Raiders will tangle in the losers bracket, starting at 12:35 PM CT tomorrow.
