Game Log: Texas A&M's Dettmer Delivers Seven Strong Innings In Win Over Notre Dame

Follow along through nine innings as Texas A&M keeps its hopes alive in the College World Series against Notre Dame

Two games down, three to go. That's the case for Texas A&M as it looks to make the College World Series final later this week. 

The Aggies fell short in a 12-8 loss to Oklahoma on Friday to kick off the CWS in style. Starter Nathan Dettmer struggled with his control against a potent Sooners' offense, allowing seven runs on four hits and three walks in 1 1/3 innings of work.

Standout Micah Dallas evened the Aggies' record against Texas in a must-win outing Sunday afternoon. Going five strong, the Texas Tech transfer allowed just two runs off six hits while striking out three Longhorns on the way to a 10-2 victory. 

The Aggies also tallied 10 hits and six walks to hit the double digit marker for the first time in Omaha, Neb. With the win, A&M breaks its 0-7 losing streak in CWS games since 1993. 

“We’ve had the same approach all season,” A&M outfielder Jordan Thompson said Sunday. “We just keep going, one pitch at a time. If we get a hit, great. If we don’t, we put a lot of pitches on the pitcher — (you) make him make pitches. And you just pass the bat along to the next guy behind you and have trust in him.” 

A&M is far from out of trouble yet as it must face Notre Dame for a shot at the semifinals. Link Jarrett's squad has been one of college baseball's most consistent offenses this spring, averaging 7.5 runs per outing. The Aggies are expected to start Dettmer, but could turn to the bullpen early once more with revelivers such as Joseph Menefee, Jacob Palish, Chris Cortez and Brad Rudis.
