COLLEGE STATION, Texas – An offensive explosion in the first two innings led the No. 21 Texas A&M Aggies to a 30-2 victory over the Prairie View A&M Panthers, in seven innings, Wednesday evening on Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park.

The Aggies plated their most runs since a 31-2 win against Westmont College in 1991. The tally came up two runs shy of the school record set in a 32-7 victory over SMU in 1936.

Texas A&M scored 10 runs in the first, 17 runs in the second, one in the fifth and two in the sixth, while pounding out 18 hits and drawing eight walks. The 27 runs after two innings was the most in school history.

This marks the fourth game in which the Aggies registered double-digit hits. Nine of Ol’ Sarge’s charges recorded a hit, five of which had multiple hits. Eleven Aggies recorded a RBI, seven of which had multiple RBI.
