The “Boys of Olsen” scored in every inning, including an 8 run third inning. The Aggies scored at least 3 runs in all but one inning.

Of the 18 Aggies who got at bats, 11 of them got hits. The Aggies were lead by the usual suspects offensively. Will Frizell finished the night with 1 hit, which was the 2 run homer in the first inning. Logan Britt also left the yard, while racking up 3 hits on the night. Britt finished 3-4 on the night with 3 RBI’s and a double shy of the cycle. First year transfer Taylor Smith also left the yard on Wednesday night, when he absolutely annihilated a ball deep over the left field wall. Freshman catcher, Kimble Schuessler also contributed 3 RBI’s to the cause.
On the pitching side of things, Chris Weber picked up the win, going 3 innings while giving up one hit, while striking out 4. Will Johnston and Wyatt Tucker each gave up a run, but were otherwise flawless. Freshman Gabe Craig and Kobe Andrade split the final inning of work.
The Boys of Olsen got the scoring started in the first inning when Will Frizell launched his 5th homer of the year, a 2 run shot deep into the Brazos Valley night. This would put the Aggies up 2-0. The Aggies would then add another run on a double steal when Logan Britt stole home.
