The Texas A&M Aggies leapfrogged Texas in both the Big 12 standings this week as well as the Baseball America national poll. Coming off a three game weekend sweep of Kansas, A&M moved up to 6th in the polls, while Texas now sits at 8th. Oklahoma fell one spot to 10th, while Baylor is 19th this week.
The Missouri Tigers battled not only the Oklahoma Sooners, but the elements this past weekend in Columbia. Mizzou split two games Friday with OU, falling in the first game while upsetting the Sooners 2-1 in 11 innings in the nightcap. With two outs and a tie game in the bottom of the 11th, second basemen Eric Garcia singled to left, scoring Jonah Schmidt, to give the Tigers the exciting win. Missouri got excellent pitching from Matt Stites and Phil McCormick as they only gave up 1 run on 8 hits.
Missouri is at Texas State this evening, and then onto Austin to face the Texas Longhorns Friday through Sunday.
Kansas struggled over the weekend, going 0-3 on the road taking on Texas A&M. The Jayhawks best game of the weekend was Friday when they lost a 10 inning game 2-1. T.J. Walz was great for KU, tossing 7.1 innings and allowing just 1 run on 4 hits, while striking out 10.
Today Kansas visits the Missouri State Bears before coming back home to Lawrence to host Baylor over the week. Check out all things Jayhawk baseball here.
