Texas A&M stays unbeaten with Houston Classic sweep

HOUSTON -- Texas A&M managed only three hits on Sunday against Baylor, but the Aggies made them count to hold off Baylor, 3-2, and remain undefeated.

The Aggies improved to 16-0 on the season, and joined LSU as the only teams to win all three of their games at the Houston College Classic at Minute Maid Park.

"A good weekend for us, it was a big week. We played well this week," Texas A&M coach Rob Childress said.

On Sunday, Mitchell Nau provided a two-run double in the fifth that increased the Aggies' lead to 3-0, and left-hander Matt Kent allowed two runs and six hits in 7 1/3 innings with nine strikeouts and only one walk.

"We did just enough to win," Childress said. "Matt was fabulous. Made some innings and outs disappear in a hurry, and we played pretty good defense behind him until the seventh inning, when we allowed them two runs and got them back in the game."

When Kent (4-0) left the game with one out in the eighth and runners on the corners, Texas A&M held a 3-0 lead. Hayden Ross and Logan Brown, who had two of Baylor's seven hits, scored in the Bears' two-run eighth.

All three of Texas A&M's hits were for extra bases. Logan Taylor doubled in the second and Nick Banks tripled in the eighth.

Blake Allemand, who walked three times and scored twice, scored in the first as the Aggies had three baserunners in the inning without a hit. Nau's one-out double in the fifth scored Allemand and Ryne Birk, who both walked.
