Texas A&M Ends Arizona Wildcats Baseball Season, 3-0

The Arizona Wildcats baseball team had a nice run and were just one game away from the super regional but were knocked out by Texas A&M in a game that was scoreless through eight innings. Arizona's starting pitcher Kurt Heyer did all he could but in the eight inning with two outs gave up a double and then a single to break the scoring seal on the game. The Aggies finished the win 3-0 and advance to face Florida State.

Texas A&M starter Nick Fleece went seven score innings and turned the game over to an eighth inning reliever Bryce Bandilla and and then closer Ross Striping got the save.

Five Wildcats were named to the All-Tournament team, including Heyer, Ortega, Mejias-Brean, Mejia and Rinard. The Aggies' Juengel was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player.

Arizona finished one victory shy of 40 wins for the season. A victory today would have put the Wildcats into the Super Regional Round for the third time in school history.

The Arizona State Sun Devils baseball team will face the Texas Longhorns in Austin, TX in the Super Regionals on Friday, June 10.
