Texas A&M gets one final tuneup series before facing a juggernaut in LSU. While this is a less than stellar opponent, Nate Jones, the former big leaguer, is their director of player development. Colton Kucera is their hottest bat, sporting an average over .500. The junior Phoenix native has forced his coaches hand as he did not start on opening day. He currently rides a 6 game hitting streak and a 3 game multi-hit streak. Liam McFadden-Ackman is their biggest power bat sporting 5 of the 10 homeruns for the Norse.
Austin Bost is the name to circle for the Aggies, as he hopes to continue his red hot streak. Bost was named to the all-tournament team for the Shriners Classic last week after batting .500 with a home run. Look for Dettemer to have a bounce back game as well. Dettemer was roughed up in his last outing against a good Louisville lineup
