It’s been a less than stellar season for Texas A&M baseball, but easily the highlight so far was this past weekend as the Aggies took two out of three games from No. 12 Ole Miss at Olsen Field. And while baseball is one of the ultimate team sports, it’s not hyperbole to say that neither of those wins probably happen without first baseman Will Frizzell.
Frizzell had a whopping FIVE home runs on the weekend, including a walk off homer on Friday night and a go-ahead grand slam in Sunday’s win. The walk, as it turns out, was cheaper.
For his heroics, Frizzell was awarded the SEC Player of Week honors, to the surprise of absolutely no one.
Despite a down season, A&M still has a chance to make it into the SEC Tournament (the bottom two teams are left out), with a pivotal series coming this weekend at Auburn. The Aggies are currently occupying the final qualifying spot for the tournament, with Auburn one game behind them. A series win this weekend likely secures A&M’s trip to Hoover, and keeps their (albeit slim) hopes of extending their NCAA Tournament streak alive.
