Baseball in the rain wasn't as fun as I hoped it would be.

OMG IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD. Okay, so there was about 10 minutes of sulking and freak out at the end of the 2-3 loss for the Aggies yesterday against Miss. St., but we all calmed down after that when we remembered that 3 losses still make the Fightin' Texas Aggie Baseball team the best in the country. The Bulldogs played a good game and the Aggies just made too many mistakes to gain back a lead. Series closes today at 1:05 PM on SEC Network+.

WAIT. WHAT? SAY THAT AGAIN. In the Dallas Morning News article by Kate Hairopoulos, she seems to have buried the lede on the future of Aggie/Longhorn baseball matchups. "They [Aggies] are hopeful of hosting a regional — and if they win, a super regional — and getting back to Omaha for the first time since 2011. They fell in the Houston Regional last season, to Texas, which A&M will begin playing once a year starting next season." Oh, hey look at that. Lead with that next time. It would be good to see some 'sip action that is actually played under regulations instead of on petty message boards and transitive "wins".

SPLIT WEATHER AND SPLIT DOUBLE HEADERS. Aggie softball made a nice little comeback in their first game with Auburn yesterday with a 12-4 win over the Tigers. Freshman Tori Vidales contributed two home runs in the 3rd inning bringing it up to 10 runs. Vidales wasn't done there. She scored her third home run of the day in the second game getting a 3-1 lead, but it wasn't enough. Tigers rallied during the second game with a 12-4 lead of their own. Aggies lose the series 1-2. Aggies' record stands at 32-12, 8-7 SEC. Next game is Wednesday against Lamar.

OH, YEAH THERE WAS SOME FOOTBALL YESTERDAY. After the incognito scrimmage yesterday, Coach Sumlin gave some comments about outlook for the next season. Kyle Allen and Julien Obioha also gave interviews, watch them here.
