HUNTSVILLE- Sam Houston State will look to make some noise on the road when they travel to College Station to take on No. 6 Texas A&M in a doubleheader on Wednesday in a game to be aired on SECNetwork+.
Fans can get live updates via Statbroadcast or by following @BearkatsSB on Twitter. The games will also be aired on SECNetwork+ and on the WatchESPN app.
The Bearkats have had a slow start to the season as they have gone 3-9 through their first 12 games as they have faced stiff competition including the No. 1 squad in the nation Washington. Texas A&M has continued their success from last year’s World Series run to roll to a 12-2 start to start the 2018 season.
Wednesday will serve as the final homecoming for Bearkat head coach Bob Brock who spent 16 seasons at the helm of the Aggie program, winning 688 games and three national titles.
Sam Houston has been led by freshman Brooke Malia who has started 11 of the 12 games for the Kats boasting a team-high .324 average with three long balls. Sophomore Megan McDonald has also enjoyed a hot start to the 2018 season as she was the catalyst for the Kats lone win during the UTA tournament last weekend driving in three runs on two hits during the Kats 5-1 win against UT Arlington.
Sarah Hudek has started all 14 games for the Aggies and been the offensive leader boasting a .447 average through the first 14 games. Hudek has drove in seven runs through the first 14 games and launched one ball over the outfield fence. Tori Vidales has been the power hitter for the Aggies as shes already drove five balls past the outfield walls to help earn a .723 slugging percentage.
SERIES vs TEXAS A&M
This will be the 110th meeting between the Bearkats and Aggies with Texas A&M holding a 95-13 advantage in the all-time series. Sam Houston will be going for its first win over the Aggies since the 1995 season. Last year when the Bearkats traveled to College Station Sam Houston gave the Aggies all they could handle before losing 2-0.
