The Aggies took a 3-2 victory on Saturday from the Cougars of Houston in Day 2 of the Houston College Classic. They were led by strong pitching performances from Kyle Theabeau and Jordan Chambless. Theabeau started the game for the Aggies by pitching 5.1 innings of baseball and letting up only one earned run in the sixth inning. He was replaced by Micheal Heard who lasted 0.1 innings with runners on second and third and one out. He proceeded to get Josh Stimeman to ground out to third to get his only out. Chambless came in and struck out Luis Flores to end the threat. Chambless finished the rest of the game off for the Aggies by giving up a solo home run in the eighth inning for the only run allowed. He struck out six out of the eleven batters he faced today. On the season, Chambless has struck out eleven batters in five innings of work. Houston was led by a good start from Donnie Joseph who gave up an unearned run in five innings. Both teams will be in action on Sunday with Houston facing Arizona State and A&M facing Rice.
