Texas A&M overcomes first hurdle
Texas A&M survived against Dartmouth, 4-3, on Sunday at the Coral Gables regional.
Kevin Gonzalez hit a solo home run in the top of the ninth to break a 3-3 tie. Joe Patterson's solo homer in the eighth had tied it for A&M.
Brodie Greene also homered for the Aggies. John Stilson pitched three innings of relief to pick up the win.
The Aggies are scheduled to return to the field at 3:40 p.m. CT to face Miami in another must-win game. The game will be televised on ESPNU. The host Hurricanes ripped A&M, 14-1, Saturday night to take control of the regional.
If the Aggies win this afternoon's game, the teams will meet again Monday night for a chance to advance to the super regionals. If Miami wins this afternoon, it advances and the Big 12 tournament champion Aggies are done for the year.
