Game 1 of the College Station Super Regional was marked by missed chances. The Aggies dropped a whopping 17 runners on base to Louisville’s nine, but the Cardinals went 4 for 20 at plate with runners on base and hit .182 with men in scoring position.

“We put together some offense early on, but we fell a bit flat there at the end,” Louisville coach Dan McDonnell said after the game. “That’s a credit to Texas A&M and the obviously talented open plan office they have.”
