Texas A&M baseball is still alive in the NCAA Tournament, thanks to a wild comeback victory this afternoon.
The Aggies trailed host West Virginia 9-1 at one point in a game that was delayed at different times due to weather. When the dust settled, A&M emerged with an 11-10 walk-off win to avoid elimination.
Bryce Blaum was the final hero, belting a game-winning, walk-off grand slam with two outs and two strikes in the bottom of the ninth inning.
That’s the type of situation you dream of as a kid. To actually have it happen to you and to come through how Blaum did is a once-in-a-lifetime achievement.

With the win, Texas A&M moves on to face Duke tonight. The Aggies suffered a loss to the Blue Devils in the opening game of the Morgantown Regional on Friday night.
If A&M beats Duke tonight, the two teams will square off tomorrow afternoon with a Super Regional berth on the line.
We’ll see if the Aggies have any more magic left.
