It was arguably not even an upset, and it was certainly nowhere near as seismic as the one the Aggies sprung on Alabama during the football season, but Texas A&M has ensured that it will stay around for at least a couple more days in its inaugural bow at the SEC baseball tournament.
The Aggies moved past Florida on a 6-3 score Tuesday, carried by Daniel Mengden's nine innings of five-hit ball. Just one of the three runs he allowed were earned, and while Mengden looked a little rusty early in the game, you can't argue with the results. (One of the Florida runs was truly bizarre, a combination of a wild pitch and a check swing that left players and viewers wondering what had just happened.)
The NCAA tournament impact of A&M's win is unclear. Florida is a bubble team that seems to be truly on the bubble, while most seem to say that TAMU's resume comes up just a little short. A few more wins like Tuesday's would probably fix that.
