TCU Horned Frogs eliminate Texas A&M Aggies at 2017 College World Series


He gave up five hits and an earned run.

And there has been a lot of memorable moments.

He set the Cougars record with 3,207 yards receiving from 2000-12.

They call him "Big Game Howie". At the plate, McKay is hitting.340 with 17 home runs and 56 runs batted in, all second most on the team. They competed in a 15-inning marathon this season. "It's more fun. It's fun to go out there and compete with your back against the wall". Sean Wymer threw two flawless innings to earn the save. The Aggies still lead the all-time series 162-94-4.

Howard and the Horned Frogs had the Aggies on the ropes from the opening pitch.

Louisville (53-11) managed just one run and six hits, and struck out nine times, against Brady Singer (8-5).

No. 6 overall national seed TCU faced down Texas A&M in the early session, 4-1, and the Aggies end a rather fantastic tournament run that began with them upending the Houston regional hosts.

"Very proud of our guys (after) finding themselves down 5-0 after two", A&M coach Rob Childress said.

"You know, he's really good". TCU pitcher Brian Howard had no problem in this situation en route to his 12-strikeout showing against Texas A&M. His previous 12 strikeout game was May 26 in the Big 12 Conference Tournament when he threw a complete game shutout against Kansas.

Howard said he probably had the best stuff he's had all season on Tuesday, and it showed. "I'm pumped I didn't walk anybody - I didn't give up any free bases", Howard said. I just want to execute pitches down at the bottom of the strike zone and use my frame to get weak contact.

George Janca started the eighth off Howard with a double that one-hopped the wall in dead center field, but Sean Wymer relieved Howard and proceeded to throw two ideal innings to garner his second save of the season. A week ago, he threw 7.1 stellar innings and struck out 11 against Missouri State in a super regional to send the Horned Frogs to Omaha.

Instead of going to the nation's leader in saves, Durbin Feltman, Schlossnagle stuck with his most reliable reliever. After moving to second on a sacrifice bunt by Taylor, Summers scored on Fitch's two-bagger down the left field line. "It was pretty special".

Lousiville loaded the bases with one out in the sixth inning.

TCU shortstop and Millard West graduate Ryan Merrill did what every baseball player that grew up in Omaha dreams of doing: hitting a homerun in the College World Series.

"I've gotten a lot more comfortable out of the bullpen with runners on", he said.

"As soon as I saw it leave, that's when it just hit me how cool that experience is", Merrill said. The Allen clan will follow them right back to Omaha, he said.

For the TCU-Louisville victor, the assignment is beating Florida twice. Right fielder Colin Lyman, a Huntley graduate, had a run-scoring single in the inning and finished 2 for 4 with an RBI and two runs scored. Kaylor Chafin was stellar in relief.

One of the challenges for both sides will be handling the pressure of playing in an elimination game.

Sam Bordner and Lincoln Henzman no-hit Texas A&M over the final four innings of an 8-4 victory Sunday at TD Ameritrade Park that put the Cardinals in the winners bracket for the first time in school history. For the third straight year, TCU eliminated A&M from the postseason. They went on to host lovable underdogs Davidson in the College Station super, but the Wildcats had nothing to offer in the way of wins.

The 6-foot-7, 230-pound McClure had kept the game close until there were two outs in the fourth.

Current A&M junior Kaitlyn Burnes drove through the night on Friday with her mother, Lisa, to make both of A&M's College World Series contests.
