College World Series 2011: Texas A&M Aggies vs. California Golden Bears

With the Texas Longhorns having been eliminated from the 2011 College World Series on Monday, the state of Texas is now down to one collegiate team alive in Omaha - the Texas A&M Aggies. The Aggies may not be around for long, though, as they are playing in an elimination game against the California Golden Bears on Tuesday afternoon.

The Aggies lost 5-4 against South Carolina on Sunday, despite being staked to a 4-0 lead after the top of the first inning. Texas A&M gave that lead right back, allowing the Gamecocks to score four times in the bottom of the first before a walk off hit won the game for South Carolina in the bottom of the ninth.

Like the Longhorns, the Aggies struggled to muster up offense, scratching out only four hits against South Carolina. Unlike Texas, though, the Aggies did manage to draw five walks against the Gamecocks.

The Golden Bears lost to Virginia 4-1 in their first contest of the College World Series. California is currently the lowest seeded team in the tournament, as they were just a No. 3 seed in the Houston regional round, before defeating fellow regional No. 3 Dallas Baptist in the super regional. 

First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m. CDT. Televised coverage can be found on ESPN.
