Texas A&M-Hitting wise they are lead by SS/3B Braden Shewmake who hit .335 with 11 HR and 68 RBI and he is a freshman, also they get contribution from CF Nick Choruby who hit .325 with 33 RBI and 3 HR, also with 33 RBI is LF Walker Pennington who also has 4 HR but hits just .225, on the mound they are lead by Brigham Hill who is 8-3 with  and Stephen Kolek who is 4-4  do not be surprised to see Corbin Martin start instead he is 7-3 on the year.

Lousiville- The Cardinals are lead by 1B Drew Ellis who hit .367 with 20 HR and 60 RBI and P/DH Brendan McKay who hit .343 with 17 HR and 56 RBI and their pitching is lead by Brendan McKay who is 10-3 and Kade McClure who is 8-3, their closer is Lincoln Henzman with 16 saves.

Analysis-The Aggies have good pitching with just giving up 217 runs this season, their offense is decent but, not great by any means.Louisville on the other hand is an offensive machine that scored 452 runs a game, they can score well and their pitchers just gave 177 runs a game.On paper this game favors Louisville and their offense.

Prediction-It will not be a run away as the Aggies will keep it close but, they do not have the offense that Louisville does, Cardinals wins 6-3.

TCU- The Horned Frogs are lead by C Evan Skoug who hit .277 with 20 HR and 68 RBI with help from  2B Cam Warner who hit .292 with 5 HR and 49 RBI

Analysis- TCU has the better offense with the Frogs scoring 434 runs to the Gators 537, the Gators will need a great game from 17-0 Jackson Kowar to have a good chance, this game will be close

Prediction-The Gators and their pitching keeps it close, but, TCU scores late to win. 3-2 Frogs win.
