Here's everything you need to know about the Texas A&M Aggies.

Players to watch

  Braden Shewmake leads the Aggies with a .335 batting average and 68 RBIs this season.
Top hitter: Freshman infielder Braden Shewmake has become the Aggies' most dangerous weapon in only his debut season in College Station. Shewmake started 62 games and batted a team-high .335 with 28 extra-base hits. His 68 RBIs for the season are more than twice as many as any other teammate in the lineup. Shewmake is a modest 6-for-24 so far this tournament with three runs driven in.

Top starter: Junior righty Brigham Hill is 2-0 in this year's tournament with six earned runs in 11.1 frames. He limited Davidson to a single earned run on four hits in six innings of Game 1 in the super regionals. For the season, Hill has tossed a team-high 96.1 innings to a 3.18 ERA and an 8-3 record. He's the only Aggies pitcher with triple-digit strikeouts this season (107).

Top reliever: Junior Cason Sherrod has arguably the top talent in the pen with a mid-90s fastball in his arsenal. He's 4-1 with four saves and a 2.89 ERA and has five strikeouts in 4.2 innings (three appearances) of one-run ball this postseason. Paired with lefty Kaylor Chafin and some other quality arms, Texas A&M has depth when it comes to its bullpen.
