Texas A&M, the No. 5 overall seed in the 2022 NCAA Baseball Tournament, faced elimination on Tuesday at the College World Series in Omaha.

In the other dugout was Notre Dame, a red-hot team that eliminated No. 1 seed Tennessee in the super-regional round.

Nathan Dettmer took the hill for the Aggies in the do-or-die game and he had a wonderful outing. In 7 innings, Dettmer struck out 6 Fighting Irish batters and left the game with the Aggies ahead 5-0.

However, the Irish started to claw back in the bottom of the eighth inning. They pushed a run across and were threatening again before a double play ended the threat:

After getting the leadoff runner on base to start the bottom of the ninth, Notre Dame had its runner picked off by Aggie relief pitcher Joseph Menefee.

That was the last threat the Irish mustered, as Menefee closed things out for a 5-1 Aggie victory.

Offensively, Trevor Werner had a solo shot for the Aggies to make it 4-0:

This hit that led to a Notre Dame error plated the first 2 Aggie runs in the top of the third inning. By the end of the third, it was 3-0 in favor of Texas A&M:

Next up, the Aggies advance to play Oklahoma with a spot in the championship series on the line. The Aggies will need to beat the Sooners twice in order to advance, as Oklahoma has yet to lose in Omaha.
