Zags Take Sweep
- Gonzaga enters the Texas A&M series fresh off a two-game sweep at then-No. 23 Southern Miss last weekend.
- In a weather-filled trip, the Friday game was postponed to Saturday, making a doubleheader which the Zags won 4-2 and 10-8 (10). Sunday's game began and played into the fourth with USM leading 7-1, but weather caused a delay, which turned into a cancellation. The game officially went down as a no contest due to five innings not being completed.

Offense Coming
- Gonzaga has three straight games with at least 11 hits and scored in double figures in two of the last three.
- Designated hitter Mason Marenco got his first-career start against Southern Miss in the first game of the doubleheader and went 4-for-4.
- Then in the night cap, Gonzaga newcomer Guthrie Morrison went 4-for-5, to collect the second four-hit game of the day for a Zag.

Sullivan Continues to Mash
- Newcomer Ryan Sullivan hit three more home runs in four games at CSUN and one more in two games at Southern Miss to give him a team-best five on the season.
- He leads the team with a .357 batting average, .810 slugging percentage and on-base percentage of .438. He also has a team-leading 15 hits, 15 runs and 10 RBI.
- He hit .389 with a 1.000 slugging percentage at CSUN in four games, totaling three homers, six RBI and nine runs scored in that series alone.

Newcomers Stepping Up
- Along with Sullivan's big weekend at CSUN, Gonzaga newcomers Guthrie Morrison also stepped up. Sullivan joined the Zags from Iowa Western CC, while Morrison came from Edmonds [Wash.] CC.
- At CSUN, Morrison hit .375 with six hits in four games, knocking in three and scoring three times.
- He then went 6-for-9 against Southern Miss with two doubles, a triple and three runs scored.

New Closer
- Last weekend, Gonzaga head coach Mark Machtolf tabbed Alek Jacob with the closing duties, and Jacob responded by earning the save in both games of a doubleheader.
- He totaled 2.2 innings over the course of the two games, allowed zero runs, just three hits and struck out four.

Lights Out Legumina
- Casey Legumina, who returned to GU after being drafted in the 35th round of the MLB Draft last summer, is torching hitters with 24 strikeouts in 19.0 innings pitched across three starts.
- Against Southern Miss, he earned the win, going 7.0 innings with just two earned runs on three hits with seven strikeouts and two walks.
- He's allowed hitters to bat just .147 against him and has a 0.89 WHIP and 1.89 ERA on the season so far...
