COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Was it beautiful baseball, not exactly. But, the Texas A&M found a way to win two of three at Alabama to pick up its first SEC series win since April 20th.

The offense is still not clicking on all cylinders, but we'll save that for another day. That's because the 19th ranked Aggies are set to face number four Arkansas this weekend without one of their best pitchers.

Starter Asa Lacy was ejected from last Saturday's contest at the Crimson Tide and per NCAA rules, Lacy will now be suspended four games.

The lefty leads A&M this year with seven wins and 115 strikeouts. To replace Lacy, head coach Rob Childress is calling on Chris Weber.

Also a lefty, Weber will get the start in Thursday's series opener.

4-0 with a 2.79 ERA, Weber also has over 60 strikeouts in just over 50 innings of work.

Normal Friday night starter John Doxakis will be on the mound for game two. Christian Roa meanwhile will start game three.
