Rob Childress previews A&M's midweek showdown with fifth-ranked Texas

March 30, 2021

Key notes from Rob Childress transcript

  • Playing Texas tonight at Olsen Field will be a lot of fun for both teams and the fans. I’m looking forward to the pitching matchup between Pete Hansen and Nathan Dettmer. We cherish every game we get to play, but the juices will be flowing on both sides tonight for sure.
  • Dettmer's best performance of his career was last week against Rice. It was important that he was able to come out of the bullpen this weekend and give us a shot to win. It was a real building block for him.
  • Pete Hansen is a guy who started slow and has not found his way back into the weekend rotation, but he keeps getting better. Offensively, Texas has a really good balance. They have some speed guys and a lot of guys who can punish you on the mound. I think the key is to limit their opportunities when they get in scoring position.
  • I was proud of our competitiveness this weekend against Georgia. We had some great relief performances. We didn't start well on Saturday but had a heroic performance out of the bullpen. You talk about pitching, but Kalae Harrison also had an outstanding day. It was unfortunate we didn't get the sweep because every game matters in this league.
  • After missing his start last weekend, Bryce Miller will be out for another week in COVID-19 protocol.
  • Hunter Coleman and Ty Coleman have both written their name in the lineup. They both understand what needs to be done, and they continue to work and have a great attitude. They are prepared for big moments.
  • Missouri plays very well at home. We will need to bring the energy and be the aggressor. The last time we were in Columbia was 2016 or 2017. The weather wasn't great, but we ended up sweeping them just because of the great attitude from our players. We will have to play our best to take care of business on the road.
