COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Davidson's magical run through the postseason ended with a 12-6 setback at Texas A&M in game two of a best-of-three Super Regional Saturday evening at Blue Bell Park.
In addition to capturing their first-ever conference tournament crown in the program's 115-year existence, the Wildcats' claimed the Chapel Hill Regional before finishing with a record 35 wins.
With the victory, the Aggies advance to their sixth College World Series in school history.
Davidson (35-26), which trailed 2-0 early, responded with two runs in the bottom of the third and three more in the fifth to grab its first lead of the Super Regional, 5-2.
In the bottom of the sixth, Brett Centracchio made it a 6-2 game with the Wildcats' first home run of the tournament, the longest span without a long ball the entire season. 
After a scoreless seventh, Texas A&M (41-21) rallied with seven runs in the top of the eighth, including four with two outs, to retake the lead for good. The 'Cats looked to escape with a 6-5 lead, but a misplayed pop-up on the infield resulted in two runs and changed the momentum in the Aggies' favor. 
Five Wildcats finished with two hits each – senior Will Robertson, juniors Alec Acosta and Cam Johnson, sophomore Eric Jones, and freshman Centracchio.
Both of Jones' hits were doubles, as he notched three RBI during the contest and Centracchio's blast was his fourth homer of the season.
Junior Evan Roberts was outstanding on the hill through seven innings, while Robertson will exit Davidson with a 56-game reached base streak, the longest in school history by 12 games. 
The 2017 Wildcat seniors finish as the winningest class in program history.
