Ryan Prager took a no-hitter into the seventh inning while leading No. 3 Texas A&M to a 5-1 victory over No. 2 Kentucky in the Men’s College World Series on Monday in Omaha, Neb.

Prager (9-1) wound up throwing 6 2/3 shutout innings as the Aggies (51-13) moved within one victory of advancing to the best-of-three championship. He yielded two hits, a walk and a hit batter while striking out four.

The Wildcats (46-15) took their first loss of the double-elimination portion of the MCWS. They will oppose Florida in an elimination game on Tuesday, with the winner advancing to meet Texas A&M on Wednesday. Either Kentucky or Florida would need to defeat the Aggies twice to reach the final round.

Ryan Nicholson broke up Prager’s no-hit bid when he singled to right with two outs in the seventh. Nolan McCarthy followed with a double before Josh Stewart replaced Prager and struck out pinch hitter Patrick Herrera to end the threat.

The game was scoreless until the sixth inning, when Texas A&M’s Hayden Schott hit a two-run single, Ali Camarillo had a two-run double and Kaeden Kent delivered an RBI single for a 5-0 lead.

Nicholson broke up the shutout bid when he homered with one out in the ninth inning off Stewart.

Schott finished with three hits, while Kent, Jackson Appel and Ted Burton had two hits apiece for the Aggies.

Nicholson collected two of the Wildcats’ four hits.

Kentucky starter Mason Moore (9-4) gave up four runs on five hits, three walks and a hit batter with three strikeouts in five innings.
