Friday, April 03, 2009

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (April 3, 2009) - The ETSU baseball team is set to take on North Florida at Harmon Stadium in Jacksonville, Fla. in a three game series starting Saturday at 1 p.m.

 

The Bucs and Ospreys will play a doubleheader on Saturday with the second game to follow 30 minutes following the completion of the first game. The two teams will close out the series on Sunday at 1 p.m.

 

ETSU (13-12, 5-7 A-Sun) comes into the series having split its two midweek games as the Bucs defeated Tennessee on Tuesday 9-3 before falling to Tennessee Tech on Wednesday, 15-7. The Bucs are led offensively by senior Ben Allen (Kingsport, Tenn.) as he leads the team hitting .367 on the season. ETSU is 5-4 all-time against UNF.

 

The Ospreys (12-17, 6-6 A-Sun) dropped their only midweek game at Central Florida, 8-2. UNF swept Campbell last weekend on the road as they are currently on a five-game conference winning streak. North Florida is led by senior Brian Wilson who is hitting .360 on the year.
