JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (May 5, 2005) - East Tennessee State travels to Charleston, S.C. this weekend to face The Citadel in a key Southern Conference weekend series from Riley Park. Friday and Saturday night's games will begin at 6 p.m. while Sunday's first pitch is set for 1 p.m.

            The Bucs (26-14, 11-12 SoCon) have won seven out of their last 10 games after snapping a three-game losing streak Tuesday against UNC Asheville.
