Upcoming week of baseball is highlighted by visiting in-state rivals
After a road win in Huntsville, the Golden Eagles baseball team looks to add to the win column as they face in-state rivals Austin Peay, Tennessee and MTSU in the upcoming week.
To this point in the season, the Golden Eagles are 24-6 overall and 8-4 in the conference play.
The Golden Eagles hope their momentum from the Alabama A&M win will show in their weekend series against Austin Peay. The Governors meet the Golden Eagles on Friday in a big conference matchup for both teams. The Governors stand 10-19 overall in the season and 3-6 in conference play.
The last OVC matchup for the Golden Eagles was a series split against SIU-E on the weekend of March 30.
The Governors look to overcome their lack of experience with a young team as they travel to Cookeville. In their last OVC matchup, the Governors were unable to overcome their lack of experience and were swept by Murray State at home.
Probably pitchers for the Golden Eagles in the contest are the righties David Hess, Chris Chism and Austin Tolle.
Looking forward to next week, the Golden Eagles will battle the Tennessee Volunteers (19-8) in a greatly anticipated in-state rivalry game at their home field. Last year, the Golden Eagles were set to play the Volunteers in Knoxville. After a snow the day prior to game day, the Volunteers cancelled with reason that their field would not be ready. In the 2012 season, the Golden Eagles played in Knoxville beating the Volunteers, 5-1.
In the game against Alabama A&M, senior Zach Zarzour got things started for the Golden Eagles with a leadoff single. He would later score on a single by Thomasson.
The Bulldogs got on the board in the bottom of the third scoring on back-to-back doubles before junior Jacob Honea could get out of the inning.
Junior Dylan Bosheers' double in the top of the fifth gave the Golden Eagles a 3-2. The Golden Eagles would add two more runs, one on a wild pitch in the top of the sixth and another on a Zack Stephens' double in the ninth, scoring Jordan Hopkins, to take the game 5-2.
The first pitch off the Austin Peay series is at 6 p.m. on Friday at Bush Stadium. The Tennessee game is set for April 8 at 6 p.m. and MTSU is the following day at 3 p.m.
