USA Baseball Faces Nicholls State On The Road This Evening
The Jags ended a five-game losing skid last Friday when they won the first game against Texas State en route to winning the weekend series 2-1 in San Marcos. They will look to build on that this week against the Colonels.
USA enters with a 15-16 record overall while Nicholls State enters with a 16-18 record after dropping four of their last five games including two of three against Northwestern State last weekend.
USA will start lefty Jared Gates (1-3) for the seventh time this season. He is 1-2 with a 0.74 ERA in his four night starts this year. He has 18 strikeouts and nine walks in 24 1/3 innings and is limiting opposing batters to a .138 batting average at night. The Colonels will start right-hander Ryan Deemes (1-2).
The game will get started at 6pm and can be heard locally on 105.5FM WNSP or worldwide on WNSP.com. A live video stream can be purchased through the Nicholls State website GeauxColonels.com to view online.
