BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The Lipscomb baseball team looks to wrap up its eight-game road trip on Wednesday when the Bisons travel to Nick Denes Field at Western Kentucky. The first pitch is slated for 4 p.m.

Lipscomb is coming off an Atlantic Sun Conference series at USC Upstate this past weekend where the Bisons took two-of-three.

The Bisons (18-11, 7-2 A-Sun) and the Hilltoppers (14-14, 4-5 Sun Belt) have already met once this season on March 5 in Nashville. Lipscomb got a 10-strikeout performance from freshman John Pryor and defeated WKU 10-2.

In Lipscomb’s NCAA era, it has faced the Hilltoppers 16 times, holding a 10-6 advantage in the series. The Diamond Bisons have won four straight over the Hilltoppers and are looking to sweep the series for the second consecutive season.


Probable starters:
Lipscomb – Jamie Young – FR – LHP – (0-1, 2.84 ERA, 6.1 IP, 6 K, 4 BB)
Western Kentucky – Ryan Thurston – FR – LHP – (0-0, 9.00 ERA, 5.0 IP, 4 K, 5 BB)
