NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Lipscomb baseball team returns home Friday night to start a three-game Atlantic Sun Conference series with Northern Kentucky at Ken Dugan Field at Stephen L. Marsh Stadium.

Friday’s first pitch is set for 6 p.m. between the Bisons (24-18, 12-6 A-Sun) and the Norse (12-16, 7-8 A-Sun). The series continues on Saturday at 6 p.m. before wrapping up on Sunday at 1 p.m.

The Bisons will be looking to right the ship after dropping a 13-3 decision to rival Belmont Tuesday night at E.S. Rose Park.

Northern Kentucky is coming off a two-game split with Xavier earlier in the week.

This will be NKU’s first-ever trip to Lipscomb in baseball. The two teams have met just once in the series history when the Bisons swept the Norse in three games last season in Highland Heights.

Friday night and Sunday afternoon’s contests will air on http://www.ASun.TV.  To purchase tickets logon to http://www.LipscombTickets.com
