The Georgia Southern University baseball team returns to Statesboro on Wednesday to complete a home and home series with the Citadel after playing in Charleston on Tuesday.

The Eagles are preparing to regroup this weekend when Sun Belt play continues. The team dropped their opening series to South Alabama this past weekend, and will travel to UT Arlington to face the Mavericks this weekend.

Freshman Seth Shuman gets the start on the mound for the Eagles Wednesday. Shuman comes off of his last midweek start against Campbell, where he was brilliant, giving up only two runs on three hits in the win.

The Eagles come into this midweek series with a 3-1 record in midweek games, only losing to Georgia Tech.

Another bright spot for the Eagles in midweek games has been the offense. They have exploded for as many as 14 runs in these games, and have gotten at least eight runs in their past three midweek games.

Senior Ryan Cleveland also comes into the start of this series with a three game home run streak in midweek games, including a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning of a 9-8 win over Campbell.

Wednesday night’s game at J.I. Clements will be Military Appreciation Night, where all active duty and veterans receive free admission to the game and will be recognized on the field before the game. To add on to the appreciation, all food and drinks will also be free to military personnel at the game.
