Eagles Baseball continues Sun Belt play against ULM

Donald Coe

Georgia Southern returns to J.I. Clements Stadium this weekend for a conference tout with the ULM Warhawks.

A series like this can shift the season momentum for the Eagles as they enter with a 3-3 record in conference. This series will determine whether the Eagles continue with a winning record or a losing record in conference.

The Eagle freshmen continue to amaze, leading the team in batting average. Steven Curry enters this week with a .347 average, Mitchell Golden with a .337 average, and Mason McWhorter with a .321 average.

The ULM Warhawks come into this series with a 3-3 conference record as well, but with the worst overall record in the Sun Belt.

The Warhawks are coming off a home series win last weekend against Little Rock, which also has one of the worst records in the conference.

The ULM pitching staff has struggled this season, having a combined ERA of 6.04 as a team, and opposing hitters have a combined batting average of .303 against this pitching staff.

The Eagles enter this series sitting in a tie for third in the East Division of the Sun Belt behind South Alabama and Coastal Carolina. Chasing down two of the best teams in the conference will not be easy, but this is the series to begin that chase, playing one of the bottom feeders in the conference.

The Eagles will play Friday and Saturday at 6:30 p.m. and on Sunday at 1 p.m.
