TSU Baseball to Play in Montgomery

TROY, Ala. - The Troy State baseball team will begin a two-day swing in the city of Montgomery, Ala., on Tuesday, in which it will play Alabama State and Auburn on back-to-back days in Paterson Field.

The Trojans (9-4, 1-2 Atlantic Sun Conference) will square off against Alabama State on Tuesday at Noon and will host the seventh-ranked Tigers (16-2, 0-0 Southeastern Conference) on Wednesday evening at the historic ballpark.

TSU is coming off of its first A-Sun series of the season in which it lost 2-of-3 games to Belmont in Troy over the weekend. Prior to that, the Trojans were riding the school's best start since 1998 at 8-1.

Tuesday's game will be the first meeting between TSU and the Hornets this season but the 13th all-time. The Trojans have won the previous 12 meetings, including a 14-4 win in Montgomery a year ago.

On Wednesday, the Trojans will meet Auburn for the second time in eight days, with the Tigers taking a 4-2 win in Auburn on March 9. TSU starting pitcher and senior Eric Wikstrom allowed one unearned run on one hit, a bunt single, in five innings of work to take a 2-1 lead into the sixth, but the Tigers rallied for three in the bottom of the sixth to claim the win.

All-time, the Tigers lead the series with Troy State, 29-10, and have won the last three meetings. The Trojans last win came in Paterson Field on April 30, 2002. Wednesday will mark the fifth-consecutive season the Trojans and the Tigers have met in Paterson Field, with Auburn winning three.

Tickets for Wednesday's game can be purchased by calling the Troy State ticket office at 1-877-TSU-WINS.
