NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Fresh off its second series sweep of the season, the Lipscomb baseball team returns to action Tuesday when Tennessee Tech visits Music City for a 4 p.m. tilt at Ken Dugan Field at Stephen L. Marsh Stadium.

Over the weekend Lipscomb pounded out 38 hits and scored 28 runs in three wins over La Salle.

Outfielder Allan Hooker took mid-stage for the Bisons in the sweep, getting his first three career starts. The redshirt freshman finished the weekend 6-for-11 at the plate with two homeruns, two doubles, one triple, seven RBI and scored five runs.

Tennessee Tech (5-4) dropped two-of-three from Northern Illinois this past weekend.

David Allen (.321) leads a trio Golden Eagles with a batting average over .300. Seven of Tech's players have five-plus RBIs this season, led by Ryan Flick's 11.

TTU's head coach Matt Bragga earned his 300th career victory Saturday with a 14-2 win over Northern Illinois.
