Baseball set for road battle with Tech

 NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Fresh off its road series with Alabama, the Lipscomb baseball team returns to action Tuesday at Tennessee Tech for a 3 p.m. tilt at Bush Stadium at Averitt Express Baseball Complex in Cookeville.

The Bisons (8-4) hosted the Golden Eagles (6-7) last week in a rain-soaked that game Lipscomb won 7-1 behind the arm of pitcher Jaesung Hwang.

The redshirt junior gave up an early home run in the second but quickly settled down to sit Tech down in order six times. Hwang tossed seven frames and gave up the lone run on four hits. He struck out a career-high tying seven batters and did not issue a walk.

Tennessee Tech opened up conference play this past weekend and dropped 2-of-3 to Morehead State.

Chase Chambers (.357) leads a group of four Golden Eagles batting over .300. Eight of Tech's players have five-plus RBIs this season, led by Dylan Bosheers and Ryan Flick’s 15 apiece.
