Bisons and Bulldogs meet on the diamond for weekend set

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Lipscomb baseball team returns to the diamond this weekend for a three-game series with Alabama A&M. Friday’s first pitch at Ken Dugan Field at Stephen L. Marsh Stadium is 4 p.m.

Saturday’s game is slated for 2 p.m., while Sunday’s finale is at 1 p.m.

The Bisons (6-3) and the Bulldogs (2-8) have not met since 2014 when Lipscomb took an 18-5 decision at Dugan Field. Lipscomb leads the all-time series 2-1.

Lipscomb lost its four-game win streak Wednesday evening at Western Kentucky, when the Hilltoppers won a 6-0 contest that saw the Bisons have season lows in runs and hits (6).
