The Seattle University baseball team looks to continue its positive play when it hosts UC Davis for a three-game weekend series.
The Redhawks kicked off the week-long homestand with a 13-7 victory over Saint Martin's Tuesday. Several people made contributions to the victory both at the plate and on the mound as Seattle U has now won three of its last four games.
UC Davis comes to town for three games, starting Friday, March 15, at 3 p.m. for a doubleheader, and continuing Saturday, March 16, at 1 p.m. and Sunday, March 17, at 12 noon. The Aggies enter the weekend with a 7-10 record after losing to Nevada at home Tuesday, 11-10. UC Davis has already faced three other WAC schools so far this season, defeating San Jose State on Feb. 20, 22-4, losing to Sacramento State on March 5, 14-0, and dropping two of three games to CSU Bakersfield last weekend.
The Redhawks will use the same starting rotation that was successful last weekend: left-handed pitchers Andrew Olson (Enumclaw, Wash.), Garrett Anderson (Kennewick, Wash.), and Kyle Doyle (Covington, Wash.). The Aggies will counter with three righthanded pitchers: Harry Stanwyck, Spencer Koopmans, and Evan Wolf.
Saturday is a special day at Bannerwood, as the Redhawks host "Morgan's Day" to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Morgan Powell, the daughter of Redhawk assistant baseball coach Casey Powell diagnosed with juvenile diabetes, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. There will be an informational table set up near the entrance to the ballpark, and fans will have the opportunity to enter a 50/50 raffle or make a donation, with all proceeds going to JDRF.
These will be the final home games of the month of March for the Redhawks. As always, weather may affect when and where the games are played, so keep checking GoSeattleU.com for the latest information about the contests.
