WELCOME HOME: Seattle University returns to Bannerwood Park to open the 28-game home schedule this weekend, facing the Bowling Green State Falcons of the Mid-American Conference.

SCOUTING BOWLING GREEN: The Falcons split their opening weekend series, defeating East Tennessee State 7-1 on Feb. 19 before losing to ETSU on Feb. 20, 12-1. The third game of the series was cancelled due to inclement weather. As a team, Bowling Green has combined for a .246 batting average, a .958 fielding percentage, and a 5.82 earned run average. Offensively, Nick Glanzman led the Falcons last weekend, going 4-for-9 (.444) with two runs scored and two RBI. C.J. Schildt picked up the victory in the season opener, allowing five hits, one walk, and one run in five innings of work, striking out four batters along the way. Devin Daugherty went the rest of the way in that game for the save, giving up just two hits in four innings while picking up four strikeouts. Last season, Bowling Green put together a 25-29 overall record, including a 14-13 record within the Mid-American Conference. Seattle U and Bowling Green are meeting for the first time ever.
