Diamond ‘Dogs Host ULM on Tuesday Night
March 27, 2017
RUSTON, La. - Following a four-game road swing, Louisiana Tech returns back to the Love Shack for a midweek battle with a familiar foe just down I-20 in ULM.
First pitch between Louisiana Tech and ULM is set for 6 p.m. at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park and will be the first of two meetings this season between the Bulldogs and the Warhawks.
Louisiana Tech is coming off of a three-game set at Charlotte which concluded with the Diamond ‘Dogs splitting a Saturday double-header with the 49ers.
Louisiana-Monroe hosted Little Rock for a three-game series over the weekend and after splitting the first two games, took home a 7-1 victory in the series-finale. The Warhawks enter as winners of three of their last four games.
Louisiana Tech will send freshman, right-hander Tyler Follis to the hill on Tuesday night. Follis will be making his third start of the season, after making previous starts against nationally-ranked Arkansas and Wichita State.
The Warhawks will counter Follis with right-hander Cole Trichel. To this point in the season, Trichel has only tossed two innings, where he has given up six earned runs and struck out a batter. Those numbers are inflated due to a poor outing in a bruising midweek game for the Warhawks against McNeese State.
He has allowed just two hits and no runs in his other two outings that have resulted in the two innings pitched.
At the plate, ULM is led by Stephen Hemphill who is batting .346 on the year with seven runs driven in.
Tuesday night’s game will be broadcast on ESPN 97.7 and streamed live to CUSA.TV. For all the latest on Louisiana Tech Baseball, please follow @LATechBSB on Twitter or visit the official home for Louisiana Tech Athletics at www.latechsports.com.
