TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Jacksonville University (9-9) ventures west for a mid-week tilt at Florida A&M University (11-4) on Tuesday at Moore-Kittle Field. First pitch between the Dolphins and Rattlers is set for 5:00 p.m. Last season, JU scored eight unanswered runs and saw its bullpen shutdown FAMU for an 8-5 comeback win in Tallahassee.
Despite Harvard University scoring three runs in the first inning, Jacksonville University was able to fight through the rough start and take the Sunday series finale 5-3 over the Crimson. The Dolphins took the series 3-1.
Scouting the Opponent
The Rattlers opened Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play with a series win at Bethune-Cookman over the weekend, including a win on ESPNU Friday. Fourth-year skipper Jamey Shouppe has guided FAMU to series wins in all of its weekend series, and a mid-week sweep over Mercer.
The offense features eight regulars who are batting over .300, including Aubrey McCarty and Brian Davis, who have each belted a trio of dingers.
The Dolphins continue to square off against Sunshine state opponents when JU meets UCF in Orlando on Friday before hosting the Knights on Saturday and Sunday.
