ASHEVILLE, N.C. – The UNC Asheville baseball team is home this afternoon against Wofford College starting at 6 p.m.
Today’s game will be streamed live by the Big South Digital Network and can be seen for free at uncabulldogs.com.
Asheville (9-19) is coming off a frustrating 4-1 defeat at Western Carolina last night. Bulldog pitching limited the powerful Catamount offense to just six hits. But walks and hit batters helped give WCU a 2-1 lead and that enough for the Cats to get the win.
The Terriers are 16-12 on the season and have been doing a lot of damage against Big South Conference clubs. Wofford is 8-1 against teams from the Big South, including two wins against Winthrop.
Asheville went 3-0 against the Terriers last season after Wofford swept the Dogs in a two-game series in 2012.
The Terriers are coached by former UNC Asheville baseball player, assistant coach and assistant SID Todd Interdonato.
Senior third baseman Robert McIntosh leads the Bulldogs in hitting with a .303 average. Outfielder Phillip Treadway is right behind him at .299. Pete Guys tops the Dogs in homers with three and is tied with McIntosh for RBI’s at 13.
Tonight’s game starts a six-game homestand for the Blue & White. Asheville entertains Big South juggernaut Coastal Carolina this weekend in a three-game series that starts Friday at 6 p.m., followed by a game Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.
Next week, the Bulldogs host Davidson on Tuesday (April 8) and Western Carolina (April 9). Both games will start at 6 p.m. Wednesday’s game against WCU will be the dedication game of the new lights at Greenwood Field.
