STORYLINES

 Lander (15-16) defeated USC Aiken on a pair of walkoff wins last weekend to claim the series. Ryan Troutman's walkoff single in the 10th inning tied the series on Saturday and a solo homer from Alex Conaway in the bottom of the ninth on Sunday gave the Bearcats the series. Lander defeated Limestone 9-6 in a non-conference game on Wednesday night. 

• The wins over USC Aiken gave the Bearcats their third PBC series win of the season and their second in a row. 

• Sophomore Robbie Hoyt has earned wins in each of Lander's last three games. Hoyt has struck out nine batters and walked just one in his last three appearances.

• The Bearcats homered in all three games against USC Aiken. In Lander's three conference series wins, the Bearcats have homered in all three games. 

• Lander is 11-1 all-time against Young Harris. The Mountain Lions' lone win came in the series opener in 2015. 

• The Bearcats have managed at least one extra-base in 28 consecutive games. 

• Lander is averaging 339 fans per home game this season, third-highest in the Peach Belt Conference.
