NACOGDOCHES - The Stephen F. Austin Lumberjack baseball team returns to the diamond fresh off its 3-2 upset over No. 10 (Baseball America Top 25 poll) Houston. The 'Jacks (9-39) will host Texas A&M-Corpus Christi for a two-game series beginning Saturday, and will conclude the series on Sunday. The Islanders enter the series with a 20-29 (.408) overall record. Both games will begin at 1 p.m. from Jaycees Field.
The two schools met in Corpus Christi earlier this season and split the series. The Islanders won the first game 5-4, but the Lumberjacks rebounded in game two to record a 10-5 victory.
The Lumberjacks return to Southland Conference action Friday May 12, when they host Southeastern Louisiana in a three-game series at Jaycees Field. Friday's game is slated for a 3 p.m. start while the Saturday and Sunday games will begin at 1 p.m.
