The Texas A&M – Corpus Christi Baseball team will look to get back into the win column on Tuesday evening in a non-conference game against former Southland Conference member Texas State. First pitch is slated for 6:30 p.m. at Chapman Field.
All fans without a valid Texas A&M – Corpus Christi parking pass or a disabled parking tag are required to park in the Bayside Parking Garage located on campus.
The Islanders (3-5) are coming off of a tough weekend at the Kleberg Bank College Classic where they lost a pair of 4-2 games against No. 14 Oklahoma and the Iowa Hawkeyes, as well as dropping a contest against New Mexico, a team receiving votes in multiple national polls.
Texas State (2-5) went 1-2 against Houston at home in San Marcos this past weekend, winning the opener before dropping a pair of close games on Saturday and Sunday.
Starting for the Islanders will be Tim Keller (1-1, 5-00 ERA), while Mitchell Pitts (0-0, 4.50 ERA) will get the ball for the Bobcats.
The Islanders are hitting .256 as a team compared to .183 for Texas State. The pithing staff of Texas State holds a 3.46 ERA, while Texas A&M – Corpus Christi stands at 4.62 on the season.
The last time the two teams met was on April 7, 2012, at Chapman Field. The team used a ninth-inning rally to pick up a 4-3 win, salvaging the final game after the Bobcats won the Friday and Saturday contests.
In what was a regular occurrence before Texas State moved to the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) last July, the teams will once again play multiple games throughout the season, with the Tuesday night affair being the first of four in 2013. The Islanders will travel to San Marcos in three weeks to play at Bobcat Ballpark on March 15-17 for a three-game series the week before starting Southland Conference play.
