WILMINGTON, North Carolina - UNCW begins the first of consecutive five-game weeks on Tuesday when it hosts Elon at 5 p.m. and then Coastal Carolina on Wednesday for a 4 p.m. start. The Seahawks are coming off a successful weekend sweep of VCU that was capped with a 3-2 win on Sunday.

UNCW is ranked sixth nationally with 14 homers, led by Tyler Molinaro and Michael Bass with three apiece. Defensively, the Seahawks have turned 19 double plays, ranking seventh nationally. Mat Batts is second in the Colonial Athletic Association with a 1.75 ERA while Jordan Ramsey is fourth at 1.91.

Catcher Alex Swimis second on the team with 13 runs batted in and is on the Johnny Bench Award list along with UNCW catcher Drew Farber. Tyler Manez, a lefthander, will make his first start of the season for the Phoenix after three relief appearances to open the season. EU Head Coach Mike Kennedy posted his 550th career win in the CofC opener as Elon clipped the Cougars in the bottom of the 10th for the win.

Coastal Carolina, meanwhile, has gotten off to a 7-9 start following a 3-2 loss on Monday to Ohio State.
