Game Notes UNCW | Davidson

DAVIDSON, North Carolina – UNCW Head Coach Mark Scalf and his Seahawks open a three-game split series with Davidson this weekend with a 6 p.m. start in Davidson on Friday before returning to Brooks Field for the final two games of the series on Saturday and Sunday.

The series will be the first between the two schools since the 1994 season with the Seahawks holding a 14-2 advantage in the series.

The Seahawks return to the field for the first time since a 10-0 loss to top-ranked North Carolina earlier in the week. UNCW had opened its five-game week on Tuesday with a key non-conference win over visiting College of Charleston (7-2).

UNCW will send junior lefthander Mat Batts (4-1, 2.47 ERA) to the mound on Friday followed by sophomore righthander Jordan Ramsey (4-2, 1.46 ERA) on Saturday and junior southpaw Christian MacDonald (3-0, 3.46 ERA) on Sunday in the series finale. Last weekend against Old Dominion, the trio combined to allow just two runs, one earned, over 23 and 1/3 innings.
Batts was named Colonial Athletic Association Co-Pitcher-of-the-Week after hurling his second straight complete game shutout against the Monarchs in the series opener.

Davidson returns to the friendly confines of Wilson Field after an eight-game road swing and owns a record of 8-8 at home this season. Forrest Brandt lead the lineup with a .319 average while Andrew Barna has team-leading totals of six home runs and 20 runs batted in.

On the mound, Danny Mooney and Ryan Lowe have both made seven starts on the season with Mooney leading the staff with three wins and a 4.07 ERA. He’s walked 14 and struck out 39 in 42 innings. Lowe, who will start Friday’s game, stands at 2-4 with a 4.99 ERA.

Davidson skipper Dick Cooke and Scalf were on Ray Tanner’s Team USA coaching staff in 2003. Team USA won 25 straight games that summer and set a record for winning percentage (.931).

The series returns to Wilmington on Saturday with first-pitch slated for 4 p.m. and concludes on Sunday with a 2 p.m. start.
