|Baseball Preview: Elon|
WILMINGTON, North Carolina – The Seahawks visit future Colonial Athletic Association rival Elon on Tuesday as UNCW opens a five-game road swing that continues later in the week in California.
UNCW (4-3) is coming off a successful weekend where it went 3-1 against Ohio and Liberty that was capped by a one-hitter by sophomore Nick Monroe, who chased perfection into the ninth inning before a clean single ended his bid.
Elon carries a 5-1 mark into the non-conference tilt at Latham Park following a sweep of Wagner over the weekend. The Phoenix ended UNCW’s season in 2013, taking a pair of games from UNCW in the Charlottesville Regional.
Sophomore RHP Ryan Foster (0-0) will make his first start of the season and his career for UNCW while Elon counters with RHP Matt Harris (0-0).
Tuesday’s game will be aired locally in Wilmington on AM630 and on the internet at the link above.
