MARTIN, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin baseball program has made a change to the schedule as it will host Evansville for the March 20 matchup while it will travel to Evansville for the game on May 8. First pitch is slated for 6 p.m. tomorrow evening.
UT Martin is led by Jordan Stoner (.333 batting average, seven RBIs) as well as Ben Aslett (.309 batting average, four RBIs). The trio of Ethan Whitley (team-high four home runs and 12 RBIs), JoJo Allen (three home runs and 11 RBIs) and Casey Harford (three home runs and 10 RBIs) have accounted for the bulk of the scoring for the Skyhawks.
Stoner looks to build off his strong week against Union and Southeast Missouri as he went 10-for-18, pounded out four doubles and stretched out a pair of triples to go along with a 1.600 OPS. Whitley had a memorable week as well as the freshman belted the team’s only home runs over that span along with a squad-best five RBIs. Edwards swung a timely bat as he connected for four RBIs over the week.
Lefty Konnor Aherin (2-1, 4.50 ERA) has anchored the Skyhawk bullpen as he sports the team’s best ERA and has tallied the squad’s only save on the season. Right hander David Hussey (0-0, 4.70 ERA) and righty Jefferey O’Doherty (0-0, 5.79 ERA) have also provided UT Martin with good innings. Right handed pitcher Seth Rayburn (1-0, 11.12 ERA) showed great poise in his four-inning appearance against Southeast Missouri as he came on in a sticky situation but allowed just one earned run while fanning three batters in his time on the mound.
Evansville is led by Troy Beilsmth (.316 batting average, three home runs and 10 RBIs). The duo of Kenton Crews and Andrew Tanous have tallied double-digit RBIs on the season as well with 10 apiece. Craig Tanner (.288 batting average and two home runs) has also been one of the best bats int he Purple Aces’ lineup.
Dalton Horstmeier (1-1, 1.50 ERA), Adam Lukas (1-1, 1.69 ERA), Nathan Croner (0-1, 2.45 ERA), Hunter Porterfield (0-0, 4.00 ERA) and Ryan Brady (1-1, 4.32 ERA) have provided the Purple Aces with great bullpen depth over the course of the young season.
