Baseball: ETSU - Game 2

On Tuesday, March 25, the Catamounts visit Johnson City for the first time since the announcement of the return of East Tennessee State to the Southern Conference.  The Cats and Bucs will play the away portion of a home and home series with the Bucs started last week in Cullowhee..

ETSU (11-12) took two of three from Stetson this past weekend in the opening of Atlantic Sun Conference play at Thomas Stadium. As a team, the Bucs hit .274 for the series and held the Hatters to a .238 clip, while ETSU pitchers struck out 18 hitters and walked five.

The Cats leads the all-time series against the Bucs, 62-29, but ETSU defeated the Cats last week in Cullowhee to snap the Catamounts’ 21-game home winning streak, which was the longest in the nation and ended the Bucs eight-game losing streak to the Catamounts.

The Catamounts rank 13th nationally in home runs (19), 25th in batting average (.303) and 43rd in hits (237), while infielder Aaron Attaway is the active national career leader in runs scored (165) and tied for second in hits (255).

There will be live streaming video on A-Sun TV (free) and live stats from ETSU, as well as,  live radio coverage by the Catamount Sports Network and stretch internet.
