Tech in Memphis for three-game set against former Golden Eagle

First games with Memphis since 2003

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Tech baseball team, winners of four of its last five games, is in Memphis this weekend for a three-game series against the Tigers. Tech and Memphis have not met in seven years.

The games are set for 6:30 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday.

Memphis is coached by Daron Schoenrock, a former starting pitcher for the Golden Eagles who is in his sixth season at the helm of the Tigers.

Tech rallied for two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning Wednesday night to capture a 6-5 victory over East Tennessee State and improve to 9-8 overall this season. The Tigers also had a thrilling victory on Wednesday night, scoring three runs in the bottom of the eighth to claim a 5-3 win over South Alabama. Memphis comes into the weekend series with a 6-11 overall record.

Schoenrock pitched for the Golden Eagles from 1981 to 1984, leading the staff in victories in his senior season with six.
