Conference USA Tuesday recap

Memphis 10, Arkansas State 5
JONESBORO, Ark. – Freshman Brennon Martin scattered 10 hits and struck out four in 6.1 innings of work and senior Adam Amar tied the Memphis’ all-time RBI record with a run-scoring single in the first inning, as the Tigers clinched their 30th win of the year in a 10-5 victory over Arkansas State Tuesday evening at Tomlinson Stadium. Amar’s RBI was his 170th and ties him with Chris Marable, who lettered at the U of M from 1986-89.

The win guarantees the Tigers’ fourth winning season since 1995. It also seals the program’s first back-to-back winning seasons since the 1994 and 1995 campaigns. Memphis is now 30-18 on the year and Arkansas State is 19-29. The evening also marked the official opening of Barton’s Baseball Deck at ASU’s Tomlinson Stadium.

The two squads will meet in the series finale on Wednesday at Nat Buring Stadium. First pitch is slated for 6:30 p.m.

The Wiregrass Classic hosted by Troy

The Troy Trojans will be hosting The Wiregrass Classic this weekend with Southern Miss, Indiana and Georgia Southern participating. This tourney is a good test for the Troy Trojans to see if they are going to be able to compete with some of the stronger teams in the South with the Golden Eagles and Georgia Southern. Indiana will be opening their season so they might be the weakest competition in the tourney. I have put the probable starters below in the games I could find.

Friday Games
Georgia Southern (TBA) vs Southern Mississippi (Ryan Belanger 1-0, 0.00 ERA)
Troy (Joe Hallahan 1-0, 4.50 ERA) vs Indiana (Doug Fleenor, NR)

Saturday Games
