McNeese’s baseball team returns home tonight, playing host to Harvard in a doubleheader. First pitch is set for a 4 p.m. start followed by a 7 p.m. nightcap.
The Cowboys (10-8) clinched a weekend series over former Southland member UT-Arlington last weekend winning the first two games before dropping the series finale. The Crimson stopped in Corpus Christi on Monday night to face the Islanders before tonight.
This will be the first meeting between McNeese (10-8) and Harvard, a member of the Ivy League. McNeese has faced one other team from the Ivy League, defeating Dartmouth in Lake Charles 10-2 back in 1991.
McNeese left-fielder Jackson Gooch at the plate is batting .342 (26-for-76) with six doubles, a triple, three home runs and 15 RBI. Gooch also holds a team-high eight-game hitting streak heading into tonight’s contests.
