The VSU (22-14, 9-9) baseball team welcome first year Gulf South Conference member Union University (8-28, 2-18) this weekend.
The Blazers are coming off of wins in 11 of their last 14 games.
The Bulldogs are struggling as newcomers to the conference but VSU head coach Greg Guilliams still wants to keep his team focused.
“I do not know if there is anything I can say except all we can do, is the things we control,” Guilliams said. “We need to be a little more consistent with our defense; it was a little sloppy (Tuesday night).”
VSU’s offense has continued to be ideal and has averaged over nine runs a game in the past eight games.
“Last weekend we swung the bats really well but we still have to be more consistent,” Guilliams said.
The Blazers are in the last stretch of the season and still have high expectations.
“Hopefully we are playing good baseball going into the tournament,” Guilliams said. “We have to continue to swing the bats and if we do that, the game will take care of itself.”
The three-game series begins Saturday in a doubleheader and a final game Sunday.
