SALT LAKE CITY - The Utah baseball team heads on the road this weekend for a three-game Pac-12 series against Washington State beginning on Friday, May 9, at 6:00 p.m. PT. The series continues on Saturday, May 10, at 7:00 p.m. PT, and Sunday, May 11, at noon PT.
Saturday and Sunday's games will be televised live on the Pac-12 Networks.
Utah (14-28, 3-18 Pac-12) is coming off a 12-10 come-from-behind victory against BYU on Tuesday evening.
The Utes have scored 29 runs in their last two games, including a 21-17 loss to seventh-ranked Washington on Sunday, May 4. Utah has hit five home runs in its last two games, after hitting just three home runs through its first 40 games. Utah rallied from a six-run deficit against BYU, and a nine-run deficit on Sunday against Washington.
"I expect us to battle until the last out," Utah head coach Bill Kinneberg said. "I want us to play the game right, work to get better, and I want our young guys to continue to get innings and at-bats."
WSU is 20-23 and 10-11 in the Pac-12, and recently took two of three against USC.
"They are a veteran ball club, so this will be a challenging three games for us," Kinneberg said.
