TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Jacksonville University (9-9) ventures west for a mid-week tilt at Florida A&M University (11-4) on Tuesday at Moore-Kittle Field. First pitch between the Dolphins and Rattlers is set for 5:00 p.m. Last season, JU scored eight unanswered runs and saw its bullpen shutdown FAMU for an 8-5 comeback win in Tallahassee.

Scouting the Opponent      

The Rattlers opened Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play with a series win at Bethune-Cookman over the weekend, including a win on ESPNU Friday. Fourth-year skipper Jamey Shouppe has guided FAMU to series wins in all of its weekend series, and a mid-week sweep over Mercer.

The offense features eight regulars who are batting over .300, including Aubrey McCarty and Brian Davis, who have each belted a trio of dingers.
