BASEBALL

St. Mary’s College

The Gaels have been on a roll as of late, riding a four-game winning streak into Wednesday’s contest against Rider. SMC commenced its hot stretch with a 10-1 midweek victory over Sacramento State, a team that received first-place votes in the WAC Preseason Poll. The Gaels swept Utah Valley over the weekend and outscored its two opponents 41-6.

UT Arlington

The Mavericks may have only had a weekend series, but they traveled 2,000 miles to sweep Seattle on its home turf. UT Arlington has won six of its last seven contests, picking up a midweek win against Abilene Christian and stealing 2-of-3 on the road at UIW.

Shorter University (Div. II)

The Hawks swept Morehouse in a doubleheader on Wednesday before taking two Gulf South Conference games versus Christian Brothers.

Randolph-Macon (Div. III)

The fifth-ranked Yellow Jackets outscored Guilford 26-5 while winning their first two ODAC games.

Chipola College (NJCAA)

The Indians are on a six-game winning streak, outscoring opponents 50-9 during that stretch. Chipola opened conference play with a sweep of Tallahassee Community College, topping the Eagles 9-1, 2-0 and 3-2.

Meridian (NJCAA)

The Eagles join the Indians as the other team yet to lose in March. Chipola pushed its winning streak to seven with two five-inning wins over Nunez Community College on Friday.

SOFTBALL

UNLV

The Rebels closed the Stanford tournament by beating the Cardinal, a team that was receiving votes in the NCAA DI Top 25, twice in less than 24 hours. UNLV boasts an 8-2 record in March and its 19-5 mark is the program’s best 24-game start since 1995.
