ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The No. 30 UCF baseball team will look to extend its five-game win streak when it hosts in-state foe Bethune-Cookman Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. It will be the first of two straight Wednesday nights the two squads meet at the baseball complex.
Wednesday night also signifies the second-to-last Dollar Knight at the ballpark this year. Driven by Aristocrat Volkswagen, fans can enjoy $1 hot dogs and Coke products all game long.
Season ticket holders and single-game buyers from the Feb. 24 Wawa Weekend Classic game versus Troy that was cancelled may present their ticket stub or unused ticket from Feb. 24 for admission to the game.
The Knights (25-19), who saw their 10-game win streak over the Wildcats (28-19) come to a close in a 6-0 loss away from home on Feb. 27, will look to extend their 71-15 all-time lead in the series once again in the 87th meeting all-time between the two squads. A pair of young RHPs will go head-to-head with Tyler Martin getting the nod for UCF and Lenny Martinez for B-CU.
All of the action from the UCF baseball complex can be seen on UCFAthletics.com All-Access.
