ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - After a ninth-inning win on Sunday in Jacksonville, the UCF baseball team returns home for its busiest stretch of the 2013 regular season with six games in seven days beginning with Florida A&M on Tuesday and Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.

Both contests against the Rattlers (1-15) will be Dollar Knights at the UCF baseball complex with $1 hot dogs and Coke products all game long.

On the mound in the two-game set with FAMU will be lefties Brian Adkins and Eric Skoglund. Each southpaw will be looking for his first win of the season against a team that the Knights (9-7) are 15-2-1 all-time against.

Last weekend, UCF was able to capture its third weekend series of the season by taking Saturday and Sunday's contests against JU. Freshman Bo Decker lifted the Knights' offense on Saturday with a key two-run single for his first-career hit, while fellow rookie RHP Zac Favre went three innings for his first win as a Knight in the 6-4 victory on Sunday.
