FIRST PITCH

·         13-7 in Lone Star Conference play, while Tarleton State is 14-19 and 8-12 in league play.
·         This series begins the second half of the conference regular season with the Buffs tied for second in the league standings with Angelo State, one game behind Texas A&M-Kingsville.  Tarleton State is fifth in the league standings, six games behind TAMUK and one game out of fourth-place Cameron.  The top four teams qualify for the conference tournament at the end of the regular season at the regular season champion.

·         The Texans lead the all-time series with WT 60-49, but the Buffs have won 10 of 13 dating back to 2014.
