AFA Series Begins
With final exams over and no one graduating on the team this week, BYU's baseball team begins a three-game series at the Air Force Academy.
BYU, now 15-24 overall and 5-7 in the Mountain West Conference, looks to get back on track after a four-game losing streak at home. The Cougars begin play at Air Force on Thursday and Friday at 2 p.m., each day.
The Cougars, who have no seniors on this year's team, are ranked 164th in the just-released NCAA RPI, while AFA is 265 with a 13-24 overall record and 0-11 in MWC action. TCU is the league's highest ranked team with a 29 RPI, followed by New Mexico at 52. Previous BYU opponent Oral Roberts is ranked 22nd in the RPI ranking which includes 296 teams.
Jordan Muir (2-4, 5.43) is scheduled to pitch Thursday's game, followed by Jake Wortham (2-3, 7.81) on Friday and Blake Torgerson (4-3, 7.09) on Saturday. Thursday and Friday's games will also be carried live via audio stream on BYU radio which will air Brent Norton's play-by-play on KSRR (1400 AM). Saturday's game time is at noon.
