VMI baseball returns to action on Wednesday, playing host to the Old Dominion Monarchs at 4 p.m. Fans can follow the action via live stats at the link posted above.

Probable Starting Pitchers

VMI RHP TJ Lighton (0-1, 2.35 ERA) vs. ODU LHP Jake Josephs (0-0, 0.00 ERA, 1.2 IP)

Quick Hitters

As always, a game against ODU will have significant meaning for the Keydets. Not only are the Monarchs an in-state rival, but ODU coach Chris Finwood is a VMI alumnus, VMI Sports Hall of Fame member, and was the head coach at the Institute for current Keydet skipper Marlin Ikenberry's first three years as a VMI player. Finwood also was the coach at Western Kentucky when Jonathan Hadra, current VMI assistant, spent three years as an assistant.

This will mark VMI's fourth game against the Monarchs since Finwood took over prior to the start of last year, with ODU having swept three contests last season. This is also the Keydets' fifth game in five days, following the three-team round-robin last Saturday-Monday that saw VMI go 3-1.

Next Time Out

The Keydets are back in action Friday, opening a four-game weekend series against the Binghamton Bearcats at Gray-Minor Stadium. Game time is set for 4 p.m.
