Owls put winning streak on the line against the Hawks

On Friday, March 22, Temple (7-9) will begin conference play with a three-game series against Saint Joseph’s (8-11) beginning at 3:00 p.m. at Skip Wilson Field.

The Owls will enter Friday winners of their past four games, three of which were at Skip Wilson Field dating back to Friday, March 15.

With its three-game winning streak in doubt on Tuesday entering the ninth inning, Temple put together a four-run top of the ninth to top Lehigh 11-8 in Bethlehem, Pa. to extend its’ streak to four consecutive wins.

In the win over Lehigh, junior first baseman Derek Peterson finished 4-for-5 with three runs scored, while both redshirt-junior center fielder David Hall and junior right-fielder Bobby Heitzman each added three RBI.

This season, Temple is 3-0 while playing at home, while St. Joe’s is 2-10 while on the road in 2013.

The Owls will face the Hawks on Friday at 3:00 p.m., Saturday at 1:00 p.m. and on Sunday at noon.
