* Aces and Hoosiers set for three-game series in Bloomington

Coming off a come-from-behind win over WKU on Tuesday night, the University of Evansville baseball team team travels to Bloomington, Ind. for a three-game series with Indiana on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
 
Previewing the Matchup: Indiana
•    The Aces and Hoosiers are meeting for the 48th time when the two sides battle on Friday evening with Indiana owning a 29-18 advantage in the all-time series.
•    The last time the two sides met, Evansville captured a 5-4 win over Indiana on opening night of German American Bank Field on March 10, 2020 in the last game before the COVID-19 pandemic for both teams.
•    Both sides enter the weekend series with 8-12 records as the Aces captured a come-from behind 9-8 victory over WKU on Tuesday night on the road and Indiana dropped three of four to Xavier last weekend.

Comeback Win
•    On Wednesday night, Evansville battled back from a late 7-4 deficit on the road at Western Kentucky.
•    The Aces scored five runs in the ninth, capped-off by a three-run go-ahead homer from Chase Hug, helping UE capture a 9-8 win.

Rumsey on the Charge
•    A highly coveted addition to the Aces roster this season, freshman outfielder Ty Rumsey has begun to find his footing.
•    After getting his rhythm, Rumsey has begun to show his potential, sitting fourth on the team with a .283 average and generating seven walks.

Craig Eyes Career Record
•    In his four seasons with the Aces, Tanner Craig has proven to be one of the most impactful hitters in the MVC.
•    Craig enters the week just three home runs shy of the Evansville program record, set by Jeff Starks in 1982 with 40 homers.
•    Craig currently sits in a tie for second in program history with 37 homers, hitting seven so far this season.

University of Evansville senior diver Maggie Franz (Mundelein, Ill/Mundelein) has been named the school’s recipient of the State Farm MVC Good Neighbor Award for Winter 2022 thanks to her work both in the classroom and in the community.

In the classroom, Franz is one of UE’s best, as she has made the Dean’s list six semesters at UE, while boasting a 3.67 cumulative grade point average in Exercise Science.  She is a two-time MVC Swimming & Diving Scholar-Athlete Team selection and has earned the MVC Commissioner’s Academic Excellence Award.

In the community, Franz has been just as good during her time at Evansville.  She has been actively involved in community service activities involving the Evansville Soup Kitchen, the WNIN PBS Kids Fest, the Evansville Half Marathon and YMCA, the Aces Diving Clinic, and Habitat for Humanity’s Barn Blitz.

Franz recently wrapped up her diving career at Evansville by earning honorable mention all-Missouri Valley Conference honors at the MVC Championships in mid-February.  She was a three-time honorable mention all-Valley diver during her four years at UE.
