The Games
   The Liberty University Flames (21-14, 3-3 Big South) host the Charleston Southern

The Flames and the Buccanneers will square off on Friday at Worthington Stadium in a doubleheader. The first game is slated to begin at Noon.  Depending on the weather, the final game of the series will be played on Saturday or Sunday at a time to be determined.
 
The Series Against Charleston Southern
   Friday's  first game will be the 49th meeting between the Flames and the Buccanneers on the diamond. Liberty enters the game with a 29-19 all-time series advantage since 1976. 
  Last season at Buccaneer Field, the Flames took two-of-three from the Buccaneers.
Charleston Southern took the opening game of the series on April 14, 7-5, with the Flames rebounding the following day to sweep a doubleheader, 13-6 and 7-2.

The Last Time Out
   A trio of William & Mary hitters had three hits apiece to pace a 14-hit attack as the host Tribe defeated the Liberty Flames, 11-1, in the Flames' first night contest of the season, Tuesday night at Plumeri Park.
   Despite grabbing the lead in the top of the first inning in its first night game of the season, Liberty soon saw it disappear in the bottom of the inning and trailed the rest of the way.
   P.K. Keller went 3-for-3 and Phil John had two hits for the Flames on the night.
