The Miami Hurricanes’ baseball team finally got over the hump and secured a series win on the road against a quality opponent. The Canes have struggled away from home and went into last weekend with a road game record of 2-9. This changed when Miami took two out of three from a top 15 North Carolina Tar Heel team. This was the Canes first road series win of the season. The Canes will now take on two in state opponents in midweek battles on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Miami will kickoff their midweek matchups back home at Mark Light Field against Bethune Cookman on Tuesday night at 6:00pm. The Canes will be looking to keep both their nine-gamehome winning streak and their seven-game winning streak against in state teams alive. The Canes’ bats have been red hot at home where they are averaging 11 runs per game during their nine-game home winning streak. Miami is 18-3 at home this season but will be facing a Wildcats’ team that has hit their stride as of late. Bethune Cookman has won four of their last five games and is coming off an impressive three-game sweep of Mississippi Valley State this past weekend. This will be the 40thmatchup between Miami and Bethune Cookman; Miami has taken home the win in the last eight games and in 33 of the 39 games overall.

After taking on Bethune Cookman in Coral Gables on Tuesday night, the Canes will make the short trip up to Boca Raton to face off against the Owls on Wednesday night at 6:30pm. This will be the second matchup between the two teams this season with Canes taking the first game 10-5 back in March. FAU got off to a hot start this season, but has dropped four of their last five games, including getting swept by Dallas Baptist at home this past weekend. Miami has struggled on the road offensively but hope the bats won’t have much time to cool down during the short trip up to FAU. If the Canes take care of Bethune Cookman on Tuesday, they’ll be going for their ninth straight win against teams from the state of Florida when they face the Owls on Wednesday.

Miami has finally proven they can beat quality opponents on the road, which is something they will need to do if they want to be taken seriously as a contender in May and June. Now they willhave to keep things rolling and handle business against teams that they are expected to beat. The Hurricanes will look to go 2-0 this week and keep the momentum going before Georgia Tech comes to town for a three-game conference series that starts on Friday.
