Nearly a week after the Canes traveled up to Boca Raton and lost in extra innings to FAU, the Owls will be making a return trip down to Coral Gables for a midweek game at Mark Light Field. This will be the fourth and final matchup between the two teams this season. FAU has taken two of the first three games so the Canes will be looking to even the season series on Tuesday night. The home team has won each of the three matchups so far this year with both of FAU’s wins coming in one run games. 

The Owls have struggled as of late but have consistently given the Canes issues. FAU has lost six of their last seven games with their lone win coming against Miami in a late game comebacklast week. The 11 inning win against UM was sandwiched between the Owls being swept by Dallas Baptist and then Western Kentucky. The main bright spot for FAU over the last couple of weeks has been the incredible performance of Nolan Schanuel. Schanuel has reached base in 36 straight games and has been a nightmare for opposing pitchers.

The Canes come into this in-state matchup after taking two out of three from Georgia Tech in a series that featured weather delays, postponements and even a game called early due to a travel curfew. Miami improved their home record to 21-4 this past weekend and will have a chance to build on that Tuesday night. Miami will need Yohandy Morales to remain hot as they look to even the season series with FAU. On the mound, Canes’ pitchers will need to find a way to limit the damage done by Nolan Schanuel. Schanuel is 7-11 with four home runs in three games against Miami this year. Chris Scinta is expected to make the start for the Hurricanes after his previous success against the Owls this season. Scinta has pitched over 7 innings against FAU this year and has only allowed one hit.

The final game between these two South Florida opponents will get started at 6pm at Mark Light Field. The Canes will be hoping to avoid losing three games in one season to FAU for the first time since 2018. This will be an important game for Miami to get things rolling before traveling up to Louisville for a top-25 series battle against the Cardinals starting on Thursday.
