Who Stood Out Against The UCA

On Mound

Jake Curtis would get the start for Memphis in his third appearance this season. Curtis would allow two runs, three hits, and strike out one batter in his three innings.

To relieve Curtis was redshirt freshman Glenn Green III, who would also be making his third appearance for the Tigers season and would throw 2.1 innings. Green would get the win and improve his season record to 2-0 after allowing a solo home run. In the contest, Green would also strike out three while retiring six straight Bears.
