Baseball: Everything to know before Ohio takes on Morehead State

The Bobcats will be looking to string some wins together before heading into an important series with Toledo this weekend.

Morehead State Notes:

Morehead State has had an up-and-down season so far but enters in a streak of having won four of its last five games. The Eagles feature one of the best offenses in the Ohio Valley Conference, with six hitters having an above .300 batting average. 

Earlier this season, Ohio surrendered 20 runs to Morehead State in a midweek road loss. In that game, Morehead State’s Hunter Thomas had a phenomenal game with three hits and four RBIs. 

Player to Watch - Jackson Cauthron 

Cauthron, Ohio’s go-to catcher of late, has gotten hot at the plate and provided a spark for an offense that has faced some of the Mid-American Conference’s top pitchers recently. Cauthron carries a five-game hitting streak into Tuesday’s game and will be looking to build upon a weekend where he tallied five total RBIs and a home run against Bowling Green.
