MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The Middle Tennessee softball team is set to host Bowling Green in doubleheader action on Tuesday at Blue Raider Field. Game one is set to begin at 3 p.m., followed by the second-half of the two game set at 5 p.m.

Entering the contests, MT is 4-9 on the season after dropping two games at last weekend's TTU Combat Classic in Cookeville, Tenn. Corrie Abel highlighted the weekend , blasting a two-run homer in the first game against Louisville. This was the 196 hit of her career, the most for a Blue Raider.

The Falcon's boast a 1-9 record and are coming off a 1-5 showing at last weekend Phyllis Rafter Memorial in Kennesaw, Ga. At the tournament, BGSU took losses to Ball State, Kennesaw State and Mercer. Middle Tennessee played all three opponents in 2010, which will give Nevar and the rest of the staff excellent opportunities scout the Falcons in order to help get two needed wins.

"We need to go get some wins," head coach Sue Nevar said. "We need the momentum before we go to Miami this coming weekend for the FAU Tournament and then our conference opener with FIU after next week."

Tuesday's mid-week clash will be the first meeting between the two schools, however, head coach Sue Nevar is familiar with the Falcons, having played BGSU 39 times while in her tenure at Kent State. Nevar is 20-19 all-time against Bowling Green.

Live radio will be available for Tuesday's game. Audio as well as updates and post-game coverage can be found on GoBlueRaiders.com and Twitter.com/MT_Softball.
