TULSA, Okla. - The Oral Roberts baseball team has won four of their last six games, and they look to continue building on that success as they travel to Wichita State on Tuesday afternoon.

Originally scheduled as the third matchup between the two teams this season, the Golden Eagles (5-5) look to avenge a loss in Tulsa on Feb. 19 at the hands of the Shockers (5-4).

Last Tuesday, a scheduled contest between the two schools was postponed due to snow. That game will be made up on April 24 in Wichita.

The Golden Eagles are coming off a doubleheader split on Sunday afternoon at Southeast Missouri State. ORU won the first game against the Redhawks, 5-4, before a stunning turn of events as SEMO took game two on a bases loaded suicide squeeze play in the bottom of the ninth, 6-5.

The doubleheader was forced because of snowy conditions in Cape Girardeau, Mo., which postponed the series opener on Friday. ORU won Saturday's contest with the help of the two-run homerun from Tyler Boss, 3-1.

Wichita State is coming off a four game weekend in which they beat Western Illinois, New Orleans and Iowa. Their lone loss of the weekend came at the hands of Central Arkansas.
