The West Virginia baseball team will play its season-opening series this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida and has announced who will be toeing the rubber for each contest.
In the three-game series against Jacksonville University, junior Jackson Wolf will start Friday, sophomore Ryan Bergert Saturday and freshman Jake Carr will start Sunday.
Wolf, a lefty, is the most experienced of the group, having started 13 games a season ago. In 2019 Wolf pitched to the tune of a 2-4 record with a 5.17 ERA. He collected 50 strikeouts in 69.2 innings while walking 31.
Bergert spent most of last season in the WVU bullpen before starting a pair of games at the end of the year. The right-hander had a 1.85 ERA in 17 appearances, with 38 strikeouts and only eight walks in 34 innings.
Carr is a left-handed true freshman from St. Albans, WV. He was named the player of the year in West Virginia by the Charleston Gazette-Mail and Prep Baseball Report. As a senior Carr finished 7-0 with a 0.22 ERA and 105 strikeouts.
In opposition, Jacksonville will throw Trent Palmer (5-4, 4.55 ERA) Friday, Tyler Santana (4-4, 5.30) Saturday and Austin Temple (4-3, 5.37) Sunday.
First pitch for each game is set for 6 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday. After the three games in the Sunshine State, the Mountaineers will return home to play the earliest home game in program history against Canisius on Feb. 18. After that, the team will compete in the Brittain Resorts Invitational in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina next weekend.
