Time, site: Wednesday, 4 p.m., O’Keefe Field, Bangor

Records: Maine 11-19, Husson 3-7

Top hitters: Maine — LF Kali Burnham (.354-2 homers-12 RBIs), 3B Terren Hall (.341-7-25), SS Jennifer Eberhardt (.292-3-10), 1B Kirstin Allen (.169-1-7); Husson — DP Kelly Naegelin (.400-0-5), RF Courtney Hill (.314-1-1), 1B Amanda Gifford (.312), SS Diann Ramsey (.214-0-2), CF Dottie Cameron (.172-0-2)

Pitching matchups: Maine — RH Ashley Kelley (3-9, 4.38 earned-run average), RH Kylie Sparks (3-4, 3.72), RH Beth Spoehr (5-6, 4.64); Husson — RH Kody Lyon (1-4, 5.71), RH Kelly Naegelin (0-1, 3.34), RH Amanda Ryan (0-1, 1.83)

Outlook: Husson is eager to get back on the field since the Eagles haven’t played since March 18. Maine swept a three-game series from UMBC last weekend and has won four of its last five. Maine struggled offensively on its spring trip but scored 19 runs in the sweep of UMBC last weekend. Both teams will be looking to get some work for its pitching staff. Eleven of Hall’s 29 hits have been of the extra-base variety (7 homers, 4 doubles). Burnham has nine extra- base hits (6 doubles, 2 homers, 1 triple) among her 29. Husson has lost six of its last seven.
