Coach Steve Trimper’s keys to the series: “We’ll be able to put ourselves in a position to win a ballgame if we do the little things right. A good team like Miami, they can capitalize on mistakes. We have to make the routine plays.”

Game notes: Most of the Black Bears arrived in Florida despite weather-related flight issues. Two newcomers and assistant coach J.P. Pyne could not make it. A predominately left-handed-hitting UMaine lineup must contend with three lefty starters. Heath, who has had his delivery revamped, pitched only 6 ⅓ innings in 2013.
