Scurry looks for his first mound win on the road tonight. In his last start at home against Fresno State, he didn't get out of the first inning.

About Louisiana Tech: Tech has won three straight, but needs to win at least three of four against New Mexico State and Nevada plus get some help if it wants to climb out of the cellar and play in the WAC Tournament, which its hosting ... Tech hit 14 homers in the series against Hawaii ... In the Saturday double-header, Tech hit three consecutive homers in each game of the twin-bill ... Jones is on an eight-game winning streak.
