The University of Incarnate Word baseball team hopes to clinch its first trip to the Southland Conference tournament this week when it hosts Sam Houston State in a three-game series.

All games will be held at Sullivan Field.

Game 1 is set for tonight at 6:30, followed by a second game on Friday at 2 p.m. The regular-season finale for both teams is scheduled for Saturday at 1 p.m.

Sam Houston State is coming off a season of historic success.
