DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke baseball team will host Temple on Tuesday and Xavier on Wednesday for a pair of non-conference games at Jack Coombs Field. Both games are set for a 3 p.m. start. The Blue Devils enter the week with a 13-1 record while the Owls are 2-7 and the Musketeers are 1-10.

Home Sweet Home
The Blue Devils are in the midst of an 11-game homestand at historic Jack Coombs Field.

Last Time Out
Duke is coming off last weekend’s three-game sweep over Holy Cross. The Blue Devils won both games of a double-header against Holy Cross on Saturday, routing the Crusaders, 13-1, in game one before erasing a five-run deficit in game two for a 10-7 victory. On Sunday, second baseman Ryan McCurdy scored from second on a passed ball to break a 5-5 tie in the bottom of the seventh and freshman Michael Seander and senior Jonathan Anderson held Holy Cross scoreless over the next two innings as Duke held on for a 6-5 victory.

Tuesday: Duke: LHP Jeremy Gould (0-1, 6.52 ERA) vs. Temple: RHP Rob Chamra (0-0, 27.00 ERA)   
Wednesday: Duke: TBA vs. Xavier: TBA

Scouting Temple
Temple enters Tuesday’s game with a 2-7 record on the season. The Owls defeated Winthrop on Friday in 10 innings before dropping two straight to East Tennessee State and Kent State at the Winthrop Coca-Cola Classic in Rock Hill, S.C., over the weekend. 
Duke-Temple Series History
The Blue Devils hold an 8-1 record over the Owls in series history. The two teams last met in 2000 when Duke swept Temple in a three-game series Feb. 19-20.

Xavier enters Wednesday’s contest 1-10 on the season. The Musketeers dropped a three-game series to top-ranked Vanderbilt over the weekend. Their lone win of the season came against Oakland on Feb. 28.
