Senior Phillip Chapman homered to left field today. All of his homers in 2011 have been sent over FedExPark’s left field wall on a Sunday.
The Tigers once again got off to a fast start, opening today’s competition with a three-run lead. Memphis suffered its first loss when scoring more than four runs, falling to 18-1 on the season.
Despite dropping the Sunday contest, Memphis won its first Conference USA series of the season. Memphis was 1-2 against East Carolina in Memphis is 7-2 so far in a 10-game home stand. The 10th game of that stretch will be Tuesday, against Arkansas State. That game will feature a pair of brothers in opposing dugouts.
Tiger hurler Tyler Farlay suits up for Memphis, while his brother, Brandon, is a junior pitcher for the Red Wolves. Both are from Collierville.
