INSIDE THE LIONS
The Lions enter the week with a 21-18 overall record and even 4-4 mark in PCSC play... On the road for the first two weeks of conference action, LMU went 2-2 against CSU Bakersfield and Santa Clara... As play gets underway this week, that 4-4 record leaves the Lions in a tie for third with Saint Mary's in the PCSC standings... BYU leads the field at 4-0 while Utah Valley is second at 5-3... A consistent presence at the plate has been the root of LMU's struggles recently... In eight PCSC games, they are averaging just 6.4 hits per game, batting a collective .227 with a .293 on base percentage and have left 48 runners on base... During the span, Meghan Harman has led the Lions with 10 hits and a .345 average... Hannah Montalban follows with nine hits and a .333 average... Both players have hit two doubles and a home run in the eight-game stretch... Harman also leads LMU overall with 40 hits, including seven doubles, one triple and six home runs (.367 average)... The Lions' pitching staff holds a combined 2.41 ERA... Sydney Gouveia leads the way with an 11-2 record and 1.61 ERA in 22 total appearances... The freshman's 11.2 strikeouts per seven innings is good for No. 3 in the nation... She also ranks 14th in total strikeouts (167) and 17th in shutouts (5)... Skylar Segura is also ranked among the nation's best, coming in at No. 3 in sacrifice hits per game (0.42)...

INSIDE THE MATCHUP
LMU is 49-30 all-time against Saint Mary's... That mark includes a stellar 22-4 record at home... Saint Mary's swept the four-game PCSC series last year in Moraga... Prior to that, LMU had won five of the last six meetings...
