The Motlow Bucks baseball team will look to turn around a slow start to the season when they travel to Moorhead, Miss., this weekend for a three-game series against non-conference opponent Mississippi Delta Community College.

The Bucks (1-5) picked up their first win of the season in their home opener, beating Martin Methodist College JV 5-3 Monday afternoon at the Driver Baseball Complex. The visiting Red Hawks won game two of the doubleheader 6-2.

Motlow opened the season with a doubleheader loss to Wallace State 4-3, 3-0 on Feb. 5, in Hanceville, Ala. The Bucks then traveled to Birmingham last Friday, where they fell to Lawson State 6-1 and USC Sumter 7-6.

A seven-game home stand begins on Tuesday when the Bucks welcome Calhoun Community College for a doubleheader at the Driver Complex, with the first pitch scheduled for noon.
