Senior day and the final series of the season are this week when BYU baseball entertains Gonzaga starting Thursday.

BYU (19-25 overall, 9-12 in the West Coast Conference) hosts Gonzaga (32-20, 12-9) in a three-game series Thursday and Friday at 6 p.m., and Saturday at 1 p.m.

“All we ask is that our players continue to come out and play well,” BYU coach Vance Law said.

The starting pitching rotation remains the same with Desmond Poulson (1-3, 3.91) and Marc Oslund (5-1, 4.53) going for the Cougars the first two days and TBA on Saturday.

Cougar rightfielder Jaycob Brugman is cleared to play after injuring his big toe in an injury similar to turf toe Saturday against Santa Clara.

Gonzaga, currently tied for third in the league, is in contention for a post-season berth and brings the reigning WCC pitcher of the week in Tyler Olson and a Dick Howser Player of the Year semi-finalist in pitcher Marco Gonzales.

Gonzaga leads the overall series, 12-13, with the two teams splitting a pair last year in Provo.  However, in Provo BYU leads the series 8-4, starting in 1971 when it won the final two of a three-game series to advance from the District Seven Championships to the College World Series.

The games will be televised live by BYUtv and by Radio 960 AM locally and on BYU Radio/Sirius 143 on the Internet.
