The Marshall University softball team (18-12) faces Saint Francis University (17-12) Tuesday in its final home, non-conference doubleheader of the season.

Marshall enters the doubleheader after splitting its last matches against Radford University Wednesday. The Herd won its second game against the Highlanders after a 14-hit and three home run performance.

Junior pitcher Jordan Dixon recorded her 700th career strikeout against Radford, making her the third Marshall pitcher to reach 700.

Dixon has 704 strikeouts and needs another 28 to become the university’s all-time strikeout leader.

Saint Francis enters the doubleheader on an eight match win streak, including five mercy-rule victories. Six Red Flash players have hit .400 or better during the streak.

Saint Francis has 10 or more runs in nine games this season, which is the most double-digit run games in a season in the history of the program.

The first pitch of Tuesday’s doubleheader is set for 2 p.m. at Dot Hicks Field.
