MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis baseball split a shortened weekend series against Southern Illinois.

After games on Friday and Saturday were moved back, the teams split a Sunday double header, with Memphis taking the first game.

Hunter Smith tossed 6.1 solid innings in game one as his offense backed him up to a 7-2 win.

But SIU would get revenge, scoring two runs early in a lead they'd never surrender.

SIU took game two, 2-1.

The split moves Memphis to 2-4 on the season.

Memphis will next play in Fayetteville as they play Arkansas on Wednesday at 3 p.m. for their first road game of the year.
