West Texas A&M at ENMU
When: Lone Star Conference doubleheaders at 4 p.m. today and 1 p.m. Saturday
Where: Greyhound Field, Portales
Records: West Texas A&M 19-30 (12-26 LSC), ENMU 25-25 (20-20).

Last meeting: ENMU swept a four-game series from the Buffaloes at Canyon, Texas, to end the 2008 season.
At stake: ENMU is currently seventh in the 11-team LSC, but is one of five teams vying for the final three spots in next week’s six-team LSC tournament. Southwestern Oklahoma is currently fourth at 21-19, followed by Southeastern Oklahoma and Tarleton State at 20-19, ENMU at 20-20 and Central Oklahoma at 19-21. Other season-ending series this weekend impacting the outcome have co-leader Cameron at Southwestern, last-place East Central at Southeastern, co-leader Abilene Christian at Tarelton State, Northeastern State at Central Oklahoma.
Of note: ENMU, seeking its first LSC tournament berth since 1994, missed out by one-half game last season. The team which finished sixth, Texas A&M-Kingsville, ended up winning the tournament.
