'Dogs hosting conference champs

The Diamond Dogs will be hosting regular season conference champs New Mexico starting Friday.

Fresno State will try and use this three game set to get hot and gain momentum into the Mountain West tournament.

The 'Dogs are coming off an 8-6 win over Hawaii Tuesday night.

That victory made it seven in a row at home and they'll need to keep that momentum going against the Lobos.

Bottom line, the 'Dogs are three games back of the 2nd seed with six to play.

A second seed means a bye. And head coach Mike Batesole can set up the rotation for a postseason push.
