STOCKTON, Calif. -- Utah Valley University is scheduled for its only four-game series of the season this weekend at Pacific in Stockton, Calif. The series begins with a single game on Friday with a doubleheader on Saturday before Sunday's finale. Games times are 7 p.m. MT on Friday and 2 p.m. MT on Saturday and Sunday.

The Wolverines are in the midst of playing their first 16 games of the 2014 season on the road, with 14 of those games in California.

UVU (2-6) was 1-4 last week, playing three extra-inning games including an 8-5 loss in 11 innings at Pepperdine in the final game of the week. The Waves swept the Wolverines in a three-game series in Malibu.

Utah Valley split a pair of extra-inning games earlier in the week at Pac-12 Arizona. The Wildcats won in 14 innings in the first game before UVU notched a 10-inning, 5-2 win on Wednesday in the final game between the two.

Pacific enters the weekend at 4-5 after splitting a four-game series against Alabama State last week. A scheduled game Wednesday against San Jose State was washed out by rain in Northern California.

The Tigers are led by siblings Tyler and Brett Sullivan so far this season. Brett, a sophomore, is batting .438 with a pair of triples and six RBIs with Tyler, a junior, is hitting .429 with two doubles and a triple.

Pacific is already the third West Coast Conference team UVU will face this season. In addition to the Pepperdine series last week, the Wolverines opened at Loyola Marymount. Pacific was picked to finish eighth in the WCC.

Next week, Utah Valley travels to Long Beach State for three games starting Friday with a single game at Cal State Northridge on Monday, March 10 before opening at home that weekend against North Dakota.
