WHAT TO WATCH: Facing a lefty puts Bryce Adams and Jordan Romero into the lineup behind Jared Poché, who allowed only two earned runs — both in the seventh inning — of his season-opening start.
ABOUT THE HORNETS: Sacramento State took two of three from Auburn in Plainsman Park last week and bring what Paul Mainieri termed an SEC-caliber lefty to start Friday’s game.
