COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Things are going well for the Lindsey Wilson baseball team. Ranked 11th in the NAIA and winners of 21 straight games, the Blue Raiders can claim the longest streak in the NAIA with a win on Wednesday night against Brescia (Ky.).

The 4 p.m. CT tilt at Egnew Park feature a Lindsey Wilson team that is hotter than anyone else in the country at 36-10 against a Brescia (18-30) program looking for its first win in six tries.

Wednesday's game can be seen live on iHigh.com with live stats provided by the NAIA's DakStats page. Both services can be found on the Lindsey Live portal.

The Bearcats from Owensboro, Ky., are taking on Lindsey Wilson for the first time this season in what will be the final home game of the regular-season for the Blue Raiders.

Brescia is a respectable 12-8 in Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (KIAC) games, but is just 2-7 against teams out of the Mid-South Conference.

The Blue Raiders are 17-4 against MSC teams and have posted a 21-4 mark at Egnew Park. Currently tied with Tennessee Wesleyan at 21 straight wins, a decision against the Bearcats on Wednesday would secure Lindsey Wilson with the longest streak in the NAIA this season.

The Blue Raiders last lost on March 18 in the final contest of a three-game series against Cumberlands (Ky.) at Egnew Park.

The 2012 regular season wraps up at West Virginia Tech on April 20-21 with the MSC Tournament to follow on April 26-30 with opening-round games hosted at Egnew Park in Columbia, Ky., and in Campbellsville, Ky.
