As its season winds down, the Chattanooga softball team will travel to Birmingham, Ala.on Thursday for its final midweek games of the season with a doubleheader against UAB. The Lady Mocs (22-18/12-2 SoCon) enter the twin bill looking to extend their winning streak to three games.

The last time out UTC continued its winning ways in the conference with a sweep over Appalachian State. Chattanooga has now won five straight in the Southern Conference as the team takes off from league play. Sophomore Tiffany Baker will look to continue her torrid 2009 season on Thursday. So far this season Baker leads the team in batting average (.358), home runs (10) and RBI (32). In the circle, Michelle Fuzzard will try to improve on an 8-6 record with a 3.51 ERA.
