CMU baseball is 8-4 after their first 12 games of the season with eight of those contests coming against ranked teams.
"I think we arguably we maybe played one of the toughest schedules in the country early," said head coach Chris Hanks. "We've been tested. We've been in close games, tough games. I don't see anyway that can hurt our club."
Most recently the Mavs split a four-game series with now No. 13 Cal Baptist.
"They're like teams that we face in the World Series," said senior Zach McLeod. "They all have good arms. They all have extra guys that come in clutch like we do, usually. It's nice to play them, to be able to get the feel, especially early on to see what kind of team we have an what we're working with."
The Mavs open up RMAC play with a four-game series on the road against Colorado Christian with the first doubleheader starting at 12 P.M. on Friday.
