Weekend showers shorten UAPB series
Southern University baseball announced the cancellation of its Southwestern Athletic Conference series with Arkansas-Pine Bluff Sunday morning.
Following Friday night's series opener, heavy rains descended on Baton Rouge and halted Saturday's scheduled 2 p.m. first pitch. With field conditions unplayable as a result of the downpour, the team canceled the remaining games in the weekend series. Both games are not likely to be rescheduled for later this season.
Southern returns to the diamond on Wednesday night to face New Orleans for the third time this season in a mid-week affair at Lee Hines Field.
First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m.
