USM-UTSA Sunday baseball finale washed out

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The inclement weather that had forced a weekend-long reshuffling of the Conference USA baseball series between the University of Southern Mississippi and the University of Texas-San Antonio proved too much to overcome Sunday.

With UTSA up 4-1 in the second inning, play was stopped at Pete Taylor Park as a misty drizzle became a steady rain and then a serious deluge. After a 2-hour, 36-minute delay, the series finale was canceled and will not be made up.

No statistics will count from Sunday’s game.

It marks the first time in 18 years that USM has not played all three games of a C-USA home series. The Golden Eagles and the University of Memphis only managed to play two of three scheduled games in March 2000.

The 15th-ranked Golden Eagles (14-4, 2-0 Conference USA) won both ends of a day-night doubleheader Saturday

 USM took the opener 12-2 behind seven shutout innings and 14 strikeouts from junior right-hander Nick Sandlin then erased a 3-0 deficit with four runs over the final three innings to take a 4-3 decision from the Roadrunners (7-10, 0-2).

The Golden Eagles, who have won six games in a row, are scheduled to host Southern University at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Pete Taylor Park.
