Baseball Sunday not looking real good
by SID - Well folks it looks like Vanderbilt could head home 2-0 against No. 1 Arkansas as rain is steadily pouring right now and won't likely stop anytime soon. The forecast calls for 90% chance of rain throughout the night and into tomorrow.
At this point unless there is some hidden three-hour window on Arkansas' radar, it doesn't look like Game 3 will be played. It would be the second straight year the series between the two schools has been shortened to two games. VU won both contests last year as well and has won the last five meetings dating back to the 2007 SEC Championship.
If the game is cancelled, vucommodores.com will be the place to find out.
The Dores return home for a five-game homestand starting with midweek games against Middle Tennessee and Morehead State, before ending with a three-game series against Alabama next weekend.
One thing that this team could really use is a good crowd at Hawkins Field. This young group feeds off the energy in the crowd and could definitely use a nice following over the next two weekends at home in order to make a run up the league standings. If you get a chance, head over to The Hawk and support a team that I believe is finding its stride heading down the stretch run of the season.
