Justin Schuver | Monday, April 4, 2005

Inclement weather conditions in New Jersey forced the postponement of Notre Dame’s scheduled doubleheader against Rutgers Sunday. The teams will attempt to make up the two games today at Frank Eck Stadium in a doubleheader that starts at 11 a.m.In accordance with Big East policy, the length of today’s doubleheader will be limited because of Notre Dame’s travel schedule – no inning will be allowed to start after 4:30 p.m.Junior Tom Thornton and sophomore Jeff Samardzija are the probably starting pitchers for Notre Dame, while Rutgers is expected to send O.J. DeChristofano and Aaron Kalb to the mound.Notre Dame (13-10, 3-1 in the Big East) hopes to continue its season-long four-game winning streak against the Scarlet Knights (13-9, 3-1). The Irish have outscored their opponents 36-11 over that four-game span.The Irish will remain at home to face Toledo Tuesday.
