Baseball: Tuesday’s game with Broncos postponed

Lorenzo Reyes | Wednesday, April 2, 2008

Tuesday’s game against Western Michigan was cancelled because of a storm system that had passed through South Bend leaving behind rain and frigid temperatures. As of now, a make-up date has not been announced and it is not certain if the game will be played.

If the contest is to be played, however, it will most likely take place sometime in May.

The Irish will take part in an exhibition game against the South Bend Silver Hawks, for the first time ever today at 5:30 p.m. at Coveleski Stadium. The game is in honor of Irish head coach Dave Schrage’s wife, Jody, who passed away after a long battle with cancer in 2007.

This weekend, Notre Dame will try to bounce back from a frustrating three-game Big East series against Cincinnati, in which the Irish dropped two of three.

Starting Friday, Rutgers will travel to Frank Eck Stadium to face the Irish in another conference three-game set that ends Sunday.

Junior David Phelps will take the mound the first game, followed by senior southpaw Wade Korpi, who will pitch on Saturday.

In the series finale sophomore righty, Eric Maust will attempt to close out the Scarlet Knights as the Irish look to advance in the league standings.
