LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Louisiana-Lafayette’s baseball team will be delayed in its quest to continue its current six-game win streak.
Rain and a saturated Gary Hogan Field forced postponement of the Ragin’ Cajuns’ scheduled Friday night game at Arkansas-Little Rock, which would have opened their Sun Belt Conference weekend series.
Weather permitting, the Cajuns (10-5, 3-0 Sun Belt) and the Trojans (4-8, 1-2) will now play a single game at 6 p.m. Saturday and will play a doubleheader at noon Sunday.
Cajuns coach Tony Robichaux said Friday’s original scheduled starting pitcher, freshman righthander Evan Guillory (1-0), will now start Saturday’s game. Freshman lefthander Gunner Leger (2-0) is the probable starter for Sunday’s opener, with Sunday’s second game pitcher still to be determined.
All three games will air on KPEL-FM (96.5)
The Cajuns had two earlier games this week, a Tuesday home game against UNO and a Wednesday road contest at Southern’s Lee-Hines Field, both postponed because of rain and wet field conditions.
