DAVIS, Calif. -- Mother Nature has forced a change in the schedule for the UC Davis baseball team's three-game series against UC Irvine this weekend as rain in the Davis area has postponed Friday's series opener.
The two teams will now play a series-opening doubleheader on Saturday (April 25) at 11:30 a.m., with game two to follow approximately 30 minutes after the end of game one, with the series finale still scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m.
The Aggies (17-20 overall, 3-9 in the Big West Conference) enter the weekend following one of the team's most dominating pitching performances of the season, holding Saint Mary's to just two hits in a 3-1 win over the Gaels in a mid-week clash on Tuesday at Dobbins Stadium. UC Davis has won nine of its last 12 at home and are 10-6 within the friendly confines this season.
UC Irvine entered the week with a 25-14 overall record and an 8-1 mark in league, standing a game-and-a-half back of first-place Cal Poly. The Anteaters have lost three of their last four, dropping a mid-week game at Loyola Marymount and two-of-three to San Diego State at home last week. In its last Big West series, UCI swept Cal State Northridge at Anteater Ballpark.
