PORTSMOUTH (Updated as of 7 p.m. Monday) - With the latest bout of inclement weather to hit the area, Shawnee State baseball has announced a change in schedule for the upcoming week. The Bears have canceled their home game that was scheduled for Tuesday against Kentucky State and will now travel to Bryan on Tuesday for a single game at 5 p.m. On Wednesday, they will head to Montreat for a doubleheader Wednesday that will get underway at 1 p.m.
The Bears currently sit at 10-7 overall, including a 3-0 start to the Mid-South Conference schedule after a series sweep that included a pair of walk-off wins against Rio Grande inside Branch Rickey Park last weekend. The game at Bryan will see a meeting of the two teams that were supposed to meet up in January. Both meetings against Bryan (10-9) and Montreat (8-7) will be the first-ever in program history. On Friday, the Bears will play their first MSC road series as they travel to No. 10 Cumberland (11-5, 2-1 MSC). The Bulldogs were selected as the conference favorite in the preseason poll.
