Rain postpones Ole Miss’ series opener against Long Beach State

Published 9:03 pm Friday, March 2, 2018

For the second straight weekend, inclement weather has delayed Ole Miss’ baseball series.

Ole Miss’ series opener at Long Beach State has been postponed because of rain. The teams will play a doubleheader Saturday beginning at 4 p.m. CT with the second game to start approximately 45 minutes after the conclusion of the first.

It’s the first road trip of the season for the ninth-ranked Rebels, who began the season with an 8-0 homestand. Ole Miss, fresh off a midweek win over Murray State, swept Tulane last weekend in a series that had its opener postponed by rain in the fifth inning — a game Ole Miss went on to win 5-4 when it continued last Saturday.
