Tournament Day 4: Weather Wins

Rain delayed the start of today's first game between Penn State and Minnesota. Once underway, the Nittany Lions and Golden Gophers managed to reach the seventh inning stretch before rain forced the field to be covered again. This time the rain prevailed and the remaining two and a half innings will conclude tomorrow morning beginning at 10:00am. When, and if, play resumes, Penn State is leading Minnesota, 3-2.

Saturday's scheduled second game between Ohio State and the PSU/Minnesota winner will take place Sunday at 12:05pm. That game could be the championship game, if OSU wins. If the Buckeyes fall in Sunday's 12:05pm start, there would be one more game at 3:35pm to determine the Big Ten Tournament champion.

Of course, more rain is in the forecast, so we may end up with no more baseball played at all. In which case, I presume Ohio State will be declared the champion on the basis of its 3-0 record thus far.
