Tarleton Baseball weekend series with Eastern Illinois pushed back due to weather


STEPHENVILLE – Due to freezing temperatures and travel difficulties, the Tarleton and Eastern Illinois weekend four-game series has been pushed back by a day.

Originally scheduled for a Friday game, Saturday doubleheader and Sunday finale, the Texans and Panthers will now begin the series on Saturday, Feb. 26, at 5 p.m. There will be a doubleheader on Sunday, Feb. 27, beginning at 2 p.m., and the series finale will come on Monday, Feb. 28 at 1 p.m.

The game on Saturday will be the first game played in program history between the schools. The Panthers are members of the Ohio Valley Conference. They placed seventh out of 11 teams with a 25-23 overall and 14-16 record in conference last season.

Tarleton is coming off back-to-back wins over UTSA and UIW. They run-ruled UTSA on Sunday in seven innings, winning 12-1 to avoid the series sweep. The game vs. UIW on Tuesday was a much different ballgame as Tarleton won 1-0 behind 6.0 scoreless innings from Isiah Campa on a cold night where Tarleton had two hits.
