Steady rain in the Ann Arbor area all day today (Tuesday, April 14) has forced the cancellation of Michigan’s scheduled contest with Toledo and changed Wednesday’s (April 15) game with Eastern Michigan to a pair of seven-inning contests beginning at 3:05 p.m. No makeup date for the Toledo game has been announced.
So that’s two games versus EMU today to make up for the lost game yesterday. Just what we need, more innings of midweek pitching. I say that only half facetiously. We do need to get some guys work. I haven’t seen anything about starting pitchers, but I’ll throw my guesses out as Brandon Sinnery and Kevin Vangheluwe. Kolby Wood threw a few times this weekend, but could be available. The pitcher I’d like to see get this start is Mike Wilson, just to get him an easy start (7 innings puts less pressure on the starter to go deep into games). It probably won’t happen, but its an idea.
I’m hoping we get some carnage as Michigan tries to avenge the loss at home last week. The season series is tied at one a piece, each won by the visiting team.
Update: Miller started first game (just 2 IP). Paul and Tim went head to head in the Michigan Baseball Tricycle race. No word yet on who one. I’ll have them recap later.
Michigan State Weekend
Also in that link from MGoBlue, the start time to Friday’s game has been moved to 3:05 from 6:05pm. No audio will be available, which blows, but they will have live stats. Their press box at MSU’s new McLane Stadium (named after Spartan alum and owner of the Astros, Drayton McLane) is just nearing the completion stage, so it appears they don’t have audio installed yet.
