Game Times Modified for Softball Weekend Series at Bradley
May 3, 2013
Rain and soggy field conditions at Laura Bradley Field in Peoria, Ill., have forced schedule changes to this weekend's regular season series at Bradley. The Bears (20-28, 11-11) and Braves (22-27,7-15) will now play a single game on Saturday beginning at 4:00 p.m. The teams will conclude the series, and the regular season, with a 12:00 p.m. doubleheader on Sunday.
Missouri State has clinched a spot in the Valley Tournament, which will be held in Omaha, Neb. from May 9-11. The Bears' seed is yet to be determined, however, due to other schedule changes in this weekend's league games, MSU is locked into the opening round of games.
The Bears and Bradley split four games last season. The Braves took two-of-three in the regular season. MSU defeated Bradley in the opening round of the MVC Tournament, 4-1, ending the Braves season. Missouri State holds the all-time series lead, 49-26.
