Rain forces changes to weekend JMU baseball schedule

jmu logoRain moving through the Central Virginia area has forced alterations in the weekend schedule at the PK5 Classic, hosted by VCU at The Diamond.

The Dukes will not play on Saturday, as was planned, but will play a pair of contests on Sunday, facing Monmouth at 2:30 p.m. and wrapping up the weekend against host VCU at 6:30 p.m. Before the schedule changes, JMU was scheduled to take on VCU on Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m., which was pushed back to 6 p.m. before being cancelled, before facing Monmouth on Sunday morning at 10 a.m.

JMU began the PK5 Classic in dramatic fashion, punctuating Friday afternoon’s 9-7, come-from-behind victory over Minnesota with a three-run, walk-off home run from redshirt sophomore Brett Johnson to move to 9-5 on the season. The Dukes have never faced Monmouth in baseball, but hold a 57-43-1 advantage over former conference foe VCU.
