Missouri baseball's home opener pushed back another day

Tuesday, March 5, 2013 | 4:26 p.m. CST

Missouri baseball announced that its game Tuesday against Eastern Michigan at Taylor Stadium would be postponed due to forecasted cold weather.

The Tigers are now scheduled to play a doubleheader against the Eagles on Wednesday, beginning at 1 p.m.

The two games will each be seven innings long instead of the usual nine.

The National Weather Service is forecasting that snow showers are likely after 5 p.m. Tuesday, and is projecting a high temperature of 31 degrees. Its outlook for Wednesday calls for sun with a high near 38 degrees. 

Tuesday's setback is the most recent in a string of cancellations that has kept Missouri off its home field. The Tigers had been scheduled to play a three-game series against Northwestern this past weekend, but heavy snowfall last week squashed the home-opening weekend plans. 

The Tigers, who are off to an 0-6 start to the 2013 season, now haven't played a game since their 8-2 loss at Memphis on Feb. 23.
