Rain wipes out Southern’s baseball games at Texas Southern

HOUSTON — Rain washed out Southern’s Southwestern Athletic Conference Western Division doubleheader with Texas Southern on Saturday at Sylvester Turner Park.

So, Southern (2-9. 0-3) and TSU (5-12, 2-1) will play a doubleheader at noon Sunday, and the third game of the series will not be played. That third game may have to be played, if necessary, later in the season.

“If it stops (Sunday), we’ll play at least one,” Southern coach Roger Cador said. “We’ll see what happens.”

Southern will stick with its projected starters of junior right-hander Santos Saldivar and junior John Thigpen, in that order.
