Mother Nature Takes 2-1 Series Lead on CSUN Baseball


For the second time in as many days, hard-hitting Mother Nature slugged her way to a victory at Matador Field, postponing the scheduled game between Cal State Northridge and Washington State. After the teams played the series opener on Thursday afternoon, both Friday's and Saturday's games were called off due to heavy rain.

Late Friday night and early Saturday morning, Mother Nature could be seen hitting her spots with excellent command and executing when the opportunity presented itself.

Saturday was set to feature the third of four games on the weekend between the Matadors and Cougars. While Friday's contest was cancelled, Saturday's has been rescheduled tentatively as part of a doubleheader on Sunday, March 2nd.

Although the weekend is facing elimination being down 2-1 to Mother Nature, the Matadors and Cougars have the chance to reclaim the series on Sunday.

"The only way to beat Mother Nature is to 'keep making pitches,'" said CSUN head coach Greg Moore. "DORS Baseball has Father Time in its bullpen. He's getting loose now."

First pitch of the first game of Sunday's doubleheader is scheduled for 10 a.m. The second game of the doubleheader will begin approximately 40 minutes following the end of Game 1.

Fans are encouraged to monitor, @GoMatadors and @CSUNBaseball on Twitter, and the CSUN Front Row App for schedule and time updates for this weekend.
