Heavy rain pushes baseball to Valentine's Day

JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. - For nearly 36 straight hours, Mossy Creek has been flooded with unrelenting rain forcing Carson-Newman baseball to change its game against King for the second time in a week moving Wednesday's contest to Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m. from the Silver Diamond Baseball Complex.

Off to its best start since 2014, Carson-Newman is 7-1 and looking to record an 8-1 mark out of the blocks for the first time this millennium. To find the last time the Eagles were 8-1 was during the 1999 campaign when the squad reached the Division II World Series.

After starting the home slate 4-0, the Eagles are seeking a 5-0 beginning to play at the Silver Diamond Baseball Complex for the first time since 2014. 

Carson-Newman will host Northwood for four games starting on Friday at 2 p.m. All of the games this weekend can be found on cneagles.com/live will video and audio streams available on the Eagle Sports Network. Stay tuned to @CNathletics on Twitter for the latest updates.
