LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech’s weekend baseball series
with the Illinois Fighting Illini has beeen cancelled due to weather conditions
in the Chicago area that is preventing the team
from making the trip to Lubbock.
The series opener was scheduled for 4 p.m. on Friday afternoon and was
set to be a four-game series.
The series cancellation now means
that Texas Tech has lost eight home games as Northern
Illinois was forced to cancel a four-game season opening series back
two weeks ago. Ironically, the Northern
Illinois Huskies are part of the Red Raiders new weekend
Texas Tech will hit the road for the
third consecutive week as the Red Raiders will face the Texas State
and Northern Illinois this weekend in San Marcos.
Texas State and Northern
Illinois were scheduled to play a four-game series this weekend at
Bobcat Field and both coaches have graciously allowed the Red Raiders to join in
on the action. The Red Raiders will play
two games against Texas State and two games against Northern Illinois.
