We’re pushed back to 1:30. Rain is supposed to be on its way.
WSU lineup - 2B Baez, CF Jones, C Lassley, DH Springer, 1B Coy, RF Bennett, 3B O’Brien, LF Bascue, SS Grimes
Coaches have been waiting for a chance to get O’B more at-bats. He is hitting .349 in MVC games and swinging the bat well lately. He’s been stuck behind WSU’s leading hitter Lassley at catcher and Springer at DH, however. Today, Chris gets a chance at third base, where he started last season. Chance Sossamon is taking infield at shortstop, so I presume he may be an option to help out on the infield with Erik Harbutz out.
