Metro sports roundup: Rain sets up doubleheader finale for ISU

May 19—Indiana State and Missouri State college baseball teams decided to make Saturday a "Let's Play Two" day.

Expected inclement weather in Springfield, Mo., prompted Missouri State officials to postpone Friday's game to Saturday, creating a doubleheader between the top two Missouri Valley Conference teams.

They're the final regular-season games for both teams. ISU wrapped up its first title in the MVC since 2012 with Thursday's 11-4 win to open the series.

The game will be broadcast on WVIG-FM 105.5 radio, with live stats on the university website GoSycamores.com.
