Today’s game was originally scheduled for noon then was moved up to 10am to hopefully avoid impending weather. The rain came though and just didn’t let up. After a four-hour delay, the coaches eventually decided to call it. Today’s game will not be made up.

The cancellation gives Illinois baseball a two-game sweep over the Hoosiers for the weekend. They have a 32-6-1 overall record and a 10-1 conference record which puts them atop of the Big Ten.
Illinois’ season will pick up on Tuesday with a 6pm midweek game at Illinois Field against Eastern Illinois.
