Rider Rained Out Tuesday
LAWRENCEVILLE-The Rider baseball team, winner of eight of its last 11 games, was rained out Tuesday against Temple. The non-conference game will not be re-scheduled.
Rider (20-29, 13-11 MAAC) will end the regular season this weekend, hosting Longwood University in a four game series Friday and Saturday. Both doubleheaders begin at 12 noon.
Prior to the Saturday doubleheader Rider's four seniors will be honored in their final appearance on the Sonny Pittaro Field.
Rider clinched a playoff berth in the four-team Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship Tournament, May 23-27 at Joe Bruno Stadium in Troy, NY, hosted by Siena.
Rider won six of the eight MAAC series to qualify for the conference championship for the fifth consecutive year and 10th time in the 15 years in the MAAC.
Rider collected its 20th victory of the season last Sunday, the 20th consecutive 20-win season for the Broncs.
The Broncs are 8-8 on the Sonny Pittaro field this spring and will look to improve on that this weekend.
