Rain puts CWS on hold

Print Article

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Weather woes hit this year's College World Series for the first time Tuesday, with the afternoon elimination game between Louisville and Auburn suspended after four innings because of rain and the night game between Vanderbilt and Mississippi State postponed until Wednesday.

The NCAA announced Louisville-Auburn would resume at 11 CST. Vanderbilt-Mississippi State and the regularly scheduled Wednesday night game between Florida State and Texas Tech will follow.

Louisville led 4-1 when the TD Ameritrade Park grounds crew rolled out the tarp to cover the field.

Officials sometimes decide to delay or postpone CWS games when rain is imminent, as was the case Tuesday. NCAA director of championships and alliances Randy L. Buhr said after discussions with meteorologists and stakeholders, the thought was that there would be a big enough window of decent weather to get in a significant portion of the game, if not all of it.

Another reason officials wanted to start the afternoon game: There could be more inclement weather later in the week, Buhr said.
