JACKSON, Miss, (WDAM) - Tuesday’s Mississippi State University-University of Southern Mississippi baseball game at Trustmark Park in Pearl has bumped back a day because of impending inclement weather.

The game has been rescheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday.

The forecast is calling for the likely possibility of heavy rain Tuesday night. Both schools agreed to reschedule the game.

Tickets for the originally-scheduled Tuesday night game will be honored Wednesday.

USM (4-3) won two-of-three games over the weekend with the University of Connecticut, while fifth-ranked State (4-2) rallied in the ninth inning twice to take the final two games of a weekend series from Tulane University.

The Tuesday, March 2nd MSU vs USM College Baseball Showdown scheduled to be played at Trustmark Park will be moved to Wednesday, March 3 at 6pm. After careful monitoring of the approaching weather system with a forecast of heavy rain for Tuesday night, both schools have agreed that it will be best for the teams and fans to reschedule the game from Tuesday to Wednesday at 6p.m. Ticketholders will be able to use their same tickets for the Wednesday night game at 6:00 p.m. at Trustmark Park.
