ECU has yet another schedule change thanks to incoming inclement weather, something that has become a norm this season.
ECU and UConn will no longer play on Friday, a game originally scheduled for 6:30 p.m., ECU announced during Thursday nights 5-1 win. Instead, the Pirates will have a Saturday doubleheader with the first game starting at 9 a.m.
ECU Athletics announced that original single-day Saturday tickets would be valid for both games of the doubleheader.
The first game will be a seven-inning game, which is required by the AAC for a travel day game in a doubleheader. The second game will be a full nine-inning game.
It’s the third straight Saturday doubleheader for the Pirates. ECU had one against Houston two weeks ago and one against No. 1 UCLA last weekend.
ECU also played two more doubleheader’s earlier in the season, a Friday on opening day against Radford and the following weekend on a Saturday against Monmouth. There was also the LeClair Classic, where ECU had a game suspended and finished the next day in a fashion similar to a doubleheader.
ECU is 6-2 in doubleheader’s this season, undefeated before being swept at UCLA last weekend.
