It is a crucial weekend for the UNK Loper baseball team.
Tied for 5th in the MIAA, the Lopers host Missouri Southern in a four game weekend series Thursday thru Saturday. They moved up the series one day because of rain forecast Sunday..
The Lopers have won 3 of 4 in each of their last 2 series, over the Washburn Icabods and Pittsburg State Gorillas.
A four game sweep or even taking 3 of 4 this weekend should give the Lopers fourth place by themselves and an opportunity to host a first round MIAA game.
When the Lopers took 3 of 4 from Pittsburg, coach Damon Day won his 300th game as Loper coach..
It's a great milestone but the coach is focusing on the next game.
Coach Day has led the Lopers to the NCAA Tournament four times, as well as back to back 30 win seasons in 2007 and 2008 for the first time in program history.
