April 5, 2013
The University of Minnesota baseball has postponed their inaugural Siebert Field game due to weather. The first conference game against the Ohio State Buckeyes will be resumed tomorrow on Saturday April 6, 2013 at 1:00p.m. The game was suspended in the top of the sixth inning with the Gophers leading, 3-0.
After five innings, Minnesota was led by Andy Henkemeyer, who was 3-3 so far in the game. Henkemeyer, who hit a grand slam in the old Siebert Field against St. Thomas on May 1, 2012, had the first hit in the new Siebert today. Dan Olinger was 1-3 with a run scored and a RBI.
Tom Windle pitched all five innings and allowed just two hits. He struck out five in the opening game. OSU's Jaron Long also pitched five innings, allowed eight hits and three runs, two of which were earned.
The game marks the first Big Ten Conference game played at Siebert since 2009.
