Rio Grande Sports Information
    BECKLEY, W.Va. - For the University of Rio Grande baseball team, it was one of those Mondays that we all dread having to face.
    The RedStorm's doubleheader with West Virginia University-Tech was delayed at the start while the playing surface at Linda Epling Stadium was cleared of leftover snow and then, once play actually got underway, the Golden Bears recorded a pair of walkoff victories.
    Tech scored four times in its final at bat to claim a 6-5 win in the opener, while parlaying a pair of two-out wild pitches in the bottom of the ninth inning into a 3-2 extra-inning triumph in the nightcap.
    The sweep left Rio Grande at 6-10 for the season, while the Golden Bears improved to 6-8.
