Baseball Game with Hanover Declared No Contest

GreenPitchTERRE HAUTE, IND. -- The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology baseball series finale with Hanover College was declared a no contest due to dense fog in the outfield.

The two teams battled to a 2-2 score in the bottom of the fourth inning, before a thunderstorm rolled in and caused a 75-minute rain delay.  Following the rain delay, Hanover retired a Rose-Hulman batter to send the game into the fifth inning tied at 2-2. 

Following a Hanover scoreless fifth inning, the game was declared a no contest.  Fog formed in the outfield and caused an unplayable condition. 

All statistics from the game are nullified, and the game is considered to have not been played.  Due to Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference baseball scheduling guidelines, the contest will not be made up. 

Rose-Hulman stands 19-8 on the season and 10-3 in HCAC play, while Hanover remains 17-12 and 7-7 in league games.  The Fightin' Engineers return to action on Tuesday at Franklin College.
