Game Day: Or Not

Saturday baseball cancelled (
Saturday's baseball game between Missouri and North Dakota has been cancelled due to snow and rain in the Columbia area. The game will not be rescheduled. Mizzou won each of the first three games of the series with North Dakota, including a sweep of a Friday doubleheader.

The Tigers will host Arkansas-Pine Bluff in two-game series next Tuesday and Wednesday. The first game of that series will get underway at 6 p.m. on Tuesday

The good news: Some of the other Big 12 teams began conference play this weekend. If Mizzou was in a conference series here in Columbia, they would have likely had to cancel a game or games much more important to the schedule than another matchup with North Dakota.

Garcia made up for a base-running mistake in the second inning — he got caught taking too big a turn around second while Nicholas was caught in a run-down between third and home — with a three-run home run over the right-field wall in the sixth inning.

Pitcher Ryan Clubb is more than O.K. with being labeled the vulture of the Missouri baseball team.

Like the large, dark-feathered bird that sneaks up on its prey, the sophomore pitcher is building a reputation for coming into the fifth inning of games and snatching the victory away from the starting pitcher.

■ RPI update (based on the Pseudo RPI list at
Missouri: 0.496, ranked 152nd, down from 0.509/126th before sweeping UND 3-0
North Dakota: 0.373, ranked 276th, up from 0.358/281st before being swept
