Concordia vs. Duluth Today – Follow It Online

Concordia  Minnesota Duluth

We are entering the slowest week of the Northern Sun baseball schedule as Concordia University plays Minnesota Duluth today in the only mid-week games on the schedule.  The teams will face off in a double header starting at 9am which will be played at the Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis.  Cost of admission is $5.

The game will feature a clash of undefeated teams as Concordia comes into the game at 4-0 and Minnesota Duluth at 1-0.  Concordia has looked really good so far and is living up to their billing as a preseason conference favorite.  It is interesting that their opponents have gotten progressively higher up the Northern Sun preseason rankings.  Their first opponent, Northern State University, was projected to finish 12th in the Conference and the Golden Bears beat them 4-0 and 19-0.  The second opponent, University of Mary, was projected to finish 10th and Concordia won 4-0 and 8-3.  Today’s opponent, Minnesota Duluth, is projected to finish 8th in the conference and beat University of Mary themselves in a close game on Saturday UMD vs. Mary Recap

One would expect that Concordia will send their preseason Northern Sun Pitcher of the Year, Jake Schmidt to the mound for his 2nd start of the season.  In the season opener he was outstanding in pitching a complete game shutout, giving up only 2 hits and matching his career high with 13 strikeouts.  Schmidt has also been one of the leaders at the plate with a .417 average which is 3rd only to Jon Stockton’s .667 average and Chase Brown’s .571.

Concordia is also providing 2 ways for fans to follow the game today via the Internet.  You can listen live Concordia Radio Broadcast, you can follow the game with their live stats option Concordia Live Stats or do both!
