A threat of rain has pushed the four-game series between Bemidji State University and No. 19 Minnesota State University Mankato up one day to Friday and Saturday at BSU Baseball Field in Bemidji, Minn.

The Beavers (13-23, 10-14 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference) and No. 19 Mavericks (30-7, 25-3 NSIC) will play at 3 and 5 p.m. Friday with 1 and 3 p.m. start times for Saturday/

Bemidji State is coming off a doubleheader split Wednesday to Minot State University. MiSU took the first game of the day, 5-2, while BSU came back to win game two, 5-4.

----------------------------------------------------

The Bemidji State University softball team wraps up the home portion of its 2017 schedule this weekend by hosting Wayne State College (Neb.) and Augustana University (S.D.) April 22 and 23, respectively.

The Beavers (20-15, 10-10 NSIC) will honor their four seniors before facing the Wildcats (11-33, 5-15 NSIC) Saturday, April 22 for a doubleheader starting at 1 p.m.

BSU will then host the Vikings (31-11, 16-4 NSIC) Sunday, April 23 for the final home series slated to start at noon.

----------------------------------------------------

Rain postponed the Bemidji Lumberjacks baseball game yesterday with Alexandria.  That will be made up on May 25th.

----------------------------------------------------

Twins manager Paul Molitor was ejected on Thursday in the Twins’ loss to the Cleveland Indians.

With the tying run at the plate in the bottom of the eighth, Jason Castro checked his swing but the home plate umpire said he went around and didn’t even appeal the call to third base ump.

That’s when Molitor lost it.

It’s only the fifth ejection for Molitor since he took over in 2015.

Which is no where near the pace Ron Gardenhire had during his 13 years of managing the Twins. Gardenhire was ejected 73 times from 2002-14.

----------------------------------------------------

For the second time in three years the Vikings will open the season on Monday Night Football. They’ll host the New Orleans Saints, Monday, Sept. 11 from U.S. Bank Stadium.

Interestingly, the Saints are the team Adrian Peterson made his most recent visit to as a free agent – and they’re still in communication because the visit went well, according to the Times-Picayune.

Other notable games include an additional Monday Night Football game against the Chicago Bears; another Thanksgiving matchup with the Detroit Lions; a trip to London to play the Cleveland Browns and they’ll be in Green Bay for Saturday Night Football on Dec. 23.

The Monday Morning Quarterback’s Peter King is reporting that former Vikings running back Adrian Peterson would be willing to play for $5 million or less if the right team gives him a call.

ESPN reported in March that Peterson wouldn’t play for anything less than $8 million a year – a report that Peterson quickly shot down as fake news.

----------------------------------------------------

Believe it or not, the Wild believe they can become the fifth team in NHL history to win a best-of-seven series after losing the first three games.

Minnesota’s mentality going into Game 4: One shift, one period and one game at a time. That’s exactly what they did in a 2-0 win to survive Game 4 in St. Louis Wednesday night. Now it’s every shift of Game 5 back in St. Paul on Saturday.
