SIU Baseball in Full Swing


By WSIL Sports

CARBONDALE -- It may be cold outside but the baseball Salukis are already in full swing.

SIU (2-2) was picked to finish fifth in the Missouri Valley Conference's preseason poll. The Salukis return six starters and two starting pitchers from last year's team that finished runner-up at the MVC tournament.

In their opening weekend, the Dawgs dropped two of three games to the University of Alabama-Birmingham. This weekend SIU travels back to Alabama to play a weekend set with Jacksonville State.

SIU's first home game is scheduled for Friday, March 1st against Western Kentucky.
