Joplin, Mo. -- The baseball double-header with Central Oklahoma will not be played and the series has been cancelled.
Rain that has already fallen in the Joplin area and a forecast for heavy rain today has led to the decision to cancel the games between the two teams.
The Lions are 25-15 and 19-13 in the MIAA, currently in fourth place in the league. Southern will travel this Friday and Saturday and take on Southwest Baptist. The teams will play a single game on Friday at 3 pm and two games on Saturday at 1 pm.
