PITTSBURGH -- Point Park University baseball maintained its spot at No. 21 in the NAIA Top 25 Poll released this week. That was about the only thing that didn't change for the Pioneers for the given week.
Point Park (25-6, 10-2 KIAC) went 5-1 since the last Top 25 ranking to stay situated at No. 21. The Pioneers were one of only four teams nationwide to stay in the same spot during a week that had a lot of fluctuation in the poll.
Meanwhile, the Pioneers' game schedule has taken on some changes. Mid-week games versus Milligan (Tenn.) and Ohio Christian were postponed with the threat of rain and field conditions. Also, the upcoming home series with KIAC opponent Brescia (Ky.) has been pushed back a day and also changed venues.
KIAC leading Point Park will host fourth-place Brescia (12-23, 6-6 KIAC) for four games April 11-12 at Kelly Automotive Park in Butler, Pa. The ballpark is formerly known as Pullman Park and is located at 100 Pullman Park Place, Butler, PA 16001. Game times are Saturday at 4 p.m. (DH) and Sunday at 12 p.m. (DH).
Admission for the series with Brescia as required by Kelly Automotive Park is $4 adults, $2 students and $1 for children under 12 years old. All tickets will be sold at the gate.
A make-up date for the postponed matchup with Milligan (Tenn.) is to be announced. The Pioneers will make up their matchup with Ohio Christian on April 16 with a home game at 2 p.m.
For the series with Brescia, the Point Park Sports Network will broadcast live audio on Saturday at 4 p.m. and live video on Sunday at 12 p.m. Live stats will be available for all games. Watch/Listen Live, Live Stats
