The Conference USA baseball tournament was only able to complete one baseball game on Wednesday at MGM Park in Biloxi with FAU winning 7-4 over FIU in Game 1.
Thunderstorms lingered in the Biloxi area for much of the day, forcing C-USA officials to stop action on several occasions. Lightning struck as close as 1 mile north of the stadium, but very little rain fell at MGM Park.
The Louisiana Tech-Rice contest, which was Game 2 of the day, completed six innings with the Owls leading 6-1. The game, which faced multiple weather delays, will resume in the top of the seventh at 12:30 p.m. Thursday.
Game 4 (UTSA-Charlotte) was pushed back to 9 a.m. Thursday, and Game 3 (Southern Miss-UAB) will begin at the conclusion of the Louisiana Tech-Rice game.
A healthy contingent of Southern Miss fans stayed around MGM Park hoping that the Golden Eagles could get their game in Wednesday night, but C-USA announced at 10:27 p.m. that the USM-UAB contest was pushed back to Thursday.
Any tickets purchased for games on Wednesday that were pushed to Thursday will still be good for those games.
