The Dakota State University baseball team continues their Dakota Athletic Conference (DAC) action this weekend. The Trojans will head to Rapid City, S.D. DSU plays Minot State in a four-game series at the Post 22 Field. The doubleheader starts at 11 a.m. (MT) on Saturday and 9 a.m. (MT) on Sunday. It was originally scheduled to play in Minot, N.D., but forced to relocate the series due to wet playing field conditions and colder weather forecast.
DSU is 3-23 overall record and 1-7 in the Dakota Athletic Conference. The Trojans recorded two wins at home last week. DSU split with Briar Cliff on April 6. Dakota State notched their first conference win (7-5) on April 10 versus Mayville State. Minot State is 8-16 and winless in six DAC games this season. The Beavers snapped their eight-game losing streak on April 14. Minot State defeated Dickinson State 3-2 in a nine-inning non-conference game in Minot, N.D.
Dakota State took four games in five meetings from Minot State last year. The Trojans won three games in the four-game series with the Beavers in Madison, S.D. on April 10-11, 2010. The last time both teams met was in the DAC Baseball Post-season Tournament first-round in Jamestown, N.D., where the Trojans defeated Minot State 13-3 in seven innings on May 8, 2010.
