Schedule Change: Tuesday's doubleheader against Penn St.-Harrisburg, previously scheduled for Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., has been indefinitely postponed. No reschedule date has been established.

Series History: Nonconference action continues on Thursday when F&M hosts its home opener against York. The Diplomats own a tenuous 24-23 lead in the all-time series, which includes a split in last year's doubleheader.

F&M returns to Centennial Conference (CC) play on Saturday, hosting Haverford for two games. The Diplomats lead the Fords 25-15 all-time, splitting two contests last season.

A Look at York: The Spartans come to Lancaster on Thursday with a 12-8 record, but doubleheader sweeps by No. 11 Messiah and Frostburg St. give York a 3-5 mark in their last eight.

The Spartans' Joanna Marmo leads the team with a .424 average, while Carleigh Ruleman is hitting .333 with four home runs already this season.

A Look at Haverford: The Fords have been streaky early on, beginning the season with four straight losses, followed by four consecutive wins, before another 0-4 stretch brought them to 4-8 on the season.

Last Week: F&M opened CC play on Saturday, dropping two games to McDaniel. In game one, two homers from Lexi Piccinich were not enough as the Green Terror scored seven runs in their last three at-bats to win 13-5 in six innings.

The Diplomats scattered six hits in game two, but were unable to score as McDaniel eased to a 7-0 victory.
