The McCook Community College baseball team is moving up a game this week in attempt to avoid forecasted precipitation Thursday. The nine-inning game against Southeast Community College was moved up a day from Thursday to Wednesday starting at 2 p.m.

Southeast CC (19-10) leads the southern division of the Empire League (Region IX) with a 13-4 record against league opponents and just completed a three-game sweep at Sterling, Colo. Sunday with a 21-5 win over Northeastern Junior College.

MCC (22-17) took two of three weekend games at Scottsbluff against Western Nebraska and moved up third in the South standings with a 13-9 league mark.

This will be the third game of the season between the Indians and the Storm. The two teams split a doubleheader in McCook March 12. They are scheduled to play again this weekend in Beatrice with one game Saturday and a Sunday doubleheader to wrap up their slate against each other.
