Since the season began nearly a month ago, the Gophers baseball team has been on the go nonstop.
A typical week has Minnesota playing Friday, Saturday and Sunday, before arriving back in the Twin Cities during the early hours of Monday morning. Then the team practices Tuesday and Wednesday and heads back on the road Thursday.
If that’s not enough, players have class and schoolwork to manage.
The Gophers dropped two of three games in the weather-shortened Chanticleer Classic over the weekend.
Minnesota was scheduled to play four games, but impending weather issues in Myrtle Beach, S.C., forced a schedule change.
The Gophers lost to Elon 5-2 on Saturday in the first game of the series. They came back and beat Coastal Carolina 5-2 in the second game of the Saturday doubleheader before falling 4-1 to UNC Greensboro on Sunday afternoon.
