    CHICAGO – UIC baseball’s Tuesday match up at Purdue has been moved up to 3 p.m. CT in an effort to maximize play during the day with temperatures expected to dip below freezing as night falls.  The Flames have also rescheduled their home Wednesday contest against Edgewood College to March 26 at 2 p.m.

    UIC will meet Purdue for the third time this season as both squads split a pair of seven-run victories at Les Miller Field on March 8th and 9th.  The Flames will help the Boilermakers debut their new Alexander Field, a facility named in honor of Purdue’s all-time winningest head baseball coach Dave Alexander with 407 victories. 

    Purdue picked up a series win over Evansville this past weekend and holds an overall record of 7-11.  They are paced at the plate by senior Jake Hansen with a batting average of .365, the lone Boiler above .300.  Right-hander Robert Ramer is expected to get the start as he owns a 5.22 ERA and a 2-1 record this season.

    The Flames are fresh off a series win over Youngstown State at Les Miller Field over the weekend to kick off Horizon League action.  UIC triumphed in the rubber match on Sunday by a final of 8-1 as senior pitcher Joey Begel tossed eight innings of one-run ball and allowed just three hits.  Redshirt junior Mike McKinley will get the nod for UIC as the righty will make just his second start of the 2013 campaign.
